ALL BECAUSE THE BLOGGER LOVES TO VOTE


I need your opinions on something and be 100% honest:

Can you rate your interest in Stephen Gyllenhaal from 1-5 (general interest not pervy thoughts). It's for a show-and-tell I'm doing at school, thanks!

Scale of Sarcasam added to aid some pupils:

5. Poppa G rocks my socks! Poetry, films, politics - bring it on.
4. He begat The Gyllenhaal, it's all good in my book.
3. I like his ass. What? Is that not appropiate?.
2. Sometimes Jake does not fufill my needs and I turn to Pops in desperation.
1. Who?

Not satisfied with the choices above? Try these instead:
a. I just use Jake to get closer to Poppa G.
b. britpopbaby, sometimes you confuse me more than I'd like to be confused.
c. What? You want my bank details too, woman?

if 1 means 'i don't give a shit' and 5 means 'i can't sleep at night thinking of him' i choose 1.

i would so like to have such projects at school, any details, please?

4.5

muffin said...

I guess I would be a 3.5, maybe a 4.

The more I learn about him the more I like him...but I also have pervy leanings as I think he fills out a pair of jeans really, really nicely!

kokodee said...

You're still in school??? Taketh thee ages to graduate me dear?

Hehe, no pervy thoughts, eh?
Shit! that's hard.
Ok seriously,I enjoyed some of the poems in claptrap and emm.. yeah that's it. I also think he's sexy..that's a 3 for me.

cina said...

3,5 for me.

None.

I heard him reading one of his poems....boring

Anonymous said...

oops, I just made the comment above --- about being boring --- I forgot to give him a number --- 1

smurfette said...

i was gonna say 4, but that picture is awesome and just tipped the scale to 4.5 =).

i was just gonna ask why JW chose not to post the recent pic of jake and pops from the nyc white t-shirt series below (where he's holding his grey sweater), but this pic made up for my poppa craving thx =)!

in general, i'm somewhat interested in pops, his poetry, work has insight into films, hollywood, tv-- all of which interest me. insofar as his work/interviews, etc reveal insight into jake or maggie, or even peter, then my interest in him spikes exponentially. it's the honest truth. i know this isn't the question, but helps me explain myself-- in terms of interest in the entire gyllenhaal klan: in order of who most interests me, i'd say jake, peter, maggie, stephen, then naomi

"Brit, I'm sure you must be busy...but a comical scale with comments to gauge intensity by would sure make this easier!" ;)

So im left with "Kaydee's scale"...
4+ I'll say.

Hearing him deliver his poetry (short video clip) was helpful for me to relate to it, and I do read his blog entries when I become aware of them.
I'm impressed with the whole family.

Like Muffin said, "The more I learn about him the more I like him" ;)

is his father, 5

only1annabel said...

I'd say about 3. I'm intrigued about your project...hoping there will be more details!

Anonymous said...

he's not jake, but is directly related by blood. and he's a poet. i'd say for me, 3.5

Anonymous said...

Why?

britpopbaby said...

You want a comical scale? Bejesus!

gummybug said...

5, absolutely. Gyllenpappa is a very interesting man.

kaydee said...

Brits, comical scale would be nice, details about that school project of yours would be even nicer. what do i have to do to have projects about the gyllenhaals to do at school instead of linguistic mumbo-jumbo or *shudder* structural interpretation of literature ?

Solitaire said...

4ish

amerita said...

It's a 2,5 for me.

amerita said...

I meant 2.5 sorry.

britpopbaby said...

Okay, comical scale is not accurate or even that comical.

It's not really for a school project kaydee, I was joking. PG and I just want to gauge the general Poppa love.

Simon Agent 002 said...

"You want a comical scale? Bejesus!"

Yeah, What can I say I'm needy.
I used "Kaydee's" so..I made do.
I know your busy trying to raise funds for some sort of Ebay lunch auction...
I understand, I really do.
It's just that your scale would have hit it out of the ballpark, making a rating easier to pin down.

kaydee said...

4. "He begat The Gyllenhaal, it's all good in my book"

i still would be 1 but the reason above made me stop and think a while, so... it's 4 now.

kinda relieved it's not a school project, was turning green from jealousy, and it is so not my colour

ATD said...

Hmm, the more I get to know the more intrigued I become. Then again, the more I get to know the less I understand. So putting my ignorance aside I would have to say a 3.5 with an upward trend.

Elle said...

4, for sure!! He's Jake's dad, and he's literary - both are winners in my book!

dani said...

Definitely a 4 for giving us the amazing Jake. Too bad Jake's recent photo is not up there with his dad. This is the closest I have seen him looking like Stephen. He has his dad's attractiveness - only kicked up a couple of notches. If this is what Jake has to look forward to as he ages, he should do alright!!

The Bearded Lady said...

Poll 4 But u shouldn't vote twice.
OT
In case you lose your marbles, and realize you should be attending this movie set, catering truck lunch thingy...

Remember drastic times require drastic measures...

Here's a link to make contact with "Hello" magazine...
What could they do? ignore you?...say no ?
Even the attempt to reach "Hello" would make for a funny blog post if nothing else?
Does "Hello"
wish to insult the blogging world audence?...buyers of their magazine?...they best handle you with care.

http://contact.hellomagazine.com/index.html

PS...Maybe you have a bit of pull with that Danish mag? The one which recommended Jake Watch remember it?

Tuesday, August 29, 2006
WOOHOO! JAKE WATCH MAKES THE PRESS!


Send them the exclusive idea?
Perhaps Joyce would act as your agent on the phone...she has experience..and could negotiate a deal?
(you could bring her as your guest) ;)

Ok I'll stop going on , it was just a fun semi-fantasy idea.

brookiemb said...

2. When all else fails, he can be kinda interesting.

britpopbaby said...

OT:

TBL, UK Hello mag are more interested in the likes of Posh & Becks, Wayne Rooney & Colleen, Jordan & Peter Andre.

I don't see them throwing 4 grand my way for this.

Sorry to drag the average down, but a class on elder hotness does sound sort of fun. I'd certainly study for my A levels in that course.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Maybe the Danish magazine will become confused over the exchange rates...and not realize the extra zero?

it happens all the time.

They love you, the Danish.

britpopbaby said...

i was just gonna ask why JW chose not to post the recent pic of jake and pops from the nyc white t-shirt series below

what pics were those smurfette? don't think I've seen them.

kokodee said...

Aah! Just checking out the update and my original choice at 3 still stands.
I mean, who in their right mind dosen't want a piece of the gyllenass?

nice anonymous said...

Yes, I'd place my interest at level three. The taut outlines of the Gyllenbutt, covered in denim, are a precious legacy. (Well, that & self-expression, creativity & the serious interest in social causes.)

Naomi is the neglected, unappreciated Gyllenhaal.

katie said...

Links to new pics with a gorgeous JG and his dad!

Kendra said...

I'd say 4 in your scale, not appropriate for rocking my socks because he's happily married.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Ok I see the scale now ! thanks...

On that one I'll say (5b)...change my prior vote please.

I know I'm a pain in the a** these last few days.
thanks again. :)

Thanks Katie. What could Jake be looking at? -

Kendra said...

Thanks for the link, Katie. I've updated these Daddy pictures in Jake Weird

kaydee said...

is it a JW agent or an unauthorised female? if the latter, look how sneaky she is...

Marla said...

I choose 4. I need to add that I am writing this while wearing my new JAKE
WATCH T. SHIRT. and I love it, love it, love it !!!!!! Thanks so much britpopbaby

Agnes said...

I really don't know so I guess I give you a 3.5

smurfette said...

sorry britpop, missed your question. glad katie helped out. i had glanced at them quickly before posting here, so i was mistaken about the grey sweater, but the rest of the outfit is the same. anyway, truly great pics of the father-son =).

Anonymous said...

Gotta go with #4. He begot The Sex. With more than a little help from the Glorious Naomi, who I don't think gets nearly enuf credit. Funny, but after studying pics from the poetry reading on Martha's Vineyard, I think Jake favors Naomi and Maggie favors Papa.

I'm Cuckoo for Cocoa Pops!

We all know where Jake got his fineness - from his Highness!

Dear sweet god - we're 16 hours 46 mins (Sep-26-06 10:00:00 PDT) from Jake being hitched with a possible weirdo all in the name of civil liberties!!

and a FREE LUNCH!

Why isn't this all over the news?

Den Of Thieves said...

5! I have crush on Poppa G. Actually I think I have a crush on the entire family.
Thanks for the link to the pictures, Katie. Those are great.

~DKBB~ said...

4...totally, 4....

Anonymous said...

Gyllenpapa is The Original Sex! It's obvious where Jake gets it from!

Tany said...

4.5 for me...

And i agree that Poppa G is the Original Sex!!

JoyceDavenport said...

Definitely a five. Love his politics, his poetry, his looks, his mind, his son...er did that just get inappropriate?

vanzmotorbike said...

4.5 - I wouldn't say he 'rocks' but I am interested in some of his works, which I haven't explored fully, and don't particularly seek out, but I did analyse one poem 'At 25' and also read his blog when a link was provided here not so long ago. I agree with his world view. So, yeah, Stephen's cool.

thesweetestone said...

after seeing the picture above...
:-)
well, 4.5- im not well informed in his movies or his poetry (exept for the poems you put on the blog, which i liked), but i would really like to be. He is smart, hot, modern....and responsible for existance of the perfection. So, how can you not love the guy?

Anonymous said...

1 and a

alexa said...

I have to go for 4.5, too. I´m not that familiar with his work, just read some of his poems, never watched one of his movies unfortunately, but what I gathered from the Q & A is that he seems to be very smart, creative, intelligent, and humble.

reitina said...

i was going to bed the other night when i vaguely spotted some "gyllenhaal" as director in hbo's late night movie. so i stayped up to watch it and later i learn that the title of the movie is losing isaiah. it's a good one tough not as good as i hope.. i've also seen the cf "rock the vote" he did with jake and peter.. so basically i see him as one who has ideals and believes in a better world and use his directing as a tool to realize it. in other word, he's quite cool. having said that, still he lacks this deadly charms jake has over me..

i give him a 2. not by bp's sarcasm standard though.

Anonymous said...

I love papa G , he rockx my world!

and he looks awesome in jeans!
I GIVE HIM 5 FOR SURE ...

Anna said...

5 -- without hesitation. I like ALL of Poppa G - looks, poetry, politics, children! :D

SquallCloud said...

Why are y'all so funny? Your funniness is unsettling actually. You can effortlessly make me caw laughter into empty rooms. (at work when I should be grading papers). Okay hmmm I'd say that I'm a 3. I mean I give props for him creating Jake and he seems nice and funny and politically fine. He has a nice little ass as you say but meh. I'd rather look at Jakes any day of the week.

Anonymous said...

2, cos he's sexy, but his son it' the true gold, baby!!!

wait, shit. He may be old, but actually....i DO like his ass!!




Honestly, not really his poetry that much, though
