Unabashed Randomness


According to Peggy Post, an expert in manners, the tradition of pulling off your hat indoors started in the Old West. Cowboys would pull off their hats to prove that they were not hiding a weapon under them.

A short verse from the bawdy old folk tune, 'Rye Whiskey' : If the ocean were whiskey and I were a duck, I'd dive to the bottom and drink it all up. But the ocean's just water and I ain't no duck so I'll stay on dry land and just fuck...




Gus McCrae, from Lonesome Dove: A man who wouldn't cheat for a poke don't want one bad enough.

A country music title that could very well be about Sanjaya Malakar: 'I Would Rather Hear A Fat Girl Fart Than A Pretty Boy Sing.'



From Copenhagen Angel, by Chris LeDoux: She's got a plug in both her cheeks, She's got Copenhagen in her lips, She's got a roll your own between her teeth, and I've never even seen her spit.

I love your pinup blog, You've found a unique niche.

The "salute" with your right hand also began with the old British Navy, to ensure sailors weren't hiding daggers in their hand (to stab captains behind the back with).

Also, the shaking of hands is from when medieval knights passed by each other, and showed that they weren't armed.

Funny how those things evolve.

My Lonesome Dove favorite : Jake Spoon said ''Well, hell, boys. I'd damn sight rather be hung by my friends than by a bunch o' damn strangers. Newt... Well, adios, boys. Hope you won't hold it against me. Never meant no harm''.

So, have you watched the Deadwood series of shows on HBO? The Calamity Jane character cracks me up!

tk: I am all about unique niches.

gerald: I had always thought that the hand shake thing besides symbolizing an empty hand also was due to no toilet paper. Shake with the right wipe with the left.

phred: I have fashioned a good part of my life after the teachings of Augustus McCrae. There are far to many quotes here to list them all.

I will watch anything that has robert duvall in it..I just watched the video of broken trail...almost as good as lonesome dove..which was the best...
for years after watching lonesome dove I would tell people to go poke themselves..or poke you..

:P fuzzbox said...

granny: Broken Trail was purty darn good. But nothing will stack up to Lonesome Dove in my book. It is the western that I measure all westerns by.
