I did not ask permission. I plan to ask forgiveness.

You’re aware of who the snaffler was in that case, right? @RCArmitage? I’m not calling The Dude out by any means here. I’m using that instance to make a larger point with regard to the constant drama about copyright of the last few weeks: some snaffling we tolerate depending on who’s doing it and what the circumstances are.

Last night’s screencap of joy — sorry, unattributed

I got caught up in the “my system isn’t good enough to watch the extras” issue last night. Frustrating. However, I saw these all over facebook. Presumably capped from the extended edition of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Have a great day!

We’re only a few weeks away from the ten-year anniversary of the first broadcast of North & South. While Richard Armitage had fans before then, that night in November 2004 lit the true explosion — the first time Armitage’s viewers crashed an electronic venue on his behalf and, a bit later, the birth of the expression “Armitage Army” to describe those fans.
