And There Goes 2011…

It’s New Years Eve and we are all about to be partying and what not like we all do at  this time of year but I wanted to look back on the year and talk about three things that really made a difference in my life in 2011 and I am looking forward to them still being a big part of my 2012. 2011 was a pretty great year for me and I hope 2012 is even better for me and you and everyone who reads this damn website.  Thanks for paying attention.

1) Fucking Bullshit

I worked in some way with music for most of my life. When I was 15 I started a zine and shortly after founded a record label. I started booking shows and taking photos of bands. Later in life I managed a band for 5 years, I started booking dance parties and went on tour with bands and DJ’s and even worked in the studio with bands. I did everything you could imagine except be in a band. And like every single person who works in music all I really wanted to do was be in a band.  Finally in 2011 I got my chance and I started my punk rock cover band Fucking Bullshit and we are somehow way better than we ever should have been and it’s more fun than I ever thought it would be.  We get the New Years started with a bang with our next free show January 5th at Don Pedro’s in Brooklyn. Come see us!

2) Dolfans NYC

I have been running the New York City Miami Dolphins fan club for a few years but this year I think we really established ourselves. Even though the Dolphins have sucked we have had a big group at our bar, Third & Long, every single week. We brought a HUGE group to the Meadowlands for Jets and Giants games and we are starting to be taken very seriously by the Miami Dolphins organization. Their Weekly TV show did an interview with us and we have had more and more contact with the team. 2012 seems like it is going to be even bigger for us as we are helping to promote the 40th Anniversary reunion of the 1972 undefeated Dolphins team in North Jersey. If the Dolphins ever started wining some games we would be in Phin Heaven.

3) Travel

2011 was amazing for me as far as adventuring is concerned. The year started off with a trip to LA and Vegas and then my yearly trip to SXSW but this year really got crazy when I went back to LA and ended up driving across the country. I ended up being out of town for 28 days and I did almost no actual paid work and was living on savings and ad money. Fortunately when I got back in NYC I met the Sailor Jerry Rum PR girl Dana Dynamite who over the last six months has become a great friend and Sailor Jerry has hired me to work Lolapalooza and then Voodoo Fest in New Orleans and then Fun Fun Fun in Austin and even Art Basel in Miami. Even though I rarely drink alcohol, Sailor Jerry is the perfect client. Their brand is all about tattoos and partying and half naked tattooed girls. They send me out to amazing parties and I get to talk bands into getting free Sailor Jerry tattoos. I even got a free tattoo out of the deal. It’s been pretty fucking amazing.  2012 is looking like it will be just as adventurous as on the 12th I head to LA for a week vacation before heading to Vegas to shoot the AVN Awards and then back to LA for a few days before heading to Aspen to cover the X Games for Sailor Jerry.

So yeah, 2011 was fucking amazing and assuming the world doesn’t end 2012 should be even better. But looking back there was some sadness too and I want to take a moment to remember the people I lost last year. My friend good tragically Colin died of brain cancer in his mid 20’s and my closest grandparent, my grandma Jo finally passed in her 90’s. My grandmother has been one of the closest people in my life so losing her killed me but losing a friend at 25 was so much more tragic. But with death comes new beginnings and 2012 will mark the release of a project I have been working on since the week my best friend Ross Harman died in late 2010. His tribute album will be released in late February and while it will never bring my friend back it will go a long way to helping me deal with his loss.

Let’s hope no one reading this has to deal with any of that loss in 2012 and as a fantastic year.  Happy New Years everyone!

Jessica Love

A long time ago I took a topless photo of Jessica Love during an amazing game of Truth Or Dare during after hours in the back of a Lower East Side bar. Months and months later as I started putting together an edit of the book I am working on that photo kept popping up and every time someone would see it they would stop and stare at it and wonder if her tattoos were real. It’s not every day you see a girl as beautiful as Jessica with face tattoos and evil hands Janet Jacksoning her boobs. People were pretty much blown away by this photo… unfortunately the photo kinda sucked.

I finally contacted Jessica to ask if we could do a real shoot and she agreed. Unfortunately she was in London for a few months. When she got back I was crazy busy and we didn’t get a chance to shoot until the other day.  We did two mini shoots, the first of which you are about to see.  We shot this one in her kitchen with assistance from her roommate Dylan’s new puppy. What do you get when you mix hot naked girls with crazy tattoos and adorable chihuahua puppies? Internet magic. Enjoy the NSFW wonderment.

A Fucking Bullshit Christmas

When my punk cover band Fucking Bullshit performed our last show we decided to do a Christmas tune. We covered Fuck Christmas by Fear and I disrobed before the song and performed it wearing nothing but a Christmas thong and a Santa hat. I asked my friend Sasha to film it since she is a filmmaker and photographer but evidently she was drunker than I thought and she managed to miss Fuck Christmas completely. I was planning on releasing the Fuck Christmas footage on my website on Christmas day. Alas it was not meant to be.

The one song Sasha did film was our encoure, Depression by Black Flag. We were not planning on playing it and hadn’t practiced it in weeks but someone tucked a dollar bill into my g-string during the last song so I told the crowd if they paid me $10 I would perform another song. They threw enough money at me so we carried on. Unfortunately I was completely wasted at this point and didn’t remember how it started and we just sort of butchered the song. I wouldn’t even bother posting it except the ending is really amazing and this small Asian man comes up to me and asks to take a photo of me. There is also a lot of footage of me pretty much naked and playing with my genitals on stage. I am sure you will enjoy it a lot but make sure if nothing else you watch everything from the 1:45 mark on…

Merry Fucking Christmas.

Christmas Vacation

I am going to my parents house in DC for five or six days and I almost never take photos when I am there so I have a  feeling I am not gonna update much while I am gone. I do have a tiny update planned for Christmas and some nudes to go up early next week.  I will be updating my Tumblr and Twitter of course so follow those things. I also have an iPhone and an Instagram now. I don’t know how to link to that but my name on there is “drivenbyboredom” obviously.

In the Christmas spirit I will leave you with some holiday cheer featuring my favorite X-mas songs. I hope you enjoy them and I will see you guys in a few days.

Christmas Zombie Beauty Pageant – 12.18.11

The fifth annual Drop Dead Gorgeous zombie beauty pageant was held at Beauty Bar on Sunday but this year it was holiday themed. Professional zombie wrangler Doug Sakmann hosted dressed as a zombie elf and Michael T co-hosted using his normal holiday cheer. Evidently the blood wet t-shirt part of the contest was canceled due to them still trying to clean blood off the walls at Beauty Bar after last year’s total fucking insanity, but there was still a lot of gore to go around.

The contest involves three parts. There is a question and answer part to introduce the girls followed by a kinda underwhelming lingerie contest. The contest then ends with a brain eating contest of course. Each round is scored out of a total of 5 points by a four person panel of judges.  The judges were my friend and dominatrix Goddess Shay, Our Lady of Perpetual PMS from the Gorgeous Ladies of Blood Wrestling, Jessica Rajs from Gorgeous and Gory and Steve Dash who played Jason in Friday The 13th 2.

Wait a second… can we talk about how this event is called Drop Dead Gorgeous and features two judges that run things involving the word gorgeous?  There is absolutely nothing gorgeous about anything going on with this event… Also I have no idea how to spell the word gorgeous so I have to spell check it every single time. Just typing this all is very trying. Moving on…

Anyway, this green chick with giant boobs won and everyone went home bloody. Huzzah.

Sailor Jerry Presents: The Dirtbombs – 12.17.11

My old pals Sailor Jerry decided to throw a party at The Gramercy Theater and they had The Dirtbombs and White Mystery play. The Dirtbombs are a pretty legendary band so I expected them to be awesome but White Mystery were a pleasant surprise. I had never heard of them but it turns out we have a bunch of mutual friends and they pretty much kick ass. The party was such a good time that I stayed an hour later than I was supposed to and Santa Clause showed up and got drunk on Sailor Jerry. You cannot fuck with that. I gotta go shoot some pics for XXL Magazine in a bit so I gotta make this quick.

I know it is super far away but you need to come to this shit. We are playing at 9:45 and we are playing with Graffiti Monsters and Ritz Riot which are rad bands that you should see too.

Wolf Party – 12.13.11

Let’s make this quick. I have to go to some holiday parties and buy an iPhone because T-Mobile is Hitler so I can’t be sitting here with you people talking about fun times and whatever is going on in New York nightlife these days. The important things to note are as follows.

Remember Veronica Rose from yesterday? She convinced me to go to the Wolf Party which is always a weird time so I showed up. I know things always get weird when you party with Burning Angels and it was a good call. Things got weird and her boobs were out a lot. NSFW of course.

Nextly, there was an acrobat doing crazy things which was awesome. I pretty much hate everything having to do with hula hoops but if you can put your chin on the floor and step on your own face I have mad respect.

And finally you just need to look at all these photos cause there are a lot of hot girls making out and getting half naked and a lot of really fun trannies doing fun tranny thing and causing scenes.

And that’s all I got. Click here to see all the photos from the Wolf Party at Le Souk.

Veronica Rose

So Veronica Rose is the newest Burning Angel to move to NYC. Back in the day there were tons of naked tattooed porn babes roaming the streets of this city but since my homie Joanna Angel fled Brooklyn for the barios of LA there has been a drought of Burning Angels in New York. Luckily Veronica Rose just moved to New York and she is totally awesome and mildly insane which is what I look for in a human.  I partied with her last night at Le Souk and it was a pretty wild time. There will be pictures later.

Anyway Veronica came over to my apartment after band practice one night and I didn’t have a place to shoot but I did have brand new Fucking Bullshit t-shirts (art by Nicholas Gazin!) so I cut one up and put her in it. I figured it would be pretty punk rock to put her on the toilet for some reason so we did the shoot in my bathroom in like twenty minutes and then last night at 7am (yes I realize that 7am is considered the morning to most people) I took a bunch of sleeping pills and edited and color balanced the images. Note to self: In the future do not color balance on sleeping pills.

Now I know you are thinking to yourself… Veronica’s boobs are fucking life changing, but what I was really ogling were those amazing t-shirts. I saw the naked girl wearing the black ones and I loved them. But how can I get one for myself?! That’s easy my friends,  you can come see Fucking Bullshit, the worlds greatest punk rock cover band.  We are playing THIS FRIDAY at Ding Dong Lounge way the fuck in the Upper West Side. I know that sounds like a distance that is impossible to cover but it turns out there are Subways that will take you there from nearly anywhere in New York City. The show costs $6 and the shirts available in both red and black and black and white are available for just ten American Dollars or $40 Canadian. We play at 9:45 with Ritz Riot and Graffiti Machines.  The show will be Christmas themed and I promise that I will either bleed or get naked. Bring a camera.

Click here for more details on the show via the Facebook invite.
