Ripped from today's headlines!
« on: 28 Feb 2008, 19:09 »

I know there's been a few threads on ridiculous news stories before, but since I'm firmly against necro posting, I figured there was little harm starting up a new one.


Anyway, check this one out:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080229/ap_on_re_us/porn_actors_burglaries

Seriously, there's probably slashfic on 4chan more plausible than that story.

Whew, as long as it isn't my favorite set of twins, I don't care...

OK the first paragraph was the worst. From what I understand both brothers were hardcore gay porn actors.

Now were they in the videos together?? Can any hardcore gay porn fans clarify this because I'm a little weirded out.

This is really only startling if you're of the opinion that people can do one thing and one thing only in their lives.

Admittedly, porn and burglary isn't the most traditional of career diversification paths, but still . . .

I just appreciate all the little details and their cumulative effects-- none of the details are that mindblowing on their own. But twin gay porn actors going on an 18 month crime spree and evading the law with athletic feats only to be caught while raiding one beauty shop too many? Smashing!

The peculiar thing about this story is this dude - 

Quote
The brothers have appeared in online gay porn videos under the names Teyon and Keyon, said Erik Schut of Philadelphia-based video retailer TLA Entertainment Group, which sells gay porn DVDs online.

He said they could have had a good career if they hadn't gotten in trouble.

"They are incredibly good-looking, and being identical twins, it's a novelty," Schut said.

The insinuation is that they have wrecked their career in hardcore homosexual pornography by going to jail. I assume this means there is a depth of depravity that will see you ostracised from the gay porn industry? Before allowing you to be filmed engaging in sodomy do they ask if you have a prison record or something? I don't see it.

Maybe he's saying that because they are incredibly good looking they are going to get uglied up in prison, thus ruining their otherwise lucrative careers in the adult entertainment industries (though I'm sure they can still do scar-fetish stuff).

Just as a side-note, I find twin-porn to be a little creepy. The incest angle makes it kind of fucked up.

Well now that raises an interesting conundrum: to you find the idea of homosexual twin porn more or less creepy than heterosexual twin porn? My gut's saying hetero would be more creepy, but that might just be me.

i think they're referring more to the fact that sexually transmitted diseases and drug abuse are really big problems in jail. also, since it's public knowledge that they're gay, it makes them that much more a target in prison.

Equally creepy actually. Either way it's still people who are extremely related engaging in sexual activities. I mean they may not be having sex with each other, they could just be doing it near each other which is significantly less creepy but still pretty creepy.

Well that all depends what you mean by "twin porn," both homosexual and heterosexual. I mean, are you talking about the twins actually having sex with each other, or a three-way where the twin sisters are both having sex with the same man?

...

Actually, I think I will end my train of thought here.

Yeah, by the second post, this thread was creepy enough. BK saved it, but then it's back to being creepy.

That Captain America article was funny.

Quote
The woman pointed out Adamcik and the burrito was found in his boot. He was taken to the police station. There, while in a holding cell, police said, he asked to use the bathroom and tried to flush a joint, also hidden in his blue tights, down the toilet.

They are tights. I'm surprised he could hide anything in there at all.

Yeah, I was hoping for people posting articles like BK's rather than obsessing about gay twin porn, since I think gay twin porn (and porn in general, actually) is a boring subject unless attached to a chain of increasingly unlikely events. I don't mind too much though; the Sad Captain America Getting Booked picture alone is worth the price of admission.

Also, this news item is less creepy/weird and more neat/weird:

It's just as well 1% of the adult population of America isn't in jail.

He was handcuffed in the back of a moving police cruiser after a 2006 drug arrest in Clementon, N.J., when he broke out the glass with his head and jumped into a lake while still handcuffed, police Chief Dave Kunkel said.

"He swam across like Flipper, taunting the officers, saying, 'You'll never catch me," Kunkel told the Daily News.

HARDCORE.

Private Eye has a round-up of the very best of these types of news stories. People smuggling hand grenades into prison in their vaginas and marrying their computers and so on. I haven't bought this fortnights copy yet actually, might pick one up tomorrow...

Maybe, but it seems to me that the biggest career problem a porn actor would face being in jail is the simple fact of incarceration's forced removal from society.  It's difficult (probably not impossible, but certainly difficult) to star in porn films from behind bars.  And the one twin who has a sizeable criminal record is facing a couple of years, at least.  By the time he'd get out, if he gets out, he'd have lost his youth, which IS a vitally important credential for adult film actors.

That makes more sense than my first thought, of directors saying "I may film men sodomising each other for a living, but you've crossed the line."

Same thing happened in Secretary except it was a desk instead of a toilet.  And it was a few days instead of two years.

So yeah, not really the same thing.  Great movie though!

I wonder, did other people know about it? Did he have people ask
"Is your girlfriend still sitting on the toilet?"
"Yes..."
"Don't  you think you should, you know, do something about it?"
"Well, I dunno, after the first six weeks it doesn't seem weird anymore."
Then they just decide it's none of their business...

If I was going to sit somewhere for that much time I would probably do it on the toilet as well. At least it is somewhat practical.

Also, I was not prepared when I first saw The Secretary. Though it was a good movie.
