Kevin Michael Richardson: The Bear With The Deep Bass Voice

October 27, 2010 2 comments

I shared a clip of Cleveland Jr.’s rap battle with Kanye West from my Tumblr page, which then led me to the making of said rap battle in this video:

And the rest was history.  I discovered Mr. Kevin Michael Richardson and he’s definitely dreamy (at a quick glance, I thought he was James Monroe Iglehart).  And what caught my attention was his unbelievably sexy deep bass voice.  Check him out singing from the canceled show, “The Knights Of Prosperity” (I probably would have watched if I had known that he was in it):


His character’s name was Rockefeller Butts.

And check out his Wikipedia’s description of his work.  As an animation/gaming geek, this blurb is quite orgasmic:

Richardson has usually portrayed villainous characters due to his deep voice.

His credits include Captain Gantu from Lilo & Stitch, Goro in Mortal Kombat, the second voice of Skulker on Danny Phantom, Sarevok in the Baldur’s Gate series, Jolee Bindo in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Crunch Bandicoot in two of the Crash Bandicoot games, Tartarus from Halo 2, The Joker in The Batman, Ultimate Supreme Executive Chairman Drek in Ratchet & Clank, Antauri in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, Openly Gator from Queer Duck, Barney Rubblefrom modern-day animated series and movies based upon The Flintstones, Maurice the Aye-Aye from The Penguins of Madagascar, the unbeatable guardian of the time portal in Samurai Jack, and the voice of Exile in the late ’90s cartoon Road Rovers.

He often plays characters based on and satirizing comedian Bill Cosby, such as on Family Guy (with the voice of Jerome in the 7th episode of the 8th season) and The Boondocks. He also voices Cleveland Brown, Jr. and Lester Krinklesac in The Cleveland Show.

Finally, here are more woofy photos of Kevin Michael Richardson:

The Case Against The Increased Exposure Of Armpits In The NFL

October 22, 2010 5 comments

The NFL is currently in a sticky bind trying to create a balanced and fair “harsh penalty” for players who would flagrantly hit and intentionally harm other players [ESPN].  I have been following this news and it basically resembles any workplace where management has no clue whatsoever what their employees would go through in their respective jobs.  A frustrated defensive player who is being forced to make a split-second decision about the safety of his opponent is no different from any corporate America employee being told by management what to do when they haven’t even experienced their employees’ jobs firsthand at all.

In short, a sure-fire way to have a disgruntled employee is to make his or her job difficult.  That’s pretty much the case with any human interactions, whether it be in sports, work, school, and, well, anything else.

However interesting that may be (lol), I am far more concerned with a much sinister and heinous argument that just might bring the NFL to even lower depths: people complaining about the increased exposure of armpits on the football field!

Stephen Peterman

Paul Lukas has a hilarious commentary in his “Uni Watch” segment in ESPN.com called “Simply stated, these jerseys are the pits”:

Of course, being an Armpit Aficionado I am completely against his rally cry against the increased exposure of armpits in the NFL.  To combat this, I will selectively choose some of Mr. Lukas’ points so that I could easily contradict him.

Let us begin our battle of “pits,” shall we?

But some players have been pushing the sleeveless style past the limits of visual propriety. For years, the poster child for this look has been Chris Hovan, who’s basically had his jersey tailored like a tank top, revealing more of his body than Uni Watch (or, most likely, anyone) wants to see.

Au contraire, Pepe Le Pew.  The NFL is stacked to the brim with magnificent and imposing behemoths whose muscular and stocky builds are completely encumbered by needless jerseys, shoulder pads, and helmets.  These men are our living mythical giants who, on any given Sunday, push their strengths and endurance to the limits for our entertainment.  They are the wonders of our modern age, gladiators of a brutal sport, and the glue that binds people together as well as a polarizer of cities & communities.  That being said, it would be totally awesome if football players were just shirtless.  So, yes, there are people out there who actually respect and admire the human form.  If a football player like Chris Hovan tailors his jersey like a tanktop, then that’s just a bonus for us fans and non-fans alike.  Yes, there are people out there who appreciate Hovan’s armpits.  As much as you probably enjoy watching the Lingerie Football League.

3. Ixnay on the exflay. Tired of the recent trend of players flexing like bodybuilders? That’s yet another byproduct of the faux sleeves. Wouldn’t be happening if the players’ upper arms were covered.

Seriously?  Your number 3 reason for banning exposed armpits is because it would cause more football players to flex their muscles?  And let’s just say that it’s true that all men in the world who wear sleeveless shirts severely suffer from Acute-Muscle-Flexing-Syndrome-Because-I’m-Wearing-A-Wifebeater, then what exactly is wrong with that?  Men, especially men of the bigger variety, have the right to be proud of their bodies and strength.  Of course there is a time and place to do so, in regards to sportsmanship versus showmanship, but please don’t blame the sleeveless jersey for causing men’s inherent desire to display their Alpha Maleness.

Okay.  Now that I have conveniently avoided responding to Mr. Lukas’ finer & compelling points, let me pleasantly end my needless rant with a cavalcade of photos of Chris Hovan’s magnificent and spectacular armpits…

And to end on a finer rose-scented note, here is the Hovan family…  Wow.  I just love this image.

Josh Gad: Jack Black & Jonah Hill’s Spawn

October 19, 2010 3 comments

Does actor Josh Gad look like Jack Black with Jonah Hill’s girth and curly hair?  You be the judge as Josh Gad briefly impersonates the two actors (with artistic liberties) as a correspondent for The Daily Show in Comedy Central:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I first noticed him from Season 2, Episode 2 of Showtime’s Bored To Death.   And with the following image, it’s going to be very self-evident why I immediately fell in lust with this big and cute cuddly chubby bear…

Finally, check out his Funny Or Die comedy skit as “Jose Sanchez: Workout Guru”…  He appears to have a propensity for revealing his armpits as much as possible.  And I totally do not have any issues with that.  😉

Kristen Wiig Licks Zach Galifianakis’ Beard

October 18, 2010 2 comments

When I was watching the latest episode of Showtime’s Bored To Death, I was pleasantly treated to a shirtless Zach Galifianakis getting his beard licked on by a drunken Kristen Wiig (love that gal) as she playfully tugs on the fur on his nipples while scraping off a stuck hair on her tongue.  Seriously, descriptions won’t do it justice…

Stay tuned for more dashing bears from Season 2 of Bored To Death.

Joey Oglesby: “The Ballad Of Ted & Tad”

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment

Going through my archives, I realized that I have quite a handful of posts about the ever adorable Mr. Joey Oglesby.  He has a new web series called “The Ballad Of Ted & Tad.”  I’ve seen it, downloaded it, and watched it countless of times.  Others might feel offended by the conceit of the joke, but this is exactly what I come to expect from someone who sung a catchy song about a gay-hating God.  Check it out folks…

I can’t wait to watch further installments of this online series.  In the meantime here are screenshots of Joey from the video.  If I may add some constructive criticism: thank you for wearing a tanktop.  A big thumbs up from me, for sure…  😉

Pablo Sandoval: “Kung-Fu Panda”

October 16, 2010 1 comment

Pablo Sandoval is a baseball player for the San Francisco Giants who has quite an apt nickname of “Kung-Fu Panda” (or “Pandoval”).  He got this nickname for being a speedy husky athlete.  Tonight is the National League Playoffs between the Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies.  Unfortunately, Pablo is benched for tonight’s game and I’m not sure if he’s playing through the rest of the playoffs.

Here’s an adorable video of Pablo being interviewed by FOX’s Chris Rose:

Okay, I just could not resist posting this...

Okay, before you guys and gals get mad at me for posting that animated gif, I just have this ridiculous fascination with people tripping.  Karma has rained down her vengeance upon me because I now have weak legs.  Serves me right, I suppose.  Still, I can’t stop laughing at the cuteness of the Kung-Fu Panda tripping — plus, seeing his thick body in full-speed action before the fall is worth the price of admission…  😛

Pablo Sandoval bear hugs Andres Torres... DAAAWWWW!

But, seriously, here are more photos of the handsome Pablo Sandoval…

And, finally, I really have no other thoughts about these final two photos…  😛

And, after all that, I must inject some personal opinion to end this: GO PHILLIES! (and I’m a Yankees fan)…  😉

Mick Foley Is Will Phillips’ Bodyguard

Chubarama posted this video and I just have to copy it here: it’s the most awesome Jon Stewart’s “Gaywatch” segment in The Daily Show, and one of them is about my hero, Will Phillips.  You just have to watch it.  (And a big LOL at Jon’s comment at the “What is a ‘gaywad’?” question.)
