Chew Your Food

Last September OMG wondered if Jake would appear on the then new show that Mario Batali co-hosting. 

And guess what?  This Thursday Jake is.

Jake is the guest on The Chew and he will be joining his friend Mario, along with the other co-hosts, Carla Hall, Michael Simons, Daphne Oz and Clinton Kelly.

If you can't check out the show on TV(Check local listing for time and channel) you can watch entire episode online at The Chew online.

So what do you think is the foodie talk for Jake's episode?

Farmer's Market Free for all.

Pot roast.  The way to a man's heart.

 I love Kale. It's easy being green.

The Little Pizza oven in schoolyard.

Mystery ingredient mash up


How to cook an Ipad.

This Mini- Ipad tastes just like the real thing.

Let's just hope Jake won't go for the hokey jokes like he did on Malto Mario.

I'm trying hard not to believe that Romney stands a chance. If he wins, we will be going backward for sure. Like being in Iran, Iraq or whatever for their thinking. I dont understand how any woman can be pro Romney. The power of the old, white male is incredible, but this may be their last gasp. Obama is so obviously intelligent, thoughtful and cautious. Romney is the classic entitled white male. Not even that smart. Just powerful because of who he knows and daddy.

Taylor Swift 'Red' liner notes: Jake Gyllenhaal gets off easy, plus a song for Ethel Kennedy

Today is the day that a new Taylor Swift album was released, so obviously we're doing our duty as Americans and over-analyzing her lyrics and her not-so-subtle liner note codes. True to form, Swift painstakingly sifted through the lyrics in her liner notes (which are not only tucked into the CD, but available as an iTunes download) and capitalized specific letters. Since we have too much time on our hands, we took careful notes and did a whole bunch of research so you don't have to. You're welcome.

The first song on the album, "State of Grace," basically says that love is worthwhile even if it's difficult. Her hidden code, LOVE DOESN'T COUNT AFTER GOODBYE, implies a change of heart. Given the reference to Sagittarius and blue eyes, we're putting this one in the Jake Gyllenhaal column.

Which brings us to "Red," about a reckless, fast-paced love that ends abruptly. Swift compares this relationship to "driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street," because driving a $140,000 car is totally something most of her fans can relate to. The capital letters on this one spell out SAG -- again, referring to Jake's astrological sign. (In case you're wondering about her obsession with his sign, it's probably because they both share it, and because most of their brief relationship happened during the Sagittarius star sign. They broke up less than two weeks after his Dec. 19 birthday.)

The songs "Treacherous" and "I Knew You Were Trouble" follow, both of them, again, recounting a relationship that was dangerous from the get-go. Respectively, Taylor's secret codes spell out "WON'T STOP TIL IT'S OVER" and "WHEN YOU SAW ME DANCING." This means very little to us.

"All Too Well" might as well have been titled "A Sad Love Letter to Jake Gyllenhaal." The least subtle song on the album references everything from Jake's glasses-wearing younger days, to his sister Maggie, to the scarf she wore in all those snuggly paparazzi photos of the two of them sipping maple lattes. Oh, and the code words are MAPLE LATTES, so, there's that.

The song "22," which basically sounds like it was swept from Ke$ha's cutting room floor, is about a super-awesome fun night with girlfriends, when Taylor totally forgot about all the angst and strife that comes with being a very wealthy, beautiful, and successful woman. She dedicates her song to her other super-hot, super-successful BFFs in the code words: ASHLEY (Greene) DIANNA (Agron) CLAIRE (Calloway) and SELENA (Gomez). (Um, what happened to Tay Tay's former BFF Abigail? Did she just ditch her for the Twilight/Glee/Disney crowd?)

The secret "I Almost Do" message is WROTE THIS INSTEAD OF CALLING and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" includes the message WHEN I STOPPED CARING WHAT YOU THOUGHT. These two are quite obviously linked -- both are about a guy who keeps trying to get in touch with Taylor. In the first song, she's considering getting back together with him. In the second song, she decides not to. Like. Ever. We've already done the analysis here: Our best guess is that this one is about Parachute frontman Will Anderson. Gyllenhaal just doesn't seem like the type to send booty-call texts. (Shh. Allow us our illusions.)

"Stay Stay Stay" isn't about anyone. Taylor wrote it after she was over Parachute dude and on her way to moving on from Gyllenhaal -- as she admits in the code, she was just DAYDREAMING ABOUT REAL LOVE. Not actually indulging in it. It's a cute little ditty about a guy who loves her despite the fact that she is a general pain in the you-know-what.
LA ON YOUR BREAK is the message hidden in "The Last Time," Taylor's duet with Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody. We're so obsessed with Snow Patrol that we sort of wish Lightbody was above singing a song that's pretty obviously about John Mayer, who took a major break from his career last year and made a few under-the-radar sojourns to Los Angeles.

"Holy Ground" is a song about a relationship that ended, but of which Taylor still has fond memories. Considering the code words are WHEN YOU CAME TO THE SHOW IN SD, and Joe Jonas is the only Swift ex who regularly attends her concerts, this one is definitely about him. It's actually kind of nice to see that after skewering him on her album "Fearless" and skewering Camilla Belle in the song "Better Than Revenge," Taylor and the middle JoBro are on pretty good terms these days.

And then there's "Sad Beautiful Tragic." Has there ever been a more Taylor Swift-y song title ever? The song (about beautiful tragic sadness) contains several references to a train, and the code words spell out WHILE YOU WERE ON A TRAIN. It might be referencing Gyllenhaal's time touring on a train with Mumford & Sons, though that tour happened several months after Taylor and Gyllenhaal broke up. (Who are we kidding? Of course she was still pining for him several months later.)

"The Lucky One" is about a singer or a movie star whose fame burned out a little bit quickly after her secrets ended up in tabloids and she was replaced by younger, prettier versions of herself. The code words are WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW, so there aren't many hints here, except that the celeb in question uses a stage name and spent some time on the French Riviera. Our best guess is that it's a made-up Marilyn Monroe sort. Taylor seems the type to have a vivid imagination.
Her duet with Ed Sheeran, called "Everything Has Changed," is an obvious reference to Conor Kennedy, with HYANNIS PORT spelled out in the capital letters... uh, even though she wrote the song before they met. Wishful thinking, perhaps?

"Starlight" was written for Taylor's bestie, Ethel Kennedy, as revealed by the FOR ETHEL note in the liner... though somehow we doubt the Kennedy matriarch will be studying Taylor's lyrics. The song, which includes the line "I'm with Bobby on the boardwalk, summer of '45," was inspired by an old photograph of Ethel and Robert Kennedy.

And, finally, "Begin Again" reveals the origins of the new relationship (with Kennedy) that helped Taylor get over her old relationship (with Gyllenhaal). In the song, she talks about not being able to wear heels with her former boyfriend -- Gyllenhaal is barely taller than she is -- and the liner code is I WEAR HEELS NOW. We're all super happy for you, Taylor.

All in all, Gyllenhaal was pretty laid bare in this album -- but compared to some of her previous records and ex-boyfriends, we think that the actor got off easy. He might come off as a slightly creepy scarf-sniffer in "All Too Well," but mostly Taylor's memories of him seem relatively fond. He certainly isn't accused of taking advantage of her youth, like John Mayer was, or of ditching her for a slutty actress, like Joe Jonas was. Heck, he wasn't even condescended to (Kanye West) or emasculated (Taylor Lautner).

We're betting that Taylor's going to get her scarf back real quick, though.

That's Going to Leave a Mark

Scary thing is that some people might actually believe this relationship was real. It is all about making the fangirls think they have a shot at Jake. For Tayor it sells her silly music

Gee you could have spared us all and just posted the link. What a waste of blog space. tsk tsk.

First of all, isn't that interesting. Look who wrote that article.

Ol' cadlymack. Remember her? She's best buds with ol' Soapy. Cadlymack is the one who asked Austin that set-up question about him wanting kids someday and then Austin had to go and pull a Jake, going on about his nieces/nephews and wishing upon a star that he should be so lucky in life to become a father someday. **sniff**

Gets me all choked up just thinking about it.

Second of all, after reading this article and how Red is mostly "supposedly" about Jake (which has to be the most asked question, is it really? Which song? Gasp!), a couple of observations now that the first initial dust has settled from the gravel-kicking start of this CD release.

You know what? You cannot pay for this kind of publicity. Jake with all his piggy bank coins and $2 bills, couldn't come up with the cash for this kind of name-dropping and publicity.

This CD has been atop of ITunes since the release of the first single which came about a month before the release of Red. She still has 3 songs in the top 10 downloads. In the cyber world as far as his name is concerned, this is just about all you see. Free publicity. Not only free publicity but free hetero publicity. It's a 2 fer.

Another observation since the release of this CD.

What a couple of weeks of anonymity this CD has bought him. Because isn't this funny. Since the twitter/FB yak started about this CD amid the week leading up to and including its release, there's been no "routine NYC" yak about him. The stage door photos have practically stopped. The trains. The "bumping into's". The "meeting of the eyes". The "ran into's". Pffft! Nada. Poof!

Isn't that interesting indeed. Let the paid JG tweeters put their feet up for awhile and put Swift's paid army to work for awhile. Because I would like to know why all of the "normal" status quo stops while her army takes up all that space.

And lastly, when I heard that Conan had put up that cute grade school picture of Jake, I remember asking someone "What did Jake say about it?"

What indeed. "you were a kid in glasses and a twin sized bed".

That's why that picture was brought out. Conan was tipped to bring it out as a little subliminal tease for one of the songs.

What I had hoped was an honest moment was not an honest moment. Like a lot of things these days...just a set up. Just a plant. Just a part of the plan.

prairiegirl said...

I would like to go on the record as speculating that I would not be at all surprised if Jake were getting a cut from Tay from some of the money going to be earned from Red. Would not be surprised whatsoever.

Jersey Tom said...

That is very likely PG as Reese got a cut of PoP.
