Happy Birthday, Kennedy Carter!!!

Last year at San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair, I had the opportunity to meet the very cool British porn star, Kennedy Carter. Here's why I think he's cool:

1) His tatts, duh.

2) He has really good taste in sushi. 
I randomly walked into this sushi restaurant in the Castro, looking for something to eat. As I was perusing the menu, I spotted Kennedy and his bud, Chris Porter. I asked them if the food was good, and they gave it a ringing endorsement. I decided to stay, and, for reals, the food was AWESOME!!!

3) He knows every word of Nicki Minaj's "Monster" verse.
I was too drunk to remember the context, but I know that at some point we were at a bar yelling all the lyrics to this classic verse. Now how fucking awesome is that?

Here are some pictures I took of him at Folsom and the Raging Stallion party. Enjoy and hit him up with B-day wishes on Twitter and Facebook.
