Richard, you drive us crazy!

FanstRA4 Banner pink

Have you ever been curious about what it’s like to be a blogger, especially an Armitage one?

Let me tell you this- it’s so luxurious and exclusive we put the Dynasty Carrington’s to shame ūüėČ

Nope, not a whiff of desperation.

Oh, the lifestyle of the rich, famous and blogging…

Earlier today, at the eleventh hour:

Me: Oh bloody hell, I need a FanstRA4 post for tomorrow and I’ve got nothing. Any ideas?

Magzy: Eeerrrr I had an idea a while ago…

*I wait..and wait….nope, that’s the end of THAT discussion…the sound of the clock clicking is defening*

A few hours later…

Me: So, about that fab idea you had and I really need…

Magzy: Eeerrrr…. just do some a post “Richard as something…”. Ya know, like last year’s Richard characters as dogs

What about… eerrr…..Richard and cars…

*I snort, rolls my eyes, prepare to go to¬†war about how stupid the idea was… but hold up… hold on one damn minute…this could works….yeeeessss…. this could work..kinda….*

Richard Armitage, you drive me round the bend!

I mean seriously, you need to give us all a break from your smoking hotness!

You drive us all crazy, so¬†here’s a crash course on¬†what cars different RA characters drive.

The car stopped with a jerk, then the  jerk got out.

Our dear Grizzly Gizzy is a bit dangerous, therefore I can see him in a Hennessey Viper Venom 700NM.

I’m not saying Guy has self-esteem¬†issues, but he’d definitely be¬†driving an expensive stolen sports car.

Based on his behaviour many would rather see him in a Mazda LaPuta or Mitsubishi Pajero¬†(a little Spanish joke there…).

Anyway, everyone’s fuming over the high cost of gas, but not to worry as Guy¬†has the¬†poor villagers running on fumes¬†to keep that tank filled up.

Guy Viper

Our favorite bookworm Harry Kennedy definitely wormed his way into our hearts.

It just isn’t fair how¬†he fueled our fangirling¬†imagination and he wins hands down.

With his John le Carr√©¬†books and maths skills, he’s quite¬†a Smart one.

At first he¬†couldn’t figure out how to fasten¬†his seatbelt, but then it clicked.

Harry Smart

Many artists tend to be tanked most of the time, and Claude Monet would support his fellow painter and drive a Citro√ęn Picasso.

Richard’s wig hardly revved¬†our engines, but the part was an auto-matic hit with the fans.

It’s hard enough to maneuver the art world and stay in the race, but it’s easy to brush it aside when you travel in comfort.

Thorin Oakenshield, we’re all in this Armitage Admiration for the long haul.

Riding that pony¬†such a long way¬†must be¬†taking its toll and you must be running on fumes (I still don’t get why the eagles could just drop you off closer to your destination).

Anyway, I’d like to offer you a more comfortable, not to mention worthy of a king, ¬†alternative meaning this Mustang.

This is the only horse power you need to get to where you’re going!

Just remember not to speed in the frozen areas because the Middle Earth police will stop you cold.

Drivers in a rush who stop at traffic lights often see red, but no such worries for our dear fast and furious¬†John Porter as he’d roll alone along a desert road (apart from a few planes, tanks, terrorists, bombs¬†and such).

That’s why I think he’d definitely need a Renault Duster with its own swanky protective scarf and sunglasses.

Also, the car manual stipulates the driver must be shirtless while operating¬†this machine, dunno why, possible something to do with the gear shift…

ATTENTION : Loose Nut behind the Wheel!

HONK… If You Want To See My Finger!

CAUTION: I drive like you do !

HONK if you Admire Armitage!!!

It’s a Dog Eat Dog World, Richard Armitage

Happy FanstRA 3!

We‚Äôre in Day Three of the FanstRAvaganza 3 in The Freeform¬†tagteam chain! If you missed Day Two, check out the posts at Melanie’s Musings, An Obsessed Fanatic and¬† Do I Have a Blog?

Also in Day Two, see my partner’s post at A is for Armitage  and Funky Blue Dandelion

It really is a Dog Eat Dog World, or as Britney Spears would say to her dogs: It’s Richard Armitage, b*tch!

As a dog lover, I can’t help but notice how much humans tend to resemble their dogs.

So with hardly¬†a moments¬†paws…

Take Guy of Gisborne, from Robin Hood

The fierce rottweiler-like¬†henchman of the Sheriff is¬†loyal but deadly. Whether he was really a good man, that’s a matter to chew over…

Because of that evil Vasey, poor Gizzy felt like he was going round in circles, chasing his own tail.

Then again, every time an evil plan was hatched, Guy was all ears.

He followed at the Sheriff’s heel and that always ended badly.

Yes, Gizzy has done plenty of bad things, but afterward at least he didn’t try to flea.

Perhaps Guy is like a mixed breed dog, half Lab, half pit bull.

¬†Sure, he might bite off¬†your leg, but he’ll bring it right back to you.

Then we have the spy extraordinaire, the international man of mystery and mischief, Lucas North from Spooks.

He is one mean, lean, London saving machine!

I bet¬†he makes you hot under the collar…

With his strong frame and long muscular legs, he reminds me of a pedigree Doberman.

Of course in season 9 it all went to the dogs.

I guess RA fans have quite a bone to pick with the writers of Spooks.

But, as I said to my friend Russel: It don’t mean jack! We still love Lucas!

Then again, from a certain angle…ermm… he resembles a different breed altogether…

Then there’s poor John Standring¬†of Sparkhouse, bless him!

As this was the first high-profile role for RA, it probably gave him a new leash on life…

As a farmer, he’s good at handling farm animals, much like a sheep herding dog.

Anyway, with Carol’s mood swings, poor John often ended up in the doghouse.

Now that¬†was ruff…

John tried to reason with her, but he just wasn’t herd.

I often wish John would stand on his own four legs!

What does Carol expect? That he’ll wag his tail every time he sees her?

But for poor John life is like a dogsled team. If you aren’t the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

Next up is the unappreciated Claude Monet, dogged by all the art critics.

 That really ticked him off!

No wonder he was so melon collie in The Impressionists!

Poor Richard had questionable facial hair and dodgy wig in this one, much like a chinese nude dog.

Nevermind, I still find him quite fetching…

Then there’s John Thornton from North & South.

He sure marked new territories in the textile manufacturing world of Milton.

I mean, his position in the North is nothing to bark at, he was a mastiff success…

Must have been thanks to the Lassie faire economy.

Maybe instead of a cotton factory, he should have had a chocolate lab.

By the time the strike had finished, it had all gone to the dogs.

Luckily, Margaret could retrieve it all.

Dear Thorin, The Hobbit hasn’t yet hit the screens, but I have a feeling you will be this woman’s best friend!

You have kept Richard away for a long time, but I’m not sniffing at that.

There’s no point in b*tching about you being away filming for the past year.

We love you anyway and where you lead, we follow!

Let’s not beat around the bush, the movie’s going to be¬†a great dane.

And if Richard Armitage was a dog, I’d treat him just like my two Yorkshire Terrier puppies, Emma and Mela.

I ‘d love it when he slept in my bed, even if he took up most of it.

¬†I’d let him lay on my lap for hours and stroke him.

¬†I’d let him lick my face to show how much he loves me.

I’d¬†forgive for any naughtiness the moment I laid¬†eyes on that beautiful (not pug) face.

I’d¬†bundle him up warm¬†when it’s cold and hate to force him to pee outside when it’s frosty…

And for all the awful K-9 puns, I beg your Paw-don…

Feel free to raise your leg in¬†salute¬†to how doggone¬†ridiculous they are ūüėČ

Guy of Gisborne vs.Claude Monet

The DVD box sets I ordered a while back have finally arrived! It took a while because I really wanted the British editions (they tend to have more special features and English subtitles).

I ordered North&South, as my copy didn’t have the interview and commentary, but I shall put that aside for now (fear not, your time will come, Mr.¬†Thornton)

The big question is, what should I start with?

This is the battle between:

Robin Hood

and

The Impressionists

I have to admit I have not seen either one, therefore this is unchartered territory for me. That hat makes me very happy, discovering RA’s work is like a gift that keeps on giving.

On the one hand I would love to see what all the hoopla regarding Guy of Gisborne is all about.

 I have a feeling the following has something to do with it:

Oh, and this…

On the other hand I do love biographies, the Impressionists painters, Monet in particular.

Oh, and then there’s this…

Decisions, decisions…

That is why I¬†shall scry using¬†my crystal ball¬†and see what comes up ūüėČ
