Barry Manilow's Take On Brokeback Mountain

Warning - this post contains spoilers. If you want to see Brokeback Mountain and don't want to find out the ending, please skip.

Brokebacabana (At The Brokeback) by Barry Manilow

His name was Ennis
He was a Shepard
With cowboy hat and assless chaps
He should have kept it under wraps
He would merengue and do the cha-cha
And when he'd drink and fall asleep
Jack Twist tended to the sheep
Across the mountain heights
They worked the summer nights
They were young and they had each other
And had rough sex fights

Up at Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain
Those gay cowboys, they did some mounting
Up at Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain
They felt the passion as they discussed fashion
Up at Brokeback

.... they fell in love
Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain

He was the boss man
He did some firing
When he went to the mountain top
And he saw Ennis getting bopped
And when they finished, he fired them pronto
Later Jack went a bit too far
Gay bashers saw him at a bar
And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
There was blood and a single gun shot
But just who shot who?

Up at Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain
Those gay cowboys, they did some mounting
Up at Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain
They felt the passion as they discussed fashion
Up at Brokeback

.... he lost his love

His name was Ennis, he was a shepherd
But that was a long time ago, when closets hid more than clothes
Now gays have pride days, but not our Ennis
Still in the chaps he used to wear, faded feathers in his hair
He sits there so refined, and drinks himself half-blind
He lost his Jack and he lost his family
Taking it from behind!

Up at Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain
Those gay cowboys, they did some mounting
Up at Brokeback, Brokeback Mountain
They felt the passion as they discussed fashion
Up at Brokeback

.... don't fall in love
Don't fall in love

Brilliant stuff, of course. But I visit NIGP for more than Brokeback Mountain jokes. I read for Edmund Fitzgerald song parodies as well.

Who among you will step up and write the grand unified post of NIGP?

I'll even give you a start:

The legend lives on from the mortified sheep on down

Of the gay cowboys they called Jack and Ennis

Awesome parody.

For a slightly more serious of the movie and its societal implications, try K-Block.

Also check out continuing posts on the subject on December 8th and 13th.

But what about the pudding? Aren't independant films supposed to be about gay cowboys eating pudding?

Aren't all chaps, by definition, assless?

Next, they are filming a movie about two Harley Davidson bikers and their secret love for each other. It is going to be called Broke Back Because of a Motorcycle Accident.

The sequal takes place twenty years later. It's about two elderly impudent gay cowboys seeking viagra.
It's called "Brokedick mountain."

Sorry for my english, is not the best, but I say taht this is the best movie for me. I really love it. It is a part of me, almost. Love between man is harder and stronger than any other kind of relationship. Only if you have lived the experience you can see it. The traggic end of this movie hurt me a lot. This is not a gay movie, IT IS a love story. A real history, for those who have the same experience, many many mans in this world has been loved and has give all the love they have and fight and fight and feel all the pressure of the society, and that is why that kind of love growns up and "never grow old", and keep grown on and on and on thru the years.

That is my truth. Write if you feel the same way. If you dont, I respect and celebrate you think different, but there you have an advice: think twice before hurt someones feelings just because they are different, we are rejected and despised, we have enough with the to look down on us and we are just human beings that just want to be accepted and loved for what we are, just for that.

We are sons of GOD, and he celebrate our love, so let´s celebrate love!!! in any expresion without hurt anybody....

All the love in this universe is just one.....so cry you tears but remember: live your love.
