Hint: Only one of them is mine.
I finally signed up for an AudibleUK subscription. (UK seems to have more titles I want than the Canadian site.) I took the plunge so I could order the new police procedural written by Joy Ellis and narrated by Richard Armitage. I enjoy a good murder mystery and this series set in England's Fens seemed … Continue reading Their Lost Daughters – Audiobook
At the end of June, I went to see Macbeth at Western Canada's largest not-for-profit, professional Shakespeare festival, Bard on the Beach. My younger son read the Scottish play in his high school English class this year, so I had wanted to take him to see a performance. I thought about the National Theatre Live … Continue reading I Saw a Play and the RA Fan A to Z: F
Last week, my son's school year was finally done and I had a one-evening reprieve from my killer workload. A group of 7 female colleagues from my office went to its first movie night (of many, I hope), choosing to see Ocean's 8. We tried for a group of 8 in the spirit of the movie, but … Continue reading Group of 7 Watch Ocean’s 8
Time for a few more answers to Guylty's 2018 Fan A to Z Challenge. (Continued from here.) B. Which of his chaRActers do you think RA is most like? Which is he most unlike? Richard Armitage has recently talked about being quite like Rowan Jackman, the detective in his latest audiobook project, Their Lost Daughters by Joy … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z Challenge: B to E
Guylty has issued another fun fan challenge, in the form of a Fan A to Z. I finally have a few moments to tackle the first letter only, so, here goes... A. If you added up all the money spent on DVDs, cinema tickets, accommodation, theatre tickets, fan art, audio books etc., how expensive has … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z Challenge: A
Almost everyone knows the story of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. I myself, though, had never read it, and listening to Richard Armitage perform it as an audiobook was a good first experience. Reading or listening to a book when you know the answer to the mystery, though, … Continue reading The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
A little over year ago, I was having a run of what Fatima called "tech suck". Happily, the hatred shown to me by my devices seemed to have died down soon after. Lulled into a false sense of security by the lack of overt attacks, I was taken by surprise when it all started happening again! … Continue reading Technology (Still) Hates Me!
The Episode: In anticipating today's final episode, I was excited. Episode 9 was filled with new bits of information and major confrontations, and a goodly amount of Richard Armitage as Logan, doing some exciting fighting and growling. I put aside my distaste for a Logan that could so blithely do things that are so morally … Continue reading Wolverine #10 & Series: Disappointing
Without giving much away, this episode is very exciting and fast-paced, if somewhat gruesome. Much of what has been unknown is revealed. Logan/Wolverine (Richard Armitage) is much more present, appearing three times in the episode. I've come to the conclusion that there are a lot of horrible people in the town of Burns, Alaska. Logan, … Continue reading Wolverine #9: “Richard…Growl Differently!”
