And Now The Rest Of The 2016 Gathering Of The Juggalos…

Okay! This is it! The final 2016 Gathering of the Juggalos post and now I can go on vacation! Because I was just trying to figure out how to get these up as fast as possible this gallery is massive. This gallery has over 400 images and I am gonna scroll through them now and see if I see anything worth talking about. Let’s go!

Most of these are just random crowd shots and juggalo portraits that didn’t make it into any of the other galleries. I shot a lot of face paint and tattoos and signs for Noisey and the LA Weekly (links below) so there’s a lot of that stuff in here. Can you spot the selfie these girls made me take with them? There’s a bunch of Wolfpac and Busey Beauty stuff in here so lot’s of eye candy if you are creepy like that. There are some party photos in here too from the late night party tents they have set up. Also these images are all in order so you will get to night time photos and when day time photos hit again that’s the next day. That’s probably common sense but whatever.

Day three and day four have some juggalo fight club stuff in it. I have been covering that for years but it didn’t really deserve it’s own post this year. Sadly one of my favorite juggalos, Nebraska Warrior, finally lost his title to a wrestler named Strychnine which I assume he spells incorrectly cause that’s a real juggalo thing to do. It was a good match though. There are a bunch of photos from Miss Juggalette which I shot for the LA Weekly. It’s just girls standing on stage but there was a nice moment when the winner talked about her social anxiety and how she just entered to help get over her fear. Everyone started crying and hugged her. I was rooting for her because she did a Jessica Rabbit performance and was also not wearing underwear.

Anyway that’s kinda it. Lemme just throw up the links to all my coverage down here so I can come back to this later to see everything if I need to find it and you can lurk it as well if you haven’t already.

Never Ending Naked Juggalettes

After writing 1200 words about fucking wrestling I think life calls for me to make this post a lot god damn shorter. This is everyone’s favorite post of the year for some reason and it’s my second to last Gathering of the Juggalos post. I am on a bus to DC where I am getting picked up tomorrow to go on a mini vacation so let’s just enjoy some weird juggalette nudes and let’s all move on with our lives okay?

So the last few years there’s been less nudity than normal at the Gathering. The Wolfpac girls seem to wear clothes now and even the Busey Beauties were fairly well dressed. Luckily juggalettes give no fucks about clothing or standards of beauty and there were plenty of horrifyingly wonderful boobs to go around.

I also should mention that while most of the Busey Beauties were quite clothed, Mike Busey brought out a woman aptly named Jenny Jizz who was just blowing dudes all weekend. At some point if you bought a Busey Beauties t-shirt you got a free blow job. Like, I am all for promiscuity but blowing 50 juggalos without using condoms seems dangerous for humanity. People keep asking me about those photos but I am not gonna post shit like that on my site… Fortunately for you scumbags I did post them on Girls of Driven By Boredom because I like money. So go fucking sign up now if you haven’t.

Okay, this post is way too long already. Let’s look at some photos. Btw, normally I photoshop the Insane Clown Posse’s faces over the images I post below but I found a few mildly safe for work images in the edit so I don’t have to deal with that shit on a bus.

And one more thing… If you want to see past naked juggalette posts just click here.

Music @ 2016 Gathering Of The Juggalos

Every year there’s a couple artists that play the Gathering of the Juggalos that you just can’t believe are playing. I have seen everyone from George Clinton to Bobby Brown to three different members of WuTang. This year I was pretty excited to see Bone Thugs N Harmony, Slick Rick and Gwar.

Bone Thugs aren’t really one of my favorite groups or anything but I thought it would be cool to see and it was. Photographically it was pretty impossible to get a decent group shot but not mad I got to see them. Gwar was also really hard to shoot but for a completely different reason. The inside of my hat is still pink from the blood of a decapitated puppet of Barack Obama. Slick Rick was just kinda boring to photograph because he mostly just stands there with mic in his face but honestly it was still fucking amazing. I am a pretty serious Slick Rick fan. Like I get pretty deep with him unfortunately I only got to see about four songs because of other work, but it was still next level for me.

Also great was Tech N9ne who plays every year and this year his some time collaborator Hopsin played too. I really dig both of them so that was fun. They are both really easy to photograph too because they put on a hell of a show and don’t spray any camera destroy substances at the crowd (weird, right?)

Aside from that there wasn’t much I wasnted to shoot. I the performance of Violent J’s Wizard of Oz themed musical “Wizard of the Hood” and that was super weird. I probably should have watched the whole thing but they only let me shoot two songs and I sort of bounced after that. I of course shot ICP but I had a really early fight to catch and I have seen them a bunch of times so I left after I got a few shots. I also shot Psychopathic Records artist Anybody Killa and “West Coast juggalos” Kottonmouth Kings. Oh and this rapper Rittz who I have seen before at the Gathering and is on Tech N9ne’s label.

Aside from that I didn’t really see any other music. None of my clients really wanted any band photos even though I was shooting for both Noisey and Rolling Stone. That being said after I shot Gwar I pitched Noisey on it and they actually published my show review. It’s always weird when people let me write shit, but I appreciate it.

Read my Gwar show review in Noisey here.

So yeah, um, go look at band photos if you want. The Gwar ones are at least somewhat interesting and maybe you will care about them. Honestly if it were up to me I would never have to take or look at a photo of a band ever again, but that’s just me.

The Best Of The 2016 Gathering Of The Juggalos

I have returned from the Gathering of the Juggalos and although I slept for an unreasonable amount of time I still feel physically destroyed after not sleeping or eating real food for four straight days. If you don’t know by now the Gathering is the weirdest music festival on the planet thrown each year by the Insane Clown Posse. This year, and the last two years it has been in a town called Thornville, Ohio just outside of Columbus. Like most festivals the Gathering features a lot of sex, drugs and music, but the Gathering is unique in that it also includes wrestling and bareknuckle boxing and strippers and no real security or pretension of safety. Oh, did I mention everyone is dressed like clowns?

This is my 7th straight Gathering of the Juggalos and I will probably keep going back because it’s impossible to take a bad photo there (although I try my best) and people keep paying me. I have covered the Gathering for probably two dozen media outlets and it seems like someone always wants me to shoot something or write something and I’m not mad about it even if my brand has become juggalo adjacent.

I am (thankfully) going on a mini vacation tomorrow so I have broken the hundreds of images I have for you guys down into 5 total posts with six total galleries. The plan is to get two up today, two up tomorrow and then one final massive update on Thursday featuring over 400 images in one post. I gotta get these up quick so we can all move on with our lives and I can enjoy a few days of my vacation.

This gallery serves as an intro to the festival coverage as well as a place to put all my best images so if I need to come back later to find a photo it will probably be in this gallery. That makes sense right? Didn’t want to shoot my metaphoric load right away, but it’s too late and it’s happening…

These are my favorite images from the 2016 Gathering of the Juggalos and you should click here to look at them.

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…
