British Star Mickey Taylor Releases New Album, Talks Conformity in Gay Porn
Huffington Post - 18 days
As a multiple-time winner at the British Prowler Porn Awards, Mickey Taylor is accustomed to baring all for the cameras. Though confident and comfortable exposing himself sexually, the adult film star, model and musician found doing so emotionally on new album Midnight Palace a bit more challenging — but necessary. “I just wanted to finally express myself and show a vulnerable side of myself, which was really painful,” the multi-racial heart-throb told Party Foul Radio with Pollo & Pearl. “I’ve been ripping my heart out every single day for a year, trying to get that album done.” Released Jan. 27 through all online retail music outlets, the 11-song Midnight Palace follows Taylor’s 2016 debut Puppets Lament. The new album veers away from its predecessor, which the artist describes as having greater “gay pop” overtones. “The first album was me experimenting with the music industry, finding what worked and what didn’t,” said Taylor. The tracks which most struck a cord with li ...

Know Jack by the Numbers
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
Co-written with Seth Kindig. Did you hear about the guard in NCAA basketball that LeBron James compared to the likes of Kobe Bryan and Wilt Chamberlain? That comparison came last year - during the player's freshman year. This year? He got the attention of ESPN and USA Today. Who and why? The buzz is about Jack Taylor, a sophomore guard for Grinnell College. This past Sunday, he scored 109 points in a 173-123 win over Crossroads College. As a freshman, he scored 138 against Faith Baptist Bible College. How is it even possible for one player to shoot over 100 points, let alone do it twice in under a year? No, he wasn't the only scorer on the Grinnell Pioneers basketball team. For example, when he scored 138, the team won with 179 points. So again, how is such a feat possibly accomplished? Inherently, such a feat isn't easy - at all. Let's look to the numbers of the game to add some insight. Some quick computations uncover the nature of the game, even if you didn't ...

Juniors start league season with the narrowest of wins
Birdlington Free Pass - over 3 years
Bridlington U17s’ first league match of the season, at home to Sheffield Tigers, proved to be a cracking and very entertaining game. A win was needed to get the campaign off to a good start but the hot day sapped the players’ energy and made the ground hard and unforgiving. Both sides overcame this and produced dazzling rugby. The first 10 minutes showed a close contest was one the cards, but it was the home side who broke the deadlock. Jack Taylor touched down in the corner with an excellent kick from Taylah Muru-King converting. Sheffield replied with another try in the corner, which was also converted, to level the scores. Before half time, the Tigers added another try and Muru-King pulled one back for Brid, which meant they turned round just two points behind at 12-14. The game was more than just fitness, it was down to who wanted to win the most. This very physical encounter was end to end and could have gone either way. A Muru-King try put Brid ahead, before Sheffield’s ...

A Closer Look Shows That Taylor's 138-Point Performance Was A Sham
Business Insider - about 4 years
After Jack Taylor of Grinnell College broke the NCAA record for points in a game, a former Grinnell player revealed to Deadspin just how orchestrated and phony the record is. And in fact, a closer look at video of the game reveals that Grinnell College set out from the beginning to break the record which makes this feat feel more like Evel Knievel than Wilt Chamberlain. As can be heard in the video below, even before the game started, the announcers reveal that Grinnell's plan was to break the record saying "tonight [the record for points in a game] will possibly be broken...by new sophomore transfer Jack Taylor." Also, during the game itself (1:21 mark in video below) we can see just how Taylor was able to take 108 shots and break the record. Not only did his teammates routinely pass up open shots to get Taylor the ball, he rarely went back to the other side of the court to play defense. We also see how David Larson of Faith Baptist Bible was able to score 70 points with amazing ...
