How I Got Started in Porn

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
In case you don't know, and before you get all excited (or grossed-out), I don't mean that I'm in porn -- I've worked (and continue to work) in the porn industry. I'm a porn web designer. I've designed 1000s of websites in my life, and 100s of them have been porn. I've worked for niche fetish companies. I've worked for Vivid (where I got to design Vivid.com back in '05). I've been ...

My Afternoon in College

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
I've always been amused with the phrase "giving it the ol' college try". I don't even really know what it means, or if a "college try" is an actual thing. I've always taken it to mean "try your best and don't worry too much", but I'm probably wrong. If it's specific to the person, as in "treat this as you did with your days in college", then anyone giving me that ...

Videogames As Sport

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 9 minutes
I played a lot of videogames growing up, across many systems. My first system was the Commodore 64, onto which I actually programmed some of my own videogames. There were a few games on there that I thought I was really good at, based on playing friends of mine. But we had a paper boy who also had the same games on his Commodore 64 and he whooped my ass ...

My First Real Adult Human Person Job

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
It's a funny thing when you reach adulthood and you find out how many lies you were told throughout your life. They're mostly innocuous "white lies". Things adults will say to keep you in line and out of trouble, and with hopes that you'll make something of your life. That's all adults who give a shit about your life ever want -- a good life for you, and not having ...

Tina : The Pimp of Alt Porn

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
This is part of a series of posts about an internet-based live TV talk show I created/hosted called Aural Salvation. Reading about the origin of the show isn't required, but it might help give you some context. It would also help to know that I built up a large, enthusiastic audience by interviewing naked alt-porn girls, and a MySpace celebrity gone actual-celebrity. Since I already had a weekly drop-in to ...

How I Met The GodsGirls

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 5 minutes
Continuing in a series of posts about Aural Salvation (I'll be doing one more post tomorrow, then getting into other stories before I return to these), in October 2005 I had found out about an upcoming little alt-porn site called GodsGirls.com that was getting flack from the Suicide Girls website. I found this out because, in the MySpace days, you'd see hot chicks promoting all kinds of weird shit on ...

3 Days of Awkward Interviews

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 6 minutes
In the first few weeks (maybe 2 months, actually) of Aural Salvation, I had to fulfill the interview obligations of my former co-host : Crazy J. Since I'd taken over his time slot and was, ostensibly, covering the same genre of music, bands who'd been expecting an interview with the station -- MusicPlusTV.com -- for whom I was hosting a show. I've known, and encountered, quite a few people in my life who ...

The Inception of Aural Salvation

There are some stories that, if I broke them up into serial stories, would end up being 20+ parts long. That's just silly. So, I'm doing some stories as sub-sets of other stories. This is one such story. Some people who read this blog, and who have patiently (and sometimes inexplicably) followed my "career" for many years, may remember a little internet-based TV show I used to write/host called Aural ...

The Legend of Denny’s, Ireland, and Scotland

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 7 minutes
In my Sophomore year of high school, I was the first amongst my close group of friends to get a driver's license, and -- more importantly -- the first whose mom would actually lend out the car to them. Early on, I'd just pick up Nad and a few other friends, and we'd drive around throughout the early evening Phoenix streets with no particular place to go. Just ...

A Nazi Misunderstanding

Filed Under : General Stories  |  Est. Reading Time : 5 minutes
In the summer between 7th and 8th grade, Bill had moved away, Ian and I didn't really hang out, and Pam was busy with some older man. I was bored and looking for friends. I found one near my house, while skating around and he was doing the same. Let's call him Jed . Jed was a country-boy redneck type. His house was filled with crosses and American flags ...
