Timeout for a Timeout

OnLocation-UrbanAtShedCrewtwitter-08Apr14Have you ever been so tired at the end of the day you didn’t care if you ate or bathed? You were like a homing pigeon focused on making it to a certain place, and that would be the bed? And you had to be focused ’cause you were so whipped that any distraction would have completely taken you off task?

Yeah, I know some of you have been that tired, and tonight I’m so there. My whole goal in the next half hour is to make it to bed. A few minutes ago the doorbell rang, and of course no one else is home to answer it. I flirted with the idea of ignoring it and proceeding onto my bedroom, but I felt bad about doing that and decided to see who it was. I’m so glad I didn’t blow it off, ’cause I opened the front door and lo and behold it was my ass finally getting home.

I really am tired tonight. It’s a good tired but a very real tired, so any speculation about Richard Armitage’s future plans will have to wait until tomorrow — at least for me.

And hey, we may hear something between now and then, and a very good chance it will be by the end of this month.

Rich,

I hope you’re taking a timeout too after that hellacious schedule for The Crucible.

I would write more, but man, my brain hasn’t gotten home yet. I hope it shows up before morning.

Goodnight,
A crazy…oh to hell with it; I’m to bed.

I hope one of you will wake me if something really interesting happens. :D

Several new banners for the final Hobbit segement, Battle of the Five Armies, are out. Go here for more.

Sarah’s done it again

The pun aside, these two photos are fantastic, and I have seen a lot of photos of Richard Armitage. Not saying how many. Actually, I have no clue how many. It is a lot.

The originals are found here, and I’m not entirely sure these can be embedded.

One more time and this time with the copyright symbol:

Richard Armitage by Sarah Dunn

note: I will remove if Ms. Dunn wants me to do so. No problem at all.

The Old Vic has heard us!

Some of My Favorite #AskArmitage Tweets for September 12

The control freak in me is begging to do this, so I’ve relented.

My favorite questions for the September 12th #AskArmitage Twitter event:

I did not see one of these, so I had to ask!

I’m sure some others have asked this, but I didn’t see any. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to get it in more than once. :D

Why Shit Doesn’t Just Happen

Reblogged from Write on the River

There’s an author and blogger I follow who got my attention this morning. I’ve now pre-ordered his book.

Why Shit Doesn’t Just Happen
September 2
By Bob Mayer

shitdoesntjusthappen1Why the book and title? I had to get your attention, just like engineers, soldiers, pilots, astronauts, passengers, policemen, firemen, etc. need to get someone’s attention just before a catastrophe occurs in order to either prevent the event or save lives. And engineers, systems analysts, workers, and managers have to get the attention of others in order to point out cascade events that, if unchecked, will lead to a catastrophe.

Consider the meaning of the phrase shit happens. Saying “shit happens” indicates events are random, have no meaning and there is no accountability or responsibility. It indicates such events could just as easily happen again and there’s nothing we can do about them.

Read the rest here

A segue for those who only come here to read about Richard Armitage. Today, our guy is “In Conversation” at the Old Vic, and it’s going to be interesting to see what he makes happen.

Hopefully we will hear something soon.

So yeah, an interesting mix of subjects.

edit: I wish I had turned off pinging. Oh well, Bob Mayer can think I’m a nut all he wants. I did buy the book. :D

You should write about The Crucible. EVERYONE should write about it.

Reblogged from MeandRichard

I couldn’t agree more — even if you don’t publish it for the world.

You should write about The Crucible. EVERYONE should write about it.

The reason that I have been trying to link every longer fan reaction to the play that I have found on a blog or site — and I look for new ones every day — is that I’m trying to create a broad record of the reactions to the play by non-professionals. No one should take my decision to write about the play myself as a signal that I think others should not write about it. I will continue to search for other reactions and link them here in order to do what I can to assure that more people see them. Everyone will have a different one — because really, everyone is seeing a slightly different play — and we should rejoice in that, in finding as many as possible.

If you do want to publish something and you don’t have a platform, I hope you know that there are plenty of blogs (including this one) that would be happy to do it for you.

A little inspiration:

John Proctor

edit:

If you want to start a blog and need help, I’ll help you, and no, it does not need to be a Richard Armitage blog unless that’s what you want.
