Sad to report on the death of another industry good guy. Performer/director/producer T.J.Paris passed away last week. He was found unconscious on his kitchen floor, according to reports, and attempted CPR revival by paramedics failed. Paris directed or performed in many gay adult films in the 90s, for many of the top studios of the day, including "Black Balled" for All Worlds. He was inducted into the GAYVN Hall of fame. The cause of death was not released. Our sympathies to his family and legion of friends.
If you're one of the couple of readers who still do DVDs, be aware that Hot House has released their "Saddle Up" on that format, directed by Christian Owen. Featuring the Falcon Studios Group debut of their exclusive Derek Atlas, and wasn't that just a mouthful, not unlike Derek, the movie also features Ryan Rose (of course it does), Brian Bonds, Jimmy Durano, and Ricky Decker, Micah Brandt (right) and Angelo.
Hope you didn't miss Francois Sagat week over at the TitanMen site. If you did, you can catch up with the release of volume 1 of the "Best of Francois Sagat" DVD out now. Featuring some of the best scenes from the tattoo-headed young man's career, look for clips from "Shacked Up," "Telescope," "Thrust," "Breathless," and "POV," with others like Braxton Bond, Damien Crosse, Eduardo, and Viktor Jones (right). I'll just betcha there will be another volume coming along in the future. The comp scenes here, by the way, were personally selected by Titan founder Bruce Cam, and you know what that means.
Lastly, you'll want to sneak away from the Holiday festivities to check out the grand finale being released on Christmas Eve over at BelAmiOnline. The series "Fucking Kris" ends with "the flip-flop scene of the year," featuring Kris (Evans, if you follow this) and Rhys Jagger.

The guys of the COLT Icon Series are indeed the "cream of the crop," if you like your crop to be furry with sculpted bodies. The latest to appear (again) is Tony Lombardi, in a collection of "rarely seen" images from the COLT Vault. Just lovely to look at.
Because they are indeed America's finest, the Falcon Studio Group has released "America's Finest." The "important" film features 100% exclusives, because we know how important that is to prospective viewers. The release is produced by the Monster Bang line and co-directed by Nick Foxx and Trenton Ducati. Yes, Trenton now directs, and this is his debut. A short list of the "exclusives" seen here would include Brent Corrigan, Ryan Rose (of course…he's like Chickenman..he's everywhere), Boomer Banks, Sean Zevran, Andrew Stark, David Benjamin (right), and it goes on. Look for the Rose/Zevran flip-fuck, and a nasty, piggy scene with Shawn Wolf and David Benjamin, either one of whom could be a future husband.

If you're into the giggly young men getting tied up and stuff, the ExtremeBoyz.com site has newbie Tai, in his "first-ever" dungeon encounter. What can I say.
If you've been drooling over the Randy Blue guys for lo these many years, you might want to take an inside look at the guy Randy himself. In case you missed it, our colleague Adam Baran at The Sword put up a rare interview with the guy who's been doing this for a dozen-or-so years. He talks about the stars "back then," like the luscious John Davenport, seen here from "Big Guns,:" and the way things have changed and yet stayed the same. Here's the link, and it was still working as of this writing.
