My boss' grandpa passed away and he wrote something for his blog and asked me to post it while he is out of the office. Doing this made me realize a few things. First of all, the guy is more than a boss- he's a friend and I really care about him. I feel all sad for him and all of that mushy stuff. Also, I looked through some of his childhood pictures to find a picture of him and his grandpa for his blog.

It's amazing to me the disconnect that people make when they sexualize a person. When I look at these childhood pictures I get a better picture of the whole person, someone that many people don't think about when they think about a porn star. But that's the weird, icky problem I guess. Too many people dissociate an individual from their true humanity because they like to objectify someone as a tool for sexual arousal- why not be aroused by a person as a whole? Sometimes it seems less popular in the world. But things are changing. The success of La Dolce Vita may signal that taking effort to create real stories and characters in adult movies is the next step in modern sex culture.

Mmkay. That's all for now. BTW, I got a show tonight and tomorrow, check my sidebar for details --->
