Surprise Birthday Party!

Happy birthday to Richard Armitage

How to tell if you’re a Richard Armitage admirer

Surprise! How’s it going? I sure missed you. What’s new? Any excitement?

Desolation of Smaug

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.

Without further ado, here is your fan video:

By the way, if you would like a transcript of the text used on the screen, you can find it over on YouTube in the video description.

Question: What are some other signs that you’re a Richard Armitage admirer?

  14. Love4ot says:

    Oh my gosh, that was so fun! The magazines were just incredible, if only…

  15. Kitty says:

    I love it! I actually had tingles during the “spot him in a group pic” segment. It’s so good to “hear” from you. Hope you’re well. I miss your presence in the RAFN. Hugs.

  16. I was wondering if a vid was to make an appearance! You never fail to astound; thought for a minute Batman graphic might appear too LOL

    • bccmee says:

      @Fanny: Well I wasn’t sure I’d get it done, but I made a last-minute push and here is the result. Thanks for your comment. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future!

  17. jasrangoon says:

    This was absolutely brilliant, bccmee!

  18. grendel'smum says:

  19. jazzbaby1 says:

    Perfect! Now just hold still till I get this lasso swinging…

  20. Servetus says:

    Whoa, what an Armitage Day present! What jazzy said. How can we keep you around?

  21. Anonymous says:

    Hello! So happy to see you back. :D.

    So excited that I haven’t watched your video yet. 😛

    Hope you are well. 🙂 *hugs*

  22. vec170203 says:

    Hi Bccmee, it’s lovely to see you back! Thanks for another great video. ♥

  23. Ania says:

    OMG! This video is absolutely fantastic! ❤ Thanks for the great surprise! So good to see you back, Bccmee! :*

  24. Laure says:

    It’s great to see you bccmee, we missed you. What a great job on this video, it is beautiful, bravo!

  25. judiang says:

    I love love LOVE this video. Looks like A LOT of work. Betcha only slapped it together in an hour. 😉 Glad to see you back. Hope you’re staying for a while….

    • bccmee says:

      @judiang: LOL! Truth be told, it took about a day for each piece and then 3 days to tie it all together. It’ll never be perfect but at least it’s DONE! 😀

  26. Teuchter says:

    I’ve missed you so much but what a fantastic way to come back!! I was spellbound through the whole video and could hardly wait to see your signature “little clip at the end”! 😉 You have excelled yourself with this one! I too would love to see him on the cover of *every* magazine but I’m sure the darling man would hate it! 😦 How I wish he could see this video though – and who knows, maybe someone will show it to him!! We can only hope. 😀

    • bccmee says:

      @Teuchter: You know, I never paused long enough to realize he wouldn’t really cotton to the idea of being on every magazine cover. Reminds me of the scene in Notting Hill when Hugh Grant’s character says he’s a reporter from Horse & Hound magazine! Now that is a magazine I’d love to see with Richard Armitage on the cover! Thanks for the warm welcome back! 😀

      • Teuchter says:

        Very happy you didn’t pause before you put him on the front of all those mags!! Horse and Hound? Now your talking! That *would* be worth seeing! LOL 😉

        • bccmee says:

          @Teuchter: Now my imagination is running RAmpant! I can’t get it out of my head, aaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!

        • Teuchter says:

          *falls over laughing* 😀 😀

          So much to LOVE in this video! I find something new *every* time I watch. You are amazing!!

        • bccmee says:

          @Teuchter: Strangely enough, I find new things too. Maybe I was in a trance when I made the video, LOL!

  27. Oh my Guy! That was absolutely wonderful. Of course, I loved “Guy of Thrones”. But I waited to the absolute end because you always sneak something in there and I was not disappointed. LUCAS! That was perfect! Nice to see you again, B. Hope you come back to do more!

    • bccmee says:

      @jeanniegisborne: I wouldn’t be surprised if others thought of Guy of Thrones as well but I couldn’t resist the urge! Hee hee, I’m thrilled you stayed for the end. I saved the best for last!

  28. LOL! I love this so much! Your are sorely missed, Lady! Love & Hugs! Grati ;->

    • bccmee says:

      @Gratiana: Such a short comment for you. Do I need to take your temperature? LOL!

      Seriously, thanks for all your support over the years. 😀

      • Giggles, Bccmee!
        I had to cut it short so I could head back to work after my lunch break at home. Or I would have written you a tome. Ha! And I’ve learned to be judicious with my online computer eye time out of necessity. Ha!

        Hhhhhh! If only we had your stellar presence and creativity around again in RA blogland on a regular basis–hint, hint–life would be so gRAnd, whether or not the tall guy who looks good in and out of leather puts on a cape and spandex or he dons a tux and drinks his martini’s shaken and not stirred. Ha! See? I remember your hope for one of RA’s future roles.

        Cheers! Grati ;->

        • bccmee says:

          @Gratiana: ROTFL! I love your comments. Thanks for taking the time to come back and supplement. For the record, this comment literally made me laugh aloud!

  29. IngeD3 says:

    I’ve said it on twitter, but just had to leave a comment as well… I’m so happy that you’re back!!! It’s a wonderful RAbirthday present to all of us. And that video is genius! x

  30. Meryl says:

    woo hoo! the B’s buzzin’ again! hope all is well with you?

  31. beengizzied says:

    Signs I’m a Richard Armitage admirer:

    1.I am still subscribed to at least one largely inactive fan site (you just never know what might pop up …)

    2.Although I try to be blasé, an accidental encounter with Guy of Gisborne (esp. sitting on Iron Throne) is still a buzzy thrill.

    3.I’ve looked and looked and looked but I haven’t found a backside I prefer in all of entertainmentdom.

    Crackerjack video Bccmee although I would also have enjoyed seeing him in Skippy 🙂

    • bccmee says:

      @beengizzied: Oooh, what’s the name of that defunct site? 😉

      Is that photo a self-portrait? You may want to try braids to avoid the flyaway hair.

      There’s nobody in the world with a better derriere, in or out of the entertainment industry.

      As for Skippy, do you mean the peanut butter? 😉

  32. Carolyn says:

    Bccmee! I have missed you so much! And you have come back in a brilliant way. It is so good to hear from you again! I love this video. It made me laugh out loud. Guy of Thrones, oh I wish! And ‘I am your father’. LOL I learned a long time ago to watch til the very end. Thank you for all your hard work in making this video. It made my day!

    • bccmee says:

      @Carolyn: You are WAY too kind! Hee hee, glad you laughed aloud. I had such a lot of fun making this video and I’m somewhat surprised I finished in time for the big birthday bash. Good job sitting through the closing credits, LOL! Thanks so much for your super comment!

  33. Holliday says:

    I had no idea how much I truly missed this blog until now. Love, love, love the birthday video(the end with Darth Vader had me laughing out loud). I feel like it’s a big birthday present to us all. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  34. guylty says:

    This is absolutely amazing. I spent the last five minutes of Armitage Day watching your video – and boy, what a culmination. I loved the magazine covers, my favourite Guy on a throne, and the bonus Star Wars scene was a fantastic suprise. Fabulous, fabulous gift to the Army. Thanks, bccmee!

  35. phylly3 says:

    I am late to the party and this is the first thing I’ve today …AND IT’S THE BEST!!!
    Lord, how I have missed you! This video rocks my world. I can’t say enough!!!!

  36. Ella says:

    I’m soo happy that you’re back. And this is brilliant video. As usual. All Your works are fantastic.
    Thanks a lot! Regards from Poland. Ella

    • bccmee says:

      @Ella: Greetings! I really want to visit Poland someday. I was on the border in the Czech Republic but never made it all the way, LOL! Thanks so much for your lovely comment!

  37. Fabi says:

    Fantastic! Today I was reading all RA birthday lovely posts and thinking: I wish Bccmee was back today with another wonderful creation of hers! Thank you, dear!

  38. Ana Cris says:

    Wonderful, what a nice surprise for all of us!

  39. Thais says:

    Hi, bccmee! How are you? I hope you’re doing well. I’ve been missing your posts so much. You have no idea how thrilled I felt when I saw your blog’s link in my inbox today, in the morning. I had a pretty busy day so I wasn’t able to watch the video until now. I just loved it. It is very creative! Well done! As it was said before, it is a present to all of us. Thank you so much!!! Take care.

    • bccmee says:

      Thais: Wow, thanks so much for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful comment! Delighted you enjoyed the fanvideo. It means a lot to me. Hope you’re well too!

    I was just thinking of you today, and the great video from last year that still sits in my inbox. I watch every once in awhile. It is still RA’s birthday here and so glad I got a chance in my very busy day to watch this great video. You have been missed and hope to see more of you soon.

    You know if your an RA admirer if you keep hitting follow to new RA blogs.

    • bccmee says:

      @katie70: You’re too kind! Have to be honest, I’m still not sure what the future brings but will keep you posted. Yay, you’re one of the few commenters who answered the question! Yes, following blogs is a good thing, LOL! 😉

  42. Your videos were my doorway into Armitageland last year, when I was just discovering Richard after watching North & South, so I’m so happy to see you back – love this surprise birthday fanvid! Thank you! Even my husband loved it….and I think he’s a closet Armitage Army recruit.

    • bccmee says:

      @morrighansmuse: Wow, I’m honored, thank you. And it’s a bonus that your husband enjoyed the video too. That’s quite a thrill and I appreciate you telling me!

  43. Alexandr@ says:

    Magnifique la vidéo !! très joli montage !!! BRAVO !!

  44. Mulubinba says:

    Fantastic!!! Thank you so much. 🙂

  46. smitkit says:

    • bccmee says:

      @smitkit: Wow, thanks for coming back and taking the time to leave such a sweet comment. I need to catch up with the other birthday videos today because I was too busy yesterday!

  47. harryslass says:

    SO good to see you back …. 🙂 WONDERFUL video as always ….. just loved it …. thanks 🙂 xx

  48. mariana says:

    I’m so glad you’re back! A wonderful video for a great actor! Thank you!

  49. Joanna says:

    I’ve missed you,Bccmee! Thanks for this lovely surprise, I love it!! I’ve seen your fanvid several times and I’m still giggling like a mad 😀 Thank you ! Joanna Czyz

    • bccmee says:

      @Joanna: I’m delighted you enjoyed and endured multiple viewings of the birthday fanvideo! It was a joy to make. Thanks so much for your comment and it’s great to see you again!

  50. YOU’RE BACK!!! (And, boy, do you know how to make an entrance! Terrific video!) Does this mean you’re back on Facebook, too!?!??!? Cheers, Marcia

    • bccmee says:

      @Marcia: Such a pleasure to see you! As for facebook, I’m not sure how much I’ll be peeking in, but my account is still active. Thanks so very much for your comment!

  51. Cassie says:


  52. What an amazing video ! We love it ❤ Thank you and congratulations for the amazing job !!

  53. Nat says:

    That was awesome! I loved it. 🙂

  54. Astera says:

    Brilliant! I really enjoyed your video. The Dearth Vader segment at the end cracked me up.

  55. This is so very impressive. The first time I saw the skyline view window pane’s dance, I was floored. Especially adore the magazine rack of love. (Please let me know if you have blogged that cap or image of it elsewhere *coughs* Tumblr *coughs* Twitter…*clears throat*, excuse me, sorry.) The day it happens, which I sincerely believe will, every magazine stand in Los Angeles will think they got hit by a storm. And I could stare at Sir Guy on the Iron Throne for hours.

    • bccmee says:

      @crystalchandlyre: I may have to take you up on your challenge to post some of the graphics from the fanvideo, but it will have to wait for another day. Those new RA pictures you posted are absorbing all my attention!

      I’m very thrilled you enjoyed the birthday video. I thank you for taking the time to leave such a generous comment!

  56. BEE! I have missed you!! And I missed Richard birthday too 😦 Thanks God Richard has better fans than me. 🙂
