The Adult Entertainemnt Expo and AVNs of 2013 are officially in the books. We have all packed up our things and memories and have headed back home, the ever dreaded real world, of our regular boring jobs, where we don't get to see many pretty ladies all in one place. I have spent the past week uploading interviews and pictures I have taken and I can say that they are all finally done and you can check them out.
I have to say that I am rather impressed with some of the pics I took (which you can see here), luckily I have a nice camera, that sometimes makes it look like I know what I am doing. Upgraded photo camera this year, will have to upgrade video camera for next time, but perhaps that will Porno Nerd's job. Don't get me wrong, I got some great interviews with some great people, just need an upgrade and after all of the drama we had on Friday with the battery dieing an hour before his Jules Jordan interview, that should be a sign right there to upgrade a little.
I arrived in Vegas on Tuesday, I left Milwaukee and it was 24 degrees, and I arrived in Las Vegas, and it was also 24 degrees, not really the weather you are expecting in Vegas. Luckily for me, I would be inside all day and there were rumors of it supposedly warming up by the end of the week. Tuesday was a rather mellow day, met up with Porno Nerd at the airport, called my buddy, who would be letting us crash at his place for the week and helping us get around, so a big thanks to Rob and Kane for putting up with us for the week. We headed to the Hard Rock on Tuesday night to get our badges and just to walk around a bit, to see if we see anyone we know. As soon as you land, you are on constant watch for some of your favorite performers.
I can say that once the show got going on Wed, which is press day, it was all one big blur, so I am going to do my best to recap the week. I do have to say that we got started off on a great start, thanks to Daniel at Wicked, who got me and Porno Nerd into a photo opp with Jessica Drake and Samantha Saint (who I would get to interview later that day). And if you look at the pictures of Jessica Drake, she knows how to work it for the camera, made sure that we all got her attention and make the photos even look better. And so we left the Wicked suite and headed down to the floor to check out the main rooms. And the minute you enter the main room, ,luckily for me, I was immediately in front of the Elegant Angel booth, and you know what that means, I get to see my favorite girl, Lily Carter,
and I would like to thank her for remembering me, I guess saying hi all those days last year and chatting with her on Twitter paid off a little. Have no fear folks, she is still stunning and so freaking sexy. And I was planning on taking a ton of pics of her, and of course a few with me.
I had a 4G memory card and my goal was to fill it up every day. I didn't make that goal, but I think I got a decent batch of photos either way. I am also glad I was hanging around Porno Nerd, as it was a constant game in between us, of who is that pornstar? Luckily he is great at that game and introduced me to a few new people, that I will look forward to seeing more of in the futures. One of the ladies I was super excited to see in person, ok there were a few, was Madison Ivy,
and let me say that she is not ugly even in person. Great body and those eyes of hers are just as memorizing in person. Headed back to the Wicked suite for my first batch of interviews, Samantha Saint and one of my personal favorites, Alektra Blue, these were fine examples of why I need a new camera, plus shooting into the sun, perhaps not the greatest idea.
Back to the floor and we ran into fellow Xcritic family member, Ashley Graham and then continued to walk around and then it hit me, and by it, I mean Riley Reid happened.
I admitted I was late to the party on her, but dear god, that girl knows how to make her fans happy. The lines were never super long, but they still took a bit to get through the line, as she always chatted with everyone and wrote small letters to everyone. And from the first day, after seeing her and chatting with her, I knew I was going to be visiting her every day too. Don't worry Lily, you are still my number one, it's going to take a lot to knock you out of that spot.
(Interview with Marie McCray)
We continued to run around all over the place, trying to say hi and meet with as many people as we could, due to it being press day, the crowds were not that bad, and it was the first day, so everyone was still awake and aware of what was going on. But I knew my game plan was to say hi to as many people as I could, and get a crap load of pictures, and I would be spending lots of time around the Elegant Angel and Jules Jordan booth, so it was easy to find me at times. We ended the day and headed home, and that night we ended up going bowling and we were lucky enough to be joined by the lovely Kendall Karson.
I was hoping to get an interview with her that night, but decided that the next day would be better. It was a good time either way and I thank her for joining us. I had my camera, but for some reason, I didn't take a single picture, fail on my part.
(Jodi Tyler, keep a lookout for this lady)
The rest of the week was filled with constant running around, trying to make it to interviews, while also saying hi and more photos, but here are a few highlights that stick out:
(Great Interview with Dana Vespoli)
Giving Maddy O Reily a box of Nerds every day, she loves them in case you ever get to meet her.
(Kennedy Leigh at Jules Jordan Booth, will be on the lookout for this girl)
Chatting with Remy LaCroix, talking about Torn and Remy and finding out she's sticking around and be on the lookout for the her BJ on a jet ski
(Me and Best New Startlet Remy Lacroix)
(We pretty much all interviewed Chanel Preston and hopefully you understand why)
Meeting Jennifer White, who Porno Nerd literally ran into her and we were both happy to see her.
Running into Stoya before and after the show during the week and getting to catch up with her a little.
(Somebody get Stoya some food!)
Meeting the TWISTY girls, who all looked amazing, Emily Addison, Brett Rossi and Taylor Vixen, told them how I became a fan after seeing them work with Dani Daniels
My Interview with Melissa Makeup, it too two attempts, but we finally got it, thanks again for doing the interview and for being patient with us.
Meeting Jessica Jaymes, been a fan for awhile and she was super nice, and even took a picture with us, with her camera, and you can see us on her blog.
Meeting Elle Alexander, fellow space nerd, talked about the space shuttle and also got an interesting gift from her cause she didn't have a marker to sign a DVD for us.
Finally meeting Celeste Star and getting to interview, she is just full of energy and enthusiasm.
(Celeste Star, ladies and gentleman)
Meeting up with the Xcritic crew, Ebert, Rob, Robin, Leya, etc. It was great meeting you all again, some for the first time, we have a great family of people on this site.
The frantic hour or so as we tried to make sure that Porno's interview with Jules Jordan is going to still happen after the batteries in the camera died, another example of why the people we work with are awesome.
Another entertaining interview with Stoya
Finally meeting Tommy Pistol and getting to chat with him over dinner and then getting an interview. Thanks again sir, it was cool to meet you. Pee Wee!
(Tommy Pistol and Evan Stone)
I really hope I didn't forget anyone, but here is a list of the cool people I got to meet/chat/interview/take photos of during my time in Vegas. As always there were a few interviews that didn't happen and some things I wish I would have mentioned when I was talking to some people. But you just have to keep moving and don't want to take up too much of anyone's time. I can't wait to do it again, next year!!
