Post BBM events, BBM news, or links to other BBM sites

This thread is to post any information about BBM happenings in the real world. Sales, events, things from other discussion Boards. If it is BBM related and happening outside the forum, post it here. Also, feel free to post links to other BBM related sites here.

(We have separate threads for our forum in the news and critic's reviews.)

Our Brokeback Mountain in Vermont has been mentioned in the forums here but since there is just so much to go through, I wanted to mention it again here because we really need your help.

Please visit our website www.brokebackmountainvermont.com and read about what we are doing here in Vermont in regards to Brokeback Mountain.

In addition if there is anyone here that is good at making internet banners (468X60) with Photoshop or other program , we need someone to volunteer to create a couple for us.

We were hoping to have some with our green mountains in the background and wording to the effect of Brokeback Mountain Vermont and www.brokebackmountainvermont.com on them somewhere.

If you can make banners, please email me at john@brokebackmountainvermont.com

THANKS!!!


John

The man who bought the BBM shirts also purchased the BBM postcard and is displaying them all at an event in LA this Saturday, April 8.

Many people have asked for the link to the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

Here it is:

www.matthewshepard.org

They are a great group, and they have resources for teens as well. Hopefully, we can partner with them in the upcoming months for a couple of events.

A number of members have said they are having a hard time with the lighting on their DVDs. If that is a problem for you, please report it to Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Their email is below.

Here is a BBM site that is mostly in French and English (with a smattering of Italian and Portugese).

I got an acknowledgement today about one of the DVD's I donated, this one the librarian at Central Missouri State University.  Her message included some interesting news:

I received the DVD for Brokeback Mountain in today's mail. Thank you very much. You will have an official receipt letter mailed to you shortly.

Are you aware that the film is being shown on campus this Thurday, April 13 and is open to all? Co-writer Diana Osanna will be here. See below.

This Thursday, April 13, screening of the film "Brokeback Mountain" in Elliot Union ballroom (236) at 6 p.m. The movie will be followed by a question and answer session with co-screenwriter and producer, plus Academy Award winner, Diana Ossana. This event is free and open to all.

The movie and Ms. Ossana's talk are brought to you by the following:
Art Center Gallery  *  Clay Club College of Arts and Sciences  *  Department of Communication  *  Department of Theater  *  EMU Honors College  *  Queers and Allies  *  Student Life Office Spotlight  *  Women's Studies
This is a very collaborative campus effort!

This gave me a chuckle:

http://www.afterelton.com/columns/2006/4/14.html

Speaking of Brokeback, an alert reader wrote in last week to bitch-slap, er, correct an error. I said the Brokeback Mountain DVD was number four on Amazon. In fact, it was number one, It was the full screen version that was number four. Now please tell the folks at Dave Cullen's Ultimate Brokeback to stop making death threats. I'm sorry already. (FYI, Brokeback is still number one—and not just in all of our hearts.)

I've posted this on the little Brits thread but I'm posting it here too so just in case it's not noticed there..

Calling all Brits (and those passing through the UK) - have we all seen this

http://books.guardian.co.uk/news/articles/0,,1756384,00.html

This is a list of the 50 best film adaptations of all time as drawn by a panel of experts who obviously have good taste because BBM is there! We get to vote on the best so....well I probably don't need to say anything else really! The competition is fierce but lets put on a good show at least  ;)
