    Wow, what a lovely piece. The magic is working here, boys. Congrats.

  2. Very well put together. I have to admit, Duke’s got one heck of a presence in front of a camera. And for the record, back when I was a youngster, some of the series’ Duke wrote for Skinemax (whether he hates them now or not), I used to watch. Never would have guessed, I’d virtually meet the writer one day.

      Occasionally, I’ve had others say what you do about Skinemax, Jeffrey. They were just jobs to me, and they were never meant to become part of my official resume, but I foolishly put my name on the shows, thinking no one would ever know or care.

      But I’ve said all that before, and I’m glad you got something out of them. I suppose, for me, the equivalent would be meeting someone at Playboy who’d shot a centerfold I’d, well, admired as a kid. In fact, I met one of those centerfolds, who was dating an acquaintance, and she was nice enough, though obsessed with money and prone to entering “sexy” mode whenever a camera appeared. I also “met” another centerfold when she responded to a remark I’d made about her on the TNB boards — but that’s a story covered in Subversia.
