To market to market

You can take away the Hollywood but you can't take the farmers market out of the fella.
Looks like this morning Jake was at the Farmers Market in West Tisbury, on The Vineyard.
So jealous @lindenmia got to see Jake Gyllenhaal at the WT Farmers Market and i'm at work... oh well. - AdoreLaVie

And no doubt he knows all the farms that bring the best to market, best friend's included. And all the veggies, fruits and flowers are island grown. Every Saturday and Wednesday morning during the summer, the farmers pick their best and bring it to the West Tisbury center. And beside island grown fruit and produce there's baked goods, jams, salsas, and spring rolls?!?

Even Atti is welcome as long as he's on a leash. (Not that well behaved boy needs one, but rules are rules)

The market started before Jake was born, and no doubt a part of his summers growing up. Does anyone else remember an story of selling muffins when they were little?

Jake's talked about his Island summers; building sand castles with his dad on the beach, friends, mom's garden, summer jobs and of course the jellyfish story. But did you know that he and Maggie graced the stage there as well? Yes they both participated at Vineyard Playhouse as part of their summer season.

Those are some of the things Jake's done there, but he'll never go on a Starbucks run or grab McDonald's. Because he swore off Starbucks and would never grace the Golden Arches? Well maybe.

But for sure won't do them there is because they are not allowed on the island, in fact no chain stores are. There are no 24 hour places to grab a snack, and he's never find a stoplight, well except the one blinking red light on entire the island.

What does do get there? Local shops, great food, beautiful beaches, wonderful memories who wouldn't want to share that.

With IHJ posting new "old" pictures, including the Lakers it reminded me of a thought I had about the guy with Jake.

Could it be Adam Levine's brother?

Here's a picture of Adam

And a picture from the Championship Game

There are similarities in hair nose and the shape of their ears. It would make sense that Jake could hang out with them, since they all grew up together. And all of them going out after the Lakers won. Why wouldn't they sit together, easier to get 2 tickets together than 4 together at a game.

Just a thought.

He's bearding and trying his best to look straight.

ITA. I don't think Jake and Austin are leaving themselves any wiggle room on anything. They're not ever going to come out--or not until they're old and gray and BT is just another fucked up adult child of HW.

That's okay, I really don't care anymore. The world is passing them by, and there are plenty of other stars who are going to be out or living in glass closets who are going to have far better careers to watch.

Speaking of glass closets, a really good friend of mine was in a vegetarian restaurant in the village for lunch yesterday and saw Anderson Cooper and his boyfriend. She said they were holding hands under the table.



Couldnt say it any better.

Anderson and Bomer may not be out Destiny but the glass closet is so much better than what we have been getting with J and A. Just aint gonna happen. They are two scared to death insecure men.

Anderson cooper and his bf holding hands under the table? Sounds strange. They always seem so distant in pictures...

How did she see that they were holding hands anyways?

I'm not saying your friend was lying Tom. I just want to know more because AC and his bf always look grumpy in public lol

Jersey Tom said...

It was Destinys friends who saw AC and his BF. I think Anderson is pretty much out except he hasnt expressed it publicly. Sure sounds that way.

DC Pierson and Cobie Smulders Join Gyllenhaal's 'Grassroots'

Stephen Gyllenhaal, father of Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal, is better known for directing television episodes than feature films, but that may soon change thanks to his political comedy, Grassroots. The film, which is an adaptation of Phil Campbell's memoir Zioncheck for President: A True Story of Idealism and Madness in American Politics, had already assembled an interesting little cast, but its two latest members have locked it down as 'keep an eye on this one' film for me: DC Pierson (one of the founding members of Derrick Comedy, star of Mystery Team, and author of The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To) and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother, The L Word).

The Wrap (via Film School Rejects) tells us the two comedians are joining Jason Biggs, Joel David Moore, Lauren Ambrose, Tom Arnold, Cedric the Entertainer, Christopher McDonald and Emily Bergl. Biggs will play Campbell, an ex-reporter who agrees to run his eccentric friend's (Moore) campaign for a seat on the Seattle City Council. Ambrose will be filling in as Biggs' girlfriend, Smulders a skeptic of Moore's absurd campaign, Arnold as a supportive bartender, and the Entertainer as the incumbent Moore is gunning for.

I haven't read Campbell's memoir, but the Amazon descriptions of the stories the author recounts have bumped it to the top of my to-read pile. The Wrap doesn't peg who Pierson (who doesn't spend enough time in front of the camera, if you ask me) is playing, but personally I'm hoping it's Campbell's roommate, described by Publisher's Weekly as an "off-center alcoholic with a new handgun he can't stop playing with."

Oh shoot sorry Tom. I thought that was your comment too.

Then my post is directed towards Destiny.

I think Anderson is basically out, I would even say he is out publicly. He just has not made a statement himself. He doesn't deny anything said about him and his bf. There are tons of pics of them together that anyone can find. That is pretty public.

I guess you could say that is a glass closet. But gay people, who are not celebrities, who are out in every aspect of their life except publicly...would that be considered a glass closet too?

Like if a friend of mine had a relationship and everyone knew they were gay except acquaintances and they never tell everyone they meet that they are gay but those people could easily find out...is that a glass closet? Or is it just that they are out completely but they never make a statement, or feel the need to let everyone know?

Or does a "glass closet" only apply to celebrities?

MV sounds like a great place to get some R&R. Jake is lucky to have a charmed life, POP criticism not withstanding.

I'm waiting for Inception to open in July. That film looks very interesting to me. Spoke to my sister earlier today and she had just watched Brothers. She liked it a lot. I think I would have liked it more had I not seen the original.

simply because you take fantasies for reality.

My Therapist thinks Jake is Gay and that reeke was fake. He is not sure Austin and Jake are still together and doesnt believe in BT.

Darn I missed that one SK. Somebody must have said something awful about me. I love blogging it is a lot of fun.

Happy 4th everyone. Have fun.


Congrats Rafa. Wimbleton Champion.

prairiegirl said...

Nah, you didn't miss anything, Tom, because I think that was ol' ECF paying a little visit. Could be wrong but that was his typical MO.

Happy 4th to the Americans!!! It's cloudy, soggy, but still full of boom, pow & pop. Already had my barbeque (Johnny's - THE best) for the holiday, a McD caramel frappe, friend time, even some red roses, and best of all, all the Curley lovin' and Curley time a person could want.

All this quiet & lack of visibility makes me hope that the terrible twosome (lol) are actually maybe together with FAM and trying to have a MV 4th of July.

Let us hope so.
