The New Yorker Magazine

Just a note to remind everyone that it was on October 13, 1997
NINE YEARS AGO
that Annie Proulx saw the publication of
Brokeback Mountain
in this edition of The New Yorker Magazine.

since then it has appeared in their magazine as
a movie review,
a spoken word recording by Suzy Amis
and grist for their cartoons

What if I dont want to be Jack or Ennis.


Thank You Annie and The  New Yorker
for getting Brokeback off to a start.

OK - It's about ta happen again. Some months ago "Anything Goes" moved up ta 4th place as the (4th) busiest forum in all a BetterMost (when it surpassed the "Open Forum"). This was shortlived, as the even more busy "Fanfiction" forum leapfrogged ahead a both, ta push "Anything Goes" back in 5th.

Well, a couple a 3 months later & here we are again - on the cusp a passin yet another forum (the "ABC/123 game" forum) ta return ta 4th place -----> just a few moments ago, we were just a mere 10 posts behind 'em. Anke, Milli, Dottie & Kerry - let's get the champagne, German bear, sausages, cherry cake and fireworks ready fer another celebration - should be happ'nin sometime this evenin, I should think!
