me in springfield

it all comes back to SPN, doesn't it?

Hi, everybody!

A few things I've been meaning to post about, nothing earth-shattering.

(1) A week and a half ago, I saw an interview with Javier Bardem, on whom I've had a mad crush since I saw Before Night Falls. And in that interview, he was charming and hilarious and interesting. And - here comes the SPN connection! - he mentioned that he learned English by listening to heavy metal (AC/DC and Metallica were the two bands he named). How very . . . ESL!Dean Winchester of him!

(2) I just caught part of Chances Are on tv. That's one of those movies I think I'd like a lot more if maybe I'd had a hand in the casting. I just really dislike Ryan O'Neal and Mary Stuart Masterson in this movie, and as a result have zero investment in the "correct" romances. Robert Downey, Jr., though - I adore him in this movie (and, it must be said, in most other things too). I cannot believe I haven't seen an SPN version of this movie, with Jess being Mary reincarnated, and pursuing John, then Sam. Seriously.

(3) I got an anonymous comment yesterday on a ficlet - I don't think it was concrit, because it wasn't really constructive, in the sense that I could learn from it and then apply it in my next story, but it was *trying* to be concrit. Anyway, as I told the person, if you want to leave me concrit, you don't need to be anonymous (nor do you need to be part of some brutal honesty meme). That "I'd love to hear what you think" tag I leave at the end of my fics means whatever you have to say about my story - good or bad - is something I'm interested in.
