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.

I think it's hilarious that you mention both Javier Bardem and Robert Downey Jr. in this post, because I think they and JDM all look like they could be brothers. When I first saw Denny on Grey's - before I watched SPN - I was like, 'Wow, they got Robert Downey Jr. to play a patient?'

Hee! When I first saw Denny, I was with a friend, and she was like, "that guy looks just like Robert Downey, Jr.!" and I was all, "no, he looks way more like Javier Bardem!"

Chances Are-SPN fic! Why has no one written this? Is it just too damn obvious?

It was waiting for you.

You know you want to write it!

Oh man, yes. I was watching No Country for Old Men and had the weirdest few minutes trying to figure out if that was actually JDM or Robert Downey Jr. It was more apparent that it wasn't either one after that first little while, but still.

I haven't seen the movie yet - I need to take some time to work myself up for scary movies - but let's give JDM and RDJr. credit for being sane enough to say NO to that haircut.

The Coen brothers literally cut JB's hair without telling him what the final 'do would look like. Gah.

big_pink made a post about the similarities and wanting to see Chigurh's (Bardem) hair on JDM and god help me, this reminded me of that and I'm actually trying to manip it now. Somebody stop me :(

You are supposed to use your talents for good! Not eeeeeeeeeevil!

Seriously, they should all be in a movie together. It'd be awesome!

Dude, front of the line is where I'd be (and I'd save you a spot).

*nods* yep, everything always comes back to spn. XD

And DEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAN. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

he mentioned that he learned English by listening to heavy metal

"...regrettably, he is now only able to converse via screaming, and only about topics related to alienation and rage..."

Hee, I could not stop laughing when I read this.

And Satan. Always Satan.

The interviewer - she was annoyingly giggly and flustered throughout the interview (though in her defense I would have been much worse) - asked why he didn't pick a storyteller like Dylan or Springsteen to learn English from, and he just shrugged and said, "AC/DC, Metallica," and then did a little headbanging. SO ADORABLE.

Hee! Headbanging is just one of those things that can't NOT be adorable. Especially if it is, for instance, Dean - headbanging in the car while Sam sleeps obliviously beside him. Mmmmmm.

YESSSSSSSSSSSS. To Javier's multilingual headbanging and Dean's enthusiastic (but quiet, volume's down low because Sammy needs his sleep) headbanging.

1. That is so adorable. I love Javier Bardem quite a bit.

2. Chances Are is one of those movies where I like a lot of it but then I get weirded out by the ending. I rant about it a lot to my mother. "It's the romance that says, hey, don't worry, in your next life, you'll FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR DAUGHTER. Yeah!" But your plotbunny, ahahaha, that story is yours, man.

1. Isn't it just? He is so squeeworthy.

2. It's a weird movie.

3. HA! I got an awesome het-writer to comment on this clearly het fic outline, which I'm pretty sure according to fandom rules means that you have to write it. Hop to it, missy!

Javier Bardem has to be JDM clone. It's been a while I haven't seen Robert Dawney Jr., so I can't really say about him.

Anyway, I never noticed how much alike JDM and JB looked until big_pink pointed it, despite being a fan of Javier for a long time. If I'm not wrong, there was fic with John and his half-brother, but I can't remember who posted it.
But, erm, if you feel compelled to write something, I'll be over there, waiting for you.

Hopefully I won't be writing anything based on the resemblances (I've got plenty on my plate right now), but it is nice to think about the three of them in a movie together. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Oh, Javier, how are you so awesome...

I don't know! Whatever he's got, he needs to bottle it.

Your phrasing is the best thing ever.

I think it was the ESL!Dean Winchester. *G*
