XXX PARODIES GIVE NEW LIFE TO STIFF PORN AT AVN CONVENTION!

Avn awardTHE AVN AWARDS SHOW comes up January 18th in Las Vegas Nevada, climaxing the 2014 AVN Convention.

While I may be on-site for the media forplay, I must return to my true crime roots the 18th to be live on the air with Darren Kavinoky and Howard Lapides on TRUE CRIME UNCENSORED, and appear with Darren on DEADLY SINS the evening of the 18th.

What's my connection to the Adult industry?  I have friends who have worked in it, both behind the camera and in front of it — remember that Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather films) got his start in XXX films, as did many other famed directors.  I was slated to direct a film for Joanna Storm back in the 1980's but the project evaporated.  

There are some new and suprising categories at the AVN AWARDS….at least ones most people wouldn't anticipate, such as "Best Comedy" — even the Oscars have not realized the importance of comedy, and how difficult it is to do comedy well.

In truth, comedy and parody have returned to XXX proeductions in a big way.  A few decades ago, two things converged in the world of "Adult" films — the market expanded as couples became the #1 consumers of XXX videos, and "dull and boring" compilations of endless plumbing footage with often cinematically unhappy endings flooded the market procliamed "FOUR HOURS OF (whatever)"

Gone were the burlesque inspired (or insipid) attempts at comedy and self-mockery that made DEEP THROAT a stand-out, or the honest-to-God acting of a mature thespian such as Georgina Spelvin in THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES.  

The potential for incredible quality at reduced production costs, thanks to vfdeo vs film, was always there, but it would take risk-taking clever visionaries to move XXX into the worlds of song, dance and pop culture parody not seen on big or small screen in decades.

NOT THE COSBYS knocked the XXX crowd's socks off, and soon the industry was off on a new tangent.

THE ROCKY WHORE PICTURE SHOW == a true musical comedy porn picture required auditions that went beyond oral skills to include singing and dancing skills!    

BATMAN, MAN OF STEEL, THE LONE RANGER, SPIDERMAN, and even LEAVING LAS VEGAS have had porn parodies produced, and many of them are up for awards at this years AVN AWARDS SHOW in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

So, I may spend a day or two at the Convention, rekindling old friendships with filmmakers and former performers who get on the red carpet to stroll down memory lane.
