Happy birthday to Richard Armitage!

I’ve been super crazy busy lately but wanted to make a post in honor of the birthday boy.

First, here’s an image you’ve probably seen by now. Thorin Oakenshield is certainly a sexy dwarf! ♥

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:

Richard Armitage 41st birthday video

EDIT: Here’s the birthday video on vimeo in case YouTube blocked it in your country:

There are lots of great quotes that could be used inside a birthday card. Here’s one I found:

Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.
– Jennifer Yane

Can you find any others? Or make up your own birthday quote?

    Beautiful vid! A thing I appreciate about your work – perfectly paced visual adapting to music.
    Happy Birthday, Mr. A! And enjoy the week, RA Supporters!

    • bccmee says:

      @fitzg: Aw, you’re too kind! I had pages of notes for a “homemade” birthday video but had to go with store-bought, LOL! Thanks for your lovely comment. 🙂

  5. Judit says:

    Hi Bcc! I enjoyed your vid immensely and I never would have guessed it was prepared using a “template”! I loved the ghostbusters idea at the end! Gerry’s scream and Dr.Track in his “ghostbuster outfit”- hilarious!! I agree with Fitzg, your vids are always perfectly paced! Congrats and thank you!

    • bccmee says:

      @Judit: Hehe, the Ghostbuters bit took awhile because I made that part from scratch. Glad you liked the slideshow too! Thanks so much for your lovely comment!

  6. Judit says:

    Ah and I love that new publicity still of Thorin! Swoonworthy or what???

  7. A Scattering says:

    He’s holding the key to our hearts! Didn’t you have a “birthday suit” photo to use?!
    Bccmee, the birthday video is excellent- love the transitions, fRAmes, backgrounds, hunky man etc. You are surely a wizard.

    Have a great day everyone and raise a glass or cuppa to our favorite dwarf, commando, doctor, accountant, business owner and actor.

    • bccmee says:

      @A Scattering: That’s so true re: key to our hearts! ♥ Um, I would need to password protect a “birthday suit” video, LOL! It’s such a pleasure to see and play with pictures and clips of Richard Armitage. 😀 Thanks very much for your comment.

  8. A Scattering says:

    Forgot to request the follow-ups the first time!

  9. Chrissy says:

    Thanks for the wonderful video bccmee – and I loved the Ghost Busters twist at the end (I’ll remember that next time I watch GH!!

    Oh …and a very happy birthday to the gorgeous Richard Armitage. Hope the next year brings even greater things xxxx

  10. Joanna says:

    Hahaha!…what a tasty tReAt, Bccmee! Thanks!:D
    Long live RA!!!

  11. phylly3 says:

    Loved the slide show — but the mini vid at the end really killed me!! Good thing the kids aren’t back at school here yet because I don’t think I could get away with laughing so hard in a library any other time!
    I would love to see a compilation of all the ending bits to your videos but I could never watch it at work.
    Happy Armitage Day, bccmee!

    • bccmee says:

      @phylly3: Haha, glad you enjoyed the silly ending. 😀 I’ve considered a collection of surprise endings. I think they’re more popular than my actual videos, which doesn’t bother me, LOL! Thanks for your lovely comment.

  12. I´m still with my open mouth ,Bcc. Your creativity doesn´t have limits. Fantastic video and what an original idea of including those vicar of Dibley scenes and Dr Track as a Ghost buster.I was very cool. Congratulations. And Happy BiRthdAy, adorable Richard!

    • bccmee says:

      @Tereza: Richard Armitage is a beautiful sight! Perhaps someday I’ll finish the video I intended for the birthday, but luckily I had a backup plan, LOL! Thanks so much for your sweet comment. 😀

  13. vec170203 says:

    Wonderful video as usual! Thanks Bccmee for sharing with us.
    happy Armitage Day! 🙂

  14. ItsJSforMe says:

    ♥Love♥ it Bccmee!!!!!! I always enjoy your surprise endings! 😀

  15. Luciana says:

    What calls my attention is that it’s Richard’s birthday, but we get the gifs!!! This is a really lovely video!! Thank you, Bcc!! 😉

  17. jasrangoon says:

    Lovely vid, bccmee! Especially like the spoof on Ghost Busters at the end. Those orange suits from The Golden Hour were perfect for that!

    • bccmee says:

      @jasrangoon: I have long thought of Ghostbusters when I’ve seen Dr. Track and his colleagues wearing their getups, LOL! Thanks for your comment. 🙂

  18. smitkit says:

    Aw, that’s a fab video, thanks B! Love the surprise ending – how perfectly did that clip from TGH fit in with the Ghosbusters theme?

    Happy RA’s Birthday/Armitage Day, everyone!

  19. mariana says:

    Bccmee, you SO ROCK!! I nearly choked on my lunch at the very unexpected Ghostbuster hilarity!!! Bless you & Bless our Mr. Armitage!

  22. Loved the video–and it’s “surprise” ending! Cheers! ;->

  23. Ania says:

    • bccmee says:

      @titianminx: That song was a really nice find. Can’t make any promises, but I hope to make a full-length video with that music. 🙂 Thanks for your comment! Best wishes to you, too.

  25. Thanks so much for the fabulous video! 
    Richard is lucky to have an artistic fan like you!

  26. cdoart says:

    Great birthday video, Bcc Mee!

  29. tannni says:

    This is wonderful, video! Fabulous artwork! I love this, bccmee.

  30. beengizzied says:

    Brilliant birthday buzz bccmee.
    Here’s my birthday card suggestion. It might be useful for anyone navigating their 40’s:
    49 you’re in decline
    48 it’s getting late
    47 big gap to Heaven [phew!]
    46 can still learn new tricks
    45 yay! Alive!
    44 and still fitting through the door
    43 [“click”] that can’t be your knee?
    42 you still look new
    41 you’re far from done

  31. Holliday says:

    Happy birthday to Richard!
    Loved your birthday video. The Ghostbusters bit at the end was awesome.

    “They say that life begins at forty. Well, I don’t know who “they” are, but I say we go find them and kick the snot out of them for spreading vicious rumors.” (me)

  32. Happy Armitage Day! 🙂

  33. katie70 says:

    Loved the video and am still smiling. Happy birthday Richard and Happy Armitage day to all.

  34. jazzbaby1 says:

    LOL…you know, Bill Murray isn’t doing the most recent Ghost Busters…they might need someone…

    • bccmee says:

      @jazzbaby1: Actually I didn’t know about Bill Murray stepping down from the Ghostbusters. 😮 That would be brilliant to see RA in the 3rd part of another trilogy, LOL! 😀

  35. Mezz says:

    Wonderful video B! I learnt very early on that your videos had a brilliant twist at the end, and this was no exception. Those orange jumpsuits look like they were made for the part. 🙂

  36. Lady Prisca says:

    Brilliant vido Bccmee! and the Ra ghost busters is hilarious. Bravo!

  37. mariana says:

    Bccmee, your video has a new admirer; he’s my 2 years 8 month old grandson. Yesterday I was watching at your video. My grandson whose attention was called by the melody, entered in my chamber with a big smile on his face, looked at the video, danced a little, and said (in Romanian, of course): amusing! I’m not shure if he knows what “amusing” means but he really liked this video.
    Congratulations again!

  38. debra says:

    LOL!! FABULOUS Birthday video, bccmee! Great song, too!
    I loved the Ghostbusters/Dr. Track ending! So funny!!

  39. Brooke says:

    This is one of the best videos for RA that I have seen. It was beautifully done, Bccmee. I know I say this stuff every time, but it’s true! I admire those with a great mind for detail and craftsmanship. I wish RA would see this because he would love it.

  40. Brooke says:

    Bccmee, I grew up with the Ghostbusters movies and obviously I still love the song. Thanks for including it. It helped to make it more fun and interesting.

    • bccmee says:

      @Brooke: Ghostbusters is a favorite movie of mine! I just rewatched it. 😀

      • Brooke says:

        When we watch the special effects, it’s easy to be thankful that special effects have improved so much since the 1980s. I used to play with the toy Ghostbuster headquarters that was an old fire house. I like to see RA run around on screen and try different roles. The role might be wrong for him, but he might enjoy it.

  41. mariana says:

    Now, I’m very disappointed ! can’t see no more the video! They said it is blocked in my country “on copyright rights”!

  42. Joanna says:

    Hi Mariana!..they blocked it in my country too.:(

  45. Ana Cris says:

    Hi, Bcc,
    I miss you. There any project to look forward to? :0)

    • bccmee says:

      @Ana Cris: Thanks for your sweet supportive note! I’m unsure when I’ll have the chance to post another challenge. I have plenty of ideas, but I don’t have the time right now. *sigh*

  46. Thais says:

    Hi, Bccmee! I’ve been quite busy too! OMG! The video is so beautiful! I just loved it! And that ending!?! Awesome!!! Thanks for sharing!

    • bccmee says:

      @cocobiol: Thanks for your sweet comment! It’s difficult to believe that Richard Armitage will be celebrating another birthday next month. I wonder what’s in store!
