aswanargent found this post about Lord and creation of the fanfic author. People, if you take things too seriously don’t go there. But if it’s not your case go, I guarantee you’ll laugh insanely. There were tears in my eyes when I finished it, comments about how major pairings on shows became corrupt and irritating after season three and the 10th commandment made me spill water over my keyboard!

maddiec24 posted about muse_secrets, a comm similar to PostSecret but there people (fans, obviously!) post characters’ secrets. Info is here, but the general idea is posting secrets form fictional characters. I wonder when somebody will post a Schillinger’s card saying in fact he always loved Beecher and couldn’t stand being replaced by Keller... *g*

I’m not sure if this was posted first by maddiec24 or desert_rifka, but there’s another place to look for icons: minimal_icons. Very gorgeous ones, I should add.

And I don’t know where I read it, but at somebody’s comments were links to this site and also to this one: if you’re into creating icons or just looking for new images to use as wallpapers those sites can give you many options to use. Ah, you can use them for free.

Brokeback Mountain: I’m sure everybody at my flist had already heard about this cowboy love movie. I’m a little skeptical about it, the true story is too slashy to Hollywood, besides I doubt Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal would want to get involved in more than kissing scenes at this point of their careers. Anyway amanuensis1 some time ago posted a link to Anne Hathaway site, where you can download the movie trailer. I did it, and although I’m still skeptical it seems it’ll be a beautiful movie.

Did you notice my lovely moodtheme? It’s an Oz one, made by talented solamentenic for Team Tergesen cause. I really loved it, Nic, you’re amazing – just like maverick4oz, who organized everything, and fanfromfla, who is taking care of money. There’s still time to purchase icons and banners, go there to read more about it.

*shakes head*. Other way round, girl, other way round! Vern wanted Chris sooooo bad - but who doesn't? *g*

And thankyou for that link to the Brokeback Mountain trailer - I can't wait to see that movie!

Maybe Vern was just too jealous, wanting to be in the same pod as BK and have nice threesomes every fucking night? *g*
(in fact I also like this idea. A lot. OMG now I'm going to hell...)

You're welcome - I liked the trailer, the landscapes are breathtaking, but I wonder if we'll see boys kissing. More than that? Don't think so!

I did some reading of message boards at IMDB and other indepth reviews of the movie, and it actually sounds like they've done well with the physical stuff - according to a few sources there's lots of kissing and TWO 'tasteful' sex scenes - sounds good to me!
And apparently, there was one kissing scene where Heath Ledger got so rough they had to stop filming because he almost broke Jake Gyllenhaal's nose!

I also read the story online last night (I *think* it was the whole story - didn't seem like a shortened version) and then compared it to a long review - the review mentioned absolutely everything that happens in the book, so it seems like a pretty faithful adaptation - YAY!

Yeah, I heard about that scene too, so let's hope it'll be a rather slashy movie, *g*
Some time ago I also read the story, I think somebody posted it (or a link to it) at TS. First I thought it was a shortened version, I printed it and it was about 20 pages. Probably that's why boys' wives (and probably other characters, like Ennis' father) were more developed for the movie. Anyway... I'm curious to see it!!

Interesting theory. Perhaps Vern never got over Lardner/Chris.
Why didn't he have him killed after Chris told Mcmanus about Operation Toby?

Exactly. And why, after all that shit that went on, did Vern try to buddy up to him in Season 6? I'm telling ya - back in Lardner, Vern fell prey to Chris's charms just like the rest of us! *g*

Just like ex-wives, Sister Pete, Beecher, us... lol

I cannot wait for the Gay Cowboy movie.

All of us, even to start posting about how _______________ and _______________ (insert you favorite actors names here, lol) would be better than Jake and Heath. ;o)

And did you notice that it's opening in San Francisco the same day it opens in L.A. and New York -- a week ahead of everyone else. I really hope they do a good job with this film; I'll have a better idea once I see how it's rated and which theaters in L.A. book it.
Sep. 4th, 2005 01:40 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you liked it. Thanks for buying it!
Sep. 4th, 2005 05:55 pm (UTC)
I loved this moodtheme, Nic!!

I'm skeptical too. In this day and age, in the Shrub's country?
And I've read they give greater roles in the film to the guy's wives.
They had small parts in the book.
If this was a HBO film I would be more hopeful. Without HBO there wouldn't have been OZ and Six Feet Under.

At least the mountain scenery is great.

Had you read the story? Some time ago somebody posted it, or a link to it, I'm not sure, at TS. It's quite short, maybe that's why they had to develop more other characters, such as boys' wives, and probably Ennis' father, I remember he was mentioned as someone homophobic who had already killed a gay man (but I can be wrong, I'd read it last year). Anyway I'm curious to watch this movie, let's hope it's at least a little slashy!
Sep. 5th, 2005 06:29 pm (UTC)
I read the book.
It seems from the trailer that they kept the shirt scene at the end. That's a very good scene.
Sep. 5th, 2005 06:46 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I remember that scene and found it touching that they kept it.
Sep. 5th, 2005 06:46 pm (UTC)
Probably it's intended to make people cry, *g*
