Jared auditioning for Sam. Have watched this more times than I can count and love it every single time. I love all the physical nuances he put in, the pauses and glances, arms crossed, hand through his hair. He isn't just reciting the lines. He is Sam, right there on the screen. Such a wonderful performance!!

vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
Very, very happy to wake up to this wonderful news from Jared this morning!!!

After a very, very stressful 5 1/2 days of nearly tearing my hair out, of sending emails and calling the agents office and leaving messages, I just heard back from the property manager to say that the duplex is mine!!!!

Still have to go over details, when I move in, length of lease (hopefully at least 12 months), etc but it's like a huge weight has been lifted off my chest and my mind. Had actually been feeling quite ill this morning with the waiting and not knowing.

I will miss this place though. It's been home for me and Scully and now Sam for the last 10 years. I'll miss being able to walk him from home to the parks along the river. Will still drive Sam to his favourite spots so he can go swimming but it won't be the same as being able to walk there. I have already worked out longer walks we can take on both sides of the river that will still give Sam plenty of off-lead exercise. There are two bridges a few kms apart that we can use to cross the river safely. It should be 3 or 4km circuit.

It was also here that I discovered what would quickly become my all-time favourite fandom, my addiction and my obsession--- SUPERNATURAL. Can't quite believe I'll be in another home barely a week after the season 11 finale.

So now I can concentrate on getting my current place sorted out and packed up. There is a hell of a lot to be done as I really want to declutter and get rid of a lot of the stuff I've either dragged from previous rentals or acquired in the 10 years (10 friggin' years!!!!!) I've been here. Have bookcases full of books that I will need to sort through and decide which ones I can bare to part with. 90% of them I haven't touched since putting them there, so they should really go to other homes where they'll be used and read and appreciated. Plus if I can get some money for them that I really need right now, then that will make it easier let them go.

Back before CDs and DVDs and the internet I was a compulsive and voracious reader. Wasn't unusual for me to spend a couple of hundred dollars in one visit to a bookstore. Eased off over the years since to focus on buying DVD's but I haven't lost my love of sitting down with a new novel by a favourite author and getting lost in the worlds they create.

I know which authors and books I won't be getting rid: Stephen King, Diana Gabaldon, Laurell K Hamilton, Harry Potter for starters. All my X-Files, Farscape and SPN books, season companions, novels, reference books, full sets of Quantum Leap and original BSG novels. Autobiographies of a lot of my favourite actors and musicians. I may not read them again but they are so dear to me that I just can't get rid of them.

And our boys blow me away once again. This is one of the most awesome vids they've gifted to us so far. We often hear from guest stars about how light and fun it is work on SPN and that's it all due to Jared and Jensen and the amazing set atmosphere they create but it's even more wonderful to actually see it, to witness them goofing around and so obviously enjoying themselves and the reactions of their very lucky guests.

OMG, the butt slap, the smoothing of the PadaHair (there's my dream job right there!!!) the expressions on Jensen's face which pretty much would be mine if I was there, Jared's "Don't stare!" and then background action is called and the boys compose themselves and we capture the transformation from Jared and Jensen to Sam and Dean. Truly stunning!!

I feel so honoured to be allowed to see BTS snippets like this. They don't have to let us see them but they do because they really do love us. I don't follow any other show as obsessively as SPN so I have no idea if this happens in other fandoms or is it unique to our little 11 year old show. Are we just that lucky and blessed to have J2 all to ourselves??

Went to bed still undecided about which pairing/prompt combo I was going to write for [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling. Had narrowed it down to either of 2 pairings and either of 2 prompts.

And my crazy subconscious did not let me down. Woke up this morning with a line of dialogue running through my brain and thought Yes!!! That's it!! That's the story I want to write!! Now to decide which pairing to tell it with. Of the 2 most likely, I haven't posted any fic with them but I have written a couple of unfinished fics.

My first thought was going with the pairing I've written most of but I knew straight away it was going to be very dark, basically non-con torture porn. Now I love reading that stuff and love writing it even more, but I was really worried about my recipient finding it disgusting and perverted and such a total turn-off that they wouldn't read past all the warnings I would have to include. Makes it hard to know how far I can go when we don't get lists of likes and squicks with the pairings & prompts. Heck, we don't even know who we are writing for so can't check out their fic list to see what they are into.

So back to the drawing board. I was really hooked on the 1st line so didn't want to try to come up with something else. Was taking my dog for his morning walkies and I swear to god I hear 1 of the characters in the other pairing saying a very similar line in my mind and all of a sudden all these scenes and snippets and ideas are flooding into my brain and I'm grinning like a bloody idiot as I'm so excited about what this fic can turn into.

So I've basically got the whole fic sitting in my brain. Just hope I can get it on the screen without it changing too much as I really love it so far.
vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
Well that was interesting. Will take a while and a rewatch or two to digest, I think.

All the love, all the feels!!!! Season 11 is so fantastic with each new ep as good as the last. Jared and Jensen are just knocking it out of the park and I'm loving the returning characters we've had so far and so looking forward to who we may still get in the 2nd half of the season. Also loving the season arc and big bad, Amara, Sam & Dean's individual plotlines and all the MOTWS. Still having hot flushes every time I watch 11x08 which is daily!!

Have no idea what 11x10 is going to involve but can't wait to find out!!! Jan 20 seems so very very far away. This midseason hellatus is going to be a long and cruel one, me thinks!!

Behind here be spoilers )

Loved this. It was so full of fun and awesomeness and heartbreak and Sam! OMG Sam was amazing (thanks to Jared being oh so amazing as well). I think due to how Sam-centric and Sam focussed it was, this ep has knocked off 11x04Baby from being my favourite ep of S11 and it's right up there with my ALL-TIME most favourite ep ever, Mystery Spot so that should tell you just how much I loved and adored it. Like MS, it was pretty much the perfect mix of LOL humour and heartbreaking emotion and superb performances by all the cast, esp Jared and Nate (Sully). So happy to know my Show can still please me to this extent in it's 11th season. May it continue forever!!!

1st time doing anything like this as I don't like having to ask for help but am in such a bad spot at the moment that to not ask seems a little crazy.

Hi, I'm Peta, 47 yo female and I live in Western Australia. Due to a rather serious situation with being underpaid for my recent annual leave, I'm going through a very rough patch at the moment. Am hoping my boss can and will fix things in the next week or so but until then I could certainly do with some help.

Here's a few things that would certainly make life a little bit easier right now:

1/ Gift cards for supermarkets like Coles and Woolies. Also for stores like Target, KMart and BigW. These would be so I can give a few close family members something for Xmas rather than spending them on myself. Any amount, no matter how small would be very much appreciated. Or for fuel stations like BP, Caltex, Shell. As I work for BP I know they do these but am not sure about the other servo companies.

2/ The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams by Stephen King. He's my all-time favourite author and I really would love his newest collection of stories. Or even just a gift card for Dymocks or an online Aussie store that I could put towards buying a copy.

3/ Pressies for my boy, Sam. He's a 5 & 1/2yo Black Lab who loves his toys. Rawhide knot bones and dumbbell-type plastic toys are his favourites. Also tennis balls would be loved for when he goes swimming in our local river. They tend to get holes pretty quick and sink to the bottom of the river, so am always having to buy new ones.

4/ Pay it forward. Have seen this on lots of wish lists and I think it's a wonderful concept. So if you are in a position to help the person behind you or even in front of you at the store, cafe, etc then please do.

5/ anything Supernatural related from Funko Pops ( I only have the original Sam & Dean and their mini versions) Would love blood-splatter and/or FBI Winchesters to SPN jewellery/wristbands/earrings. Also the SPN calendar for 2016 would be wonderful.

6/ Xmas cards from where ever you live. Funny or dog-related (or both) are my favourite and if you can find 1 with a black lab I will love you forever. It would be lovely to get a few in the mail & if you give me your addy, I promise to send you 1 in return when things ease up a bit money-wise.

My contact details or for extra info )

TV meme

Snurched from [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk and looks like fun!!!!

01. Earliest show you remember getting into.
Battlestar Galactica --- the original and IMO still the best. This show began my love of all things Sci-fi. I remember seeing it and immediately falling in love with the show and Dirk Benedict (Starbuck). He was my very first TV crush/boyfriend. This was in '78/79 before VCR's so if you missed the show or a particular episode on TV, you had no way of seeing it until re-runs months, sometimes years later. I was so happy when it was released on DVD so I could discover it all over again after not having seen it for over 20 years.

02. First anime watched.

Supernatural. It was ummmmmmmmm interesting. Weird hearing Dean voiced by someone other than Jensen but loved that Jared did all the eps for Sam. Will probably be the last anime I watch.

03. A show you've been meaning to finish.

Gilmore Girls. I watched the first 5 seasons a couple of months ago but then lost interest when Jared left. Then seeing the GG reunion panel vids last week, made me really curious as to how the show ended so I'm now watching the last 2 seasons.

04. 2 shows you abandoned.

The Beauty and The Beast and Defiance. Both because I just lost interest. I would download the eps but not watch them until days or even weeks later so stopped d'loading them altogether.

05. A series you're currently watching.

Supernatural. I know we are in the dreaded hellatus but I am ALWAYS watching my Show. Currently half way thru season 9. When I hit 10x23, I'll go back to the pilot and watch all 218 episodes over again.

Other than that, I'm watching Game Of Thrones, Sense8 & Aquarius. Going to be starting on a rewatch of Dominion season 1 to refresh before season 2 airs next month.

06. A show you're sad is over.
Farscape because it was frelling awesome TV filled with awesome and amazing characters and plots and action and feelings.

Boston Legal because I miss Denny Crane and Alan Shore like crazy. Hmmmmmmmm, think it's time for a rewatch!!!

07. Favorite series finale.

Nine Feet Under. This is gonna sound really weird because the finale was the only episode I did see but I loved it and given the premise of the show (set in a funeral home) showing how each character met their end was so fitting that I can't imagine any other ending. I really must watch the show one of these days.

08. A series finale you would change.

Quantum Leap. This is an easy one. I loved the whole series and the finale but I hated that Sam just kept on leaping and never got to go home. So I would have let him go home and see Al. Sam could have decided after that to keep leaping to help people as long as he could still go home at any time.

09. Worst TV program you've ever seen.

Big Brother and a lot of other reality tv shows.

10. A show that shouldn't have been cancelled.
Farscape Although we did get the awesome Peacekeeper Wars to wrap things up, I would have loved to have seen how they handled that plot stretched over a full season rather than a 4 hour mini-series. Plus any excuse to have more Ben Browder in tight black leather!!!!

11. A show that needs to end

Dr Who. Don't kill me but since my favourite and only Dr is Ten and he's gone :-( the show has already finished for me.

12. Favorite cartoon.
The classics, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tom & Jerry, The RoadRunner

13. Favorite reboot.

Queer As Folk (US version) Not sure if this counts but it's the only remake I can think of. I did like the original UK version, but everything about the US one is so much better. More eps, hotter guys, sexier sex scenes.

14. A TV adaptation you'd like to see
Stephen King's 'A Dark Tower' One of my favourite series ever. Like GoT and Outlander, there are enough books to have 7 or 8 seasons.

15. Saddest TV moment.

Sam dying in SPN 2x21 All Hell Breaks Loose. Dean holding his brother's limp body in his arms, telling him it's going to be okay, that Dean will fix him, then Dean screaming Sam's name as the screen fades to black.

Dr Who. Ten's final words before he regenerates. "I don't want to go." I had been sobbing through out the whole episode but those 5 words had me bawling like a baby for ages afterwards. It was as if it was also David Tennant saying that he didn't want to leave the show and I didn't want him to leave so I was a complete mess.

Farscape. Talyn!John dying. I knew as soon as they introduced the 2nd Crichton, that 1 of them would die, but it hurt so much seeing it happen, esp as it was the John who finally got together with Aeryn. So I was sad for her as well.

16. Most satisfying TV moment.
Anytime I sit down to watch the Supernatural pilot, knowing of the amazing and awesome journey I've got to look forward to with my all-time favourite characters. And knowing that there is still more brand new SPN to come.

17. A character you identify with.

Sam Winchester. Always trying to do the best but making some really crappy decisions along the way. Feeling like I'll never be quite good enough to please my family no matter how hard I try.

18. A character that reminds you of your friend.

Zahn from Farscape. Like her my friend is always there when I need to talk or cry or bitch or celebrate. She always seems to know exactly what to say or do to make me feel better.

19. Favorite talk show.

Don't watch them much but if I had to choose, then Jerry Springer. That show was soooooooooo bad it was good!!!!

20. Sports or nah.

Sports definitely!!! Love my cricket in the summer and Aussie Rules football in the winter. The Olympics every 4 years (both summer and winter) are my dreams of sporting heaven. 2 whole weeks of 24 hours sports coverage.

21. A TV world you'd like to live in.

Supernatural. Simply because it has Sam Winchester in it!!!!

Late to the party as usual... :-) I've been loving reading everyone's posts on the best of SPN so far, so with less than 24 hours to the Season 10 premiere, I want to list my favourite 5 eps (in no particular order) from each season and then my top 5 over-all.

I saw my first SPN ep in season 4 (Heaven & Hell, I think). Had known about the show for years before and had dismissed it and the boys as not-my-thing. Oh how wrong I was!!! I'm especially pissed off with myself as Jared and Jensen came to Australia for the All Hell Breaks Loose con in May 09 (so far their only con appearance downunder) and I missed going as I wasn't the addicted and obsessed fan that I soon became just a couple of months later. Saw Family Remains then went and bought the first three seasons on DVD the very next day and watched them as I began watching S4 live.

Season 1 )

Season 2 )

Season 3 )

Work has exploded this week. From thinking I'd have 4 days off, I ended up doing three shifts instead which is very good news for my bank account. Have another 2 this weekend to take me to 5.

Been feeling very under the weather with a thing that started as just a cough that spread into both my sinuses and chest. Been doped up on cold'n'flu meds and cough syrup that seems to be slowly making a difference.

So, figured I deserved something fun and good right now so headed to Amazon to spend some money. Put SPN season 9 on pre-order as well as the complete box set of 24 (price cut from $180 to $99 was too good to pass up). Also bought 2 John Barrowman cd's and a collectors DVD of a couple of his concerts.

That was so beyond words I have no words, just feelings, lots and lots of feelings.

Beyond amazing!!!

I think I may have just watched my new all-time favourite ep of my beloved show. It's definitely in my top 3 along with Mystery Spot and When The Levee Breaks.

Bravo to all involved but especially Jared, Jensen, Misha and Mark. Well done, boys. Bloody well done.

The few times I wasn't crying, I still had tears running down my cheeks--- tears of laughter.
