Jake Watch Posts That Never Were - HAPPY HALLOWEEN EDITION!


BPB to PG:  I was thinking of a Halloween Sunday Project but then I couldn't think of anything. Should we do a 'How to throw your own JW Halloween party'?? I'll need your help on the pics!! I want Jake as Casper the Friendly Ghost.

PG:  Heh.  Jake as Casper the Friendly Ghost!  I'll see what I can come up with.  What else were you thinking?  Snacks?  Decorations?  Guests?

BPB:  I'm not sure where I was actually going with my party idea - guests are a good idea. We need to draw up the fully-approved JW party guest list that covers the entire party spectrum. Erm, Jake gingerbread men or cakes or something? Song list....erm....what else?

PG:  Slight problem.  The media section of IHJ is down.  I wound up just sticking a Casper mask on Jake because the logistics of making him look like a cartoon/computer-generated ghost was more than I could do without some serious time to work on it.  I also did one of trying to make him look ghost-like, which might actually work since The Gilded Moose killed him off in the last post.  Neither is my best work but it was all I could come up with.  I like the second one better.


BPB:  Something about Casper's head on Jake's body is funny - can you try it the other way around - Jake's head on Casper's body? I'm imagining it already and it's sweet.

PG:  How's that?  Totally ridiculous, I know, but it is, indeed, Jake's head on Casper's body.  Casper is so oddly proportioned. 

BPB:  Casper - I forgot he had little ghost legs, he's so damn cute.

After a discussion in which britpopbaby decided she would be going as a pirate to our party and I decided to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the episode "Prophecy Girl"...

BPB:  Do you remember when Seth Green was in Buffy (obviously you do!!) I had THE biggest crush on him and then found out he was only 5 ft 4 and went off him.

PG:  Heh.  Yes, I remember when Seth Green was on Buffy.  I have Oz action figures.  You don't need to spread that around.  He is disappointingly short, though.  I was always a Spike girl myself and had a similar letdown when I found out he was 40, and not 28 as he'd been telling everyone.  Creepy.

BPB:  I also forgot how damn cute Sarah Michelle Gellar is. I have no idea where I'm going with this Halloween post - it might help if Jake had ever made a scary movie. Damn him!

PG:  I feel like this should have been easier and yet it seemed at every turn something was hindering the process.  Maybe God was trying to tell us something.


BPB:  I'll give some serious thought to the Halloween post tonight - I might go with Ghost Jake although some people may misinterpret it and think we're saying he's dead.


After all that, the post that britpopbaby wound up publishing on Jake Watch for Halloween had absolutely nothing to do with anything we talked about, and is HERE.

And that's why Jake Watch wore us out.

(THIS is the post I put up the following year.)


E-mail quotes above represent about one-third of our Halloween discussion.  We also discussed (at length), IHJ's seeming deferral to Stevey G, creating our own picture gallery with Coppermine (which neither of us could figure out), the idiots at WFT, why Jake is "just another person," why Cantara had never responded to my e-mail (yes, readers of the book, that e-mail; quote from me:  "I just can't help but feel like a fucking useless doormat here"), reader reaction the Gilded Moose interview, the movie script, Jake Weird, creating a LiveJournal account for Jake Watch, the Ted Casablanca parody that wouldn't be posted until nearly a month later, whether or not Brokeback Mountain was boring, how hard it was to keep up with the blog now that we both had full-time jobs, and Naomi.  That was a pretty typical three-day run for us...

Happy Halloween.

I vote for pics #2. A perfect solemn look.

Sasha,  October 31, 2010 at 12:25 PM  

Happy Halloween everybody :)

okay, completely off topic but I have a confession to make: suddenly I'm not that psyched anymore about LAOD.
And I don't even really know why - it's just gone ... *hummm*

joelliea October 31, 2010 at 12:43 PM  


Too much information? *guessing*. News and gossips are quite intensive out there.

Great Halloween post, PG! Love the Jake "ghost" you made & the Jake/Casper is just too funny. ^_^

Sooner or later, I am going to go back & read all of JW from the beginning. From the little I have read so far since discovering ISJ, it (& ISJ) are the bomb & I am so sorry I missed out on the JW days, but better late than never, like they say.

Happy Halloween to all who celebrate it! >;-)

Happy Halloween... I went out and got lollies just in case we had some kids come round... and none! So we ate them all! haha...

Sasha, i think it probably is a little bit of information overload. Why dont you boycott LAOD until you see it at the cinema, give you some time to get excited again!!!

Becky Heineke October 31, 2010 at 8:19 PM  

God, we had so much energy back then. Oh, the joys of youth! :D

Sasha, I think you speak for the group on this one. It is a bit of an overload right now...and it's all annoying stuff. There's the Taylor crap, the official people being weird to us on Facebook, Jake looking like a homeless person on the cover of Esquire...

Come to think of it, it all kind of makes me long for the days when all I had to worry about was how well Jake's head fit onto Casper's body...

Becky Heineke October 31, 2010 at 8:19 PM  

OK, Sam and I kind of posted at the same time and kind of said the same thing. :) At least we're all in agreement!! :D

Lola,  October 31, 2010 at 11:14 PM  

Hey, speak for yourself sweatheart. I'm still totally excited to see Jake's ass in LAOD. I was wondering why wont it let me read Jake watch:the movie on myspace? Do I need an account to read it?

Sasha,  November 1, 2010 at 2:56 AM  

@joelliea @Sam @PG yaaa you might be right that it's just too much at a time, and sadly not all "good" ... but weird ...

PG: Esquire Magazine??? I totally missed out on that picture ... but looking homeless I'm not even sure I wanna see it ROFL ... nah I DO

But yeah I guess I will step back a little - I have time until 6th Jan (prem in germany seems) ... maybe it'll be back by then

Becky Heineke November 1, 2010 at 8:22 AM  

Lola, the full movie script was actually up on LiveJournal, but (for a lot of reasons) I took it down. There's a post about it HERE.

Sasha, I'm holding out for a transcript of the actual interview in Esquire to see if I want to do a post on it... The cover isHERE. ;)

Sasha,  November 1, 2010 at 10:08 AM  

oy thx PG ... erm I'm not sure what I think about the picture of Jake - he looks good to me but it seems like the suit is a bit to big ... 8) which makes the whole picture looking a bit weird and his posing is a bit erm I dont know "odd"???

on another note I scrolled down a little to much and there is gif/video (like 3-4sec long) of Robert Downey Jr - funny

How exciting, i will certainly take a look at the new blog!

It seems I'm on the right track, I hope I can do well. The result was something I did and was doing to implement it.
