BOOM! POW! BOOM! That’s pretty much the only way I could verbalize my instant thoughts when I first saw this Australian weightlifter. His name is Damon Kelly and when I quickly did some thorough research (lol), I noticed that for a weightlifter, he’s quite stylish, to the point that I might even call him a “hipster” (or “bipster” for “bear hipster”). Let me lay out the evidence, and you be the judge… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Sometimes, there’s a photo or even animated gif that doesn’t need explaining. Someone posted this from Tumblr and I’m pretty sure that this is from “No Ordinary Family”…
I shared a clip of Cleveland Jr.’s rap battle with Kanye West from my Tumblr page, which then led me to the making of said rap battle in this video:
And the rest was history. I discovered Mr. Kevin Michael Richardson and he’s definitely dreamy (at a quick glance, I thought he was James Monroe Iglehart). And what caught my attention was his unbelievably sexy deep bass voice. Check him out singing from the canceled show, “The Knights Of Prosperity” (I probably would have watched if I had known that he was in it):
His character’s name was Rockefeller Butts.
And check out his Wikipedia’s description of his work. As an animation/gaming geek, this blurb is quite orgasmic:
Richardson has usually portrayed villainous characters due to his deep voice.
His credits include Captain Gantu from Lilo & Stitch, Goro in Mortal Kombat, the second voice of Skulker on Danny Phantom, Sarevok in the Baldur’s Gate series, Jolee Bindo in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Crunch Bandicoot in two of the Crash Bandicoot games, Tartarus from Halo 2, The Joker in The Batman, Ultimate Supreme Executive Chairman Drek in Ratchet & Clank, Antauri in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, Openly Gator from Queer Duck, Barney Rubblefrom modern-day animated series and movies based upon The Flintstones, Maurice the Aye-Aye from The Penguins of Madagascar, the unbeatable guardian of the time portal in Samurai Jack, and the voice of Exile in the late ’90s cartoon Road Rovers.
He often plays characters based on and satirizing comedian Bill Cosby, such as on Family Guy (with the voice of Jerome in the 7th episode of the 8th season) and The Boondocks. He also voices Cleveland Brown, Jr. and Lester Krinklesac in The Cleveland Show.
Finally, here are more woofy photos of Kevin Michael Richardson:
But on today’s post, I just want to point out a handsome actor who played a bartender in Season 1, Episode 5 (The Case Of The Lonely White Dove). Unfortunately, IMDb nor the end credits shed any light on this mysterious stranger’s true identity…
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 in to 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.
Peter C. was kind enough to point out to me that in Season 7, Episode 1 of Ace Of Cakes, Chef Duff Goldman got shirtless to swim in the icy waters of Alaska. Not only that, he took the following screenshots as well. Oy vey!
And if anyone knows how we can find a video clip of this, then I would be forever in your debt…
I rarely post on Sundays, but I figure I change all that by forcing me to work with a theme. Hence, the nonsensical “BearSong Sunday” was born. And let me start things off with the underrated Samiam singing Mudhill. Great song, even greater video, and a much greater-looking lead singer: Jeff Beebout. I can’t seem to find their official website though they do have a MySpace page. In their missing official site, each group member posted a unique biography of himself and, needless to say, Jeff’s bio was my favorite. It was written in a style that I’ve been trying to emulate to this day. Anyway, I only mentioned that because what’s going on in the video is very similar to what he had said on his bio: painfully and achingly sad with a touch of absurdist humor.
Jeff Beebout does not only possess an amazing voice, he also bears the bullgoon face that I tend to get attracted to. He may not be large or even husky, but it doesn’t negate the fact that he’s oozing with manly sexiness.
Here’s another person who resembles Jeff Beebout: Steve Zandi. Steve is a co-lip singer of Harry Laos in their rendition of Chicago’s Hard Habit To Break. Harry Laos used to have a YouTube page that I subscribed to a few years ago but it’s been taken down. Anyway, his friend Steve Zandi were in some of the videos and quite possibly the one main reason I subscribed to Harry’s page. Anyway, as I have managed to save some of his videos, I uploaded one in DailyMotion and it appears to not have been deleted yet.
James Monroe Iglehart (pronounced eagle heart) has one of the most memorable songs, Silent E, in a show that I’ve been a staunch supporter of: The Electric Company. I would have paid more attention in grade school if my teacher looked like Mr. Iglehart. And, wow, this gorgeous bear can sing as well.
Thanks to good buddy, BigNHusky, we now know who that massive, massive powerlifting musclechub: PatrioticHighlander from YouTube (real name is Ernie Beath). In his YouTube page, he said that he’s in the process of writing a strength book. Wow. A powerlifter and a writer. Awesome combination.
Here are two videos where we get to see Mr. Ernie Beath doing lifts while shirtless. Unbelievably. Spectacular…
This is the video where someone got that awesome
