2020.03.15 19:42 Dianthaa Another bingo round-up with 2 and 3/4 cards, a few mini-reviews and stats

Another bingo round-up with 2 and 3/4 cards, a few mini-reviews and stats
I started working on this post at the end of November when I was two or three books away from finishing my two cards. Procrastinated it so much that I realized it would be a lot more helpful by this point to wait till the new squares are up and include that info with the mini-reviews. So this post only has mini-reviews for underrated books in my hard mode card, the rest will come in a bigger mini-review post with new squares. Like this one mini-reviews of bingo books from last year that have under 2500ish ratings on Goodreads and how they fit this year’s squares.

https://preview.redd.it/jokr2ps6uvm41.jpg?width=2925&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d24adeee006f57dbb01633c3f4eda44116663c01
higher-res visual cards

A few stats

I had a few personal goals starting out, I'll be listing Total (hard card/normal card/ leftover card) for all categories that I tracked. All in all, I read 69 cards that fit bingo, one hard mode card, one and 3/4 normal mode cards. I've got 49/69 squares in hard mode. I went so hard for hero mode that not only did I review all of them (a few are still in my draft folder), but I ended starting a review blog. So thanks for the new hobby Reddit, it's lots of fun!
  • Self-published: goal 25%, achieved 30% 21 books (5/9/7)
  • Books by women: goal 50%, achieved 58% 40 books (13/14/13)
  • Romanian books: goal 5%, achieved 7% 5 books (3/2/0)
  • Older than 20 years: goal 10%, achieved 6% 4 books (3/1/0)
  • Audiobooks: 54% 37 books (13/11/13)
  • Ebooks: 19% 13 books (7/4/2)
  • Paperback: 19% 13 books (5/7/1)
  • Hard mode books: 71% 49 books (25/15/9)
Review links are to my review on reddit. The links for the book titles below lead to Goodreads. GR means the number of goodreads ratings, I added these into my spreadsheet early on, so they're not up to date. I've added a line about each book and a little mini-review for books with under 2500 GR, these also have their titles in bold.

First Row Across:

  • Slice of Life / Small Scale Fantasy – The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison, (GR 22,425) review– amazing book with the most likeable, kind protagonist learning how to rule an empire, not action focused at all
  • A SFF Novel Featuring a Character With a DisabilityThe Warrior’s Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold (GR 22,180)review If you haven’t already, drop everything and read this book. Fun, well written, clever space adventure with a smart manic protagonist
  • SFF Novella – Când penele roșii vor plânge by Lucian Dragoş Bogdan, (GR 13) review, I found this one interesting and it left me wanting to explore more of the world. The story deals with the morality and struggles of trying to resurrect an extinct species, in hopes it will once again protect the galaxy against a powerful foe. I liked the different species, such as a birdlike person who does a lot of meditation through dancing.
  • Self-Published SFF Novel Mid-Lich Crisis by Steve Thomas (GR 50, but I read it when it had 11) review A fun comedy about an undead necromancer lord trying to prove to the world that he'd not the e-word. I really loved the main character, the narrator's snark and all the different little pokes at genre tropes.
  • SFF Novel Featuring TwinsThe Mage-Born Anthology by Kayleigh Nicol,( GR19) review short stories with each of the siblings in the Mage-Born series. I really enjoyed it, and I read it with no prior knowledge of the series. I liked how different all the stories felt, despite tackling the same theme in the same universe. I loved the characters, especially bookish Reina.

Second Row Across:

  • Novel Featuring VampiresStrange Practice by Vivian Shaw (GR 7,716), review, read for book club, interesting on urban fantasy, the main character is a doctor for supernatural people
  • Format: Audiobook – the behemoth that was Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Cimmerian Barbarian: The Complete Weird Tales Omnibus (GR 116), review, Classic sword and sorcery, a lot of fun adventures, wouldn't recommend reading the entire collection in one go. It got repetitive, a lot of the stories are written to a formula, and the dated aspects got grating.
  • SFF Novel by a Local to You AuthorCiudatul Caz al Umbrelor by Daniel Timariu (GR 11), review, Dresden Files set in my city, loved reading something in my city. I liked how there's an entire supernatural underworld. The cool thing is that their character names are based on who was in charge of the city when the sup. species arrived here, so there are old Dacian names, Hungarian names, Romanian names, etc.
  • SFF Novel Featuring an Ocean Setting The Bone Ships by RJ Barker (GR 803), review. The Bone Ships is the only book I read last year that I've already reread (well, relistened, the narration is excellent). It follows the former captain of a ship of the dead, crewed by condemned criminals, on a nautical adventure. The worldbuilding is detailed and dark, but the overall tone of the book is positive. It's got a lot of slice-of-sailor-life moments, but also very cool ship-to-ship battles.
  • CyberpunkAlif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson (GR 15,375) , review . Read for book club. Hacker makes stalking magic program get chased down by the government, ends up in Djinn town for a while

https://preview.redd.it/68wx8r5mcvm41.jpg?width=695&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c13ad5ab1a5ce78e1aeb06220b76063fbeae5817

Third Row Across:

  • 2nd ChanceRed Sister by Mark Lawrence (GR 32,173),review, I see the appeal, but was a strongly meh book for me, didn't hate it, just didn't like it either. The concept of badass nuns on a dying world is great, I'll give it that
  • Afrofuturism Escaping Exodus by Nicky Drayden (GR 286), review A sci-fi story taking place on a living spaceship. A huge, goey, often disgusting, beast flying through space with humans modifying it so they can live inside. A lot of the focus is on the ship itself, all the challenges it poses, and on the divided matriachal society that inhabits it.
  • SFF Novel Published in 2019 The Imaginary Corpse by Tyler Hayes (GR 204), review. A noir detective mystery taking place in an imaginary land. A children's story for grown-ups, dealing with all the feelings, from the warm fuzzies to deep trauma. Despite going to some dark places along the way it is extremely uplifting.
  • Middle Grade SFF NovelCe vad Dragonii by Diana Geacar (GR 4), review, A sort of soft LitRPG (no stats) merging gamelit and Alice in Wonderland. I liked the characters but the tone ended up too preachy for my taste, and some parts a bit awkward.
  • A Personal Recommendation from FantasySpirits Rising by Krista D Ball (GR 266) -review, novella series, Tiny-town urban fantasy set in Newfoundland. The theme with Krista's books seems to be great characters, this is no exception I loved Rachel, the main character who can talk to ghosts. I also liked the cosy feel but also dealing with dark shit.

Fourth Row Across:

  • Any fantasy Book Club Book of the Month OR fantasy Read-along Book City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty, (GR 31,112) review a hustler from Egypt ends up in Djinn City, which is beautiful
  • Media Tie-In NovelSuspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond (GR 4,715), review, a Stranger Things prequel, it was ok, but too heartbreaking for me knowing how the characters would end up
  • Novel Featuring an AI CharacterFor We Are Many: Bobiverse, Book 2 by Dennis E. Taylor (GR 28,966), reviewGeek ends up as AI of space probe has to save humanity
  • SFF Novel That Has a Title of Four or More Words Those Brave, Foolish Souls from the City of Swords by Benedict Patrick (GR 237),review .I loved all the Yarnsworld books I read this year. This one is about never meeting your heroes, and its setting is inspired by central or south American about 100 years or so after the Spanish colonization. The gods and creatures in it were very creepy and angry.
  • Retelling!Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett,(GR 86,676) review retelling Macbeth and other Shakespeare plays. Huge fan of Pratchett and especially the Witches, so a favorite, my one reread for this card


Fifth Row Across:

  • SFF Novel by an Australian AuthorWe Ride the Storm by Devin Madson (GR 324), review An Eastern inspired epic fantasy with a whoresassin and lots of beheadings. I read it before it was trad-pubbed, but now would no longer count for hard mode. There are 3 pov characters on different sides of a dangerous conflict. I particularly liked how everything came together to form a big picture.
  • The Final Book of a SeriesDragon Blood by Patrica Briggs (the Hurog duology)( GR 8,360) review Sword and sorcery with a big barbarian and dragon magic. I did a derp and read book 2 of the duology thinking it was book 1, still fun.
  • #OwnVoicesAdventures in New America, an audiodrama written by Stephen Winter and Tristan Cowen,(not on GR, but fewer than 500 followers on spotify or itunes) review. Weird dystopian tale with vampires from outer space and great voice acting. It’s like a radio show set in the world where the events take place. The story itself is cool, described as “sci-fi, political satire, Afrofuturistic buddy comedy” and the characters are fun to be around and clever.
  • LitRPGChanging Faces by Sarah Lin (GR 418), review A villain in transposed to the body of a player character and has to figure out his new situation. He's very annoyed by stat boxes which makes for a very fun book. One of the many "necromancer finding himself" books I read last year.
  • Five SFF Short StoriesRip-Off edited by Gardner Dozois (GR 719)- review a short story anthology where each story rips-off the first line of another book. My favorite was by far The Lady Astronaut of Mars by Mary Robinette Kowal. As with most anthology, I thought some of them were really interesting and others pretty meh.
And here go my other 1 and 3/4 cards, just basic info, mini-reviews to come, but if you're scrambling to finish bingo ask me about them and I'll give more info:

2019.07.26 17:59 Double-Parked_TARDIS Thirty-seven knee-jerk reactions I had while rewatching c2, e5–6 for the 50th time

  1. It just occurred to me that the W train makes an appearance in the opening credits. I wish I could say that this makes the show seem dated, but that train went back into service a couple of years back.
  2. Camille says "far and few between." Just another example of how much more educated she is than the other girls are.
  3. I understand why Tyra makes it clear to April during her (previously unaired) casting interview about the racism in the modeling industry. But she's really harsh. "Do you see Asian girls on the covers of magazines?" Ow. But then April tells Camille that there are fewer slots for Asian models than there are for "any single other race that you could think of right now." While she has a point, and this is nitpicking, there aren't exactly very many slots for Pacific Islanders or Native Americans, either...
  4. During the adjectives challenge, Sara gets the "exotic" label. Mm-hmm... And then she uses the word for herself during the interview challenge. Full circle!
  5. Mercedes' tears give me all the sadness.
  6. Ms. J. says he doesn't know where the psychic lady is. I BET SHE KNOWS WHERE HE IS, THOUGH! Also, the psychic, to Camille: "I don't care if you punch me." I guess Camille is filling the Ebony (c1) role of Sapphire. (smh)
  7. Xiomara: "I hear 'shopping spree,' and I'm, like, 'Where...and how much?'" This woman is my hero.
  8. The look that Janice gives Catie when Catie says she's a virgin. Oh, lawdy. Then, re April: "April doesn't know what to call herself, so that's what kind of bothers me about her. She clearly looks Asian, and she should be proud of it." OK...where to start with that one? I mean, does Janice expect April to traipse around, giving out business cards featuring the race question from the census with "White" and "Asian" both checked off? Despite all of...that, this is the episode where I think Janice is at her best. She almost feels like a maternal figure here.
  9. Yoanna half-suspected that the shoot would involve the contestants swimming in raw sewage. Her logic was sound. And then: "It's just, like, whoa." Camille's education manifests again!
  10. The piano music while Catie and Yoanna are shooting underwater is eerily beautiful. This show's score is underrated.
  11. I can empathize with Xiomara here; the moment my nose goes underwater, the water goes straight up it, and I start choking. Doesn't matter if I'm exhaling—the water will still go in. So, this isn't fair to her. Also, Nole compares April to the, and I quote, "Ever-ready bunny." Don't make pop culture references if you're going to get them wrong, honey.
  12. Janice says that Sara's photo is "too bicep-y." Sara's arms are outstretched with straight elbows, i.e., it is physiologically impossible for the shot to be "bicep-y." (For the record, the correct adjective would be "bicipital." Whenever a noun ends with "-ceps," the adjective ends with "-cipital" because LATIN. Also, the singular and the plural are the same—"one biceps" vs. "two biceps"—because LATIN LATIN GODDAMN LATIN. Come to think of it, "bicipital" just means "of or relating to the biceps," so I think a neologism such as "bicipitous"—“full of biceps"—would be more fitting. Rant over! Thanks for bearing with me.)
  13. Nigel: “This is ‘America's Next Top Model,’ not ‘America's Next Average Model.’" Ermahgerd, Ah herd ner ahdeer. How illuminating!
  14. SHANDI'S SHIRT READS "SHANTHRAX." What?! And then this nonsense among Nigel, Janice, and Nole rears its ugly head: "The bottom line is—is that, obviously, you did get a photograph." "All you need is one!" "No, we don't. I want to see a hundred!"
  15. And Mercedes jokes about her father being a drag queen. Bless. <3
  16. Camille is effing creepy. That is all.
  17. In the wide shot while April is accepting her photo, she has her hand on her hip at such an awkward angle that it looks as though she's trying to keep the bone from popping out.
  18. Xiomara: "Besides being born, this is the best thing that's ever happened to me." Wow.
  19. Camille: "I was just chilling. I wasn't nervous." I don't think that Janice was necessarily right when she called Camille psychotic, but the fact remains that Ms. Jamaica is disturbingly stoic.
  20. Mercedes practically squawks "Shut up!" in her confessional. Another reason why I adore her. However, she pronounces "photographer" as "photo-grapher." Em-PHAS-is on the wrong syl-LAB-le, much? She also worries that April will die of a heart attack before she reaches age 27 due to her anxiety. As a 28 year-old with April-esque levels of anxiety on a daily basis, I'm surprised I made it this far, too.
  21. Mr. Jay vogues a bit while introducing the concept of the photo shoot. OK. And then he introduces Bill Heuberger as a "noted fashion photographer." Wasn't that phrase trademarked by that point to only describe Nigel?
  22. This is Kyle Hagler's first appearance on the show, as ANTM was partnered with IMG this season. I'm bringing this up because he has long braids here, but when he reappears in c15, he has short blond hair. I guess everyone goes the Mr. Jay route eventually.
  23. Tasha Smith has such a pretty, soothing voice. I want her to narrate my life. And is that the "No Scrubs" theme that plays during her introduction, or is it just me? And then she tells the girls to look at the pieces of paper, and I thought she was about to lapse into a Patrick Star sort of "LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT IT. I WANT ALL OF YOU TO LOOK AT IT!!" Later, to Camille: "Come on! You're sucking right now!" And then: "God bless you and your career, but you're just boring." See, this is why I watch this terrible excuse for a show.
  24. Mercedes nonchalantly calls Shandi and Sara "hoes," and they laugh. Somewhere, most likely in metropolitan California, Melrose (c7) is silently screaming.
  25. April is working so goddamn hard to get her crap together this episode and outdo everyone else. This is the episode where I first started to really, really like her. The thing is, though—and this applies to all the contestants—she pronounces "months" as "munts." I know that "th" followed by "s" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but make an effort.
  26. Camille is ad-libbing, and Tasha's flipping through the script repeatedly. Girl, you know what Camille is saying isn't even in there. "I focused my energy into sculpting. I even gave some away to charity." Gave some of what, now?
  27. Mmmmm, this Mark Collier guy is FINE. (And either Tasha is really tall or he's a hot nugget.) And Catie is grossed out. What the what? And Camille thinks that Tasha is wrong for not liking the performance. Sigh. "Camille, you were not effective. And you refuse to be effective. I say, 'Get effective. Get effective.'" That could be a verse in an R&B song, honestly.
  28. James Gay's name is accurate. That is all.
  29. Catie: "Set me on fire—that's cool. Just don't put me up in the air." Why didn't we get this girl to cameo during the c16 runway challenge? Apparently, she causes such a problem that Mr. Jay has to talk to her outside the building. "I pretty much assume I'm gonna fall to my death, which is a very scary thought." I mean, unless that's your kink. But also, dangling midair above a 100-foot hole does not compare to dangling merely twenty feet in the air.
  30. Camille's random accent. Is this what Dionne (c8) thought she had to do during the acting challenge? "Camille needs to work on her diction."
  31. Mr. Jay: "Tough superhero, not tough Bronx." Mercedes, trying to cover: "I'm from Jersey!" Yes, you are, dear.
  32. Yoanna's cheekbones in the commercial scare me. And Shandi overdoes it a tad. But whatever.
  33. Tasha just randomly appears, almost hovering, beside the panel: "I need all of them to want you sexually. That's your objective." OK, girl.
  34. Camille delivers her line and then starts walking forward without breaking eye contact. The only other time I've laughed this hard at panel awkwardness is when Danielle (c6) was wearing that mask and slowly strutting towards a bug-eyed Ms. J.
  35. Tyra tells April that it's good that she can "go that other way" because it makes her more "versatile." Is she commenting on the androgyny of April's photo, or is Tyra trying to convince April to adjust her Kinsey scale ranking?
  36. Janice reads Shandi's shirt as "Evil Shand-eye." It says "Shandar." READ, DAMN IT! Also, Nigel, Yoanna can't be eliminated just because you don't want to see her in swimwear.
  37. I have come to a new conclusion about Camille, and it occurred to me while Tyra was criticizing her performance during the bottom two: "This week with the whole acting experience, you didn't open up. But being in the entertainment industry is all about vulnerability, and nobody wants a cold-ass model on set. Even right now, Camille—hard as nails. ‘I'm not gonna let anybody see me sweat. 'Cause if I have to pack my bags, they'll know I didn't shed any tears for them. I didn't show any vulnerability.’" It's not necessarily that Camille was rude, insensitive, privileged, literal, or apathetic, though she very much was all of those. Rather, it's that she simply didn't have the right type of personality for television. Notice how Tyra clearly says that vulnerability is key to success in the entertainment industry—with any connection to modeling an afterthought. That's what I think the issue is: Camille simply wasn't exciting enough in person to last on the show for as long as she had, and Tyra was misreading the whole situation, mistaking Camille's simple, innate lack of a strong personality for emotional repression. Look at how she's putting words in Camille's mouth; Camille probably wasn't thinking anything remotely close to the whole "I'm not gonna let anybody see me sweat" nonsense. Camille even established earlier in the episode that she was in no way nervous about going home when she and Xiomara appeared together in the bottom two; she was, to use her phrasing, "just chilling." Tyra kept thinking that the show would force Camille to reveal whatever she was holding in, but there wasn't much more there. And therein lies the problem.

Questions Answers
Who is your favorite commenter? It's Cookie Monster, right? I enjoy Cookie Monster. I have a stupid affinity for the Taco Bell Bell. I saved that guy from getting deleted I don't know how many times.
Would you rather fight one giant Todd VanDerWerff, or fifty tiny Scott Tobiases? Why? Fifty tiny Scott Tobiases. They would all get very flustered and debate for half an hour whether they should even be doing this.
Sean, who's your favorite Harry Potter character? GET BACK TO WORK, GENEVIEVE.
Link to www.snpp.com. Ugh, yes. This is why you never write anything on the Internet, because it's immortal. That is angry 18-year-old Sean O'Neal, pent up in his dorm room, registering his disgust throughout the world.
Sean, thank you for doing Newswire every day. You're one of the few writers who does something profoundly creative and hilarious with the news, rather than just being overtly cynical and catty and passing it off as humor. I wanted to ask this: what is your typical process for writing a Newswire? What makes you go from a fairly normal story with humor to something as bizarre yet wonderful as the Entourage movie script or the Malick-TMZ piece? Boredom with myself, mostly. And the fact that I'm my own editor.
EDIT: Also, have you ever considered writing/compiling a book of the best Newswires/Buzzkills/some other topic? Or will that come after Dan in Real Life 2: Back 2 Tha Life gets greenlit? The book idea is nice, but Newswires have next to no shelf life. They're meant to be topical, and nothing is worse than topical humor immortalized in book form. Dan In Real Life 2, however, is an idea whose time has always come.
Why did I get a Community notification for this? Also, working for The AV Club is probably a great job. What's the worst job you've ever had? Tech support at Apple, followed closely by the year I spent cold-calling people in their homes, asking them to take surveys about computers. Basically anything involving the phone.
, we thank you for popularizing that photo of Brett Ratner reading the Big Butt Book. I'm wondering if there's anything you can tell us about the abrupt departure of A.V. Club editor Keith Phipps. Was there some dispute between him and the management at The Onion? There's nothing really to tell. It just seemed to be time for a change. It wasn't like a scene from The Newsroom where he stomped in and gave some haughty speech about integrity or whatever. I miss Keith. We all miss Keith. But he's doing fine.
Hello, Sean. In 10 years? Hopefully in a nicer neighborhood, maybe somewhere I can finally get a dog. But to answer your question, yes, the AVC is really, unusually great about nurturing the staff and/or not just firing them. Many of us have been around for six-plus years, which is all but unheard of in this landscape. But I don't think it's an eitheor, as obviously we've also benefited greatly from new people—particularly in TV Club, where a ton of great writers came out of the woodwork.
One of the reasons that I enjoy reading the A.V. Club is that the personalities of all the writers shine through. You're not just reading reviews and news stories at face value, but reading them through the eyes of a passionate pop culture consumer. With that said, do you consider the A.V. Club a site where the staff are allowed to mature into old age? Or does the site benefit from a revolving door of "new blood?" Where do you see yourself in ten years? NO COMEDY ANSWERS PLEASE! That said, I fear every morning that today is the day I'm going to be discovered and sent back to office temping, where I belong. I'm always really grateful when I make it to 6pm without that happening.
How much leeway are you given on story selection? Are you largely choosing what's covered, or are you assigned stories, or are you given a number of stories to choose from and then you pick out some you like? Or is it not even that structured? Not even that structured. I'm the News Editor, so everything goes through me. I say, "Hey, maybe this would be funny," and then News Editor me says, "Go with it! You're my superstar!" And then I say, "Your confidence is making me uncomfortable."
Can you explain how having such a strong no-freelancer policy benefits the site? Well, first of all, I don't make the rules, etc. etc. That said, we actually do have a fairly open-door policy for trying out to be a contributor to TV Club, provided you can properly impress Todd, and a lot of our writers have used that as a back door to writing more things on the site. (Just look at the AVQ&A entries, which are almost 75% freelance contributors these days.)
Context for why I'm asking: I recently wrote a piece that was picked up by many mainstream outlets, A.V. Club included. You posted it in your news section, along with your own (very enjoyable) take on it. It worked out beautifully for me, and definitely generated more revenue than a freelance fee would. But in an alternate universe, I probably would shop stories like that to you guys. From a layman's perspective, it seems having news originate from the A.V. Club would bring more readers in and further strengthen your position as an entertainment news source, wouldn't it? So what's behind the decision to not do that? As for contributing news stories, I have tried out freelancers there, but the time and workload demands usually prove to be too much for them to do on a freelance basis. I am considering issuing another open call to try again. Maybe you can try out.
Your contempt for the vapidity of the pop culture zeitgeist seems pretty genuine, which puts you in a unique position among entertainment journalists. Is it kind of draining on your soul to be so deeply immersed in that world all the time? I feel like this question should be accompanied by the sound of a dripping faucet, filmed in stark black and white. Maybe while a clown cries in the corner.
Anyway, I think the conception that I'm a dark, tormented person, whipped by the violent winds of pop culture's howling abyss, is sort of overstated. I honestly don't think my contempt is any more genuine than any other online or TV jackass whose job it is to make comedy hay out of this stuff. I'm fine, really.
Sean, Has an AVClub commenter ever made a comment that you wish you had thought of first? I envied the guy who wrote the "Jonah Hill in Far Side: The Movie" comment, though I generally try to not make jokes about appearances, so I probably wouldn't have gone that route. Or at least, that's what I tell myself, to quench my burning jealousy.
Also, a couple of years ago I wrote about Vanilla Ice playing Captain Hook in a Peter Pan pantomime, and someone said something like, "I bet he just stole that hook." I briefly considered quitting.
Was there music before Dawes? Ha ha ha, DAWES.
What was your favorite Newswire to write? Maybe just the most memorable as you've done so many. Love them. I tend to like the ones that other people find baffling or outright hate: the ones about Terrence Malick, for example, or that one told from the perspective of a bunny who was relieved to hear that John Goodman got cast in the next Hangover.
Also, this old one I wrote about the McDonald's Snack Wrap: Link to www.avclub.com
Hi Sean, let me just start out by saying that I read your articles every morning to avoid working, even if it’s only for a few minutes, and I love every second of that procrastination. Your articles are absolutely hilarious and contain immense wit, as someone who works in film it’s the only way I like to read my film news. Does the added element of writing humor into your articles limit the amount you are able to write in a day, or does the humor come very naturally to your writing and the av club just chooses to limit the amount of articles in a day? Yes, it limits the amount I'm able to write in a day—as does doing things like this!—but my reasoning has always been that you can get this news on dozens of other sites. Only on our site can you get it filtered through some convoluted absurdist thing that's funny specifically to me.
If Brett Ratner were to unexpectedly die today, would his obituary have the picture of him reading the Big Butt Book, and if not, WHY NOT? I think about this a lot, actually. Mostly I just hope he doesn't die.
Has anyone you've ever written about snarkily then come into contact with you about it? Anyone take it badly or pretty well? I had an encounter with Thomas Jane a while back where I, of my own drunken volition, told him about my "Thomas Jane is gay for sandwiches" post. He laughed about it, then went back to being handsome ol' famous Thomas Jane.

What about your heartbreaking (for me) Twitter fight with Marc Maron? Oh yeah, that was dismaying for me as well. We've worked it out since then, fortunately.
1) Are you in the same office as VanDerWerff, or do y'all work from home? 1) Todd lives in LA. I work in the Chicago office.
2) Have you ever run anybody's underpants up a flagpole (including TVDW)? 2) Well, now I will.
3) How did you get this gig, and what advice (if any) do you have for aspiring writers? 3) I answered a Craigslist add seeking someone to be the Austin city editor in '06, back when the Austin edition existed, and after jumping through several hoops and convincing Josh Modell that I wouldn't be terrible at it, here I am. My advice would be to go through websites with an open-door submission policy for a while and build up your résumé there, like I did at PopMatters. Or get an awesome girlfriend who still combs the writing/editing jobs on Craigslist while you're working at the video store because you've given up.
How much do the AV Club writers interact with each other? I know a lot of people are probably freelance writers around the country, but is there a central office somewhere? Yes, almost all of the actual staff are in Chicago in a single office, except for Todd VanDerWerff and Noel Murray. (And yes, our various freelancers/TV Club contributors are scattered all over.) Right now I could throw something and hit Tasha, Nathan, Scott, Josh, Kyle, Genevieve, Marah, or Erik Adams (were he not in LA at the moment). But I won't, because we don't throw things. Throwing things is wrong.
Also, Genevieve and Marah and Erik and I spend a lot of time socializing outside of work. I've seen almost all of them throw up.
How much in love did you fall with St. Vincent, Sean? My wife thinks it was a lot. Who hasn't fallen in love with St Vincent? I defy you to spend any amount of time with her and not fall in love with her, unless you are a robot. In which case, get away from that robot, St Vincent! It has no capacity for love!
Which Newswire headline/image are you most proud of? This particular combination is a new favorite of mine. I'm pretty proud of the Saw guy on a waterslide.
How many times have you used the Brett Ratner butt photo in your career? A better question would be how many times have I not used it.
You seem to have met a fair amount of celebrities - who is your favorite, the person you'd most like to have a drink with? I spent several hours having an unexpectedly leisurely lunch with Nick Offerman, followed by a phone interview so long I actually had to beg off so I could do some work. We didn't have a drink, but we both enjoy scotch and made vague plans to enjoy scotch together someday.
Also, least favorite AV Club meme? I'm not overly fond of "Sean O'Neal is dead/a robot/a zombie." What if I really died then became a robot or zombie? Then what?
If you could do more reviewing instead of the newswire, what would you like to do? Would you do more music or movies reviews, or a specific TV show? Or maybe you would more For Your Considerations, or write a book? I'm curious where your interests lie beyond pop culture commentary. I did music reviews for our site for a long time (and still do some occasionally), and I did TV Club entries for shows like South Park. I definitely didn't find either as rewarding as just writing whatever I wanted to and trying to make myself laugh. I know that's probably hard to believe.
Like I tell Josh whenever we have employee reviews: I look at myself as the resident smartass—the "And now, on the lighter side of the news" guy—whose crap is made possible by the ballast of the genuine work my much more thoughtful colleagues provide. Then I quote that scene from Talk Radio where Alec Baldwin tells Eric Bogosian, "You're the joker in my deck and I love you," and Josh tells me he didn't see it.
How does it feel to be the 2012 AV Club writer of the year? I could do without the constant hazing from the other AV Club writers, but otherwise thanks for that.
Thanks for doing this AMA! I love The A.V. Club and The Onion (especially the real newsprint). I have 3 questions. What's your favorite A.V. Club/The Onion article you wish you had written? When the Onion first started it had coupons for pizza and other things, but seemed to be the same type of deals we still get today. Were those coupons real? I think I answered this up top. Also, there was this humor column I wrote for my junior high newspaper where I totally stuck it to my history teacher Mr. Brown and his weird love affair with his stapler. Ha ha, suck it, Mr. Brown! You're weirdly possessive of your stapler! That's a hard one. Steve's "Whatever Happened To Alt Nation" articles seemed to enthrall my wife, who almost never reads my stuff, so I had some real professional jealousy there. And my favorite Onion story changes all the time. I recently had a good laugh over recalling this one: Link to www.theonion.com
Yes, they're still real, and still valid. Don't leave your local pizzeria until they accept them. Talk louder if you must.
What type of new stuff can we expect from AV Club in 2013? A new branded feature every hour! "Sit Down And Watch Breaking Bad," a new video series in which Patton Oswalt sits down and watches Breaking Bad! AVBBQ&A, where staff members answer questions about barbecue! Community notifications! Probably a news story about Ben Gibbard doing something! At least some of these are honest answers!
Can you tell me whether or not I should really be watching Adventure Time? Friends tell me I should and yet I haven't. I have no idea. I hear it's a show but I haven't watched it. On a possibly related topic, I don't take mushrooms anymore.
If you opened a BBQ restaurant, what would be the best items on the menu? I don't have an answer for this. Why didn't I think more about my imaginary BBQ restaurant before agreeing to do this?! Damn it! This phantom BBQ restaurant is out of business before it even began!
• Is Goodfellas by chance your favorite movie of all time? (It definitely is mine). Every time you write an article related to Goodfellas, you quote all the greatest lines, which I think is fucking awesome. Keep up the great work, man. It is, yes.
• Do you watch Doctor Who at all? If so, who is your favorite character? No.
• Have you seen Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (starring Neil Patrick Harris)? You should. Yes.
• Favorite ice cream flavor? I'm actually kinda lactose intolerant.
Sean. Todd VanDerWerff. Is there something going on there? Miles and miles of geographical distance cooling a white-hot love love affair. Or something.
I saw your picture in a The Onion article not too long ago. (sorry, don't have the link) Is that common for The Onion to use staff photos (either AV Club or The Onion) in their articles? Or perhaps better yet do they NOT use staff in their photos? Yep! Scott Tobias is in one this week, as the guy with freshly reenergized hate for his job. We all share an office, so we're easy to get.
My Onion photo happened like this: "So, we had this story we thought you'd be good for, about a complete know-it-all asshole whom everyone hates..." (paraphrasing)
Since Keith Phipps left the AVClub, in which direction do you hope the AVClub editorial policy and leadership will head, and in which direction do you think it will actually go? Honestly, the leadership at the site has always been very hands-off and always about allowing writers to develop their own voice. I get that Keith leaving probably seems, to an outsider, like a huge deal that signifies some sort of regime change, but—as much as we personally miss Keith—we're continuing along the same path that he set out for us.
Now that he's gone, I do get fewer crappy DVDs on my desk that Keith thought I "should have." That sort of "change in leadership" is always welcome.
Hey Sean, Long time, first time... The fact that they're constantly in the news helps. They also have such well-defined personae and a vast history of interlocking references within that—giant trailers, for example, or the way that every Lohan story immediately transforms into a JFK-like conspiracy. I'm attracted to the narrative.
I've noticed that your Newswire stories tend to have favorite targets. Will Smith and Lindsey Lohan come to mind. What is it about certain celebrities that makes you keep returning to them? Also, along the same lines, are certain Newswire pieces fueled by a genuine dislike of the person or is it all just for the lulz? I'm not particularly fond of Dane Cook, I guess. But mostly it's just about the laughs.
What about Paltrow? she seems to come up quite often as well. I love writing about Paltrow because I secretly wish I wrote for Real Simple magazine or Sephora catalogs.
How long does it normally take to write an article? Do you put a lot of effort into making them so funny? Anything longer than 30 minutes is generally too long and not going to be very funny, so somewhere around there. I used to spend three to five hours writing Friday and Daily Buzzkills, which is why I don't do that anymore.
How do you determine which pop culture gets through and what gets weeded out? "Can I make this into a joke" and "Will someone post this in the comments of another article if I don't address it" are generally the two factors I consider. Or if it's something about a podcast or Bob Mould, it's probably because Kyle Ryan made me do it.
How much TV do you watch weekly? Any favorite shows? (currently airing or all time) A normal amount, I think... I watch the same shows most of you watch (NBC Thursdays, AMC, HBO). My favorites of all time? The Sopranos, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Larry Sanders Show, Kids In The Hall.
Joel or Mike? Joel, definitely. I get into arguments with Erik Adams about this all the time.
Thank you so much for writing things. Seriously, you've brightened many an otherwise painful office morning for me with your hilarious posts. I owe you a drink. If you could write an in-depth profile (a la Stephen Rodrick's NYT Magazine article on Lindsay Lohan) on any pop-culture mainstay, who would it be and why? I would genuinely love to follow James Franco around for a day, for probably obvious reasons. And I think he would genuinely never allow that to happen, for equally obvious reasons.
Can you share what you've written for The Onion? Does it follow the same pop culture slant as your Newswires? We generally don't like to spread around bylines, since it's all a collaborative effort anyway. But some do concern pop culture, some don't.
Do you have any plans to write for TV / do any writing work outside of AV club and The Onion? I worked on a pilot that didn't get picked up... Of course I'd like to work on something like that again. Are you by any chance producer Greg Daniels?
Do you miss the long form of Friday Buzzkills at all? Or is has the frequent and short form of newswires been easiemore satisfying? Sometimes, though as I said up above, it used to take me almost an entire workday to do them, and I definitely don't miss that. But yes, there was a craft to them that only many hours of me unnecessarily overwriting things, pacing around while muttering to my cat, and considering quitting my job entirely at least once a day could produce. But I hope having more stories to read generally makes up for it.
Will you and Paul F Tompkins please team up in some sort of Best Week Ever reboot? Thanks in advance. No, Chuck Nice.
Can you briefly describe your past leading up to working at the AV Club? Playing in bands and waiting tables/office temping > dark drug-fueled period > no longer playing in bands and working at a video store > freelancing for various websites > finding a girlfriend who believed I could actually be a writer who insisted I try out for The AV Club > unbelievable amounts of money and respect.
You are almost universally adored it seems by AVC commenters, and yet on your twitter and sometimes on the AVC itself you consistently seem pretty misanthropic about how people on the internet regard you. Is there a reason for the disconnect that isn't as obvious to those looking in? I guess I only notice the bad stuff, like a lot of "public figures" (even the incredibly minor ones like me). If there are a dozen nice comments and then one negative comment letting me know that I'm not funny and why, then I will naturally obsess over that one comment. Also, it would be boring to constantly retweet the positive comments on Twitter. That's why I unfollowed Judd Apatow.
What kind of other formats (or whatever you want to call it: interviews, novels, etc) are you, as a writer, interested in doing/exploring? I really don't like doing interviews, actually. I came up with Random Roles because I hated prepping for them and I hate the canned answers they usually produce. So not that.
Like everyone ever, I've had several novels in various states of progress, I've written four screenplays of varying degrees of awful, and I wrote a TV pilot that didn't get picked up but wasn't that bad. I have another one I've fleshed out that I should sit down and actually write, some day when I'm not too tired from writing Newswire and just want to drink.
Can you wake up a little earlier so us East Coast folks don't have to wait until noon for the funnies to start rolling in? No.
Oh, did you ever have a haircut like Bobby Briggs from Twin Peaks? I don't think so. I think Kyle used to.
A couple of possibly uninspired questions: Do you have any plans on collecting the old Friday Buzzkills for people, or yourself, to look back on? What's the story behind A Roman Scandal? Do you keep in touch with those Trail of Dead guys? Like in a hardbound book, or...? Probably not. They're easily found as is.
A Roman Scandal was one of several bands I was in, though the only one with a functioning Wikipedia page. I played guitar and ended up having to fill in on lead vocals when Jason abruptly left, right before our tour with The Faint, to go record Source Tags And Codes. Our last show was on a rooftop in downtown Austin where the PA blew out, and Jason threw a guitar down onto 5th Ave. Great story, I know. And yes, I'm still friends with Jason, friendly with Conrad and Kevin. I just saw them in November. Jason's a total boring dad now.
What do you think about your popularity among the commenters? Is that a thing? I only read the bad stuff.
Your Franco updates are easily my favorite things to show up on AV Club. Could you compile a faux-criticism about the new Franco movement? I've written some stuff here and there and had some offers. But I really like what I'm doing. And come on now, Grantland's not so bad. Steve seems happy there.
Hyden and Vanderwerff are now writing at awful, terrible, shitty fucking Grantland.com, in addition to their AV Club duties. Have you been contacted to do work elsewhere? Do you already do this and I don't know about it? I don't know what The New Franco Movement is, but I'm going to abandon my workaday existence to join it right now, and I urge you all to do the same.
Since AVClub was notoriously silent on this record, can we get a few words from you on this, Sean? Sounds like dick.
(My pal Johnny, everyone.)
Please never stop using that Harrison Ford picture for all Star Wars related news. I have no question. Just a request. Always use it. It never fails to make me laugh, because I feel as if all Star Wars related news is perfectly captured by that one image of annoyed Harrison Ford. Thanks. I've explained this before, but yes, I hope that everyone gets that it's a reference to Star Wars trying to get off the ground amid unhelpful chatter. It has layers!
I have the same name as you. But I'm the funny one. Obviously.

Questions Answers
I'm under 18 and clicked im over 18, watcha gon do about it? This is a problem for the entire global network of adult sites. In the UK they are thinking about making every internet connection owner have to activate access to adult sites. Personally I think this is quite a good idea; when I was 16 there were few opportunities to see pictures of breasts. Now any kid can have access to millions of pics and hardcore porn. For free. I just don't understand how this can help society.
It did make me think of a funny comedy sketch. Imagine a couple ordering a new internet connection together..
Her "honey, we don't need that filth do we?" him "well it could spice up our sex life?" her "but you've got me already?" him "hmm yeah, we don't need that"
I'd give it an hour until he phones the company behind his misses' back to activate :)
What's the harm in letting minors watch porn? It's just too much too soon. You need to enjoy being a child before you can grow into a porn-obsessed adult like the rest of us males lol.
Is it somehow required to have that "are you over 18" thing, or is it something you just do to be nice? I've noticed a lot of tube sites don't have it. We do try and be as responsible as possible... but it seems to be the wild west on the internet with regards to pornsites. Many sites that get 10's million visitors daily don't have the over 18 thing.
In the UK they are thinking about making every internet connection owner have to activate access to adult sites. No, they are thinking about giving the facility to implement ISP-level adult filters. Users would not be required to proactively enable adult content. I think we're talking about the same thing, I just phrased it awfully!
I like to think that I grew up okay :) Also, if you think you can keep minors away from porn on the net, you are seriously misjudging minors. Yeah don't get me wrong, I am pro-porn obviously. It hasn't affected my ability to relate to girls in any way, and it annoys me when I read these 'porn addiction' type articles. Males are just visually stimulated, and females emotionally stimulated; it's as simple as that. :)))
Gogogogo stereotyping. Lol, Inspector Gadget doesn't care.
What percentage of the female models are forced to do porn (i.e., pimped)? How is the general atmosphere towards women (in terms of sexism and violence)? From my experience the women lead the show, without them there is no porn so if there is anything negative happening it usually gets stamped out pretty fast.
[Posted this on a tangentially related AMA but I'm genuinely interested in this subject] That I know of, 0%. But I'm sure it does happen in the industry. Most likely this is from girls who are not represented by an agency and are just approach by the owner of bigboobsnakednow.con on the street.
Wow, thanks a lot for the very detailed answer! Of course, I suspect this is not the same for all those amateur Russian videos but it is quite refreshing to know that women are not being (systematically) mistreated in mainstream porn. [Edit: added the word mainstream] Don't even get me started on that! I love European girls, especially Russian.. they are beautiful and very much to my personal taste. But any porno I see with them in just makes me either want to feed them up or beat the male talent to death with a stick for being so rough with them.
P.s. you're welcome, happy to answer anything that you're curious about :)
Russian is not European. Yep, but you still have to get a VISA so I guess it was wrong as a European to say such a thing. My bad.
1) Are you featured in the videos? (male actor) 1) I am the camera man :) I can't act but you can hear my voice in most of the videos.
2) For how long are you planning on keeping this gig going? or rather, any plans to stop at some point? 2) The concept will continue regardless of my situation, these girls are amazing outgoing confident people, and their personalities and daily lives deserve exposure way more than the Kardashians.
3) Don't want to sound mean, this is a completely honest question, what happens if time passes an one of the girls who lives in the house isn't attractive enough anymore to draw enough attention, and make hiring her financially reasonable? Will you kick her out of the house? (this can be due to whatever reason) 3) The house is an Agency house, the girls are there regardless of this website idea.
4) Having people come in and out of the house to perform for the website, how worried are you about STDs? do you have a decontamination chamber coming into the house? 4) Not at all :) All the girls are required to have tests to work in the industry. Generally it's safer sleeping with a pornstar than someone from out of the industry. This comes down to the fact that asking your new girlfriend for proof that she is clear of all STIs is a bit of a buzz kill.. while in the adult industry it is mandated. I do often wonder why general society isn't made to have compulsory tests, even if it was every 6 months or something! Always use protection though folks!
Have you talked to your ex-wife since? Oh my f*cking god you can't imagine how much I hate her right now, she made my life very financially difficult for a very long time. To answer your question, nope we don't speak. You should see the reasons why she divorced me, it's almost the most ironic thing you could ever read. I'll add a link to it in the description :)
I don't think choosing porn as a profession would mix well with any marriages. You are most likely right. Although I wasn't originally going to be so involved in the industry.
I don't think you understand what irony means. Please set me straight if I don't ohsweetmoses :)
I find it personally ironic maybe..
Holy Moly, thinking about it.. it would be pretty ironic if I didn't understand what irony means! :S
Because you literally told her she was fat/unattractive? (see the divorce statement) The relationship was over 5 years. We had just a handful of arguments that whole time. My main gripe was that she was putting on a lot of weight and I wasn't finding her as attractive as I did at the beginning of the relationship. I did try and tackle this issue tactfully, I'm a tactful person by nature. I never called her fat or unattractive in those words. That's just there to make me appear in a negative light. Like every day I woke up and yelled 'you stupid fat bitch stop eating pies!'. This couldn't have been further from the truth.
How ironic. I new there was irony in this story somewhere!!!
Will April Turner let me bang her? I love the gingers. Ha, believe it or not she and her husband are actually swingers, so hit her up on Twitter! lol.
That means ill need to bring a chick...Ill a find random one to bring along. lol. Just be a gentleman :) She does love girls as much as guys though.. she has a mega crush on Faye Reagan..
So we have some things in common, lol. Just throw in my favorite redhead Maddy O'Reily while you're at it!
You know her? Tell me more.. I have seen her about, but not much more than that. She's a beautiful girl for sure... I'm useless with the girls I fancy, and awesome with the girls I don't fancy. FML!
Can I come to stay, please? All rooms are full sorry.. :( unless you have genuine female genitalia and are at least a 7 out of 10, then I'm sure we can squeeze you in :)
So you're saying there's a chance. I'm saying if you're a female pornstar your chances have increased dramatically.
Im a fan of Amia Miley...love her ass. She is dating that doucher from the Jersey Shore? Holy shit.... When I first got in the industry she was my fav. All my demo websites used her as an example profile. The first guy who saw it was like "hey, you wanna meet her?" made a call and she came straight over. Yes, it's THAT small an industry in LA.. everyone knows everyone. And sadly it's true, she is dating that guy. :(
How is Tori Black's personality? Tori Black.. man... she's a seriously cool girl. I first met her while I was a rookie visiting the model house over a year and a half ago.. she just came out and sat in the chair next to me. The only bit of the conversation I remember was her saying "it's because I suck dick like a champ".. lol. She's way too big time for me to see her very often in person.. she's got too much money to spend. She's recently become a mother so she's not as active as she used to be.
Yes, it's THAT small an industry in LA.. Business isn't going amazing due to the piracy epidemic. Studios don't have the budgets of yesteryear, which means girls get booked less and have to resort to more webcamming to bolster their earnings. With new laws like mandated condom use coming into effect it's still an unpredictable industry. The economic recession on the whole isn't helping one bit. Saying that, the gambling and porn industries are always the most recession resistant. I've answered about how to get into the industry in a different comment - basically it's not the easiest thing in the world, unless you start your own content studio or something.
What is the porn scene and the people in it like? How is business going these days? How big is it and how to get into it when you are not an actor? It's quite a civilized affair really, as hard as that sounds. The girls chat in bedrooms while getting ready, the guys (usually) hang about in the kitchen setting up the lights and sound etc.. It's in everyone's interests to be as professional as possible and get great scenes captured as quickly as possible. While the money the girls earn is high, it's very hard work for them, involving a long day.. It really annoys me on a fundamental level about piracy. While we've ALL done it at some point or other, there needs to be a line drawn somewhere. How would you feel if you had to bake a million cakes to be able to sell 3 for $2?
Thanks for the answers! How much of "Californication" is actually "real" or have you witnessed? I'm such a Hank idol! I love that show.. I haven't spent any time in LA with people not from the porn industry, so I really couldn't say with any kind of accuracy. All I know is that 9/10 times girls aren't very impressed when they find out you're working in the adult industry, and the chance of leading a Moody-esque lifestyle is reduced dramatically. :( It's a shame, I really would like to know some LA people who aren't in the industry to try and balance the lifestyle out a bit.
What is the stance on drugs in the house? No drugs are allowed in the house. There are a lot of 'model houses' that just become drug dens full of junkies on crystal meth etc.. but this is the polar opposite. However cannabis is smoked heavily in LA in general (being relatively legal with a medical marijuana card) and at least 70% of pornstars I've met habitually smoke it. If you watch any of the videos on the site you may notice quite a few little green cannabis canisters on the table.. :)
Okay, so if this is the case..will you lemme stay with the porn stars if I can give you all the dankest nugs/concentrates for the best prices? Edit: They probably dont give a shit about money or quality nug huh?! as long as they're high. Herbos - have you been to LA? You would love the dispensaries.. weed stores are more available than 7-11s!
1)How big is this mansion? 2) Are you an agent for them? 3) Can you support yourself on this alone? 1.) 6 bedroom, well actually if you watch a lot of the videos you'll notice there are two mansions.. they're not on a par with Will Smith's pad I imagine, but they are big to what I'm used to..
2.) I'm in the process of making official websites for a lot of pornstars such as www.tashareign.com , but first and foremost I see myself as a friend to them as corny as that sounds.
3.) Not yet, believe it or not I haven't started promoting the site yet, I guess this is the starting point for that lol.
Friendzoned by pornstars. And most redditors think that they've got it bad. Lol :))
So it looks like your house is in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Do your neighbors over the fence know of the activities that take place inside the house? Are they cool with it? Yes everyone knows.. and no they're not ecstatic with it. However as residents we are all very respectful and quiet. Nobody can really see in the pool area.
This past Halloween we were all getting ready for a party. I had just returned from a short trip in London. The doorbell went and I wandered downstairs to see who it was. I had completely forgotten about the whole trick-or-treating thing. I opened the door to a fleet of children eagerly awaiting their sweets. We had nothing in the house that was appropriate and I knew it! So I ran upstairs pleading to some of the girls to help me out. Unfortunately they had nothing either. So I had to go down and break the children's hearts. I open the door, and now there were twice as many kids. I broke the bad news and they all looked mortified and they walked off. But I do remember the last kid, who couldn't have been more than 10 years old trailing behind them... his final words? "we could at least get a free subscription!". So yes, it's fair to say that they all know of the house.
Do you have any flings with your hot porn star room mates? If you say no, I will probably ask for proof. The hardest thing living at the house is to not fall in love with some of the girls you meet. There isn't a great deal of things to do in the evenings, so there is a lot of time to bond as friends, and sometimes it goes further than that. I personally try to make it feel as though they're at 'home' and not at 'work' while in the house, but sometimes that's counter productive and just leads to them wanting to fuck you. :S
It must be very hard. That's what she said. :)
Are you not allowed to be in the film then? I made a personal choice to stay out of the camera.. although I do screw up every now and then with reflections etc.. I want the focus of the content to be the girls and not my goofy self hogging the limelight lol.
What were you doing for a living before all of this? I was working for a charity as a web developer. Essentially I'm a digitally focused creative at heart.
Can you share your favorite, or most wild, story from a mansion party? Being honest, parties aren't a frequently occurring event at the house. It is irresponsible with the girls having to do scenes most days. Sure there's a lot of drinking and smoking antics going on daily, but not what you'd imagine from the films. This was definitely my favorite moment in the house so far though... Link to www.pornmodelhouse.com
Be honest. How high were you to think that was funny? Damn, the game is up :( lol.
Given the plethora of porn sites out there, how do you plan to stand out? I guess I'm curious about your business plan. You're right, there are billions of them. Unfortunately I can't discuss our business plan here, but to try and summarize without giving anything away... we're focusing on the pornstars personalities first and foremost.
Serious question. Interesting questions!
Did your perception of the porn stars change at all before/during your stay? My perception has stayed the same throughout, they are just outgoing, confident sexually driven people. All the girls I have met are like that. They are the definition of fun at times, very tomboy like.
Did you have an impression of how they were going to be like/act/behave and were you (un)pleasantly surprised? I'm not sure I had any preconceived ideas of what they'd be like. They really are just normal people most of the time. They struggle with love and other issues just like the rest of us.
What did they say was the main reason they entered into porn? Family issues? Drugs? Money problems? None of the above? Main reasons for entering porn is usually one of the following: Daddy issues, the lure of money, the desire to be in the limelight, the fame factor, the thrill of going against society norms.. etc. I haven't seem many girls with heavy drug issues in the Industry believe it or not.
Please make sure that none of the videos pan to and only to the man's face at any point during the deed. Do you have ANY idea how horrendously awkward that is when you're fapping away and are faced with some buff dude's jizzface? I know what you mean there! I give you my word that no-porn I shoot for my entire life will feature this :)
Yes or no, have you slept with any of the pornstars? if so, how many and how was it? Yes, but I don't discuss the details of this.. I will say that it's not like the porn films you watch, while the girls are very confident with their sexual prowess, there's a difference between work sex and private-life sex.
Do you date them or just sex? I'm such a stupid romantic at heart.. I'm always looking for the 'one' and now due to my career choice it seems it's going to have to be a pornstar - someone who can deal with the fact I socialize with a lot of desirable girls. Sex on its own doesn't mean much to me personally.
How big is your penis? Whatever I put no-one will believe it's the real answer. It is nowhere near 12" but bigger than average.
How much money do you make per year? We are a start-up company - any money we make gets reinvested back into the company. It sucks for now, but one day I hope to say billions!!!
How many guys came on your face when you were waking up from a black out hangover? Lol :))
In your link to your wifes accusations your desciption says you never cheated on her, but one of her accusations is that you were seeking an extra marital affair, also there she accuses you of agreeing to relations, and then there is the meeting with the ex-girlfriend. As you have brought up these documents, which don't really pertain to your IAMA, (as I see it at least,) what is your response, and reasoning for these claims? Hi yes you're right, I should have explained some of the points. This was a scan of what she wrote, not necessarily what was the truth.
This ex-girlfriend thing is a perfect example. Here's the truth behind that line of text.
Basically we were at that 'be honest no matter what' point of a relationship. I used the example that sometimes you can't be honest with your partner because they jump to conclusions. She asked me what I meant, so I told her about the time I met up with an ex-girlfriend for 1 drink. We hadn't seen each other for nearly 6 years, and it was a completely innocent occasion just to check we were both still alive. But I knew if I told my wife that I was going to meet up with an ex it would have just caused a lot of anxiety and she would presume I wanted the other girl. At the time she actually replied 'don't be silly! Of course I wouldn't have minded!'. But roll on 6 months and it was in my divorce statement :S
Why does cameramen always film in the weirdest and most repulsing angles? I for one don't want to see a hairy mans bum when watching straight porn. Ha thought you were talking about my camera work there! Phew!
I guess everyone has a different opinion on such things... Perhaps you would be more of a fan of P.O.V type porn?
I recorded some solo scenes to sell for the model house site, but I'd never film a boy-girl scene.. I just don't want to see another guy naked that much lol.
Very valid point! :) And, yeah - Everyone has their different opinion, but from the amount of people complaining about cameramens work I'm sure there's more than me who's annoyed by it. Anyways, nice AMA & you're living pretty much every mans dream. I for one envy you. Thank you for your comments qtprot :) Believe me the grass always seems greener...
Can I get a job helping you out? No, really...I'll do whatever. I think this is the number one question... sorry JohnWad, can't save them all :(
How has this affected your social life, like with prior friends and whatnot? and I'm from the valley and I'm genuinely interested in working in the industry (not performing), any advice on how to go about that? thanks! I'm lucky to be able to keep the two relatively separate. While I'm in the UK I only know a few pornstars and I spend a lot of time with my friends from before I entered the industry. I do have issues with my male friends all wanting to meet pornstars all day like I'm some pornstar cupid or something.. and any of the female friends that I may have liked have since become not an option. Any girl who hears that I hang out with pornstars just presume I'm a nightmare lol.
As for advice on how to get in it, that's a tricky one. There aren't any job sites focused on adult-only jobs. It seems to be a 'who you know' situation I'm afraid. You're in the right location so you have a massive advantage over most of the world.. perhaps demonstrate whatever skill you feel you could bring to the Industry somehow and hand deliver it to some of the big studios with your CV?
CV? What should he put in his CV? Your regular CV but tailor it for the adult industry. If he wants to get into movie production, what experience have you got with this? You need to demonstrate your skills, references, dedication, contact information etc.. somehow..
What exactly is a pornstar model house? Can I be your friend? I am not really that cool and I dont have much to say but I d like to come over your place and hang out. I ll be bringing beer everytime I ll come over. So whats the sex like? How old are you? A house owned by a talent agency that lets to pornstars. I'm 32, sex is sex. My friend requests inbox is full sorry, stupid Facebook :(
I have heard that many porn actors do scenes with the same sex even if they are heterosexual because of various reasons, but i am wondering if you know any actors that do the opposite, do any actors that prefer the same sex do scenes with the opposite scenes? and if yes how common is this? This topic is a bit of a hot potato in the industry, so I won't dwell on it too much. But yes, 'gay for pay' as they say does exist in some form. I've had conversations with pornstar girls about this topic in the past, and we've all roughly agreed that if you're taking a dick up your ass, you're gay.
Perhaps it's simply a case of these sexually confident males wanting to try anything and everything.. or maybe there's a high percentage of bi-sexual male performers.
I wouldn't say it's that common, but I don't really have any facts or figures to base my comments on. I do however know that the pornstar girls don't like it too much if they find out they've been with a guy as well..
Why you son of a-...Wait, in your line of work, that's a good thing. Right? Lol yes yes yes!
I think both you and I made a friend today, didn't we? My first on Reddit :) =P.
Larry, is that you? Doh, how the hell did you work this out? Was it the hustler banners everywhere on my site? #mustbemorediscreet.
How did you get involved in the porn industry? I had a business idea I'm a good net-worker who truly believes in what I'm proposing a lot of the time.
Where to in Wales are you from? Ha, I'm from Bridgend which has got an awful reputation, especially having the highest suicide rate in the UK.
How old are you? so basically these models go in and stay at your place, live in there and then they move out? I'm 32 (although people presume I'm mid 20's). It's not my place, but yes models go there for varying lengths of time. Some are there for just a week or a night, some take out contracts to live there for many months.
Huh. I didn't even see the leisure suit. See when I was young this was the type of stimulation we had available to us! Duke Nukem's awful pixilated bitmap hookers etc...crap Tetris DOS games where you play for an hour to see a naked sex animation background.. and Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball was just a twinkle in our eye lol.
I'm around the same age as you. This was even before my time, but Atari had porn-based games (Porkys was one). I also remember some dirty game on the commodore 64 where it would display some pictures when you put in the correct key combination. Crap wasn't it! Porkys was probably the first film I remember watching with naked girls in.. alone with Nuns in the Run.. how things have changed :)
Congratulations on your endeavours. I can imagine this has been fun, but has it been profitable? This particular project is just a spin-off from a random situation [of me living in a model house] - we have been investing in technology and the product [our websites] more than making money for the last year and a half. Start-ups require a lot of time and dedication it seems :)
Quite the dilemma: You need a chick to get with a chick. Why does this feel like a job hunt? Hehe, actually it's also like that situation where you and your friend want to get into a bar to meet girls, but the bouncer won't let you in because you don't have any girls with you.
Please rank: Jenna Presley, Kortney Kane, Tasha Reign, Samantha Saint and Nicole Aniston. I have only met two of those people - I do the official website for Tasha Reign, she's awesome! She's really really professionally driven and has massive ambition to make it huge in the industry. She's going to go far. Jenna Presley I know on a more personal level, she's part welsh (like me) which is the reason for this pic Link to www.pornmodelhouse.com Funny anecdote about her - I'm British and love tea. When I arrived at the house a long time ago I had a massive box of PG Tips tea. She saw it and was like 'I drink that too! There's a box here!'. I couldn't believe it! To put into perspective how sweet she is, I had tweeted about how I had run out of teabags.. and a day or so later she I was awoken in the middle of the night by Jenna delivering a small box of PG Tips. If that's not a sign of a super sweet person I don't know what is! Generally all the porn stars hang out with their favorite pornstars.. the ones the click with. There are falling outs like in most friendships, but generally industry people hang out with industry people.
Also, do the porn stars hang out with other porn stars or do they all have their own entourage?
Did you meet them before or after their boob job? I've know both for about a year and a half.. It's not something that I pay attention too that much, I'm the weirdo who looks at their eyes when they're talking to me :)
Baconnaise or bacon popcorn? It would have to be Baconnaise - as you can see in this pic, the owner of the house hates the smell of popcorn! Link to www.pornmodelhouse.com
Have you ever met Gianna Michaels? She's my favourite! Hi, sorry no I've never met her.. there are an awful lot of pornstars out there!
DAMN. OK. Let us know when you are and want to try a new career. Is this a not-so-subtle hint to stop writing? lol.
No. I wasn't referring to this IAMA. Just a joke about, you know, leaving your job vacant for someone else. Nevermind. Sadly I don't have a job, just ambition. Other wise I'd get paid for my efforts on a daily basis.. starting your own company is a lot of hard work and blood sweat and tears for years.
Given enough skill i can take your account and trace it back to your ip address to the house where you live. Well the same can be done for websites and given this is a UN resolution you are only safe in Iran Cuba and North Korea. We can do this we have the technology. I agree with what you're saying, but for those that missed out on the whole PornWikileaks saga (Link to gawker.com something's not right. That website was detailing people's real names, photos of their children, accusing them of having aids and being rapists.. every bad thing under the sun.. yet still nobody shut it down until a bunch of porn peeps took them on.
This is the first post that I've read every comment. I must be doing something right then ! :)
