BOYS WITH BEARDS: CUPCAKE MEN

Completely lick-able 'staces! Yum!!!


I (DON'T) SEE PENIS: KING TUT

Some alarming research has come to me attention concerning everyone's favorite Egyptian man-child pharaoh. Due to a genetic abnormality, he may have had an underdeveloped penis. Thank God he was pharaoh. Read more here.
"This evidence has lead some, including Marchant to believe that Tut's penis was swapped sometime after his body was embalmed, suggesting a conspiracy existed to save him from embarrassment of the locker room variety, even in the afterlife."


COLBY AS VENUS PARODY BY J. BONE

Inspired by the Colby de Milo pose at Jungle Jim's Water Park last week, Colby's favorite illustration artist, J. Bone has offered his own rendition of a Colby as Venus parody. Gosh, he's talented...I never realized how ripped I was. ;)


I KNEW MY FONDNESS FOR ORANGINA AND THUNDERCATS WOULD INTERSECT SOMEWHERE

GOSPEL GRAFFITI

Check out this article about anti-secular graffiti that popped up in the Bible Belt.

Frankly, they did a terrible job. They should have joined forces with some more established pro-religion graffitti artists, like Gospel Graffitti's Threat.

MY NEW MASCOT

I've decided I need a new mascot. And the winner is.....

BOOB KITTEN (isn't she adorable???)

COLBY DOPPELGANGER STRIKES AGAIN: SAN FRANCISCO

A post from the field where Bryan has a Colby Doppelganger sighting in San Francisco:

"Just like a secret agent man -- traveling from the Fairy Village aat SF Pride's 40th Anniversary to New York City Subways.

I went to SF Pride yesterday. From afar I thought this guy was you, but it wasn't. Over the blaring drag queen music I cupped my hands over this guy's ear and asked, 'Do you know who Colby Keller is?' He didn't, so I explained to him that you were my favorite porn star-cum-artist, and that I would like to take a picture with him. I'm certain he and his boy with beard friend will be looking you up soon....

I've also attached a photo of the Louis Vuitton window display at Bloomingdale's SF, just because it's pretty. Happy Pride Month!"

Thanks, Bryan for your great detective work and the photos!!!

THE MOST SURVEYED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD




With all this buzz about the World Cup and who's "the most" in the world, I thought it would be fitting to post about an exhibition at the Tate Modern in London that I'm not going to be able to see. However, if you are in London this summer, you should definitely go and check out Exposed and send me the exhibition program. :)

"The UK is now the most surveyed country in the world. We have an obsession with voyeurism, privacy laws, freedom of media, and surveillance – images captured and relayed on camera phones, YouTube or reality TV.

Much of Exposed focuses on surveillance, including works by both amateur and press photographers, and images produced using automatic technology such as CCTV. The issues raised are particularly relevant in the current climate, with topical debates raging around the rights and desires of individuals, terrorism and the increasing availability and use of surveillance. Exposed confronts these issues and their implications head-on."

And in honor of the exhibition, here are some "secret agent man" photos of Colby from the New York City Subway. Watch out, he's up to no good!!!

COLBY DE MILO: WATERPARK FUN IN THE SUN!


It's hot up in here on the East Coast! Muggy, steamy, sweaty, humid, sunny...hot! So, I decided to head to a water park with friends to cool down with water slides, wave pools, lazy rivers and some special campy clam slides. Eat your heart out Botticelli!

ANAL PRESENTA: EL MUSEO DEL CHOPO

So I mentioned that my video "16 Missing Bitches" was going to be included in a show in Mexico City at El Museo del Chopo for a video installation put together by Anal Magazine (btw, if you don't speak any Spanish, you might think the name of the magazine is more artful if you pronounce it in your head with some soft "A"s). Here are some photos of the opening.

There's a still which very obviously shows Brian Kenny, whom you all know I have a bit of a artist/sexworker crush on...y El Museo del Chopo es un edificio muy bello!!!

Anal Magazine: El Museo Del Chopo


I had my first international exhibiiton as Colby Keller last night in Mexico City at El Museo del Chopo as part of video/projection show put on by Anal Magazine. It's a pretty cool new art/sex mag that you should definitely check out. Imagine BUTT en espanol! Thanks to the dudes at Anal Mag - I'm super honored to be included with artists like Superm and Guy Maddin in a show. I hardly think "16 Missing Bitches" is worthy of such company, but I'm deeply appreciative!

COLBYMOBILE: COLBY'S RIDE


I don't own a car, but if I did I would want something like this...notice how low to the ground it is. I like the juxtaposition of having to lower down and climb into it.

ARTISTS I LIKE: EXTERFACE


Check out this hot advertising/photography artists group in France called Exterface. They have some very sexy, hilarious, beautiful photo sets to look at...you'll giggle with your hardon, trust me.

OBB - OTHER BLOGGERS' BUSINESS: GEORGE CHAMOUN


After reading a very fair assessment ("That's disgusting!") of the photos I posted of a recent pig roast, I took a quick look into the beauty blog of Mr. George Chamoun. It's a great compilation of inspirational images in which everything is quite beautiful and absolutely nothing curated is "disgusting" nor is anything rudimentary. I definitely recommend a tumble in his tumblr. To boot, he's got a gorgeous beard...

PIG ROAST REDUX (HUSBANDRY FRIENDLY POST)

So, my friends and I roasted another pig from a local farm. This one was really big - 100lbs and it went really well. We built a pit with cinder blocks in our alley, marinated the pig with olive oil and garlic, used our specially-fashioned-by-the-local-bike-shop rebar cage for roasting, and invited WAY TOO MANY people with digital recording devices of some sort. Once it was finished, we paraded the cooked pig around the block once it was finished. I wish 2010 were the year of the PIG 'cause I totally recommend everyone try this by saying "Let's make this the year of the pig" but I think it's the dragon...right? Anyway, it was way more fun than a sex party!

Did anyone else try to watch Bravo's new reality show, Work of Art? I think I watched Amanda get kicked off for her abstract portrait, but all I can remember is Diet Coke.

I mean, c'mon Sarah Jessica Parker...I know that, as Executive Producer you need corporate sponsorship to make a show like this work but the show reminded me more of something Andy Warhol would have done had he made it through the online revolution than an actual show...with Diet Coke commercials stacked together so closely that you can't really see anything else. So what was the art? The portraits or the commercials?

ARTISTS I LIKE: BLAKE FALL-CONROY

I just read about this interesting art piece by Blake Fall-Conroy on ArtsJournal.com yesterday and thought I would post the description and artist statement with it. Pretty cool, huh?

Having worked for minimum wage or less several times throughout my life, it's kind of amazing to think of an art piece that captures the repetitive futility that the experience can somtimes generate.

Blake Fall-Conroy Minimum Wage Machine (Work in Progress) 2008 Custom electronics, change sorter, wood, plexiglas, motor, misc. hardware, pennies (approx. 15 x 19 x 72 inches)

The minimum wage machine allows anybody to work for minimum wage. Turning the crank will yield one penny every 5.04 seconds, for $7.15 an hour (NY state minimum wage). If the participant stops turning the crank, they stop receiving money. The machine's mechanism and electronics are powered by the hand crank, and pennies are stored in a plexiglas box.

BOYS WITH BEARDS: J. BONE

Isn't it fun when talented people are adorable too? That intersection of nerdy and cute just past the avenue of sexy and capable just really turns me on. So, I'm excited to post some great boys with beards photos of the sexy and talented, J. Bone. You know his work from the Art For Porn Contest in which he was named a winner for this blog, as well as some additional outfits he worked up for the Colby Keller Fashion Paper Doll, but you should also know that he is officially ADORKABLE!!! Swoon.

ART BY COLBY: DRAWING OF A MOUND OF DIRT

There's been quite a bit of construction happening along the East Coast Amtrak lines this spring and summer and on a recent train trip, I took a quick photo of a man-sized mound of dirt that looked oddly like an anthill and decided to draw it. I'm still working on my long term 24 hour clock painting project but I just couldn't NOT draw this big pile of dirt!

Her'e a couple of snapshots of my drawing in process:


HOW TO CONTROL PUBLIC SEX ACTS 101

I recently went hiking with some friends at a park near Washington, D.C. called Turkey Run. It's a beautiful site tucked north of the city on the Potomac River (you know, the one George Washington could throw a stone across). I saw some great toads and a black snake and the weather was beautiful. I also saw a hilarious sign.

According to my friends, Turkey Run used to be (and still is to a degree) an active site for men meeting men in the parking lot and running off to have sex in the woods together. We actually did see several men sitting solo in their cars watching us carefully as we headed off for our hike, and they all had one thing in common. They had parked front end only. We spent the first several minutes of our hike thinking about sign as a way of trying to curtail public sex. The idea is of course that you can't watch (as easily) people heading into the park parking lot to check out your next hot trick or maybe that you can't escape as easily in the event of a raid. But, really...does it actually work??? What kind of law enforcement meetings must those be like?
