Larry & The World

Anchor Name larrysworld

In scrolling down, you will find two other posts about Brokeback Mountain and Larry H. Miller; Miller’s Goal & Larry H. miller pulled Brokeback.... I guess that I just didn’t realize the scale of this action, but apparently it’s gained worldwide attention. I thought that most of the buzz was just confined to Utah, but I’m assuming that when the Newsweek article says “Even in predominantly Mormon Utah, where one theater owner cancelled its scheduled showings” (4th paragraph down), it is referring to Larry H. Miller. According to the Salt Lake Metro, “Media outlets in China, the U.K. and Australia carried the story”.

Another headline from the said “Megaplex 17 Also Pulls Transamerica”, which is about a “a pre-operative male-to-female transsexual”. This is the first time I’ve even heard about this movie, so maybe I’m just out of the loop….again. I wonder if this will also cause a big stir in the blogosphere. Maybe we'll hear more about Larry Miller. Keep your eyes open!

Yes this has been a very big deal and even made it to Jay Leno, in fact one night Jay's entire monologue was about Brokeback and Utah.
