1. First up I have to say how thrilled I've been with the response that 9 to 5 received. I gotta say I just didn't expect it. Particularly as a lot of the feedback was about the song choice and the feeling that it wouldn't suit Supernatural, but that somehow it worked. So, thanks! :)

2. I have one more vid to post (next week) and then that may be it for a while. My hubby's family (from England) is descending upon us soon so the next 3 months are going to be pretty hectic. And me sneaking off to vid just won't look good. I mean, it's all good, we all get on, but life changes when visitors are around. I am hoping though I will have more opportunities to watch some vids and hopefully do some rec'ing. :) and any wee opportunity will see me opening my editing program no doubt!

Also, I have nothing screaming at me to make at the moment. I have a few little ideas floating about but nothing that feels urgent (like it usually does).

3. I have had a few requests to make a Castiel vid. I would like to but I don't know what angle to take on this angel. I mean if I could come up with something like THIS (Smile Like You Mean It), I would be pretty damn happy. This is a wonderful look at future Castiel and as much as anything shows what an incredible performance Misha gave us. All smiles and no happiness. Wonderful.

*koff* If you have any ideas you'd like to see me try let me know..... I can't ship Dean/Cas because it messes with my Sam/Dean OTP. (Though my crackish Dean/Cas vid might make it to air one day if I can figure out how to work some of the lyrics to "Wind Beneath My Wings".... "you must have been cold there in my shadow"..? nah, got nothing. Brainstorm anyone? *g*).

4. While I'm here, meta rec for 5.04 because bardicvoice writes wonderfully concise and insightful meta whenever she writes and this is no exception.

Phew! That's the longest blog yet I reckon. I must be gaining confidence! :)


PS: To those going to Wincon have an awesome time. Even though it would probably scare me to death I would love to be there to meet you all.

"an incredible performance Misha gave us. All smiles and no happiness. "

Now, ain't that the truth, but!
I was knocked out it. Now we have seen this actor offer up three totally different characterisations: Castiel, Jimmy, and "mojo-less"? Castiel. Very impressive.

Here's to courage, I enjoyed reading your blog. 9 to 5 was wonderful! Is it embarrassing that I have really vague memories of seeing the film, back in the day???? Was a Dolly fan, particularly her original of "I will always love you" from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Does anyone else remember, or just me? Now there's a song for you; but I'm Sam/Dean OTP too!
Whitney Houston did ok with it too, not knocking her!

Have fun with the rels, and we'll be waiting for you when you surface again! ;)

Yeah - his last performance really sold me. It's taken me a while to warm to Castiel... I think I'm finaly getting there! :) But I've always loved Misha - It's great to see they've given him the opportunity to show us his versatility.

You know, I don't think I've seen the film. It wasn't unitl maichan said to me that she has fashioned the icon on the film that I remember it was one! I might just have to check out that song by her... I've had 3 Dolly songs mentioned to me now... maybe I could make a thing of spn/dolly parton! *g*

Have fun with the rels, and we'll be waiting for you when you surface again! ;)

Thanks hun! I'll be around. Just not vidding so much. :)

I totally forgot to tell you I recced your vid on my journal! Which I don't have a handy-dandy link at the moment, but if you'd like, I can dig one up. :D

Oh you did?! Thank you so much darlin. Surprised I missed it.. I kept wondering where peps were coming from. I think I must have got some rec's I don't about. :D

Thanks hun. And I just saw all your lovely icons... might just need to do some snagging. :)

For the Castiel vid, perhaps it can be something showing his slow descent into rebellion? He was the mindless soldier, following orders, and then doubt starts to seep in when he sees that heaven -- and the people in charge -- aren't as pure and holy as he expected. His whole universe is then tilted, until he doesn't know what to believe anymore.

Add in what Raphael told him about the existence of God, and he's become both rebellious *and* hopeless.

Yes - sounds like a great idea. I actually really like this aspect of his character. Trick is... finding an appropriate song... *ponders*

I just went to check out 9 to 5. My son and I loved it. Great work.

Yay! Thanks... so glad you both liked it! :D

Oh, man, thank you SO much for even considering doing a Castiel vid. I absolutely adore all of your videos, and I'm sure you could do something fantastic with him. Here are a few songs I associate strongly with him:

I have more. ;)

Oh wow. I love these songs. I've had no idea where to even starting looking for music for Castiel.

Thank you so much. I'll see what I can do..... :)

I'm so glad you like them! :D Like I said, I have more. I've been collecting songs and fanmixes that make me think of Castiel for quite awhile.

Thank you so much. I'll see what I can do..... :)

Oh, man, I can't even tell you how excited this makes me. ::claps with glee::
