HELLO!

Hey all, welcome to my blog.  

If you’re here because you’re tired of Supernatural and the cast- I have a lot of posts that will be of interest to you. Way too many. I kind of wish they’d retire the show and their stupidity. If you’re wondering why I’m trash talking your favourite show – there’s an explanation post here.

Please read the rest of this post if you’re wondering where the Supernatural recaps have gone.

If you have a general comment about Supernatural, the cast or whatever, I now have an open thread!

Cobra Kai: Season 3, Episode 2-10

Cobra Kai: Season 3

I watched this at the start of the year, but never posted this. Figure this is a good a time as anything!

TL;DR – This show can be frustrating at times, but it’s always entertaining!

don’t call it a comeback

Well.

Actually, we can definitely call it a comeback!

And for once, I’m not rolling my eyes at it (too many things are coming back without being gone away for long enough).

Anyway.

Nobody told me Big Time Rush were back!

I am here for it. I am ready. I don’t even mind that they’re playing shows in places I can’t get to. I am READY!

Not only was their TV show all sorts of awesome (and weird), but their music slapped.

To put it bluntly, music sounded better with Big Time Rush. I definitely liked them better than all of the bands that exploded on the scene around the same time they did (One Direction, The Wanted, etc).

I still listen to their albums from time to time (it’s not even a guilty pleasure at this point). I think they were hindered by their TV show, and also, their last album was a weird mix of songs that sounded like them and the rest sounded like they were trying to sound more mature and…eh. The first two albums bang, though.

Boyfriend is my jaaaaam.

Anyway, that is my contribution for today. I couldn’t go this revelation go unmentioned, lol.

Have people always been this rude?

So, I was at work the other day and occasionally some of us talk about football, just making conversation. Usually it’s me and another person. The extent of the conversation is typically me asking ‘what’s the score?’ and them telling me ‘it’s 3-0’. Maybe a few minutes discussing the game and that’s it.

Enter my coworker (imma call them Nosy) who doesn’t like football and will loudly tell you they don’t like it and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, they need attention, blah, blah I don’t care.

Anyway, as I was talking, I could see Nosy just standing in the area looking at us and listening in on the conversation.

In my mind I was like, ‘can we help you?’ but I didn’t say anything. The actual conversation lasted less than a minute and that was that.

… until I was near Nosy and they dropped it into conversation and said, ‘are you finished with the snoozefest?’

At first I was confused and then they helpfully repeated it a few times instead of shutting the fuck up.

Now, I have no issue lighting someone up for what I perceive to be bullshit, but I’ve mellowed in my old age. I prefer to take the high road.

Still, first of fucking all, are you okay, Nosy? You are hardly the most interesting person. Yet I’ve listened to you wax lyrical about what you’re making for dinner at least a hundred times. You’re not really one to talk.

Secondly, nobody was talking to you. You weren’t even invited to the snoozefest. Why are you commenting? WHY ARE YOU HERE IN MY FACE?

I didn’t even feed into it, I was just like, ‘I’m choosing to ignore you‘. I honestly said that right to their face (in hindsight actually ignoring them might have been better). Despite that, Nosy kept going and I finally said, ‘if someone is talking about something you’re not interested in, you walk away. No one is forcing you to listen.’

Go about your business!

I mentioned that half of the time I don’t know what Nosy is talking about and it is what it is. I don’t come in and say, ‘HOW DARE YOU DISCUSS SOMETHING I’M NOT INTERESTED IN AND IN A CONVERSATION I’M NOT A PART OF NO LESS!’

Fo’realz.

This is not the first time, but if Nosy catches me on the wrong day it’s going to be a problem. How starved of attention do you need to be to throw a strop over a two minute conversation? And it’s only because they can’t steamroll all over the conversation like they usually do (heck, maybe I’ll start bringing it up more often!).

Anyway, yeah… I don’t know what’s wrong with people of today.

The rudeness is unreal and I, for one, am not here for the bullshit.

P.S. What’s a polite way to tell someone to shut up?

the problem with podcasts

Somehow, I’ve been bitten by the podcast bug. It was inevitable given that they’re everywhere. I’ve had the chance to listen to (and abandon) quite a few podcasts and here are my perfectly valid complaints.

1. So. Many. Celebrity. Podcasts.

Does everything have to be permeated by celebrity culture? And with all the money they have, there is still a bunch of obnoxious ads littered all through the podcast. Podcasts are a haven for the D-Z listers of yesterday. I keep seeing these ‘BTS’ podcasts for shows like One Tree Hill and 90210… shows which probably don’t need to be revisited because they haven’t aged well.

Seriously, though, do we need more celebrity exposure?

Television

Fastlane

I actually really liked the first few episodes of Fastlane until I realised that… it was the same episode over and over again. I eventually rage quit when there was this really gross scene where it was just girls dancing in slow motion and I was like, ‘HOW MANY TIMES?!’.

Seriously.

Every episode there was a club or beach house scene with girls, girls and more girls. Most of the time our white, male lead falls for one of them and we get an awkward, sultry, slow motion love scene. Cringe.

Fastlane would work as a movie, maybe. Watching the same thing happen (in slow motion) for twenty two episodes is not good TV.

That being said, I don’t think I was the target audience for the show anyway.


Justice League Unlimited (DCAU)

I’m on the third season now. I like the show, but I think the reason why it’s not as good as Justice League is the ensemble cast. There are so many characters now that it’s hard to really get lost in it. I did like the Cadmus Labs arc in the second season, though.

Above all, there is not enough Superman. There’s not enough Batman. They should make a Batman/Superman show!

5 More Unique Gifts…

… for the ones you love, hate or love to hate!

[I wrote this a while ago but NGL, Japan Trend Shop is still my favorite website of all time.]

1. Pen Breath Odor Checker

Thanko’s Pen Breath Odor Checker is as compact and discreet as it the name suggests. It looks like a regular black ball pen, but the nifty device is actually a quick way to check if your breath smells before that important meeting with a client. Easy to use, you just breathe onto the device for five seconds while it beeps and then check the reading it gives you. Your breath odor is measured and “rated” according to five levels. And you can also write with it!

Discreet? LOL. How does one breath on a pen in a discreet fashion…? Also, post-COVID this is a no-go. It’s cheaper to just… buy breath mints, or if you want to go for a full 90s era bit, breath spray.

All is good under the impala hood

… or not?

The drama of yesterday is still ongoing. While Jared said all was well, Jensen’s aunt entered the chat and… well, she was not happy.

It’s funny how this seems to have turned into a Jared vs. Jensen thing. I didn’t look at it as Jared sending his ‘army’ against Jensen, but his follow up tweet about people not sending death threats definitely makes it seem like that’s what happened anyway.

I love the way he wrote that tweet too…he would be in true misery if anything happened?

For someone who is constantly on his phone, one has to wonder why he didn’t just call, but it’s not the Jared way. Judging by the traffic to my blog, he’s definitely on the losing side here. All the posts about his Twitter faux pas are hitting the numbers.

Jensen fans do not play either. He’s never in the wrong. And I guess per his Aunt, the damage is well and truly done.

I say they’re both wrong, and this drama is what happens when unstable people follow unstable person(s). This is also what happens when people lack boundaries and common sense and have a victim mentality. And this is what happens when people do things in a calculated and underhanded manner.

The biggest issue here is Jared was the right person to try this with. Instead of keeping quiet and letting what Jensen did sink in, he went looking for sympathy.

That never works.

Personally? I’m enjoying the drama. 😂 I ain’t got no dog in this fight.

Talk about being happy for your friends…

… or not, in the case of….Jared Padalecki who had this to say when Jensen tweeted about his Supernatural spin-off…

I saw his tweet and thought nothing of it. Yes, the last line was a little bit strong, but I don’t know what kind of friendship they have. Well…Turns out he really didn’t hear about it from JA first.

I wish I could say I had a better reaction but I literally started laughing when I saw the second tweet.

ETA: He even went after one of the writers involved in the spin-off (and wisely deleted it – credit goes to the person on Twitter who took a screenshot!)

Why is he like this?

Upon further inspection, I see I missed key signs in the first tweet. The lack of exclamation! The weird line breaks (why is he tweeting like this? Why can I picture him furiously smashing his enter key?!).

The ‘Sam Winchester had no involvement whatsoever‘ is clearly code for himself because it doesn’t make sense.

Surely, he meant (LOL) Sam Winchester isn’t involved in any way whatsoever?

Anyway, I’ll be fair to Jared. It does seem like a bit of a dick move on Jensen’s part to do this without at least a heads up? Although, I’ve been telling you all he’s a dick for years now so I’m not surprised.

On the flip side maybe Jared’s reaction is why he wasn’t told? He could have just wished Jensen well and then messaged him privately and we’d be none the wiser – until he inevitably had a fifty tweet rant about it.

At the very least, I’d feel more sympathy if he wasn’t constantly doing the most. Dramatic as he may be, he’s not necessarily in the wrong here.

Jensen, bro, what’s going on?

What was so bad that you couldn’t call Jared and be all like, “So, I’m creating a spin-off of the show we’ve been on together for the last fifteen years. I’m going to be narrating. You’re… well, you’re not in it at all actually, and uh…”

…I guess it would have been an awkward conversation to have.

Somebody update me on this mess because I doubt I’ll be keeping up. I only saw the original tweet Jensen posted by accident.

… and I literally finished work and somehow the blog has its highest daily hits since I started it ten years ago. I have no idea how or why, but uh… thanks? It’s nice to know the hours I wasted writing these posts weren’t for nothing thanks to Jared’s complete lack of filter on Twitter.

Apparently Jared did what he should have done in the first place and all is well again.

….I don’t even have the energy to mock all this brothers nonsense. Clearly, the friendship runs deeper on one side.

Is this really necessary?

In what should be a surprise to absolutely nobody, Jensen Ackles is not ready to let Supernatural go.

EXCLUSIVE: Supernatural, one of the most important series in the history of the CW, is eyeing a comeback with a new iterationwith prequel The Winchesters, centered on Dean and Sam Winchester’s parents.

… in the history of the CW… well, alright. I can’t work out of that’s a burn or just a sad indication and reflection of the network as a whole.

The show is produced by Jensen and Danneel’s production company…and all their other ideas sucked even more, I guess?

Does anyone even care about the love story of John and Mary Winchester at this point? Even the idea of Dean Winchester narrating it is boring. Isn’t he supposed to be dead?

Anyway, hard pass (and I’d be surprised if it was picked up, but anything is possible).

that feeling when it’s really batman!

Superman is just the best.

I don’t want to turn this into an impromptu Superman is the best post, so I’ll just snark about some of the animated movies instead.

Why are they constantly retelling Superman’s origins… or pitting him against the same villains. Not that it matters because half of the movie is just Superman and the other guy pummelling each other and smashing buildings…

… and that gets old after five minutes.

Anyway, I hear there’s a new animated series coming out about Clark, Lois and Jimmy hanging out at the Daily Planet, etc. Yes, yes and yes, I’m ready for it.

In the meantime I’m watching Justice League Unlimited now and it’s perfect. PERFECT.
