Freefall Fornication

Here you go... This gives new meaning to the mile high club. 

Pornstar and part-time skydiving instructor Alex Torres, decided to combine his interests together, strapped on the lovely receptionist from the skydiving school and shot a video of them getting it on during a tandem jump.

 All good until he posted the video on his blog and some high school kids started passing it around.  Now the FAA are conducting an investigation.  So far nothing to charge him on.  Both participants were of legal age... and since they were hooking up 10,000 feet in the air, no one saw it and complained.

You can read more here.

I don't have the video for you... but here are some censored stills form the jump.



The Skinny on the iPhone 4s

Posted 10/15/2011 8:04:00 AM

Big week for Apple.  One week after the passing of thier founder and innovator, Steve Jobs, they relased thier long awaited iOS 5 operating system for iPhones and iPads followed by the release of the iPhone 4s.

There was a little disappointment Apple wasn't releasing an iPhone 5 but once everyone got over it, the iPhone 4s is definitely an upgrade.  If you want to grab more details, here's what the tech gurus ar CNET.COM are saying.

I think there must be something in the male DNA which makes us crave new tech devices we do not have.  I feel totally inadequate with an iPhone 4 now.  I hear Shatner saying it now:  Must... get... the... new.... iPhone...now!

This trailer looks pretty good.  It's out next May.

 



Wizard of Oz Gone Wrong

Posted 10/11/2011 10:05:00 PM

A Florida Representative, Ritch Workman, has submitted a bill which would lift a 22 year ban on dwarf tossing in the state of Florida.  Does anyone think this is a good idea?  To be honest, I forgot that people ever did this.

My band Stabbing Westward did a video with a troop of little people for our song Sometimes It Hurts.  The director had this concept based on the Wizard of Oz where the munchkins are a bit mischievious. It was great to hang with these guys all day and to gain some perspective of their world.
