HEY! TAG YOUR PO…………no wait you just did.
Huh. Whaddya know. Not at all as helpful as presumed.
Ah yes, the very effective tactique of sensory habituation - a forced accustomization towards a stimuli of certain quality, for example a particular attractive British man, often acquired through extensive repetition of visual exposure. Very effective - though has its risks, like accidental sensory overdosage and the physical and mental consequenses involved. Be careful.
If tissues, ice cream and chocolate have failed you, I’d recommend watching the films while sitting in a bucket of ice, chewing on tablecloths, loudly singing your national anthem and repeatedly whacking your own head with a frozen salmon. Or, a herring - just a matter of taste, really.
None of this will of course render the films themselves any more harmless, but should be disturbing enough to provide sufficient distraction to make the viewing experience as uncomfortable as possible in order to prevent you from noticing such hazardous details as Tom’s finger movements and humming while he kisses.
SWH has been back for about a week or so, so let’s relaunch the Follower of the Week system as well! My stats tell me that the FotW this time is kabal42!
Congrats, Kabs, woooo! I see you’ve been the FotW four times now, awesome! Four wins means SWH is promoting your blog sometime in the near future because you roooooock! (Love ya, dude, really.)
Tom Hiddleston + Playing the guitar
Take that thing away from him before he pokes someone’s eye out
The devastation has undeniably been severe and far-spread. According to rumours, Tom is very sorry.
This unfortunate chain of events - including dangerous choice of clothing, and a series of finger movements on an instrument unsuitable for attractive men, and vocal usage of very dubious quality - has shocked and damaged many, and is still causing great pain and suffering, and raising evergrowing fear for what lies ahead in the inevitable dawning of I Saw The Light.
All victims are adviced to seek immediate help from such crisis centers as pizzerias, bakeries and shoe stores. Good luck.
Hello there! Awwngh, aren’t you a sweetheart, Lady! Missed you too!
And thank you very much - just hoping I don’t have to be that busy too often…!

don’t hit yourself too hard tho’
There is no such thing.

Circus acrobat!!! are you kidding me, that is sooooo cool. I too would spend little time on tumblr if I had anything better to do, but I don’t *sigh*. Best of luck with such a great life choice :)
I shit you not. That’s what I do. Or try to do. But thank you veryvery much!!

Omg, I have apparently missed this… Now I’m scared to look/listen.
Ignorance is bliss, Kabs, ignorance is bliss…
No worries, Binkie, it’s very normal and more than understandable.
Consider this a very adequate preparation exercise for I Saw The Light. This is an excellent opportunity for you to work on your breathing techniques, meditation skills, focus redirection……
….and how fast can you possibly find the nearest blunt object to hit yourself in the head with.
I am so sorry for not updating the blog lately!
I’ve been completely and unforgivingly preoccupied by a performance project larger than both my life and my bank account combined, and drowning in shenanigans that no one in their right mind would call work but for which I seem to get paid for anyway.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that a hobby of mine is getting out of hands and turning into a career, for which I’m undeniably happy but terribly sorry since it has kept me unreasonably busy lately. I’ve been hoping to get some spare time to check up on you guys, and that time has finally come now that I’ve reached a sort of a slow phase in between projects. Things should calm down for a couple of months now - though that assumption has proven to be nothing but a reassuring misconception for the past year or so, so we’ll see.
(Should you ever wonder where the hell I am and what’s keeping me so busy, you can check my personal blog, Sophistication Gone Buckwild - which unfortunately does suffer of my hurries as well sometimes, but is more likely to be updated in the middle of all the fuss and the chaos.)
To sum up: I am so so so sorry for disappearing and not explaining any sooner.
What comes to this Hiddles soundalike, I am very much aware of his existence and the devastation he’s spreading. I am unsure whether his intentions are friendly or malicious, but he does offer a perfect opportunity to improve your Hiddles tolerance and the skills related in relatively safe circumstances. I’d suggest sticking nails into your ears and banging your head against the nearest wall to redirect your focus.
…….or whatever the heck you used to call it before you lost it ages ago.
