youhavechosenfatally from Tumblr posted what I called “DAHBESTGIFEVAH” of a lumberjack bear being energized by a vitamin tablet called “Berocca.” And this is no hyperbole. I can watch this for hours. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Commercials are, more or less, fairly effective. They are visual invasions and auditory assaults to the senses which can do their manipulative job in less than 30 seconds. When I first saw the “Sword” Trident Layers Gum commercial, the ad did its spectacular magic on me as the cute cub in it caught my attention in less than 3 seconds. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
The BearMythology look has been updated again by your finicky and oft-absent blogger. Also, based on numerous suggestions, I will finally get with the 21st Century and start placing “Continue Reading” links on every post for easier reading consumption…
Anyway, my great friend, GE, sent me a link to a video that gave me a heart attack (I wonder how many heart attacks I’ve had during the course of this blog’s lifespan?): it is a video of pro-wrestler, Mark Henry, wearing only skimpy bright red speedos! Seriously, why can’t he wrestle with this type of outfit?! [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Postings have been scarce but I will be rectifying it soon. I’m thinking of bringing aboard some folks so that this blog doesn’t come into an untimely end. So if any of you guys are interested, just let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just want to let you guys know about some exciting new changes to one of the earliest and longest-running bear site out there: Bear-Pics.com. Read all about it below…

Bear-Pics Version 2010:
Bear-Pics Version 2010 is truly a conceptually unique Bear site. Working on a credit system, it’s a site that gives back rather than takes. After you join (it’s free), you get 20 credits which allows you to view 20 photos (1 credit to see 1 pic). Create galleries and then add photos, and every photo our Bear-Pics team approves will give you 10 more credits. On top of that, every time guys click on your photos, you will get an additional credit.
Coming very soon (in a week’s time) Bear-Pics will offer livestreaming, and the fun part about this is – you will also get credit for streaming… the longer you stream, the more credit you get. And once livestreaming is in place, Bear-Pics will be offering instant messages.
Every day more and more cute guys are signing up and adding their photos, so it’s definitely worth it to come and check it out. And while all the other sites ask you to pay in order to keep your profile online with pictures that belong to you (which is ridiculous), at Bears-Pics we credit you, and the more pictures you add, the more you get. Already there are some guys who have 1000s of credit racked up, simply by sharing their photos.
We have apecial offer which will last until January 1st: sign up and use the code ‘BearMyth’ and instead of starting off with 20 credits, you will start with 100.
Some of you might remember Bear-Pics from 1999 to 2006. It was one of the very first Bear news sites which wrote about anything and everything Bear related. As well, there was a Gallery section in which webmaster Bob Forrest showcased his photography of really cute Bearish men. The site was all HTML, and for its time, it was quite popular.
In 2006, Bob met up with Nikola, a coder who offered his services with the goal to make Bear-Pics more dynamic. However, rather than work on Bear-Pics, they decided to open up a new site, and PlanetBears (http://planetbears.com) was created, while Bear-Pics, the HTML version, closed its digital doors. In late 2009, Bob and Niko decided they wanted to try something different, and after 6 months of coding, they opened up Bear-Pics Version 2010 on March 31st. Since then, there are already 5300+ guys who have created a profile, and they are beginning to realize the unique power and energy that Bear-Pics emits.
Go Fujimoto Calendar Contest
Bear-Pics is running a contest and the prize is a great calendar by the reknown Bear artist Go Fujimoto of JapanimationBears (http://www.japanimationbears.com). All you have to do is create a gallery on Bear-Pics, call it ‘CALENDAR’, add up to 20 photos, and the more pics you add, the better your chances are at winning since winners are chosen randomly (meaning, every photo is put into the pool, so the more photos you have the pool, the better your odds). This contest is not about who is the best looking nor who has the most votes – it’s about simply participating and having fun and hoping you’re lucky enough to win one of these great calendars.
Bear-Pics is giving away 5 calendars, and instead of giving them away all at once, we’re giving one away every few days up until January 1st 2011, so the sooner you add your photos, the more chances again you will have at winning, however you can join in up until the very last day (New Year’s day).
Now a little about Go Fujimoto: he’s a Japanese artist who is reknown around the world for his excellent Bearish drawings. In fact, Go is one of the very first guys who did Bear drawings with his JapanimationBears, and his artwork has definitely shaped and influenced many artists today who draw Bears as well.
Go Fujimoto has been making calendars for quite some time now and they are even considered collector’s items. He took a 3 year hiatus from making them however he is now back and in full form, and this year’s calendar – his 2011 – is equally impressive and will surely be highly sought out. The theme is about Bears connecting with Bears using the latest technology that’s out there right now, and that’s our SmartPhones.
The calendar is desk size (148×100 mm), a total of 14 pages with the prints being in both colour and monochrome.

Sorry about being late with the contest. However, we all win with Bear-Pics and their new and spiffy cool system. And using the code BearMyth, you start out with 100 credits instead of 20!
I was sorting through my emails when I noticed an email from Billy Villegas and I literally fainted. After recuperating, I read through the email and I was glad to hear that he and his wife enjoyed my post about him. Not only do I already think that Billy is way cool for all the right reasons, he then tells me that he’s involved with this PSA video about the 2010 California Marriage Protection Act:
Thank you, Mr. Villegas. I am grateful to always find heterosexual folks taking the time to support equal rights for the LGBT community. Thank you very much…
Here’s a vintage image of Larry Csonka (official site) from the July 22, 1974 edition of People Magazine when he played as a fullback with the Miami Dolphins. Make sure to download the whole magazine issue in PDF format (here’s the direct link)! It’s pretty nice of People for allowing us to download all of their archived issues. (And if anybody knows of any cool archived issues of People Magazine where we could find such beautiful bears, please let us know!) I have yet to go through them as I’m sure there are awesome articles and ads of our brawny and large brethren…
Finally, let’s check out Mr. Csonka adorably speak butchered Spanish as he promotes Miller Lite Bear…
Zach Galifianakis and Jack Black are just two of the bearish celebrities who are speaking on behalf of the Noreen Fraser Foundation. NFF is a charitable organization which raises awareness and funds for women’s cancer research. In the following two videos, we have those two specializing in their own brand of humor as they urge our female brethren to save their boobies…

I love advertising, especially advertising that includes large and husky men. Well, I tend to hang around at AdsOfTheWorld to catch on such ads of studly pork & beefmuffins. To my pleasant surprise, I stumbled unto this Flickr Photostream called this is a BIG ad!. It is THE best place to see global advertising utilizing our beautiful hefty brethren. Sure some of the commercials are aimed to convince our big lugs to lose weight, but hey, we get what we can get, correct?
The following are just a delicious sampling of the ads he has collected in his Flickr Photostream… Big thanks to WOOF! Bear Blog for giving us the 411 on this awesome photostream.
Oi! Click on the bloody photo below to check out my bloomin’ message for you blokes on Shirtless Saturday!
This is from an old Discovery Channel UK ad for the TV series, Football Hooligans International. Looks like it only lasted for one season, but I’m glad they have left that Hooligan-A-Gram for us to enjoy. Make sure to share your own work of art in the comments section.
