I was looking up the box office receipts for this piece of crap Brokeback Mountain (BBM), currently hyped as the greatest endeavor of western cinema since The Ten Commandments, which despite it's age holds up quite well.

So far 26.6M.

On the opposite side of the cultural divide, opening weekend Passion of The Christ ~83.8M

BBM would have to have TEN TIMES the box office receipts it has now to top My Big Fat Greek Wedding - hee hee.

Maybe Hollywierd thinks its the best film since Bowling for Columbine, but I'm guessing it missed the demographic of the great unwashed.

Goes to show you that America is mostly streight, more or less moral, and doesn't much care for gay cowboy movies that screw with our iconic visions of the American West. Not that we're above watching some hot lesbians once in a while..... ;-)




For the last time, Brokeback Mt is about a couple of gay SHEEP HERDERS, NOT COWBOYS.

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
