Geez, in all the craziness leading up to my boob job (which I will post about in another post), I completely forgot to make an entry about my World Cup themed shoot.
Which I actually got out pretty much in the nick of time. And though I am only reporting on it now, a few weeks later (it totally slipped my mind), I hope no one looks at this shoot and says “Oh, that’s not topical, it’s clearly not worthy of wanking to”
So…. unless you’re one of those guys, let me present a few samples of “Goal Oriented”…
Believe it or not, this shoot sorta came about because I had bought a super girly pink and white soccer ball years ago.
Sadly, when I was getting ready to do the shoot, the ball actually exploded from the heat (over inflation) and I actually had to make repairs to it before I could shoot with it.
Yeah, talk about my weird life, there I am hours before my shoot frantically taking a bike patch kit to a soccer ball in a vain attempt to make it hold enough air so it didn’t look like well, a flat ball (and so I could sit on it in some shots). The logic being that the shoot needed to happen THAT day and like RIGHT NOW, because if I remember correctly, the weather was nice, and there was about 3 days of horrible thunderstorms on the way so yeah, me out in the backyard fixing a soccer ball. And no, there was no time to locate a replacement – a quick look in Target or Walmart of wherever showed no soccer balls exactly like that one, and seriously, I had based the entire color scheme of this outfit specifically on this ball, because, well, wouldn’t you? (ok, so maybe this explains my obsessive attention to detail)..
The other noteworthy thing about this shoot was the fact that I basically wove that net myself. Rather than sneak onto a real soccer field and well, get arrested, I decided to find a patch of grass in my backyard (admittedly not the nicest lawn, but I had to work with what I have) and make a mock up of a goal. But I didn’t want to spend the money on some $40 dinky kids hockey goal that in the end would only be about 2 and a half feet high, I got about $7 of thick yarn and used a bunch of PVC pipe (of which I’ve inherited enough to reach the moon and back – you may soon start to notice just how many of my projects involve PVC pipe..) to make a fairly passable section of net. Actually it was sufficient to fill the background with enough elements to make the set interesting and convincing.
So even though the World Cup officially ended oh.. only a couple of hours after I got the set up (like I’ve said time and time again, it takes hours to do a shoot, and like 4 or 5 days to edit the pictures), it’s a nice shoot, and a companion piece to “Hole In One”.
Anyway- expect a boob job update post coming very, very soon, I promise! And some news about Uranus Needs Shemales, because even the night before my boob job I awas frantically working on a scene for that. Since that movie is being shot out of sequence, I didn’t want my boobs to get bigger in one scene, and then smaller in the next scene.
I’ve actually been so busy immediately before, and subsequently after the boob job that posting to my wordpress blog sorta got put on the back burner and then fell off the back of the stove. I’ve mostly been posting more to my tumblr, but wordpress blogs and tumblr blogs are constructed in different ways, and there are advantages and disadvantages to each one. I can update both from my phone, but making a wordpress blog post from a iphone is really tricky. On the other hand, posting more than one picture to tumblr from my iphone isn’t possible, unless you shunt the pix over to my ipad, and then post from that. Sometimes new tech manages to suck and then you realize that it’s just easier to do either one from your decade old computer, except the “instant photos” are on the iphone..
Anyway, Let me gather my thoughts (and some pictures) of my new boob job and I will see you soon!
