2010 Grabby Nominations

17 March 2010 16:10

Caged2010 Grabby NominationsSeattle, WA – A couple days ago, the 19th annual Grabby Award Nominations were announced. Apparently the Grabbys have honored me with three individual nominations and two scene nods. The scene nominations include Best Rimming with Adam Knox in Folsom Maneuvers and Best Duo with Will Parker in Folsom Flesh. The individual nominations include Hottest Cock (LOL), Best Supporting Actor for my role in Battle Creek Breakdown directed by Joe Gage and Performer of the Year.

Folsom Flesh also earned nominations for Best Leather Movie, Best Box Cover and Best Fetish Movie. In the Best Extreme Fetish category, both Rough. Shock Treatment and Triage earned nominations. While I’m always pleased to see projects I was involved in receiving recognition, I am particularly happy to see Shock Treatment‘s nomination for Best Extreme Fetish because it represents the first time a video I directed (co-credited with Paul Wilde) has received a Grabby nod.

Hard Choice Performer of the Year

15 February 2010 14:26

ReflectiveHard Choice Performer of the YearChicago, IL – The 16th Annual Hard Choice Awards were announced on XX-Factor yesterday. With sixteen years, the Hard Choice Awards are the second-oldest continuously running honors for all-male erotica. All gay adult films released in 2009 and reviewed in XX-Factor were eligible for consideration. Unlike the GayVNs, Grabbys and XBIZ Awards, I am told the Hard Choice Awards are determined by a single individual who has watched each film submitted for review. The winners were chosen by Onan the Vulgarian in conjunction with reviewer Harley Shadow. While these awards may not be representative of broad industry sentiment, I have always found them to be insightful and, at times, humorous. As I read the announcement yesterday, however, I was shocked to discover that I had been named this year’s Hard Choice Performer of the Year, with the following commentary… Read the rest of this entry »

Released: Battle Creek Breakdown

CagedReleased: Battle Creek BreakdownSeattle, WA – On Tuesday Titan Media released Battle Creek Breakdown. Again, although I generally consider myself a fetish performer, each year I try to complete one or two non-fetish features in an effort to broaden my experience within the industry and cross market appeal. Last year those two features, Chainsaw and Home Invasion, were both directed by Joe Gage. I positively love getting the chance to work with the legendary director Joe Gage. His early movies, especially the Working Man Trilogy, totally helped define my queer identity, and I feel truly honored to now have been a part of three of his more recent projects.

Now, for a closer look at Battle Creek Breakdown, an excerpt from the Scene Breakdown for Battle Creek Breakdown and more… Read the rest of this entry »

Released: Eye Contact

CagedReleased: Eye ContactSeattle, WA – Last Tuesday Titan Media released Eye Contact. Although I am primarily a fetish performer, each year I try to get cast in one or two non-fetish features in an effort to broaden my experience within the industry and strengthen my cross market appeal. Last year those two features were both directed by Joe Gage. Chainsaw paired me with Braxton Bond in one of the most natural feeling sex scenes I’ve ever shot, and my performance in Home Invasion earned me Best Actor nominations with both the GayNVs and the Grabbys. Eye Contact, directed by Brian Mills, is the first of two non-fetish features I’m in that will be released this year. The second, to be released later this year, is Battle Creek Breakdown, my third feature with the legendary director, Joe Gage.

Now, for my take on Eye Contact, a look at some clips courtesy of TitanMen.com, an excerpt from the Scene Breakdown for Eye Contact and more… Read the rest of this entry »

A Tweet-by-Tweet Review

11 June 2009 1:18

Caged'A Tweet-by-Tweet ReviewSeattle, WA – Last Sunday, I volunteered to help out with the Toasted Buns event hosted by Generic Leather Productions of Washington to benefit our titleholders’ travel fund and CLAW Nation charities. One of my boys Our current Northwest Leather Sir, Rich Bryan hosted the event. And the Dragons were there in force. We offered spanking demos and swats for a dollar while staffing the barbeque on the patio at the Cuff, our home bar here in Seattle. I’m generally the guy on the mic for these types of GLPW events, although our family tends to create spectacle and work the room which helps minimize the amount of time needed on the microphone.

Twitter helped, too. I used the social-networking/micro-blogging tool to help generate some support and excitement for the event. We held a little contest, awarding a copy of Titan Media’s latest release, Folsom Flesh to the person with the most Twitter followers that came up to me during the event. The winner was @JCTricks (pictured right) with 213 followers. To my surprise and entertainment the next day, I read JC was about to screen my scene with Will ‘the Pig’ Parker from the video.

Here’s an extended clip of the scene, courtesy of TitanMen.com and a highlight of the tweet-by-tweet review that followed… Read the rest of this entry »

Released: Folsom Flesh

CagedReleased: Folsom FleshChicago, IL – Today at the IML Leather Market, Titan Media released Folsom Flesh in association with Priape. Folsom Flesh is the sixth in the series of co-branded Folsom films and exclusive leather/fetish films of the Folsom Street Fair. Yes, that’s me on the cover with my scene partner, Will Parker. As I’ve written before, I’ve seen our scene, which opens the film and it is one of the most stunning depictions of hardcore fetish/Sm ever captured on screen. I was at ShibariCon with my boy Derek da Silva and our pup Element and haven’t had a chance to see the reactions from the crowd watching the extended trailer at the Titan/Priape booth yet. But judging by the reports I’ve received from director Brian Mills, the facial expressions and comments would indicate agreement.

Now, for a complete description of the action from the Scene Breakdown for Folsom Flesh and more… Read the rest of this entry »
