SPECIAL INTEREST: SPRINKLES GOES GANGSTA ON OUR ASSES

Ah, Sprinkles Cupcakes. That iconic relic of Gyllenhaalism that was thrust into notoriety last summer when Jake went to the cupcake specialty store twice in one week. Just days after Jake's purchases, I gave the workers there quite a thrill by showing up myself. It was a magical time for everyone involved.

So what's happened to Sprinkles all these months after JG and PG showed the world that all the cool kids are doing it Sprinkles-style? Well, apparently they're doing well for themselves, as witnessed by this special report on National Public Radio which fails to mention Jake, but does creatively compare cupcake sales to the East Coast/West Coast rap feud. Only NPR. Click HERE and then click "listen" to hear the 5 minute report.

Some actual Sprinkles cupcakes at someone's actual high school.

OK, so it was a slow news day. But come on. I know you're all dying to learn more about Sprinkles Cupcakes. Who isn't? When you can't have Jake, why not have what Jake's eating?

Big thanks to PG's real life friend Megan for compulsively listening to NPR.

Picture taken in the author's Gyllenmad youth (aka last summer). Sadly, none of the above are red velvet.

This is of major importance. Cupcakes are a vital national interest and Jake is a vital national treasure. (And I sometimes think of him as My Cupcake!)I think some foolish turd at NPR editted the Jake part out to keep it to 5 minutes. There is obviously a deepening rift between the East and West Coasts and the cupcake phenom is an excellent barometer.There is really no way to know how long or how deep it is! Only Jake would know that. If Jake is involved, it must be very deep...and very long. No amount of spackling things over with cupcake icing will hide this rift. If it takes him forever, I believe Jake is determined to slowly and very carefully lick all the icing off and expose it for what it really is! Maybe the censors at NPR didn't want us to know how deeply involved he is!

Darling, how about because Jake burns a zillion calories a day with all his mad activities, and I'm stuck behind a desk? ;) Though I promise you this, if ever I were to eat with him, I would eagerly accept anything he wanted me to swallow.

I have to interrupt this discussion to report a REALLY TERRIBLE THING that could happen. There are pictures on TMZ and x17...yes both...of Paris Hiton...gasp...out cycling!
She's all black sequinned top (I know)and black exercise pants and she's trying to learn how to ride a two wheeler! We need agents to set up a cordon around JBG. We need to establish a perimeter. We need back up. We need stun guns. We need for Jake to be removed to Cannes ASAP. And for the convicted felon to be remanded to the prison to serve out the full term of her sentence. Her bike will be destroyed and she is never to mount another cycle...or cyclist for that matter, for the rest of her life.

I agree that when you can't have Jake you might as well have what he's eating. Unfortunately, like Cherita, I am stuck behind a desk all day and I wouldn't dream of jogging and biking early in the morning like JG. Consequently the dozen Sprinkles cupcakes I must have consummed back in March still haven't been burned off!

Don't worry, there is always some fun alternative. How about Extreme Ironing ?

Not to worry showerlady. Looking at the width of the wheels, this is a trainer bike for three year olds. Paris would never catch Jake on such a machine.

Cupcakes from the South End Buttery in Boston kick ass. I wonder if Jake has given them a try?? ;-)

cmc and showerlady your first two posts cracked me up! I just dropped my vegimite toast all over the keyboard!!

Oh and the jw post was good too, i just dont have time to listen to a 5minute discussion of cupcakes :( Its on the priority list of things to do when i get home this avo tho!

And paris Hilton? WTF What she gonna do, cycle out of jail?

Aparently Jake is on T4 at some point this weekend (T4 - Sat/Sun morning tv in the UK principally for students or those recovering from hangovers). I'd imagine it's a prerecorded interview for Zodiac, but I would just like to apologise to Jake for being subjected to the interviewing 'skills' of Steve Jones, the Sarpong woman or that really, really annoying blonde bloke who needs a slap even more then the first two.

I suspect there will be lots of Jake all over the television and newspapers and magazines over this whoe week...in Europe. And he is probably getting ready for Cannes as well.

cina said...

I wonder if he was getting shots for going to Cannes the other day. ;) You never know Jake, you COULD get the yellow fever - even though you don't get the yellow fever in France....

BWAHAHAHA!

phoebe said...

I'd pay GOOD money for a Sprinkles Cupcake right now. Ah, the cravings..

kokodee said...

Thanks for the tip anon 11:39. Its been ages since I watched T4.
June can be annoying but I did like her the pairing of her and Vernon Kay.

How cute is he in the new banner?! MWUAH! :)

Hey, good new look - sort of regal. Like that!

Well, here's a link for you. I suggest you bookmark it.

(Although I'm sure a link will be available on the blog soon)

Cool new look! Are we Her Majesty's Secret Agents now?

And Jake looks so fierce and dangerous with the stuffed crocodile! :D

Yay for the banner!

Back to topic:

But PG, how about toothpicks? How about bubble gum? Or straws? I mean cupcakes are important too, but the Jake-Chewing-At-Stuff overall concept is huge. So many parameters to be factored in and analyzed.
What are the potential causes of it? What is JG’s current favorite chewable item? How is the trend evolving? What would JW’s suggestions to Jake be?
So many important questions...

Anonymous said...

Like I said before on another thread. He's been doin' a lot of chewin' lately...toothpicks, gum, and like that. I said it before. I think it has something to do with sex. But I don't know what.

KayDee said...

What is JG’s current favorite chewable item?

before we consider it any further, we should make sure there are no children among us! :D

Shaken, not stirred said...

Love the new banner!! I hope you plan on adding the links, forum, etc.

PS: I think the gum/toothpick thingy is because he may have started smoking again, just IMO, jogging and cycling aside.

Jake isn't a smoker. Don't ask me how I know. I know. He used to smoke. Since he's taken up cycling seriously and since he jogs, really runs, seriously, he doesn't smoke. And in which lifetime would he be able to hang around Lance Armstrong and smoke. I think the toothpicks and gum, etc. are props. I think he feels cool when he does that. Either that or he is very orally fixated.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I know he quit. He probably thinks it ,akes him look cool.

coffeecat said...

Has JakeWatch become Royal JakeWatch? I never quite figured out why he was holding a giant stuffed alligatorin this photo. WTF? Oh we KNOW why Jake is chewing on various items like toothpicks, fingernails, and straws is totally because of his oral fixation. It's what makes him such a good kisser.

Anonymous said...

I also think it calms him.So he doesn't stress out.

Anonymous said...

OK. So where is Jake? More important. Where is Jake's mother. Bcz that's where Jake will be tomorrow. If she is in Brooklyn to be with Maggie and Ramona, then that's where Jake will be. OTOH, Maggie and Ramona and Peter might come to California.But I'm betting NYC.From there he'll go to Cannes. I betcha. And Maggie will go to London for Batman. And then Jake will go to London to promote Zodiac, but really to see Maggie. Then all the UK JakeWatch Agents will get to meet him, and then he will look at this blog and immediately fall in love with all the agents and since he won't be able to chose, he will draw names and each agent gets him for a week, and then after that...What?...OK. I have to go take my meds now.

S4M985 said...

Coffeecat! You crack me up. HAHA I think he does it on purpose. He walks out the door and goes "shit, i forgot my toothpick, how am i going to turn on the JW agents without it, cmon guys i gotta go back and get it" Hes so modest, and let me tell you it f*cking works

Loving the new look again, that pic is HOT.. steamy hot!

theshowerlady said...

I am mildly upset...OK. More than mildly.Pictures posted on x17 pap site of Jake jogging.No big thing. The thing that upset me? They specifically said he was near his home. We've seen Jake jogging a number of times. Why divulge the location. I don't like that they did this. I think they did it on purpose. I think there should be laws against them invading someone's neighborhood and trespassing in residential areas.

dare2dream said...

It's funny that he has become so orally fixated after doing Zodiac with Robert Downey Jr. because RD had a habit of doing same type of thing - chewing on toothpicks, straws, etc. Wonder if the habit rubbed off. LOL Watch RD Jr. in the movie "Only You" and he's chewing on something through the whole movie.
