Upside Down, Turned Around

“Stadium Thrill” starring Jewell Marceau vs. myself

KO’ed and Abused

Greetings on this Labor Day weekend,

So many disjointed events have occurred that they seem like kaleidoscope fragments shifting around inside my head. It all started with a routine visit to the dentist who told me that I had a cyst on my throat. He advised that I make an appointment with an ear, nose, and throat specialist immediately. I did so, completing four days of shooting beforehand. On the appointed day my friend Jed kindly accompanied me to the doctor’s office  in case I needed a biopsy and might not feel comfortable driving home. After a short exam doc informed me that dentist had simply located the carotid bulb on my neck, not a cyst. Stunned but relieved I paid the agreed-upon $200 fee (I no longer have health insurance for reasons discussed here) and departed.

Within 48 hours Jed had cracked his tooth by biting into a bone. Of course I returned the favor and drove him to an exam as he had so kindly done for me. Hours passed. I revised text for Summertime Rune (new version entitled Strawberry Moon), filed my nails, flipped through a magazine, watched Hurricane Harvey coverage on TV, walked to 7-11 for a snack, stretched, had a cup of coffee, used the bathroom. Afternoon staff replaced morning staff at the dental office. One of the new arrivals shot a long, speculative look at me. I overheard swing shift receptionist assure an antsy patient that “Normally we never have waits like this but all our dentists are tied up with an emergency.”  Finally my phone chirped.

“Took forever to get that tooth out, just waiting to get sown up.” Jed’s message read.

Maybe 20 minutes later Jed staggered into the waiting room. I tried to keep a neutral expression on my face because he looked like he had gone through a war. Jed tried to talk, could not do so, stumbled into a nearby bathroom to spit blood into the sink. Only much later did he describe a truly barbaric scenario in which a tech held his jaws apart while two different dentists tried for hours to pry a  splintering molar out of his mouth. For the moment I needed to fill Jed’s prescription for pain pills “Rite Aid” he managed to mumble. He waited in the car while pharmacy assistant searched inventory, apologetically returned unfilled prescription to me. Inspiration struck when I returned to the wheel: “I have pain pills at home from my surgery in June!” I proclaimed while starting engine. Upon arrival building manager looked a bit askance when Jed and I alighted from car and Jed spat a stream of blood into the sewer. I bee-lined straight to my bathroom where I spent precious minutes hunting for the pills. In the meantime Jed had found a bottle of vodka in the freezer. “I’m not sure that you should.. ” I started to say and then just shut up. Later on Walgreens filled his Norco prescription and the experience has ended well.

Several days after dental episode I went to a court hearing where a friend’s son would possibly be turning himself in to face jail time. Friend and I arrived a bit late and could not find seats next to son. “He looks sad.” my friend said about son. “Look how red his eyes are.” Honestly, son did not appear that sad to me – he looked like someone who had indulged in a proverbial “last hurrah” overnight but I didn’t say anything. Judge gave son thirty days to get his affairs in order and report for an 8-month sentence in Los Angeles County Jail.

One day later I learned of an advanced water damage/mold situation that I would need to fix on my property. With that in mind I attended a lovely memorial service and could not really ponder the meaningful event because I needed to meet with a contractor about the mold issue directly afterward. Contractor assessed the significant damage and we drove to Home Depot. “Watch it, watch, watch it.. ” he cautioned as a random individual pedaled toward us atop a cornflower blue bicycle with large white basket. Cyclist drifted all over the roadway, enjoying the breeze, his freedom, his ability to disrupt all traffic in the vicinity. I recognized the bike as one of those rented in a popular tourist area miles and miles away. “Pedal for fitness and health!” a banner on the white basket read. “Ha, Ha, Ha!” contractor chortled aloud, his inflection getting higher on each “Ha!” “Look at him go! Look at this guy go!” I burst out laughing too. Bike thief was enjoying his ride more than anyone from the gentrified “Pedal for fitness and health!” enclave ever could.

As I sit here typing a freak, beautiful rainstorm has just begun pummeling my neighborhood. So awesome! We have been experiencing a 90+ degree heat wave near the ocean. Recent occurrences – including this sudden summer rain – have left me slightly discombobulated, like I haven’t really had a chance to process everything that’s happened in the past week or two. I am posting above photos from Stadium Thrill because I need some nudie pics and because they reflect how my circumstances have been veering all over the place lately..

Anyways, I feel very grateful for all blessings and hope everyone is doing well. I will try to answer post comments in the next few days.

Black Bikini Beatdown


Days that begin with stunning arrogance rarely go well for me. I’ve had a lifetime to learn this. One case in point: February 2017 match with fight legend Christine Dupree:

Somebody had a victory in there but.. who? Best to avoid reflecting upon total exhaustion and weeklong recovery because Christine and I have scheduled a rematch for this week. Didn’t I say something in a recent post about looking forward to time off? Yeah, right. Gent who ordered rematch requested that I wear same black bikini as above, thus forcing me to gaze at photos from previous altercation. A number of shots seem disconcertingly similar to fabled ending of Rocky 2. Wish I hadn’t looked.

In fact, a little voice in my head is saying this..

Sunday Punch

Returned home from yesterday’s match with Christine Dupree to find that ringmaster STJ had already uploaded some photos from our bout. Still recovering from that Sunday punch. Christine is probably nursing her wounds across town..

Incidentally, that same aqua blue bikini (thanks, Phil!) has seen quite a bit of action in recent years:

As sun sets over city I am working on Rage starring Lisa Tiffian vs. myself:


Rage boomerangs between locked eyes,
Olympic fighter breathes disdain,
Unknown opponent turns profane,
Sh*t-talking escalates, gloves rise,
Ensuing match brings lethal pain..

Boxer jerks awake amidst pool of sweat. Strange dream lurks on periphery of consciousness, falls off edge before she can recollect details. Clearly nightmare was warning her about something.. or someone. Always mindful of omens fighter realizes that she must watch her back, prepare for any unexpected challenge that may arise..

(Lisa Tiffian and Tanya Danielle star in Rage, an interracial boxing match featuring topless athletes, thongs, boots, mouth guards, staredown, referee, belly and tit punching, clinching, standing eight counts, decisive KO.)

Not sure how “Olympic fighter” worked its way into my text description but I like the ring of it 😉  I should have Rage available for download tomorrow on the Catfight page at TanyaTV.com. In the meantime enjoy new updates at

Will return to answer post comments after I post Rage. Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

Donovan’s Curse

Good afternoon,

Thought I would post a few more pics from Donovan’s Curse featuring experienced wrestler Mia Li. She and I only battled on this one occasion (April 28, 2015) and she later declined a rematch for reasons unknown. Looks like Mia has been staying busy, however, with a variety of endeavors, including her first anal scene.

Donovan’s Curse

Trapped in sleeper hold Tanya experiences vision of mysterious, doomed nomad:

Drifter focuses hard, crystalline eyes
On society’s encroaching virus,
Noose descends from preternatural skies,
Opal sclerae swallow light blue iris.
Violently choked by suicide rope,
At eternity’s gate, blind without hope,
Nomad whispers: “Join me, you desire this..”

With blue eyes rolled back in sockets, rope affixed around neck drifter beckons Tanya into oblivion. Feeling strangely intoxicated Tanya almost succumbs to tight chokehold before breaking free, tossing opponent onto canvas, continuing match. Much later Tanya tells coach: “I saw some type of white-eyed daemon when Mia had me in that sleeper hold. The daemon reached out like he was trying to entice me into the netherworld.” Coach stiffens. “Obviously I was hallucinating.. ” Tanya says slowly. “.. but this man seemed so.. real. Has anyone else ever mentioned a similar experience?” Coach silently formulates response to disturbing question. Finally he says: “The daemon, if you want to call him that, is Donovan. His name means ‘strong fighter’. I don’t want to explore the mythology with you but legend holds that Donovan only appears in minds of the vulnerable. If he returns you must resist his advances with every ounce of your strength. Evidently you fell briefly unconscious during the match – tonight we will review tape to figure out how to prevent that from ever happening again..”

Tis The Season

Good evening,

As you can see I’m lacing up my boots, getting stretched out, preparing for holidays. Just posted a bunch of updates:

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday! I am going to turn on an audiobook and begin sanding kitchen cabinets. Getting a jump start on 2017 New Year’s resolution to fix my place up..

180 Degrees









Good morning,

I greet you as sun sets over Pacific Ocean. Big thanks to all of you who remembered my birthday. Your e-mails and messages warmed my heart. Yesterday I did something different for my birthday: went to a home loan modification  workshop in Riverside County, a 2-hour drive on surface streets from where I live. Twisting through canyon roads, passing thousands of heads of livestock I motored toward Wind of the Spirit Church, the venue which was hosting the event. Upon arrival a woman asked for name of my lender, looked momentarily nonplussed when I stated it, and then told me to sign a sheet marked by only five other people. Another woman handed me a number, directed me to a busy area where I could wait until lender called me.

Attendees occupied designated spaces devoted to Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, Citibank, etc. Clutching numeral “6” I sat by myself in the empty section assigned to my lender. Most companies had individuals overflowing from their chairs but I had several rows completely to myself so I settled in one and placed bags in another.  Like most women present I carried purse plus additional tote bag filled with documents.

In the next room Bank of America representatives wore matching red garments, another lender wore black, tray after tray of coffee circulated, documents changed hands, and people stayed in perpetual motion even while seated. When my number got called someone lead me past a team in grey blazers, through another team in dark green, into the midst of twenty more animated conversations, and finally to a location directly in front of church pulpit where one individual sat all by himself with no coffee, no paperwork, and a big smile. I shook his hand.

After finding pertinent loan information on his computer he asked how he could help me. “I’m hoping to consolidate the first and second trust deeds on my condo.” I told him. “Can’t do it.” he said. “We’re not a lender.” I smiled, he smiled, silence. “What are you?” I inquired after a moment, unable to come up with a better question. “We are a servicer.” he explained, supplementing his answer with a list of services which his employer did provide. “The holder of the second trust deed directed me to talk to you guys.” I told him. “According to them only your company can enable me to consolidate the loans. Are you saying that I have no chance of combining them?” He nodded affirmatively.

Conversation improved from there. Basically, he told me what I need to do without really coming out and saying it. I gained valuable insight and feel glad that I spent my birthday on this mission. As mentioned in previous posts I have been experiencing some financial issues and am trying to approach them proactively, even though I usually cringe when I hear that word.

At the event people in the waiting area had been carrying on quiet conversations, often wishing one another luck when number holders got called onto the main floor. I rarely find myself amongst kindred spirits – if anything, I have been feeling totally out of touch with most of society – but yesterday I fit right in. Despite presumable hardships (why else would you attend a loan modification workshop?) no one behaved brusquely, raised a voice, or had any need to call attention to him or herself. In Southern California, megalopolis built around clamorous entertainment industry, this qualifies as unusual.

Money issues have humbled me, made me more sensitive to my fellow man, and much more appreciative of blessings in my life. I used to fixate on acquiring more, more, more material “gains” but now I try to maintain a happy, harmonious home and help others whenever I can. Priorities have changed, flipped 180 degrees. I reflected on all this as I sat in the church yesterday, pondering loan modifications and yet another passing birthday. Very glad that I went.

By the way, everything seems to indicate that my mysterious non-lender qualifies as a foreclosure mill. They acquired my loan back in 2012 when I was dealing with a bad tenant, facing the very beginnings of health issues, and falling behind on mortgage payments. Even though I’m stuck with non-lender for now I feel a new sense of equanimity. Like Jeff Lebowski I shall abide – no point in sweating issues beyond my control 😉

Thanks again for all the birthday wishes. Hadn’t intended to type this long but yesterday seemed rather profound, mainly because I realize how much I have changed. Anyways, back to important stuff:

  •  Pics above come from Underground Violence gallery (starring Fightbabe Robin vs. myself) just uploaded to FantasyImageStore.com
  • Onyx Castle is now playing inside Diamond Club Members’ Area with another new selection coming tomorrow
  • Lip is healing slowly but surely. Should be able to start shooting customs within a week, I hope. Huge thanks to my custom video collectors who are waiting so patiently!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

P.S. Do I look a little dazed in photo below? You would too if you went ten rounds with Fightbabe Robin..

Amarna, USA







Good evening,

Just emerged from bed and found pics from ringmaster STJ inside my inbox. Fiery Spaniard  Amarna Miller and I shot above match on November 10, I did another shoot yesterday, and then had to postpone today’s booking due to  recurrence of fever. Guess I should have taken more time to recover from illness I mentioned in last post.

Lovely Amarna, whom I met for the first time minutes before our match, struck me as both uncommonly intelligent and capable. Although relatively new to wrestling she successfully pulled off numerous moves that many veterans would probably not even try. Her pleasant manner, tinged with just the slightest diffidence, bespoke very refined cultural sensibilities. I found her intriguing and would like to know more about her. Have a feeling Amarna spends a lot more time reading literature than watching television, if you get my drift. A certain intensity seems to percolate beneath her red hair and beautiful fair skin.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I would like to send much love and gratitude to current and former members of our US military whom we just honored with the Veteran’s Day holiday on Friday. Mere words seem inadequate but sentiment behind them comes from the heart. Thank you for your service.


P.S. I’m going to eat something and go back to bed. Will answer messages tomorrow 🙂

Crash! Bang! Kaboom!









Just woke to a raging thunderstorm – reminds me of morning I last encountered Geisha Warrior Maiden Akira Lane:

Ancient legend describes atmospheric peculiarities which presage arrival of Geisha Warrior Maiden:

“Black ink drips from sky, blankets mountains high,
Lays onyx finish over seas, conceals
Avenging executrix drawing nigh.
Crash! Bang! Kaboom! Gold thunderbolt reveals
Kimono-clad assassin’s creamy thigh..”

Words resonate with catfighter Tanya Danielle but only briefly. “Geisha Warrior Maiden..” she says contemptuously. “I beat Mia Li and I will destroy Akira Lane as well.” Misplaced confidence infuses nighttime dreams with strange tincture. After hours of restless sleep Tanya wakens to face black dawn. Hidden behind dense storm clouds rising sun casts only faintest glow upon obsidian-hued ocean waters. Tanya smiles wickedly. “Two can play at this game.” she says, clothing herself head to toe in dark apparel. “Wonder how Akira the Warrior Maiden will like facing someone who wears her own colors.” Tanya turns from eleventh story window just as thunderbolt illuminates shapely leg slipping out from beneath black silken robe..

Lol.. Akira knows how to make a dramatic entrance. Geisha Warrior Maidens always do 😉

Looks like a break in the rain.. must seize opportunity to go jogging. Hope everyone has a nice Monday!

Good evening,

Years ago someone described bondage icon Ashley Renee as being “perpetually in distress”. I don’t think Ashley would object to the words. Haven’t seen her since the shooting of Tickle Torture but she always seemed to have more than her share of chaos. Lately I, too, have been experiencing a lot of misadventures (blindness, second degree burns, etc.). On Monday I tangled with a feral individual who really went for blood. Shredded from elbows down I visited local urgent care center for tetanus shot, prescription of heavy-duty antibiotic. Attack kitty is still prowling the neighborhood along with an adorable litter-mate. Yep, my assailant was a tiny cat, probably just weeks old. She had inched halfway into my pet carrier and then went bananas when I tried to zip it. I have contacted a local cat rescue group and we are intending to trap the kittens so they can visit the vet. A kind neighbor already wants to take responsibility for them.

Thus far my week has felt a bit catawampus  (kinda like top pic) but I have met some really nice neighbors and am healing quickly. Yesterday I wore long gloves at my shoot 😉 This evening I am working on Underground Violence starring legendary wrestler Robin and myself (above pics) and should have the video posted tomorrow at TanyaTV.com. Hope everyone is enjoying this June Thursday! I will return to answer post comments in the morning.

10-Count Twilight







Good evening,

I have been shooting and revisiting older, never-released content. Yesterday I had opportunity to ponder twilight netherworld created by an expertly applied chokehold or smother. Usually I spend a day or two writing promotional text for a specific video but this popped out as soon as I put pen to paper:

10-Count Twilight

Astral silver,
Cherry marvel,
Cacophony of color,
Twilight slumber..

Wrestler fights for consciousness amidst swirling colors, disjointed thoughts, pressing breasts, twinkling lights. “1.. 2.. 3.. ” Breath impossible beneath massive tit smother. “4.. 5.. ” Body writhes. “6.. 7.. 8.. ” Spirit kicks free before final 10-count. Back on feet combatant smiles ironically, hears chirping of real or imagined birds. Opponent glares, angrier than before. Match continues with surprising twists and turns until one merciless bitch seizes upper hand..

Heavy boots,
Blue canvas,
Mystical séance,
Indubitable truth.
Loser hears peculiar words, faces reality before lapsing into painful quiescence.
(Nicole Oring and Tanya Danielle star in 10-Count Twilight, an exploration of female fighting which features multiple KOs, multiple chokeholds, altered consciousness, multiple referee countdowns, multiple kickouts, facesitting, stomping, grapevines, hair pulling, figure four head scissors, crossbody pins, sleeper holds, leg scissors, belly punching, camel clutch, Stacy Keibler corner foot choke, crawling, stomping, boob smother, rear dragon sleeper hold, Boston crab, stomach claw, championship belt. Download 10-Count Twilight at TanyaTV.com now.)
Photos look bad but I did succeed in mounting a comeback of sorts. More photos soon.. I just uploaded first gallery from 10-Count Twilight to FantasyImageStore.com. Hope everyone had a great Super Bowl weekend. I shall return in the morning to answer post comments – still recovering from celebrating my lucky Denver +6 wager 😉

Xmas in LA










Good afternoon,

Still haven’t answered blog comments, e-mails, or gone to my mailbox. However, in addition to getting sloshed with my friends, I have accomplished a few things. Legendary wrestler Robin and I met at the STJ ring to settle some differences. Despite bitter California cold (60 degrees) we donned skimpy bikinis, braved elements, battled for honor. Tis the season for vengeance 😉

Upside Down






Good morning,

Just slept 10 hours and I feel great. Above photos come from November 5, 2015 shoot with Goldie Blair and Jackson. Upon reviewing these photos it occurred to me that I never experience any neck or back issues, even after decades of wrestling, bondage, dancing, living. Maybe chiropractors should try some of the above exercises with their clients 😉

November12015 195_pp


In the early hours of this morning I rolled home on fumes, too tired to stop for gas. Parking deities blessed me with a spot close to my building and I got all gear upstairs in just two hauls. Recent theft deters me from leaving suitcases in my car anymore. Exhausted, I lay down in bed and watched the ceiling fan spin until it became apparent that I could not sleep. Why does that happen? I pulled on jeans, Uggs (thanks, Bob!) and headed to a donut shop after fueling my car. 14 hours later I am still buzzing with caffeine/overtiredness/delirium from recent round of shooting, diner food, cheap lodging, and even cheaper cocktails. Above pics capture the grandeur 😉 Tomorrow I will post footage from yesterday’s wrestling match with Goldie Blair and possibly some shots I did in the ring with wrestler Jackson.

It feels like time for a long, hot shower and peaceful night of rest in my own bed. I shall return in the morning to answer blog comments. Hope everyone is already enjoying the weekend!

One Person Traveling







Good afternoon,

I have embarked on another round of shooting. Pics above come from yesterday’s shoot with Prinzzess. Needless to say, our match got pretty down and dirty 😉 My travels continue this week as I create more videos. Often I stay in motels because I have a phobia of driving on the freeway and happen to reside in one of the furthest corners of Los Angeles County. Sometimes I get lonely in budget accommodations and 24-hour diners but I stay busy studying scripts (2nd pic from top) and snapping photos of roadside attractions.

Hope everyone is doing well. I will return tomorrow or Thursday to answer blog comments and post more photos. Right now I’m feeling a little worn out and think I can use a cocktail..

Cans of Yore





Good evening,

Whilst editing photos for FantasyImageStore.com I had to pause and marvel at the truly immense size of my former breasts. Not long after shooting Elite Blonde Corps (above pics) with Ariel X I underwent breast reduction surgery. Amazing now to look at those cans and recall how many decades (2) that I navigated through society with them. I feel great with a smaller chest but I still admire huge racks. Recently I have noticed a pleasing resurgence of XXX actresses who look a bit reminiscent of 1990s-era, big-boobed starlets.  Remember the feature dancers who sported names like Wendy Whoppers, Niki Knockers, Marilyn Melons, Holly Body, Letha Weapons, Maxi Mounds, Deena Duos, Donita Dunes (truly outrageous Scene 4), Savannah Staxx (Scene 7), Whitney Wonders, etc? Wonder if that trend will ever resurface..

Memories of Santana






CatfightBlogger asked me to write a few more words about wrestler Santana who died tragically on October 11, 2015. Throughout her career Santana performed under numerous monikers, including her legal name, Tina. I first met Tina in 2000 at a shoot for DTWrestling.com. She took fitness seriously, studied martial arts, and kept herself in top physical shape. Like most women of the era who worked in the erotic catfight realm – Francesca Le, Stacy Burke, Christine Dupree, Jewell Marceau, Shannan Leigh, Hollywood, myself, others – Tina had an excellent grasp on reality and fully comprehended the fantasy nature of the videos that we were creating. She tortured her victims with savage vengeance when a script called for her to win a match and suffered in abject humiliation when scripted to lose. As evidenced by pics above (courtesy of femfight producer STJ) Tina played both roles, victor and jobber, to the hilt.

Maybe around 2004 or so Tina seemed to vanish from the scene. A few years later I did too. Did we have the same reason? I can only speculate. Within this time frame I was having problems with performers who took themselves very seriously and apparently could not comprehend that winning or losing a scripted match did not constitute any type of real victory or loss. Those words seem so remedial as I type them but I just don’t know how to explain the situation in any other way. I started producing my own videos so I could avoid working with people who lived in self-created worlds of delusion. Presumably Tina was pursuing other types of endeavors but I will never know what path she took out of the catfight industry or why she chose to leave.

After a long hiatus Tina resurfaced maybe a year or so ago. STJ scheduled us for an October 21, 2015 match. I was very much looking forward to seeing her again. Just checked my cellphone and realized that STJ and I were exchanging text messages about the upcoming shoot just hours after Tina’s death. Of course we had not yet heard of her passing. Local news sources later reported that Tina had argued with her boyfriend and then gone to take a shower where the boyfriend had shot and killed her before committing suicide. A roommate had phoned police immediately after hearing the first shot.

Tina and I both lived for many years in the same general area of Los Angeles. Other than our shoots for DTWrestling.com she and I had only spent time together when I visited her at The Castle in Manhattan Beach where she used to bartend. I will always remember Tina as a raven-haired beauty with a no-nonsense demeanor and tremendous charisma. She touched many friends and fans with her regal grace and radiant personality. I hope that Tina’s three children and one grandchild will eventually find peace in the aftermath of her heartbreaking, untimely passing.
