AULD LANG SYNE, DUDES

Is it really 2007 tomorrow? Where did the year go? Oh yeah, looking at pictures of Jake, watching Brokeback Mountain, pausing Jarhead, complaining about the delayed release of Zodiac, being threatened with three seperate lawsuits, wondering where Boo went, warming to Kirsten Dunst, loving everything about Maggie, having fun with Photoshop, realising how hot babydaddy Sarsy is, and, finally, pondering who Jake loves more: Socks or smoothies? Girls or boys? New York or LA? Biking or Lance?

I feel like we've rounded off the year about three times now but since it is the actually end of year how about a:

As voted for by the devoted fans, valued members of the local church community, scorned lovers, Puggle Owners of Great Britain and all inmates at Missouri State Penn.

*votes may have been tampered with.

Feel free to add your own. If you need us, I'll be scaling the Millenium Eye in a bid to save London from a terrible attack by an evil Russian magnate with one eye and a pussy who has replaced all the fireworks with TNT. ProphecyGirl will be taking the newly restored Jake Watch helicopter to New York, airlifting national treasure Dick Clark out of Times Square as the Chinese mafia have placed inside the ball a hoarde of man-eating rats. Anneka and Lt Dan will be in Wales, knocking back Malibu and chewing on leeks until the clock strikes twelve when they'll have a drunken pash 'neath the rotting Christmas tree. Terence will be on guard in Edinburgh, just making sure everything goes to plan. Where will you be?

Happy New Year my lovelies!

Happy new year Brits, PG and all the Jake Watchers!

Those "highlights" of Jake Watch are really good examples of what this blog is all about. Irony and tongue-in-cheek humour - I love it! I'm not going anywhere next year, I'll keep coming here for my daily dose of Jake and laughter. It's become an addicion!

Have a lovely new years eve everyone! Peace,

Devoted agent Cina xxx

cina said...

Joyce - so glad to see you here! Happy New Year to you too, dear! *hugs* :)

Happy New Year Jake Watch agents!!!

all that new year's atmosphere got me thinking about when i come here in let's say 20 years time to admire the socks of a 46 year old, bald jake with a spare tyre around his waist and lovely wrinkles around his eyes. and i would have to explain to my granddaughter what was so sexy about him and why i'm laughing histerically at some socks...

for me 2006 will forever be the year of Brokeback Mountain and Jake Watch.

sorry, in a nostalgic mood today.

anyway, hope that you will still be here in 20 years' time, Britpopbaby, ProphecyGirl and Anneka, and all the agents.

as for votes (voting is sexy!:P) i also like the interview with the moose or smth... and of course your great questionnaire

keep going and once again, i wish you a very happy new year

kaydee said...

malibu with leeks? how tasteful...:P

and i think the christmas experience taught us that leaving jake unguarded for even a single day is not a good idea. i hope there are some agents having an eye on him even during the festivities

cina said...

You're absolutely right kaydee. And New Years celebrations also come with - GASP! - fireworks!!
We cannot allow ourselves to relax agents. Especially not tonight! We must stay alert!

britpopbaby said...

ALSO, almost forgot about this! We finally got an explanation from Cantara about why Stephen Gyllenhaal decided to give PG, Ally, and Danielle of the Sarsgaard Soiree the completely unnessecary and rude talking to at the Zinc Bar back in Oct.

I'm posting it in the Forum.

kokodee said...

Happy new year everyone! And what a beautiful one ahead, looking foward to more, more, moreeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

I'm headed to the London Eye at Waterloo, hope I don't get too drunk.

Happy new year everyone.

Happy New Year everyone from me in Oxford, England.

Particular love to the very special Dani, Brits, PG, Cina, ATD, Roco, Joyce, Simon, and Penny.... oh yes, and Jake!

Cheers everyone and here's to 2007!

Like the motto of the Los Angeles police dept.
My new year's resolution is to serve and protect...
and it's in that vain,
I'm starting work on knitting a asbestos flame retardant sweater for Jake.
I do hope he likes turtlenecks?

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

Agnes said...

Happy new year to you all!!!!!!!!

penny lane said...

Wish you all a wonderful 2007 with lots of love and very little worries! There are several people who, through what they post here, make me feel like I have come to know them this past year (miss you Joyce!) and without mentioning names I wish every one of you all the very best!
Special thanks to Britpopbaby and Prophecy Girl for all the hard work they put into this blog and for all the laughs they give us..!

The happiest of New Year's to all. I'm so glad for this post, BPB & PG! It gives me the chance to reflect not only on what brought me to JW (Jake, of course!) but what kept me here! And I must say, that while the Jack Nasty Guide to American Democracy is totally one of the most brilliant and amusing pieces I've read anywhere, I found, once again, that I was seized by fits of uncontrollable laughter I mean laugh-out-loud-with-tears-streaming-down-cheeks laughter while re-reading the priceless interview with Jake.
I'm confident you will be inspired to new heights in 2007 bcz Jake, just being Jake will provide the necessary motivation. How cuold he not? Love to all! Oh. Anneka's movie reviews are totally brilliant. I look forward to more.

elusivemiss said...

Socks or smoothies?

Or perhaps wind chimes? :o)

Girls or boys?

I say both, like everyone else.

New York or LA?

I say LA, but then I'm biased in favour of the West Coast.

Biking or Lance?

I hope it's biking, for his sake...

The Jack Nasty Guide to US Democracy

This one gets my vote (I love all these polls, can we have more of them in the New Year?!), though I only just now caught the 'Golden Fiend' post - Lol!

Where will you be?

One of the cool things about Sydney is that we're the second major city to experience the New Year (the first being Wellington, NZ), so Happy New Year from the 1st of January!!!

Time to drop now~

All the best for the year ahead to everyone ~ :o)

Before I go, here's a random snippet of information courtesy of BBC News:

If left alone, 70% of birthmarks will naturally fade away.

So that explains it...

BTW, fellow JW'ers, if you haven't yet had the opportunity...plz pop into Gilded Moose to review the celebrity holiday greetings whilst they're on vacation. Matthew McConaughey's ode to the Winter Solstice is particularly affecting.
The Gilded Moose really "captures" Matty's voice and his own distinct style in a way that almost rivals the Jake/BPB convo. Almost the funniest shit I ever read!

hedda parsons said...

Happy New Year to everyone at JW! And thanks Brit and PG for putting s much time and energy into this blog, looking forward to 2007!

And to everyone who plans on going out tonight to celebrate: have fun but please be careful out there !!

From New York: Happy New Year to Brits and ProphecyGirl, and all the other regulars (and irregulars) at Jake Watch.

Happy New Year 2007 to you all Jake Watch Agents!

My favorite post is the interview with Jake. If someone granted me a Jake Watch New Years wish and I could pick one post and Jake would read it, this would be the one.

BPB, PG, Anneka, our darling Jake, and all the others here at JW, a very Happy and healthy New Year to you and your loved ones.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all... 2006 turned out to be a great year. There was Brokeback Mountain, lots of Jake and my discovery of JW. What a cool community to be a part of. Thanks Brit and PG for all of your hard work. A New Year's wish for a fantastic 2007 to the girls and guys on the BBM threads.
And a special one for Katie!

Girl Friday said...

Happy New Year everyone! Oh, and happy belated Chrismahanakawanza!

I can feel it, 2007 is going to be your/our year! It will be the year that all of our dreams come true. It will be the year I finally meet Johnny Depp, marry him, move to Europe and die. (Hopefully with some time in between the whole marriage / death thing but you know how it is!)

Disclaimer: I know I said this at the beginning of 2006 but that was just a practice year for the glory that is 2007. Also please disregard anything I said at the beginning of 2005 - I was being foolish and most likely drunk. The kind of drunk you become after consuming several thousand jack 'n cokes, several hundred Jello shots and doing three keg stands while attempting to keep my breasts from flying from the inside my top.

Anyways - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Girl Friday
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

a funny Monty Python link several posts back.

as for my feelings toward the new year?
I sort of hoped Bush
would resign, and our war would end, not escalate.
But I think I'm asking quite alot of 2007 uh?
I can still dream can't I?

Happy New Year to all of the JakeWatch agents ! Here's to another year of being amazed by Jake's footwear, hopefully no orange spandex, Jake's multi-tasking, the Zodiac movie and much more Jakeness than we can adequately handle ! :)

Whooooo friggin' hoo ! 2007!

AlinaGyllenhaal said...

Happy New Year, bitches!!!
I hate you all 'cause you're able to watch Jake hosting SNL. I here in Kazakhstan have only BBC and CNN, which, I guess, won't broadcast SNL. I won't see him! I hate you, hate you, hate you!
Love you, anyway...

cina said...

Alinagyllenhaal, don't worry! I am 100% certain you will be able to catch Jake on SNL thanks to IHJ. They will have it up on their site as soon as it has aired in the States. You will be able to see it - I PROMISE! :)

Girl Friday said...

I hate you all 'cause you're able to watch Jake hosting SNL.

No worries, you know that will be online five seconds after it airs broken down by segment with commercials removed in three different formats accompanied by thumbnails of each segment on iheartjake.com ;-)

I will be at home watching it in High-Definition on my giant screen TV. I'm also recording it on my Blu-Ray HD recorder because I still haven't paid for that either and I need to find some use for that damn thing. I'm also currently concocting a plan to send my boyfriend away for the duration of the show since he lacks the ability to shut-up during Heroes and I have no doubt he won't be able to during this.

BTW - the BBC rocks. I'm really into Torchwood for some reason and I hate sci-fi.

Happy Hangover Day!

Anonymous said...

girl friday, you must promise...no matter what occurs, edit the SNL thing and upload it on YouTube!!!!

Simon Agent 002 said...

If other guest appearances are any example, it will most likely be on Youtube. So don't dispair yet.

And Girl Friday:
I'm very jealous of your television! LOL

Anonymous said...

Friday Girl, no need to rub it in for those of us less into new technologies :P

but the idea that IHJ and You Tube will upload it cheers me up immensly.

Happy New Year to everyone at Jake Watch!

2006 will go down in my personal history as the year I fell in love with a movie and an exceptionally talented, exceptionally hot young man named Jake Gyllenhaal. It is also the year I discovered this fabulous funny site that I can't get enough of!

Wishing everyone, including sweet wonderful Jake, a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Living now for January 13th and SNL!!

Day 1 2007.
12 days 3 hours 53 minutes to JAKE SNL

Anonymous said...

I'm really excited about SNL, but I'm curious about Rendition, too. I can't believe they finished. I know Reese shot some scenes and Peter shot some scenes, but I thought Jake would be part of shooting in Morocco and I also wondered about South Africa. He plays an agent who has a crisis when he observes Egyptian police interrogate and torture a man, so I assumed he be on the shoots abroad. But if he's doing SNL and the awards season stuff starts, I'm just confused about this. Do they interrupt shooting schedules for weeks and weeks at a time when they make a film? And if Zodiac is due out in March, will he be promoting it? I just need more stuff to look forward to.

Anonymous said...

12:58PM: I doubt that he and Reese are done yet. I think the US filming ended around Dec. 10th or 11th when they filmed a few scenes in DC (Jake wasn't included). Then I read that the crew took off to film in Morocco, as far as we know Jake was in the US as of last week, don't know about the rest of the cast. They may be just filming stuff in Morocco that only includes extras and not the main stars. I would assume at some point they will be needed for Morocco and S. Africa, but there does seem to be a long break in between. The SNL gig will reqiure that Jake be in NY a few days early at least, he may finish filming Rendition after that. And as far as awards shows are concerned I doubt that he will be around for any of that since he isn't up for anything this year.

get real said...

I agree, 1:48 AM, I think filming will resume sometime in January. Peter was with the family during the fire, so he was off for the holidays too. And I saw pics of Reese shopping in LA at around the same time. Plus, Reese is scheduled to present at the Golden Globes, January 15th. Jake is doing SNL on the 13th and I hope he then flies back to LA to be at the GG's for M, along with Peter. I would think that "Redition" will resume after that most likely with the cast in Morocco and South Africa. Since Jake isn't up for any awards I would think he would be filming during most of awards season with promotion for "Zodiac" around the Oscars in late February. I think they could do all the foreign filming before then.

Christ, I'm SOOO late to all this, but...

It wouldn't be unusual for Jake to be asked to be a presenter at the Awards shows. GG, Oscars and BAFTA,(which he won)especially if he has a movie coming out. People with films to proote are usually asked to participate for those things.
