Hey, Jake.

What up? How's it going? Getting ready for Toronto? You know, I was thinking about you and me the other day. Remembering our first time and all. It seems like a lifetime ago now but I guess it really wasn't. In fact it was...

May 2006 - You were in New York, I was in Los Angeles, but damn, it was good. I made my first mark on your online world, in the process proving I had the chops to do this job...and that I'm possibly insane. I haven't had a cupcake that good since. And I saw some outside lockers which led to the first scene ever written for the first fake movie ever written* which is one of many reasons why our first time might just be my favorite.
And then there was the second time...

October 2006 - Yeah, there was a little more at stake that time. It was you and me in New York. With your mom. And your dad. Three Gyllenhaals, three strikes, and I was out. For better or worse, Time Two changed everything. Everyone remembers that time. The opinions, the controversy; it was downright scandalous.
I was hoping for better luck with Time Three...

March 2007 - Except this time when you were in New York and I was in LA, it wasn't quite as fun. There were a lot of cancellations and happy stories from the opposite coast and a weird appearance by Mark Ruffalo's brother. In fact, even more so than Time Two, I associate Time Three with crying and hysteria. What can I say? Stalking you is emotional.
How about Time Four?

July 2007 - The secret trip to New York! Ostensibly, I was there for work, but I stuck around for a few extra days to see if you would show up. When you didn't, I stalked Heath. His absence suggested that the two of you have clearly been talking avoidance tactics...
So, is the fifth time the charm?

All I'm saying is that people are starting to think that I'm pathetic...and I'm starting to not have an argument against them. So how about it, Jake?

September 2007 - You in Toronto. Me in Toronto.

One week from today. Let's make it happen. I will even make it super-easy for you because I have tickets to the Rendition screening and NOTHING ELSE TO DO but stalk you (and see movies, and look around Toronto, and see a friend of mine who lives there, and do other things). I'm in this, Jake. I'm willing to commit if you are. All you gotta do is meet me halfway (because I can't justify a sixth mission if there are five failures in a row...normal people would have quit by now!). I mean, no pressure or anything, but I'm starting to get embarrassed at how well you're avoiding me. Give me a picture, let me introduce myself, say, "Jake Watch?" in a voice feigning familiarity (it doesn't have to be real...you're an actor!) and I will be one happy camper. It won't take much. Really. I'm easy. Let's do this thing, because, uh, yeah. This is kinda it for me.

See you next week,
Prophecy Girl

P.S. Karma, you owe me for Times 1-4 and for the deletion of the Jake in '08 MySpace page.

P.P.S. Jake Watch, at the very least I'll get you a sneak peak of the movie. :)

*Unlikely, but it sounds good.

Good luck PG!:)

Well, whatever happens have a GREAT time, PG!

Xenia said...

Oh dear...my heart skipped a beat PG! I'm so happy for you! :D

Go and get at it, for heaven sake,
I will be with you in spirit!:)

nice anonymous said...

PG, I'll see if I can get an appropriate candle at a bodega & burn it in your honor, with prayers. I really do think it's your time, though, and I'm not just saying that. But to save yourself some pain & protect your heart, you should "manage your expectations," as they say on my job.

penny lane said...

I say, three cheers for PG and her awe-inspiring perseverence..! (And even if you don't get near Jake, we are all holding our breath till you can report back to us and give us some more details on that hot scene in the movie we have been reading about..!). Good luck PG!

nice anonymous said...

Also, PG, do not think your photo of the nape of Jake's neck has been taken in vain. I find myself strangely fascinated by it, and it's figured in a few of my, er, daydreams. (I'm sure I'm not the only one.) I say, go for a picture of any body part you can possibly view from the mayhem of the Toronto crowd. Since my attraction's unrequired, I'm used to being contented with very little. ;-)

Xenia said...

No, you're not the only one nice anonimous...;)

Ah yes, the hot scene, I want a report IN DETAIL!!:D

Prophecy Girl said...

I will be all over any possible picture-taking opportunities. :) And I'll be fine! I don't think you can have as many failures as I've had and still maintain the expectations of the first (several) times. Which is why I'm glad Penny Lane brought up the sex scene because I'm honestly just as interested to learn the truth about that as anything else. ;)

I can't explain it, but I'm compelled to try one more time...I'm either hopelessly optimistic or completely fucking insane. It's difficult to say, really. I'll withhold judgment until afterwards.

felicia said...

.I'm either hopelessly optimistic or completely fucking insane.

;-DDD

I think they go hand in hand, no?

And 6th time WILL be the charm! No more bad karma for you. It's all about the power of positive thinking.

cina said...

You go girl! I'm keeping every finger and toe I have crossed for you all week long. Plus, I'll be doing my little Jake dance (uhm... yeah...) for your good fortune. And if that doesn't help, that movie better be a friggin' masterpiece!!!

Cherita said...

Yay PG!!! I know, just know, that you will get your moment this time. Should you get an autograph opportunity, I recommend that you hand him a pen with some unseen but really sticky and gross substance on it. That way he will never forget the experience. Bonus points if it leaves a foul odor on his fingers. Extra bonus points if you also get pics of him sniffing his hand.

Oh, and count me in with the group that thinks you are responsible for the sexiest back-of-Jake's-head photo of all time. It gives me chills, it really does.

bmg said...

Do you have any outdoorsy skills? I'm picturing some kind of trap involving a looped rope tied to a tree and a frothy iced coffee-type beverage as bait...make attempt five totally wipe the floor with attempts 1-4?

suzyQ said...

O the universe owes you, PG - ! -and the nape of the neck shot is sexy as all get out - as is Jake playing hard to get. Stake out a spot and scream Jake In 'o8 - or somethin' - or just take a flyin' leap at him. YOU are US!

Love, ya, girl!

phoebe said...

PG, honey, you go get him! He'd better be there, and he'd better behave! :D

And yes. I'm all sorts of jealous. :)

BirdGirl said...

I have a good feeling PG. I think that this will be it. And if it isn't try, try again. He's worth it! :) Good luck sweetie!

~Dee (perfectscore_goldstar) said...

*Ahem* PG ... you forgot to mention the meeting of one DEE with the 3 Gyllenhaals in NYC October 06 ... or 2 Gyllenhaals ... or actually, one Gyllenhaal and one voice from the bar saying "yes" in response to the question "Naomi, are you here ???" Ha ha ... good times tho ... :) Since I have double letters in both my first and last names I thought I might qualify for a mention ... even if I do do it myself ...

You can always use your photoshopping skills on the picture I took of you in front of Gyllenpoppa and put Jake's noggin in place ... I give you permission ... :)

Have a wonderful, fantabulous, amazing, incredible, JAKERIFFIC time ! ! ! :) Can't wait to hear about it ... ALLLLLL of it ! :)

AgentLola said...

Remember that chick who handcuffed herself to Hugh Grant a while ago at a premiere?
I'm just sayin.... ;)

Prophecy Girl said...

... or actually, one Gyllenhaal and one voice from the bar saying "yes" in response to the question "Naomi, are you here ???"

Dee, that made me laugh SO HARD! I had forgotten that detail about the night! Ha! It was a grievous oversight to not mention you...although I met Steve Carell on the third trip and didn't mention him, either, so I guess you shouldn't take it personally. ;D

Anonymous said...

Oh PG, I am so happy for you. I just know that this time is the charm and all that karma is going to come back to you in the form of a deliciously close interaction with The Sex!!!

I've been thinking the exact same thing!!!! GOOD LUCK PG, We'll be rooting for you (is that saying used elsewhere in the world, cause if not it would sound REALLY weird!) I can feel a great Jake week coming on, but more importantly a great JakeWATCH week!

p.s. So do u even know if hes definatly going? :s

Sheba said...

PG, have a great time and I believe for the Chinese 6 is a lucky number ?. Not to put any pressure on you or anything... but... you represent every Gyllenhaalic in the Gyllenhaalic Kingdom to say hi to our regent and convey our total love and devotion to his career. We also expect you to represent us with decorum and dignity... no smelly stuff, no water pistols in the face, no Dennis Pennis questions... though I'd go with the handcuffs :D

No, seriously though I hope you get to meet Jake in a happy circumstance, that he's aware of Jake Watch and embraces it in the spririt of exactly what it is - FUN!!

Here here.


FUN

I have faith in you, PG!!! Good luck!

PG good luck to you, you deserve it definately- I hope karma looks out for you.
Tell the spoon to take a hike and ask Jake if you can hold the baby ;)

According to this Jake and Reese will be scaling back their PR in Toronto. They cancelled all one on one interviews and will only do the press conference with Peter and Gavin. I think they did this so they don't get that are you dating or not questions that will over shadow the film, with the press conference it would be strckly Rendition and the reporters questions can be monitered IMO. More reason to believe that whatever the nature of their relationship, they are not using it to promote this movie.

Oh, Good luck PG!!

Zodiac said...

Good luck, PG and have fun!!!

Shaken, not Stirred said...

What excitng news PG, have fun and good luck!

And JW Lurker: I agree, Jake and Reese are class acts and it would have turned the whole thing into a 3 ring circus.

BirdGirl said...

It is a classy thing to do. But at sometime they will have to deal with the press if they want to promote this movie. I'm sure they will ask at the press conference.

Stephanie said...

I hope you meet him. Give us all a little hope of our own and do it so we can live vicariously through you. :) I'll have to go on a Jake mission of my own someday. If the Rendition premiere ends up being in LA, I might just have to drive out there...

Anonymous said...

Cutting back the one on one personal interviews is a good thing. It also sends a tough message to the media. And frankly, Reese can get away with it. The publicists must have had a reason to believe they couldn't trust the journalists to stick with the formula:Rendition only. It was not Jake and Reese's call alone, as much as it was the suits agreeing whole heartily with it. No one wants the "Tom Cruise" distraction crap. The buzz being generated for this film already is really heating up. Oscar buzz. They don't fool around with that. They can do their own individual simulation "interviews." Happens all the time. Publicists formulate questions. Sometimes they solicit questions from specific journos and then "produce" interviews. They sit the actor down and ask questions which they video tape.Snippets are then pulled and given to various TV and radio outlets for use in their broadcasts. Hassle free. The media outlets don't mind bcz it saves them the $$$, time and trouble to really do an interview. An actor sits for several hours, probably three or four, and gives canned answers, which they can elaborate on. So E!'s Juliana, or Ryan Seacrest will lead with the trailer, say something about Rendition, then say, "in a recent interview with E!, Jake complained about the food in Morocco," and run about 15 seconds of Jake saying something, etc. The only thing an actor might do is change his shirt so he isn't wearing the same thing in all the clips. Or not. Bcz Clooney always dresses the same. Like a priest! LOL!

Anon 2:45 here. Wanted to add: The tabloids just make stuff up anyway they don't really cover movies. The few legitimate film magazines will get their copy, including "interviews" from studio publicists and with the high end magazines like GQ or Vanity Fair agents and the actors'publicists use a different approach.
Radio and TV have very limited time slots, and for people like Charlie Rose etc.,Gavin Hood can discuss Rendition without his actors if they want to talk about Rendition. I don't think either Jake or Reese will be doing Oprah, Leno, Jon Stewart or Letterman anytime soon. If Jake does do that, he will certainly know how to fineese those questions.

Anonymous said...

Anyone wants to meet Jake will stand a better chance at the opening of Rendition in LA.Trust me on this.OTOH, there's always the Dark Knight, when the G-clan will turn out.

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ Why would you say that? A) It makes me feel like shit for trying in Toronto, and B) I can't imagine that you have any more "inside information" than I do, so why put this down? I really dislike anonymous comments wherein the person is claiming to have some deep insight that none of the rest of us have. Either back it up with some proof or don't say anything. Please.

Eh? What buzz? CHUD.

Shondra said...

PG: Just get up early and secure a place near the Red Carpet, that will be your best bet. I hear that Jake and Reese will not be doing one on one interviews and I have a feeling that neither one of them will be hanging around for after parties and such but I may be wrong. Jake And Co. left Cannes right after and din't hang around. And don't let some anon. commenter discourage you! I only wish that Brits was going with you!!

joycedavenport. said...

Hey PG best of luck. BTW what happened with the deletion of the myspace page, did I miss something?

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ No, you didn't really miss anything. It was a totally random occurrence that happened without warning or explanation. I am still e-mailing the MySpace people, desperately pleading to get it back. At first I thought it was because all the "Fake Jake's" were getting deleted and we just accidentally got thrown into the mix...however, there are still 14 pages of active "Fake Jakes" (including one claiming to be "official") so it seems like perhaps someone complained. Who? Why? I have no idea. :(

Linna said...

Best of luck to you PG!! As so many others, I'm sure this one's gonna be THE one!!

You have a fabulous time now sweetie, and tell us all about it when you get back - and as always, I'll be in your pocket the whole time :)

Nicole said...

Dear PG,

This is Rachel from the not-so-wonderful (and totally freezing) "premiere" of Zodiac back in March. I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to write sooner, but I've literally had about one day off from school since (I'm not even exaggerating..... year-round schools suck).

Anyways, I just wanted to say that I wish you much more luck in Toronto than I am having in LA! You completely deserve to meet the Gyllenhaal.

Can't wait to read all about how it goes!

<3 Rach

Prophecy Girl said...

Thank you, Nicole and Linna!! :D

And Rachel!!!!! Thank you so much for writing! I was just thinking about you the other day. :) I still have that picture of the four of us on my camera and I was remembering your letter and Moonlight Mile story...getting jealous all over again, of course. ;) Sorry school sucks, but seriously, I'm so glad you wrote! My expectations aren't that great, but I think ANYTHING would be more of a success than the Zodiac disaster! ;D

joycedavenport. said...

Hmm PG I suspect republican dirty tricks in the Jake in '08 myspace page deletion scandal (it's a scandal now because the republicans are involved- that's how it works isn't it?)

I think we need to hire us some good undercover people to sort this one out. I hear there are one or two CIA types with morals around. In fact I hear one of them maybe around in Toronto. Now all we need is some dosh to hire him. Either that or we tell him the story and he will be so morally outraged he will take up the case free...

Prophecy Girl said...

Joyce, I think you're onto something... I was asked by MySpace to confirm my identity with a picture of myself holding a handwritten sign with the Jake in '08 account ID. First of all, I'M NOT JAKE, so I don't know how my picture could possibly help prove anything. Secondly, I have no way of knowing the account ID without logging in...which I can't do since the profile was deleted!! Sounds like a Republican conspiracy if I've ever heard one. ;)

Seriously, I think this needs to be taken straight to the top.

Apparently Jakes already in Toronto,
LookGood Luck PG and looking forward to your review.

let's see how far we've come said...

PG you gooooooooooooo girl and make us all proud !

And it's okay you forgot to mention me ... *sigh* ... ;) As long as you remember me to JAKE ha ha ! ;)

Any chance you could email that picture to me? I'll bake you cookies if you're ever in LA again? (avgeek241@yahoo.com)

Gooooood luck again love! You find our man (and send him my way! just kidding... but seriously haha :) )
