In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Good thing they put that footnote about gay roles being available (maybe job placement services also?), since there just might be a few more males than females willing to pay money to be trained in the subtleties of porn acting.

Hmmm.....someone's been inside a porno shop recently, and it's not just me. I saw that same flyer in a "adult" bookstore recently.

Don McArthur made the joke I was going to make. Dammit.

Luke Knolls had the best quote: "Adult Film School covered everything, top to bottom."

Charlton, you really must try harder to be a good person. The blackness of your humour bespeaks an underlying nihilism disturbing in one so politically right-wing.
