It is hard to believe 3 years has zipped by so quickly.  We have shared so much with each other and all because of one masterpiece film.  Many hugs and kisses to everyone.  It is my hope that 2009 is a truly memorable year for each Brokie member and the ones soon to join!  Happy New Year everyone!

Who knew that three years after the movie aired that it would spawn off such an incredible global response that continues to be so strong?  To all the new members who have just been touched by the movie recently, we really truly understand what you are experiencing.  Some of us long to have that magical mesmerizing feeling again, some of us still do, but most importantly, the friendships developed through the years have made this forum strong, and will continue to keep the flame burning!

How many ways can I say thank you for
All the gifts I’ve found here?
People from all over the world bound by
Peace, respect and love. Three
Years of laughter, tears and sharing our hearts with each other.

How could I ever express what all of you mean to me?
Over the miles and different languages and time zones,
Love always seems to prevail.
It is, after all, the universal language.
Destiny brought me here
And you all make me want to stay.
Years from now, I will still hold all of you in my heart.
So I wish you a happy holiday and all the very best in 2009.

אני מרגישה בת מזל במיוחד שאני זוכה לחגוג את יום השנה של הפורום בפעם השלישית אתכם. שלושת השנים האלו בפורום היו מיוחדות
עבורי יותר מכפי שאוכל לתאר, וכל זה בזכות האנשים כאן
השנה האחרונה הייתה אמוציונלית מאוד עבורי, עם הרבה אושר כיוון שיכולתי לקחת חלק בשלוש פגישות של הפורום, וגם עם אבל עמוק בגלל האובדן הבלתי ניתן לתיאור של אדם היקר כל כך לי ולרבים מאתנו. אבל גם ברגעי האושר וגם ברגעי הכאב אתם הייתי שם איתי, לחלוק את הצחוק ואת הדמעות, וזה היה הדבר החשוב ביותר

אני מאחלת לכולנו עוד הרבה שנים מאושרות יחד, שנים של חברות עמוקה, של אהבה ושל קבלה כמו השלוש שהיו לנו. יום שנה שמח לכולם, וחג מולד שמח לאלו שחוגגים אותו

אוהבת את כולכם, קרן

I feel incredibly lucky that I get to celebrate the forum's anniversary for the third time with you. These three years in the forum have been special to me more than I can describe, and it's all because of the people here.
This last year has been very emotional for me, with a lot of joy since I was able to attend three brokie gatherings, and also a deep grief because of the unimaginable loss of a man who is so dear to me, and to many of us. But both in the joyful and in the painful moments you were there with me, to share the laughter and the tears, and that was the most important thing.

I wish us all many more happy years together, years of deep friendship, love and acceptance like these three ones we've had. Happy anniversary everybody, and a merry christmas to those who celebrate it.

Love you all, Keren.

Happy Third Anniversary and Happy Holidays. I wish a happy and healthy New Year to you and yours. I hope 2009 brings you lots of love, peace and the fulfillment of dreams.  Love, Michelle

Liebe Brokie Freunde,
irgendwie kann ich es nicht fassen dass schon 3 Jahre vergangen sind; und dieser Ort hier lebt und blüht und gibt uns allen immer noch eine Heimat die wir nicht erwartet hatten.
Ich wünsche uns allen eine friedliche Festtagszeit und ein gesundes und glückbringendes 2009 - zusammen hier vereint in Liebe und Freundschaft!


Dear Brokie friends,
it seems incredible to me that 3 years have already gone by; and this place here still lives and blooms and gives us all a home where none was expected.

3rd Anniversary Video

Posted by ethan on December 10

Today is exactly three years after I saw BBM in the theatre in NYC. It was a date of life changing. It prompted me to seek out others who might feel lost as I did by starting this forum. I am just grateful and proud to have this place where one can escape from the reality sometimes. Real life can be cruel with challenges but it is more bearable with your love and support and with something to look forward to.

During the past three years, people come and go. It is sad to see those who used to be active but are no longer here. Although it saddened me, it makes me even happier to have shared a part of this journey with them. No matter where the destination we are heading in our lives, it is the path we are together that counts. It is a privilege to share this journey with every one of you.

For how long --- as long as we can ride it. There is no reins on this one.

On this special date and fast approaching our 3-year anniversary of ennisjack and BBM, here is the video which I dedicate to all of you. Thanks for the past three years and I hope there will be more to come.

Forum's First and Second Anniversaries



December 17 marks the anniversary at ennisjack.com. How time flies. The forum started with discussions about Brokeback Mountain and continues to evolve. It is our cyber home where Brokies share and bonded.  Click here for the 2 years anniversary thread and here for the 1 year anniversary.



ennisjack.com Chronology - past, present & future

Excerpts

The Birth of ennisjack.com

I saw BBM on December 9 in New York City, the day of premier in the US. A friend of mine asked me to go and that was the first time I heard of the movie. I didn't know the short story, didn't know Annie Proulx - nothing. All I knew was Ang Lee. And yes..sorry didn't know Jake and Heath either. Nada. There I went with my friend and Bubu. I sobbed right after I left the movie theatre and BBM had stayed with me since then. Nothing prepared me for this magnitude of obsession, or fascination rather…

…I found the free board at Xsorbit and it all started from there and the board went live on December 17, 2005. I started this forum with only one thing in mind - a place where one can share freely without prejudice and judgement, one can get as much as information about BBM, and one can enjoy. A mission, if you will - a community that is supportive, informative and enjoyable…

…I often think had BBM won the best picture at the Oscar, the forum could not have lasted this long. We united and grew stronger to defend such an injustice as we ached for the suffering of Ennis and Jack. Everything happens for a reason. The reason of this forum is the BBM. When you come to think of it, it is all about BBM that connects us. BBM is the catalyst for whatever it might be inside of our hearts which manifested to our affection and love to BBM and this extended family.

I often refer this as a BBM journey. When the journey will end, I don't know. But what I do know is when I look back at the journey, I can proudly say I have a great time and have no regrets. It is one hell of a journey because of so many great people around the worlds bonded and sharing. Thanks for being a part of this journey.

BBM/ennisjack in Yahoo Time Capsule

Started by ksxks (aka Kathy) on October 25 2006

Maybe we should put something Brokeback into the Yahoo Time Capsule?  It must be submitted by November 8.  See below.

They're calling this an "electronic anthropology" of the on-line global community.  You can put in words, picture, video, voice, etc.  The categories are Love, Anger, Fun, Sorrow, Faith, Beauty, Past, Now, Hope, You.

A very simple thing would be one of our banners (with the ennisjack "motto" on it).  Or even one of someone's collages or wallpapers with the motto on it.  I could submit it, since I'm on Yahoo email – though if anyone else is on Yahoo also and wants to, fine with me.  But we'd just need to decide what would best represent us.

Actually we made it!   Click on the banner below to visit the Yahoo Time Capsule thread.





In Memory of Heath Ledger

The miracle that brought you to me
gave me the gift of laughter in the sound of your voice
gave me the music that only your harmonica can make
gave me the light that sparkle when fire reflected from your eyes

The miracle that brought you to me
gave me the steadfast love I can count on
gave me the truest friend a man can depend on
gave me the passion for life to carry on

The miracle that brought you to me
showed me the meaning of love
showed me the meaning of life
showed me the meaning of what matters

When two hearts beat as one
When two minds think as one
When two souls dream as one
When two people fit together like two shirts,
one inside the other, two skins perfectly fitted together

When you touch me, the world stops
When you kiss me, time stands still
With your arms wrapped around me
I feel safer than in my own fortress

With your hands holding mine
I feel understood, I feel loved
The warmth of your hand warms my heart
The strength of your hand gives me strength

With your eyes on mine
The universe disappears
And only you matter
Only you exist for me

When you whisper sweet dreams in my ear
I believe every word, every dream
I follow you to the end of the rainbow
And back again if you'd only ask

All those times we shared
All those dreams we dreamt
All those talks we had
Like we had all eternity in the palm of our hands

I am thankful for every moment, each second
I am grateful for each glance, each touch
A miracle brought you into my life
A miracle made you my cowboy, and me yours

I know not why it happened, just that I am forever grateful
with you in my life, and I in yours.
You are the gift unexpected
You are the miracle in my life

For you Tamara... :ghug: <^( :^^) :c) ^f^

Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo!

Merry Christmas (that's Happy Christmas) And Happy New Year, Everyone!

About Posting Pictures

If you don't mind this is a reminder of our guidelines about posting pictures on the forum. 

We understand many members are big fans of Heath, Jake and others. As supportive fans, let's respect them as who they are and not manipulate their pics to fulfill our fantasy. Collages are allowed of the Brokeback Mountain characters, and of each actor individually, but not of both actors mixed together or the actors mixed with others, like ourselves. To maintain this level of respect, the forum also asks the members not to post paparazzi photos or photos that constitute a clear invasion of their privacy.

You will find all the Forum's Guidelines & Rules here.

Love is a Force of Nature



Dear Brokies,

Who would have guessed that a few years ago, a love story between two cowboys would deeply mark so many people and change their lives forever?

Love could move mountains they say...  Love certainly had 35 people traveling from 3 different continents and 11 countries to meet in Brussels, we are all born from Ennis and Jack’s love, they are forever bound by ours.

Paul Newman, 26 January 1925 / 26 September 2008

The Transition from Brokeback to the real world

Posted by LauraLedger on September 17 in The transition from Brokeback to the real world.
Quote
So how long does it generally take you to make the transition from rural Wyoming back to the real world and reality?

I don't know about you guys, but it always takes me quite a while to leave behind the Big Horn Mountains and the lovers to whom they were so sacred, and get back to reality.  If I've watched BM, or even just snippets of it, I need at least a good...I dunno...half hour, minimum, to get Ennis and Jack out of my system.  Usually much, much longer than that, though. 

To me, there's nothing worse than if I've just watched BM and am fully immersed in the world of the cowboy soulmates, and then suddenly the phone rings, or a friend visits, or some other wholly unwelcome thing occurs that swiftly pulls you back to the real world, untethering you from that far away place where the bluebirds sing and there's a whiskey spring... it sucks majorly when that happens!!!  I'm like, "Wait, give me a moment here...I'm still with Ennis and Jack at Brokeback Mountain, dammit!"

Ole Brokeback got me good.

Christmas Hearts

By:  Cynical21





Bitter cold, it is.
The long grass, almost bone white
Under a coat a frost,
Crunches under my boots
And leaches away any bit a warmth
That’s managed a keep m’ toes from freezin’.
Snow clouds in the west, getting’ thicker,
Like piles of dirty wool,
Layers in shades a gray.
Reckon fools who sing about white Christmases
Are gonna get their wish.
Don’t matter none t’ me,
Since it’s just another day.

Ain’t mattered in a long, long time.

Guess my girls ‘ll be excited;
Hope their mama and her new man done right by ‘em.
I gave ‘em what I could
But it ain’t much.
Guess they’re prob’ly used to it by now.
Looks like there ain’t been much –
Much a anything at all -
Fer me t’ give ‘r git
In a long, long time.

Reckon it’s different down in Texas.
In that big house full a fancy things,
Run by his fancy woman,
Full a toys fer his rich boy son.
He ain’t never said it, a course,
But I know it jus’ the same.
Fancy trucks, new clothes,
New saddles and name-brand boots ‘n hats.
He don’t have t’ say it;
He lives in a different world.

Christmas - just another day –
When I’ll be strugglin’ t’ take care a the horses
An’ git m’ work done,
An’ make it back home
Afore the snow gits too deep,
Back t’ my sad little place,
Full a empty spaces and old memories,
Where I can drink m’ whiskey in peace
And close m’ eyes, in hopes a dreams.

And know . . .
That he’s prob’ly drinkin’ eggnog out a silver cups,
An’ turnin’ on the strings a lights on the outside a that fancy house,
An’ tryin’ a figger out how to put together the kid’s newest toy . . .
Until the day gets older an’ quieter,
An’ he finally has a chance t’ find a lonesome spot,
T’ sit and drink his whiskey in peace
An’ close his eyes, in hopes a dreams.

Poor or rich,
Wyomin’ or Texas,
Alone or in a crowd . . .
It’s still the two of us,
Breath t’ breath an’ heart t’ heart,
Today – and every other day.

Born from Their Love... Forever Bound by Ours



 

Dear Brokies,

It saddens me to inform you that this week's Newsletter is the final issue. It is a shame to see it go and I know most will feel the same way. Please understand that it was not an easy decision and rest assured that the decision is not an indication of current forum state or a reflection of future direction. It is simply a result of lack of resources and fresh ideas to keep the forum Newsletters going and going strong. For more than two years, the Newsletter had served its purpose. Unfortunately, it is time to take a break for now but we might be back.

For all the past issues, you will find them by clicking here.

All the important forum update will be posted in the "news" box on top of the board and in the forum update thread.

Finally, please let me take this opportunity to thank many of you for your contribution and feedback to the Newsletters. For the time being, I guess I will see you around in the forum.

The miracle that brought you to me
gave me the gift of laughter in the sound of your voice
gave me the music that only your harmonica can make
gave me the light that sparkle when fire reflected from your eyes

The miracle that brought you to me
gave me the steadfast love I can count on
gave me the truest friend a man can depend on
gave me the passion for life to carry on

The miracle that brought you to me
showed me the meaning of love
showed me the meaning of life
showed me the meaning of what matters

When two hearts beat as one
When two minds think as one
When two souls dream as one
When two people fit together like two shirts,
one inside the other, two skins perfectly fitted together

When you touch me, the world stops
When you kiss me, time stands still
With your arms wrapped around me
I feel safer than in my own fortress

With your hands holding mine
I feel understood, I feel loved
The warmth of your hand warms my heart
The strength of your hand gives me strength

With your eyes on mine
The universe disappears
And only you matter
Only you exist for me

When you whisper sweet dreams in my ear
I believe every word, every dream
I follow you to the end of the rainbow
And back again if you'd only ask

All those times we shared
All those dreams we dreamt
All those talks we had
Like we had all eternity in the palm of our hands

I am thankful for every moment, each second
I am grateful for each glance, each touch
A miracle brought you into my life
A miracle made you my cowboy, and me yours

I know not why it happened, just that I am forever grateful
with you in my life, and I in yours.
You are the gift unexpected
You are the miracle in my life

For you Tamara... :ghug: <^( :^^) :c) ^f^

Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo!

Annie Proulx no longer at home on the range

The 'Brokeback Mountain' author has 'had enough' of Wyoming, her prime subject for the last decade.

Not really as bad or as sad as it sounds. Well written piece. Crusty ol' Annie is ready for a new chapter in her life and after three wonderful volumes over 10 - 15 years who could begrudge her? Good luck and best wishes ol' friend, enjoyed whut you did here mightily, won't forget it, never. I swear.

Reactions of our environment to our BBM love

Quote
Some Brokies have sometimes talked about how their families or persons who are more in touch with them,have reacted by seeing how much they love BBM.There have been some very different reactions; sometimes lack of understanding,sometimes a great comprehension-even if they don't share our "passion"-often the opinion that "it's a nice movie,but not as much as to think about it all the time",often the sensation that you're a little obsessed,even-rarely,I hope...-some jokes of not always good taste...Why don't we join here all the good,bad and "regular" reactions of our beloved persons,anecdotes,arguments or surprisingly supportive phrases we've received from them?.

It is hard to believe 3 years has zipped by so quickly.  We have shared so much with each other and all because of one masterpiece film.  Many hugs and kisses to everyone.  It is my hope that 2009 is a truly memorable year for each Brokie member and the ones soon to join!  Happy New Year everyone!

Who knew that three years after the movie aired that it would spawn off such an incredible global response that continues to be so strong?  To all the new members who have just been touched by the movie recently, we really truly understand what you are experiencing.  Some of us long to have that magical mesmerizing feeling again, some of us still do, but most importantly, the friendships developed through the years have made this forum strong, and will continue to keep the flame burning!

How many ways can I say thank you for
All the gifts I’ve found here?
People from all over the world bound by
Peace, respect and love. Three
Years of laughter, tears and sharing our hearts with each other.

How could I ever express what all of you mean to me?
Over the miles and different languages and time zones,
Love always seems to prevail.
It is, after all, the universal language.
Destiny brought me here
And you all make me want to stay.
Years from now, I will still hold all of you in my heart.
So I wish you a happy holiday and all the very best in 2009.

אני מרגישה בת מזל במיוחד שאני זוכה לחגוג את יום השנה של הפורום בפעם השלישית אתכם. שלושת השנים האלו בפורום היו מיוחדות
עבורי יותר מכפי שאוכל לתאר, וכל זה בזכות האנשים כאן
השנה האחרונה הייתה אמוציונלית מאוד עבורי, עם הרבה אושר כיוון שיכולתי לקחת חלק בשלוש פגישות של הפורום, וגם עם אבל עמוק בגלל האובדן הבלתי ניתן לתיאור של אדם היקר כל כך לי ולרבים מאתנו. אבל גם ברגעי האושר וגם ברגעי הכאב אתם הייתי שם איתי, לחלוק את הצחוק ואת הדמעות, וזה היה הדבר החשוב ביותר

אני מאחלת לכולנו עוד הרבה שנים מאושרות יחד, שנים של חברות עמוקה, של אהבה ושל קבלה כמו השלוש שהיו לנו. יום שנה שמח לכולם, וחג מולד שמח לאלו שחוגגים אותו

אוהבת את כולכם, קרן

I feel incredibly lucky that I get to celebrate the forum's anniversary for the third time with you. These three years in the forum have been special to me more than I can describe, and it's all because of the people here.
This last year has been very emotional for me, with a lot of joy since I was able to attend three brokie gatherings, and also a deep grief because of the unimaginable loss of a man who is so dear to me, and to many of us. But both in the joyful and in the painful moments you were there with me, to share the laughter and the tears, and that was the most important thing.

I wish us all many more happy years together, years of deep friendship, love and acceptance like these three ones we've had. Happy anniversary everybody, and a merry christmas to those who celebrate it.

Love you all, Keren.

Happy Third Anniversary and Happy Holidays. I wish a happy and healthy New Year to you and yours. I hope 2009 brings you lots of love, peace and the fulfillment of dreams.  Love, Michelle

Liebe Brokie Freunde,
irgendwie kann ich es nicht fassen dass schon 3 Jahre vergangen sind; und dieser Ort hier lebt und blüht und gibt uns allen immer noch eine Heimat die wir nicht erwartet hatten.
Ich wünsche uns allen eine friedliche Festtagszeit und ein gesundes und glückbringendes 2009 - zusammen hier vereint in Liebe und Freundschaft!


Dear Brokie friends,

3rd Anniversary Video

Posted by ethan on December 10

Today is exactly three years after I saw BBM in the theatre in NYC. It was a date of life changing. It prompted me to seek out others who might feel lost as I did by starting this forum. I am just grateful and proud to have this place where one can escape from the reality sometimes. Real life can be cruel with challenges but it is more bearable with your love and support and with something to look forward to.

During the past three years, people come and go. It is sad to see those who used to be active but are no longer here. Although it saddened me, it makes me even happier to have shared a part of this journey with them. No matter where the destination we are heading in our lives, it is the path we are together that counts. It is a privilege to share this journey with every one of you.

For how long --- as long as we can ride it. There is no reins on this one.

On this special date and fast approaching our 3-year anniversary of ennisjack and BBM, here is the video which I dedicate to all of you. Thanks for the past three years and I hope there will be more to come.

ennisjack.com Chronology - past, present & future

Excerpts

The Birth of ennisjack.com

I saw BBM on December 9 in New York City, the day of premier in the US. A friend of mine asked me to go and that was the first time I heard of the movie. I didn't know the short story, didn't know Annie Proulx - nothing. All I knew was Ang Lee. And yes..sorry didn't know Jake and Heath either. Nada. There I went with my friend and Bubu. I sobbed right after I left the movie theatre and BBM had stayed with me since then. Nothing prepared me for this magnitude of obsession, or fascination rather…

…I found the free board at Xsorbit and it all started from there and the board went live on December 17, 2005. I started this forum with only one thing in mind - a place where one can share freely without prejudice and judgement, one can get as much as information about BBM, and one can enjoy. A mission, if you will - a community that is supportive, informative and enjoyable…

…I often think had BBM won the best picture at the Oscar, the forum could not have lasted this long. We united and grew stronger to defend such an injustice as we ached for the suffering of Ennis and Jack. Everything happens for a reason. The reason of this forum is the BBM. When you come to think of it, it is all about BBM that connects us. BBM is the catalyst for whatever it might be inside of our hearts which manifested to our affection and love to BBM and this extended family.

I often refer this as a BBM journey. When the journey will end, I don't know. But what I do know is when I look back at the journey, I can proudly say I have a great time and have no regrets. It is one hell of a journey because of so many great people around the worlds bonded and sharing. Thanks for being a part of this journey.

BBM/ennisjack in Yahoo Time Capsule

Started by ksxks (aka Kathy) on October 25 2006

excerpts
Quote
Maybe we should put something Brokeback into the Yahoo Time Capsule?  It must be submitted by November 8.  See below.

They're calling this an "electronic anthropology" of the on-line global community.  You can put in words, picture, video, voice, etc.  The categories are Love, Anger, Fun, Sorrow, Faith, Beauty, Past, Now, Hope, You.

A very simple thing would be one of our banners (with the ennisjack "motto" on it).  Or even one of someone's collages or wallpapers with the motto on it.  I could submit it, since I'm on Yahoo email – though if anyone else is on Yahoo also and wants to, fine with me.  But we'd just need to decide what would best represent us.

Actually we made it!   Click on the banner below to visit the Yahoo Time Capsule thread.





In Memory of Heath Ledger

How to Downsize a Picture

About Posting Pictures

If you don't mind this is a reminder of our guidelines about posting pictures on the forum. 

We understand many members are big fans of Heath, Jake and others. As supportive fans, let's respect them as who they are and not manipulate their pics to fulfill our fantasy. Collages are allowed of the Brokeback Mountain characters, and of each actor individually, but not of both actors mixed together or the actors mixed with others, like ourselves. To maintain this level of respect, the forum also asks the members not to post paparazzi photos or photos that constitute a clear invasion of their privacy.

You will find all the Forum's Guidelines & Rules here.
