Here are a few reminders of the 2013 Gathering, including close ups of the delightful moment when nipple piercings were ripped out by a WOLFPAC dancer's teeth.
Yeah, that's right. I bought some art for chez Creeper. In case you didn't know, I got class out the ass.
You may have seen it before, here and there on the internet. Two pieces from Lucy Owen's Paper men project which were displayed at her "Where The Juggalo Roam" exhibit at Start Gallery in Detroit in 2014.
The shit that is keeping me too busy to get to Gathering pictures is exhausting, maddening, and soul crushing, so I finally took a little break and went to a happy place for a while, re-visiting the 2014 Gathering of the Juggalos. Just a small update of 65 pictures.
The experience reminds me of how honored I am to get the chance to visit with you, even once a year. I love you muthafackos.
I hope you enjoy this first update of Thursday - Part 1.
One of my photographs was reinterpreted in acrylic on canvas, which is an odd and unexpected honor. It's part of a very cool triptych.
Check out Lucy Owens's Paper Men gallery at her site.
I have had a helluva year at work, especially these last few months, which has kept me from devoting my love and attention to this site, but since I am all about transparency, I am posting my 2014 Year End Self Evaluation rough draft:
- Despite the best efforts of the gods to thwart me, there is still a slight chance that we might complete this project by the end of the year. If I succeed, I may occasionally be teleworking from my new home in Asgard, just down the street from Valhalla.
- My priorities of completing projects and assisting people with technology challenges requires me to spend as little time as possible on my Self Eval, while still including enough text to make it appear as though I have taken it seriously.
- Perspective and Respect - I gots ‘em. I know which idiots need special handling.
- I would have been happy and proud to be done with this project a few weeks ago, but of course the finish line was moved and the race was transformed into a demolition derby, so I am looking forward to being happy and proud once I escape from the burning car and wash off the blood.
- It has been educational to learn how to run in multiple directions at the same time. I have also had the opportunity to contemplate the effects of being on the receiving end of the spirit-crushing hammer, as opposed to my usual role. It’s amazing what you can learn from having your hopes and dreams smashed over and over. It reinforces my commitment to the effective wielding of that tool on others, for their benefit.
- It has also been interesting to watch carefully laid plans disintegrate into nothing. New opportunities at every turn, because the old ones are all in flames.
HERE IN THE RUINS OF ATLANTA, I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON ANYWHERE ELSE SO I DON'T KNOW HOW FAR THIS EPIDEMIC HAS SPREAD, BUT AFTER WEEKS OF WORK IN ISOLATION, I CAN ANNOUNCE THAT I MAY HAVE STOPPED IT FROM SPREADING BY SPLICING MY OWN DNA INTO THE VIRUS!
THAT'S RIGHT WORLD, YOU CAN THANK ME FOR SAVING HUMANITY BY ALTERING THE EBOLA VIRUS TO ALMOST COMPLETELY ELIMINATE ITS CAPABILITY TO INFECT A HUMAN BEING. I WAS ABLE TO DO THIS BY CHANNELING THE INFECTIOUS NATURE INTO A SINGLE VERY SPECIFIC SITUATION WHICH SHOULD POSE NO THREAT, AS LONG AS PEOPLE AVOID GETTING ICE WATER DUMPED ON THEIR HEADS.Read More
I finished up Wednesday night with a little Kaiju Big Battel Wrestling, "Mike E. Clark's Frothy Murder Mix Foam Party" (which I believe may have been a tad lacking in terms of Mike E Clark, Froth, Murder, and Foam), a brief trip through Bizarro World, a few moments with the always lovely TripleSix and friends, and wound up at he Seminar Tent for a bit of Juggalo Night Court justice.
Stay tuned for Thursday....
