Skip to comments.(Vanity) Brokeback Mountain, a Curious Attendance Story
Posted on 01/06/2006 3:31:19 PM PST by Balding_Eagle
Did anyone else hear this on the Michael Medved talk radio today?
A man called in, near the end of the hour. He said he had been taken his kids to the theater, and the kids movie they were waiting to see had a very long line. Brokeback Mountain was also showing at that theater. He said he sat near the ticket booth for 35 minutes, as his kids waited in line to buy tickets for their movie.
During that 35 minutes he never heard one person buy a ticket for Brokeback Mountain. However, during that 35 minutes, the SOLD OUT sign came on for Brokeback. Out of curiosity, he went in to the Brokeback theater, and only saw 4 people in there. The theater manager refused to comment when the man questioned him.
Is this how all those theaters are getting such high attendance for Brokeback? Imaginary theater goers?
Perhaps other theater goers can investigate for themselves this weekend.
I can only vouch for the fact that this man called in a related the story as I presented it here, not if its true. Callers can make up stories too. It peaked my interest though.
I don't plan to see it, but it seems like a gay remake of Same Time Next Year.
Homosexuals will embrace anything, no matter the quality, as long as it portrays gay characters and gay situations in a positive light.
They're SHEEPHERDERS. NOT cowboys!
In the meantime, "Narnia" returned to the number one spot last weekend.
okay, I just have to know--where did you get all these pictures of old homo lust books???
And no vanity on the experience??
I miss your postings, but am pleased to see you still here.
Reminds me of a very old and corny joke...
Did you hear that Elton John's new blushing bride is worried about contracting botulism?G-R-O-A-N-N-N...
Yes, you see... ahem... he heard that you can get it from old meat in a can.
Oh... sorry, I thought you said butt-u-lism...
Oh, never mind.
Gives new meaning to the term "cowpoke."
I'll bet you it's got to gross $30 million to make any money; partciularly if they're advertising it heavily. But what do I know about the movie business? Nothing.
I'd recommend it.
I wouldn't want to see what was going on in that theatre.
My observations would have been relatively mundane - what is very clear to me is the economic growth that is going on in the United States. The American economy is booming. The obvious sign of this boom may come as a surprise - traffic. Even in the suburbs I was visiting, the traffic, particularly to and from shopping centres was horrific. It did not matter if it was a weekday or weekend, but the amount of people out on the roads with their cars going shopping had increased visibly since the last time I'd been there.
This indicates confidence, this indicates money to spend, this indicates economic activity near to bursting at the seams.
You are a bit green here to be posting rules. Be quiet.
Surfed many a day listening to Dale...
Homo, Homo on the Range
Where the queers and the other dopes play
They watch their sheep herds
And behave just like Nerds
And the gerbils have all run a-waaaaayyyy!!!!!!!
Because it showed how he straightened himself out. IMO it could have been better if they highlighted more of what he did after he straightened himself out. It showed how coming from nothing you could make something of yourself and overcome drinking and drugs.
