RA dictionRAy – Our Words and Pictures project

Thanks so much for all your wonderful contributions for our words & pictures collaboration. You did such a great job on your RAssignment. May I have your autogRAph? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our project is complete! This was a lot of fun to assemble. First I made a Richard Armitage dictionary.ย  Here are the front and back cover of the dictionary. Please click for full size.


Then I turned your words and pictures into dictionary pages.ย  Those were then incorporated into a fanvideo.

Here’s the final result of our project:

EDIT: The audio had to be swapped, so the YouTube version has a jazz soundtrack.

EDIT: If you want to watch with the original electronica soundtrack, here’s the video on Vimeo:

I wasn’t sure what I was going do with your words and pictures when I posted our challenge but I had a few ideas. Then I accidentally came across this video template. Had I known in advance, I would’ve solicited your input for the blurbs.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you enjoy our project! If you would like to download the video in MP4 format, here’s the link: group dictionary project video.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your great contributions.ย  I wish you a lovely weekend.ย  See you next week!ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

EDIT: I have set the Vimeo video to be downloadable, and it’s in high resolution MPEG format so you can actually read the text.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Here’s the link again: http://vimeo.com/39456617. You may need to join or log into Vimeo to access the download link though.

    Sweet! I love it. Looks fabulous, wish I really could buy it.

    • bccmee says:

      @Snicker’s Mom: Hehe, thanks! I wonder if some enterprising soul would ever write a Richard Armitage dictionary. Thanks for your contribution!

  2. Sheepa says:

    I want it!!!! One for every room!

  3. IntownWriter says:

    I just can’t take my eyes off the pictures long enough to read the copy… But I’m sure it’s brilliant!

    • bccmee says:

      @IntownWriter: *sigh* I know what you mean! Whenever a Richard Article print interview is published, I can’t tear my eyes from the pictures to read the words, LOL!

  4. This is awesome! It’s a shame it’s not real (but then the lawyers would spoil all the fun). Great work!

    Will we get a chance to read each of the pages?

    • bccmee says:

      @Mrs. E. B. Darcy: Hmm… I wonder if book lawyers are as bad as music lawyers, LOL. As for reading the pages, I created them in the video program so I can’t easily post them individually. However, I have since made a high-quality download link available on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/39456617. ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. beengizzied says:

    Now I know how Samuel Johnson must have felt. Being a co-author of a dictionary, such an authoritative reference, is such a buzz. Perhaps it will be nominated for “Best Dictionary”
    Then you can turn it into an App and we can all be rolling in royalties. OMG!

    • bccmee says:

      @beengizzied: Oh that’s a brilliant idea! Now you’ve got me thinking of actually making that app! ๐Ÿ˜€ What a treat that would be. Thanks for your contributions!

  6. Mamma_T says:

    Great work! ๐Ÿ™‚
    How can I read this Dictionary? Need to improve my vocabulARy
    xx M_T

  7. ItsJSforMe says:

    Wahhhh!!! I want a dictionary like that!!! I have one that is similar, but not so well adorned. I think this one would be more entertaining, and ever so much more worthwhile!!!

    Fantastic work, bccmee, and thanks to all who contributed!!

  8. april73 says:

    • bccmee says:

      @Luciana: LOL re: pRActice. ๐Ÿ˜€ I am delighted at the number of non-English words submitted too. We can all become multilingual. Thanks for your contribution!

  14. I can’t wait for my copy! Eat your heart out Merriam-Webster!

    Wonderful work Bccmee and everyone! Love it!

  15. cdoart says:

    Bccmee, you are a genius. How did you get RA under contract, to do the audio book in the near future ? ;o) You really make fan-girl dreams become reality ;o)
    I love your ideas and creative teaser texts !!! Thank you, bccmee!!!

    • bccmee says:

      @cdoart: I’m delighted you enjoyed our team effort. How hilarious if Richard Armitage actually narrated a dictionary, LOL! Thanks so much for your lovely contributions!

  16. Fabi says:

    Enjoy? I loved it!
    Thank you, Bccmee, and all writers! Fantastic collective work.

    • bccmee says:

      @Fabi: *giggle* I would love to hear a new audiobook read by RA. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you very much for your Portuguese and English contributions!

  17. LOL! I want to read the whole thing! ๐Ÿ˜€

      @Ana Cris: I’m so delighted you enjoyed our collaboration! Thanks very much for your contribution. Your “body art” phrase fits nicely with your excellent and well-researched blogpost. ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Yay!! Some obsessive people (not me of course) MIGHT have paused each frame in order to read the amazing individual contributions. Can you imagine? Some fans are cRAzy! Geesh! LOL! So impressed with your work and everyone’s amazing submissions! โค

    • bccmee says:

      @Margie: LOL, I’m guilty of the trying to catch each word too. ๐Ÿ˜€ The submissions are so clever and I couldn’t have thought them up myself in a million years. Thanks so much for your contribution too!

  21. Bettina Cheim says:

    Now that is a bedside book for me! Fun project Bccmee! We all appreciate your hard work to make our days brighter! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • bccmee says:

      @Bettina: Have to confess, I would definitely keep a copy of this book by my bed if this dictionary was real. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’d want this within reach wherever I went, LOL! Thank you kindly for your contributions!

  22. jazzbaby1 says:

    Hilarious! You topped yourself again, B!

  23. jeanniegisborne says:

    I wouldbe great if we actually had this printed up. All those wnderful pictures of Richard with the words and their meanigs rigt there fro easy refernce ๐Ÿ™‚

    • bccmee says:

  24. vec170203 says:

    Oh, I want one!!! Obviously, I will need also the audio book and practical exercises. =) Thanks to your efforts, my English will improve a lot ….

    • bccmee says:

      @vec170203: We could learn a lot of Richard Armitage-related words together in several languages, LOL! Thanks for your kind words of support!

  25. OMG Bccmee!
    This turned out fantastically! I want this dictionary! Is there any way for us to actually download the pages of words and pictures so that we can enjoy them more slowly? I have goofy eyes.
    Thanks and Cheers! Grati ;->

  26. Jonia says:

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! We need something like that for this wonderful group of “well educated women” ;D

  27. Jonia says:


  28. megs says:

    Bccmee, thank you and everyone who contributed; this is absolutely brilliant!!!!
    Have to watch over and over again to catch all the wonderful details.
    Yes, I want one too! A must-have and compulsory reading from now on.
    Oh, and can I have my copy signed, please? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • bccmee says:

      @megs: Thank you very much for your kind words of support! It’s a lot of fun to work together as a team in the Richard Armitage community. ๐Ÿ˜€

  29. Brooke says:

    I love this project. It is a really good idea. I really liked the comment that said, “Read this every day until it’s worn out. Then buy a new copy.” Hehe.
    The dictionary is good not just for those who are cRAzy for RA. It’s good when one is cRAving some RA time.

  30. Thaรญs says:

    Wow! This is awesome!!! Everything’s amazing about it: the cover, the layout, the presentation itself… I just adore it!!! I’d never get tired of reading it! Thanks Bccmee and everybody who was part of this project! ๐Ÿ˜€

  39. Emma says:

  40. Fantastic!! I’ll learn every word by heart if I had this dictionary! (*^^)v

  46. Nadia says:

    I want it !!!!!

  47. If only we could really buy it ! You’re amazing ๐Ÿ˜€

  48. sloan says:

    This is great fun. It would be a hoot to have a hard copy. Tks for the laughter!

  49. lucylou says:

    Can this please be someone’s next project to turn it from online reality to actual reality. I would love a hard copy too. An RA publishing company would have many interested investors.
    Bccmee you are so wise to know that no RA dictionary would be complete without pictures as we are never too old for picture prompts. Thank you.

    • bccmee says:

      @lucylou: I’m not sure if anyone is actually going to make a hard copy book a reality but they are welcome to do so. ๐Ÿ™‚ I lack the time but since this is a group project, I do not “own” the idea! LOL re: the pictures. I totally agree, they are a necessity to illustrate the finer points of the vocabulary. ๐Ÿ˜‰
