Why do people continue to get involved in that kind of life when time after time it is proven that there is rarely a happy ending? Sad.
They're dropping like flies!
Is it just the general shallowness/non-rewarding factors of the industry that produce so many suicides and drug overdoses?
Oh well. Next.
Some trick probably wouldn't return his text or something.
"He was a major influence on the career of Erik Rhodes, who he directed and then mentored as a director."
The blind leading the blind?
I worked with John before he started his porn career. He was a sweet guy, just out of college working as an administrative assistant in marketing for a major studio. My job changed and I lost track of him. Saw his obit notice yesterday and was saddened. Never knew of his porn career path; Bruno is a different last name from the time I knew him. But I saw his picture and recognized his eyes. Rest in peace, John. I wish his story had a different ending.
Just another guy in LA
Read a long tribute from a friend who indicated he had suffered depression, made an earlier attempt with pills and was having difficulty finding work because the studios were letting porn stars 'direct'. Shame since he seemed to have quite a lot of directing experience under his belt.
[quote]He was a major influence on the career of Erik Rhodes,
And look how well that turned out!
Can't say I've heard of him.
I've heard of John Rutherford and Matt Sterling, but this name just draws a blank.
People are calling them "Directors" now? Give us a break.
He was the Lead Casting Couch Tester.
The "studios" barely exist anymore. It's all about Corbin Fisher and Sean Cody and rhose sites would get a dalmation to direct their scenes if they could. I mean, how hard is it to point a camera up a guy's ass?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
