Surprised by Joy

Not really the question you hear often in interviews or expect for a surf event.

But here's Austin talking about spirituality, and finding it in the great outdoors, and doing what he loves, that brings him joy.



Why is hiking, running, and biking sound more this smiling fella, than someone else Austin has spent time with the last season or so.


That smile looks familiar.



One more piece of Austin news - His newest movie LOL was picked up by Lionsgate. Lionsgate has obtained the U.S. rights from Mandate Pictures. An April release date is rumored.

It could be a double movie date in April for the fellows.

Happy Austin Friday!

Jack and the fangirl stir the most, bur there is a third style on occassion and I think it is PR.

What makes you think it's PR. Is it the writing style? What? Give us an example.

We’ll just have to disagree on this one, Stubborn, although that certainly won’t be anything new since we don’t usually agree on much, lol.

I do think you are mistaken if you think all that crap was from just Jack and Prophecy Girl. I too recognize alot of Jack's tendencies just like I'm sure alot of people notice mine. I don’t know this Profit Girl from Adam but I can’t believe she’d be hanging out on these two blogs for at least four days straight for about 14 hours straight.

Nope. Jake’s people have been without a doubt in my mind trolling on here and on WFT2. They’re spilling the exact kind of hateful garbage that Jake must have spinning in his head from their lightbulb tactics of submission beating.

We know for a fact that Jake’s PR has been on OMG in the past.

Not that it's really a point spending much time on. But the fact that both these guys are back to their bearding means Jake's people are bound & determined to have him play straight the rest of his career. And I think that means they'd love to shut these blogs down because in their little minds, as they've stated numerous times in their rants, We are to Blame for Jake's Situation.

Great pumpkin carving job from Austin. But now I all I can hear in my head is the theme from Thundercats!

Damn you Austin Nichols damn you. : D


Now we know how Jake got the black mark on those boots, its from the clutch on the bike.

Watching the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and trying to psych myself up to prep for cooking for 60 on Sunday.

Special K said...

Oh yes. Jake can work the powder blue shirt.

PR and Co. Pls join a blog that you actually like ~ as opposed to coming on night and day to spew abusive misspelled directives. Clearly you and a few others do not agree (vehemently) with those who regularly visit OMG. That is fine, it is a free country.

What is not fine is when your daily opinions cross over a border line into abuse and constant unmindful sarcasm. Special believes in non-censorship. She allows your comments to be posted. The thanks she gets is you feel entitled to being more and more abusive.

It is surreal anyone would spend the hours per day you and some other anti-OMG'ers spend here.

And the time you each spend making up new names each time you post an abusive comment? Sad.

Next time you rant about how OMG'ers are spending their time then pls get up and look into a mirror.

In truth you are spending more time here than OMG's regulars.

May be time to consider moving on to a site you actually derive pleasure from?

Or using the time you consider "wasted" here doing something good like volunteer work. If you don't like or agree with the views expressed on the blog there are literally dozens of Jake-centric sites whose entire existence supports your beliefs.

Stop using OMGers as your punching bag. Abuse and interesting dialogue are two different things.

Just some humble thoughts.

Speaking of Spirituality.

You usually hear of pastors being outed through some indiscretion. This story is not that story.

ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. -- The pastor of a Rockdale County megachurch has publicly announced he is gay.

Jim Swilley, bishop of Conyers’ Church in the Now, said he hopes his coming out will change attitudes toward homosexuality.

“I know a lot of straight people think it is a choice. It is not,” Swilley told Channel 2’s Diana Davis.

Swilley, 52, founded the church 25 years ago. He seemed the stereotypical picture of a pastor, with four kids and a wife who doubled as his associate pastor. But Swilley said he's known he was gay since he was little boy. He said his wife, Debye, also knew his secret from the start.

“I think some women marry gay men because they really think they can change them,” Swilley said.

The now-divorced couple kept their secret for 21 years, but earlier this year, Swilley said Debye told him it was time to stop living a lie.

She said he should practice what he preaches and follow the church’s motto, “Real people experiencing a real God in the real world.”

So, Swilley came out to his kids and his congregation. He said he knew he might risk everything, but the recent rash of gay teen suicides pushed him over the edge.

“As a father, thinking about your 16, 17 year old killing themselves. I thought somebody needed to say something,” Swilley said through tears.

He says he's received support from many in his congregation, but at least one conservative Christian blog has called him sick, twisted, unclean and an instrument of the devil.

“I know all the hateful stuff that’s being written about me online, whatever,” Swilley said. “To think about saving a teenager yeah, I'll risk my reputation for that.”

Seems to be a lot of furor surrounding the critism of Jake and Talyor.. I definitely see some desperation from whomever it is coming from. They seem to be pushing the relationship right along though. I def sense some desperation though.. I get the feeling that there is some worry now that LAOD may not go over as big as they thought. All about the game and how it is played in HW. Jake says he is ready to step away if need be and I believed him at the NYC interview. I no longer believe him. This is one ambitious man who is doing everything he can to keep his career gong. No matter what it takes.

prairiegirl said...

Who knows what to believe anymore about Jake, Tom? I sure don't. He says one thing out of one side of his mouth and then something the exact opposite from the other side.

This Taylor Swift cd in the making story moved with the speed of a tumbleweed in Wichita KS. There wasn't even any floating rumors.

Bam!! They're dating, they've been dating for 3-4 weeks already and they're already holding hands. **gasp!**

What I can't wait to hear is how and where they were supposed to have met.

A Cracker Barrel?

Whole Foods Produce section?

Coney Island?

Build a Bear?


That apple orchard story is the laughing stock of the celebrity gossip circuit. Do those 2 realize how utterly stupid it looks?

And Jake springs for a big $3 bucks to pay for their apples.LOL. What were they? Crab apples?

Do you know how expensive apples have been all summer long and even this fall? One honeycrisp apple alone costs $2.99 a lb.

I mean, I would expect to see a story like that for a Justin Berber/ Selena Gomez story.

Not a 29 and 20 year old.

Hey, ding! Just had an idea. Maybe Tay Tay is really going to be BT's babysitter.

prairiegirl said...

If I do sound extra crabby, it's because today was the PITS at work and I need to go in tomorrow. Work is seriously messing with my Cowboy Up Halloween One-Shot.

Tonight was fun though.

And my Big Buddy tells me that while I heard a Minot ND pronunciation from Jim Cantore on The Weather Channel, he heard Mi-not ND on The Discovery Channel. LOLLLL!!! I wonder which it really is.

prairiegirl said...

LOL, I'm falling asleep in my chair. I need to go to bed. Gosh, I'm so tired.

the real m said...

I don't really care who the troll is but I don't think it is Prophecy girl or however you spell it. I don't think she even likes Jake anymore. I followed her a couple of years ago and her feelings were hurt by Steven in a big way. When you read her blog now you can make out an undercurrent of hostility. As for the other trolls, they are so transparent, I just scroll after a few words.

Hey, I thought that was an Austin smile too. Jake's shirt is open and on the verge of revealing what is on the chain but doesn't quite. Frustrating.

I'm not convinced he is bearding yet. He could just be bored hanging around with his mother and showing TS around a bit. I saw her clip from Ellen and she did not get all shy and giggly or beam when they talked about Jake. No sign of any feelings there at all. If there is an arrangement, as Ted calls it, I don't think it will last past the LAOD launch. And yes, this is a sign that they are worried about the film.

prairiegirl said...

I say bearding, m, because while it's not the full thrust of a Reeke, it's way more than just a casual mention.

Urban Dictionary refers to a beard as a slang term describing a person who is used, knowingly or unknowingly, as a date, romantic partner, or spouse either to conceal infidelity or to conceal one's sexual orientation. The term can be used in heterosexual and homosexual contexts, but with increasing acceptance of LGBT culture, references to beards are seen in mainstream television and movies as well as other entertainment.

Also,

Recognized usage of "beard" applies to a person who serves to camouflage another's sexual orientation.[3] An example is a gay man pretending to date a woman, in an effort to conceal his sexuality.

For myself, full throttle photo ops and nice, glossy 8x10 magazine spreads aren't necessary.

The fact that this story was given to People magazine and is on the cover of US Weekly is enough proof that Jake's people and TayTay's people wanted this story to float.

prairiegirl said...

Those grainy, supposed to look like they were spied upon pictures of the big, first leaked photos are clearly supposed to look like a date or possibly double date. I can't tell if that one guy is along, too or not.

But look at Jake. He's dressed up in "date clothes", rocking the slacks and a nice sweater.

That sure isn't what he was wearing all summer long as Grizzly Adams.

Whether the story continues to float down the river awhile or not, to myself, is beside the point. And even if it doesn't go past LAOD's release, TayTay is being used as a beard and hey, possibly Jake himself is also being used as a beard for her.

I'm not convinced that ol' TayTay isn't using all these guys as beards.

What 20 year old girl who is on Forbes List for $$ & success in 2010 needs to date a string like she has? Why isn't she in real relationships? Well, she very well may have a real one behind the curtains; I shouldn't be so stupid. If she's bearding herself, that could be exactly what she's doing.

I've read the People article from the issue that she was on the cover of this past week and after reading it, my thinking is that TayTay's a totally production-lined well-crafted, fake commodity.

m, I don't know if you saw I'm writing a Halloween one-shot. It's moving along just grandly.

However, I don't think the Park Ranger is going to like it one bit.


Alright, so who is going to be handing out the best treats at their house?!! I'll be there.

When I was little, there was a house several blocks away that handed out popcorn balls. Everyone wanted one of those popcorn balls. I can remember getting one only a few times because they were usually out of them by the time we got there.

And we used to take our paper grocery bags to school and we'd get to decorate them in crayons. Man, I loved doing that.

LOLLLL - and we'd go parade down the street from the school in our little costumes.

LOLLLLLL!!!!

Kind of embarrassing now when I think about it, but oh well!

Hope that everyone gets a chance to watch the this little snippet with Austin from Surfrider. It's a chance to see a little more about who he is.

Special K said...

Halloween- those plastic masks you couldn't really see out of and the elastic breaking 6 houses in. Haunted houses out in the barns from the people from church. My brother wearing a colander on his head as part of his homemade robot costume. Me dressing up as Tammi Faye Bakker with double set of fake eyelashes heavy make up, carrying a microphone, and looking for Jim and Jessica Hahn.
