Here’s another little scene with Tom Hardy from Candy Chops - the comedy show which sadly never aired. It’s about aspiring rapper Ethx - who seems to be working at a hospital when he’s not rapping.
The other guy is Chris Obi (from whose demo reel I found this little clip) who also directed the short Perfect wherein Tom plays a doctor.
chinchy188 asked: Have I officially missed the cut-off for downloading LPFOS? I didn't see the announcement that it was going offline until yesterday afternoon (my Tumblr usage was a little sporadic last week), and I didn't have a chance to download it until this morning. At first I kept getting a "bandwith exceeded" page, and now it's just saying that I don't have access permission. If I'm too late, I totally understand and I'll cope. I just want to know so I can stop checking to see if the site's back up. :(
My host decided to overstep their bounds and lock that directory and delete all the zip files. I’m putting them back up now in the same place where they’ll be for the rest of the day before disappearing at midnight.
Give it about half an hour and they should be finished uploading here.
In a live anniversary event, a cast of 100, including Benedict Cumberbatch and Dame Helen Mirren, performs scenes from 50 years of National Theatre productions.

Introducing Convert Links
Convert Links is a simple and easy to use extension allows you to convert “encrypted” links on the asks you receive to clickable links. Just click on the earth icon on the posts to convert the links.
It’s pretty experimental, so it might not catch all the creative ways to disguise links, so if you hit any links that it can’t convert, please send them to me so I can make it work better. Thank you!
yes, i am for real: i just spent 4 hours developing a real life MASS TAG REPLACER SCRIPT!
it’s going to be buggy, but i’ve tested it and it works! nothing terrible has happened to me yet! i hope it works for you too!! (◡‿◡✿)
please make sure to read the disclaimers before connecting it to your tumblr account. if you have questions or concerns please direct them to me on my twitter, @cubeghost!
and you’re welcome :)
This extension really does seem to help with reading long pieces of text on a laptop or mobile device screen; apparently I read 27% faster with it! It’s a pretty interesting, yet simple, concept. Give it a try, might help ya.
this could have made research projects so much easier. I could never get through online articles.
do you realize how much more i would be inclined to read and study a textbook if they were printed like this?
holy shit I would actually be able to read again
hi my eyes naturally cross and because of the eye training I received in elementary school, it is literally impossible for me to learn to speed-read. So I’m a slow-ass reader
this looks fucking awesome
This looks fantastic the only problem I have with is the color red is hard for me to read. I don’t know why, but bright red seems to vibrate when I try and read it.
because the biggest thing about reading is we should do it FASTER?
the bright red is hard on my eyes, but guess what, they also have a dark version, a grayscale, and a blue/purple. i grabbed the blue/purple, tested it out, it works on ao3, i’m going to love reading fic there even more now.
guys i just really want to share this with you
if you are looking for any music that you’d like just type a name of a band or a musican on the top-right search. then click on the black circle and choose “expand”. viola! now, you can continue doing this and find lots of music artists in your taste. thank you for the attention, and i hope you’ll find this post useful.
Where to download stuff
okay so i get a lot of people asking me where to download stuff/how to find things on the internet. this post is a collection of resources that i use and can vouch for completely to get pretty much anything you would want, media-wise.
- if google searching is your first stop, you can easily make it your last. learn how to google properly, use advanced search, use file type searching, use preview caches.
- piratebay is not a place you should be afraid of!! it has by far the largest collection of downloadable content you’re gonna find on the internet, and if you want to do things like download shows the day they air/get movies as soon as they leak, you need to become familiar with how the site works. Torrents are incredibly simple to use - download a torrent client like Bitorrent or Vuze (which i use), queue up what you want and let them download! Browse piratebay using its search filter or by category (i usually sort by number of seeds - any torrent with a large amount of seeders is not going to be fake, and if it is it’ll say in the comments). Head to ettv for daily tv show uploads.
- eztv, the best television torrent site bar none (we miss you, mininova!!). incredibly simple to use and easily navigable using its topbar and search functions.
- mobilism, your one-stop ebook shop. I highly recommend joining (it’s free), as you can access the advanced search option. If not, a general “mobilism + name of the book you want” google will usually do the trick.
- 8hacks - light freeware that lets you download whole 8tracks mixes.
- keepvid - direct download youtube videos in different formats and video qualities
- tehparadox - less useful now the golden era of megaupload is over, but still a great rescource if you’re looking for direct downloads for television/movies. Especially good for 720/1080p downloads.
- music-clips - direct downloads for youtube audio, downloads as an mp3
- streaming sites should not be overlooked! If you know your way around, they are incredibly useful if you want to watch shows/movies without downloading them. Most of the big sites have streaming links for shows a few hours after they’ve aired. Solarmovie, watchseries-online and watch-series are your best bets. When looking for a streaming link i usually gravitate towards putlocker or sockshare because i know and trust them as uploaders.
- tumtaser or the xkit download extension will let you download music from tumblr
- become familiar with conversion software, because not every download you find is going to be in the format you want. PDF to EPUB converters are common, I use winavi video converter to change videos to .mp4, and there are lots of FLAC/WMA to MP3 converters out there too.
- Winrar and Winzip are essentials
- resource tumblrs and individual people’s rescource tags are always good to bookmark
- if all else fails and you can’t find/get what you’re looking for, feel free to ask me. I can tell you how and where i got it, if you like.
