"The existence of stuff you don't enjoy is not a personal insult. Be nice."

My side-blog which gets updated ...randomly. Has recently fallen prey to a distraction called Matilda.


The owner of this blog is fully uncaring of who you think is overrated, underrated, siderated or just potentially a bit askew, has issues when it comes to answering messages in timely manner, tends to be grumpy for no reason at all but doesn't bite unless asked to.

...plus tends to write stuff on this sidebar and then forget all about it.

Scanning teeny tiny pictures…

are these from the old flyers? I’ve always debated wether or not these were worth scanning or not, my scanner sucks though.

That they are.

And in today’s episode of killing time…There’s paper plane instructions on the Matilda Oz site (if you know where to look), the one on the right kind, which is weird because as it turns out, reverse one of the folds and you end up with the show plane style.

Interview: Isobelle Molloy

Isobelle Molloy is a 14 year old English actress who is best known for playing the roles of Matilda in the West end production of Matilda and Young Maleficent in the 2014 Disney film Maleficent - a family film which tells the tale of the villain of Sleeping Beauty and her side of the story.

Hi, Isobelle! How are you?
Hi! I’m good thank you!
We loved your performance as young Maleficent in the film Maleficent - how did the part come about?
Well I go to Tomorrow’s Talent Theatre School which set me up for an audition when I was a bit younger and I wasn’t quite sure what it was I was auditioning for but I ended up going for a screen test which was really cool and got the part.
This was your debut on the big screen, which is amazing! How does acting in films differ to acting live on stage?
Well, they’re both really different but you still get such a good adrenaline and buzz from both of them which is great.
You’ve also previously played the part of Matilda in the West End musical, how did you manage to land the part?
My theatre school, again, set up the audition and I ended up going back and forth 11 times and got the part.
How do you balance school and acting - is it difficult?
The theatre school is really supportive and we do a mix of both normal work and theatre work so I could have maths and then ballet.
You started your career at a young age - what do you think the benefits and drawbacks are of that?
The good thing is you get a lot of training from a young age although sometimes it can be quite daunting but it’s mainly really good.
If you could star in a film with any actor or actress in the world, who would it be and why?
That’s a really hard question! There’s a lot of actors I like but I really would like to work with the director of Maleficent, Robert Stromberg, again.
What sort of film genres are you particularly interested in acting in?
I like watching family comedy but I would like to be able to play more serious roles.
Would you rather stick to doing more films or going back to just theatre work?
I’m not sure because I love them both so I’d really like to be able to mix them both and do a bit of film and theatre.
What’s next for you this year?
In November I’ll be in the Sound of Music playing Louisa and then after that I’m just practising and getting on with school.
What advice would you give to other young people who may want to follow in your footsteps?
I’d say follow your ambitions and dreams and make sure you work really hard.

I wanted to write this song that shows us a 6-year-old with incredible insight and yet the innocence of a 6-year-old, so she talks about subjective interpretation of color and then she talks about relativity and the speed of light and she’s trying to look for something and eventually she just says ‘I’m not quite explaining it right’ and she says ‘I think I’m different from my friends’, you know, and it’s just like so naive and you think ‘yeah, kid, you are pretty different from your friends’

ABC Classic Fm - Midday - 15 Oct, 2014
[Quiet plays]
Margaret: The song Quiet from Matilda the Musical, that's from the London cast recording, music and lyrics by Tim Minchin, who is sitting opposite me today. Tim, welcome to the program.
Tim: Thank you very much for having me.
M: Tell me what you... You listened to that very carefully, tell me what you're thinking when you hear it.
T: I don't listen to my own stuff very much and I haven't listened to that recording for a long time. When I see the show live obviously there's a lot more going on, so it's nice to hear that recording and the orchestrations. Chris Nightingale's orchestrations got expanded for Broadway cause their union insists you have a certain amount of people in the pit. It's quite weird, they have musos that go and sit through shows and play nothing just to fulfill it...anyway, that's another whole conversation. We didn't do that, we expanded the arrangements, so hearing that with just the cello being the only live string instrument in it and that clarinet line in the end it's...
M: Lovely.
T. it's pretty good, yeah.

Oh Timmy. I know you don’t have much to do with the day-to-day stuff that goes on with Matilda but would you stop saying there are only three girls playing Matilda in NY.
