Major Announcements--Current
« on: March 09, 2006, 03:53:30 PM »
This thread is for major announcements and should be the first place to look for anything major that all members might want to see. This is read only as only the mods can post.

New Way To Support the Forum
 
Many members have been asking for an easy way to make a recurring small monthly donation to the forum. We are pleased to announce that we have finally been able to add this feature. By clicking on the link below, you will be able to set up, through PayPal, a monthly donation of $10 to the forum. So many members have expressed that the hours of enjoyment they get from the forum each month is worth the price of a movie ticket or a lunch or a couple of Starbucks trips; however, for many, making a small donation often does not seem worth it, while for others it slips their minds.

This is why we added this new way to make a small but meaningful monthly donation to the forum. The Ultimate Brokeback Forum and the Ultimate Brokeback Guide is a not-for-profit website (although not registered with the IRS, so not tax deductible), and your donations help fund the ongoing operations of the forum including hosting fees, technical and professional fees, and other operational expenses. They also help us fund our many campaigns that have received worldwide attention as we seek to bring BBM and its messages to a broader audience.
 
To set up a monthly donation of $10, just follow the link below. As always, all member support is greatly appreciated. 

At members requests, we have also set up an easy way to make donations of $25, $50, or $100 per month. You can also look for those links below.

To make a one time donation to the forum in any amount, please click on the PayPal button at the bottom of the forum home page.

To make a donation of $10 per month, go here:

Our Book

Update--We Have Raised $3000 Towards Our $4000 Goal

Our volunteers are working very hard to produce our forum's very own book entitled Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film. The book should be available for preorder in mid-to-late August and in print by mid-September. We are now putting together a very aggressive marketing plan, so we can introduce to the world-at-large the great impact the book and film had on readers and viewers around the world. We know this book will be treasured by many of our members; however, we hope it can have an impact far beyond the world of Brokeaholics.

University academicians and social researchers are already telling us this book will be very significant to the field of pop culture and film because no other film has ever had such an impact on viewers that fans chronicled the impact in a book of their own making. As with our ad campaign, we are literally making history and helping to cement BBM as one of the greatest films in the history of cinema in terms of impact and audience reaction. It is very exciting.

You can help us as we put together the best marketing plan possible. To give us your great ideas, to share information on contacts, or to discuss marketing strategies, please visit us in the book thread over the next weeks. We hope our marketing can include a wide range of options including media coverage, author signings, coverage in the gay press, radio and TV talk shows (who knows--this sounds like the type of grass roots activism Oprah loves to cover), and more. We are waiting to hear your great ideas. The book thread can be found here:

http://davecullen.com/forum/index.php?topic=8935.1065

Also, we have raised money from our generous members to publish our book. We are now trying to raise seed money for marketing the book. Over the next few weeks, we hope to raise a minimum of $4,000 to help us pay for marketing costs and fees. If you can donate to help us in a bid to make film history, then go here:

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=dave%40davecullen%2ecom&item_name=Book%20Campaign&no_shipping=1&tax=0&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8

Update on Our DVD Campaign

We are very excited that Annie Proulx has singled out our DVD campaign for special recognition. To date, we have donated over 700 DVDs to 48 states, several Canadian provinces, two countries in Europe, and The Bahamas (where BBM was banned). We have funds to make donations to the other two states--we are just waiting on a library in those two states to accept our DVD donation.

Our volunteers are still calling libraries, donating DVDs and money, and helping us to place DVDs. If you would like to help, we have two easy ways for anyone to assist:

1. Donate money--To place a DVD costs us approximately $20. To donate money for us to purchase and place DVDs, follow this link:

http://www.davecullen.com/brokebackmountain/adcampaign.html

2. Ship a DVD Yourself--If you would like to purchase and ship a DVD yourself, we have a list of libraries still waiting to receive the DVD from us. Having individuals purchase and ship one DVD helps us to speed up the process. So, for the price of a DVD plus shipping, you can ship a DVD to a library. Contact peteinportland at pete@davecullen.com or via PM to get an address for a library waiting for a DVD.

We would love to reach 1,000 libraries by the end of the year. You can help us make it happen!

BROKEBACK PROFILES -- MEET THE CREATORS


Annie Proulx


We are honored to share with you the second in our ongoing series: "Brokeback Profiles -- Meet the Creators."  We kicked off the series in May with Brokeback producer and Focus Features President James Schamus, and today we are proud to bring you the acclaimed author herself, Annie Proulx.
 
We can be especially proud that Ms. Proulx has chosen to respond to our Forum's request because in December 2005, she posted on her website that she will no longer do any interviews connected with Brokeback Mountain due to time constraints.  In her reply, she included a short but inspiring note:

"Sorry to be slow in responding to your Qs.  Busy days here.  I admire and appreciate your work on Brokeback's behalf, especially the placement of DVD's in rural libraries, places where the sentiment and bias of isolated people replicates its narrow-minded view."

For more information on our Forum's DVD Campaign, please go here.

To see the profile on Annie Proulx, please go here: http://davecullen.com/forum/index.php?topic=11455.msg363236#msg363236

This important email was sent earlier by Dave to all Forum members except those with AOL addresses. We're posting it here (with one little edit to a web address) in case you missed it. It mentioned getting your order in that week so that your book can come from the first printing. That is still possible for this next week.
- Kitty Hawk


We have three announcements we think are going to interest you:
 
 
• Our book: the presses are ready to roll—awaiting orders from you
• A new book website with bonus features
• A new plan for The Daily Sheet

 
1. Our Book

 
 It's done! After a full year of relentless writing, editing, designing and illustrating, the book is complete and drawing rave reviews for professionalism from the publisher. "Both the interior and covers are awesome," said David Collins, Editor, Wingspan Press. "Your designers did a wonderful job." He described Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film as one of the best-looking books Wingspan had produced.

 
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:
 
 
We need you to order this week, so we can maximize the first print run. That's important for two reasons:

• So you get your book out of that first run—you'll get it much faster.
• The more we print in that run, the more money we save, to support the marketing drive and future campaigns.

We are considering a first print run in the range of 500 copies or more, but cannot make that investment without sufficient orders.

Order Now!
http://www.davecullen.com/brokeback/book/


 
2. Website: Bonus Features not available in the book
 

Volunteers put together our Beyond Brokeback website!
http://www.davecullen.com/brokeback/book

 with these features of special interest to our members:

• bios of our writers/members/volunteers
• discussion guides
• sample stories
• bonus artwork not in the book -- a sample of three rotated weekly
• "The rest of the story . . ." -- an evolving area for fresh chapters and updates on some of the most moving episodes in the book

We would love to thank LoveEmBoys for her patient and talented work in putting it all together; to Namdak and neatfreak for their provocative discussion questions; to CharlotteV and PatSinnott for working on the press release; and to Elle_ann and her team made up of Bobby19in1963, LoveEmBoys, pwday, twistedboy, brokeback_1, and trubrokeback for collecting the biographies of authors and volunteers.

 
3. TDS Plan
 
 
Thanks to everyone who expressed a desire to see The Daily Sheet (TDS), our forum newsletter, continue in some way.  Many of you posted excellent suggestions and volunteered to help.  I am happy to announce that Kittyhawk (Lydia) has been working with tellyouwhat (Ellen), former Daily Sheet editor, to organize the ideas and suggestions.  Within a few days we hope to have a working plan.
 

Big thanks go to Marge_Innavera, our current TDS editor, for the issues she produced this past week, and to the rest of the TDS staff.  I am so glad the formatters (gnash, whiplash, and mobody) have agreed to stay on board.  We appreciate our continuing columnists and our new contributors.  If you take a look at the current issue, you'll see some new names.  Together, I believe we can all help keep TDS a part of our forum.

 
If there are things you like about the forum newsletter, or if there are improvements you'd like to see, please take a few seconds to let the editor and staff members know via the feedback link Response thread for The Daily Sheet  http://davecullen.com/forum/index.php?topic=8377.new#new  at the bottom of each issue. Volunteers doing tough jobs thrive on feedback.

Thanks.

Dave, and the whole forum team.

The following sample e-mails can be sent to friends and acquaintances.  Personalize your greetings and add stories about how Brokeback affected you, but be brief, and remember the book is the star of the e-mail or letter.


For authors:

Dear ___________________

I am excited about a book I co-authored with a team of volunteers at The Ultimate Brokeback Forum.  Our book is titled Beyond Brokeback:  The Impact of a Film.

Hundreds of people's lives were changed after seeing the 2005 movie, Brokeback Mountain.  The authors are from all walks of life; male, female, straight, gay, young, old.  We have been amazed at the stories shared.  Some are funny, some are heartfelt and touching. 

The book, published by WingSpan Press out of San Francisco, is available in hardcover and trade paperback.  Professionals in graphics, editing, and other areas of publishing have dedicated their talent to the project. Visit our website BeyondBrokeback.com to learn more about the authors, to see sample chapters, and to order.

I'm sure you know people who will love this book, so help me spread the word by sharing this e-mail.

Thank you

P.S. All proceeds from this book will go towards our forum's continuing campaigns to promote the spirit of Brokeback.

Part of our original marketing plan has always been to mobilize our members in your local communities.  We have created a black and white flyer which you can print on plain or colored paper to use as handouts, or to leave at:

-- libraries
-- coffee houses
-- book fairs
-- community centers






Thanks to Bobby19in1963 for helping with the layout and creation of this flyer.

Per tutti gli altri


Caro/Cara ________________,

Sono felice di presentarti questo libro, prodotto dai membri del “Ultimate Brokeback Forum”, il Forum fondamentale su Brokeback Mountain. Il libro si intitola “Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film” (“Oltre Brokeback: l’impatto di un film”).

La vita di centinaia di persone è profondamente cambiata dopo aver visto il film “Brokeback Mountain” nel 2005. Gli autori delle storie contenute in questo libro sono persone di ogni genere ed estrazione sociale, uomini, donne, eterosessuali, omosessuali, giovani e meno giovani. I loro racconti ci hanno profondamente colpiti: alcuni sono divertenti, altri profondi e commoventi.

Il libro, pubblicato dalla casa editrice “WingSpan Press” di San Francisco, è disponibile sia con copertina rigida che morbida. Grafici e redattori professionisti hanno dedicato il loro talento a questo nostro progetto. Vieni a visitare il nostro sito web BeyondBrokeback.com per scoprire qualcosa di più sui nostri autori e per leggere qualche estratto delle loro storie.

Sono certa/certo che conoscerai persone che apprezzeranno e ameranno questo libro, per questo ti chiedo di aiutarmi a diffondere la notizia inoltrando questa e-mail.

Grazie di cuore

För författare:

Hej!

Jag skulle gärna vilja berätta om en bok jag har varit medförfattare till, tillsammans med andra medlemmar på The Ultimate Brokeback Forum. Vår bok heter Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film.

Filmen Brokeback Mountain, som kom 2005, har förändrat hundratals människors liv. Bidragen i boken kommer från människor i alla möjliga livssituationer; män och kvinnor, hetero- och homosexuella, unga och gamla. Vi har förundrats över alla berättelser som har kommit fram. Några är roliga, andra är djupt kända och gripande.

Boken är utgiven av WingSpan Press i San Fransisco och finns med hårda pärmar eller i pocket. Proffs på grafik, redigering och andra områden inom förlagsverksamhet har lånat sina talanger åt projektet. Boken finns att beställa på vår hemsida BeyondBrokeback.com, där man även hittar mer information om författarna och några utdrag att läsa.

Du känner säkert till människor som skulle uppskatta den här boken, så hjälp gärna till att sprida ryktet genom att skicka det här mailet vidare!

Tack!

(underteckning)

P. S. Alla intäkter från boken kommer att gå till forumets fortsatta arbete för att sprida budskapet och andan från Brokeback Mountain.

We hope to solve our slowdown issues with a major software upgrade. This will begin Saturday July 14 at 3 PM EDT. Until it completes, the forum will be inaccessible--you'll see a message that the forum is in maintenance mode, with a link to our temporary home at BayCityJohn's forum.
 
The time to upgrade is uncertain. We hope to accomplish it in 24 hours. It could take less time, or more. So please be patient as we are trying our best to make it as painless as possible, with the least downtime.
 
BayCityJohn's forum is here:
