RA Today ~ August 25, 2014

Apologies – I don’t know what happened this morning but this posted in a partial state of undress and I couldn’t pull it back.   I’ll use read more’s from now on too because I’ve just realized how very long these posts are.

News of the day:  The Crucible was cancelled today because, it is rumoured, of concerns about the roof in yellow alert weather.  Richard came out to apologize to patrons, sign autographs and have photos taken.  A consummate gentleman.

Speaking for himself, or: Why I like Richard Armitage tweeting

Me + Richard Armitage

BvylQr4IQAAy_bK.jpg_largeIt’s not just that Richard Armitage is funny (although in my opinion he is — my opinion of meat beards here or there, not every joke needs to tickle my fancy), nor that it marks a real career caesura in terms of his publicity (although I think it does, from my long term perspective much more so than the Hobbit: TDOS 2013 publicity blitz did — to me the real break was 2012), nor that he’s used it to promote charitable endeavors. I like all of those things. We’ve always known he was funny. Look at those early messages to fans if you don’t believe me — the “serious Richard” trope which was created in the post-North & South publicity and which many fans jumped on wholeheartedly but in my opinion, mistakenly, and the “precious Richard” trope that predominated among many fans, notwithstanding. Developing more facility with…

Richard’s twitter experience is off to a great start.  Fun and friendly tweets, a peek into the preparation for his role as Proctor and a very interesting list of people & organizations he follows.

RA Today ~ August 22, 2014

Misc

There have been dozens, if not hundreds of beautiful edits, pic sets and gif sets today.  It’s been a little overwhelming and with some personal business to take care of today, I haven’t been able to pull them all in.  Apologies for that.    Also, the edits I had planned for today will wait until things cool down a bit 😉   This is a longer than usual post so I’m giving the ‘read more’ a try.

Happy Armitage-Day with a List of Photo Shoots

Guylty is my hero in so many ways. This is the most phenomenal post!

Guylty Pleasure

What do you give somebody who has everything? You don’t give them a tangible present at all. You do something in their honour, possibly. Or you create something for them, a poem, a painting, a birthday cake? Sometimes it is enough to let people know that we are thinking of them on their special day. And thus I have not written a birthday card to Richard Armitage. I am slightly cynical in that I believe there is not much point in writing to him. Or if I write, then I’d be writing for myself, really, and not for him, so I might as well do that here, on the blog that is dedicated to him but really is much more about and for his fans than about and for him. I think he’ll survive my growing lack of allegiance *ggg*.

When I do write about Richard Armitage, I like to…
