Probably the Most Stalker-Like Post I've Ever Put Up

Are you ready for this?  I hope so, because here are the last 24 hours of Jake Gyllenhaal's life.

24 hours ago: Jake gets fresh with a fan who isn't me.  What the hell, man:

17 hours ago:  I live blog Jake's appearance on The Daily Show.  Recap and video in THIS POST.  (Note - This is the best part of the past 24 hours of Jake's life.)

7 hours ago:  Jake's appearance on Good Morning, America causes stage hands to faint and news anchors to giggle like nervous schoolgirls:

6 hours ago:  Jake ruins everything on Live with Regis and Kelly by accidentally-on-purpose proposing to Kelly's stand-in for the day:

4 hours ago:  Jake is hit full-on by the raybeams of the devil-eyed cherub waiting for him outside of ABC's studios:

3 hours ago:  While eating my lunch, I pause for a moment of silence to give my due props to whatever intern it is who is in charge of captioning Daily Show videos on Facebook:

Currently: I am posting this blog entry. (Note - This is the second-best part of the past 24 hours of Jake's life.)

I am the best Jake reporter on Earth.  Fact.

And this is one of your funniest posts FACT!

The past 24+ hours of ISJ have reminded me of the JW days. Thanks for the live blogs and seriously deserve a position in his PR team, cause yet again you have rocked the promotional blogging!

Plus...check out the baby blues in that first picture...yummy!

Impatiently waiting for The Movie Show to become available on ITV player, as I'm one of the very few people in the western world who doesn't have a TV. They're not getting it on quick enough...I want to see what the fuss is all about...excited for you! xx

^^^^ I totally agree, Clarabel!

I can't wait to hear about the ISJ promo on ITV2, you guys across the pond need to keep us in the loop. & if there is some link, please post it. >;-)

That was me in my devil-eyed cherub mask!

PG!!!! You're so awesome!!! Reading this is so much entertaining than watching Red Riding Hood and Sucker Punch combined! (sorry, i hope i did not offend movie fans of the two above-mentioned films)

Becky Heineke April 1, 2011 at 9:43 AM  

YAY! I have entertained people! This week has been a success. :) I had fun doing it, too. And hopefully I'll be seeing Source Code a little later today, which means a fun movie review in the near future! :)

(And fingers crossed for some good box office returns this weekend!)

Clarabel, I got excited for a second thinking I'd be able to watch The Movie Show online, but dammit, it's only for UK viewers. :( I'm sure it'll go by in a blink but nonetheless! I've never had my url on TV before!! If you could possibly snag a screenshot of it, that would be amazing...and if not, just a confirmation that it was there would be equally awesome. :)

Clarabel April 1, 2011 at 6:05 PM  

Eeek...finally it's up! And I'm seriously excited for you, will do my best to describe and share the excitement, but if someone wants to run me through how to do a screen capture (I use a mac) then I'll definitely give it my best shot to get it up for you all to see.

It is available on ITV player for the rest of the week for UK residents, although a friend of mine in Oz somehow watches BBC and ITV player by subscribing to a UK based IP address. Don't ask me how you do this, 'cause as you may have figured out I'm not very technically minded!

So here goes...

James King introduces the film, introducing it as the second film from Duncan Jones and gushes a little about Moon, complaining that this film is designed to be appealing to a much bigger audience, so has lost some of the zanyness, but is still worth a watch.

Cut to scene from the film where Jake is seeing himself as someone else in the mirror and denying knowledge of the MM just as the train blows up. Up pops a box with a fact about Duncan Jones, which I've forgotten, 'cause as soon as I realised that it wasn't about ISJ I began to panic a little that they wouldn't mention you, as all the other features only had one pop up box!!

Back to James King, waxing lyrical about how Jake has been off the boil in recent movies and worried about how he seems to have lost some of his early charm. That this needs to be a hit for him.

Next clip and up pops THE box, to quote


Diehard fans of Jake refer to themselves a Gyllenhaalics and regularly visit We're pretty much on there every day!"

And then I paused it to write this comment, went back to it and it had crashed!! So I'm waiting for it to buffer again to watch the rest of the review, but I've seen the most important bit....YAY BECKY!!!! Hope the hits and more importantly book sales have rocketed ;)

Becky Heineke April 1, 2011 at 6:51 PM  

AHHH!!! That's so exciting!! Even better than I thought it would be! We did have a spike in hits yesterday around the time it aired (YAY!) and I hope the url has lodged its way into the memory of every person who watched! :D (Fingers crossed that the people who clicked over like to read exciting memoirs... :))

If you have a Mac, then I can totally help you on the screencap. Hit command+shift+4 and a little target-looking thingy will pop up. You can hold down the mouse and drag it anywhere on your screen you want to create a picture; it'll snap the image as soon as you let up on the mouse.

Thank you so much for the report!!! I was dying yesterday knowing it was airing but I had no way of seeing it. My entire night has just been made! :D

Vanessa April 2, 2011 at 6:06 PM  

I totally LOVE that they said the Gyllenhaalics follow ISJ!!! Cool beans.

I want to be able to see that popup. Hopefully somebody from the UK can get a screencap for us eventually. Congrats for achieving that PG!
