Welcome, welcome, welcome! *scattering showers of sparkling confetti*
It's happening. It's really happening. Legends of Western Cinema Week is officially here! Honestly, I've been thinking about this stuff for what seems like weeks and weeks now, and seriously y'all, this is gonna be GREAT. ;D
Again, be sure and visit my co-hosts blogs, Hamlette of Hamlette's Soliloquy and Olivia of Meanwhile, in Rivendell... for lots more posts, etc. And we're each hosting a giveaway so be sure to check theirs out too. They're both lovely friends and western-y kindred spirits and I can't wait to confabulate over everything we have in store for this week. :) :)
So! Now let's saddle up and do this thing!
The link up info and my giveaway are below, but first off, here are our tag questions for your copying pleasure:
~Legends of Western Cinema Week Tag~
1) Do you tolerate, like, or love westerns?
2) What do you enjoy about them and, more broadly, the west itself (e.g. the history, accompanying paraphernalia, etc)?
3) What's the first western you can remember watching?
4) Who are your favorite western stars, the ones whose presence in a western will make you pick it up off the shelf?
5) What's your favorite performance by an actress in a western?
6) What is your "go-to" western, the one you'll typically reach for?
7) Do your family/friends share your interest in westerns, or are you a lone ranger (pun completely intended)?
8) Pick one western to live inside for a week, and explain why you chose it.
9) Share one (or several!) of your favorite quotes from a western.
Due to a series of fortuitous and exciting circumstances, I've amassed a fun collection of prizes and I'm hoping there's something of interest for everyone.
The Important Details: Each of these are individual prizes (I created collages for the sake of brevity), but depending on how many entries we get, each winner is eligible to receive more than one prize. Also, due to region & shipping, Categories 1, 2 & 3 are US only, but 4 is open for international winners too. I can't make promises, but if you list your top favorite prizes in the comments section I'll do my best to match you up with one of them. Also, after the giveaway you'll have a week to respond by email with shipping info before I need to draw another winner.
#1: Western print
Our first prize is this 5x7 print of a John Wayne quote (i.e. "Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyways")

And the Final Important Stuff:
Don't forget to grab the tag questions up above, fill them out on your blog, then come back and leave a link to your post/s in our widget-y thing below. You can leave it on any of our blogs and it should show up on all three automatically (courtesy of the fancy link-y thing). Also, if you write more than one post (i.e. topical posts, movie reviews, etc) add each one as a separate entry so everyone can easily find everything you've posted. :)
That's it! Now let the fun begin! *figuratively dancing a jig (and I would throw my hat in the air if I was a cowboy and not a lady)* I can't wait to see what y'all come up with!
