Some porn sets are creepy like the old meat packing plant, and some are uncomfortable like the mansions that won’t allow people to sit on the furniture, but some are happy and welcoming and feel like home. My new “best friend,” Tall Goddess had chosen a feels-like-home set to shoot her new movie The Catalyst with Ninn Worx. It was a loft/studio in downtown Los Angeles. Anais had shot part of Inside Myself there, and I had loved it then. The owner is very porn-friendly, has all sorts of interesting collectibles sitting around, and has a cute, shy puppy named “Aussie.” What more could you ask for? [Well, the NFL package comes to mind, but maybe that’s just because it’s Draft Day. Oh, and presumably this would be Aussie. (We’ve warned you previously about the weirdness of these photographs.)]
I’ve only recently met “TG” (Lorainne Sisco) but it feels as though we’ve been friends for years. She’s not only gorgeous, but she’s smart, extremely talented, very sweet, and beyond hot! Besides, she likes me, too! [For those of you that don’t know her that last part of the sentence really affects D.Minion’s views of the first parts of the sentence. It’s one of her many, many quirks. D.Minion has never had a friend that was not “smart, extremely talented, very sweet, and beyond hot.” She’s apparently been very fortunate.]
I’d been in Los Angeles for the XRCO Awards the previous evening, so had spent the night in L.A., and was ready to roll at 6:30 am. Lucky, Michael Ninn, and I arrived on set as Tall Goddess and her crew were loading in the extremely well-organized supplies, wardrobe, and props for the shoot. And I mean EXTREMELY well-organized. Note the labeled boxes and bags. I especially liked the Backup Shoes for Kimberly! (ALL women need backup shoes, you know! Just in case!) [Let’s just do a few of these en masse, shall we? You can look at them if you want to that way. We call these “of journalistic merit” around the office, which basically means there aren’t any naked women in them.]
As TG and crew were getting ready (and the caterer began cooking breakfast), I wandered around the loft snapping photos of whatever I thought looked interesting. I fell in love with this old switchboard and decided I needed one just like it for my house. [And] This is the desk where Anais had her scene with Scott Styles in Inside Myself.
Upstairs, the crew was getting ready for the first scene – on the roof. TG had brought a funky green chair from her house, and two crew members were trying to fulfill her artistic vision, by carrying the rather heavy and very bulky chair up to the rooftop. They got it to the top of the stairs just fine, but getting it through the door was another story. No matter how they twisted and turned, the chair would not fit through the opening. I suggested lube, but was ignored. (Hee, hee, hee.) [It took some time, but many of us have finally figured out the optimum way of dealing with DM on some occasions.]
A better suggestion (and one that did not come from me) was to take the door off its hinges. They did and the chair slipped through with millimeters to spare. Who knew shooting porn was so difficult? [Anyone who’s ever been on a set, DM. Anyone who’s ever been on a set ….]
