I SAY ZOLUSHKA, YOU SAY CINDERELLA

A few year years ago, I was lucky enough to be part of a fun, funky little project that made the rounds during the 2014 film festival circuit. If you weren't lucky enough to live in one of the cities where Wes Hurley's award-winning short, Zolushka, was screened, you can now watch it online (nope, no credit card or payment required; just sign up for free with your email addy!) at OUTFESTONLINE.
I'm Prince Charming!
Described as "Cinderella meets Tom of Finland" Zoluska (the Russian translation for Cinderella) teaches us that glass slippers aren't the only way to find your true love when you think they've slipped through your fingers.
Hoping to find the Perfect Fit

#COLBYDOESAMERICA AND (TRIES TO DO) CANADA TOO

I say try because I honestly don't think I've ever encountered as many sexually repressed, on the DL, or outright closeted men as I did in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada. A resort town in Alberta called Revelstoke left me neither stoked nor with much to revel in. And the weird married guys on Grindr who won't even send pics because they are married - what kind of impression does that give of the gay men of Canada? Too much British influence maybe? I'm really not sure if this is a Canada thing or a Pacific Northwest, in general, thing.  All I know is that with all the passive aggressive bitchiness and anti-sex attitude I encountered, I'm not sure where the 'Canadians are so polite' thing comes from. Is it just too miserable and rainy all the time that people tend toward the surly and unhappy more often than not? Maybe it just never gets warm and sunny enough for people to get hot and bothered on a regular basis. I actually read a news article where an Angus Reid poll said 27 percent of Vancouver residents described themselves as "uncomfortable" and another 18 percent were "miserable". I believe it.

I did meet a number of lovely women while I was in Canada. Unfortunately, that wasn't going to help me film a #COLBYDOESCANADA video. Thankfully, I did manage to find a lovely and willing lad while in Alberta, so I did manage to film one video while I was there. For the most part, the scenery was the best part of my time in the Great White North. In fact, I'm now beginning to understand why my sexually ambiguous great aunt (who died a virgin) loved Canada so much.
Spotted Lake, Osoyoos, BC. The spots are mineral-rich deposits of calcium, magnesium sulphate, and even bits of silver. During WWI minerals from the lake were used to create ammunition & now it's a medicine lake for the Okanagan First Nation.
To add insult to injury, I wound up popping migraine strength Excedrin and hobbling around with taped toes after a mishap at Radar Beach near Tofino. Jan managed to run up ahead, shuck his clothes and hang gracefully from a big rock by the waters edge while I tripped on my damn flip-flops and broke my toe. :(
Jan and his pretty alabaster bum.
I'm not going to lie, I was one happy camper to cross the border back into the US of A. But it turned out the situation in Seattle wasn't all that much more bright than it'd been north of the border. It's got to be the weather, right? Things could only get better from here.
My grizzly impersonation while camping in a no-tent zone (due to the high number of grizzly bear in the area) 
Let's just say that wasn't entirely true. My Independence Day got off to a truly awful start: I got stood up for a video that morning - by a kid who'd already stood me up once before in Idaho (I won't mention his name, but if he's reading this, he knows who he is!)
Me being pissed off at the Grand Tetons after the dude stood me up a second time!
But then the gods or whatever higher power might exist realized that Colby needed a check mark in the win column. And my 4th of July Gift from God presented itself. I was really cranky and mad, and I decided to go to Yellowstone. I saw a posting for the Lonestar geyser and I thought it had to be a sign. I'm from Texas! I had to go! So I popped 3 Excedrine Migraines (because my broken toe was still killing me) and hiked 5 miles to the geyser. And this happened right after I arrived:
video
I found out later that it only goes off every three hours. I was the only person there to watch it, and it felt very special. Day officially improved! It really was a lovely, peaceful turnaround to an otherwise shit day.

So for everyone who thinks the glamorous life of a porn actor is all ass all the time - there you have it. It's just not the case, my friends.

I'm slowly making my way east and still have close to 20 States to cross of my list, so if you're in one of the locations still not filmed and you'd like to get involved, get in touch! Bigshoediaries @ gmail dot com is the address - send me your ideas and photos!

Big Colby Hugs!

#COLBYDOESAMERICA: THE VIDEO GAME?

Calling all video game programmers!

I recently met a video game designer who has some awesome ideas for collaboration on a piece for #ColbyDoesAmerica. The only problem is that he's a designer, not a programmer, so we're looking for someone who can program and who would like to join our collaboration.

If you’re interested in getting involved in turning the fantasy into reality, get in touch! As always the addy to reach me is bigshoediaries@gmail.com.

Big Colby Hugs!

I SEE PENIS: A TRUE MUSHROOM CAP

Thanks to Friend of Colby (and all around fungi, or is that fun guy?) Andy W, for sharing with us this double whammy #ISEEPENIS and #ISEEASS forest tableau. I need to keep my eyes peeled for more of this while I'm exploring the wilderness!

Is this how mushroom sauce is made?

LOOK, MA! I'M ON THE COVER OF A MAGAZINE! (THANK YOU @titolp!)

Last year I was lucky enough to visit Brasil during Festival Mix Brasil 2014. It was a short trip, but I made the most of it. Between the festival itself and the museums, art galleries and sightseeing (Sao Paulo is beautiful!) I managed to squeeze in, I had an amazing time. While I was there, I also did a few photo shoots and interviews, and now I'm on the cover of Revista Junior Magazine!

Colby Fan Extraordinaire, Tito Luiz Pereira, was kind enough to translate the portion of the article currently posted online. And, Tito, just FYI – your English is MUCH better than my Portuguese! Thanks, handsome!

The #66 JUNIOR edition Especial Parada - Love Is Great with the porn star Colby Keller on the cover photographed by Gabriel C. Lucas it's already on the newsstand. Colby tells everything in an interview with André Fischer and take off everything in photo shoot in our pages, that still have 'Portofólio' sign by AJ Paris and the "Homem de Verdade" Fernando Olivenol by the lens of Gabriel Félix.

Here is a teaser of the chat with Colby Keller and André Fischer:

You came to Brazil during the project "Colby Does America", where you are travelling the United States making sex videos, meeting fans and collaborating with others artists...
Colby: This project is the sequel of my previous project "Everything But Lenin", when I donated absolutely everything I had, all my books, my clothes, furnishings, Twitter account, even my dad's ashes. Everything but my Lenin statue that was my amulet. I say 'was' because I ended up giving to a guy I met in the trip.


And from where this idea came from?
Colby: First came from a love disillusion. After that, the landlady of the apartment where I lived in Baltimore for years asked back the apartment. I decided to prove my detachment and leaving absolutely everything behind. I opened my home to friends and fans who could take everything they wanted. I raised $ 45,000 in donations from fans and bought a camera, a van and hit the road with virtually nothing.

Did you really get rid of absolutely everything?
Colby: Actually I kept some books, I put in a box that is in the house of a friend in New York. These books are part of the immense library that I gathered through other project, "Boners for Books", where I changed pictures of me with my cock hard for books that fans bought from my wish list on Amazon and sent to me.

#COLBYDOESAMERICA & THE GREAT WHITE NORTH


I've officially made my way across the border! I spent some time in Alberta and am now in British Columbia and have been experiencing some serious wildlife. I saw my first Canadian Grizzly and Black bears (and I'm glad my camera has a good zoom because those things are huge!)

Grizzly Bear
Black Bear

I saw my first glacier, too! But, even better than just the glacier itself? See the men in this photo? The one in the orange turban was doing what looked to be some kind of traditional Sikh dance for his friend in front of the glacier... with a selfie stick. It was amazing! Canada is definitely a cultural mosaic.



Seeing the bears was awesome, but now I'm ready to spend some time experiencing the kind of wildlife that walks on two legs and likes to get naked in front of the camera (there was a 'wildlife walking erect' pun in there, but it seemed too easy.) 

I'm headed to Nelson, then Vancouver Island, and I'll be around for a few days looking to shoot, so if you're interested, get in touch! Bigshoediaries @ gmail dot com. I know Canadians can often be polite to a fault, but I'm sure there are a few boys who can help me put the OH in Oh, Canada.

Big Colby Hugs, Eh?

A #COLBYDOESAMERICA THANK YOU & PHISHY PSA

First of all, I want to say thank you again (I don't think I can say it enough) to all of you who have been supportive of #ColbyDoesAmerica. So many of you have donated time, resources, and money to this project and there's no way it would be happening without that support.

Unfortunately, in addition to the criminals out there impersonating me on various social apps (I blogged about them back in January; they're still at it), it seems there are even more devious people out there trying to scam credit card information by posing as yours truly. 

While I do have a few different means for fans to donate to the #ColbyDoesAmerica project (print sales, the WhoreStore, or even PayPal donations), let me make it perfectly clear: 

You do NOT need a credit card to access the videos at www.colbydoesamerica.com. 


There is an optional donation button on each page, that looks like this:

But you don't have to click it. And I promise, I am NOT asking for anybody's credit card information for age verification or any other purpose. So if you are approached online, or via Grindr or any other dating app, and asked for a credit card to access my site – it's a scam. 

This email was forwarded to me by someone who was approached by one of these fake Colbys. I think it's pretty obvious by the wording and bad spelling alone that this email is NOT from me, but criminals can make up all kinds of excuses for those sorts of discrepancies. If you do receive this email, or one like it, don't click any links – just flag it as spam or phishing and delete it. And please don't give your credit card information to this fraud.
If you receive this email, please report it as spam or phishing. It's NOT from me.

I wish there was more I could do about these fake Colbys. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem likely that they're going away any time soon. So, once again, I humbly apologize to any of you who've been approached by any of these scam artists. 

As far as social media goes, this blog & Twitter (@colbykeller) are my main outlets. I don't have a Facebook page or Instagram account (apparently communist artists-cum-porn actors who like to show some skin are frowned upon, so both accounts were unceremoniously deleted without any due process.) I do use Grindr to find models, so if you think it's me messaging you but you're not 100% sure, please check here or my Twitter account first, to see if I really am in or near your city. If I'm going to be at a specific event in your town, I'll try to post that info here as well (just to clear up any confusion, I'm actually in Canada right now and won't be at Pittsburgh Pride as some of the fake Colbys have been telling folks.)

As always, if you are interested in being a part of #ColbyDoesAmerica, you can always email me at bigshoediaries at gmail dot com.

Big Colby (the real one) Hugs!
