Ooooo, this brings back happy old memories about the deep significance of the number 3.... remember that great old topic?

Believe it or not, that thread still is there on the BBM Board: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388795/board/flat/40229458

I took the liberty of compiling the complete question and answer session that we had with Pierre Tremblay. This includes all of the follow-up questions and answers, as well.

I still need to send him a "thank you" letter on behalf of the board, but had little response to the thread that I made several days ago. So I need some ideas about that. If you have any... please let me know... because we really, really, really need to send him something. It was so nice of him to do this for us.

Anyways, here is the complete text, for your reading pleasure --



somehow, i am only now finding this, fascinating read nonetheless - thank you!

I just wanted to say thanks again for doing this interview in the first place and to those of you who helped me find the proper channels to follow to get permission from Pierre to use the interview on FindingBrokeback.com. It is now up there along with those of Tom Benz, the production manager; Alfie Creighton, who was in charge of the vehicles; and Darryl Solly, the location manager.

You did a really wonderful job with this and I really loved the way you not only asked for ideas for questions from everyone but then voted on which ones would be used. You came up with an incredible interview doing it that way.

Lauren

Thanks, Lauren, for letting us know it's up over at findingbrokeback.com.  There's now a Tremblay trinity: imdb, BetterMost and findingbrokeback.  8)

Big thanks go to TheStudDuck! who organized the interview and corresponded with the Tremblays when we were posting on the Pierre Tremblay message board.  David, you contributed a big chunk of Tremblayan history.  A solemn YEEHAW to you!  :-*

The interview was featured on The Daily Sheet on the Dave Cullen board today.  :D

This comment from a viewer of the interview on FB was forwarded to me a little while ago. I wanted to share it with you. You really should go to FB and see your interview. There have been some photos added and it looks great!

          "That was a really good interview, both the questions and the answers.  Keep up the good work!"


(Just in case you're wondering, this is part of the response from FB: "Thanks for the kind words.  We enjoyed it too, but can accept no credit whatsoever for it.")

Lauren, I did read the interview over at FB today and thought it looked very spiffy the way they printed it up, and the pictures added quite a bit of interest.  Nicely done!  8)

It's funny you mention that, Elle.  I just went and saw that movie today (not knowing a thing about Pierre being involved, as I haven't been checking in on IMDb lately).  And there, in the very beginning of the credits, was his name.  I went "Woohoo, Pierre!"  The people around me looked at me strangely.  Oh, well.

Good movie, by the way.  Not great - flawed - but good.  Ultimately I think it's about how journalism has come to mean telling the people what (it's thought) they want to hear, instead of telling them the truth.  Good stuff.  And definitely the first movie I've truly enjoyed Josh Hartnett in.  I finally saw the light in his eyes - many times.

No more beans!

Not sure if this is the right place to post this.
But I saw this pic and wanted to share it!
