QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Okay, quote of the week is slightly different this week, basically because I've reached the bottom of my bag of amazing Jake quotes...ooo, look at what I just learnt - one should use quote exclusively as a verb and use quotation as a noun. Thanks Google toolbar thingy.

Yeah, anyway, can you guess what this quote directly from Jake's mouth is all about:
"That's awesome! Shameless promotion!"

The winner wins my potato gnocchi which I will send to them in an envelope. A soggy envelope.

Me! Me!
It is to do with 'Sex with Jake Gyllenhaal', which sadly was a fringe theatre play and not my claim.

kokodee said...

I'm not to fond of potatoes, perhaps you can send me the US version of Marie Claire as my reward. With Maggie on the cover? Friggin' UK edition has got Paris 'I'm not really a bimbo' Hilton as its cover.

Prophecy Girl said...

Dammit, Kokodee's right. Way to be on top of things! I was going to say Jake Watch t-shirts, an equally viable answer, I'd say.

britpopbaby said...

Damn it, kokodee!

muffin said...

Oh cool....glad someone came up with the answer!

Anneka's Alias said...

Thanks Kokodee. Now I haven't got to rack my brain coming up with something clever and amusing to disguise me not knowing the answer. I owe you a banana walnut muffin.

cina said...

DAMN!! Why didn't I see this sooner?! I too knew it was his comment on the "Sex with Jake Gyllenhaal" play. Bummer. LOL

kokodee said...

I owe you a banana walnut muffin.
Muffins?? Bloody muffins?
No, anneka I demand a creamed cherry top as my reward. Besides I hear that you don't bake that well.

Damn it, kokodee!
Hehe, sorry to crash the party so early. Perhaps we can start a maggie related post in the intervening jake-drought. Anyone managed to read her Marie claire interview yet?

britpopbaby said...

Yep, it was on one of her fan sites - the most interesting bits have already been pulled out and used elsewhere - like the wedding quote and that other thing we saw that one time.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Paris...HAHAHAHA!!!

sorry.
Yes I'm afraid I can....
OH SHit Kokodee beat me to it! :(

Ok the movie (Bubble Boy) which recently aired on TV in the US.
He also said "That's awesome"
in regards to what?...see how closely you folks pay attention...

smurfette said...

kokodee, you never cease to amaze me. i recognized this quote too, but couldn't have immediately placed it like you.

hey, britpop, you should do more of these guess-the-context quotes-- it's fun!

smurfette said...

^^ dog poo!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Yes your correct!

(and you win nothing but my admiration!)

smurfette said...

haha, thanks. he may say "this is awesome" more than once tho... i'll have to rewatch.

regarding recent maggie quotes, seems the best parts of the letterman interview have also been used everywhere as well(thanks, google news alerts)-- the parts about jake feeding her tiramisu and peter walking into the wrong woman at the ob-gyn are all over the news! haha, i love her, she was so cute and funny.

Anonymous said...

Was there really a play called Sex With Jake Gyllenhaal ?????

Simon Agent 002 said...

That was the title...I don't know anything more about it...or if it's still playing in NY.

Playbill - serving theatre since 1884? On the internet?

Anneka's Alias said...

"Besides I hear that you don't bake that well."

WTF!! Who's been spreading lies about my baking abilities? You lying little mutha-humper, whoever you are! My Baileys Chocolate cheesecake is f***ing legendary.

cina said...

Baileys Chocolate cheesecake!? OMG that sounds DELICIOUS!!!

Agnes said...

My Baileys Chocolate cheesecake God damn that sounds really good.

Anonymous said...

yes that playbill ;)

Nothing Really Matters said...

Anneka i want some Baileys Chocolate cheesecake.

britpopbaby said...

You never made me cheesecake, bitch. Three years we lived together in a slightly lesbian way and you didn't cook for me once!!! How many times did I cook for you, eh? Yeah, twice, baby! Maybe more if you count cup-a-soup.

kokodee said...

Oh dear! looks like the cosy little partnership is in trouble. Quick! send in the marriage counselors.

In the meantime, I'll help myself to one of your 'legendary' cheesecakes...

Simon Agent 002 said...

Geez, bring out the Cheesecake and it gets ugly.

muffin said...

Lesbian food fight!!!!!!! Excellent.....

msdonniedarko said...

i havent been on here in awhile!! the new banner kicks ass!! good job bpb

Speaking of Maggie:

http://fametastic.co.uk/archive/20060823/2274/maggie-gyllenhaal-not-sexy-enough-criticism-is-hard-to-hear/

Ouch. Apparently she used to be told all the time that she wasn't good looking enough to be an actress. (Which is not true!) They used a great photo of her for this article, though, so I guess she's having the last laugh.

Anneka's Alias said...

"You never made me cheesecake, bitch. Three years we lived together in a slightly lesbian way and you didn't cook for me once!!!"

What about the sixteen cups of tea a day I made you? Including the ones I made the day after your birthday when you spent most of the night ass-up in a bush and couldn't move the next day, or work out why you couldn't move!

And I never made Baileys chocolate cheesecake as a student because Baileys costs more than Lambrini.

Anneka's Alias said...

And I'll bring a cheesecake to the awesomely bitchin' par-tay we're gonna have on Jake Watch's First Anniversary.

cina said...

Maggie not good looking enough to be an actress? That's BULL! She's such a classy and gorgeous woman.

britpopbaby said...

And whose fault was it that I ended ass up in a bush because SOMEONE didn't CATCH ME.

nice anonymous said...

Anneka needs to devise her own cheesecake recipe, and she should christen it: "Sex With Jake Gyllenhaal."

Sort of like that dessert served in restaurants called "Death by Chocolate."

I would expect to react to swallowing a forkful of this cheesecake in much the same manner as Meg Ryan in the delicatessen scene in "When Harry Met Sally."

"I'll have what she's having."

I think I found the Jake Watch motto:

"The first thing somebody should know about Boas, or any snake, is that they generally take a lot of your trust and loving care before they warm up to you."

quote -"Beginner to Intermediate Caresheet for Red-Tail Boas"

Sarah G! said...

Here, I just found this Jake Quote in one of my little brother's magazines. Shocking, really, the amount of people Jake amazes every day.
Nick Mag: Did you have any pets when you were a kid?
Jake: We had two poodles. They were all scraggly and dirty. We also had two hamsters and one ate the other.
I'm assuming the hamster did this out of jealousy because she wanted ALL of Jake's attention. Don't blame her, really...

The Bearded Lady said...

Let's play "Jeopardy!"

This is a direct quote:

"They have anal spurs, a pair of claws on each side of the cloaca which are vestiges of legs."

What variety of snake am I?

Nrm,Pussy,Agnes,Prophecy Girl and Simon 002 are disqualified on the grounds they may have already seen the answer. (sorry dears)

Diana Rigg said...

Could it be a Western Hooknose Snake? (Gyalopion canum)

you did say spurs...

Anonymous said...

lol sarah g,that is funny.what mag does your little brother find this in,please?

The Bearded Lady said...

Diana?
Oh that's a lovely name dear,
the secretary that ran off with my father when I was eight years old had that very same name.
But I digress,as for your astute answer the (Gyalopion canum) oh it's an excellent choice.
It's not a "western" spur that I'm thinking of (sorry honey).
How can I put this to you delicately?
If Miss Bearded Lady was ever afflicted with such spurs...
she'd bolt from her divan
and run to her car...
Careening down the roadway weaving past other motorists on the left and the right ...like a mad woman.
One hand on the steering wheel,the other using my thumb to dial my doctor on the blackberry...typing S.O.S.
Pressing my bosom against the horn button, sending a warning siren to all who may encounter my path...

Diana thanks,
for playing.
Keep your nose to the grindstone...I think it's just a matter of time before crack this one wide open.
TBL

Diana Rigg said...

Could it be the (charina bottae) the Rubber Boa?

such a creepy looking creature.

Kendra said...

I see, Kokoee, not only you anticipated in the Tobey comparisons series in Jake Weird, you're in the Watch Avantgarde, too!

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh Honey no, don't post snake pictures at this time of night, please dear!
As it is now, Miss Bearded Lady will have to sleep with the light on and her cane clutched in her hand.
I believe you are very close with this guess.
I can't quite put my fingers on it with certainty, but I will consult The Herpetologists' League and let them make the final call.

The suborder Serpentes and the family Boidae are correct.
But I did have a particular Boidae, which I was thinking of.
Your (charina bottae) the Rubber Boa may well fit the qualities of the following clues.

"They have anal spurs, a pair of claws on each side of the cloaca which are vestiges of legs."

So although this is not the boa I had in mind, how can I deny you victory with different snake?, one who shares anal spurs, a pair of claws on each side of the cloaca which are vestiges of legs?
It just wouldn't be sporting now would it?
Unfortunately, there are no Herpetologists on call this time of night...except in China where it's currently daytime.
Miss Bearded Lady's chinese is very rusty.
So my advice to you dear is to hold on to your (charina bottae),try to get some sleep, and we'll see in the morning. ok? sweetie?

Sweet Dreams, TBL

From the Sexton website in the interact section (it's a sighting of Jake at the concert in MV which he reportedly was at rather than showing up at that charity benefit):

"Well what a show it was! I had the opportunity to work the merch. table and had the best time ever! There are not too many concerts you go to and have everyone in a great mood. That is what I love about Martin's concerts, is that you know your going to have a great time and be able to relax and stay in the best mood possible. The rumor is true, Jake Gyllenhall was there and we did sell him a copy of live wide open. He also stole my girlfriends heart who was working the table with me!! She is still talking about how she gave him a hug and a kiss! He is a very nice guy and was so taken back on Marty's tallent. He was saying that he has never heard such amazing music out of one person. He is quite the fan! Anyways, the show was amazing and for those that were there you know what i am talking about. It was a great place with great people and Music! I would like to say thank you for the opportunity and for the amazing time that we both had. Also, thank you to Jake G. for steeling my girlfriend away, haha.

Thanks again and look forward to seeing Marty (hopefully) soon!

Keep Jammin Martin! we love ya!"

JoyceDavenport said...

Brits and Anneka PUT. THE. CHEESECAKE. DOWN.-now back away from each other slowly and breathe.
That's better. It's a long time since I did divorce and I have no idea how you dissolve a civil partnership- and I don't actually want to find out.

cina said...

Going to a Marty Sexton concert sounds a lot more fun to me. Can't blame you Jake. ;-)

penny lane said...

Thanks Anon 2.20 a.m. for posting that nice article from the Sexton website. Must admit I have never heard of the guy, so I will have to check him out!

Yeah, what a scare headline. You really do have to laugh. "Jake Gyllenhaal Hates Children." It's so much like what was written by some bloggers about Maggie in a different context, about a similarly minor incident: "Maggie Gyllenhaal Hates America." As for me, I take the word "hate" a lot more seriously than these writers do, so I'm making a face at such headlines. Are these people trying to push Jake to make a public apology? Again, I am amazed at the power wielded by just a few disgruntled people, if they post in enough Internet venues. (I acknowledge, though, that this can be a force for good -- like the unhappy consumers who post on the Web pushing for easier cancellation of AOL & or showing a repairman napping on the job in a video cam.)

amerita said...

7:29 The people who hate children are those who go to charity events in favor of privileged children shelling out $$$ ONLY to see the celebs that appear at the event but would otherwise NOT give a F**K about underprivileges children. I find that 'slightly' disgusting. They have NO idea WHATSOEVER WHY Jake did not show up and WHEN Jake cancelled the appearance. Sure it was not at the last minute, since they managed to find a pretty decent replacement who sure was not like he happened to walk down the street 2 minutes earlier.

Diana Rigg said...

Pussy?..are you around? Pussy?....here Pussy Pussy Pussy...

Pussy have you seen TBL?

She was suppose to help me with my (charina bottae) or "Rubber Boa".

He's awake now and slithering about ,he looks agitated...

I think he's a he? or is he a she?....how do you tell?

Damn, TBL WAKE UP!
....it's licking it's lips I think he's hungry....

Can I feed it potato chips?

Shit, I knew I should have gone shopping yesterday....

Agnes said...

@Diana: LOL!!!!!

Diana Rigg said...

Agnes, This is not funny!

He's locked in my bathroom now, after a rather intense wrestling match...
He was wrapped around my throat in a final death squeeze.
When with my failing hand behind me, I grabbed a aerosol can....from the vanity.
Thank the Lord! for Spring-Air Strawberry fresh Scent Extra Strength Bath.
I sprayed him in the face and he finally loosen his grip.
But now I'm afraid to use my loo.
I don't know for sure what is going on in there now.
When I put my ear to the door I hear hissing...and there was some crashing noises a half hour ago...he may have eaten my panty hose ... Damn!
I have to bother my neighbor, to relieve myself...this situation can't hold forever.
TBL!!! Where are YOU!!!

Anon ~ lol sarah g,that is funny.what mag does your little brother find this in,please?



Nickelodeon magazine, actually. I was cutting it up to make my friends b-day card, and when i found a pic of jake i HAD to put it in

Anonymous said...

Thanks,nice anonymous and amerita. It seems like some of these pple are acting like disaffected lovers. And Jake's their target. Not too rational. They seem so filled with anger as if they are seeking revenge or something. Read in IHJ about some loon who has actually joined the paps hanging around outside Chris' apartment waiting for him.Jake to emerge, even tho they know he's probably not there. Poor Chris. And he's not even a public figure! Then there's one who travelled out to the set of Zodiac at 6AM and caught Jake ...with his dog LOL! I don't blame poor Jake. Stay on MV and relax, go to concerts, have fun and be yourself. Cause your reality is pretty crazy!

amerita said...

7:17 Not to mention the gal on DC who had her students (uh?) prepare and send a gift FOR JAKE and then they (or she?) all got heartbroken because he did not respond to thank them, he might not even know they send him a present, his people probably do not give him these things coming from fans! Plus, what teacher would have her students prepare a gift for a celebrity? Then she goes on about not idolizing him anymore but that apparently does not sop her from posting incessantly about him. Pleeeeaze!

With celebs, especially film stars, outside services are often hired to handle fanmail instead of thru and agent's or manager's office staff which is usually pretty slim. When someone's popularity rises unexpectedly, the process that's in place is not adequate to the needs. Things can get 'lost' or delayed during the transition to a special service.If you are sending something special, like a gift from a group of students, you call ahead to alert the agent/manager's office and ask for correct address and procedure. Tell them that you will appreciate an acknowledgement for the students and ask if they can anticipate the timeframe for such an acknowledgement. They are usually pretty cooperative. And honestly, waiting 6 to 8 months for a response is pretty typical. Pouncing on Jake for something they know nothing about really is ridiculous. They are acting like it's some kind of personal snub. DUH!!! How can they turn on someone who's given us so much?

nice anonymous said...

They'll get over it eventually, I'm sure. The Internet is very addictive, particularly message boards & blogs where the chance of being responded to and entering into a dialog reinforces the attachment. (Guilty! I'm not exempting myself.) The forums will be back to normal within a week, particularly if reading them & posting on them has become embedded in the various users' daily routines.

I do want to speak up in defense of the people on the Dave Cullen forum, who, in my experience, are a very nice group. I'm no longer posting there, but I had good experiences on that board & we engaged in some good discussions about the book & movie & about gender issues in general. I mean, those on the Eyelashes thread are pretty much like those regularly posting here, in many ways -- mostly talking about each other, with an occasional photo of Jake thrown in, to liven up the conversation after it strays too far afield. And they're entitled to their feelings of disappointment or their obsessional fixation, as much as anyone here or on any other Jake-related board or blog.

No, what I object to, emphatically, is a blog writer who doesn't know a particular person or his feelings or personal schedule writing a headline like: "Jake Gyllenhaal Hates Children." That's way off. A better headline would be: "I Am Personally Disappointed in Jake Gyllenhaal Because He Hasn't Lived Up to My Imaginary Version of Him, in Which He Was Perfect."
