Sean from www.pornvalleyvixens.com and www.pornlegends.com recaps the week:
>Hurricane Skeeter Now Downgraded to a Tropical Depression – In a very revealing conversation with Gene, www.adultfyi.com/read.php?ID=28257 Skeeter revealed for the first time publicly that he is broke and suffers from mental illness.
“We all know, at least many people have agreed that I am truly mentally ill and in need of intervention,” says Skeeter. “I go in and out of stages of dementia and there’s no way I can even stand trial and represent myself. These are people who have known me for many years and have given quotes,” said Skeeter.
“You know I told the judge that I suffer from mental illness,” states Skeeter referring to his lawsuit with Kevin Rubio. “I have been hospitalized, which is true, for panic attacks. So I think the public needs to know that I’m in an extremely bad frame of mind and the dementia I’m suffering and the mental illness I’ve had for years has really taken a huge toll right now,” said Skeeter.
In the conversation, Skeeter explains his financial troubles – “I’m in the gutter- I’m panhandling for my next meal,” he continues. “The money is gone, the money is gone.”
Those revelations are wrapped around Skeeter’s explanation of how the first day of court went in Kevin Ducati’s lawsuit against him. Skeeter goes on to say that he no longer has an attorney and he is representing himself in court [another sign Skeeter is nuts].
Is Skeeter putting the word out now about his mental and financial troubles to supersede the fact that he may loose the lawsuit? Who knows, but not unlike other conversations Gene has had with Skeeter, the reader needs a road map to try to keep up with all of his twists and turns. I contend Skeeter is crazy like a fox and hurricane warnings will be posted again soon.
> The Jessica Valentino Herpes Announcement Is False? – Sandra from A-List Talent writes: In regards to Jessica Valentino’s herpes email, she has informed us that her email was hacked as well as her Myspace account. The reports of her contracting herpes is untrue. She is healthy and available for bookings through A List Talent.
The following was the email from someone purporting, earlier, to be Jessica Valentino:
Hello everyone I do apologize if this email offend anyone or is in any way offensive but I Jessica Valentino will ne taking a long break from porn because I have contract a sever genital herpes outbreak and I dont know who I got it from but all I can say is if I have worked with you in the past month I do apologize if I have given it to you…this is very depressing for me to deal with but I must let everyone know and make them aware of my condition”
The person who wrote that email may be an excellent hacker, but it appears they are also graduates of the Long & Valentine School of Composition.
> Greg Sakas Predicts Victory as Trial Begins Friday – Gene spoke with Greg Sakas, the North Carolina owner of several adult bookstores about his continuing fight with the town of New Bern. This never ending drama finally appears to be coming to a head as Sakas’ trial began Friday. Sakas is very confident that he will prevail. “We’re ready to go and we’re feeling very good and very comfortable,” said Sakas.
Good for him. I understand the Japanese felt pretty good after Pearl Harbor, as well.
> Craig Valentine’s Wrestling Report – On Thursday Gene caught up with Craig “Spell Check” Valentine.
Craig discussed the goings on in the Florida porn scene and discussed his wrestling trials and tribulations. On July 20 he and his wrestling/porn star buddies are putting on several wrestling matches at The Dome in Bakersfield.
Porn and wrestling. Man, Craig certainly has the life. Now all he needs is something to do with NASCAR and he’d have the perfect Redneck Trifecta.
> Not a Fan of August or the PR Machine? – Ryan Razer posted on LukeFord.com … “The bullshit that people spew out of their mouth never ceases to amaze me. What cell phone company doesn’t claim to be #1? What car hasn’t claimed to win the award to imply they are the best? And the adult industry is no better. … Well today is no different my friends. Today I was reading LA Direct News and how some whore is one of the top female stars. Specifically they said August is one of the top female stars in the adult industry today. … I’m not saying this August bitch isn’t hot or anything like that or that she doesn’t have some potential but when the fuck did she become one of the top female stars in the industry today? She is so not famous that she doesn’t even have one feature of her own even by trash movie companies, let alone more than some bit parts in big budget movies from studios like Wicked Pictures, Digital Playground or Vivid. … I’m really not trying to trash this girl. The point I want to make and the person I want to trash is the jack ass that decided to proclaim her one of the top starlets in the industry. Why in the fuck do people in marketing feel the overwhelming need to just fling so much bullshit?”
Ryan, buddy, I feel your pain. Believe me, writing this weekly review for the #1 Adult News and Information website on the Internet is very trying. Do you know how hard it is to have the #1 adult industry writer AND the #1 adult industry editor looking over your shoulder all the time? It keeps me awake at night, my friend. However, that is what one deals with in being the best news reviewer in the adult industry.
> Adultfyi Salutes Ted Kennedy – After reports this week saying Sen. Ted Kennedy was diagnosed with brain cancer, Gene wrote a hilarious essay saluting Sen. Kennedy’s long relationship with the bottle.
After reading the piece, I figure not even the best binge drinking starlet in the adult industry could even come close to matching Sen. Kennedy’s consumption of the grape & grains. Gene, however, neglected to include the recipe for Ted’s favorite drink called the Chapaquitic – Mix six shots and a splash, then you wake up the next day feeling great and not being able to remember a thing.
> WWE’s Ashley Massaro Can Run, But She Can’t Hide – Philly Burbs journalist Eric Gargiulo has spoken to a few people close to the Ashley Massaro escort scandal story, and they are saying that the Ashley Massaro named by Rolling Stone is indeed the WWE Diva. Gargiulo’s sources are saying that the timing fits right and considering that the girl in question was advertised from New York City, it’s a pretty big giveaway. The WWE Diva is from Long Island, New York, which is nearby New York City. The page also listed her nightly booking fee at $25,000.
I understand that 25K also included dinner and a two out of three falls match. The piledriver at the end was extra.
> Sign of the Times – Adam & Eve announced that a number of corporate changes are scheduled to take place in the near future.
[Now I will decode their press release.] –
To take advantage of existing economies in North Carolina [cheap labor] and to improve communication [save money on phone bills], creativity and collaboration [anyone can write a porn script], Adam & Eve Pictures is reorganizing its operations in Chatsworth, California [rent is killing us]. “Our goal was to dramatically increase sales through the Chatsworth office. We did indeed increase sales in 2007 during an otherwise declining market, but the trends at this time [Chatsworth office wasn’t paying for itself] in the general economy and the entertainment industry as a whole [sales really suck] are impacting us as well,” said Bob Christian, Adam & Eve Pictures General Manager.
> Nina Hartley in Masturbation Marathon – In a press release from GameLink.com, they announced an exclusive live performance by one of the greatest porn legends of all time: Nina Hartley. On Wednesday, May 21st 2008, Nina was to have masturbated for three hours live in an online performance.
Over Nina’s illustrious career, she has swallowed more seaman than the Bermuda Triangle, choked more chicken than Colonel Sanders, and has fucked more people than all the major oil companies combined.
> Starbucks X-Rated Logo? – Starbucks Corp. has a new more revealing logo of its trademark mermaid and it has stirred up a bit of controversy. The logo features mermaid topless and bare-chested with her tail fin split in half. The Resistance says the new image “has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute,” Mark Dice, founder of the group, said in a news release. “Need I say more? It’s extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks.”
On behalf of Slutbucks.com, I want to thank Mr. Dice for a ton of free publicity he has given their website. By the way, does this coffee taste fishy to you?
> Porn Tax Is DOA – Even in the face of an estimated $20 billion budget deficit, a bill that would raise revenues by imposing a 25% tax on earnings of the pornography industry is meeting with stiff resistance in the California legislature, with opponents claiming it would drive a multi-billion-dollar industry out of the state. Republicans in the legislature have indicated they would vote against the bill because it is a tax increase and they oppose any tax increase of any stripe. Under state law, tax increases require a 2/3 majority of both houses of the legislature. Following the May 12 hearing, Calderon’s bill was referred to the “suspense file” of the Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation. Although theoretically the bill could be taken out of the suspense file and considered again, the move most likely means the measure is dead for this session of the legislature.
You read it here first: Soon you’ll see people in this industry claiming credit for the bill’s defeat. Don’t fall for it. Remember, this was an anti-tax victory, not a pro-adult industry victory. Save your money when the next Free Speech Coalition fund raising push begins because they had nothing to do with this bill’s defeat. Dave Cummings wants us all to register to vote. Maybe you should consider registering as a … Republican?
> New U.K. Extreme Obscenity Ban Passed – A new law criminalizing possession of extremely graphic images has been passed in U.K. as part of the latest Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill, and conviction by the statute will be punishable by up to three years in jail, according to the U.K. Ministry of Justice.
The Ministry stated, “Material covered will include necrophilia, bestiality, and violence that is life threatening or likely to result in serious injury.” Under the new law, criminal liability now extends from the producer, who was responsible under the 1959 Obscene Publications Act (OPA), to the consumer.
I guess the new Tito Ortiz/Jenna Jameson celebrity sex tape is now illegal in the U.K.
> Hurricane Skeeter Warning Posted – After destroying Max Hardcore a few weeks ago, Hurricane Skeeter took aim on AVN and JM Productions with Gene’s conversation with him being posted last Sunday. Skeeter’s wondering if AVN is now in the business of giving compilations 4 A reviews. Skeeter, in making his case, refers to the review of “Bound”, a release from JM Productions.
The movie also includes Mickey G who’s been in jail and out of the industry for the last couple of years and Crystal Ray, who hasn’t appeared in a scene for years. Skeeter should know because he was the last person to have shot her. Skeeter laughs because some of these scenes are three and four years old. “Tony Malice did this incredibly handsome press release on the originality and how great this movie Bound is,” Skeeter said. “What he did not tell anybody is it’s a comp. Yes. JM Productions sold a comp as new. They did not tell the distributors that the movie Bound has scenes in it as in plural that appear in other JM Productions/Powersville Inc. movies. “But Jim don’t care,” Skeeter goes on to say. “Fuck ‘em all. Fuck all those distributors. Fuck the Internet. Fuck everybody.” Hurricane Skeeter goes on to expose a lot of other dirty little secrets including payola, sex in exchange for awards and other shady deals involving AVN.
Watch out because this hurricane warning extents all up and down Porn Valley
