Wow?! Im a character in a book by Tomas Mournian?! Who knew?! not me?!


I guess this character named "Hammer" in this book is based off of me. In the book Im a teen, I think, and I get into the online camwhore biz... which though I never did "cam whoring" per say I DID used to love to "cash master" dudes online and non sexually BERATE GAYS and tell them to buy me shit.. is that cam whoring? Back then it wasnt so much as there were only like 2 other guys doing it and no websites dedicated to it, now there are a TON of teens on growth hormone and Mones milking gays for all their worth by flexing their arms and showing their sneakers and I SWEAR that all they have to do. Nobody even wants you to be sexual because the fantasy is that your straight so being sexual would ruin it.. its kinda cute.. My bf was the one who got me to do it btw as he totally got off on it and I had never even heard of such a thing, whenever I tell people theyre like "People have a FETISH FOR GIVING YOU MONEY with nothing sexual involved?! and the answer is YES!!!. Granted I LOVED it as guys sending you $$ online just because they think youre some str8 bully and hot kinda rules but the fun wore off quick as as soon as it felt like you were hustling them and they werent just running up and handing you money without even saying a word, it soon felt hookery so you just stopped as the novelty wore off and it felt SMARMY..... but the STUNTS we pulled?! Oh it was fun!.... There was this GERMAN GUY who used to have this fetish for SPITTING WITH ACCURACY and would be like "I will give you 100$ if you can stand 15 feet away from the camera and accurately spit on the lense"... SO being CREATIVE and UP FOR THE CHALLENGE what I would do is stand away from the camera and my old bf would HIDE to the side of the camera with a SPRAY BOTTLE and I would PRETEND TO SPIT, he would wait a second, then SPRAY THE CAMERA WITH THE WATER, and the guy would freak out and think I had super accurate spitting abilities and we would GIGGLE FOREVER and then go buy sneakers with the $$$, theyd pay it all on paypal... Oh those were the days...
ANYWAYS... Click HERE to get the book and here is the q&a section from the back where he tells who the character is based on :
Q: What about Hammer?

A: (Laughs) Right? Because I'm not tall, blond or anything like that. But a friend of mine, David, who knew when he was a teenager, is Hammer. David's a huge fan of Grace Jones, and before everyone else was mopping her, was clued into her singularity of appearance, her embrace of the extreme. In David, I saw a young person struggling with being this sort of queer ideal. And it's been interesting to see him grow-up and play with that stereotype, to fuck with it, as it were.

Is Tomas Mournian really your friend?

How do you know him?

David Mason said...

I met him when I was in college in La at the gym :) like how everyone gay meets everyone.

Tomas M said...

@ Gavin, yes, David's really my friend, though I deny having met him at the gym. He was doing cartwheels & backflips on Sunset (or, Laurel?) Part of some performance art project.

David, BTW, how did I know to channel this heretofore unknown chapter in your life? I must be a distant relation of Ms. Cleo or something... though, the spitting w/in ten feet client story, if I'd known, he would have been smuggled into the narrative. your description was really hilarious. I think you should write the graphic novel sequel: "Hammer Hoists Hamburg."

Cartwheels or backflips?! I wish I could do backflips...
and if this really is how you think we met please indulge me as I have zero recollection.

Omg reading this I feel like I've lived the most boring life ever?? Maybe this is what can get me through this lean September?!?!

David, I may have been hallucinating about the backflips (even though I always thought you were a gold medal gymnast ... am I wrong about that too???) But i'm sure you remember working the runway, in that Gucci show? Backflips, black thong, same difference.
