THE BROKEBACK READING PROJECT - Sunday 12/05/10 at 1:00pm ET
« on: March 09, 2007, 11:46:35 pm »
If you missed Rodney's reading in Bay City, here's your chance to hear what you missed!  :D

Tune into BBM Radio this Wednesday 03/14 at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT (01:00 UTC/GMT Thur) and Thursday 03/15 at 2:00pm ET/11:00am PT (18:00 UTC/GMT) as we present:


THE BROKEBACK READING PROJECT


The epic short story by Annie Proulx

as read by Musician/Actor

RODNEY GILES



WHAT IS
BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN?


Annie Proulx, Pulitzer Prize winning author
of The Shipping News, has written some of
the most original and brilliant short stories
in contemporary literature, and for many,
“Brokeback Mountain” is her masterpiece.
It tells the tale of Ennis del Mar and Jack
Twist, two under-educated ranch hands that
come together while working as sheep
herder and camp tender one summer on a
range above the tree line on Wyoming’s
Brokeback Mountain. At first they share
only a comradeship, but it soon deepens into
a relationship that neither man comprehends.
At the end of their idyllic time on the
mountain, the two men part ways, marry and            
have children because that’s what is
expected of them by the society in which
they live. But over the course of many years
and frequent separations the relationship
between the two men becomes the most
important thing in their lives, and they do
anything they can to preserve it.
“Brokeback Mountain” was originally
published in “The New Yorker” magazine in
October 1997 and eventually published as
the final story in an anthology of Wyoming
stories by Ms. Proulx entitled Close Range.
In gorgeous and haunting prose, Annie
Proulx depicts the difficult, dangerous affair
between two young ranch hands that
survives everything but the world’s violent
intolerance.
Now a brilliant film by Ang Lee,
“Brokeback Mountain” has had profound
effect on the lives of countless people
around the world. The Oscar®-nominated
performances of Heath Ledger and Jake
Gyllenhaal have vividly brought to life the
heartbreaking tale of Ennis and Jack and
how their love for each other affected all
those with whom they shared their lives.

WHAT IS
THE BROKEBACK READING PROJECT?

For many people, “Brokeback Mountain” is
the name of the brilliantly poignant Ang Lee
film. These people never read or never had
access to the original short story. For these
“film-only” people, the short story offers
significant enough differences to exist sideby-
side with the film, offering the reader the
no-nonsense prose style of author Annie
Proulx, as well as vividly descriptive
imagery of the Wyoming mountain country.
Add to that the aural experience of actually
listening to Annie Proulx’s epic short story
read by a skilled interpreter, and “Brokeback
Mountain” takes on new and added
dimensions unknown to “film-only” people.
It’s very possible that readers of the short
story will hear new and added dimensions
previously unknown to them as well. This
is one of the indescribable qualities of this
timeless and timely story. Something new
can be experienced with each subsequent
reading of the story or viewing of the film.
 



WHO IS RODNEY GILES?

Musician/actor RODNEY GILES is a resident of
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and Cherry Grove, Fire
Island, New York. By training he is an
accomplished organist/church musician and
concert artist; by avocation he is an accomplished
stage actor/singer, with a career which began in
high school and continues to the present day four
decades later. Recent theater appearances have
been at his summer community on Fire Island, in
which he has appeared in Paul Rudnick’s
“Jeffrey,” A. R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” Paul
Harris’ “You Look For Me” and Sal Piro’s “Panzi
and Philomena Meet Frankenstein.” As a senior
in high school, he starred in the very first US high
school production of “My Fair Lady” as Henry
Higgins, and has been in the spotlight as a
musician or actor ever since.
Then came “Brokeback Mountain.” Rodney’s
life was indelibly changed on December 16,
2005, when the film opened at the Gateway
Theater in Ft. Lauderdale. Like so many
countless others, he experienced that emotional
gut punch that defied all logic and sensibility, and
not until he located
“The Ultimate Brokeback Forum”
(www.brokeback.davecullen.com)
was he able to sort out and articulate what he was          
feeling as a result of the Brokeback experience.
Obsession began and continues to the present
day. From the very beginning of this new chapter
in his life he craved anything and everything
having to do with Jack and Ennis’ moving love
story. An initial acquisition from
eBay, which was a gigantic movie poster, opened
the tap for what has become quite an amazing
watershed collection of Brokeback memorabilia,
much of which has been featured several times on
the Forum’s Memorabilia thread and several
editions of “The Daily Sheet.” Many of the items
are autographed, and some are original and
unique treasures, including all six of the available
versions of the screenplay, and the most recent
acquisitions–Ennis’ fishing net and creel case–are
the crown jewels of the collection. Rodney’s
musical acumen allowed him the ability to
transcribe portions of the film’s musical score for
keyboard performance, and he has also sung “A
love that will never grow old” on many occasions
during the summer of 2006 on Fire Island.

Rodney’s launching of a one-person dramatic
reading of the short story is the result of dayafter-
day reading aloud of Annie Proulx’s
magnificent and powerful prose, hence “The
Brokeback Reading Project.” A good many
people in the world were first introduced to Jack
and Ennis by way of Ang Lee’s outstanding film,
never having read the short story. Rodney is one
of those film-first persons who subsequently
devoured the text of the original. He may have
given himself the moniker of “Script Boy” in
some of his posts on the Forum, but he claims
that Annie Proulx’s remarkable short story needs
and deserves to be experienced by hearing it read
dramatically: “The sounds of her unique prose
add yet a further dimension to the Brokeback
experience, whether for a first-timer or repeat
viewer/reader.”

Don't miss this event!! I heard Rodney's reading in Bay City, Michigan and it added a whole new dimension to my understanding of the movie AND the story. This is a must-hear for anyone who's interest is even the slightest bit piqued by Brokeback Mountain. It causes the Campbell Scott version to pale by comparison!!

May 2019 be better for us all.

I have never heard anything read so well as Rodney read us brokeback Mountain
in Fint, Michigan. I never cry in the movie; I cried at his reading.

...wiih the possible exception of Tennessee Williams reading from his poetry, and
Yellow Bird," and  "The Glass Menagerie." (33 1/3 RPM)

Commercial time: Aguirre pointing at Jack with a CHOP of his hand. Makes me think of that scene with the ax handle sticking out of Jack's head.

Thanks to all of you who were able to share this story with me.  I am so convinced that although this story may not have been intended to be read aloud, it is a truly awesome experience when read aloud and one that needs to be shared.  Thanks again to Eric and all those at BBM Radio for arranging these two webcasts.  Now, it's on to the LIVE reading at the BBQ in Colorado!

Now he's in bed (all three of 'em, thank god) and I'm enjoying the peace and quiet  ;D.

I still can't believe it that I will go there. Well, I believe it, but my mind can't capture it fully. Me in Colorado? In Wyoming? At the BBM BBQ? Really me, travellin across the big pond for the very first time? - It's mind-boggling.

We are truly going to have an international gathering, and that is simply marvellous!  I am filled with a sense of pleasure anticipating your first trip across the Atlantic just to come to the BBQ.  A first trip always has life-influencing occurences, as I remember my first trip across the pond (to Europe) as a cocky graduate student.  WOW, was I ever impressed!  And now you'll have the opportunity to see the Rockies for yourself, how totally awesome they are!  It'll be so great to have you at the BBQ!

Hey, everybody, good evening. I wanted to say thank you to everyone like Eric and Rodney who are thinking about ways to bring us together and ways to celebrate the gentle and joyous spirit of Brokeback Mountain. I had a wonderful day. Not only did I hear Rodney's gifted voice saying Annie Proulx's formidable words, but I also downloaded the new Google Earth at the suggestion of Truman (shakestheground) and looked at my Shangrila--Brokenback Mountain in North-Central Wyoming. It was a Day in Heaven! Something I'm getting quite used to these days!!

Lee, how wonderful for you to say those lovely words -- and thank you!  And tell you what -- I've also located Brokenback on Google Earth.  It is so wonderful, and I'm SO looking forward to being there.  BTW, does the version of Google Earth that you have include a special marker for Lightning Flat?  Mine sure does!

It's nothing to be afraid of -- all it says is "Lightning Flat, Crook County, Wyoming -- The place where Jack Twist grew up" -- quite amazed when I saw that already in the version of GE that I downloaded.  Of course, I've added such places as Ten Sleep, Sage, Brokenback, as well as a few other places around the country.

I'm so looking forward to seeing you again so very soon now!

Hey Eric!

I'd like to humbly request that we plan a repeat performance of Rodney's reading?  Or maybe a downloadable audio file?

I've missed most everything that's happened here the past two whole weeks, and I'm hating that I missed this!!  I downloaded the State of the Town address and am catching up there!

Please tune into BBM Radio this Sunday 12/05 at 1:00pm ET/10:00am PT as we present:

THE BROKEBACK READING PROJECT


The epic short story by Annie Proulx

as read by Musician/Actor

RODNEY GILES



WHAT IS
BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN?


Annie Proulx, Pulitzer Prize winning author
of The Shipping News, has written some of
the most original and brilliant short stories
in contemporary literature, and for many,
“Brokeback Mountain” is her masterpiece.
It tells the tale of Ennis del Mar and Jack
Twist, two under-educated ranch hands that
come together while working as sheep
herder and camp tender one summer on a
range above the tree line on Wyoming’s
Brokeback Mountain. At first they share
only a comradeship, but it soon deepens into
a relationship that neither man comprehends.
At the end of their idyllic time on the
mountain, the two men part ways, marry and           
have children because that’s what is
expected of them by the society in which
they live. But over the course of many years
and frequent separations the relationship
between the two men becomes the most
important thing in their lives, and they do
anything they can to preserve it.
“Brokeback Mountain” was originally
published in “The New Yorker” magazine in
October 1997 and eventually published as
the final story in an anthology of Wyoming
stories by Ms. Proulx entitled Close Range.
In gorgeous and haunting prose, Annie
Proulx depicts the difficult, dangerous affair
between two young ranch hands that
survives everything but the world’s violent
intolerance.
Now a brilliant film by Ang Lee,
“Brokeback Mountain” has had profound
effect on the lives of countless people
around the world. The Oscar®-nominated
performances of Heath Ledger and Jake
Gyllenhaal have vividly brought to life the
heartbreaking tale of Ennis and Jack and
how their love for each other affected all
those with whom they shared their lives.

WHAT IS
THE BROKEBACK READING PROJECT?

For many people, “Brokeback Mountain” is
the name of the brilliantly poignant Ang Lee
film. These people never read or never had
access to the original short story. For these
“film-only” people, the short story offers
significant enough differences to exist sideby-
side with the film, offering the reader the
no-nonsense prose style of author Annie
Proulx, as well as vividly descriptive
imagery of the Wyoming mountain country.
Add to that the aural experience of actually
listening to Annie Proulx’s epic short story
read by a skilled interpreter, and “Brokeback
Mountain” takes on new and added
dimensions unknown to “film-only” people.
It’s very possible that readers of the short
story will hear new and added dimensions
previously unknown to them as well. This
is one of the indescribable qualities of this
timeless and timely story. Something new
can be experienced with each subsequent
reading of the story or viewing of the film.
 



WHO IS RODNEY GILES?

Musician/actor RODNEY GILES is a resident of
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and Cherry Grove, Fire
Island, New York. By training he is an
accomplished organist/church musician and
concert artist; by avocation he is an accomplished
stage actor/singer, with a career which began in
high school and continues to the present day four
decades later. Recent theater appearances have
been at his summer community on Fire Island, in
which he has appeared in Paul Rudnick’s
“Jeffrey,” A. R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” Paul
Harris’ “You Look For Me” and Sal Piro’s “Panzi
and Philomena Meet Frankenstein.” As a senior
in high school, he starred in the very first US high
school production of “My Fair Lady” as Henry
Higgins, and has been in the spotlight as a
musician or actor ever since.
Then came “Brokeback Mountain.” Rodney’s
life was indelibly changed on December 16,
2005, when the film opened at the Gateway
Theater in Ft. Lauderdale. Like so many
countless others, he experienced that emotional
gut punch that defied all logic and sensibility, and
not until he located
“The Ultimate Brokeback Forum”
(www.brokeback.davecullen.com)
was he able to sort out and articulate what he was         
feeling as a result of the Brokeback experience.
Obsession began and continues to the present
day. From the very beginning of this new chapter
in his life he craved anything and everything
having to do with Jack and Ennis’ moving love
story. An initial acquisition from
eBay, which was a gigantic movie poster, opened
the tap for what has become quite an amazing
watershed collection of Brokeback memorabilia,
much of which has been featured several times on
the Forum’s Memorabilia thread and several
editions of “The Daily Sheet.” Many of the items
are autographed, and some are original and
unique treasures, including all six of the available
versions of the screenplay, and the most recent
acquisitions–Ennis’ fishing net and creel case–are
the crown jewels of the collection. Rodney’s
musical acumen allowed him the ability to
transcribe portions of the film’s musical score for
keyboard performance, and he has also sung “A
love that will never grow old” on many occasions
during the summer of 2006 on Fire Island.

Rodney’s launching of a one-person dramatic
reading of the short story is the result of dayafter-
day reading aloud of Annie Proulx’s
magnificent and powerful prose, hence “The
Brokeback Reading Project.” A good many
people in the world were first introduced to Jack
and Ennis by way of Ang Lee’s outstanding film,
never having read the short story. Rodney is one
of those film-first persons who subsequently
devoured the text of the original. He may have
given himself the moniker of “Script Boy” in
some of his posts on the Forum, but he claims
that Annie Proulx’s remarkable short story needs
and deserves to be experienced by hearing it read
dramatically: “The sounds of her unique prose
add yet a further dimension to the Brokeback
experience, whether for a first-timer or repeat
viewer/reader.”

I am having technical difficulties too.

I click on the link along the right side of this page which loads LIVE365 taking me here:  http://www.live365.com/index.live&action=new1

I see a play box in the center and I click on the Play arrow.  In an animated way, the larger play box center moves a copy of itself to the left side of the page.  I click the Play arrow above that.

Nothing happens.  I try to increase the volume (it's at about 50%)...nothing happens.  I've verified my headphones are working and other audio works - nothing is set to mute on my end.

I exited and tried again - this time creating a LIVE 365 account - with the same results.

Interestingly, I can see the playlist scrolling as time passes and the ad interruptions so I believe it must be playing; I just have no audio.

Advice?

I doubt I can listen tomorrow with the group at 1, but I will probably get out my CD tomorrow afternoon at some point later in the day.

It's long overdue, and I feel that Rodney would be pleased to know that we want to hear him read again.

Lynne, sometimes the new interface does that.  It looks like it's "going to do something" but then it gets hung up....  Keep trying.  I know, it really sucks.  I can't imagine how much listenership Live365 has lost due to it being overly techincally complaicated now.

What's supposed to happen is you click the play button, and then a window opens near the station logo that shows the commercial they make you watch (  ::)  )  and then it closes and the audio stream starts.

Some of you have previously attended a simultan viewing of the movie, with chat.
Monika and I have spontaneously done the same with Rodney's reading of the story. We hadn't planned it, it just happened. A very special way to experience the story.

Thank you Rodney for the reading.
Thank you Eric for broadcasting today.
Thank you Monika for being there and sharing the time with me.

Ok, I'll be setting it to random play after the BBM Suite.
