I had Donovan Freberg in my blogroll (see right column) from when I first got this blog. Of course, I hadn’t realized that he’d switched formats to primarily porn about 2 months ago or so. There was even a brief spike in blog activity about it.
Anyway, he’s notable because as a teenager, he was in a very well-known TV ad for Encyclopedia Britannica, playing a high school student doing research for a paper. I actually remember seeing the ads on TV when they ran. His format switch wasn’t too sudden, I suppose: I just hadn’t been following his blog. The recent spike in interest happened because he produced a porn DVD – he had the, err, non-participant part of a professor of sex, instructing couples on techniques.
If you’re wondering why his blog’s dropped off my blogroll, that’s why. Not that I have anything against porn, but his blog is much more a marketing instrument for himself, and a revenue stream (from click referrals).
Picture below is Jake, who belongs to one of the cast members of the play I was just in.
