Words can't describe how much I love this vid!!! Jared is just so sweet and adorable, especially when he's lost for words and repeating himself. <3 And his Moose heart!!! OMG, I love it!!!

So excited to be finally posting this. Jared and Gen have been teasing us for a couple of weeks now with the most gorgeous photos of them with Thomas and Shep and today they finally announced the arrival of their precious little girl, Odette Elliott Padalecki, born 17th March, 2017.

Have missed Jared on social media lately. So it's awesome to see him posting again.

He live tweeted the west coast feed of 12x14 and then posted this on FB this morning:

The love he has for his AKF campaign still (and always will) tugs at my heartstrings. Even when he doesn't have an active campaign going on, you can tell it's never far from his mind or heart.

He also posted this gorgeous pic welcoming Genevieve to Instagram:

Oh gosh, so adorable, funny, cheeky and emotional. Jared's 1st lot of Facebook vids for the start of his amazing Always Keep Fighting campaign.

LOL. Playing hookey on set

vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
Absolutely loving how active Jared has been on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook so far this year. Let's hope he keeps up with the regular postings as he always brings a smile to my face and a warmth in my heart and soul.

Lots & lots of lovely Jared!! )

Been an awesome night of Padalecki gorgeousness and surprises and now I'm off to bed.

Love the attention Jared is getting! Live on Kelly and the FB live Q&A with ExtraTV both on Monday, 7th.

Am super curious and excited as to what Jared will be sharing with us!

Also, for some reason, his AOLBuild series interview has been cancelled. :-( Hope he can still do it in the future sometime.

After live tweeting the west coast feed from Jared's trailer, along with Misha and Rob Benedict, the boys head over to Facebook and livestream the last act!!!

No ep spoilers in either vid, just awesome boys being even more awesome!!! Jensen totally channels Dean when he can't work out how to turn off livestreaming. LOL

If these over-actors hurry up, then I'm gonna watch Supernatural with y'all tonight!!! The episode is fantastic :)(Sorry Rob Benedict, I really meant to only call Misha Collins an over-actor...)

This was truly one of the most difficult episodes to film. SO intense. Luckily, I was surrounded by great actors and in the hands of a phenomenal director, Nina Lopez-Corrado. #supernatural #RedMeat

Misha posted this on his FB this morning.

Dear Jared Padalecki,

I have a quick question for you, but in order to ask it, i need to give you a little background on an event that is unfolding at the moment... Here's the background: Right now (this morning) at The American Culture Association's academic conference in Seattle, there is a panel being conducted called "Fandom As Protest Space" where Tanya Cook is presenting her paper titled:

Always Keep (Nerd)Fighting: Durkheim’s Collective Effervescence and Fandoms as Reformative Social Movements

And, this is the abstract on the paper:
"In his pioneering sociological work on how religion is fundamentally a social experience, Emile Durkheim theorized that individuals experience collective emotional highs when worshiping together. This “collective effervescence” creates a heightened, shared experience that helps to differentiate between the sacred (religious rituals) and profane (mundane, everyday reality). Thus, Durkheim argued, when individuals join together in religious worship they are not actually worshiping a higher power but are worshiping themselves as a collective or social group. In this paper, I apply Durkheim’s concepts of collective effervescence and other sociological theories to science fiction and fantasy fandoms. Through case studies of the Supernatural and Nerdfighter (John and Hank Green) fan communities, I argue that the collective effervescence fans experience through consumption of the show/media has resulted in a bridge to social movement mobilization for some fans. Led by celebrities in the fandoms, fan participation in the Always Keep Fighting Campaign, world-wide scavenger hunt, GISHWHES (or Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen), and Nerdfighteria meetups represent new alternative and potentially even reformative social movements (Aberle, 1966). Just as religious worshipers enact their values through social justice ministries or service work, some fan communities have effectively leveraged the collective effervescence fans experience after consuming the show and interacting on social media into real and measurable impacts in the world."

Now, Jared, I'm no academic (although i too have written papers on Durkheim's "collective effervescence"), but from the passage above, it sounds like we are at the helm of "social movement mobilizations" which tap into some of the same social fabric that enshrouds "religious worship." Add to this the fact that Supernatural is often referred to as a "cult show" or a "cult hit," and i think you have the makings of an interesting proposition...

Which brings me (finally) to the question portion of this letter: Jared, if we are in fact on a "cult show," and we are harnessing a "collective effervescence" akin to the worship of a "higher power," would it not be accurate to argue that we are actually cult leaders? And if we are cult leaders, would it not be reasonable to conclude that we should (while interest rates are low) invest in a sprawling, fortified compound that features underground bunkers, throngs of devotees wearing earth-toned linens, and hillsides peppered with dwellings configured to maximize polyamorous sexual encounters?

Let me know your thoughts.

You pal,

to which Jared replied:

My dearest Misha,

I must admit, that was quite an astute, dashing encapsulation of our current mortal coil.

I feel obliged to thank you for sticking to your initial forewarning of a "quick question". Dare I say it, I've heretofore never been met with such brevity when dealing with pertinent matters.

I shall initiate my humble response by, first, thanking Tanya Cook for her observations. It is an honor to meet a fellow Durkheim-ophile (though, alas, only across the inter-webs).

That having been said, I would be remiss to not acknowledge the earliest of the sociological vanguards. Namely, the very subjects that prescribed their lives and limbs to the teachings of Jesus Christ, Allah, Buddha, Confucius, et al. Durkheim was CERTAINLY notable in his observation of religion and its subsequent effect on the social experience, but I contend that the phenomenon existed LONG before it was given a name. The souls that first experienced said "collective effervescence" were, arguably, as important to the subject at hand as the man who gave it a name.
After all, did "oxygen" exist ONLY after being labeled? Was "America" just a dream before Amerigo Vespucci was honored by the attachment of his moniker to the glorious plot of land in the Western Hemisphere?

There can be no seller without a buyer. They are part and parcel of the same experience. (My dear Bard might even suggest, "A rose by any other name...")

But I digress.

Whilst in the throes of leaden contemplation, it occurred to me that you, too, considered yourself to be part of the construction and completion of the vehicle with which I (and Jensen Ackles, obv.) inspire the thoughts and feelings by which the masses revel in the aforementioned effervescence.

That's cute.

Seldom does one of my storied followers count themselves as a cog in this rarified wheel.

So, it is with pride (and a touch of amusement), that I assure you that such a fortified complex does already exist; in the minds of the blessed few who are endowed with a child's imagination, in the hearts of the scorned lover who is certain of a brighter day on the horizon, and in the souls of the dreamers who, amongst a collective conscience, inspire us all.

In conclusion....

Yeah dude. I'll call my banker. I'm pretty sure I can get a 7 year adjustable between 3% and 5%. If we got enough land, we could ride dirt bikes and stuff. I bet we could even set some stuff on fire and try to see who could skip rocks the best.

That would be pretty sweet.

Call me tomorrow.


to which Misha responded:

Sorry, man, when I didn't hear back from you, I assumed you weren't interested, and now I'm in escrow on this place with Daniel Radcliffe. Those rates sound great, though. I'd love to chat with your mortgage broker. Text me his 411!
vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
Starting with the best first....

Season 12 is official. We are getting a fucking SEASON 12 of our amazing little show that could!!! I couldn't be happier at this wonderful news. Even though I was pretty certain it was going to happen, it's great to get official confirmation. I'm am in no way ready to say goodbye to the boys, to Baby, to the whole SPN 'verse.

Even better I heard it from Jared himself during his latest and oh-so adorable FB livestream.

And he looks so delighted at the news as well! This was another amazing chat with Jared that gets me all gooey inside and grinning like an idiot. Oh and when he took off his beanie and shook his hair out I think I may have died for a few seconds.

The timing couldn't have been better as I was on a midnight-8am shift at work and having the shittiest shift I can ever remember. Too many rude, arrogant, stoned customers making my life hell and to top it off, one of them got pissed when I wouldn't (couldn't) do what he wanted and he smashed his foot into the windscreen of my car (which is parked next to the night-pay window), shattering it. We've got him on camera and I'll be putting in a police report but as I don't think he can be identified (he came to the petrol station on foot, not in a car) I doubt anything will happen.

Then five minutes later while I'm still majorly pissed off and shooting steam out of my ears, I get notification that Jared is about to livestream and get this huge smile on my face. Seeing his beautiful face, hearing his hearfelt words about Show and AKF and how he thanks us really helped me get through the last 4 hours of my shift without killing someone, getting fired or both.

And I have the best brother in the world. When I rang him and explained about the windscreen and that I couldn't afford to get it replaced til late next week, meaning I wouldn't have the car til then and have to rely on public transport to get to and from work, he agreed to pay for it ($360!!!!) and I'll pay him back in instalments from my next few pays. Love you, bro!!!!

Welcome back, boys!!!!

It's almost as disturbing as the googly eyed vid they did for AKF2 that Jensen posted:

Hey Jared Padalecki...I'll see your 1st outtake and raise you a second. And for all of you who are joining the fight at represent.com/JaredJensen we are humbled and amazed. Let's keep it up.

Another reason I so look forward to Jared's AKF campaigns is he posts almost daily pics and vids on FB, Twitter and Instagram.

Jared on instagram: The same pose in the same spot, exactly 1 year on...... Mind-blowing that even after 5 campaigns you guys are still supporting #AKF more than ever, with our biggest first 24 hours of sales on represent.com/Jared (link in bio) yet !!
vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
March 3rd was the 1 year anniversary of Jared's wonderful Always Keep Fighting campaign. For a solid 24 hours my TL on Twitter was extra full of love and appreciation for Jared and everything he has done to shine a spotlight on depression and other mental health issues. Check out the #1YearOfAKF tag for all the love from so many fans all around the world.

Jared went live on FB to celebrate AKF's 1st birthday and launch AKF5 and it's probably one of my favourite vids he's done so far. Jared was so emotionally open that I was in tears. He actually had to compose himself at the beginning, taking a few seconds and saying "I'm a professional, I'm supposed to be able to do this," showing us a side of himself we very rarely get to see. In interviews and at cons, Jared is always so upbeat and assured and very rarely at a loss for words, almost hyper at times and I love that part of him. But what I think I love even more is being given a very precious glimpse of Jared that perhaps only his family and close friends get to witness. That he is willing enough to show us this side tells me that he also thinks SPNFamily is so much more than just a catch-phrase and hash-tag.

It's also why I've connected so deeply to his AKF campaign. With Jared personally affected by the very issues he's talking about, it feels very personal and intimate. He has touched my heart in ways I never thought possible and for that I will be forever grateful to him and his wonderful campaign.

Goin live to announce some awesome stuff!#AKFrepresent.com/jared

Jared posted this vid to his facebook page:

I work crazy hours, even when I’m home ! Best part about being in Austin? Picking up the kiddos!Thank goodness for McDonald's #AllDayBreakfast, otherwise I’d never fit in breakfast! #ad http://bit.ly/1mnGWe7

Posted by Jared Padalecki on Tuesday, February 16, 2016

and there are already negative comments about him "selling out" and "only doing it for the money", plus criticizing that it's for McDonalds and not something healthier, both in the comments on his Facebook and elsewhere (LJ, twitter. I don't do tumblr but I can imagine it's happening there as well). I wish people wouldn't always think the worse especially when they don't have all the information as to why Jared is doing it or how he benefits. For all we know he may very well be donating any money McDonalds is paying him to one of the numerous charities he supports.

Guess after the recent YANA fiasco (yes, Jared/AKF is involved but in a totally invisible way :-/ ) I'm especially sensitive at the moment when it comes to Jared. Just wish everyone remembered the saying I grew up with: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

This whole campaign is so amazing I want to document it here in all it's glory.

Can our boys possibly be any more awesome, adorable or insane????
