we'll ride in the gathering storm

Oh no no, take me from my misery
There's no such, thing as living comfortably
There's no such, thing as going home
I'm not formed of myself alone
All the others, they just fade to black.

Also, this is one of the best interviews I’ve read with Richard Armitage for The Hobbit.

There was another series that I was involved in called “Strike Back”, which unfortunately I had to walk away from. The prospect of sitting in a cinema watching another actor play Thorin when I’d been offered the role - I mean sometimes that happens, sometimes you do have to walk away from roles or you can’t make it work with dates - I couldn’t have lived with myself seeing someone else play him. I would rather have given up my career for that. And actually I said to Pete when I got down there, “if this is that last piece of work I ever do, I’ll be a happy man and a happy actor.” I still feel that. If I never work again, I’ve had the most fulfilling experience an actor can have with this role.
