OT: A Different Kind of Father’s Day

Father’s Day is already over. But today is *my* father’s day. His 6th anniversary. I have never really liked the convention of remembering loved ones by the date of their death. It’s as if their defining feature was their passing – instead of their life. But I admit, it is a handy occasion to remember…

“Now And Then” – Richard to Star in LGTBQ+ Drama

Now, *this* is some exciting news. More so than yesterday’s “Quark” news. According to the Hollywood Reporter again, Richard is signed up to play the lead in an LGTBQ+ drama, taking the role of a middle-aged gay man who revisits his past and who works through his relationship with his mother. Says Richard: With Armitage…

So, The Priest Film Is On

It almost seemed forgotten – especially with the pandemic putting an end to all film productions for the time being. But now the Hollywood Reporter *exclusively* (!!) claims that the project is back on track – and put Richard right on top billing. I am kind of non-plussed by the news. Well, let’s say I…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #24

After a few days of rain and overcast skies, today I woke up to a blue sky and sunshine. Good weather does wonders to my moods – and Mr Guylty’s as well, so we hopped into the car and went out for a walk in the middle of Dublin Bay. The walk along the Great…

Overdue #FlatRichie Logbook Catch-up

Before I get back to replying to the many comments that have accumulated over the last couple of days – many thanks for taking the time to respond, everyone; I appreciate your thoughts and replies very much – I want to catch up with Flat Richie. I had promised to go through the log book,…

Podcast Transcript and a Few Comments

After my whining and moaning yesterday – good to get if off my chest, lads, and thank you for entertaining my whingeing – I’ve decided to give candidness a little try. As I said, I’ve been chewing over my approach to my self-censoring blogging, and what brought it to the fore this time was actually…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #23

Why is it that with the easing of lockdown restrictions, the weather in Ireland promptly turns wet and cold? Murphy’s Law, I guess. So I am retreating into my craft room today, to face this mess.  The home improvements are continuing, and I have a sneaky plan involving the collected outgrown denims of the past…

Richard’s Soundtrack – and a New Picture

Oh, this is unexpected… The NME brings a little interview with Richard, entitled “The Soundtrack of my Life”. Yes, exactly what it says on the tin – all the songs that are somehow significant for RA. There are some absolute gems in there – and I don’t actually mean the music! The musical choices are…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #22

Is this a new photo? This is obviously also taken at the same time as Richard’s visit to the Audible HQ in New York (?) last autumn. I don’t remember seeing this exact picture then, though. And I would’ve thought I’d remember because I am quite taken with the nice shirt he is wearing. Who…

Richard Makes It Into A German Women’s Magazine

Thanks to fellow fan Ellen an article about Richard in one of Germany’s foremost women’s magazines has surfaced. Surprise! How nice to find this in @brigitteonline today, @RCArmitage! "Wegen seiner schönen tiefen Stimme lohnt es sich, Filme und Serien mit #RichardArmitage, 48, im englischen Original anzuschauen." Well, it's not only the voice though! 😍 pic.twitter.com/SEyjnxuHnZ…
