No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family."

"In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their pleas is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfilment for themselves Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right."

What a historic day for the United States.  The last block of equality to fall.  Truly all are now equal.  Equal to love who they love and be recognize.

The response is overwhelming and was immediate from around the world. Talk about the lives of so many changing in an instant.

Many  headlines today started with Hollywood's response to marriage equality and shared the tweets of individuals celebrating this historic ruling.

But that is not Hollywood's response.  Those are individual responses.

The  real Hollywood response that needs to be seen is to stop this idea that leading stars and storylines must be straight.

Hello Hollywood look around..... the world is beyond the idea that the only way is straight.    Bring the equality to Hollywood  that the world is embracing.

The world is moving ahead of you .... catch up.

Speaking of catching up....

Today Sundance Channel had a poll of those LGTB movie couples that they would like to see married.   And what couple led the votes?

Oh you know it.

Brokeback broke barriers when it came to the screen. But it was ahead of time for many.

Looking back from there to now it is monumental how much change has happened.

Hollywood catch up and those in Hollywood you too  

The world is different place, those baby steps 

can become strides of pride  now.

you too big guy .... remember you tweeting this video


Florida Tom said...

Great post. Thanks SK. Very special day yesterday :-) I am very glad Jake took part in the celebration. :-)

Florida Tom said...

I was really surprised Jake did what he did yesterday. Of course he knows now that the Gay rumors have been pretty well squashed but I do not think he would have done that a year or two ago.. He would have been mortified :-)

Destiny said...

I agree Tom, this is great post Special. I've been thinking of BBM and that era, which is some ways feels like another lifetime ago.

It is unfortunate how little has changed in HW. I really wish some big stars would come out and force some change on the industry.

Florida Tom said...

Destiny I was thinking how much BBM helped changed the minds of people and began an era of change that lead to this week. I am grateful to those who made Brokeback possible and helped change the world including Jake.

i just want to put my tiny baby jake gyllenhaal into my pocket and feed him leftovers so he can grow big and strong love you little guy

LOLLLLL. I just happened to think about this tweet and decided to dig it out of my emails. It still makes me practically fall onto the floor laughing. Probably my all-time favorite tweet.

I love revisiting old tweets sometimes. This one was just a classic.

prairiegirl said...

This is just too funny/unbelievable not to share.

So my favorite player right now is Hos, #35 - Mr. Eric Hosmer of the KC Royals. He's quite the eyecatching, handsome fellow and he reminds me alot of Jared - he's 6'5", dark haired and pretty lean and fit. He's very physically demonstrative, pretty touchy feely with his teammates. He appears to be very close with one or two teammates in particular. And I have to say that it really caught my eye that he had so many pictures out on the internet of him with his girlfriend(s) - you know, ones with the girl on his lap, etc. That's not outrageous, but I had to say that it kind of stood out to me for some reason.


This weekend, here comes this story in the Kansas City Star that Hos has himself a new girlfriend Kacie McDonnell and it was breaking alot of Hos fans' hearts because he is very popular with the ladies. And it wasn't the story that caught my eye - it was the pictures that went with it. I guess he and the girlfriend both posted prom-like pictures of themselves together on their Instagram pages. She's gorgeous - and she had on this skin tight white dress and it was just a bit over the top kind of picture.

Well, the comments on the story mentioned that she was a local TV traffic reporter as well as a member of the broadcast crew for the KC soccer team. But it wasn't just that.

What caught my eye was that she had been engaged to the KC Chiefs QB - Aaron Murray. They had just broken up this past January. Hmm. So I look up his picture and boy, if he wasn't a very adorable fella. And the story was that she even followed him here to Kansas City.


Then as I read a bit more in comment sections, guess what? It just so happens that this chick also used to date another quarterback - Christian Ponder of the Minnesota Vikings. Mr. Ponder broke up with Kacie and went on to marry some ESPN gal, some "private civil" courthouse ceremony. uh huh.

So this Kacie McDonnell seems to float from traffic reporter job to traffic reporter job, following these athletes around. She poses in a real skimpy outfits with these guys, showing everyone that the athlete is getting "some of this" and then they break up. Then she moves on to the next really good looking athlete.

If it smells like and looks like and sounds like a beard?

It probably is.

I think my boy Hos is likely gay.


You know, I've been watching this stuff now long enough that I am to the point where these patterns and practices just stand out to me. I would be very, very surprised if Eric isn't gay.

Destiny said...

Very interesting PG about the sports beard. I know there are celebs and models that have clearly been beards for athletes, but I didn't know there were any professional beards out there in sports.

Florida Tom said...

Happy Canada Day Seaweed :-)

Florida Tom said...

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!!

Destiny said...

Happy 4th of July, and a belated Happy Canada Day to Seaweed.

Jake got a rave review in the New York Times for Little Shop of Horrors. The reviewer said he could be a big Broadway star if he wanted to go that route. The Wall Street Journal said something similar in an article that was more a story than" a review.

<a href=">NYT Review</a>

Happy 4th to every one. Have a safe and happy holiday.

I left a Happy Fourth to all message but dont see it so am saying it again. I may have forgot to hit enter.

USA USA USA !!!!!!!

prairiegirl said...

Happy Belated 4th to everyone!

Congratulations to the women winning the World Cup!!!

Congratulations to the Royals for winning today!!!

;D Gotta cover all the bases.

prairiegirl said...

Well, I never really thought about it that much either, Dest, but I tell you what. I firmly believe that Giselle is bearding for Tom Brady. They show all the signs of a bearding couple.

And I'm just getting so accustomed to certain phrases and patterns of behavior. They really do seem to borrow from the same briefcase and I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Hos is just too willing to share all these pics with his 'girlfriends'. And this gal just happens to hook up with all these players and every time the relationship goes south?

She's a traveling show. And Eric, with his looks and all, could get some endorsements if he has a successful season. He's pretty high profile and has had two SI covers.

There's money in endorsements, I guess. That's about the only thing I can think of, unless anyone else has any input on the subject.

Go America! said...

USA USA USA !!!!!!!

prairiegirl said...

Do re!!!!!

lol. This is a test.

Testing 1..2..3

prairiegirl said...

Sorry sorry. We're dropping the ball and we have got to get our asses in gear here. This is just unacceptable!!!


Between work and Supernatural stuff and trying to finish my current fanfic chapter, there still isn't any excuse except I hate moderation!!! I hate it.

But it's the way it has to be so we've got to bear with it. I know I am pledging to do better. I really will try to do better on this blog.

It's still very important. We're not going anywhere. And believe me, I am still looking and seeing things - so much of it is just crap though, and I have a hard time bringing it here.

I apologize, though. We've got to do better than this.

prairiegirl said...

So what's new besides the fact that I've fallen out of love with my latest ship, J2? LOL. Geez, they are no better than Jake/Austin. What a couple of big liars and Jared Padalecki is proving to be just as big of a HW tool as Jake.

I told someone today that Jared/Jensen are the LAST closeted couple I will follow. That's it. Somebody yank me off the stage with the cane if I so much as even mention another closeted couple. Dump a barrel of ice water on me. Do something. Because that is IT.

Ugh. I will still follow them as well, but my purpose in following them has changed, just like with Austin and Jake.It's one thing to lie about your sexuality in order to preserve your career. I get that. As long as you're not bearding in my face and doing all kinds of blatant OTT nonsense, I get it.

But when these guys go out of their way to lie about not being fathers, about acting as though they're having a major mental meltdown in order to hide what they're really doing BTS? I draw the line at that kind of fakery. And taking people's money at the same time that you're doing it? No. That's nauseating kind of stuff.

I'm not even sure who Jared is anymore or when he's telling the truth. He's getting just like Jake.

But I still love that these 2 pairs of guys are still together. How screwed up is that? lol.

I love that Jake and Austin are still together and raising their family.

And I love that Jared and Jensen are doing the same thing.

Two couples. Two OTP's. Both met at their auditions. Both raising families together and hiding it from the public. Both use their families to lie for them. Both couples have mearded, are mearding. Both couples together for 10 years or close to it.

I'm not for sure exactly when J2 hooked up for real, but I bet it didn't take them long.

prairiegirl said...

This is amusing.

The paid troll next door has a Toothy Tile twitter account. I don't see what he's doing over there because I've had to block his ass.

But I have found out some of the mischief he's been up to because how? Because he's interfered with at least 3 of @goosestile's followers, trying to badmouth me to them, telling them that I'm lying and all this kind of nonsense.

Well, guess what? It didn't work with any of those 3 followers. All 3 saw him for what he was and figured out that he was a PR tool. You know what clued two of them in?

The fact that he's pandering that Austin is straight and carrying on for real with ol' Chlo. That was a huge mistake on his part. Huge.

So he can just keep it up. Mgmnt is getting desperate, aren't they? They haven't shut me up, but they're going after my followers to try and influence them.

You know, M&M and I called that guy out for what he was how long ago? Couple of years ago, probably? Some people probably thought I was nuts when I was on here saying how he was a paid troll.

Well? lol. He's been a Mgmnt intern all this time, you guys. All this time.

Anyway, I had to share that. Unbelievable the desperation.

prairiegirl said...

Holy crap! How could we not mention this? Guess who were very publicly in San Diego over the weekend?

You'll never guess.

prairiegirl said...

And Austin? Well, while we have no absolute proof that Mr. Mom was at Comic Con, he tweeted it anyways, lol:

AUSTIN NICHOLS ‏@AustinNichols Jul 10

3:52 PM - 10 Jul 2015 · Details

SDCC is for San Diego Comic Con where everyone in Hollywood was this weekend.

prairiegirl said...

Okay well, we'll pick things back up again. Sorry it's only me on here. We'll get this thing opened back up again. We need to work on this clearly.

And I was a bit harsh up there at calling Jared a tool, lol. I'm in a very cranky mood about that whole situation though. Probably get over it, just not right now. It's just so disappointing. **sigh** I was going to take that comment down, but changed my mind. Let it stay up - it was real.

Everyone have a great evening and it's back to work tomorrow!!!! :-(

Methodical Muser said...

Awwww the lovebirds both in San Diego. Jake has been very coy lately of where he is going to be in advance. Guess he doesn't want any OMGers popping up in one of his audiences. #MrCloseted

Funny you should mention Austin at Comic Con. There was a bizarre tweet asking why Austin would be on the panel of Agents of Shield. LOL! That's because he wasn't. Then one photo finally emerged afterwards of him sitting on the edge of a group dinner photo, ready to leap back into his car to get back to his hubby and kids.

Destiny said...

Hey, late to the party as always!

So sorry PG to hear J2 are just as bad as Jake and Austin, and that you're getting tired of it. It's just terrible that people stay in the closet at the expense of their emotional and mental well-being.

Methodical Muser said...

I also wanted to bring up an interesting tie. I think Austin may have had too much apple juice from the sippy cup, and didn't realize what he was posting. But, it was a huuuge shout out to Jake. James Horner, the American composer, conductor and orchestrator of film scores such as Titanic and Avatar died in a plane crash on June 22. But, what does Austin tweet about? A pic from a much more esoteric film called Willow, which he states is "One of my all time favorite films."

Here's a Jake Gyllenhaal quote from an interview about Prince of Persia back in 2010:


"It's definitely a different type of movie than I've made before," says Gyllenhaal.
"In the past, I looked at acting and making movies maybe a bit too seriously, and took myself a little bit too seriously. And I thought it was time to make a movie that was like the ones I loved when I was a kid."

Those would be the Indiana Jones titles, he says, The Goonies and E.T.
"And Willow," he adds, making note of the 1988 Ron Howard/George Lucas collaboration, a Middle Earth-ian fantasy made more than a decade before Peter Jackson got his hands on The Lord of the Rings.

"When I think about being a kid, I think about the wonder of these movies. And I wanted to make a movie like that. And with Prince of Persia, I thought this is a little bit of all those things mixed into one."

(Footnote for Willow aficionados: Gyllenhaal says that that film's star, Val Kilmer, served as "my inspiration for the hair in this movie" - and more. "Val really is an inspiration for this character," he insists.)

Never mind that Horner also worked on the musical score for Southpaw. Coincidence? I think not. ;-)

Destiny said...

Interesting that the boys are both at Comic Con. I guess Austin could pretend he was tagging along with old Chloe. I am a bit surprised that Southpaw would be promoted there, not exactly a comic/fantasy, etc. kind of film.

And good catch M&M on Willow. It wouldn't have occurred to me, but the minute you brought it up I remembered Jake's discussion of that movie because it seemed like such an unusual thing to list as a favorite (although I confess I have never seen it).

prairiegirl said...

Jake was actually at a naval base in San Diego. They did a special screening of Southpaw at the base and he took a ton of pictures with fans and service people at the base. Not exactly Comic Con, Dest, but both guys clearly in San Diego, so that's the important thing.


Destiny said...

Ahhh, okay, thanks for clarifying that PG. Yes, what with their usual "allergy" to being seen in the same place, I agree.

Nothing changes :( said...

Article from 1995 about CAA, Leo Di Caprio and staying in the closet!!

Florida Tom said...

Same city. Coincidence? I think not. PG none of these closeted movie stars have the intention of coming out until their careers are over. It just is not gonna happen. Not one of them. I gave up on that a long time ago. Reeke did it for me. Along with Movie stars the same can be said for American pro athletes. Too much money to lose.

Florida Tom said...

I do wish it was not that way but it is. So many other positive things have happened I do not care what these people do anymore. They do not have the courage and they want money more than a pure honest soul.

Florida Tom said...

Staying that I am not able to say I would be willing to come out either if I had what they have to lose.

prairiegirl said...

So sorry PG to hear J2 are just as bad as Jake and Austin, and that you're getting tired of it.

PG none of these closeted movie stars have the intention of coming out until their careers are over. It just is not gonna happen.

**hangs head** I know. lol. WAAAAHHHHHH!!! Boo HOO!!!! **weeps**

This has been a public service bawling.

But I thought Jared & Jensen were better than this!!!!!!

Florida Tom said...

PG :(((((((((((( Guess that goes for boy bands too :)))))))

prairiegirl said...

I hate to tell all the guys who are slobbering after Rachel McAdams, who is with the Jakester at the ESPYS, uh....I'm afraid they're probably barking up the wrong tree with her.

lol. I mean sorry Jake, but what ol' Tay is for gay men? You have become for lesbian actresses. You have become a dead giveaway with your leading ladies. #JakeHasARequirement

prairiegirl said...

Hey thank you, nothing changes, for bringing that article on Leonardo DiCaprio. I think I have seen something about that quote somewhere. It does sound like Leo D was scared back into the closet.

And now look at him. What gets me about Leo is how he is able to get away with what he does. He gets big roles; he's never won an Oscar though. But he does pretty vanilla bearding - all models. AND he gets to have his boyfriend(s) with him on trips. I mean, what in the hell? Why doesn't Jake? What is different? I guess Leo is a movie opener? Is that it?

prairiegirl said...

I want this archived where Jake & Austin's kids can find it someday. Let them see what their dad did - acting like they didn't exist and talking about falling in love with another child instead of speaking about falling in love with his own children.

LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2015 (UPI) -- Jake Gyllenhaal wants to be a dad.

The Southpaw actor talked to Entertainment Tonight about his lead role in the upcoming boxing drama, where he plays a fighter hoping to make up for his past faults and win back esteem in the eyes of his daughter.

While discussing the film, and the relationship between his character and his daughter played by actress Oona Laurence, the 34-year-old star opened up about how desire to be a dad.

"I am not a father yet, but it is definitely a dream of mine, should I be lucky to have that to happen," Gyllenhall said.

"I have nieces who I love deeply and I have children in my life I love deeply, but when I meet Oona for the first time, I just fell for her," he continued. "Your heart opens up to her."


Pfft! And no, that lame, old reliable, "ambiguous" line of "and I have children in my life I love deeply"? What is that? lol. I think that's Jake's necklace of garlic or lucky rabbit's foot so that lightning doesn't come in the middle of the night and fry him like a Kingsford briquette for lying out of his ass.

Huh, I wonder what Buddha says about tempting fate like that? Does Jake not believe at all in kharma? In tempting bad luck/fate? Does he not believe in what goes around comes around?

Whew. Maybe he ought to go pick up a lottery ticket on the way home while he's at it. ;-)

the real m said...

I happened to see this blind on Enty lawyer's site this morning. "What closeted A-list athlete and closeted A/B-list actor who’s gunning for an Oscar nomination with his latest film were eye fucking each other the entire night? I don’t know if they hooked up after the show, but by the way they were looking at each other they probably did." Of course Jake is the main guess. I did not follow the ESPY awards so not sure what other possible actor gunning for an Oscar nom could have been there but it sure sounds like Jake.

prairiegirl said...

Oh, I'm sure it is, m.

Don't tell me Jake hasn't been hooking up, with all the time he's been away from Austin & the kids. All that time on Broadway, all the traveling he does. While Austin is minding the kids and the house, Jake's got way too much time on his hands. And once a cheater, always a cheater. Jake does not strike me at all as a faithful type. Ted didn't talk about confidentiality contracts for nothing.
Those poor Gyllynichols kids.

And he needs to get his stinkin' movie off of my Royals broadcasts. That is the last thing I want to see on my Royals' screen. Is it 2025 yet? lol - maybe by then Jake will have worked out his issues, ya think? I do not want to see his razered head during my games. Go hit up a telecast of Roller Derby or Jackass. grrrrr.

Royals doing well so far. Tom, how're the Phillies doing?

prairiegirl said...

Hey, let's try to guess who the athlete was that Jake was cheat-licking his chops over while his kids were at home.

I didn't watch the show so I'll have to Google and check. Must have been an athlete sitting near him. Didn't he present an award to a jock? Maybe it was that guy.

Florida Tom said...

PG OMG they have come from World Champs in 2008 to the worst team in baseball. Your Royals are definitely looking like they may be heading back to the World Series :-)

prairiegirl said...

We need some pitching help, Tom! But I don't want to give up any players to get a good starter, lol.

prairiegirl said...

So it sounds like Aaron Rogers was there. Alex Rodriguez. Russell Wilson.
Derek Jeter.

Alex is mighty fine looking.

Gotta be one of those guys - they're all A-List.

Florida Tom said...

Well Cole Hamels(2008 World Series MVP) is your man PG but we are not giving him away.

If Aaron Rodgers was at the ESPY's than that is your man. He even looks like Jake a little :-)

Methodical Muser said...

Hey, let's try to guess who the athlete was that Jake was cheat-licking his chops over while his kids were at home.

I'm going to guess Derek Jeter. He was at the Espys with his new beard, I mean girlfriend, Hannah Davis. A Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Now, that's a surprise, huh? Jake and Jeter probably were exchanging notes on ol’ Minka Kelly.

prairiegirl said...

Exchanging notes Among other things. LOL.

My money is on A-Rod. :-)

prairiegirl said...

Hey, this is kind of funny. I just found "Brokeback Mountain Theme - The Wings (Remix) as an aerobic workout edit on Itunes. LOLLLL. It's all jazzed up.
I don't know about that. ;-) I'm not sure if that is very cool.

Methodical Muser said...

My money is on A-Rod. :-)

Maybe there was a threesome! Or, a foursome if Austin joined them.

Methodical Muser said...

I just found "Brokeback Mountain Theme - The Wings (Remix) as an aerobic workout edit on Itunes.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo. That's blasphemy.

Babygate Update said...

I’m sure the OMG super sleuths have been laughing their heads off over the “breaking news” this week that Louis of 1D fame has got a girl “pregnant”. The Supernatural Boys are repeat offenders and certainly Jake and Austin are on the naughty list too when it comes to sex, lies, shady video tapes and substandard photoshopped evidence to promote their heterosexual image, but you have to admit, no one surpasses Modest, Simon Cowell and 1DHQ when it comes to closeting their captives. Sorry. I meant to write, clients.

The shocking story “broke” on Tuesday, but major components of the narrative have somehow changed at least twenty times since then. Worried that no one with a brain, or who can breathe on their own, is believing this farce, Dan Wooten of The Sun (and you know how reliable that “publication” is) posted an interview with Simon Cowell today. I mean who can make this stuff up? The Sun is 1DHQ’s authoritative source. This is what fan fic is made of everyone. Anyway, one of our more talented Larrie associates just put up this hilarious overview of the real inside deets, giving us a glimpse of what really happened under those bedsheets. The truth finally exposed for all to see. Enjoy! Happy Saturday.

The Real Scoop Behind Louis Tomlinson’s “Baby”

Tabloid press said...

That "Deluder" spoof on the 1D guys had been laughing throughout. The Louis as a hedgehog backstory is all kinds of perfect because he does look like a hedgehog in a comical kind of way. Guess that's all you can do when these goofy stories appear. Laugh. Now PR teams are breaking stories in People, but, everyone knows that mag is neck deep inside the butts of celebrity teams too. I even know there's no kid and I'm just a casual reader of One Direction stuff because of the Harry and Louis relationship. They are a good looking couple. If they come out that will be a huge story.

Been watching the promotional stuff for Southpaw. The slo-mo sweat, blood drenched punches, scream laden scenes. Frankly, it just looks like another run of the mill boxing movie that I'm not interested in seeing. But, there's always a built-in audience for this stuff so we'll just have to wait and see.

Florida Tom said...

Harry and Louis will not come out till they are old men. Way too much money involved.

Not sure if Jake is gonna get an Oscar nom for Southpaw but may get one for the film that is coming out later in the Fall. I am liking his chances of getting an Oscar nom this year as long as he doesn't get too cocky about missing out last year and so far I do not think he has.

prairiegirl said...

You mean Everest, Tom? I don't know if he's going to be in that one as much though. That cast list is huge.

Demolition got pushed back to coming out next April 2016.

Yeah I was thinking about Demolition PG.. I did not know that got pushed back. Well I think his Oscar chances just decreased quite a bit.

prairiegirl said...

Yeah, it was just announced this week. Let me see if I can find something real quick on it.

Demolition getting released in April 2016

Looks like April 8 at this point. Always subject to change, of course! lol.

You know how things with Jake are one minute to the next.

understandable doubt, but said...

Harry and Louis will not come out till they are old men.

I follow many closeted celebrity blogs like this one, including the 1D fandom, and I will have to respectfully disagree. There is something different about Harry and Louis. Mostly what makes them distinct is that they have fought the closet from the very beginning and until this day, even with all this pregnancy nonsense, continue to do so. Their contract ends probably in December/January. No one is suggesting that they will come out right away, but these young men are Millennials. Partly responsible for getting marriage equality passed in England and the USA. They want to live free lives. Raise a family in the open. Be role models for younger people.

Yes, there is a shit load of money on the table, but that doesn't stop Harry from wrapping himself in a Rainbow flag, or prominently displaying rainbow bear mascots at their concerts. How, when and where they will come out, I have no idea. But, I do believe that's the game plan.

Florida Tom said...

I hope you are right understandable. That would be awesome !!! The girls will still love them :-)

understandable doubt, but said...

Yes, they will still be loved and respected no matter what because they continue to fight the closet and represent the LBGTQ community whenever they can. Someone had a rainbow flag at one of their recent concerts that read, "Love Conquers All." Harry said, "Always."

Seaweed said...

Hi Gang,

Feeling out of the loop and have missed a number of things because life has gotten very hectic lately. Thanks to Tom, Destiny and others for the Canada Day wishes and I'm sorry for having missed my shout-out to most of your for the 4th of July, that happened right in the middle of a major local event.

Destiny, you said you felt late to the game but I'm quite a bit worse and sorry to have missed the chance to talk about the great news in the U.S. on equal marriage and drawing the connection to legacy of Brokeback Mountain. There is no doubt in my mind that this epic movie has had plenty to do with helping break down barriers. It's profound effect on so many people is slowly being either forgotten, or just confined to the occasional ramblings of those of us who felt it's full effect. In any case, mentions of the movie, old images, or talk of Brokeback add to the colour in my life in a very big way.

I'm hoping all my friends here are having a great summer and will look forward to our continued catching up with each other as time goes on. Hugs to all.

Florida Tom said...

I never thought I hear myself say this Seaweed but I cannot wait till summer is over.

The best thing about all that has happened since Brokeback Seaweed is that many many people have had the courage to stand up against the hatred of a group of individuals who are just human beings like everyone else. The same God created us all. My anger against organized religion and how they have used the Bible to make hate and even violence seem like the work of God has been such a struggle. Gos does not want us to hate those who hate us. I have found myself there. The real work comes in the form of self acceptance and not believing the lies that have been drilled into my head. We cannot change what people feel. We can only change what we think and how we behave. Time for me to change along with the times. No more need to be angry or resentful. God expects us all to do the best we can. He expects us to treat ourselves and each other with kindness and respect. Time for me to put the anger aside and enjoy the way times have changed :-)

Florida Tom said...

Thomas Roberts made history behind the desk over the weekend.

Roberts, an MSNBC host, became the first openly gay anchor on a network news broadcast when he hosted NBC Nightly News on Saturday,

Coooool :-)

Methodical Muser said...

That is cool, Tom! I watched Roberts on Sunday night and was surprised to see him anchoring. I had no idea about the historical moment. Thanks for sharing that milestone.

Regarding 1D, there is definitely a lot going on right now. Fans are joking that they need to get some sleep, others are stocking up on their wine supply, (LOL!) afraid to shut down their computers for one minute because of what they might miss. For months and months now, there have been warped speed changes and curious, sometimes conflicting narratives carefully being rolled out. I have a six month supply of popcorn, just in case the best case scenario happens this year.

Several possibilities are being speculated, the most prominent theory being that 1D's five-year contract is up soon and that a Louis and Harry coming out has been in the works for well over a year. The whole PEOPLE Babygate explosion that erupted out of nowhere from last week has curiously still not be confirmed by either a rep or Louis. Louis’s visibility among a non-fandom audience has certainly skyrocketed though. Simon Cowell has now suggested the group is going to take a hiatus after their next album (set to drop in the Fall), which supports the idea that the guys may be changing management teams. Without a doubt, the whole process is exciting and frustrating to watch. Sometimes three steps forward, two steps back. But, progress is happening every single day. I can feel the electrical charge of change in the air. Most importantly, Harry and Louis seem particularly happy these days, which is a great sign of positive developments on the horizon.

And, a very Happy Birthday to our illustrious leader, Ms. Special. Hope you have a wonderful day planned and that all your wishes come true ten times over. You deserve the very best.

Florida Tom said...

Happy Birthday Special. Enjoy your day !!!!

the real m said...

Whoa, what happened to the Southpaw reviews! All of a sudden the Rotten Tomato score dropped to 43%. I know studios surpress reviews, especially negative ones, until movie openings but thats quite a drop. Cliched and dull seem to be the key words. Jake's performance good to OK but so many little things can ruin a movie.

Happy Birthday Special. Thanks for all your terrific work and here's hoping you have a wonderful year.

Destiny said...

It would be so awesome if 1D changed management and Harry and Louis came out. Not sure how likely that is at this point--e..g., I wonder if there is something in the old contract that gives Simon an automatic right to renew.

Special K said...

Thanks everyone for the Birthday wishes! It is always special being remembered by the friends I've made at OMG.

Seaweed said...

Wishing you a Very Happy belated Birthday Special. Hoping the next year provides you with all the joy and good health you need and deserve. Thanks also for all you do for us as well!

Tom, I can understand your wish to fast forward the summer and clear the intense heat, and certainly understand your take on religious matters and tolerance in general. Hate can be a large burden even in small doses.

My comments have been getting eaten up!!! No, Special & I are not having a huge feud, lol. I tried to join in the well wishes fray, but my comments keep getting eaten up.

This has been a test.

Florida Tom said...

Speaking to BET recently, Gyllenhaal was asked if he thought the landscape has changed for actors playing gay since then:

“Oh definitely it’s changed. I think playing a role and living a life are two very different things. I think telling stories, and all different stories, is what makes acting so great. It’s why I was really proud of Brokeback Mountain and everything it had to say. And it was an interesting journey to go on to learn about that world.”

Yeah ok Jake !!!!

Florida Tom said...

Same interview:

And how does Jake feel about the recent national movement on marriage equality?

“When I heard about the news I thought, wow, how far we’ve come in a decade. And how far we have to go in so many things. But I think hopefully something like that in terms of—the resistance of society and seeing that it’s possible to change was such an amazing thing. I remember thinking, my mom sent me the decision.

“And how it was written, I thought it was so beautiful. And she said it’s all about love. My brother said to me a few weeks ago, all we leave behind is the wake of our live, that’s all we have. And to know that that wins out sometimes is an inspiration to me.”

Didn't know Jake had a brother ???

Lazy transcribing by high school interns. He says brother in law at the original source, the BET video.

Happy Belated Birthday Special!!

Destiny said...

HI Sass, so good to hear from you! I hope all is well with you.

Ditto for Clarity, good to know you're still around.

I hope that Frank Ocean's new record does well; I was just thinking the other day about how he hasn't been as successful as Sam Smith. I don't know if it is because the latter's music is poppier, or if it is racism, or some other thing/combination of things.

prairiegirl said...

Hi everyone,
That is not Sass, I'm afraid. If you click on the avatar, you get the message:

Profile Not Available

The Blogger Profile you requested cannot be displayed. Many Blogger users have not yet elected to publicly share their Profile.

Which tells us that it is someone hijacking and mimicking her blogger account. I wish it was sass.

prairiegirl said...

If you noticed, the troll chose sass's account, I think, because among others here, sass was an OMG participant who liked all of Jake's movies and attended them. So the troll knew that if he used her account, the comments about loving his movie(s) and stating he should have been nominated for an Oscar would be believed and no one would bat an eye.

But I clicked on the avatar out of curiosity and got the error message.

Now ask yourself, why does someone need to hijack another blogger account to post on OMG and repeat the whine about Jake should have been nominated for an Oscar?

Pretty sad.

prairiegirl said...

Bye bye, troll. Go back to that cesspool of a "blog" you call WFT2.

**This window is closed**

Interested said...

I'm getting the biggest kick out of this troll. That person must get paid overtime on Sundays. I saw Southpaw. Not a good film at all. Save you money. Jake's going to ruin his vocal chords with all that screaming he loves to do in his movies nowadays.

The whole One Direction Harry/Louis story is a fascinating one. Could someone give me an idea of the best tumblrs to follow? It would be so cool if they do come out.

Actually, Harry was wearing a garter around his thigh. Someone threw the lacy item up on stage and, of course, he had to try it on for size. LOL!

Garter Moment

sass said...

That was me guys...I lost my post...didn't know my avatar went missing either..been gone too long. South Paw well received in Harlem...claps and cheers and whistled. Audiences seem to rate this movie much higher than the critics...wzup with Jake getting no awards for all his fine work. My memory is awful but the movie in which Jake lost half his nothing...but I can't speak to so many things...I forgot Jake had FB and I liked it, but when :lol.
Love you guys.
Now I know why Austin is not on Ray Donovan since the first episodes. And he was so good...oh well.

"Now ask yourself, why does someone need to hijack another blogger account"

Yes, PG, it's pretty sad that it has all come down to that. That is why I do not use my Blogger account any longer. I figure you all know me and that's what counts.

Yes Destiny...I do check the blog when I can. Thanks for the review Interested..I hadn't heard a real persons review on the movie at all.

Welcome One Direction to Kansas City tonight!!! I would love to hear them perform "Where Do Broken Hearts Go?" and then get the heck out of Dodge because I could not handle all of that screaming, lol.

Good to see you, sass! Sorry for the mis-call on that not being you. And great to see Clarity!! Great to have some old-timers here.

sass said...

No worries, honestly I don't think about such things. Just glad to find your blog again and read Jake/Austin news.
About the 1 Direction baby, I'm sumprised.
Jake taking a bit of credit, as well he should...for humanizing gay men. I sat in many NY theaters, amongst sobbing women and a few men, myself included, broken hearted and bereft.
Frank was greeted with so much hatred--from my folks--no recognition @ BET awards for one thing but Chris Brown recently released from parole practically headlining the show.
Of course I hope he's still in love with could he not be, Willy loves him so much...and Frank does not want to make, is not going to make a lot of romantic boy/girl music. His road is rough...
love to ya,

Jake’s Never-ending Pursuit of An Oscar

Let’s see, Jake has emaciated himself. Gained, according to some articles, anywhere between 10-50 lbs of muscle (Yeah, right), donned a helmet head hairstyle, along with facial tics, and tattoos, and now he’s ready to lose a few limbs, just to make sure those persnickety Oscar voters notice him. Maybe in his next movie he’ll do a sequel about Helen Keller? He can play deaf, blind, mute, and a woman. Surely, the Academy will have to acknowledge such versatility. Right, Jake?

prairiegirl said...

M & M, you forgot about the permanent freezer burn role and becoming part of the mountain landscape.

Methodical Muser said...

Oh, that's right. *slaps forehead* Permafrost Man! How could I forget?

prairiegirl said...

How about Frosty "South" Paws?


Oh I killed myself on that one.

Methodical Muser said...

You mean, "Frosty South Paws: The Movie"


prairiegirl said...

I think Jake needs to buy Atticus some Frosty South Paws.


Destiny said...

Yeah, I don't get why Chris Brown gets all the attention he does, it's just not right given all the things he has done.

Based on the reviews, I really doubt South Paw will get any Oscar nods. I won't be spending the money to see it in a theater as the reviews were mixed and said it was a typical boxing movie, and I am not a fan of that genre.

Florida Tom said...

To me moving Everest to the Fall seems like it might be the movie getting some Oscar noms for this year. Maybe some cinematography noms or something. The new release date for Demolition tells me also that things aren't looking too good. We will see what happens in Toronto. I believe it is opening up the movie fest there.

london tb said...

Destiny, the reviews put me off Southpaw too.

Florida Tom said...

Jake is actually getting some pretty good reviews for Southpaw and the lead actor field is said to be on the weak side. Leo, Eddy Redmayne and Michael Fassbender seem to be shoo ins for Oscar noms so that leaves two slots. I keep reading that Harvey Weinstein is pushing big time for Jake. We will see what happens.

prairiegirl said...

He's getting a mix of reviews, but yeah, many are good. But in the same article or tweet, you'll also get that the movie itself is too cliche filled.

I can't even stand to look at the pictures from SP, they're gratuitously bloody and nothing I want to see.

I'm going to try again with a link to a superlative story that I am sure many will definitely enjoy if you haven't seen it already. I tried to post it the other night but my comment got eaten up again and so I didn't try to repost it. Blogger has been teeing me off lately.

prairiegirl said...

This article/interview was just wonderful. I really came away from it thinking again what a genius and fascinating sounding man Ang Lee must be. He is someone who sounds like you could learn so much from and be impacted by. And his quote about the movie Brokeback just struck out at me like a piece of poetry:

Lee: After The Hulk I thought about retirement. I thought I’d had enough. My father had just passed away, and I was exhausted. Brokeback Mountain nurtured me back to filmmaking and as a person. I’m not the creator of that movie—I’m just a participant. It was meant to come out, to see the world, to affect people. I think everybody involved felt that way, like we were blessed. I don’t have another movie I feel that way about.

"It was meant to come out, to see the world, to affect people."

Such a beautiful statement.

Anyway, here's the article:

Ten years later

prairiegirl said...

I forgot to elaborate on what the article is about. It's about a look back at the movie Brokeback Mountain ten years later and they interviewed Jake, Ang Lee, Anne Hathaway, Diana Ossana and Larry McCurty, the screenwriters.

They tell some BTS stories that I hadn't heard or read and it's just a lovely look back at a movie classic.

You know, I look at that movie and it didn't have gratuitous sex or excessive blood. It didn't have gratuitous, OTT profanity. It was a story about people and a relationship and Jake didn't have to lose weight or chrome up his teeth or have a tic or style his hair a certain way.

And that was the movie where he received his first Oscar nomination. And he is just knocking himself out to get that again by adding all of these gimmicks to his roles.

There will be no rest in the Gyllynichols household until that trophy is up on the mantle. Austin will continue to have to pick up that bearding wheelbarrow and haul his pride around until it happens.

Obstinate Jake said...

That's a touching retrospective about Brokeback Mountain. I admire Ang Lee tremendously. A definite artist in every sense of that word.

I snorted some soda through my nose when I read that comment about Jake willing to lose more and more body parts to get that damn Oscar. Who knows. Maybe he'll have a chance to do Johnny Got His Gun: The Sequel before the decade ends. That way he can play the anti-hero and be dismembered. ***wink***

Johnny Got His Gun

Destiny said...

Thanks for posting that article PG. And I agree, that is a beautiful quote from Ang Lee.

Speaking of articles, I was reading the latest issue of Saveur, a food magazine I love because they have some articles that are more like travel articles that feature local foods, etc. Well what should I come across but one on Chris Fischer and Martha's Vineyard. Haven't heard that name in a long time.

Florida Tom said...

From Queerty

For as long as gay men have been making names for themselves in showbiz, there have been fiercely famous beards by their side. A perfect accessory for any self-loathing gay celebrity, the “beard” by definition is “any opposite sex escort taken to an event in an effort to give a homosexual person the appearance of being out on a date with a person of the opposite sex.”

Rock Hudson had one, Liberace had two, and there’s no doubt closeted gay Hollywood is chock-full of them cough today. Perhaps the most famous (and certainly the most obvious) modern gay beard is country star Taylor Swift, a beard so highly revered and profitable she’s been considered by some to be Hollywood’s first Power Beard.

But even though she’s dated nearly every male celebrity with a face, not one of Swift’s previous boyfriends has ever come out of the closet. She’s had so many relationships, it’s plausible to believe at least one of them was purely for show, right? So which one is it?

Yes Jake was on the list :-)

Florida Tom said...

From Queerty

Jake Gyllenhaal allegedly prefers “tits and ass,” but we’re still secretly hoping his brief 2010 relationship with Swift was a sham. She may not want him anymore, but we certainly do!

The article on Swift makes remarks on each guy Swift has allegedly dated or been photographed with. Above is what it said about Jake. For me the bearding has made me not 100 % sure that Jake is Gay but 200 % sure that Jake is Gay. This goes the same for Austin. Real couples just do not take the photo ops fake couples do and then post them on line. With Austin who is not as famous as Jake a lot of the photos have been taken by him or his fake girlfriends.

And the way the two guys coordinate their separation, making sure to be publicly apart on holidays and important family dates, ie anniversaries and birthdays.

Got a big one this month, as a matter of fact.

Jake Gyllenhaal Inks First-Look Deal With ‘Nightcrawler’ Producer Bold Films

August 6, 2015 | 12:08PM PT
Justin Kroll
Film Reporter @krolljvar

Following last year’s sleeper hit “Nightcrawler,” Jake Gyllenhaal has signed a first-look deal with Bold Films.

The partnership affords Gyllenhaal the opportunity to acquire and develop new material. Riva Marker is set as the production executive for Gyllenhaal’s new company.

“Bold Films chooses to tell stories that I love — unflinching yet entertaining,” Gyllenhaal said in a statement. “I look forward to making movies that are successful both artistically and financially. That’s what Gary (Michael Waters, Bold CEO) and Michel (Litvak) do. They are nonconformists who have already proven to be terrific partners on ‘Nightcrawler’ — protecting stories and the artists who tell them.”

“Nightcrawler” received an Oscar nomination for original screenplay, and Gyllenhaal nabbed a SAG nom for lead actor. The film went on to gross $38.7 million worldwide on an $8.5 million budget.

“[Jake’s] impeccable taste in projects and deep knowledge of how to make high quality films make him a formidable producer,” said Bold Films chairman Litvak.

Gyllenhaal has already had a busy year, with “Southpaw” recently overperforming at the box office; “Everest” is set to make an awards push later on this year. He is about to start production on Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals” and is in negotiations to star in Lionsgate’s Boston Marathon bombing drama “Stronger.”

The actor is repped by WME.

To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before

Reaction to article said...

"protecting stories and the artists who tell them"

What does that mean? If Nightcrawler is an example of an artistic film then I'm probably not going to be interested in the films Jake continues to make. I'm all for nonconformity, except when it comes off as intentional. Jake seems to also think good stories have something to do with violence of some kind. His so-called "taste" in storytelling is borders are overcoming odds, but with a seedy, "I don't have to follow the rules or norms of society" slant. I saw NC and SP. But I don't think I'll be putting any more money down for Jake's indulgences. I feel like I'm being manipulated emotionally. Maybe being punished somehow. Like I'm to blame for his anger. Seeing his films these days is less of an experience. More of a chore.

Jake's already wrapped in a huge fluffy blanket of protection. In fact, he almost seems like he is fixated on acquiring or keep his protection. Protection from what and who is the question. Classic sympton of living your life in the closet.

prairiegirl said...

Fascinating comment, Reaction, because if you read some of Jake's interviews for the Southpaw press, he was alllllll about the anger. He's obsessed with anger, actually. And it's like you said, it's like he's lashing out. The guy seems to have a lot of pent up anger inside of him, which isn't healthy. He's creating some really physically ugly characters.

Anyone who has seen the pictures of "Billy Hope" with his mouth gaping open like Jaws and the tattoo'd teeth and blood and all of that nonsense, it's like that anger in him is coming out in physical form. That's why it's not very appealing.

For his part, Gyllenhaal felt the physical preparation would help present the outward manifestation of his character’s inner ordeal. “I made Southpaw because it was about the idea of anger,” he tells EW. “A man dealing with anger and how it affects your life. And how you overcome anger. How it can be helpful without the hatred in it.”

But Gyllenhaal says he thinks Billy might be just as dark as Lou, chewed up by rage. “That was a big reason for me to do this movie – I’m fascinated by my own anger, too.”
How much anger does one normally like to seek out in life?

I mean, what in the hell? Anger, anger, anger. WoW. This kind of obsession is a therapist's ticket to retirement, that's what that is, LOL!
Jake could probably make someone a very rich therapist at this point. Both him AND Austin.

Congratulations to Wentworth Miller. Fox is bringing back Prison Break, did you guys know that? Wentworth Miller has a prime time TV leading role gig and he is now out.

Who knew Crayola Crayons could provide someone so much self-entertainment?

I look at the troll's bs nonsense as that kind of Spam that Firefox aims at and blows up like one of Homer Hickham's bottle rockets. KaBoom!! LOL!!

He's never very far away, is he? That's because he is being PAID to keep watch. Too bad we're not looking at nor buying any of his grafitti. LOLLLLL!!!

Keep wasting your bad fanfic keystrokes, buddy.

Hey, now if you have any links to Hugo's birthday party from yesterday, now THAT we'd all love to see.

Florida Tom said...

Great news for Wentworth Miller. Prison Break was a really popular show for a while. Interesting it is coming back now after the recent prison break that got such big headlines. TV and Broadway is so open to Gay men in leading roles. When will HW ever catch up.

Ian McClellan is getting such great reviews for Holmes but I am not picking up any Oscar buzz. There was earlier in the year but the July release date was a killer. I want so badly for a openly Gay actor to win an Oscar. Of course we know a closeted Gay actor has won two. Kevin Spacey...

Austin's Hot Hubby during their Leadville Lovin Vacay

Remember that??? Leadville in late August? Look at Jake in that pic and it'll take you back. Check him out in that racy black tank. Him and Austin were having some "them" time after the birth of one of their kids.

That's why this month is special for them. That's why all of the sightings and OTT bearding this past week.

Awwwww, remember Jake was caught at that cabin looking all worn out and tired? That was after the birth of the baby.

And Austin was the one working. He was working on OTH, but he was on leave for that Leadville Love-In.

What prison break was that, Tom?

I loved Prison Break!!!!! Wentworth was so hot and that show had some great characters. I couldn't watch the last episode though because I just knew they were going to kill off Michael. I read where they're going to act like Michael Scofield was never killed. Not sure how they'll do it, should be interesting.

the troll is having a heart attack said...

Lovely to see nasty bitch PG/MM/... so upset about Jake's successful career :)))

I don't know why you put up with this fool? He or she or it, really has a problem with Jake and Austin being gay. Or, is he one of those pd trolls who swoops in whenever you talk about the prissy highness that is Jake Gyllenhaal?

I would very much agree with your thinking.

He's a paid troll.

Thought so.

prairiegirl said...

If anybody wants to take a trip back through time, here's a link to Oct 2010 to the day Special put up the Leadville post. It's very interesting to go way back on OMG and see how comment threads went, what people were saying at the time. I have absolutely no doubt that the month of August was special for Jake & Austin if you go back and look at some of the events that occurred and how they fell in to place.

Fun times

And now you can look back at this past week and the way Jake & Austin suddenly upped their profile to the public and they gave themselves away over how this past week was a birthday week for one of their kids - Leadville BT.

prairiegirl said...

August 2010 was when Austin was working on OTH and Jake was wandering around because it was summer, of course and it was just prior to Aug on July 23 (thanks to M & M who documented this stuff on her BT Word Document) when Jake was seen railing out of that store, remember that? Remember those pictures?

Jake railing out of that store with the bag in his hand and he couldn't have cut the corner out of the door any close unless he Spiderman'd the wall. LOL!! And no one could figure out what he was doing back in LA.

Look at Jake - watch out for those shopping baskets, Jake, you're about to land in them.

Mark says on 9/Aug/10 (In Los Angeles)
On Sunday (8/8/10), I saw Jake Gyllenhaal at the Hollywood Farmer's Market on Ivar. I'm a legit 6'3. For Jake, 6'0 is a bit of a stretch, but I'll give it to him.

Note: The Bris of a healthy baby is done on the eighth day of life (counting the day of birth). This is so even if the eighth day falls on Shabbos. Yom Kippur or any other Jewish festival. However, in the case of a baby born by Caesarean section, the Bris is not performed on Shabbos or on a festival, but on the day following. Bris Milah – Covenant of Circumcision –Bris (Baby possibly born on August 7th, which would have been a Saturday and then the Bris could have been on August 14th (the 8th day of life) because of Maggie, Ramona and then Stephen Gyllenhaal pic of Jake having lunch with him on Monday (August 16th).

August 12, 2010 Austin tweets a pic of his mom surfing. His parents are visiting him in NC. The only time they do so the entire time he is filming OTH: 2008-2011.
“My mom surfing huge north carolina waves”

August 15, 2010 (Sunday) Breakthrough Awards Takes Place (Austin was announced to be there with Sophia Bush, but doesn’t show up. No one knows where he is.)

August 15, 2010 (Sunday) – Jake takes Ramona to a “Birthday Party” in LA allegedly for Birdie Phillips party (Maggie is mysteriously in attendance with Ramona)--- Birdie, however, is actually born on August 13th (Friday). Busy tweets that the Birthday celebration was on Friday/Saturday (August 13/14th)

A little over a year later, Busy posts a picture of a cake that she had made for a “friend’s kid’s 1st birthday” with the theme of a monkey. It is believed that BT4 is Austin’s boy and that a monkey is something especially associated with this baby. The name on the cake is Hugo]. Jake has been photographed with a monkey before and Austin is known for his monkey ears. During the last season of OTH, the babies’ nursery is loaded with monkey toys.

This timeline was brought to you courtesy of M & M.

prairiegirl said...

During the last season of OTH, the babies’ nursery is loaded with monkey toys.

I never knew that. Of course, I didn't watch the last season of OTH because of the Julian/Brook storyline. But that is fascinating. And there are indeed pictures of the nursery and there are monkeys everywhere.

Here was Busy's tweet which has since been deleted:

Busyphilipps25 Busy Philipps
Wanna see the Monkey cake I made for my friend's kid's 1st birthday??
25 Sep

Lucky for us we saved the picture of the cake. LOL!

From the timeline, it is interesting to note that the Ghaal family was gathering in LA:

August 15, 2010 could have been the day of BT4 Bris because the baby was born Caesarean so the Bris would have occurred on the 9th day of life, if the baby was born on August 7th.
August 16, 2010 – Lunch At Cafe Midi In Los Angeles Jake with Stephen Gyllenhaal (father)

And true to form, Austin does a lot of noisy tweeting telling everyone he's going to Detroit to do his filming and what happened the weekend of the 20th?

Remember these tweets?

August 16, 2010 - Austin makes a point of tweeting that he is just leaving from North Carolina. This is a deception he often uses to place himself somewhere that he isn’t. He more than likely is leaving CA where he was supposed to be when the Breakthrough Awards was announced. If this is the case, then he was in LA when the Busy “party” took place.

August 19, 2010 Austin leaves Detroit and tells everyone he’s headed back to OTH (aka North Carolina), but he flies to Leadville, CO to be with Jake.

Remember that tweet because Austin used the words "OMG" in his tweet. *wink*

And that weekend was the weekend of Leadville, the famous Leadville race where Austin got pictured with Jake by Brandon Fuller.

Thanks again to M&M's work on her BT Word Document for all of these recordings.

prairiegirl said...

So this past week was a bombardment of heavy, obnoxious bearding by Austin and whats-her-name leading up to Friday the 7th. Jake was noisily placed in NYC, also by his new business partner, Gary Michael Walters who posted a tweet about office space shopping on the 7th. Nothing in the picture proved it was taken on the 7th, but that was what Gary Michael Walters was trying to insinuate.

Good luck with that, GMW. We're not an easy sell here on OMG and you've already proven yourself to be an enabler when it comes to Jake.

Methodical Muser said...

Oh, gosh, I remember that research. Even more powerful five years later. The patterns stick out and so do the machinations. Another telling point is that one year later, more smoke and mirrors appeared at the same time in August, reinforcing the idea that the stork dropped another bundle on the GyllenNichols clan.

One Year Later, 2011:

July 29, 2011 – Austin Nichols Filming a scene for One Tree Hill; Wilmington NC

August 1, 2 & 3 2011- On set of EoW

August 5, 2011 – Jake in LA @ Medical Building & Austin pic from Wilmy “pap” -Mike Polk|MikeBlankets Sneaky papparazzi shoot of Austin Nichols from OTH. New profession. (Doesn’t necessarily have to be Austin, could be set up pic so Austin could return to LA undetected.)

August 6, 2011 (Friday)– Jake suddenly seen in LA Tweets & Facebook everywhere

August 7-8, 2011 – No tweets from Austin

A coordinated twitter campaign begins to place Austin in NY. Matthew Katz-Frost (Jake and Austin’s mutual good friend) uses twitter to place Austin there.

Tweets suddenly appear stating that Austin is with Sophia shopping and just hanging out, but no pics are posted. At no other time, before or since, have tweets appeared of Austin just hanging around NY with Sophia, except for the first month they rolled out their fauxmance in August, 2009.

Apparently Austin has 'wrecked his back' he told someone today, hope Sophia is making him feel better now she's back in NC! Guessing he wasn't with her at the Do Something awards in LA last night. Poor Austin, wonder what happened. Smilallison Allison Lombardi
@Aus10Nichols Hopefully your back will feel better soon...Back pain is the most awful! :)

I am getting off of oil. Here's my very first electric car. #nissanleaf 15 Aug

(License Plate indicates that the car was bought in Universal City, CA. (So both Austin and Jake are in LA one year after BT4 may have been born)

August 5, 2011 – Jake in LA @ Medical Building

August 12, 2011 - (Los Angeles) Jake at Medical Bldg.

One year check up.

And Jake has gone back to LA enough and yet no more pictures from that medical building. And you could say that Jake is going to a medical building in NYC for whatever ailment this was that caused him to go repeatedly to the medical building for several years straight.

And of course, the troll is going to say that there are "no paps in NY" and that's why we don't see Jake coming out of NYC. Well, that doesn't wash either because then I would have to ask why do we see him constantly crossing streets? No, that doesn't wash either. Selective paparazzi'ing? smh.

All those repetitive trips to the L.A. medical building. No more.

Can't resist this little laser point. I was just glancing at Jake's twitter search and I think they're still trying to place Jake in NYC for late last week. Here's a tweet that just showed up a couple of hours ago. This tweeter is reminiscing.

Same shirt?

This feels like old school, but unless my eyes are deceiving me, I do believe that in the picture with the Aladdin genie, her blouse lapel crosses left over right. In the picture with Jake, which I can only assume is supposed to be taken the same night, the lapel seems to be crossing over right over left.

Is Jake using some of Jensen and Jared's paid twitter accounts? I wonder. J/K

Look at Jake - watch out for those shopping baskets, Jake, you're about to land in them.

Hey, PG. That link doesn't work. Here we go:

Not only that, but she looks older in the picture with Jake than the one with the Aladdin genie. And is that a real pic with Jake? It's taken at night so it would be easy to slide her picture in next to him.

I'm just sayin.

lol. Oops!!! I can't believe I messed that up! I've gone back to my Fisher Price ways!!! ;D

Thanks, M&M. Sorry, folks! *turns red*

And, then one has to ask why "plant" a photo that is obviously from two separate times, but try to portray the posts as real time. You know why.

Destiny said...

That's real interesting about the Hugo birthday cake picture and the deletion. Why in the world would you delete something like that?

I agree about old Chloe, she really pings to me.

I really liked NC, and I thought Jake was amazing in it. I wouldn't want to see him in angry roles all the time, however. I also suspect doing these kinds of movies and his re-branding is an attempt to bring in a male audience. I think one of the reasons Jake wasn't able to carry some of those big budget films is that men don't seem to want to see him in movies.
