Memorial Day weekend started with a bang at Hydrate Nightclub and a kickoff party. Adult movie legend Dean Monroe greeted guests at the front door. The rooms were filled with shirtless studs that led to the back with Channel 1’s Chi Chi LaRue spinning out the old school hits in the DJ booth.
Friday I was stopped by Best Buy worker while shopping and was asked, “Aren’t you supposed to be at the IML market?”
Can’t a guy shop for electronics in peace?
After interviewing Chaz Bono and Jenny McCarthey, I ran to take pictures for Time Out Chicago at the Black Out music festival. It like a local Lollapalooza with a new band every 45 minutes. The night ended with me running a promotion for Manhunt at Touche with porn star Will Clark.

I was woken up the next day by porn stars texting me to come down and interview them at their hotel rooms. Brazilian hottie Alexsander Freitas has a strong accent so I was not looking forward to transcribing what he said. Who needs to talk when he showed me his tattoos and homemade porn videos straight from his camera? I then hit the leather market seeing everything from prostrate massagers to boy butter and the owners were generous with samples. After I took more pictures at Black Out and a mosher almost broke my camera! Then I ran over for the red carpet at the Grabbys. This annual porn star awards ceremony has a lot of meaning for the guys that are nominated. While a little long and dull in parts mainly because of sound and presenters not being able to open the envelopes, a musical guest could of spiced things up. I met Alan Cumming after his show at the Harris Theatre and proved life is a Cabaret for this nightcrawler. Then I headed to the Metro to wander into a forest of bears and the Blow Off event featuring rocker Bob Mould and remixer Richard Morel. Read my interview with them in the interview section. The line wound up down the block for this all nighter.
Sunday was long day working the Manhunt booth with adult film legend Ricky Sinz. We had fun all day chatting with fans, making guys try on Manhunt jocks and watching graphic porn videos across from our booth. It is always surreal watching your friends in a porno and giving you a behind the scenes.
Ricky invited me to his Frankie Knuckles War Party later that night where I danced the night away with my friends to old school tracks.
Monday was a little more relaxed at the IML Manhunt booth as the weather finally heated up. The day finally ended with the closing party at Excalibur and goodbye to a long weekend!
Ricky Sinz is one of the highest grossing adult film stars ever. He was just named Raging Stallion Man of the Year for 2009. This local legend wanted to update Nunn on the Run about his busy schedule.
Jerry Nunn: Hi Ricky! Can I just say that I am happy to interviewing my neighbor? Are you ever tempted to move away from Chicago?
Ricky Sinz: I love Chicago. It’s my home. I was born and raised here, but there are times when I feel like it would be in my best interest career wise to leave. The options are so limited here in Chicago for models and adult film stars.
JN: I liked the fact that you are opinionated when I met you. If you could change one thing about the adult industry, what would it be?
RS: There is an age limit in porn, but there should also be a mentality limit in the business. I feel that some people in porn don’t have the right mind frame to be in the business.
JN: Being the first and only lifetime performer for Raging Stallion must be quite an honor. What do you enjoy most about the company?

Margaret Cho is always on the go. This summer is no different for her. Her fifth stand-up concert, “Beautiful,” premiered recently on Showtime and her role as Teri Jane on Drop Dead Diva is on its second season. Having met Margaret during Windy City Media Group’s meet-and-greet at Sidetrack years ago, it was great to see that she hasn’t changed from being the same sweet and genuinely funny person.
Jerry Nunn: Hello Margaret, it’s me—Jerry. I just saw your new show, Drop Dead Diva. It’s very cute has a great deal to say about how people judge people on looks. Did that attract you to the project?
Margaret Cho: Yes, I really loved the script. It’s a great concept and there is so much about it that I really relate to. Body image is something that I have talked about in my work for years. The story is about women and how we value our looks in this country and society. It’s not just about women but could apply to everyone. It’s close to my heart.
JN: How do you like working with [ co-star ] Brooke Elliott?
MC: I love her. She’s great. She’s an amazing actress. I think the reason the show works so well is because she makes this fantastic situation very believable. She’s an extraordinary artist and I am very excited to be working with her.
JN: What do you like about acting on a television show as opposed to traveling around performing stand up?
