    Actors vs. Writers: Who’s Right When It Comes to Character?

    I don’t agree with this. Granted I’ve never worked with actors or adaptations of my book. I could be talking out of my ass. But movies, unlike books, are collaborative creations. Everyone’s got to share the same vision or it won’t work. When it comes together, you get Star Wars. When you don’t, you get Dune (the David Lynch one). Art works best when a single person is driving the vision, the idea. That’s why bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc. persist. Even though the art they make needs all of them together, one single person writes the music and lyrics (usually). It’s also…

    Hot Girls You Don’t Know About: Hannah Fierman

    All right, since you can’t get enough of Morgan Smith Goodwin, here’s another. Let me introduce you to my new jam — Hannah Fierman.

Instead of getting up, putting in a videotape, playing it, then taking out and hiding it again, there were files to bury in obscure directories. I had to learn how to masturbate vertically instead of horizontally. It’s so hard to have an identity in porn these days, especially on the Internet. Not only do you have archives of the past to draw upon, every other scene out…

    My Top Five Favorite Porn Stars: VHS Edition (A.K.A. The Old School)

    You’d never know it to meet me, but I’ve always been fascinated by the sex industry. Strippers, prostitutes, toy makers, hire-able dominatrices. But I only observe from a distance. I’m sure I’d fall into a quivering bowl of jelly if any of those assertive women approached me. In 1996 (thereabouts), my dad got a “black box“. This was when cable was pretty basic — PPV was the best it had. No On Demand or music channels. What I would do is wait until I was sure my dad had gone to bed. And this happened rarely because my dad always fell asleep on the couch with the light on, watching…
