Gay-for-pay porn star-turned-convicted felon Ryan Idol is in prison for trying to kill his girlfriend by bashing her over the head with a toilet tank lid, but that isn’t stopping him from keeping up to date on all the fun gay porn news! Despite being locked up and awaiting sentencing, the attempted murderer still managed to find out about an old scene of his being included in C1R’s new compilation DVD, Criminal Cocks, and he is not happy about it at all.
You would think that with his sentencing coming up on the 21st of this month, Ryan Idol might have things to worry about other than a bargain basement DVD that has been written about on more blogs than it has sold actual copies. You would think…
But, here’s the latest on Ryan Idol, via agent David Forest (who else):
Ryan Idol called me from his “home away from home” (Sacramento Municipal Jail), where he’s lived the past 11+ months. We chatted about the “big day” (Sept. 21), when the judge will render a decision on Ryan’s request for a new trial. If you’ll remember, he was found guilty of attempted murder last September. Rather than be immediately sentenced, he asked for the new trial. Matters have been delayed several times while Ryan changed attorneys. With his 4th attorney now in place, he’s ready for the verdict. He’ll either be granted a new trial (and probably given the chance to post bail) … or … his request will be denied and the judge will immediately sentence him for the attempted murder charge that the jury found him guilty of a year ago. We also talked about the Channel 1 Releasing movie that has come out (“Criminal Cocks”). He confirmed to me that he DOES have the contract that he and Catalina Video signed for “Idol Thoughts,” which is the film that C1R took the scene from for the new, “Criminal Cocks.” The contract clearly forbids the use of any of his material for any other film, even by a producer that purchases the footage (C1R bought Catalina Video). As we agreed, this matter will have to wait until he’s done with the attempted murder case.
Uhh, yeah. Put a pin in that. First of all, I’ve never heard of any kind of contract where the performer kept the rights to the content. Ridiculous! Granted, things were different when Ryan Idol was making VHS movies in the 80’s, so who knows. I asked David Forest to put up or shut up:
Send me the contract if it exists! This whole thing is dumb.
To which he replied:
I don’t have the contract. Ryan does. He’s in jail. When he’s out (cross your fingers) … we’ll pursue this matter.
Uhh, right. Fingers crossed.
Ms. LaRue, ashamed as she should be, hasn’t even had the balls to send me a little note to pass on to Ryan. C1R is blatantly breaching the contract that exists regarding Ryan’s filmed material from “Idol Thoughts.” They probably figure that he’s “gone” … so who cares. It’s just that attitude that makes the gay xxx biz so disgusting. No concern for the civil laws and rights for the performers. Ryan is one of the only stars that ever demanded that his “material” be protected from compilations, “best ofs,” etc.
Well, if only Ryan would have had that kind of foresight before trying to murder his girlfriend with a toilet tank lid.
Here’s the trailer for Criminal Cocks. Be sure to pick up your copy before Ryan Idol is released from prison, sues Chi Chi LaRue, and gains back full control of all his movies!
