Brokeback Mountain

Yep, I suspect I'm the only gay blogger in the universe that hasn't commented yet on Brokeback Mountain. But I haven't seen it yet, and ain't got much to say.


There's a video about the Brokeback Happy Meal on Queerclick, from Fries on the Side [link currently exceeded its bandwidth]. The video itself is more or less safe for work except one line ["Tastes like cum!"] [which may be the greatest line in the video], but Queerclick itself is not.

hey owlish, couldn't agree more - loved the short and found it funny that so many people at queerclick were put off by the satirical humor. "Brokeback Sauce!"

I didn't blog it. I didn't find it very emotionally involving, altho Heath Ledger is good. I'm a huge Annie Proulx fan, & I thought there was something false about turning her oblique, gritty story of 2 outsiders into a vehicle for 2 pretty Hollywood stars. It wouldn't be getting gay raves if it starred 2 unattractive character actors.

Interesting. Now maybe I should hunt down the short story before watching the movie.

Mark Steyn wrote a good piece on it too, available at his site...
