About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. OMG Angie where is the first photo from??? It is sexy has heck. Who knew I would ever go nuts over a man’s armpits. I need Richard Armitage to call me right NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • LOL I keep telling you that need to watch Strike Back. 😉 That’s from ep 3 at the Chikirubi Prison where all the prisoners have to strip before being hosed down. Those armpits are just to die for.

    • Xenia!!! You have NO idea what you are missing! Even if this type of movie is not normally your cup of tea you really do need to watch it. He is superb as John Porter even apart from the fact he looks fantastic in uniform and out of it! 😉 After seeing him as Lucas North I wasn’t sure what to expect but he blew me away.

      • In the hands of another actor, Porter might have been just another muscled bloke with guns. But Richard really did give him depth. Yep, he’s tough and ruthless at times. But he also possesses compassion and gentleness (think of Katie and Gerry) and such a deep love for his daughter. If I were in the sort of jam Katie was in as a hostage, I would hope someone like Porter would come to my rescue, that’s for sure.

        • Porter is my hero…gorgeous, sexy, strong, brave, resourceful, tender and loyal. You are in for a real treat with Richard’s portrayal.

          • All this talk about Porter made me pull out my DVD’s tonight and watched the Episode 1 and 2 of Part 1. He is nothing short of magnificent and all that has been said above including your list, Mezz! 😉

            • I’ve not long watched all six episodes, but I could turn around and see them all over again, now that I’ve finished the first series of Game of Thrones. A friend lent me the boxed set and I’ve been watching it night after night…seriously addictive viewing. I will have to hunt up the second series now, but in the meantime, Porter will keep me happy! Or maybe my favourite spy…I need to blot out Spooks S9 with some yummy S7&8 Lucas North! 😉

              • Game of Thrones is SO addictive, isn’t it, Mezz? It’s all Angie’s fault-she put me on it, and now I’m having withdrawal symptoms! When are they going to start airing series 3? I can’t wait!

              • It certainly is Judit. I’m not a huge fan of fantasy but GoT hooked me big time. I have to admit to peeking through my fingers quite often. It was a tad too gory and violent for me in parts, but I was expecting that, it is rated “R18+” here for a reason. Another friend has offered to lend me the books, but I think I’ll wait until I watch the second series.
                I suffered withdrawal symptoms when I came to the end of the fourth series of Mad Men …that was addictive viewing too, although totally different to GoT of course. I watched all four series in a stretch. Now waiting for the fifth to come out on DVD.

              • It’s funny one of my nephews (who loves GoT btw- all 3 of them do) told me “nothing ever happens in Mad Men”… I take it you don’t share that view? 🙂

              • It’s not exactly action-packed! I can’t really put my finger on why it was such addictive viewing. I could say it has something to do with my age and my love of the beautiful 50’s fashion, but that wouldn’t explain why my young adult son (whose DVDs they were) loved it. He was the one who persuaded me to give it a go, and yet he really enjoys the action genre, violence and all. He hasn’t seen GoT yet, it’s my turn to do the urging!

  2. Know what really gets me in Eps 5 & 6? The bracelets. I’ve never ever liked jewellery on men but those bracelets just dooo something I can’t even begin to describe.

    • LOVE the bracelets. Someone said that they are sometimes used as currency if a individual gets into a tight spot with no local currency. They look fab on Porter, and I am not usually into jewelry on guys all that much.

  3. Love these pics………brings back lovely memories of seeing it on the big screen at the Bafta cinema I’m sure my jaw dropped at the early pictures of Porter when he was in security guard mode but still ‘working out’ in a white vest. I mentally said get a grip woman of course he has underarm hair lol but until then RA seemed so lacking in body hair ……..remember the John Standring scene when Carol treats his cuts and bruises, and Guy in the firelight when he’s trying on his armour.

    • Some males don’t like the way their chest hair grows or feels or looks, or their partners don’t like it. It’s hard to put body makeup on the furry parts and you certainly can’t use those tattoo transfers on them successfully. The ancient Greeks and Romans used to have their bodies oiled and scraped. Whatever. Here in Spain, a man can have his whole chest waxed for 13 euros. However, underarm hair has a function in humans, as does pubic hair. (Male facial hair does, too, but it’s a more subtle thing.)

        • Because (in humans) the expectation of sexual activity triggers a rise in follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which causes an increase in hair growth, most noticeably on the face of an adult male, male facial hair can signal a readiness to engage. At least in European and North American cultures, facial hair is not covered so when the male secretes pheromones, the scent tends to cling to the hair and be perceived as a (subliminal) signal longer.

            • I’ve not seen a study done on that, and it might not bear on the issue. It’s the rate of hair growth that increases with the expectation of sexual activity, so a man might take a long time to grow a respectable beard and not see any action. Or the expectation can be there, but not be fulfilled. FSH does not, as far as I know, alter the basic hair growth pattern. Similarly, a man with enough facial hair (stubble or beard) to hold the pheromone scent may not be secreting much in the way of pheromones (or the right kind) in the first place.

              • Exactly, assuming he has a healthy, functioning endocrine system normal to an XY. Things like disease, radiation, and chemotherapy can interfere radically, as can certain genetic blips.
