The big news over at AVN yesterday was

that Michael Raven is going to remake “Paradise Lost” by John Milton into a porn. Personally I don’t know which is more useless, the fact that he is actually going to attempt with a 125,000 dollar budget (as though this is a lot, hell that wouldn’t be enough to the film stock for a real version of the poem, not that Raven will be shooting on film) or the fact that AVN considers this to be newsworthy. For those who forgot the mostly forgetable poem here is a brief synopsis:

Paradise Lost is about Adam and Eve–how they came to be created and how they came to lose their place in the Garden of Eden, also called Paradise. It’s the same story you find in the first pages of Genesis, expanded by Milton into a very long, detailed, narrative poem. It also includes the story of the origin of Satan. Originally, he was called Lucifer, an angel in heaven who led his followers in a war against God, and was ultimately sent with them to hell. Thirst for revenge led him to cause man’s downfall by turning into a serpent and tempting Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.

Ya know it just hit me, he never said MILTON”S Paradise Lost, maybe he is going to remake the HBO Documentary “Paradise Lost” about the West Memphis Three and the murders of some little boys there.
