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’!]
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’!]
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.

One of my favorite pro-wrestling photo blogs is Wrestling Great. There’s not a lot of big guys (at least with my definition of “big” is); but for the ones who do show up are simply “great” to behold. One of my finds is a pro-wrestler who dons a pharaoh costume. Unfortunately, I have no clue as to who he is and I’m begging any wrestling expert out there to provide us with the 411.

Why is this “Super Shirtless Saturday”? Because I will be posting a handful of shirtless pro-wrestlers today and what better way to honor their athleticism and theatrical skills by describing them as “super”?
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’!]
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!!!!!
