The Müscleheaded Blog

Welcome to the new home of the Müscleheaded Blog.

My name is Chris, and I’m a mature, married, Southern power-lifter who likes to hear himself write.

I’m a veteran of the U.S. Navy, a graduate of the Brown Institute, and until recently competed in Masters Strongman, although I still train hard and heavy.

Snarky humor, vintage pinups, and weirdos in the news are just a few of the things I like ……

And I’ve been known to sneak all kinds of things in this here blog.

You really never know what’s gonna be showing up next.

So, my advice would be to subscribe, and try to visit right-regular like.

My blog theme is called ‘Dusk to Dawn’, and it’s kinda appropriate, since I’m usually here in the late evening/early morning EST.

a1It’s also rather androcentric and iconoclastic—

so, if you offend easily, can’t stand sexual references, or if you just hate men,

please take a raincheck on the follow, with no hard feelings.

I don’t consider masculinity a ‘persona’ or a ‘put on’….

— it’s simply how men are, and should be.

If you don’t like the way I express that,
well, that’s tough.
See ya.

How you read my posts, whether you want to take them at face value, or whether you want to look harder, well, I leave that up to you.

Art, if that’s what it is, always means something different to the viewer than the creator… so, don’t let that worry you none.

A lot of the art featured on the Muscleheaded Blog is vintage —

I like to collect postcards and published ephemera from the early 1900’s in particular….

….. and you’ll see a lot of my collection here.

If you want to know more about the Muscleheaded Blog,
you can read my post:  ” Just What The Hell Is It All About Anyway?

You can also visit my online gym, which features articles about fitness, strength, and gym culture–
at .

I love motorcycles–
my most popular post, on British Motorcycles, is here.

I also like to write about travel…
like: ” The Beaches of St. John, USVI

Do you like vintage pin ups?
Well, we have an awful lot of posts on that subject to choose from,
but you can start here: ” The Pin Up Art of Gil Elvgren ” —

or– ” The Sensual Art of Raphael Kirchner ” .

( There’s an index on that post that will lead you to a lot of other posts about Pin Up Artists, too. )

You can read what I like to call my best general art blogs:
The Art of Maxfield Parrish
“The Poster Art of Leonetto Cappiello” .

You could read one of my humor blogs like:
“Weirdly Radioactive “,
Misogyny and You
“Lily Munster Was Hot ”


I’m thinking one of those posts might let you know what you’re really letting yourself in for.

lossecannonA loose cannon?

    What? Pin ups? I’m triggered. That’s a micro aggression or maybe even a macro aggression. Where’s the safe space around here? I need hot chocolate and crayons….

    I was just talking to my son about a story we ran across about a year ago. A scientist had come up with a significant breakthrough in his field and he had a press conference because people were interested his discovery. It was a big deal. Well, he wore a nice “Hawaiian” style shirt with pin ups on it (that happened to have been given to him by a female friend). Some witch had such a fit and pestered him mercilessly…she actually made him cry. Now, I wish I’d been there to counteract that and he shouldn’t have cried but can you imagine? She ruined his moment in the sun and instead of talking about the exciting, helpful-to-mankind discovery he spent the whole time trying to defend himself. What a world….

    Anyway, I’m delighted to have run into you (with GPCOX’s help). I’m a new follower. Looking forward to reading your posts!

    • Likewise ! I’m always getting nasty emails about how pin-ups are ‘damaging’ to women … that view appeals to a certain limited intellect, and I usually just blow it off without comment. I imagine you’ll be getting those too… Head Up- Beauty and Charm will NEVER go out of style ! I’m looking forward to catching up on your blog as well — thanks for your kind comment !!!!! 🙂 🙂

    Hi Muscles, like the new set up here! There’s some raving man-haters out there for sure! What’s up with that? That is a fine bike you have, we have and Electraglide and riding is our addiction. Have fun out there, ride safe.

  8. Paloma says:

    Great smile 😀

  9. Heartafire says:

    That’s a fine bike. We have an Electraglide. Hope to get out there today.

  10. Hello Musclehead 🙂
    I’m speechless because I think I’ve never met anybody like you.
    If my soul is leading me well, I guess you must be a very funny man with convictions and who know who he is.
    Well, I don’t really know if writing you this will lead to somewhere, but I try.
    I’m an artist, with a project. A crazy project, and I’m trying to find people who might be interested in it. If you have a minute, go and check my page. And if you don’t like it, I’m sorry for bothering you…
    Take care,

  11. That last photo of you, on the chopper — love it. What an enchanting smile. 😀 Nice to meet you, Muscley x

    Love it. Certainly made me laugh, and I totally love the bike, its quite a beast. Thankyou for your continuing support on both my blogs. I just realised that i have been very naughty and not reciprocated by following your blog too, which of course once I realised my over sight I rectified straight away.

    Okay, I’ve spent entirely too much time on your blog today and have further put into jeopardy my procrastination list… thanks. Now I have to follow you and read your posts and repeatedly blow off other, more important things, like working… or writing… or drinking!

    And to think – I thought you were just kidding about the “rub here” remark!! 🙄
