Some News, Some Art

First the news from Philly

(from a mention by Sarah over at Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind:

Twin gay-porn stars arrested in rooftop burglaries

Twins Keyontyli and Taleon Goffney have been arrested for allegedly breaking into area businesses by cutting rooftop holes to gain entry. Turns out, they were also just as skilled at breaking into their second, more respectable careers – as hardcore gay-porn stars.

The company’s Web site, TLAVideo.com, is the nation’s largest retailer of gay porn DVDs. To Schut’s knowledge, the twins have not appeared in any porn films available on DVD, but he said if they had chosen to further their career in porn, “They could have been huge.”

“Two incredibly beautiful black men and twins – it’s unprecedented,” Schut said. “Ethnic, gay models are rare.”

In fact, Keyontyli, a graduate of the Barbizon School of Modeling, seems to have had legitimate gigs as a model, according to his portfolios on Jurgita.com and NYCastings.com. He has served as a runway model for clothing companies BOIISH and Azzure, and this month, he has a seven-page spread in CLIK, a magazine for black gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

He lists several television appearances in his portfolio, including gigs as a “seat filler” on VH1’s “Save the Music,” and a “Super Bowl shuffler” in a “Saturday Night Live” skit.

Taleon also has a lengthy portfolio – but his is kept by the police.

“Taleon is a bad, bad dude,” one police source said.

Chief Dave Kunkel of Clementon, N.J., had no trouble recalling his department’s run-in with Taleon in 2006.

Officers conducting surveillance work at an apartment complex spotted Taleon running up the building’s walls and turning back flips.

“The officers said, ‘We’re glad we’re not going after him,’ ” Kunkel recalled. “Lo and behold, after that, he began conducting open-air, hand-to-hand drug sales.”

Police arrested Taleon for possessing about a half-ounce of crack cocaine and a loaded .25-caliber automatic handgun. While handcuffed in the back of the moving car, Taleon smashed out the rear window by head-butting it, police said. He then dove through the window and its steel frame, causing $1,800 in damage, Kunkel said.

After landing on his face, Taleon rose to his feet and, while still handcuffed, fled on foot and into a nearby pond, police said.

“He swam across like Flipper, taunting the officers saying, ‘You’ll never catch me,’ ” Kunkel said.

Indeed, they didn’t. Two officers were injured while chasing Taleon. A week later, he turned himself in. But he didn’t return the department’s handcuffs, Kunkel said.

Somehow, I don’t think is going to end up as a story “ripped from the headlines” on Law and Order.

And moving from the tawdry to the sublime…..

And continuing with images but into cinema…

The trailer for Tarem Singh’s new feature The Fall. This is Singh’s first film since the hallucinatory The Cell which not only featured the lovely Jennifer Lopez but also the ever quirky and enthralling Vincent D’Onofrio (if you doubt, see Salton Sea) , and one of my favourite ubiquitous Euro presences, Patrick Bauchau.

  1. Wow, that film looks amazing.

    I’d ask how you always hear of these amazing things I’ve never heard of, but you do list your sources, generally.

    The only thing these lasts two collection posts don’t allow are a lazy reader.

  2. The last two are from somebody on my blogroll..the second might be Militant Platypus and the last Ticklebooth but I am not entirely certain.

  3. […] hasboro sausages, you must like something.    Aos will cure you. He’s a collector of ideas, art, film, concepts. He does the work of compiling all the most intriguing tidbits, so I can read his blog instead of […]

  4. Most interesting post. For the first item, I wouldn’t be so surprised if Law & Order did a show based on these two characters. I bet they wouldn’t be above references to porn (just maybe not gay porn), they have done just about everything else.

    The Fall looks awesome. I’d love to see it, thanks for the preview.

    I’m here via Amuirin’s.

  5. There’s no murder…they need a murder or a death. Otherwise, yes, I think they would.

  6. […] 2 Science fiction films -the best- part 3 Science fiction films -the best- part 4 Science of Sleep Sex in the movies Some news, some art Something Wild and something wilder…Dog Bite Dog Speedracer Springtime […]

  7. […] Great praise indeed, and quite possibly true given The Cell’s indication of potential. Some time ago I posted the trailer which you can find here. […]
