They generally announce the Wed before Thanksgiving at Noon PST.
It used to be a much bigger deal than it is now.
One of the highlights of my blogging career came in 2008 when I looked at the AVAwards site and looked at the URL for the previous years nominations (2008)
I used the same naming conventions to see [...]
Theo at AVN called to notify me that AVN has no affiliation with Jenna Jameson at all and that she will NOT be a keynote speaker at Adult Expo (Thank God). I got that completely wrong..My Bad! She is the Hostess of the XBiz Awards, and Id say the rest still stands
My humblest apologies to Theo [...]
Mark Kernes over at AVN wrote an article about the new changes to Cal-OSHAs rules and regulations for adult companies. because he doesn’t have the great sources that I do he couldn’t find these rules and regulations online and he had to source me.
That hurt him SO badly to have to source me he actually insinuated [...]
It’s the season again….
We have LOTS of porn awards shows, too many really. Way too many. Most are about shameless promotion, vote for your favorite blah blah blah. All are rigged and the truth is if you have seen one of them you have seen all of them. The same stuff gets nominated in pretty much [...]
Someone splain to me will ya?
yesterday i ran a statement from Assemblyman Isadore Hall on this blog. AVN ignored it, XBiz ignored it. But They both ran a rebuttal to it. tell me Helmy, how exactly do you run Diane Dukes rebuttal to a statement you never ran? Maybe it’s because you didn’t get it? Most [...]
According to Kernes latest poorly researched screed over on AVN AIM was shut down because of two lawsuits, one by AHF and one by CalOSHA. As usual Mark Kernes is either lying to you or he is just plain ignorant.
According to the official Bankruptcy papers for AIM, both the original AIM, and AIM P.C.
AIM total debt, [...]
The FSC accused me of being an opportunist but who is the real opportunist here? The FSC was intentionally left OUT of this potential outbreak because of the abysmal way that they have handled them in the past. So much so that the retesting was not done by CET, who are in the FSC’s pocket.
So the [...]
And in doing so verified even more of my story.
Shy Love contacted AVN after this story was posted and reported that the scene was shot June 12, 2012 and appeared on TrinityStClair.com July 1, 2012. She also stated the following: [note: this is EXACTLY as I reported it]
they added the following statement from Shy Love:
“ATM has [...]
The clowns at AVN ran a so called “exclusive” piece today where they essentially rewrote my Nanula stories with a couple of changes, changes made to make Ms. Saint look completely ignorant. Of course they didn’t mention that they got it from me, or that I had it spot on right. They just get scummier everyday [...]
Obviously I scooped them pretty good with the Story about Alan Gelbard Threatening LA Direct. They have ignored the story and I expect most of you know why, had the story been given to them in the form of a press release with a check attached they’d have been all over it.
But my traffic over the [...]
This came to my attention via a thread on GFY. Funny I’d have it before AVN but hey…
At the beginning Paypal used to come to adult shows and beg us to process recurring memberships through them, Then they got bought by ebay and they just yanked that billing with no notice, claiming the no longer process [...]
It always amuses me when I call them out and they do a new story correcting things. Such was the case with the Mister Marcus story yesterday. AVN now includes the fact that there were two DUIs and the fact that Lylith LaVey is suing him, they got a lot of that wrong though [...]
Interesting, both AVN and XBiz reported on this but neither one indicated in the headline what he was sentenced for. AVN even went on to say his legal problems weren’t over, referencing a DUI charge that is pending.
But AVN didn’t mention the potentially MOST damaging legal problems Mister Marcus has….The civil suit brought against him [...]
Just when we collectively give out more awards than there are movies being made every year another awards show throws its hat into the ring. Paul Fishbein is heading up a company called X3sixty. X3sixty is a media website for the industry. In some senses it’s a good idea but in this case it simply falls [...]
I got the new issue of AVN and as usual there are good pieces in there by Corey Silverstein and Nate Glass. These guys are both very consistent and accurate and are the only reason to read AVN really.
The reviews are fluff and the ad pages are more internet than traditional video these days.
The one [...]
