How Rock N Roll Came To Russia

I was reading and I came across this fascinating bit of rock n roll history first ya might wanna give a listen to these couple of minutes of the Elvis Presley Song “Heartbreak Hotel” I’m sure you know the song and I’m sure you will listen to it and think WOW That’s what they had to listen to?

That recording was made onto a discarded X Ray and its quality is quite good considering how it was done.

Now here is the story behind that and other recordings. And it all happened in my lifetime.

Long before cassettes, computers, recordable CDs, and Bit Torrents, sharing music with your friends wasn’t easy. This was particularly true of the Soviet Union in the 1950s and 1960s, where citizens were forbidden to even own entire categories of music, specially jazz, rock and roll and rhythm and blues. There was only one record company, Melodiya, and being state owned it echoed government policy towards music. “Musicians such as these, who have plunged to the depth of musical decline, do not deserve a place on Soviet records.”

One thing you can count on, where there is a demand for something, and a chance to make a profit, there will be a way.

Outside Russia, it was possible to buy or rent a portable record cutting machine, a heavy suit case sized device that would cut a custom recording on a record blank. These machines became pretty popular during World War II, when soldiers separated from their families could send and receive disks as talking letters, but could also make personal recordings so they could hear themselves (usually for the first time) talking, telling jokes and singing.

An old Vinyl disk recorder.

An old Vinyl disk recorder.

Needless to say these record cutting machines were not available in the Russia, where even typewriters were difficult to come by. Both were seen as a way of spreading unauthorized personal and political expression, an unwelcome activity in a police state. but the something happened that briefly opened up the Russian borders and brought some of the outside world to its citizenry: World War II. Germany attacked Russia.  When the Red Army and the Russian Winter battled the Nazis to a standstill, Germany eventually pulled back.  The Red Army pushed forward pushing the Germans back into their own border and using the opportunity to occupy and seize eastern Europe.  Suddenly Russian farmboys were being exposed to the alluring temptations of big cities like Krakow, Prague, Zagreb and Berlin.  They weren’t exactly London, Paris and New York City but to a Russian they may as well have been:  Things like stylish clothes and other consumer goods. So were exciting new kinds of forbidden music from the West, like Big Band, Jazz and R & B.

Pretty soon, musical recordings were being smuggled into Russia hidden in soldier’s gear, to be played on home phonographs…quietly so the neighbors wouldn’t turn them into the secret police. Some of the more enterprising soldiers returned with more dangerous and outrageous contraband: The recording machines they bought (or took as spoils of war) from the local population.

But there was a problem: The machines required a blank disk for every record made. Once their initial supply ran out the Russians were out of luck. The blank disks weren’t available in Russia, threatening to make the machines useless. But Russians were used to shortagesof almost everything and they got good at converting whatever they could scrounge into what they needed. They focused their efforts into finding something cheap and plentiful that might be useable as a recording medium.

It had to be soft enough to accept a cut from a vibrating needle. After experimenting with foils, glossy cardboards, sheet metal, and who knows what else. Someone finally found a solution, in hospital trash bins.

Nobody knows who first came up with the idea that a discarded X Ray might make a good record, they were certainly plentiful, hospitals discarded them regularly so people could pick them up for free or buy them from others who did for just a few kopecs.

These used plastic sheets, though flexible were thick enough and firm enough to hold the etchings of the recording machine.  The sound wasn’t great and the tended to warp and didn’t last a long time but they were cheap and better than the alternative, which was no music at all.

The records became known as “Bone Rock” or “Rib Rock” they first required cutting the sheets into circles with a hole at the center long before Heavy Metal and Goth made skulls and bones a staple of rock imagery Russian rock fans were buying one sided recordings of John Coltrane, Elvis, Buddy Holly and The Platters decorated with X-Rays of skulls, ribs, hips and bones usually selected and centered for the best visual presentation.

The relatively few voice recording machines looted during the war weren’t enough to keep up with the demand for bootleg music.  the loose network of record makers known as Roentgenizdat labouriously made an estimated 3 million records, one at a time, during the 1950’s and 1960’s. According to accounts from Russians photograph salons got in on the act too, buying machines to cut “audio postcards” for customers then using them at night to copy records.  Black marketers also figured out that they could turn two phonographs into a duplicating  machine by playing a record on one and routing the audio into the other with a heavy arm adapted to scratch the vibrations into the blank.

A huge underground market developed. Records generally came marked with a cryptic number, but no names of songs or artists, which helped avoid incrimination if discovered by the authorities. The music was pretty much whatever the bootleggers could get their hands on.

One reliable source of contraband records was Finnish and Swedish sailors, who were allowed to dock at the ports of Lenningrad and Riga. Popular in the 1950’s were Little Richard,  and Bill Haley and the Comets from the USA and British acts like Tommy Steele and Johnny and the Hurricanes.  In the 60’s it was the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Motown.

In addition to being what the people wanted the records were also cheap.  An official disk from the state record company cost 5 rubles, a weeks worth of lunches for the average working man in Russia. A “Rib Rock” recording cost only one ruble, the equivalent of skipping a single lunch.

It took the a while but finally the authorities got fed up and cracked down. First they put out their own Rib Rock recording that would start like the music then launch into a tirade about the listener being anti-Russian. In 1958 it became illegal to even own a “Rib Record”, producers and sellers were arrested and sent to work camps.  People continued to listen to the records though because they felt like it was worth the risk.

In the early 1970’s “Rib Records” started becoming obsolete, as the rest of the world began discovering “cassettes”.   The Soviet Union went a different direction and reel to reel recorders began being available in record stores.  The sound quality was far better and it was easier to make copies for friends, additionally they could record shortwave radio broadcasts from Radio Luxembourg and other Western sources that were no longer being “jammed” by Soviet Authorities.

X Ray records are an interesting bit of Rock N Roll History that no doubt is very similar to the history of porn here in the USA.  Again as with prohibition, the War on Drugs, and countless other policies the bottom line is that if people want it, they will get it.  A market will emerge to supply it and the government will sooner or later have to accept that the people want it and will get it.

It’s hard to believe that in this day and age of modern technology and advanced understanding of human nature and sociology we still don’t get it.

Ok that’s it for the educational part of our programming…..hope y’all found this as interesting as I did.

 

 

Max Hardcore Bankruptcy Filings

One thing that came out of the Bonnie Rotten suit is that Max Hardcore has multiple bankruptcy filings. They may all be related to one bankruptcy but the appear to be at least 2 different ones. Either way he only rivals Jeffrey Douglas in the amount Max is over 1 million dollars. Interestingly one of Max’s creditors is…TADA! Jeffrey Douglas!

Bonnie Rotten v Max Hardcore the Plot Thickens

Ok this ones weird to me.  Theres an interview done right after her shoot with Max at xcritic  she praises her scene with max saying it was fun and that she is into “Consensual  rape”

So whats with the lawsuit? What does she hope to get in an Illinois County Court? One thing I know about Max is that he is very meticulous about his record keeping. He has the model release.

Well it seems there are also two filings in Los Angeles Superior Court One with Max as the Petitioner as a general title case and one with Bonnie as the petitioner as a civil harassment case

Porn stars set to face off in Chicago court over defamation suit stemming from release of scene

A California woman who works in the adult film industry under the stage name “Bonnie Rotten” is suing a fellow porn star, claiming video stills and a scene they shot together was made available to the public without her consent.

Alaina Hicks filed a lawsuit May 7 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Paul F. Little, Film West Production and Maxhardcoretv.com, alleging appropriation of her identity, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The suit claims the defendants posted a scene and still photos from an adult movie filmed in 2012 between Hicks and Little, who performs under the stage name “Max Hardcore,” without her permission.

Little, according to the suit, is a California resident who runs an internet video service and for-pay website that distributes videos produced by him and Film West Production on its website Maxhardcoretv.com. The suit claims he sentenced to prison on obscenity charges in 2008 in Florida and is frequently depicted in his films degrading women.

Hicks alleges that in July 2013, Little used his “MaxHardCore100? Twitter account to post links to a website where people could purchase the scene between the two of them and still photos from the movie. She also accuses him of making defamatory comments about her on Twitter and under each still picture on his website.

In addition to being available to paying members of certain adult movie websites and to those who purchased a DVD, Hicks claims non-paying viewers, including those in Illinois, were able to see the still photos and scene of her and Little.

She claims the scene was filmed even though she didn’t sign a model release agreement and never gave the defendants permission “to distribute, market or post on the internet for public viewing any depiction of her name, likeliness, photograph, image or voice.”

The suit alleges that anyone who conducted an internet search of her and Little’s stages names had access to the scene between July 13 and July 15, 2012. It also notes that as of May 6,  still photos and animated GIFs of the scene are still on the internet.

Hicks asserts the photos, scene and Little’s comments have damaged her character, reputation and career, which the suit notes includes being dubbed the 2014 Adult Video News female performer of the year.

In her intentional infliction of emotional distress count, Hicks states she was under the age of 21 and had not yet performed in film at the time she shot the scene with Little. She claims the defendants should have known the release of the scene would cause her “to become distressed.”

Each of Hicks’ three counts seeks $50,000 in damages. She also asked for punitive damages, attorney’s fees, costs and any profits the defendants made from their use of her identity, as well as injunction preventing them from marketing, using or seeking commercial use of her identity under the Right of Publicity Act.

Electronic court records show a judge allowed an injunction on May 23 and then denied an injunction on May 29. It also appears the court set a June 12 deadline to amend the complaint and a July 15 hearing in the matter.

Hicks is being represented by Chicago attorney Karl E. Hunsicker of Law Offices of Karl E. Hunsicker. Records do not list an attorney for the defendants.

Bonnie Rotten Sues Max Hardcore

I picked this up from courthouse news:

LOS ANGELES (CN) – A pornographic actor and filmmaker asked a judge to weigh in on a dispute over image rights to an actress who he claims agreed to perform in one of his films.
Paul Little aka Max Hardcore sued actress Alaina Hicks, 21, who performs under the name Bonnie Rotten, in Superior Court.
Little claims the actress is trying to repudiate a January 2012 artists agreement that gave him permission to use her performance in an adult film he acted in and produced.
Little claims that Hicks received a “substantial benefit” from appearing in his film, “Fuck Puppets 2.”
“Hicks without justification, breached the agreement by repudiating the contract and demanded that plaintiff Little cease and desist from using her performance in the adult film that plaintiff Little produced,” the complaint states.
Though Hicks continues to exploit her performance in the movie, she sued Little in Cook County, Illinois for appropriation of identity and defamation, claiming she never gave Little permission to use her performance in the film, Little says.
In that lawsuit, obtained from the Courthouse News Service database, Hicks claims that Little tweeted images and links to a scene in the porn flick, along with several comments, including: “‘I partied with Bonnie Rotten before she got into the business.'”
“Videos produced by and featuring defendant Little, who performs under the stage name Max Hardcore frequently depict forced sex, degrading language and vomiting and urination,” the Cook County lawsuit says.
In the Cook County filing, Hick says that Little was convicted in Florida on obscenity charges in 2008 and says that the scene in which she appears contained “numerous examples” of degrading and humiliating conduct.
But in his July 3 complaint, Little says: “Defendant Hicks brought her action in a state court in the State of Illinois despite the fact the agreement that she signed was entered into in California, her performance that was required under the contract was in California and she identified herself in the complaint filed in state court in Illinois as a resident of the State of California.”
Little wants a judge to find the agreement is binding, plus damages and costs.
He is represented by Keith Rouse of Pasadena.
Hicks’ attorney Karl Hunsicker called Little’s filing “nothing more than retaliation,” adding that his client had been forced to take legal action after Little “refused to sign an agreement reached by both parties in July of 2013.”
“To date, neither myself nor my client have seen the purported model release alluded to in Mr. Little’s lawsuit despite repeated requests,” Hunsicker said in an email.

I’d Sure Like To See An Audit of The FSC

I’d love to know exactly how much they actually spend on administrative overhead and such.  And I would really love to know how much was spent on attorneys defending Diane Duke various charges….I’m hearing in the last few years they spent more mony on that one thing than everything else put together after overhead….

Are you guys EVER going to wake up and clean up this cesspool?

Do You Know How Hard You Just Hit The FSC? – Reader Mail

I got this from an industry attorney, I rewrote it in my own words.

Whether you realize it or not you landed a hard blow to The Free Speech Coalition.  If what you say is true, and I have no reason to believe it isn’t , then The Board of Directors has to launch an immediate investigation as not doing so opens them up to massive legal problems.  Before you exposed the relationship the board could simply maintain that they had no idea and potentially shield themselves from liability, particularly if there is moral or legal wrongdoing on the part of Ms Duke as well.

Now they can’t make that claim and the truth is at least  one of the two would certainly have to go, preferably by resignation.

You opened a big can of worms my friend, a really big one, they may be quiet right now but if they aren’t addressing this they are committing suicide.

 

Jeffery Douglas IS Diane Dukes Boss My Bad

Douglass was doing this one too

I had a couple of FSC members notify me yesterday that while Diane Duke is the face of the FSC Jeffery is the chairman and he is her boss and he can let her go,  she does approve his billing.  This sets the stage for an even bigger problem for The FSC because the male is in the supervisory capacity. Any organisation on earth would, at this point relieve Douglas of his duties, but not The FSC….Now what does that tell you about them?  Corruption is top down people, its no wonder Diane is corrupt.

AND this isn’t the first time…remember Kat Sunlove?  Yep Douglas was dipping his wick in that Executive Director too, so really The FSC is nothing but a sexual playground for Jeffery Douglas,  remember that next time you give em money…

 

Jeffrey Douglas and Diane Duke Are Having an Affair, According to Eyewitnesses

Theres a Visual I could lived without...these two screwing....while screwing FSC contributors apparently.

Theres a Visual I could lived without…these two screwing….while screwing FSC contributors apparently.

 

This story got sidelined by the HIV Positive performer last week but it deserves to be read.  It shows exactly the kind of person Diane Duke is, Jeffery Douglas too.  if they will fuck over the people they married do you think for one minute they wont fuck you over?  Not to mention Diane is in a supervisory capacity over jeff and approves his expenses billed to The FSC….and yes this is the same Jeffery Douglas that represented Walter Lee Williams who was sex trafficking undereage boys

story here

Now while I agree everyone deserves a competent defense it does seem a bit of a conflict that someone associated with The FSC would represent one of the FBIs 500 most wanted…for sex trafficking in children as young as 9 years old

Although you could also say these two scumbags deserve each other…

OK I have been alluding to this for a while, it came across my radar about a month ago but something like this is very difficult to run down specially when you are protecting a source or sources.

Under normal circumstances I dont much care who is fucking around with whom, I mean this is porn everyone fucks everyone in one way or another, but in this case it is entirely inappropriate, not so much because Douglas and Duke are both married (Diane to a female) but because They are both on the board of The Free Speech Coalition and Jeffrey bills Diane for “services rendered” and Diane pays him.

It first got my attention when it jumped from just rumor mill stuff to someone who could verify it for sure.  That someone has an affiliation with Sanctuary LAX.  Sanctuary LAX is a BDSM club owned by…guess who….Kink and Peter Acworth.  My source verified that Sanctuary LAX was the hook up spot for Douglas and Diane.  Apparently they “weren’t being as discreet as they thought they were.”

I have verified that Dianes wife does in fact know and that Douglas may have been confronted by her, that part is more rumor but it does fit.

It also explains why Douglas has been kept around.  Interestingly enough I have a pretty good bit of evidence that Diane isn’t the first Director of The FSC that Douglas has been screwing around with, apparently he has a long history of it.

When I posted that I didn’t understand why The FSC kept him around I got a lot of emails explaining it and they mostly all said the same thing.

So once again here we have evidence that shows that The Free Speech coalition is corrupt to it’s very core.  The money people give to them has sent Douglas and Duke on quite a few romantic getaways under the guise of business.  At what point will the people who fund the FSC say enough is enough and clean house over there?

 

A Major Flaw In The Testing System

The adult industry testing program is a Harm Reduction program. That means you simply accept that participants in the program are putting themselves and their partners at risk, and they are taking minimal to no precautions to avoid those risks.

Contrary to what you might read, you don’t get tested before you’re allowed to work. You get tested after you work, to see if you caught anything, and are then removed from the pool of workers. This was the basis for the ‘gentlemens agreement’ of performers when AIM was first established. After working for 30 days you come in and get tested. If you’re clean its back to work, if not, you get medicated, retest, and then back to work.

But one part of this particular Harm Reduction program is severely broken. When this program in the straight porn industry was established a major component of the program was the seperation between the gay and straight industry. That seperation no longer exists, as the recent press release from APAC has confirmed. The risk level of straight industry performers is ill served by the current system, where agents and producers knowingly hire males that are also performing in gay productions.

A perfect example of this is Derrik Burts. I use Derrik as an example not to bash him, but to show that this could have been anyone in his shoes. When Derrik was infected he gave a list on names of his industry sexual partners to AIM. That list included performers in the gay and straight industries. Two of Deriks gay industry contacts were contacted by AIM. They both told AIM that they don’t need to come in and test, they had both been HIV+ for more than two years. The agents who booked them, and the producers that hired them were fully aware of this. Then that same agent went and booked Derrik for straight industry shoots.

Again, as APAC has stated, there is no more seperation of the industries, and without this major component of the Harm Reduction program not being honored any longer renders the entire program much less effective. EVERYBODY in the porn industry is at the same risk level as the riskiest peron in the pool. Ladies, think about that next time you’re shooting a scene with a guy who did 3 gay industry gigs in the last week, and you’re being told that his two week old test says its ok.

Lets Talk About Christy Mack

As you all know War Machine had 24 charges added against him this week including attempted murder. he sits in jail with no bond (and rightly so)

A fund to cover Christys expenses has now almost reached its goal of 100 thousand dollars, even though Christy has insurance and almost 100 percent of her hospitalization will be covered by that insurance and the rest is eligible to be paid by the state of NV.  Christy even announced that she would donate any extra to charity, a good move on her part for multiple reasons.

However you may feel about Christy Mack it is nice that people got together in her time of need but I have to ask, and so should you, where were these people for Cameron Bay? Sophia DelGado? Darren James? Rod Daily? Derrick Burts….you get the picture.

Why no outpouring of love and empathy for them?  The brutal nature of her attack?  Death is pretty brutal anyway you look at it.  The circumstances?  There are a lot of questions about why Corey didn’t immediately call the police and why was he there to begin with Christy was less than forthright in her statements to the press but she has that right I suppose.  What is it that makes her circumstances worth 100,000 in sympathetic gestures that she really doesnt need and will donate to charity but say Cameron Bay certainly needed to stay alive, fortunately for her AHF stepped in.

It’s a good question, I don’t have an answer, if you think you do I’d love to hear it.

Folks Can Now decide For Themselves

I have gotten emails from almost a record number of people about this topic, from Mark Schecter to Kevin ONeal, producers, Directors, Performers, Fans  seems everyone has something to say about this topic. (but they didnt wanna say it in comments.)

The interesting thing to me is that it seems to split 50/50  half the people mostly fans and performers hate the agencies (looks  like a great place for APAC to have some impact, but dont hold your breath)  The other half are mostly supportive, including producer directors who have  fewer talent problems with agencies.

In the end its pretty much all been aired and those who want to can decide for themselves.

Moving on.

A Few Points From LATATA

I got an email today pointing out the following:

 

ATMLA is the ONLY agency that charges drivers fees  In every other LATATA agency that is included in the agents percentage (15%)

ATMLA is the only LATATA agency that is not charging the 20 dollar premium for 14 day tests and passing it on to talent to help cover the cost of testing
