Now, I can handle my areas, but there’s dimensions and fucking angles I’m not expert at. You would be If you’d sheathe your prick long enough.

HBO’s ferocious and poetic Deadwood, a historical drama spanning two years in the history of a frontier town in the Dakotas, had the richest use of language American telvision has ever experienced. The beautiful words put in the mouths of the lowlifes, prostitutes, and lawmen by David Milch and his team of writers attracted much attention for the show’s liberal use of the words “fuck” and “cocksucker,” but the deserve just as much scrutiny for their stunning power.
"If I bleat when I speak it’s because I just got fuckin’ fleeced." That’s saloon owner Al Swearengen (played with fierce intelligence by Ian McShane) speaking coarse and quotable in damn near iambic pentameter. Swearengen, like all of the show’s components, has a basis in historical fact—this is one well researched beast you’re dealing with. There was a real Deadwood. Wild Bill Hickok was killed there. The Gem saloon really stood on that bloody, muddy ground.
But don’t get stuck on the realness. The Deadwood created by the writers and actors involved with the HBO masterpiece is wholly theirs, a wonderful fiction where pimps deliver soliloquies whilst getting head, and profanity takes on a poetic dimension Shakespeare would’ve approved of."
I’m calling on the widow and the little one in her care. And if I was you, or any cocksucker with you, I wouldn’t try to stop me.
Dogsitting this weekend and lookin for something to put on as background noise…found the first season of Deadwood. But…it’s impossible to not watch, so now I have to rewatch the whole thing. Frickin masterpiece.

DEADWOOD | Sold Under Sin
So…..all the devastatingly EPIC facial hair/disguises in this week’s One Piece gave me some serious Deadwood vibes.
And now I must go find some sort of Deadwood/One Piece crossover. This is the internet, so it’s bound to be out there, right? If not, I will make it so.
