Yesterday I was looking at Tumblr and I came across this really amazing set of gifs. Curious about how they were made, and liking a challenge, I decided to give making one of my own a try. Naturally, I decided to go with a Richard Armitage character, in this case, John Porter. After a lot of trial and error, this is what I came up with.
I can see where making these might become addictive. Oh chaRActers, I think I might have to experiment with more of you!
Oh and for those of you who read yesterday’s post. I am now the proud aunt of a beautiful little boy! He was born this morning at 10:02!
Heat wave anyone? This is the current forecast where I live:
I know I’m not alone, but I got to thinking about what would make dealing with this heat wave more tolerable. What did I come up with? This:
I can’t speak for anyone else, but a hot, sweaty and half naked John Porter would sure make the heat more palatable for me!
I knew that you could make jigsaw puzzles out of photos thanks to various websites. And I really enjoy the RA puzzles on RANet, but today I discovered that you can also make sliding puzzles online. Just another fun way to admire RA, because really, who wouldn’t want the finished product to look like RA or one of his many characters?

I was feeling in need of a little Porter TheRApy this afternoon. May it bring someone besides me a little joy or at the very least some ogling pleasure.
Your favorite bromance:
John Porter and Gerald Baxter are the clear winners of the best bromance! Gerry drove Porter crazy most of the time, but they had some good times too. Spoiler if you haven’t seen Strike Back: I cried when Gerry was killed immediately following their heart-to-heart conversation. :(
Thanks to www.richardarmitagenet.com for the screencap.
Bonus: I had to look Gerry up because he also drove Ros crazy in episode 8.6 of Spooks: His name is Ewen Bremner and he played Ryan Baisley.

I just learned that Saturdays are for Strike Back. I don’t really know anything about the second series accept (Spoiler, just in case.) they killed John Porter off in the first episode and Cinemax fare isn’t really my thing anyway.
The first series was wonderful as far as these military shows go. Many of the actors turned in wonderfully layered performances, including Andrew Lincoln, who made it so I couldn’t quite despise Hugh Collinson. One of the aspects I most enjoyed was seeing Richard Armitage play opposite the girls playing his daughter. There was something very touching about the contrast between the strong military man–who doesn’t bat an eyelash at having to kill someone– and the tenderness the same man exhibits when interacting with his kid (for the most part anyway). That being said, I made some John Porter gifs…
