1. Romaine and Derek’s Intro Segment
Who said lezbins don’t have a sense of humor? Derek and Romaine did a
stand up job by substituting themselves with actual potted plants in
their intro segment. Really? We’re just glad WE didn’t have to host.

2. Chi Chi Proves to Be the Host With the Most … Without Even Hosting
Referring to the popular disdain of Derek and Romaine, Chi Chi reminded the audience how good she looks in comparison. Ouch! Of course, she and we had to admit that the duo didn’t do half-bad, after all.
3. Michael Lucas in Bottega Veneta
Bitch looked fierce and it had nothing to do with Marc Jacobs. In other news, the Lion of Chelsea admitted that he was behind the disqualification of Dark Alley’s 8
1/2 (for its bareback scenes).

4. Chad Hunt’s Neck Scarf
His most fashion-forward moment since this full-arm baby tattoo.
5. Jake Deckard’s Double Win for Best Performer and Best Actor
We’re fearful that the actor-director-producer would beat us to a pulp
if we didn’t mention that the man who became Sgt. Haole in GRUNTS
finally got his due.
6. Ben Leon and Chris Ward win for Best Director and Best Picture, GRUNTS
We’re a little biased here, as we were on set for the production, but
since Raging Stallion is the perpetual Bad News Bears of the industry,
and since they’ve never taken home Best Picture or Best Director, we’re
a little farklempt. “The one that I’m most proud of, oddly,” says
Raging Stallion prexy
Chris Ward, “is best editing. I pride myself on my filmmaking and
that’s the root of it. It’s a testament to our technical ability.”
7. Tory Mason’s New Haircut
It’s avante-avante! And the same flaccid mohawk that Chi Chi has out of drag. You can’t hold the twink still but really, who wants to hold down the next Abe Lincoln.
Okay, back to fellating.

It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
