Classic Goonday Moonday: Pure Strength Strongmen Of 1989

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’!]

Goonday Moonday: Patrick Cox (Part 2 Of 2)

And we’re back with Part 2 of Goonday Moonday’s Patrick Cox…  (Part 1 is here.)

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

This photo is just so awesome! I love how he's just so "meh" about it.

Holy crap! Bull Hurley!!!!!

Production still from the unreleased "The Dead Shall Walk"
I renamed this photo to "Patrick Cox likes to cross his arms.jpg"

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!!!!!

Goonday Moonday: Patrick Cox (Part 1 Of 2)

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”…

I <3 U, PATRICK!!!

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.


This video is also courtesy of Coleman O’Toole from Vimeo!
Apparently, I missed that beginning part!!!  (So there are 2 scenes total.)

Come on now... Who can resist such cuteness?

Here’s a webseries that’s currently working on getting financed called “Walkin’ In L.A.: A Comedy Web Series”:

As this post has gotten way too long, let me take a break from all the hotness, and will continue with Part 2

Goonday Moonday: Stephen Peterman

Stephen Peterman

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…

LSU Tigers @ the 2004 Sugar Bowl.

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).

Goonday Moonday: Joell Ortiz

joell ortiz

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.

CC Sabathia New York Yankees

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…

Goonday Moonday: Horacio Carmandule In “Gigante”

Horacio Carmandule - Gigante 01
These eyes ... are cryin'. These eyes have seen a lot of loves but they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you

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.

Gigante_PosterBefore you gay guys get all excited, it’s a female late-shift janitor.  Why must all these woofy men fall for chicks?  No offense, ladies.  -_^

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):

Goonday Moonday: Armack2008 Loves To Show Off His Husky Body

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!  -_^

Goonday Moonday: My Filipino Bud Spencer, Bomber Moran

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).

Bomber Moran collage

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.

Bomber Moran gut punches

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.

(Make sure to click on those “bad guy” and “gut punch” links to check out my posts on bearish villains in movies and pro-wrestling.)

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.”

Bomber Moran 04

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.

Bomber Moran 03

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.”

Bomber Moran 11Just to prove my point, compare his facial features with one of my
recent post: Patrick Gallagher

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…  🙂

Bomber Moran 01“Gosh darn it, Will.  Quit your yapping and just entertain the people with
my super hot photos and videos…”

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.

Bomber Moran punch 03

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…

Professor Toru Tanaka

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.

Goonday Moonday: Patrick Gallagher In “True Blood”

Patrick Gallagher true blood 01

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…

Goonday Moonday: Shane Hamman’s Big Package Got In The Way

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.

In this late edition of Goonday Moonday, here are some promo photos from 2008’s Oz Strongman Nationals.  Apparently, Hummer has donated their H3s to be part of the competition.

And here is the massive Australian strongman, Warrick Brant, displaying his brute strength…

Goonday Moonday: Ludovic Berthillot (Shirtless Edition)

Wow.  Talk about bonus.  As I continued to research for more info on Ludovic Berthillot and his goonish good looks, I stumbled upon a photo of him shirtless!  I almost fainted, ’cause I’m gay like that.  I also got a program that resizes jpegs without losing too much quality and I used it to experiment on Ludovic’s shirtless photo.  Here it is and enjoy…

ludovic-berthillot-roi-de-levasion-large1

The behind-the-scenes photo is from the film Le Roi De L’évasion.  I got that photo from ecrans.fr.  You know that I will be keeping an eye out on that film…  -_^

Also the previous photos from part 1 of this Goonday Moonday post apparently came from a 15-minute film: Block (it’s not even listed in IMDB).  Filmmaker Yvan Georges-dit-soudril’s MySpace for this film is here.

ludovic-berthillot-block

And here’s a 1 minute preview of Block.

By the way, here are some more Berthillot goon-ness…  When I first saw this photo, I told myself, “Self, I think this is Bloodrayne or maybe the sequel; or maybe it’s Drag Queen night at the Eagles.”

ludovic-berthillot-bloody-mallory

Wrong!

Apparantly, it’s from a film called Bloody Mallory which has been called a Buffy The Vampire Slayer-ripoff.  I haven’t seen it, and since I’m a lover of crappy cinema, this is definitely on my to-watch list.

Goonday Moonday: Ludovic Berthillot

Almost a year ago, I’ve posted about Ludovic Berthillot and I just got some email requests for more info on him.  Well, I am more than happy to oblige and it’s something that I can post for today’s Goonday Moonday as Monsieur Berthillot has that inherently attractive bullgoon look…

ludovic-berthillot-myspace-01I just love this photo shot…
He somewhat resembles Vladimir Kalinichenko.

I found out that he has a MySpace Page with photos that I haven’t seen before.  In YouTube, there’s a behind-the-scenes look of one of his movies (Oeil Pour Oeil) where he’s also one of the main stars; as a bonus, he stripped down to his black underwear (sadly, no face shot, but that husky body is unmistakable).  He also has a short film titled Les Millionaires on YouTube.  I have embedded both of these videos in this post.

Does anybody know if Oeil Pour Oeil is on DVD yet?  I checked IMDB and

since 2007…  Anyway, just look at the following screenshots…
Yes, yes, yes, I know, I know… I’m a perv…  ^_^

Goonday Moonday: Dan Lauria & Michael Roberds In “Alien Trespass”

The trailer for Alien Trespass caught me by surprise as it’s definitely a type of film that I’d be watching on opening day.  And by goodness gracious golly gee, Dan Lauria appears as the cliched skeptical Sheriff.  What better way than to post some Dan Lauria photos as a woofy officer of the law for Goonday Moonday?…

I also want to plug in one of my all-time favorite guilty pleasures: The Lost Skeleton Of Cadavra.  It just reminded me of Alien Trespass and there is actually a sequel for The Lost Skeleton Of Cadavra!: The Lost Skeleton Returns Again.  And you know why I’m plugging this film in?  Well, it’s because there’s a woofy bear in it, that’s why!  If you have seen this film, you have already probably said Brian Howe, and by golly, you are right!  So let me interrupt with a Brian Howe publicity interview from Journeyman.

Goonday Moonday: Garry Frank

Garry Frank has got to be my all-time favorite powerlifter.  To me, he’s just supremely perfect: the squinty eyes, the husky/muscular build (huscular), round bald head, thick arms & legs, and, man, sometimes I can’t add anything more to that.  I mean, just look at this perfect musclechub…  If there is a certain specific type of “face” I tend to get attracted to the most, then it has to be what I would call “The Garry Frank Bulldog Look” (I will post about this “look” throughout this week).

Goonday Moonday: Online & Movie Goonish Bears

On today’s Goonday Moonday, we have another smorgasbord of goonish fellas from the internet and upcoming films…

The photo above is from a site called Hot Chicks with Douchebags.  I am just not gonna make a comment about that site…  😛

And on a much better note, the above two photos are of the husband of this lady blogger.  I sometimes randomly read other blogs even though they are completely not in tune with my interests.  Thankfully, this blog had those two photos and they’re just way too cute and must be shared…

supercapers-bear-01

supercapers-bear-02

The above two screenshots are from the trailer for Super Capers.  I was not quite sure as to what to expect from the trailer, but when this shorter John Goodman lookalike appeared in his tanktop, I was like, “Yes, please!”

i-love-you-man-bear-10

i-love-you-man-bear-11

Watching the trailer for I Love You, Man, it made me realize just how these “bromance”-themed flicks are being embraced by the public.  America definitely needs this as it’s a step forward for accepting male bonding without it sounding like a gay punchline.  So, in turn, it’s also a step forward to make people aware that being “gay” is not an “evil” thing.  Or, maybe, I’m just reading too much in to this…

Goonday Moonday: Construction Workers & Assorted Large Men

dolorminworker

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…

http://adsoftheworld.net/videos/croquetwendys.mov

wendys-croquet-construction-06

wendys-croquet-construction-09

wendys-croquet-construction-12

wendys-croquet-construction-14

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”).

monstersumo

companhiasumo

w670-walkman-phone-sumo

luxaflex-sumo

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…

Goonday Moonday: Mike Hallick As Mantaur & Bruiser Mastino

mantaur-001

A few months ago, I posed one of life’s important questions: “What happened to pro-wrestlers like these?” In this case, pro-wrestlers of the bearish and massively goonish mold.  I then posted a photo of Bruiser Mastino who was only wearing a very revealing singlet.  Ever since then, I kept doing a “monthly google” for this massive musclechub.  Well, what do you know?  Not only did it lead me to finding a couple of his wrestling matches, it led me to a Bruiser Mastino who only wore something much better than a singlet: wrestling trunks!

However, before we get to the even better goonie good-stuff, here are some photos of the woofy Mr. Hallick as one of my favorites in the old WWF, Mantaur…

He had introduced me to a fetish that I wasn’t aware of.

And as an important sidenote to this post, Mantaur was not the only big fella in the early and mid-1990’s.  My other favorites were Typhoon/Tugboat (Fred Ottman) and PN News/Cannonball Grizzly (Paul Neu).  I’ve had many nights where I would fantasize the three of them together as this crew of evil henchmen.  Here are some visuals of the other two naughty bears…  (Alright, alright, what about Earthquake, Yokozuna, Bastion Booger?  They’re there, I just want to keep my number of top goons in threes…)

Unfortunately (for you and not me), with my BearBeat fetish, they always end up getting beat up and dominated by <enter generic and non-descript fantasy good guy(s)/gal(s) here>.  Here’s a close approximation of my BearBeat fantasies (of course, there are no actual usage of dangerous objects in my PG-rated fantasies).

As a treat, a video was just uploaded a few hours ago between Bruiser Mastino and Cannonball Grizzly.  According to the YouTuber, they were real life pals…

It’s interesting to note how Cannonball Grizzly started out more chubby then later on transformed into a musclechub, while Bruiser Mastino started out as being more husky (or as a blog reader once mentioned this term, “Huscular”) but have now also turned into a musclechub.  And for the sake of this post, both massive men are definitely of the bullgoon make and model.

Finally, here’s the match that you’ve all been waiting for…  It’s a squash match between Bruiser Mastino and El Puerto Riqueño from ECW Holiday Hell 1995.  My jaws literally dropped when I saw this match.  Unfortunately for me, he dominated the little man and it did not do my fetish any favors.  But, hey, beggars cannot be choosers as we were all treated to a big goon wrestling around in just those sweet, sweet trunks.  So I ask the question again: “What happened to pro-wrestlers like these?”…

Goonday Moonday: Uh-Oh, Sounds Like Somebody’s Got A Case Of The Mondays

[EDIT: Photos have been deleted as requested by the owner of the photos.  Just check out Joe Powell Photography’s SmugMug photo site for the photos.]

I tend to give myself a blog break on Sundays and Mondays.  But it looks like I’m gonna be forced to post something on Mondays, as I seemed to have gotten a case of the Moondays — or in this case, Goonday Moondays.  (Need a refresher on what a goon is?)  Also, I have been lax and inconsiderate in not adding the great Bullneck in my “Bear Blog” links.  So this new regular post is dedicated to the expert of all things “bullgoon”…

Also, if you guys have some clever pun that I can use on Sundays, feel free to drop me a line.  Though part of me is hoping to high heaven that you don’t encourage me.  I’d like to take some break from da bears from time to time…  ^_^

So what’s the best way to start Goonday Moonday?  How about with some unauthorized usage of Gerard Benderoth photographs “borrowed” from Joe Powell Photography’s SmugMug photo site (Strongman Competition page)?  I could just link you guys to Mr. Powell’s photo site, but I just have to have images in every blog post I make.  So enjoy and partake in my evil activity before Gerard Benderoth comes crashing down my door then arrests me for such illegal acts…  Hmm…  On second thought…
