Sole Stirrer

It's Old Bay all over again. Whaaaat?

David Fincher is known for his attention to detail and his perfectionism about his movies. Seeing Zodiac in the theater and seeing this, was so distracting, that the focus on Jake and Chloe in the scene was gone.

What was it? Two little cans on the back of the stove.

A can of Calamut baking powder and a box of Old Bay.

Baking powder is a leavening agent and keeping it on a heat source negates its purpose. If it was baking soda, you could say that it was there in case of fire. Baking soda is packaged in a box, baking powder is traditionally packaged in a tin. Then there's the Old Bay box. Old Bay is a seafood spice, yes San Francisco is known for seafood but not for Old Bay in their seasonings especially in the 70's. Old Bay is regionally popular, specifically in Southern US and parts of the Gulf Coast and mainly used to season crab and shrimp. But you don't use Old Bay when you cook Dungeness crabs which are the type of crabs predominate on the Pacific coast.

It seems something so small but it sometimes that's exactly what stick out the most. See how a little thing can throw everything. And in a big blockbuster movie it's the same thing.

That brings up PoP and this.

Do you see it?

Amazing that 6th century Persians mastered not only cobbling, but creating rubber and making rubber soled shoes. Look at the craftmanship see the fine detail of the notches. That's traction people pure and simple. The soles know. The fine leather uppers with a flexible sole. They are the next fashion sensation for Persian princes.

Jake needs shoes with traction to do the incredible action he's doing in the movie, andyes the boots take 20 minutes to put on, so it would be a huge pain, to change out for the tight shots but really? It's a 200 million dollar movie. And then an official Disney released still and they didn't catch it either. Well there's something to chat about on the DVD.

The point of all this? Don't discount the little things that pop out on and off screen, people notice . And those are the things that stop and make people think.

And if that's not enough PoPping off here's some more:

Like when Jake almost got his face chopped off:


JAKE: I remember this one scene where I got pulled from first unit to second unit really, really quickly, and we had this big fight scene with Toby Kebbell, who plays my brother in the movie. We had it choreographed, and he had worked on it a lot, but I had had very little time to work on it. But my character was sort of, you know, up against the wall at that point. And so I was literally just defending myself from his entire choreographed fight. I would remember it piece by piece kind of, but not really the whole thing, and the whole thing has the feeling of me going like, “Holy Shit!” The whole thing is me just being like, “Got it! Made that! OK, back over here, OK, we’re here, holy fuck! Wow, I punched him! Wow! Okay!” You know? It’s all real.

There was one moment, too, where my stunt guy — I had practiced with him a lot of the time, and then I come in and when I was doing it there’s one wipe across my face where I’m supposed to duck, and he has an ax, and the ax comes at my face – JULINA: Oh my God! JAKE: – and, like, literally with two hand-held cameras, [second Unit Director]Alexander Witt got the best angle: With nothing enhanced in it, you see he actually almost cut my face off. It’s great.

Check out more from the second part of Jake's interview with 30ninjas.com.


Jake's been doing press the past few days in London and here's some of the highlights.

Asked if he would do a sequel Jake said: "Of course, if there's an opportunity to do another one and people respond to it."...."I don't think that's really on our mind. I think our mind is to get this one out. But of course, it would be an honor. If an audience asks for a sequel, then that's an honor."


And being realistic about doing a movie based on a video game: "I know ... this will not appease all gamers, and I know there is a lot of skepticism about the translation of a video game to a movie." "But I also feel excited that I think we've done something that's better than any of the translations that have come out thus far." "These games haven't been given the respect they deserve in the movie world and I think (producer) Jerry (Bruckheimer) has done that and I think that we tried so hard to make it our own and at the same time stay true to the games.

"They (gamers) are tough, and I appreciate that. I come from a tough family. I don't mind tough critics."

LOL - I noticed the modern soles too, but I thought maybe in the actual film they'd not show that or disguise it in some way? IDK

Funny about the Old Bay seasoning and the baking powder - you would have thought DF would have noticed that. He didn't count on the eagle eyes of some. :)

Rubber Soul said...

Oh Man, now you're going to have me on a Rubber Soul kick all day - one of my fave Beatles albums. Thanks! :)

Special K said...

That is one thing about Fincher that I love so much the compulsive art direction and attention to detail. I mean they recreated every newspaper in those stacks of newspapers in the Chronicle office scenes from microfiche of the original Chronicles and not just the front and back pages but the whole editions. That's why those to cans stick out at me so much.

And why would Disney release a picture like that and not Photoshop the bottom of his shoe, after how they spent so much on other stuff and how long they've had.

Special K said...

Crossed legs can been seen as closing off from someone, not just protecting yourself, but creating a distance. Posturing who's top in the room. But that it's not sexual sense here, but about who is the bigger star.

As for touching his nose. It is a common signal from a person who is not telling the truth. When people lie the blood vessels in their nose tend to dilate and they touch it. But rubbing the side of the nose can also mean a disagreement.

Jake looks really good on Ross, and looks like he was have fun. Can see the pickled onion eating contest, and it looks like Jake gets something cooking too.

m said...

I love how someone keeps coming here to criticize what we say about Jake. Don't like it? Simple solution. Don't visit, then you don't have to read what is being said. Oh, I forgot, it's your job to read.

It's well known that Jake is a bottom and Adam a top. I also like Jake's girly ways. It's not a put down, it makes him very charming. He assumes a submissive demeanor in most of his dealings with men, not just the ones he is attracted to.

Good catch on the details.

lil said...

m, nice to see your true color. Now I know who is working overtime posting shit on JJ.

lil said...

and you were the top so you know he is the bottom. What fanfic again?

Special K said...

Here is the blog post from Leighbaby who competed against Jake in the onion contest.

Friday night with Jonathan Ross

Jake Gyllenhaal was the last guest and it was a hilarious (and the longest) interview. I’ve always loved Jake, as do the majority of the female population, and he was such a good guest and really made everyone laugh. During Jake’s interview, they were talking about how good a cook Jake is, and Jonathan made him eat a pickled onion. Jake spat most of it out which was hilarious, and it was just generally a really nice end to the show. Everyone was really laughing and I was on an Adam high still. The band played their song and Jake and Jonathan came back on set to end the show.

So here comes the most amazingly special part of the day for me...

Jonathan said to the audience, “who wants to volunteer to come up here and eat an onion?” or something to that effect, and I shot both of my hands up and luckily I was right in Jonathan’s line of sight...he looked at me and said “young lady with both her hands up come down!”

I threw my bag on the floor (sorry @charlottewillis) and legged it down the stairs and stood on stage in front of @wossy ‘s desk, where I said hello to Jake and he held my hands, and Jonathan asked for my name (I said “Georgia” and he thought I said “Ginger” which made me laugh a lot) and said “You’re the Adam Lambert fan yeah?” (he clocked us screaming throughout the show a few times) “If you can eat this onion faster than Jake I’ll go and get Adam to sign my copy of his album for you.” I kind of exploded with happiness/excitement then.

So Jonathan put the onions in our mouths and I’d never had a pickled onion before so what a way to have my first one haha!!!! He said go, and Jake was holding my arm and I was gagging – it really was disgusting – and Jake hugged me so tight that I couldn’t chew while trying to keep all the juice from going over his suit and I was trying to push him away! Jake was really lovely and talking to me and all I could hear was @charlottewillis screaming from the audience and it went really fast! Jonathan grabbed my shoulder and told me to spit mine out, which I did, onto his desk J, and declared me the winner. Jake hugged and kissed me again and said “well done Georgia” with a huge gorgeous smileand we had a mini chat, and Jonathan said “it was lovely to meet you darling” and got a big oniony kiss from me, and said to wait in the green room for someone to give me the album.


She is an Adam fan who won the tickets to the show.

Check out the rest of her night.
Thanks Leighbaby for the great post.

BBC said...

Jake Gyllenhaal prepared for Persia franchise

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal says he wants to be taken "a little less seriously" as an actor, and would love the Prince of Persia to become a franchise.

"I think about kids saying 'you're the Prince of Persia!' That I wouldn't mind being locked into," he said.

"I wanted to fulfil the dreams of those movies I loved watching, like Robin Hood with Errol Flynn," he added of his new swashbuckling role.

"Who knows in two or three years time what other weird thing I'll do?" said the star.

prairiegirl said...

I can't believe he mentioned Errol Flynn. I have to say that mention by him earns him major, major kudos with me.

I love Errol Flynn. One of the most beautiful men from old Hollywood. Adventures of Robin Hood, The Seahawk, Santa Fe Trail, San Antonio, Captain Blood, the Prince & the Pauper. Now Errol was a swashbuckling, dashing actor. **sigh**


I was pretty flabberghasted when I saw this quote from Jake. No one talks about Errol Flynn anymore - I'm glad he gave the man a mention.

prairiegirl said...

They Died With Their Boots On.

Olivia de Havilland and Errol had amazing chemistry on screen. Their kisses in The Adven. of Robin Hood were spellbounding.

Now. This jacket. Surely in all of that luggage, the guy has some more clothes. I feel like we've seen the same thing 75 times already with the exception of his black outfit on J. Ross. I refuse to look at anymore pictures until he puts something else on.

lol.

Huh, not really. I'm serious.


He does look very good, though. And he looked good on ET tonight. I guess he's supposed to be on there again Monday night.

Rubber Soul said...

I can't wait for JR. It sounds like it's going to be fun, Georgia is a very lucky girl! :) I wonder what the Poofs will sing, that's always one of my fave parts of JR. We have to wait a week in the US tho! Jake looks amazing in that 4th shirtless pic.

PrairieGirl, I love Errol too. :0

Special K said...

Watching the clips we've seen you can see him trying to channel some Errol Flynn, and can see Jake trying emulate that.

Sounds like Austin being a cinephile is a great match for a old movie buff like Jake. : )


Again he mentions kids. I wonder if you will see Jake doing some more roles that his kids can see him in when they get a little older.

They show a couple new clips blended into a bunch of stuff we've seen before tonight on Entertainment Tonight. They are going to be at the premiere in London on Sunday and reporting on Monday night's show.

ihj said...

Rubber Soul said...

I missed ET tonight, I had to go out. I don't want to miss anything else. :)

Ohhhh those Brits. JR and crew are very funny.

prairiegirl said...

I just saw a clip on heyyouguys website and it's one where Dastan is on a ship? And Ben Kingsley is talking to him. I think Jake does his British accent fine - it's so strange to hear it coming out of him, though, but it's still good to listen to.

I want to see this whole thing.

Now.


lol.

I am all about that hangin' open white shirt look. Jake ought to go down the streets of London with his - oh wait, he's no longer all buffed up anymore. lol. That won't work.

Well, I guess he could try it. See if it works. In any way. Possibly.

Special K said...

So there's a all this buzz about Jake still pining for Reese.

Jake Still Pining for Reese

But let's just break it down.

JAKE Gyllenhaal is pinning for ex Reese Witherspoon.

The Hollywood hunk — who split from the Legally Blonde star in November last year — is apparently missing Reese and her two children.

Wow using Legally Blonde. They have to go that far back for a movie tie in. Funny how they didn't pick her Oscar.

“Reese was without any doubt the love of Jake’s life,” a source told the PopEater website.

“He took the breakup hard and still isn’t ready to move on yet."

Translation So heartbroken he can't date. Can stretch that one out, and not be expected to and shoots downs all the rumors of hook ups. Taking two down at once, Nice Touch

“As much as he would love to have remained friends and see her and her children, it was just too painful.

“They have little contact with each other which is probably for the best.”

Reeke is dead. D E A D

Jersey Tom said...

"Who knows in two or three years time what other weird thing I'll do?" said the star.


Jake should try living the truth. That would be a weird thing for him to do for sure.

Jersey Tom said...

You nailed that one SK. Weird way to live your life. Is anyone in HW for real.

prairiegirl said...

Where do you reckon that stupid story came from, Special? Her camp?

Is she pathetic or what? She's pathetic. What's funny to me is to watch an actress who supposedly had alot of clout in Hollywood reduce herself to pimping herself out as the "love" of someone else's life and so adored that every other woman just pales in comparison. You would think someone of her "stature" would be able to brush Jake off with an eyebrow brush and move along to her next "conquest".

I think she's the one who can't move along.

Jake seems to be doing Just Fine. I bet she's just gritting her teeth, lol.

Predictable said...

PG ITA with you. To me she's self-centered, attention craving phony. Given her track record for always trying to grab the limelight, I'm betting that this weekend will be a Reese and boyfriend photo op blitz. I would even venture to say that if POP does well in UK by the time POP has it's premiere in USA, Reese would probably use that weekend to get engaged so she could steal some attention.

Special K said...

Not sure if it was her people who did it. It could be his people using her standard stealing the spotlight to their advantage. He gets an out, an out of having to date and nonsense, and it kills all the Reeke redux talk. And there is a nice little don't let the door hit on the ass for Reese in the last comment.

Jersey Tom said...

One thing I have to say about Jake is that he has never looked happier. He loves the attention he is getting and I am very sure he loves being rid of reese. I am sure that is one nightmare he will never go back too. He probably will beard again when the time is right but I bet he thinks a little harder about who to beard with.
What a mismatch that was from day one.


I love you Rupaul.

prairiegirl said...

Yup, I wouldn't be surprised either, Predictable. She is incapable of sitting on her hands and living her own life. She's got to drop a few Reesebombs to let her "ex"-s know they've been dumped! They have been drop-kicked to the curb, rolled on and spit out by the Queen. And by gosh, they better be miserable and laying out on her front doorstep begging for a second & third chance.

Man, she can only wish and dream.


Good insight into that, Special. That's possible but boy, I'd sure hate to still give her the time of day. grrrrr.

prairiegirl said...

At least he takes the higher road in this deal.

Well, time to hit the hay. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. What a long week.

Here's hoping maybe tomorrow we'll see........a brown shirt? Orange? Hey, how about green?!!! Or red? lol

So very bitter said...

What are you wittering on about Prairiegirl? Special K finds a tiny article on some random website and you launch into some unhinged rant about how pathetic Reese is? She's the one who is ranting and raving and running down people on the internet??? Have you looked in a mirror recently?

The blindness and sheer hypocrisy you're displaying is hysterical. Please keep it going.

Special K said...

Actually the Jake pining for Reese thing has been popping up all day. They are just repackaging the title. There were about 10 different outlet running the same story in the last 12 hours.

So very bitter said...

Yes, and this happens every single time a hollywood "couple" breaks up. Every. Single. Time. I'm STILL reading stories about Brad Pitt pining for Jennifer Aniston, and they've been divorced for how long now? It's standard. The stories write themselves, it requires no input from Reese or her people.

What the f*** said...

It's well known that Jake is a bottom

have you taken your meds today?
I take it you were there watching when Jake was the bottom?
you are really too much.
how the hell would you know what positions he likes?
may i suggest you put up the slash pen and watch more gay male porn?
you might learn something.
or better still, try the local strip or the books stores and brush up on your research.
Just go in with pen in hand and ask any male if he's a bottom.
Tell him you work for Kinsey.

The nerve of some people.

Behind the scene of the insane stunts of Prince of Persia

joblo said...

joblo

Say what you will about the film, but it does have some pretty damn gorgeous scenery and costumes, and it is nice to see how much effort is finally being poured into a story based on a video game.

Whether or not PRINCE OF PERSIA actually become the first real GOOD video game
movie is another story entirely, and I’m cautiously optimistic, seeing as its fiercest competition is the original RESIDENT EVIL.

more pop said...

I'm totally jazzed for this month's Prince of Persia film. This new trailer has Jakey-poo moving so much that I feel tired just watching it. It's action-y action that takes me back to Aladdin on the Sega Genesis more than it does the parkour-ish Prince of Persia games of late. I feel like he could build up better speed by losing the scarf Destructoid.com

Rags said...

So Jake is going to be a tabloid punch line--or punching bag--for years to come because of Reese.

And what, Austin has nothing better to do than follow Sophia around like a puppy? Does he think if he shows up with her at a talk show he's going to get a job? Boy he must be desperate.

What fools they all are.

more pop said...

Aintitcool.com posted an early review of “Prince of Persia,” which opens May 28. Says the reviewer, “The film works. It achieves what it sets out to do. Jake Gyllenhaal is great fun, the story bounces along and everyone is having a good time. Will it be massive? Probably not. Will it be a big crowd pleaser coming the end of May? Definitely.”

Special K said...

What a night for Austin to be at The Late Show. The whole monologue was about anti gay activist guy being caught with the gay escort. And Craig talking about every day one of these guys are getting caught.

The end of his monologue Craig was saying (to paraphrase) like being really really gay would mean you're straight, and acting really really straight would mean you're gay.

Life creates it's own irony.

They showed the clip of Sophia with the bow. So Mr. Nichols was on Craig in a round about way.

Sophia said she thinks she was a gay man in a past life. It's all becoming clear now... LOL.

Special K said...

Wow! Congrats and a early Happy Mother's Day to Hilarie Burton.

It just became public yesterday that she and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Denny Duquette on Grey's Anatomy, and the movie Losers) are the proud parents of a baby boy, who was born in March.

It was just two weeks ago Hilarie and JDM came out publicly as a couple on the red carpet for his movie Losers.

"She told friends about the pregnancy back in August after she spent a lot of time with Jeffrey on location in New Mexico".

E!

Sounds like she learned a few things being friends with the Man of Mystery.

got a problem with that said...

For all the snooty talk about taking risks and remaining true to the craft, doesn’t every actor want to be in a hit movie (note the number of Oscar-caliber actors who appeared in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Harry Potter series)? Despite what they might tell you, I think the answer would be yes, and it’s nice to see an Oscar-nominated actor like Jake Gyllenhaal, best known for edgy, indie-ish fare like Donnie Darko and Brokeback Mountain, going brazenly mainstream and frankly and unpretentiously acknowledging why without going on about story arcs and character development. trueslant

m said...

Very late start this evening. Ted has hinted about Jake being a bottom many times.

Hilary hiding a baby? Wow, and with all her blogging she never said a word. Who says you can't hide a child if you want to.

In this case, I think it's Jake's people behind the latest Reese story. It gives him an out for no women in his life. Probably good for 2-3 years. The same thing happened with Kirsten. Whatever excuse he needs to avoid bearding, I'll play along. Even Austin, at age 30 has only ever been attached to 2 women. First Clare and now Sophia. Both are such devoted men.

lol said...

I think it's Jake's people behind the latest Reese story.

That's bullshit.

Avon lady is beyond pathetic said...

Reese Tacky Publicity Whore Witherspoon is using Jake and PoP promotion for some self-promotion.

you are really too much.

prairiegirl said...

You know, re: Austin. I did get to thinking lately, Special, like yesterday when we were seeing all these pictures of Jake coming & going from his hotel; the throng of people, paps, etc. And I thought how hard it would have been for Austin to go unnoticed through all that. He would've had to stay inside the whole time and for over a week?

So does Jake have the kid(s)? Is that their stuff in the trunk? Because I'm sure not seeing a real repertoire of wardrobe yet.

I'm just really intrigued by that trunk, lol.

prairiegirl said...

And Austin? This has to be about the show. Is it in the contract that he has to do this ridiculous charade?

I'm beyond disappointed in Austin and I'm disgusted with Sophia Bush.

prairiegirl said...

lol, I don't know what I'm thinking this morning.

If it would be hard for Austin to get in & out of that hotel, what makes me think you could get one or maybe even two BT's in & out of there?

geesh.

YoudisgustME said...

Why wouldn't you be disgusted with Austin and beyond disappointed with Sophia? Do you think Sophia twisted Austin's arm and forced him to beard with her? Why does she deserve more of your wrath than Austin. I guess you must think Austin is a spinless puppet who has no mind of his own, that he' "simple".

lol said...

I'm beyond disappointed in Austin and I'm disgusted with Sophia Bush.

Austin is beyond disgusted with you and your delusions. Please separate your fanfic from reality.

lol said...

Hilarie gave birth in March, not 2 1/2 years ago m, nothing to gide, she has been off the show and off the radar for over a year except for her blogging about the film.

If you check out the pics of Jake at Heathrow back in 10/07, he has that same black trunk, he was starting his Rendition junket.
Maybe his BG clothes are in the trunk, he has had more wardrobe changes than Jake.


Obviously Austin is in L.A.

So very bitter said...

Hilary hiding a baby? Wow, and with all her blogging she never said a word. Who says you can't hide a child if you want to.

Hilary hid a pregnancy and Sandra Bullock hid an adoption for a few weeks. There is a chasm between that and supposedly hiding a child for THREE YEARS. Baby tile is such a stupid story but it's funny watching it play out.

really? said...

Austin is beyond disgusted with you and your delusions.

What delusions, babbler?

lol said...

Gossip cop says that Jake iasn't obsessed with Reese as per jake's camp. They say that he is happily single so I dout the orginal story came from his camp. Happily single means he is ready to mingle, LOL!!

prairiegirl said...

I repeat:

I am beyond disappointed in Austin and I am disgusted with Sophia Bush.

Want me to say it again?

prairiegirl said...

Seriously, lol & bitter, you guys need to start your own blog. Share with someone else who gives a rat's ass what you think.

Oh wait, but then that would require work and coming up with original ideas, something that seems to be a challenge since all you do is borrow from my material.

prairiegirl said...

Well, at least I have had my amusement for the morning.

So very bitter said...

Want me to say it again?

No need, I for one can see the pattern. A woman has dared to be seen with one of your boys, so you'll be bitching about her for however long she continues to be seen with him, and if they separate you'll continue to moan about her for months and months.

Seriously, lol & bitter, you guys need to start your own blog. Share with someone else who gives a rat's ass what you think.

No, I'll continue to give my opinions here, under this name, with no regard to the whining of people who don't like to be disagreed with.

Oh wait, but then that would require work and coming up with original ideas, something that seems to be a challenge since all you do is borrow from my material.

What are you babbling about now? The day that I borrow your ideas and beliefs on things like baby tile will be a cold day in hell. And since you've been so blunt, allow me to respond in kind: you don't have any original ideas. You parrot Ted Casablanca and repeat yourself on a daily basis. My god, you're still moaning about Reese! But it's funny, so please continue.

That's a far cry from being a well-known fact tho, isn't it?

E News said...

Ted has hinted about Jake being a bottom many times.

And you hang on to his every word?

Oh, I forget, Ted never actually says anything or confirms things, he just nixes words and plays with them. Never outs any star.

A word of wisdom, The Ted you so desparately hang on to, may not be Ted, but people sitting in for him or doing his job every so often. Most of the writing don't even sound like him. Every time he or whoever, throws you a bone, you leap.

Ted or these people know very little about Jake and Austin. What they do know, everyone knows. Jake has a movie to promote, Austin is seen with Sophia almost everyday.

If you want to make more out of it, you certainly can, it's your choice, and Ted and his people are there to help.
All for entertainment purposes.

So very bitter said...

No, that is easy to see if you know anything about gay men.

Easy to see? So you claim that anyone that knows anything about gay men can tell if one is a bottom or a top just by looking at them? What a stupid idea. But go on, tell everyone how you can see it. And then tell us how you know he doesn't switch.

LMNOP said...

There's too much of a preocupation (by straight women, it looks like - who don't know from Jack about gay men either) with the nuts and bolts of gay sex. Try to remember they are individuals and people.

What points

Scroll back and read the points about the Jake and Austin hiding a baby and the ridiculousness of Ted's story. Of course you won't, because you're just one of those regular posters with no name and no argument who just likes to jump up and shout troll. Which makes you a troll, irony which is no doubt lost on you.

Something has seriously brought out the less than sweet behavior of some visitors this morning. Or is it just one person chatting with themselves? Hmmmm. Hmmmm Hmmmm.

Someone is sure worked up about the idea that Jake might be a big old bottom with some girly qualities.

Does that blow your fantasy trolly of Jake as a super hetero macho man? Afraid of being attracted and interested in a nelly boy who likes to sing show tunes? And I do use nelly boy in the most affectionate way possible. Love 'em so much I even married one.

No, someone is claiming that anyone who knows gay men can tell if they are a bottom just by looking at them. Of course as soon as they were asked to explain this stupid position they went completely silent, or maybe as Special K suggested they're still posting but using different names.

No! But I see it helps with your fantasies of every gay man is a twisted girly man into high fashion who fusses over some womans hair while wearing lime green and fusha. Most guys who could never butch up if there life depended on it get upset that some guys are not a screaming queen, so their attack is, he's a bottom, just as they are.

Who gives a flying f*** if he is a bottom? You and the women here makes it seem less than.
The point is Queen, YOU don't know that to be a fact. But you desparately want it to be a fact for your own reasons that make you feel good.

poor trolls, have nothing better to do than following Jake is gay blog, complaining and pretending they believe Jake is straight.

Out To Lunch said...

Slash is one thing - fun, sexy, if not sometimes overly mechanical in it's portrayal of gay loving. But to label all gay men's sex the same is ridiculous. And yes, I know several gay men and wouldn't know anything about their intimate lives by looking at them. No, it doesn't make any difference to me if they are effeminate, hyper-masculine or somewhere in between. Just because an actor chooses a role in a film, it says nothing about how he or she lives their personal life. But it seems to really upset a few. This role is very threatening to some. You've got three weeks left to conjure up something to ruin it.

confused about it all said...

Was Austin on Craig Furgerson with Sophia last night?

I thought someone said he would be in the UK with Jake and the children.
How can he be here in the US on TV while Jake is there in UK promoting his big movie. Austin should be there with his husband, wouldn't you think???

Maybe Sophia is a better bottom??

geez said...

How stupid can you be? Jake's role in BBMt has nothing to do with his being gay or being a bottom.

"Hurries to write Ted for more Toothy bottoming comments to post"

Narrow Minds said...

BBM was a film that is one of the best ever made IMO, and very very close to people's hearts - but it was made over four effing years ago. Jake is moving on to other, different roles now. So he's playing a macho man this time around, why is that such a big deal, and why can't people enjoy it? I want to hear more about his maybe playing Dean Moriarty also. I wish him lots of success with PoP and any future franchises, because it will give him the ability to do whatever he likes, both personally and professionally.

Time's A Wastin' said...

That's the spirit, 11:02. Don't give up!

destiny said...

For what it's worth, Michael K. also called Jake a bottom a couple of times. I figure he and Ted have both heard things, and in Ted's case it's probably also a way to tie Toothy to BBM.

I think it's funny that someone is getting all worked up about the fact that we're talking about gay men and sex and seems to feel the need to defend gay men's honor. Most of the gay men I have known are more than happy to chatter on about sex and what they do and don't do, and to talk about what others do. Maybe it's just that the gay men I've known have had a pretty healthy attitude towards their own sexuality and see no problem with discussing it.

huh? said...

Narrow Minds said...

But that's just it - that's your experience and yours alone. Not others'. Then you have to go make value judgements about other people's experiences. It's very closed-minded. Nobody is defending anyone, it's just that some hear a rumor and take is as the gospel truth. Maybe it is; maybe it isn't.

So very bitter said...

No, someone said that anyone who knew gay men could tell a gay man was a top or a bottom just by looking at them. I pointed out what a stupid statement that was and asked them to explain how that was possible, and they had a meltdown and posted under different names calling anyone who disagreed with them a troll.

m said...

Obviously the troll is talking to itself. Must be getting paid overtime to make things unpleasant. Either that or Ted is about to drop another juicy Toothy tidbit. Gossip Boy did mention that Jake was spotted up to something. Like clockwork, the troll gets agitated right before Ted spills something.

Narrow Minds said...

That is so ridiculous. That is the same sad fallback story all the time, and we're still waiting for the so-called juicy tidbit to be revealed. Where is it? Someone needs a new scriptwriter - what are you, 10 and the calm before the juicy tidbit storm are getting tired now. I'll add one: like clockwork, any mention or appearance of Sophia and Austin seems to stir some up, whether it's true or not. So it seems to work both ways. I didn't even know she was on TV last night, nor am I interested. Some of you are so good at towing and repeating the Party Line it's quite funny. No different than the NRA; afraid any modification or change would call into question and weaken the entire law. For a some, you have to wonder what's in it for them.

So very bitter said...

Yes, ?/!/Anon/ha ha sure do sound like the same poster. Well spotted m. Although you are doing the same thing, where you avoid the point and call people trolls.

That's the line that m always trots out when someone disagrees with her. it just keeps getting funnier.

Narrow Minds said...

Why am I posting here? Because number one, I want to - I like Special's topics and the music, I'm interested in PoP, and sometimes I (try) to discuss a point or two, until I get bombarded with assumptions about why I'm posting, my so-called predjudices and self-loathing, latent homophobic ways, hoping to intimidate me into shutting up, which it won't and never will. Ohhhhkaaay? And the post at 11:36 wasn't mine, but there are enough narrow minds to go around, I see.

So very bitter said...

Same question for 11:49 AM - why are you posting here? Do you have anything worth saying about any subject? Anything at all?

I actually have a name that I've been posting under consistently, unlike tolls like yourself, so try using it. And I've been talking about subjects like baby tile, gay sex, homophobic stereotyping etc, unlike the trolls such as yourself who do nothing but call people trolls and then change names when challenged to actually talk. So pick a name, stick to it and tell me what points you disagree with me on. But like the last time I asked a troll to scroll back and address an argument, you won't. Because you're just that predictable. Because it's it's 95% certain that you're the same troll with a new name. So I think I'll just ignore you with whatever name you use, until you do post something more than insults.

I think it goes without saying that people view things based on their own experiences and values. Doesn't mean they shouldn't express what they think about something, be it their opinion of POP or their opinion of whether Jake is gay or a bottom.

What I don't get is why you're so bothered Narrow Minds by people doing that, to the point of lashing out at them.

You just seem so angry and bitter. Does it hit too close to home, perhaps? We know why Tom and Destiny get angry, and why the trolls and babblers do it too, but you're a bit of a puzzle. I'm beginning to wonder if you have had or currently have someone in your life that people keep telling you is gay or that deep down you suspect is gay, but that you don't want them to be, like a boyfriend.

Endless Enigma said...

I think it goes without saying that people view things based on their own experiences and values.

Yes, but they shouldn't project those assumptions onto others, or denigrate other's experiences because of what they think, and allow for differences of opinion. It has nothing to do with tops bottoms, whatever. It was the point of how just a hint by a gossip columnist must be fact. It's different, but it doesn't make it less. Just to put your mind at ease, no you are wrong about all of your assumptions, on all counts. Is your life that empty that you need to fill in the blanks about other people's lives, not just movie stars? If so, might I suggest becomeing a slash writer. But then, you might have to think up something original now wouldn't you.
