Fess up your mancrushes and bromantic fantasies

Mancrush: A hetrosexual man admiring another man to an extreme in a non-romantic or sexual way, more having an intense desire to be that other man.

Bromance: The intense love shared between heterosexual males. A form of male bonding and usually invisible to the naked eye. This bond is normally only shared between two males that have a deeper understanding of each other, in a way no woman could ever realize.


–Urban Dictionary


Okay fess up, guys.

This isn't about sex appeal or charisma; this is about "I want to be this guy's BFF" or "I want to be that guy."





Thom Yorke, leadman for Radiohead

Not only is he the vocalist and principal songwriter of my favourite band, he's also politically and socially active.

I'm not too sure what he's like in person, but my perception of him is that of a pensive artist oozing a humble sort of cool.

Robert Rodriguez. Not only does he make movies that I love, he's also bumped uglies with Rose McGowan.

Curiously, I don't feel the same kindred spirit with Marilyn Manson.

Are we allowed to name dead people? If so, Alexander the Great, day ruiner.

Man.

I'll stick with living people.

Sorry, too lazy to post pictures. Off the top of my head:
Actors:
Sean Connery
The guy who played 'Spike' on Buffy
James Spader

Politicians:
Barack Obama (I'm not a fanboy, and think he's a very flawed president, but there are several things I admire about him)

Oh. And number one: Mr. Rodgers. No, I'm not kidding.

How funny. I've always wanted to have a cigarette with Iggy Pop.

I'd say that I want to have a bromance with baraka_guru, but I'd have to steal him away from aberkok first.

Nathan Fillion. Man's got sass.
Neil Patrick Harris. Incredible talent, great physical presence.
Samuel L. Jackson. Do I really need any explanation for that one?
Laurence Fishburne. What a magnificent beast he is! Ungodly talented.
Kenneth Branagh. Just for Henry V.
Liam Neeson. Like the accent. Very talented. And have you seen this guy's hands? They're fucking huge! He must have to walk funny so he doesn't trip over his enormous penis.
Nicholas Brendon (Xander from Buffy). Just because!
Seth Green. He is ridiculously funny.
Jon Stewart. My secular Jewish idol!
Rabbi Aaron Alexander. My non-secular Jewish idol!

I was going to say Eddie Vedder, because Pearl Jam is awesome, but I don't know that I'd want to be him. I am pretty sure he's going to explode at some point. Not in a fit of rage. Just spontaneous combustion. He's that intense.

Les Claypool, I couldn't give a damn about the bass playing I just want to get away with dressing like him in public.

In all seriousness, this guy:





Sure he had a tendency to lose his temper and stab his band mates, voilently chase them off stage or put his foot through a priceless instrument because a waitress was clinking glasses too loudly at a concert. But MY GOD, what a bad ass!

I'd like to meet the Jesus that walked the earth and see what all the fuss was about. not because I'm religious but because I'd like to see, for myself, what the big deal is/was. Also I would love to have a conversation with the dalai lama.

but for my bromantic asexual manlove devotee, I'd have to go with a good friend of mine named PT - just b/c he lives his life in a way that, if I were to have planned mine out in advance, I would have liked to live mine.

I, being female, cannot have a mancrush, but my SO has a pretty heavy mancrush for one man in particular.



Don Pettit graduated from our university with a B.S. in chemical engineering, received his Ph.D in chemical engineering from the University of Arizona, and went on to become a staff scientist at Los Alamos before becoming an astronaut.

Astronaut Bio: Don Pettit (12/2008)

He's an all-around talented guy: he invented a coffee cup that works in zero-g (SPACE.com -- Astronaut Invents Zero-G Coffee Cup) and he wrote a lovely poem for the Class of 2010's Commencement Address (Pettit uses verse to address OSU graduates)
