What a week

I'd like to be all happy and positive about the week long work trip to Palm Springs that is just coming to an end.... but I can't. It kinda sucked. Right now Leo Forte, Van Darkholme and I are still stuck at the Palm Springs airport trying to get back to San Francisco. Our flight was scheduled for 10:00am and it's now 6:30pm. Hopefully we will take off by 8 or 9pm. Hopefully. I just want to go home, crawl into bed and get some sleep before I have to get up and shoot another Bound in Public tomorrow morning. Ugh.

So what was so bad? The weather for one thing. It was cold and rainy the whole time. Not so much fun when you are naked and shooting outside by a pool, or underwater, or outside at night. It sucked. And there was WAY TOO MUCH DRAMA!!! Every shoot seemed to be one non-stop drama fest with diva bitch sessions, model's breakdowns and hissy fits. EVERYBODY JUST FUCKING CHILL! We're making porn... not saving the fucking world. Look pretty for the camera, get your cock hard, and fuck. Is that really so hard? I mean I'm very proud of the work we do and our product is probably the best content out their but does there have to be psychological drama and warfare attached to it? And if you do feel the need to lose your mind can you at least wait until after the shoot and save everyone else from having to suffer through it. And if you feel the need to show just how much better you are than everyone else alive on the planet do you think you could save it for when you are visiting Fantasyland at the Disney Park cause, really, it's just a fantasy. Again, it's porn... not brain surgery.

The Helios resort was really awesome and they had a great playroom and other outside play areas, but unfortunately we were the only ones staying there this week. That sucked as well. The owners and staff of Helios were so sweet and attentive. A big THANK YOU goes out to them from me!!!

We were supposed to have the last day off to have some fun time including a trip to Joshua Tree which really excited me. Instead we went to the casino, ate the buffet there and watched people gamble. Ugh. By the time we got out of there we headed to the tram that takes you up to the top of the mountain, but it was already dark and freezing. So we rode up in the dark and got to the top to find it windy, freezing and raining. We did get to hang out in the lounge area and played Yahtzee for a while, next to a life sized stuffed ram with the biggest balls I've ever seen, before we headed back down the mountain, in the dark, and then headed for a good dinner at The Blue Pear restaurant.

Of course there were some awesome moments mixed in with the shitty ones. Daddy Zeus showed up for one of our Bound in Public shoots and took over the shoot for about an hour, working over the sub, Leo Forte. It's amazing what a true master can do. Everything and everyone around him just followed his lead and what came of it was probably the most powerful piece of BDSM play ever captured on film. I'm not kidding. The crew and models were talking about it for days. Everyone felt like they had to be at their absolute best to capture the "moment" that was happening. To document it for others to see. It was that important. There was no shouting orders, no verbal insults, no threats or harsh physical treatment. Just calm and confident leadership. Again, it's amazing how much respect and control Daddy Zeus gained from everyone around him. And he deserved it. I feel truly blessed to have been in his presence and I wish every shoot could be that controlled and that powerful.

Another great thing was the awesome models that worked together all week. Gianni Luca, Spencer Reed, Matthew Singer, Trent Diesel, Paul Wagner, Christian Wilde, Scott Tanner, Cole Streets and Leo Forte. What a diverse group of HOT men.

Here are some photos from the week. Let me know if you can't figure out just who is who. I can't wait to click the "Publish" button for this post and have it disappear from the screen. I really don't want to think about this week again.

Yep- the weather in SoCal sucked all week! In LA where I am we got over 8" - probably closer to 10" of rain if you wanna know the truth. This in a region that normally gets a little over a foot of rain a year!

Well, now you've got a good reason to come back again when the weather's good - right?

Have a great Christmas!
