This week's Quickies post isn't so quick seeing that it is a couple of days behind its normal Monday schedule. But hopefully, you'll like the item covered later in the post that was provided by Shedd's Spot west coast bureau.
First up, today, Feb. 11th, is Burt Reynolds' 73rd birthday. One of Reynolds' comeback roles in the 1990's was playing Jack Horner, a porn director, in Boogie Nights. That little tidbit is a great segway to this next item....
Porn star Stormy Daniels has been approached in regards to running for the U.S. Senate in 2010. She is now considering a run against Louisiana Senator David Vitters in that state's Republican primary. Daniels is orginally from Louisiana and she has already come up with several catchy campaign slogans, including "Stormy Daniels, screwing people honestly". This is yet another story Shedd's Spot will be following closely in the coming months, and with plenty of commentary. In the meantime, you can learn more about Daniel's possible candidacy in following interview clip and this CNN.com article. Or, you can go directly to DraftStormy.com.
If you would like to learn more about Stormy Daniels' current profession, watch the six part HBO documentary Pornucopia. Honestly, it's not for the faint of heart or those who are easily offended by adult entertainment. But, the series explores the history of the adult (porn) movie industry, the current film and internet market, and fetish & specialty porn, among other topics. Several episodes include interview clips with Daniels where she discusses different aspects of the adult movie industry.
