By the way, in case you wondered where the Ambarussa website went – ye olde hoste was hacked and malicious codes spread all over the place. It took me days to fix everything. (The site for the animal shelter we support was completely razed and couldn’t be restored, so thanks for nothing, Unknown Idiots from Fuckwitia. Plague and pestilence on your houses.)

Movie News: Damian O’Hare in “Zoo”

Damian O’Hare AND elephants (elephants! Yay elephants!) – could it possibly get any better?
(Hardly. Well – Damian O’Hare and baby sloths, maybe…)

In 1941 marksmen from the Royal Ulster Constabulary, following a Directive from The Ministry of Public Security, shot dead 23 animals at Belfast Zoo. They destroyed one hyena, six wolves, one puma, one tiger, one black bear, one Barbary lion, two polar bears, one lynx and giant rat named Hugo. During these turbulent times, a woman secretly walked a young elephant from the zoo each evening to the backyard of her terraced home. There, she cared for and comforted it as the Luftwaffe bombs rained down over Belfast. This is a true story… and our setting for Zoo.

Seen through the eyes of 10 year old Tom, aided and abetted by his misfit friends, this moving adventure unfolds as Tom takes on the fight to save Buster the elephant.

Watch a short movie on their indiegogo site (can I just say that I LOVE the fact that this was crowdfunded!)

PotC then and now, plus a Damian O’Hare lookalike

Screencrush wants you to see the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl” cast then and now, which is totally not the same as “where are they now”. I’m very pleased to see that Lt. Gillette is listed as well (after Ragetti and before Mr. Gibbs!)

In completely unrelated news, Renee from Kentucky mailed:

“Damian is on awkwardfamilyphotos and he sparkles!”

Phew. No, it’s not him.

Happy Birthday to us! Party with us and help School Kids getting a decent Breakfast!

On 12 August 2012, it will be five years that we provide the world with information on Irish actor Damian O’Hare’s work. Which just goes to show that ideas conceived at 3am after a pub crawl don’t necessarily have to be bad (though we’re glad we didn’t go for calling the site “D’Oh!”)

Running such a website is only fun if the fans to go with it don’t take things seriously, and luckily, that’s the case with ambarussa.net. Thanks a lot to all of you who contributed to the website, for mailing news, making screencaps and all the silly discussions.
(I still think “Dr. Burnett carrying kittens in a basket to safety from a burning house while single-handedly rescuing  30 girlscouts/nuns/vicars from a bus stuck in a ditch” would have made an awesome episode for “The Royal”!)

Thanks also to Damian O’Hare; we’d never made it to five years if he’d decided to drop acting and become a plumber. The people who “discovered” him in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies continued to follow his work all through the years, from The Royal to Taking the Flak to Hatfields & McCoys. If you manage to get and keep such a loyal fanbase, you know you’re good at what you’re doing.

So – party! We won’t share the cake, but we want to share the food: to celebrate five years of ambarussa.net, we’ve set up a fundraising site over at justgiving.com for “Magic Breakfast”, a charity which provides a decent breakfast for some of those 700,000 children who arrive at school too hungry to learn every day. All you have to do is click the button below, get more information and, if you feel like and can afford it, share a quid or two.  Your donation will make the wee ones happy, it will make the charity happy and it will make us happy. And happy Webgnomes are a very good thing!

 
JustGiving - Sponsor me now!

 

Thanks so much for your generosity, and to the next five years!

Your friendly neighbourhood Webgnome xx

PS: As usual, the person responsible for this charity drive is the Webgnome; Damian O’Hare is not involved with this in any way, form or shape. Have complaints? Then mail us.
