Does Richard Armitage have a secret life?

If so, might it be as an Egyptologist? Fellow fan Rebecca spotted this image on the Smithsonian Channel’s program “Secrets,” in an episode about the ten plagues of Egypt.

Don’t know about you but I’d go digging with Richard Armitage any time. Even in the hot desert!

There’s a nice picture to start my day

Pilgrimage double feature: Richard Armitage on the big screen

•August 17, 2017 • 20 Comments

So — I decided to take off today and drive to see Pilgrimage at the one Wisconsin theater that’s showing it (so far). Since it was a two hour drive each way (110 mi), I decided to see both shows while I was there. Not least because as far as I now know, his next big planned screen manifestation will be next summer, and our local/regional chain has no plans to show this film. So I didn’t want to miss any chance to see his face in large dimensions. Sadly, I was the only person in the cinema each time. This probably has something to do with where it was being shown, but it still made me feel bad; it may not even be reaching the teen male slice ’em up audience. Then again, the weather was great today and probably most people were outside.

Anywho, more about that tomorrow, because of course new things occurred to me to say. Armitage’s face did not disappoint; it had that same magical effect I’ve come to rely on.

Meanwhile here‘s another review, icymi.

Wanna double Helena Bonham Carter?

Here’s another interview with Muldowney. Evidence is mounting: I’d been hypothesizing about the two “Irish” projects (Pilgrimage and Brain on Fire) as having been undertaken for various structural reasons (the chance to work with the directors involved, the WME cooperation with the Irish Film Board), but okay, I’ve read it several times now from at least two sources: Armitage chose this project because of the script. I wish I understood more about how projects are offered to actors. On some level that information is deeply depressing.

Thinking of you and praying for you today.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. […]  In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God (Romans 8:22-27).
