Woot! Gay Cowboys Again

I know I know, I already talked about Brokeback Mountain when I heard about the movie a while back but really, how much can one talk about Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall kissing until it gets old? I haven’t hit that point yet, I’ll let you know if it ever happens.

But okay, a different angle to the Brokeback Mountain issue is that my husband won two free passes to an advance screening and so my Pearl Jam buddy and I are totally going and I promise to give you all my review the day after.

My other friend kept referring to it as Bareback Mountain but I had to tell her that I think that is a different kind of gay cowboy movie. Heh.

The new weekly theme is going up today at the Writerbabes blog along with a new contest. Don’t forget to check it out.

More later on the next Cascadia Wolves book but I need to grab some more tea. I’ll leave you all to ruminate on Heath and Jake, smooching up a storm.

    You can never speak too much about Brokeback Mountain. hahaha.

    Really, though, I hope not. I have been deluging my readers with it.

    And it just picked up four Indie Spirit noms this morning, tied for second behind The Squie & The Whale.

    Links to more info on that and just about everything you could imagine on Brokeback here:


    I built an entire web page for it. Make me stop!!! (No, don’t.)

    Well, the link got cut off, but you can click on my name.

    And a direct link to my post on the Indie noms is here: http://blogs.salon.com/0001137/2005/11/29.html#a1773

    And btw, I saw it at the Denver Film Fest, and it was incredible. Even better than the book.

    And whle we’re at it, last night, Rolling Stone posted its review by Peter Travers. Four stars. Link:


    (That link is probably too long, too. Follow the link on my name to get to all of them.)

    Dave, thanks for posting this. I’ve been wanting to read the book for some time now and while I do joke about the fabulousness of watching Heath and Jake in love scenes, I do have a great, deep hope that the more that we see movies and books that feature love and relationships between gays and lesbians, the closer we can come as a culture to accepting that love is love.
