How are we holding up, everywhere? I tackled some more kitchen stuff today while Mr Guylty continues to paint the windows. (Craft room is still not usable – window wide open to let the paint dry, and it’s cooooold. Incidentally, Mr Guylty’s painting project has struck just as I had started working on a couple of RA pocket shrines. I got up from my desk on Wednesday evening thinking I would sit back down at it on Thursday. So I left all those yummy print-outs of Armitage strewn all over my desk, not expecting the dear husband to prance in there. Um. No word yet from Mr Guylty about that. I guess he knows I am a lost cause.) Besides household entertainments, daughter and I amused ourselves by filming a mini video today, a birthday video for my goddaughter. We devised our own little Sesame Street skit. Sorry, can’t share, but just to say it’s another project to pass the time…
Before I get to question 4 of the ADC, I wanted to give a little link love to our fan sisters who have taken up the challenge for everyone’s entertainment. Esther has done questions 1 to 13 in one fell swoop HERE and Armidreamer has followed suit on her blog HERE. Zeesmuse has posted individual answers on her BLOG. If there is uptake on tumblr, I’ll get to it in tomorrow’s round-up. Thanks for taking part 😘
4. What’s your favourite episode of your favourite show?
Dang. What’s my favourite show? Ok, I am interpreting “show” as “serialised TV show”. I can’t believe I am saying this, because soldiers are usually not my thing, but for a little while already and at this point in time, my needs are for hunky, chunky heroes, so Strike Back it is. In the interest of identifying and affirming my favourite episode, I had to go through the entire SB gallery on RAnet. Actually, I am lying – even before the image gallery finally appeared on my screen (little note here for everybody: don’t despair if you are trying to access the RAnet picture galleries and the page appears to only be empty – there is a lot of data in those galleries, and depending on your broadband speed, the page will take a little while to load!), I had already remember which episode I used to pause for scrutiny.
No, it’s not because of the disrobing and disinfecting scene in the prison yard, although I confess I always have to laugh out loud when I see this screen cap:
It’s not the erotic dream scene, either, although I find it quite nicely done.
It’s actually because I love the ending of that episode. Charged to eliminate Masuku after springing him from prison, Porter has everything ready to shoot and dispatch him in a ready-dug grave. But Masuku successfully plants doubt about Porter’s superiors’ motives in his head, and Porter decides to believe him and disobey the order. It just shows that he is a man capable of independent thinking – apart from being a pretty hot, effective operator, too. As in: He’s not just a clever killing machine, but he knows what is right and wrong, and he is not afraid to make his own decisions.
So there, a thinking hero. Besides – this episode also has some of the nicest cinematography.
This particular short scene, filmed with backlight in an atmospherically lit room with plenty of smoke, is quite aesthetic. Plus: sharp profile and backlit forearm hair porn.
Talking of porn: Eyelashes.
I leave it at that.
PS: I noticed while perusing the gallery, that the pictures do not appear in order anymore. Meh. I’ll have to investigate that. And in case you are wondering how to download the images: That is still possible. I have described the process on the gallery’s main page, but just FYI: To save an image, right click on the thumbnail of the image on the gallery page (NOT the full size image) and choose “open in new tab”. In the new tab you can then right click on the image and save as usual.
