Armitage Visual Feast 1

While I’m away, I shall be posting my favorite Armitage pictures.

I’ll stick to what I have in my folder on my laptop as there’s a reason why I held on to them.

I’ll start with a no-brainer

I love this Glamour UK photoshoot.

It’s so chic and very NY.

00110 I adore the styling and the hairstyle gives me heart palpitations.

Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 3

Armitage 3

This round-up will be a little on the lean side.

I’ve had a tough week and I’m hoping that you will educate my ignorant arse as to the comings and goings of Mr A this week by adding links I’ve missed in comments 😉

Arkentone has swept like a literature eagle to come up with the most tempting fanfiction reads of the week.

I have been reading fanfiction on Dreamer Fiction and I highly recommend it.

It seems that it’s this week (of all weeks….) Richard got his thespian on in NY.

Here are links to posts that are connected with the event:

The event name should have been changed from Pinter/Proust to Me/Jealous, but reading Perry’s account made it much better.

On how Richard is a heart thief! (tumblr)

And EVEN MORE stealing! I’m starting to see a pattern, Richard!

Marie has the Armitage blues 😦

I’d imagine sitting on Richard’s lap must be the best seat in the house!

Thoughts on “On Stage” Richard

How about some beautiful pics of “Stage Door” Richard?

Some lovely Armitage/event pics courtesy of Russian Armitage Fans

More beautiful shots of our precious…

And THE BEST picture I’ve seen: Z and Richard make a dashing pair!

All together now:

K-I-S-S-I-N-G!!!!

Here are general Armitage/Hobbit/OT posts:

Will Smaug get its claws on any more gold (maybe in the shape of a little metallic man)?

Like I need ANOTHER Armitage daydream to contemplate!!

All signs point to a possible visit from Richard (at least that’s what Obscura thinks…)

Jazz marks the day when A03 (a fanfiction site) is the best source of reliable news

More on Proust… kinda…

I though A is for Armitage!

Thou shall be smouldering hot! and other commandments

I’ve always said Richard is a tall glass of water 😉

Serv unearths this interesting piece on how Chinese women can’t get enough of slash… welcome on board ladies!

Richard and apples (ps. did I mention Richard’s mum looks eerily just like mine…)

Maria Grazia interviews photographer to the stars

Richard can converse with me whichever way he likes!

The stages of Armitage Fever (aspirin doesn’t help…)

The passing of the man who created the hilarious character of Owen in The Vicar Of Dibley made me very sad 😦

Spread the love 1 Richard Armitage

We are still spReAding the love!

Don’t forget to note your act of kindness to ensure we snag the whole 200 GBP for Richard’s JustGiving charities!

No Golden Oldies this week, but I’ll be back next week with a double dose, OK?

Don’t forget to check out the fanfiction round-up by Arkie and Guylty’s Tumblr best.

See you next week 🙂

The Morning After, The Walk of Shame

Thorin_fire

This is the morning after The Hobbit live fan event and I’m experiencing a slight hangover.

First of all, I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I usually shy away from the frenzy, but this time I managed to embrace it and share it with others from our humble fandom.

I think I was a little too enthused as I feel a tad like I’ve been partying hard with a group of dwarves 😉

The internet connection was exemplary (although I did have backup, just in case) and the feed was perfect.

My only complaint isn’t that there wasn’t enough Richard (duh! is there ever?) but that it ended so abruptly.

As I said on Twitter, it felt like my invite was revoked just as the party was in full swing.

Turns out, just as our feed broke, the actors also exited, which is a crying shame as I wished our RA friends would get more juicy RA details.

The highlights were Richard answering the only question he was asked.

Here’s an impromptu pic I made before I forced myself to get some shut-eye:

RichardArmitageNY.jpg

I really like Evangeline Lily, who no doubt is aware that some Hobbit fans are giving her evils (No hatin! she said), Lee Pace strutting his elvish stuff and the juicy additional The Hobbit: DOS clips.

*puts Sherlock dear stalker hat on*I wanted to take this opportunity to try to deduce a little something about what Richard has been up to.

tumblr_mvrgkuiCnT1r99ka1o1_500

The long curls are still in tact, he also seems to be growing a beard.

The thing that struck me was how slender he looked.

Not quite Spooks Lucas North season 7, but I think it’s safe to say that Richard isn’t preparing to shoot an action movie.

The question is, does this slimmer frame mean he’s actually auditioning/preparing/shooting something or is it just the strain of shooting three films back to back, relocating to NY?

Does he perhaps miss English food and his mother’s cooking?

I wish he’d make it easier to deduce by, I don’t know, having a script sticking out from his (gorgeous) leather coat pocket or accidentally spilling the beans by using another character’s name instead of Thorin.

As always. Richard knows what’s going on, but he’s not telling!

We’ll get you next time though, Mr A!

Care to do some deducing of your own?

What to expect when you’re expecting (The Hobbit Fan Event on Monday)

1395186_585790668123209_1446338395_n

The Nov 4th Fan Event for The Hobbit is upon us and at this point all we can do is speculate what treats are in store for us.

As I was going down my Twitter feed it was wonderful to see so many of my RA friends score tickets to see the cast in either NY or London.

Magzy asked me whether I was jealous and I truthfully answered that yes, but not in the obvious way.

It would be much worse if Richard was in London as it’d be extremely difficult but doable to try to make it work.

As RA is in NY, beside logistic issues (like a 10 hour flight), the US isn’t getting a tourist penny from me until they get rid of tourist visas (seeing that we ARE citizens of the EU).

Therefore, there wasn’t any way in hell to bend reality to fit with my fangirl desires.

Zdjęcie: The new trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be unveiled tomorrow (Tuesday, October 1st) at 6am PT / 9am ET!Share if you're counting down!

I have to admit that reading fan encounters always delight me and I hope our fellow admirers show us with insider info.

 I’m always proud of the conduct of our fandom members on RA impact, despite probably being on the verge of exploding, they usually manage a calm cool exterior and represent us well.

It’s also easier for me to live vicariously through another fan, I can just imagine myself in this situation, I giggle (and sometime squirm) reading the details and I get a rush that is probably almost as intense as the lucky fan felt on meeting Richard… almost…

The event will take place at 11pm on Monday AT (meaning Agzy time), so could be worse.

I’ll be bundled up in bed with my laptop, refreshing the page every few seconds, trying not to think about having to get up the next day at 6am.

I’ll give watching everything go down in real time a go, although it felt odd during 2012 SD: Comic-Con and I quickly abandoned trying to keep up.

What can we expect?

Difficult to guess.

My bet is that because there are four host cities, we aren’t going to see that much of Richard, especially that he’ll be joined by a teenage girl Orlando Bloom and much of the attention will be focused on Legolas (the name comes from the Scottish ‘lass’ and Lego because he delivers his lines like he was made of plastic… OK, not really…).

The event poster claims there will be live Q&A and exclusive footage shown, but I’ll be the judge of how exclusive that footage feels 😉

The event is dubbed a FAN event, so I hope we’ll be able to satisfy our FAN appetites!

What would you like to see on Monday?

Are there any questions you’d like Richard to be asked?

I want Candy… Eye Candy that is…

I’m busy with college this weekend, so I’d just like to leave you with a few hot pics to help you combat the frosty weather 🙂

Here are a few collages of my favorite Richard Armitage photo shoots representing the past, present, and future and His Highness Gorgeousness I (and hopefully the start of an equally beautiful dynasty).

The past from 2010, during the ‘blue Lucas’ phase

The stance, the beautiful blue eyes and Prada shirt.

And the jeans with no room… for error 😉

Richard Armitage 2010 Blue

The present favorite from December, taken in New York during The Hobbit promotion.

Armitage goes for a more youthful look (Yo! Dude, love the hoodie man!!!), but I like this shoot mostly because it’s so animated and ‘real’.

I like a man who’s good with his hands… errrr… meant to say a man who talks with his hands…

Richard Armitage New York The Hobbit collage

And hopefully Richard’s future styling from now on, from Glamour Magazine UK

The classical styling kills me and I adore the hairstyle.

He even looks like he smells fabulous!

Scratch and sniff…

Sniff and melt…

Melt and scratch… and repeat the process…

What’s your favorite photo shoot?

Edward Hopper 1942

Nighthawkes, 1942

I have always loved this painting. It portrays a group of guests sitting at a diner late at night. It is supposed to be a diner in Greenwich Village, in New York, that has since been demolished.  To me it’s a homage to Manhattan, its’ energy and climate. That’s what I really love about NY- you can find a friendly spot at all hours and some bar to sit by and waste away the time.

1940’s New York- look who’s in the neighborhood

The 1940’s were dominated by World War II.

In New York the Great Depression was eased by the war production. Women took on new roles as they had to replace men who had gone off to war. Hence the exodus from the home to the workplace. This was undone when men returned and expected their jobs back. The woman’s role reverted to being a housewife and home maker.

Guess who else hung out in New York of the 1940’s

I shall be writing more about men’s fashion in the 1940’s at a later date.

My only regret is that RA’s character does not appear longer, neigh, does not monopolize Captain America. I have to admit that the moment he popped open his cyanide pill, the movie was over for me.

He did such a good job at playing a baddie, as he always does. What is interesting is that he is capable of such tenderness on screen, as we can see with Thornton or Standring.
