    I wonder if that will still count as "Media." :rommie:

    Even when searching for 'theatre curtains' it didn't occur to me that I was framing part of a film :rommie: Yeah, it probably cunts as media so I'm trying to put together a different thing: dead bandits.

    Although... they probably overpriced the popcorn and the softdrinks in theatres even back then, legendarily so :p

    ^^ Beat me to it. Back to the old drawing board. :rommie:

    I don't know. Maybe anything over a hundred years old should count as History instead of Media. :D

    We should get a ruling from the contest-runner.

    Hmmm, it is considered a milestone in film making and can be downloaded from The Library of Congress linky [​IMG]

    Sorry, but you'll have to resize it. Entries can't be larger than 150x150 pixels.
    That aside, nice one! :techman:

    @trekkiedane: Sorry, but that's obviously Media and no actual Wild West legend. Better go with the one-armed bandit.

    oops, sorry. I only saw to it that it's 120 px wide and didn't pay attention to the height

    Yeah it is, isn't it just the very definition of it :rommie:

    ETA:

    Better play safe then: Again Lucky Luke comes to the rescue, Phantly Roy Bean, Jr., aka. Judge Roy Bean -or- The Law West of Pecos:

    Apparently he used to be quite the ladies' man inbetween running away from various degrees of trouble :rommie:

    here

    I was only able to find very few good images of him and ended up doing the avatar completely from this image, in case anyone's interested.

    There's a fairly good pic in one of the Lucky Luke comic books (vol 31, at the end of the book)
    And on this German site:http://rooschristoph.blogspot.de/2012/06/roy-bean.html
    And you'll perhaps find a few new ones by googling in German: http://www.google.de/search?q=Roy+b...56,d.bGE&fp=675236a9740bdaef&biw=1280&bih=879


    What about Rick? Doesn't he participate? There are quite a few celebs we didn't cover yet: Pocahontas (though being pacifist and from the East coast she might not count), Big Nose Kate, Billie the Kid, Butch Cassidy & Sundance Kid, Black Bart the rhyming robber, the Dalton Gang, Buckshot rogers, Johnny Ringo etc.
    Then there was that woman who lived as a trapper and they found out her gender only when she had died - I can't recall her name.
    And how about the real and fake Native Americans? Grey Owl (fake), Tecumseh (genuine), Seattle (prophetic) etc?
    And since we have Sitting Bull, how about Custer? Davy Crockett? Daniel Boone?

    Nice list. Locutus of Bored did a Billy the Kid one, though. Not saying I won't allow another one, but with so many great options left, why would anyone'd risk splitting the vote?!

    And, no, Pocahontas doesn't count.

    You're not suggesting a link between me and BrĂ¼derle, I hope.

    No, it's because she wasn't a gunslinger and she doesn't have her own Lucky Luke comic. :p
