One of my biggest online pet peeves is the overuse of abbreviations. Some are OK, don't get me wrong. But some people just don't know when to stop. I have a hard enough time trying to figure out what the hell personalized license plates mean. Why should I have to try to figure out what you are trying to tell me. Just come out with it already.

Things like this really annoy me. If you can figure them out you are doing better than me. Some I have learned through asking others, but honestly, if you have to ask then there is a problem. Others are obvious, but just annoying as hell. Is it just me?
  • STFU
  • W R U @
  • FML
  • LMAO
  • What's UR 20?
  • NFW
  • OIC
And the list goes on. It's endless. More pop up every day. What if we spoke to each other that way? I would have to slap the shit out of someone. Texting was bad enough, but Twitter has just made things worse. I have trouble enough with English (and it's my first and only language). Why do I feel the need to learn an entirely new one? This is the reason I never text anyone, and the reason I despise receiving texts, so if you have my cell number, just call me. If it's important enough to say to me, then dial my damn number and tell me. Be warned that if you send me a text I will NOT respond. I hate it with a passion.

As you know, I am addicted to Twitter, so naturally I use some abbreviations from time to time to get my message withing the 140 character limit. But ONLY after I have exhausted every other possibility for using proper English. If I need to send two tweets to complete my thought, so be it.

Maybe I'm just too old fashioned. NOTE: I am not old, and anyone why says I am is in for one hell of an ass whooping. I'll show you just how old I am. The point is, if it's important enough for you to say to me, then just say it. Don't play games. I am a very tolerant person, but there are some places I have to draw the line, and this is one of them. If you want to use silly abbreviations with each other, fine. Don't do it with me. I'm not smart enough to figure it out and I will probably just ask you to explain it, so you might as well write it out anyway.

Thanks for understanding.

Recently porn model Tommy DeLuca contacted my buddy, Pierre Fitch about wanting to do a scene with him. After paying for DeLuca's plane tickets, booking a suite at a hotel, which was almost $400 for a night, DeLuca seems to have had a bit of a diva tantrum over having to take a taxi to Pierre's place. Isn't it enough that he was welcomed into Pierre's home, eat Pierre's food and be treated to an amazing time in Montreal? I have been a guest of Pierre's on many occasions. He is quite possibly one of the most entertaining and generous hosts I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. Pierre documented the incident on his blog. One thing Pierre left out was the fact that DeLuca had a major issue with not having a direct flight from New York to Montreal. OK, so he would have had to change planes in Philly. Was he worried about chipping a nail? There was only one direct flight from New York to Montreal and the ticket would have cost over $1300. When you calculate that in with the $400 hotel room, camera man, editing, plus paying Tommy his fee the shoot would have cost in the neighborhood of $3000. That is an extraordinary amount to pay for one scene. Even with the less expensive connecting flight, which was about $700 (non-refundable, by the way) the scene would have still been the most expensive Pierre had ever produced. How can DeLuca consider himself a professional or even worth of working in the porn industry. It's not like he is the most attractive model. If it were not for his horse size cock he would never get any work. I have reposted Pierre's blog entry detailing the events of what happened. There is no justification for DeLuca's behavior. None whatsoever. I have known Pierre for some time and consider him one of my best and dearest friends. I know that every word of his post is true. During the entire escapade Pierre was telling me the things that were occurring. Less than 12 hours before DeLuca's flight was set to leave he pulls this stunt. There may be some more underlying issues, but they certainly are not with Pierre. If DeLuca wants to continue in the industry and be taken seriously he really needs to re-evaluate his priorities. On a personal note, I hope that news of this incident spreads through the porn world like wild fire. I sincerely hope that other porn producers and directors will take a very close look at DeLuca before hiring him. If this much drama occurred over a taxi and flight arrangement, can you imagine what he is like to work with on a set. When Pierre told me about what happened I told him to consider himself lucky. This is not the kind of person he needs to be associated with. So here is Pierre's blog entry. Judge for yourself...

Today I get a phone call from Tommy deLuca and he asked me if everything was fine for tomorrow - I said yes. He asked if anyone was picking him up at the airport. I said you can take a cab, you have my home address, and I’ll pay for it. I thought this was all understood, and if not, at least the best and most convenient way.

He replies that he always gets picked up - and asks “don’t you have staff to do so?” I explained how easy is it to get to my place, and whether or not you know the area, the Cabbie does !! - and it won’t cost you anything and it’s quick.

Well, Miss Diva did not like the idea of coming by herself in a cab so I said I would take a cab to the airport and come back with him.

After this phone call he e-mails me telling me I was rude to suggest a cab. My God - it’s just ridiculous. I wasn’t rude, I just said that a cab made the most sense. How hard is it to take a cab !!!???

The most important point is that HE is the one who e-mailed ME for work. I mean, I thought I was a Diva, but damn - this was some real attitude. Thankfully Matt the Great was able to get my airfair ticket back since it was non-refundable.

Sorry to vent like this, but you get the good with the bad here on the blog lol. I’m kind of upset at this behavior, because in over 10 years I have always been nice to models and never had problems as petty and crazy as this one.

The bottom line is he cancelled - over taking a cab I’d pay for, he cancelled the shoot. I was really looking forward to working with him, but imagine on set how much crap there might have been. He was my most expensive shoot ever … airfare, cab, cameraman, hotel and his fee - and he pulls this immature stuff. Sorry again for the long rant, but it’s just so upsetting.

I just did an AMAZING interview with Ian Duncan, owner of Video Boys and Squirtz in Montreal. He is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I have ever spoken to. We have so many friends in common that I wonder how it is that we have never met or spoken before last night. It's a pretty long interview but so worth it. It really devolved from an interview into a great conversation. Before either of us knew it we had been on the phone for almost two hours.

Ian had a very troubling childhood but overcame his adversity and started his Video Boys when he was just 18, when the Internet was still new to most of the world. Now at 33 Ian is still going strong. He's very open about his life and has admitted that talking about his past has helped his deal with it and come through it a better person. I had a tremendous amount of respect for Ian based on what I had heard from Pierre Fitch, Jeremy Feist and Jeremy Roddick, but after speaking to him I now have an even deeper respect for him.

The interview should be up by Friday on In the meantime please follow Ian on Twitter at

So I went to see GI Joe today. The movie was missing something. Now what was it..... hmmmmm.... Oh yeah, a PLOT! There were some good action scenes, but the story (what little story there was) was kind of hard to follow. Now, I am by no means a movie critic. I just know what I like, and the only thing I liked about this movie was Channing Tatum. Looking at him was the only really redeeming quality about this movie. Honestly, do Hollywood producers and directors think that a movie can stand on action alone? I've seen better story lines in car commercials. At best this would make a semi-decent rental. The people sitting next to me actually left about 15 minutes before the movie ended. If you have to leave a movie during the climax, it really wasn't much of a climax, now was it? You can check it out for yourself, but honestly, I would recommend spending $10 somewhere else.
