My stint on World's Strongest Man ended yesterday, and I have to say, its become a favorite summer edit gig. Most of the strongmen have that Thanos physique, no CGI needed, but instead of eliminating half of all life in the universe, these genial dudes want to lift heavy shit and chill with their girlfriends. Halfthor Bjornsson, the Icelandic beast who plays The Mountain on Game of Thrones, won this year and his post awards interview is pure geek manna. Will post after it airs.
The only downside is the event tends to be hosted by fascist run countries, last year Botswana and this year the Philippines, because a carnival of oiled up Tom of Finland man-children reveling in acts of brute strength is irresistible propaganda for right wing tough guy wannabes.
What can I say, educating the youngsters ain't cheap.
