New Vid! Top Ten Motels of Supernatural 
22nd-Jun-2014 07:29 pm
Geeking Out
Last Friday I had some free time and wanted to make something I could finish in a day. This has been on my mind to do for ages - but I kept putting it off because I couldn't narrow down my choices. Then I figured it didn't really matter because it's about showcasing the fact that SPN has awesome motels.

Title: Top Ten Motels of Supernatural
Vidder: ash48
Music by: Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones
Length: 3.04m Size: 56 (mp4)
Summary: The title says it all I think. :)

Watch/DL/reblog: You Tube || 4shared || tumblr

Thanks to missyjack for checking it over.

(I'd be curious if you can't see this. YT tells be it won't play in some countries, but it no longer tells you which ones).

*waves* I'm in NZ and I can see it :D

Great vid hun, LOVE the song choice. And now I want to go back and rewatch all those eps, which is a good thing, since I haven't watched any SPN since 9.23

*waves* across the land and water to NZ!

Thank you! One of the very first motel pic spams I saw (and inspired my later ones) was called "Gimme Shelter" - so I figured it would be a good song to use for this. :))

Watching the older eps is SO rewarding. There's a warmth that's nice to go back and feel (they always remind me why I feel so deeply in love with this show in the first place *g*).

That was wonderful. Amazing like all your vids, but with an added warm glow of nostalgia. I have always had a deep love for the motel rooms.

Thank you! I seem to be stuck a little with being nostalgic at the moment. ;)

I have always had a deep love for the motel rooms.

Oh me too! (and the boys in them! *g*)

hey, excellent vid <3. i can see it on youtube too, left a comment there also. :)
23rd-Jun-2014 09:51 am (UTC)
Hi! Thanks so much. So - are you in the US?
22nd-Jun-2014 12:57 pm (UTC)
Look at the great motels!! :D \o/ ...and the boys in them... *g*
And of course the YT version is blocked here in Germany. -_-

23rd-Jun-2014 09:55 am (UTC)
I figured one of the countries would be Germany. :(

Hee... and you know me. I love me some motels! (and strangely, I have been missing them lately. Last season they only stayed in 3!)
22nd-Jun-2014 12:58 pm (UTC)
Oh Lordy, some of those rooms would give a person nightmares. Of course, even if Wyeth's Western Inn just had bare concrete walls it would have been worth adding for the towel scene ;) What I find really interesting, other than the incredible decorating they've done for some of those sets, is the enormous size of the motel rooms. Obviously they can't have the boys falling all over each other to move around but are motel rooms in the US big like this or is it purely artistic licence? I stayed in a lot of motels in Australia when I was younger and the rooms were tiny and poky.

Nice work with the vid. Perfect song too.
23rd-Jun-2014 09:57 am (UTC)
Oh yes! The rooms seemed much bigger than ones you'd actually get. And so much more interesting!

And of course I had to include the motel with the towel scene! I wanted to included the motel with wet!Jensen too but I ran out of numbers. ;)
22nd-Jun-2014 01:25 pm (UTC)
I can see it in the UK :)
23rd-Jun-2014 09:57 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)

What joy it was to look back at all these stunning motel rooms! I must admit to having a huge fondness for the rooms with murals. But I agree to your number one choice - plus the boys' reaction is just perfect!

Such as great song choice too! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

(I can see your vid and I'm in the UK!)

Oh me too! I adore the murals. :))

Thanks for watching and commenting! <3

Fabulous idea for the Ash treatment!!! And I saw it fine here in Turkey.
23rd-Jun-2014 10:00 am (UTC)

Oh and yay for seeing it in Turkey! :)
22nd-Jun-2014 03:26 pm (UTC)
So cool!
23rd-Jun-2014 10:00 am (UTC)
Thanks. :))

I love this! Great choices on the rooms. It's fun to see little snips of the action because I can focus on other things than the whole big plot. I love Ava's eyeroll and the fact that the sniper bullet smashes through a blue rose. I also never paid that much attention to how Dean looks with the cattle horns in the Wyeth room. The Boogie Inn is just over-the-top awesome. Cheer in the midst of angst is also awesome. Thanks hugely.
23rd-Jun-2014 10:05 am (UTC)
Thank you hun! Proof that we can still enjoy something in the show that doesn't cause angst!

I also never paid that much attention to how Dean looks with the cattle horns in the Wyeth room.

Me neither! It was just making this that I really noticed it. Rather amusing!

(And I was checking how many motels the boys stayed in last season and I counted 3. So few).

GRRRR!!! Looks like I'm one of the unfortunate ones who can't watch your great new vid, dear.
*glares at idiotic GEMA*

This is all about some stupid copyright issues and started two years ago. And because every party still thinks they're the righteous ones, a whole country has to deal with the repercussions.

PÖH!! :( :( :(
23rd-Jun-2014 10:07 am (UTC)
Ah yes, Germany blocks so much! :( There's a download there if you want to watch it. :)

22nd-Jun-2014 07:20 pm (UTC)
Yay! You made it and it is awesome! You've picked out most of my faves - I think you picked the right one as #1 but my personal fave is the Aviary one in Dream a little Dream - so much going on there and the boys colour coordinated too.
23rd-Jun-2014 10:10 am (UTC)
I ADORE the Aviary. Personally I think it has more going on than the The Boogie Inn (and works really well into the overall story/theme), but I had to put Boogie Inn first just because it's such a classic and was the first really "out there" motel. :)) And I love how the boys react to it. :))

Thanks so much for watching and for your (as always!) lovely comment. <333

Thanks so much sweetie! <333

Hehe, that was really awesome. I agree with all of the choices and the song fits perfectly. :)

That's weird about YT.
23rd-Jun-2014 10:12 am (UTC)
Thanks so much!

And yeah, it was helpful knowing which countries it was blocked in.
22nd-Jun-2014 11:24 pm (UTC)
This is so amazing. <3333 I can't even imagine narrowing them down--I adore all their motels to pieces. (I feel like I want every single case in S10 to take place in like, Alaska, so that simply driving back to the bunker is not an option!) And I love that the motel from 1x19 is still the only oddball setting Sam and Dean have really reacted to. Too, too cute.

Also, the song choice made me really happy and then it made me really sad, which is A+++++ in my book. <3
23rd-Jun-2014 10:17 am (UTC)
Hi! Thank you so much. I admit to really loving the bunker when it was first introduced (because the boys initially seemed so happy there) and now it's feels like such a miserable place - full of animosity between the two of them. As much as I love the idea of them having a "home", I really miss the motels and them being on the road.

It's a very sad song - but fits the notion of the boys in constant war and needing shelter. *hugs them*

Thanks so much for dropping in! :)
