Letterbombing with Love

Guylty Pleasure

It seems already such a long time ago that I was still in Germany and received this short and no frills e-mail:

I picked up two sets of posters from the old vic on my visit and id like to pass them on to fellow fans ,postage paid as a kindness , BUT I don’t know how to go about getting names and address of 6 fans …any ideas ?

Let me interpret this for you: An e-mail by a fan. She has seen the Crucible in London. She has bought some posters. With the intention of giving them away, as presents, to those who cannot go. With no strings attached and all postage paid. The tears were sitting pretty loosely in those days, anyway, but when I got that e-mail, they were tears of genuine affection, an altogether different chemical concoction than those of grief.

It seemed the easiest…

Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #28

Guylty Pleasure

This post had to be compiled early. Well, only one day early, but who knows what I may have missed yesterday? While you are reading this I am soaking up big-city atmosphere in… London. You can guess what that means. Yes, I have seen the play last night, and if there is any opportunity, I will give my 2 cents’ worth some time later today. Lucky that I am writing this post beforehand then, because at the time of writing I fully expect to be mentally and physically unable to process anything other than just having seen *that* play. And *that* actor. Live.

Ok, but enough of that. Let’s have a look at this week’s recommendations for tumblr content. The week was extraordinarily Rich rich in cool stuff. With SDCC over,  ITS just before its premiere and Jackson finally throwing us the BOTFA trailer, the giffers on tumblr had a…

Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #27

Guylty Pleasure

Goodness me. Guess who completely fell out of her routine and completely forgot about compiling the round-up for the customary 8am (GMT) publication? Yeah. They say it takes three weeks to establish a habit. And probably only three days to fall out of it… But well, better late than never, and so here is what I found noteworthy on tumblr this week.

Round-up header 27

  1.  Jollytr continues her great fan service and has compiled another massive picture set that summarises episodes 9 to 13 of RH season 1. Thanks!
  2. Staying with Guy of Gisborne – riepu10 not only delights by posting a particularly loved photo of our Guy, but she’s found a quote that I hadn’t read before and that I really enjoyed
  3. ruinarmitage was one of the people who giffed the Crucible promo video. I love how she interspersed it with the reviews
  4. My shrine fairy Mimi, aka nfcomics, continues her…

Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #26

Guylty Pleasure

Tada! The round-up is back! Of course it really irks me that the number of round-up now doesn’t correspond with the number of weeks in the year anymore :-(. Yes, so anal is Guylty’s sense of duty and order. You can also call simply ascribe it to being German. Or to having spent the last four weeks in Germany. Hell, it really is pretty easy falling back into the unspoken rules and regulations of German small-town life…

I draw a proper blank when it comes to two of the last three weeks on tumblr. I did look at my dash every other day, but I hardly reblogged, and I didn’t mark the posts that were eligible for inclusion in a round-up. But I am back at the reblog button now, and therefore I present you the latest and greatest from tumblr, edition #26. I think that demands a new logo/signature…

The Crucible (Old Vic), review

great performances


Arthur Miller’s powerful play equating the hysteria of the Salem witch trials with the investigations of the McCarthy committee against Communist influences within Hollywood.  Even with this in mind the unfolding plot seems eerily relevant today, in which any questioning of authority might be seen as subversive, and where the question can still be asked “is the accuser always holy?”

The Old Vic auditorium has been adapted to accommodate a production ‘in the round’, not entirely successfully – from the original old stalls seating, where I was, you look forward to the old proscenium arch and boxes which look a little forlorn now, especially as they have been draped in what look like stained dustsheets.  Ahead there is temporary stalls seating, some so close to the actors they almost become part of the action, and two tiers of seating above.  These seats must cost less than the ones on the other…

Emergency *ooof*: Full Frontal Arsitage

Guylty knocks it out of the park … again

Guylty Pleasure

“Christ Almighty!” I quote myself here, with my immediate reaction when I followed the link that Sahraobsessed had thankfully alerted me of via Twitter. You may imagine that exclamation at about lawn mower decibels with a measure of post-marathon breathlessness thrown in. Oh, and of course with the same tone of incredulity that a 7-nil soccer win against Brazil elicits *ggg*. Many, many curses are currently floating around in my brain in reaction to the images. “What the f*ck, Armitage???” is actually the tamest one of them all. 😀 Ok, Guylty, hold it together and do your duty now.

How extraordinarily fortunate that I had started researching for an *ooof* on Wednesday – and lo and behold – for the image that adorns the offensive ST article… Well, ditch that image (which I am not *that* fond of, anyway) and instead choose a triple *ooof* from the rest of the…
