Happy Father’s Day!

Look long and hard enough, you’ll find My Number One Bear wearing nothing but his full Father’s Day suit…  -_^

[BearPit] Shackles, Armpits, And James Gandolfini

Romance & Cigarettes is an odd film. It’s a compliment, I guess, but you just have to see it to believe it. It’s definitely a film that will achieve a cult-like status…

Anyway, there is one scene in particular that just screamed Bear Bondage. Let me explain the following scene. James imagines himself as the biblical Samson who is captured and blinded by the Philistines (played by his wife and daughters). As his hair has gotten longer (after being cut off by the treacherous Delilah), he is in the temple of the Philistines, shackled for their entertainment. James/Samson (who is still bald, but he does have a bandana on) prays to God to give him strength so that he may “die with the Philistines!”

What made the scene really quirky and downright ridiculous was that this happened in their backyard’s playground swingset. L. O. L.

But, hey, we get to see the ever woofy James Gandolfini all shackled up and proudly displaying his manly physique for all of us to admire.

Ray Winstone: aka My Number One Bear

Ah, Mr. Ray Winstone. He’s quite possibly my number one bear. It used to be James Gandolfini. Richard Karn before him. Then John Goodman. <sighs>

Anyway, I often wonder why I was so attracted to him. He’s not the typical bear I tend to get attracted to. What is it about him? His sexy voice? His oh-just-so-perfect gut? His penetrating eyes? His overwhelmingly husky and masculine face? His seeming cocky demeanor? (I love that in a bear!) Come to think of it, I guess I have illuminated my own ruminations.

The following is a collage from quite possibly the best movie evar!!11!!1! Sorry. It’s from a wonderful movie called Sexy Beast. Mr. Winstone’s actual physique should have been motion-captured in Beowulf (I’d take a well-rounded belly over a 6 pack abs) — or at least when Beowulf got older in the film.
