The Pixel Project, kindly engaging in my delusions that I still have some sort of influence on the fan community, asked me to guest-blog on their site! The Pixel Project, as you may recall, is a charity organization working to bring awareness about violence against women, and Jake is one of 5 celebrities whom you can vote for as good Male Role Model. I was asked to explain, in 350 words or fewer, why Jake is a great choice. So...
...EXCITING GUEST-BLOGGING SPOT HERE.
(Strangely enough, they seem to have rejected my original blog title: "Why I Think of Jake Gyllenhaal When I Think of Violence Against Women.")
(Also, if you haven't yet signed the petition or voted then go for it because, again, these people think I actually have some sort of power and due to deep personal insecurities I'm not about to tell them otherwise. Voting ends June 17!)
Unrelated: The picture set posted earlier has now been expanded to include shots of Jake and Maroon 5 frontman/former Jake classmate Adam Levine. The PG from 2005 is freaking the hell out right now.
I was once close enough to Adam Levine at a concert that we were singing to each other. It is a memory I hold dear and I'm sure he does too (he was enthralled -- I'm very hot -- and later named an acoustic EP in honor of my 21st birthday). In fact, my best guess would be that Jake and Adam were discussing me while sitting in this car, since both of them have had the remarkable and much coveted experience of being in my presence.
Though looking at these pictures, I have to say that they are so much less cool without me...
But anyway, the point of this entry was to tell you about the Pixel Project thing. Which took me much longer to write than the post you just read. :)
