You don't want to miss this bus :)
If Thanksgiving is already here, you know what can't be far behind...
New Lucas vid 'Breaking' by Marian..
Great laugh of the day and, if RA has seen it, you know he enjoyed a hardy chuckle as well. The following pics say it all(sort of ;) Photos from London newspaper of post '24 Hour Plays' activities. Could prompt the question 'just how much did RA enjoy the post event party anyway?' *wink,wink*

Posted on Twitter about RA's play...
>The first play was the most amusing and the audience was immediately responsive- in some instances the characters were cast as themselves with tongue and cheek allusions to their public personas. In this sketch Richard Armitage played the counter part to his on stage character, an obese forty year old man living in a run down apartment who had wished on a magic Christmas tree that he looked like Richard Armitage. Married to a well-rounded woman who had wished them into a large penthouse (suggested by the size of the small Christmas tree which had once been life-size in their ‘previous’ flat), this unlikely couple dance around and frolic with a new found zest. Each actor is asked to bring an inspirational prop, hence the appearance of a premature ornamental Christmas tree. Such clever gestures exemplified the creativity of the writers, some of which were more interesting than others.<

Game of Thrones: Mark Addy was interviewed recently in the York Press where he talks about his role in Game of Thrones. He confirms that he has finished filming and also mentions that he has heard they plan to start airing the show in April. Here is what he has to say about his role:
“I’m playing King Robert Baratheon, who has assumed power through a rebellion against the former regime – and in this game of thrones you either win or die.
“They’re pretty good stories actually. It’s a bit like Tolkien, but with sex and violence…there’s something for everyone!
“Not so much the sex for me, but there’s a little bit of violence. He’s not your standard idea of what a king would be. He’s stuck in a loveless marriage and having to make decisions he doesn’t want to. He once wanted to sit on the throne but now it’s not the bed of roses he might have wished, as he’s surrounded by enemies everywhere – and he’s a bit of a grump, which is different from what I usually play.”
Wk #1 for new to the US show 'Skating w/the Stars'. Only one competitor worth watching(meant in the kindest sense of the words;) and that's Olympic gold medal winner Jonny Moseley. He was a champion moguls skier but never ice skated until 5wks ago. Couple interesting remarks he made during rehearsals were first that his skiing skills are exactly opposite to those necessary for ice skating and second - he's never afraid he might fall on the slopes, but terrified of it on ice. The mohawk hairstyle does absolutely nothing for him...hope he jetizons that aspect of his routine next wk...the leather is kinda nice;)
