All posts for the month September, 2009

Well, now, that was a pleasure to wake up to!

One of the Yahoo Groups that I’m at has an annual “Fan Favorites Contest”…Rope_Dreams, specifically…here’s the address:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Rope_Dreams/?yguid=192089596

Well…this year, your very own “Tolstoy” made it to the next round of the competition for “Best Rigger/Photographer”!!  Better still, I and my other winners (Jerry, the “Badman” of NaughtyTies, and James Bertoni of ModelsTied) all recieved “byes” in the competition and have all moved to the FINALS!!

This is a real KICK for me as it’s the first time I’ve recieved any kind of nomination in anything for my rigging/photography work…the fact that it’s a FAN voting contest makes it all the sweeter! 

If you’re not a member at Rope_Dreams, sign up and give ol’ Tolstoy a vote in the finals!  Right now, because of the “bye”, voting in the finals won’t happen until Round 2 of three other competitions (Fave Model, Nicest Breasts, and Best Legs) has completed around October 5th, but you can still join up and vote in those categories!!

“Best Rigger/Photographer”…sigh.  😉

“Tolstoy”

It just ocurred to me that there’s many a place out there that ol “Tolstoy” has pages at…here’s some linkage…visit me often!

(Hit those top 3 especially, k?  😉 )   The YouTube page was an expirement…I wanted to see if I could advertise there and not get booted off…I nearly did.  😉  It is a good catalouging of some of my fave YouTube community bondage clips that don’t seem to get deleted, tho.  😉

“Tolstoy”

Ah, me.  Just edited my last Angel set.  Gotta tell you, this is a sad moment for me…she’s officially retired and there’s no chance of working with her to create more bondage magic…damn the luck.  Ah, well…enjoy these shots!!

“Tolstoy”

“What’re you going to do with me?” Angel

The shirt she was wearing that day…just HAD to take this shot…lol.

Kidnapped after a great game of pool… Angel

Darling Nikki

Ah, Nikki!   As I said in the entry with both of them, Nikki’s shoot happened on the day I found out about my sister having cancer.  Let’s be honest here…I was a fucking wreck.  Worried half out of my mind and sick to my stomach (tho that might have come from the fact that when the news first hit, around breakfast, I couldn’t eat…lol), I just told myself to gut it out…it’ll be good for me.

I couldn’t have been more right.

Being in Stacie and Nikki’s company that night completely cleared my head and got me back on the proper path again…they helped me to forget a terrible day and got me back where I needed to be.  Thanks to both of you for that, by the way.

So…where to start?  Nikki’s fairly new to bondage, but you wouldn’t know it by working with her…she took my ropework in stride and gave me some “damsel” expressions even I couldn’t believe.  I seriously think she had the “damsel” thing rocking just as good as Vivian did when I worked with her…that’s how impressed I was.

Gorgeous eyes, huh? Nikki Darling

We started out with the above outfit and a simple chair tie.   It may look simple from this angle, but I rocked it on the back (you’ll see that when the pics hit the site).   She didn’t complain at all, and took every pass of the rope in stride.   I was really impressed with her…what a doll.

Nikki Darling in Gold…

I told her I wanted a dress for the second set…she found a honey of one!  Again with the expression…check her face in this shot!  Don’t you just want to jump in and save her?  😉   She’s definitely a tape gag model…I tried a cleave just before we shot this and didn’t like it.  She told me I wouldn’t, bless her…lol.  She knows her looks and what works best for her…definitely a good quality for a model.  I’ll hire her again many a time just for that self-expertise.  But I still will try a ball gag on her…just for looks.  I just have to know how it looks on her… 😉

She’s a sweetheart…and one of the models I regret having to gag, as her voice is just as sweet as she is.   LOL…in communications after the shoot, she told me I was a “peach”.  That got the first, “Awwwwww…that was sweet,” from me that I’ve delivered in months…more than likely a step up from just a “Teddy Bear” (which is what I usually get) too, right?  🙂  Definitely a wonderful gal and somebody I’m loving the idea of working with again…and again…and again…and…..

“Tolstoy”

PS: Random thoughts to close this out…”Totino’s” pizzas, tho small by frozen-pizza-industry-standards, are still the yummiest things out there.  Gobbled down one as I was typing this, and I’m satisfied…even more so than when I get a cardboard pizza like a Red Baron for three times the price.     Word.      And ice cream sandwiches are the fucking BOMB!  Those come next… 😉

Meh.  Slow day, so I’m taking the opportunity to catch up on the archiving of my stuff.  Putting the material on disc…some on cd, some on dvd depending on how much material each model has.

A guy at Facebook offered to buy both.  Wasn’t sure how to take that…was he just asking for prices on material, or was he a rich dude who wanted to buy everything I’ve shot in 3 years time?

One could only wish…le sigh.  How much would I even charge someone to buy everything I’ve shot over the last three years, anyway?!  Ponders…..

Gonna be thinking about this for at least three weeks now…thanks, a LOT!

“Tolstoy”

Gonna be light on the words and humor…if you’ve read the “Angel” post you’ll understand…until I come to terms with it all, my heart’s just not into the humor…I know you understand.Shot with Stacie again and her LOVELY friend Nikki.  It’s been a while since I did a 2 model shoot…forgot how much FUN they are.  The two of them really propped up my sagging spirit and helped me to smile a bit even tho I’m scared out of my mind for my sis.

Some samples…

The following is a reposting from my Yahoo Group.  It’s relevant here as well, so I thought I should share with you  here as well.     http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TucsonTied/

Angel

Well, now that my emotions have calmed down, I can write about this. Brace
yourselves, this may get long or full of sap, tho…lol.

You all know about Angel. Model of mine…we first started as producer and
model, grew to become friends, became better friends, then “adopted” each other
and now think of each other as brother and sister…even call each other that in
all our communications between each other.

Hadn’t heard from her in a bit, so I wrote her to see how she was doing. Got a
scary answer back from her this morning…she has Cancer.

Scary moments for me…had no other info, just “Cancer”. This hit me just as
hard as it did when my blood-Uncle was diagnosed with it…I panicked a bit, let
some raw emotion go.

She called me just before I went into work…it’s bad, but not as bad as I
thought. Ovarian cancer, caught in the very early stages. She next sees the
docs on the 8th of next month and they decide the next phases of the treatment:
remove the ovaries, chemo, or what’s necessary. For the most part, she feels
fine right now (had an IM convo with her while at lunch too)…so far so good.

I’d like to make a call-out to the Group to send her some well-wishes. If
you’re a fan, or would just like to send her some good wishes, either send them
here (I’ll forward them on to her) or you can send them to my e-mail:

immortal6265@yahoo.com

and I’ll see to it that she gets them.

Thank you, gang…and keep my “sis” in your prayers.

Sincerely,
“Tolstoy” Tony
