Today is Richard’s birthday.
Instead of waxing lyrical about him
I think it’s time to start another blogging challenge!
*cue trumpets and fanfare*
So you know how I like to modify already existing blogging challenges to fit my needs, right? Well, my friend just started the 365 day Music Challenge…I am NOT going to blog for 365 days straight! *yikes* but I did start answering the questions just for fun. I only made it to #66 before I gave up.
Since I always say that everything comes back to Richard, I’m going to adapt those questions for a new RA Challenge. A very random RA Challenge that very loosely resembles the original questions but I’ll also answer the music questions too because: why not? At the beginning my interpretations stayed normal enough without repeating questions that I’ve done in other Challenges (what is this now, number 3? 4? I think I may be a Challenge whore *blushes*) but the further along it went the more slap-happy I became. I hope you’ll stick around and join me for the madness.
Music & More Challenge
1.) a favorite recent interview
Can I just say how much I am enjoying Richard and Max doing promos together? There’s an easy camaraderie between them that is nice to see. Although having teenage sons seems to be rubbing off on Richard’s posture. Sit up straight! Square those shoulders! (that was said in my Dad’s voice, in case you didn’t recognize it).
I like how both Richard and Max seem to be in awe of Sarah’s weather knowledge in preparation for her role as Allison. They even go so far as to suggest that she’s the real hero of the story. interesting.
Richard seems to be at ease in this interview, smirking at Max while he’s talking, using a multitude of hand gestures himself (was that supposed to be a shark?), and making up more words (“found-footish” sounds legit to me. but then so does “strategery”, so maybe I’m not the best judge). I liked when he referred to Donnie and Trey as his boys too, it made me feel all gooey.
and the surprise Richard exhibits when he finds out Weta worked on some of the special effects in the movie was cute too. As was the red-telephone-box-bit. Think it through, Armitage! totally sounds like something that would come out of my mouth. I may just have to steal it.
and now the Music part of the Challenge
your favorite song today: Haunted by Sinead O’Conner & Shane MacGowan
he’s kind of shy
but that’s the kind of girl I am,
he’s my kind of guy
