AVN House Party – 7.13.17

I have made it back to NYC and I have just a few days before I leave again for the god damn Gathering of the Juggalos. I got a ton of books to ship (buy my book!) and a lot to do in the next 5 days so I am gonna try to make this quick.

One week ago today I was in LA I hit the AVN House Party deep in the valley. AVN if you aren’t aware is the number one magazine covering the adult industry but they also do a ton of shit including throwing the AVN Awards that I have been covering for a decade. They also wrote a great review of my book!

My LA book release party was the next day and a room full of porn stars seemed like the perfect excuse to promote the book party so I hit up my friends at LA Weekly so I could make a little money while also trying to convince cute girls to come to my party. It worked out pretty well because I met Gia Paige who came to the party and hit on me and we took photos and hung out and I think now she might be coming to the Gathering of the Juggalos with me which is probably a terrible mistake but don’t tell her that because I am real psyched about it.

Anyway, there are a lot of pretty photos of pretty people in here and there is a bunch of nudity because porn stars like being naked. Oh, I should also mention that they announced Angela White and Harli Lotts are going to be the next hosts of the AVN Awards which was sort of the point of the party.

Instaxxx LA Release Party – 7.14.17

Last night I threw the second and last Instaxxx release party. The NYC one was fun, the LA version was fucking insane. I am always stressed out when I throw parties and there was plenty of shit to get stressed out over but the party was actually really good and I would have had a ton of fun if I wasn’t the one throwing it.

Superchief Gallery LA is such a great space in DTLA and I am really glad I threw the party there. That being said they don’t really have a DJ set up and apparently I either borrowed the wrong stuff or not enough stuff so Carter Cruise had to DJ off iTunes. It was pretty hilarious but she kinda killed it anyway. When her set was over she was laughing about how she only had the music on her Itunes cloud and so she ran out of music “at some point I just played an A-Trak mix for 2o minutes.”  Sorry Carter!

By the time Kate Mo$$ played it was already after 10 and the party was supposed to end at 10. It did not. Kate Mo$$ played a short insane set that was pretty perfect for the party. I unfortunately missed half of it cause I was doing shit but I am really glad they came out. It was total madness.

Joseline Kelly played after that and then I took photo of her in a bathroom cause the bathrooms at Superchief are grimy and cool looking so clearly I had to shoot some photos in there.

Speaking of girls in bathrooms, huge thanks to Charlotte Sartre and Riley Nixon for hanging out topless on a couch all night. Not sure the photo booth worked exactly how we planned it but it made the party a lot more fun.

I think that’s it. Thanks to everyone who came out and partied with me and thanks to everyone who bought a book. If you are in LA and still want one get at me quick cause I have about 10 more books than I want to take home with me.

Buy a book here.

Oh, and also I should mention that these photos have an unreasonable amount of nudity in them. Enjoy.

2017 Brooklyn Zombie Crawl – 7.2.17

Meant to get these Brooklyn Zombie Crawl pics up a few days ago but let’s just say I was a little bit preoccupied shipping out hundreds of books this week before I head to LA tomorrow for the LA Instaxxx book release. Let’s just say it’s been a crazy fucking few weeks. I have been working non-stop on Instaxxx so the zombie crawl was a nice break on Sunday.

The crawl started at the Charleston in Williamsburg where we were greeted by zombie Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD and Ben Kissel from the horror podcast Last Podcast On The Left. Kissel is running for Brooklyn Borough President was the “grand marshall” of the zombie crawl. I don’t know enough about him to endorse him but he’s for criminal justice reform and a quick look at his Twitter has progressive Tweets about immigration and LGBQT issues so I am on board with all that. Plus Borough Presidents don’t really have a lot of power so voting for him probably couldn’t hurt… although anyone who has been endorsed by Gary Johnson worries me a little bit.

We left the Charleston around 6:30 and walked to McCarren Park. For some reason there were a bunch of Guardian Angels with us which was kinda cool given that I don’t think I have seen one in the entire time I have lived in NYC. Glad they are still around. We stopped at the park quickly for a group photo and then headed to Greenpoint to stop for drinks at A-Bar. I haven’t been there since the opening, but I ran into a few friends there who had no idea the undead were coming.

From A-Bar we hit Brooklyn Bazaar for the after party where we were met by come competitive eaters in town for the 4th of July including my friend Tim “Gravy” Brown and Michelle Lesco who came in second in the women’s Coney Island Hot Dog Eating contest. Competitive eating legend Badlands Booker was there too but he was there for the entire zombie crawl.

I didn’t take a ton of photos at the after party because my band actually played it but I got some shots of the other bands including Jess O’Lantern, J and The 9’s, and Uncle Jake and the 18 Wheel Gang. Plus my friend Lunchbox did some horrifying sideshow shit and “Everything is Terrible!” headlined with their insane video projections and super weird performance. I wish I could explain the whole thing but I was back stage getting ready for our show. All I know is that they are building a pyramid of Jerry Maguire VHS tapes and I wanna fucking see that shit.

Anyway, my band closed out the night and I ate a raw potato on stage for the two dozen people who suck around after Everything Is Terrible. I have no idea how the potato got on stage but let me tell you, don’t eat a raw potato like an apple because it tastes terrible and it makes it quite difficult to sing.

I gotta pack for LA now. I will post again when I have all the details of the LA Instaxxx book release party worked out but it’s July 14th if you happen to be around. Go look at zombie photos now.

Instaxxx Release Party – 6.29.17

Last night my book Instaxxx finally was born into the world. It was pretty exciting because this is by far the biggest project I have done. My last two books were about a third of the size of Instaxxx and every part of this required way more time, money and effort than all of my other books or art shows and I still have a lot to do. I am starting to ship books out today but I have nearly 500 packages to send out. Plus there’s the release party in LA on July 14th. Should be an interesting couple of weeks…

Anyway, last night was a blast. The night started off slow but by 9pm Superchief NY was popping. It’s a massive space in Ridgewood, Queens but it actually filled up pretty nicely. I sold some books, took some photos and we ran out of beer 30 minutes before the party ended which is honestly pretty well timed. Huge thanks to Pabst Blue Ribbon for all the cases!

I of course have to thank the DJs OHAILEIGH, Cat Lady and Francesca Darling for not only DJing the party but for posing for the book. I assume it’s gotta have been the first time any of you guys DJed with naked photos of yourselves projected on the wall in front of you right? Thanks a ton!

Also thanks a bunch to Mel and her friend (and my buddy Sucklord’s girlfriend) Meg for running an insane photobooth. The idea was for Mel to take photos of people topless with Meg but they both ended up topless all night and no one seemed to mind. I feel like it was a solid idea and hopefully the LA version will work out even better. Naked friends in LA let me know if anyone wants to volunteer…

It’s at this point I should mention that I get so fucking stressed out at events like this that I do a completely terrible job of taking photos. I meant to like Instagram live and like Tweet out photos and things and I did none of that. I also took some of the worst party photos I have ever taken. If I had hired someone to shoot a party for me and they came back with these I would fire myself. Still, at least you get some sort of idea of what the party was like and you can see people drinking that cold refreshing PBR…. Gotta get those sponsor shots!

Lastly, thanks to everyone who came out and helped out with this book and this party especially everyone at Superchief. I just hope that the party at Superchief LA goes as well as last night!

Now go check out these photos and given that more than a dozen people who were in the book showed up this gallery is fairly NSFW even if the photos are not very good.

Meet Mel

I met Mel around 5am one New Years in a bar that no longer exists. She gave me her number but I think when I texted her a few days later I don’t think she had any idea who I was. We became friends anyway and I found out she was a photographer too. This would come in handy later…

When I started working on my Instaxxx book she seemed like she was interested in being in it but we didn’t really make an effort to shoot anything. On Halloween we ended up going out together and I took a topless photo of her on my couch before we went out but she was covered in fake blood and it wasn’t exactly an image I wanted in my book. Fortunately a few months later she would come up with something.

Mel had been scouting locations for a shoot of her own and she found this Motor Lodge in Queens we wanted to shoot at. Unfortunately the day we had to shoot I got hired for an event that night so we didn’t have a lot of time. We ended up renting a room at another location she had scouted, the Liberty Inn, one of the last hourly rate hotels in Manhattan. Of course an hour in a Chelsea hotel costs as much as all night in most places but we still ended up with a pretty great location for under $100.

I took a great instax of Mel that ended in my new book and she let me shoot a whole digital set with her which was awesome. Mel had never done a real nude photo shoot before so it was awesome that she trusted me enough to let me shoot her and publish the photos.

Mel is also going to be doing an Instax photo booth at the Intaxxx release party at the Superchief NY space on the 29th of June! Come get your photo taken by a babe with a babe and buy my damn book!

Now click here to see all the NSFW photos of Mel at a creepy hourly rate motel!

Ps. These pics are in high resolution at Girls of DBB!

Meet Giselle Palmer

When I was in Austin for SXSW back in March I was bored waiting for a band to play. I started refreshing my Twitter over and over again and I noticed a notification from someone named Giselle Palmer. I lurked her page and almost instantly knew I needed to take her photo. I DMed her and said “if we are ever in the same place I would love to take your photo” and she messaged me back that she lived in Austin. A few hours later I was in her apartment taking photos.

I was in the middle of working on my Instaxxx book (goes to print today!!) and I knew I could get some good shots of her in her apartment using the flash of the Instax camera. I was right. She has her own spread in my book and another photo in my next zine. Unfortunately it was nighttime and  her apartment sucked for taking digital photos. We decided to plan a second shoot during daylight hours but I only had two more days in Austin so I figured I should shoot some digital stuff just incase and I am glad I did.

Turns out that Giselle is hot enough that shitty lighting and mediocre photography doesn’t really matter! I have a gallery of more than 70 photos for you and not one of them is correctly white balanced but every one of them is real hot. I feel like I spend a lot of time telling you why I took terrible photos, but to be honest no one really cares but me. You guys are just gonna look at these photos and think “holy shit Giselle is hot” and not even notice that most of them are underexposed. I get it. Let’s move on.

So a few weeks after I left Austin, Giselle took a trip to LA to shoot some porn. She started webcamming in December of this year so in January she went to Vegas to check out the AVN Awards. While she was walking around Naughty America noticed her and flew her back out to Vegas to shoot her first porn scenes. When I met Giselle that is all she had ever shot. I don’t even think the scenes were out yet and no one had ever heard of her, but when she went to LA she never left.

Within days of visiting LA she got the biggest agent in porn and seems to be shooting nearly every day. She blew up instantly like I knew she would. She is so hot, so rad and a total creep and I mean that in the best way. Real glad I got to shoot her before she gets way too big to shoot with me.

Anyway, I thought this would be a good introduction to Giselle but just wait until you guys see the rest of the stuff we shot. On my last day in Austin we went out with Holly Beth and spent all day in a park shooting some really pretty stuff. I think you guys are gonna really love it.

Finally, I should mention there are some extra explicit shots on Girls of Driven By Boredom that you should go look at if you are into that kinda thing. All the images on there are in high resolution too… but if you don’t have Girls of DBB just go look at the rest of the photos!

Sailor Jerry Fleet Week – 5.24.17

Last night I got to hang out on an aircraft carrier which is probably the coolest location I have been to for a party in all my years of partying. Fleet week started yesterday and Sailor Jerry threw their Fleet Week kick off party on the USS Intrepid. The Intrepid is a decommissioned WWII aircraft carrier that is now a museum and apparently a fantastic place to party.

It was hard to beat the Fleet Week kick off party last year which featured Cage The Elephant and Norman Reedus but the Alabama Shakes played this year and when you mix that with the insane location it was one hell of a time.

For some insane reason they gave Daniel “Gravy” Thomas a wireless mic so most of the night featured Gravy running around like a mad man buying sailors rum and hyping the party while Ian Saint Laurent DJd. Around 9 Alabama Shakes came on and ended the party properly. I haven’t really listened to them before but I left fairly impressed.

I really like some of these photos because the scenery was so amazing. You probably are gonna wanna check these pictures out.

Medusa Machina

At the end of last year I was trying to get my Instaxxx Kickstarter finished and I needed some shots still for the Kickstarter video. I reached out to a girl named Medusa Machina who I had met years ago but I think I had only seen once since then. We had talked about shooting in the past and this would have been a perfect time to shoot her and get the shots I needed for the video.

Fortunately she was house sitting for her friend Dennis who has an amazing apartment and she had this fantasy about cutting all her clothes off. I told her I was down to shoot whatever she wanted if she was in my Kickstarter video. She was totally down and we got to work in the kitchen slowly cutting her clothes off.

The kitchen leads to the pantry which for some reason leads to a bathroom so as she was finishing cutting her clothes off we figured why not shoot her in the shower. It was probably a mistake because the lighting was horrific in there, but to be honest the shots of her showering were pretty fucking sexy. I mean you can’t go wrong with that even if the lighting is ugly as hell. Plus the flash on the polaroids looked great in there which you can see if you go pre-order my damn book.

After we shot we recorded the video and shot a bunch of polaroids for the book. One of them ended up being the main image for the Kickstarter campaign. She was reading a book and you couldn’t see any actual nudity so it was the perfect image for promoting the book in a slightly safe for work way. Plus it ended up being the postcard reward for the Kickstarter too. So everything worked out really well.

I should also probably mention that aside from the terrible lighting in the bathroom there are also waaaay to many photos in this set. There are about 100 of them when there’s probably only 20 that I would normally post, but I thought it was good to tell the whole story of her cutting off her clothes. It’s probably a bad thing if you like good photography but a great thing if you wanna see a ton of photos of Medusa so just a heads up. I should also mention you can see these same images in high resolution with “hands free browsing” over on Girls of Driven By Boredom.

Lastly, thanks a ton to Dennis for letting us use your place! Now go look at some damn photos!

Jillian Janson For Showtime

Tonight the 2017 AVN Awards air on Showtime. Yes, I agree, airing an awards show that happened four months ago does seem strange, but it’s happening tonight nonetheless. It seems like something you’d want to watch if you like award shows or the porn industry or if say you really wanted to see a performance from Flo Rida flanked by dozens of drunk porn stars. I have covered the last 7 or 8 of these things so I have actually never watched them on TV but tonight is special… because I am on it.

Jillian Janson is a fucking babe and I got to shoot her a while ago under the Santa Monica Pier. I just now realized that I have yet to post those photos but I will because they are awesome because Jillian is unreasonably hot.

Jillian was featured as part of Showtime’s AVN coverage and she has her own little segment. I was fortunate enough to be part of that segment. We did a photoshoot in a penthouse of the Hard Rock in Vegas which was pretty fantastic but Showtime wanted something a little more exciting so we went and shot on the roof.

After that we actually tried to sneak into the kitchen of the Joint nightclub to shoot. We made it all the way into the kitchen and were setting up a shot when we got caught by security. We ended up just going around the corner and shooting anyway, but the photos didn’t really come out because I am a mediocre photographer but hopefully the video looks cool.

Anyway, watch the AVN Awards tonight at 11 after you look at all these photos. They are also available in high resolution at Girls of Driven By Boredom.

Now click here to see all the photos I shot of Jillian Janson for Showtime’s AVN Awards.
