There’s a Bicep

Oh yeah, there’s a bicep:

and a tricep as well as a helluv an extensor. Not even going to mention the deltoid, ’cause, well, it’s covered.

There it is again:

And again:

No, I guess that’s a tricep alone. I can handle it. :D

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a good bout of blatant objectification. Sue me.

And maybe it’s just me, but I actually like the lack of cuts in his arms. It means the strength there is more naturally his and not a pretty boy getting bulked up in the gym. This strength is much more compelling than the well toned, oiled, pecs bigger than most women’s chests kind of guys. It’s also in part why I wrote this post.

Note: new tag ‘bicep’

Woman is always looking for a shoulder to put her head on

[note on Mencken below]

Per tyme4t’s request.

Here’s the best “shoulder” pic I could come up with (great jawline pic too; check out others here). Oh, there are other shoulder pics, but I thought I would just run the best one out there first. At least the one I think is the best. Feel free to disabuse me of the notion. :D


Continuing rationalization:

One of the first things I noticed about RA is his ability to use his shoulders and back to convey a message. Oh, yeah, actors can shrug to convey some emotions, but he goes way beyond that. I lost count of the times Guy used his shoulders with one of the most stunning times being when he flinches as Friar Tuck tries to comfort him (S3Ep1). I can’t watch that scene without being very moved by the grief and pain and just utter self hatred radiating from Guy’s shoulders alone — since we can’t really see his face. Wonderfully done scene!



Note: The quote in the title is from H.L. Mencken’s In Defense of Women. I didn’t like it the first time I read it — a long time ago. Not sure what I would think of it now. I do agree with that particular quote though — to some degree. Most of the women I know (young or old), love it when they actually meet a man. Men are few and far between, and it can be a rush to encounter one. Most women are drawn to that and want to rely on them. Notice I didn’t say male, but that I’m actually referring to someone who is a man — worthy to lean on but not lessening a woman’s worth by being so.
