Former WWE superstar, Shad Gaspard, just got an audition with Brett Ratner’s upcoming superhero movie, “Youngblood” via Twitter [Comic Book Movie]. I’ve never heard of “Youngblood” though I’m somewhat familiar with Chapel’s character from “Spawn.” Body-wise, Shad definitely possesses the brawny muscles for the role. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Postings have been scarce but I will be rectifying it soon. I’m thinking of bringing aboard some folks so that this blog doesn’t come into an untimely end. So if any of you guys are interested, just let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just want to let you guys know about some exciting new changes to one of the earliest and longest-running bear site out there: Bear-Pics.com. Read all about it below…

Bear-Pics Version 2010:
Bear-Pics Version 2010 is truly a conceptually unique Bear site. Working on a credit system, it’s a site that gives back rather than takes. After you join (it’s free), you get 20 credits which allows you to view 20 photos (1 credit to see 1 pic). Create galleries and then add photos, and every photo our Bear-Pics team approves will give you 10 more credits. On top of that, every time guys click on your photos, you will get an additional credit.
Coming very soon (in a week’s time) Bear-Pics will offer livestreaming, and the fun part about this is – you will also get credit for streaming… the longer you stream, the more credit you get. And once livestreaming is in place, Bear-Pics will be offering instant messages.
Every day more and more cute guys are signing up and adding their photos, so it’s definitely worth it to come and check it out. And while all the other sites ask you to pay in order to keep your profile online with pictures that belong to you (which is ridiculous), at Bears-Pics we credit you, and the more pictures you add, the more you get. Already there are some guys who have 1000s of credit racked up, simply by sharing their photos.
We have apecial offer which will last until January 1st: sign up and use the code ‘BearMyth’ and instead of starting off with 20 credits, you will start with 100.
Some of you might remember Bear-Pics from 1999 to 2006. It was one of the very first Bear news sites which wrote about anything and everything Bear related. As well, there was a Gallery section in which webmaster Bob Forrest showcased his photography of really cute Bearish men. The site was all HTML, and for its time, it was quite popular.
In 2006, Bob met up with Nikola, a coder who offered his services with the goal to make Bear-Pics more dynamic. However, rather than work on Bear-Pics, they decided to open up a new site, and PlanetBears (http://planetbears.com) was created, while Bear-Pics, the HTML version, closed its digital doors. In late 2009, Bob and Niko decided they wanted to try something different, and after 6 months of coding, they opened up Bear-Pics Version 2010 on March 31st. Since then, there are already 5300+ guys who have created a profile, and they are beginning to realize the unique power and energy that Bear-Pics emits.
Go Fujimoto Calendar Contest
Bear-Pics is running a contest and the prize is a great calendar by the reknown Bear artist Go Fujimoto of JapanimationBears (http://www.japanimationbears.com). All you have to do is create a gallery on Bear-Pics, call it ‘CALENDAR’, add up to 20 photos, and the more pics you add, the better your chances are at winning since winners are chosen randomly (meaning, every photo is put into the pool, so the more photos you have the pool, the better your odds). This contest is not about who is the best looking nor who has the most votes – it’s about simply participating and having fun and hoping you’re lucky enough to win one of these great calendars.
Bear-Pics is giving away 5 calendars, and instead of giving them away all at once, we’re giving one away every few days up until January 1st 2011, so the sooner you add your photos, the more chances again you will have at winning, however you can join in up until the very last day (New Year’s day).
Now a little about Go Fujimoto: he’s a Japanese artist who is reknown around the world for his excellent Bearish drawings. In fact, Go is one of the very first guys who did Bear drawings with his JapanimationBears, and his artwork has definitely shaped and influenced many artists today who draw Bears as well.
Go Fujimoto has been making calendars for quite some time now and they are even considered collector’s items. He took a 3 year hiatus from making them however he is now back and in full form, and this year’s calendar – his 2011 – is equally impressive and will surely be highly sought out. The theme is about Bears connecting with Bears using the latest technology that’s out there right now, and that’s our SmartPhones.
The calendar is desk size (148×100 mm), a total of 14 pages with the prints being in both colour and monochrome.

Sorry about being late with the contest. However, we all win with Bear-Pics and their new and spiffy cool system. And using the code BearMyth, you start out with 100 credits instead of 20!
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…
That beautiful man above is none other than my local city’s beloved rapper, Big B (real name Bryan Mahoney). He has been a staple of the Las Vegas’ music scene and you can see him in a couple of billboard posters in the city. Here’s a couple of him promoting a pool bar called Rehab at the Palms Resorts Casino:
Big B reminds me of a hybrid between Yankees pitcher, Joba Chamberlain, and one of my favorite woofy actor Brian Leckner (will post about this handsome man soon). Unlike those two, Big B is oftentimes shirtless — proudly and comfortably showing his tatooed-filled body. One word can come out of it: HOT. As this is Shirtless Saturday, here are just a few music videos of him where he’s shirtless for most of the time…
He is actually singing with one of my favorite groups, OPM.
My all-time favorite song from Big B, “White Trash Life.”
(The way he’s rapping here, he sounds like Billy Milano.)
The following is not a “shirtless” video, though we get to see Big B in a prison outfit while he recreates for us what his “camel toe” looks like. Much thanks for Big B’s daytime boss, Corey Hart (of Inked fame). Yes, most musicians have a second job just to make ends meet.
And I just have to pimp OPM (been a big fan since their classic Heaven Is A Halfpipe) by posting one of their newest songs (Dirty White). And not only is this a great song, we get to see Big B with a goatee!
Finally, here are more shirtless goodness from the lovely Big B. All of the photos that have been posted here are from his MySpace page.
And, finally, here’s a rebus for ya…
ESPN Brazil had a couple of print ads during the Beijing Olympics displaying some “unique” champion athletes who, despite such extraordinary skills, are considered by the majority to be “not good enough for Beijing.” One of the three ads is my favorite. It had a fictional athlete, and a seriously massively and beefy musclechub, named “Dimitri Ivanov.” He was a “Head Weight Lifting Champion.” Lol. [AdsOfTheWorld]
One year ago, I decided to blog about a large, yet hidden, part of me: my attractions and love for “bearish men.” It was very new to me, because prior to this, I managed a private Yahoo Group that pretty much did the same thing I’m doing now here (and long story short, I abandoned that group because I thought that it was best if I “turned straight” — thank goodness I didn’t go with it).
Over the course of that year, I have met many new and old friends alike. I am very thankful to all of you for browsing through, commenting (both positive and negative), and supporting this blog. I can’t express my gratitude enough for being able to share such passions with like-minded people.
So with that, I’ve decided to drop the “Weblog” as this blog is starting to have a life of its own. Plus, I seem to imply that my name is “BearMythology.” Anyway, I’m not “physically” a bear, though the years seem to be putting some good pounds on me. I’m slowly trying to “come out of the closet” somewhat, so if you have a MySpace page or LiveJournal blog, do add me as your friend. Also, if you have a YouTube page, please add or invite me. I’m not quite “savvy” with all of these social-networking sites since I’m not a very “sociable” person (both online and off).
So, what happened this past year?
My number one bear is still Ray Winstone.
Chris Dowd is one media personality I am unbelievably massively obsessed with.
Heinz Ollesch, Terry Hollands, Leon White, Reese Hoffa, Manuel Martinez, Christian Cantwell, Prince Fielder, Joba Chamberlain, Jeff Saturday, and Kasey Studdard are just but a handful few of my favorite bearish athletes.
I posted about Warren Sapp about 1 post too many… And I will continue to post about this woofy bear!
Strongman and musclechub extraordinaire Phil Martin emailed me and he was super friendly.
Interviewed a fantastically woofy straight pro wrestler, Shane Morbid.
Got involved in some online drama with a strongman’s (Boris Haraldsson) girlfriend which fortunately led to a happy ending.
Recently started doing weekly polls (Two Woofy Tuesday) for which I’m not doing too good in (I’m 0-for-3!).
Having way too much fun on Shirtless Saturday.
I love pro-wrestling way too much as it completes the trifecta of my bear fetishes.
I’m always fascinated/horrified at what the straight guys tend to comment about this blog. Here’s one recent discussion about my J-Rocc posting. (“Popular gay blog”? Lol)
Here’s my most important post ever on the blog: Carl Sagan’s A Pale Blue Dot.
Well, that’s pretty much a small sampling of what happened this past year. Here’s looking forward to Year 2…
