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.

"...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.
