Sorry I've been M.I.A. (again) but honestly I only want to post when I have something to say. I don't want to bore you guys with mundane posts. Plus now with twitter there is no point (it ruined everything lol)
Anyways, I got to say going to Chicago was one of the best decisions I made this year so far. After last year's trip I am very glad I repeated. Its amazing what can change in one year. Last year I was just a fan going who was interested in doing porn. Now I have shot 6 scenes, danced for world famous djs, and made public appearances. I've made friends with some of the porn stars I looked up to/lusted after.Even though I'm still new I feel like this has been a transitional year and better trip than last year....
THURSDAY: I flew this year and wow what a difference. It is normally a 4 hour train/car ride but the 45 minute flight was amazing and so much easier (no cars stuck on train tracks). I arrived in the afternoon and checked into the Hard Rock Hotel early. Since I didn't sleep at all the night before (packing, I always over plan then have to edit) I took a nice nap. Then I woke up and went to boystown for some essentials, like lube while checking out the hotties and goodies hanging around. That night a bunch of us Fabscout boys with some other porn guys danced at Hydrate. I'm not going to lie I was scared shitless. In Michigan we don't have go go dancers so honestly this was the second time I have done it (the first time at folsom). It was hella fun, Chi Chi LaRue was the DJ and spun some amazing music. That plus the booze made it easier to dance. Plus the hot boys. The other dancers were hot as fuck and super nice. Sometimes at these events I feel like the odd man out, there is only one other porn guy in the state of Michigan so I don't know many of them that well. They made me feel welcomed though, see

(Chi Chi LaRue and bunch of Fabscout boys)What you don't see is when Tony Hunter pulled out my dick and blew me and I almost dick slapped a drag queen. This was after Diego Vena grinded up on me and got me rock hard. The only downside of the night was I got too drunk for my liking. I don't like to be messy and if I did anything to offend you or piss you off I am sincerely sorry and I can promise it won't happen again. I'm a lightweight so I need to do better. Outside of that fauxpas I had a alot of fun from what I remember. Seeing alot of friends there and my ladies was great.
FRIDAY: After dieing I decided to keep it low key for a while and stayed in bed. Eventually I got up and decided to head to the IML leather mart. On my way I saw my wife Erynn and we hung out together at it. It was good seeing Chris Porter and Samuel Colt and Freddy and Dave from Nasty Pig. Saw Kieron and he made fun of me from the night before. We left got some food and I decided another nap was necessary before heading out that night. That evening plenty of us were heading out to the live taping of the Tim & Roma show. On the way there I heard one of the funniest things all weekend. We (Sandee and Laura from men.com) were passing lake Michigan when the other model in the car exclaims, "I didn't know Chicago was by the Ocean!" The taping was great and hilarious especially because of one model. I went back to the hotel I stopped by poppa Howard's party in his room. Collected my things and my guy (who finally got there) had a quickie, went back to the party then went to JackHammer to dance. Yes, I danced again. It was great. I had some friends show up plus Ricky Sinz and Spencer Reed are great djs. I highly suggest you go next year.
SATURDAY: Hectic I ran around all day making sure things were set for the night. I went to the awards and it was great seeing some awesome people be recognized for all their hard work. Sister Roma totally called me out on my background pic on twitter is me naked, glad someone finally noticed. Congrats to Spencer Reed, mrPam, Christian Owen and everybody else. The after party was bananas. I swear Chi Chi LaRue can make me like any song. Eventually we headed back to pass out because we were tired not drunk, gosh...

SUNDAY: Went to the recovery brunch hosted by Shane Frost and Cavin Knight. Got interviewed. Then with Scotty B, Nick Young and Brody Wilde went to sidetracks and day drank. Their alcoholic slushies are amazing especially the Absolut Berry Acai pink lemonade. Then we went to one of Brody's friends house for a bbq. It was a nice change of pace. Headed back to the hotel to rest for the House of Blues party ended up sleeping all night.
Monday: Headed back to Mundane Michigan.
Overall it was great trip. I met some really cool people and discovered a little more about myself. Can't wait for next year.
