Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #12

Saturday is round-up time. Little Miss Chatty that I am I had a great time on tumblr this week because there was lots of opportunity for expressing the opinion. And I was not the only one – there were a few posts that got a number of comments. No wonder – we are all looking forward to finding out more about “Chop”. My copy of the book arrived yesterday, and I flew through the first chapter immediately. Very promising so far!

Anyway, before I ramble on, here is our Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #12!

new round up header

  1. Great artwork by tolkienette
  2. A Richard Armitage Confession that for me raises a lot of resistance – what do you think???
  3. Part 2 of Playazindaback/AwkwCeleb’s ArmitageMania story with an appearance of yours truly
  4. Tie porn. And no girls, this is not NSFW. Promise!!! Compiled by we-will-burn-together
  5. I laughed so much about this – original poster not-that-kind-of-hot’s lame πŸ˜‰ excuse and then Jazzbaby’s response… Oh man… Richard…
  6. Richardarmitageforever is courting controversy πŸ˜‰ with her post pointing out some details that men rather like to keep hidden… Linking here to a later point in the discussion… What do you think?
  7. Aw – how sweet. Thank you, too, RA (and circusgifs), and back at’cha, with love and kisses ❀ ❀ ❀
  8. You’d never guess who has been clothes-sharing!!! Pollyspersonal digs out another apocryphal RA quote
  9. I’d pay serious money for this, like I did for Thorin… (by norloth)
  10. kkwings has a little gif of the group crowd shot on the last day of shooting The Hobbit that singles out RA – oh, we love our man to laugh, don’t we?
  11. Mrpuddingston also saw the stop-motion quality of the Dunn armchair shots and made a cool gif
  12. Norloth has continued working on this and I am merely trying to fill my list by putting this in as a separate number
  13. Richardarmitageconfessions made me comment lots this week. And tumblr replied
  14. Confessions re Tumblr. To be discussed?
  15. Binglybonglybeep kicked off an interesting thread about reactions to RA’s new project. Be sure to scroll down to the notes where comments are left

That’s it – hope you found some fun and interesting bits in this!

  1. Lots of food fot thought in this week’s edition. Plus the tie post (oh but it is nsfw). πŸ˜€
    The one I find controversial is #2.. That’s a large burden for one person to carry, even if only in fantasy.


  2. I haven’t read negative statements about Richard’s new role. I heard about them, but haven’t come across any. Seems to me everyone is as happy as clams at high tide.
    This sounds crazy, but I didn’t know it was OK to reblog and comment on Confessions. And yes Guylty, I did notice you were Chatty Cathy on tumblr this week.
    The AC close up – I think he has switched from briefs to boxers.


    • I hadn’t read any negative statements, either, although I can see where possible disappointment is coming from. After two big blockbuster movies, people expect him to be in another Hollywood production, and to see him play a role that is deeply anchored in social criticism and is produced by a smaller company may seem marginal. As I said in my tumblr post – I prefer that kind of project to a big Hollywood leading man role. But that is just me – quintessential Radio 4-listening well-wisher…
      There is nothing wrong with re-blogging RAconfessions, Perry. Re-POSTING is what is frowned at, but if you want to react to a confession, there’s no other way but to re-blog. Re-blogging is what tumblr is for πŸ™‚


  3. Thanks for stockpiling the good stuff for us, Guylty. I too would like a Thornton mini Lego figure to sit next to Thorin on my shelf, please. I read with interest all the comments about RA’s latest role choice- for myself, I couldn’t be more pleased for him.


    • Little Lego Thornton is just beautiful… Really well done, and it was interesting to see the two different stages in its design process.
      I very much like the role-choice, too.


  4. Confessions really made me sit up this week. (When I wasn’t doped up enough, that is) I’m wondering where all that came from.

    Great line up again. Thanks for sticking with this. So enjoyable.


    • I was wondering whether the confessions had all piled up from one commentator only. There was interesting stuff in there, that merited a reply. I had fun with it.
      And it’s a pleasure compiling the round-up – I have gotten quite used to it by now.


  5. Thanks Guylty πŸ™‚
    Little Thornton Lego is fantastic and I’d like so much to have it… I’m sure he would find himself comfortable with his cousins Thorin AUJ and Thorin DoS.
    Tie post was great.
    I still can’t watch his thank you speech for AC for several reasons.


Let me know what you think!
