Operation #shaRAsmile (#RichardArmitage)

RAndom thoughts

Ok, so it’s Richard’s 4*th birthday this Saturday. I realize that not everyone can donate to charity or watch Hannibal or any of Richard’s other works. Some may not be online to trend a hashtag or edit a picture. Some might not be able to type or write what they want to say to Richard for his big day.

There is something we all can do. We can all #shaRAsmile.

(sound it out: shaR(e) A smile)

At some point Richard Armitage has probably made you smile. Whether that was Richard as John Thornton, Harry Kennedy, Thorin Oakenshield, Lucas North, Guy of Gisborne John Standring, or any of the many and varied characters he’s played. Or maybe Richard made you smile as Richard Armitage himself.

What I would like everyone to do is to make someone smile on August 22nd. You can do something nice for someone or just smile at…

OK. I am feeling kinda sorry for E.L. right now. However . . .

Porque hay poco mas que yo pueda contar. Y estoy de acuerdo en cada uno de los puntos. 😉

EL James recently held one of those Twitter Q&As. Not sure she will do another one anytime soon, as the “50 Shades” author apparently got raked over the coals. (See the link below for an MSN story about the debacle)


Now, our own Wydville happens to be acquainted with Ms. James in real life and can attest she is a funny, bubbly sort of individual who is probably well aware she is not the second coming of Shakespeare. And I can’t help feeling twinges of sympathy for anyone undergoing trial by Twitter. I have sort of been there myself and it ain’t pretty. I hope Mr. A never has such an unpleasant experience via social media.

Then again–I have to give James’ detractors credit for getting in some good zingers.

Did You Get Your Love Poems Yet?

Quince poemas de amor clásicos en la voz de Richard Armitage (en inglés, claro) 😉


Richard Armitage Classic Love Poems

Are you one of those fans who could listen to Richard Armitage read the phone book? Well, he’s done something much better. He has a little gift for us at Valentine’s. He’s recited 15 classic love poems, and they’re free.

If you’re one of those who is not sure about Richard’s voice work, a little taste:

So what are you waiting for? Oh, you don’t have an Audible account? No big deal unless you’re like a friend of mine who will not give up her name and email unless it’s life and death. Yeah, she’s paranoid. Frankly, I don’t blame her. But I understand she relented for this. 😀

For those who downloaded and you’re like me and want to know exactly where certain poems are located, here you go:

El canal de Gandalf en Youtube

No será una sorpresa para los que han paseado por el blog que tengo cierta predilección por el mundo de la interpretación y entre todo lo que lo compone por los actores de doblaje. No será inesperado tampoco que uno de entre los grandes para mi sea Pepe Mediavilla.
Para aquellos que lean desde fuera de España sepan que el Sr. Mediavilla será para siempre la voz de nuestro Gandalf. Nadie aqui puede ya separar la cara de Sir Ian McKellen de su voz (ni la de Morgan Freeman tampoco).
Hoy, gracias a Twitter y a @elanillounico, he descubierto su canal en Youtube y las maravillosas locuciones que en el nos ofrece.
Os dejo una muestra.
