INSIDE THE PORN ACTOR'S STUDIO


You've seen me masturbate, now watch me gesticulate!

Last week, frequent BSD commenter, humanities professor, dreamweaver and all around maven Bernard Welt invited me to give a guest lecture at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC.  Believe it or not, my bougie sister Sam looooves art so much she named my niece Corcoran Whitney Keller-Weissbaum.  We call her Corcor for short.  She almost fainted when I told her I would be speaking in Bernard's "Sex in American Cinema" class.

Overcoming my long struggle with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), I braved the daise and the won the day.  What I lacked in apparent nerves, I made up for in frantic hand gestures.  The following slideshow might not be funny to anyone but me, Sam and Corcor, but hey, this is a blog and I can post whatever I want.  Maybe a funny soundtrack would help?  Any thoughts?




A special thanks to Bernard and the patient students of his "Sex in American Cinema" class who endured my gesticulating sermonizing and frequent speech disfluencies (like, um, you know, well. . . ) with pleasant smiles all around.

  1. Dang! I was hoping for video. I'd love to know what all the gesticulatin' was about.

    Funny songs? "My Uncle Used To Love Me But She Died" is silly. My dad used to sing it and I never knew it was a real song until recently.

  2. Hey Colby, nothing wrong with talking with your hands... maybe you're just a little bit Italian!

  3. Colby - I was on a game show once. And my nervous tick was to stick my finger in my ear! You looked great! I hope you had fun!

    Your pal in Chicago,

    JAMES.

  4. I'll try to do an edit of the video soon as I can. It was very, very nice of you to come; the class liked you very, very much; you were very, very interesting; and you certainly boosted my smut cred. Fun fact: Ian Mackaye of Fugazi was guesting in another class at the same time, and you got just as much love as a major indie rock star. (Plus Ian wanted to know if you knew porn director Eon Mckai, which I'm assuming you don't, and was graciously curious about the class and the interview.)

  7. Colby,

    You appeared thoughtful, serious and intelligent with your gestures.
    More so than many I've seen on Inside the Actors Studio with James Lipton.

    If you can post the whole presentation or a link to the university, count me as an audience.

  9. OK two questions:

    Is Welt gay? I know who he is, but no real details as to his person.

    How did he come to find you to ask you to speak? Obviously he knows you suck cock for a living, right? Well, he does now for sure. lol
