BearMythology: A 1-Year Retrospective

year-1-ray-winstone

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.

John Goodman, Richard Karn, James Gandolfini, Mark Addy, Faizon Love, Kevin James, Andy Richter, Larry The Cable Guy, and Drew Powell are just but a handful few of my favorite bearish actors.

Chad Brock, Steve Harwell, Steven Page, Billy Milano, Dave Williams, and Kirk Windstein are just but a handful few of my favorite bearish musicians.

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.

I am completely in love with the talented and lovable Joey Oglesby, sometimes known as Donnie Davies.

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.

[BearBeat], [BearPit], and [BearFic] are and will continue to be my very unique bear fetishes.

Chubarama — the greatest chubby men blog — is my only and greatest promoter/supporter.  Thanks, guys!

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.

Dominic Filiou and Ty Olsson are not as hefty as I once knew them.

In my American-centric worldview, I was treated to the fantastic bearish athletes of Ssirum, Kirkpinar, Kushti Wrestling, Kabaddi Wrestling, and, lol, Rugby

Well, that’s pretty much a small sampling of what happened this past year.  Here’s looking forward to Year 2…
