Prophecy Girl Live Blogs Jake on Conan!

This should be extra-exciting because I have yet to watch Conan on his new network/time!  This is what happens when "hip" television personalities are pitted against The Daily Show.  Us youth voters become confused and just start going to bed early...

Hey, here's an unrelated recent picture of Jake looking strapping and masculine because instead of tying his shirt around his waist, like a pansy ass would, he's slung it over his shoulder, like a real man:


Here we go.

10:00 - Oops, I missed the first part because I was watching the tail end of The Soup on E!  Oh, that Joel McHale.  Always good for a giggle.

10:01 - Last of opening credits.  Thank God Jake is actually going to be on.  (Otherwise this blog could get awkward.)

10:07 - A new study finds that women start to feel old at 29.  For men, that age is 58.  As a twenty-nine-year-old female, I am now sad about society.  And I feel old.

10:12 - Conan admits that he never said that this was going to be an amazing show tonight

10:13 - "Big star" Jake Gyllenhaal will be on...later!  (In terms of applause enthusiasm, Jake is decidedly third after Randy Jackson and Panic at the Disco.)

10:17 - "Jake Gyllenhaal coming up very soon."  True story, all of the oil leaked out of my car yesterday, so I had to get up super early this morning to take it to the shop and I lost my entire day waiting on repairs and now I'm very tired.  So I'm really glad that Jake is always first on these shows (so I can go to bed, because it's all about me).  I wonder if that's because he requests that or because he's unerringly less famous than the other guests he shares the show with...

Whoa.  Deep thoughts there...

10:30 - It's young Jacob!  (And, as an aside, fuck him for looking so good right now.)

10:31 - Jackie the Stage Manager has told Jake, backstage, that Conan (who - see four time stamps above - has already said this is going to be a substandard show) is not excited at all to interview this Jake Gyllenhaal person.  Conan rebuts by insisting that every time he's ever seen Jake scampering around Hollywood, Jake has been "friendly."

No, wait, Conan amends, friendly "as celebrities go."

No, wait, PG amends from her living room, friendly "to other celebrities as celebrities go."

10:31 - Dude totally name-drops his own sister.  That's the patented Jake Gyllenhaal cue that this interview has officially started.

10:32 - Conan and Jake discuss the infamous beard-smelling incident of 2007, which JESUS was four years ago now and I'm still live blogging this shit.  (No wonder I feel old.)

10:33 - Jake tells a story about going to a restaurant one time and eating next to people with beards who talked like ship captains from the 1800s.  Later in the story, these people will speak with Irish (?) accents.  I'm not sure where this is going, but I cannot look away

10:35 - Much as Jake recently told us, through humor, that sometimes people think he's gay, Jake tells us, through humor, that people thought he was depressed when he grew that enormous beard over the summer.  But neither thing was true!  In the case of the beard, he just didn't shave.

10:35 - And sometimes women who don't shave also grow beards.  (WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED WITH THIS STORY I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND.)

10:36 - Commercial break.

10:39 - And we're back!

10:39 - Movie talk.  Source Code is pretty effing sweet according to the two people now on television being paid to promote it.

10:40 - Jake explains that Ang Lee and Duncan Jones are, like, the exact same person, because they're both Asian sons of David Bowie.

10:41 - Jake tells how Duncan Jones used to keep him disoriented on set by putting an earwig in his ear and playing "Send in the Clowns."  Send in the Clowns?  SEND IN THE CLOWNS?!  THAT WAS ONLY THE THEME SONG OF THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW NEVER DIES.  This means that Duncan Jones has read the script and wants to turn it into a movie.

10:41 - Movie clip!  Oh, wait.  Dammit, I've already seen this clip.  I've seen one goddamned clip from this movie and it's this one...

10:43 - Er, I think maybe Jake is kind of giving too much of the story away.  I don't want to know anything!  I want to go and be like, what the hell is this movie I just paid to see????

10:43 - And it's OVER!

Whew!  That live blogging thing is always harder than I think it's going to be when I haven't done it in a while.  We'll try this again in two days with The Daily Show!

I also have 29 years and sometimes I feel old.

which JESUS was four years ago now and I'm still live blogging this shit. (No wonder I feel old.)

Same here! hahahahaha

I have not seen the show. Thank you!

I have it DVR'd at home, but your recap seems much more exciting.

In other news, I attempted to go to an early screening last night, but Summit is douchey and gave out like 1000 tickets to the screening and I did not get in. Bastards. I spent the rest of the night pissed that I drove clear across town and wasted my $3.75 a gallon gas.

Becky Heineke March 29, 2011 at 5:01 PM  

I hope both of you have gotten a chance to watch it! I didn't feel it was nearly as good as the Jimmy Kimmel interview, but it still had its moments...moments I probably overlooked while I was scrambling to keep up with writing and listening at the same time.

Mo, I'm sorry the advance viewing didn't work out. :( That seriously sucks. I don't think any of us have seen it yet so basically I take that as Summit snubbing our entire community...

Becky Heineke March 29, 2011 at 5:01 PM  

Oh, and...

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR UK VIEWERS: You must watch The Movie Show on ITV2 on Thursday.

The end.

THANK YOU, PG, for this! It was fun to read, although I did see it live last night too. & I agree JK was a much better interview by far. Jake was trying to finish his anecdote about Duncan playing weird songs in his ear during filming & Conan totally interrupted him before he finished. He finally said something about having to hear Sade in his ear, but I don't know if that was the end of his story or not, damn Conan.

I did like the part about him noticing guys with beards have some kind of unseen connection & migrate towards each other, (or at least, that's what I got out of that). Ginger beard, love it.

Wow, Mo, that totally sucks, & I feel for you, as that same shit has happened to me before with other movies. What really pissed me off, was I have been getting free prescreening tickets to every freakin' movie in the past 6 months, EXCEPT LAOD & SC. & I actually had the opportunity to get both & missed out on both. WTF??? It's almost like they just knew how bad I wanted them, so I was screwed from the get go.

Yeah, PG, it so does look like Summit has messed with this Jake blog, since I noticed that readers on OTHER Jake blogs have actually seen SC already. Bitches. >;-P

PG - one word- AWESOME!! That was bloody brilliant, I had to remind myself that it is 2011 cause I totally felt like I was reading Jake watch a few years ago!!

One thing... You tube link? Or something? I don't have a computer and my iPhone isn't the best for researching... Anyone? Pretty please?

Becky Heineke March 30, 2011 at 9:31 AM  

Sam! What an oversight! I apologize for not updating with the YouTube vid earlier. It's now at the bottom of the post, though, unfortunately, only the first half of the interview made it online.

If anyone has a link to the second half, it would be much appreciated! :)

Vanessa, I'm sorry for your bad luck!!! What the hell is with all the misses?! :( But in happier news, I'm totally serious about the ITV2 thing for our British comrades. They're doing a segment on Source Code tomorrow and (fingers crossed) ISJ is going to be featured in a pop-up in the middle of it! The global domination continues. :D

Vanessa March 30, 2011 at 9:45 AM  

Hang on for a bit, I will upload the whole Jake interview from Conan on the ISJ youtube channel & PG can post it here when it's ready. BRB.

Becky Heineke March 30, 2011 at 10:13 AM  

^^^ You are amazing. THANK YOU!!! :)

Vanessa March 30, 2011 at 10:39 AM  

PG, I just uploaded the 2nd part that was not included in that other one, just to get it up there faster. I will upload the entire interview shortly, I am just afraid YT will take it down as soon as I get it up though. So, if you can embed the 2nd part I just uploaded, hopefully everyone can see the rest of it for now.

Dude! This post is so many kinds of awesome I don't even!
