From The Freelance Job Boards

Project Description:

I'm creating an anthology of boring short stories (more information available on request). I need about three to five more stories, with a total of at least 6000 - 9000 words.

If you have some boring stories you've already written, they might be acceptable. You could also take good stories you've written so long as you can edit out any inadvertently interesting sections. For the most part, however, I would prefer to have boring stories written especially for this project.

Job Lead

I'm sure there is someone on my Friends' list who can do this. It's posted on Elance.

Project Description:

I need 1000+ word stories of "fan fiction" based on the characters, places, and/or elements of the Twilight saga books, consisting of Twilight, Eclipse, New Moon and Breaking Dawn, all by Stephanie Meyer. If you are familiar with the books, or at least the recent movie, and can have one to me over the next week, please send me your bid. Thanks!

Shifting Gears

Over on some of the gay sites I'm paid to moderate and contribute to there has been some controversy over a recently released porn movie called Shifting Gears.

The premise is this - it's some of the most popular gay porn stars in the world having sex with women as well as men. According to some of the marketing material this shoot was the first time a few of these guys have ever had sex with women, either on film or in real life.

Of course, the guys fuck each other as well - since the film is targeting a gay audience. The reaction is weird. Some of the guys are like "that's so hot and boundary crossing!" but other guys are like "that's fucking gross, I want to see guys fuck ass not pussy! ewww!"

The gays on Fleshbot like the movie, but that's a relatively small sample. On the gay sites the majority of the gays are a bit squiked by it.

What do you think? Straight guys often do gay porn for money - so why is it different or more shocking to have gay guys fuck girls for money?

Who do you think the target market is? Does the idea appeal to you?

The Drunk Ex Pat Writer wants to know, on the QT and very, very hush hush.

*The Fleshbot link is not work safe. It has pictures of both straight and gay sex, so if cock in male ass squicks you, the link may not be for you.

Come Again Some Other Day

Canceled my appointment with my shrink today because it's pouring rain and I can't really see a 25 minute walk in the cold and rain.

I haven't seen her in over a week (and I usually see her two or three times a week) but fuck this shit.

I'd rather be less mentally healthy and avoid getting a cold.
