Wooohoo! Nice arms there, poppa! :-)
Stephen is a sexy daddy, the father of "The Sex", no wonder...
BritPopBaby, you promised to post "At 25" ... will you? Please? (Or couldn't you get permission?) I need to imagine an audio for these pictures. Speaking of which: Is there an audio file online somewhere of GyllenPappa giving a reading? His publisher ought to add one to her site.
nice anonymous, you can find it over at Kendra's blog 'Jake Weird'.I just finished the book - it has some beautiful, sensitive pieces in it - I especially like those about his mom and dad - terrific; the one where he talks about the miscarriage Naomi had before she had Maggie and those about Jake - not only 'At 25', but also the one where he talks about Jake auditioning for a role as a child. Very touching.He seems to be a great, sensitive man. I have to tell you I am actively resisting falling in love with a whole family..! ('Bangs head against the wall..!')
You can hear Poppa G's voice in the director's comments in the DVD of Waterland.
I will post it soon. I'd like us to have a discussion about it but I'm leaving gaps between poems cos I don't want to rip them off.
Sexy indeed! Jakey is truly his father's son.
I couldn't find them when i clicked view more?Help!
Nice Anon, You can find the "At 25" poem at IHJ or http://jake-weird.blogspot.com/Hope that helps you.
Is he wearing the same bracelet as Jake? :-) The thin one on his right wrist.
He looks so "huggable!" (sigh) You know, as I look at these pics, I'm thinkin' Maggie. I mean never having seen/met the man in person, just looking at him, I see a very strong Maggie resemblance. Doesn't mean Jake doesn't favor him. It's just that I'm seeing the Maggie thing for the first time. I'm definitely in love with the whole family. I want them to adopt me.
This one's for pops:=====================At 56Slender lines of an evolving mindA newborn poet on another continentCautious and brave while sensitive and strongMaking use of his skillsFine lines of wisdomthat I wouldn’t mind caressing (NO I WOULDN’T)InspiringEmbracing us with his wordsshakes me, surprises meOn another continent, born in some other decadeWhen he goes to sleep – I wake upto a new day, more beautiful than yesterday- I might too be 56!=====================
Katie, I'm impressed! You're quite the poet there! :-)
Awww I, too, am in love with the whole Gyllenclan! You go Pops!
Thanks, all, for pointing out "At 25" to me on different sites. (I knew I'd seen it **somewhere,** but could no longer remember where, in the proliferation of the various Web sites & Jake-related entries on blogs.) Still, I'll be happiest when all of the finest, Jake-fixated minds converge together on BritPopBaby's blog & give that poem a good, long interpretive study. Some sections of it perplex me. I can't help but feel that GyllenPappa meant it primarily as a private communication with his only son, rather than something that a casual reader would be able to understand. (I've taught poetry workshops to undergraduates and have found that they sometimes don't realize what enigmas they've constructed. They think they are being perfectly clear.)
Ok,i'll try again since i was blatantly ignored last time.On the front page it says go here for more pictures.I went there but where are they on Cantaras site?Could someone please be bothered to help.Thankyou.
so, that's where it all comes from...nice, mr. gyllenhaal!
I went there but where are they on Cantaras site?They're under "Author's Q&A". :-)
katie, awesome poem!Awww I, too, am in love with the whole Gyllenclan!I know what you mean! I'm developing quite the crush on them, too!
Found them...*THANKYOU*gummybug xxx
@cina & miffed. Thanks... and just realised that last line should be "- I might too become 56!" My English so suck.Btw, I want mooore Poppa Gyllenhaal! The Internet is kind of anorechtic when it comes to PG info. His imdb board has like 4 entries and the last is posted on April 22! And as one said, there should be a film at his or cantara's page of his NY performance.
