If you have participated and I forgot you, let me know.

silverthoughts's second entry : a study of various movie/manga/cast suggestions for Amadeo

demondoll2001's entry : a post originally from the ARML

silverthoughts's entry

Jackie even created a small website to commemorate. I have no idea what's a siggie, but there it is.
It was pointed out to me in this post by silverthoughts

And me, of course, with one post a day dedicated to him this week (though this one makes two for today), cause hey... it's what I do.

Ironically enough, among these few entries, the 2 longest ones were written by people who actually don't like Armand, and one another by a dedicated Louisian.
So Armandians, where are you? Have you abandoned him, too?

I was wondering the same thing. I heard the Lestatians are planning one. We'll just have to bomb them. heh.

I'm beginning to think that :
1) Armandians are not as dedicated as I claim
2) Armandians are selfish like the object of their affection can be
3) glad I didn't join TURAC

For Lestatians, I've found that ignoring them works best to aggravate them, much like Lestat himself ;)

The only member left of TURAC is damoyre. *sigh* And she's on vacation this week.

A siggie, I believe, is an e-mail sig. You know. The things you add at the end of your name when you post something.

Hi,

I was reading SANDMAN: The Wake, and it has lovely artwork. I thought that Daniel (the new Sandman) sorta looks like Armand. And let's face it, even the Original Morpheus is somewhat like him in his love life.

I'm unforgiveable, I haven't read the complete Sandman, actually. It's pretty difficult and expensive to put my hands on it over here. I only know Daniel from a pic in the Quotable Sandman.

Hm, the only thing I read about Sandman's love life is this mortal woman who he vowed to hell after she left him. And it is somehow Armandian, yes... Early Armand, at least.

Actually, I'm almost done reading all of the Sandman books. And yeah, he's very Armandian. His first love, Nada, rejected him so he sentenced her to suffering in Hell for a LONG time. There were 3 other loves in his life. He also abandoned his son.

Hmm....I don't want to give you spoilers since you haven't read the books. Hehe. :-)

Armand is the Vampire Armand from Anne Rice's novels the Vampire Chronicles.
Best known of young people from the movie adaptation of the 3rd novel of the series, "Queen of the Damned", with Aaliyah and Stuart Townsend, though fans cringed at so-called movie, and before that the movie "Interview with the vampire", with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

The picture on the banner (and icon) is not Armand, initially, though, as explained on the first post of the Armand Appreciation Week.
But when I saw the pic, it reminded me of him, so...

If you check my memories, under the file "Armand", you'll find links to all my entries for the AA week, and they provide various possible portraits of Armand.

I think i said if wrong 'cause you didnt understan what i meant. Of course i know who is Armand! he's my favourite character from the Vampire Chronicles =)

I was asking about the picture you used to made your icon, i know he's not Armand of course Oo but liked the picture and wanted to find the full version.

I'll check your memories so maybe i find some other pictures which i'd like, thanks *^^*
