Gimli! And the specs add at least 50 points to any dwarvish IQ; it's probably in the rules to Warhamster or something..

Jayne said...

Amazing how many beards come out ginger!

leonie said...

will this series also include the facial hair of female comedic writers?

has the blue cat forum been crashed by beards as well?

james henry said...

I think so - it hasn't worked for ages. I'm going to take the link down now in fact.

patroclus said...

In my continuing inability to believe in the existence of an individual and separate Richard, I contest that the 'Richard' in that photo is merely an upside-down simulacrum of James, right down to the grey patches.

Have I overstepped the mark yet?

JonnyB said...

It goes quite nicely with the shelving.

james henry said...

I like to think that photo in the background, top of the shelving, in front of the speaker is the same picture. If you see what I mean

Glad you survived your Cornwall jaunt jonnyb (not jaunt like the Tomorrow People, that was a kind of limited range teleportation).

Patch - richard is a whizz at the photoshop, so it is possible...

James has a nose in his forehead! No wonder he never gets cameos in GW.

The forum works sporadically - please don't take the link away!

Oh, you already had. Spoilsport.

Arrive bored, leave disturbed.
A fair exchange I think.

ellie said...

looks rather alarmingly like my father too. Hmmm.

richard said...

"richard is a whizz at the photoshop, so it is possible..."

Not so much a whizz that when carefully cutting out the beard and positioning it over the blue cat logo he remembered to save the sodding file.
argh.

baggiebird said...

Bemused ! Can't wait to see the rest in the series.

Kate said...

Blimey James, someone else who remembers the Tomorrow People. Next you'll be referencing Ace of Wands..

richard said...

On the Photoshop front, I did remmber to save Julian Rhind-Lisa (cut and paste the url):

james henry said...

Right, well, no sleep for me tonight then..

I'm to look up Ace of Wands now.

patroclus said...

>>I like to think that photo in the background, top of the shelving, in front of the speaker is the same picture. If you see what I mean.<<

Ah, the Infinite Richard Project.

Meanwhile...round of applause for the Julian Rhind-Lisa picture. That's almost disturbingly impressive.

Hm, I seem to have far too much to say for myself today.

james henry said...

Indeed, young lady.

Alli said...

Ahhh, that elusive Julian Rhind-Lisa smile... he really is quite beautiful (as a woman)

Sal said...

Like alli said, that Rhind-Tutt smile, pretty unmistakable I'd say. What an image though....

Who is this Dave? said...

I have a beard. A real one. It too is longer than the hair on top of my head.

However, I'm not a Professional Writer of Comedic Material, nor is it in some way Unlikely or Unusual, so I won't mention it.

james henry said...

Ah, where would we be without the Gentleman Amateurs of the Beard World, keeping the hobby alive in these dark quintuply-bladed times? I salute you, sir.

Nugglymammoo said...

Tomorrow People? Ace of Wands? I challenge you with The Owl Service! (Twit Twoo)

Jennifer said...

Richard, that's absurdly impressive! And very oddly arousing...

Jennifer said...

Of course, you know I meant Julian Rhind-Lisa.

But I'm sure you are too. :-p

faeriequeen said...

OMG, Julian Rhind-Lisa is hilarious but also strangely disturbing in that it works so well!
