You think he still drives it?
Love this chart of wonderful words.
Oh this is wicked cool!
…when everything sucks pond scum and I feel as if the world is trying to seriously piss me off!

If he ever gets tired of the acting gig, he’d make a fortune as a model.
While none of this year’s movies are among the most expensive, many that made the list cost more than $200 million.
Now this will boggle the mind. And quite a few of them made back way over the amount spent. Worth it?

Tom Hiddleston has been working on the nasal twang that was the distinctive trademark of country music legend Hank Williams, whom the star will portray in what he called ‘the opportunity of a lifetime’.
I wrote, fleetingly, last week that Hiddleston — famous for playing the scheming and vengeful Loki in three Marvel Comic movies as well as his brilliant portrait of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus in Josie Rourke’s scorching production at the Donmar — will tackle the part of Williams in a new film.
Yesterday, he spoke exclusively to me about the hillbilly with the ‘crooked smile and a wary eye’ he’ll play in I Saw The Light.
Starring role: Tom Hiddleston, who tweeted this picture of himself on set of I Saw The Light, is to play music legend Hank Williams in the new film
The movie will begin shooting in October in Louisiana, although Hiddleston has already started learning how to sing Williams’s doleful ballads with the help of Country & Western star Rodney Crowell. Tom will have to replicate those bluesy vocals and play the guitar.
Hiddleston told me I Saw The Light will chart the singer’s life from his turbulent first marriage to Audrey Mae Sheppard in 1944, through his early radio career to his auspicious debut, in 1949, at the home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
Opportunity: Hiddleston, famous for playing Loki in three Marvel Comic movies, said the film was about ‘the man behind the myth and the power of his music’
Numbers such as Hey, Good Lookin’, Jambalaya (On The Bayou), Your Cheatin’ Heart and Take These Chains From My Heart.
‘The film is about the man behind the myth, the power of his music, the sheer voltage of his talent and charisma, and his formidable demons,’ Hiddleston continued.
‘He worked hard, played hard, lived hard — there were women, there was whiskey — but when he sang about being in the doghouse in Move It On Over, or about his heartbreak in I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, it came from an honest place.’
Marc Abraham’s screenplay ‘pulls no punches’, the actor added, and explores Williams’s ‘shattering, self-abusive relationship with alcohol and later prescription drugs’.
The singer, who suffered debilitating back pain from a congenital disorder of the spine, died of a heart attack on New Year’s Day in 1953.
Abraham, who will also direct, saw Hiddleston in Coriolanus and knew he had his man, even though the RADA-trained British thespian may seem an unlikely fit for the farm boy from Mount Olive, Alabama.
But Abraham said Tom has the rare ability to ‘transform himself’.
Hiddleston adds: ‘Hank’s life has a tragic arc, but in simple truth, he was a genius: a star that burned twice as bright and lived half as long. It’s a huge role for me and a huge responsibility. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.’
He means it too.
Tom told me: ‘I’ve already started singing and playing every day’.
Rodney Crowell, the Grammy-award winning country music legend, is helping.
‘He came down to visit me over the Easter weekend in Toronto where I was filming Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Pea” and we jammed for a day or so. It was so exciting. We had some coffee and did some talking and then we just started playing.
'It was spine-tingling just to spend a day playing some of Hank's greatest hits like Hey Good Lookin’ and Long Gone Lonesome Blues with such a gifted musician. He's already expanded my vocal range and given me a few pointers about adapting my own tone to sound like Hank. Rodney has furnished me with his beautiful J45 Gibson to practice with. And he'll be on hand throughout the shoot,’ Tom added.
He explained that Williams played rhythm guitar in 1-4-5 chord progressions that are heavily influenced by the blues greats: Mississippi John Hurt and R. L. Burnside and by country legends like Roy Acuff.
‘But his poetry, his lyrics, ache with raw vulnerability and emotion. And he sang them with all his heart.
They didn’t call him ‘The Hillbilly Shakespeare’ for nothing. How Hank sang and how Hank played – that’s the work I have to do’.
Except that picture was taken inside the Donmar Warehouse — not the set of I Saw the Light (which doesn’t start filming until October). But it’s a damn good article and I think Mr. Hiddleston is going to be amazing.
Do you do your own stunts?
Kicking and screaming, huh? You go, baby! You go!

So relaxed and able to walk about unmolested. He must have been in heaven.
How do YOU feel about the bad boy? Hmm? Tell me.
