Hugh Dancy

Most famous for
Black Hawk Down
Soon to be seen in 
The Sleeping Dictionary
Favourite film
Duck Soup’ – you can’t beat the Marx Brothers.
Best moment 
Filming The Sleeping Dictionary in Borneo. I had the time of my life.
Worst moment
The first time I met Lucy Punch [see right] on set. I was playing Kyle, the Orphan Warrior, in The New Adventures of Robin Hood – a terrible series. The worst moment is perhaps encapsulated in one of my lines: “The orphanage! It’s on fire!"

Gundam Barbatos. Whichever form you prefer.

My favourite version is the “complete” form of the original. This design was probably my favourite part of early GIBO and one of the only things that kept we watching despite weeks passing by with nothing happening. When this thing showed up it lived up to its name, with brutal attacks and a barbaric fighting style. I like how it has the same colourscheme as your traditional gundam but a radically different appearance, with feet that are almost more like claws and a massive v-fin that really made it look like some kind of medieval warlord. I’ve got to mention the weapons too, the mace was awesome (while criminally underused) and the smoothbore gun was nice as well, although there’s no excuse for the boring katana it got saddled with for a while.

The only real gripe I have is the one a lot of people have with the exposed midsection, if anything that should be one of the more heavily armored parts. Overall 8.5/10

ANOTHER thing that i love about the movies that nobody seems to care about as much as me.. DAVID THEWLIS as REMUS LUPIN…. like i know, he like most of the marauders casting was too old for the part… but idk what it is about him, he just does the role so perfectly, like people always talk about alan rickman being perfect for snape, but david thewlis just captures the sadness and comforting elements of remus so well and the portrayal of remus is one of my favourites in the entire series

i have my first adv english exam that counts towards the HSC next week. the area of study is Discovery and my teacher slammed my first draft. i just can't seem to write 'creatively' for school. do you happen to have any sort of tips/advice that could help me with writing up another draft? other than all the generic "show don't tell" "don't be cliche" etc.

Writing creatives was probably my least favourite thing for English, for both Adv and Ext. My advice to come up with a draft is to:
- go through the rubric. pick out the specific parts that you want to emulate in your story e.g. discovery is confronting, cultural discoveries, leads to new worlds etc.
- minimise your characters. it’s only gonna be anything from 700-1200 words which is not enough time to have a lot of characters. my creative only had 2, not saying this is most optimal, but just my take on it. Even just one character can be good, but you might get a curveball (like my trials) which was about ‘write about how someone else’s story enhances another’s discovery’, which works best for 2 characters. having 1-2 characters also gives you room to develop the characters more, which is what you want with an AOS creative.
- minimise dialogue. this might be an unpopular opinion, but markers dig description- you can even use the landscape to reflect your character’s mood (objective correlative). too much dialogue is hard to follow and doesn’t really flesh out what your characters’ introspection. I think about 7 lines of dialogue throughout my entire story (and I thought that was a lot already). If you use dialogue, make sure it’s actually meaningful. 
- get a setting you’re familiar with. you have one week and it’s a bit difficult to write a really good story whilst balancing the rest of your subjects. write about a common setting (and I don’t mean school and teen drama, unless you write effectively), but places you already know. of course if you research well (and i mean well), by all means, write a historical/culturally different narrative, that could really go in your favour. I wrote an australian roadtrip setting for my story. having knowledge of what a setting is already like gives it a sense of authenticity.

and most importantly,

- actually write about discovery. this sounds super obvious and stupid, but I look back at my term 4 yr 11 discovery and it was a story that had discovery in it but it wasn’t focused on discovery. the tip with discovery creatives: it’s not good because you put a discovery in it (like: wow!!! i discovered a ______!!!). it’s only good when you write about what the character learns from discovery and the ramifications it has on their perspective. I can’t even stress enough that this takes you from a basic mark to a good one. Discovery is a process, not a singular event. Write about what the character gains/loses from it. Looking at the rubric helps you a lot with this. It’s your best friend.

Good luck for your exam!!

You ever raise worms by putting an electric current to the earth? That’s what this is like.

I think my favourite scene in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure as a whole series is in Part 6 when Jolyne and Hermes are trying to get a carrier pigeon to take a CD out of the prison.

Suddenly, the main villain’s Stand shows up!

They panic because they don’t know which one of his crazy OP powers he’ll use.

Will he create an illusion to scare them?

Will he put them to sleep? 

Will he dissolve them with acid? 

Will he control their minds? 

Will he steal their memories? 

Will he steal their Stands?

But then he

HE JUST TAKES OUT A FUCKING HANDGUN

HE HAS ALL THESE CRAZY MIND BENDING POWERS AND PULLS OUT A DAMN PISTOL

IT’S LIKE IF CELL SHOWED UP TO THE CELL TOURNAMENT IN DRAGONBALL Z WITH A FUCKING SHOTGUN

I feel like people tend to imagine achilles as being big and hairy and muscle-bound but I just want to remind y’all that he apparently spent quite a long time disguised as a girl and nobody could fucking tell?? including Odysseus, who had to trick him into revealing himself, but was apparently not smart enough to figure out which of the beautiful women in front of him was a man in a dress???

so like please consider: petite fine-boned achilles. achilles with killer cheekbones and big dark eyes w long eyelashes. ppl meeting achilles and being all “you’re the one who’s supposed to be a scary warrior?” and then later he he picks up trojans twice his size and flings them across the battlefield and they’re like ‘oh’. achilles being significantly shorter than hector and needing to tilt his head back to yell at him. patroclus being able to sling achilles over his shoulder. patroclus giving achilles piggyback rides. achilles needing patroclus to reach stuff down for him sometimes. achilles being the little spoon. tiny pretty achilles okay

Do u have​ a comic book for sale? I'd love to buy it if u do. Your art-style is gorgeous!

I do yes, it’s called It’s All Absolutely Fine. All the links to buy it are here 

It’s bright yellow, and my favourite review so far is by a woman who didn’t read the amazon page properly, thought it was Allie Brosh’s next book so ordered it and was, in the end, only semi-disappointed at having to read something that wasn’t Allie Brosh’s next book.
