Anything broken seems Brokieish. Especially if you can't fix it and gotta stand it.

Same here. I'm debatting going to work today (on foot, driving doesn't look very appealing at the moment) or just working from home. I've never seen this much snow. I wish it'd just stuck on hour...

You bet, Katherine! As Bob Dylan said, "Everything is Brokenback!" And he is definitely Brokeish, in fact, he wrote (or wrote down, enniway) the words to "He Was a Friend of Mine." I agree also with snow being Brokeish.

But, Ellemeno, I do not know who Levi Johnston is, so I can't say one way or the other if I agree with you about him being Brokeish. But, Sarah Palin? I don't see how she is Brokeish. She does remind me just a bit of Lureen, I guess. Sorry Lureen.

for me, all the brokie reference different tv-shows, movies makes is to me somehow brokieish. A couple of weeks ago I saw an episode of a american teenage series (donīt recall the name) and suddenly the to boys in the tv-series were camping, sitting by the fire and one of the guys just said it wanna do a brokeback? And of course the didnīt really do it, but its fun that other tv-shows and movies pic it up.

When I was home visiting my parents for the whole week of Christmas... I realized that the news radio station that my Dad listens to in the car (mostly for weather and traffic updates) is Brokieish.  The radio station is called WBBM 780.

LOL, everytime the newscasters would say the name of the radio station I'd get a little jolt.


Also, another funny Brokie thing happened over the holiday break.  My Mom and I were in line at the store called Home Goods.. and near the checkout lanes they had a very small, random selection of DVDs on display. There were two copies of BBM right in front of the group.  It was somehow surprising to see it sitting there.

Having just finished watching this year's Rose Parade, I realize that many aspects of that parade are Brokieish (and also Lonesome Dove-ish)... lots of references to many different western things and lots of horse info that relates to both BBM and LD.

Front-Ranger, Sarah Palin is Brokieish because of all the time and energy that was spent discussing her here.  Levi Johnston is her son in law.

I'm beginning to think that 'Brokieish' and 'Brokeish' aren't just different variations on one word, but rather two different words.  The first refers to anything Brokie-related, the second anything related to Brokeback Mountain itself.

Two cool Brokeback things happened to me today:

1) Did a crossword puzzle where one of the answers was "rodeo"

2) Watched a CSI episode with the LD Newsome actor in it playing a Fire Chief! (Sit down you old sonofabith!)

I love being reminded of BBM when I am not expecting it!

Today I had a moment of Brokie guilt... I was driving by a big movie complex and noticed that both Brothers and Imaginarium were listed on the sign as showing there.  I haven't seen either yet... but of course seeing the sign made me think Brokieish thoughts.

I just can't motivate myself to go see those movies alone... especially Imaginarium.   :-\
