Prophecy Girl Finally Posts About Vampire Weekend's "Giving Up The Gun" Video

JAKE GYLLENHAAL.  A man of many talents.  He competently opens car doors.  He grows man-beards.  He's even been known to use his legs to walk from one place to another

And we can add to this varied and impressive list of marketable skills that he sometimes shows up drunk in other people's music videos.  We'll talk about the first time he did this in another post.  (That time wasn't so bad actually, what with the party atmosphere and the song being about a-a-a-a-a-al-co-hol anyway.)

The second time, though...

Jesus help me through my recap of what happened with the second time...

TRUE STORY:  I'm gone.  I'm off on my hiatus.  Jake's...not handling it well.  (He and I are terribly close, as you all know, and basically I only do this blog to make him feel better about how completely obsessed he is with me.)

Without my wholesome influence, Jake starts going a little crazy.  Like, oh, I don't know, he starts wearing plaid.

And just like that, he suddenly has a bunch of musician friends that he just doesn't bother to tell me about.

Plaid + Musicians = I start hearing stories about Jake.  Wild shit.  It's all TENNIS AND BOOZE for Gylls now.

But at least he's keeping it on the down low.

So I'm sitting at home one night, editing Chapter 3 of my book (actual chapter title:  "Jake Watch Was Not My Creation; I Just Attached Myself to It with Leech-Like Enthusiasm"), and I'm like, 'Hey, maybe I should take a break and see if Vampire Weekend has put out any new music videos today.'

And what do you know?  They had.

So I'm watching the video for "Giving Up The Gun," rocking along, really getting into it because I'm way into all-white curtains and red vests, and then, about 30 seconds in, this random Jonas brother shows up.  And I'm freaking out, right?  Not because I'm crushing on whichever-the-hell brother that is, but because Vampire Weekend must have blown their entire guest star budget on this guy.

I'm still into it, though...

Some other people show up in the video (but they're not famous, 'cause of what I said about the guest star budget) and we're going along...going along...this song is it's better than awesome...

And then...



And I should have known.  Because I already knew about the tennis and the flask.  BUT STILL.  I could only sit back and watch...

2:03 - He's playing tennis.  Of course he is.  Wearing a headband.  And God help me, recovering Jake addict that I am, I think the 80s headgear is kind of hot...

2:08 - Five seconds in, he's already drinking.  And I get it, because I'm drinking too now.  Work that bottle, Jake.  Work it.

2:09 - Shot cuts away.  And I get that, too.  Maybe the camera man doesn't want to see Jake like this.


2:17 - Luckily for me, the camera guy can't stay away.  Jake makes a slashing motion across his neck, which was always his secret signal to me, meaning, "Prophecy Girl, is that you playing tennis against me right now?"

2:20 - Another cut-away.  I take the opportunity to tell Jake that it is not me he's playing tennis against, but I understand the confusion, as I, too, am (moderately) athletic and have (moderately) red hair.

But I'm pretty sure Jake still thinks it's me.

2:23 - Because that's the only explanation as to why he takes his pants off.  Just like that.  Off they go, with a flourish meant to impress.

Am I impressed?

2:24 - Not yet.

2:25 - Underneath the pants are tiny, jolly tennis shorts that show off his muscular man-legs and match the headband.

NOW I'm impressed.

2:30 - Jake serves the tennis ball.

2:34 - Jake hits the tennis ball.

2:43 - Dear God, he's got the hooch out again... 

2:46 - Now he's drinking and playing tennis at the same time.  Is it hot in here to anyone else?

2:52 - The alcohol has improved his game (double meaning intended).

2:54 - Jake has nearly finished off his bottle (though he's got nothing on me -- I finished my bottle when he took his pants off).

(At this point, I'm starting to think maybe I was overreacting.  Maybe the tennis and the drinking are working out all right for him.  At the very least, they've improved his fashion sense.)

3:00 - He's still up.  He's still playing...

3:02 - ...though not well.

3:06 - OH.  Man down!

3:10 - Jake uses his tennis shorts as his racket.  Christ. 

3:12 - And he's really down now. OH JAKE.

3:16 - Match over.  Jake shakes hands with the girl he thinks is me...

3:18 - ...and hugs the girl he thinks is me...

3:20 - ...and is so overcome that he drags the girl he thinks is me over the net and onto the ground with him.

And then there's more of the video, but I was too distressed to continue watching.

And so I thought, 'Dammit, if he misses me that much then I'll just start blogging about him again.' 

And so I did.  And look at that, he hasn't touched a tennis racket since.

And thank you to the many, many people who have sent me this video!! :)

Call Me Mo July 9, 2010 at 11:19 AM  

My 3 year old nephew made me rewind the video like 5 times when it played on Fuse one day. I'm not sure if it was because of the song or Jake. I pretended it was the latter. =]

Becky Heineke July 9, 2010 at 12:24 PM  

Another Jake fan born!! (Although either way, he has good taste. :D)

Vanessa,  July 9, 2010 at 1:00 PM  

OMG, PG, this is Jake's E! True Hollywood Story showing his fall from grace when you disappeared on him for awhile. He really started partying hard with that wild Hollywood crowd as we saw in the OTHER video... & good lord, WTF happened to make him think he could pull off plaid? Oh wait, it's The Gyllenhaal we're talking about, he can literally pull off wearing ANYTHING, even a Santa hat... >;-)

Not to mention he can literally "pull off" his clothes ANYTIME he damn well wants to, ha!

Nothing Really Matters July 9, 2010 at 1:02 PM  

I fricking love this song and video!

Vanessa,  July 9, 2010 at 1:32 PM  

This is off topic, but I just had to report that I finally saw Moonlight Mile last night & loved it. I need to change my top 5 Jake movies now, I do believe. That movie was incredible. He just seems to have chemistry with every co-star he falls in love with, huh?

Still need to watch Highway though. I don't know, that pic of him you posted from it, looks like it could also become a favorite. We shall see...

Anonymous,  July 9, 2010 at 2:29 PM  

THANK YOU for this :D

Anonymous,  July 9, 2010 at 2:32 PM  

Please, please don't ever go away again, PG, I would not survive more plaid shirts, especially not those with the embroidered birds. I still have nightmares about those. *shudders*

Loved your recap and that gif is amazing!


Call Me Mo July 9, 2010 at 2:42 PM  

O.M.G. So it's from last year, but it's Jake eating a bagel. I die.

He totally knows who Jake is. I've brainwashed him. :D

KD,  July 9, 2010 at 3:42 PM  

While I appreciated Jake in the a-a-alcho-a-a-a-a-l-l video (good grief, did I even spell that correctly? All these hyphens confuse the shit out of me), he did look PRETTY DAMN FINE in that "Giving Up the Gun" music video. (Though clearly Jake and I do not have the same taste in music.)

Does anyone notice how ridiculously hot Jake looks in that picture in which he wears plaid? (And speaking of plaid, I have a VERY SIMILAR IF NOT THE SAME SHIRT. Thus concluding that Jake and I DO have the same taste in clothing. Jake, please tell me you like Lemonade by Chris Rice?)

And TOTALLY TRUE STORY, PG - when I watched that video I totally knew he was thinking of you the ENTIRE TIME. Did you see how much vigor he put into serving you his balls. ;D

KD,  July 9, 2010 at 3:47 PM  

Call Me Mo - Can't view the picture. ):

Vanessa - I remember the first time I watched Moonlight Mile. I fell in LOVE. He was so sensitive, emotionally damaged in that film that I tried a little on the inside each and every time I watch it. I just recently re watched October Sky, and boy, it take a very powerful film to make me FORGET I'M WATCHING IT FOR JAKE. He just blends so seamlessly into the film itself that the entire film is a standout, as opposed to Jake stealing the spotlight (like he does in most films!) I don't know if I could stomach watching Highway. I've never watched it before, but it looks like such a cheesy movie...

Becky Heineke July 9, 2010 at 4:00 PM  

KD, try HERE (WHY TINY, Blogger? *sad face*)

And on that note, FUCK YES, BAGEL. HELLZ to the fuck yes. Amazing find, Mo.

KD, you've made me blush, but only because you speak the truth and I'm sometimes a little self-conscious about how Jake just constantly throws himself at me...

RE embroidered birds...there might have to be an entire post devoted to that subject at some point because what even WAS that?! Again, notice that such insanity has disappeared now that I'm back. ;D

FACT: Highway is the only pre-2007 Jake movie that I do not own. Another FACT: Now I feel like I should watch Moonlight Mile again. Viewing party!

Vanessa,  July 9, 2010 at 4:14 PM  

KD, I don't know enough about Highway, but it looks so totally bizarre & I thoroughly enjoy bizarre films, (Being John Malkovich, Fear & Loathing in LV, Donnie Darko, etc), so I figure it will be one I will most likely add to my list of faves. Yeah right, what list? So far, Jakey's movies are ALL my faves, so what's a girl to do? Sit back & enjoy the ride with Gylls, that is all. Yeah baby.

MM is heartbreakingly beautiful, I thought. Loved all the performances in it, but was pleasantly surprised by Ellen Pompeo. I don't watch Grey's Anatomy, & I don't remember her characters in the other movies I have seen her in, Catch me if you can & Daredevil. Anyway, that whole dinner table dialog by Joe was priceless. That scene will forever be one of my favorites now.

Sam July 9, 2010 at 4:40 PM  

Im so glad you're back PG, It would have been really hard to handle watching Jake mosey around in those undies, drunk and galivanting into music videos. He really needs you to keep in on the straight and narrow.

Although you can allow him to wear less clothing doing every day chores that the paps catch. Shitless is a good idea, can you pass that on for me?

Anonymous,  July 9, 2010 at 4:42 PM  

OMG, how cute is he in his bagel eater role!! Aaah, I melt.
But what is he carrying under his arm??? Is that a tutu?!?!?

Becky Heineke July 9, 2010 at 4:59 PM  

^^^ It DOES look like a tutu! Must be part of his outfit for the double life he leads that sumi k let us in on!!

Speaking of clothing, Sam, message received and consider it PASSED ALONG. He needs a little guidance now and then and I'm always glad to offer wardrobe advice... ;D

Call Me Mo July 9, 2010 at 5:04 PM  

My bad, KD. I always assume people keep their IHJ media page obsessively logged in. *cough* Anywho, here's a non-tiny Jake eating a bagel pic. Enjoy.

Also, Highway is the shiznit! You have to see it if you haven't. Pilot is a total philosopher.

Anonymous,  July 9, 2010 at 5:22 PM  

Good thing you came back when you did PG, our boy was clearly speeding down disaster highway. Forget LiLo, the headlines would've been "drunk Jake Yillenhoolahay smashes Federer's gear while wearing a ballet outfit, then checks into a transgender clinic"...

Vanessa,  July 9, 2010 at 5:44 PM  

OMFG, Lena!!! That comment is priceless. I'm still LMAO!

You guys have made my day bearable ONCE again... Thank you.

Go Team Yillenhoolahay!

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 9, 2010 at 5:54 PM  

OMG, you guys -- you MUST watch HIGHWAY!! Jake will bring both the mother and the cougar (and the slut?) in all of you. I speak from experience. He is totally adorable and totally different from anything else you've ever seen him in! But God, at the tender age he still can get the "more mature" hormones flowing!! Oh...I feel faint again...!

Anonymous,  July 9, 2010 at 6:03 PM  

Haha, he always brings out the mother and the slut in me. Especially those early movies when he's still all dorky and super sweet and you just want to hug him&squeeze him, and you think what an adorable brother he'd make, all the while wanting to fck his brains out...

Becky Heineke July 9, 2010 at 6:23 PM  

Two in a ROW. Lena, you are today's COMMENT WIN.

Anonymous,  July 9, 2010 at 6:40 PM  

Aaah, thanks! But all credit goes to Yillenhoolahay, he brings out the nutter inside me.

PG, you might want to update Jake's projects, he already did "Going for a Walk", "Buying Groceries" and "Eating a Bagel". What's next for our hero??

Becky Heineke July 9, 2010 at 6:59 PM  

THIS is the question. He's been working so hard lately, knocking all these projects off his list, that I'm going to have to consult with him on what's next. I've been trying to talk him into buying a newspaper but he hasn't committed to anything yet...

KD,  July 9, 2010 at 7:15 PM  

Thanks Call Me Mo and PG for the bagel link! It is very adorable.

Ack, all this praise for Highway. I guess I SHOULD watch it then. I will be sure to Netflix it when I return in a month.

PG, I made you blush? My bad. It's just sad how hard (cough) Jake pines for you all the time. Truth be told, I get a little embarrassed for you just thinking about it!

Jake can get hormones flowing from ALL ages ladies. After browsing IHJ for some Jake pictures, it makes me laugh how both similar and dissimilar Jake 1999-2002 is from Jake circa 2007-2010. Jake from 2003-2005 is sort of his transitional period in terms of looks. It makes me giggle thinking about how Homer Hickam would one day grow up to become Prince Dastan. Ahhh.

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 9, 2010 at 7:58 PM  

Okay, ladies, I am first in line to f*ck his brains out. I am old and I don't think my heart could stand the wait in line, and I'm sure you don't want that on your heads! My friend and I just finished MOONLIGHT MILE, are going out to have a much needed cigarette and back in for HIGHWAY. You all must see my Naked Jake and you will understand my affliction...I mean affection for the YOUNG Jake, sigh! Happy hormones, all!

Dani July 9, 2010 at 9:08 PM  

I actually had to take my time to comment on this post... even now, a few hours after 1st reading it, I can't stop giggling and smiling.
I believe this is your best post yet and OMG! I have no words to comment without being biased by Jake's performance.

I just want to say: HOW?! WHEN?! WHERE?! WHY?! WHAT?!! I BET HE DID IT FOR FREE!!

Becky Heineke July 9, 2010 at 9:19 PM  

^^^ HA!!! And thank you!! ;D He DID do it for free. :) I believe it was February of this year that it was filmed. And he got involved because he's a fan of the band (AGAIN, I say to you, Jake -- you know how you're always hanging out with the people you're a fan of? Let's make this happen in reverse, buddy.) There's a bit more, including a video of him talking about how he got involved, HERE. :D

In not-really-related news...and now *I* just finished watching Moonlight Mile. :) At the risk of making you all think less of me, it's been a long time since I've seen most of Jake's movies. I sort of overloaded back in 2006 and...well...that was probably the last time I saw MM.

I couldn't get over how young he looked! KD, I love what you said about early!Jake growing into current!Jake. :D So true...who would have ever thought?! Case in point, MM Jake had zero chest hair. I guess those were the days before his testosterone levels spiked and he could grow a full beard in 24 hours. ;)

Vanessa,  July 9, 2010 at 9:40 PM  

Wow, just saw Highway for the 1st time & can say it will be the 1st of MANY viewings. I LOVED THIS MOVIE! Pilot stole my heart. It didn't hurt to have extra eye candy with Jared, either. KD, you must see this movie, it is definitely a keeper.

There is only one Jake movie I still have not seen all of & that is Lovely & Amazing. Saw Jake's bits only & OMG, Jordan is SO charming & kinda looks like Pilot but with black hair, such a cutie. He is just so endearing the way he flirts with Michelle, (Catherine Keener). The main drawback to this movie is there's definitely not near enough of Gylls in it.

Wow, I do believe I will make this an all Jake movie weekend. Seeing PoP one last time this weekend too, it's "amazingly" still playing here... >;-)

Vanessa,  July 9, 2010 at 9:56 PM  

Thanks PG for the link to Jake telling about his involvement in the video. Haha, they call him "the John McEnroe of action films". He is just too cool, I think I love him even more now, if that's possible.

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 9, 2010 at 11:00 PM  

We just finished HIGHWAY, too. I just never get tired of watching Jake as Pilot. Insane!

KD,  July 10, 2010 at 1:02 AM  


Highway will be the first on my list when I return from my month abroad. I always liked Selma Blair in any case, so that will be an added bonus.

OMG, I haven't watched Moonlight Mile in forever. All ya'll talking about it again makes me yearn to see it as well. It will be after Highway.

Vanessa - I have a link where you can watch Lovely & Amazing if you want it! I usually netflix my movies or record them on my DVR, but sometimes...Ahahaa. Lovely & Amazing was an alright movie. Jake was definitely the best part.

PG - If I analyzed his photos over the years correctly, then I'd say Jake began growing chest hair somewhere around 2005 to 2006. Maybe some early signs in 2004, MAYBE. That, or he was just waxing it off before! OH THE LAUGH IF HE WAS.

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 1:06 AM  

If you do not want to invest an hour and a half in LOVELY & AMAZING, you can go to YouTube and there is a video with Jake's parts (?) only. I showed it tonight to my friend between MOONLIGHT MILE and HIGHWAY. Just a suggestion!

KD,  July 10, 2010 at 1:14 AM  

Gyllenhaalisgrl8 - I have that video as a favorite on YouTube already. Hahaaa.

Vanessa,  July 10, 2010 at 2:03 AM  

Thanks guys, I actually have the whole movie on my laptop as an avi, but couldn't stop myself from just fast forwarding thru it to just his parts & made 6 clips of just him. He is just too cute especially when the cop arrests Michelle & he tries to convince him they are in a relationship. I thought I might go back & watch the whole movie eventually if I could get my mind off Jakey long enough. I actually like Emily Mortimer & Dermot Mulroney as actors.

I had to watch one more tonight, Jarhead. I haven't watched it for a few years now & I almost forgot how really great he was in it, & not JUST for the Santa hat dance either! heehee... But of course THAT scene is always a good reason to break out JH! >;-)

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 2:31 AM  

Nobody likes a smarty-pants, KD! Just kidding!! I love you, gals -- Gyllengaals!!!

Vanessa,  July 10, 2010 at 2:49 AM  

Hahaha, I love it, that's perfect!

That's us alright, "The Gyllengaals"!!!

Thanks, gyllenhaalisgr8!

I'm out for the night, be back here tomorrow for more Gyllenfun!

KD,  July 10, 2010 at 4:10 AM  

"Gyllenfun". I think I just fell in love, Vanessa. Does anyone know how to make a heart on here? I need to properly confess.

Gyllenhaalisgr8- I JUST REALIZED THAT I HAVE BEEN SPELLING YOUR USERNAME WRONG THE ENTIRE TIME. MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES. I always thought it was "GyllenhaalisGRL8" for some bizarre reason. What brain, what.

Vanessa - Don't feel bad. I watched Lovely & Amazing all the way through once and now I just skip scenes and get to the ones with Jake. I do that with a lot of the films in which he does not play a central character, as terrible as that sounds. Rendition, for example, and The Day After Tomorrow.

Does anyone notice how the comments on this site always seem to deviate from the original topic? Just an observation. Lol!

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 8:28 AM  

That's all right, DK, because I must apologize that I NEVER NOTICED, lol!

Becky Heineke July 10, 2010 at 8:48 AM  

(A) I love off-topic conversations. :D

(B) I love even more that one of our off-topic conversations is about when Jake started growing chest hair. (The thought of him waxing his chest is so lulzy I'm still snickering!!!)

(C) The scene in Lovely and Amazing where Jake hires Catherine Keener = one of the best things ever.

That is all. :)

KD,  July 10, 2010 at 11:04 AM  

The way he raises his eyebrows during that scene, PG, is one of my favorites. I prefer him with more shapely and trimmed eyebrows. Yum.

Chest hair can be one of man's greatest gifts or one of man's most terrible vices.

:| I've seen so many men with chest hair gone wrong.

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 11:08 AM  

Robin Williams: HAIR GONE WILD!

Becky Heineke July 10, 2010 at 11:59 AM  

There is NOTHING BUT TRUTH in these two comments. :D

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 3:18 PM  

KD's eyebrow comment reminded me of the pics in which errant remnants of a unibrow are visible on Jake's pretty head. There aren't too many, but whenever I work with these photos, I lovingly airbrush any unibrow stubble, as well as temporary pubescent blemishes, out of sight (I've also been known to clean up "beard neck"). Jake's photos will always be as perfect as can be on my watch -- just one of the many services I offer, LOL!

Leslie July 10, 2010 at 3:48 PM  

Isn't anyone going to watch Bubble Boy?!?!? ;P

Vanessa,  July 10, 2010 at 4:37 PM  

Hey Leslie, I did watch BB this morning! I put myself in Gyllenhaal overdrive last night & woke up this morning intending to continue on in my quest for Jake overdose. I am almost there, I do believe.

Tomorrow, it will be PoP once again, sorry all you guys that aren't into that movie, it will go down in my books as my all time favorite Jake movie, aside from BBM. He looks INCREDIBLE in it, not to mention amazingly charming. >;-)

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 7:27 PM  

Okay. So I'm watching HIGHWAY for the second night in a row, right? And, yeah, I'm going frame by frame to take a pic of Pilot getting out of bed in his underwear. And what did I notice? Pilot removes a GRAY RABBIT PUPPET from his left hand. Never noticed that before. HIGHWAY was made two years after DONNIE DARKO. I wonder if Jake had the puppet prop and said, "Wow, another gray rabbit!" Or not...!

Vanessa,  July 10, 2010 at 9:03 PM  

How funny, I need to go back & watch that scene again now. Gray rabbit indeed. It must have been a nod to DD.

I just watched the whole movie of Lovely & Amazing. It was alright, but Gylls is truly the only real reason I would ever care to watch any of the scenes again. He is so charming when he is hiring Michelle. Oh to be 17 again & run into Jordan, I would be so in love.

OK, now on to check out that scene in Highway, you got my curiosity up! I ADORE Pilot, this will definitely be one I will be watching over & over again. >;-)

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 10, 2010 at 9:35 PM  

I know, Vanessa. Lovely & Amazing is actually a depressing movie, albeit for Jake, but it's never quite a super Jake movie unless he has a love scene. And poor Pilot never was able to get it up it seems. Too many drugs or "sexual confusion"? For great love scenes with my young Jake, The Good Girl gets my vote! Oh, my...that sweet face and velvety I go again!!

Vanessa,  July 10, 2010 at 10:44 PM  

OMG, I know, right? That sex scene in GG is too hot. That should be ME! I am still stuck in Gyllenlaand & can't (really won't) leave.

I am now into watching the director's cut of DD which I haven't seen yet. I have seen the orig theatrical cut a dozen times over the years, but just recently got my hot little hands on the blu ray of DD.

Next on the menu, tDaT on YOU GUESSED IT, blu ray!!! I've had the orig DVD since 05, but really want to update everything to gorgeous blu ray now. Only the Gylls is worth that extra money. OK, I am seriously getting concerned about my Gyllenhealth. Naw, what better way to go down than with Jakey? >;-)

Leslie July 10, 2010 at 11:32 PM  

I converted all my JBG to blu-ray and . . when you're watching Jarhead and it's the shower scene . . make sure you run that on slow motion. ;D

Sam July 11, 2010 at 6:08 AM  

Love it PG, another crack up!

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 11, 2010 at 6:25 AM  

I got the Director's Cut DD after the original DD and I never watch it because the original has Jake on the commentary, and sometimes I just like to watch the movie hearing him talk. His voice is mesmerizing. If you don't have "The Man Who Walked Between the Towers", save your money -- it's ten minutes and on YouTube and it's all Jake and that dreamy voice. It's in my favorites, naturally!

Vanessa,  July 11, 2010 at 11:05 AM  

I know what you mean, gyllenhaalisgr8, I ADORE listening to his voice, so yeah, I too have that saved to my favorites on youtube & even snagged a download of it... (I must confess, I have quite the Gyllenlibrary on my laptop) OK, OK, I admit it, I'm a Gyllenhog... >;-)

I actually love that story of Philippe Petit, it is very poignant to me after what happened to the WTC.

OK, I get too emotional when I think about that, so on to something less heavy. PoP one more time today, yippee!!!

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 11, 2010 at 12:00 PM  

Heading out to pick up my reserved Hallmark Dastan ornament. My mantle is going to be gyllefied now, too. Then I will watch JH in slowmo to see if I can catch some photos. I have one tastefully diffused pic of Jake's manhood but maybe I can do better...we will see!

Vanessa,  July 11, 2010 at 12:29 PM  

Oh my yes, PLEASE, gyllenhaalisgr8! That would be such a tasty treat, I so admire your talent with the Gylls treasures... Oh gawd, I am going to make myself totally gyllinsane. But what better way to enjoy life, right? He just makes it too easy with strutting his stuff everywhere & not being camera shy. Hopefully you will have LOTS more to play with after L&OD comes out in a few. Eeep, my heart may not be able to handle that much of him!!! Naw, I say BRING IT ON! >;-)

Becky Heineke July 11, 2010 at 1:19 PM  

gyllenhaalisgr8, I meant to ask you about the ornament (since I knew it was supposed to be out on the 10th). Let us know how he is! :D

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 11, 2010 at 2:45 PM  

Hallmark Dastan is very nice! Here's the plan. Tomorrow I take my autographed Dastan photo into Hobby Lobby for custom framing (probably a two-week wait!). Then he replaces the hibiscus over the fireplace! Next to that will hang the tricked-out dagger of time and a cool metallic jewelry thingie I made to compliment all of his chains. On the mantle will go the Hallmark Dastan on an ornament hook (for year-round display), the PoP Lego Dastans and the McFarlane Dastans (I have to find some mirrors to putty them to so he doesn't fall down!). THEN I will take a pic!

PG, perhaps you could change my sidebar link from Jake Junk to Gyllenhaal Treasures? I chose Jake Junk 1) because the original photo was a close-up of little Commando Jake and 2) because I know how much Jake loves alliteration. But my stuff is really more treasures than junk, per se. That do you think?

Today I will probably put all of my Jake videos onto individual DVDs; I have ones already done with them all together so we can watch them all on the 50" TV! There must be around 30. My last two were to the Everly Brothers and a 60 year old DJ in Florida asked if he could show them to a large group of EB fans and said he understood why I used those songs to honor Jake. How cool was that (his original comment on YouTube was simply, "WOW.")?! So it's off to slave over a Hot Jake (oh, the humanity!)....

Becky Heineke July 11, 2010 at 6:39 PM  

You are a woman with a plan!! As always, we shall await the finished pictures! :D

And check on the name change. It's rechristened! ;)

Oh yeah! I can't wait to see your mantel! This is so fun to have other wayward Gyllengaals to share the Gyllenlust with... Heehee, I just can't get my mind on ANYTHING else today.

& what is this "commando" Jake??? Where did you find that Gyllenjunk?
OK, I'll take some of that Jake "JUNK" anytime!!! >;-)

It was on one of the Jake Bulge websites, titled "Jake takes his penis for a walk" or something similar. It is also my cell phone pic, hehehe! I will run and put it in the treasures for you -- definitely worth lifting (no pun intended)!

OMG, thank you, woman! I am still laughing at that title, "Jake takes his penis for a walk"!

Your pics are truly REAL treasures & LOVE the cardboard Jake, I want one! That is too funny, I belong to a fan site for Gerry Butler, (I know, I cheat), & a bunch of the Gerry fans made a life size standee of him like that (only he had clothes on) & called him "Flat Gerry". Haha, that just always cracked me up.

My six-foot Dream Date Jake has clothes on...the suit from the LA Premiere of PoP. I just switched heads (from the same night) cuz I love that tongue (and its potential)!
