It has come to my attention that the weekly round-up was
greatly missed last week. My computer troubles are not yet over, but I can’t be responsible for a withdrawal crisis in the fandom, so I am back with a compilation of all things wonderful from tumblr for pleasure and perusal.
Late again, though, this time due to Friday night being taken up with my subscription to the National Concert Hall which could not be missed. My favourite composer was on, Rachmaninov, with my second favourite piece of his, the second piano concerto. I love Rachmaninov’s perfect mix of symphonic tradition with distinctly modern elements – see if you can catch that bit in the second movement where you involuntarily want to break into “All By Myself”. Shamelessly stolen by Eric Carmen!!! Why don’t you let this YouTube clip run in the background while you click yourself through the list of links. It may enhance the experience 😉
And now let’s dive into the round-up. It may comprise the loot from two weeks, seeing that I missed last weekend.
- I really enjoy the new daily RArmitage categories. Here is Feudal Friday courtesy of queenoferebor1204
- Where is this petition? I’ll sign it straight away. Richardarmitageconfessions
- Mezzmerizedbyrichard has put together a quote from Orla Brady re. Richard acting Porter and the pictures to illustrate the scene
- Circusgifs feeds my nipple kink with this set of gifs. Mind you, I am always much more fascinated by the shadow created by the Armitagean proboscis. Anyone remember Big Bird from Sesame Street? (Sorry Richard – it’s a beautiful nose, honest! I really like it! Love it, actually!)
- Clematis70’s dash did a thing *miaow*
- Riepu10 is on number 40 of her infinite list of RA characters manips – Porter #4
- Fan art at its best: radioproxy reimagines Thorin and Bilbo first encounter – on the tube
- Bagginshield fan or not – this is so cute… and don’t we all remember doing exactly this, too, in the first stages of love? Comics by rutobuka2
- “Tender Tuesday” by queenoferebor1204, Lucas North edition
- Glady71, who is a regular commenter here on my blog, and also a Tweep, has started out on tumblr with a splash. I love her collages. Have a look at this one – the first picture is a great edit!
- A richardarmitage-confidential that takes on a distinctly fictional note. I like it…
- Fan artist norloth has prepared for the forthcoming HobbitCon 4 in Bonn next weekend. This is what she is taking with her
- Mezzmerizedbyrichard has put Raymond de Merville into the appropriate context. Guylty loves the background
- Richardcfarmitage OTOH has cleaned the background out of the set images of Richard as Daniel Miller from a couple of weeks ago
- So glad to see a bit of Chop on tumblr. Here are gifs by ksei-zmrk (and on that note: Where are the news about UATSC? I so hope it will eventually see the light of day!)
- Francis Dolarhyde as seen by richard–wayne
- Audiobooks read by Richard are the hot topic right now. Clematis70 reminds us about Richard talking about performing Venetia – I had not heard this interview before
- Look at this gif by fruityadobo, rehearsing Thorin and Bilbo’s confrontation on the ramparts. Check Jed Brophy in this – am I the only one who thinks that he looks as if he is going in there to hold Richard back from seriously hurting Freeman? Method actors, eh?
- Thehobbitpanda is on to something. I wonder, does Richard know?
- No round-up without a mention of Sinnaminie – here’s the Paddy’s Day plushie
- Myrichardtreehouse is still playing “Guess the character” – number 49 is a hard one
- LOL – great manip by hannisome
