This Ain’t Not The View XXX – A New Podcast

ThisAintNotTheViewXXX_1400px

So, Rog of RogReviews.com, Dr. Chauntelle of ChauntelleTibbals.com and myself have joined forces and are going to throw our hat into the podcasting ring, with a casual chat about the industry.  We’re calling the new venture This Ain’t Not The View XXX and we’re hoping to have other people sit in on future installments.  We took some inspiration from This Week in Tech by recording our first episode in person at a trade show… our next episode will be recorded remotely via Skype and the plan it to be recording new episodes biweekly.

The show will live at ThisAintNotTheViewXXX.com

We hope you enjoy the episode.

A Small Site Tweak to the Matchups Page

Tweaks 1

Got an email today:

Dear IAFD,

I’m trying to ID the source of a scene featuring Leslie Taylor and a female named Caroline . Your page of pairings lists 3 females with that name , and 6 movies, none of which matches the scene I have on file.

I suspect my main problem is that most performers have used more than one name … While IAFD lists only a matching performer’s ”principal” name on that matchups page , the file provider may have used one of the AKAs .

Currently my alternative is to search either ALL the headshots (there are 646 , and I find many females ”don’t look much like” their headshots) , or LOTS of movies (in this case , since I’m looking at a file from 2002 , I may only have to check 280 of the 807 movies in his list , released in 2002 or earlier). Either way isn’t ”fun” … and , in fact , neither is guaranteed to work .

If IAFD printed out (on the matchups page) all AKA names along with the “principal” name , that would make the ID task a lot easier . But , that might
also upset the appearance of the matchups page, especially for performers that have a lot of AKA.s .

[…]

At present , I have no idea if either of these changes could easily be made , or would be of interest to other IAFD visitors . And there may be something else you have in mind that could also help … (I have other scenes to ID , too).

So, it took all of 30 seconds to add the performer AKA to the MatchUps page and tweak the CSS to make it look pretty, so that’s what we did.

Enjoy.

Congrats to the XBiz Award Winners!

2Well, we’re a little sad. Another year goes by, and it’s merely an honor to be nominated… FreeOnes took the Adult Site of the Year: Fan Site award for the whatever year running (but who’s counting?). Along with them, a bunch of other people won awards, here they are. It’s almost 4 AM on the East Coast, so I’m calling it a night with only the most minimal data analysis…

On the performer side, the big winners were Carter Cruise and James Deen who both won 3 awards.

The big winner was Eli Cross’ Wetwork (2014) which won SEVEN awards; Not Jersey Boys XXX: A Porn Musical (2014) and Second Chances (2014) were tied for second-most honored with 4 wins apiece.
