Global Armitage Watching or moRA is better!

North and South promo picture

So the North and South watch is behind us and I think we can call it a success thanks to excellent moderating skills of @ArmitageWatch no doubt we started a yearly tradition, hopefully if you missed it this year you can catch it next year or you can join us for future watching.

This whole idea came out of a conversation on twitter and since, this mantra occasionally pops into my cRAzy head:


a modified quote from Field of Dreams 🙂

I hope you find the opportunity to join any of the coming RAwatches! Check out the Armitage Watch Calendar, look for a time that suits you and if uncertain how we go about: check this out.

Porter and others

Porter and others

John Porter was a character Richard Armitage played in the Sky1 series Strike Back for more on his career check: http://www.richardarmitageonline.com/

First off check out the Queen of Porter vids: Bccmee’s YT channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/bccmee and her blog: http://fanvideos.wordpress.com

Strike Back’s HD quality makes this vids glorious for viewing apart from the subject J

I thought this would be easier having only 39 in my Porter playlist! No jiffy cutting it back to 5, I thought…

Those of you who do keep up with fanvids will miss some BIG fanvid hits.

I might come back to those later but I thought today would also be a chance to add five single minor character vids that deserve a shout out.

Generally I tend to go for those that stand out from the crowd.

The Others

Monet and Harry Kennedy are purposely missing as http://phyllysfaves.blogspot.com/ and Bccmee are showcasing some.

  • George Gently by Elvira Sweeney is very artistic in technique and music choice

  • Alex Track in Golden Hour: I Just Wanna Be Loved by BurnVillage (and we all want to be treated by Dr.Track 😉

  • John Mulligan – Your Heart is as Black as Night by Romana55 – this song says it all! The singer sweet voice in contrast with the lyrics 😉

  • Percey Courtenay in Miss Marie Lloyd – You Showed Me by GiztheGunslinger – LOVE the wickedness of this song which suits the character.

The Porter:

5. Mad World by Elvira Sweeney – this is a gorgeous eye candy vid but the song depicts so much more about the character.

4. John Porter – Have No Fear by Safy146 – shows the softer and finer moments in Strike Back and Richard Armitage; how he’s a true hero.

3. 24th by Campcurry – I’ve always loved this song and its perfectly used.

2. Seven Nation Army by GiztheGunslinger, love how she uses the beats of the music with special effects!

1. My Body is a Cage by Bccmee – this vid was my introduction to this song; obviously it struck home!
