A Day In Hollywood/A Night In The Ukraine

Got up to work this morning and got the first payment for perhaps the most fun job I'll ever have. But it's a secret job, so don't ask.

Also had a client who had owed me money for more than two weeks finally pay me - so rock on.

Then for the first day in like four days it wasn't raining so I took Rome Girl out in the afternoon to the Place de la Comedie for citron presse and people watching.

We had fun.

Afterward I came back home for more work and then went over to the Vert Anglais where I ran into the Elder Half of Woody Allen Film Reference, The Iceman, Hippy IT Boy, Blonde Lesbian and Blonde Lesbian's Main Squeeze.

One of them (who insisted on remaining anonymous) said this:

"When I saw that picture of Lenny Kravitz in your blog yesterday, my first thought was that I'd fart on a cake for him."

It was that kind of night.

Zombie Porn

The interesting thing is that all the scenes of the Slumber Party Slaughterhouse DVD Game are written and directed by the female porn stars who are in them. Plus, they insist that this is "not porn."

Here's how one of the women explains the movie and her feelings about it:

"Basically-the "plot"of the whole movie is something along the lines of there being a frat party- where they all invite hookers. Some dude in the frat (i think) didn’t get invited to the hooker extravaganza and he was pissed- so he put a curse on the party and therefore each person goes into the room with the hooker and dies. Each director that was invited to direct a scene was allowed to put their own spin on it.

So me- well, I kinda made my character a possessed sort of dead Hannah Montannah kind of hooker who randomly gets possessed and starts singing "rock and roll in my butthole" - with a very large deadly strap-on to perform the rocking and rolling with. Eventually- she (meaning ME) kills the frat by attemtping to rock and roll in his butthole and him squirming away and the strap on goes through his stomach. A little more happens after that but I don’t know if I should tell you what happens- I would really hate to spoil the ending!

anyways it comes out this October- and it won’t be at a porn store near you- because- ITS NOT A PORN.

Don’t get me wrong- I love porn. I am not going Jenna Jameson on your asses where I will be like "oh I have found bigger and better things in life than porn- like being a zombie and stripping on camera! That’s a lot classier than fucking on camera!" So yeah. Please don’t think I am turning into one of those porno trying to go mainstream people…. but I am proud of myself for writing a script that involved two people dying, and not fucking. This whole experience made me feel very well rounded and shit."


Fear Factor

Rome Girl has a conundrum.

One of her favorite actors is Kiefer Sutherland who she will see in anything.

But, one of her biggest phobias is seeing mirrors in horror movies. It freaks her the fuck out.

Tomorrow a new Kiefer Sutherland horror movie comes out called Mirrors.

She has no idea what she's going to do.

On a side note it turns out that Kiefer has a phobia of mirrors in real life - to the point where he doesn't have any in his home, including in his bathroom.

Apparently he made the film just to prove to himself that he could.

How badass is that?


CANBERRA (Reuters) - An Australian woman has taken revenge on her cheating husband by putting a photograph of his lover's underpants up for sale on the auction site eBay.

In the listing the woman says she is selling a picture of a pair of lacy black knickers and an empty condom wrapper "size small" found in her bed after her husband had an affair with another woman.

The seller -- identified on eBay only as annastella007 -- provides a rather unflattering description of the knickers.

"They are so huge I thought they may make someone a nice shawl or, even better, something for Halloween perhaps."

The woman said this was not her last sale on eBay.

She says her husband's Harley motorcycle is "the next item that will probably be sold on eBay at a start price of 99c and, of course, with no reserve!"
