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…

Blog Searches

Looking for something to write about, I decided to do a little WordPress search again – inspired by two blog posts that I had seen on Twitter yesterday. First Heather linked this (Click on the link within the tweet and you will get to the blog post she quotes from): LOL! “All that said, the…

2017 Armitage Weekly Roundup #28

How’s the weekend progressing for you guys? We have had a big family event yesterday with visitors from England and Scotland, and so I have been distracted and delayed for a bit. Sorry. With Pilgrimage finally reaching cinemas in the US, so many reviews and interviews have been published the last couple of days. The most…

RA Pocket Shrine 138/? – Scar(r)ed

Yesterday was a bank holiday in Ireland. While Mr Guylty and daughter went off on a hike in the beautiful Irish scenery, guess what I did? Yep, I pleaded “work” – and then settled in for a big shrining session. After all, the Birthday Auctions are coming up, soon. T -12! Amazing what you can…

Monday Mirth: Where Pilgrimage Got Its Look

Sadly, up until recently, my daughter’s geekdom had a massive gap. Although a big fan of all things Monty Python, she had not seen Monty Python and The Holy Grail yet. Aside: For a change, I like the German title of the film much better. It is called Die Ritter der Kokosnuss (The Knights of the Coconut). This…

2017 Armitage Weekly Round-up #26

Good news almost every day. I had a lovely e-mail yesterday from a regular commenter and auction contributor who has promised a shipment of fan items for the auctions. I was gobsmacked because I hadn’t expected any item donations coming in – after all I hadn’t even asked – but there she is, thinking on…

2017 Armitage Weekly Round-up #25

Weeks later… Hello everyone! So sorry it has taken yet another weekend before I am getting to compile the round-up. Back in Ireland for a week, but with the weather beautiful, we set off to the sunny Southeast of the country. We actually went to Co. Waterford – a name that might be familiar to…

Interesting Insights from a New Armitage Interview

This was exactly the thing that I needed to get back into blogging after the holiday. What a pleasant surprise to come across this Armitage interview by Den of Geek, tweeted via RAnet, this morning. Especially as there were some bits and pieces in there where I really pricked up my ears, especially when my…

Back!

Three weeks have passed since the last post – and after touching back down on Irish soil last night, the objective today was to catch up with all things fandom. A Castlevania review is waiting to be written, my holiday reading (jealously guarded by Pop!Thorin, see right) warrants some mention, and above all, plenty of interesting…
