Vlog 11 + Thorin Plays Air Guitar!

We’ve all been waiting for the new vlog, so hurray! There was a lot to love about this one. The dwarf exercise routine was hilarious. But my favorite part was the little snippet of Richard Armitage in costume playing air guitar on Orcrist. Naturally I had to make a GIF so I could watch this bit on repeat. 😉

    I wonder what song he was playing.

    the air guitar GIF.

  3. Thank you so much for making this!

  4. Love this! Thanks for the gif, Jas!
    RA is obviously doing some guitar fret fingering. Does any guitar saavy person out there have a notion about chording from his hand positions?
    Cheers! Grati ;->

      I was wondering exactly the same thing when I watched it Grati! So . . . . . .all you experts out there – where are you? I’d love to hear what you have to say!! 🙂

    • So glad you like it, Grati! It was a moment begging to be turned into a GIF that continually repeats. 🙂

    It appears to be a C, I suppose….

    IMYMI The new vlog and Jas’s gift of Thorin playing air guitar with Orcrist. It’s all good!

    I don’t know what he’s really playing but the first thing that popped into my head was “Barracuda” by Heart.

  8. “In aggada–devitta–baby . . .” 😉

  9. It almost feels like we’re intruding on a deeply personal moment…he looks so engrossed. I’m not sure we’ll ever see someone create such a beautiful air guitar moment ever again!

    • Kathryn, I think you’re right about this being the most beautiful air guitar moment we’ll ever see. He does seem really engrossed. I wonder if PJ asks the actors if they are okay about behind-the-scenes moments before he includes them in the vlogs or if everything is fair game.

      • I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re fair game when in costume but of course we’ll probably never know…I find myself wanting to know more and more!! 🙂

        • I wouldn’t be surprised either. Most of the guys seem more than willing to ham it up for the cameras, for which I’m very grateful! 😉 But I just wonder with RA because he seems so protective of Thorin.

          • I can’t really imagine RA overtly clowning around as Thorin, somehow . . . he is very protective of that character, and there is something to be said for guarding the mystique and allure surrounding the warrior dwarf who would be king. I think that’s one reason we see very little of Richard in these vlogs in terms of up-close stuff as we’ve seen with some of the other actors. But when you think about it, we saw quite a lot of him in action in the various green screen shots—he’s been a busy boy!

          • I know what you mean. I guess he just has a different MO when he’s working than some of the others. I kind of love that there’s an air of mystery about him.

    Sad to say, I think you are right. 😦 He once said he created “sound tracks” for things he was doing. Maybe this is one of those times! I’d love to hear what it sounded like. *sigh*

    • Teuchter

      PS – I really should have thanked you for making the gif Jas! I can’t tell you how long I’ve sat watching it. It seemed like he was quite oblivious to what was going on around him – truly zoned out. I was so pleased to see that even wearing the prosthetics he can still wrinkle his forehead to some degree! 😉

      • I was happy to make it, Teuchter! You are not alone in sitting there watching it over and over. It’s mesmerizing. Oh, and crinkles!!! They make me smile. 😉

  11. Where’s that darn “LOVE” button? Thanks, Jas, for giffing this!
    “Purple Haze” maybe? 😉

    • They should make a “love” button! 😉 Richard playing Jimi…that might make my mind explode!!!

    Thank You!

  13. Had to go back and watch it on Youtube because I missed Richard fingering Ocrist like a guitar the first time. I’m such a bad girl for not paying attention to the video but was just listening to it.

    • You aren’t a bad girl! I find myself just listening to things often, even things that involve RA. Then I have to go back and make myself watch.

    😀 Thanks for the gif, Jasrangoon :*

    I loved this clip. It made me soooo happy. And the dwarve exercise scene as well 🙂

    • Yes! The air guitar and the Dwarfercise were by far my two favorite moments of the vlog.

      • Mine, too, Jas. I have to believe those guys thoroughly enjoy their roles and get a kick out of making us smile. Also loved it when the dwarf actors were greeting each other. Those heart-felt hugs and smiles and the joking. Real sense of camaraderie, you know?

  16. Excellent gif, I love it ! Thanks. 🙂

  17. Oh to be strummed like this by Thorin… 😉 (sorry I had to bring it back to the gutter, Its what I do)

    • Oh honey, you are free to always bring it back to the gutter! 😉 I know I wouldn’t mind being strummed by Thorin.

    The most important and impressive gif of the vlog! Thanx!

  19. Lovely gif, thanks Jasrangoon. When I saw this all I could think was… Rock On Thorin! \m/
