It seems Next Door Buddies attempted rescue of Falcon has failed. The bank came to collect, and this time there was no white knight.

So control of the iconic Falcon brand falls to Chris Ward. The irony is, of course, the films he directed for Falcon in the late 90′s were sold to Steven Scarborough, with the exception of the one or two Mustang movies (and I believe one of them stars Chris Steele, head of Jet Set. Wow, small world.). I guess Hot House is next for AEBN?

Ah, Twitter, you’ve already taught me so much, and it’s only been a month! You’ve reintroduced me to JRLChartsonline.net via a lovely little tweet that caught my eye regarding Titan Media pulling all content from the AEBN network.

Now, first, I have a problem with JRL. Frankly, they seem a bit too willing to give their advertisers positive coverage. Make that exclusively positive coverage. I respect their charts (as oposed to AVN’s, which are a joke), and afterall, JRL is trying to cover the dwindling wholesale market, and they have built some credibility on this front.

A couple of weeks ago, however…

Is there anyone out there that is not aware of the relationship between GayPornBlog, which is owned and operated by NakedSword, a division of AEBN, which in turn, owns Raging Stallion? Apparently, someone at GayPornBlog deems this information too intimate to reveal; at least, after posting a criticism of their recent post Is Leaked Raging Stallion Clip Snuff? pointing out that there is absolutely no coincidence that it appears, and that it seems rather self-serving not to disclose the relationship, that’s all I’m left to think. Three days later and my comment seems to be stuck in moderation.

A “leaked” clip of an “envelope-pushing” scene. Wow, who woulda thunk it? Liked the “evaluation copy” watermark, nice touch. I’m sure it made the one or two people out there who aren’t familiar with jwplayer are now convinced that the clip really was “leaked.” Sure is interesting how that guitar player happened by to strum a few notes (and over, and over, and over…) while the gay-for-pay fucks the other one, all nicely edited into a smooth-flowing segment leaked for sensation.

I’d say please, grow up but…

The acquisition of Raging Stallion/Pistol Media by AEBN is having some unintended consequences. Namely that gay studios are flocking to the competition unlike at any time before.

It seems that studios such as Hot House and Lucas are placing their films on National A-1 (gay hot movies), and Maleflixx is getting inquiries from studios they’ve never done business with before.

Much of it has to do with gay studios liking some competition, and some has to do with the fact that Chris Ward and Co are hated so deeply within the gay porn community. Read the rest of this entry »

At the predictable-down-to-the-minute GayVN awards, Raging Stallion AEBN won everything, including the lovely shoes worn by Mr. Mapa. Not that anyone expected a different outcome, but one note worth mentioning: Ricky “Stubby” Sinz as best top. Who knew 4 inches will get you an award in San Francisco!

And then there’s Michael Lucas. Grabbing the microphone. Saying something stupid. Not letting it drop there. Stop me when I’ve said something new.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Almost everyone in the industry knows that the so-called “merger” of Raging Stallion and AEBN is in actuality a takeover of the studio.

Director and legend-in-his-own-mind Chris Ward has had a wild ride in the porn biz. His fast dealing ways have finally caught up with him. His outsized ego was always a problem for him, and he made decisions not based on sound business practice, but on extraneous factors such as whether he could screw a competitor. Not to be cruel, but what goes around, comes around.
