In an email to the Sword, Lucas said Quest’s claims “are blown out of his ass, totally tasteless and cheesy” and that Quest is “mentally ill, on drugs or both.” This afternoon, he forwarded us an email to Quest. Let the flames begin!
In a post two weeks ago on SpencerQuest.com, Quest, who had recently discovered he had HIV, recounts asking Michael to disclose his status to his scene partner:
insisted Titan inform my potential scene partner (which to their credit
they did), Lucas told me he wouldn’t do the same. But I could. And I
didn’t. The only person who knew of my HIV status while filming for
Lucas was Michael himself.
To which Michael responds:
I stumbled upon your blog and I am quite shocked to read your
ramblings. What exactly are you blaming me for? My policy was always
known to everybody: I do not disclose my actor’s HIV status, as I
believe that this is a very personal issue. You knew my position on
that, as I have told you about it as well as discussed it on my blogs,
public ads, and interviews. And, we all know how this virus can be
transmitted, which is only by not using a condom, (and usually with the
help of drugs). I, personally, had sex with you in a film, at least
twice, knowing that you are HIV positive. Did I ever discriminate
against you for that? And, you know that I am HIV negative. (And don’t
get me wrong, I do not thing that I am corageous for having sex with
HIV positive people. I think that it’s a normal human behavior). If you
believe that you need to announce your status to your sex partners,
then you should just do so; but, do not blame me or anyone else for
your own actions. It also seems to me that you are accusing me of your
drug problem, because, apparently you were not into the model and
you’re saying here that the director of the scene was telling you to
bring the energy level up. Are you implying that you were encouraged by
us to do drugs? I mean how dare you accuse us of any wrong-doing? My
company and I, personally, were extremely fair to you. You were the
only model who received royalties for the film. My movie brought you
the awards, etc. I think that this is incredibly low of you to
publically blame me for your own irresponsibility in your your private
life. I am incredibly disappointed. And, I would love to blame drugs on
these insane blog postings of yours, since it sounds like you are still
on them. And I hope that the real you will never stoop so low.
P.S. If I ever did break my own policy, it was the case when I did not
test you on drugs, as I usually do with anyone who I suspect is high.
Would I know you were using drugs anywhere around the shooting days, I
would fire you on the spot.
I wish you all the best.
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.
