Congratulations on your anniversary, Paul!


I just read this whole thread, and am feeling very grateful for all of you.   :-*

Today is my seventh anniversary.  I clearly recall seeing the 4pm matinee on a nasty, rainy cold Friday.  So glad I always carry a handkerchief.  I remember talking my best friend's ear off that night, then dragging her to see it with me the next day.  Then buying the short story, the soundtrack (I used to dislike country music), the screenplay.  I discovered the IMDb message board in January and CaseyCornelius' brilliant threads, and I was hooked.  I even printed out some of them early threads at the time.  Then joining BetterMost in April 2006.

Even though I dragged most of my friends to see it with me, I didn't encounter another Brokie until I hosted the Boston party in September 2006. When I look at the group photo, I'm amazed that I am still in touch with 18 out of 20 people who attended.  Since then, I have had the good fortune to meet many more wonderful friends. I even met Jake on the 7th anniversary last weekend!

Aww. Yes, I remember that unquenchable urge to talk about our movie. And to see it again and again ... And the night-sessions we pulled, on the boards, in chat or watching the movie alone on DVD. Getting up on 5AM on a Sunday to chat with friends overseas. Crazy, but warm and happy times.

Yes, it's the people that matter. The connections we made, the friendships we formed. I too am very thankful for the people I've met through this, and for the experiences I've made.
And every cent I've spent on my Brokie-trips is money well spent! :) There's nothing like meeting with fellow Brokies, who have long become friends, and a part of my life.

Couldn't agree more, Chrissi!

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!

I received two tickets to the movie plus dinner at Boulder's Dushanbee Teahouse from my daughter for Christmas in 2005. She was excited about seeing it because of all the publicity about it being a "crossover" film for mainstream audiences. I only agreed to go with her because of it being her Christmas present...originally I was opposed to them making a movie of my beloved New Yorker story, especially starring those two teen heartthrobs Jake and Heath. I had only seen Jake in Bubble Boy and October Sky and I had just seen Heath in Lords of Dogtown.

May 2019 be better for us all.
