A Quick Note from the Good Doctor: Penthouse Article Update

Doc here, a man who some say always wanted to be be featured in a major magazine, until it was revealed it would be Field & Stream, with an important update.

Remember the Fall of 2014? It was unseasonably warm, there were plenty of hot times being chronicled at various adult theaters across the country, and Ohio State was still on their first-string quarterback? 

Yeah, me too. 

It was in the Fall that The Good Doctor announced that he had given an interview to Penthouse magazine back in the Spring, and that the interview and article about the adult theater scene was hitting any time now. Well, the article kept on getting bumped back, month after month. Leaves fell from the trees, the first snows arrived. I had my doubts that it would ever see the light of day.

That was until today... I received an e-mail from Penthouse stating that the article will appear in the April 2015 issue of Penthouse. They also asked The Good Doctor for more photos for the piece, and I am working on them as we speak. 

Typically, the April issue will hit sometime in March.  As soon as I get a street date for the issue, I will let you, the good  readers of The Journal, know ASAP. 

Thanks for hanging in there with your old friend in the white suit and aviators. The adult theater scene is going glossy, with a little help from some friends.


By Demand: The Gear I Use

Doc here, a man who some say has had enough minor surgery this month to last a lifetime, has something a little different for you, the good readers of The Journal.

As I sit here in my office, deep in The Valley, near the small women's liberal arts college, I am recovering from a second round of minor surgery from this morning. Hopefully this wraps things up and I will not look like a voodoo doll for much longer. 

What better time than to write something a little different. Maybe offer a different peek behind The Good Doctor's curtain. 

Several times a month, and in particular in the wake of my Good Doctor's Showcase report on the photo shoot with the amazing Hawaiian Eyeful, I would get technical questions from readers. Questions like "...what photo gear are you using?",  " you create your own artwork?", " you use Photoshop?"  I would always write everyone back individually and answer their tech questions, offer some advice, and move on. 

In the last month the tech questions came in much more frequently, due in part to the Hawaiian Eyeful shoot. My dilemma was how can I answer these questions and not get bogged down with the correspondence.

The answer finally hit me last week...
