Vivid Studio Insider for May 25th, 2007STEVEN HIRSCH NAMED TO "ALT TIME 100" & PAUL THOMAS MAKES LA WEEKLY "PEOPLE" LIST - Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch has been named to the Alt Time 100 , a special list of " people who matter to the rest of us." Compiled by Time Magazine senior writer Joel Stein , the list includes, in addition to Steve Hirsch at #58, Bill Clint on at #59, and other such as Magic Johnson , Martha Stewart , Donald Trump , Elton John and Barrack Obama . Meanwhile, LA Weekly Magazine has named Vivid director Paul Thomas as one of the " LA People 2007 ." Calling him "the auteur of sex," the magazine wrote, "depending on your view of pornography, director Paul Thomas is either the Ernst Lubitsch or the Mack Sennett of hardcore....what sets Thomas apart from most of his industry colleagues is his insistence on production quality and storytelling (and) thanks to Vivid's comparatively high budgets, he is able to shoot on film instead of video."
"MAN'S RUIN" FROM VIVID-ALT SHIPS - "Man's Ruin , " the second Vivid-Alt film from director Octavio Winkytiki is now in stores nationwide. Vivid-Alt head Eon McKai says, "This is another beautiful movie; another passionate project from Winkytiki and Vivid-Alt. We've already had incredible feedback on the packaging." Winkytiki's first effort, "The Rebelle Rousers," earned six AVN nominations for the 2007 AVN Awards . The "Man's Ruin" packaging features a three-panel gatefold sleeve holding a two-disc set and an added pouch with a Man's Ruin temporary tattoo in the design of one Winkytiki had permanently inked on his chest during the shoot. It depicts a "stripper riding a beer bottle with some drugs and some gambling [images] thrown in there...this movie basically has all of that," said McKai. The movie follows regular punk rock girl Melodie Gore as she fights her way through different levels of bizarre, sexual perversion. Man's Ruin also stars Justine Joli, Ava Rose, Mia Rose, Celeste Star, Satine Phoenix, Lystra, Claire Adams and Stoya . Vivid-Alt celebrated the release of Man's Ruin with a party on Thursday at Little Cave in Los Angeles .
"JANINE LOVES JENNA" SOARS TO TOP OF THE CHARTS -- " Janine Loves Jenna " the dark sexual fantasy film starring adult film icons Jenna Jameson and Janine has just been released but it has already soared to the top of the AVN Sales and Rental Top 50 Chart . The long-awaited Vivid Entertainment and ClubJenna film marks the landmark return of the actresses on screen together for the first time in 12 years.
It also is the first film in which Jenna has performed with a male co-star since " The Masseuse " in 2005. ClubJenna is calling it "the most shocking movie in the history of adult." The film follows Jenna as she travels through a lush sexual dreamscape of desire, trapped in purgatory after she commits suicide. Jenna is forced to "experience unimaginable ecstasy and severe lust" - including four hot scenes with Janine and the enticements of the King of Hades. The two-disc set is loaded with extras including bloopers, deleted scenes, exclusive behind-the-scenes features, photo galleries and six collector's cards.
In addition to "Janine Loves Jenna" at the top, the AVN Top 50 chart this week also shows " Debbie Does Dallas...Again " at number three, " Where the Boys Aren't 18 " at number 11 and the Vivid-Teravision film " Reign of Tera 2 " at number 15.
