Just saw an ad in the mosr recent Yes!Weekly newspaper promotin' The Gold Club. I know that the site it used 2 b on is now The Mirage, so where is this club @ now? The ad didn't give any instructions on where it is, unless they r startin' from scratch again.
Wonder if they learned from last time? Might b something 2 look in2....
Strip clubs in G'boro r REEAAAALY suckin' lately, & I DON'T mean as in Blow Jobs! The industry is fucked up nation-wide w/ club owners complainin' how these new strippers like dancing 2 Hip-Hop & how they don't like playin' it (i.e.: They don't want Black customers). Then some clubs r lettin' the dancers fuck in The VIP Room, a definite NO-NO! Then u have owners like Johnny Walters that let ANYTHING go on in their establishments. Then u have people who have NO IDEA about The Strip Club Business enter it & fuck up the whole game! I remember back in the day that u just didn't have this type of shit going on, unless it was a "hole-in-the-wall" spot that was shut down soon afterwards. This industry needs 2 get it in gear & prepare 4 the future...
He really doesn't need me 2 write a bio 4 him.. Read the article below:
'Deep Throat' star Harry Reems dies at 65
Harry Reems in 2005
By Jordan Zakarin, The Hollywood Reporter
Harry Reems, the former porn actor best known for his role in "Deep Throat," has died at the age of 65.
First reported by his friend Don Schenk, Reems' death has been confirmed by Gawker. Schenk wrote that Reems died of pancreatic cancer at a VA hospital in his adopted home of Utah.
In a 2005 interview,
Reems estimated that he starred in between 300 and 400 adult films,
though his role in "Deep Throat" was a last-minute adjustment by the
film's director, Gerard Damiano, when the original star was unable to
perform his duties. Reems was working lights on set, part of an attempt
to learn the craft of film, when he was thrust into porn history.
was arrested in 1974 on conspiracy to distribute obscenity across
state lines, in what became a famed trial that held broader
implications for creative freedom. Jack Nicholson and other stars lent
him support, while "Deep Throat's" other star, Linda Lovelace, testified
against him. He was convicted in 1976, but it was overturned in 1977.
Born Herbert Streicher, he was born in Manhattan
and dreamed of becoming an actor, eventually starring in off-Broadway
productions. He began porn as a way to make rent; his theater training
later helped him get cast as the coach in "Grease," but Paramount
eventually gave the role to Sid Caesar, as protests over Reems' past
were threatening the movie's success. He later struggled with alcoholism, though he took his last drink in 1989. He married and became a real estate agent. As for Lovelace, he said in 2005 that he never saw her after the trial, and remained a bit bitter over the fallout.
really hadn’t been in contact with Linda or Gerry for some years prior
to the trial," he said. "The only opportunity I had to briefly make
contact with Linda Lovelace was vicariously through a friend of hers,
who called me up to tell me that she needed some money; she needed a
liver transplant and couldn’t afford it. So I sent a thousand dollars
to her ... and never heard back, never got a thank-you."
It seems that a new strip club has opened up in G'boro... The Mirage Gentlemens Clubis takin over the spot that was held by The Gold Club b4 it closed.
If this is another "high-end" strip club then prepare 2 take a big loss in G'boro.
The strip club scene here isn't shit like it used ta b, & if there tryin 2 charge out the ass 4 simple drink like The Gold Club did, then prepare 4 another closing.
Hell if Eddie Collins got rid of Harpers (It's 'Thee Dollhouse' or something now)as long as it was here, & Christie's r lettin strippers in w/ tattoos & such, then b prepared 4 a bumpy ride Mirage.
& I hope it's not like its sister club in Jacksonville, FL. I remember the Old Mirage on W. Market St. (owned by my favorite dude, Johnny Walters). Nice place, but they changed the concept & it gut shut down (sound familiar?). We'll c what happens. Stay tuned, pervs...
It seems that The Crystal Cabaret (which is still owned by Johnny & his peeps) has undergone yet another transformation. It tried 2 b a White Strip Club 4 a minute. When that didn't work, Johnny went back 2 using Black dancers & Black customers (people he REALLY doesn't respect. I remember when they used 2 closed up the ol' Platinum Club whenever it was A&T Homecoming orSuper Jamz). The one major change is that Nina Black is no longer in the mix.
Wonder where she's 2? Whether she was fired or left on her own (she's been fired & hired by Johnny numerous of times b4), I don't know @ the moment.
Let's c if it's the same ol' shit as b4, or has he really learned his lesson.
This dumb bitch is STILL accusing Darren James of giving her HIV when SHE was the one that was that gave it to HIM! Read this shit below, courtesy of AdultFYI.com
Lara Roxx - She's Still Around, She's Still Angry and She's Still Blaming the Porn Business
--on the web
Lara Roxx is still spreading the canard that she got HIV from the
porn industry when still shots of her scene with James clearly shows
she has some atrocious malady already in her body.
- Former adult film actress Lara Roxx left Montreal for Los Angeles
seeking stardom in 2004 and ended up with HIV just two months after
doing her very first adult-film scene, an unprotected double anal.
Roxx then became really famous – her case even shut down California porn production for a whopping 30 days.
“But the business hasn’t changed since I worked,” Roxx says today.
“Like I said [on the TV show] Tout le monde en parle, I think it’s
deplorable that animals are treated better in mainstream movies than
human beings are in pornos. Porn movies are like snuff films – you die
for real. In porn, you get HIV for real. I’m just happy I’m out of the
Almost a decade later, Roxx will take part in Inside Lara Roxx: A
Screening/Lecture about Porn, Prevention, Hype and Hope, on January 31
as part of Concordia University’s Community Lecture Series on HIV/AIDS
that is open to the general public.
The lecture will open with a screening of Montreal-based filmmaker Mia
Donovan’s critically-acclaimed 2011 documentary film Inside Lara Roxx
which chronicles Lara’s gritty life story and how the press exploited
her story, then quickly forgot about her afterwards, much like the porn
“I felt compelled to make this film because I had been working as a
photographer at that time, and I was completing a documentary photo
essay on sex workers just prior to learning about Lara’s story,” says
Donovan, who is also acutely aware of how media condescendingly portray
sex workers. “So when I saw her being interviewed on the local news I
remember just thinking that it could have been any of these girls I had
met while researching subjects to photograph.”
Donovan continues, “But what really struck me about Lara was how despite
all that she had gone through she was still cracking jokes to the
newscaster and there was something about her persona in these interviews
that seemed to be starving for someone to really listen to her and take
her seriously – two things that none of the newscasters or journalists
at that time seemed to be capable of doing. I was also annoyed at how
much of the media seemed to trivialize her story. All this inspired me
to contact Lara back in 2004.”
For her part, Roxx says meeting Donovan was a life-changing.
“Just hanging out with Mia changed my crowd of negative people,” says Roxx, now 30 years-old.
“Meeting Mia and making this documentary is the most positive thing
that’s ever happened to me. It changed my life. I’m now engaged, I’m in
school studying graphic design, and graduate in April and now I’m
looking for an internship in a publicity firm!”
But Roxx is still angry, though not so much with Darren James, the
former porn star who gave her HIV in 2004 (James has since criticized
the porn industry for failing to protect actors from infection).
“If I saw Darren James today, I’d feel more sorry for him than angry
because he thought all he could do with his life was make porn movies,”
“I didn’t think of myself as worthy [to do anything else] either. You
have to have low self-esteem to think that having sex in a porn film is
the most money you’ll ever make. So, yes, I am still angry. But in many
ways I’m at peace with that because this journey has helped make me the
person I am today.”
Meanwhile, Los Angeles County voters passed a ballot initiative in
November 2012 mandating porn actors wear condoms during sex scenes.
Reuters reports most U.S. porn movies are filmed in the county’s San
Fernando Valley, but Roxx doesn’t think the ballot will make a genuine
“The law only requires movies filmed in LA County to use condoms, but
when it comes to distribution they don’t care,” Lara says. “A film
without condoms can still be filmed in Montreal and distributed in LA
County. Besides, the majority of porn films are not made in LA County
anyway, so this gesture doesn’t really mean much.”
But if it saves one life, the ballot will have done its job. Just ask
Lara, who is proud that Mia Donavan’s documentary film Inside Lara Roxx
is indeed helping make a difference.
“If I can warn just one young girl about going into porn, then I’ve done
my job,” says Lara. “The money isn’t worth it and neither is the fame. I
always dreamed of being famous. Now I’m infamous, I guess.”
She was a cheap hooker in Canada that came 2 America 2 b FAMOUS!! Go back 2 Cannuck-ville, DUMBASS!!
