I have been writing my blog for over 7 years now. This blog has gotten me nice attention from fans and industry people alike. At one point this blog won, Porn Blog of the Year Award. Now I have re-invented my blog and the way I am communicating my thoughts and life. Besides writing the usual fun stories, I am also doing a youtube video blog called “Slivan” … Slivan is a combination of my porn director name “Ivan” and my real name “Slava” … The Slivans have been up for about two months now, so this blog will quickly catch up with them. Every other day I will posting 5 Slivans with their descriptions. Enjoy and please spread the word.

Today we shot for Twisty’s.

This morning I ventured into my old hood of the Fairfax District. Brooke Banner was doing a photo shoot for T.I.T.S. new clothing line.  I was a few minutes behind the schedule as this has been the usual m.o. for me.  Upon parking my truck, I quickly made my way to the parking meter.  While trying to navigate through the new credit card metering, an elderly lady approached me.  She looked European with a thick accent.  She had a rolling cart to her side and a sad confused looked.  Her English was choppy as her accent slurred the words to almost non-transcribable state. Nerves and frustration of her lack of communication seemed to way heavy on her as her voice quivered from word to word.

She was on the North 500’s block but needed to get to the South 500’s block. She kept mentioning these numbers as I tried to slow her down in hopes of understanding her better. I tried explaining to her how she needs to make her way to the Zero’s of the street then the numbers she needs will come. Then she explains in her now understandable accent, that she was looking for the “Russian Translation Service”. I smiled and asked if she spoke Russian, she said “yes”. And I proceeded to tell her that I can speak it as well. Her saddened demeanor now was lit up with a smile of comfort of “one of her own”.

I told her point of destination was about two miles away. She thanked me and asked me to call this agency. I confirmed the address and location. Then offered the lady a ride. She was adamant that I didn’t need to spend my time driving her. But I insisted in my broke Russian.

Now sitting in the truck, driving to the location. This wonderful little lady made my day, made me think and made me choke up. I was so moved by her that I had to put my sunglasses on just to communicate with her.

The lady is 80 years old. Has been in the United States for 15 years and has been fighting with the Russian Social Services for her retirement the entire time.  And has been told “America is a rich country, let them give you money.”  Sad, very sad. She lives in Long Beach and was out in West Hollywood, about 25 miles away from her area of residence. I met her around 10:40am, she was dropped off by her nephew in this area at 6:20am. And she has been wondering through these blocks for over four hours.  Mind you this story is being told to me by a tired, 80 year old, emotional lady. I was so moved by her. She then says, “god brought me to her today.” I smiled because at this point, me talking was not an option.  She kept thanking me and saying how no one would stop and listen to her. All I imagined this person with no phone or real ability to communicate wondering the streets for god knows how long. In the heat. With her cart and emotions on her sleeve.

I helped her 0ut of my truck and walked to the building. She offered to pay me, for which I declined. Once she was inside, I called that office to confirm she arrived and was safe. Afterward I made my way to continue the rest of my day. Driving I didn’t snap at people lacking social skills, I didn’t freak out on people being rude to me. All I thought about how this lady approached me. How she felt I made her day, how “god intervened”, how I helped her and emotionally changed her mood, heart and well being. But what she doesn’t realize is that what happened today was not someone making a difference in her life BUT how she made a difference in mine. I wasn’t brought to her, she was brought to me. I am not a knight in shining armor, she was the angel who opened my eyes.

It’s not what we can do for others because of our youthfulness, monetary accomplishments or what we control. It’s how we can open someone’s eyes, emotions and hearts. This wonderful lady in her moment of weakness made an impact with her soul in my life.

Thank you for validating the goodness hidden in so many ways under our busy, sometimes self absorbed lives. And you did pay me, in more ways then you can imagine.

I was going to post this blog back up. BUT cooler heads prevailed. We don’t need to act unprofessionally and keep up with internet drama. This person has bashed us publicly and has destroyed her reputation by being so unprofessional in her ways. Anyone is welcome to ask me about anything that occurred in this matter. I do not need to go public with private drama. I do not need to throw personal stones at people. In fact, I have received texts, calls, etc. from people who are embarrassed by this mess cause by this performer. And have resolved these issues and mass text lies by her. So if anyone is interested and has any questions about the blog or text threats to me by this person … I am more then happy to forward both in private. My email is iamivanxxx@gmail.com

There are a few industry people we as porn people consider “non-porn friends”. What does that mean a civilian might ask. What is a “civilian” one might ask as well. First of, porn people call non-porn people “civilians”. Yes, it’s funny but true. I guess Porn peeps think of themselves as military or a different crop of human, not sure. Anyways. Back to the “non-porn friends” topic. In porn we have many co-workers, friends, lovers and baby daddies come and go. Some just come in the industry for a quick buck then run away never to be heard from again.

For me, I get constant emails, myspace messages, texts, etc. from these missing from our porn lives.  It’s nice to hear from them and see how they are. So they are my “non-porn friends”. People you I meet in this crazy business … some crazy people, some normal people, some amazing people. These people stick around as friends, no matter if you ever put another shoot on their plate or a dollar in their pocket. These people genuinely like you and your company. You don’t get texts from them that sound like this “Hey how are you? Got any work for me?” or “Hey Babe! Miss ya! When you shooting again?”

People that you share time away from work become friends, no matter what industry any of us finally conclude our lives in.

Nikki Sexx is one of those people. From the first time I shot her for Creamplosions #3, we had a nice friendship. We, being Anabolic crew, were so impressed with her attitude, hotness and genuinely great personality, she became our teammate. Teammate in shoots and parties. We wanted to get her name out there because this chica deserved to be there making big movies, big money and mostly be recognized.  Any party we attended she was invited, any shoot I did with big butts or big boobs … I had her on my potential cast list. She even escorted me to the last 2 years to the AVN Awards. With this year her and I making the TIME Magazine website under celebrities.

So when Tom Byron gave me free reign to book some girls for my latest movie entitled CALL of BOOTY “Modern Whorefare” I jumped on the opportunity to call my friend. Of course as usual, she did an amazing job playing a webcam girl on the prowl for a hacker (Carlo Carrera). Below I am including loads of pictures from the set PLUS pics from past events with Nikki as well this year’s AVN Awards video and finally the set Behind the Scene video.

Many people don’t know about this culture of photographers who use these fun and interesting cameras created by a company called LOMOGRAPHY I have been a serious collector for years. The cameras they create are colorfully fun, stylistically wonderful and have unlimited uses. Each camera is unique in it’s design. And have various characterstics. Some are fisheye cameras, some take multi-shots on one frame, same take 8 individual stills at the same time  … and this goes on and on.  BUT the best part is they all shoot on FILM! Just visit www.Lomography.com to begin your love affair for these cameras.

I often bring some of my 7 LOMOs to my sets to take some fun pics.  Here is my set of LOMO pics from the last 4 years.

ENJOY … http://www.iamivan.com/lomography/index.html

We weren’t sure what was up for the 4th of July, so Kory and I decided to have a small little get together.  The plan was to record the entire day and have some really fun footage for a Puba project we are working on.  Kory handled the invites while I figured out what needed to be shot.

I wanted to make this something worth while for us. So I gathered up all my cool Lomography cameras as well as my still camera and of course two BTS video cameras. The morning of the BBQ I spent probably an hour figuring out my game plan for wardrobe.  Yeah, I am a total chick when it comes to clothes. I had to be “Ivan” which meant loads and loads of orange! Pretty much I CHOLOed out with an orange camouflage hat, orange and black Bengals jersey, ankle low orange shorts, knee high sucks and sandles.

Before leaving I loaded up my Holga camera and set-up my underwater housing for my fisheye 2 camera. Then off to the store I went. I bought 72 sodas and around 12, 500 chips/pretzels. Yes I counted them all … not really. Then I headed to 7-Eleven for a nice, cold, delicious bottle of Canada Dry Club Soda. On my way out of the store a cop pulled in. Being in my inner/outer cholo mode, I was like “yo vato youts better not make eye contact with me, holmes.” But as my inner cholo thoughts with a columbian or maybe italian accent got louder, I began to snarl in anticipation for the confrontation. I stopped by my truck, reached in my pocket and slowly pulled out the cold steel … of my key chain ring.  Then it happened! The “Man” the “Pig” the “Dirty Bacon” says, … “Cincinnati jersey? where are you from?” I was like “yo holmes, why you’ts always picking on me, you fudgin dirty badge wearing swine!” But all that scary talk came out as, “oh hi! I’ve been a Bengals fan since 1980.” in my biggest girl voice ever. I was in West Hollywood so it was probably more appropriate anyways.  The cop wound up being from Ohio, we chatted for a few and I headed to the BBQ.

The people slowly filed in as Kory aka Papa Puba began cooking for the peeps. Andrew and I ran around taking pictures of the girls. Asa ran around chasing her dog from eating human food. Natasha ran around chasing her vagina as she masturbating all over the place. At one point on the diving board. Ughhm, quick plug. To see that you better join www.NatashaNice.com son. I had my set-up of Lomography cameras and I tested out all the various fun techniques the cameras offered. The girls: Asa Akira, Emy Reyes, London Keyes and Natasha Nice, had their boobs out sunbathing away. Natasha was fully nekked for her hand’s easy access.

At one point Kory tried to teach his dog Mosley how to swim. But I guess Mosley is not one of those aquatic animals as he panicked and scratched up Papa Puba. Then we decided to play a prank on London. She brought her two dogs as well: Mimi (a scruffy little mut) and Zoey (a 3 pound chihuaha).  The plan was to record the entire event.  The event was going to be Kory pretending to take lil Zoey and jump in the pool with her. BUT we couldn’t do that with an actual cute little monster named Zoey. So we looked and looked for something small and brown that can play Zoey’s stunt double. Of course, guess who had the perfect item, yes me.  I carry an emergency stash of stuffed toys to give out after shoots.  And on this day I had a brown monkey in the truck.

And now for the EVENT: While people talked on the other side of the pool, Kory yells out, “attention everyone, I am going to jump in the pool with Zoey.” He is holding Zoey at that moment. London says, “don’t do that, Kory I’ll be mad at you. Stop.” Kory takes a few steps of a running start, enough to be hidden behind the house. He swamps Zoey with the brown monkey … then goes for it. Runs, jumps and dives in the deep in. We here a “no” then a loud “what!” I think that one came from Asa. While Kory is underwater, Andrew says, “Can Zoey hold her breath that long?!” Kory emerges from the bottom as Zoey comes running around the corner. London grabs Mimi and walks into the pool. She was the only one not fooled but the rest had priceless expressions and ALL caught on video.

I also brought in my new Puba Hockey jersey made for me by Joe (twitter.com/joevasion). I wanted to record a special shout out to him with Natasha. So the girlie gets naked, throws on my jersey and rubs herself down while saying thank you to Joe. By the way, most of the thank you happened with no clothes on, so the youtube clip below is limited in thank yous but sooner or later the uncensored version will be online. And again, Thank you Joe!

The food was delicious and it was a fun relaxing time for all. Later Dave the Driver arrived with Jackie Daniels and some other peeps. Then some “drunk” chicks showed up as we were leaving.  And the night was done. No fireworks for us, no fighting, no drama … just fun in the sun with friends.Now check out all the pics and the youtube video from the event.

My Day #14

Last week I spent the entire week shooting giant knockers.  After a long weekend of partying in San Diego (PubaParty.com) my week back was a bit nuts. Luckily Monday’s shoot was canceled so I could catch up on rest and some editing. But then Tuesday rolled around as I began production on my new movie for Tom Byron Pictures.  This new project is called “Double D Doctors”. And on the first day of production I had Kayla Paige and Bridgette B. I shot Kayla about 6 years ago for Extreme Associates, she looks better then ever. Kind of got my jollies off looking at her.  Funny thing about Bridgette, as I was driving by my house … I spot a hot big boob blonde walking a doggie.  As I pull up, it’s Bridgette and she’s a neighbor. Small world LA is. Bridgette is ridiculously hot and a hell of a performer.  In fact both girls did a great job, the stories were funny and the scenes were pretty damn hot.

Wednesday I went to the Angels game with Aurora Snow, Natasha Nice and Rog T. Pipe.  It was a fun time as Rog played strip Baseball trivia with the girls in my truck, prior to the game.  I got to see boobs and a baseball game. BUT the highlight of the day was Playboy Radio. Rog does a weekly segment on Night Calls hosted by Christy Canyon and Nicki Hunter.  As he began the radio show on the phone, he started discussing where he was and with whom. All of a sudden the phone was handed to me.  Christy wanted to chat with me … well more like flirt and hit on me. A while back Christy Canyon and I dated for a bit.  And I guess to this day she mentions me on the show as well as seem to have a permanent crush on me. Flattering to end, to a point she makes me nervous.  And her compliments put  permanent butterflies in my stomach for the rest of the day.

My Day #15

The second production day was a bit longer then the previous but the scenes were hilarious.  Angelina Valentine was scene one and was hot as balls.  I forgot my fake blood bottles at home so we had to adlib. A trip to McDonald’s for a small diet coke and a handful of ketchup was my order.  The drive-thru person looked at me weird but little did he know that ketchup was going to be used for his future spank material.  I think I might have found a horror homie in Angelina, who is in love with zombies and horror movies. Now for Daphne Rosen, I let her do her thing and boy oh boy, we have some of the funniest shit I have shot in any of my porn movies. She played a doctor with OCD and it was priceless stuff.

My Day #16

Friday I ventured to Anabolic to hopefully get paid. But um, yeah we know the story.  So I grabbed some of my office belongings and went home.

Saturday rolled around as we had a PUBA shoot for the first time in a while.  We shot at Nick Manning’s house, enjoying his banter and hockey video game at full volume.  I think I shot the hottest solo to date.  Freaking London Keyes is pretty bad ass at solos.  And then her and Bridgette B did one of the baddest GG scenes since we began shooting PUBA content.  Good stuff to end a great-long-hot week of shooting.
