Today, June 4, marks the birthdays of Henri Pachard, Bruce Seven and Jack Baker. Henri Pachard would have been 73, Bruce Seven – 66, and Jack Baker – 65 had they not been taken from us before their time.
With his name splashed across every website and newspaper in the world and a massive manhunt currently underway in at least two countries, Luka Magnotta, the infamous Quebec resident who last week graduated from filming himself killing cats to filming himself killing people, seems to have finally gotten some of that publicity he so desperately craved.
For those not in the know, last Saturday, Luka (real name Eric Newman) uploaded an 11 minute video to a site catering to fans of the macabre. In it Luka can be seen hacking up, cannibalizing and performing sex acts on the corpse of an Asian man (identified as Jun Lin, a Concordia University student). Three days later, as police were discovering Lin’s bloody torso stuffed inside a suitcase behind a grimy apartment in Montreal’s west-end, where Luka was believed to have resided, another gruesome find was making headlines across Canada, namely packages containing a hand and a foot in mail addressed to the federal Conservative and Liberal parties’ offices in Ottawa. The interior detail visible in the horrific video matched Luka’s blood caked apartment and, to nobody’s shock, the foot and hand turned out to belong to the person being dismembered in the video.
As the media pounced, news of Luka’s lurid past began to emerge including that he had worked previously as a model, stripper, escort and once even auditioned to be a contestant on a Canadian reality show. There was also the rumours that he performed in some gay porn films. This is where we come in.
Last night, iafd editors (myself included) undertook the difficult task of trying to uncover some of Luka’s past porn work.
The very next month, Magnotta arrived in Florida where he did one still shoot and one video for Lisa Turner’s Badpuppy Enterprises. She has since released a statement through the company website noting the “very creepy connection” and declared that Luka and Badpuppy had not had any contact since the shoot.
Magnotta’s most recent activity appears to be a scene he shot for an Ohio based website called DaddyMugs.com, sometime, we believe, in 2009. In the video, Luka bottoms for the chubby, middle-aged fellow for whom the site is named.
A versatile performer (he both pitched and catched), Luka seemed to change his hair style/color and name with each performance, often settling on simply Luka but sometimes opting for Justin or Jimmy.
For a guy that has seen thousands of porn films over the years, I couldn’t shake how uneasy I felt when I screened some of Luka’s scenes last night. I know this might sound silly, but behind those dark eyes seemed to lurk something sinister and his voice, deep, coarse and grating, with a hint of an accent, proved impossible to forget. As a performer, Luka came off as cool, selfish and content to merely go through the motions, something at least one of the men he was paired with seemed to take note of. In “Monster Cock Jocks 25”, a blonde fellow spends a few awkward minutes flirting with Luka to no avail. As the action commences, he can be seen to look at the camera person ever-so-briefly, in a way that conveys: ‘Something just isn’t right about this guy.’
Something’s not right indeed.
The media might want to keeping tagging Luka with the porn “star” moniker but a better one might be porn “dud.” A paltry 8 scenes spanning a near decade, it’s quite apparent that not even the porn industry was much interested in him.
I first met Porno Dan in Berlin in 2009 when he brought his Fuck a Fan over to Europe. Most of it was a blurred memory due to massive amount of alcohol we all imbibed. I’m not even sure if the Fuck a Fan scenes there were shot due to logistical problems, but my friend Malte and I had a standing offer to attend one of them in the States. Except, I wasn’t sure if he had invited us to visit or participate.
I finally made that set visit 3 weeks ago even though it was abrupt because I had to run off to shoot the XRCO Awards. The concept of Fuck a Fan is that you have 3 fans or wanna-be-pornstars who would engage in some silly contest which is also broadcasted online. The winner would get to fuck the feature girl which was Jenna Presley, while second place would get a blowjob, and third place would get a mere handjob. Jenna was assisted by fluffers, Jennifer White and Nikki Sexx. Porno Dan would be the MC of this contest, and I’m sure he got some perks from the girls on the side even though I didn’t stay long enough to watch the sex scenes. As he would say, “Everyone’s a winner on Fuck a Fan”. Well, everyone except for the staff who have to clean up the mess.
