So “R” had told me that Phoenix was the up-and-coming (so to speak) city for the porn industry. I had no way of knowing whether that was true but it made sense. It seems to be the place for porn stars to retire. Lo and behold, the current issue of New Times, entitled Risque Business, promises that Phoenix is the next porn capital. Thanks for keeping me informed, “R”!

One of my customers used to be in the adult film industry apparently. He’s considering a return to the smutty screen and asked me all about the Phoenix scene. I guess I sound like I am in-the-know where strippers and porn stars are concerned. I confess I know people who are in-the-know, so I may be guilty by association. After a brief discussion, during which I tried to make my answers as vague as possible so as not to sexually harass my co-workers, “R” asked if I ever considered a career in porn. I don’t know if I should be concerned that he thought I was 16 judging by my voice, or not.

Hello World! It’s official. I’ve been blogging for a year as of today. It’s been a crazy ride. At  first I didn’t really know what to do, but quickly caught on that if I post about Twilight, I get a ton of views. (Thank you Stephenie Meyer!) My following is steadily growing. As of this minute I’ve had 14,315 views, most of them related to either Luke Grimes or the New Moon casting call in Phoenix that I crashed, with a bit of ‘Bella Swan Porn’ thrown in for good measure.

Thank you all for continuing to show up. I can hardly wait to see what the next year has in store. As I said last year: Since this is posting after midnight somewhere, Happy Earth Day.

Quileute Cutie

Quileute Cutie

I posted about my Phoenix (New Moon) casting call experience a while back, and then revisted it. I wondered if the “Quileute Cutie” weren’t none other than Kiowa Gordon, who we will see as Embry Call in New Moon. According to USAToday Kiowa is from Peach Springs AZ. I wonder if I might have actually been in the same room as him (even if that isn’t a picture of the pre-buff Kiowa). For that matter Alex Meraz, who will play Paul, is apparently from Mesa AZ, where I have lived for the last 10 years. Hello, fellow Mesan! I wonder if you were also at the Phoenix casting call when I was there. If you saw a crazed white girl taking pics from just inside the door, that was me. I hope I didn’t annoying you while you were going over your lines or anything. If I did, sorry. It worked out for the best though, right?

So, I’ve been having a rough time of it lately, being unemployed and all. Old Man Bobby discovered that we have a Sprinkles in the Valley and decided that’s what we would do Date Night Tuesday. Yeah, he occasionally has these moments of sweetness and brilliance.

My apartment had different ideas. It’s no my apartment’s fault really. The apartment upstairs started it. Their water heater broke and flooded the place. Trust me, the trickle down effect isn’t fun. A few hours after their fiasco, I started hearing an unpleasant drip, drip, drip, and suddenly I had my own fiasco. A little heads up from the apartment complex would have been nice, but that might be a whole other post. The bottom line of this post is that Sprinkles has eluded me. Black and White, Dark Chocolate, and Chai Latte…one day you will be mine.

I just updated my post on my casting call experience with photos altered long ago by Letters to Twilight (thanks again girls). While I was there I checked to see if I saw any familiar faces. I want to believe that Kiowa Gordon (Embry Call) is the Quileute Cutie I posted a picture of, but alas I am afraid not. If only it weren’t so blurry and I could find out where he auditioned, maybe I could get to sleep.

BTW, has anyone else noticed this about IMDB’s listing on New Moon?

Chaske Spencer Lakota
Tyson Houseman Quil Ateara
Kiowa Gordon Hualapai

Tribe names instead of character names for Chaske and Kiowa?

I haven’t heard any casting news. Does anyone know if anyone from any of the recent casting calls has heard anything yet? They start shooting in mere weeks. Surely somebody knows something. I’m particularly interested in the Phoenix casting call, having gone to witness it myself.
