NEWS ROUND UP

RUBRIC RODEO WINNER
Again it was very close so I think we'll have a couple of runners up:
"Toilets? That way." anon
"Atticus, you better get right back to that trailer and babysit Boo like I told you to!" Lynn
And the winner is...gin!
"After his stunning rendition of "Danke Shein", a la Ferris Bueller, Jake takes a moment to give some love to his adoring crowd."
gin, you'll just have to copy and save that genuine autograph because I er, misplaced the original. Sorry.

JAKE DINES WITH JEN
According to THIS article Jake enjoyed a evening meal with Jen and four other friends at Babbo Ristorante in Manhattan's West Village on 24th May.
Thanks to nothingreallymatters for this news!

BRITPOPBABY LEAVES UNIVERSITY
Yeah, I know. It's big news for us all but hopefully, with time, we'll be available to move on and accept that we're adults now and we have to get some sort of career.

WE GOT SMACKED
Jake Watch got reviewed over at italk2much. I submitted it about two months ago to see what would happen and 'twas not good. Here is what the reviewer Charred had to say:
I understand that Mr. Gyllenhall is an attractive young man who’s very much in the public eye, and I understand that people can get...obsessive in their emotional attachments.
I also understand that this blog is meant to have a a tongue-in-cheek, “we’re just pretending to be this crazy” attitude about it, but...why?
Entertainment?
Sorry, no, that’s not going to cut it. Not with me, anyway.
I don’t care WHAT actor/actress/personality this kind of blog is about.
I just couldn’t care less.

We got one smack though which ain't too bad and as ripping aparts go, we got off quite light. The site has an honesty is the best policy, er, policy.

Wonderful to be runner-up in the contest. Thanks! Those people who've decided they can review blogs are pretentious and have no sense of humor. Remember that Einstein said something like, "Great spirts will always encounter opposition from mediocore minds."

Jen's a bit old, isn't she? Although they would make such a beautiful couple that just seeing them together makes my computer screen almost combust. It wasn't so bad in The Good Girl - she was going for the dowdy look, but when she's looking like her beautiful self...

And also, hope you find a good job, lol.

And DAMN, we got smacked. Hehehe.

squallcloud said...

This blog is the kick. Anyone who can't see that, well fuck 'em. Why do people feel the need to review everything any damn way? It's a blog. You either are interested in the subject or your not. There is very little objectivity.

squallcloud said...

I don't think anything is going on with Jen and him but I wouldn't be mad. She's hot and seems sweet.

gin said...

Oooh...fakey Jakey autograph...thanks! :) that actually is a highlight in my day, crazily/sadly enough. I've been so cranky. Now I can look at Jake's face and be happy again, lol.
Anyway, whatever, I love this blog...screw the naysayers!!
I love Jen Aniston, too. I might not mind if she hooked up with Jake. You know, cuz he always consults me on these things. ;)

cina said...

Screw the people at italk2much! We don't need their approval anyway. We're enjoying ourselves over here and that's all that matters really.
I couldn't care less if they find this place boring.

Anonymous said...

Jen and Jake? That would be great! I don't mind her being lder... but seriously I think they are just friends. As for the review... we love yur blog! Who cares about review what counts is how many people read it and enjoy it!

claire said...

oh i hate people who just don't get the humour of this blog - its meant to t.a.k.e t.h.e p.i.s.s (sorry, imagine me saying that in a really patronising manner). We know britpopbaby loves the jake but she's also mocking those who obsess over such perfection ie us, and we love it!!

miffed67 said...

cute couple but Jen is a little too old for him

She HAS said she'd like to be his Mrs. Robinson, tho. I say go for it! She's single...he's single...what's the prob?

italk2much talks too damn much. What the hell do they know? Asshats.

britpopbaby said...

I submitted it for review to be fair - I only got what I asked for. I might go ask why they gave us one smack - maybe it was the POO background colour!

Bruinsmama said...

Fuck them in the eye, I love this site.
And who is "pretending" to be this crazy????

anotherbrit said...

that italk2much site is complete and utter sh*te. Its exactly the sort of sneering up its own arse pretentious blog that I hate - where all the inadequates with low self esteem but big egos come together to reverberate their own snide bitchiness and pat each other on the back for it. All they know how to be is negative.

yetanotherbrit said...

Good luck with your career choice!

kokodee said...

Aaw, britpop! Congratulations and er...choose wisely!

Anonymous said...

Actually, Jen said she 'was' his Mrs. Robinson...and she was referring to their roles in "The Good Girl".

I don't believe for a minute that they're a couple...but she's 37...that isn't exactly 'old'.

Hedda Parsons said...

I thought Jen was 35? If she's old, then i'm ancient. I think that they are just friends, but i wouldn't mind if they did hook up!

Anonymous said...

Man, that article about Jake and Jenn drives me crazy. When they describe the dinner itself and the interaction between them, it couldn't be more clear that these two are JUST friends. So why feel the need to pretend there was anything romantic or threatening to Vince in it. The description speaks for itself. I HATE how two actors can't just be friends without people assuming they could be or should be dating.

zoo said...

BPB, I wave two fat fingers in the general direction of Charred on your behalf.

Congratulations on finishing uni, sistah.

I would like Jen and Jake to have a (BRIEF) heated affair cos if anything can up her street cred after the Brangelina humiliathon this can.

Twisted Fate said...

on eonline there's a video of oscar nominees natalie and jake leaving some resturant, where he apparently gave a bunch of tulips.

Congrats btw britpopbaby,To celebrate your future career move i take it your first draft is due for publishing then? Re: Stalking 101

Agnes said...

A review is just a review.... we love this site and thats whats matter. Keep up the good work :)

Welcome to the between school-work land. Sometimes is hard to understand that school is over but you get used to it... I think.... I hope... okay I haven't get used to it yet but I'm working on it

Anonymous said...

I just saw on Entertainment Tonight that Natalie Portman and Jake are a new couple. They were spotted having lunch together and coming out with huge smiles on their faces....and Natalie had a bouquet of flowers... dammit but I like Natalie. What do you think BritPopBaby?

miffed67 said...

Actually, Jen said she 'was' his Mrs. Robinson...and she was referring to their roles in "The Good Girl".

Actually, I have also heard her say she'd like to be....referring to RL.

miffed67 said...

I could go for that. I think Jake should, too!

gin said...

Has Natalie Portman or Jake confirmed they're a couple? That would be interesting. Her birthday is soon, I think. Maybe he was just giving her an early Happy B'day.
(Meanwhile, gin needs a hobby. Gin shouldn't even be able to estimate when Natalie Portman's b'day is.)

Anonymous said...

I doubt that Jake and Natalie are a couple. The only "proof" the media have is that they came out of the restaurant smiling and she was holding flowers. They've been friends for a long time and they don't see each other often, why can't the media just allow him to hang out with friends without trying to hook him up with everyone?

squallcloud said...

Yah I'm tired of the media acting like a bunch of 'tards alerting the town cryer whenever Jake is seen with a woman. Just calm the fuck down and wait like everybody else!

Katie of Sweden said...

BPB, congrats for the exam.

That review of JW was FUN. Cause it shows that they¨ve got no humour whatsoever.. And all publicity is good publicity they say so congrats to that too!

Katie of Sweden said...

Just calm the fuck down and wait like everybody else!

:) Yeah...we're all waiting. I know myself how it is to be single and everybody around you are wondering how it "goes". Honestly, I don't know any more irritating situation than that!

cina said...

^^ That makes two of us. So annoying. And seriously - is it SO hard for people to understand that you actually can be happy AND single? Of course I want to find the man of my dreams, but I don't need one in order to be happy. And I think Jake is perfectly happy with himself too. It IS possible you know.

anotherbrit said...

Btw britpop, I hope you are not going to allow your post-grad career to interfere with your Jake Watch obligations ;-)

britpopbaby said...

I'm officially on holiday until my bank account runs dry which should take about a week.

Jake and Natalie? She did win our 'Pick a GF' project and they seem well suited. I guess we'll have to wait it out. Night vision goggles at the ready, stalkers!

Ivy said...

Jake could do worse than Jen, because with age comes experience. I also think he and Natalie Portman would made one hell of a cute couple. As much as I wish he would turn his attention to a 26-year-old non-famous bespectacled British brunette, I'm sure that when/if Jake finally takes the plunge it'll be with a fantabulous lady that we'll initially try to find fault with but end up admitting that we really like.

britpopbaby said...

Jake should definately try some British filly!

Anneka said...

Sorry about the semi-bad review britpopbaby. But I agree with the sentiments of bruinsmama above - "fuck them in the eye".
And then in the other eye, just to even things up.

Anonymous said...

anneka - LOL!!! i agree!

and i miss sock watch...! jake's socks seem so important to my daily life. how can anyone diss that? (and again agreeing with bruinsmama and anneka!)

rei said...

That review- were not just some imatture obsessive freaks you stinky ass poo poo head!!!!

britpopbaby said...

I can't do nay more Sock Watch until Jake wears some different socks. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for novelty frog socks!

Nothing Really Matters said...

I like the new look, you have a new banner aswell at the top very snazzy.

britpopbaby said...

Look what some dude wrote at italk2much:
"If you’re going to have a celebrocentric stalkery blog, it might as well be as good as this one."
Now that was the kinda review I was hoping for!
