(DRUM ROLL PLEASE) SOCK WATCH!

Oh god, it's been sooooo long. It's not even ironic anymore. I'm genuinely excited!

  • COLOUR: Which leading brand of detergent powder are you using, baby?
  • TYPE: Ribbed for stability and high performance
  • HEIGHT: Not knee length...but we'll take what we can get...
  • OVERALL STATUS: At first, slightly peeved that the sock reappearence has collided with the launch of another branch of the JW Empire, then glee because Jake socks are Jake socks and then fond remembrance of sock watches of yore.

oh man, i'm a nerd for reposting, but i made this comment on the previous post, but it really belongs here:

wow, so much excitement in jakeworld—new store, new sock pics, new sighting! haha, so true, jake is always cropping up to steal JW’s thunder when something big happens here!

his socks (and their gravity defying awesomeness) aside, i have to comment on the cap- i really love the knit cap look on jake! it’s been so long since those post-jarhead filming days when he was growing in his hair and would wear diff hats more often! my heart actually skipped for a moment when i thought maybe he finished rendition and celebrated by shaving his hair again! (i’m sure i’m in the minority, but i liked jake’s hair buzzed!) but then i read the urth cafe encounter, and i realized if he really made such a drastic change, the girl would’ve mentioned it…

Urth cafe encounter? Where can I read it? Please... And the socks are awesome as Jacob himself, I've missed new pictures so much

cina said...

Who is NOT excited?! Damn it's been so long! I'VE MISSED YOU JAKE!!!

And sock watch! Hasn't it been like... forever?! And we SO have to have Jake Watch socks in the JW store! Anything else is unacceptable! :p

Btw... he's got a fine pair of legs going there, don't he? Hey Nicely tanned, nicely toned and...

*thud*

Oops! Agent down again!

Ha ha I knew this was coming when my friend Tara sent me the picture of Jake jogging ...

LONG LIVE SOCKWATCH !!! :)

smurfette said...

anon, the encounter was posted on the previous comments section, it's like the first comment there!

welliwont said...

Yaaaay! Sock Watch!! I am stoked, and not only that I am in love! Doesn't he look delicious?

Prophecy Girl said...

GOD those are some nice socks.

Cina, I don't think they stock socks at either of our stores!! This is the worst thing and I can't believe we didn't think of it. Linna mentioned it a couple threads back, too...I'm on a mission. I'll see what I can come up with. ;)

britpopbaby said...

We have to get us an entire lycra Lance Armstrong approved exercise outfit!

Just Stalk It.

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ Dammit, woman! Stop making me crack up at work.

veeveevee said...

"Just Stalk It" I snorted out loud at that one! A line all in black, of course, for night time stalking, and perhaps a camo green for stalking him while running.

Jake in an all black, thief-in-the-night outfit, and yet with white socks. He did that just so they'd stand out...he knew we couldn't resist a Sock Watch.

Could we do a Hand Watch, too (or I'll do my own personal one) - but I have to say his hands and fingers are gorgeous in this shot!

Move over, Cina...

*thud*

Another agent down!

How come when HE runs and has his socks pulled up he looks fine and his socks stay put??? Why him? Maybe he's dressed in dark clothing bcz he went somewhere he didn't want to be spotted the night before? Maybe he's channeling his Marine persona and he went "on maneuvers?" (Perez Hilton claims JBG + RW = True love!)

ncwomn said...

Well, just like Smurfette, I'm reposting this comment where it more appropriately belongs...

*sigh* He has such an intense expression on his face....

How do his socks stay perfectly up while he's jogging?! On any ordinary mortal they'd be puddled around the ankles, but even Jake's socks don't dare to be anything less than perfect while adorning that glorious bod...

KayDee said...

i knew he didn't have to touch the ground. he's not human, he glides a couple of inches above it.

how does he do it to make the socks stay like that? invisible suspenders? Glue? or maybe even the socks want to touch the most of his legs, hug him, envelop him...

what happened to his knee? did he skin it? i could kiss it better :P

Just Stalk It *snort*

smurfette said...

^^ kaydee, you're hilarious. i started to quote part of your post, and realized, the whole thing made me laugh! the gliding, using glue, his socks wanting to hug his legs... lmao!

just stalk it. hell yeah!

Anonymous said...

I reckon the intense look on his face is, "Damn it! Peter has been at my ipod again, what is this? Another U2 song!! Oh for crying out loud!"

phoebe said...

Sock Watch!! YAAY!!

I must say the socks are top notch! I, too, am totally baffled by their way of staying up while Jakey is running! Amazing stuff!

how does he do it to make the socks stay like that? invisible suspenders?

LMAO!! Kaydee, you crack me up!

Oh and of course, Jake is GORGEOUS!! *whimpers*

veeveevee said...

Just Stalk It is my new favorite expression!

Just Stalk It.
I *heart* that.
Just one question...what exactly is IT? Socks? Butt? Spandex?

ncwoman said...

*sigh* Even in a knit cap, baggy running shorts, and fully covered, he's still hotter than any man on the planet.

call me cherita said...

He does so make me want to knit him something. But since we've yet to see an appearance of "Obey the Puggle!" I'm not convinced it would be worth the effort.

welliwont said...

I am getting an inkling that The Precious was given a t-shirt "Obey The Puggle" is that correct?

Ah, but what size did our Illustrious Leaders BPB & PG give to him? Has his chest not grown exponentially larger and more lickable, much more kissable? I wonder if the gifted shirt will still fit that magnificent muscle-y chest?

Anonymous said...

Well, I don't think I'd give him a shirt unless it was two sizes too small, bcz I would want every muscle and every hair outlined totally and when he sweats...wait. DOES he sweat?...anyway, if his t-shirt gets wet, I want to SEE the goods dammit! So I hope we gave him a smallish shirt.

cina said...

Ah, but what size did our Illustrious Leaders BPB & PG give to him?

I think it was Large. But I don't think he ever got the T-shirt to be honest. :/

Nothing Really Matters said...

Hello dahlings! We have leg action!

And those socks are making me tingle in places I thought died years ago!

KayDee said...

VeeVeeVeee! Where have you been??? I missed you! Glad you're ok.

muah

joycedavenport said...

Grave news agents another. One of Jakewatches iconic features (well it's been nearly a year now- in cyberspace terms that qualifies sock watch as iconic) actually depicts Jake indulging in something which may make his brain explode! (Pause for dramatic effect).

No not hanging out at Hollywood parties- multitasking. According to this learned article in the New York Times:
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/25/business/25multi.html?ex=1332475200&en=f295711cb4a65d9b&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

it's bad for you. Maybe that's why he can only speak Gyllenbabble now. We have to warn him and pry that Blackberry from his grasp before it's too late. Sounds like a special ops job.

OT: From www.people.com:

• Jake Gyllenhaal, sampling kumquats at the Farmers Market in L.A. "They were a little sour for him," a vendor tells us, adding, "He winced while he was eating, but I think he liked my goods because he must have sampled a half dozen."

Kumquats!!!

cina said...

^^LOLOL!!

Anonymous said...

These comments about kumquats confirm more than anything else that The Precious is actually HOME!
I think Perez Hilton has like nearly zero credibility, but now this Lainey gossip person is saying Jake has been seen "stealthily" driving from the neighborhood where Reese lives and
jogging in the area as well.(Gasp.)Duh! Does no one else lives in that neighborhood? Even maybe Jake? And if Jake is as flighty as some reports indicate, I would want him to jog near where friends live in case he gets lost and has to ring someone's doorbell.

veeveevee said...

*muah* right back at you KayDee!

Could we do a Hand Watch, too (or I'll do my own personal one) - but I have to say his hands and fingers are gorgeous in this shot!

Hear, hear ! I am all for that ... *sigh* what that boy's hands do to me ... or actually more specifically, what I would LIKE that boy's hands to do to me ... *sigh*

I loved the closeups of them in Zodiac ...

That's right! LOL

Anonymous said...

no one wears socks like JAKE, is there ANY part of that man that is NOT SEXY! GAWD

thank you so much JW to giving us our sock watch!

nice anonymous said...

Oh, I am so HAPPY that SockWatch is back! Feels like old times. I'm getting downright sentimental, in fact [Sniff, sniff.] Thanks so much for the memories!

heddaparsons said...

The return of Sock Watch, the feature that got me hooked on JW!!!!

anonymous blonde said...

Yes..... Sock Watch is back! In my mind it totally elevates JW above all the other, run of the mill, Jake-loving sites! : )

I am having some difficulty dragging my eyes down to the socks though...... those legs are so wonderful.

Dumbo said...

Maybe I'm dark but I kinda am digging on Gothic Jake.

Anonymous said...

You know, I really don't like Jake out running like that, alone, along those curvey, hilly roads in residential areas where there are lots of trees and foliage and he's wearing dark clothing instead of bright clothing. Some jackass could come around a curve driving too fast and knock him over. At least he was dressed warm. And soon,he'll go biking along those really busy highways and roads where there's traffic and lots of cars that go too fast. I hate that.

4:51 here. And he wears that damned iPod thing so he's listening to his music and he's "in the zone" and not hearing or paying attention to his surroundings. He definitely needs an escort, agents.
