jake on snl! in drag! singing!

And that was just the monologue.  Jake put on a wig, stripped off his suit to reveal a sparkly, floor-length gown and sang And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going.   He's a pretty good singer!! And those arms of his!!  YUM.   Even if the rest of the show sucks, that was all worth it, right there.

OK, back to watching the show.  Just had to get that squee out  =)

A Long Way Down, Nick Hornby     2/15, 830/15,000

A story about 4 very different people with 4 very different reasons for making their way to the local suicide jump on New Year's Eve and what happens when they don't jump and decide to take "the long way down".  I found it to be a very quick and easy read.  I also caught myself smiling which was unexpected considering the subject matter.  Hornby also wrote About A Boy which I enjoyed as well.

I knew you'd be posting about Jake's monologue asap! haha All I kept thinking was OMG, Amy must by dying right now LOL! I actually preferred his version better than Jennifer's! Oh yeah, really nice arms and back too!

You know me too well =) I was wondering why he was wearing such an ill-fitting suit, too. Jake needs to sing more. The rest of the show is pretty meh though.

He's just so purty *sigh*

I actually thought the show was pretty good for SNL standards! I'll never be able to look at my meatballs w/o laughing now! And I thought that Law & Order skit was hilarious!

Sorry, don't have a Jakey icon - but look at how cute our pics match! They're smiling at eachother, it's like the Brady Bunch!

BTW, all those 24 commercials during SNL were KILLING me! 19 more hours!

The L&O skit was OK. I did like the sound effect and the end with the reciting of the L&O opening. Too many skits didn't feature Jake or only featured him for a bit. He should've been on the screen the entire time ;)

Jared wanted to get into the Brady Bunch icon tribute although he's not smiling. He's all angsty cause he may go evil or something.

It's almost time!! And is it just me or do they run the Ford commercials more now? My mom is all excited too!

Can always count on YouTube. From what I've been reading on a couple of forums, it's all been positive reaction to his monologue. Only one dissenting opinion how s/he felt Jake was "making fun" of his new gay fans ie. stereotyping with the drag and loving musicals.

Yeah, the cowboys made me a little uneasy, because they seemed to be leaning towards some kind of stereotypical actions, but I thought Jake's performance was really cool. I loved how the dress was somehow ... beneath? his shirt and jacket.

Yes, the arms. THE ARMS. Didn't that dress just totally show off his shoulders/arms? I read in an interview that Jake, along with Heath & Ewan, were the 3 actors in the running for Moulin Rouge. So I figured he must know how to sing but I don't think he's ever sung in public before.
