Keeping up to date with Jake Gyllenhaal and a WDW Peaceful Interlude

All is quiet on the Jake Gyllenhaal front, with filming on An Enemy in Toronto steaming ahead. This week, it's tweeted that the filming has moved to a local school for a few days. Although, Jake's largely managed to avoid being photographed by anything other than the film camera, a shot did emerge of Jake working out, possibly not the best of places for sneaking a pic. Jake is certainly keeping the local media busy with the sightings.

Early last year, Jake hitched a ride on the Mumford and Sons Railroad Revival Tour. We've mentioned the documentary about the tour before - Big Easy Express - but now we have some dates. You'll be able to JakeSpot on iTunes on 26 June. It will be released on blu ray and DVD on 24 July. Thanks to BBMISwear for the dates!

Several of Jake's films have the most amazing and memorable soundtracks - Brokeback Mountain, Zodiac, Moonlight Mile and Donnie Darko to name but four and in no particular order. On 1 August a special re-mastered blue vinyl edition of those most incredible Donnie Darko sounds is to be issued.

WDW Peaceful Interlude

This weekend, we grabbed a gap in the rainy clouds to venture out to Peace in the Park, an open day at the Global Retreat Centre a few miles south of Oxford. They have the most beautiful gardens and as well as enjoying those we were able to listen to music, eat cake and drink tea, with the most marvellous views over the countryside. Lots of red kites about too. We had lunch in a pub with a red kite nest in the tree above us, visited constantly by the calling parent birds. Lunchtime entertainment.

Have a good weekend everyone! If anyone sees the sun, can you send it along please? Thank you :)

Just wanted to comment that you have one classy site where Jake is viewed as an human being who acts and not a possession. This is truly a fansite blog.

Thanks for the heads-up on the special vinyl Donnie D soundtrack. I seem to have accidentally pre-ordered it. Oops. :D

Lovely pictures on the last couple of posts (yours and Esquire's).

Thank you so much, WDW Fan, you have really made my day with that very kind comment! I am so grateful! I do try so hard to be respectful to Jake. I'm glad it shows. Thank you!

Rubes, thank you! Glad you liked the pictures. The gardens are beautiful and they're open tomorrow (by Nuneham Courtnay). That's great about the LP! I no longer have a record player *sobs*. Be so lovely to listen to this one on vinyl. I hope you enjoy it :)

That school Jake is filming at today is UTSC-University of Toronto Scarborough. Many twitters report from movie set. Students got great opportunity to be in that film.
I like the sound of vinyl discs. It's very special. But I don't own a record player either,anymore.
I love all the old/new Jake's pics. It was such a good photo-session.
Your interlude pictures from Botanic garden are beautiful, Kate!

Hi Mermon - I saw the tweets - what a distraction from studies :) Thanks!

I hope you all had a good weekend!
