Concept Video… AUSSIE

This concept piece is inspired by the aesthetics seen in Western Sydney Suburbia featuring François Sagat as a third generation Middle Eastern man / woman.

The piece explores the conflicting coexistence of elements in society; modern vs. traditional, men vs. women, Middle East vs. White Australia. Remarkably though, all these elements constitute the fabric of Australian multiculturalism.

Despite the initial boundaries, may they be visual, cultural, sub-cultural, religious, ethnic, gender or sexual, our common goals and aspirations unite us despite the individual fears and stereotypes we have about the other.

In this piece François Sagat reflects on the battle of masculinity vs. femininity, traditional vs. modern society and how this transition from traditional to modern created a whole sub-culture which has (unfortunately) become a victim of discrimination by both traditional and modern sides.
This piece is not a reflection on Islam, or Muslim people in Australia. On the contrary, it is an abstract work of art interpreting battles of identity that today’s youth are fighting whilst in the process of determining who they are.

As a society it is our responsibility to accept each other, and not live by the prejudices and stereotypes of our forebears, but see beyond the veils and smoke.
We must open our eyes and see the humanity in every person we encounter and learn to accept them wholly, seeing the way they are as integral and vital in our journey together – the one that that we call life.

Goodbye, my friend.

Erik Rhodes/ James, Someone I had a crush on the first time we met more than 6 years ago… so funny, impressive, charming and very clever…

I was one of his first readers, following his blogs and stories. A misunderstood man in some ways, but so analytic, specific, with his own imagination, world and a huge sensibility that I’ve always respected. A sweet big man to me.

We’ve worked together on 2 projects and I always took the chance to interact with a very cool and nice guy, full of stories to tell …

I wish we could have been closer friends … 30 is terrible age to die

I’m really sorry for his brother, parents and all his friends, co-workers…his memory will stay intact …I will never forget, James.

You were already a legend. RIP.

Gay Comic Geek reviews Incubus 2!

Last month Gay Comic Geek reviewed Incubus on his blog and on his Mancast Channel. I posted about his review here.

This month he does Incubus 2.

I love how he really took time to watch frame by frame to catch all the clues that I left. Wonderful to see someone enjoy it as much as he did. And he’s cute. He also was able to see what I was saying about myself and about porn and my place in it. I don’t want to say he got it 100% exact. But I hope people watch it and see what they get out from it.

You can get Incubus 2 here on DVD.

Click here to watch both movies at the Titanmen Website.

How they made my ass…

If you are reading using an iPad or something that can’t see this video, watch it on my Mancast Channel.

I don’t even know what to say about this. The video is funny especially when JC says “I’m going to do Francois’s ass.”

Bruce Cam shot this video. We laugh a lot making this. It’s funny but there was also something a bit hot about being in that position while someone took a cast. And I didn’t see it until now.

And now I’m wondering if anyone will send me a picture of themselves using it. Haha.

you can get my ass cast here at the Titan Store.
