Weird.......wonderful.......whatever........I guess its all part of who we all became once BBM got into our soul.

Yeah..... who could've guessed...?

It's still a wonder and a mystery to me...

One that I'm very grateful for.

  I haven´t been a person who consider myself being a hugh brokie. But slowly during couple of weeks something have happen to me. I have started to hear Brokeback mountain music. Just the first instrumental part and it comes just over me just like that . Sometimes when I listen to the radio I go OHHH thats sounds like .... BBM intro then its a new popsong or something. And in my head; I go, damn... they should play something much better.
that´s cool, Sophia!

Oh yes.......I doubt if there is any one of us, that doesn't get a shiver from that haunting guitar at the beginning and end of the movie. And it lingers long long after.....

This isn't a Brokieism I used myself, but I can't think of where else to post it. I was just reading a review of the movie about Amelia Earhart, which I haven't seen, and I ran across this:

Quote
As for the rumors about Earhart's lesbianism, they're addressed only in two oblique scenes, one where, sitting in a bar with Vidal, she admires a woman's legs, and another where she turns down Putnam's proposal with "I'm not the marrying kind." There's no need to throw in wild speculation about Earhart's imagined Sapphic grapplings, but if the subtext is going to remain that submerged, why let it peek out at all?

Good find, K!  i wonder - does it clearly imply gay when someone uses that phrase?  I didn't know that.
