Hello members!!!!  The Admin/Mod/Tech team is coming to you with news for the new year.

When this forum was originally founded, it was under the URL we all know, www.DaveCullen.com, however, it was often referred to as the "Ultimate Brokeback Forum".  Dave's website had a link to the forum, and the two entities were joined as one.

For a host of technical reasons beyond Dave’s technical ability, he needs to turn his website over to a service that can handle much of the work—and it can’t support the massive forum database. Dave really wants the forum to proceed, so the solution is simple: just split Dave’s personal pages and the forum to two separate web addresses. Everything else remains the same.

To continue to follow Dave Cullen, you can use the existing address,   www.DaveCullen.com .

To access the Ultimate Brokeback Forum, you will need to bookmark this new address:   https://www.UltimateBrokebackForum.com/forum.

We expect this change to take place within a week's time, and there should be no major disruption to the forum.   While the UBF will no longer be linked to DCF,  Dave Cullen will retain his ownership of both sites. 

Please continue to watch the threads/newsbox for further updates!  We will attempt to give you all 24 hours notice before the change takes place.  However, you should make note of the new address now.  If you try to log in at the old address and you are unable to, try to use the new address.  Thanks for your continued participation in this community!

We lost another Brokie forum member today. canmark joined the forum on 12/25/2005.
Mark started on the old Salon Blog that Dave Cullen started back in 2005, before DCF was started.

His first post on 12/27/05:
Wow, I'm so happy to be finally up and running on the new message board. Thanks to Dave C. and the Man In Parentheses. When I get a chance I will more formally introduce myself, but I was one of the Mark's on the old board. The "can" in "canmark" stands for Canada, as I am from Toronto. Happy Holidays everyone! May the Force of BBM be with you.

Mark loved movies and started very early recommending movies to forum members. He also loved the theater and posted about attending the theater as much as he could in Canada.

Mark was active on the forum up until December 2015. He posted a lot all over the forum, but really liked to discuss the films and theater he enjoyed seeing.

He was diagnosed with ALS – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, known as Lou Gerhigs disease, and has been battling this disease for years. He succumbed to this terrible disease yesterday, 03/27/17. He was very open about his diagnosis and chronicled it on Facebook.

May he rest in peace from his battle with this terrible disease. He will be missed.

Thank you for telling us, Linda. I used to enjoy Mark's film posts, and he was so brave about his illness. Rest in peace, Mark.

Eternal rest grant unto him, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

Oh course! I knew as soon as you told me, it would be obvious! haha.

I figured it had to be a running joke at the time, but couldn't place it. But it came back fast. I forgot we called Greg that. I miss him.

The Oscar-Winning Actor Martin Landau Has Died Aged 89

(LOS ANGELES) — Martin Landau, the chameleon-like actor who gained fame as the crafty master of disguise in the 1960s TV show Mission: Impossible, then capped a long and versatile career with an Oscar for his poignant portrayal of aging horror movie star Bela Lugosi in 1994's Ed Wood, has died. He was 89.
Landau died Saturday of unexpected complications during a short stay at UCLA Medical Center, his publicist Dick Guttman said.

Celebrities and Filmmakers Pay Tribute to Director George Romero, Who Died Aged 77

George A. Romero, the filmmaker behind such classic zombie horror films as "Night of the Living Dead" and "Day of the Dead", died Sunday of lung cancer. He was 77.
A statement from Romero’s manager noted that Romero leaves behind friends, family, and “a filmmaking legacy that has endured, and will continue to endure, the test of time.” That sentiment certainly was apparent as celebrities paid tribute to the artist across social media.

Not really a good day.

Just heard that a neighbour, two or three streets away from here  (someone we don't know very well, but are on extremely friendly chatting terms), learned that his son has killed (hanged) himself today.

Age 30, a scholar, it seems a nice brilliant guy. Lived 50 km from here in a university town. Don't know any circumstances yet, but this must be a shock for his wife & him - as it for us, to a much lesser extent of course.

Happened this night.

The police came at 9 am and had to tell them.
