"We ate quickly and adjourned to the bedroom to celebrate our upcoming cohabitation. I stretched out on the waterbed and Keith invented nasty new arcade games with my joystick. . . "
"Afterwards, Keith lay in my arms, warm and stickywet and smelling of fuck, his big head on my chest, the weight of him nearly painful. I stroked his big, damp back, stubbing my fingertips now and then on one of the moles that peppered his back and shoulders."
Chapter 42 of Larry Duplechan's Eight Days A Week:
There is something about watercolor that breaks down my chiseled, adamantine porn star exterior-- dripping in hyper-masculine sweat and sex (tee hee)-- and gets to the real me: aquamarine and purple around the edges.

Artist Jesse Kahn diligently scoured the internet for images of yours truly to design a "Colby camo"-- perfect accompaniment to any night on the town, disguised and otherwise. While Jesse didn't quite intend for his idea to surpass the two-dimensional print pictured above, I can't help but dream of an army of loyal "Friends of Colby" swathed in magnificent fatigues.
Laurent Champoussin is back! Monsieur Champoussin makes such a regular appearance on BSD, I hereby appoint him official French Correspondent/Photographer-in-Residence (Paris Office). Laurent generously offered to give me a subscription to his new project "De La Correspondance". I received my first edition this week!
As always. . . beautiful job. In addition to a poster and several small cards, I also received my own original print. A picture-of-a-picture hardly does him justice. To find out more or subscribe yourself, click HERE. Also, check out the fantastic video he made of his 2012 portfolio at the end of this post.
If these pictures don't do enough to excite you, here is a fun video of Laurent's 2012 portfolio, full of hotties in speedos (among other things), plus a fun track by M83 to jam to. There is even an "I SEE PENIS" if you look closely enough:
When I was a pre-college student at the then California College of Arts and Crafts (now California College of Arts) a professor instructed us to replicate Claes Oldenburg's "I Am For An Art". What kind of art could each of us claim? A groundbreaking moment in my understanding of art as an eternal practice of daily living, that single lesson helped shape my devotion to visual art (and a particularistic affection for sculpture) ever since. If I could find what I wrote in response to that lesson that day I'd share it with you, but this video is much better. I may have even cried watching it. "Dear Claes" by Dan Fox.
And the award for Best Fuck of the Year goes to . . . . ME!
While I'm not surprised the generous folks at Naked Sword awarded me and Anthony Romero "Best Duo" for the entirety of 2013 even though the year has just started (it was, after-all, one of the best fucks I've had in years), in truth, all credit belongs to Anthony. Rarely do I get the opportunity to fuck someone I might otherwise watch in porn myself. . . It's even more rare that I might accidentally "O" before I'm supposed to in a scene. I'm pretty professional when it comes to cumming on schedule, and yet, Anthony's beach-ball-booty almost made me shoot twice, well before my cue! Thankfully, I was able to hold back, but Anthony didn't make it easy on me. Grrrrrrrr
The first BigShoe award for best bottom of 2013 goes to Anthony Romero! Come claim your 8 inch trophy whenever you want it.

I was honored, to say the least, when artist Erik Hanson asked me to sit for a portrait. Erik's expansive exhibition history includes such venerable shrines of high art and culture as MoMA's PS1 space in Queens. That Erik would so honor me with such an expansive (and expanding) series of portraits based on that sitting continues to flatter and amaze me, so much so, I've decided to set aside an entire week to honor his artistic output. While it's hard for me to spend too much time critiquing the handsome devil on the canvas (my narcissism does have limits), everyone should appreciate Erik's inspiring process of innovation and improvosation. While you can't watch him live in the studio, the work itself provides the movie script. No two paintings are alike.
If you have an interest in purchasing a piece of Colby (or another painting by Erik) feel free to drop him a message or a friendly compliment at email@example.com.
The long arm of Capitalism wears a gold watch. . .
Artist William E. Jones's video "The Fall of Communism As Seen in Gay Pornography (1998)" functions as a compilation video of sorts, of scenes ripped from gay porn produced in Eastern Europe after the collapse of the Soviet Union. No single piece of art may sum up the hollow victory of Capitalism and its long march toward total global hegemony more than this depressing video. Dare I say it. . . ruins Bel Ami for me.
