(no subject)

I wonder if anyone ever does drugs at a Christian rock concert. I can just see somebody dropping a couple of tabs and blissing out to Amy Grant.

I am thoroughly enamored of Cowboy Bebop. And I've been able to decipher yet another line of the Samurai Jack theme.

And I've discovered that if I keep my feet warm, I feel warmer.

The Amazing HypnoButt­™

Apparently, my butt has super powers.

Under certain circumstances, rubbing my butt apparently has the power to render the one doing the rubbing sleepy. There are specific circumstances: the rub-er must already be trying to sleep and can't, and there should be a level of horizontality involved.

I haven't really done a scientific double-blind kind of test or anything, but the statistical evidence is showing a definite trend. I probably need a larger sampling from different women to really test the theory.

Note that this is not a thinly veiled attempt to get my butt rubbed.

Becoming a porn producer

Last night I watched an ABC Primetime special where they followed a couple of women through their careers in the porno industry. I was kind of amazed that even some of the high-end porno productions were done using equipment that isn't any better than mine. I was also amazed at how little the performers were paid (less than $1000 per movie for straight sex), so I started thinking about whether or not I'd want to become a porn producer.

It's not the first time. I've been asked before whether or not I'd consider it, and the answer is yes, I'd consider it. I've even researched things like distribution (I have a friend who works at an adult video distribution company) and where to find talent (and yes, it's out there). I haven't gone as far as checking into the legal issues, as that pretty much means paying money for an entertainment attorney to do research, and I'm not so interested that I'm wanting to put money into it yet.

And I could certainly treat the performers better than what I saw on the special. For one, I would require the use of condoms and regular checkups, and would stay away from some of the more dangerous and abusive styles.

So I have to wonder. I'm looking for a way of producing income, I have the equipment and resources, so I have to consider it.

First, it's a business. I don't have a great head for business, but I can work up a business plan. Probably not something that would take on investors, so I'd probably have to fund the productions myself.

So yeah, I could do it. But should I?

Thing is that I look at production as an art. I want to take the time to do things like lighting and sound and story content, all of which are kind of antithetical to the porn industry. And I'm far too much of a soft touch, and would probably get trampled by the hardened women of porn. :)

So for now, I think not.

But I keep it in the back of my mind.
