Defiance Films Receives 6 Nominations for 2006 AVN Awards
Porn’s fastest growing upstart company honored by industry trade publication

Defiance Films(Chatsworth, Ca) – Defiance Films is pleased to announce that they have received 6 AVN nominations for the upcoming 23 rd annual AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 7th, 2006. The Awards show will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on at the Venetian Hotel Resort & Casino.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for all the hard work we have put in,” Keith O’Connor humbly explained. “We’ve only been shipping less than half of a year and already all the love our cast and crew have offered up is being noticed. I really am speechless.”

Among the handful of noteworthy nominations, Defiance has been nominated for Best New Video Production Company, an honor that means more to the company than all the rest.

“We’ve really tried to create something special with Defiance,” Head of Sales Anthony Simone offered. “We’re like a family. If one of us wins, we all win.”

Keith was quick to share similar feelings.

“All of our directors, performers, editors, photographers, graphic artists and production crews have played a part in putting Defiance on the map today. Each of them has played a part in growing this company into what it is today. In less than six months time, Defiance Films has become recognized and is synonymous with quality and class. For that reason I feel like we’ve already won. I’m both grateful and honored that AVN would consider us for these awards, and I am proud of all that we at Defiance have accomplished together.”

In addition Defiance contract directors Taylor Rain and Lauren Phoenix were both nominated for Female Performer of the Year as well. Shortly after the nominations were announced, Taylor Rain and Defiance began to hint at a special announcement coming from the starlet herself, but, as of yet, fans and friends are still anxiously awaiting word.

“It’s going to be big news about her career,” Keith coyly countered. “She’s the only one who can make the announcement. It’ll be worth the wait, trust me.”

LOS ANGELES, California (AP ) — The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday demanded an apology from Michael Jackson after ABC aired what was said to be a telephone answering-machine message in which the pop star referred to Jews as “leeches”

The message was supposedly recorded two years ago and has now surfaced in connection with a lawsuit against the pop star.

“Michael Jackson has an anti-Semitic streak and hasn’t learned from his past mistakes,” ADL director Abraham H. Foxman said in a statement. “It seems every time he has a problem in his life, he blames it on Jews.”

Jackson infuriated Jewish groups in 1995 when his song “They Don’t Care About Us” included the lyrics “Jew me, sue me, everybody do me, kick me, kike me.” Jackson apologized, saying the lyrics were meant to demonstrate the hatefulness of racism, anti-Semitism and stereotyping. He then changed the lyrics.

On Tuesday, ABC’s “Good Morning America” aired portions of a 2003 voice message that Jackson was alleged to have left for a former adviser, Dieter Wiesner.

A transcript provided by the office of attorney Howard King quotes Jackson as saying: “They suck them like leeches. … They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything and end up penniless. It’s a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose.”

Jackson spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain said Wednesday the singer had no comment. A call to Jackson’s attorney Thomas Mesereau was not immediately returned.

The message was among about a dozen released by King, who represents Wiesner and another former adviser who are locked in business disputes with the pop star and are suing him for millions. King said he released the messages to keep Jackson from appearing sympathetic in court.

Jackson, now living in the Persian Gulf kingdom Bahrain, was acquitted in June of molesting a boy at his Neverland ranch.


Mike Edison has a sure-fire hook for his memoir: sex, drugs and journalism. Edison, former High Times editor and publisher and now the editor in chief of the revived Screw magazine, says his book will feature “more strippers, prowrestlers, porn stars, pranksters, potheads and punk rockers than have ever been assembled in one place.” So far, the list of well-known folks whose names will appear include Evel Knievel, Al Goldstein, Keith Richards and Snoop Dogg.

Stay tuned for this exclusive story!!!

(ok ok already….. I’ve had over 300 emails about WHAT’S THE SCOOP???…. all I will say is this. The exclusive breaking news story INVOLVES and will be written by Taylor Rain herself.)



R. KELLY “Signature” sunglasses, the ultimate in keeping urine out of the eyes of teenage girls

CHICAGO (AP) — Singer R. Kelly is a step closer to trial after a judge refused Friday to dismiss charges in a three-year old case against him for allegedly engaging in videotaped sex acts with an underage girl.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 14 counts of child pornography.

Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan rejected defense arguments that prosecutors have been too vague about when the alleged crime took place, said county state’s attorney spokeswoman Marcy Jensen.

Prosecutors claim the video was made sometime during a nearly three-year span between January 1998 and October 2000. They cut 18 months off their original timeframe of November 1997 to February 2002 after a judge agreed in June that the span was too broad.

Defense attorney Ed Genson did not return a call for comment after business hours Friday.

Kelly, whose first name is Robert, won a Grammy for the gospel-like song I Believe I Can Fly. He’s also known for sexually charged music like Bump N’ Grind and Ignition.

The next court date was set for Dec. 9.



Fayner Posts: I looked at the pictures of American G.I.s smiling among exploded heads, torn limbs and much worse. It is appauling to think human life is so meaningless to the people who got a kick out of snapping pictures like this. Take a look for yourself. It’s fucking wrong.


WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (Reuters) – The U.S. Army after a brief inquiry has failed to determine whether U.S. soldiers provided grisly photos of people killed in the Iraq war to a porn Web site in exchange for free access to it, officials said on Wednesday

The numerous graphic pictures posted on the Web site showed men, with their faces visible and wearing what looked like U.S. military uniforms, standing over a charred corpse, mutilated dead bodies and severed body parts.

The porn Web site states the photos were provided by troops in Iraq as well as Afghanistan in order to get free access to its sexual images. Many of the photos, still posted on the site, are accompanied by captions making light of the corpses; for example one photo of a charred body was dubbed “Cooked Iraqi.”

The Army Criminal Investigation Command in Iraq conducted the preliminary inquiry within the past week but closed it after concluding no felony crime had been committed and failing to determine whether U.S. soldiers were responsible for the photos and whether they showed actual war dead, Army officials said.

Col. Joe Curtin, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon, said there currently was no formal investigation into the matter.

“We’re not blowing this off,” Curtin said. “If the Army thinks it’s in its interest to investigate something, we will. There are multiple challenges here. One is the anonymity of the sources, dates, times, locations, units, anything that is reasonably identifiable that we can work off of.”

This controversy over the photographs involving U.S. military personnel comes a year and a half after other pictures taken by U.S. soldiers became public in April 2004 showing them abusing and sexually humiliating Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghraib jail, a scandal that prompted international condemnation of the United States.


The Washington-based Muslim civil rights group Council on American-Islamic Relations, which had called for an investigation into the allegations of photos of corpses swapped for pornography, called the probe insufficient.

“It’s entirely inappropriate for the military to do such a cursory investigation of something that is really casting a very negative light on our nation’s military and can only serve to further damage America’s image and interests throughout the Islamic world,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the group.

Hooper said the military must determine who was involved and whether the conduct violated U.S. military law and international laws governing conduct during wartime, including the Geneva Conventions.

Curtin said the Army was not ruling out the possibility of opening a formal criminal investigation. “Any time new information becomes available that’s credible, yes, they potentially could reopen the case,” he said.

The Web site separates the corpse pictures from its sexual images. According to an article in the Online Journalism Review of the Annenberg School for Communications at the University of Southern California, the site’s owner, Chris Wilson, lives in Lakeland, Florida, but hosts the site out of Amsterdam. The article quotes Wilson as saying the site’s images of nude female U.S. soldiers in Iraq and photos of war dead provide a “raw” account of war.

Officials said that while the Army’s preliminary inquiry had determined no felony act had taken place, soldiers potentially could be punished for conduct unbecoming a soldier, which generally brings administrative sanctions.

Without confirming the authenticity of the photos or who took them, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said, “This does not represent the values of the United States military, and doesn’t represent the vast majority of the actions and behavior of our men and women in uniform. It is a despicable practice. It’s unacceptable. And the department is going to address it.”

Curtin said the military was examining policies, procedures and legal implications of how soldiers transmit photos from the battlefield, and could consider limiting troops’ use of their own personal computers or cameras in a combat zone.

“The military must be very careful in not violating an individual’s First Amendment rights,” Curtin said, referring to the constitutional right of free expression.

“Soldiers encounter the horrors of war, and they are able to record it,” Curtin said. “You mix it with the porn site, now you muddy the waters.”

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Schoomaker on Wednesday sent a message about “Internet Safety” to U.S. soldiers, but focused on restrictions on images that could compromise operational security on the battlefield. Curtin said the message was unrelated to the corpse photos.




WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. army is investigating complaints soldiers posted photographs of Iraqi and Afghan corpses on an Internet site in exchange for access to pornographic images on the site, officials said Tuesday.

An Islamic civil rights group said it wrote to U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld objecting to the practice, which it said may violate international laws of war, and urging the Pentagon to bring it to an end.

“This disgusting trade in human misery is an insult to all those who have served in our nation’s military,” Arsalan Iftikhar, legal director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said in his letter to Rumsfeld.

Bryan Whitman, a spokesman for Rumsfeld, said the Pentagon had recently become aware of Internet postings and is looking into it.

“Obviously, it is an unacceptable practice,” Whitman said.

An army spokesman, Col. Joseph Curtin, said the Criminal Investigation Division recently began investigating the matter on behalf of Lt.-Gen. John Vines, commander of the Multinational Corps in Iraq.

Another army spokesman, Paul Boyce, said later the preliminary criminal inquiry determined, based on available evidence, that felony charges could not be pursued. But the matter, including the possibility of disciplinary action, was being handled in co-ordination with other military services, he said.

Many of the photos depict dismembered Iraqi corpses and body parts. Some also were submitted by soldiers in Afghanistan.

Fayner Says: 10-to-1 says this gets downplayed and quickly swept under the rug…
