Same Old City Zine Release

This Sunday I am going to be part of Cultural Traffic NY at the Hester Street Fair. Cultural Traffic is an art fair that takes place in a bunch of cities including London, Miami and the LA fair that I was part of late last year. There are a bunch of great exhibitors and you can come out and get books and zines and art prints and all sorts of stuff. Dashwood Books, my favorite book store in NYC, will be there as will Richardson, my buddy Seth Olenick and a ton of other vendors. 

I will be selling a bunch of my books, zines and prints including some sold out stuff, rare items and special editions and random merch that I don’t sell in my online store like DBB shot glasses that are too expensive to be worth shipping. Oh, and there will be a postcard rack with a ton of postcards because I bought one as decoration in my living room so I had to fill it.  I will also of course sign anything you want.

Specially for the fair I re-released my NYC photo zine Same Old City. It’s probably my favorite zine and it’s one of my craziest. Tons of sex and violence and street photography and general mayhem. It’s been long sold out so it seemed like a good time to bring it back. The new zine has four extra pages (and 5 new photos because I swapped one out), a slightly new cover and is limited to justy 100 copies. You can order it online now, but if you grab it at the fair it will be $10 instead of $12.

Okay, that’s all I got for now. Just wanted to tell you guys about the artfair and the new (?) zine. Hope to see a bunch of you guys Sunday. Online orders will ship Monday.

Cultural Traffic LA Arts Fair

If you are reading this I am in Los Angeles. I am in town for a few reasons but the important one is that on the 18th, that’s this Sunday, I am going to be at the Cultural Traffic Art Fair at That That Gallery. I will be selling my new zine Fuck LA (you should buy it!!) as well as Instaxxx, a bunch of other zines and prints and stuff. I am pretty psyched for it. 

That That Gallery is located at 4405 W Jefferson Blvd in Los Angeles and goes from 11am until 8pm. It’s completely free and there should be a ton of amazing stuff for sale there. I am splitting the table with my friends at Wood Rocket and they will have a bunch of weird things for sale like enamel pins, adult coloring books and new posters from vintage porn classics like Debbie Does Dallas and The Devil In Miss Jones. There are a bunch of great exhibitors as well including my friends at Paperwork NYC and rad publishers like Kill Your Idols and Richardson.

I don’t really have much more to mention in this post, but since I might not update again until after Thanksgiving (Gonna try and get some new pictures up this week but no promises) I figured I would give you guys something to hold you off. I took some photos of one of my friends dressed like a topless pigeon for some reason. I am not sure what I just said makes complete sense so let me explain. My friend asked me if I would take photos of her topless wearing a pigeon mask walking around NYC. We went to Times Square but it was raining so we went to Applebee’s like midwestern tourists and then finally took some photos of her topless hanging out with weird people who dress like the Statue of Liberty for money. The photos are real silly but she was happy with them and now you can look at them if you subscribe to Girls of Driven By Boredom. If you don’t then you are out of luck. It’s like $25 a year so I don’t know what you are doing not signing up.

I am gonna go hang out with my girlfriend now because we are celebrating our 1 year anniversary today. That’s pretty adorable right? Maybe you guys could look at the photos we ever took. I posted them right before we started dating officially so that’s extra cute. Sorry.

Okay, that’s enough. Here’s a flyer. See you guys sooner or later.

Once again, I am leaving for South By Southwest in Austin, TX. Between the last decade covering it as media and the years I was going as a music manager I have been roughly 15 years in a row. I thought it was 14 actually but if you include 2004 and this year that’s 15 right? Who cares? Anyway, I love Austin but SXSW is kinda a shitshow now, but at least the food is good, I get to see a ton of old friends and I am working my ass off while I am there.

If you happen to be in Austin for SXSW you should RSVP for the Brooklyn Bowl party that I’m shooting. It’s at the Scoot Inn on the East Side and it’s sponsored by Sailor Jerry and Harley Davidson who also happen to be the people who hired me so go buy some rum and a motorcycle but not at the same time. I am also shooting this boxing match mixed with music because of course on Saturday that should be pretty interesting. I’ve never actually shot a boxing match before which should be fun.

Also if you are in town you should go see the movie Wobble Palace which my brother edited. It’s in the film festival and I really enjoyed it. Here’s the review if you want to know more about it. Quick tangent, my brother also edited the TV show Take My Wife and both seasons are now available on iTunes. It’s about a queer couple trying to make it in comedy together while also trying to make sure their relationship doesn’t fall apart. It’s really, really fucking good and totally relatable despite me being a straight white dude and all. Here’s a review of that too…

Okay, since I probably won’t update this again until next week let me plug stuff as always. You can get my books and zines here . And since I am gonna be gone for a while I uploaded a mini gallery of my friend Meg to Girls of Driven By Boredom. I did a shoot with her yesterday and at the end fucked around with my new LED lights. I will post the real shoot on here eventually but the mini shoot at the end is up on Girls of DBB now.

Okay, that’s all I got. Make sure to check out my Twitter and Instagram while I am gone for a ton of stuff from SXSW. And hopefully I will see some you guys at the Brooklyn Bowl Party in Austin.

Instaxxx LA Release Party

Just figured I would do a post about the LA book release party. It’s essentially just the email I sent to my book’s Kickstarter backers but I got shit to do so sorry for being repetitive…

The party is on Friday at Superchief LA. 7-10pm although we will probably go a bit late. Should be a hell of a party.

Once again all three DJs are in the book. Porn babes Carter Cruise and Joseline Kelly probably make more music than they do porn and my friend Ivy Diamond is gonna be opening the night. I actually once shot her at the very location we’re having the party.

We also have a special set from Kate Mo$$ which should probably be insane. Just google them and look at the pictures and be prepared from some wild shit.

We are once again doing an Instax photo booth and I got Charlotte Sartre and Riley Nixon there to take naked photos with. Oddly I haven’t figured out a photographer yet but that should be pretty easy.

The party is free and there is free beer and it should be a lot of fun. Hope to see some of you soon! Here’s the flyer. The end.

Instaxxx Release Party!

My book Instaxxx is finally here! I start shipping it on Friday which is going to be a fucking insane undertaking given that I have 450 packages to send out but before I even get there I have to throw a big party.

If you live in NYC come out! We are going to be at the new Superchief spot in Ridgewood. It’s 1628 Jefferson Ave – right by the Myrtle-Wyckoff L and M trains. The party is from 8-11 and it’s gonna be a good time.

All three DJs spinning modeled in the book and my friend Mel is doing an Instax photo booth which should be interesting even though I am not 100% sure I have models locked down for it. But fuck it. Let’s party.

The event is free and the book will be on sale for the $30 pre-order price. We will have my new zine Not Safe on sell as well. Speaking of pre-orders, you have until the time I wake up tomorrow to get Instaxxx for the pre-order price before it goes up to $40.

Lastly I should mention that I am doing an LA release party as well. That will be July 14th at the Superchief LA space. Details to come soon!

Instaxxx Kickstarter Ends Today!

The Kickstarter for my new book of nude instant film ends in a few hours! At 4:45pm EST (1:45 PST) the Kickstarter will end and while you will still be able to pre-order the book you will no longer get any of the fun rewards like the signed print that comes with all Kickstarter versions!

Kickstarter backers get more stuff too like a secret bonus zine for the price of shipping, a super cheap Kickstarter exclusive enamel pin and access to a behind the scenes blog and probably a solid discount coupon for Girls of Driven By Boredom.

Even if you can’t afford/ don’t want/ don’t want your wife to see the book you can still help out a bunch by just throwing in $1. Right now Instaxxx is the 57th most backed photo book in Kickstarter history and about 25 backers short of cracking the top 50. Would love to hit that in the last few hours. Seems a bit out of reach but raising $19,000 did too!

There are still a few Instax signed by porn stars left too. Missy Martinez (see below) and Jillian Janson both have a couple of signed Instax left. The ones of Jillian are kinda extra special because I shot them while being filmed by Showtime for their AVN Awards program so you might see one of your Instax on TV if you get one…

Anyway, that’s it I got no more promotion left in me. Just a few hours left and it’s over!

Back Instaxxx on Kickstarter now!

Also, just FYI tomorrow I am in a Valentine’s Day art show called “Dirty” at Tender Trap. It’s the third annual one but the first one I have had art in. I have a photo of Heather Vahn in it and will be taking some photos because I haven’t really shot any parties in a while and why the fuck not? Maybe I can take some dirty photos, make out with a stranger or two and celebrate my new book. Seems like a reasonable way to spend Valentine’s Day right?

Punk Rock & Christmas Cards

1) My punk band is playing our second show ever on Saturday at Otto’s Shrunken Head. Okay, technically that is not even close to true… they have been around for a decade but this is only their second show with me in the band. Okay, that’s not really true either because they played a show when I was in LA last month without me but whatever… it’s only the second show I have played since my last band broke up in like 2012 or something so I am excited about it.

The show is free and we play at 10. It’s the 28th anniversary party for a band called Iconicide. Not sure why a 28th anniversary party is a thing but that’s a long fucking time to be in a band. The last time I played a show with them I gave the singer the mic to do a Black Flag cover with me and he kinda screamed all over it and I was wildly drunk so I decided to flip him over and he hit his head into a cinderblock that was keeping the drums from moving. He was a good sport about it and I am real excited to play with them again. That show was fun as hell.

2) The Driven By Boredom Christmas Card is almost here. You can get on the list for one American dollar. In the past I haven’t charged but if I do it through Etsy it’s super fucking easy for me to deal with it. After the fees and price of the cards and postage and shit I am not making any money I assure you, this is just the easiest way for me to deal with it.

If you aren’t familiar with my christmas cards they are pretty epic. I did make a half assed one a couple years ago but the first two were real solid. The most recent one is pretty great although I must admit they weren’t printed very well. That being said if you want to horrify your friends and loved ones there’s nothing like having one of my Christmas cards on your refrigerator. Also it says Happy Holidays on it instead of Merry Christmas because I am doing my part in the war on Christmas.

Plus if you have all three you can watch my life fall apart in front of your very eyes! Who is that nearly tattoo free babe with the incredible ass? Look at that long luxurious hair looking so slender (in comparison to the Fat Jew)? Oh god, who is that 30 something on the new card? What has become of his life?


Oh, and I got some new postcards made at the same time as the Christmas cards that are for sale now if you care about that sort of thing…

Christmas Is Coming...

Public Nudity Zine Pre-Order & Party!

I have another new zine coming out. Seriously… another one. I just keep cranking these things out cause I like flooding my living room with heavy boxes and packing peanuts. I think this one is really good and unlike my Arts zine this one has a bunch of nudity which I just need to accept is the only reason any of you ever come here…

“Public” is a public nudity zine in collaboration with my friends over at PopPorn. It’s 44 pages, 56 photos, and more boobs than I want to count right now, but I recommend you do that when you get your copy. At a mere $10 this thing is a god damn steal! And for $40 you can get a copy PLUS a 5″x7″ print of a really rad photo of April O’Neil and Shay Laren who are total fucking babes. Both the zine and the print will be signed by me and the print is numbered out of 25 as well.

Now, for the important thing! We are throwing a party!

The zine comes out February 10th and we are throwing a rager at Leftfield in the Lower East Side. The party starts at 9 and goes all night. Yeah, it’s on a fucking Wednesday because weekends are for assholes. The party is being thrown by myself, PopPorn and Boobs of Bushwick. Do you remember the last time I threw a party with Boobs of Bushwick? That shit was out of control.

We got Prince Terrence DJing, live naked photo shoots, topless girls selling books, a clothing optional dress code and fucking total madness all night. Plus you can come by a zine so that’s important. PopPorn is gonna be giving out free porn and I even have some hats to give away from my Vegas trip. Nothing puts an outfit together like a hat advertising your love for interracial porn!

The party is free, the zine is $10 and the booze will be priced at a cost dictated by what the market will bare given that we live in a capitalist system governed by the principals of the free market. Party forever.

Oh, and one more thing. Since I am promoting a public nude zine that means you will get a bunch of public nude photos over the next two weeks so even if you are a cheap fucking bastard and don’t live in NYC you can still enjoy the zine release anyway. Check back next week for some really good sets!

Now go and pre-order Public already! You need it in your life!

Zine Friends On Saturday!

I am really excited about Zine Friends this weekend. I know I wrote about it a little bit last week but I wanted to do an official post since I have been working my ass off getting ready for it. Zine Friends is a zine fair put on by Killer Acid and Wizard Skull at Cotton Candy Machine in Williamsburg. It’s part of Comic Arts Brooklyn, it’s happening this Saturday from 11am to 7pm and I will be there the whole time.

An yeah, I realize that I should not be excited about sitting in a chair for 8 hours but I am real happy to be doing my own table. I have sold stuff at zine fair in the past but never had my own table. I went out and bought dumb stuff like displays for the zines and things like that and made a bunch of new stuff for the fair.

The main thing I have for the fair is my new Arts zine. It features black and white 35mm photos of artists with their art. It’s my first collaborative zine and the first one to feature exclusively black and white photos. Very different from anything I have done before. Plus it has that art school turtle on the cover which is awesome.

I will be of course selling my older zines/ books like Same Old City, Dinner With Igor and Food Tattoos. I might break out the artist proof editions of Fuck LA that I was saving for something special and maybe even some proof pages from the long sold out Get Your Kicks. Oh, and I will have the super rare What Happens In Vegas photo album!

A big thing I have for zine friends is a ton of photo prints. I don’t normally sell 8″x10″ prints because they don’t make me enough money to make it worth to pull images and print them, but I made a ton of 8″x10″ prints just for Zine Friends (and hopefully future zine fairs!). I will also have some Polaroids including some I have never published or made available for sale and some left over prints from Dinner With Igor and Fuck LA.

On top of that I will have Driven By Boredom shot glasses which at the moment you can only get as part of the DBB Grab Bag, I will have a bunch of post cards and stickers I even made some new buttons! Plus there should be a big surprise that I collaborated on with another artist… but I don’t want to give that away until it’s completely finished. It’s pretty fantastic though…

I think that’s all I can remember for now, but I will probably bring a bag full of stuff from my archives. I have some old DBB shirts laying around and I am sure I can find some other crap around my apartment that won’t really be for sale unless you ask about it. So if you read this, and can can make it out and care, let me know.

I guess that’s all I have to say. I will of course be signing anything you want and I am sure some of the artists there in the zine will sign stuff as well. Oh, and everything will be on sale and cheaper than on my Etsy store and you can barter with me and shit. Now here’s Facebook invite and here’s the flyer. See you in Brooklyn Saturday…

Zine Friends!
