Twenty-two years ago, I was in high school and still oblivious to the world of strongmen competitions. So thank goodness for YouTube. It has become a rich video archive of classic strongmen competitions. This one in particular is called “Pure Strength” (the 1989 episode). HITStrongman posted the whole event in 7 parts. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Check out the trailer for “The Good Guy” which appears to be a grindhouse-type of film. And, I’m already sold!
And since I’m like obsessive-compulsive about better-quality photos/screenshots, here are the HD screenshots from the trailer:
Mr. Cox is obviously typecast as a killer, especially if you check out his IMDb resume. However, check out these trailers of short & feature films displaying his dramatic range…
“Table 6” – Short film for which Patrick Cox speaks with an Irish accent
“The Book Of Noah” – Feature film that hasn’t been released
Finally, let’s end with this awesome illustration of Patrick Cox who has this affinity of crossing his arms — even in illustrations!
Okay, I lied… Here’s a close-up of Patrick’s massive and beefy chest! Aroooooooo!!!!!

For Goonday Moonday, I would like to present to you a wonderfully handsome big bearish fella named Patrick Cox. I first uncovered him from Tumblr and I have to give a big shout out to randombearstuff for sharing this deliciously goony goodness with us. Randombearstuff is a Tumblr blog, so expect NSFW stuff! 🙂
Patrick Cox just has that look that completely owns me. He is thick, brutish, massive, and just downright gorgeous. Dare I even say, “perfect”? Yes, in fact, I will. He’s just freaking PERFECT!
Before I even get to more of his photos and videos, I just need to share this thing about him. On his Facebook he posted this image then commented on it. For easy viewing, I have placed his comment on that image…
How can I not love this big cuddly bear? Here’s a perfect example of a human being who’s not ashamed of his own sexuality and understands that gay people are no less different from straight folk. Thank you, Mr. Cox. Thank you. And while we’re in the subject of “gayness”…
Check out his sizzle reel by Coleman O’Toole from Vimeo:
And, of course, with my very specific fetish, here are screenshots of a very specific scene from the sizzle reel… 😛
From the Tumblr images, it led me to one of his movies. The following are the video and screenshots from the TV movie, “Ben 10: Alien Swarm”… He had a short scene (though I must admit, I didn’t actually watch the flick just forwarded to his unfortunate way-too-brief scene). The film seems pretty cool, so I’ll watch it when I get some time.

Apparently, I missed that beginning part!!! (So there are 2 scenes total.)
Here’s a webseries that’s currently working on getting financed called “Walkin’ In L.A.: A Comedy Web Series”:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
As this post has gotten way too long, let me take a break from all the hotness, and will continue with Part 2…

Now if there is a face that makes you want to describe as a “bullgoon,” then my dear friends that above photo of Stephen Peterman is a perfect example. I finally got to know who he was; I once posted his “unknown” photo here: Sometimes, You Just Wanna Say “Awwww”… But as a refresher, here is that unknown favorite photo again…
Speaking of LSU Tigers, chubby wonder twins John Goodman and Paul Rae are huge fans.
Stephen Peterman was then drafted by the Dallas Cowboys but he is currently playing for the Detroit Lions. Speaking of which, Detroit just got their first win yesterday, ending their 19-game losing streak (they haven’t won since December 23, 2007).
Joell Ortiz is a Puerto Rican rapper who specializes in freestyle. I am not truly a big fan of freestyling, but I do respect the art of improvising hip hop lyrics. And, maybe I’m biased, but I have listened to a number of Joell Ortiz’s music and I can safely say that he is a master of his craft. Perhaps the eye candy of such a husky and stocky Latino is clouding my vision? Well, you guys decide for yourself. Here are a couple of music videos from Mr. Ortiz. (Check out his blog, which is written by other bloggers and Mr. Ortiz himself — just read the “Tags”… We’re using the same WordPress template. Word up.)
This one is my favorite. It’s titled, Good Times.
Here are some photos (courtesy of Natty Photography) from the making of Memories…
You’ll notice that Joell likes to wear a wifebeater a lot. Here is a NSFW interview of him just wearing a black tanktop. Gadzooks! This Brooklyn Bullgoon definitely has thick arms and a massive chest.
Currently, Joell Ortiz is part of a hip-hop supergroup called Slaughterhouse… Joell reminds me of Yankees pitcher, C.C. Sabathia, in this album cover.
This first song that they have released is very radio-friendly, in my opinion (even with the explicit lyrics). I expected their songs to be a bit more hardcore, but maybe this is that introduction song to draw audiences in. In fact, Joell’s lyrics are a bit “subdued,” for lack of a better word. Still, he knows how to flow with his rhymes and, as a bonus, he’s wearing a wifebeater on a couple of scenes…
What is it with rap and blood? Check out Spain’s Panzers’ album cover…
A kind reader, Matthew, has pointed me out to a film from Uruguay called Gigante. Not only that, he also attached these high-res photos of its handsome lead actor: Horacio Carmandule. Thank you, sir! IMDb’s plot synposis reads as follow:
A chronicle of a supermarket security guard’s obsession with a late-shift janitor.
Anyway, it appears to be a film that I would enjoy (re: my Pruitt Taylor Vince’s Heavy love). I always find stories of aching lusts/love toward people they are unable to show affections towards to extremely fascinating.
I mean, hey, just look at this blog where I tend to mostly post about straight men! 😉 & 😦
Thankfully, according to Matthew, the film did not explore the “creepy” aspect of obsession, but, rather, the loving side of it. More about the fascination side of it, from what I’m understanding.
Here is a trailer from YouTube (love the punk version of “Everybody Needs Somebody” that plays halfway through):
Shirtless scenes to boot? Hells, yeah!
I just got back from watching brüno, and for some reason, after eating dinner, I kinda still have this craving for something Mexican (if you saw the movie, you’ll understand why). Behold, a handful of videos from YouTube’s goonish and husky Mexican, armack2008.
The big guy loves his movie soundtracks…
And since BearMythology is a family-oriented website (*winks*), if you want to know more about Mr. Armack2008 (you know, like full frontals and bondage), go to this YouTube page. Click on the “more info” link in that video’s description and you will be directed to the seedy underworld of straight porn. Hide the children! -_^
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.
Just finished watching the third episode of HBO’s True Blood Season 2 and I’m loving it so far. Chris Bauer could have gone shirtless on two occasions yet the writers always managed to squash such perfect opportunities (the dancing in Merlotte’s Bar and Maryann’s bacchanalia). Anyway, this post is not about Mr. Bauer, but about Patrick Gallagher. He hasn’t done much yet in the show and I’m hoping that he does something really cool soon. Unfortunately, I’m composing this post from an internet kiosk (I’m currently on vacation, so I will be scarce though I’ll try to post whenever I can). Anyway, here are photos and a video of Patrick Gallagher…
Strongman and musclebrute expert, Rich, shared that video clip of the woofy Shane Hamman from the 2004 Olympics in Athens in the Real_Thick Yahoo Group. In the video, Mr. Hamman was about to snatch the weights when something enormous got in the way. Shane then gave a disappointed look, but little did he know, his musclebear fans just dreamily sighed a collective OMG.
Most of the following photos are from his MySpace Page.
