i just wanted to say THAKN YOU to all the people who sent me an ask or a msg over chat about my fake subs and how they made you laugh, or how much you enjoy them.
thank you for taking the time to write out such kind words, i didn’t even think these fake subs could make people laugh out loud or cheer up so many shitty days so thats really cool. i dont reply to all of them but know that i read and appreciate every single one
Ok so yesterday I was randomly rewatching a British-German mini series set during WWII that deals with The Sinking of the Laconia (which was a passenger ship torpedoed by a German U-boat and the survivors then saved by the same U-boat… it’s a wild story but true). Anyway, I first saw this years ago but when I saw it now, I noticed this lady hanging around in the background-
-and I was like, wait, what, that’s- THAT’S MIRANDA! 😱😍(aka Louise Barnes)
This two-parter was a co-production of the BBC Two with a German broadcaster and the cast is made up mostly of Brits (like Brian Cox, Andrew Buchan…) and Germans (like Ken Duken, Franka Potente…). So I was completely surprised by Louise showing up. Especially since I’d seen this before (but that was before I saw Black Sails and she’s only in this for like 3 short scenes tbf). Anyway, I figured they shot this in South Africa and yep, turns out they did.
She plays the mother of two young children. And this is about the sinking of a ship. And… well, you can figure out the rest.
Her being in it at all was a pleasant surprise though lol But I kept on watching and there was more. Lo and behold-
IT’S FUCKING LORD ALFRED HAMILTON!!! The actor plays a British general and while not as vile as Alfred Hamilton, the character’s a bit of a twat lol Typecast much? lol And he actually has, like, dialogue scenes and stuff.
But the best was still to come. Because look who I spotted later-
IT’S DUFRESNE #1!!! (aka Jannes Eiselen) The superior Dufresne 😢 RIP, man, RIP. This was both a pleasant and a sad surprise. What happened to the actor was so tragic :(
Here he’s playing an American radio operator… the Americans are all portrayed as buffoons tbh (which is kiiiinda true to how they acted in history when it comes to this particular incident though) and his character’s like the anti-Dufresne, strutting around with sunglasses and shit. It’s kinda hilarious.
Anyway that’s my random trivia broadcast of the evening, thanks for listening in :)
Okay, so I have a cute little story. A bit after I came out to my family, my mom picked up my drunk brother at a party and he had this theory he just HAD to share with mom, and mom was just preparing to hear some weird shit because my brother is SUPER honest when drunk. Anyways he went like “Okay mom, listen. You know how Ida ALWAYS dye her hair right?” And mom was like, ok where is he going with this. And he was like “Ok, but listen mom. Ida has probably been dying her hair because she has been bisexual all this time and she didn’t know!!!!!! She has been dying her hair because she is a rainbow girl mom!!! A RAINBOW GIRL, ISNT THAT COOL.” So my mom had laughed and listen when she told me I just smiled, this is the most adorable thing he has ever called me, and I mean I’ve known my sexuality for years, but it’s cute that he did have this wonderful little drunk theory about me lmfao.
