Off To See The Juggalos

It seems like just last week I turned this over to the DBB Road Trip Blog and it certainly does not seem like it’s been a year since the Gathering of the Juggalos. But it is that time again! Time for weird terrifying clown photos and fun time madness. Nudity and violence and music and all the insanity you expect from my annual Gathering of the Juggalos coverage.

This year I am covering the Gathering for the LA Weekly and associated papers as well as Noisey and Chicagoist. I have a feeling I will pick up a few other clients along the way (because I always do) and I am sure my juggalo photos will be all over the internets as per usual.

If you don’t know what the Gathering is, here is a link to 6 years of GOTJ coverage. Good luck.

For the rest of you it might be time to temporarily block me on all social networks because you are in for a week of juggalo overkill. I will try to break it up a bit, but no promises…

So head on over to my road trip blog. Hopefully I will be throwing stuff up there daily but at the very least I got a little surprise in store for you for the first update.

Riley Reid Naked In Public

When Veruca James introduced me to Riley Reid years ago the first thing Riley did was grab my junk through my jeans like she was shaking my hand. That’s when I knew Riley would be a star. Last January she won the AVN Award for Female Performer Of The Year so clearly I was right. I have been trying to take photos of Riley since that moment I met her and finally it happened last time I was in LA and boy am I glad it did.

Given my average photo shoot time of about 20 minutes it was pretty amazing to get to shoot Riley all afternoon. I went over to her place and she wasn’t ready so I got to take photos of her getting ready. I kinda love that “real life” stuff. Once she had her shit together the real photo shoot started. We drove around her neighborhood until we found this really creepy underground walkway to shoot in. I walked in there with just my point and shoot 35mm camera because I figured I would need a flash, but once I took a couple shots with my iPhone I realized the light was actually pretty awesome. I ran back to my car to get my camera and we did a whole shoot in there and gave the homeless dudes on the block a pretty good show.

From there Riley took me to this bridge that stretched across the highway. We started shooting on the bridge but before she even got naked people started honking and slowing down. It was insane how much traffic we caused, but fortunately no accidents. We kept having to leave the bridge so traffic could get back to normal and then we would go back and a traffic jam would start up again. (Side note, how many different tenses have I used in this paragraph alone? Holy shit, I need an editor.) After that we went back to Riley’s place and I shot her in the huge trunk of my rental car where I shot one of my all time favorite Instagram photos (and thanks to Riley, one of my most popular). Even my mom liked it.

The whole shoot was a ton of fun and I took a million photos. Riley’s boyfriend even gave me a really good dinner recommendation so yeah awesome day. Riley is now one of my favorite people to photograph and I hope I get to do it again sooner or later.

Since I took so many photos I decided to split them up in to two posts. This first one features all the public nudity stuff and then next gallery will feature the stuff shot at her place and the shots in my trunk. I also shot a ton of 35mm photos which will show up from time to time on my Tumblr. Riley also posted some of the 35mm stuff on her blog so check that out. And I should mention that while there’s only one bonus photo from this shoot on Girls of Driven By Boredom, this set has already been up on there for almost a week in high resolution and there’s a bunch of bonus shots in the next set. So maybe sign up? Just saying.

2016 Exxxotica Chicago

The day before the Exxxotica Chicago adult convention I had no plans on going. I had just returned from my road trip and was just starting to get my life back together (I still haven’t done my taxes) when suddenly I had a trip planned. I was supposed to shoot Charlotte Sartre on my west coast road trip but it didn’t happen so we were making plans for when she came to NYC next. A few minutes later we were talking about Chicago and her extra hotel bed and I realized I could get a super cheap miles ticket and after a quick email to Exxxotica’s press people I was on my way to Chicago.

The weekend was kinda insane and I maybe lost my mind a little bit after not sleeping at all for no reason (pretty sure you guys are familiar with my complete inability to sleep). I spent the better part of Monday sleeping and then slept 12 hours on Tuesday and suddenly I am functional again and realized the trip was a lot of fun if not exactly productive.

I did some pretty nice hotel room shoots with Charlotte and a babe I met on the last day named Jezabel Visser. Basically those shoots were the very first and very last thing I did in Chicago with a little bit of actual Exxxotica coverage in between. The rest of the time was spent moving from hotel room to hotel room in search of the next adventure. I shot three or four rolls of film and filmed a bunch of Snapchats (add me bro!) but my digital camera stayed in my bag most of the time. Should be some weird stuff of Stoya and Sydney Leathers and a few other people when I get my film developed though…

Anyway, the Exxxotica convention itself was pretty chill. I mostly was shooting on Friday night because I knew that would be the least crowded day. I got to shoot a bunch of girls at their booths and then I shoot some of the Chicago Anime Expo crossover (that would have been fun to have shot had I known before hand) and then I called it a day. So the gallery is pretty small but I feel like there is some okay stuff is in here anyway.

Samantha Rone

After two weeks a way and a few days of recovery I am fully back in action and I bring you Samantha Rone. She is adorable and you like photos of babes. So this is important for everyone.

Samantha was the first person I shot on my road trip. I actually went straight to her place from the airport. I was on no sleep and barely functional but I think we took a couple of okay photos anyway. I figured I would get something up right away because a lot of the stuff that I shot on this trip was for my friends over at Wood Rocket and it might be awhile before I can post them on this site.

I don’t really have much else to say because I am only on my second cup of coffee and I have to go pick up the 25+ rolls of film I shot from this trip. Honestly I am pretty psyched about that.

Oh, and there are some extra shots of Samantha on Girls of Driven By Boredom because of course there are.

Now click here to see a bunch of NSFW photos of Samantha Rone.

Back On The Road

Leaving town tomorrow morning for the rest of the month and I am breaking open the Road Trip Blog again. Over there I post daily updates from my travels as it’s a lot easier doing that than clogging up the main page.

I am headed to LA for five days to see my family, friends and of course take photos of some babes. My parents are out there visiting my brother and they offered a free plane ticket if I came with them. I doubled down on the free plane ticket and picked up some work and turning my parents weekend trip into a two week road trip.

I will be Instagraming, Tweeting and Snapchating a lot. I have no idea how to link my Snapchat because I barely understand how it works but my name is drivenbyboredom on there like on every fucking thing.

Now to find out more about the trip and check out my daily updates…

Head on over to the DBB Road Trip Blog!

Pulse Rally At The Stonewall Inn – 6.13.16

When a bi-polar Islamic radical kills 50 people at a gay night club people frame the tragedy the way they want. Is it about terrorism or gun laws or do we need to have a conversation about mental health? It’s easy to forget that this was fundamentally a hate crime and over 100 people were hurt or killed in one of the few places they feel safe.

Living in New York City it’s easy to pretend that homophobia is a thing of the past. I spend most of my life surrounded by people who think like I do who don’t think twice when discovering someone’s sexual identity. But last night as I stood 100 yards from the Stonewall Inn I watched a queer latino man crying and screaming to his friend about being kicked out of his home by his parents. He came to the New York City as a homeless teenager and this was his place. This was where 20 years before he was born gay men fought back and started a civil rights movement that is still being fought and the Pulse nightclub attack is another reminder that we have a long way to go.

Last night there was a rally at the Stonewall Inn to mourn the victims of the Pulse nightclub attack. I heard about it a little too late and I got there about twenty minutes before it ended. People were giving speeches but I couldn’t really hear what they were saying as I moved closer to the stage. The crowd chanted over the amplified voices “Read their names! Read their names!” Finally someone came up and began reading the names and ages. The crowd was silent except for the word “Presente” after every name was read. People held up candles and lights on their phones and people started to cry. I put down my camera and just tried to hold it together. It was one of the most emotional things I have ever been a part of.

As the crowd began to disperse I walked around talking to people and taking photos. I made my way to the memorial in front of the Stonewall Inn to take photos but also to pay my respects. I hugged a lot of strangers and was getting ready to make my way home when I ran into a group of Black Lives Matter protesters who were showing solidarity with the LGBTQ community. They were loudly chanting and being followed by a few dozen NYPD members so I followed them.

As they marched a trans woman named Mariah Lopez from the Strategic Trans Alliance for Radical Reform would speak about landmarks in the LGBTQ struggle. Someone referred to her as a revolutionary tour guide. When we got to the West Village Pier she spoke of Marsha P. Johnson a trans woman who’s body was pulled out of the Hudson after Pride Week in 1992. It was an incredibly emotional moment. There were some more words said by other activists and the names of the victims were read again and then everyone held hands and chanted. I put down my camera and held Mariah’s hand and just took part in the moment.

When I finally made my way back home I felt this crazy feeling of sadness and togetherness that I haven’t felt since probably September 12th, 2001 when I went to a vigil in DC after a plane crashed into the Pentagon a mile from my home at the time.

It’s unfortunate that it takes a tragedy to bring strangers together like what I took part in last night. And with the Pulse nightclub attacks it’s even harder to feel that closeness with your fellow man. With so many different agendas it’s hard to see that almost everyone wants this shit to stop. We just disagree on how to make that happen.

So take a look at my photos and get off Twitter and Facebook for a second and go hug a stranger.

Sammy In 35mm

Sometimes I get hit up on Instagram DM by some insanely hot babe who has never really done any modeling before and I get to take a ton of naked photos of her and then show them to you. It’s the best right?

Meet Sammy. If you were to imagine the sexual ideal of your average red blooded American man you would get Sammy. She is a cartoon of girl next door babelyness. She is not even my type and I would crawl over three brunette porn babes with next tattoos to get to her. God damn.

The first time I shot Sammy was a while ago and somehow I totally forgot about the photos (this keeps happening) and never published them. But the other day I needed to kill a few rolls of film so Sammy came over and we walked from Brooklyn to Manhattan over the Williamsburg bridge and shot 35mm photos along the way. We also shot a few photos in my apartment and a few in the bathroom at Sidewalk Cafe because it’s a block away from where I get my photos developed and I had about 6 shots left.

So I ended up shooting about 4 rolls of Sammy and I decided to post an all 35mm set of her because thats fun. All this public nudity is also fun. And guess what? I still have this full digital set of her to get up one of these days. Even more fun. Fucking rejoice.

And as always these photos are available in high resolution on Girls of DBB.

Lastly I should mention this is my full real post before I go out of town for two weeks. Headed to LA, SF, Portland and Seattle. Should be a blast. But more on that tomorrow…

Welcome To Ghostbusters HQ – 6.8.16

Last night the first of several BBQ Films screening of the original 1984 Ghostbusters went down in Williamsburg at Villain NYC. I have hyped BBQ events over and over and over again but I gotta do it again. They just keep killing it.

When people came into Villain they had to walk past actual Ecto – 1 from the new Ghostbusters film and then up to a receptionist who was the spitting image of the original Ghostbuster’s receptionist. She gave you all the information you needed to hunt ghosts and start training to become a Ghostbuster.

Throughout the massive warehouse there was one thing after another for a wanna be Ghostbuster to do. Characters from the film walked around the space harassing guests and posing for photos. There was a Ghostbusters Hall of Fame and and a photo booth where you could relive the scene where Dana is attacked by her own couch. Even Lord Vigo was there and he wasn’t even in the first film!

BBQ set up a series of spooky lectures from an actual nuclear physicist and a interactive slime station. Upstairs there was a training center where you could throw a ghost trap, try on a proton pack and play every Ghostbusters video game including the brand new one that debuted at the event last night. There was even an ESP testing center where you actually got shocked if you guessed wrong.

I realize this write up is totally disjointed and rambling but there was seriously so much going on and that was just for the pre-party. Before the movie was even shown they also had a Q&A with the creators of a documentary about Ghostbusters fans called Ghost Heads that featured pro-wrestler Zack Ryder who is apparently an insane Ghostbusters nerd. The Q&A is going to be different at every screening I believe so you never know who is going to show up if you go to any of the others.

Oh, there was also Ecto Cooler and Ecto Cooler booze which is really important.

Okay, I am sure I am missing a ton of stuff but it was a great time. Also, they showed the actual movie which almost seemed anti-climatic after all the other interactive madness. There was an interactive element to the movie as well but I will let that be a surprise for anyone going to the other screenings this weekend.

Carter Cruise Is Back

Let’s talk about Carter Cruise. She is one of my favorite people and is real cute and really fun to shoot. She bought us NSFW tattoos for my birthday last year, we went to a wedding together and I only rarely make fun of her for being an EDM DJ. That’s the sign of a true friend.

Carter and I shot these photos about a year ago and I found them at the same time I found those photos of Jade Nile that I just posted. I also found a set of Ava Dalush that I posted exclusively to Girls of Driven By Boredom to make up for not updating it for a couple weeks.

These photos are real fun cause Carter is real fun and she has this pretty rad Girl Power shirt on which is real up my alley. I haven’t really had enough coffee to lecture you guys on sex positive feminism but let’s just say I want to live in a world where a woman can be sexual, take naked photos and still be taken seriously as a human.

Speaking of sexual, there’s a few extra sexual photos of Carter on Girls of DBB so aside from the exclusive Ava Dalush set now you have another reason to sign up.

Now click here to see the rest of the photos of the amazing Carter Cruise!
