AMIDST ALL THE EXCITEMENT, JAKE QUIETLY CONTINUES TO SELL HIMSELF

It's been an exciting week so far for Gyllenhaal-lovers and Jake Watch-lovers alike, what with all the births, birthdays, and anniversaries. But it seems like someone is feeling is a little left out of all the excitement. You know. That guy. What's his name? Oh, right. Jake.

While we've all had our attention focused elsewhere, Jake has hopped right back on the auction circuit, apparently desperate for attention even if it has to be bought. Now don't get too excited agents; this time you're not getting the full package when you lay down your $6601 and then later retract your bid because you live in Asia and couldn't possibly pay for airfare. No, this time you're bidding on something even better than the memory of a free studio-sponsored lunch and an inevitably awkward conversation with The Sex. Read all about it in this cleverly titled article, "Get Inside Jake Gyllenhaal's Pants," because apparently they're totally selling off all this stuff from Brokeback Mountain and for the second time in a month, I feel the full weight of my entry-level salary. I wonder if they're selling Jack Twist's belt buckle. I think I could probably forego eating for a month if I could get my hands on that.


P.S. Thanks, Joyce, for the heads up!

Prophecy Girl Said…Read all about it in this cleverly titled article, "Get Inside Jake Gyllenhaal's Pants," because apparently they're totally selling off all this stuff from Brokeback Mountain…

Good God that’s great marketing, who could resist!

As for the belt buckle, I’m a bit skint myself after the last couple of Gyllenhaal related purchases, but I don’t mind throwing a couple of quid in the hat if we start a Jake Watch bid.

You and Brits can fight it out between yourselves as to who would actually get anything we bought!

Simon Agent 002 said...

I thought Brit or Prophecy Girl would go for the socks?

ATD said...

^^^Good idea Simon, they could have one each!

Anonymous said...

Do you have to go to Washington for this or is there any online bidding?

jacknastygirl said...

LOL ...girls, you must get this belt!

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ I can't figure this out, although I'll admit I haven't looked into it all that much. I'm hoping it's online. Does anyone know?

And SOCKS?! How could I have forgotten about the most important wardrobe item in Jake Gyllenhaal's closet?! Dammit...maybe I'll go without food for two months...

Prophecy Girl said...

Oops, my arrows were for the anon. Sorry!

Prophecy Girl said...

OK, apparently I've lost my mind because it says clearly in the article it's an online thing. This is good. I can work with this. And I'm going to stop posting now.

Katie said...

I'd settle for a sock, or just one of those buttons on that big warm sheepskin jacket of Jack's... What about the moustache?

veeveevee said...

The JEANS, people, the JEANS! Just look at them (le sigh)

Perhaps if I sell my car...

Kendra said...

His belt hipnotized me since the first BBM sequences. I want it, you can bid for his socks!

alexa said...

I want the shirt. *sigh* The holy shirt!

Or the hat. Or the belt.

But I´d rather have the former owner of this things. Life is so unfair! :)

mrs_dalloway said...

I see that we have to start gambling if we want some of Jake.One of us should get lucky!

I would go for that shirt anytime!That shirt made me cry nervously in BBM!!

Anonymous said...

The forever-together shirts were sold at auction for 100K a while back.

My car goes on sale this weekend.
I want one of Heath's hats.

Anonymous said...

I want the white t shirt, cheekily peeking out from under the blue shirt - I could sniff it at night *did I type that outloud*

JoyceDavenport said...

I want the red shirt from the reunion scene- but I would settle for a sock- , Simon, ATD,anybody -want to go half with me?

Now all I have to figure out is whether I hope they washed them or not. I'm beginning to suspect I may need professional help- and I don't mean a lawyer...

JoyceDavenport said...

The actual auction site is HERE

ATD said...

^^^ Thanks for the link Joyce.

Now as to going half on a sock? Depends if you would want the left or the right foot, and definitely not if they had been washed!

alexa said...

Oh joycedavenport, I´m with you on the professional help front. Maybe we can join a group session.

Simon Agent 002 said...

No thanks on the socks....I'll leave those to others.

Anonymous said...

I want the underwear...unwashed.
I want Jake's FUNK!

Did they sell his 'special' hat? (The one they made custom for that big sexy ass noggin of his)

Jake is just pimpin his ass wildly for causes isn't he? I think he's gonna have to take up painting or printmaking at this rate - he's just not gonna have enough shit to auction off!

smurfette said...

Cowboy hats, boots, jeans, and more!

for your sake, PG, i hope "more" refers to socks haha. i bet the hat's gonna go for a sweet buck.

Anonymous said...

That damn parka, of course. The only item of clothing mentioned in the film apart from the missing shirt?

britpopbaby said...

I've signed up for the newsletter. That Tamarin has taken a chunk out of the Jake Watch Piggy Bank but god, we have to try for the socks surely?

The Bearded Lady said...

Maybe we could put a request into the ACLU?
Put Jake's socks up for auction.

How better to complete the "SOCK WATCH" ™ annals, than actual sock/s...

Picture this: mannequin foot form in the center of the Jake Watch Sock Watch display case...elevated above a surrounding field of now famous sock photos....with an actual sock....slowly rotating...lit from below....

Anonymous said...

In one of the century's biggest mistakes, the shirts *were* washed before they were auctioned. Perhaps wardrobe didn't clean everything. One can hope.

Prophecy Girl said...

Surely "entire wardrobe" means socks, too? And who would be crazy enough (aside from us) to actually want them? I think we can do this, guys.

smurfette said...

BP, have you posted a pic of the tamarin yet? i'm curious.

britpopbaby said...

TBL - that is the most beautiful imagery. A tear came to my eye. A rotating, back-lit sock display. In the reception area of JW HQ, to the right of the Fountain of Gyllenhaal bodily fluids...

We can totally play the crazy card on this. We just have to hope our Jake-craziness out weighs the BBM-craziness.

britpopbaby said...

I'm not sure which actual Tamarin we have yet smurfette, but I guess they all look the same - it's a brown and white one if that helps.

Nothing Really Matters said...

it's a brown and white one if that helps. LOL.

Go for the socks!

Anonymous said...

Speaking of gifts, like the Tamarin, what happened to Jake and Poppa G's Boo/JW T-shirts, Brit??? Are they on their way to Jake and Pops? Would love to see pics of them wearing them!

pgcatz said...

I want Jack Twists' black hat. On the date with Jake E bay auction, the Man in my life said he would bid up to $2,000.00 for me to win. I told him we would need a second mortgage on the house. I thought it would be well over $10,000.00. We ARE talking about Jake here. I was very surprised the bidding wasn't more. Look how much they got for the bloody shirts from Brokeback Mountain. Jake is worth more than those shirts.

The Bearded Lady said...

Who in their right mind would want this creature?
Looks rather vicious to me.

ATD said...

^^^ Is it a freakin GREMLIN that some idiot fed after midnight?

That’s one ugly looking thing!

It hasn't clicked until now, are you the aftertd who bought Jake's signed poster? I'm officially so jealous now.

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh dear, Google claims it's a Tamarin...Up until that point, I thought was some exotic Mexican fruit... which Martha Stewart made popsicles from once.

Good Lord the picture enlarges and there is Tamarin goo hardened in it's fur!....

Spirit said...

I like to set up a link to you from the Travel Accessories blog. What do you think about that?

The Bearded Lady said...

Ok now I know what I have tamarin confused with, tamarind
...which is the fruit that is used as a popsicle flavor south of the border...

Doesn't look very appetizing.

OT - Zodiac poster

Zodiac poster

It's the pulp inside tamirind pod that is used. It's really rather sour and is used all over Asia for use in cooking. Also found in HP sauce and chutney.

amerita said...

Thanks for the link to the poster, I live in San Francisco! Makes me shiver... Love the 'O' in Zodiac and I am so glad they stuck with the original title (and not Chronicle) This movie will rock!

smurfette said...

whoa, TBL, that pic will give me nightmares. haha, i also mix up tamarin with tamarind a lot.

green, thanks! the movie poster rocks! i agree with the comment, should've been "from the director of se7en and fight club", cuz FC was loads more popular than panic room. also, how come no mention of the all-star cast on the poster? JG, RD jr, mark ruffalo, c'mon! marketed right, this movie has all the potential to get the dudes AND the fangirls to the cinemas-- and since my movie tastes usually straddle those two demographics, i really can't wait!! hope it gets a december release...

dani said...

Love the poster. Got shivers when I first saw it like Amerita. I use to live in the Bay Area and San Francisco has always been my favorite city. It's going to be agony waiting for the opening. December would be great, but if we must wait until January then I will consider it my birthday present just like BBM was since I saw it for the first time in January!

OT: Theres a Gawker sighting of Jake and what sounds like Chris (Unidentified male decked out in Livestrong gear) Cycling on Central Park West. This is the 2nd sighting of Jake in that area this week which means that he is staying there with family and his new niece rather than Soho/Tribeca. That would explain the lack of pics which I am very happy about.

SquallCloud said...

I loved when Jack went to undo the belt buckle. That was one of the sexiest parts of the FNIT scene... that and "Ennis" riding "Jack" like a horse. MMmmmmmmm.

kaydee said...

ok, i would give anything to get his black stetson. i would even sell my 2 cats.

wontingwitch said...

squallcloud, there is no end to the amount of times I watched as Jake took off that belt one handed. The belt buckle flick after he put his pants back on was cute as hell too. That belt is priceless.

perfectscore_goldstar said...

Must I remind PG that she will be in NYC and must gain access to a computer if she is to bid on socks ??? ;)

nice anonymous said...

Sorry to be so blunt. But ... if that arrow pointing to Jake's handsome, leggy figure could be moved just a smidgen lower, so that its point was nearly resting upon a particularly prominent fold in the denim ... that would constitute an entirely accurate representation of what Nice Anonymous wants.

britpopbaby said...

I'm not sure we can spring for the belt buckle. That's a piece of actual cinema history.

Angel said...

Um...wearing the belt buckle right now. No joke. What about it?
