MY PORN NAMESAKE'S DEATH DAY: RIP HELEN KELLER

 "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller


One of the greatest opportunities of every porn star's life is the opportunity to create a new identity that includes both a new name and new persona.  In my case, both my porn first name and porn surname were given to me by other people.  Colby, coming from Mr. Sean Cody himself 'cause I guess I looked like a slice of cheesy goodness and later, Keller from the folks at Titan 'cause I was (and still am) shy and I guess being shy in the porn world is kind of like being blind and deaf in the real world.  You have to figure out a different way of operating.  And so this post is dedicated to my porn surname namesake, blind and deaf advocate and activist, Helen Keller.  Thank you for inspiring us all to be more than what the world says we could be.    And thanks to Victor J. for reminding me of Keller's special day.

  3. I always wondered about the origin of your stage name. Thanks for the retrospective. I've seen you about in town a few times but thought it might seem awkward to shout out "hey Colby" knowing it's just your stage name. Have fun in Germany. Bawlmer just won't be the same while you're away...
