"I think a lot of people just assume we just shoot it and post it."That's what one of TitanMen's directors, Jasun Mark, told me when he and I were talking about his latest Behind the Scenes video the other day. I am ashamed to admit I was one of those people, to an extent. I know the editing process takes up a lot of time, much longer than the actual filming of a project/film/etc. But, in my naive little head, I figured it would take up to two weeks to edit a scene afterward. (In an ideal world, maybe.) Jasun went on to inform me that one of their current releases was shot as far back as this passed January. Holy crap. The Titan team certainly works hard for us and, if you've seen any of their gorgeous productions, then you know it shows! And now Jasun is sharing with us the editing process of his latest Titan flick, Pacific Coast, and what it takes to make sure Ricky Decker's butthole stays well lit as Eric Nero's tongue goes to town on it while they're outdoors!

Adrian De Berardinis, The Bear-Naked Chef (the man I pretty much fell in love with overnight because, well, I mean, look at his butt him!), is taking his show abroad for three special "Travel Edition" episodes! His first stop is Madrid where he learns how to make a popular and traditional dish, albóndigas en salsa Española (meatballs in Spanish sauce). The ten-minute show changes things up a bit for the Travel Edition. As mentioned above, Adrian learns about the traditional dish first – but worry not, pervs! He then he heads back to his kitchen, where he dons his familiar itty bitty apron (that's still far too big IMO), gym socks, and nothing else!God bless him. Says Adrian:Speaking as someone who can make an OK meatball, I can see it's clear Adrian is a truth-teller! It looks so easy to make that I'm going to try this one out in a couple of weeks, see how it goes! Will you be making these meatballs, too? Or are you too busy looking for Adrian's?
This incredibly sexy, savory and delicious specialty combines local ingredients and classic technique, and [it] will be a definite new favorite with my viewers. The recipe is easy-to-follow, has sophisticated flavors, and is a sure fire crowd-pleaser.
To hear the showrunners tell it, Jon Snow is dead. Maise Williams has said so. Carice van Houten said so. The boss of HBO has said so. It’s the company line, and everyone seems to be sticking to it. But any good Braavosi worth his weight in iron coin knows that this just can’t be. George R. R. Martin takes a worrisome pride in fan reaction to the deaths he’s wrought upon his characters so far, but he’s been cryptic when alluding to the fate of The North’s most famous — and arguably most important — bastard. Jon’s place in the overall narrative has still not been revealed, and that’s what keeps fans incredulous at the thought that he’s just gone without an explanation. If Jon had anyone left behind to tell his story, maybe it would make sense to kill him off. But Ned Stark, who raised Jon Snow like his own bastard son, didn’t impart the knowledge of Jon’s mother to Snow or to anyone else that we’re aware of. And it would be far too much of a Deus ex Machina to have some old confidant of Ned’s to just pop up and say, “oh hey, by the way, here’s Jon Snow’s story, and he’s totally dead. Sorry ‘bout it.” The increasingly mainstream R+L=J theory posits that Jon is the son of Ned’s sister Lyanna Stark and Rheagar Targaryen. If true, that would mean that he has the blood of Ice (the Northern-bred House Stark motto is famously “Winter is Coming”) & Fire (the Targaryens keep dragons as pets for crying out loud) and that the collective title of this series of books could be very well focused on Jon, and likely Dany as well. Now, with all of that being said, Kit Harington was spotted on set filming new scenes for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Could these scenes be flashbacks? Sure. Are they likely to be flashbacks? That’s harder to say. Jon appears to be dressed in duds similar to what he wore when he still lived at Winterfell, but are the show runners seriously going to give us a season one-era flashback now? I most certainly doubt it. He's not in his Crow attire, that much is true, but he also appears to be much further south than the Wall. Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy, AKA Reek, appears to be standing right next to Kit, although he’s dressed down in civilian duds, so it’s unlikely he’s filming a part for that particular scene and his scenes would have either preceded or followed the one the cast and crew were in the middle of in that photograph. Under the umbrella that is keeping the monitors and equipment shielded from the elements, there also stands a lady who appears — to me at least — to look an awfully lot like Carice van Houten (Melisandre herself) also dressed down in civvies. That observation is a stretch, to be sure, so take it with a grain of salt. The woman could very well be a producer, camera tech, or any such crew member. But as Alfie and Kit’s respective characters did not spend much time together in the first season, it’s unlikely that a flashback filmed now, 5 years after the show’s debut, would involve the two of them in some way. And a flashback to a time when the two of them were in the same place most CERTAINLY would not involve Melisandre. So what does it all mean? When it comes to GoT, who the eff knows? All I know is that I refuse to accept Jon Snow’s death as fact. Even if Martin kills Snow off in the upcoming book, I still will refuse to accept that fact. You just don’t set up your man for a touchdown play only to then pull him out of the game. You just don’t George! Furthermore, Kit Harington’s absence at the Golden Globes was mighty suspicious, given that if he had truly exited the show, he’d be more than happy to give post-mortem interviews about his time on the show especially on a night celebrating the show, and talking about how proud he was that they had been nominated for awards. Instead, the HBO brass likely kept him sequestered from such a press-heavy event so as to prevent any possible clue leaking out about his new upcoming filming work on the show. What do you fine folks think about the photo? Am I reading far too much into Kit’s presence, as well as the folks around him? I want to know so let’s discuss below or on Twitter. Long live Snow! --- HT Comic Book ResourcesFollow @harveywalker Follow @ClosetCaseRoman
Well, well, well, well, well, well, well. John Boehner, the Ohio-born, bar-raised blue collar boy has decided to follow in the footsteps of his previous Number 2, Eric Cantor and get out while the gettin' is good. Granted, Cantor was ousted from his elected position during a surprise upset primary battle with an unknown, but Cantor nonetheless resigned his position well before the end of his term. John Boehner has faced resistance to his speakership from his own party for the past 6 years, but this year, rumblings of a call to Vacate the Chair (remove the speaker) from his caucus was reaching a fever pitch. It looks as though he has decided to cut and run before the process actually took a turn for the nasty. This also makes one question what sort of deal the Speaker has planned to unveil for an extension of Government funding. If he has decided to strike a deal with Nancy Pelosi (who, since her own time in the Speaker's chair has still had a hefty amount of power to run the House in crisis moments) to fund the Government, then he is likely announcing his retirement as penance for compromising. Unfortunately, the Conservative wing has let their priorities get so twisted that the word "compromise" to modern day Republicans is tantamount to "terrorism."

LEGO Dimensions is getting 100% more Unikitty! Just don’t make her angry! One of the best new characters to have been debuted in last year’s megahit The LEGO Movie is getting drawn into the shenanigans of LEGO Dimensions. Today’s trailer has the character’s voice actress, Alison Brie, being pulled through the LEGO Gateway and into the upcoming Dimensions game, transformed into Unikitty. If you’re unfamiliar with the movie or the character, Unikitty is the half-unicorn, half-anime kitten who exudes sweetness and light … until you make her angry. Turns out her temper rivals that of even Hulk’s. She joins her LEGO Movie costars Wildstyle, Batman, and Gandalf as they attempt to stop Lord Vortech from destroying the entire LEGO Multiverse. LEGO Dimensions will launch at the end of the month, on September 29th, and will be available on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii U.

It’s here! After a bit of touch and go after last week’s last-minute delay, the Apple Watch’s Watch OS 2.0 is live and ready for download. The update brings with it new features for the 8GB wearable device to make it even more useful, including the Nightstand mode that allows your Watch to function as an alarm clock while it charges overnight. Nightstand is turned on by default, so that means when you update your software, all you need to do to activate it is attach the Watch to its charger and set it sideways on your bedside table. The Watch’s comparatively extra-long charging cable just got a lot more useful. For quicker access to more of your contacts, the Friends button now pulls up two quick-menus instead of just the one. That means you can now reach out to at least 24 people with just a couple of quick taps. To be honest, I had a hard time thinking of just 12 folks to fill up my first menu, so the option for a second menu is obviously aimed folks who are more social than I. Third-party apps can now be directly designed to run natively on the Watch’s software, as opposed to offloading all of the heavy work onto your iPhone. Developers can now create their own complications (widgets) for customizable watch faces for their apps as well. Notifications can now be muted from the watch itself, without having to change your iPhone notification settings. If you have an Apple Watch, you can install the new update by going to the Watch app on your iPhone. From there, you’ll select General, wherein you’ll find the Software Update option. Do you own an Apple Watch, are you waiting for the second generation, or are you going to skip the wearable altogether?Follow @harveywalker Follow @ClosetCaseRoman
If you're not familiar with Damien Michaels yet, then ...er, well, why the hell aren't you already? Since December of 2014, Damien has quickly made quite an impression on amateur cam-streaming site Chaturbate under the moniker BigDame90. Lately, if he's not the #1 male cam on his account or on the Voyeur Boys account (as he's currently living at the VB house in Arizona), you're likely to find the 25 year-old IT nerd somewhere on the first page. In less than a year, he's gained nearly 20,000 followers on Chaturbate and just over 5,000 followers on twitter, as of writing this post. You'll soon see why after interacting with him yourself! The 25 year-old is as kind and playful as he is mischievous. And when he speaks to you, his velvety voice lures you into an embrace you'll find hard to break free from. "Big Dame" is even starting to grab the attention of some studios such as Kink, American Muscle Hunks, and Falcon's Hard Friction - all of whom recently released scenes featuring Damien! He was tortured and brutally abused by Sebastian Keys and Jessie Colter on Kink's Men on Edge, he topped the gorgeous brick shit-house that is Johnny V on AMH, and Damien even got to tear into Mickey Taylor's ass in a Steve Cruz-directed scene for Hard Friction!We're witnessing the start of an amazing career and personality in Damien, and there's still so much to come! Including his bottoming debut he shot recently, in case you weren't satisfied by all the butt-stuff in his MOE scene. His blossoming success isn't landing on blind eyes either. On September 10th, much to Damien's surprise and only nine months after he started his cam shows, he was nominated "Top Male Webcam Model" for the Adult Webcam Awards! Damien's voting page. There are two methods of voting – one is to click the hard-to-find vote button near the bottom of the page, the other is to write a comment on the Adult Webcam Awards facebook page – so just keep a lookout for the following text on the page because that is the actual button: Now that you're more or less acquainted, will you vote for Damien?...how about now?

Here it is. It's really happening. The long-awaited podcast has arrived, and it's... eh, decent. Trista and I spend most of our time shooting the shit about tv, queefing, the X-Files renewal and a lot of other shizz. It's very much stream-of-consciousness talking between two old friends. It's unprofessional. It's sloppy. And it's the best version of ourselves. It's over an hour, so I hope you have a long commute. Follow @harveywalker Follow @ClosetCaseRoman
