This past Saturday I FINALLY got to see Refused play. Refused are one of my all time favorite bands and I missed their reunion shows as of late. It was like someone was trying to fuck with me; I would be in New York and the day I had to leave Refused would play New York, or the few times they played LA I happened to be out of town. It was as if Refused’s booking agent looked at my appearance schedule and made sure to book all their reunion dates in cities I was nowhere near!
So, Refused were headlining a festival in Los Angeles called FYF Fest. A whole bunch of bands I liked played the festival which is rad, but, I am old and don’t have the patience to watch that many bands in one day, so, I saved most of my band watching energy for Refused. I did see some of Hot Snakes set, they were pretty good. I love Hot Snakes and they played well, they just didn’t have much energy on stage. Then, I watched Sleigh Bells who were pretty good. I think the singer wants to be the next Karen O, or maybe she alreadyis the next Karen O. Karen O is not nearly as reckless as she used to be and she needs a hot chick who yells a lot to take her place. Next, I watched M83, who were pretty good. I get kinda bored watching electronic bands play. I don’t know what it is. I dig watching full bands play, I guess I’m just punk! I do enjoy listening to M83, but I think you need to be on some kind of hallucinogenic drug to truly be blown away by their performance.
So, Refused were fucking perfect! It was literally the best live performance I have ever seen in my life. I am not kidding! I have seen most of the famous front-men (and women) perform, like Morrissey, and The Cure, Madonna, even Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson… and I swear, no one comes close to Dennis Lyxzen. He gives 100% energy the entire time and the rest of the band played flawlessly.
I am so glad I was able to experience all this with some of my favorite people! Dana Dearmond, Jessie Lee, Josie Jacobs and Phoenix Askani came along with me. We all watched the show on the stage!
(Josie is not in the photo because she was taking the photo)
I met Dennis several years ago when I interviewed the International Noise Conspiracy for Burning Angel and we stayed in touch since! He’s a sweetheart and is probably the sexiest man in Sweden and the best microphone thrower/ twirler on the planet.
Jessie Lee and I made a Dennis sandwich before he went on stage.
And then backstage when I was lurking around I spotted a legend, J Mascis! I didn’t watch Dinosaur Jr play FYF fest but I have seen them when I was younger, they’re basically the soundtrack to my life sophomore year of college.
After the show I ate a whole bunch of greasy diner food with Dennis and another member of Refused whose name I can’t remember for the life of me and I feel like a total asshole because of it. I’m sorry dude!
Handsome and talented Swedish people + Porn Stars = a very good late night meal.
I was in Vegas this weekend! It was an event put on by AVN to start drumming up excitement for the awards show in January. I was happy to be a part of it- it was a hell of a lot of fun. The whole event was called the AVN “Starlets of the Summer” which I found kind of humorous . I felt like that sounded like the title of a beauty pageant- and not 8 porn stars partying for two days.
Here’s me and Dana Dearmond eating meat on a stick at Pink Taco in the Hard Rock Hotel. It was rather tasty.
Here is me sucking on a Popsicle that had alcohol in it. I like to call it an “Alcoholsicle”. It was very refreshing!
Yeah. I guess I did a whole lot of drinking in a bikini. I was a rough job but someone had to do it?
This is me and the Pornstar Chanel Preston drinking alcohol with large sunglasses on.
And here is me and Pornstar’s Kirsten Price and Alektra Blue. They both are way more sun-tanned than me- however, we all had the same affection for plain black bikinis! This was not a uniform given to us. We all just happened to happened to wear them. If you don’t have a black bikini, you should probably go get one. Mine was from American Apparel.
This was me in my party dress.
This is Dana Dearmond pretending to ejaculate on my face with a frozen Mojito.
This is me, Dana and Chanel at Vanity nightclub.
This is us again- only Dana is molesting us. We were all really happy about that!
This is me and Dana using a glow-stick as a mustache.
Here we are again. Dana is either attempting to give me bunny ears, or showing the world how peaceful she is, or expressing the fact that she wants to lick my vagina. Most likely, a combination of all three!
This is me, Dana, Tori Black and Gracie Glam.
This is the awesome thong bikini bottom Chanel Preston wore to the Rehab pool party on Sunday.
This is both me, and Tori Black showing our butts.
This was a large banner of myself that I thought was kinda cool.
And this was me on stage- hanging out while Sean Paul played! I know I know. I probably don’t strike you as a huge Sean Paul fan, and I can’t say I listen to him in my spare time but he was a hell of a lot of fun. And he puts on a super sexual show. He basically spent most of his set humping the air, and I liked it.
This is me and Riley Steele (and Sean Paul in back of us)
Here is me being like wooooooah I’m drunk! Look at me! And I love everything that is black and pink!
This is me and Tori Black waiting for Sean Paul to ejaculate on our faces. Well not really, but we somehow just naturally look like we are waiting for jizz.
Annnd here is me and Riley Steele and Sean Paul.
I had a blast.
When I went to seeote Rancid at Hootenanny, I got this shirt. It says “20 Years On Still Going Strong.” I really love the fact that they have been around for so long, and they are still doing what they do, and they have never been, like, a huge radio band, and that they never went along with any trends in the punk/hardcore scene…Like, they never got super emo, and they never started screaming and adding keyboards. They just kinda do what they do and they are happy with where they are . It’s kinda like me! On some level.
I was really happy to meet so many of my amazing fans in Chicago. And at the convention, there were a lot of new and hot and young girls in porn around…and it’s nice to know that my fans still appreciate me, even with all the new girls out there. I’m 31-years-old! At times, I feel like I’m getting too old to be a sex symbol. But whatever. My vagina will keep going as long as people still appreciate it.
Anyway, the RANCID SHIRT inspired me to make my own shirt…for myself. What do you think!? Here’s a comparison:
However, before the madness of the convention began on Friday, I got To go to my favorite Chicago restaurant Thursday evening. It’s a heavy-metal-themed burger place called Kuma’s Corner!
I ate Mac-and-Cheese and a burger called “The Iron Maiden” – it had avocados and peppers and jack cheese on it.
A friend of mine ordered “The Slayer”…aka, the most obscene burger in the world. It’s a burger smothered tith chili and cheese. Yeah, there is a burger underneath here…
Now, I’m about to board my flight back to LA!
Thanks to everyone who came to see me!!! You made my trip awesome. Good fans and good burgers make me happy.
This past weekend I went to Hootenany with Jessie Lee and Veruca James. There has been a lot of cool shit going on lately! It’s been a very fun summer so far. Hootenany is a big rockabilly festival, that has a huge car show, a bunch of bands, and a whole lot of vendors selling everything and anything you could ever want to buy with cherries and swallows and dice on them.
Two of my all-time favorite bands played, the Bouncing Souls and Rancid. It was awesome. I mean, it’s pretty weird that I have literally seen both those bands play in every stage of my life. I saw both those bands for the first time the year I was 14. I saw them both a few times while I was in high school, then a few times in college, and a few times after college – up until now. I’ve been watching them play for, like, 15 years! It’s pretty insane. Their music is pretty timeless and I will be listening to them forever!
In any case, here are a bunch of photos of me Jessie Lee and Veruca by some really amazing old custom cars. We got into some trouble taking some of these photos – I’m not sure why. It seemed like the guys who has owned the cars’ wives/ girlfriends did not want girls near the cars. I didn’t really get it. Isn’t half the reason you have an old car and bring it to a car show, is so chicks will stand near it? I don’t get it. But whatever – enjoy the photos! We had to dodge a lot of angry women to get them.
Have a happy Monday!
