How are you?

My buddy Porno Jim has been doing these live shows for years where he shows clips from bad mainstream porn movies, and dissects everything that he thinks the filmmakers are doing wrong. He started the same places I did; these crazy Lower East Side "alternative" performance open mics. I took to leaving the room when he went on, not because I didn't enjoy his presentations, but because I would find myself sitting next to some crazy, unwashed, smelly, and probably infected "performance artist" thinking about the fact that he probably has a full erection and getting grossed-out.
But after years of talking about what porn-makers are doing wrong, Jim decided to finally put his - heh - money where his mouth is and put together his own dirty movie-show called Hookin' Up. I don't really enjoy porn movies, but the results are quite excellent, and the fact that it's done on the cheap actually plays into whole scene he's tapping into - insofar as the movie's about anything, it's about a loft party in Brooklyn where several combinations of people - yes - hook up. It starred a lot of I guess alt. porn actors, and the party scene itself felt like a lot of big loft parties I've been to.
The release party itself was a lot of fun; apparently, it was an event in the "polyamorous" community. What's funny to me is the fact that even guys who fancy themselves jaded hipsters who are sexually free and swinging, even they can't help but stop and gawk when two hot women are making out in public. Me, I guess I've seen it all at this point, so I stared really intensely for half a second and then walked away clean, jack.
