It’s Thorin Thursday! Part 2 of “How I Fell for a Hot, Hairy Dwarf . . .”

Standard

(If you missed the first installment, https://thearmitageeffect.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/guest-post-how-i-fell-for-a-hot-hairy-dwarf-never-looked-back-part-1/)

It’s Bechep! Welcome back dear readers to the next and final instalment of my guest post  “How I Fell Hard for a Hot, Hairy Dwarf & Never Looked Back”  If you missed last week’s post then I invite you to go back and have a read – even if you find the post uninteresting, there are some nice pictures!

Fasten your seatbelts and get ready for some blatant dwarf love!

Part 2. Hot and Hairy Dwarf.

Warning: For those fans that disagree with the objectifying of Richard Armitage, please look away now. Do join us again in Part 3 as I’m afraid there is lots of worshipping and objectifying about to take place.

Now dear friends, let”s just start with a pretty picture.

If I begin to talk nonsense or babble incoherently, please feel free to throw a bucket of cold water over me.

Right, let’s get started discussing this hot and hairy dwarf.  Well, where to start? Let’s just take it from the top shall we?

The Hair –  And yes I use a capital letter for the Hair because it deserves it don’t you think?  I want to wash it, braid it and then wind said braids around my finger, grab handfuls of it, smell it, run my fingers through it and brush it.  It is like something out of a shampoo commercial.  The way he flicks it around in such an outstanding fashion and it all falls back into place just so – *sigh*

Hair acting at its finest.

Younger Thorin with his shorter, darker mane is positively dreamy.  But I can’t help being ever so fond of the longer, thicker, slightly greying locks.  They just make him look so regal and worldly. I just want to brush them away from his face and…*cough* let’s get back to it, shall we?

The eyes –  OHHHHHHH the eyes. Richard’s eyes are quite honestly the most amazing, mesmerising eyes I have ever seen.  Their colour makes me gasp and their intensity makes me swoon.  Put these eyes onto a hot dwarf and Cha-Ching! You have got yourself a winner. Imagine if you will, staring into them while he talks with you about his quest to return to Erebor, well I don’t know about you–but I just melt into a puddle.

I cannot move on without just mentioning the eyelashes.  The way he flutters them at all manner of hobbits, wizards, dwarves, elves – no wonder Lord Elrond returned Orcrist the sword to him.  I’d quite frankly give him anything he wanted if he batted those eyelashes at me.

See what I mean?

The Beard –  Again I use a capital letter.  I have seen many pictures of Richard as himself sporting this beard and, although not normally a fan of beards, I will confess that I love it.  Thorin’s beard is quite simply a thing of beauty. It’s sitting there all “look at me” and well, I comply and look at it!  It adds to the whole majestic, royal, yummy, scrummy vision that is Thorin Oakenshield. And no matter what sticky situation he has managed to get himself into, it always looks so well-groomed – how does he do it? Oh, well you see, he’s perfect.  Ohhh I just want to graze my hand along it and have it tickle my face…  Ummm, perhaps you should get that bucket of cold water ready, dear readers.

The voice– I don’t really think I need say too much about the voice as I’m sure you are completely aware of Richard’s voice. It’s one of his most wonderful and appealing features. That deep baritone and lovely accent. I would be quite happy to sit down and listen to him read the Phone Book with that voice.

But back to Thorin. The way he barks orders at everyone, speaks kindly to an old warrior, utters the name of the elves in disgust, apologises for his doubt to a hobbit, it really has me swooning.  Of course, one cannot talk about Thorin’s voice without mentioning the singing – I believe I actually hyperventilated right there in the cinema when he starting singing by the fireplace. *THUD*

Hmmmm it must be time for another pretty picture – one that shows off the beard I think…

bechep graphics 5

I realise that I am running out of time here (I do tend to waffle so when talking about Thorin Oakenshield) so I will just make a general final list of all the other things that made me fall for this hot dwarf:

  • His divine lips that curl in contempt, smirk with arrogance or smile in pleasure.
  • His coat pelt that just begs me to run my fingers through it or wrap it around me (or both at the same time)
  • His sword, belt, ring axe and shield – all add to the majestic vision of the King Under The Mountain. And the way he wields that sword…*ahem*
  • His attitude has me all in a tizzy. Because let’s be honest, there’s nothing quite like a bit of a bad boy with an attitude to match.  He’s so damn arrogant, haughty and domineering – and I can’t get enough of it! Of course he can also be humble and kind when he thinks no-one is looking.

So, there you have it.  Some of the reasons why I “fell hard for a hot, hairy dwarf”. And as I wipe the drool from my chin we shall sum up with-

Part 3 Never Look Back

As I move forward as a new Richard Armitage fan and Thorin Oakenshield admirer I’m quite excited to think of all the things that I can still look forward to. I will continue to have all those experiences that I mentioned in Part One last week (yes dear reader, I may still get those underpants!) and many new ones too I’m sure.

Of course there are the other two movies to look forward to,  but I can’t wait to meet more new people (Richard Armitage fans are really the best ever!), learn, tweet, blog, talk and read about Richard/Thorin, I still have many TV shows to watch that star our boy from Leicester,  and I’m very, very quietly going to whisper to you that I may even try writing a Thorin fanfic.

So,  that hot, hairy dwarf started a chain of events that has led me to a wonderful, educational, exciting, busy time in my life.  I wonder if I thank him will he look at me like this and say in that deep voice “You are welcome, Lady0akenshield” (QUICK get that bucket of water and throw it on me now!  *THUD*)

bechep graphic 6

And now as I dry myself off – that water went everywhere! – all that remains is for me to bid you  farewell.  I hope you have enjoyed reading my ramblings about Thorin Oakenshield and I managed to make you smile and, if you weren’t already a fan of our dwarf, see some of his outstanding qualities.

And to you Angie, thank you so very much for having me on your Blog. I was honoured that you asked me.  Now, I have tidied up, put everything back in its place and left the key by the door.  I may just leave a small belonging behind, perhaps up on a shelf so I have an excuse to come and visit again.  I won’t stay long I promise!

When will it all get sorted out? ‘Black Sky,’ WB & Rhythm & Hues

Standard

BeFunky_Oilpainting_2GARY

Black Sky producer Todd Garner tweeted a link to this article today:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/warner-bros-disputes-vfx-work-431380#

Sounds as if this could be a drawn-out affair. *sigh*

Thoughts?

At this point, it’s still just a rumor for me.

Standard

From Caroline Frost at the Huffington Post UK, March 25, 2013:

Much-loved spy drama ‘Spooks’ could make the move to the big screen, with one of its stars revealing that there is a script in the works, being penned by the original writers of the hit series.

“There is a script kind of in the machine,” HuffPostUK has learned from actor Peter Firth, who played MI5 chief Harry Pearce throughout the ten series of the popular drama.

“They should make it,” he adds. “It’s not like it’s a gamble with this one. But it costs a lot, and there’s not a lot of money to go round at the moment.”

This would suit Firth, who previously told HuffPostUK that he wished for a happier ending for his character with longtime colleague and barely-expressed love – Ruth Evershed, played by Nicola Walker. Viewers of the series finale in October 2011 watched goggle-eyed, as Ruth became one of Spooks’ huge number of agents to fall for her country, or in the actors’ case, the dramatic storyline.

This article has been buzzing around on Twitter for a couple of days and been blogged about on a few occasions, too. But the more I think about it, the less I get excited about it. Hasn’t this rumor been floating around for quite a while?

www.loogix.com_11282131

Saying “there is a script kind of in the machine” doesn’t exactly equate to “yes, we ARE making a Spooks movie.” And considering the continuing economic woes, the likelihood of more money to go around for such a film seems unlikely.  Do we want to see something done on the super-cheap?

Would I love to see my favorite spy Lucas North in a film? Sure I would. But we have no idea who would be included in the cast if and when the film was made.  While Richard has expressed some enthusiasm for returning to the role, is he genuinely interested at this stage of the game or simply being polite, agreeable RA?

Since Firth is talking about wanting a “happier ending” for Harry and Ruth–who died in the final ep of the series–that can only happen if they do some sort of flashback. That, or have this become Spooks: The Zombie Files. Or possibly Spooks: The Vampire Chronicles.  All the dead spooks are really undead, you see . . .

Perhaps die-hard Spooks fans will be pleased to see any combination of cast members (dead or undead) come together for a film version.  Truthfully, being more of Richard Armitage/Lucas aficionado than a Spooks fan (although I have seen almost the entire series, sans some of the earlier eps and series 10), I am not one of them.

And a lot depends on the storyline. Naturally, IF RA was involved, I’d want a lot of Lucas.  Frankly, if I had to sit through much more UST between Ruth and Harry, I would feel like doing dire things to myself, as much as I like Nicola Walker as an actress.

Now, as I have mentioned elsewhere, Lucas, alive and well and appearing in a shower scene, scrubbing up to “Love in an Elevator,” would definitely draw me into the audience. 😀

Anyway, while it’s a fun idea to toss around, I just can’t take Spooks: The Movie seriously for now.

What I would like to see is Black Sky get finished and distributed.  We know that one will feature our Richard! And if not in a shower, then wet. 😉

Marshmallows & Pain & Thorin: Pre-Dawn Musings from Fedoralady

Standard

So the latest “must-see-but you can’t if you don’t have the secret decoder ring nanny, nanny boo-boo” event has come and gone and Lord knows what we will be subjected to in the coming months as bits and bobs of the second film of The Hobbit trilogy are dangled before us like the proverbial carrot.  Yes, my friend Velvet of Morrighan’s Muse, Pavlov’s dogs have been located, and we, apparently, are the salivating pack.  We may hate ourselves in the morning, but we will feverishly do our best to gobble up every morsel we can glean of whatever they throw at us tonight.

You know what? I don’t really care about elves (sorry, never consumed by ardor for Legolas, too pretty for my tastes, and now Thranduil has pissed me off seriously by getting in my dwarf king’s personal space) or dragons (even if voiced by a talented actor who looks inexplicably like an otter and speaks the Queen’s English quite beautifully).  I am awake again in the wee hours and in pain.  Listening to the wind still roaring a bit outside, I am eating marshmallows, of all things (at least they are fat-free),  my heating pad back on, seeking some sort of relief.

Lots of emotions running through me right now. I am angry at my body for letting me down yet again,  and a bit miffed with Warner Brothers for what I perceive is greed and a certain lack of respect for fans,  and feeling oddly defensive of my Thorin/RA and irrationally angry at the thought of Bard or Thranduil or anyone else stealing his magnificent thunder.  Call me crazy–you wouldn’t be the first–but that’s the way I feel.

So let’s look at Thorin, shall we? Maybe this will take me to my happy place. If nothing else, it will give you something nice to swoon/chuckle over.

Update: Apparently Warner Brothers has hired lawyers to go against screen shots taken of the Hobbit Live Event. Hearing thsi, I have even less love for them. Now they’ll come up with a Super Duper Extra Extended Edition with actual DNA of the cast members to help pay the exorbitant lawyer fees. Give me a freakin’ break . . .

Last Call for Thorin Thursday: The Softer Side

Standard

hobbitauj-0191501337poer

He’s proud and sometimes haughty, but he can also show humility. His temper is sharp, but there is a soft spot in his heart for those close to him. Often stern and forbidding, when he is able to let his guard down a little, a gentler side shows. And the smiles, rare though they may be, are just incredible. Perhaps all the more incredible because of that rarity.

And then there is Richard himself. Modest, gentle, with that sweet humility. Pretty hard not to love.

(Guest Post) How I Fell for a Hot, Hairy Dwarf & Never Looked Back: Part 1

Standard

Today it’s Thorin Thursday and we have a guest post by one of our regular blog commenters from Down Under (who is also a new blogger and new RA fan, courtesy of one gorgeous dwarf we all know and love) . . .  I love her enthusiasm for our dear Richard and his characters.

Hello!

bechep

I suppose I should start by introducing myself.  I’m Bec Hepworth – many of you may know me as Bechep from blogs or @lady0akenshield on Twitter.  Angie has kindly (and bravely) asked me to do a bit of a guest post on her wonderful blog for Thorin Thursday.  Just so we are clear, I love Thorin Oakenshield.  I’m talking totally and, to use a Richard-ism, pants-droppingly obsessed *ahem* by Thorin Oakenshield.  I’m a little nervous and oh so slightly excited to talk about my favourite subject – I may begin to waffle, please just bear with me!

When Angie approached me here was the outline: “How I Fell Hard for a Hot, Hairy Dwarf & Never Looked Back”

After a little giggle,  I decided that I would break down that statement into three parts.

  1. How I fell hard,
  2. Hot and hairy (and oh how I’m looking forward to writing about that!) and
  3. Never looking back.

So, get yourself a mug of mead/tea/coffee/wine/ other refreshment and  let us begin…

Part 1: How I Fell Hard

It was in fact, to coin a phrase, An Unexpected Journey.  There I was, just cruising along with my little life- young children, husband, part-time job as a primary school teacher, family, friends, mortgage-you get the idea, nothing really taking up too much time or brain space and  nothing out of the ordinary going on.

I went to the cinema on Boxing Day to see The Hobbit on its opening night (it opens later in Australia – I don’t know why and don’t get me started…) I’m an avid Tolkien fan and was very excited to see the movie having thoroughly enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  I was lining up ready to go in. I looked up and saw this giant poster :

hobbit poster

and there…in the middle…Thorin Oakenshield.  I remember thinking “Oooh he’s very nice” and continued to stare at it until we went in.  I won’t bore you with my various reactions to the movie – oh, that glorious moment he arrives at Bag End… *stares off into the distance…*

thehobbit-p1_1275

Anyway, where was I?  Oh yes. So we will Skip forward roughly three hours…

I floated out of the cinema in a complete and utter state of  euphoria.  I was totally and utterly smitten. I rushed home to get on the internet and find out who this amazing, delicious, gorgeous actor was. (sorry people who came to the movie with me, no coffee and Christmas Day left over goodies for you! Safe trip home, there’s the door.)

The next few days – which turned into weeks were spent finding out all I could about Richard Armitage.

The Armitage Effect was one of the first places I found when I Googled his name.  I loved that I could find like-minded people talking about and worshipping this incredible actor.  When I finally plucked up the courage to leave a comment back on  the 2nd January (Post: “We all need an Armitage Hero” – I still remember!) Angie and the other fans were very welcoming and it was so great to actually communicate with other people about my new passion and not feel silly or judged.

hobbit Thorin poster

Pause with me a moment, won’t you? as we just gaze at the majesty.

So I ordered all three series of Robin Hood. And began having Sir Guy marathons of 3-4 episodes a night (oh, to have all-night marathons with Sir Guy…whoops did I just say that out loud!?).  I believe my Long Suffering Husband ‘s comment was “all this because you saw The Hobbit?”  Yes my dear, seeing The Hobbit is PRECISELY why all this!

Even grumpy, the dwarf is a dream!

grumpy thorin

And so it began.  Since I plucked up the courage to write that first little comment, I have experienced all sorts of incredible and wonderful things: meeting amazing, funny, very special people, Reading Blogs, Writing a Blog ( a very insignificant and amateur one over on Word Press), Twitter, You Tube clips, Fan Fiction, Watching all the Richard Armitage TV shows I can get my hands on (Oh Lucas, you are so dreamy…), buying Thorin-related products (I did draw the line at Thorin Oakenshield underpants but for a moment there, dear readers, I did consider it), getting pictures on my phone so I could have sneaky peeks at work, learning new verbs like Richarding and Thorinized (one of yours, Angie, I believe?), the list goes on.

I could go into detail about all these experiences but I can see Angie nervously checking her watch – I suspect she thinks I may be one of those visitors who, once arrived, digs their heels in, spreads their belongings around the place and doesn’t show any signs of leaving, so I shall stop here momentarily.

Lets all collect ourselves, stand up, stretch and leave it there for now.  I think we could all do with a little break before embarking on the Hot and Hairy part of this post.

See you back here next Thorin Thursday as we delight in his lusciousness and  majestic-ness (yes it’s a word).  Farewell dear readers until next week…

Oh, and here’s another pretty picture. Just to keep you going until then.

Thorin, Thorin, Thorin: Dwarf on the Brain

Standard

I finally had three hours of sleep this afternoon/evening, waking abruptly when spouse rubbed my foot to tell me he was home with buffalo chicken pizza. Sounded good, tasted good, but it’s all gone wrong on my stomach somehow.

That’s what I get for staying up all night again, watching The Hobbit, all the video blogs and the featurette promoting beautiful New Zealand. Then in the wee hours of the morning I let the YT clips buffer sl-o-w-ly so I could see another Hobbit documentary, “A Hobbit’s Tale,” with Richard reading through lines, clumping about in those big clunky dwarf boots and showing off his biceps with practice fighting.

Lastly and most endearingly, still in his Thorin makeup, complete with blood-smeared face and flowing locks, Richard and his lovely talking hands spoke to the film’s crew about how much he looked forward to returning to NZ this year. I love him and Thorin, so majestic and fierce and proud and beautiful, more than ever. I’ve got dwarf on the brain. Just in case you haven’t seen “A Hobbit’s Tale” here it is on YT in two parts.


And here’s more fanart. I hope you enjoy!

Richard makes speech to crew and cast. How I want to see this! Apparently it’s featured in the Best Buy Hobbit Combo pack in its exclusive documentary. Fingers crossed it will show up on YT at some point in the not-to-distant future. I again give thanks to Dark Jackal for sharing the video screencaps with us.  And enjoy the little video–short but sweet with some lovely music and images of Richard as the beautiful, majestic Thorin!

I think I’ve got it back now. Wow.  What a beautiful image.

Thank you, Dark Jackal at Heirs of Durin, for sharing wonderful screencaps like this one from the special edition Best Buy Hobbit Blu-ray combo pack. This version features an exclusive 30-minute documentary on the making of the film. Click on the link below to go to DJ’s blog and check out the gallery there.  There are some fantastic images of RA and his fellow cast members. Oh, it’s feeling like Christmas again!

I’ve been working on RL stuff, specifically my part of the Jr. Miss FDA Pageant video, which is a separate video mixing live footage with my edited stills and set to a special edit of that Flo-Rida song, “Sometimes, I Get a Good Feeling.” Benny will add it to the end of the pageant footage.  I did that all by myself–with a little tutelage from the Master, aka Benny, and I am kind of proud of it.  Old girl is still learning new tricks.

A ‘proud, cantankerous’ father figure: An Xbox SmartGlass Exclusive Vid Clip

Standard

This clip is part of an exclusive featurette, “The Company of Dwarves,” which you get when you buy THAUJ on Xbox Video. It features Richard Armitage, Dean O’Gorman and Aidan Turner talking about their respective characters and their relationships with one another, and gives lots of behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the film. Quite a lot of Thoriny goodness here. And the rumble of Richard’s voice. And I do believe I detected a note of Richard in Dean’s character voice–well, he did say he patterned it after RA, right?

Richard describes Thorin as a proud, cantankerous, angry, burdened man who has developed a hard shell from life’s circumstances. Yet the uncrowned King Under the Mountain also tries to be a father figure to his two fatherless nephews, Kili and Fili, grooming the eldest to one day sit on the throne and lead his people. We see how the three share a strong bond. Watch and enjoy! Thank you, RA Net, for the heads up on this at Twitter.

Richard’s Secret Thoughts: Twitter Video Edition

Standard

I’ve always gotten the impression Richard really wasn’t all that comfortable hawking stuff. Oh, promoting his productions and praising his co-stars, crew members and more, sure, raising monies for charities, absolutely, but selling stuff–no.

I think back to the little promo he did for the Spooks 9 DVD and its special features, recalling that slightly sheepish expression he wore on his face.  I could be wrong, of course. (Maybe it was the bogus quality of the scriptwriting in Spooks 9 that was bugging him. Certainly bugged ME.)

Anyway,  I couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with the recent “thank you” vid to Twitter fans of The Hobbit, a vid which was also, of course, a shameless plug to remind everyone the DVD is coming out so BUY, BUY, BUY! (as if we need encouragement).  And I enjoy having fun with our modest fellow and imagining him having less-than-modest thoughts in that handsome head . . . in that spirit, I present Richard’s Secret Thoughts: Twitter Video Edition.

BeFunky_TwitterQA-02thoughts1.jpg

Richard, pondering his amazing combination of potent masculinity with boyish winsomeness.

BeFunky_TwitterQA-03thought2.jpg

I mean, really, he does have it all.  Awfully hard to fit it all in a teeny bubble.

BeFunky_pizapythoughts3.jpg

It is almost St. Paddy’s Day, James is Irish and–I couldn’t resist the leprechaun hats, green beer and rainbow. Sorry.

BeFunky_TwitterQA-08thoughts4.jpg

Richard now gets down to the brass tacks. The reason to buy that DVD/Blu-ray/Combo pack/digital download/whatever-heckity-else-they-come-up-with to sell you.  We want him. And sadly, this may be the only way he’ll end up in our living room. Or bedroom. Or–whatever. *cough*

BeFunky_TwitterQA-06thought5.jpg

Yeah, there’s plenty of comic relief (albeit of the creepy kind in the case of the bug-eyed beastie) with Gollum and party boy Bofur–but for white-hot sex appeal, go for the alpha dwarf every time!

Really, there’s always someone trying to outdo the Master. Silly rabbit.

Richard talks about potential blooper moments, “pants-droppingly” good director

Standard

http://richardarmitagecentral.co.uk/getty-com-interviews-with-richard/

If you haven’t seen these seven mini-videos, snippets of a recent interview promoting the The Hobbit DVD release, please take the time to do so. Posted by Getty.com, they offer some new tidbits and insights about the making of the film (including poor Richard’s sincere hope the moment an overheated Thorin tossed his cookies into a bucket after shooting the goblin scene never made it onto the DVD).

163446739_k1163446739_k2163446739_k3163446739_k4163446739_k5

Richard is obviously fighting some ailment, sounding congested and having to swallow several times and clear his throat, but he seems in good spirits (the raised ironical brow and those talking hands!) and looks quite sporty in his cardi and tie.  Unfortunately, there is a Getty Images logo splashed across his handsome face. WelL, we can’t have everything, can we? In the meanwhile, a few caps from his appearance on Lorraine Kelly’s show.   Oh, the expressive brow, big geeky laugh and the Tongue of Concentration!
