[With apologies for fuck-up earlier on.]
Crikey! *That* went spectacularly wrong. *oooooops* With yesterday’s festivities on Armitage-Day and the mayhem caused by you-know-who’s surprising emergence on Twitter, I totally forgot that I had my customary round-up scheduled – but unfinished. I usually collect the links as I go along, but this week I had been busy. Plus, the Richard Armitage tag on tumblr is currently a bit of a war zone. Do not go in unarmed.
Or wear blinkers like I do. I pass by the speculation, the triumphant self-congratulation, the APM and the inter-fan sniping like John Porter in his camouflaged best, honing in like a heat-seeking missile on the fun and the weird, the artful and the honest. Everything else is small beer, if you ask me. And not worth my breath. Tough titties. Or just look at the links that I am presenting. Now in the proper version…
- Thorin’s on a horse. Or: Another take on Old Spice. Very funny. By bellydancinggirl
- Has Gimmesherlock changed his/her name? Here is the ridiculously funny Professor Chuckles Interview with RA series on the Gimmethehobbit blog. Part 2
- This only took 3.5 hours to make? Majestic Thorin by rockitrocket
- Oh Cod, I laughed so much about this. And not only because I am a massive Python fan. RAsnakrtastic has got it down
- Photoshop is such a great tool. Nice take, hi-tom
- LOL oninha interprets sign language
- A funny Thorin drawing by faramireowyn
- Another one of Mimi/nfcomics’ Guy edits
- And of course we immediately got some gifs of the latest interviews. I really liked this one by richardcfarmitage of the RTE interview. You go Shinners, you go!
- Loved riepu10’s adequately illustrated quotes
- A handy (and nicely illustrated) collection of RA’s birthday quotes. Thank you thorins-arkenstone
- Norloth draws another beautiful Thorin
- Mrsjohnstandring put two and two together in her gifset. Cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute, no?
- The Durin boys go on a roadtrip. These photos by the-hobbit are just so funny, I love it
- And then there were tons of birthday posts. I liked this gif set by richard-armitage-poland, with greetings from the Polish contingent
- lukas-north’s birthday gif set
- circusgifs celebrates the birthday by focussing on Richard’s broad back
- And our sweet siriuslygrednforge has a birthday collage of Richard on her tumblr
- While applefia2036 has contemporary RA on her greetings
Oh goodness me – the coming week will be an onslaught of Twitter-related stuff, I imagine. Man, from zero to 100 in no time. No wonder I was completely stunned into inaction last night. Well, I’ll finish this with my own badly rhymed birthday deliberations for RA. Perry had asked for it on ArmitageAgonistes.
