Naughty, naughty!! T-t-t-tease me, you bad boys . . .


Charming. Disarming. Seductive. Tempting. Teasing. RA’s ChaRActers being such naughty, naughty guys. Who can resist?

It’s the time for some sexy, methinks.


Temptation. Attraction. Enticement. Desire. Arousal. Release. It’s the time . . . of the season. Ahhhhhhhhhh . . . so give me some lovin’!

Artsy Armitage


I’ve been playing with the artistic effects on the BeFunky site and thought I would share some of the results with you. These were using the Impressionist, Inkify and Watercolor effects.

Thoughts on Lucas & a Miscellany of ChaRActers as Monday fades away


At midnight, I’m going to record a National Geographic Channel special on Russian prisons that Benny recommended to me. “You know those tattoos that Armitage had for that role? Well, they show them on there. Those places are—” He should his head and expelled a huge sigh. I thought of poor Lucas and eight years of hell in such a place. Enough to break almost any man. One more reason I disavow the reality of John Bateman. If Oleg knew every corner of Lucas’s mind, why didn’t he sniff out that little nugget?

And no matter how much “John Bateman” may have wanted to atone for his sins, I just don’t see that fluidly moral creature being able to tough it out. Lucas attempted to kill himself; Bateman would have eventually succeeded.

It seems much more plausible that Lucas was implanted with false memories to be activated at a later date.  At any rate, I will report back my thoughts after I watch the show, but I think I will wait on that until tomorrow. In the meantime, more images of our lovely lad in his various guises.  (comments are now disabled on this post)

Bad Boys vs. Bad Guys: there IS a difference, ladies


Fedoralady would like to clarify something for readers. She does not equate bad boys and bad guys as being one and the same. Please note an earlier post was entitled And the Bad Boys, not the Bad Guys.

When I refer to someone as a bad boy, he isn’t necessarily involved in criminal activity. Maybe he just can’t keep it in his speedos (hello, Lee!) maybe his ethics are weak, his morals are a bit too fluid.  Maybe he’s an habitual liar and a cheat. Doesn’t have to be an ax murderer to qualify as a “bad boy.” Under that definition, Philip Turner does qualify as a bad boy, if not a bad guy. And an extremely attractive one, I might add.  Bad boys are often quite charming and disarming when they take the notion to be.


A “bad guy,” on the other hand, is how I would categorize Heinz Kruger. He’s a enemy spy responsible for the deaths of a number of people. If John Bateman actually existed, he would definitely have to be considered a bad guy.  Guy starts out a bad guy, killing and torturing for the sheriff, but we see a transformation take place as he becomes an anti-hero and redeems himself as a good guy.  Of course, to those of us who adore Guy, he was never really bad, just–misunderstood. 😉 Sometimes goodness or badness re a character  is in the mind of the beholder, I do believe.



Now, sometimes it’s just not easy to classify a character as a good guy or a bad guy or a bad boy. Sometimes they overlap because, as we know, Richard’ s characters have many shadings.  As would be the case in real life, no character is all bad or all good.. Paul Andrews is a character that fits into this area for me. He is a complex fellow with good intentions. He’s not a monster; he’s a loving dad and tries to discipline his partner’s brattish son.  But he has certain character flaws, weaknesses, vulnerabilities that lead him into foolish, irresponsible actions that result in a terrible tragedy.  You could consider him as a bad boy and/or a bad guy, depending on how you look at things



I hope this helps to sort things out. Sorry I didn’t define things more clearly for you all in terms of how I categorize the characters. Don’t want you worrying yourself into a frazzle about who’s good, bad or indifferent. 😉 I leave you with one of the undisputed good guys, Harry Jasper Kennedy.

Harry and Richard–definitely two of the good guys.

Richard and his work: a miscellany of art & thoughts


Those beautiful eyes. The close-up of Richard taken from the DVD extras for Spooks S9. He displays an amazing eloquence with his eyes alone, doesn’t he?

Even after becoming “one of us,” as Robin referred to him, Sir Guy was still the odd man out, the outsider that wasn’t exactly embraced with open arms by the outlaws.  I suspect Richard’s experiences of feeling like an outsider in his youth helped him capture Sir Guy’s loneliness and his vulnerability.  I kept wanting desperately for someone to be nice to Guy. At least he had, albeit all too briefly, Meg as his champion. And I found myself warming to Robin-finally–as he did extend the olive branch to his “brother in arms.”

Well, many of us DO love to see those hands in action and/or watch him eat . . . if I were to share a meal with him, I fear I would be too busy trying to keep my eyes off his hands and mouth in action to eat my meal. Hmmm. If I could have dinner with RA often enough, maybe I would lose weight! 😉

It certainly had to brighten Katie’s day to look up and see her handsome hero bearing flowers and wearing that lovely smile. It seemed only natural for me to give Katie a role in helping John Porter in Truce. As for Porter–well, could he have been any more perfect? Not with Richard playing the role.

Oh, does the man know how to smoulder. I read a review for a new movie featuring Zac Efron and the critic said one problem with the romance part of the film was Efron “really doesn’t know how to smoulder.” Maybe he needs to take lessons from Richard Armitage.

I love how pensive he looks here. I think he is a man who gives a lot of thought to his roles and his responses when interviewed. His intelligence and depth shines through. There’s a lot going on beneath that handsome exterior.

It’s Thursday . . . and more images serious & saucy


Hi, gang. I have several things I want to write about, but it’s 2 a.m., I am yawning my head off and my eyes are watering like mad, so I think those will wait until tomorrow (or should I say, later today). So, I want to share more of the fanart I have been working on. Hope everyone’s day is going well!
