The other week, Tod Hunter, at tod-hunter.net, and I were having a conversation on Twitter about the lack of stories in the industry to write about. By conversation, I mean I did all my usual rambling while Tod only made two tweets. By stories, I mean scandal, dirt, and gossip. You heartless bastards keep it all to yourselves!!
You’re a part of Hollywood but you do everything possible to keep your lives a secret. The biggest nobodies in Hollywood get more publicity & attention than the biggest names in this industry. Study them, watch them, and learn from them if you want to make the most of your time in this industry.
There is still a certain contract girl with no social networks that I can find. She & the company don’t have the sense to have gotten her name signed up before the announcement that she’s their new contract girl. No one knows who she is even with the recent release of her debut movie. She’s not even appearing with the company’s other contract girls at their recent appearances. I’m not even in this industry and have no background in advertising. But I look around in amazement at all the lost opportunities that so many porn stars have. Many of you don’t stay in the industry for that long a time. So you should take advantage of every opportunity. Make as much money as you can now so you’ll have something to show for all your work when you leave here.
Tod Hunter: I’m beginning to think I’m not writing about porn enough. I saw Nina Hartley last night, that oughta count for something…
Me: If only there were enough stories out there to write & talk about in porn. But many there as you know keep many things private.
This isn’t mainstream Hollywood where a celeb AND their publicist leaks stories to the press to gossip about.
Then there are the people who tell me things but then say not to tell anyone. *bangs head*
Tod Hunter: TELL me about it. I have a GREAT story from a set that I’ll be able to use sooner or later.
Me: Sometimes it can go for weeks without anything interesting here to write about.
You would think for a multi-billion dollar industry, that there would be more to write about.
And with Hollywood, they feed the mainstream celebrity blogs a lot of information and pictures. Why not in porn too???
Almost put out a plea for content like personal blogs & tweets. But declined fearing I would have to post everything sent in.
I don’t want to be rude and decline telling them it’s not interesting enough.
