17th of November = the 1st of PortEmber

♥  Welcome to PortEmber! ♥

Today’s inspired screencap choice comes to us from the brilliant mind of tyme4t.  Thank you kindly, tyme4t! 😛  Here is the lovely John Porter as portrayed by Richard Armitage in Chris Ryan’s Strike Back.

Richard Armitage as John Porter

Screencap courtesy of RichardArmitageNet.Com

Also, massive thanks to RichardArmitageNet.Com for all the very high quality screencaps in their Strike Back Gallery and interviews on their Strike Back Downloads page.

Apparently, MI-6 doesn’t pay well enough for John Porter to afford a shirt.  Or are there other forces at work?

Whatever the case may be, I have created a plethora of graphics from this screencap.

I created my my first-ever Flash video!  I was influenced by one of my facebook friends who posted a very clever clock so I decided to try my hand.   Since Flash is not allowed on my blog, I am linking to a free website I am using to host my Flash projects.  I may be moving to another blog server, but since that will take a bit of planning, this will suffice for now.

You can click the text link or the clock to be taken to the Flash animation on my new website I set up for Flash animations:  http://fanvideos.net46.net/jp_large_clock.html


Click to go to Flash video

I successfully tested it in my Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers so I hope it works for you.  Unfortunately, Flash will not play on iProducts such as iPods, iPads and iPhones.  However, not to worry because there’s more!  😀

I also created an animated gif of John Porter in a state of undress:

Tyme for not being dressed

The caption is “Too early to be dressed.”

And an animated signature file:

Richard Armitage as John Porter - No Time to Dress

The caption is “Whatever the time, it’s too early to be dressed.”

Finally, I also made a wallpaper.  This one is not animated, LOL! Click for full size (1920 x 1080 pixels).

John Porter not time to dress wallpaper

I appreciate your participation, tyme4t!

ANNOUNCEMENT: Now that I am learning Flash, you can suggest a song or a sound bite. There are a few spaces left if you would like to participate in the PortEmber challenge. And if you have already submitted for either PortEmber or The 12 Days of Guyness, please contact me if you have any song or sound suggestions. 🙂 I can’t promise I will use them, but there is a possibility.

By the way, if you are looking for a free website, I’m very happy so far with 000webhosts.com.  Check them out!  I might export my blog over there so I can have my Flash animations and my graphics in one place.  🙂

Happy Thursday to you all! See you tomorrow. 😀

P.S. Now that the holidays are approaching, if you are doing any shopping at Amazon US or Amazon UK, if you order through one the associate links on RichardArmitageNet.Com, a commission will be donated to charity! Remember, your purchase need not be Richard Armitage related.  😀

    Great job Bccmee, I love it !!! 🙂

  2. Monica says:

    OMG, need an ice bath….you’re the best!

  3. LOL! “Too early to be dressed” Love it and agree … whatever the time 😉
    I couldn’t see the flash video 😦 it keeps telling me that ” … checking this website for malicious content” as if! I’ll have to try again later 🙂
    As always, great job Bcc! *hugs*

    • bccmee says:

      @Ana Cristina: Hope you have better luck later later with the Flash animation. That is one of the disadvantages of Flash files; they are sometimes blocked by security software. I’m glad you enjoyed the other graphics! They’re all very similar but I couldn’t stop myself, LOL!

      • Yes! Yes! I finally saw it!!! It’s amazing 😉 However, I think I should watch it later again, and at different times of the day to confirm if that caption is accurate 😉
        P.S. Do us all a favour Bcc: Don’t stop 😀

        • bccmee says:

          @Ana Cristina: I’m delighted you were able to see the clock in action. I see no signs of stopping my obsession, by the way. Thanks for your lovely comments!

  4. Love it B! I’m watching Strike Back again (Yay, my DVD player on my comp is working!) and am falling in love with JP, but he’ll never replace Guy:) Sorry I missed out on picking for the 12 days of Guynenss:(

    • bccmee says:

      @jeanniegisborne: So glad you are watching Strike Back. I was getting distracted watching clips and it’s a wonder I finished any graphics today, LOL! Thanks so much for your comment. 🙂

  5. Ania says:

    Bccmee, I really love it!. However still I can’t take my eyes off of Flash animation, even didn’t think that the clock in the animation may indicate an hour in line with my watch. LOL!
    I’m really impressed. 🙂

  6. Teuchter says:

    Thank you Bccmee!!! What a great way to check the time this morning! 🙂 I’d love to know how it’s done but it is totally in sync with my computer time so I know it’s accurate. But who cares! Anytime is a good time to gaze upon our lovely John Porter. – SND to my way of thinking!! TPTB who made this film knew that even if this genre of film might not be to the liking of some women that we would be glued to our screens just to catch a glimpse of shirtless John, shallow as that might be!! 🙂 Seriously though, there is SO much more to that character than just looks – just as there is to the incredibly talented man who portrayed him. JP will always be one of my favourite RA chaRActers. Oh dear!! Now look what you made me do!! If i don’t drag myself away from all this gorgeousness and hop in the shower I’m going to be late!! I think it will have to be a cool one!! 😉

    • bccmee says:

      @Teuchter: You’re most welcome! The clock uses a script with the command line “var now:Date;” which picks up the time on the computer’s clock. And I totally agree that the creative team behind Chris Ryan’s Strike Back knew what they were about when they had John Porter take his shirt off, LOL! I hope you weren’t late for anything. 🙂 Thanks so much for you comment!

  7. Ana Cris says:

    Wow, Bcc,
    That was so cool! But I had to look several times to notice the movement of the watch! There were big distractions on the way!

  8. I was lucky enough to view your masterpiece before leaving for work.
    Oh dear, my afternoon was much better!
    My fav is the wallpaper, even if I could never use for my notebook as it’s rated M/R.
    I agree, it is too early to get dressed, better if Porter never get dressed!

  9. Lady Prisca says:

    Bccmee I love all that you have done with this capture.
    I loooooooove the flash animation , so elegant.
    The animated gif is too hot to let me be wise. I absolutely love the face’s expressions of Richard , he is just adoRAble (I love his body’s expression too L.O.L.).
    The wall paper is charming : the colours and the light make it sweet (as sweet as his skin seem to be)
    I know what I’ll dream about tonight…certainly I’ll be very deceived tomorrow to not find this nice gentleman by my side at the waking up.

    One little question : can a flash animation be used as a wall paper? (Sorry if my question is stupid)

    • bccmee says:

      @Lady Prisca: He does shine like the sun! ♥

      Not a silly question at all. As far as I know, Flash animations cannot be used as computer wallpapers. There are ways to have animated wallpapers, though, but they require the installation of a software program, such as Dreamscene. I’ve never tried it though so I haven’t tested it out. 🙂

      Thanks so much for your lovely comment!

  10. Gratiana says:

    Hi Bccmee,
    Great flash and gif, etc. With a clock like that, who would want to tell JP that it’s time to get up and dressed? Not I.

    In fact, let’s not. I say we institute, “Richard Armitage Daylight Prevention Time” (RADPT)–somewhat akin to the notion of “Daylight Savings Time” in the U.S. My reasoning is that if it is not daylight, JP won’t be compelled to clothe his manly muscular torso. Sighhhh!

    I’m being a silly goose, I know. But I blame it on the perimenopausal hormones surging through me. Ha!

    I can’t wait to see tomorrow’s offering.

    Cheers! Grati

    • bccmee says:

      @Gratiana: I wouldn’t dream of telling John Porter that it’s time to get dressed either, LOL! I think that’s probably a universal feeling. 😛

      Yes, we should submit your idea for RADPT to the authorities as soon as possible, LOL!

  11. Dhana says:

    Outstanding work, bccmee! Although I am sure you do not consider playing with JP *work*. 😀

  12. Carolyn says:

    Awesome graphics! I love the clock! I love it all!

  13. kathryngaul says:

    WOW, bccmee…that clock even works in Australia! How on earth did you do that? I’m extremely impressed.

  14. kathryngaul says:

    BTW it’s 8.10am Friday

  15. kathryngaul says:

    We’re on Daylight Saving Time now

    • bccmee says:

      @kathryngaul: This is joke I read online, with a modification: “John Porter doesn’t worry about changing his clock twice a year for daylight savings time. The sun rises and sets when Porter tells it to.”

  16. kathryngaul says:

    Poor Porter…..that daylight is making him squint! He obviously can’t stand glare…just like me! “Where are my sunnies?”
    “Why worry, John…. just come back to bed, Darling!” 😉 🙂

  17. jules says:

    It’s official I’m the biggest softie…. you’ve just brought tears to my eyes…I can now look at this most gorgeous clock every minute of the day…who needs Big Ben when we have Big Big John Porter…tick tock..tick tock …time for more John Porter…luv you ‘B’ xxx

    • bccmee says:

      @jules: ROTFL! I’ve seen Big Ben and it’s beautifully built, but you’re right, not as lovely as our John Porter! ♥

      It’s always Porter o’clock! *ding dong* He certainly rings my bell!

  18. mersguy says:

    John Porter bathed in morning sunshine……..goose bumps!!!!
    Great work Bccmee, you are the master!
    Fantastic way to start my morning, albeit Porter-less LOL

  19. Elaine says:

    Great job! I have to agree with @mersguy: goose bumps, indeed!

  20. Summer says:

    Really awesome! Will have to check your flash later on computer as I’m using an apple products at the moment LOL
    Thank you! 😀

  21. Extraordinary work,Bcc.The clock works perfectly. I love the caption,very creative.YOU ARE.A GENIUS!
    Just a question. How can we save it in our pc, to see the time … I mean J. P hours ter?

    • bccmee says:

      @Tereza: That’s very sweet of you to say, but I have to confess I used a tutorial, LOL!

      The underlying Flash file, “jp_large_clock.swf” can be extracted and opened in the browser, but that can be a little complicated. If you have internet always on, you can just keep the web page open till you get bored. 😀

      Thank you very much for your comment.

  22. Thanks bccmee. Great work! Can’t believe this is your first try!
    And thank you also for the animated gif and the sig.
    What a treat for a chilly November day!

    • bccmee says:

      @grendel’s mum: Again, I thank you for your continued support. I really appreciate you featuring my little graphics on your blog!

      I forgot it was chilly with hot John Porter around, LOL!

      • Teuchter says:

        It’s a good thing we do have “hot John Porter around”!! We had a bit of SNOW yesterday and last night – quite early for this area – and it is actually still on the ground and on the roofs of the houses I can see from my window! Brrrrr! I believe he could actually save on our heating bills! Just looking at him is enough to warm us up!!! 😉

        • bccmee says:

          @Teuchter: I wonder what this winter brings! We’d all better lay in a big supply of hot chocolate and Richard Armitage DVDs. 🙂

  23. fitzg says:

    Artistic eye and technical ability is going to project your career into high gear, bccmee. Your “focus group” here has no doubt of it!

    • Elaine says:

      @fitzg That’s what we are alright a “focus(ed) group”! Sounds very professional and sensible – as if! @bccmee, you keep us smiling and entertained and we love it.

    • bccmee says:

      @fitzg: Let me know if you hear of any job openings for a “Richard Armitage graphics specialist” and I’ll redouble my efforts to expand my skillset, LOL! Thanks very much for your generous comment. 🙂

  24. tyme4t says:

    Time in real life did not allow me to properly acknowledge these FANtastic works!
    Although I didn’t really notice the clock until I could peel my eyes of JP/RA with no shirt….goodness he has lovely shoulders 🙂 ….the clock is really cool! Love the captions and soooooooooooo looking forward to the rest of the month.

    Must always make time in real life to enjoy RA!

    • bccmee says:

      @tyme4t: I understand what you mean about real-life getting in the way of RA life, LOL! Oh the shoulders smolder! *sigh* So delighted you enjoyed the Flash clock. 😀 Thanks ever so much for participating in the challenge! *HUGS*
