Short Takes: Grabbys Seek Co-host…and More



Happy New Year, guys! Y’all know what the new year means—the start of awards season! And we don’t mean just the Golden Globes and Academy Awards, we’re talking the GAYVNs and the Grabbys. While the jury is still out on the GAYVNs, we’re not hearing good things—no sponsor and decreased support from AVN don’t bode well for this award-show institution. (Full disclosure: Vince has been a judge for the GAYVNs since its inception 11 years ago.) But we do know that it’s business as usual for the Grabby Awards. This Chicago-based event, which used to be sponsored by Gay Chicago Magazine, will be taking place on Saturday, May 29, at the Park West Theater. This year, Grab Magazine is asking fans to help choose which pornformer will serve as co-host. Voting opens today, so head over to Grabbys.com and pick which stud you’d like to see on-stage alongside hosts Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West. The show has used a similar tactic in the past. Hey, does anyone remember what porn star Wolf Hudson did to get the gig last year? Yeah, we don’t either.…Is that Lucas on the line? With a new site designed specifically for mobile devices, it very well might be! Spankmo Mobile and Lucas Entertainment have announced the launch of Lucas Entertainment Mobile, available now on mobile phones at m.lucasentertainment.com. With no app store necessary, users can enjoy high-resolution streaming video of Lucas hits such as Paris Playboys, Feet Extreme! and the popular Auditions series; they can also search for their favorite titles and models. The site is updated weekly and works on all mobile devices, including the iPhone, Android, PSP and others. “Mobile technology becomes increasingly prevalent in the adult industry day after day,” president/CEO Michael Lucas says. “I can tell that customers will really enjoy this hands-on approach to our content.” Hands on, indeed.…And we have a winner! Elizabeth Young of Philadelphia has taken the prize in the annual VincentLambert.com calendar contest. (Yes, we have female readers!) She gets a copy of Raging Stallion’s sold-out 2010 To the Last Man calendar, which features Jake Deckard, RJ Danvers, Logan McCree and nine other manly men. Betsy won us over with her enthusiasm for RSS and its high-quality films. (She is also a blogger. Check out her cool All the Colors of Darkness movie-review site at silvaraslair.blogspot.com.) Heck, if a lady can get this excited about watching guys fuck, then there is hope for the skin biz! Btw, if you haven’t picked up your wall calendar for the new year yet, RSS has some other great ones still in stock, including Stallions and Inked (below).
