Hello and happy Richard Armitage Day. What an incredibly exciting year it’s been! Have you seen Into the Storm yet? I saw it once with a friend and may see it again with my sister this weekend. Do you think it’ll be made into a trilogy? ;-)
This year I had a little LOT of fun making a new fan video in honor of Richard Armitage’s 43rd birthday. I played around quite a bit and had a blast making it!
As a bonus, below is a wallpaper for those of you who are interested in The Crucible. Click for full size (1600 x 900 pixels). The font turned out looking like metal. I just kept pressing buttons in Photoshop and then stopped when it looked cool! This was uploaded on my Tumblr blog where I occasionally post creations.
Question: What are you doing this weekend? Any special plans?
Surprise! How’s it going? I sure missed you. What’s new? Any excitement?
This looks like fun!
In honor of Richard Armitage’s 42nd birthday, I created a fan video. I’d like to give special thanks to my friend ItsJSforMe for all her help and encouragement. She also provided the image in my fanvideo at 3:47. Check out the fun times on her blog. ItsJSforMe posted a wild and wonderful photo essay series entitled MI6: Mission ImPortable featuring John Porter, my favorite Richard Armitage character.
Also, most of my other images came from RichardArmitageNet.Com. I always click through the Amazon links so a commission is donated to charity.
I have been getting lots of lovely queries and just want to let everyone know all is well in my life. I’m super crazy busy and have not had the time to spend on this blog or even keep up with Richard Armitage news. It’s doubtful I will be posting again but wanted to touch bases with you. This blog has been a lot of fun because of you so I wanted to give a big thanks for all your support and your contributions. This blog will not be deleted because there are lots of collaborative projects and Richard Armitage interviews for new and old fans alike.
Since I don’t want to make this post about me, how are you doing? Hope you’re well! Feel free to share any news you wish. :D
I really wanted to make a birthday fanvideo. Due to time constraints, I used a template for this video/slideshow. :) Massive thanks to ItsJSforMe and RichardArmitageNet.Com for the images used along with those from my own stash. Also, the song was recommended by Tink_Jane. Someday I plan to make a full-length fanvideo when my schedule allows. Wish me luck, LOL!
Here’s my contribution to the birthday festivities:
Oh wow this was a fun project to piece together. Thanks again for your excellent contributions!
For this collaboration, I took your words and pictures and created two “Magnetic Poetry” games in Flash. Many of my friends would have these magnetic words on their refrigerators. If you are not familiar with this game, you can see it here: Magnetic Poetry Kit. It retails for $19.95 but you can play a Richard Armitage version for free! Since I couldn’t do this without you, I pass along the savings, LOL! :D
For no particular reason, I made a screencap of Richard Armitage as Ricky Deeming:
Richard Armitage as Ricky Deeming – screencap mine
Now it’s time for your games. I gladly made two of them because of the overwhelming response. Since these are Flash games, you will be redirected to my external webhosting site. Also, they will not play on iPods, iPhones or iPads as you may already know. Please click the image or text links below to play.
Hello again, how’s it going? Did you have a nice week? I’m craving cake, LOL! :P
It’s time for our August collaborative challenge, woohoo!
I have plans for an activity and would love your input. If you’re willing and able to help, you can contribute the following:
A link to a picture of Richard Armitage or one of his characters.
A sentence or two by or about Richard Armitage or one of his characters. You can make one up or use one from any source, such as a magazine article or a video interview.
The image and text need not be related. Also, you may make multiple submissions and one will be chosen. Please remember that whether or not you have participated before, you are always warmly welcome to join in!
After checking my calendar, it was all filled up for the month of August so I’ll post our collaborative challenge next week. However, I couldn’t resist doing two polls today! I’ve been conjecturing and wondering a few things so I thought it would be fun to share my questions with you.
Some of you have expressed a preference among Richard Armitage in a beard, stubble or the clean-shaven look. Well I have been thinking about what type of facial hair Richard Armitage’s character will have in the tornado movie which is now filming in Detroit.
