Found via mrsr58.  I had to put this here as well.  Jensen is interviewed about his Eye of the Tiger Performance.

growyourwings: (Default)

Do you love us?  Or what?  I mean really!???   Three conventions in March!??  We really hype you up, don't we?

(And Jensen's going back to Asylum???  Is that in May?  (*is too lazy to go look.*)  I guess they must have beefed up the security to re-assure him or something.  I'm so glad he's going back.  SPN-love and the Js have to go EVERYWHERE so everyone can see how wonderful they are.)

And I see Misha's getting around.  He's going to be an old pro at this rate.

All's well in SPN Land.

O, btw, I'm watching this DVD--"Finding the Future.  A Science Fiction Conversation."  I saw it mentioned in some of the obituary notices for Forrest Ackerman--who I guess is one of (or maybe the original?) SciFi fanboy.  I obviously majorly FAIL and should have my scifi card revoked for not knowing about him until he died and I read it on Wil Wheaton's blog. 

This DVD is basically an overview of Fandom  and Scifi Con's.  It's such fun to watch!

Here are some memorable quotes that I actually wrote down when I started watching it a few days ago.  Most of these are Fen trying to describe who they are...

a willingness to imagine differences

a willingness to look beyond the everyday

fandom tends to be more accepting of differences among people on our own planet.  Or differences among each other.

Fandom is a very accepting community of differences among people.

Everybody is an alien to everyone else.

Science fiction fandom is actually a tribe.  We're a tribe of individuals who have unique characteristics of mutual and common respect.

Fans are freaks and geeks.

Their ability to accept just about everything and everyone.

What do you call someone who is not a fan?  A Mundane.

A Mundane is a non-fan.  People who don't "get it."  They call us freaks--we call them Mundanes.

[regarding Mundanes...]  We see them as people that there really isn't anything--we can't talk to them about anything--they're not reading books.  None of this excites them.  None of this interests them.  They think the current consensus reality as they've been fed it, by whoever feeds it to them, is all there is.  And that doesn't bother them!

We question why things are.  We question authority. 

Fans are all interested in ideas and speculation than gossip and keeping up with the Jones'.  Who gives a shit what the Jones' have?

Science fiction is the future.  What has been science fiction in the past has now become science fact in many cases.  We are doing things today that our grandfathers knew wasn't possible.

OMG--look at the TIME!  I slept so much yesterday, I wonder if I'll ever get to sleep tonight...

I have so many photos of the boys.  I got this great new-to-me camera (used) just before I went to Chicago.  I was able to use my old lenses from my film Canon camera.  So was able to use my telephoto lens to get great shots of the boys even if I wasn't in the first rows. 

The camera also has fast shutter speeds so I could rapidly take photos--which I learned at the LA Con is really important with the boys--especially Jared--moving around all over the place.

So here's the first of my Breakfast posts.  I don't know how many photos I'll actually post on LJ.  Too tired (and partially blind) to make that decision right now.  And if my brain and memory is alive enough, I may add commentary for the photos.  (Oh and btw--the numbering I'm using is for my reference and may not be totally sequential.  They are the numbers used to store the photos on my hard drive.)

Jared entered the room first.  Followed shortly by Jensen.  They had two microphones and the mikes were not that close so I wasn't always able to get them both in a shot while still trying to avoid the backs of the heads of the people in front of me.

Jared was wearing his black coat again.  For a guy who sweats a lot--he sure wears hats and coats a lot!  He did take the coat off almost immediately though for the breakfast.  At the panels he wore the coat and black beanie hat all the time.  He had on one of his standard blue plaid button ups.

He is a major cutie.  I had photoops with both the boys separately and together this time (like in LA).  In LA I was all befuddled because of Jensen. 

Jared's photoop was first this time.  When I walked up to him he looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Hi Babe, how are you doing?"  I smiled back and said, "I'm doing great, how about you!?"  And I swear his face was about two inches from mine!  I quickly turned my head for the photo, said thanks and let.

He completely blew my ZEN!  I was so calm and feeling so "not a newbie" and Jared completely blasted that away.  I was giggly for hours afterward.  Just ask[ profile] fickleone .  

Sorry I digressed.  Here's cutie...

Not bandwidth friendly... )

growyourwings: (SPN Jensen EOTT Jensen Rocks)
I'm now reading that some LJ'ers are thinking that at the 40 second mark in the Eye of the Tiger clip, you can hear Jared say "I love this guy" or "I love him" or something like that.  (I'd link to the post talking about this but it's friend's locked and in case they don't want it "out there" I'm not going to mention the LJ name.)

I hadn't picked up on that, so I just re-listened.  I really think I hear Jared say something like this. 

Plus, BTW, it's at the 45 second mark that I think I hear a "Jared clap".  You know the kind where he's throwing his head back and laughing?  It's just before the drums really come into the song so I could be mistaken.  But I can't help but hear it.

So to recap we have (in no particular order):
  • Jared supposedly setting up this by deciding to not hit the top of the Impala to see what Jensen does.  If that's the case, it's an amazing ad-hoc performance by Jensen.
  • The "Jared Smile" Jensen beams out at the end of the performance
  • The smirk/kinda smile Jensen gives when he's sitting in the window--in the direction a lot of us believe Jared is.  Like he can see Jared laughing and Jensen is just hamming it up for Jared.
  • Jared perhaps saying "I love this guy" or something like at at the 40 second mark
  • Jared perhaps clapping at the 45 second mark
  • Jared perhaps saying "Alright Jenny" at the end.  Which could also be someone calling out "Alright cutting".  (But I still hear alright Jenny and I definitely like that reality better.

And how pitiful is this that I've watched this thing 10 million times.  It's loaded on my desktop and I can't resist rewatching every few hours.

I'd send the clip to many, many friends and acquaintances over the weekend.  One co-worker told me this morning that she can't stop watching it and that it just made her laugh.

And the YouTube view count is at 78,500 and counting.

Plus I'll take any "recognition" Show gets in any way.

Clipped from one of the many YouTube postings of the Eye of the Tiger clip.

The clip was put up about 24ish hours ago...

growyourwings: (SPN J2 Secret Language)
allie-quixotic pointed this out.  And I think she's right.

I've watched Jensen hamming it up to Eye of the Tiger, oh, about 10 million times now.  And after reading allie's post I've slow-mo'd through the last few seconds many times.  *is pitiful*

Look at Jensen's smile after he drops the character of Dean at the end of the clip.  He first smiles off to his right thusly....

Then he dips his head down (does anyone else *love* when he does that?).  And he looks up to his left.  His eye's immediately latch on to something and he.  Just.  Beams. 


Allie points out that this is Jensen's "Jared Smile".  Again, after watching this in slow-mo several times I really, really agree.  He is so looking at Jared with that smile.  There is a difference between his smile to the right and his smile at the end.

And as I pointed out to fickleone, how pitiful is it that I watch these boys so closely that I recognize their body language so well that I can tell when one is looking at the other?????  (Assuming I'm right, that is.)

ETA:  I just have to add in that hearing Jared laughing and chuckling during Jensen's/Dean's performance--just makes this clip that much more terrific. 

ETA2:  Oh and btw, I so hope someone writes some fic based on this clip.

growyourwings: (SPN Dean I'm Batman)
Is it my imagination or does Jared yell out, "Alright Jenny!" at the end of this?

I've spammed just about everyone I know this morning with this.  I fell in love all over again with SPN, Dean, and Jensen when I saw this last night!

I didn't GET it at first--but look at Jensen's name!

Love it!!  What a Freudian mistake.  You think the captioner is a fangirl?

[ profile] missyjack does it again!  Go here to see her take on the new Zoolander movie with Jensen.

I'm very tired.  We just returned from a few days at Sunriver.  Had a great time.  More later about that. 

Just before I left I noticed a Dark Angel S2 marathon and set my TIVO to record.  I'd already purchased S1 & S2 DVDs but I've misplaced the S2 DVDs and hadn't watched them yet.  And of course those were the very season I wanted to watch because of Jensen.

I've been transferring from TIVO and converting files tonight.  Watched a couple of episodes--Assembly Required and Gill Girl I think.  Jensen is terrific and gorgeous of course.  The rest?  *shrugs* 

Also just before I left someone made a relative cryptic post about "Berrisford Agenda" -- a Dark Angel episode. Someone commented on all the "pretty" in the episode.

Around 10pm tonight I finished converting that file.  I just opened it for a few minutes to make sure the audio converted okay.  And OMG.  I got hooked.  The whole episode is basically Jensen.  And Jensen with glasses!  I could not stop watching despite how tired I was.

So worth it.


Man is he gorgeous and talented.

ETA to [ profile] fickleone - I have to figure out how to get you this one file.  From what I understand it's the best of the bunch.

Just collecting to view later when I have time to breath again.  Don't watch if you are spoiler-free for S4 E1.

 Both Jensen and Jared would love to do a western-themed episode, though Jared mentioned that he couldn't see the boys in spurs and cowboy hats.  "Assless chaps?" Kripke asked.  "Yes, please," Jensen responded.

This meme came to me via [profile] fickleone (her list is here) and [personal profile] mrsr58 (which is here).  And wow it sure takes a long time to put together.  I haven't even looked at theirs yet because I didn't want to be influenced.  Of course, 1 minute after I post this and/or look at theirs I'll think of 3-5 more that I should have included.

I had trouble with this meme.  What makes a man sexy to me is not just his looks.  Yes, sometimes I’m shallow enough that looks is enough.  But if I know something about the individual...for example, that he’s a bit of a idiot or an egotist or something, then despite his looks, he will not be sexy to me.  Also a man who may not be truly sexy in a purely visual way, may be very sexy to me because of his personality or some other aspect. 

I tend to like darker men.  Not so much the blonds, which is why you wouldn’t see Brad Pitt here.  Yes Brad Pitt is drop dead gorgeous in a purely physical sense.  And he may also be a great human being (don’t really know)--but for some reason, although I can “admire” his body (grin), he just doesn’t do it for me. 

However sometimes I break that rule.  Such as with Robert Redford.  Definitely blond.  But Redford has something on top of being physically gorgeous when he was younger.

I’ll admit that sometimes the reason why I find an actor sexy is not so much because of the actor himself--it may sometimes really be the character(s) he plays.  I may find the actor himself to be just okay.

And as for the ranking of these men.  Other than the top 4-5, I could probably reorder these multiple ways and still be satisfied with the results.

Heavy duty picspam is under the cut.

I was inspired by a comment by [personal profile] laurondo  to do a tribute post to Steve McQueen after Todd Farmer's interview referred to Jensen Ackles as a "young Steve McQueen." 

I admit it's been years since I've watched a Steve McQueen movie.  So I went out and downloaded "The Great Escape" from iTunes and rewatched it this afternoon.  I wanted, at the least, to nab some screen caps of the solitary scene comparing those images of Hilts to Dean in FPBs. 

Plus while I definitely associate Jensen with McQueen, I wasn't sure that McQueen had the same abilities as Jensen to express so much by the raise of an eyebrow, the look in his eye, his body language, etc.  I wouldn't be able to tell that for sure from one action movie.  But I wanted to look for it.

Read on for my McQueen tribute and comparisons to Jensen.  (Note none of the images are mine unless I mention I took a screen cap.)  At the end I make my pick between who wins--Steve McQueen or Jensen Ackles.

Someday perhaps I'll do a "bad ass" Dean picspam.  But for now I hereby declare Jensen Ackles to be the New and Improved Steve McQueen.

But you know what?  Any public comparison of Jensen as a young Steve McQueen can only help draw attention to Jensen, where he can then blow them away with his acting and all-around nice-guy while still being cool abilities.  Being associated with McQueen's "mystique" can only be a good thing.
growyourwings: (Default)
According to an interview Todd Farmer did HERE.  AND someone called Jensen a "young Steve McQueen" 


"TF: There's no camp. There's some real humor that comes out of real situations but no camp. It's still creepy and still atmospheric. These are real people facing real scares and real brutality. And when I say "real" I mean quirky and flawed and loving and pissed off and brilliant. And much of that brilliance is due to the actors. Jensen Ackels [sic] is a force of nature, always surprising you with his choices. Patrick calls him a young Steve McQueen. Kerr Smith brings a depth and intellect that I'm not used to seeing in his generation of actors. The movie is better with him in the role. Jaime King is beautiful with a smile that melts and breaks your heart at the same time. This was an emotionally and physically demanding role which she nailed. Betsy, Edi, Kevin, Tom, Megan...all in all it's humbling to have a cast like this giving performances like they've given."

I added the bold, italic emphasis (cuz it's the most IMPORTANT part of this after all).  AND I did NOT add the mispelling BTW.

Perhaps [profile] fickleone will remember that even before FPB I compared Jensen to Steve McQueen.

ETA:  Yes I'm geeky.  I just searched my email and found this which I emailed [profile] fickleone on June 1, 2007:

"For some reason I started thinking today about what "old-time" movie star you could equate to Jensen.  For some reason Steve McQueen came to mind and won't leave it.  So what do you think?  Jensen = Steve McQueen?"

To which she replied:

"YES!!  I love(d) Steve McQueen."

Now I have to find the airing date for FPB--because this was likely AFTER that.  But oh well...I still called. it.

ETA2:  FPB aired on April 26, 2007.  So perhaps that caused Jensen = Steve McQueen to wedge itself in my brain.

Just watching this.  Never heard of Ring of Endless Light.  IMDB says it was done in August 2002.  I've never been a huge fan of young Jared.  I feel pervy enough sometimes with my obsession with these boys.

I haven't watched of this yet so I don't know anything really about Jared's character in this.  But he's definitely cute and adorable as always. Perhaps his character will turn out to be a jerk.  But still---look at this.

Cute, huh?

I'm getting quite the collection of clips and videos around both the boys.  I've started files on Appearances (cons, interviews, etc.) and Actors (videos etc from other works of the SPN actors).  My Jared file now goes from 2002 (with the additional of Ring of Endless Light) to present day.  I've got either Jared clips or whole files of RoEL, Young MacGyver, Flight of the Phoenix, Cry Wolf, House of Wax (*shudders about the wax thing*), the TV Guide Sexiest Star.

For Jensen I have a bunch of files I still haven't gone all the way through of clips from Days of Our Lives, a movie(?) called Sweet Valley High, that interview taken I think during DOOL where young Jensen is riding the horse, S4 of Smallville, a clip of the Smallville cast during a trip to Puerto Rico, the teaser clips from Ten Inch Hero (man I SO want to see that movie--I really hope they show it in Chicago), clips of Jensen on Good News Weekly(?) in Australia, and Jensen's various interviews from his March 2008 Aussie trip.

Okay--I'm definitely obsessed.
growyourwings: (Default)
[personal profile] missyjack  just posted a link to this Youtube vid from an Australian news channel covering both the boys' recent Aussie trips. It has a few snippets I haven't seen before. You know I can see how Texans and Aussie's would just naturally get along. I loved Jared's story of someone approaching him in a bar and buying him a drink. And Jensen samming (that's a true typo that I almost deleted and then decided whoa--Freudian slip?) hamming it up for the Aussie interviewer.
