ash48: (Nothing but a song)
Ok. So I don't normally get excited about the singing part of the cons (yeah, yeah I know...I'm weird), but this... all the *deadness*

It's not only Jensen saying it's because it's the "basis of our show" (MORE DEADNESS!) but it's the way he sings it. It's like it's directly at Jared. This isn't just about Sam and Dean. It's about Jared and Jensen.

It's feels like forever since I've watched a fanvid (shame on me D:). This one caught my attention from twitter (thanks [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte). I'm a fussy vid watcher I have to say. If it doesn't grab me in about 15 secs I tend to click out. I didn't do that with this one. *g* It's beautifully edited - lovely rhythm. I adore this song and it apparently works perfectly for this incredible episode. If you want to feel all that emotion again, what this vid!! Though be warned - it's a little (*koff* a lot) gut wrenching.

Sharing in case you haven't seen this video yet. It's full of heart and captures the bond the cast seem to have on the show. It's very well made and may just have you reaching for the tissues (happy tears of course…)

Made by Supernatural Conventions. Credit here.

(also, someone recc'd a Sam vid recently. It was a lovely vid but I forgot to bookmark it. If it was you please let me know <3).

I really have the urge to read fic where Sam returns with Dean's food, he gets drunk and then we get ALL the feels between the two of them. We're unlikely to get that in the show (especially the wincest-y version I imagine), so I think I need to read it! (if anyone has any recs OR wants to write one *hint* I'm just here waiting).

While I'm here I'd like to rec this great vid by emerging vidder [livejournal.com profile] justmep2: Does That Make Me Crazy. This is only her 7th vid and she's done a wonderful job. This is about Demon!Dean - I love the way she's tied in relevant moments from Dean's past ago highlight the demon story. The editing is snappy and the song is great for d!dean. Check it out!

I'd also like to rec this tumblr post. I wouldn't normally do this but I think this highlights just how passionate SPN fans are. Even though this is probably WAY off course (not least because there's no way the writers would have even considered John's blood type), I think just the fact that it's caused a stir and got people talking and thinking is fun enough. It's a shame some peeps have been rude about it (come on! it's just a theory!) - but that just seems the way it goes these days. Sadly.

If fact, I've seen a few interesting things about S10 floating around. The biggest discussion point seems to be more )
ash48: (Winchester is Cioming)
I know I've recced this before but that's not reason not to rec it again (and again and again). It's one of my absolutely fave fanvids of all time.

I was watching it just now (for reasons) and I like the way it could easily sit in S10. Dean in Hell, Sam trying to save him and becoming a monster to do so. And the beginning of the apocalypse. Adore the song. Adore the editing.

ash48: (Winchester is Cioming)

I’ve been a little absent recently due to my parents visiting and lots of holidaying (yay!). However, I have been lurking A LOT and reading all your wonderful countdown to S10 posts. I’ve loved reading your recaps and looking back at the seasons in retrospect. I haven’t commented as much as I would have liked to, but please know I’ve been reading!

I am going to my own little retrospective with as few words as I can manage:

Looking back at S1-9 )

I was going to make this a separate post but I'm running out of time, so I'll cram it into this one.

Hopes (and Fears) for S10.

Each year I write a list of hopes for the coming season. Usually it contains things like "I hope we get to see the boys washing the car" and "I want to see their first aid kit". This time it feels more like deal-breaker hopes. I've long realised that I'll probably watch every episode of this show until it ends. I've been with it far too long to not keep watching. But my patience is running very very thin and if I find myself left with nothing but negative thoughts and feelings I will be making a very strong effort to step right back (as in, I won't continue with episode reviews if they're only full of WTF?! I think there's definitely room for show discussion even if it's negative - constructive crit is useful, but I'm, also aware that constant negativity is draining - especially if everyone else is squeeing).

So. Thoughts about S10.

nothing particularly spoilery )

A couple of recs: Great to see this interview/promo by IMDB. What to Watch (Spoilery)

and if you haven't seen [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c's vid Do My Thing DO SO! It's a great look at what makes Sam and Dean so awesome.

ash48: (Musketeers)
Guys guys! You gotta watch this wonderful Musketeers vid by [livejournal.com profile] el1ie. Even is you don't watch The Musketeers, go watch it. Even if you worry you'll get spoiled, go watch it. Sure, the images may spoil you but it won't really give away anything in the series. Other than spoil you for beautiful scenery and beautiful men. It's wonderfully edited and has sword fights!

The Inseparables *bounces* always puts me in a good mood after I watch it. :D

Finally had a chance to look at some stuff, so here with a handful of recs.

[livejournal.com profile] el1ie has posted a beautiful Musketeers vid Long Black Cloud. It's an AU about Athos, so even if you don't watch the show you can still enjoy the vid. :)

[livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett has created a crack vid to end all crack vids. Wrecking Ball (Warning: Hitler!) It's unique and brilliant constructed.

[livejournal.com profile] amber1960 has created some wonderful hurt!Sam and hurt!Dean art. There's definitely a story behind this image (it just needs someone to write it! *bats eyelashes*).

[livejournal.com profile] superkitte and created an AU vid about Sam saving demon!Dean, Slow Down. I have such admiration for people who can construct alternate realities videos.

[livejournal.com profile] blackrabbit42 is a writing genius and has created a highly entertaining (and hot hot hot) fic! Jared Padalecki and the Kinky College Adventure- A Choose Your Porn Story. If you haven't already read do so! You can chose one adventure or ALL OF THEM!

[livejournal.com profile] keep_waking_up's world building in her story Tails is fabulous. I got completely lost in the world of kitsunes and werecats. Kitsune!Jensen and werecat!jared are an absolute joy to read. There's action, adventure and awesome secondary characters. Even after over 67,000 words I didn't want to leave this world.

I have so many big bang stories and art to catch up on. Maybe that might happen this week. :)

  • I'm blown away how quickly money was raised recently to keep the fabulous SuperWiki running. A new, dedicated server was required due to all the information on it and all the visitors it gets. The goal was $2223 and that was raised in 12 hours! It's now on $3,625! The additional funds will go to the future running costs. There's still 33 days to go and I'm sure if you wanted to donate the money will be appreciated.

  • I've seen this posted on a number of journals. It's a lovely idea (SPN day of fandom love). Sad that we actually need to do something like this, but maybe drawing attention to how hurtful fandom wank can be, fans may think twice before being hurtful. Personally, I don't think "wank" is necessarily disagreeing with each other or having different views on the show. It's mostly about the way things are said.

  • Any of you into the Pacific Rim fandom? My darling friend and my long time vid beta [livejournal.com profile] _sharvie_ has made a Pacific Rim/Tron crossover AU vid! Incalculable, Unconditional. I was thrilled to be able to beta for her after all the years she beta'd for me.

I watched Scarecrow last night with [livejournal.com profile] zebra363. It's been a while since I watched a season 1 episode (though I did re-watch Devil's Trap a couple of weeks ago).

Something struck me:

aside from the fact that were such babies. With higher voices... )
ash48: (Ain't heavy)

This is a fan made film. I love how it's shot and the sensitivity in which it's been made. Check out the details about the film on You Tube (after you've watched because it's spoilery for the film) - I love the reasons for making it. It filled my wee heart with warm fuzzies. And on second viewing I might just have had a tear in my eye. The actors do a great job and I just have to say...Sam hair! :D
ash48: (Muffin?)
Care of the lovely [livejournal.com profile] el1ie

First an interview with the gorgeous Tom Burke (who plays Athos in the wonderful The Musketeers). This is interesting because he mentions a certain quality in the Musketeer's relationship that now seems to be a "dirty" word in the Winchester's relationship:

just on that (and a bit heavier, but it's something I've wanted to mention for a while...) )

The other thing that brought a smile to my face is re-watching [livejournal.com profile] el1ie's vid My Brother. Such fun and has all the brotherhood feels. :))
ash48: (Dean Don't make me lick your face)
Some stuff I've been meaning to rec for a while (time! that damn elusive thing. One more week and I have a lovely 2 week break).

recs- communities, vids and a fic )

And if you love the AO3 (which I figure MANY MANY do as there are now over ONE MILLION works posted there \o/), you might consider donating to help keep this brilliant site going.
ash48: (Dean facepalm)
The TV networks are refusing to run this ad in Australia due to commercial interests. So I'm gonna post it about the place.

(Coke are fighting a container deposit system which would help reduce plastic waste).
ash48: (Dean laugh!)
HA! This captures what was going on for me INTERNALLY. I thought me uttering a quiet "Sammy" was going a tad overboard...but this... LOLZ

(thanks [livejournal.com profile] stir_of_echoes for the heads up. I think this has made my day).
ash48: (Charlie dancing)
[livejournal.com profile] counteragent's amazing fan project The Other Side is now complete. There is an additional Gag reel part also!

I was privileged to see a lot of the raw footage and I can tell you that everyone seemed to have such great fun making this. The lead actresses have a natural chemistry and they have the same respect for each other that Jared and Jensen do. The casting couldn't have been better. They take their craft seriously, but didn't forget to have fun at the same time.

And [livejournal.com profile] counteragent works like a boss!! She had a clear image of what she wanted and an excellent understanding of how to get it. It's no mean feat putting together a film like this. Be sure to stop by and shower her with all the love and hugs.

Also, check out the brilliant movie poster by [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver. SO awesome.

Some other stuff...

[livejournal.com profile] bertee has put together an awesome collection of Gods on Supernatural. I didn't realise there were so many.

[livejournal.com profile] bertee has created some amazing picture posts over at [livejournal.com profile] spnroundtable. My favourite is one that's close to my heart Show Some Restraint. BONDAGE! \o/ There's also - choking, plaid, ladies, boys getting dirty (not like that! sheeesh...) and many more. Who says Tumblr has all the pretty!?!

[livejournal.com profile] galwithglasses has thrown in the towel! Check out the collection of towels used in SPN. Ha! I love collections...:D

Speaking of collections - I only recently discovered this one and it's SO COOL!

[livejournal.com profile] cloex_brosluvr has a Sam and Dean Tie Collection from all the seasons! I love it.

ash48: (Charlie dancing)

[livejournal.com profile] counteragent's Supernatural film, The Other Side, is here! \o/

Check out the "then" opening sequence she has just posted.

GO GO! Get excited! Part one will be posted next week!! WOOT!
ash48: (OMG)
I went to Swancon over the weekend and [livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow showed some A-MAZING videos. These two were my favourites (though they were all fab).

If you have a chance to watch these on a big screen I highly recommend it. They are mind blowing.

This is a constructed reality vid. He tells a new story with HEAPS of found footage.

Doomsday 1 - Lost Home by Norlack )

This video is made from commercials only. It's absolutely gorgeous and highlights just how beautiful commercials can be. Mini-movies really.

I've mentioned the Round Robin Vidding Experiments before. I've been involved in a couple of them. They are always great fun and I love the idea of vidders coming together to make a fanvid. The time the theme was Kick Ass. There were 7 vidders involved and 7 different fandoms.

Illegal0Immoral (The Vampire Diaries)
Ash48 (Arrow)
Starrylizard (Missing)
PsychoCynic (Avengers)
Coastal5 (Green Street)
CrystalSC (Haywire)
SLauveng (Sons of Anarchy)

I think the vid turned out really well. Lots in in clip movement and good beat editing.

For me it was fun vid some new source. Arrow is such a fun little show. Lots of pretty and plenty of action.

If you think you might like to take part in the vidding experiment check out all the details at Expanding the Verse There are details about the latest idea. If you have any questions, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] starrylizard is the co-ordinator.
ash48: (Discussion / no weapons discharge)
I had a lovely afternoon with [livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow today (yay! another WA vidder!) we chatted all things vidding and I'm excited to be part of a vidding panel at SwanCon.

She shared a vid that was made for her for [livejournal.com profile] festivids and IT IS AMAZING!!! SERIOUSLY! You HAVE to watch this vid. (It was recced to me earlier but I had only got a chance to watch it today).

Staying Low by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl. The footage is from the Alien films and it will BLOW. YOU. AWAY.

I saw a heap of other awesome vids which I will share if I can get my act together. I am playing catch up with a number of things at the moment. /o\

I watched Amour last night. One of the most amazing and affecting films I think I have ever seen. No wonder it won the Palme d'Or and the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. It's absolutely beautiful - beautifully directed and acted. It's also incredibly heartbreaking and painful. The title is perfect for the subject matter. I couldn't stop hugging my husband after watching this. I recommend it to anyone who likes stories that explore the human condition.

Watched eps of Arrow (I'm getting all the Oliver and Tommy feels now...<33), Haven (an ep that reminded me of Mystery Spot (Groundhog Day). It was wonderfully constructed and I was having all the Nathan, Duke and Audrey feels) and the latest ep of Spartacus (just when I thought it couldn't get any more brutal...*guh*. It was hard to watch, but still amazing).

And now...a brief word about that stupid anon non-comm )

Yay, long weekend! Another day off tomorrow! \o/ I so need it...

ash48: (Oh yeah)
Some must see posts...

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c has made (another) vid made of awesome. This time in the form of Winchester clothes...;) Winchesters' Thrift Shop GO GO! (I know you don't need me to tell you that!). So much fun. Hilarious and great editing.

And the super fab [livejournal.com profile] galwithglasses has made two delightful picspams: D is for Dean and S is for Sam So much love! And I just love ALL the words and caps she's found. GO GO!

Me: I'm trying to catch up on stuff around the place. I'm about to fall head long into a mini nightmare at work (what a mess it all is /o\), so I might be somewhat distracted the next couple of weeks. Though NOTHING will distract me from the next ep. SO SO excited for it.
