Got Goosed?!?

By now you've seen the pictures from the Chrysalis Ball.

But did you see what really was going on.

Like here

See the sponsor by Austin's head.

Oh yeah that's right. Grey Goose.

What didn't see that one?

Somehow they have conveniently and carefully posed at a part on the red carpet where the backdrop doesn't have Grey Goose by his head or it is photoshopped out of the pictures.

Here

Here

and here

(HQ pic click to enlarge)
Wonder why??????

Maybe they know something we know. Who the Grey Goose is.

What was pointed out was that most interesting thing is that main photo agencies (Getty, Wireimage, Filmmagic) that provide to the mainstream sites have all the pics without the Grey Goose visible by his head and that on small photo agencies that nobody sees are the ones that do.

Now why would you be so careful about that if you weren't the great Grey Goose?

So the pics with the GG visible are pretty much exclusive for OMG. No other site has them.

A shower of gold stars in the sky for the friend of OMG that sends such gifts to our mailbox. Thank you Thank you.

Do you notice other things in this picture?

Like Austin in a three piece ... with French cuffs ... who's done that look recently?

Jake's little shout to Austin was the knitted tie. Looks like Austin shouting back to his man.

The hair? Don't really know where he's going with that. Prefer him letting it shine (his fivehead) on the red carpet.
(HQ pic)

And then of course the very deliberate pose with his hand in front of him.

Which leads to today's Top Ten:


Top Ten Reason's for Austin's Interesting Pose.

10. "I want to be cast for the lead in Napoleon: Walking Tall."

9. "I shouldn't have eaten that burrito before hitting the red carpet."

8. "Ha Ha Ha Oh you kill me when telling these ridiculously made up stories of our dating."

7. "Girls make me queasy. Guys make me easy. "

6. "I'm so full. No room. Not even for a wafer thin mint."

5. "Hey.... pull my finger."

4. "I just got these new swell cuff links and wanted to show them off."

3. "Can't pat my head and rub my tummy but can rub my tummy and grab a beard"

2. "Jake was right. Hot tandem bedroom Pilates does a body good."

and the number reason Austin is posing like that:

1. "Flashing my ring just like my hot hubs does."

Think they look alike? Just a little?

Today's song is by a favorite of Jake's. He mentioned her in a interview.

Something else you might not know about Laura Marling.

In an interview with The Guardian from February 2009, Marling stated she was romantically linked with Marcus Mumford, of fellow folk band Mumford and Sons.



I know that the player works for some and not for others. For those who can't here the music, one question are you using IE? or Mozilla as your browser?

ring said...

Not photoshopped, they are just posing at 2 different areas on the red carpet. One GG ad appears by his head and the other it appears lower. GG sponsers a lot of benefits, hard to escape them.

2 silver bands, one a pinky ring , the other a ring for the right index finger. Austin's appears thicker, Jake's flat. What happened to that blue ring Austin used to wear? He seems to be wearing this onr and that gold signet rings at times.

Fans of Mumford know that Laura is dating Marcus.

Cirrus said...

Awww, nice post today. Have a great visit with your Dad, Spesh! :)

Special K said...

What is very very interesting is that EVERY large photo agency does not have the picture of him with the Grey Goose by his head.

Coincidence that not one of them doesn't have one picture like that when other smaller agencies do? I think not.

Please remember Sophia is the daughter of two photographers, very savy of the red carpet. You think she didn't see where he's head was with the backdrop? Just like she knows what her best poses are for the camera, so does she know where to stand in front of the backdrop.

The blue ring is Larimar. The intensity of the blue color fades over exposure to sunlight. It also may mean that Austin has other rings that he has received that are are equal significance to big blue.

Fans of Mumford might know about them dating but wanted to let those who were speculating about the prospect of Jake and Mr. Mumford to know that both are unavailable.

destiny said...

Hey.... pull my finger.

LOL. Great post today Special.

There is no doubt in my mind that either pr, or even JJ, ran with pictures without GG in them.

Reemeber when the pictures of Bomer from Next Fall were posted on JJ, the first ones in which he was wearing a ring? Remember all the discussion because it was hard to tell if it was a ring? Well, there were other pictures that JJ didn't use that clearly showed the ring. I attribute that to JJ, deliberate or not, because a few days later there was a post of Bomer at Make a Wish, and the ring was prominent in the photos, as it has been since then.

ring said...

I checked wireimages and they don't have any photos of Austin and Sophia together at this event, just Sophia unless I missed it. Anyway, she is posing w/o the GG ad near her head.

Getty and Filmagic has both.

Why do you think that anyone gave Austin his rings? He isn't a pauper, he can buy his own rings, most men and women do.

Some find it hard to believe that a straight man and a gay man csn be freinds and that if they are seen standing together means they are fucking.

destiny said...

M, you're right about IHJ too. Last time I was on there 50 other people, compared to the Reeke days when maybe a 10 other people would be on line.

clueless said...

Just because Marcus Mumford is linked to Laura Marling doesn't mean he's straight. I mean DUH, haven't we learned ANYTHING from Jake and Austin? And Marcus wears a pinky ring, too. Which automatically makes him gay, according to OMG logic, right?

So very bitter said...

So Sophia got Austin to carefully pose so that the Grey Goose sign wasn't by his head, because she knows about poses etc...except for the pictures where they are stood with the Grey goose sign by his head? What kind of sense does that make? And then, what? Austin and Sophia's PR people rang all of the major photo agencies and asked them not to put those pictures up?

Isn't it slightly more logical to believe that the reason for running one set of pictures rather than the other is because the ones with Grey Goose by Austin's head is because the backdrop looks cheap and damaged? The backdrop has been stretched out and warped, with creases running across it and a horrible raggedy fold line going down the right hand side of the picture. The lighting also looks bad. Contrast it with background in the pictures taken by the larger agencies; no creases or fold marks and the lighting is much better.

So I guess you could pretend that this was all some conspiracy to make sure Austin wasn't seen with Grey Goose by his head, or you could just believe that agencies and media outlets would want to use the higher quality pictures.

grassy knoll said...

Oh no pretending, Oh so bitter. OMG actually believes in conspiracy theories. If it works to their advantage you understand.

Special K said...

You don't think their management, which they have the same, didn't see a picture of a client who is rumored to be Grey Goose is a long standing BV and not made a move to get those pulled out of the pictures. They wouldn't be doing their job if they didn't do that kind of stuff.

really? said...

Why would Austin's management pull out the pictures?
People who know about Toothy and Goose will be amused (IF they spot that GG ad).
People who don't know about Austin and Toothy will continue to be clueless about them.

So very bitter said...

You don't think their management, which they have the same, didn't see a picture of a client who is rumored to be Grey Goose is a long standing BV and not made a move to get those pulled out of the pictures.

I'll say it again, I guess you could pretend that this was all some conspiracy to make sure Austin wasn't seen with Grey Goose by his head, or you could just believe that agencies and media outlets would want to use the higher quality pictures.

destiny said...

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet since I can't watch videos at work, but Mike White and Justin Long have made a short video in support of gay marriage, with Tom Arnold thrown in the mix too.

Nice to see Drew's boyfriend is as supportive of gay rights as she is.

Make Homosexuals Marry

ring said...

The GG ad still appears in the pics that are on Getty and Filmagic, if they were so "concerned", they could have easily photoshopped them out, the ad is very visible.

I don't think and I do hope that Sophia's and Austin's agency could give a flying fuck about such juvenile bullshit.

lmao said...

"Girls make me queasy. Guys make me easy. "

That needs to be a t-shirt.

calling it said...

So bitter and really will distract with the Grey Goose thing and ignore that Austin posed to show off his ring.

turbulentmouse said...

That is a really awkward arm pose I have to admit. It looks really deliberate.

So very bitter said...

Hey everyone, in the pictures of Austin in today's post, you can clearly see he is wearing a ring. Apparently if I don't mention this, and instead talk about the Grey Goose thing that Special K dedicated the first half of her post to then I may distract you from this fact, because calling it believes you have the attention span of a kitten and will get easily distracted if someone discusses more than one point at a time. So, let me restate, Austin is wearing a ring in the pictures Special K posted and the positioning of his hand allows the ring to be seen clearly.

destiny said...

It does Turbulentmouse.

turbulentmouse said...

Also, does anyone else hate Sophia Bush's dress here? I mean, I love her and think she's beautiful but it's cute possibly the least flattering thing I've seen on her- makes her look really middle heavy.

Maybe it's the way the light hits it?

agencies said...

"The GG ad still appears in the pics that are on Getty and Filmagic, if they were so "concerned", they could have easily photoshopped them out, the ad is very visible."

None of the pics on Getty and Filmmagic have the GG ad next to Austin's head. The ad is not visible in those pics.

Getty

Filmmagic

destiny said...

I'm not crazy about the way the dress fits her either. It's a good color for her, but not the most flattering cut. I used to like the clothes she wears, but lately some of her choices have been not so great or down right odd.

another conspiracy said...

I'd like to distract everyone with Austin showing off his hand without rings:

May 25, Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols: Red Carpet Couple

destiny said...

That dress isn't so great on Sophia either. I think she has a short waist, and most dresses are designed to look good on women with long waists.

short-waisted, but long-legged said...

Is it really necessary to put down Sophia's looks because you are mad that she might be bearding? Especially since she probably looks a hell of a lot better than most of us.

Special K said...

I also think with her skin tone, the color is not the most flattering. And against such a dark back drop for pictures as a opposed to a white one, it brings out the positive and negative space more. Also there are some color that photographers ask that you not wear for pictures,light colors that approximate flesh tones such as beige, tan, peach, pink, white, and yellow.

Also in couples or groups, Light and dark tones together create visual confusion, as one subject comes forward and the other recedes.

turbulentmouse said...

Is it really necessary to put down Sophia's looks because you are mad that she might be bearding? Especially since she probably looks a hell of a lot better than most of us.

I don't think any of us are doing that, we are just saying we don't like THIS dress. In fact I stated that I think she's beautiful, and I really do. I've had a girl crush on her since first season of OTH. I could care less who she is with or not with, it doesn't make this dress's cut any more flattering on her.

Alewife said...

It' all opinion. It just seems to be routine, any woman the guys are within a 50-mile radius of. I actually like the style of the dress and the color on her, and sounds rather catty, really. I know all about the photographic color rules, but who says they can't be broken? Now you can all circle me like sharks, as you did with really the other night, but I'm getting out of the pool. Carry on!

destiny said...

You know what I thought looked really good on Sophia was that gray jersey dress she wore a couple of years back to a Fashion Week party with Austin. Good color and style for her, sexy but young and fun looking at the same time. Loved that dress.

I know glamour is back, but so often with those kinds of dresses there is a sameness to them.

turbulentmouse said...

As for the May 25th dress, I think that one looks about as good on her as that dress could look. I think it's just not a flattering dress in general. The color is weird and the cut of the waist is going to add bulk on a size 0 frame.

But what do I know, half of the "designer" stuff people wear on red carpets that fashion critics love I think is ugly.

destiny said...

But what do I know, half of the "designer" stuff people wear on red carpets that fashion critics love I think is ugly.

ITA. It's almost like they don't care if the dress is wearing them or is ugly as long as it came from a hot designer.

destiny said...

You know who I think looks usually looks really good on the red carpet, Kristen Stewart. I don't know if you saw the dress she wore for the premiere of The Runaways in NYC, but I loved it. She keeps it simple, no excess fabric or odd lines for the sake of novelty.

turbulentmouse said...

ITA. It's almost like they don't care if the dress is wearing them or is ugly as long as it came from a hot designer.

Or maybe they have some evolved sense of style the rest of us peons couldn't possibly understand ;-) /joke

Kristen Stewart would look better on the red carpet without her permascowl. The dresses are usually tres cute though, I'll give her that. Sorry, I'm just not a Kristen Stewart fan at all.

Did you see the Movie Awards last night? I am in love with what Sandra Bullock was wearing.

m said...

Score an A+ for detective work to whoever noticed the cover up. And the top 10 reasons are terrific too. Actually knowing what we know about Austin, I would not be surprised if he did not deliberately stand beside the Grey Goose logo so it would have to be photo shopped out. Those boys have a devilish streak running through them. The Goose wording is still visible right along his awkwardly placed arm.

destiny said...

KStew does scowl, but after all the HW phoniness I kind of like seeing that sometimes.

Didn't see the MTV awards yet, I recorded it so that I can fastfoward through all the commercials. But Saundra usually looks really good.

destiny said...

Could be M, I like that idea.

really? said...

There is no cover up because there is nothing to cover up - only people who follow TT saga can see the connection and they already know about Austin / GG.

M and M said...

With all the elaborate bearding and game playing we have seen over the past three years, I have no doubt that part of Jake and Austin’s “handling” has to do with photo ops and making sure that images of the guys are presented in a way that deemphasizes the rumors swirling around them. If some hyperbolic posters want to refer to such “business as usual” activities as conspiracies, knock your socks off. I call it just another day at the office of an anonymous Hollywood flack earning their paycheck.

As I stated yesterday, when I first saw the red carpet photo on JJ, Austin’s pose is more than conspicuous, it is intentional. Don’t know what the significance of both men wearing unadorned silver bands are, but they sure do like displaying them. I know that the word for silver in Hebrew is “kesef”, and the word for desire is closely related - “kesufin.” And, that in Jewish tradition, the plain, smooth wedding band, without frills, stones or engravings is preferred since the precious metal has immediate ascertainable value and reflects the depth of the commitment.

And, I like the direction M is going. Austin has a certain "style" all his own and I think his passive aggressiveness comes out in a variety of ways. That index finger is sort of sending out a "middle finger" vibe to me. LOL!

lol said...

I would not be surprised if he did not deliberately stand beside the Grey Goose logo so it would have to be photo shopped out.

Not photoshopped, they are just posing at 2 different areas on the red carpet.

destiny said...

Very interesting about the rings and the Hebrew words M and M.

significance said...

Please post other pictures of Jake and Austin wearing silver bands.

turbulentmouse said...

To me, the significance is the wearing of unadorned silver bands at all. Most casual rings that men wear have a design of some sort on them. The only time people wear plain bands (read also: boring) are when it's a wedding band.

Actually now that I think about it, it's the same for women too. You just rarely see anyone wearing plain silver (or gold) bands casually. Why would you? Casual jewelry is meant to be a statement/accessory to an outfit. How does a plain boring band do that?

vogue said...

What is the significance of wearing a silver band once or twice a year?

Love this Post said...

These photos of Austin next to the Grey Goose logo are just too funny. Didn't we have a photo of Jake once next to some type of logo or photo that had a similar significance for Toothy?

turbulentmouse said...

What is the significance of wearing a silver band once or twice a year?

That we see anyway. To be honest, I have no idea how often they wear them or don't- I just don't pay that close of attention.

I just think unadorned silver bands are incredibly boring if used just as random accessories.

Why do you need people to convince you of everything? Come up with your own conclusions and stop trying to egg people into arguing with you. It's tiring.

Vanity Fair said...

Very good point about plain bands Turbulentmouse, I always associate them with marriage or commitment rings. I can't recall ever seeing someone wear them just for decorative purposes. Pinky rings in particular tend to be a bit showy.

Hello, this post is about SHOWING OFF rings.

No one asked you to convince anyone of anything.

Finally said...

Haven't been here in while. So great to see Jake and Austin photographed together again. Hope we start seeing a lot more them together.

prairiegirl said...

Hey Finally; how wonderful for you to pop back in and visit. Maybe you were last here before I came on; whenever it was, it's nice to see you.

Special K said...

Back from the airport with a Pops but no luggage. That hasn't left KS yet. So maybe by midnight tonight we will have everything.

I notice the photoshop thing first when I got the first set of pictures from our friend of OMG, yesterday and then with the HQ pictures they sent later they went through and looked at all the pictures for the Grey Goose thing, mentioned about the big agencies not having the pictures with Grey Goose by his head.

Oh I can totally see that rebellious streak in him wanting to stand right by it. Remember Ted saying that Toothy knows he's Toothy and a bit proud of it. Think his Goose might be the same way.

prairiegirl said...

Very nice catch, Special. I would have never noticed.

Now that I zoomed out the shot of the rings, I see how similar those 2 rings are. They look identical. Nice shot of Jake's upper leg, too. lol.

And once again, I'm also most awed by the flawlessness of Jake's fingernails. I'm blown away. That man has the most beautiful fingernails and fingers I've ever seen on a man. Perfectly trimmed across - I don't think an engineer with a Ph.D. could cut that line any straighter. Pristine. Just absolutely pristine. I dunno - can fingertips be erotic?

And I am also quite excited, now that I have enlarged the photo, to see that Austin has pilus on his hands!!!!!

I liked Sophia's dress and I thought she looked pretty gorgeous in the pictures. It might not be the best color for her but I thought it fit her well. What I do like about Sophia is she's voluptuous. It's nice to see a woman in HW who's not a stick and embraces her curves.

prairiegirl said...

Can an engineer get a Ph.D.? lol. I have no idea.


I think Austin looks like Napoleon. I'm going to start calling him Napoleon. The next thing he needs to do is stick his hand sort of inside his shirt.


lol.


"One if by land, two if by sea."

"I have yet begun to fight!"

Or whatever it is that Napoleon said.


Maybe he didn't say anything famous and he's known for holding his hand like that.

History is not a strong point of mine. As one can obviously tell.

prairiegirl said...

Well, I'm glad I missed the Troll Buttinsky Invasion, that's all I can say.


I have already slurped down my Slimfast Rich Chocolate Royale drink and that is it for me. That thing is like drinking a chocolate shake. It is the best.

Today has been just awful at work. I don't think I like Mondays anymore. They didn't used to be this bad. I have four more days and then it's a week of BIG V!!!! lol. Got alot to get done though before that ever happens.

I think the big news lately is this Joran Van Der Sloot being arrested. That is an unbelievable story. Absolutely unbelievable.

That's an outstanding point, Turbulent Mouse. The plain wedding band has evolved because it symbolizes a timeless, endless circle, which in terms of marriage, has been translated into the notion of everlasting, unbroken love.

prairiegirl said...

I have seen pictures of the Sandra Bullock/Scarlett Johansson kiss and that kiss is pretty darn hot. I didn't care for the Sandra/Meryl Streep one, but this one is pretty awesome.

Sandra looks gorgeous in her black leather dress and also the shiny beaded one. She looks radiant.

I also liked the shot of Dustin/Jason Bateman. Ol' Kramer vs Kramer sure is laying one on ol' Jason B. Wow!


Just reading on cnn.com about the Joran Van Der Sloot case and this story is going to be all over when more facts become available. Absolutely unbelievable.

Well, I'm going to need to cut it short so I won't have to stay so late. I brought my story with me but no writing today. The meeting room is being taken up with...a meeting! Imagine that.

Hi m&m!! Fancy meeting you here at this time. Here you & T.M. are having these wise observations and classic conversations and all I do is come on here and talk about thighs, Napoleon, fingernails and hot kisses.

Unadorned, because the romantic symbolism is so powerful that there is no need for ostentatious embellishment.

Special made a good point about light and dark thing making one person coming forward and the other receding. That's why you notice the dress more.

I've never paid too much attention to Jake's hands, but I've always noticed Austin's, probably because he seems to display them more than Jake. I've always liked Austin's hands.

ring said...

I did my own zooming in and adding to the fact that one is a pinky ring and the other isn't Austin's ring has what appears are a design on his band, or maybe small stones. They look bluish. I noticed it in a previous pic, I thought it was a reflection. Also Austin's looks a bit thicker, Jake's appear flat.

The photos from the benefit aren't photoshopped.

stop being a baby said...

sexpert, destiny said "I think" which means that she was voicing an opinion. She is not right or wrong and can "think" whatever she wants to think the same as you can "think" whatever you want. The problem with you is that you are asserting that destiny is wrong which is not the same as voicing an opinion.

quote said...

From a new French interview with Jake posted on WDW:

"I learned to keep my distance from all this [paparazzi attention], I know how to protect myself. The problem in my profession isn't the tabloid press. Moviemaking is a dangerous for your mental health if you're not honest with yourself. If you play a game, then sooner or later, you'll lose yourself. The hardest part for me is to be fair. I want to choose good stories, the roles that I really wanted, and, above all, give meaning to my life and make it meaningful to others.When one of my movies affects people, it's little, but that's something."

Arrow said...

Destiny is OMG's General know-it-all. She usually has no problem speaking up for herself as well. I remember her saying that straight people have no idea about what it's like to be gay, so I would assume the reverse is true as well - she doesn't have any idea about what it's like to be straight.

prairiegirl said...

Some of you need to calm the heck down. I think Destiny's comment originally started with an addressing to me. And it did say "I think".

And I know what she's talking about; I don't need all kinds of outside interference when it wasn't asked for.

I thought Mrs. Crabbits was only on Bewitched. It seems she's been resurrected in several comments today.

Who cares if it was photoshopped or not. It's still very amusing that Austin posed near that sign. I'll agree with Charybdis that Austin may have posed there on purpose.

So very bitter said...

If some hyperbolic posters want to refer to such “business as usual” activities as conspiracies, knock your socks off. I call it just another day at the office of an anonymous Hollywood flack earning their paycheck.

M and M, it's hyperbolic to suggest that a bunch of pictures have been taken and then vanished because the words Grey Goose appear by Austin's head when it's clear that the reason for the two different types of picture is because the pictures were taken in front of two different sets of background. It's also clear that the smaller agency got low quality pictures with bad lighting in front of a badly creased background, whereas the better agency got the better pictures in front of the better looking background. That's not a conspiracy, that's a plainly observable fact.

The conspiracy theory is even stupider because the words Grey Goose are still clearly visible right beside Austin in the "PR approved/photoshopped" pictures.

*Disclaimer for the benefit of trolls: Austin is wearing a ring on his hand. Do not allow yourself to be distracted from this fact. I repeat, Austin is wearing a ring on his hand.

fair's fair said...

Who cares if it was photoshopped or not. It's still very amusing that Austin posed near that sign.

ITA, it's amusing, but I'd like to know the truth behind this amusing story.

london tb said...

Austin's looking good, I like the hair and beard (facial).

Just my own personal experience said...

straight men seem to have more issues with personal hygiene, and straight women seem to be more tolerant of it for some strange reason.

I have a work colleague that has the most digusting finger nails, chewed cuticles, etc. I have ever seen in my life. All self-inflicted. They are so bad that I avert my eyes if at all possible. Ditto with other people in my
office. He's straight and married.

And the smelly student who hit on me in school, or the married smelly co-worker that someone finally had to talk to who I've had the misfortune to be next to with that worn and sweated into multiple times shirt? Straight men.

huh said...

I think the bigger question is WHY Destiny happens to think fingers are more important to gays and lesbians. This should interesting.

destiny said...

I do like Austin with a beard, unlike Jake. I think facial hair makes Jake look older and a tad too serious. But Austin still looks very boyish with the facial hair.

prairiegirl said...

I thought Austin looked really great in the pictures. Just not sure about that Prince of Persia hair look.




Maybe that was the shoutout to the hubby! lol.

June 7 - Leaving A Gym In Studio City, no OTH 'couple' this time

destiny said...

LOL. JJ has a description of the kind of workout Jake is doing (small muscle groups) and notes that a number of famous women have used the studio, followed by this quote:

Courteney Cox has said, “Tracy Anderson’s Method changes your body in a way that no other exercise can. You will see remarkable results…a feminine sexy body!”

JJ

It's immediately followed by a post of M. Kunis at the party, which of course has to mention Sophin.

Hope Austin likes the feminine sexy look on men. ;)

I think he has the Chase Crawford look going on London tb.

Gotta say I havent had much to say lately mostly because I knew how important PoP was to some folks around here but my nerves are wearing thin. Very very thin.

I think he has the Chase Crawford look going on London tb.

Bad idea.

Jersey Tom said...

That first pic sure is a classic. Yes Austin we know you r the Grey Goose. Yes Austin we do see your little pinky ring. Now stop acting like a F ing coward and have the balls to do whats right. If you are a father then u are a HORRIBLE father.

M and M said...

I see that Gemma Artenton was married on Saturday in Spain. Gosh, Gemma didn't even invite the other "princess" from PoP to celebrate her special day. I wonder if she was worried that the feminine figure Jake's been carving out over at Tracy Anderson's studio might prove too devastating for the groom to resist! ;-)

Spanish Wedding

M and M said...

I also noticed that Isabel Who? was finally asked about her "relationship" with Jake on June 3 and admitted it was just platonic. Gee, you mean it took 2 whole months before someone got close enough to ask her that question? How convenient that the truth is only verified after PoP promotion is over. How very...convenient.

M and M said...

^ Correction. On, June 2.

Special K said...

Hope Austin likes the feminine sexy look on men. ;)

Like long lean sexy legs legs wrapped around your head kind of thing? ; )

M and M said...

And don't forget those "use them like you mean it" slingbacks! *wink*

Special K said...

Ok so what's up with the towel? Too big of stretch the shorts split or was he just too bootylicious and too much for the ladies in the class?

fair's fair said...

Special K,

please answer my 4:07 PM question.

here we go again... said...

Ahhhh, really? is back under another name!
You almost got us there with your clever disguise! *rolls eyes*

fair's fair said...

here we go again,

still easier to play stupid than answer a simple questions?

prairiegirl said...

Oh oh! PR to damage control, PR to damage control.

I can already see the pictures of Jake leaving his Pilates classes coming to an abrupt halt. The Huffington Post has this story and mentions the small muscle emphasis and how it's a favorite of people from Gwyneth P. to Madonna.

Huh.


Actually, it is a really interesting, possibly revealing little bit of information. Emphasis on the smaller muscle groups. Usually guys want to bulk up, not shrink.

Jake, you do not need to shrink any more, buddy.

prairiegirl said...

still easier to play stupid than answer a simple questions?


And there probably isn't now going to be any answer coming after that little insult.

prairiegirl said...

Special, I think that's a hoodie in his hand. I see a hood drawstring poking out.

fair's fair said...

Prairiegirl,

it is easy to see that Special K avoids the answer, so I can only conclude that she made up today's 'photoshopped photos' story.

M and M said...

Jake, you do not need to shrink any more, buddy.

LOL! Now, don't make fun of our man. You remember that butt we saw in the three piece suit entering David Letterman's studio. Well, let's just say you don't just get that kind of eye catching firmness by just feeding the baby at night or playing with Legos in bed with Austin. It is funny, however, that Jake is using a training method, geared to the more feminine figure. But, I have to admit I like Jake's body. Muscular and toned but not overbulked.

Whole Body Balance

M and M said...

Ok, so what's up with the towel? Too big of stretch the shorts split or was he just too bootylicious and too much for the ladies in the class?

Poor Jakey. Sweaty and looking fine, he probably had to use that towel as a weapon to fend off all those women who were understandably admiring his bodacious derrière. Unfortunately, the more mundane answer is that he probably just forgot he had tucked the towel into his shorts for wiping off sweat during his body sculpting routine. Jake actually looks like he's in a rush in a couple of those photos, and is annoyed that the paps were there. Maybe he got a call from someone special and needed to skedaddle pronto and just forgot to remove his terrycloth companion. I actually know men who cook a lot (I'm talkin' about in the kitchen for this particular example), and have acquired the useful habit of tucking a kitchen towel into their waistband for convenience. (Note that if I had been referring to the other kind of "cooking" I would have inserted an "f" instead of that "t" in "tucking."
*wicked smile*

Special K said...

Somehow they have conveniently and carefully posed at a part on the red carpet where the backdrop doesn't have Grey Goose by his head or it is photoshopped out of the pictures.

In the post it is either or

But first looking at the pictures it appeared to be photoshopped because only one E was near his head and in other pictures it was there.

It is one of the quickest and easiest photoshop of spraying over the text with the background color. So easy an amateur like me could do it.

Not the first time there has been photoshopped and cropped pictures when it comes to Austin and Sophia. Hmmm the magic shoes and the sitting on the beach in Malibu back in 2006.

prairiegirl said...

eye catching firmness


Awww, you know my weak spot, m&m.

Gets me all inspirational for my writing, you know.

prairiegirl said...

Destiny, you were saying yesterday about Elton singing at Rush Limbaugh's wedding? People.com has a bit about that:

Elton John may have seemed like the last person expected to perform at Rush Limbaugh's wedding over the weekend.

Limbaugh, 59, has made a number of colorful remarks about gays that have sparked outrage – and kept his conservative credentials intact. But on some issues, they do share common ground.

Limbaugh, for instance, told Zev Chafetz, author of the Limbaugh biography Army of One, that he supports civil unions for gay couples instead of marriage – a point on which Limbaugh and the openly gay John agree.

"I don't want to be married," John said in 2005 when he and David Furnish tied the knot in a civil partnership ceremony. "If gay people want to get married or get together, they should have a civil partnership. The word 'marriage,' I think, puts a lot of people off."

Issues aside, John, 63, has never been reluctant to confound those who think they know him. Consider his unlikely collaboration at the Grammys with Eminem, despite the controversial rapper's gay-bashing lyrics. The two are still friends.

Then there's the one thing Limbaugh and John can certainly find common ground on: the benefits of capitalism. According to a Fox News affiliate, John was paid $1 million for his services.



Wow. $1 million for singing. Can you imagine??? Would anyone spend $1 million to have someone sing "Your Song" at your wedding? Who has $1 million to toss down like that? lol. wow.

turbulentmouse said...

Magic shoes? I don't think I've heard about those before.

Special K said...

Here's an OMG post that mentions the magic shoes.

Golden Oldie

prairiegirl said...

Magic shoes? I don't think I've heard about those before.


Ah, the magic shoes. Austin carrying Jake's shoes on the beach? But no Jake? Someone else will be able to tell the story better than me, turbulentmouse. It has to do with mystery shoes and beach house stair posts that disappear, too. lol.


And not to detract from your question, but I am in the dark on something. I just saw the underground market pictures for the first time. What is the advantage of an underground market? Does it have to do with the advantages of say, like an earth contact home or something?

Jake does more food shopping. BT must being raised on organic everything.

So what do some of you guys reckon Jake & Austin's take on diapers is? To disposable or not to disposable?

tracy anderson said...

Strengthening the accessory muscles help to create a tight knit group of small muscles that actually pull in the larger muscle groups. Tracy has also found that muscles become bored quickly. To fight this, she always keeps the muscles guessing by routinely changing up the types of exercises and programs each client does.

This results in a lean figure without the extra bulk - which gives women a tiny dancer body and men a skinny ripped body.

M and M said...

Voila. First Jake is there and then he isn't. The smoke and mirrors headline: Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols on the beach
(02/12/2006)


(Timeline Significance: These photos pairing Austin with SB were manipulated right after the infamous Jake and Austin Laker Game Coupling)

Note Jake’s Shoes
Magic Shoes
Do those laces look familiar to the left?

prairiegirl said...

the infamous Jake and Austin Laker Game Coupling


Where?! Where?!!



Dangit, no one told me about this!!

Special K said...

It wasn't Austin carrying Jake's shoes, but Jakes shoes floating as if my magic next to Austin and he supposed walked with Sophia (who was wearing the same thing) Jan but Austin was with her in Feb. Also there are picture of Sophia and Austin sitting in the sand and the sand and the pier behind them were photoshopped to remove someone's shoes and shadows.

turbulentmouse said...

Ah yes, thanks for the post link! I've seen something almost exactly like that before, actually. Not with these two but another pair of guys that were briefly famous for a short while.

Nice to know the PR tricks are essentially the same across the board.

M and M said...

LOL! PG. I wasn't suggesting there were new photos. If only. Austin and Jake do look like two lovebirds back in 2006, though. Sigh.

Special: I don't think I indicated that Austin was carrying Jake's shoes. I just stated that Jake was there and then he wasn't.

M and M said...

And, yes, the other important point about that photo of Austin and SB supposedly walking along that "deserted" beach is that it was actually taken in late January, but dated after the sizzlin' Austin and Jake Lakers photos hit the Internet.

prairiegirl said...

Wow, just did some sightseeing on this Tracey Anderson method.

Very impressive. She's a bigshot. I can imagine how much those classes must cost because she seems to cater to the stars. I like her theory on working out and stretching different muscles.

Her studios are awesome looking.

Couple of interesting things. She focuses on dance aerobics. They move to music. It's rigorous stuff, too. The ab work made my stomach sore just watching. It looked alot like belly dancing, lol.

That's why it's so interesting to see Jake being into her studios. Her website is all about female celebrities and also spotlights on getting the body to snap back after giving birth and just overall female fitness and well-being. Her recommendations & endorsements are all from female celebrities.

I did dance aerobics for years - high impact and then later on, low impact. Gosh, I used to love doing that stuff. And I loved Richard Simmons. It is so much more fun to exercise & move to music. I just can't do that high impact stuff anymore. It's hard on the knees and on the spine.

I never had hardly any guys in my classes and I took alot of classes in different venues: parks & recreations, health clubs and at a local hospital. I had some guy teachers. And one guy in my class who was actually the husband of my favorite all-time aerobic teacher. I can't hardly remember too many other guys, though.

Just really interesting.

Oh! And another interesting spotlight on the Tracy Andersen website is how she also promotes well-being & working out for people and their partners. That it's great for relationships.

Ahhh, kind of took me back to my ol' aerobic days. Back when I had alot more elasticity to me, lol. If I could start a different career, I would look into how they are teaching aerobics these days - if high impact is still being taught. I think it would be such a good thing to teach people about safety in exercising and the dangers of stuff like step aerobics and alot of high impact exercise.

I would hope that Jake takes some days off. It's not good to over-exercise the body. You have to give your body a day of rest like every 6th or 7th day. You run the risk of tearing something or injuring yourself. Like I always have done - I've had more muscle strains from overdoing.

Oops - going on a sermon there! lol. It's a pet cause of mine.

prairiegirl said...

I thought there were pictures of Austin carrying those shoes.

I must have remembered wrong.


Okay, back to my comment replying. I have been overwhelmed by responses - very uplifting!

Special K said...

M& M - I thought PG said Austin was carrying Jake's shoes. That's what i wanted to clear up

Oh and if anyone asks why Jake's buying baby food, he would say it's Tracy Anderson's cleanse program.

Working on new ingredients for my baby food cleanse. Very excited to share new recipes with my online community! gotracy

The 'spoon used to do the baby food cleanse thing.

honestly said...

I don't need all kinds of outside interference when it wasn't asked for.


No you didn't PG. I know you didn't just make that comment.

The nerve of you. you but into everything anyone says on this blog with your two cents. Especially disagreements. Before the night is over you'll do it at least 5 times. You can't help it.

turbulentmouse said...

Baby food cleanse? Seriously? Ew. I just like the motion of actually chewing not just swallowing mushy pureed food.

I think her studios look awesome but did you see the sample diet G Paltrow put in her GOOP newsletter? It's a step over starvation which sketches me out.

prairiegirl said...

Oh calm down. Yup, the nerve of me! lol. The nerve of me.

And it's butt, not but.

So how many times is that tonight? Did you count?

prairiegirl said...

And it's prairiegirl to you, thanks.

I did say I thought Austin was carrying Jake's shoes! lol. I did, I did!


So that wasn't right? I'll have to look again. I thought he was carrying the shoes Jake had on when he was standing by the car with Sophia in his army green pants.

Special K said...

PG the shoes were just floating next Austin carrying his. Like as if some one had been cut out of the picture carrying Jake's shoes. Hmmm wonder who that could be.

destiny said...

Woohoo. Just came from a panel on White Collar with the cast. More on that tomorrow, other than to say Bomer is just f*cking adorable.

Thanks for the bit about Elton from People PG. I guess that's how he justified it to himself, but of course totally disagree with his take on marriage.

Baby food--ick!!!! Interesting about the classes, I prefer a smaller toned Jake, so I kind of like the idea of what he's doing.

Turbulentmouse, another thing about the mystery Sophin photos from 2006 is that in one of the pictures of them sitting on the beach you can actually see a 5th leg they forgot to photoshop out. LOL, that was sure an amateur job.

prairiegirl said...

Oh, I see now!! lol.

See, it floated right on by me.


LOL! I had to go back and look at that post. I'm glad you re-put that back up. I also re-read that little ditty about some guy being introduced to Austin.

Hey, that's a hot story. So Austin was kind of flirting with that guy, huh? But alas, no carrot. That is an awesome story. I'll have to look back and see who was on this show called Surface - Austin or the guy who was writing about having the boy crush on Austin. So I wonder who was trying to set him up with Austin?

This is quite a ravishing little story. Gosh, we're always reading about Jake eyeballing some guy but we never read about Austin's man history. The only thing I've ever seen him do is flirt with Robert-o and that was sure put to a screeching halt. :(

M and M said...

Oh, thank goodness, PG. I thought I had made a magical shoe mistake. Wouldn't want to misrepresent such a delicious demonstration of PR distortion/manipulation when it comes to J&A. Shhh. *lowers voice for affect* Be careful. There are some folks around here who might think this was a conspiracy, or something. LOL!

prairiegirl said...

And I've not heard about the 5th leg, I don't think.


This is a night of revelations, lol.

$20 says PG loses said...

So how many times is that tonight? Did you count?

It's 4. She has one more butt in left.

You'll exceed your limit. Let's see if I'm right. She can't help it.

prairiegirl said...

hey, now!!!

M& M - I thought PG said Austin was carrying Jake's shoes. That's what i wanted to clear up.


lol. Hey, is that anything like, "And don't forget to log me out and change the name before you even start typing!"



LOLLLLLLLL!!!! snicker.

I'll never forget that.

snicker. That was worth a double snicker.

prairiegirl said...

Aw, my fan club's back!! They'll follow me anywhere and everywhere, won't they.

And that's $20 says Prairiegirl loses to you, thanks.


You two want to be sure & catch my train, will you? Don't let it hit the ground. thanks. Oh! and sorry - no autographs tonight, please. I vant to be alone now.

Max said...

no autographs tonight, please. I vant to be alone now.

But Madam, You ARE Alone.

You Arrhhh

prairiegirl said...

Oh no, I'm not. You're right here, following me just like I want.

pupa said...

Stand up straight

m said...

As I recall not only were the shoes floating in air but an entire portion of the pier near them was as well. Someone got so zealous with photoshop they wiped out a structural support. Then there was McConoughy's party where an entire crowd was created around Austin, complete with people with extra arms, legs etc.

I spotted another retroactive remaking of history today. An article stated that Jake said he turned down the role in Avatar. James Cameron said several times in the past weeks that the studio kept pushing for Jake but he wanted Worthington. I wonder which is the correct version.

'Jake who?!' said...

*Disclaimer for the benefit of trolls: Austin is wearing a ring on his hand. Do not allow yourself to be distracted from this fact. I repeat, Austin is wearing a ring on his hand.

LOL

Jewelry, GG ads and "photoshopped" pictures - everything is better than discussing another Austin's "Jake who?! I'm dating a woman!" shoutout.

silly trolls said...

4:38 trolly, stop playing stupid. Austin is gay as a goose

prairiegirl said...

A ha!! Eureka! I may have found the one.

Sorry, but that little party story won't leave me. I find Austin's obscure history rather fascinating in some regards.

I wonder if this guy isn't the one who wrote that ditty about meeting Austin at that party in 2005.

This guy was on Surface, which was a short-lived science fiction NBC show during 2005. It wasn't renewed after being interrupted by the Olympics, blah blah, blah.

But he was on Surface, born in 1975 (lol, he was about the only guy listed on the cast who was anywhere near Austin's age). His name was Jay R Ferguson and he was born in Dallas, TX, moved to southern California when he was a child.

Now here was an interesting bit. This is from The Surface Area.com:

Jay has been referred to by the paparazzi as a member of actor Leonardo DiCaprio's "Posse", a group that partied with DiCaprio and accompanied him during shoots, which consisted mainly of former child stars. This group also included illusionist David Blaine and Spider-Man actor Tobey Maguire.

What is this about Leo's posse? I've never heard of this before.

Anyway, this guy is quite a looker, or was depending on when the pictures on this webpage were taken. He also played "Ponyboy" on the series "The Outsiders". I think everyone's probably read that adolescent book at some time or another.

So does anyone know where this story about the party appeared? Is it from Ted?

I know this is old history, but I find it intriguing all the same. We never read anything saucy about Austin.

prairiegirl said...

And I have to go hit the shower but here's the website if you want to take a look at this guy:

(sorry, I haven't fulfilled my 2010's New Year's resolution yet regarding my self improvement on hyperlinks!)

http://www.thesurfacearea.com/castcrew/jayrferguson.html

sorry, sorry! I will work on that.


Love the T shirt picture.

m said...

What's got the trolls all stirred up? It must be the doctored photos of Austin & Sophia. Ted will confirm this to OMG'ers through his subtle hints.

prairiegirl said...

The kneeling T shirt picture, not the first one.


m, I think someone's hijacked your name. I doubt whether you're up right now.

model said...

PG, the guy who told that story wasn't in Surface. He was a male model that used to have a blog that he later deleted it. He mentioned Surface because at the time Austin was working in that tv series as a guest star. The model guy was introduced to Austin at a party and thought he could have a chance with him, but Austin was there with Jake.

prairiegirl said...

Oh.



lol. Darnit all. I thought I had something there. Oh, so Austin was on that show. Okay, gotcha!


Man, model, you sank my battleship.
lol.

Thanks, though! Appreciate it.

lol said...

more prairiefrau delusions debunked

prairiegirl said...

**smooch** to you, lol.

LOL, hey, sometimes the paint sticks to the canvas, sometimes it doesn't.

Still a hot story. I would like to have seen the model, anyway!

m said...

Thanks PG. Nope that was not me. FYI, I used to watch Surface. It was a bit hokey and I saw it in reruns, not when it ran originally. But Austin looked super in it. Austin looks great around water.
