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’!]
Jock Samson is one of my current intense obsessions. He’s amazingly agile, cocky, and he always strips off his wrestling singlet, revealing his magnificent and gorgeous build. I’m sure I will be posting more about him, but I’d like to remain focused for a moment and let’s discuss his shirtless appearances, shall we? [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
If you want to see old-school musclechub wrestlers, then the indy circuit is the place to be. Case in point: the masked chubby known as “Bulldozer”… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
The BearMythology look has been updated again by your finicky and oft-absent blogger. Also, based on numerous suggestions, I will finally get with the 21st Century and start placing “Continue Reading” links on every post for easier reading consumption…
Anyway, my great friend, GE, sent me a link to a video that gave me a heart attack (I wonder how many heart attacks I’ve had during the course of this blog’s lifespan?): it is a video of pro-wrestler, Mark Henry, wearing only skimpy bright red speedos! Seriously, why can’t he wrestle with this type of outfit?! [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Dear ESPN Magazine: OMG. Thank you!
I was pretty harsh on ESPN Magazine’s 2010’s “The Body Issue” when Steven Holcomb’s godly physique was digitally altered. However, thanks to GE, he pinpointed me to ESPN Magazine’s “The Body Issue 2009: Battle Scars” which featured a close-up of Casey Hampton’s magnificent belly. Needless to say, seeing an almost-nude image of Mr. Hampton is an excellent way to win someone like me over — even though this was shot a year before the Holcomb-Gate fiasco. ^___^
Here is the link to the Flash Gallery of “The Body Issue 2009: Battle Scars”:
I can’t seem to embed this ESPN video, but you can briefly see him in an interview with all of the athletes — including Randy Couture — involved in that photo shoot.
Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh Steelers did not win the SuperBowl this year, so we’re gonna miss out on seeing a shirtless Casey Hampton at a SuperBowl Parade… 🙁
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.
This video is also courtesy of Coleman O’Toole from Vimeo!
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”:
As this post has gotten way too long, let me take a break from all the hotness, and will continue with Part 2…

Opened in August 2006, we are an independent gym that aim to give access to people who for many reasons don’t take regular exercise. We are not part of the “health club” culture that stormed the UK – our gym is individual and, unlike corporate health clubs, we treat our customers as individuals. We aim to get you results, whether you want to lose weight, improve your general fitness or build muscle. We are a very friendly gym and are proud of our comfortable and easygoing atmosphere. We have a wealth of experience to help you achieve your goals and maintain them.
The founder/owner (as well as being a massively-built-like-a-mack-truck brutish musclebear), Steve Winters, has also created a reality-web series on their site called Ministry Of Muscle TV. Here’s a sample video where we get to see the massive and shirtless Jay Hughes.
Warning: NSFW video intro
It’s a fantastic series and we get an intimate look at what these mythical strongmen do to prepare themselves for various strength athletics competition. Definitely check them out.
Jay Hughes is also one of Ministry Of Muscle’s stable of strongmen models who’s available for film, TV, and photography: Ministry Of Muscle Models site.
These are but a few screenshots from the web-series. Check out the bearmythology Flickr Photostream for more images of this handsome brute. (Then check out the current whole Ministry Of Muscle set here.)
And as an added bonus, here are Jay Hughes and Rob Hughes (are they related?) showing off their bellies…

I’ve posted about Casey Hampton before, but I had to save his awesome shirtless photos just for this day. But before we continue, here’s a video of the massively beautiful and shirtless Casey at the SuperBowl XLIII Champions Parade.
The above video of Pittsburgh Steelers’ defensive tackle is unfortunately blurry, so here’s a short interview of the big guy. He might not be shirtless, but he’s got to be viewed as clearly as possible.
And as we resume our regularly-scheduled program, here are the amazing shirtless photos of our deliciously chubby football player that my great friend, D.T., has found and shared for us…
And if you are looking for more photos of this handsome bear, let me direct you to the Flickr Hive Mind. I am so obsessed with this Flickr feature that I’ve lost sleep over it. Experiment with differing keywords when you’re “researching” for our spectacular biggins; who knows what awesome discoveries you’ll find…
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! -_^
Sometimes you gotta get vulgar and go: FUCKING FUCK FUCKITY FUCK FUCK!!!!!
Tommy, aka BeerBellyBear, has a series of YouTube videos that are a musclechub lover’s wet dream. The above video is just one of my all-time favorites and he did it in honor of YouTube’s IHulkOut. But if I had to make the decision between IHulkOut and BeerBellyBear, well the decision ain’t too tough at all: Triple B FTW!
Check out Tommy’s Flickr Page. I dare you not to explode.
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.

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
screenshot I posted…
This is a trailer for the ‘Ohina Short Film Showcase 2003 in Hawaii. And, more importantly, whoever picked the actors for this commercial deserves a gold star. The second musclebear is bodybuilder, Ernest Chang, and I have no clue who the other two are. My personal favorite is definitely the massively built black musclechub. The moment he showed up on the video, I actually silently spelled “Damn!” as “D-A-Y-U-M!” in my head.
I’ve been gone and will be gone off and on due to personal reasons. However, I will do my best to at least post something worth your time.
Anyway, I just got an email from Sound Chaser (who was one of the very first person who had a page dedicated to Chubby musicians). Definitely check out his link for more chubby goodness, especially his Underchub page (wowza!). I still remember being a member of his underwear chub Yahoo group back in the day.
For some reason he sent me an email which was filtered in my Spam folder. Thank goodness I go through Spam filters because I’m lame like that. 🙂 Anyway, good thing I went through my junk mail because he had sent me a link that is definitely post-worthy…
It looks like your average video of a big guy doing powerlifting stuff. But, wait! Make it all the way to 8:34 and you will see this big brutish musclechub from Norway performing a squat… in… the… nude.
Well, okay, so there’s a bit of censorship, but you guys and gals will easily use your mighty imaginations… Please don’t disappoint me. 🙂
By the way… WATCHMEN comes out tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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).
So for today’s Goonday Moonday, here is the fantastic behemoth Mr. Garry Frank…

Musclebear Heinz Ollesch won the poll when he was pitted against musclechub Phil Martin. I mentioned in the Woofy Winner Wednesday result that I was currently 0-for-3, so that meant that I would have voted for Mr. Phil Martin.
My body preference tend to lean towards the husky/chubbier types which was why I would have chosen Mr. Martin over the German Beast, Mr. Ollesch. However, Heinz is definitely a magnificent specimen and I’m not completely discounting him. I love Phil Martin a bit more because he is just so huggable! Also, I am completely attracted to his handsome face. Heinz has this brutish look while Phil has this approachable yet intimidating look that I just go nuts for. He also reminds me of this daddy bear actor, Bill Smitrovich:
Bill Smitrovich from the tv series, Life Goes On
Gerrit Badenhorst and Phil Martin
(I can’t seem to find Gerrit’s official site; I know that he’s slimmer now
and is currently a singer…)
Finally, here are more screenshots of the ever wooftiful Phil Martin in a sumo garb. Check out more photos of my favorite musclebear in such a fantastic sportswear…
Kevin Toth is on the right… Definitely another one of my musclechub fantasy…

Every Friday, I will provide a weekly wrap-up then post a screenshot from a movie and I would like for you guys and gals to guess who the actor is and what movie it is from… Just post your answers in the comments section. The answers will be posted the following Friday.
Sorry for the lack of updates. There are some changes in my work routines and it’s been causing a bit of stress. One thing you can rely on is that I will have to post on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. And if you have emailed me with questions, please be patient and I will respond to you as soon as I can.
Alex Karras and other football bears from Paper Lion showed up on Shirtless Saturday.
Of mythic archetypes and goonish looks: Mike Hallick as Mantaur & Bruiser Mastino shows up in Goonday Moonday.
In Two Woofy Tuesday (Beary Yummy Seconds), The Power Twins (David & Larry Sontag) showed up to display the infinite power of woof squared.

As for the answers from last week’s TGIF:WWU…
I remember buying the DVD for Out Of Sight when it first came out and I was amazed at its crystal clear quality. It’s no HD, but it was definitely a big improvement from VHS tapes. I also loved the fact that I didn’t have to fast-forward to the “most important bear scenes.” I can just pop the disc in and jump instantly to such “money shots.”
How time flies. Now I have ripped this movie in a hard drive and I then just extract that very scene so that I could just double-click (or one-click, for you one-clickers) the video file then loop it to my heart’s content.
That’s me in the corner watching a looped scene of White Boy Bob.
Strange Days, indeed, are ahead of us…
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…
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…)
Typhoon (Fred Ottman)
Cannonball Grizzly (Paul Neu)
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?”…

Here are some older screenshots of Ryan Vierra wearing a tanktop. The big bonus? Money shots of my fetish as well as some nip slips. For all things that are holy, don’t these beefy guys know that we go nuts at such mere acts of wanton sexiness?!
