The Pick-Me-Up Artist

And sometimes, right in the middle of the day, you see something that makes you stop what you're doing and say, "I have to post that!"






Looks like Jake is racking up some important end-of-the-year honors. Sure, Oscars and Golden Globes are nice. But can they compare to being named The Bachelor You Most Want To Kiss? And lucky Reese. The privilege of kissing Jake has made her part of People's Most Intriguing Hook Up of 2007.

*GASP*

I need a moment to catch my breath.


Man, there is nothing more beautiful than Jake in a white tee, jeans and photographed in black and white.

Yes, I think I'll stop what I was doing and gaze longingly at the pretty.

I'll second that *GASP*!

I love B & W photos and Jake looks amazing.

OT: Jake and Reese won the most intriging couple of the year!

I think we might have knocked everyone out for the afternoon with the Jake pics, felicia!

Luckily, Sheba is still standing! Thanks for the People link. I just added it to the post, along with another high honor for Jake - Bachelor You Most Want To Kiss!

And I agree, B&W jake is beautiful.

OMG Sarah, How about that contest win:) I do love it when Jake wins, and the kiss win falling in my mailbox earlier this morning, has had me smiling all day long.
But let me get back to those gorgeous pics of Jake in his white t-shirt *thud* x 3975097593 times;) I didn't know they had won most intriguing hookup...though I did vote. TY:)
Reese and Jake are winning everything this year...and Jake alone is so gorgeous...I'd vote for him just for because.
It's really good to know all the ill feelings about those two didn't extend to the public at large. Most people get it right when it comes to goodness, truth and beauty.
I need to lie down and recuperate; the beauty posted here at GyllenBabble has given me the vapors;)
back soon,
sass

THUD, those are STUNNING pics!! I loved the one pic from this set that had been used in magazines, etc. But to see there are more...wow. The man is just beautiful!

Also, have to say how much I loved the last post! Jake one on one's=HOT. The pics with Jake and the little boy are just adorable and get me all swoony when I see them. :D Those people in NM are damn lucky to have a pick up game with Jake, Tobey et al. I wouldn't wash Jake off me either. ;p

UltraViolet said...

Hey Sass - hope you've recovered from the vapors! ::Fans Sass::

and yes, it's so nice when people can see Jake and Reese apart from all the nonsense and BS.

And get real - every time I look at the page, I re-thud! I can't decide which one is my favorite, but I think it's the second one posted. Until the next time I look...

I'm off to the train in a bit, a little flushed still from the champagne we had earlier at an office party. And armed with another bottle of champagne (holiday gift from the boss). In case I fall asleep on the train and ride the subway all night, I wanted to post this tidbit from imdb, about the relationship between Tobey and Jake:

they're playing brothers in the film brothers, and there is no infighting between them despite published reports. They were joking around set the other day. production is going smoothly with a few hard shots taking longer than usual, this is going to be jim sheridans coming out party.

The same person also posted this commentary:

they've been filming for weeks now at CSF in santa fe. They've shot with all three principal actors, and have routinely had dozens of marine extras in full camo around the lot. Shoots have been going on all day for weeks and weeks, the production will last until the end of january. A bar next to the college, "The Green Onion" was set up as a military bar. I've personally been on set, and can safely say that what I saw is some of the most ambitious stuff to come to New Mexico maybe ever. It's going to be a very good war/drama

Wow what beautiful pictures I think the first one is my favorite I just love to see Jake laugh.

Here is a sighting from Jake & Reese first trip to San Francisco on their return home.

"I ACTUALLY AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE THAT ON MY WAY HOME MONDAY AT THE SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT I SAW REESE AND JAKE TOGETHER IN THE SECURITY CHECK BEHIND ME IN LINE. I WAS WAITING FOR MY BOYFRIEND AT THE END OF THE BELT AND COULD HARDLY CONTAIN MYSELF AND A THOUSAND THOUGHTS WERE GOING THROUGH MY MIND....WHERE'S MY CAMERA? WHAT DO I SAY? OH MY GOD!!! I WAS SO EXCITED, BUT INSTEAD I REALLY WANTED TO RESPECT THEIR PRIVACY SO I PUT THE CAMERA AWAY (WHICH BY THE WAY WAS SUPER HARD FOR ME TODO) AND WHEN SHE CAME UP SHE GAVE THE BIGGEST SMILE EVER (SHE IS AS PRETTY IN PERSON AS SHE IS ON TV AND THE PAPERS AND SHE HAD NO MAKE UP UP EITHER) AND I JUST TOLD HER THAT HER AND JAKE ARE GREAT ACTORS AND I JUST LOVE THEM. I DID GET A THANK YOU BUT BEFORE YOU KNEW IT THEY WERE GONE. VERY VERY CUTE COUPLE. AND JAKE IS JUST AS GOOD LOOKING, MAYBE BETTER IN PERSON TOO!! I DO WISH I GOT THAT PICTURE THOUGH!report abuseposted November 16, 2007, 8:35 pm PST"

Kudos to the blogger above for allowing them to have private moment. It's hard enough to deal with the paps, imagine if you fellow traveler was snapping photos as well (which we all know has happened).

Of course those are rumors about Jake & Tobey not getting along, as they are rumors about Reese & Vince getting along. Good stories just don't sell. There are so many bloggers who were in San Francisco who said there was no friction, as there are now bloggers saying Jake & Tobey get along.

Don't count on any tabloid to print that, good news doesn't sell, or at least that is what they believe.

Some Brother's set photos (not Jake)

suvee said...

Oh, what a treat.... especially given the painful absence of recent pics! Hard to pick a fav, but I think for me, it's the 2nd pic. Love that warm, contagious grin on his face in that photo.

There's bound to be some kind of party for him tomorrow (night) at some local restaurant or bar, don't you think? Hopefully, some citizen will do their civic duty and provide us with an eyewitness account of the festivities. I've given up on Flynet. :(

FluorescentLamp said...

Oh I'll keep my fingers crossed that one of the fine citizens of Los Alamos or Santa Fe will do just that! And fuzzy cellphone pics wouldn't hurt either!

suvee said...

"And fuzzy cellphone pics wouldn't hurt either!"

FL, I agree. : )
At this point, I am SO not picky..... any kind of pic will do!

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, narcissa, for the Heath and Maggie links. I think I'm the only person on earth who isn't blown away by all the Batman hype. But it does look like Heath will silence all the detractors. And I think most people are very happy Maggie has replaced Mrs. Crazy.

And she does look pretty!

And thanks to anonymous for the Brothers set pictures. Gives me hope that there will be other folks who see some Jake action and report on it.

And LawGoddess, I knew you'd like these pics. They were a real treat.

UltraViolet said...

Anon, thanks for the Jake/Reese sighting. WOW! (I figured I'd express the same enthusiasm as the original poster ;)

What a nice encounter. And yet another person to comment no how pretty Reese is, and how Jake looks even better in person. I'm happy she gave them their privacy, but surprised that not a single person on that sight asked any questions about it. Silly people.

Thanks again, though - a great find!

Crossing my fingers with suvee and felicia for some birthday photos...

get real said...

I can't chose one photo over the others. They are all just..gah...HOT, lol! ;p

Glad Jake and Reese won the People poll and that Jake is of course the guy you'd want to kiss!

Thanks for the great Jake/Reese sighting, Anon 6:00. Glad to see some Gyllenspoon love out there. Where is that sighting from, btw? And thanks for the Brothers/Tobey pics, Anon 6:19. Great to see snippits (sp?) from the movie.

Almost Jake's b-day...woohoo!! :D

sass said...

Hi once more before Jake's birthday! I've recovered from the vapors and am ready for more Jaking:)
I still can't see Heath's pics...Help! see below... I linked it to check and that is what I see...*sob sob*

Heath pics

I Like the idea of Jake and Reese having private couple time. I am not sure I'd have a coherent thought much less the ability to say hi to them and tell them how much I like/love them as a a couple I I did run into them in an airport:)

OK, one more look at B&W Jake, will help me sleep like a baby:)

Maybe we'll catch a glimpse of the birthday boy tomorrow.
fingers xxxed:)

UltraViolet said...

New birthday post up, FYI!

Suvee, the sighting is from the November trip to Napa/San Francisco that Reese and Jake took. You can read the comment and others here. I only read one page, and there asn't a lot of the usual nastiness!

And yes, choosing a favorite among those photos is too hard. But I'll persevere and continue to stare...

Sass - not sure what's going on with your pics. Looks like you're linking to the whle album - the URL doesn't have an image ending (jpg, e.g.).

Hope you'll all join us today/tomorrow as we celebrate Jake's birthday!
