Contract for World’s Biggest Gangbang by Amelia G on Blue Blood

Contract for World's Biggest Gangbang

Since Forrest Black’s and my California Deathrock book came out, we’ve been talking about print projects a lot. Print is my first love.
One of the projects suggested by some of my unsavory pals would be an omnibus retrospective of BLT. BLT was a little half-sized punk rock humor...( Read more )

Blue Blood is 20 Years Old, Thank You

Here is a note I am in the process of (I think) emailing to current and former members of various Blue Blood membership sites. I've been struggling with some Murphy's Law technology today, so I thought I would share this blogtastically as well. I'm sure I will be riffing on some of these themes a lot this year. Stuff that makes me think. Blue Blood is in its 20th year now. Back in 1992, when I started publishing the Blue Blood print magazine from the basement of a punk rock group house in Rockville, Maryland, I intended to create something activist, something which would create subculture cross-pollination and forever alter the beauty standards. I recently got a note for a school reunion, requesting that I supply what I’ve been up to, and my first thought was that I wanted to share that with people who get it. Thank you for your patronage of Blue Blood sites. I’m going to try to think of some amazing celebrations for this and I’ll definitely try to keep y’all updated on  parties, event appearances, and gallery shows and whatever else we have the resources to put together. You are welcome to follow Blue Blood on Twitter at http://twitter.com/BlueBlood or me at http://twitter.com/AmeliaG for the up-to-the-minute stuff. Now that you’ve treated everyone else this season, I’d love it if you would treat yourself to some Blue Blood VIP: http://www.blueblood.com/ You can see sample images of some of our recent updates at http://www.blueblood.com/news/tags/blue-blood-vip/ featuring new additions like cosplayer Scarlet Starr, leggy art schooler Annika Amour, literal firebreather Franccesca de Struct, and mohawed tattoo collector Tara Toxic. Since my last note to you all, we have also featured shoots of many long-time favorites, including Nixon Sixx, Razor Candi, Scar 13, Voltaire, Nina Sin, Zoe Matthews, and more more more. Also, if you are interested in the California Deathrock book and/or T-shirt Forrest Black and I created, there is ordering info on the bottom of the page with this exclusive interview with Dinah Cancer of 45 Grave: http://www.blueblood.net/2012/12/dinah-cancer-interview-45-grave/ BlueBlood.net and the forums are still open to all and update every day with news ranging from the newest controversial goth-industrial music video to deliciously excessively intellectual pop culture deconstructions of recent television shows to where to buy zombie apocalypse to shotgun rounds and everything else you crave at http://www.blueblood.net/ Love, Amelia G -- Blue Blood 8033 Sunset Blvd #4500 West Hollywood, CA 90046 USA

AmeliaG.com Launches

AmeliaG.com Launches



by Amelia G : July 28th, 2009

amelia g ameliagSo I registered the domain for my name a while back, when the internet still had a bit of that new web smell. I’d been doing work more and more in the digital space for a few years then and I would end up having to pay off a cybersquatter for the BlueBlood.com domain, so it seemed sensible to register everything near and dear to me. Then nine more years went by. Some of my favorite sites have grown out of Forrest Black registering domains while drinking beer and then me feeling that, once it was registered, the domain had to have a site on it. For a long time, I just had a link to a hosted journal on AmeliaG.com, but now seemed like the time to actually put a proper site on there. Today it officially goes live.

The site has the Amelia G bio with just the broad strokes. There is a more detailed sidebar with just 2009 news about press appearances and where my writing and photography has appeared this year. I considered including a page with a gigantic lists of places I’ve been published, but, after doing thousands of pages of editorial, not to mention radio and television stuff, it just seemed like it would be a bit of a laundry list. Plus, oddly enough, when I was doing research for the site, I discovered that some of my work had been reprinted without me even knowing it. I’ve moved less as an adult than I did as a kid, but sometimes it is still possible to lose track of compatriots with moves and all on everyone’s part.

I hope people enjoy the Photography Portfolio section of Forrest Black’s and my work. People always ask to see my online portfolio and I always was reluctant to put one together before. When I say “reluctant”, I mean that the notion of editing together only forty of my favorite images, out of everything we’ve ever shot, made me effing hyperventilate. I forced my brain through its discomfort and editing a selection of images from over such a long time period turned out to be really . . .

RIP Vibe Magazine

RIP Vibe Magazine


by Amelia G : June 30th, 2009

eminem vibe magazine coverYears ago, a photo Forrest Black and I shot of Malcolm Jamal-Warner was almost published by Vibe. At the time, Malcolm Jamal-Warner was starring on Malcolm & Eddie with Eddie Griffin, but still best known for whatever it was he did on The Cosby Show. (I can’t speculate because I’ve never seen The Cosby Show, although I have seen a Chris Rock spoof of it.) I admit that I was interested in shooting him mostly because he was a charismatic guy with the world’s largest diamond tongue ring, at a time when tongue rings were still, ya know, radical. Vibe expressed interest and held onto the print for months. I was really excited to appear in such a large circulation music and lifestyle magazine then, but, alas, they eventually passed and sent my stuff back. No idea why to this day.

But now I know Vibe will never be on my list of credits because effective today, the magazine has ceased to exist. Staffers were in the middle of work on a Michael Jackson tribute issue when they received a memo, from CEO Steve Aaron, telling them they could basically go home. Vibe was hit hard by a combination of lack of access to venture capital and the huge decline in advertising, especially in Vibe’s bread and butter automotive and fashion categories, due to either recession belt-tightening or companies plain going out of business. I’m not a . . .

April Flores Bizarre Magazine Cover

April Flores Bizarre Magazine Cover



by Amelia G : July 1st, 2009

April Flores BizarreBlue Blood hottie April Flores is on the cover of the new issue of Bizarre. This is her second time gracing the cover of Bizarre. Only a few women, such as Masuimi Max, Bianca Beauchamp, and Aria Giovanni have been on the cover of Bizarre more than once, so April Flores is in a pretty exclusive club there.

Last month, you saw the video of the Topco April Flores Toy art show curated by Carlos Batts.

Photographer Martin Perreault shot this April Flores Bizarre cover as well.

April Flores is also starting work on designing a plus size sexy clothing line. She always has something going on.

Congrats to April Flores for making the cover of Bizarre yet again. Blue Blood girls are . . .

Want to be in glossy full color fetish magazine? Tears, content, $.

I'm looking to shoot this week for European fetish magazine placement. As usual, I could finish the job with work I have on hand, but I'd kind of like to shoot some folks I have not shot for fetish magazines before or folks I have not shot in a while. I would ideally like to shoot in Los Angeles, but San Francisco would be possible with enough good models and locations. The magazine generally gets the images first, but you should expect to ultimately most likely get tears and promo for your personal projects and web-ready content. You will receive a copy of the magazine when Forrest Black and I get copies in and you will receive content for download within two weeks of each set being published on BlueBlood.com/RubberDollies.com/etc. Cash money is possible if you are bringing something deeply exceptional to the table, are extremely fit and/or busty, really know how to wear fetish clothes, are very comfortable nude, and you are 100% headache-free. Requirements: You must be able to do an extravagant and impressive look. You must have access to high end and unique rubber or leather clothing or armor. Corsets and big boots are also a plus. A minimum of topless nudity is required. Comfort with full nudity is preferred. You must be in Los Angeles or Orange County this coming week. (Maybe San Francisco, but probably not.) We are looking to create the most artistic and striking images possible, so we are looking for a select few models who can really bring something extraordinary to the table. Refer to Forrest Black's and my work for an idea of what sorts of people we prefer to shoot in general. We have shot for all the important European fetish magazines, including Marquis, Skin Two, and Secret. Although Forrest Black and I have shot dozens of magazine covers, these specific tears are intended for inside pages, although the future can always bring more good things. A few things to keep in mind: It is highly likely that you and/or the clothing designer will get significant press coverage from this. I don't really need to do this with any specific person. I can only use local models for this specific gig and that means Los Angeles or an easy drive from Los Angeles. If you are not sure what high end fetish fashion or rubber clothing is all about or if you are unsure of your nudity comfort levels, I'm really only looking for glamourous enthusiasts on this one. To submit, please message me here or email submit@blueblood.net with the title FETISH FASHION MAGAZINE MODEL. Please indicate where pictures of you can be viewed, what city you are near, what your nudity comfort zone and interests are, what type of fetish fashion you have available, any location suggestions you may have, and whether the designer would like some press coverage as well if possible. If you have any special reasons for wanting to shoot or other information you feel is relevant, please feel free to include it. Please mention if you have already filled out a model app at http://www.bluebloodphoto.com/model.html HIGH END FETISH CLOTHING DESIGNERS, PLEASE ALSO FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH. EVERYONE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REPOST THIS MODEL CALL TO APPROPRIATE PLACES.
