2015 Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #33

Guylty Pleasure

Ok, I can’t resist. I am writing and scheduling this on Wednesday evening, ahead of my trip across the water. When you are reading this, I will be sitting in the Barbican, watching Cumberbatch in Hamlet. However, before I left, there were already so many goodies on Tumblr that I decided on a whim, at 10.45 pm to quickly throw the link list together. Wouldn’t want to miss all this:

UATSC round-up 33

  1. First of all, not-that-kind-of-hot kindly clears up the bum fluff issue raised in Empire magazine. I think we can state he is a 1 on the scale…

I had ordered them for no other reason than I had run out of the first 100 so-called “fandom identifiers” and thought it would be nice to have some more available for… whenever.

An opportunity to don a discreet little badge that signals the shared fandom to a fellow fan while not plastering the allegiance to Mr A all over the shop. Or as I wrote last year when I originally executed the idea on prompting by notallwhowonderarelost, after…

Lots of great RA links 😀

Guylty Pleasure

The pleasure of the lull is enveloping me. Yes, I actually quite like it when there is a so-called drought. Mind you, there was enough action this week, what with RA’s cheeky tweet. I wonder how he is doing with his German language coaching… I certainly look forward to hearing some uvular fricative Rs from him, and possibly some velar fricative CHs. Sounds dirty? Look it up! 😀 They are, btw, the benchmark upon which it will be decided how good his coaching was. For a native English speaker, those sounds are extremely difficult to replicate – because they do not really exist in (Standard) English. I have full confidence in RA, though, because he is musical, and that will certainly help him first *hear* the sound, and then imitate it. Well, and maybe I shouldn’t expect too much.
