Are you, or is someone you know, a photographer living in Nashville or Eastern Tennessee who is free this weekend and wants to make a little bit of extra cash?  We're looking for a photographer to capture some surreptitious images, "big foot"-style of the end of the Pieces of Eight project near Liberty, TN (about 45 minutes east of Nashville).  If you are interested, shoot an email to bigshoediaries@gmail.com for details on the project.  Big Foot Diar. . . oops, I mean, Big Shoe Diaries can cover you gas expenses and throw a little cash at you as well.

I SEE PENIS: CARROTTOP

Who does Carrot Top top?  We recently learned his net worth tops $75 million and we saw that his body went crazy, but what we really want to know is what's on bottom.

I SEE PENIS: BONOBOS AT IT AGAIN!!


No, not those bonobos. . . these Bonobos! "Friend of Colby," David Reinhart noticed someething I missed on a pair of Bonobos slacks. . . PENIS!  How could I have missed this beautiful #iseepenis moment?  It's so obvious!  Congrats to David and a call to arms to everyone else! We must not let and #ISEEPENIS moment pass us by without photographing it and sending it to bigshoediaries@gmail.com!

MORE FAN ART FROM JOSPEH MACHI

Who doesn't love a good sketch? Apparently, Joe had a midday margarita and took a nap, but still had trouble sleeping so decided to put together a boozy sketch of me!

POSSESSIONS ON PARADE: COLBY'S SHIT TRAVELS FAR AND WIDE


You've likely seen the film Amelie and enjoyed the subplot of Amelie's father's garden gnome traveling the world and encouraging him to do the same. In similar fashion, my own once-prized possessions are now making their own tours of the world.

Thanks to social media, I've been seeing just exactly what my old stuff is up to.  In the case of some favorite old sunglasses that ended up with fiction foodie writer, Kayti Anne, there have been some exciting adventures including beignet devouring, drinking before noon, film openings, book cover modeling and even a trip to a voodoo shop.

If you ended up with some Colby possessions from the Potlatch or one of the white boxes shipped across the globe and you have some time to share the photos, tweet them at me @colbykeller and I'll post them to the blog.  You can hashtag #potlatchadventures and give a little story so I know exactly what's going on. Safe travels to all my old stuff!!!

Sunglasses eating beignets!

Sunglasses drunk.

Sunglasses as a Book Cover Photoshoot Accessory.

COLBY FAN ART: JOSEPH MACHI'S FANTASEA

This watercolor was whipped up in response to Cameron Stalheim's Colby as Merman sculpture, recently on display at the Maryland Institute College of Art.  Joseph apologizes to the gay fans for posing me with a woman and he says "you're welcome" to the straight fans. Fantastic fantasea, which reminds me of one of my favorite Azalia Banks' songs.

GAYUMBROS INTERVIEW WITH COLBY KELLER

http://gayumbosezine.blogspot.com.es/2014/05/colby-keller-sabe-quien-es-lola-flores.html

Need to bone up?  I meant bone up on your Spanish, you perverts.  Take a look at the most recent interview I had the chance to do with Madrid-based blog, Gayumbros.  Since I'm traveling to Spain next week, it was the perfect chance to sit down and talk porn, art and some famous Spanish lady!

I SEE PENIS: DOPPIO

You know, because sometimes you need a double shot of espresso in the morning. . . (thanks to Jeanf Soyeur for this shot).

I SEE PENIS: VINTAGE (THE SCOTT HEIM COLLECTION)

Like the Criterion Collection in film or the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Scott Heim's I SEE PENIS collection includes some beautiful representations from antiquity including this quaint photo of a penis-shaped stone in . . . (I have no fucking clue where this is!)


FAN ART: JOERG SIMON

In response to yesterday's renewed call for fan art, I received a few more messages in my inbox and thought I would share.  The following is from Joerg Simon and he kindly wrote the words "KELLER" at the bottom just in case you didn't know it was me.

I SEE PENIS: 5 CENTS A LICK (THE SCOTT HEIM COLLECTION)

Many of you are familiar with the writing of Scott Heim, probably best known for his beautiful novel, Mysterious Skin which was adapted into a film starring a young Joseph Gordon Levitt. We are now fortunate to know he also has an amazing collection of I SEE PENIS photos that he has elected to share with us at Big Shoe Diaries.  We'll be posting them over the next few weeks (possibly months because he has tons), but here is one of my favorites from his vintage collection.  5 cents a lick!!!


COLBY DRAWING BY DAVID RIOS

It's been a while since I've received some fan art and I am super excited to share this great drawing by Mister David Rios.  I can't quite figure it out but I really love this rendering.  I'm not sure if it's the eyes or the hair, but I can't stop looking at it. . . (ps. yes, I know this makes me a narcissist.)



Send your fan art to bigshoediaries@gmail.com and I'll try and post it.

WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE

We missed May Day, but had to share some sort of celebratory socialist image to remind us why we all came together in the first place.

I SEE PENIS: AERIAL SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BELGIUM AND LONDON

Big Shoe fan, Tomm shared this gem he claims a friend took from an airplane somewhere between Belgium and London.  At first glance, I assumed it had to be photoshopped, but I started following the lines of traffic and it looks pretty real.  What do you think?


I SEE PENIS: CALIFORNIA CACTUS

Stephanie from California notices this long prickly pear cactus with it's two little base stems and thinks of . . . Colby Keller? Penis? Arid climates?

I SEE PENIS: FACE TATTOO

What I love about this penis tattoo, in addition to the ears serving as the nut sack, is that it's tattooed to look like it was recently shaved.  The devil is in the details!



I SEE PENIS: JAWLINE

I've heard of having a square jaw before, but has anyone ever talked about the benefits of having a penis jaw?  The only problem is the ears look like something you might want to get checked out by your doctor.

I SEE PENIS: T-BONE STEAK

Kai from Copenhagen offered this sizzling simile.  Yes, Kai it looks like a very tasty penis!
