The rumor mill's been on fire lately, with talk of Elegant Angel being sold, following owner Patrick Collins' new perspective on life and pornography after a close brush with death involving a life-threatening spur of the moment weekend trip to Burma last spring. According to entirely non-official reports, Mr. Collins was kidnapped and held against his will for twelve harrowing days, only to be freed at the last moment by mercenaries, at which time he's said to have undergone a significant change of heart regarding the porn business. All of this, of course, is unconfirmed.
What is confirmed, though, is that day-to-day operations of the studio have been passed on to Wendy and Jim Crawford, who are currently overseeing production of new titles from Elegant Angel's existing directors Asa Akira, Toni Ribas, and...um...something called Mime Freak.
Hey, have you ever wondered what an Elegant Angel porn series directed by William H. called Wet Asses might look like if it were released by Jules Jordan Video instead? Well chubs, look no further. It sort of looks like this!
Well, not really...but techically, I'm paid to say that I do. Thus, I like porn. But even more than porn, I like strawberries. A close friend of mine swears that strawberries are at least the third best thing about being alive behind blowjobs and Harrier jump jets, but I digress.
Are you still pissed about Portrait of a Call Girl winning big at the AVN Awards this past January? Well, hold on to your dicks, assholes, because Graham Travis and Elegant Angel are getting set to repeat the whole shebang with their upcoming super-serious, helvetica-texted sex flick, Wasteland! If my gut feeling is any indication, this movie's going to turn the industry on it's ear in the coming months. But keep in mind, my gut feeling is absolutely no indication of anything, so place your bets accordingly!
Frankly, I was hoping their big movie this year would be a reinvention of the long-lost and well-beloved Slop Shots series, but you can't win them all, I guess.
In case you didn't know, Tori took her cookies and went home a while back and has been on extended hiatus. Perhaps this will be the first step towards a return to things like this, but even if it's not, we'll be excited to see her pretend to remember who we are.
Today, Elegant Angel (one of our most favorite studios) announced a new line they will be releasing called Best New Starlets. While this may not be a shockingly original concept given porn's tendency to obsess over all things, "new" it's pretty spot on when Elegant Angel does it because...well, it's Elegant Angel.
But wait, there's more! It's not just one of Elegant Angel's usual hits like "Big Wet Faces" or "Anal Senate" or something like that. Rather, they're kicking it up a notch and doing a big-time bonafide feature pornograph! This is noteworhty, because unlike studios who make their living on cranking out feature after feature month after month, Elegant's traditionally been a gonzo studio who usually shies away from dialogue (in favor of extended dance sequences near waterfalls and stuff). In fact, according to Elegant's press release, this is just their second feature in the past however many years, the first being either Pornstar Superheroes or Prison Girls, I guess (or maybe Let Me Suck You, because that had a pretty intricate plot).
If any of you dicks have been paying any attention to this site at all over the past 3 years, you KNOW that we love to party. You see, we're kinda old dudes - most of us are close to or past the bad side of our 30s, but our penchant for partying has only improved with age. You know, like a fine wine? Speaking of wine, where the hell is that kid with my box of wine??
Sure, you're an adult studio that might not be considered, "A" material. You might only be an adult company trucking along in a tough economy trying to make a buck. That's no reason to go out there and just steal a concept, is it? I mean, c'mon!
