Richard In The Radio Times

Looks like The Warrior Agency (a film and TV publicity agency) is doing a spiffing job, getting Richard (or his projects) in the papers. Another article dropped yesterday, and I immediately went out in search of it today. (Mind you, it was a bit of an odyssey because I didn’t look properly and took me…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

The stupor is over! My modus operandi over the last couple of weeks was mainly characterised by rage. I wasn’t in a good place to write. And so I didn’t. Everything just enraged me so much, thanks to the frustration of powerlessness and despair I feel myself in currently. I won’t spoil the intro with it…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #14

No way, it’s Saturday, and Sonja posts a round-up 😂. Miracles happen… Is it the sunshine (although still cold outside), or the prospect of asparagus with diced smoked ham this evening, that has dialled my mood and energy to eleven? The week started tough, with a trip to A&E Sunday evening. Those of you who…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #10

First up, apologies for my whining yesterday. I really don’t like myself in moan-mode, but yeah, I’m having a hard time at the moment. At least I have taken action and made a GP appointment for next Tuesday. The new reality: No face-to-face consultation. The doctor is going to give me a phone call at…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #7

Happy Sunday, all. I am having a busy weekend – work *hooray*. Who would’ve thought that we’d get to the point where we are ecstatically happy because we are able to work??? A big 6,000-word translation on the future of audience addressability (yep, I am at it again with digital advertising) takes a couple of…

RA Pocket Shrine 230/? – Kiss with Confidence

Today is the first day of spring. In Ireland. Yes, officially. It’s St Brigid’s Day, and also the Celtic feast of Imbolc (the spring festival). This year I am opting to go for the Irish way of counting the seasons. Cos frankly, after this winter, with the darkness, the cold, the stress and the covid,…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #4

Such an exciting day today! Guess what? I have just sent my first ever online grocery shopping order. 😂 Yes, in Covid times, even the most mundane of tasks can become extraordinary. But well, with Covid numbers still worryingly high here, and now also the virus in our house, I’ve decided to minimise risks and…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #3

In last week’s round-up, I had listed a tumblr post that compiled the detail shots by Mike Lees of the intricately detailed Uncle Vanya set. Beauty aside, it is just astounding with how much care and precision the set was designed. In the comments, Besotted and I were musing about the point and reason of…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #2

Candle on, cup of tea beside me, it’s time for theeeeeeeeeeee… No question, Mr Thornton for me. And it’s all down to the man who played him. Post by scalpelgal I still haven’t watched UV, partly because all I need are the gorgeous Astrov gifs made by riepu10 No Armitage in these pictures, but I just…

RA Pocket Shrine 229/? – Astrov BTS

Usually I reveal the shrines *before* I throw them into an auction, but this time it somehow fell by the wayside. So I am now catching up with this shrine that I made on the occasion of Uncle Vanya being released in the cinema at the end of October. I had a cunning plan that involved…
