Hey Taj,

Let me add my voice to the chorus of welcomes.  I was on IMDb, but didn't post much, and I red-lined it here when I first saw Phillip's invite.  There's a sticky thread in Movie Resources of memorable posts from 'back in the day' at IMDb if you want to reminisce.

http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=2135.msg33323#msg33323

I'd be interested to hear more about the ban in Malaysia.  I posted a few articles a long time ago, but I think they were mostly about BBM being banned in China.  I think it's a huge triumph when the power of what people want to see/hear/read triumphs over what others think is appropriate, but that's probably my neo-American-hippie-self speaking.  ::)

I'd also love to hear what it is about Brokeback Mountain that touches you so deeply, on a personal level.  So, if you want to, start yourself a thread in 'Our Daily Thoughts' and spill it :) !

Again - Welcome - we're glad you're here!
Lynne

Hello. I am very new to this forum but I find it very comfortable and warm as i was extended an invitation by such lovely people. I fell in love with BBM the first time I saw it and I look forward to sharing with others who have been positively moved by this fine film. I just have to get used to the format and all!

Welcome, Faye!  Nice to have you here.  When did you see the movie for the first time?  Just recently?

No more beans!

Hi Barb! I just realized I didn't introduce myself adequately!

I am a 46 year old heterosexual single Mom born and raised in south Georgia where both of my parents were educators. I spent most of my married life (14 years) living in Seattle, Washington until about 4 years ago now I'm back home in Georgia. I have been teaching middle school choral music now for about 20 years and I adore poetry and music.....ALL kinds of music from Bach to Rock although I was stictly classically trained as an itty bitty thing. I have 3 awesome children, 2 girls and 1 boy.

I first BBM on November 29th of this year and I haven't been quite the same since.

Hey there, again, Faye!  I didn't realize you were in Georgia!  (This means you get whisky in your coffee in addition to cherry cake ;) ) Seriously, tho, I'm in TN, and I can practically count southeast US Brokies on one hand!  You're going to find a lot in common with people here.  Roland is a teacher. There are lots of parents (Ellemeno/Seattle and EdnBarby/Florida pop immediately to mind).  David925 and Andrew and Scott and (...tons of people  I'm leaving out) alll are interested in Classsical Music.

Welcome!
