COLBY DOPPELGANGER: MANET'S DEAD CHRIST


Edouard Manet's Le Christ mort et les anges

I've cum to redeem you for your sins. . . but let's sin a little more before we get the whole redemption thing started. . .

  1. Wrote a college paper on this painting. Something about Manet fucking with us because the painting refuses to locate Christ as dead, alive, or even risen. Look at the foot on the viewer's left. Is it resting on the ground? Is it rising?
    Of course what drew me to the work as a closeted freshman was that J.C. Is so hunky and corporeal. Perhaps this pre-gay fascination is what led me, somehow instinctively, to Colby Keller. If this isn't proof of divinity, I don't know what is.

  2. Jesus had some bangin' pins! No cankles on my Lord & Savior... I guess thanks to being a carpenter and all.

  3. Mayonaise Le Christ would be an awesome drag name.
