VIDEO: Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Leather host hotel.

Here’s a very quick video to show you how crazy the lobby of the Mid-Atlantic Leather host hotel (the Hyatt Regency capitol Hill) is. I filmed this on Saturday evening, but it’s like this pretty much the whole weekend. Imagine going to MAL for the first time and seeing THIS. It’s mind- and load-blowing. I wish they allowed filming inside the marketplace or at the events because I’d have a field day shooting everything. You gotta come see it for yourself!

I have a ton of pictures from the Manhunt booth where Dirk and I were working; I’ll be posting those here on my blog within the next couple of days. Stay tuned!

The Shaving: A short erotic comedy by Titan director Dave Richards

Before Dave Richards started directing adult films, and even before he became a Titan production assistant, he dabbled in independent film-making. Here’s a rare treat for you… his previously unreleased short film The Shaving, which he filmed for a local bear group’s Halloween event. Rumor has it that he showed this film to the Titan brass during his interview; needless to say, he got the job.

Be sure to check out Dave’s porn directorial debut House Rules starring George Ce and Hans Berlin! He also came up with the cool concept behind the brand new Titan film In the Shadows, which blends mainstream porn with fetish scenes… and has a surprise cameo at the end that I think you’re gonna like!

The men of In the Shadows – including Dirk – and a free NSFW preview

Here’s the brand spanking new NSFW preview of In the Shadows, the latest from Titan’s star tag team of directors Jasun Mark and Paul Wilde!

My hubby Dirk’s in this one, in a pretty kick-ass fetish scene with Titan exclusive Nick Prescott… and there’s a little surprise waiting at the end. You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to see it, though, as their scene won’t be released until January 21. Mark your calendars!

The first scene from the movie, however — starring Titan exclusive Dario Beck and the ever-sexy Tony Orion — is already out, and Titan members can watch it in its entirety on the TitanMen website. Not a subscriber? Sign up now for instant access! The movie is already shipping on DVD, by the way, so if DVDs are more your thing, or you can’t wait to see Dirk and Nick’s scene (as well as Adam Champ with Titan exclusive Kevin Lee), you can order it now and see those other two scenes before anyone else!

That time I almost got electrocuted on set…

Water and electricity don’t mix.

Last month I was out in LA filming a scene with Donnie Dean for TitanMen’s upcoming film Pacific Coast. The scene starts with Donnie taking an ourdoor shower; I’m loading crates nearby, notice him, walk over, and join him in the shower… apparently too distracted by his boner to remember to take off my clothes.

So we’re making out in the shower and all of the sudden there’s this loud POP! from over to my right. Scares the crap out of me. It turns out that one of the stage lights got some water on it and exploded, sending little bits of glass in our direction! Fortunately nobody was hurt, and even if we had, we’ve got a full medical kit with us at all times. And what’s really amazing is that Donnie kept his boner the whole time.

Pacific Coast will be released in late February, exclusively from TitanMen.

Classical Caber: “Eclogue No. 4″

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of Dirk’s compositions, but since it’s the first Monday of the new year, Dirk and I want to start the year off right by sharing another one with you! Posted above is Eclogue No. 4, one of a series of nine eclogues that my hubby has written. Here’s Dirk’s explanation of its origins:

openquote
The Eclogues were my earliest experiments in orchestration, each using a particular variation on a chamber orchestra of not more than 24 or 25 players. Each was based loosely on a literary source, usually a poem. Eclogue No. 4, which I wrote in 1992, draws on a sonnet by Edna St. Vincent Millay:

What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why,
I have forgotten, and what arms have lain
Under my head till morning; but the rain
Is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh
Upon the glass and listen for reply,
And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain
For unremembered lads that not again
Will turn to me at midnight with a cry.
Thus in the winter stands the lonely tree,
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:
I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me
A little while, that in me sings no more.

All of the musical material is derived from a “folk song” tune I’d written to approximate a setting of the poem, but this tune isn’t played in its entirety until presented by the English horn, all alone, at nearly the end of the piece. Until that final solo, Eclogue No. 4 is a slow “thinning” of material for most of its duration, reflecting the increasing sense of loneliness of the text.

Only three of Dirk’s Eclogues have ever been recorded: Nos. 4, 6, and 7. (I’ve already posted Eclogue No. 6, a lush pastoral piece that reminds me of our recent trip to Ireland.) We’re exploring the possibility of starting a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to record the other six, and then releasing the entire collection on iTunes and CD… watch this space for details. In the meantime, check out Dirk’s other compositions on SoundCloud, and click here to share his SoundCloud page with your Facebook friends!

I think this picture sums up the themes in Eclogue No. 4 rather perfectly, don’t you?
