Memorial Day 2016



I would like to send much love and gratitude to active, former, and fallen members of our US military. Earlier today I visited a local cemetery to reflect on the meaning of the Memorial Day holiday and encountered a plaque featuring this profound quotation from Calvin Coolidge:

“The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten.”

Good afternoon,

I would like to thank Mikey, Anonymous Stranger, and Brad for the lovely gifts I received earlier this week. Muuuaahhh!!! As always your thoughtfulness and generosity really touch me. Brad, I think I do tend to be an autodidact although I needed to look up the word to make sure.. lol Over the past two weeks I have been doing a lot of reading. Last night I started The Killer Inside Me, did not put it down til 2am even though I had to rise before 8am. Book has a compulsively readable, disturbing quality to it. Usually I know exactly how I feel about a book but this one is throwing me. Felt like Lou Ford was sleeping with me last night even after I closed the tome and put it on my night table – very eery. Thank you, as always, for an astonishing array of reading material. Anonymous Stranger, I am very much looking forward to wearing the new cosmetics and breathtaking Lejaby lace shorts at an upcoming shoot. And, Mikey, I probably don’t need to tell you that I’ve already started putting the Subway/Starbucks cards, eye patches, and lovely but casual T-shirt dress to excellent use. I will save a few patches as props but they are serving me very well both in the shower and in bed when I need to keep eye covered – much more comfortable than metal mask given by hospital. A million thank yous to all of you. May your generosity revisit you soon and forever.

Above pics come from April 13 shooting of soon-to-be-released Sonnet Noir. Rest assured, femme fatale definitely pays for her crimes against humanity:

Justice always triumphs over depravity. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. Much love and gratitude to the active and former members of the US military on this Memorial Day weekend.

Good evening,

On this night of the full flower moon I greet you from home. Right now I am uploading footage from May 6 shooting of Barricade (pics above.) Early in the morning of May 4 I had discovered that my right eye had gone blind. Staying calm I found the name of a local ophthalmologist and booked an appointment. He could not see me until 1:40pm so I consulted Dr. Google in the interim. Try searching “sudden blindness” and you will see a wide range of causes for the condition which range from fairly minor to de facto death sentences. Fortunately, and I just said another prayer of thanks, later that afternoon I learned that I had mysteriously developed a dense cataract in my right eye.  Doc referred me to county hospital, cautioned me to have surgery as soon as possible because he suspected that cataract was starting to liquefy. I delayed hospital visit so I could shoot six custom videos booked long before in advance. On Tuesday, May 10 I drove to the emergency room where I stayed busy in the waiting area by writing promotional text for Barricade:

“Black lacquer gloves commit
Astonishingly slick
Ritualistic hit,
Reveal hard, metal dick
In cruelly intimate
Collective mind warp trick.
Armed, dangerously fit
Dame commandeers gold brick,
Escapes to darkened pit.. ”

Barricaded inside dingy motel bandit celebrates heist with rhyming verses, champagne, ill-gotten gains. Still clad in tactical gear – crotch boots, gloves, G-string, mask – she anticipates arrival of local constabulary. Eminent shootout promises dark thrills at supremely high cost. Gold bubbles float from champagne flute into brain. Stepping in front of full-length mirror outlaw..

At this point nurse summoned me to private area where she checked my vitals, prepared me for doctor. ER doc informed me a bit snippily that cataracts are “never urgent”. She seemed to change her tune after examining my eye. Soon a different nurse was leading me to ophthalmology department upstairs. Several doctors probed eyeball, performed preliminary procedure, scheduled me for first available surgery date. To make the long story short I underwent surgery, fully conscious, this past Monday. As operation progressed voices of two female doctors expressed puzzlement over something which I did not fully comprehend. The following morning one of the surgeons removed bandage which covered eye. “I can see!” my spirit blurted as shaky room sort of came into focus. “I was scared going into that surgery.” doctor told me. “We had expected to find damage underlying the cataract but we did not see any.” Elaborating further she explained that she knew of only one other patient who had developed a blinding cataract in a short span of time for no apparent reason. Now I understood what she and the other doctor had been discussing as I lay on the operating table.

For the past five days I have mostly been staying home and dumping large quantities of prescription drops into eye which looks sort of bloody and tortured right now. Vision is improving by the day and I thankfully anticipate return to 20-20. Want to see what a cataract looks like? Click here to enlarge pic and check out white disc obscuring right pupil. During video shoots I mostly tried to keep it covered with hair but did not always succeed. Whole experience still seems a bit surreal but I feel intensely grateful for wonderful outcome, great medical care I received at Harbor UCLA Hospital, my friend Paul who rose well before dawn to drive me to surgery.

Hope everyone is doing great. I am going to step outside and admire full moon but will return later to answer post comments.

XO Tanya

P.S. Wow!!! Gigantic, neon orange moon just popped out above tranquil ocean. Looks so awesome!

Dark Sky Dawning














Dawn breaks over wasted city,
Altered landscape, withered roses.
Radiant sunlight exposes
Knight errant, devoid of pity,
Searching rubble which encloses
Kingdom’s devastated palace,
Yesterday’s aforethought malice.
Dulled by arrogance knight closes
Arduous quest for Queen’s chalice,
Wrecks surviving architecture,
Navigates out of prefecture
Into region far less callous.
Next year brings sublime emergence:
Goblet raised, Queen toasts resurgence.


Tanya awakens, recalls odd dream with stunning clarity: dark knight, wasted kingdom warned of defilement and, most disconcertingly, she had recognized herself as beaten but resurgent Queen. Always mindful of omens Tanya knows that she should brace for a challenge, possibly an ignominious defeat looming in near future. “Not today though.” blonde catfighter thinks dismissively. “That newbie – what was her name? – has no chance against me in the ring.” Mere hours later exotic upstart Shia traps Tanya in excruciating camel clutch, giving champion ample time to repent arrogance. Loss seems fated but Tanya recalls that Queen in dream had eventually mounted a comeback..


Tanya Danielle and newcomer Shia star in Dark Sky Dawning, an interracial catfight melee containing camel clutch, Boston crab, double-toed leglock surfboard, hammerlock, figure four headscissors, test of strength, schoolgirl pin, nipple torture, full nelson, forced submissions, trash talk, imperious victor. Co-produced by HH. Download Dark Sky Dawning at today.

Good evening,

I have returned from another road trip. First of all, I would like to thank the extremely generous souls who contributed to my friend Juan’s recovery fund. It takes an incredibly selfless person to help a stranger and I know that Juan’s family really appreciates all donations right now. By very odd coincidence yesterday I ended up at same hospital where Juan began his healing process. Not ready to discuss circumstances but I feel great today and have received an excellent prognosis from doctors. Sorry for mystery but I need a little time to process everything. Pink “birthday” photos come from May 6 custom video shoot and top pic provided inspiration for the “murderous flowers” which appear in text description for Blonde Imperium. Hope everyone is doing well. I shall return in a few days to answer post comments.

Pharaoh’s Secret

Pharaoah’s Secret

Per one awe-inspiring black night
Herald of Osiris
Activates empowering light,
Realigns rich matrix,
Armors mortal in sublime rite.

Overarching helix,
Harbinger of royal foresight,
Spirals through catharsis,
Symbolizes Earth’s renewed might.

Existential crisis
Clears decayed blight, savagely smites
Rooted, evil calyx.
Epic anthropologist writes:
“Terra passed to Isis.”

Verses fade into oblivion and, for first time in years, teacher Andrea Thomas wakes with sense of calm fulfillment. Wondrous dream floats on edge of consciousness, summoning mythic figures to Andrea’s bedside. Without fully gripping significance teacher senses that fate has chosen her for a special task. Alarm clock trills, preventing further rumination upon destiny. Only much later does Mystic Blue Topaz resurface in Andrea’s home. “You have redeemed yourself.” unmistakable voice of Pharaoh tells kneeling educator. “I am returning Mystic Blue Topaz to your hands so you can instruct others in importance of honoring sacred Earth.” Proudly Andrea grips gemstone and begins transformation into long dormant alter ego, legendary superheroine Isis..

Tanya Danielle stars as Andrea Thomas/Isis in superheroine thriller Pharaoh’s Secret. Video contains bondage, damsel-in-distress, white rope, silk gag, transformation, pantyhose, pantyhose shredding, full nudity, extreme closeups, butt plug, and mesmerization of you, mere mortal.
