This past weekend the porn community held their annual Internext-Expo 2009 in South Florida. While there were no gay parties Thursday night, FabScout Entertainment, along with CyberSocket, hosted a VIP party at Boardwalk Bar in Fort Lauderdale on Friday that had a total of 130 attendees, including some of the biggest executives and websites in the gay porn industry. Partial sponsorship was also provided by Swiss Navy Lube, Fleshjack.com, Badpuppy.com and Rentboy.com. Saturday afternoon was the 19th annual Poverello bowl-a-thon at Manor Lanes. Once again the community rallied together to raise close to $50,000 for this great charity that helps the needy! Following the bowl-a-thon Sidelines featured the after party, where everyone went to relax, kick back, rehash all the fun moments of the day and have a few cocktails. Thanks to Laurie, Marty and Jennifer for providing free Humpy’s Pizza and for hosting this party!

On August 15 – 18, 1969, The Woodstock Music Festival changed the world. The three days of peace, love and rock ‘n’ roll in upstate New York had much more meaning than hippies gathering around to party. It was a cultural experience. It was the grooviest event in music history. People came from all over to watch musicians like Santana, The Who, Jimi Hendrix,
Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Jefferson Airplane, Blood Sweat & Tears, Joan Baez, Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. Vendors sold crafts and Vietnam War protesters spoke about the war. It was a cultural experience of the troubled decade. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival invites you to have a similar experience at Cinema Paradiso. The day will feature concert films featuring many of the same bands, plus a local artists’ gallery, organic food and an acoustic jam and drum circle – so bring your guitar, banjo, mandolin, bongos or other instrument and join in. Free movie passes and other items from the new film, Taking Woodstock, will be awarded throughout the event. Directed by Ang Lee, Taking Woodstock will be theatrically released on August 28th. For more information about the film visit FilmInFocus.com/FocusFeatures/film/Taking_Woodstock/ The 40th anniversary celebration of Woodstock will be held both inside and outside in the courtyard at Cinema Paradiso from 2:00 pm to Midnight. Free parking in the courthouse parking garage and after 6:00 pm at meters. Admission is free so come on out and feel the love. For more information visit FLIFF.com or call 954-525-FILM (3456).
