And Heath's friends and the heart.....what a beautiful thing to do!!!

An Article by Luke Davies, the author of Candy
Luke Davies has written an article paying tribute to Heath in the March issue of The Monthly, here's the link:
http://www.themonthly.com.au/tm/node/821
..........There was, of course, his face: intelligent, kind, beautiful. Those eyes. That mouth. That smile. His extraordinary physical agility - he was a great natural clown. And that rich, glorious voice."
Oh, the voice.. <^(
Well everything was said already but I just had to quote this from the article.
"What Jack remembered and craved in a way he could neither help nor understand was the time that distant summer on Brokeback when Ennis had come up behind him and pulled him close,the silent embrace satisfying some shared and sexless hunger."

This is an interview (video and article) of Verne Troyer recalling working with Heath on Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and how a lot of people working on the set has tattooed a heart which Heath had scribbled on a note in memory of him.  Here's the article and the link where you may see the video in which he broke down in tears:
.......................................

yb, thank you so much for sharing this article and video with us...  :\'( :\'( :\'( I cried watching it. To see Troyer crying in front of the camera like that, it's absolutely heartbreaking. I loved the fact that they had Heath's heart tattooed on their bodies. I'm a mess now.

There might just be a run on a certain scribbled heart tattoo...

He did flash it to the camera, but it's from a distance so you can't really make out the shape of the heart.

I was thinking of that too- have pondered getting a tat for a while- still trying to figure out what to get that will only be picked up on by those in the "know". And then there is the whole low pain threshold thing.  ::) But I was thinking of that heart. Glad to see I'm not the only one, though it doesn't surprise me at all.  :)

me neither... and you are right..
i always wondered about a little tatoo that only BBM people would understand.. but that's somehow difficult.. this here really is an option..

Well we all have the same thoughts, i was thinking about that too  :)..but wouldn't it be nice if it's the same heart, when i get that tat, it must be the same as the crew has...so maybe wait of a close up pic?

Hopefully one will surface- I had an idea for a BBM one and maybe I can combine them. I'll have to see if I chicken out. I think that was the sweetest and most touching thing they did in getting that tatooed and that interview with Troyer set off more tears.

I don't think there is any close up pic yet, i searched internet but couldn't find one.
Only the small pic of Verne Troyer, but it's from a distance so you can't really make out the shape of the heart.

I had the same thought. I thought about that celtic design he had around his wrist, or the maple leaf. I just played with the idea in my head. but I think if I could put my hands on that little heart design I'd go for that.

Me too, Keren!!

I've been thinking about some BBM for a long time. I was thinking about one of the most beautiful and haunting quotes of the film, you know, one of those phrases we all love. Even I thought about some of the BBM's pics.....but now, I'd go for that heart, Heath's heart. It'd be so precious if I know that out there, there are a lot of people with the same tattoo as me, loving BBM and Heath as much as me. That would make me feel I'm not alone, there is someone else feeling the same as me.

Wow, I had the same thoughts too. Scary thing is, I already, even before Heath's death, wanted to get a tattoo of a black heat on my right hand and if we could see the tattoo more visably, I would love to get it for Heath  :\'(



I am with you Baby Tammy, I was thinking of a phrase from BBM too, like "If you can't fix it, you gotta stand it" but I'm not sure and I gotta wait at least a year in half to even get a tattoo  :-\\

If I ever get a chance to get this tattoo I think I'll get it on my chest, above my heart.

 I am planning a tattoo in one of my palm. They say. lines in your palm tells the future and the past,
 I would tattoo the name of Heath in one of my palm and the tattoo itself will speak how I think of Heath.

Heartbreak mountain

http://xinkaishi.typepad.com/a_new_start/2008/02/ft-heartbreak-m.html

......................................

"The message of King Lear, and of Brokeback Mountain, is that we must all have our hearts broken. In some strange way, these profound works do not merely convey but also enact that message; they perform a homeopathic heartbreak that leaves us miraculously breathing, more deeply and richly than before.

If only Heath Ledger had not had to break our hearts again, in a room in Manhattan, not a film-set or a stage."
