Fun with Numbers!!

Naughty Machinima is the topic of the day. You see... some people reported I was this "Jack" person on NM so I was contacted by the owner Muse. More than likely the same person who created four new accounts on NM last Tuesday and gave all my movies 1 star while giving theirs all five stars. 

So Muse and I had a little talk...and one of the things he is looking to improve is cutting back on the amount of bandwidth used. Some are obviously using more than others... maybe to a point where they are abusing it.

Oh I know... Rayven, you are just being a bitch again.  Well, let's crunch some numbers, ok?

Person #1 - Uploads a 12 minute movie - It's the only movie they upload in a week.

Person #2 - Uploads five 6 minute movies in a week. 30 total minutes.

As you can see Person #2 is clearly using more server space. Which once again goes back to my statement about taking more time to produce quality movies and not trying to rush them out only to start on the next.

Rayven, how can you tell us what we can upload? I can't but if we continue as we  are then Naughty Machinima will have to change to be more cost efficient which might bring limitations to what we can and cant do.

When I joined SL Porn people were bitching about Naughty Machinima being down... well, I'm telling you right now when things change don't blame Muse. Nobody is giving a cent to keep the web site up and running.. everyone is using it for free. The more space used... the more expensive it gets. An he said this will be one of the things he will be looking into to improve the site.

Views of movies on Naughty Machinima have become of joke. When I first got into this I always wondered why one movie might of got more views than the next.

Last week I noticed a movie had. 482 views in a 10 hour span. - So when I saw this I went and looked back at all the movies released before that one to find one that had similar numbers. Finally I found one... but this movie was a week old. So basically this movie in 10 hours had more views   than other movies did in a week. That's right, in 10 hours this movie had twice the views as most movies 4-5 days older than it. So let's just say NM did have 482 different viewers in that 10 hour  Wspan. Am I lead to believe they came to NM picked this one movie out. Watched only that one movie and left while watching no other movies?  Some of you people make it WAY too obvious you are fluffing your movie views. This doesn't just apply to directors I notice a pattern with a few actresses who movies get a "extra" couple hundred bumps in views if they are in it compared to someone else.
What's the point really? What do you gain from this? Personally as a director I like to use it as a gauge to see what my movie is doing compared to others and see what movies (or what kind) of movies people are watching. That is pointless now because some people must boost their egos by hitting the browser a hundred times trying to make it appear their movie is "the thing to watch"

Oh yea and BTW, Muse also did mention views might be restricted too...

Once again don't blame him... don't blame me for being the messenger.. blame those abusing the system.

Who Knew

I have a new video - it's a video I did to the song by Pink - "Who Knew". Tuesday I couldn't stop watching the video to this song. This was a very emotional video for me and I actually cried a few times. The original idea I had for this video was a Bonnie and Clyde type relationship, but I wanted people who watched it to feel how I felt about this song so I switched it to a husband and wife.  

I dedicated this video to my Grandmother. In the song there is a line about three years from now.. my Grandmother passed away a little over three years ago. She died of stomach cancer and over the final two months of her life I watched her fade away to a point she could hardly keep her eyes open and was very week. When she passed I was ready for it. I was actually pleased she did pass as I didn't want her to suffer anymore, but as time passes you forget the bad things. You remember the good things... and it's those good things you miss. I do miss her so much. 

After I chose the to have the husband as a cop... I started to think about all the wives, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters who lost someone in the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks. For a lot of these people it happened exactly that way.

This was a very emotional video to make, but it was something I had to do. I wanted to do something that made people think and send a positive message.

Watch out Godzilla the Princess takes on Japan

Back to exploring Second life.... It's funny how things change so much so soon. I went back to some of the places I first visited in second life. I had a link to a place call "Xanadu dreams" It really was a amazing place. It had a fantasy/fairytale theme to it. Tons of great romantic animations. Swings.. a dance floor right in the middle. I teleported back there today and next thing you know Im falling to my death from the sky! I survived but not before my second life flashed before my eyes. The picture above is from Japan's Tempura Island. I love taking pictures at the different locations that I visit. The fall colors were so beautiful I thought this would make a great picture.While in Japan I dropped Serenity Kristan's name, as she is big in Japan, and received two tickets to a sumo match.

My confession

After a good nights sleep I have this to say. Once again I'm being 100% straight up honest speaking from the heart.

I got into this because it looked like fun and for the most part. Recent events in which I have been part in and take responsibility for seems to have brought negative energy to the group the **The Pornstars**. I'm not going to lie... There is less talk less chatter in general.

I'm a creative person my nature and a very competitive one. The creative side of me is what drew me to this, but the competitive side has taken control of Rayven Baily and has lead to her destruction.  I'm very proud of my movies - I actually watched them all today -  and I can honestly say there isn't much I would change about them. Watching them, gave me a good sense at where I *once* was and how far I have fallen. I'm not proud of my recent actions. This is not me. An I have had a big part in destroying what I built. I only have myself to blame.

I wanted to make a change for the better. I wanted to make **The Pornstars** and SL Porn something more people could share in This is why I spoke up about taking that extra little effort into your movies. I guess I tried to make myself a martyr thinking I could change things for the better.. but taking a stance for quality turned into a personal battle with others.

I love creativity and creative people. I LOVE old architecture of buildings. I have taken everything Emanuelle Jamseson and others have worked hard to build and instead of making it better.. I have done the complete opposite. I have become a cancer.

The whole princess thing I do is a roleplay - I created it because I thought it would be fun and funny. Story goes like this. I worked with this cute little blonde girl years ago. We became friends and even fooled around a bit. She used to do the "princess" things.. but didn't say "here comes the princess" but did say she was a princess. Then after her and I fooled around well... she sort of got around. Managers, follow employees and customers... she eventually left to take another job thinking she was moving on to bigger an better things. Actually she went to work on a cruise ship but failed a physical and never got the job because she ended up picking up a STD. Though it was a roleplay... maybe in general I have become to much of a princess myself. 

I read that notecard Scooby sent out about our  private conversation and it was almost as if I have become someone I don't even recognize myself. I guess it was like looking into a mirror and seeing something you didn't exactly like. I'm not going to comment on why or how I got to that point, but all I can do it change. 

Finally - I want to personally say I'm sorry to Emanuelle who I can't say a bad thing about and I can only learn from and try to some day be as great as she is, though I have come to the conclusion that is impossible level to reach, but I can learn from. An I will start by shutting my mouth and observing her in all her greatness.

 I can only hope that in the eyes of some of you I can change your opinion of me ad gain your respect again. I wont ask for it that's too easy. I will work hard at trying to earn it back. 

An going back to my post about who is a "star". Am I a star? Let's just say this if this was real the only work I could find at this time would be on VH1 and dancing with the stars. (which that show title is pretty misleading)

Twinkle Twinkle little star..

Sometimes I wonder how you got to who you are. That's right.. let's cut the bullshit. This post will be strictly my unbiased opinion of things in the SL Porn world two plus month in now. Some people might not like it.. some people might think it's dead on. Just warning you... I'm pulling no punches here.

When I got in this months ago I was lead to believe they were certain people who were the "Stars" of SL Porn industry. I'm starting to form my own opinion and I must say it's not what I was lead to believe. 

Let me first give you my definition of a "Star" - If you are a straight Actor/actress and that's all you do. You are not a star. I don't care if you have been in 60 movies. Let's face it... to be a actor/actress in SL porn requires no acting ability. You sit on a pose ball. As a director I can go anywhere in SL grab someone and they could do the same thing. If you are an actor or actress and have a blog,  shoot erotic photos that ADD to the industry then yes maybe. 

Example #1 - EmeeLee Ember - When I got into SL Porn it was almost as if we passed each other going though the same door. As she left for a bit I sort of hit the scene. When I got into it I heard she was the "it girl". I thought she has a very good appearance and I could see why she could be at the top. I waited and waited to see her in a new movie and I didn't know she was gone. Not until she actually got in touch with me about being the feature in Stripped and Teased. On her return, Emee  hasn't had the same offers as prior. That's because I do believe things are changing. So now she has started Stripped and Teased and even produced her first movie - which BTW was a very good effort for a first time director. It's just a shame she will be leaving again soon, but when she returns I expect Emee to be at the top of that list because she has the drive. 

Some people off the top of my head I do feel are the real stars of this industry are:

Emanuelle Jameson -  Let's face it she started this.. is a great director, has a very popular blog which is informative about what is happening in the industry. Even when she is not doing movies she is doing something. 

Serenity Kristan - Yes, she is my friend, but that's not why I rank her here. She is a improving director who just does not settle for your average movie. She is trying things to evolve SL porn movies into not just good porn, but great movies.  Let's face it.. we all pretty much seen all the sex animations in SL. You want to see two people fucking, go to Orgy forest. Movies with stories and plots are what will draw more people to SL Porn. That is what she brings to the table. She is very creative and on the cutting edge just check out her 3D work on her blog.

Ivori Faith - Also one of my friends. Ivori has been in her fair share of movies... but it seems that is never enough lol. She has an acting career - does interviews and movie reviews for Stripped and teased and does them in a very honest constructive way. One thing I learned about this industry is not everyone is 100% honest. There are some that will say just about anything to get in a movie and kiss the director's ass (among other things).  In short there are some pretty fake people. Not Ivori and I respect her for that and she is by far someone that is making a difference in this industry. One more thing about Ivori. I had another Tgirl contact me just after my release of Rayven and Serenity sexcellent adventure Part II asking if I was casting another Tgirl anytime soon. I said no - Ivori is my TGirl on call and only one on my payroll.

Pixie Rain - I met her once while checking out Sleepy's new house and in passing told her how I liked her movies. Her movies are very different, but at the same time very brilliant. Let's face it the director's are the real "Stars" of SL Porn. You write what the actor/actresses say, you edit, you come up with the movie ideas. She is one of the best. 

Alyassa Drechsler - Have you ever seen her movies? Enough said... they span such a wide variety too. How she comes up with some many different ideas for movie plots amazes me.

A few I do feel have potential - 
HaileyMarie RedRose - I think you will be hearing good things from her soon. From talking to her she is going about it the right way and has a plan. She has the drive and soon she will be producing her own movies. 

Ce Ce LuminosCe Ce has returned from where I don't know.. but returned with a few movies with some creative plots. I look forward to hearing more from Ce Ce.

Now on to the industry itself. I think in the past there was a group of people involved in SL Porn who were bascially just happy to make a movie and put it out there for their friends to see. Whether it took a week or and hour to make.... anything was good. I do believe there is another group forming (which I am proud to say I am part of) that feels you should be doing more. Seven movies in seven days is not putting any effort into anything. Especially when you use the same poses ball animations for three of those movies. Uh hello, don't you think we want to see something different besides the same movies, same animations with a different actor/actress?     The cookie cutter - mass production of movies are not going to do anything in a way to make this industry better.

Example - I got into this because I saw Emanuelle's "Perfect stranger" at the Keyhole club cinema. I was drawn in and blown away by how well that was done. Let's say I would have seen some mass producted 4 minute fuck flick rushed out with a bad edit. I wouldnt be typing this right now. 

How many other people are we turning away because their first experience was some rushed out film by some director just so he can start on the next one?  Wouldn't you rather have someone watch your film and them say "Damn, I want to do that." That is the ultimate compliment. 

This is not RL Porn.. Yes, I can watch a simple two people fucking in real life. Visually it attracts me. In second life you can see that everywhere. Do you honestly feel you are showing someone something they havent seen before? If so then you live in a fantasy world.. way beyond second life.

Gone Fishing featuring Chip Myers

New movie out Gone Fishing now on Naughty Machinima This movie is footage I cut from my movie Rayven and Serenity's Sexcellent Adventure. I ending up doing a re-shoot with Brady Neiro do to lack of time and I wasnt happy with this animations with this dock. (guy didnt use only tongue when licking pussy) among other things. It's a take off a real life porn movie which uses cheesy lines. I hope you enjoy it, Im happy with the song I picked... I sort of stumbled upon it and it gives it that 70's sort of theme. Plus I like the ending of the song and how it ends :)
