Expect ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ this December … plus, DOS EE!

Peter Jackson announces Hobbit 3’s altered title

Forget The Hobbit: Into the Fire; the third film will be renamed The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – states Peter Jackson on his Facebook page, here.

In the mind-blowing statement, Jackson discusses how he and his team arrived at such a significant alteration:

“There and Back Again” felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived “there” in the “Desolation of Smaug … And so: ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ it is.“.Peter Jackson

The news comes straight from the director himself, barely half an hour ago.

Totally unexpected and intriguing.

I personally loved “There and Back Again”, but I understand…

Armitage Visual Fest 8

I don’t often make gifs but here a few favorites of mine.

They aren’t all that, but I remember having a blast (and tearing out my hair with frustration) when making them 🙂

Maybe honing my gif skills should be my summer 2014 resolution?

Armitage Visual Fest 7

One of my favorite manips I’ve made is my Mickey Richard.

It was inspired by pop art and Mr Brainwash’s art like this Spock one:

I didn’t feel a particular need to have Richard done a Marilyn wig, but if you’ve seen Banksy’s film Exit Through the Gift Shop you’ll understand why the studded Disney Mickey Mouse ears 😉

I remember once taking a picture and posting it a while back but as I don’t currently have the image in my RA file, in accordance to Armitage Visual Fest rules, I can’t insert it here 😉

I’m still continuing taking a look at what goodies my RA folder holds.

I think it’s safe to say I have a thing for Richard’s profile.

Don’t get me wrong, I like him from any angle, but there’s something about the nose, chin, ears, all coming together to produce…

Not bad mother nature *gives a round of applause*

Of course profile pictures are not only limited to the face…

I’ll leave that for another day…

Yup, I’m checking it out too…


Don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind a Pina Colada…


Hey there, could you use a good holiday?

Well, pack your string bikini, suntan lotion, Pocket Shrine® and get ready to board the Armitage Airways.


You liked Pina Coladas

and getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean

and the taste of the champagne
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes on the cape
You’re the lady I’ve looked for, come with me and escape…

Unfortunately, I’m not going on an exotic holiday, but I have some exciting new RL stuff going on (not to mention the not so exciting end-of-semester yawn fest ) and I need to focus my energies on doing everything to the best of my abilities.

I know, it’s always a bummer when making a living/having a life infringes on my Armitage admiration time, but what’s a gal to do?

I’ve scheduled a few “favorite pictures” posts to litter the blog while I’m away.

Be good to one another, keep on Richarding and I’ll be back in no time 😉

RAworld Secret Valentine: Love for Agzy

RAworld Secret Valentine: Love for Agzy

Happy RAworld Secret Valentine’s Day!!!
As I go through the cards, vids and letters members of our community of friends have created to celebrate the occasion, to quote Pam from The Office, “I feel god in this Chili’s” 🙂

I absolutely loved my Valentine’s and I’d like to thank my beautiful Valentine for brightening up my day!
Check out all the love here:
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

RAworld Secret Valentine 2014

First of all, a very Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! I hope you guys are having a wonderful day.

And now, to Agzy, who happens to be my  Valentine (fortunately/unfortunately, depending on how she sees it), thanks to the Goddess of Coincidence 😛 Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I’ve been a fan of Agzy’s blog, a big fan. Her funny and brilliant posts never fail to make me smile,  especially when I have bad days. Her’s and a few other blogs are perhaps one of those many ‘feel good’ places I head to when I’m down with the blues. So when I got Guylty’s email, I was really happy at getting an opportunity of expressing the admiration I have for one of my favourite RArmy bloggers!

Agzy is probably the most cheerful RArmy member I’ve ever known. Witty, funny, amazing and with a knack for craft, this is how I would like…

Just a quick note…


Dear Friends,

Things have been a tad shitty as of late, not something I’m ready to write about just yet, but it may mean that I’ll be stepping away from the blog for a while, especially with Christmas preparations and such.

I hope to get an RA Xmas post in, but if I don’t I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and I hope there are more RA goodies than lumps of coal stuffed in your stockings 🙂

Be good, be kind, enjoy each moment with your lived ones, focus on what is important and let the rest melt away like snow!
