Smokin'Sextanza Twitter ContestSeattle, WA – Tonight is Sextanza, the monthly fetish/kink party, at the Re-bar sponsored by Scott Paul Designs and LeatherPost with DJ Sweet Chris Bell and DJ FauxFaux spinning funky electro house, rock, funk, and mash-up. I know that Everett from LeatherPost, Scott Paul and photographer, Redwoodsnaps, have been working hard to make this the night for all you kinky fuckers here in Seattle and tonight promises to be a blast. With nearly all the boys in town for Blood Sweat & Fear this weekend, I know I’m planning on one hell of a good time. My boys Timmy, Chris Yosef, Derek da Silva, his boy JC, our pup Element and many of our friends will be bringing our own special brand of down-and-dirty from about ten to midnight.

If you are in Seattle, come down and enjoy the festivities, but if not you can still join the fun because I’m running a Twitter Contest in conjunction with Sextanza. Here’s how it goes… Read the rest of this entry »

Performing at the House of Blues

RiggingPerforming at the House of BluesChicago, IL –- Okay, I’m officially exhausted but it’s been totally worth it. We’ve had three very full days of work concluding with a performance at the House of Blues. It’s been a long but enjoyable weekend.

Derek and I had been looking forward to performing our dynamic suspension routine at the House of Blues for the IML XXX Victory Party since we first heard it would be a possibility several weeks ago. It’s a performance we’ve done several times at venues throughout the country but it almost didn’t happen at the House of Blues. The week before Derek suffered an injury to his left knee (don’t ask) and we didn’t know if he would be up for the performance until the day of the event. Then, we ran into some reservations from the powers that be regarding the scene. Luckily, Derek’s knee was fine and an in person meeting with the folks at the venue calmed all fears. The show was on.

And what a show it was. The place was packed; there must have been thousands. The music was great and the professional lighting and fog machine added to the theatrics. It was an exhilarating experience. The picture above is all I’ve got thus far, but I had a photographer friend snap some pictures I hope to receive and post to a gallery soon. I’ll keep you informed.

2008 Grabbys, Extreme Win for Fear

25 May 2008 11:00

Personal2008 GrabbysChicago, IL –- Derek and I arrived and made our entrance at the Grabbys with the crew from Titan. Sister Roma was there with NakedSword on the red carpet and we stopped for a quick interview with the paparazzo’s cameras flashing away. Once inside we had an opportunity to reconnect with some of our friends in the industry before settling into our seats with the guys from Titan and LeatherPost.

Early into the show, Brian Mills was inducted into the Grabby Wall of Fame. I was happy for him. Brian is one of my favorite people in the business and has become a trusted friend. His work is among the very best in the industry and the honor is well deserved. Congratulations.

Not long afterward the nominees for Best Fetish Video (Extreme) were read. Fear had been nominated in this category and it would be dishonest of me not to admit Derek and I had high hopes for Titan taking home this particular award. We had worked hard, along with many others, on Fear to bring content that resonated with the leather/Sm community and we were looking that effort (and the market) to be recognized at this level. As the nominees were read, Brian turned to me and said, “You know, if we win, you and Derek need to come up with me.” The picture (captured by fellow TitanMen Exclusive Dillon Buck) above shows the three of us accepting the award on behalf of Titan.

2008 Grabbys (Bonus)During the second half of the show, Derek and I were slated to present a couple of awards with our friend Ago Viara. While I didn’t know it prior to the show, it became clear that each set of presenters had a bit of shtick, so I rigged a couple of matching Shibari harnesses on the boys before we went on stage (photo Left). Derek and Ago looked so good I wished we were in a dungeon instead of at an awards show. Mr Pam had made a shout out to Derek and I earlier in the evening talking about how her hand hurt from punching Derek in the nuts the night before so I encouraged her to come up and repeat the experience for the audience. It was definitely a blast if not a little over the top.

Some quick shout outs: Steven Sarborough and Hot House, congratulations; Braxton Bond, it was great to see you again and I’d love to see you in LA sometime soon; Josh Vaughn, wish we could do a scene together… I’ll bet you cry real pretty; Ago Viara, you are so fucking hot if I don’t get to do a scene with you I’ll go crazy; Steve Cruz, keep up all the good work buddy; and Mr Pam, keep up the training ‘cause you pack a punch.
