Three posts in a row about RA hair is cutting egde blogging…

It’s a very hectic and busy week for me and Friday will either bring about a huge bang or just fizzle out.

While I’m dealing with RL stuff here’s a quick poll regarding RA hair and if 2 posts on one topic is sloppy, three is just plain old lazy ūüėČ

From RA’s recent looks, which hair length would tickle your pickle more¬†(if you had one that is…)?

Do you favour the sleek and chic Old Hollywood glamour length…

Or would you prefer your fingers to get tangle up in that hot curly mess…

Here’s the quick poll:

Amitage Moustache Madness

We’ve seen Richard’s face sporting all levels of fuzziness, from smooth as a baby’s bottom to hairy¬†beary, but not so much with moustaches.

I remember there being a dodgy lip warmer in Malice Aforethought and Miss Marie Lloyd, but I think that’s it (please correct me if I’m wrong).

Staches¬†aren’t exactly the height of fashion now, and my dad seems to be the only man who can pull one off.

Don’t get me wrong, we’ve tried to get him to shave, but it’s just become a part of him and I think he feels¬†bare without it.

If you think there’s not much to a moustache, think again!

There are different shapes and sizes.

Don’t believe me?

Types-Of-Mos

And if you want to get all fancy and europeany¬†about it, here’s a posher version of the good old moustache chart (you snob!):

types-of-moustaches-best-mustache-classy-stylish-mustache

First up, the Fu Manchu, is a full, straight moustache that grows downward past the lips and on either side of the chin.

The pointed ends hang towards or past the jaw line.

To me it’s more like the Fu Hell’s Angels, but what do I know…

Next up is a cross between the Regular Mo and Handlebar, although I’m getting a hint of Dr Watson too.

Quick, pass the pipe and an annoyed Sherlock.

Armitage moustache 2

If a more slick version is your cup of tea, how about the full Handlebar.

He look like he’s about the release doves from his sleeve and sew a woman in half (I volunteer, Richard The Ravenous!).

Armitage moustache 3

Then we have the Dali, which makes everyone look like a pompous twat artsy.

I could just go around drawing these on every magazine cover model.

I could just go around drawing these on Richard.

I could go around….Richard…

Armitage moustache 4

Next up is something that I’d like to call Dali in the Rain.

It’s what my hair does when I curl it and step outside my house.

Armitage moustache 5

If the purpose of a moustache is to warm the upper lip then this style has it covered (pun intended).

It’s the Walrus, but it¬†looks like¬†the Horseshoe on steroids.

The phrase “Waiter, waiter, there’s a¬†hair in my soup” is unavoidable…

Armitage moustache 6

By now you could have noticed that the chin was getting a little lonely, so here’s a Handlebar and Chin Puff.

Sometime a man just needs to get his sleaze on…

Armitage moustache 9

We need an Armitage Admirer poll to select the best option for Richard, so¬†I’ve compiled¬†some poll options.

And “no moustache” is not an option, sorry to say!

Let’s imagine that Richard in the mayor of Moustacheville¬†in Moustachion county, New Moustache state, The United States of Moustache.

In other words, he’s getting a moustache and you’ve just got to deal with it ūüėČ

Here are your options:

So, I moustache you this question:

Can you guess which one is my favourite?

Regarder¬†en arri√®re¬†√† moi, you fille stupide!”‚ô¶

¬†Oh l√†¬†l√†, I can’t lie, Monsieur Jean Thornton is turning me on ūüėČ

I’m holding out for my Hero

Thorin Misty Mountain 1

I have a little confession to make:

I still don’t own a copy of The Hobbit.

Nope, not even a naughty copy tucked away somewhere on my laptop to tie me over.

When the DVD came out in March¬†I¬†had already decided that I’d wait till someone bought it for my birthday in November¬†the fancier one with all the extra footage and whatnot was out.

I’m not sure if it’s a smart move, I’ll probably watch the special features once, if that, and I’m hardly a hardcore Tolkien or movie buff to appreciate the goodies Sir PJ throws our way.

Then again, I may be rewarded for my patience by hours of extra Richard/Thorin footage to last me a lifetime.

Yeah, I’m not holding my breath either…

Armitage Dragon fire

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we got to see Richard’s transformation from the moment he arrives at the costume department (or even sooner, like getting out of bed), to the time he’s ready to start shooting (again, or further, when he’s getting back into bed).

As my extreme Armitage fangirling¬†wishes rarely come true (not one RA-inspired¬†symphony has been written to date!), I think we’ll probably end up pressing the pause button to capture those few¬† glimpses of Richard, and he’ll probably have his¬†back to the camera in most of those.

I was wondering what your tactic was with regards to The Hobbit DVD.

How much is too much Hobbiting?

I came across this image by Aimo of the Durin boys Thorin Kili, Fili, rocking it hard with the support of Bombur  here.

It’s about time The Misty Mountain got a rockin’ treatment!

Those dirty dwarves sure know how to get down and dirty ūüôā

My family is in a bit of a crisis mode today while¬†we’re waiting on some news regarding my Dad’s health, so just¬†a quick post to keep my mind off worrying and¬†a question to satisfy my curiosity.

After expressing my apprehension about the 48fps and 3D viewing experience, I was surprised to read in comments(or maybe not so surprised come to think of it…) that many of you have seen The Hobbit multiple times.

I bet a nice percentage of the billions the movie has made in the box office is due to the Armitage fans chasing¬†the Thorin high ūüôā

I’m still planning on seeing the movie at least once in the cinema and then throwing¬†the DVD¬†on my present wish list.

Is there a number of times of times you are able to see a movie without feeling you’ve crossed the line?

Would you ever go to a different¬†cinema just so the staff don’t recognise you and brand you a multiple-viewing weirdo?

The reason I ask is NOT because my sister Magzy¬†went a bit crazy with the Twilight saga… *cough*…uhmm…

Nope, that never happened…nope…

Less said sooner mended…

Time to spill the beans and tell me:

It’s all about Thorin! Thorin! Thorin!

There was a Brady Bunch¬†series where Jan, the middle daughter, complained that ‘It’s all about¬†Marcia! Marcia!Marcia!”

I think we can easily apply this thinking to our little fandom, as it does all seem to be about Thorin! Thorin! Thorin!

I think it’s only natural that the lead-up to Richard’s biggest step in his career means we have shifted focus from other beloved characters.

I have observed that about 80% of Armitage news and posts is connected to The Hobbit.

Believe me, I know I’m guilty of focusing a majority of¬†my posts on that little sexy bushy-eyebrowed¬†devil!

I too am beyond excited about December, although I’ve vowed not to send a penny on merchandise until I actually see the movie, but it does make me feel like I’m ungrateful to the other RA characters.

Let’s not forget the months at a time when there’d be absolutely no RA news.

The drought was painful, and yet we survived and thrived because we found hidden depths in the characters available to us.

We had to dig a little deeper and flex our creative muscle to shed new light on old characters.

I miss Thornton and Porter a little and wonder when they will once again get the attention they deserve.

I have a quick question for you today:
