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…

[Blast from the] RAmantic Past

You may have seen it in yesterday’s round-up: Tumblr is currently in the throes of a content review. They have changed the community guidelines over there, and plenty of posts are being culled because of it. Prudes. Ignoramuses. Eejits. The platform will never be the same again, I suspect. But there is one good thing about…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #28

So, as you may have guessed from the regular round-up morning slot at 8am SHARP on a Saturday morning, I usually compile the round-up the night before so that it is ready for the morning and I don’t have to get up at an ungodly hour. Last night was one of those evenings where I…

The Fan A to Z – #M

M – RA has spoken Russian, French and German in his roles so far. How good was he and which one was your favourite? Who can resist a(n attractive) man with an accent? Any actor will do well to take on at least one role where he plays a foreigner, I think. Well, at least…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #22

It’s time to get back into the groove. The round-ups have suffered greatly this year. Too many holidays! And there will be more weekend trips coming up, with some four dear fandom friends visiting me over the next couple of months, starting with Linda60 next week. Really, I have had my share of holidays this year.…

The Fan A to Z – #B

First leg of the journey done, I arrived yesterday in Northern Germany. Boy, that was a rough landing… felt as if the pilot crashed the undercarriage of the plane. After my favourite food (white asparagus with smoked ham and new potatoes *waves at Servetus*) I am now sitting on the terrace. It’s considerably cooled down since…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #18

At the end of April, Richard was in England for a promo shoot for his upcoming audio book Their Lost Daughters. There was a BTS clip posted on photographer Dan Kennedy’s Instagram Stories feed. (Unfortunately, IG Stories have an expiry date, so the clip is not visible/searchable anymore. But fellow fan Lexi archived it here.) Now…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #17

Before I launch into the link list – you might have already guessed why I am late with the round-up today. Yes, I have been more or less glued to the TV/internet all day, waiting for the final tallies in the abortion referendum coming in. The good news: It is a landslide triumph for the…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #6

Oh wow. All that audio goodness. Well, or let’s just say: “all that audio”. This was a week of rich pickings, with highs and lows. I still haven’t continued listening to Wanderlust, and since I can not decide whether I want a digital download or a tangible CD, I haven’t listened to The Martian Invasion of…

On Hearing Richard

I was going to post my contribution to the Mystery Blogger Award today, but have decided that I must record my thoughts on yesterday’s podcast by Christopher Maynard of Following Films with Richard Armitage. I am going to lean far out of the metaphorical window here and say that it was a near-perfect interview. And…
