Hello hello hello – sorry for the sudden silence yesterday. No complications with the crown prince after his procedure but rather a visitor who came at 2pm and left at 11.30pm 😁. And I had had such high hopes and big plans for yesterday. I was going to watch Hannibal 3×11 and then write the re-watch post. Well, that didn’t happen 😂. I am not sure how fast I am going to be with the re-watch today, so to tide us over, I looked into the RAmantic past again.
It’s actually not that easy finding a post in my archive of tumblr overkill. Just so you get a vague idea, here is a look at *my* tumblr archive for only *one* month in 2012.
Well, in fact what you see above in the screen shot is only 1/8 of what is in my archive for September 2012! Of course it is in the nature of tumblr that stuff re-appears double, triple, multiple times. And because tumblr is a microblogging platform, most of the content is actually not created by *me* but simply reblogged. But well, in any case, the screen shot belies the frantic need to talk about RA, to gush, to fangirl, to drool, to entertain, to get distracted and to distract others. So there you have, Armitage Army newbies – good old guylty was a newbie once and couldn’t get enough of RA…
So, anyway, finding some re-post-worthy stuff in the rabbit hole that is a tumblr archive, is difficult. This is only a small bit, but I laughed again and thought that this is so obscure that there is a high chance many of the readers here may not have seen it. Because – you have to look hard… 😂 But then hard it will also hit.
This is, as you can imagine, a tiny scene in the background of the shot, afaik from one of the Hobbit vlogs posted by Sir Peter Jackson in 2012. Prior to release of TH . The gif in question is rather blurry. In case you haven’t quite copped what we are talking about – you see Richard doing some weird, crazy jumping in the background. Whether he is dry-cycling
in which case I would like to be the bike between his thighs or doing some exaggerated ballet moves, it is just hilarious. My take was always (as you can see in my tumblr post above), that RA was being silly and clowning around, something that I love to see him doing. The man is usually so eager to be serious, it just warms my heart when he lets go and is simply the way he is. Which apparently occasionally includes being a bit of a prankster, clown or joker. Oh, and not to mention that self-deprecating humour. That is just full-on sexy – someone who laughs sustains my interest more than someone who only has one facial expression. Even if the latter is a full-on smoulder.
Anyway, we’ll probably never know what exactly *he* was doing there. *But* Graham McTavish is in on it, too. He is also doing some suspicious arm and leg movements. Were they dry-flying? Learning the breast-stroke?
No sniggering here, ladies, I was talking about swimming not foreplay! We will never find out. Unless we ask McTavish to explain to us what was going on – he is probably the one most likely to answer a fan question to that effect… 😉. What do you think RA was doing? And why? And what do you think about grown men clowning around? A sign of being young and full of life – or being silly and unprofessional?
Let me know in the comments.
