The Day After Tomorrow

Yesterday, I gleefully asked the question "When does The Day After Tomorrow start?" Since it starts Friday (tomorrow), the correct answer yesterday was...heehee. Fortunately, I am not alone in appreciating a corny joke. We're seeing it on Sunday, so come tomorrow, we'll be seeing the movie...the day after tomorrow. (hahahahaha...ahem.)

A natural disaster-oriented, special-effects-laden summer extravaganza. Dennis Quaid, handsome-older-man climatologist, has to rescue his son, sensitive hottie Jake Gyllenhaal, after New York City gets the freezeout. And what key locale would be of interest to one Lady Crumpet? Why, the New York Public Library!

I am a bit perturbed by the idea of characters burning books to stay warm. Let's hope they don't start with the special collections.

Maybe after the movie, I should go to the Jake's on N. Highland. Good ice cream and a cute boy behind the counter who looks a little like Jake Gyllenhaal. Hello!

There are rumors all over the Web that Jake Gyllenhaal will be playing the new Superman.

I just found out that Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal's uncle is Eric Foner, whose books on Reconstruction politics I can recommend highly.

I discovered this indirectly from a story I read today touting Jake G's literary parentage: his mother is screenwriter Naomi Foner. I quick visit to IMDb confirmed that she is Eric's sister. Personally, if I were inclined to be impressed by who someone is related to, I'd be more impressed to learn that someone is the nephew of the author of "Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution" than the son of the author of "Losing Isaiah."
