A Juggalo grabbed me from behind and got a woman all wet

There I was, a mild mannered guy, attending the 15th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos, still standing in the pit as Insane Clown Posse ended their set on Saturday night, when all of a sudden I felt a hand on my shoulder and realized that one of those scary, gang-banging Juggalos wanted me to turn around.

Well, I guess it wasn't entirely out of the blue, since a few hours earlier, that same "terrifying" Juggalo had warned me that this was going to happen. He had grabbed me as I was walking through the festival grounds and told me that he was going to be looking for me at the end of ICP's show. I figured there wasn't much chance that he would actually find me in all of the chaos, but I had forgotten that I was wearing a bright yellow Tyvek suit, and carrying two cameras, which made me pretty noticeable. 

So, I spun around in response to the hand on my shoulder, and saw that there were 3 or 4 Juggalos surrounding me. Over the next minute, things happened pretty fast. It started with him grabbing a Juggalette and pulling her in front of me, shouting something to her that I couldn't hear over the roar of the crowd. 

Then he pulled something from his pocket and got down on one knee....

So, this year's Gathering had both a wedding and at least one proposal.

And I believe that she said, "Yes."

Day 2 of GOTJ 2013, with more wet t-shirts, more WOLFPAC girls, and more random titties. Do you miss all of this as much as I do? Wouldn't it be great if we could get together and do it again sometime?

That sounds like a good plan, but until then sit back and enjoy Thursday at the 14th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos - NSFW Part 2

The Gathering of the Juggalos? Yeah, I remember that.

Day 2

Day 2

Do you remember last year's GOTJ? Cave-In-Rock, Illinois? Hogrock Campground? Does any of that sound familiar?

Even though we're not be going back to the same location this year, we'll always have fond memories of the Gathering on the Ohio River. But maybe it wasn't the best place after all. Did you know that Cave-In-Rock got it's start over 200 years ago as a hideout for "fugitive criminals on the run from civilized society?" I mean, hell, Juggalos don't want to accidentally get a bad reputation from hanging out in a place with that kind of history.

Day 2

But... it was fun. Maybe you can't remember everything that happened. Or, God forbid, maybe you didn't get to go last year. Well, brother, I got you covered. Better late than never, hunh? 

I've finally gotten a chance to work on shots from Thursday, August 8, 2013, better known to history as Day 2 of the Mutha Fucking 14th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

Take a look and see what was going on that day. There were some clouds, a bit of rain, and a whole lot of wet t-shirts.


Undead Viking Mafia

I got a chance to catch some old friends play this week at The Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta - Undead Viking Mafia. I used to break the law with these guys, but breaking the law doesn't seem to have the appeal that it used to. Now they just shred faces.

Check 'em out and stuff. They're the shiznizzle.

Also playing was another local band, The Voltage Cult, and the headliner was Castle, who was touring from San Francisco.

Zombie Soul Survivor

So, I saw this thing about zombies and, well, ya know... zombies.

Zombie Soul Survivor

We start with 200 people, put them together in a mock village, introduce the zombie virus and watch as it spreads. Participants will be required to negotiate a course through the town and into the woods. They will be required to perform tasks and solve problems all while being subjected to zombies. If they are infected they become one of the walking dead and join the zombie mob. If not they advance until there is only the sole survivor!

So, of course, I took some kids there, because... well... zombies.

The Gathering of the Juggalos should have been here.

BuzzFeed picked up my pictures of Gulliver this week and they called the place strange. Sure, I guess, but my first reaction is that the Gathering of the Juggalos is still the strangest and most wonderful place in the world.

Then it hit me. 10,000 Juggalos camping beside Gulliver's body on the side of Mount Fuji would have been fucking amazing.

The Lilliput that's now just kaput: Japanese theme park based on Gulliver's Travels that has been left to rot

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2558813/The-Lilliput-thats-just-kaput-Japanese-theme-park-based-Gullivers-Travels-left-rot.html

Gulliver's Travels is a classic novel which has inspired legions of schoolchildren and adults with its imaginative wit and satirical undertones.

Less inspiring, however, is the abandoned Japanese theme park based on the 18th century book which was left to rot after closing down in 2001.

While driving on a virtually deserted, ice-covered highway last week, I got a call from a U.K. reporter for some deets about my trip to Japan a few years ago. I pulled over and we had a brief chat, and he ended up making me sound a whole lot more thoughtful and eloquent than I really could have been.

"It was such a momentous thing to stand in the presence of. It was the most amazing and surreal object I have ever seen. It felt so weird to lie in the palm of a giant man, while surrounded by the stunning scenery."

So, I'll just assume that I talk like that when part of my brain is frozen.
