We don know whether she liked the ladies, but we do know she liked the men in particular, the love of her life, Wild Bill Hickok, to whom she claimed to have been married, and with whom she claimed to have had a daughter, who was given up for adoption. This is widely disputed, particularly by those who want to keep Hickok image as squeaky clean as possible; I tend to believe the claim, if only because it was one thing she stuck to and didn embellish. It seems to me a singular piece of truth, if one proclaims the fact of a relationship and offspring in the face of displeasing the very person on Earth (Hickok, in her case) you most love.
Hisses, yowls, and other unpleasant cat soundsIt’s fairly easy for us to figure out the meanings of most of the less than pleasant sounds our feline friends make. Cats hiss when surprised, annoyed, afraid, or as a way of saying “back off.” Yowls can also be used as a warning or threat, but cats will also sometimes yowl if they want attention or are confused. When a cat makes a long, loud howl or scream, it means he’s scared or in pain (my old cat used to make an ear splitting banshee shriek sound when in the car on the way to the vet).
Raylan’s return to Kentucky brought him face to face with a woman from his childhood, Ava Crowder (Joelle Carter). Raylan goes looking for his old friend, Boyd Crowder, who has taken up exploding black churches in the name of white supremacy, and finds himself on Ava’s front porch. Ava is more than glad to set eyes on Raylan once again.
Perhaps you have aspirations of becoming the next Konrad Kujau. He was the king of fake diaries, hand writing 62 volumes of Hitler’s reign, from who else than Hitler himself! Sure, besides the length of the script it was an obvious hack job, this still didn’t prevent him from selling the publishing rights to the nearest gullible media mogul for a cool four million. And even now it has been proved a hoax there’s still something really quite funny about imagining Hitler write something like, “Because of the new pills I have violent flatulence, and says Eva bad breath.”.
Critiques run the gamut from Martin Thomas’ thoughtful commentary to Tony Guerrero’s guttural pronouncements that “It sucked!” (Enraged at the ridiculousness of Spice World, Guerrero took a photo of Scary Spice and pantomimed wiping himself with it.) It is an approach that engenders a love them or hate them reaction among viewers. Those enamored of Pauline Kael hell, those enamored of Siskel Ebert might clench their teeth at the irreverence and the occasional fumbling. But for those hungry for bottom line wrapups and the kind of reviews they don’t need a dictionary to understand, The Reel Deal can be a welcome change.
