Hogs & Heifers Closing Party – 8.23.15

Last night another infamous New York bar shut it’s doors. After 23 years in the Meatpacking District Hogs & Heifers is gone. I only went there a handful of times because when I moved to NYC 9 years ago the Meatpacking District was already a shit show of rich douchebags and tourists hitting bottle service clubs but when Hogs & Heifers opened it’s doors the neighborhood looked a lot different. Hogs was a rowdy bar where the half naked bartenders would dance on the bar, steal bras and scream at people on a megaphone for any and all reasons.

The bar was home to bikers and cops and firemen and drunks and union construction workers who were building the west side of NYC into the horror show of luxury development it is now. Eventually it became a tourist attraction after it was surrounded by hotels and art galleries and nightclubs. Tourists could walk in there any night of the week and slum it with scumbags and have a wild time while the bartenders fleeced them for whatever they could take.

While I wasn’t a huge fan of the bar I was honored to be there for their last night. The security kept the douche bags out and the evening was surprisingly low key considering the shit show it usually is. That’s not to say things didn’t get wild last night, but there was as much crying and hugging as there was puking and fucking. There aren’t a lot of bars that last over 20 years in NYC and it’s closing it was another reminder that this city is not the city that everyone dreams of before they move here.

But last night was one of those real New York moments where you get a glimpse of what New York was once upon a time. There were people of nearly every age and race and background there and they were all singing along to Frank Sinatra and Johnny Cash. I met old drunks and Jersey bikers and twenty something hipsters and dozens of those real New York characters you see in old Law & Order episodes. It was a fairly magical night.

Oh, and there were a lot of hot half naked women dancing on bars. With all my waxing poetic I forgot why you came to my website for a second… Don’t worry – there are boobs to be seen.

RIP Hogs & Heifers and fuck all the real estate developers who are cashing in on the culture they are destroying. (Except, of course, for Stephen Ross because he owns my favorite football team.)

Chelsea

Many years ago I pretty much fell in love with this babe on the via the internet named Chelsea. She was friends with a bunch of tattooed naked babes I knew and kept showing up everywhere. Remember when MySpace was a thing? Anyway, for some reason she was a fan of my photos and we became friends in real life and she actually ended up getting my logo tattooed on her leg.

Fast forward 8 years later Chelsea has become a badass naked babe photographer and has been telling me that entire time that she’s gonna get her DBB tattoo covered up (she still hasn’t!). Chelsea is also a wonderful human so when we were hanging out together at Art Basel in Miami last winter she told me I could take some sexy photos of her. She thought being on the other side of the camera would make her photography better and who am I to argue.

Not only did I get to take somesexy photos of her but I also had probably the best meal of my life with her at Versailles after the shoot. It was seriously epic. Very great day.

Now since Chelsea is a photographer and she was fairly picky about the photos I could use and most of the stuff we shot was in her underwear or just implied nude, but there are some really sexy ones in there and she even let me throw a few properly naked ones up on Girls of Driven By Boredom because she is a wonderful human.

In conclusion, Chelsea is really hot and a great photographer, Versailles in Miami is the best food ever and you need to sign up for Girls of DBB now.

Oh and then click this link here to look at some really hot photos of Chelsea.

The Driven By Boredom Snapback

I realized recently that the last time I did any Driven By Boredom clothing it was 2009. I figured it was time to step up my game a little bit and frankly I wanted my own black on black DBB Snapback. Fortunately a friend of mine who does the embroidery for another thing I do asked me to shoot his daughter’s Sweet 16 party. Normally I would have said no, but the guy is a good friend and has done a lot for me so I pitched him the idea of a trade. So a few weeks ago I shot his daughters 16th birthday in what was one of the most surreal events I have ever photographed. Did you know 16 year olds love the Electric Slide? And somehow Soulja Boy is still popular? Wild.

(I actually have shot one other Sweet 16 party but it was for current Fool’s Gold recording artist Leaf and Usher was there an Dev and Shwazye performed so it was kinda a different thing.)

Anyway, in exchange for shooting the party I got a couple dozen hats. I got a dozen black on black, six magenta (pink) and six red. Since I am stealing one of each of them there’s very few left so if you want one you better get one now.

The hats are $28 which is a compromise between the $25 I wanted to sell em for and the $30 that I probably should sell them for to justify a shooting a 16 year old girl birthday party.

I shot my friend Bel Vargas in the hats last night but I didn’t really think about shooting any safe for work stuff because I am an idiot so I guess you are just gonna have to deal with some nipples.

Ps. Also for sale on my Etsy store is the greatest photo I have ever taken.

Back With Brandy Aniston

Before I left town for a few weeks I photographed Brandy Aniston in her Manhattan hotel room. Our plan was mostly to take topless photos in Times Square for the public nudity zine I am working. The zine is going to be mostly 35mm so I just wanted to shoot film in Times Square, but I had been trying to shoot Brandy for years so I wanted to get some digital shots too. We only had about 10 minutes to shoot in her room because I had plans right after so we just banged it out real quick.

I posted the full set, including some extra porny images on Girls Of Driven By Boredom before I left town but I had this set all ready to go so I figured I would get it up now. It’s a pretty small set and clearly very rushed, but Brandy is really cool looking so I think you are gonna be glad it exists. Like she’s so porno looking which isn’t normally my thing but there is something about her that makes you just wanna do terrible shit to her but like also go hang out with her at a dive bar afterwards. Maybe it’s just the tattoos and I am that predictable. Who knows but I am glad I finally got to shoot her and hopefully I will get more than 15 minutes next time.

My Gathering of the Juggalos trip directly into vacation was supposed to be over already but my parents are retiring and just sold their home so I ended up taking an extra day and a half to help them with everything. Part of it was just wanting to spend an extra night in my childhood home before some strangers are living in it even though my parents gave my bed away already. But I will be back in NYC tonight and back to work. I got a lot of shit to do and a lot of projects to work on. I have stuff I am working on for September, November, December and January so it should be an exciting couple of months unless I run out of money and have to get a real job.

See you guys back in Brooklyn, but in the mean time go lurk these images and if you want to see a few extra pervy photos of Brandy you can at Girls of Driven By Boredom or just like Google her. She’s a porn star; Her vagina is everywhere.

The Final 2015 Gathering Of The Juggalos Post

This is it. The very last 2015 Gathering of the Juggalos update. You made it! Now we can go back to naked porn stars and hipster parties and shit. Get excited. As soon as I get back from vacation I will hit you with a few naked babes to make up for all the juggalos.

This post is just a dump of everything left over from the Gathering. It starts with the very first photo I took of a car that was being signed by everyone and ends with a photo of some wrestlers moving a safe. (Just FYI I was told on good authority that the car was signed by Tech N9ne’s tattoo artist so it’s pretty valuable.)

In here we have a lot of juggalo photos that weren’t quite good enough to make the Juggalo Portraits gallery plus photos of stuff for sale, some crowd shots, pictures of juggalo campsites and vehicles and some of the Wolfpac/ Psychopathic Radios events that didn’t make it in the fight club update. There’s also some juggalo tattoos and some pictures of juggalos getting tattoos. No photo of my new juggalo tattoo though…

So that’s it for the photos, but I also wanted to include a list of all of the articles and photo galleries I had published in different outlets across the internet.

2015 Juggalo Portraits

This is my favorite Gathering of the Juggalos update and the second to last. The final update will just be a dump of everything that didn’t fit into another category so I saved the best for second to last.

These are my favorite juggalo photos (although I pulled a few NSFW favorites out for the naked juggalettes update). This is the gallery I am gonna pull from when I finally do my juggalo book. 

The only problem with this gallery is that it features 75 images and least 50 of them are a fantastic. It’s almost too easy to take good juggalo photos. Every day when the sun would start to go down I would have about 90 minutes where every photo I took came out great. Festivals suck because of the harsh light during the day, but once magic hour hits the shots can be great… especially when your subjects are dressed as terrifying clowns.

Now because Amtrak blocked my website I am updating this using my iPhones hot spot so I am gonna make this quick. When I get to DC my vacation officially starts but I am gonna try and get the final update written while on the train so all I have left to do is upload the gallery and hit send on the post tomorrow and then I can just ignore everything until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Thanks for digging these photos and continuously crashing my website. See you tomorrow.

Busey Beauties @ Gathering Of The Juggalos

Hopefully you remember Mike Busey and his Busey Beauties from last year. If not him or his girls you certainly remember Big LA the giant stomached man who went viral after grinding on girls with his gut. They aren’t exactly juggalos but they put on crazy shows and give juggalos lap dances if you buy a t-shirt so juggalos (and photographers love them).

I ran into them when I was shooting Ho99o9 and I saw them getting on the Tilt-A-Whirl. I jumped on it too and took photos of them (which was really difficult) while riding the ride. After that Mike told me he had become a fan of my photography since I got him in Rolling Stone last year and we immediately set up a shot of him and his girls in a port-a-potty. Good times.

His crew is so photogenic I actually had to make an effort not to just spend all my time hanging out with them. As a photographer it’s hard not to want to photograph them and as a scumbag it’s hard not to flirt with half naked fire breathing strippers. I think I managed to do an okay job shooting other things, but I do have an odd number of people in my phone with the last name Busey now.

Also I should mention that Vine star Charlie Classic was there as well. I don’t know fucking anything about Vine since they stopped allowing nudity and I got kicked myself kicked off with a naked Vine titled “Fuck your terms of service”. That being said I had a couple of my Instagram & Twitter followers tell me I should go meet him. Seems like a good dude and also kinda a scumbag which means I like him even more.

Most of these photos were already published in a Noisey interview with me/ conversation about and gallery of Mike Busey and crew. Go read that shit now.

Okay, I am going on vacation today and I thought this write up was going to be three sentences on but I am on an ungodly amount of caffeine so enjoy all the words.

Now click here to see the full, very NSFW gallery of Mike Busey and his Busey Beauties!

Juggalos After Dark

Wanted to come at you guys with a late night post featuring late night things. Really I am just trying to organize these Gathering of the Juggalos photos into as few updates as possible so we can all get on with out lives. Plus I am going on vacation tomorrow so I don’t want to be doing this while I am supposed to be fishing. Yeah, I am going fishing. I go every year. Deal with it.

Anyway, this post is pretty much just all the photos I took using the rented flash that I had to drive 90 minutes to get because I left mine at home because I was on two hours of sleep when I packed. Most of these photos are just photos of juggalos but we got some other stuff going on. After the headlining band plays at the Gathering there is about 5 hours of events going on including a dance party every night featuring various DJs and dancers and stuff. Plus there is comedy and wrestling. I didn’t do any of the wrestling this year but I did hang out with Colt Cabana a couple times if that counts for anything.

I also caught Big Jay Oakerson and Judah Friedlander’s comedy sets. Well I caught part of Oakerson’s but left because I don’t hate women or gay people but that’s just me. Friedlander was really funny but I run into that dude in NYC from time to time so maybe our sensibilities are a bit closer in line than Big Jay Oakerson. True fact: Once when waiting for a friend in Times Square a guy promoting a Judah Friedlander show was so certain I was him that he started telling everyone who passed that I was playing that night. I had to tell a dozen people I wasn’t him before I decided to wait inside the movie theater…

Okay, enough of this madness. Let’s look at some photos. They are slightly NSFW thanks to a lingerie contest.

Even More Naked Juggalettes

Every year I come back from the Gathering of the Juggalos with a massive amount of naked photos of juggalettes and do a naked juggalette or juggallette porn gallery or whatever it is. This year things were a bit more sparse. Not sure if it was just me slacking on the nudity (I can only photograph so many boobs…) or the new wave of juggalo feminism or what but my naked juggalette gallery is pretty sparse this year. It’s about 25 images and not all of them are actually naked (or juggalettes).

If I were you I wouldn’t stress it too much though, because when I post a the Busey’s Beauties gallery you will get all the nudity you can deal with.  Actually I am gonna combine this gallery and the Busey’s Beauties gallery into one extra naked gallery and post the high res images to Girls Of Driven By Boredom right now.

Girls of DBB is actually 15 off right now using the code “bw” (cause of this black & white gallery) so you might as well go look at that stuff now.

Anyway, go look at the full gallery of naked juggalos and come back later in the week for the Busey Beauties stuff. Got one more post to go up today too so maybe just come back tonight…

Now click here to see 25 uncensored photos of naked juggalettes at the 2015 Gathering of the Juggalos!
