RA Today ~ January 6


by nyphette

Things got really busy at home today.  I’ve only linked new stuff I like – not the “just in case someone likes it” stuff.   Relatively slim pickings today for you, I’m afraid.  Oh … Richard won the Anglophile’s British Artist of the Year.  I have a confession … I didn’t vote once.  Bad well wisher?

    Thanks for the goodies, saving them up for tonight 😉 but erm i don’t think that voting is done yet. Hadn’t looked at it before, but as far as i can tell the voting goes on until Jan 9th? What was circulated i think was just fan art, maybe to raise interest?

      You are 100% correct. I saw the post, shrugged and moved on without looking back. This has become quite an interesting micro-event. I’m not a negative nelly; I enjoy supporting RA where possible; he’s been so much fun in the TAC interviews; so what’s up with the TAC awards this year? Perhaps a bit of introspection to discover the cause/nature of this ambivalence wouldn’t go amiss. It feels like a little bit of remorse should be in order but there’s none at all – just complete apathy. Has anyone else ever experienced this sort of thing in their well-wisher life? Things that make you go ‘hmmmmmm’.

        well i’m not much into internet based voting anyway if it is of little further consequence, i’m more into industry/professional awards. This is a fun thing to do as a fan 🙂 if one has time/inclination. I’m certainly voting in public awards such as What’s on stage for example. I’m sure i’ll find some voting think that will tickle my fancy 😉 Besides i like most of those nominated and don’t feel like competing with other fandoms. The one thing that i’ve thrown myself into with a vengence and with much pleasure taken out of it is seeing both BOTFA and Crucible as many times as possible. Still planning another BOTFA before month end. Now there i know i can make a real impact 🙂 And boy did i cry yesterday with Thorin when he died! Didn’t expect it to still happen the 4th time round but it did 🙂

        I like the way you think 🙂 There was something which struck during the BBC awards this fall … it just seemed a little ‘off’ to compete with fandoms. What is the award then? Is it anything to do with the actual actor or is it who has the most fanatical fans? I dunno. I don’t mean to belittle fan based awards because there is merit and worth to show that an up and coming actor has a strong fanbase. That does help him/her I think. But, like you, I’m now in the more tangible mindset. Thank you for explaining it so well – you’ve helped me understand my own reactions better 🙂

  2. Just sent you an email about the voting ending on Jan 9th. I haven’t voted this year either.

    Thanks again for all of the links. For not having much time I think it was an impressive effort 😀

    Nah, not a bad well-wisher, just a busy one. Besides, I think Marlise has it rigged so that Richard wins every year. 😉
