    Looks good Dom. The poster is evocative of Kubrick to me.

    Thanks, and yeah, I stole his font. I want to start looking for an artist who does good illustrated posters for the real poster. Anyone have any recommendations? The British DVD labels often seem to ahve fun art on their covers. I guess it wouldn't be too hard to find who they are. I imagine it can't be too expensive because I can't see there being any money in DVD these days and new art would be a luxury expense for them.

    Currently in a dialogue with Ron Jeremy's agent about him coming in for a dialogue role. Nothing more to add, just thought talking to The Hedgehogs agent was cool.

    No actually, something more to add. I see he shares an agent with Lloyd Kaufman. I love Lloyd. Has Lloyd ever done a walk on in a porno... He'd be a commited member of SAG I suppose so that's probably not doable....

    He hasn't appeared in any that I know of but he did direct some in his earlier days and he has used Ron in quite a few Troma movies over the years.

    I forgot Lloyd directed porn back in the day... Just now I got another email from Rons agent. This one in response to the question of what Ron's rate is. The very succinct response: "I don't know. Make him an offer." FFS.

    You can make an offer to Kaufman but I'm 99.999% sure he would never appear in an adult film. Despite what he told Joe Rubin, he denies that he ever did porn to other people. Also I serious doubt Kaufman is SAG, I think most of his roles are done for free, just to get publicity. And, I don't believe SAG rules apply to porn productions.

    Im sure youre right that Kaufman wouldn't. It wouldn't be the first bit of misinformation in that book, but in Kaufmans Make Your own Damn Movie book he says that "even I'm a member of sag" as a way of disparaging them. I'm also not sure whether SAG would prevent a member from appearing in a porno. I would actually assume they would. They seem to be testing how ridiculously prohibitive they can get.

    Additional thought: Assuming Lloyd is telling the truth when he says he's a SAG member then he's breaking all the time by being in his own films which are definitely not SAG productions. I was just running the idea of casting Ron in the film past my producer. Got this response: "He also suffers from narcolepsy so keep his time on set short and sweet. I’m not exaggerating he can collapse and sleep any time!" Probably common knowledge but new to me.

    There's a movie out there, I believe it's called Ron Jeremy Does Las Vegas or something to that effect, where he goes back to the room with a young couple. They start getting it on and you assume he's going to join in - but instead he falls asleep in a chair and they keep going at it.

    When I met him a few years ago I had him sign the DVD.

    Agents:



    That's Mark Spiegler, famed in story and song as the Ari Gold of the porn world. He only represents women and the girls on his books are pretty much all major names. Asa Akira, Angela White etc etc. They're Spiegler's girls and proudly advertise themselves as such. He keeps 30 on his books at any one time, no more, no less. I'm told he lives in a big Melrose Place style block, which he owns, and he rents the other flats in the block to his girls and they all live together as one big, happy porno family. I have no point to this back story but I'm telling it anyway because in the next life I want to come back as Mark Spiegler. It's why I 've recently gone Buddhist.

    "When does this production take place and where?"

    I'm not sure what I expected from porno agents but what I've got is not it. The above is the entire contents of an email I just recieved from Rons agent. It seems reasonable, right? Brief but reasonable. Except I've already sent him the date and location three times. It is, in fact, in the fucking email that he is replying to. In bold even. And this is in response to my sending him a screenshot of the down payment on Rons appearance in the film for which Ron had already agreed on the date and location. And this is typical.

    Up front people told me, "don't worry these are all real people. This is, at it's heart, a business like any other". It may be a business, sure, but ultimately its a business like Jimmy the crackddealer, who lives down the road and hangs his sneakers over the telephone wire as his calling card, is a business. The lack of basic professionalism is kind of breathtaking.

    What I'm trying to say is, if you have any kind of business or people skills head to LA and fucking take the industry over. I'm firmly convinced that anyone with any sort of vision could turn the thing on it's head just by approaching it with a decent work ethic and basic competence. If I wasn't stuck in Oz I'd do it myself.
