Are you familiar with oil heiress Jason Gummi Bear Davis? He's really only known because he's the brother of Brandon Greasy Bear Davis, the fire crotch rant guy. Jason is often denied entry to nightclubs.
I recently went to a showcase design house in Pasadena, CA. The theme of the whole house was Hollywood Glamour. In one of the rooms was this poster for Audrey Hepburn's musical Funny Face. When I saw that print I immediately thought of the Jason Davis. Can't explain why. I just did. Maybe I knew he'd look fantastic in that same cat suit that Audrey's wearing? Clearly he does. And I also believe he represents Hollywood Glamour quite well.
I think he and his gummi bearness should be celebrated some more. Here goes an extra helping.........................................

And now for some Brandon Davis Pride
I went to the Gay Pride parade in Los Angeles this past weekend. I am always amazed at the body confidence of some people. To be able to walk down Santa Monica Blvd in your underwear in broad day light is something I just can't imagine doing. Maybe that's why I'm so drawn to it. I always have fun seeing all the different shapes and characters that are so proudly on display. Love it.
Now in the gay community, a bear is a term used to refer to a mature man with a lot of body hair. Perhaps a Hugh Jackman would fit that description? What I wasn't aware of though was a new and quite disturbing subculture of people who have a fetish for Brandon Greasy Bear Davis. They are known as the greasy bears. Apparently this image of Brandon caught mid sneeze cough was so alluring that it spawned with subset. The greasy bear lovers wear a cut out mask of their hero in part to show their love and admiration but also to hide from public scorn. I give you the greasy bears.....................
