Praising the Load at Le Chateau

Two weeks ago, I paid a visit to “Le Chateau”, otherwise known as Tim Von Swine‘s pad. Timmy’s one of the most straight-up shooters in porn, both in directing style and personality. He’ll tell you like it is whether good or bad so he may ruffle a couple of feathers here and there. So it’s always loads of fun to drink beer and listen to his experiences and opinions about the industry even while distracted by the NHL playoffs.

Anyway that day, sweet Chastity Lynn did a blowbang for Mike John’s Praise the Load 6. I wasn’t one of the participants. No secret POV scene for me either. Who do I look like? Rog? The only thing I could get out of Chastity was a podcast. I stayed far away once the scene began but was not able to sit because you can never be sure about the furniture at a porn house. I took a couple of pictures of Chastity, but I won’t post any images of the debauchery.

However, Tim’s got some of the debauchery over at his blog. Go check it out.

Trailer Porn: Star Trek: TNG : A XXX Parody

You would think as someone who should be paying attention to the porn industry, I wouldn’t have first stumbled across this trailer over on Wil Wheaton’s blog, but it’s true.

I don’t know if I am as die hard a trekkie as perhaps I once was… I grew up on TOS (The Original Series) and liked TNG, but Voyager and Deep Space 9 left me cold, and then I was back for Enterprise (and I think I may have been the only one..) and from the looks of things, I am back for the XXX Parody… Sam Hain once again put Kimberly Kane into a red wig and he set off to remake another favorite sci-fi show.  And the trailer looks great.

Here’s the SFW one:

There’s a NSFW trailer over at the Revolution X / Digital Sin site:

http://axxxparody.newsensations.com/startrekxxx/index.html

Their promo blurb sums things up thusly:

Join Picard (Giles), Riker (Rocco Reed), Crusher (Kimberly Kane), and the rest of the Enterprise crew as they boldly go into the final frontier of adult cinema! While en route to Starbase 112, the Enterprise detects strange electromagnetic readings emanating from a barren M-Class planet. Upon further investigation, it is discovered that the source of energy is in fact a box containing Tasha Yar (India Summer), the long dead former Chief of Security of the ship, in cryosleep. Is she the real Tasha Yar? Is she a clone? Or is she something completely different? Follow all of your favorite characters as they engage in the biggest sexual adventure of the 24th century!

So it has the flavor of Yesterday’s Enterprise with some extra minor characters from the TNG universe thrown in to keep the pairings varied — Dana DeArmond as Ensign Ro and Bobbi Starr as Dr. Leah Brahms; not that I’m complaining!

Also in the cast are April O’Neil as Counselor Troi (who looks fucking awesome in the big curly wig), Tyler Knight as Geordi La Forge, Xander Corvus as Data,  Lee Bang as the Klingon, Lt. Worf and Tim Cannon as the lone red shirt, er, security officer.

Happily, I am unable to make any jokes about the cast’s “enhanced ample nacelles” because our gals are all-natural to boot!

The attention to detail in the trailer is pretty amazing — the bridge looks like the bridge, the music sounds like the music, the costumes look like the costumes, the snozzberries taste like snozzberries!

Coming off his triumph of X-Files “parodies” (which were more homage than parody) Sam Hain seems to have another one teed up for success, and it comes as no surprise that Eddie Powell is along for the ride as his cinematographer.

Gawker’s sci-fi blog, io9, had low-res video interviews with Bobbi Starr and Giles Aston (who, apparently, is a Patrick Stewart impersonator on the convention circuit and doesn’t do any hardcore in the film):

To quote The Bourne Ultimatum: “How ya doin?”

Still struggling a little to find a POV for the blog, but today I’m feeling “funny videos with pornstars.”

Submitted, then, without much comment, the most recent episode of “Munchie the Agent” in which Aurora Snow takes Munchie to task for not doing enough to get her mainstream career kickstarted.

(OK, slight comment: Munchie is feline… and speaks like Henritetta Pussycat from Mr. Rogers.)

Trailer Porn: Lost and Found

I thought maybe I’d start a new section highlighting some of the more memorable trailers to make their away across my mediafeed.   As with mainstream movies, a good trailer can make a shitty movie look pretty good, and there’s nothing wrong with highlighting fine examples of the craft.

So kudos to the editor who cut together our inaugural entry, the trailer for New Sensations: Romance’s upcoming release Eddie Powell‘s “Lost and Found

Initially, it looks like a Doritos ad — it captures the commerical sheen that Madison Ave ascribes to the “modern stoner” generation perfectly — but then we see Kimberly Kane and we know it’s not nachos we’re supposed to be eating. (Zing!)

The trailer sets up the plot – Allie Haze loves her dog, Xander Corvus has a crush on Allie… so a plot is hatched between Xander and his roommate Chad Alva to “borrow” Allie’s dog, so Xander can help her find it.  I suspect that some sex happens along the way (capping with an Allie/Xander pairing, perhaps?) but we’re not given any hint of it in this trailer.  Also on hand are Allie’s poster-maker friend Lexi Belle and Chad’s girlfriend played by the aforementioned Kimberly Kane (who really needs a more recent headshot on our site… must make a note to get on that…)

I have no idea how the movie is going to be, but the trailer is as shaggily charming as they come.

Lost and Found hits the streets on 2/28/11.

One week after AEE: introducing morbidthoughts

It’s been one week since the 2011 AVN Expo, and I am still physically fatigued. I  put  myself through this every year because the perks of meeting up with so many of my friends at one time, porn star or not, is too great. IAFD is maintained by a group of volunteers, and this is the one time a year several of us convene together in person to talk about issues regarding our website and the adult industry in general. One of the byproducts of this meeting is the following.

You may notice that this blog entry is the first post from someone other than the murky “IAFD Staff” designation. I am morbidthoughts, and the opinions I express in this blog are usually mine alone. They should not be considered endorsed by the staff especially if they end up being stupid. We have many different personalities in our group including one brilliant editor with multiple personalities *cough*Dr. Evil*cough* so we won’t always agree on everything.

Anyway, most of my contributions to IAFD has been as a reporter covering the multiple conventions and sets I visit with my colleagues, Bono One of adultdvdtalk.com and Malte of bluvista.tv. I take thousands of pretty pictures a year and  interview many people in the industry in between drinks. Because of this, I do the occasional data entry/correction on IAFD based on personal requests from them.

As for this year’s AVN convention, I had a great time even though the show shrank in half from last year by measure of exhibitors and physical space. The number of attendees remained constant though so the show was consistently busy whenever the fans were let in. I took thousands of pictures as always and managed to interview Riley Steele, Bibi Jones, and Zoe Voss. I can’t promise when they would be published though.

Highlights outside of the show included:

  • Meeting up with the always awesome Tricia Devereaux of Evil Angel for dinner and ended up screaming at the bartenders for free shots. Also met the gorgeous Jynx Maze at the same dinner not knowing that she was Jynx Maze or even who Jynx Maze was beyond Bono One excitedly repeating her name.
  • Receiving a brief lap dance from Katie St. Ives, who is that damn cuddly and adorable in person.
  • Taking a limo with the Spieglergirls just to go to the hotel across the street on the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Watching Alexis Texas bowl to the tune of Sir Mix A Lot’s Baby Got Back.
  • Watching two-time AVN Performer of the Year, Tori Black, put the house go-go dancer at a nightclub to shame with her pole skills and energy.

The only lowlight was my camera breaking at the nightclub. Hence the blurry phone shots.

So yeah, that’s why I am still tired.
