Via [ profile] missyjack  is a rec for a great picspam by [ profile] myflower of the Lost cast over the years. 

I just recently started rewatching Lost after not watching for almost 2 years.   I'm all caught up.  I'm watching because of how much I loved Lost for the first two years and because it was the show that turned me on to all the possibilities of media on the internet.   AND certainly MOSTLY IMPORTANT---I found my way to SPN via Lost.  

I've loved so many characters on Lost, Sayid, Hurley, Sawyer, Locke, Jack, Sun & Jin, Desmond.   And I found myself getting surprisingly nostalgic and almost teary-eyed viewing this fantastic cast picspam.

Head on over to [personal profile] dramaa_princess for a great picspam of Vancon.  I love how she put this together.  With icons too!

I can't figure out my favorites from this picspam.  Too many good things to pick from.

Not my picspam---but I've looked at the My Bloody Valentine Jensen picspam that[ profile] moondropz did here--about five times today. Man I can not WAIT until this DVD becomes available.

And I also cannot believe that I just said that--I mean REALLY? Me? Waiting for a SLASHER movie DVD?


Prior to seeing moondropz picspam I'd been (again) thinking earlier about how is it that I've become so ... invested ... in the careers of these two actors.

And yes I've said this before and yes here I go again...

I mean I've been a fan of genre TV/movies since I was a kid. I've loved many, many shows and characters and even actors. But never. Never. Have I become so invested in careers like I have with these two.

I mean I have list of actors whose work I will just about always go see....Harrison Ford, Will Smith, and others..but I'm just drawing a blank on names. However just because these actors have shows or movies it doesn't guarantee I'd go see it. Maybe I might wait a few weeks/months/years...or just never get around to it.

But I showed up for the very first showing of two SLASHER movies. Even though I'd sworn to myself in the 80s that I'd never go see stupid, bloody, nonsensical slasher movies. Pfftt! (Miss La-Di-Da here.... *sheepish grin*)

I never even hestitated even though I suspected I'd get sick to my stomach.

And unless these two turn into self-centered Hollywood a**holes (which I can't even imagine), I will likely be doing the same for whatever they do for the rest of their careers.

And I really can't imagine that I'll end up doing this for any other actors in the future. Even if I end up loving their work. I just can't see it.

I think this is a once-in-my-life occurrence.


I wasn't going to include any MBV caps here--just point to moondropz. But I went to pick just ONE to prettify my journal. And Ugh! I could NOT pick just one. So I've put several under the cut. Please go see moondropz entry linked above for more and more and more of the GUH.

Oh and if you haven't seen MBV, but plan to and don't want to be spoiled. Don't click.

Jensen under the cut... )

Thanks so MUCH to [ profile] moondropz (see her post HERE with MOAR!) and [ profile] justfreefallin for the picspam and the screencaps!

I'm totally DEAD.

[ profile] mrsr58 did a Dark Angel Jensen picspam today.

While I've seen Dark Angel and have picspammed it myself, I was totally UNDONE by seeing Jensen in all his glory again.

As I said to [ profile] mrsr58 , you'd think after being a Jensen/Dean girl for a gazillion years, I'd have a little immunity or something.

Guh. I had to include one particular Berrisford Agenda shot that I missed when I did a BA picspam back in September.

Plus, as an added bonus a gorgeous My Bloody Valentine shot of Jensen that Mrsr58 did a while ago that I've been meaning to post as well.

gorgeous under the cut... )

Found via [ profile] raloria .  A still from MBV with arms to die for.

growyourwings: (J2 Oops we did it again!)
There were so many great photos and stories from the J2 Soapbox Red Bull Soapbox event.

I just had to do a picspam of my favorite pics.

Under the cut for lots of picspammage )

[ profile] raloria just posted 524 screen caps of The Berrisford Agenda here!

This one really gets me. I mean really how can one man be so....*is wordless*

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'm late early to the birthday wishes.  (So many folks posted mid-day yesterday--likely non-Americans--that I thought I was just under the wire with posting for Jared's birthday.  Turns out the birthday is July 19th!  So I was actually on the way early curve for my time zone.)

Was having fun re-learning CSS and playing with my LJ layout some more. Was able to fix all my CSS errors! So now I have that little LJ user symbol showing up when it is supposed to. Plus I fixed some minor formatting errors.

But back to the important thing..... wishing one of our favorite two actors a very happy birthday!

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.

So the second thing I read this morning is THIS.  A Top 15 from [personal profile] ellel on Dean's Smiles. 

*AAAHH That hits the spot!"
growyourwings: (Default)
Can be found here.

Love seeing a more "happy" Dean from S1!

Side Note:  My 3:30 am bedtime last night is REALLY catching up with me.  I am so, so tired.  I just finished my CBT course so I signed off work.  I will likely conk out within an hour.  But can't bring myself to walk away from computer, so I'm going to do a bunch of Mac software updates I've been putting off and go out to my mailbox--cuz I think I may have some cards waiting for me there.  So if you don't hear from me for a bit (ha! unlikely) it means I've conked out and I'll see you on the flip side Houston.

I haven't even gotten 5 minutes into watching this and I saw something I never noticed before.

Just a moment though--first I just have to say *sigh* oh boys how I've missed you...

Then I realized that I'd watched AVSC so many times after it first aired, that I assumed I wouldn't get a lot out of watching it again. 


When the opening "Special" title came on, I SMILED.  When I saw the opening sequence of the grandfather and grandson I smiled and grimaced.

THEN I noticed THIS...

This is what I remember from the opening credits...

But I just happened tonight to pause this shot above because I wanted to screen cap it.  As I was moving backward and forward one millisecond at a time.  I noticed THIS>>>>

1) We go from this lovely (gruesome) shot...

2) Through this sequence....

3) to THIS!  (I NEVER noticed this before, did you?)

And then it very goes very quickly to the shot we all remember.  And I mean so quickly that you don't even see it unless you happen to step through it millisecond by millisecond.

I love Jared, I really do. But I started as a Jensen/Dean girl and I feel somewhat deprived with all the new Jared photos and stories. I need me some Jensen/Dean. I'm crossing my fingers that now that the boys are back in Vancouver filming, more Jensen stuff will be forthcoming.

But in the meantime. I need me some Jensen. So I'm doing my first ever picspam. It was so hard to choose amongst all the great Dean & Jensen photos. So I just did a random sampling.

1. I love, love, love the Australian Channel Ten ads. I wish we'd have ads like that here in the states.


*sigh* Now I feel better.

Spam me with your favorite Jensen or Dean photos.  Pretty please?
growyourwings: (Jared-OMG)
Thanks to [ profile] katysam    who made available lots of great photos of Jared at Supanova. Go check it out here.

I just had to snag all of them. I only had a chance to look through a few. It's pretty late and I do need to actually get up and work in the morning.

But look at these!




I can't wait to get some time tomorrow to look through the rest of them.  And Imma gonna make an icon I think out of that last one.  I just love the way his head is angled.

ETA:  I couldn't stand it.  I DL'd the rest of them.  Found this one...


And then had to make this...

And P.S. to Jensen---we need some new photos of you! Do you want this to be the Jared show?

Trying to catch up on the weekend's Supernova appearance by Jared.

I love that "Jared Padaleki, star of TV series Supernatural, caused the most excitement at the expo on Saturday" according to According to one fan quoted in the article:

“He was so nice! He reached across and shook my hand and smiled. He was very talkative, exactly how I expected him to be. He’s gorgeous,”
Well naturally he was! *sigh* Hey! Uhuru --- Nichelle Nichols was there! Someday I'd like to see a Star Trek convention with Shatner, Nimoy and others. But right now SPN has to come first! (and yes I know Shatner and Nimoy aren't getting any younger.)

And OMG look at this! (credit to samushy @


And I'm not sure who took this. I found it linked over at [personal profile] keepaofthecheez .  I love Jared's hats!

Just taking a quick moment to update. I think I'm going to have to apologize to my flist soon for spamming. Ever since I discovered LJ Book I want to use my LJ not just for fandom stuff but for RL stuff. I love the thought of being able to capture experiences and thoughts so that I can browse through them years from now. So if this starts to get too spamming for you all--I won't be insulted if you defriend.

I'll likely start posting more private posts as well. I do tend to "not care" about sharing too much. But there are limits--even for me!

Yesterday Mr. GYW took me to the coast to celebrate my birthday! We live in Oregon and the coast here is beautiful, unspoiled, all public, sometimes rocky (in Northern Oregon), and frequently cold and rainy. But I still absolutely love it! The ocean both calms and energizes me. I used to come over all the time before I met Mr. GYW. Unfortunately he's more a mountain and desert person. So when we do go places we have to balance his love of the mountains etc with my love of the ocean.

We're in Lincoln City at the Surftides. We have a room overlooking the ocean. I'll post photos later. It was clear and sunny all the drive over here until, you guessed it, we actually got to the edge of the ocean--then it was fog-bank city. But the fog cleared around 9:30 pm last night.

Last night there were fireworks over the beach. We could stand on our balcony and see them. It was cool.  We went to bed kinda late so Mr. GYW is still snoozing away while I'm sitting by the balcony watching and listening to the ocean while I browse the net a bit.

Just did a quick (and I mean 1 min) look see on my flist and found this post with photos of Jared in Australia. Man he looks terrific.


Then [profile] fickleone (by way of [personal profile] mrsr58) sent me over to Jim Beaver's MySpace blog.  He seems to be such a great person.  I used his RSS feed to subscribe to his blog through my flist so I can be sure to keep up with his entries.  I really hope he's at either or both ChicagoCon 2008 or LA Con 2009.

[personal profile] bellanut posted a great S3 summary picspam to celebrate tonight's episode.  I just finished it.  It's so great!  I felt the heartstrings in so many areas.

Work?  Don't ask.  I'm getting more convinced that the "time of life" may have something to do with this.  Cuz work?  It really ain't the different from normal.  Just my tolerance/reactions to it.

Got my vodka lined up for 9pm tonight, though.  I'm so conflicted, anxious, nervous, fearful, happy (cuz a new SPN!), sad (cuz the last SPN for quite a while), and more.  Part of me is so wound up that I'm afraid the episode can't possibly "live up" to my emotional expectations--so now I also add "worrying about not likely the episode because it disappoints" - to my list.  *headdesk*
