#RichardArmitage to Narrate The Bible

A must read, and I hope Perry doesn’t mind that I reblogged it..What a gem this is…

Armitage Agonistes

Oughtabull Oratory.com just announced that fan favorite narrator, Richard Armitage, is currently recordingThe Bible for its Really Classics Division. Oughtabull is being tight-lipped about which Bible Armitage will be narrating. Producer Chancy Jewell said,” on the one hand, we think Richard  reading Scriptures/Bible/Torah is great material for him and will capitalize on his dramatic ability.”

On the the other hand, release is expected around Christmas, and the New Testament ( Holy Bible) would give Armitage the challenge of individualizing, through his voices, a company of  12 characters who can be hard to distinguish – to wit – the Apostles. Ms. Jewell went on, “Richard has the perfect experience for this – it’s another version of Thorin Oakenshield and  his  company of Dwarves, who were more or less indistinguishable from one another. We think Richard can bring each apostle to life, so to speak.”

Here’s Another Present for #RichardArmitage, With Love

So our guy had another birthday and this lovely lady organized another auction, gathered the donated items, kept track of all the bids invoiced everything out with the monies going to one of Mr. A’s charities….A round of applause for this fantastic individual ! Thank you sweetie, well done..

There’s no monetary value attached to birthday wishes – in the sense that they are priceless, cannot be measured in financial terms. And yet I have a number to announce here that you have been waiting for since this afternoon. Apologies for taking so long, sending the eBay invoices, monitoring the payments and filing the addresses of the winners with the correct items has taken up all this time, and there was that annoying thing called ‘editorial deadline’ that got into the way, too. Before I present you our final tally, may I urge you to find a comfortable seat, and possibly hold your jaws, ’cause they might drop.

Our combined total of the 2018 RA Birthday Auctions is…

Here’s a little breakdown:

We received donations to the tune of 393.50 EUR. The e-mail auction of the Custom RAPS ended at 130 EUR. And the total of the auctions on…

Giddy as a child again at Christmas

I must say, when a post appeared on Twitter, courtesy of Veloce, concerning a new Hobbit collectible, I was stunned by what I saw when I clicked on the image of my King…So amazed was I at the detail, the workmanship, the quality of the piece, I was hesitant about ordering it..Why you ask?  Well, it looked too good to be true that’s why, especially at the price point listed……

Well, my hesitation was short lived, off I went to the site, clicked on pre-order and voila!  Its done, although I had some difficulty getting a confirmation which resulted in an email to Asmus toys, they did respond promptly and assured me all was well. It appears this collectible is causing quite a stir on their page and causing disruptions in the ordering process…Well of course, its Thorin Oakeknshield, King under the Mountain, and a gorgeous one at that……

So if you’d like to see this “work of art”  just click here…  https://www.asmustoys.com/thorin-oakenshield, if you wish to order, understand their site is experiencing some difficulties, but you can see why…Now I wait, along with others for the King to arrive, but I’ll have time to find the best place to display him while I  wait……….

A Mother’s death is so difficult on her children left behind…..

It was so sad to read of the passing of Richard Armitage’s Mum earlier this month..it brings back memories of my Mother who passed four years ago this August…..She too was in hospice care for a few weeks before her passing, not from any disease mind you, at 86 she was just tired, had back pain and I believe just lonely..She had told me that Dad comes to visit her, wants her to come with him, take a walk..The night she passed, before I left her,she told me if he came tonight, she was ready to go, I kissed her goodnight and assured her we all would be fine if indeed she was going with him…..She passed before I made it home…..It hurts still and I understand what the Armitage family is going through, how Richard must feel, his brother, her hubby…I understand the delay in the beautiful tribute he published today, the need to cry, to miss her, to steady himself to put into words how he feels..I will keep them all in my prayers, but especially Richard, he seemed very close to his Mum……So

If you can make a donation to the hospice that cared for his Mum at this difficult time, please do, or a Hospice of your own choosing. Why?  The Hospice caregivers are caregivers like no other..They are kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, caring individuals that not only care for the patient, but the patients’s family as well..Having had to use Hospice for my Mom, I know of what i speak, they are amazing at what they do and I bless them for it..And thank them, they are tireless…

Rest in Peace Mrs. Armitage. God bless the Armitage family at this most difficult time, but know she lives on in your heart and in the memories you have, and share..God Bless

#RichardArmitage New Audio Project

Although I do love the audio books, I would prefer to see him on the screen sinking his teeth into a role that allows him to use the talent he has……Until then, well these will have to do….

Soul food, recipe by Richard Armitage

Such a brilliant piece of writing here……Thank you for your words…Posted originally by “Opera is Magic”

Opera is Magic

I know i have been absent and that i haven’t really shared much with you in a really long time. There have been the odd instances where something happened and I felt I wanted to mark it, but between NY and now expressing any thoughts has gone under the whirlwind of daily life. In fact NY still feels current to me, or recent. In between I feel like I have been living (and continue to do so) in a pressure pot. Maybe I will get a chance to talk more about it as it’s still pretty much how life is, but this post is not about that 🙂

It is thankfully about going back to the ‘happy place’ I was in during the NY trip and around it and coming back to myself as well and to a version of myself I enjoy. To a place where work merges with…
