Here I go again.
Last time I posted was on April of 2018. It’s getting close to April 2021, so it’s been three years since I was here. During that time, I would randomly post on tumblr. Continue reading BearMythology Version 5.0
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 try not to be a movie snob, but I can’t help it when movies like “Vampires Suck” do well financially while films such as “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “Kick-Ass,” and “Let Me In” do horrible business (just goes to prove that the popularity level of such geek-centric flicks are somewhat akin to gay-centric films).
Anyway, more often than not, these parody films will always include a jab or two at our larger and husky brethren. Jareb Dauplaise, for example, was unfortunately poked fun of in both “Meet The Spartans” and “Epic Movie.” But, hey, we got to see skin and no one is really twisting my arms to watch these abominations. So just go ahead and continue to give us our bears and chubs in all of their natural glory.
With that superficial rant out of my system, here’s David DeLuise getting all shirtless in “Vampires Suck.” In these screenshots, he revealed a physique molded by his dedication to “Mixed Martial Arts, Tae Bo, and Yogalates.” Okay, so, um, maybe I kinda lol’ed at that.
And you know what? I am definitely itching to watch just his scene on Blu-Ray…
As I’ve been browsing through the ever-growing online community of bear & bear aficionados in Tumblr, I just realized just how, in such a short time, our group has grown to astounding proportions. Just to think, about a decade ago like-minded individuals got to know each other through email lists and chat rooms. They were smaller and private niche communities that only the persistent and dedicated would find. With the advent of social networking and instant access to media, our loves, lusts, and fetishes are displayed out in the forefront not just for us but for the rest of the world.
Never had I thought that I’d be living in a time where I’d be inundated by images of bearish and chubby men. But that is how it is today. The sharing and delivery of such images and videos come in such a rapid pace that if you blink for a second, you’d miss almost a year’s worth of masculine media (in comparison to a decade ago, for instance). I feel like an old wheel trying to keep up with the young and tech-savvy kids who are proficient with the language of Facebooks, Twitters, and the like.
The thing is, I have noticed a sort of evolution. Those of us who were in need of a connection with others who shared our passion found it in the world of the “bear subculture.” However, diverse groups have come out of that culture. From the chubs to the brutes, the daddies to the cubs, the furry and the smooth, new groups and types have quickly grown to develop their unique identities. In short, we share a common trait with them: we love men of larger-than-typical sizes. However, just because they share such a trait does not necessarily make them a part of the “bear subculture.”
Recently I just involved myself in commenting about the “What is a bear?” debate. Without even mentioning my stance on this here, let’s just say that no one truly owns the term. In fact, when I started the idea of “bearmythology,” I created it for people who had an affinity towards bearish-looking men. So it is in my heart’s content to see other folks like me who discuss about such men without associating it with any particular culture.
They know that they like big guys and that’s just how the way it is.
And as I’m about to leave the online world in a few minutes, I’d like end with these images from a wonderful (and NSFW) blog called The BeefMonger’s Blog…
A good friend of mine emailed me this photo and it’s quite possibly one of the most amazing things I’ve seen all year. It’s a semi-nude photo of the Captain of the United States’ bobsledding team, Steven Holcomb. I am not quite sure where this photo was originally taken from, but when I checked out my ESPN Magazine’s digital edition, I noticed a big “change” that did not sit too well for me…
I am just glad that someone released that original breathtaking photo. Anyway, I just want to send a short email to ESPN Magazine right here…
Dear ESPN Magazine,
Why would you digitally manipulate someone’s physique in your yearly edition of “The Body Issue”? Does not that defeat the very purpose of you displaying the naturalness of your athletes’ bodies?
Please do not do this again. Thank you.
Secretary Of The League Of The Natural State Of Human Bodies Preservation
Okay, seriously, I’m not going to send that. There are more pressing issues in the world than getting all riled up about someone’s beautiful belly getting brutally and ruthlessly butchered by way of photoshopping… Okay, perhaps this is important to me. 😛
Anyway, here were some of my Tumblr contributions in the past about the handsome Steven Holcomb… (And, no, I have not given up on on this blog. Just please be patient with me.)
Hey there! Long time, no post. But it’s time to rectify that. Life and other things took over which was why I was absent for quite a long time. Life is still pretty hectic, but I will do my best to post as much as I can.
Sedrick Ellis, Defensive Tackle for New Orleans Saints
I’ve also changed the layout of this blog and hopefully you folks would like it…
I’m gonna keep this short. I’m back! ^_^ (I needed that 2 month sabbatical and I believe that I’m ready to get back into this blogging thing with WordPress…)
Tumblr was the main reason I stopped this blog for a bit. It was a bit more personal/intimate and I was able to talk about other things besides bears. It also gave me a break from the drama and headache I tend to get because of the very nature of this blog. But I think I’m ready again for such — ahem — crap, so let me have ’em.
Anyway, to start this off, let me just give you guys and gals a sampling of why I focused more on Tumblr the past few days: here are the creme de la creme of the smoking hot bears of Tumblr. As it’s “Shirtless Saturday,” then that’s the type of photos you’ll find here. 😛
If there’s anybody I’m thoroughly obsessed with on Tumblr, then it is the ever-woofy and ever-adorable jambos. It’s basically criminal to be this unbelievably hot and be just 23 years old! I started BearMythology on 2000 and jambos was just 13 at the time! It just boggles my mind thinking about that. Other than that, he has a great sense of humor and he puts up with my lame attempts at online flirting. He has a wonderful heart and his eyes will truly mesmerize you. I seriously challenge you to not get instantly smitten at the sight of this handsome bear…
Christmasonthemoon (Moony, for short) is someone I haven’t really met offline or on. He’s this young kid who has completely accepted his sexuality and does not dwell on it at all. I have a lot to learn from this young lad, and he’s not aware of how I really see him as my hero. He also wants to pursue writing which made me “love” him further. Thanks to him, I’m about to start on another venture which involves writing fiction (so that should be fun). As much as I think that he’s a hot young bear, I’m putting him here as an inspiration to the other young readers out there. I consider myself a good mentor when it comes to academia, but in regards to coming out to your family and peers, I’m not the right person to talk to about it (as I’m still pretty much in the closet). Consider Moony as a person who truly understands who he is and he simply doesn’t care about what others think of him. I think that’s the best advice anybody can ever give anybody — gay or straight.
Queervoice, or Zach, is also the founder and owner of one of the coolest site for us LGBTQ folk: QueerVoice.net. He is very opinionated and I love him for it. There were maybe 2 or 3 occasions where I really wanted to give him a good rimming (heh) and then I wonder “why only 2 or 3?” He is also drop dead sexy with his milky smooth skin and a handsome face that can convince me to do very bad things.
Sofakingbear has got to be the hottest bear on the planet. His eyebrows truly stand out and I haven’t seen any bearish fella that would even resemble his facial features. He has this very “unique” look and I simply adore it. Remember now, I’m just talking about his face. Speaking of his body, I will actually blurt out, “DAAAAYUUM!” Because, honestly, take a look at these photos and tell me if I’m wrong. I triple challenge dare you.
MrBenzadrine, or Benzy, is an enigma as he’s possibly shy in real life but a freaky exhibitionist on Tumblr. I guess if I wasn’t such your typical self-loathing queer then I’d probably be as courageous as Benzy. However, if I was as remotely hot as Benzy, then I’d probably have no issue getting stripped down to my birthday suit and even finding the time to teach others to properly wear a cock ring (is it shameful to admit that I don’t have one?)… KGHBear is his partner and they will get married this year and I am personally elated at such news. Oh and did I forget to mention that kghbear is another fine slab of sexy bear? Believe me, I won’t forget. And here are both the sexy Benzy and KGHBear…
This hot bear with the cross-eye-inducing nickname is James William Hindle. Before I talk about him, check out this music video of his:
I’m always starry-eyed every time I see him post. Chubarama was the one who introduced me to him many moons ago (in internet time) from his blog. And when I asked him to take a photo of himself with his Gizmo doll and actually did it, well, it was like “heavenly” — for truly a lack of a better description. He’s a talented musician and producer and I wish him the best. He also likes to take photos when he’s in the bath and that is always a great thing. Last but not least, he is one gorgeous woofy bear…
ABearJunkie, aka Will, is pretty much my identical brother. Except I’m Asian, so I refer to him as my Seoul Brother. His tastes in bears and entertainment are eerily similar to mines. Unfortunately, unlike me, he can grow a wicked beard and has a fantastically sexy body. (This is brand new news to me, Will!) He is also packing some serious heat, if you know what I mean. Let’s just say that it’s longer than the Wii controller.
Finally, but not least, we have Husbears. I don’t think I have seen anyone who was literally borne to have such a sexy moustache. He also loves to make goofy faces and he’s even more adorable because of it. He is sexy and cute and utterly huggable.
This is just a sampling of the bears I have had the pleasure of hanging around with on Tumblr. There is a heck of a lot more, but these are the ones I have been comfortable talking and flirting with on the Tumblr Dashboard. “Being hot” is definitely just an additional bonus because they’re all just really cool folks to talk to. Even with our common interest with bearish men, each and every one of them are so undeniably unique. And I just want to take this time to thank them for being so.
I first noticed Pruitt Taylor Vince when I rented Heavy back in the mid-’90s. I remember having an AOL account and I created a whole webpage dedicated to my analysis of that film. I also remember constantly refreshing my page hoping to see my stat counter explode with visitors, but, alas, I made 327 visits to it (out of 330 total). I wanted the world to know just how awesome the movie was.
I remember linking it to the Bears Mailing List and I ended up forcing my film analysis on to an unsuspecting Mr. Les K. Wright (editor of The Bear Book 1 & 2 and founder of The Bear History Project). I was still new to the world of “bears” and Mr. Wright was very patient with my billions of questions and overeagerness. He was very kind to my pompous film analysis of Heavy. (If I could find it, I’d repost it here.) But my love for that film pretty much equaled my intense attraction toward its chubby lead actor.
Anyway, all that rambling just so we could segue into today’s Shirtless Saturday model: Pruitt Taylor Vince. I remember giggling like a giddy little girl when I finally saw him shirtless in Captivity. Thanks to Tumblr’s moviechubs, he made me aware that just a decade and four years ago, PTV already got shirtless. I still couldn’t believe that I missed it.
And here are also some screenshots from Captivity.
It’s official, I’m addicted to Tumblr. I now understand why people love Twitter. For me, though, I need to see images, and specifically, I need to see bearish images.
I’ve also noticed that because of Tumblr, it helps me blog here. So I’m urging you guys to sign up for Tumblr and let’s share bear stuff (heck, if they’re not bear-related, that’s cool too). Feed my addiction and I’ll keep posting on the blogs.
I actually have two Tumblr blogs now:
BearMythology Fetishes @ Tumblr (LIKE, TOTALLY NSFW)
Most of you guys probably think that I’m a prude and I don’t want to see male genitalia. Well, I’m here to dispel that myth right now. Venture on bravely to that BearMythology Fetishes blog 🙂
And, for goodness sakes, please join up the BearMythology Message Board. It’s so lonely in there. 🙁
I love WordPress and I truly enjoy blogging with their software. But, sometimes, you just want to microblog and Twitter is too restricting. Lo and behold, I’ve stumbled upon Tumblr and it’s definitely fulfilling an appetite of mine. Anyway, I just started it and please check it out.
Gay Bear Fighter
Hello, Mr. Korean Time-Traveling Warrior. I’m a gay bear and I–
Korean Time-Traveling Warrior
당신이 떠나 곰이 동성애!
(Translation: You leave gay bear!)
* * * * *
It’s been a scorching summer so far and I’ve had my share of heated debates with the same arguments I’ve been repeating ever since I started this blog. I’ve decided to put my rant on such matters on today’s Thank Grizzly It’s Friday.
How many websites are out there where straight girls/women and boys/men who would have a similar type of a disclaimer for their blog/site?
I’d wager zero to completely none.
Queers can be attracted to the same sex; however, they shouldn’t let their attractions be known.
It’s gross. It’s hilarious. It’s wrong. It’s pathetic. It’s disturbing. It’s funny.
To your right is Scouserugger with his own disclaimer:
You have two bloggers who are basically apologizing for finding such men attractive.
I can’t help but feel like a criminal and Scouserugger and I shouldn’t be treated as one. Yet we receive angry complaints about doing what we’re doing.
I still cannot comprehend where the animosity and disgust is coming from. Maybe if I pretended I was a female in the first place, then maybe no one would be complaining. Because, honestly, the men would then be flattered. But I have to be a hot female first though, because if I posted a fake photo of a mediocre-to-ugly looking gal, then they wouldn’t be flattered. But since they are still females, they wouldn’t be creeped out by such public showing of attraction.
Anyway, perennial favorite strongman, Terry Hollands actually shared his thoughts on a forum where I had a brief discussion with about gay men being sexually-explicit with strongmen (online and off).
I quite regularly get messages from them and as a whole most are very decent. You do get the odd one or two that push the limit a little by being a bit crude but that’s the same in all people not just gay guys!
I think people are way too sensitive to this sort of stuff, just take it as a compliment! They understand you aren’t gay. The way I look at it if a very unattractive woman thought you was nice looking would it bother you? if not then don’t worry about this! Just cause they think you’re attractive doesn’t mean you have to do anything about it!!
I have blocked a couple on Facebook due to VERY inappropriate messages but like I said as a whole they are decent guys.
I am really happy to hear this from a strongman whom I have posted quite a number of times on the blog. (I’ll just pretend I didn’t talk about the “underwear model” comment for Big Tall Order. That was purely from a consumer’s viewpoint. *winks*) Sometimes, the hateful and insulting comments are overshadowed by something simple. And in this case, Mr. Hollands’ understanding viewpoint on gay men.
Yes, we are just like any kind of people. We can be nice, obnoxious, generous, selfish, loving, and hateful. We’re not aliens, for crying out loud. And, please, don’t make grandiose statements that “gay bears are the worse” in comparison to something a straight woman, bisexual chick, or female dog would do. It’s like saying that all black people like chicken. Well then, also call me black.
Enough of today’s rant. It’s another scorching Friday afternoon and I’d rather look at hot men. 😛
So, my dearest gentlemen of the big and burly variety… May we have your permission to find you attractive?
Well, I guess that’s pretty good enough. -_^
I have reminisced a couple of times about a childhood crush of mine, Bud Spencer, in this blog. Today, I will be talking about another big crush; he is a Filipino actor who typically played the role of a bad guy or — to keep up with the theme of Goonday Moonday — a goon. His name is Bomber Moran and he made me realize just how wonderful the “chubby” physique was, how erotic it was when the chubby man role-played a villainous goon, and how even sexier if his big belly got punched (gut punch, specifically, and all in the name of role-playing, that is).
As a child in the Philippines, I would eagerly watch Bomber Moran in the theaters or rent his movies in Betamax. And when Betamax was replaced by VHS, I continued to rent his movies as well in the ’90s. But it was his ’80s and early ’90s films that made a tremendous impact on me. He was oftentimes this huggable lug of a bad guy that you just can’t help but root for him. But, then again, that was probably just me. I remember my confusion for wanting to hug the big chubby Bomber while at the same time, I ached to see his beautiful belly (I guess you can call it my “shirtless” fetish) as well as hoping to see it get punched. And not just once, but repeatedly.
Bad enough that I was ashamed about my gay feelings, but I was confused and also ashamed for wanting to see such a handsome man get beat up (you guys can read up on my BearBeat fetish as well). But even as a child, I knew that I did not get “excited” when the beatdown was real. It had to be role-played, such as on film/television or on the pro-wrestling ring. Still, to this day, I am very much confused as to why I get aroused by it. I would still search online for “gut punching” (as well as “ball busting”) and would get turned off by big guys really getting their bellies punched for real, to the point that their stunning body temples turned black and red and bruised. Just not erotic at all, in my personal opinion.
Bomber Moran was not a typical Filipino. Most Filipinos are fairly slim and men like Mr. Moran would definitely just stand out for me. As a child, most big men were foreigners, so whenever I would see someone that looked like Bomber in the Philippines, it would be both Christmas and Lent: I would get an awesome Christmas present but I could never open it. I still remember wishing that I had a hidden camera so that I could take a photo of him then store the photos in my scrapbook. Lol. Years later, here I am, blogging about it. It’s really pretty rad when I think about it. Yes. I said “rad.”
Check out the above blurry screenshot. I mean, just look at it. Since I’m assuming that you’re reading this and made it this far, then you know just how marvelous that image is. We all communicate on the same level where we are just completely mesmerized and wowed by such a shot. All of our senses are in complete harmony and disarray while our pupils dilate at something we wish could touch, smell, and even taste.
So, to me, that’s who Bomber Moran was. He passed away in 2004 which makes me reflect on how human life is just a series of repetition which would then recycle again but in various forms via differing generations and idealogies. That image of a Bomber Moran will reappear again somewhere. And the very concept of someone admiring that Bomber Moran will also co-exist somewhere at another time. And, of course, the simple-minded, hating bigots will also be there as well — always ready to criticize our immorality and downright “wrongness.”
How’s that for a sudden change in discussion? Yeah, I’ve been reflecting a lot about my life lately and I really wish that I could just stop with that and just enjoy life for what it is. Unfortunately, I’m just an inactive philosopher… 🙂
Anyway, now on to the great stuff. Here are three Bomber Moran video clips I have uploaded in YouTube:
In this video, Bomber is shirtless as he just got out of the shower. He asks his help (Vic Sotto) to make him some milk. As this was a slapstick comedy, Vic mixes up the liquid make-up with coffee cream. Or something like that. I don’t really know nor care. ^_^ Anyway, so he drinks it and he ends up showing us his marvelous belly.
I have already posted the animated gif of this multiple gut punching scene at the top of this post. Anyway, this is from the same film as above. This time, one of the maids got the best of the Big Bomber as she unleashes a flurry of gut punches on Mr. Moran. I just love the really fake and exaggerated gut punching sounds.
And, finally, this was a video that I’ve been hunting for everywhere. Thank goodness that a fellow Filipino uploaded the whole movie for Kambal Na Kamao. Unfortunately, he/she used a camcorder to video tape the TV, so it’s quite blurry… Anyway, if you watched the original version, the gut punching scene was edited so badly that the “good stuff” was always getting interrupted. Thanks to the robust power of Windows Movie Maker, I was able to stitch Bomber’s gut punching scene with no interruptions. The result? Wow. Just wow. Yes, I’m admiring my own work. Lol. Anyway, it’s just so awesome seeing Bomber get his judogi get slowly stripped away as we see his glorious, sweaty chubby body (yes, I can still see the sweat glisten through the VHS noises). I love to see just how helpless he is as the boxer, Rolando Rohol, does great work with punching Bomber’s belly.
If you can, go ahead and watch the original video. You’ll see how Bomber has the upper hand throughout the first part of the fight. He did a great job selling his bad guy persona. And then, finally, when the payoff finally hit, where he gets his just desserts, it ends up being all so orgasmic. Maybe not to most, but definitely to certain folk just like myself.
Anyway, these are three other Bomber Moran films that I have been desperately searching for. I’m posting it here for that little chance that someone actually knows, or even better, has one or all of these must-have Bomber Moran films…
Chinatown: Sa Kuko Ng Dragon – This was a “Bloodsport” clone and starred Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr. (who is a husky bear himself). Bomber shows up in the first scene where he was the first “evil” fighter in the ring. He is shirtless and wearing suspenders that supported a baggy-looking pants. Both of his arms get tied up at one point and the good guy (not sure who it was), punches him repeatedly on the gut then on his family jewels. There is this photo of Professor Toru Tanaka which resembles that scene I’m talking about…
Magbiro Ka Sa Lasing, Huwag Sa Bagong Gising – This was an ’80s comedy that starred Chiquito. Bomber got shirtless in this scene and tries to make advances towards a “hot” lady. The lady then stops his aggressive advances by tickling him. Needless to say, that was pretty hot. Anyway, later in the film, he gets gut punched repeatedly by Chiquito.
I.S.W.A.K. – I am not even sure as to what the exact title is. It’s supposed to be a pun on S.W.A.T. teams. So the title might be “S.W.A.K.” Unfortunately, only the Tagalog-speaking folk would understand the joke by having the “I” before the rest of the acronyms. Anyway, if there’s one video I would love to acquire from this list, this would be it. He is always shirtless on all of his scenes and is only wearing shorts (I think it was jeans). He plays the leader of a terrorist group and he would spend most of his time walking around and taunting the prisoners. I remember how erotic it was to see him practically naked while the hot sun caused his body to glisten in sweat. At one point, Redford White (the hero), finally captures Bomber Moran; and Bomber, for some reason, gets cornered on a big tree while Redford wraps a rope on poor shirtless Bomber. Seriously, I really believe that the director or writer was exactly like me. This movie was a full-blown chubby bear dream come true.
I’m hoping against hope that someone will one day upload those videos somewhere or even sell them. I want many people to know or remember Bomber Moran. Thank you for all of the entertainment, Bomber. Thank you.
If you have visited this site before, you might notice that it has completely lost its really gay light blue color (which also happened to be my favorite color). I just thought, “What the heck, let’s spruce up this joint.” Also, I feel that I have somewhat abandoned the blog for the past few months due to personal issues. So, I decided that I needed to change things up a bit and be more productive, which was why I have doubled my post counts this month (compared to the past two months alone). I’m making amends and will continue to post the best of the best this month (well, subjective of course, as it’s still all about my personal attractions). Unfortunately, I’m going on vacation next week which is also why I’m posting a lot as well.
One thing I added is an advertisement for the Children’s Miracle Network. I would just like to ask a favor and to please click on it when you get a chance (or even a few more times if you can). Basically, I picked a sponsor while you guys and gals voluntarily watch my sponsor’s ad. And based on the length of watching it and/or amount of click-thrus, this blog earns balloon points which, in turn, are used as monetary equivalent by my sponsor to donate to the Children’s Miracle Network. It’s for a good cause and I’d feel better knowing that the upcoming movie, bruno, will be doing something good. Anyway, the ad is on the bottom of the sidebar. And with that, I thank you very much…
I photoshopped away the biker in the above photo,
which you can find at AdsOfTheWorld
Speaking of advertisements, Içimdeki Ayi, had posted this pretty funny Doritos commercial…
I also want to apologize to those who’d email me or post on this blog and even the message board as I tend to be an absentee host. Just be patient with me and I’ll get to you. Mmkay? -_^
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t that Sean of Hot Fur &
Britain’s Next Bear Model fame holding the “pizzus”?
Anyway, hope you guys like the new look. And, now, I’ll shut up and let’s get back to talking about bears, bears, and even more bears…
In this edition of Goonday Moonday, all of the media here are from ads of some kind (courtesy of AdsOfTheWorld.com). I am still amazed to only find a handful of ads showing large men in flattering or the very least, respectful, ways. For example, the above ad appears to be a very respectable commercial. But look closely and pay attention to the product that’s being sold… Caught it? Good. Yes, we have another hefty man being used as an “humorous advertising device” (I made this term up).
Am I bitter at this common practice? Yes and no. Yes, since as we are all admirers of large men, we have a better grasp and understanding for men of such beautiful sizes. As such, we prefer to view our objects of affection in a much better light. And, no, because, in some ways, we feel like we belong in such an exclusive group that the rest of the world won’t ever understand. When we see such husky and chubby men in the media being ridiculed (whether it be inoffensively or no), we can’t help but grin as we know and feel something that is utterly and uniquely ours. Laugh all they want, but we get the last laugh as we partake in a celebratory visual feast.
Still, that doesn’t mean that we cannot change the world’s view on large men…
Anyway, here’s a pretty cool commercial about construction workers enjoying some fine afternoon dining with a Wendy’s Gourmet Mushroom Swiss Burger…
There’s really nothing “negative” about the above commercial. However, it inadvertently juxtaposes “macho” men with “queer” behavior. Basically, it sends a message that this ad is and should be funny because rugged men with facial hair should not be eloquent, polite, and, well, “queenie.” In turn, it also inadvertently compares gay folk with theatre-going (note my spelling of “theater”) English folk. -_^
From the rugged construction workers, we’ll now take a look at sumo wrestlers — who are, quite possibly, the most-used HAD (my acronym for my made-up term, “humorous advertising device”).
So why are sumo men funny? Why is their weight a great punchline for a joke? And why are they funnier when they’re wearing a tutu or about to celebrate gay love?
With those questions in mind, here’s a Men’s Health magazine ad…
First of all, BearMythology completely disagrees with the above ad. That unbelievably gorgeous image of a chubby bear not only has a body of a God, but someone I and many others will definitely worship. You know that ancient & mystical Sanskrit word of “OHM”? It was actually our female & gay bear/chub loving ancestors’ term to describe a buddha (not the slimmer Buddha, of course) when they see one walking on the streets. They would actually say, “Oh Holy Moley!” or “OHM!” (thus it was recorded the very first instance of internet slang).
Now let’s take a look at ads that are just using silhouettes of large men.
Admirers of stocky & large men are typically torn: healthwise, it’s better for such men to be “fit” rather than husky or obese. Unfortunately, we love them big. And, more often than not, to us, the bigger the better.
Well, that’s something that I cannot cover on a post that’s just called “Goonday Moonday.” It’s too complicated. 😛
And to end this post, here are more ads of our beautiful big men…
Okay, I lied. This is the last thing I’m going to say. I’m typically very open and forgiving, but I absolutely hate the following ad. Any ad that equates depression to obesity then sell a gym out of it is downright low and insulting. The chubby man needs to see mental help and not an aerobics instructor…
Every Friday, I will provide a weekly wrap-up then post a screenshot from a movie and I would like for you guys and gals to guess who the actor is and what movie it is from… Just post your answers in the comments section. The answers will be posted the following Friday.
I was gone for a bit due to my being at CES. Part of my plans were to take photos of the beefy trifecta of David Ortiz, Prince Fielder, and Joba Chamberlain at the Sharp booth. Unfortunately, I missed out on all three photo opportunities! Anyway here are some photos I am leeching from others who were lucky enough to have seen these 3 woofy baseball players… Man, Sharp really knew how to pick their husky athletes to promote their LCDs…

More King Kong Fu madness and with a special focus on a particular body region.

As for the answers from last week’s TGIF:WWU…
I’m pretty saddened, but damn, the tanktop, exposed furry arms, and thick biceps sure make up for it though. Plus, we get a peek at that belly — or whatever’s left of it (lol). Anyway, let’s look back at the once chubby John DiResta…
One year ago, I decided to blog about a large, yet hidden, part of me: my attractions and love for “bearish men.” It was very new to me, because prior to this, I managed a private Yahoo Group that pretty much did the same thing I’m doing now here (and long story short, I abandoned that group because I thought that it was best if I “turned straight” — thank goodness I didn’t go with it).
Over the course of that year, I have met many new and old friends alike. I am very thankful to all of you for browsing through, commenting (both positive and negative), and supporting this blog. I can’t express my gratitude enough for being able to share such passions with like-minded people.
So with that, I’ve decided to drop the “Weblog” as this blog is starting to have a life of its own. Plus, I seem to imply that my name is “BearMythology.” Anyway, I’m not “physically” a bear, though the years seem to be putting some good pounds on me. I’m slowly trying to “come out of the closet” somewhat, so if you have a MySpace page or LiveJournal blog, do add me as your friend. Also, if you have a YouTube page, please add or invite me. I’m not quite “savvy” with all of these social-networking sites since I’m not a very “sociable” person (both online and off).
So, what happened this past year?
My number one bear is still Ray Winstone.
Chris Dowd is one media personality I am unbelievably massively obsessed with.
Heinz Ollesch, Terry Hollands, Leon White, Reese Hoffa, Manuel Martinez, Christian Cantwell, Prince Fielder, Joba Chamberlain, Jeff Saturday, and Kasey Studdard are just but a handful few of my favorite bearish athletes.
I posted about Warren Sapp about 1 post too many… And I will continue to post about this woofy bear!
Strongman and musclechub extraordinaire Phil Martin emailed me and he was super friendly.
Interviewed a fantastically woofy straight pro wrestler, Shane Morbid.
Got involved in some online drama with a strongman’s (Boris Haraldsson) girlfriend which fortunately led to a happy ending.
Recently started doing weekly polls (Two Woofy Tuesday) for which I’m not doing too good in (I’m 0-for-3!).
Having way too much fun on Shirtless Saturday.
I love pro-wrestling way too much as it completes the trifecta of my bear fetishes.
I’m always fascinated/horrified at what the straight guys tend to comment about this blog. Here’s one recent discussion about my J-Rocc posting. (“Popular gay blog”? Lol)
Here’s my most important post ever on the blog: Carl Sagan’s A Pale Blue Dot.
Well, that’s pretty much a small sampling of what happened this past year. Here’s looking forward to Year 2…
Dave Williams was the late singer of Drowning Pool. The band had a hit song called “Bodies” that has lyrics that I dedicate to…
who voted “Yes” on Proposition Hate.
I dedicate this song to all of you… And, by the way, a really big “FUCK YOU” to you as well.

As much as I enjoy doing the blog, there are times when I feel that I’m just making enemies instead of friends. I oftentimes can’t believe and understand the negative, and sometimes, hostile feedback I’d get and it does take a toll on me. This is supposed to be a fun, relaxing place, but it oftentimes becomes a place where I end up annoying or even disturbing others.
So, I think that I need to take a break. I just want to let you guys know that I’d be gone for a bit. I really don’t want to, but my sanity requires it.
Screw ethics… This was the reply I received.
hun it has nothing to do with the fact that you are gay he is being harassed by many gay men on his website on his facebook since the adding of this video you have onto your channel i know because i actually am his girlfriend, they were able to contact Boris because you released his full name on the video! Boris is not only a strong man competitor but a father and a personal trainer, he is being asked constantly if he is wanting to join that bearmythology group and having guys asking him can they suck his dick, Boris wouldn’t be harassed because that video has a different message to it its not just a video of him competing its a type of turn on video to people with that fetish. and for you bringing u the fact that you feel that its because its gay if i was a guy that had nothing to do with what you were talking about and you were putting it out there as if he did i would be pissed to if i was in his situation he is harassed and it is ridiculous and Boris isnt homophobic hes just pissed of he doesn’t want his dick sucked and he doesn’t want to meet up with gay bears wanting a quick fuck, so i will say this to you thank you for removing the video
and another thing
in the end that is all we wanted was the video to be removed im sure many people who are involuntarily featured on your channel may feel the same way try and consider that sometime
I’m still debating whether to respond to Boris’ girlfriend. Join the “bearmythology group”? What group is she talking about? Oh wow, I released Boris’ full name! Wow. Again, I am the cause of all this. I posted that video clip “because [I feel that] its gay”? Hey lady, make up your mind. Does this have nothing to do with “my gayness” or not?
I just hope that Boris’ girlfriend stumbles upon this blog and gets frustrated at my inconsiderate posting of her YouTube reply. Not only that, I hope she requests that I remove this photograph as well. I mean, God-forbid, he is not only a strong man competitor but a father AND a personal trainer.
