It is the dog days of summer, and thus the “Adams Report” staff is on vacation. In the meantime, we’ve unzipped our bulging mailbag and answered some of your most pressing questions about GayPornLand and its inhabitants. This week we’ve got updates on retired directors and performers, straight male hotties going gay (sorta…), porn star blogs, and more. So, dive on it and don’t forget to breathe through your nose.

Q: “I read an ex-porn star died this week but I didn’t save the article. Do you know who it was?”
A: I’m sorry to confirm that Tim Barnett, whose real name was Bradford Wagner, recently committed suicide. He had been incarcerated since June 2004 in the Boulder County Jail in Colorado awaiting trial for rape and other charges. We first reported on this story one year ago. News of Mr. Barnett’s death was circulated by the Associated Press newswire. The evidence gathered against Mr. Barnett was apparently compelling; he was the prime suspect in at least seven alleged rapes. He left a suicide note, but authorities did not release its contents.

In his early ’90s heyday, Tim Barnett, who was 37 years old, appeared in roughly 20 films. His better pics include ABDUCTION 2: THE CONFLICT (Falcon Studios/Paladin, 1993; d. Steven Scarborough) and ABDUCTION 3: REDEMPTION (Falcon, 1995; d. Scarborough); BILLY’S TALE: A MODERN DAY FABLE (Falcon, 1994; d. Scarborough); and WANTED (Catalina Video, 1994; d. Chet Thomas).

Q: “Blue Blake was my favorite porn star and my favorite director. Is it really true he’s retired?”
A: Yes. In fact, the garrulous Mr. Blake celebrated his 42nd birthday with a lavish bash on Saturday, July 16th. It was thrown for him by his husband, Harold Huttas. During the party, once we’d both been properly liquored up, I asked Mr. Blake point blank if he was secretly planning something along the lines of a “coming-out-of-retirement” movie. His unequivocal reply? “Absolutely not.” So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth. Although I should also mention at the time I asked Mr. Blake that question, he had somehow lost his shirt and was wearing a jaunty sailor’s cap.

Among the hundred or so guests at the gorgeous Hancock Park home Mr. Blake shares with Mr. Huttas were a handful of porno folks (and a few celebs): director Drew Warner with his b.f. Troy Punk; videographer/director Andre Adair; Arena Entertainment’s Tom Esparza; Cal Vista Video president Sidney Niekirk (one of porn’s power brokers); and the bodaciously gorgeous Robert Van Damme, with a stunning blonde in tow.

Q: “I read in one of your columns that Chi Chi LaRue will make another STR8 SHOTS movie. Will the fucking hot Kurt Lockwood be in it again?”
A: Unfortunately, no, insanely sexy Kurt Lockwood will not be appearing in the sequel to STR8 SHOTS (Rascal Video/Channel 1 Releasing), which goes into production this week. I visited the Channel 1 offices recently and Ms. LaRue gave me a sneak peek of her upcoming Eddie Stone epic, MASTER OF THE HOUSE, which was shot on location in Majorca, Spain. Afterwards she told me about the STR8 SHOTS sequel and before I even opened my mouth she said, “Julian isn’t doing it again.” Damn! The girl knows me too well… So no megahung Julian and no Kurt Lockwood, but there will be another collection of stunning hetero porn stars wanking it for the gay market. Look for it later this year.

Q: “What’s the title of the Joey Stefano biography?”
A: That would be “Wonderbread and Ecstasy: The Life and Death of Joey Stefano” by Charles Isherwood (Alyson Publications, 1996). It’s a bit thin on personal information about Mr. Stefano, but otherwise the book is a good overview of his meteoric rise and tragic crash.

Q: “I loved THE HOLE [Jet Set/Marina Pacific)] by Wash West. Is he making any more porn movies?”
A: At the present time, Mr. West has no plans to direct another skin flick. But he is currently directing another indie film in Los Angeles, which would be his follow-up to THE FLUFFER. Stay tuned.

Q: “Whatever happened to Eric Hanson? God, was he beautiful.”
A: Although retired for three years, I suppose the stunningly gorgeous Mr. Hanson could stage a comeback at some point. His final flick was for All Worlds Video and writer/director Wash West: SEVEN DEADLY SINS: GLUTTONY (2002). At the time, he filmed a scene for the final film in that series, titled REDEMPTION. For various reasons, REDEMPTION was delayed and finally got a release this year. Check it out if you’re a fan. Even with his superb Falcon flicks, I don’t think Mr. Hanson was better utilized in any other film than GLUTTONY. Last I heard, he was living in Miami and working as a personal trainer.

Q: “Are there any porn star blogs?”
A: Yes, indeedy. Director-performer Michael Lucas has an often hilarious and very opinionated blog at Lucasblog.com; one of his very first entries on anal douching stirred up a lot of internet interest and it’s been all up- or downhill from there, depending on one’s perspective. Moving on, performer Sean Storm’s periodically updated journal can be found at Seanstorm.blogspot.com.

Performer/boyfriends Damon DeMarco and Hunter James, who appeared together in CAMP FRESHMEN (Unzipped Video/Channel 1 Releasing, 2004), have a witty set of diaries chronicling their New York City lives: Mr. DeMarco can be found at Nakedcityboys.blogspot.com, while Mr. James’ URL is Notthatboy.blogspot.com.

Producer Paul Morris of bareback studio Treasure Island Media can be found at Treasureislandmedia.com/bloggo/blog.htm. The witty and literate Jacob Slader recently founded a blog at Jacobsladersrungs.com, while at the other end of the scale, Jeff Palmer’s stream-of-consciousness ramblings are now locked away behind a Badpuppy.com membership, but it’s almost worth the fees just to read Mr. Palmer’s 3000-word, single-paragraph, fractured syntax prose describing his voluminously explicit sex life.

Here’s a couple more: Performer Nick Capra updates his blog about once a month at Nickcapra.com, where he often rants at length about his melodramatic love life and other sexcapades. The appropriately titled Gaypornblog.com is maintained by WET PALMS co-writers Jack Shamama and Michael Stabile. And archived editions of the “Adams Report” can be found at Gaypornwriter.blogspot.com.
