This is the place to put your questions or comments regarding the performance of Brokeback Mountain in Smileys.   :)

This is also the place to give us tips on how to make our performance even more brilliant!  ;D  8)

Great idea Meryl!

We did something similar in a far more modest and simple format on the dot-thread a while ago. We played only a few scenes, but it was fun (see my signature, I liked this smiley so much I kept it).

Your first post is awesome.  8)

Shall we have a list of scenes posted here?  Does the PT have scene lists stretching all the way back to the beginning?

Maybe people could even collaborate on scenes they are working on, maybe through PM.  The cool thing is it wouldn't have to be static, people could even go back and improve their posts of certain scenes if perfect smileys pop up.

Such a beautiful idea.  I may not be able to work on it much yet, but look forward to contributing.

Thanks for your words, Elle and Chrissi!   :-*

I love the idea of folks collaborating on their replies, Clarissa.  The main thing is to have posts that are meaningful, surprising and fun, so the more minds at work, the better!  8)

Regarding a list of scenes, I'm open to suggestions.  However, we probably all have the DVD and can check it for the details as we go along.  Perhaps it might help if each poster says at the end of their post what should happen next, so that the next person can pick up there and go as far as they wish before handing it over.  I'll add that to the guidelines now.  :)

Susie, I LOVE Aguirre's arrival.  How did you find all those perfect tiny images?

Susie, that is brilliant!  I adore the pair of deuces.  It took me a second to get the scrawny asses, but then I was ROFL! 8)  :laugh:

Paul, thanks for the pic of the rearview mirror.  Certainly a must-have!  ;D

Thanks to adia and Paul for continuing the story!  8)

Paul, I can see the "Bar" sign, but for some reason I can't see your lightning-zapped sheep.  Anyone else having this problem?  ???
