As For Brokeback Mountain…

I loved it.

I’ve had some interesting comments from some of my Bretheren and Sisteren in Jesus on the subject but to that I say psssshhhht….get over yourselves. 

Anybody who has ever loved somebody intensely (gay, straight, whatever) and varying circumstances prevent you from being with that person….it hits home.

 Once again, I must climb aboard my soapbox and say, yes, I know what the B-I-B-L-E says about that whole subject.  I’m good with it.  I also know that the Good Book has  plenty else to say about sins of all sorts and that Jesus especially got aggravated at Pharisee types. 

Plus, Jake Gyllenhaal  and Heath Ledger are just plain pleasant to watch herding sheep whilst wearing cowboy boots and stuff.  I still don’t get why they gave Ennis a Southern accent cause last I checked, Wyoming isn’t in the South, but, that’s just me. 

How tragic is it that Heath Ledger isn’t around anymore?  Very tragic.  Goodness.

Which One?

I don’t have to be up at the cracka dawn to get to the other side of town in the morning and I feel the Crud coming on.  Even so, I am in the mood to watch a movie. 

These are the choices:

This pollyanna-poster31


Or this…brokeback-mountain

Quite a contrast, huh?  I’ve seen Pollyanna a bajillion and two times but I just love it.  Can’t hep it.  Specially when Pollyanna sings “America’ dressed like a flag…Agnes Moorehead; Jane Wyman played such a good, mean ol’ crotchety, uptight beeeatch; Karl Malden (and his nose) is great..then Pollyanna falls outta the window and gets paralyzed and Aunt Polly turns nice and everybody is happy.

Eh, ok…Brokeback it is.   I know I’m terribly unhip and behind and probably the last person to see this.

Problem now is I can’t figure out the configuration of the tv/dvd player/cable that the Engineering Brother In Law set up for me.  He showed me last week how to get it to work.  Guess I shoulda took notes.

I’ll watch it on the computer, I guess.
