Words can't express how proud I am of my bro Samuel Colt, for being UnZipped/Men Magazine's Man of the year. He's honestly a cool dude; beyond being extremely intelligent, honest, funny, and incredibly sweet. I'm not sure if that's the criteria in which UnZipped uses to decide, but if it is, glad that Samuel got recognized for it. You fucking rock dude!

JM: It looks like you have fun on the site and in your movies and other website appearances. Totally uninhibited & sexually joyful. Would you say that's an accurate reflection of you in real life?
RC: Pretty much. I learned a long time ago that life is short. So, I try to enjoy it to the fullest, and when I'm being filmed in the moment... I'm there. I've always been a sexual person, and kinda crazy when it comes to leaping head first into stuff sexually. So, after knocking down the porn door, there's really no stopping me.
JM: There's a definite energy in your work. In Dirty! you & Ty LeBeouf look like you had such a good time. How does a scene that turns out so well work? Was there a script or were you just told to go for it?
RC: Steve and Leif gave us a few guidelines for what they wanted in the scene.... but most of it Ty and ad-libbed. I've had a porn crush on Ty for a long time... so there were a few things I wanted to do with besides just fucking and sucking. I think I mentioned to Steve that we should be drinking beer, and that I should have a 40 ounce. I knew sooner or later we'd have to take a piss... and I really wanted to drink Ty's.

I'm amazed that it's been a full year since my first porn experience. The day was full of historical significance with Obama being sworn in, and the juxtaposition of my swearing in, by taking a mouthful of cock on camera, wasn't lost on me. I've posted before my experience of that day.... the reservations I still had even as I was driving to the shoot. However, looking back at it all.... I wouldn't change a thing.
- “What do you think of me using Coop Anderson?’
- “But that’s already your name.”
- “Yeah, but it’s my nickname… and I kinda like the idea of becoming something that is the opposite of Anderson Cooper.”
- “What do you mean?”, he strained as he lifted his legs for leg lifts on the bench.
- “Well, I think it would be cool to make a website, that was almost like a television station… with viral videos that I produced, blogs that I wrote, documentaries… just in a more entertaining fashion than Anderson provides.”
Let me just stress that I didn’t come up with the name Coop. An ex-boss of mine named me that because of my last name, and the fact that she thought I was the opposite of Anderson Cooper. I didn’t really care one way or the other, and before I knew it, most of the crew was calling me Coop as well. Frankly, I don’t care much for Anderson Cooper as a host of television. I think he’d be more influential if he came out of the closet.
- “I understand, because he is kinda boring… but if you use what is the antithesis of Anderson, you give people the idea that you’re basing your persona off of someone else. Like you don’t really have that many ideas…. And YOU have a lot of ideas.” Steve had a point. I stopped for a moment weighing what other names would make a possible good porn name that could transpire into a stage name for future possibilities…
- “Okay, you’re right…. "
-"What about Race Cooper?”
- “Oh my god! YES!”
- “You think?”
- He nodded emphatically, “Yeah, we’ve tested it with the marketing group and they APPROVE! Where did that come from?”
I smiled and laughed….
- “I met some guy in Sacramento with that name… seems to fit well with Cooper.”, I switched seats with Steve to get ready to do my set.
- “More than that… Race is good because of the edginess of it. You’re not afraid of a challenge…”
It amazes me how Steve can hit it right on the nail like that. To begin this journey with out any masks, is to start to see the challenge in who I can become. I’ve been faced with everything possible that I could’ve already feared. The only challenge now, is to face who I fully am. Race Cooper it is.

Last night I did my first web show for Raging Stallion's MEN Live website. I was a last minute replacement, for my friend Tony Aziz, who was ill. It was only coincidental that it happened to fall on Martin Luther King weekend. One of the people online asked if or how, I celebrated MLK. Which I was pretty much at a loss to express. Although I'm very familiar with Martin Luther King Jr.'s history, and his impact on America..... celebrating his birthday is a whole new thing for me as a Canadian transplant. So, perhaps a blog post about race.... is the best way to honor him.

There's a few things I've become accustomed to in my first year as a porn star. You can't count on a shoot until you have a confirmation email. People will look at you differently when they find out about what you do.... and on the rare occasion, you'll get recognized when you least expect it. Yesterday, was definitely one of the latter revelations. I was meeting friends at the local Recreational Center to brush up on my wrestling moves, and get some practice in. I'm a pretty good wrestler, but as I get older, I think I should probably get some more practice in. Kink.com has been having me back regularly now for Naked Kombat, and with the upcoming Nasty battle... some extra training is becoming essential. My buddy who trains at the rec center brought me in, so we could spar and he could teach me some new moves. He introduced me to the guy who runs the program there, as well as the other wrestlers.... and it caught me off guard when they called me 'Race' without me saying anything. Turns out that the guy who runs the program, and most of his pals are HUGE fans. They actually have 'Race' and 'Brenn' wrestling nights... where they watch us wrestle. Holy shit! Pretty fucking cool.... It was cool getting their take on the whole Naked Kombat, what they liked about it, and what they didn't. And after practice, taking pictures with everyone. It was definitely one of those 'Porn Star' moments to remember.

Had a great shoot for Edger9.com yesterday, with my bud Tony Aziz, and newcomer Christopher Venice. Tony and I take turns roughing the kid up, and fucking him together. Should be pretty fucking awesome! But that's not the best of it..... As we're shooing in the warehouse I have access to, we got locked in the stairwell. With all of our equipment and stuff, still inside.... the only option we had was for me to try to jump up to a fire escape, and run up the 7 flights to an open window. Was fucking glad, that I'm in shape, and could pull myself up with only having two hands on a low hanging bar! Spidey Power! Crisis averted.
