I'm curious about the stories behind some of these list items.  Stromboli?  Do tell!

Stromboli is one of our Chuckie's specialities.  Yum.

"Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac

I didn't even know this song was Brokieish, yet I've been listening to it a lot over the past few years -- a YouTube version featuring an older Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham. I don't know why this thing grabbed hold of me in the first place, but maybe it sensed my Brokie credentials.

LOL, well Landslide is one of those songs that I've posted (probably more than once) in the threads around here that ask us to share songs that remind us of Jack and Ennis.  That song actually makes me weepy now... all due to BBM.  It's really a nice song.

* Broome Street

* Campbell Scott (he read the story on audiobook)



Scott Campbell is the name of the guy who did many of Heath's tats. How's that for funny?

I just saw Brothers and there were many jarring things that reminded me of Brokeback Mountain. The main character has two little girls. At one point, Jake even says, "He's the spitting image"!!!
May 2019 be better for us all.

I went and saw Julie & Julia tonight (which did not remind me of BBM).  But in the lobby there was a poster for a movie starring Abby Cornish and Ben Whishaw, two people I'm sure I still would never have heard of if they hadn't each been in a film with Heath.

The Squid and the Whale and Thank You for Smoking are two movies that remind me of Brokeback Mountain. "Squid" is the first non-BBM movie I went to after seeing BBM in theaters. "Smoking" is the first non-BBM movie I enjoyed after seeing BBM.

So I guess I could probably extend a bit of honorary Brokie status to Aaron Eckhart, who starred in "Smoking" and in TDK. I don't think I can grant it to anybody in "Squid," though.

Yep. Wasn't that the strangest thing? For months and month I didn't even want to see any other movie. When I tried nonetheless, I didn't like them, gave up pretty soon and got back online, lol.

I still haven't seen any other movie since Brokeback.

I guess I've met my One True Movie.  ;D
