Isn't this a wonderful aid to the A-B-C-s game?  You know, you could call it the A-B-C-s of Brokeback Mountain Bible.....  God bless all of you dedicated and helpful girls.....  Who says you can't have your cake and eat it?

Sincerely,
Mrs. Mary Twist

Thanks for your kind words.  We've missed you, so why don't you come on over and post a word on the "ABCs" game board?
Fran, Ann Marie, and Sandy

I totally enjoy this game.
It lets me dissect the movie and realize a few more of the truths that it talks about.

Brokeback Mountain is a masterpiece and will stand up to our repeated examination of it.

Thank you to everyone still playing the game, and thank you to Fran-E and Memento-Dearest and Mayor WillYumm for keeping it running so smoothly.

Front-Ranger and I intend to reach 100, with all the help we can get.  I am happy that Prowl-Among-Us is active again as well.  and Dr. Paul too.  and ..

As the "ABCs of BBM" game has advanced into its amazing 106th round, I thought this might be as good a place as any to try to describe what it is that keeps us coming back to this game. 

So I will start:

I keep posting letters because, for me, there is much satisfaction to be gained in seeing something through to its conclusion.  I like the idea of working towards a goal.

That's interesting, Fran. I'm not sure what the "conclusion" would be.
I enjoy the process myself.

I also got hooked on IMDb.  I think it was connecting to other crazy, obsessed people who are fun and witty and know a lot about our beloved film. I'm delighted at what other folks come up with, and I enjoy the challenge.

I tend to check the game in between stuff at work rather than at home. It's a great diversion. It's also a way of keeping the film fresh in my mind every day.

Send in the Clowns
   Forgive me Stephen Sondheim

Isn't it rich?     All those sheep and no recipes
Are we a pair?    Ennis and Jack
Me here at last on the ground,    Ennis in his trailer
You in mid-air.    Jack in heaven    
Send in the clowns.    Those ABC clowns    

Isn't it bliss?    Answers Played List
Don't you approve?    Mods never approve    
One who keeps tearing around,    Will Yum    
One who can't move.    Waiting out two letters  
Where are the clowns?    Those ABC clowns  
Send in the clowns.    Can't keep them away!  

Just when I'd stopped opening doors,    JT is gone  
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours,    Damn, You beat me to the post, again  
Making my entrance again with my usual flair,    Will Yum  
Sure of my lines,    Are you a teacher or what?  
No one is there.    Come on it's only 3 a.m.  

Don't you love farce?    A farce of nature  
My fault I fear.    I deserved that XXX.  
I thought that you'd want what I want.    Just add -ing
Sorry, my dear.    If you XXX me once more I will ...
But where are the clowns?    Those ABC clowns.
Quick, send in the clowns.    Well at least two more
Don't bother, they're here.    The Xcitement is rare

Isn't it rich?    All those words . .
Isn't it queer,    "Q" is querulent
Losing my timing this late    "W" is wristwatch
In my career?    Dr. Dr. there must be a medical term.
And where are the clowns?    Dreaming of Brokeback
There ought to be clowns.    Prowling around.
Well, maybe next year.    A quadrennium, I fear


Oh Fran
I think the ABCs of Brokeback are moderately interesting.

Well done Toast! I would only change one line...

Aren't we a pair?    Yes, we're a zeugmatic construction
 :D

Sorry to bump Ennis and Jack but they have their share of the glory and this is for us crazy ABC clowns.


=comment=
Yes, Zee, after 105 complete rounds, the Playerz have more than earned their share of glory!  What would this game be without its clever and committed Playerz?

Toast,

You have made my day with your very clever post! 

Thanks for acknowledging the importance of the Answer List.  This "Answer Gyrl" is thrilled to see the ABCs Answer List immortalized in verse.  I believe Sandy and Ann Marie will be pleased, too.

Just one picky little detail on my end....  Mods "never" approve?  Them are fighting words.  Come on, you know the Mods "always" approve; that is, unless there's a "problem."  (Mods do not like "problems.")  But I'm going to grant you poetic license...this time anyway.

Fran

Hello, everyone,

Yours truly regards the ABCs of Brokeback Mountain yet another tribute to the story and film about my son Jack and his longterm secret boyfriend Ennis whose love together moved a mountain!

I am most grateful for what to me is so much more than just a game.  Jack would have loved it.  We used to regularly play parcheese.

God bless all of your delightful participants.

Mrs. Mary Twist
