Porn Star James Deen

Offered Lead Role in XXX

Version of 'The Canyons'

EXCLUSIVE

Porn star James Deen has starred in a number of XXX movie parodies, but he has a chance to make history ... by doing a porn parody of his own mainstream movie!

Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch is actively courting James to direct and star in a porn version of "The Canyons" ... the movie he starred in alongside Lindsay Lohan.

Hirsch sent James a letter, in which he tries to lure Deen to the project by saying, "It would be a first in parodies ... the actual star of a mainstream movie also starring in an X-Rated version of that same movie! How cool is that?"

As for who they've lined up for the role of Lindsay, Hirsch says they've gathered "a list of hot women" for him to consider.

Unclear if the real Lindsay is on Hirsch's hit list, but if Octomom can do it ...

@ Throwback Kid
I am not defending a porn star I am showing what a loser you are. I read newspapers, magazines etc where is this guy popping up all over the place? You seem a bit defensive. Here is a hint -if you don't like what the guy is saying don't read about him.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

It wouldn't be 24 hours of the place opening and all the cash from the register and all the liquor would be gone. Not a good idea having money and alcohol around any and all Lohans . . .

Maddy--get on channel 2. Their guy was in the middle of the shootout between Dorner and police officers. Lots of gunfire and lots of f-bombs from the cops. The anchor kept apologizing for them

Which Is The Strongest Brand? Lindsay Lohan, TMZ or Penthouse?


A headline on TMZ today reads “Lindsay Lohan Doing Penthouse.” The article says that actress/celebrity/trouble-maker Lindsay Lohan is living rent-free in SoHo. Presumably on the top-top floor, even though the article does not say so. Not much different than what we’re accustomed to seeing in National Enquirer-type gossip sheets. But why does this get one’s attention?

Because “penthouse” is a generic term for a type of dwelling, which tends to convey the message of “high class.” No doubt that was why it was adopted by the magazine. Whether it’s accurate, well, discuss among yourselves. But say the word in a certain context and it does not bare bear the same meaning. It means the magazine to most readers of the headline, which is why it is used as it is in the headline.

You want to adopt a name which suggests certain traits that you wish to associate with your product. But (legally, at least) you don’t want it to be too descriptive because it is much harder (and sometimes impossible) to stop a competitor from using your trademark if it is descriptive of the goods or services. “Suggestive” means that you’re being a bit more clever, and taking a word that may suggest certain traits, but does not outright describe what you do. Subtly. Like Lindsay herself.

A generic name is always bad from a trademark standpoint. If you want to stop people from copying your exact name, then don’t use a generic term. If you call your publication GIRLIE MAGAZINE, don’t expect to be able to stop anyone else from using the same name. Even if you were the first and only user of a generic name, you can’t ever earn legal rights to be the only user.

Of course, what the word means to people is usually in context. When you say “apple” to someone in the supermarket, they are going to point you to the produce aisle. APPLE in a Best Buy store is going to mean something very different. The same is true of “penthouse.” If Donald Trump buys (or builds) a new penthouse, you’ll think real estate. You’ve achieved something if you can take an ordinary English-language word like APPLE or PENTHOUSE, and have people think of your product(s) rather than the original thing.

Headline writers know this, and it’s probably more instinctive for them than calculated. TMZ was “accurate,” albeit misleading. Sometimes these headlines are intended to reflect a knowing double entendre. The cleverness draws you in. Here, the double meaning only becomes clear after you’re tricked into reading the article.

This actually got me thinking about one of the other “Great Issues” of our time: what the heck is a “TMZ,” anyway? No doubt, TV watchers and internet users run into it a lot. So they know what those letters represent. I’ve never liked it as a trademark. It makes no sense to me, nor does it really have any cachet. The closest association I can make is TMZ=DMZ. To people of some generations, that abbreviation is readily understood to mean “De-Militarized Zone,” because not a day would go by when you would not see or hear about “the DMZ” in the news.

Woo hoo Max finally admitted he put his dcik in it. Well sort of lmao


Thanks For Admitting You Banged Lindsay Lohan, Max George. No One Ever Would’ve Guessed.
February 12th, 2013 // 16 Comments


For reasons that can only be described as “she blows you so hard time bends on itself,” Lindsay Lohan managed to have a fling with Max George of The Wanted who’s continually denied their relationship because it’s hard to bang more woman if they think your penis breathes fire now. Except he’s finally copped to it after washing his hands (and balls) of her because if there’s one thing Lindsay is even better at, it’s making sure you pay her like a prostitute so she’s not homeless. E! News reports:

I asked him earlier today—while the band was at E! promoting their upcoming series premiering in June for the network, The Wanted Life (working title)—if he and Lohan did actually “snog.”
“Yes, we did—a little one,” George said.
But it sounds like things didn’t go far. “She’s a friend of all of ours and she is a lovely girl,” he said, adding, “We wish her all the best wherever she is.”

Even better, he wants to bang Taylor Swift next which will absolutely happen, and now I can’t wait for her new album, “Holy ****, AIDS Medication Costs A Lot of Money. Seriously, Max George, What The ****?”

snog
1. verb; to interface passionately with another being, creating a field of physical obsession and focused arousal +centered+ on the lips, mouth and tongue


So Max and Lindsay only "snogged" a little, but Max wants to bang Taylor Swift


bang
