How Chez Tremblay began -

By Ellemeno

When the trolls got too disruptive on the Brokeback Mountain message board at IMDb (Internet Movie Database), a clever Brokie by the name of Brandon had the idea for us to move over to another BBM-related message board on IMDb, the board for BBM first assistant director Pierre Tremblay.  Our goal was to keep this board secret from trolls, but to have it wide-open welcoming to all BBM-lovers.  Every time we found a BBM-lover who stuck around a while and was friendly, they were invited over to the Pierre Tremblay board. 

After a few weeks, the trolls did find us, posting very negative messages, and deleting our precious threads.  It became very clear that we needed a new home.

Celeste (YaadPyar) was very resourceful and contacted Phillip here at BetterMost.  Phillip knew all about what was going on over at IMDb and welcomed us as a group.  Understanding what we had been through, he started a little forum for us here at BetterMost, where we could find some peace, and become part of the warm, welcoming BetterMost community.  Beginning on March 30th, 2006, the membership of BetterMost doubled, as fifty or so Tremblayans joined.  And that's how the Chez Tremblay forum was born here.

What united the original Tremblayans was a deep love for BBM, and a desire to discuss it and its effect on our lives to our hearts' content, in an atmosphere of safety and respect.  Does this describe you?  Then welcome to being a Tremblayan.

Note from Meryl:  For a more detailed account, go here to read the thread that gave rise to Ellemeno's fine summing up.

And Tremblayans: don't forget to branch out + have fun on other threads. (We had a great limerick thread on the original CT — I started one on the Fanfiction&Poetry thread here a few weeks ago, and I'm still all by myself!)

Help!  :(

I don't know, who I can post this message!

Well.........In the reunion scene, Ennis run and said:"Jack fucking Twist.....!" Yes?

But what said Jack? I hear not wat the screenplay said!

En Francais now!

Pourrez-vous m'aider, j'entends quelque chose de tout different de ce que dit Jack, mais j'ai encore trouvé personne qui entends ca aussi si une seule jusqu'a présent!

Je poste le lien pour écouter avec le média player!

Please listen the sound here!

Hi liberty!

The answer is "Son of a bitch!"  But if you want to know what that is in French, you'll have to ask Sheriff Roland or belbbmfan.  ;D

"Son of a bitch" est une expression qui, littéralement se traduit pour dire 'fils d'une chienne'. Ici au Canada, nos expressions sont liées davantage à la religion (avec des expressions tels que 'tabarnak' et 'caulice') tandisque la population anglaise en Amérique du Nord à plutôt des expression reliées au sex - tel que 'fuckin bitch' ou simplement 'fuck'. On partage aussi d'autres expressions tel que 'merde/shit' et 'maudit/damn', mais la différence religion / sex entre français et anglais est quand même de valeur à souligner.

Yes! But I hear "it's soooo magic...." ??? :( :-\

Salut Roland!

Je sais que dans le screenplay et la nouvelle c'est "son of the bitch" et c'est clair que pour des rudes cowboys comme ils sont que Jack ne peut que dire ca, mais il est tellement content de retrouver enfin son Ennis, et en plus avec un acceuil comme ca, il en a meme jamais rêvé je pense, tout ce qui lui reste a dire serait "it's so magic" en tous cas moi j'entends pas de b, ni de i, ni de tch, mais bien un m, un è (pour mègic), et un ik a la fin, faudrait trouver quelqu'un qui nous le mets au ralentit, comme le "Fuck me" de Jack dans la fnit.

Dear Rolland, please can you translate this in English? Thank you!

Tu sais, j'naime vraiment pas traduire ... ça prend une différente (et plus profonde) connaissace des deux langues, mais pour toi, pour cette fois (seulement), je vais le tenter ... (Je n'ai pas compris ce que tu voulais dire par "et la nouvelle" alors je n'ai pas tenter de reprendre le début)

liberty said: ... Jack is so happy to finally meet up with his Ennis, plus with the welcome he received, a welcome he'd never even imagined in his wildest dreams or thoughts, he'd conceivably say something like 'it's so magic'. Anyways, I  for one, don't hear the 'b' nor the 'i', nor the 'tch', but rather (I hear) an 'm' and a 'e' as in the word 'let', and I also hear an 'ik' at the end. It would be nice if we could find someone who can 'slow-motion' the audio like they did for the 'fuck me' that Jack says in the FNIT.

Here's a special welcome to the New Wave from IMDb who've been joining up this week, battered but not bowed from their dealings with the seemingly tireless trolls over there.  Howdy, Friends!  Warm yourself by the fire.  This calls for a group hug:

Nikita, I think Jack was referring to IMDB.  (The forum over there can be troll-infested, and the automated monitoring system can delete posts & threads comparatively frequently.)
