Re-Watching Into The Storm – Not Much of a Twist

Apart from Michele lobbying for this film in the wake of the horror of Hannibal, I wouldn’t have considered 2014 disaster flick Into The Storm for a rewatch, had ITS not been on Irish free TV at the end of January. That already preempts my verdict to some degree.  You see, I don’t think that…

Armitage Weekly Round-up 2019/10

It’s the weekly round-up everyone… Only posting this picture of Daniel Miller by jassy2101 because it gives me reason to use a German word. Dackelfalten. Literally: dachshund wrinkles. I think that is so much more evocative than “frown” I suspect this is an oldie, but just because it fits the scene so nicely… What a Guy…

RA Pocket Shrine 182/? – Super Strong Manly

The RAPS reveals are coming fast and hard these days. I probably should stretch them out a bit in order to avoid devaluing the currency. Or add some extra value to the posts. So today’s RAPS reveal is preceded by a shout-out to Maggie aka puppers26 on Twitter. Maggie has been part of the Richie…

Give Richard Armitage the Lead in a RomCom!

We interrupt our… omg, what was I going to say? I can’t think straight because I have just seen the sun rise: View this post on Instagram Richard Armitage onstage at Starfury Red Dragon 5. #starfury #starfuryevents #reddragon5 #reddragon #rdc5 #rdc #hannibal #hannibalcon #richardarmitage #castlevania #castlevanianetflix #thehobbit #berlinstation #fannibals A post shared by Starfury Events…

RA Pocket Shrine 181/? – Sinful

Before I get into today’s RAPS reveal, I have a couple of things on my list. Flat Richie is safe and sound. He already arrived at destination last weekend. There was a tiny bit of worry that he might miss being picked up, but then LoLo came back just in time to pick up the…

High Emotions – Sunday at #RDC5 [part 9]

It’s been so bloody long, I really need to put this baby to bed. The last few things that need to be said about Red Dragon Con 5 – and I’ll make it relatively short because, yes, I am already bored with myself, too. [Added pre-publication but after finishing the post: Yeah, right, “short”… ]…

RA Pocket Shrine 180/? – Fast Food

For all my Big Mama Bear histrionics, I am sometimes a right booby. The number of cells active in my brain seems to develop inversely proportional to the number of years I am clocking up in life. Sometimes I wonder whether I am actually suffering from early on-set Alzheimer. But then I remember that I…

RA Pocket Shrine 179/? – A Thank You Spook

Thank you for the lovely feedback on the first ever Steampunk RAPS. I think it is well-established now that the theme and the style is very much favoured by many readers here. I have noted it and will make more. In fact, I have already started brainstorming scenarios and chaRActers and screenshots and what-have-you. Watch…

RA Pocket Shrine 178/? – The Original Steampunk

[Honest truth: I couldn’t wait to write this post. Or rather: I couldn’t wait to publish this post, so I wrote it in advance, even before I received notice from the recipient that the shrine had arrived. Whether this is really a masterpiece of mine, probably depends on your taste. But somehow I am extremely…

Armitage Weekly Round-up 2019/9

This is completely new. I am sitting in my bed this morning, Saturday, Macbook on my knees, writing the round-up. Mr Guylty was away for a couple of nights, and so I have the bed to myself. (There’s only a black cat sharing the Saturday morning quiet with me right now…) I usually compile the…
