Mr Armitage, I like you in your blue jeans, you give me sweet dreams…

Many of you know the particular fondness I have for Richard Armitage and his jeans, especially of the tight (tight I tell you!!) Lucas North variety.

I’ve discussed them and what lies beneath, bounced coins of them, even compared their appeal to Porter combat pants.

Therefore I see it as fate that GizTheGunslinger takes my personal fetish to new heights.

This is one of the most beautiful fanvids I’ve seen in ages.

It’s so stunning, I dare you to watch it just the once!

I haven’t watched a fanvid so many times in a row since discovering Sexy Back 3 which has now become an Armitage Army classic and was even mentioned in the Richard Armitage Glamour UK interview 😉

The images are so powerful they actually make Lana Del Rey sound really good (this is me being bitchy in 2013, to hell with resolutions…).

Looking like that, blue jeans will never go out of style 🙂

Save your $$$ on a Hobbit Ticket. Here’s the next best thing…

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that I already have a ticket to see The Hobbit in Leicester Square London for the 13th of Dec thanks to the kindness of Linda60, and I’ll be seeing it with the wonderful (and, I’m happy to add, now healthy) Judit.

The thing that does shock me is the price of the cinema ticket.

 £20  for a ticket and  £1 for a pair of 3D glasses is a bit steep.

Believe me, I’ll be paying that time and time again during my stay in London, but I will stop complaining about the price of cinema tickets here in my country.

I paid less than $10 for the Twilight marathon ticket, meaning 5 movies.

Back to the topic at hand, TORn has come up with an amazing compilation of the trailers and TV sports, combining them into a wonderful over 7 minute clip.

If you want to save a penny, just watch thins as it’s (roughly) explains the story.

Oh, and you’ll save money on the glasses, so win-win 😉

Who needs a 3D 48-something kerfuffle with so many viewing options it makes you dizzy, when you can simply watch it on YT LOL!

By the way, I saw this cardboard cut-out of Thorin available on ebay:

I know I’ve joked about having one of these in my bedroom, and I’d probably actually keep it if I was given one as a gift, but I’m not sure I’d actually spend anything on one.

My general observation of Hobbit and Thorin products available on ebay is that they are actually much more expensive than anywhere else.

I wonder if they’re these sellers are aiming for people who can’t purchese the products any other way (like the Empire Magazines).

Anyway, before you actually bid on something, it’s good to shop around and see what other sites have up for grabs.

Richard Armitage Fanvid Appreciation!

We’ve been so preoccupied of late with The Hobbit and Black Sky that I think we’re forgetting the other beloved Richard Armitage characters.

One of the best ways to get your fix are fanvids.

I admire all the hard work put into creating a stunning vid.

I don’t think I’d even know where to start, but my time will come.

Another thing that I adore about fanvids is that I’m introduced to songs that I hadn’t heard of, or tunes that were neutral to me become my favorite.

A great example is Fix You by Coldplay, featured in Heather’s vid.

I think it fits Lucas North’s story perfectly.

I also adore SexyBack by Justin Timberlake thanks to the likes of Guy and John P and M.

I dare you to hear this song on the radio and not see John Porter bare-chested, glistening in the hot sun 😉

I’d like to see your favorite video created by a fan, especially one with a song that you may not have heard before, but enjoy now.

Please link in comments and I will be updating the post to feature your favorite fanvid and, if you like, you can add a few words why you chose it!

Share your favorite vid with other admirers!

In some cases your comment may go to spam because of the link, not to worry though, I’ll be fishing them out as often as I can!

KathrynRuthD suggests:

My favourites are pretty much all the Lucas vids made by JulietD001…she is, in my opinion, one of the very best video editors, always finding the perfect music that fits Lucas’ troubled soul so well. These are a few of my absolute favourites – I should warn you that In Pieces is hard to watch:

Spirit Choke (music is Choke by Hybrid)

The Water (music is The Water by Hurts)

Everytime I hear Britney Spears’s “Womanizer” I think of Heather’s video.

The first time I saw it, I had only seen Richard in N&S & RH so this made me want to see all the other shows she features in it. :)

A few weeks ago, I heard “Sexy Back” and my mind flew to Nat’s Stick-Figure Richard version:

You can watch Ania’s favorite fanvids directly in comments, the smart girl!
