The (1.6) Million-Dollar Face: article with link to . . .The Armitage Effect!

This article at www.news.com.au focuses on what lengths were gone to in changing “a beautiful man” (the writer’s words, not mine) into the warrior dwarf we all know and love, Thorin Oakenshield.

It’s a good read, but what I found absolutely irresistible was the discovery (and it took Nadia to point this out to me) that it includes some links.

And one of those three links (referencing RA-related Tumblrย pages, websites and blogs) is—to The Armitage Effect!

Yes, my post “The Winner: Richard–By a Nose” was linked in a portion of the article discussing that distinctive proboscis we all know and dearly love.

Now, I know there must be a fair number of RA blogs out there, with the number seemingly growing every day. And a fair number of them likely have posts relating to RA’s regal “hooter.” So I am pleased as punch mine was chosen to represent for blogs (the other links were to the venerable RANet and at Tumblr, “My Fickle and Varied Obsession.”)

So read and enjoy and click on the “blog” link within the story and see that post from last June.

I should be asleep but having too much fun!

      • I read your article all those months ago, FedoraLady, but to read it again and think, it is brought to his attention and gives him joy that people like his nose, just gives it a totally new dimension. You wrote it so lovely that it really deserves all possible praise.
        Thank you and again big hugs and congratulations. I am so happy for you !!!
        Imagine me and my smiley jumping around in joy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I’m only just catching up (busy week ๐Ÿ™‚ ) but congratulations Angie!

    It’s nice to be ahead of the trend – i can say i knew Angie before she was famous!

    • LOL! I promise I won’t forget all the “little people” ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was quite a surprise and a pleasant one to be chosen. Even Mr. Ladywriter seemed impressed. Adding in the fact I was mentioned on the radio by Scotty and Nige, it all made my day! And hooray for having such a busy week that involved Mr. A in the glorious flesh (he really DOES exist, after all!!)
