Someone Owes Me a Beer

Brokeback Mountain is going to careen over the $50 million mark today.

My original $90 million prediction might not be so far off after all...

When I get to LA, this spring, beer's on me.

I actually agreed with you and said it would sail north of 100 (well, not THAT far north, maybe it'll reach 110.

Even though I never bet against you, I'll cover the beer when I get to LA.

We'll pretend I bet against you. :)

Well, it just wiffed at the Golden Globes. If for some reason, it doesn't get many Oscar Nominations (especially if it misses Best Picture), I think it may die a quick death.

I don't think that will happen though.

It didn't whiff at the Golden Globes. It won Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.

Or maybe you were just making a funny.

I think Thomas got the SAG and Golden Globes confused... the SAG Awards were not kinf to BBM.

Yep. I sure do. There's usually a party in June, right?

A few weeks back I found myself BSing with a couple of rough looking dudes from Utah. After an hour listening to a bunch of trailer park tales about lying, cheating, drug-addicted girlfriends and epic booze fueled fistfights somehow Brokeback Mountain came up (Don't ask me how). I fully expected an anti-gay rant but one dude just said "I ain't gonna see that" to which the other replied "Shit. Just two people looking for love is all". I knew right then I'd lost the bet. Good feeling to lose sometimes.

Anyway, I bought the next round.
