I still miss that fancy queer case Ennis had.  ;D

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!

We all are badly in need of a laugh.

(And because today is my 15th Anniversary, and I figured I'd celebrate with Kyle, Jim O'Neal, and the whole Malaysian Brokeback gang.  :laugh: )

It's been almost a year since we visited Kyle, Jim O'Neal, and all our Malaysian Brokie friends. Pull up a log, stick a boot in the fire, and have a high time.  ;D

They are as funny today as they were 15 years ago.

Finding the mondegreen "Knockin' on Kevin's Door" this morning reminded me of this thread.  :)

I wonder where Gary, Kyle, and Jim O'Neal are today?  ;D

Okay, I've lived long enough to know that ANYTHING can happen.  So although I have no memory of ingesting ANY hallucinogenic or psychotropic substances prior to kicking back and watching my newly-obtained bootleg copy of BBM over the ironing tonight, I have to concede that perhaps it happened.

See I decided to turn the volume waaay down (son in bed asleep didn't really need to be awoken by some hot n heavy 2nd tent scene action) and switch on the subtitles.  Also to see if my copy shed any further light on the c'mere, c'mere / s'alright x 3 debates.  Forgetting, of course, that my copy (which was given to me by a Qld Police Officer no less!  ;D) came from the shores of Malaysia, where its granted they may have some difficulty in their grasp of the English language, not to mention dodgy hearing.

I'm glad I have seen Brokeback and know it by heart, cause otherwise I fear these subtitles may have lead me a tad astray! Check it out:

The lines (so far - haven't even watched the whole film yet) range from the bad:

LINE: Your folks just stop at Ennis? / Del Mar
SUBTITLE: Folks are here? / Balmore

LINE: You pair deuces lookin for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in here pronto..
SUBTITLE: You pay look for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in your pronto

LINE: Thought I'd asphyxiate from the smell
SUBTITLE: Thought I've to fix it from the smear

LINE: ..unless you wanna sit around tyin knots all day..
SUBTITLE: I'll get this one and see around town, that's all

To the WAAAY off-topic and incorrect:

LINE: Beats workin for my old man..
SUBTITLE: he used to work for my old man

LINE: So why didn't we get the powdered milk and the spuds?
SUBTITLE: Yes, why don't we get a pail of milk on the spot?

LINE: What if Aguirre finds out, hunh?
SUBTITLE: What if Gary finds out, huh?  (gary??)  ???

LINE: Spend half the night checkin for damn coyotes..
SUBTITLE: Spent happy nite and checking for damn Kyle  (kyle?!?!!?)  ??? ???

LINE: I am pretty good with a can opener though..
SUBTITLE: I'm am pretty good with a canoe though  (uuhhh.. good)  :-\


To the somewhat prophetic:

LINE: Tomorrow mornin we'll truck you up to the jump off
SUBTITLE: My man will check you out at the jump off  (i'll bet he will... binoculars an all)

LINE: Only thing, don't ever order soup
SUBTITLE: Only thing.. your man will order soup   :-*

LINE: I'm commutin 4 hours a day
SUBTITLE: I can meet you for hours a day  (we wish..  we also wish for it to be filmed..)

LINE: Aguirre's got no right makin me do this.
SUBTITLE: Gay's not rite to make me do this


I'm going to attempt to watch some more tomorrow.. I can't believe I didn't make it to the first reunion kiss!!
