Yeah, my family is much the same.....at first when i got "obsessed" they thought it would pass......(Mum's on a Brokeback Mountain kick)

When i tried to explain just what the movie was all about....(yeah, Mum, sounds good)

Then when I hung posters and stuff all over the wall in the bedroom we use as an office.....(Well, lets just humour her, it will pass)

But gradually, and as time went on, they realized that it wasn't going away......

And the first phone calls I got on the day that Heath died, was from my two sons saying...."Are you Ok mum?"

And now, when I watch the DVD ....again....my hubby always sits with me, for the final scene, and says "Thats really sad, isnt it"........

......and I know, that NOW he really does know how I feel.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

As you can see, my fixation is pretty well  known to my family

......and I know, that NOW he really does know how I feel.


I had a moment like that with my mom.

Mom had seen the film with me, and knew of my Brokeback fixation.  She couldn't understand the fact that I was so close to the people on the forums.  She couldn't conceive that people could get close over the 'net.

One day, I got a package from Europe.  A friend from the Netherlands sent me a copy of the DVD she made of the first BBM Backyard BBQ in Texas 2 years ago.  I popped it in, and just at that moment Mom walked in.  She sat down and watched the whole DVD with me.

It came time for the good byes, and she watched us all hugging and crying.....and I turned to mom, and she had tears running down her face.  She looked at me and said:

"I wasn't even there, and I'm crying.  I don't know how you all got through it.  I get it now."


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

That is so cool!

It is great Chucky, isn't it, when finally, those around us, know, that this is not just a one shot thing.

It is so much a part of who we are now, and will always be and maybe earlier in the journey it was nobody's business but ours but, there are now so many things we need to share with others about this, that its refreshing to be able to talk about it to them, and know that they do understand...

I will second that. I would LOVE for just one person close to me to get it.Not that anyone knocks it.In fact most I have introduced, think it's a pretty good movie.Not one however has developed the fixation I have. Well, one has but I am a very long way away from him.
It would give me such pleasure to have someone in flesh and blood who I could chatter away with about BBM.
My family humour me and I don't talk to friends about it anymore as they just glaze over.
I have had 2 brief respites ,when I could casually drop it into a conversation, one being the terrible events of Jan, and the other when TDK came out.

I love this story, Chuck!  Thank you for sharing it with us.  :-*
