Detals about Strike Back HERE

On Northpole Music HERE

"STRIKE BACK is Sky1′s hugely succesful flagship drama series. Scott scored this with Ilan Eshkeri. Together they recorded a symphonic brass section which they mixed with rock guitars, pounding drums and subtle textures giving it an exciting, heroic, military feel. It was filmed across three exciting locations which meant they were able to add new ethnic musical flavours with a wide range of top soloists."

Hobbit - Dwarves in big gif

At last I finished this one :) I'm waiting for promos with Bilbo and Gandalf, to make this one complete :) But for now only dwarves :) 4 hours of making = watching North&South :)


Plus my new forum combo :) A little different quote ;D from Jess and RA :)

Photobucket Photobucket

And again...

Yeap again this day.. Not sure If I'm happy or not.

This is my band from hospital - "C" means córka/daughter. Now fits on my two fingers :)


I don't remember my bdays. I'm envy of these who remember. How this is possible? Well I remember some of them. Like my 7th, 18th. And some which I remember what happend, but don't remember when it was. Oh and one when I was drunk first time and last time drunk like this, but this one wasn't happy Bday. I don't have any alcohol now at home, so probably not drinking today.

I don't look at my age. Couple years ago somebody asked me if I'm still in highschool. Yes, I was in highschool...working there. In my work was really cold in winter, and for couple of weeks I was in some kind of hibernation, so this probably stopped ageing process. I consider that I'm looking older now, but this is probably matter of the clothes, teenagers have different style today. But honestly this kind of look isn't a blessing. This is real curse. And really better to look on your age than not. Sometimes I have to show my ID, because people don't believe me. You can't just meet someone in your age, because when You are going somewhere, they are thinking that You are much younger and are not interesting of talking with You.

And... sometimes when I'm looking at me in mirror, I'm asking myself: "Is this really me?". I'm not feeling these all years. I don't know who said this, maybe Jung, that some people are born old, but some like they are not born yet. I'm feeling like this, like my body is here, but mind and soul are somewhere, in different place, in past. Like I'm not belong here. I'm just living, but not exactly feeling this time. I'm making decisions and I try to make all set, but ... yes but... I'm not sure why I'm doing these all things. Maybe this because I was born after term. Like I wasn't sure If I wish to be born. I was in breech positioning, not even head down. Which is very rare. My term was at 20/21/22 August..Yes I know... ;D

But I'm feeling that everyone of us has their own work to do on this world and in this time. Maybe this is some serious task, or maybe we are to help others be better, and others are making us better. Or just to be to understand what happend here, to not making mistakes in next life.
Some are saying that in time of death they can see all their life. Wonder what I will see? Maybe real life begin not when we are born, but when we are in some age. When we are really ready to life.

P.S. Do You know what I really wish to have on Bday pressie? :)

How to say WASSAIL in Summer? SUMSAIL?



Words of Our Fav Fellow himself with regards to Annette's site RichardArmitageOnline.

25th August 2011

Dear Friends,

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for all the kind gifts which have been sent to me over the last few weeks, for my birthday; so many gifts, cards and emails of good wishes from all over the world. (Poland, Ukraine, Japan, Russia, Germany, Korea, Itlay, USA, Canada, Netherlands and all over the UK)

I will be so 'well read', drunk, fat, warm and sweet smelling thanks to your generosity.

I am particularly excited to let you know that the "Just Giving" donations to our four charities has reached an amazing £11,933! In addition to donations to Oxfam and Christchurch Earthquake appeal, which I find both thoughtful and moving.

I am afraid there may be some delay in remitting thank you letters and any requests for signing photos, as I am in New Zealand for the rest of the year, but am working on a system to remedy this.

So middle age has arrived and apparently 'life now begins'. I look forward to the next chapter, there is nowhere I would rather be at this moment than exploring "Middle Earth" with my new family of Dwarves, Elves, Men, Wizard and Hobbit. What a gift to be here, in this place, at this time. I can't wait to share it with everyone. I am a very fortunate man.

Much love

WE ARE SPOILED!!! Another FANTASTIC message! This is really VERY International Fanbase! I had tears in my eyes when I was reading this first time. And all day is fantastic! This is like gift for all fans! And BIG BRAVO to those who have BIG HEARTS and are ready to help! :) There is something in this voice! 639 Hz! ;D Nope :) Just RA IS DA MAN!!!!

Thank You to Retrophon

In your eyes I can see that you're cracking up
In your eyes I can see that you've had enough
and It pains my head

In your eyes I can see that you're cracking up
In your eyes I can see that you fell In love
and It pains my head

In your eyes I can see that you're cracking up
(what If It would just)
and It pains my head
In your eyes I can see that you fell In love
(what If It would just)
and It pains my head
In your eyes I can see-come Into me
(what If It would just come Into me)
and It pains my head
In your eyes I can see-come Into me
(what If It would just come Into me)
and It pains my head

I'm In thIs love, I'm In
I'm In thIs love, I'm In thIs love
I'm In thIs love, I'm In
I'm In thIs love, I'm In thIs love

why should I wait, maybe I fall.
(turn the radio, turn the radio on now)
love Isn't waiting for me.
why should I wait, maybe I fall.
(turn the radio, turn the radio on now)
love Isn't waiting for me.

What If It all were to change love?
I thought It would.

How to say WASSAIL in Summer? SUMSAIL? Nope. Problem is that in NZ is now winter and they have not Christmas now. :| But another message is like early XMAS! :)

Little celebration

I have little celebration today. We call it: "Name day" - imieniny. From Wiki HERE. This is mostly first day with this name in calendar after Your Birthday. But my parents said that they prefer this one day today, because in this same day my granny had her name day ;D but she had different name - Franciszka :). So we had double celebration. Easy to remember for men. Specially my dad. BTW He chose my name after my second grandma, who died before my birthday.
In Poland when You are getting older this is probably the only day which You are celebrating with friends, because some women haven't wish to say how old they are. Birthdays are only for familly ;D

Well the other thing is that with Your name is some kind of connection with your saint patron. My mum was searching and she found that my patron should be Saint Jeanne of the Cross Delanoue (On Saints HERE, On Vatican.va HERE), because her date of death is very closer to my birthday and because she encountered a poor widow and pilgrim from Rennes, named Francoise Fouchet. So my Granny name was Francoise.


But I consider that I'm much more relative with Joan of Arc ;D

Redheaded men Part 3 : Craig Hawks - Interview for Mov-e July 7th 2011 by Len

Interview for Mov-e July 7th 2011 by Len

Thank You to MOV-E and Len for this article

Rising Star: Craig Hawks Hourquebie

Screen by me from "Rancid"

.MOV-e stalked Craig Hawks while he did some hardcore zombie killing in Rancid, the new horror by Kamikaze Motion Pictures. Learn more about this rising star as we chat to him about his experiences as an actor and his thoughts on the industry.

Popcorn Facts: I love books (fantasy), tattoos and walking my dog in the park
Age: 28
From: Durban
Star Sign: Pisces
Eye Colour: Brown
Hobbies: Riding my motorcycle and playing sports
Favourite Music: Rock
Favourite TV Shows: Supernatural/ Lie to me/ Fringe/ Entourage
Favourite Food: Spaghetti Blob
Favourite Beverage: Jack Daniels
Craig Hawks Rising Star Interview

.MOV-e: First off, how does one pronounce your surname?
Craig: Well my screen name…. easy enough is as written Hawks. My legal name is a different story Hourquebie pronounced “Hawk a bee”

.MOV-e: When did you realize you wanted to work in the entertainment industry?
Craig: All through my school days I got myself involved in every piece of theatre I could… I was also an avid sportsman and loved the idea of fast paced action in film and characters whose lives were based in impossible situations we as normal people couldn’t get to. How to experience these stories and places was clear to me: be an actor. Tell these characters’ stories and live them in performance. I went to AFDA film academy directly out of school and fell in love with doing just that.

Craig Hawks talks to us about his life as an actor in South Africa

.MOV-e: As an actor, how did you break into the South African film industry? Did you have formal training, have contacts within the industry, or did you just wing it?
Craig: I studied at AFDA as I said earlier, got myself a great agent and started working hard on being the actor I wanted to be. Auditions came next and still come and I prepare as best I can for the pieces I really want. Its not easy in South Africa but things are growing and not being an actor is just not an option for me.

.MOV-e: Do you think that one must have formal training of sorts to become involved in the SA Film industry, or can passion alone make one a star?
Craig: I’m not sure if formal training is a necessity. There are many actors out there who never went that route, so I think the most important thing is passion and drive; it gets tough when things get quiet and it comes down to staying power and drive that gets us through: belief in the fact that the next role is just around the corner.

.MOV-e: How about an agent? Is it vital to have an agent in order to get work in SA Television or movies?
Craig: It is impossible without one. A good agent is vital as an actor, it is so important to have an agent who you have a relationship with; someone who understands you.
I have a fantastic Agent who I consider to be a good friend. They are the ones you get the briefs from and establish the connections through. They arrange the contracts and all the nitty gritty, and are your vital tool number one!

.MOV-e: Is acting a full-time gig for you, or do you have a secret identity as a blue collar slave to ensure that the bills get paid?
Craig: It is a full time thing for me, no blue collar, no desk.

.MOV-e: You played a vital role in Alastair Orr’s feature film, The Unforgiving. How did you land the role and how did you experience the filmmaking process?
Craig: Alastair Orr is a great director and a phenomenal editor, we studied together at college where we became acquainted. He called me and asked me to read for the role of Vincent and things went from there. I consider him a good friend now and love working on his projects. The Unforgiving was a rugged and tough process, it was gorilla film making in its raw format and required a lot of focus. I learnt so much as an actor and would never trade the experience. It was amazing.

.MOV-e: Word has it that you also star in Alastair’s second movie, Rancid. Tell us more about the character you’re portraying this time around.
Craig: I do. My characters name is Reese, he is a private SWAT for a medical corporation named Gentek. He is a dedicated worker who loves his job and does it better than most. He starts to question his role in this testing process and when he finds Megan (played by Christien Le Roux) he finds a choice being made for him by his questioning faith and a snowball effect that leads to extraordinary circumstances and a rollercoaster ride ensues.

.MOV-e: Were there any lessons that you learned while acting in The Unforgiving that helped you improve your performance in Rancid?
Craig: There were too many to name. Most importantly I learnt the value of character preparation and building of relationships with not only the director but also the characters and actors around you. Teamwork and focus! Rancid is the first time I feel like my character has become a part of where I see myself and vice versa. I loved the process.

.MOV-e: In Rancid, you’re playing alongside the likes of Brandon Auret. Did you find this intimidating at all?
Craig: I knew Brandon as a friend before filming process began and this was our first time filming together. He is an amazing actor who gives nothing but his best every time and rather than being intimidating it is an excitement that takes a hold of you as you are given the opportunity to give everything and fully “go there” as an actor.

.MOV-e: How do you prepare for a role? Is there anything specific you do to get yourself into a certain frame-of-mind?
Craig: Well it is always character dependant. For Rancid I did a good amount of character prep, creating a back story and persona best suited to this type of person. I enjoy developing a character from my own person try to develop what would be a real character with real depth and emotion. I did a good amount of training to give him an imposing frame, gun handling and took time to develop a look I thought would bring out a rough and rugged exterior of a man who has seen things and come out the other side.

.MOV-e: What parts in The Unforgiving and Rancid were the most challenging for you, and why?
Craig: For the Unforgiving it was the cold. We shot in the early hours in winter and I was in a vest and had water constantly being sprayed on me. It takes a lot of focus to stay in character. For Rancid it was the physical challenge, we do all our own stunts and my character is a mover and a fighter; but I must say the challenge was second to my enjoyment.

.MOV-e: What’s the harshest critique you’ve ever received and how did you deal with it?
Craig: I don’t really recall to be honest, though it must be said there must be some corkers. I guess you have to take the good and the bad, learn from them and use them to help you grow. It’s the nature of what we do, people will judge your every decision on the screen so prepare well and hopefully the critique is in your favor.

.MOV-e: Are you happy being an actor, or would you one day like to dabble in the dark arts of directing as well?
Craig: I am very happy as an actor and feel like I am constantly learning how the craft works. I haven’t really though about directing but think I would relish the opportunity later in my career.

.MOV-e: Who is your favourite local Director, Actor, and Actress?
Director - Locally the director has to be Alastair Orr, he is an innovator and has a wicked sense of humor.
Actor - Michael Ray Thompson who plays Dom in Rancid and my brother Clinton Hawks who is different from me in so many ways and I really enjoy his work.
Actress - Kim Engelbrecht.

.MOV-e: What are your thoughts on the future of South African movies?
Craig: I think we are going from strength to strength in the film industry and our future gets brighter by the year.

.MOV-e: Any projects that you have in the pipeline that we’re allowed to know about?
Craig: Well for now it’s all focused toward Rancid

.MOV-e: What would your dream project be?
Craig: I don’t have a dream project per say but would love to play in a proper large scale South African Rugby film and, as always, a Superhero/vigilante film.

.MOV-e: What would be the best way for someone to get hold of you if they would like to approach you for their music videos, television adverts, or films?
Craig: Through my agent, Owen S. Management.

Silly Question Time! (Answer these as quickly as you can)

What’s the last book you read?
Gardens of the Moon Steven Erikson

What’s the last movie you saw?
X-men first class

If you were a Superhero, what would your powers be?
Strength and speed

List 5 items in your fridge right now!
Apples, eggs, cheese, yogurt and Nando’s Hot peri peri

You are stranded on a deserted island for 6 months. What 3 things would you want with you?
A sharp knife, matches and my dog

We would like to thank Craig for sharing his insights with us and would like you all to support him by watching Rancid when it hits our big screens.

Strike Back Project Dawn title music by The Heavy



Strike Back Project Dawn title music by The Heavy

"Short change hero"

I can't see where you're comin' from
But I know just what you're runnin' from
And what matters thinkin' who's baddest but the
Ones who stop you falling from your ladder

When you feel like you're feeling now
And doin' things just to please your crowd
When I love you like the way I love you
And I suffer but I ain't gonna cut you 'cause

This ain't no place for no hero
This ain't no place for no better man
This ain't no place for no hero
To go home

This ain't no place for no hero
This ain't no place for no better man
This ain't no place for no hero
To go home

And every time I close my eyes
I think, I think about you inside

And your mother givin' up on asking why
Why you lie and you cheat
and you try to make a fool out of she

I can't see where you're comin' from
But I know just what you're runnin' from
And what matters thinkin' who's baddest but the
Ones who stop you falling from your ladder, cause

This ain't no place for no hero
This ain't no place for no better man
This ain't no place for no hero
To go home

This ain't no place for no hero
This ain't no place for no better man
This ain't no place for no hero
To go home

Strike Back site working again

In Friday is new Premiere of Strike Back. This time it calls Strike Back Project Dawn. This time with new guys


I really miss Layla Thompson there :/ This girl has balls!

Thank You Sky for promos





Kofola Country Welcome To!

This is my blog, this is not blog only about Richard. Sorry Dude! I really like You! But I can't posting only about You. ;D

PhotobucketPhotobucketToday I was on really nice trip to Kofola Country! Czech Republic. Weather was great not so warm, but sunny.
As I was posting in may: "She was alternative in '60 to "imperial" CocaCola and Pepsi. She is made from special Kofo Sirup and honestly IMHO this is the best drink on the World!" This was probably the only reason to go there.

But this time I discovered another great drink. Chocolate water Korunni HERE This water is like chocolate. It is in sale since Feb 1st. 2011. Taste is amazing! IS really rich and not sour at the end.
There were some snacks for Bilbo's Party after killing Smaug. E-free.

PhotobucketAnd of course there were some sources of fun. But not for me now.

PhotobucketPhotobucketWe were on some nice trip through Masarykovy sady this is some kind of garden in Cieszyn.
Who was Masaryk? Well He was like Oliver Cromwell for Britain and like Józef Piłsudski for Poland. HERE on Wikipedia You can read more. On this street are many beautiful buildings, and this is really nice place to seat and rest.
PhotobucketThe Parish and Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

And this is the oldest building in Cesky Tesin


And this is Orginal from UK in Czech. Not to buy in my country in ordinary shop.

Thanks to MrTommy91 for this vid

I saw some Gaskell books in Czech: Cranford (Cranfordské dámy) and Cranford, well I should say this same book. But no North & South.

Don't piss me off!

I have to remind You about something. This is my blog. Some people only are checking if there is something new from RA part. Not even commenting. Posting my cuts all over the internet! I can live with it, but I'm really pissed, because You gals posting my arts on tumblr and on other sites! Yes this one is my and this one and this!

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

And BAFTA Glamour is my too.


They are not very artistic BUT THEY ARE MINE! There are my filters on these pics! YOU ARE POSTING THESE AND DON'T EVEN MENTION FROM WHERE YOU HAVE THEM!!!!!!!!


So from now these can be only posted on C19 by my friends there.

Don't piss me more off, because I'm a real fucking fighter now! And I really don't care what You are thinking!

From Tumblr.
Thank You RecycledVinyl for adding credits. Problem with english is that "You" is the same in singular and in plural. And this is not aimet at You.

I made many of screens which You All are using - e.g ON ARMITAGENET - Cleopatra. For 3 years I was making screens. There is large number of screens, but art is very personal. I consider that You will not making something like this with Heathra's, Angela's, Kiteflier's etc. arts. I just don't have wish that others manage mine. You know what is this? CLICKIE HERE This one is from my blog too. And I really had no wish to see this one, in this gallery. Hazular and You all do You know why Your Tumblrs are looking like this? Because of others, who are making gifs, arts, screens, searching for photos etc. We all are using these same photos. And honestly You should know the difference in that photo. This is Original 2007 and there isn't in internet bigger version. And this is my HERE. You are posting originals many times and don't even remember how they are look like. BTW Hazular You should say this same what You wrote to Yourself. Think about it when You wish to make something and than nobody wish to add credits to this what You made. How You feel about it?

My reaction isn't pleasant and I'm not sorry for being human, but honestly what You All expected? Why You are thinking if art has not mark that has not author? Do you know who made this manip with Richard as Vampire? (this one is from promo photo to Robin Hood season 2) or this one with Richard as devil (promo photo to Robin Hood Season 1) or merman (promo photo to Spooks season 7)? Nobody probably remember..yes lost in time, how conveniently. But I good remember who made it. So I tell You: Liquoricelolly. Next time Please add credit to her too. If You adore her work.

Long szlong


PhotobucketPhotobucketI wasn't posting at monday, because I was drinking beer (Pilsner Urquel of course!). And I have really weak head to this kind of drinks. And I was ridding in tram to hell with 666 numer on it. So now nothing can scare me! Well You working hard and You don't have money for vacation, to go somewhere. Well You can, but You should take credit, and be grounded for something about more than year. I like my home and I have many things to do in my home, so I don't have problems with vacation. Of course I wish to see some other countries, but not at all costs. I have many things to discover even sitting in my home. 
PhotobucketPhotobucketNow I'm drinking cherry "Lubelska Wiśniówka" and now I know how are felling all grannies who have cherry bottles in their pockets and taking gulp from time to time. It is only 100ml and 34% of alcohol, but this probably will kill me tomorrow. Did You fell this kind of smart on tongue at the beginning when You are drinking cherry? After this is funny feeling, that You can't stop laughing. And I'm watching North&South and writting on Blogger in this same time. Oh and Thornton beating Stephens! OMG! I love this shouting!

Check this out on Chirbit

INSANE!!! Polish vodka is really good. For gourmets. Well I don't know from experience, but I'd heard. I mean Insane is Thornton shouting not polish vodka.
PhotobucketBut I'm not only drinking. This cherry is my last before my B-day in august. I'm eating too :) mostly apples and my fav fruits - Peaches! This time I have apples from NZ but with number 94174 Royal Gala. YAY!!! "Organically grown! Well done, no nasties on that fruit!"

Fruit Sticker 94174: Apples, Royal Gala from New Zealand HERE

At last I had time to buy some more books. My new are:
From Heyer: Hazardzistka - Faro's daughter, Maskarada - The Masqueraders, Rezolutna - Reluctant widow.


PhotobucketPhotobucketAnd at last I bought this audiobook "Wuthering Heights" on sale for 1/4 price! I was thinking of this one and thinking and still this was too much for me - 10 euro. And voila! Power of the subconscious! Why You not always work!?

PhotobucketPhotobucketOk a teraz coś dla Polskich fanów "Północ-Południe": W nowej "Olivii" jest konkurs, w którym można wygrać książkę "Północ-Południe" z wydawnictwa Elipsa, wystarczy tylko wysłać wiadomość SMS na numer 72207 o treści OLIVIA.KULTURA, a potem odpowiedzieć na nadesłane pytanie.
