I was just reading a very interesting interview of Richard Armitage. A few items of note:
— He bought an electric cello when he was in New Zealand.
Some have never seen an electric cello, so I bring it for your edification:
— He still likes Love in an Elevator.
One of these days he’s going to say that often enough that the fans will start demanding some tights and scarves and who knows what else.. Yes, I’m picturing him in a Steven Tyler get up. Just needs a yellow vest or whatever the hell that is ’cause I know he already has the orange pants. Count on it if he gets drunk enough.
— Took notes from Arnold Schwarzengger about standing firm against negativity:
His speech was really interesting, he was very honest about the industry and his lingering message to everyone in the room was just “Don’t ever take no for an answer.” Because he said he was told no throughout most of his career and everything he wanted to do he was told no and he said don’t listen to the nay-sayers.
Yeah, that’s what I was saying! You go, Richard! ;-)
The speech, which is definitely worth a listen:
— Last but not least.
Richard has a fear of Eamonn Holmes. Well, yeah, hell, I’m afraid of him after “devotation.” That’s what really woke Richard up. He was sitting there, and thought, “Huh? Did I miss something? Are they talking about the Empire Awards? Are people changing their minds?!”
Devotation: You go vote. Then you go home and wish you could go back because you changed your mind…..

And that was J for the April Challenge thingy.
edit: Maybe I’m drunk too ’cause I meant that was I. That was I, people. Yeah, this is Friday, and I’m a day late, so that was I.
