BOOM! POW! BOOM! That’s pretty much the only way I could verbalize my instant thoughts when I first saw this Australian weightlifter. His name is Damon Kelly and when I quickly did some thorough research (lol), I noticed that for a weightlifter, he’s quite stylish, to the point that I might even call him a “hipster” (or “bipster” for “bear hipster”). Let me lay out the evidence, and you be the judge… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Here’s an old-school Shirtless Saturday post. Phil Hickerson is a wrestler I discovered a few years ago thanks to the classic pro-wrestling matches shown on ESPN. I missed out on his younger and furrier persona, so I just knew him as his villainous Japanese counterpart, PY Chu Hi. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
Commercials are, more or less, fairly effective. They are visual invasions and auditory assaults to the senses which can do their manipulative job in less than 30 seconds. When I first saw the “Sword” Trident Layers Gum commercial, the ad did its spectacular magic on me as the cute cub in it caught my attention in less than 3 seconds. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]
The Edgerton Brothers’ “The Square” (Official Site) is one of my favorite films this year. I’m not even sure if it was released in the US cinemas (as this was released on 2008), but I recently caught it on DVD and it’s spectacular filmmaking at its finest. In a few words: “Australian film-noir set in the 1980s.” And you know what? It all worked fantastically. As a lover of film-noir, the Edgerton Brothers did a superb job in creating a malicious world in a small Australian town.
With my fan-gushing out of the way, the film also starred a handsome actor that made my viewing even better: Anthony Hayes. He’s a bit “smaller” for my tastes but his face, beard, furry chest, husky build, and — OMG! — that mullet! The Mullet was a character of its own and I loved it.
And on to the good stuff. It’s Shirtless Saturday, so here is the woofy Anthony Hayes in all of his shirtless and mulleted glory…
It was also pretty awesome as the camera just randomly panned down to focus on his wonderfully small underwear… 😛
Then as the camera shifted its focus to Danny McBride, this deliciously woofy bear stood up then stretched his marvelous gut…
As he high fives the rest of his naked and sweaty teammates, I also offer a big high five to all of you guys to these awesome shots as well!
And, of course, let’s not forget the star of this show, Danny McBride:
Rick Zumwalt’s character “Bull Hurley” has been a major factor and influence in my realization that I was attracted towards big and burly men. His larger-than-life portrayal of a very intimidating and powerful arm wrestler is forever embedded in my memory: the red tanktop, the bald head, the thick & sweaty biceps, the perfect goatee, and his aggressively cocky demeanor were the physical features and personality traits that fueled my imagination and “sexual awakening,” if you will.
Well, today, I’d like to introduce to you Mr. Radu “Valahu” Georgescu or as I’d like to think of him as The Romanian Bull Hurley Version 2.0. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Rick Zumwalt may not be physically in this world anymore, but there will be people (from past, present, and future) who will always possess such amazingly similar traits. Radu may not be bald nor possess a goatee, but what a trade-off with that spectacular beard! Jury’s still out with the bandanas though…
Those screenshots from the collage were taken from this YouTube video:
And speaking of my coincidental Bull Hurley comparison, here is Hurley wearing a yellow tanktop and Radu wearing a yellow shirt! OMG like that is so true!

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.
