The Bill Pullman School of Acting With Your Hair

You probably haven't noticed, but over the past couple of weeks, I've been going through all 775 blog posts and cleaning up the tags. Why? Because I had so many freaking tags that they were threatening to take over the planet. I had no idea what tags I had, I had no idea what I'd tagged and what I hadn't. The whole thing was incredibly half arsed. Not to mention the fact that I had 167 tags just for individual actors, most of which only had one or two posts attached to them.

When I started doing Movie Monday posts, I had this great idea that I would create tags for the lead actors in each movie, therefore allowing people to easily find all my Movie Monday posts for a particular actor. Except that I inevitably ended up tagging people who had really minor parts solely because I already had a tag for them, and forgetting to tag people who had major roles. Plus, it got completely out of hand with ensemble casts. I mean, where do you draw the line with something like The Avengers? Obviously, you list the actual Avengers, but then I had to tag Tom Hiddleston (because of reasons), which made me feel like I should also tag Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders. And then Blogger would start yelling at me because you can only have 200 characters worth of tags and ARGH.

In short, my tags were a ridiculous trainwreck. I had 12 posts with the tag "airport" and 14 with the tag "airports". I had about 10 things tagged as "cookies", 5 tagged as "biscuits" and several tagged as both. I had a tag for the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I had, bizarrely, a tag for "sarcasm", which had a whopping two posts under it. I had tags for magnets, mashed potato, fluff, old lady, linguistics, and 1993. I had, in what was quite possibly the most useless thing ever, a tag for food. FOOD. And of course, I'd used it in completely nonsensical ways.

ANYWAY.

It's still not perfect - I have to do a second round to clear up some stuff that got missed the first time around. But it's definitely a lot better. Plus, I've added new, important tags. Like The Bill Pullman School of Acting With Your Hair. I would explain it, but let's be honest: it's pretty self explanatory.

Just look at anything Bill Pullman's ever been in. His hair has magical powers and deserves at least 50% of what he earned for being in the movie. Other graduates of this school include Orlando Bloom:

Hugh Grant:

And Patrick Dempsey:

And now I have no idea how to end this post. Obviously, I've deleted my "vagueness" tag, so can't even use that. Oh well.

Who would you add to the Bill Pullman School of Acting With Your Hair? (This is by no means a sausage fest school. I just couldn't think of any ladies who fit the bill...)

  1. Hahaha, I've been going through mine on and off since I changed it to wordpress.org. It really is an ongoing process and the way I tagged some stuff in the beginning just makes you want to pull your hair out. What I should do is go through every post like you did and also pix the links (and some pictures) as the posts I imported from the old blog still include links to the now abandoned blog. But effort! Well, who am I talking to, oyu just went through over 700 posts...

  3. Yes, David Tennant. And Darren Criss. I love his hair... along with other things... which I think you've figured out since 1/2 of my tumblr is basically me oogggling over him.

  4. My entire blog is tagged under "sarcasm". ;)
    For my tags, I just choose which tags I want to show. I basically only tag things under 2 or 3 things (boring stuff like "book review" or "writing"). I'm pretty sure The Bill Pullman School of Acting With Your Hair is a very epic tag. Nice.

  5. Yeah, I need to fix links and pictures as well, but UGH EFFORT..........

  6. Yeah, I'm not quite sure why I didn't have 775 posts tagged as "Sarcasm". A massive oversight on Past!Kirsti's part.

  7. In Doctor Who, yes. But in most of his other roles, Tennant's hair is remarkably restrained and does very little of his acting. Which is interesting. Perhaps he attended the BPSoAwYH for a couple of semesters and then dropped out to attend regular acting school...

  8. Yeah, Darren Criss is definitely an alumnus.

  9. Effort indeed....

  10. So you're saying I need to watch more of David Tennant's stuff? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
