JAKE WATCH'S MOST RANDOM POST EVER: MARK II

First off, I'd like to thank my reseacher (nrm) for finding the following articles:
Gyllenhaal uses brother for free therapy - short but interesting.
A Manic Maggie - sweet little Maggie interview. Still no news on that baby name but you're all so gonna lose out because it's totally going to be called Susie.

Thanks to Rachel, for sending me the Esquire scan. I didn't pay this list must attention when it first came round because lists and me don't mix but now I spot that jake was No. 2 last year! What happened in the past twelve months that could have plummeted him to No.4...oh yeah, that orange lycra...ah, lest we forget.

And finally, my thanks to Cantara and Stephen 'Pops' Gyllenhaal for letting me have my very own copy of Claptrap. I mentioned it ages ago, but PophecyGirl reminded me that I never posted the pic:

Aww, I was just wondering when you were going to post that scan! That's really sweet! :-)

"The man can pull off a tux better than George Clooney"

Damn right he can.

nice anonymous said...

I would indeed like to see Jake pulling off his tux.

And dropping it to the floor.

That was what was so nice about film awards season last year. Jake kept showing up on the red carpets in all his gorgeousness.

There'll be none of that this year, will there? [Sigh.]

Unless he's a presenter, because he won some things last year? [Perks up a little.]

How cool is youur book from Stephen Brits! Well done dear i do recall you saying about it.

JoyceDavenport said...

In other shocking list news the Guardian newspaper list the 15 websites that changed the word and Jake Watch is not listed.

Read about it here

This is a shocking ommission and if it doesn't print an immediate apology and correction it may be taking a trip up Brokeback with the Benz

Anna said...

That's a really sweet note from Gyllendaddy, britpop. You lucky girl. I'm not jealous at all. Nope. Not. At. All.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Cina,
I'm with you.
Awww
That's a warm inscription Brit.

Prophecy Girl said...

"My britpopbaby?" Damn, brits! I'll say it...I'm jealous. ;) Very sweet. Also sweet is that pic of Jake and his endearing description. I second Cina. Damn straight Jake could best Clooney in a tux competition!

Anna said...

Forgot to say...

Don't you just love how cocky Jake looks in that picture? It's like he's already read the article and his reaction to it is "I know...".

Kendra said...

I'm so proud of you, Susie, I'm not a easy impressionable person, but after seeing your book dedicatory, you've made my day, plus that giving me that image of Maggie sipping an orange juice, how delicious this combination is :)

JoyceDavenport said...

'My Britpopbaby' -knows how to make a girl feel wanted doesn't he?
Actually I have to confess looking at Stephen's picture on the back of Claptrap I am beggining to develop quite a crush on him. He is much more my age than Jake.

phoebe said...

Awww, sweet is the word! And for the record, yes I'm jealous too. :-)

nice anonymous said...

Indeed, that's a wonderful inscription. Gyllenpappa clearly put some effort into making it individual & personalized. Also, I like his near-monogram of a signature. (How does Jake sign autographs? Any similarity between their signatures?)

Anonymous said...

^^
same last name, both sought after

JoyceDavenport said...

^^^Nice anon you read my mind. I noticed the similarity but couldn't find a good link to a Jake signature. I did get a really good laugh googling 'Jake' and 'signature' tho'.
See here

Anonymous said...

that thing is so old it has Martha Washington as one of the signers

nice anonymous said...

If eBay doesn't have some Jake signatures on it, for comparison, I'll be surprised.

Anna said...

LOL, Joyce!

only1annabel said...

Aww Brits your practically a member of the family you lucky bugger!! I bet your on their christmas card list now!

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Aww, Brits getting some Gyllenhaal lovin. Can't say I'm not jealous. And Joyce, that petition was hilarious. Although I'm not sure I'd like to see HER side of it...

Anonymous said...

I didn't know George Clooney pulled Jake's tux off.When was this?
Mmm,hands off Georgie.
Jake is ours ok,ours.

kokodee said...

Congratulations BPB!!!

And joyce, LMAO!!

Katie said...

Great message from pops there, Brit!

What I noticed immediately is that I have Jake's autograph and it's pretty much identical to his dad's!! Mind you, I've seen another autograph of Jake's which is completely different and more pointy instead of curvy if you see what I mean....

Not making any sense, must be the Gyllentastic cocktail I'm supping.

britpopbaby said...

I didn't know George Clooney pulled Jake's tux off.

Don't be saying such things! My mind is smutty enough as it is.

And yeah, I wub my book and special message. It makes me all warm.

Anonymous said...

The Bearded Lady said...

There's

"Helen of Troy"

"Joan of Arc"

"Lady of Godiva"

"Queen of Sheba"

and last but not least,

"Susanne of Watch"

SquallCloud said...

Susie is a very cute name indeed! Hee. Okay that inscription is amazing and I love that description of Jake. Clooney pulling off Jakes tux lol! and oooo ahhhh!

Plus that link to the plea for a KD/JG sextape is hilarious!

britpopbaby said...

I forgot that it had my real name on it. Damn! My identity is foiled.

And yep, TBL, in ancient Hebrew it means 'watching woman'.

my britpopbaby
Sigh. What a beautiful man.

Muffin said...

Poppa G is most definitely squee worthy. It doesn't take a genius to see where the young 'uns natural charm comes from.


And the Esquire blurb was spot on -he has that fabulously rumpled look mastered but he does look like he was born to wear atux.

claire said...

britters, that is fantastic, the signed book that is - well done! World domination is nigh!

msdonniedarko said...

that is a wonderful autograph you have bpb!!

The Sarsgaals said...

Ah! Stephen's too cute. He's such a great, nice, charming man. We have signed books too but he didn't say were his britpopbaby (on second thought, why would he?). He just called us by our names--which, to hear him say your name is really, a truly lovely experience. HAH enjoy that book, bpb!

smurfette said...

haha- BP your secret identity is revealed?! not to worry, we jake watch agents each have a stack of alternate passports ready for such emergencies :)

p.s. susie is a cute name, though you will always be britpop to us :)

Anonymous said...

The Maggie interview is wonderful.

I've been told (by Anneka) that Susie is a cat's name. I'd almost forgotten it was my name, I'm so used to seeing 'brits'.

Katie of Sweden said...

That's really really cool bpb (the signed book).
