Another week, and another Supernatural actor doing something douchey. Sorry, I mean ‘deuchey’.
The drama started when JDM posted a picture of himself in a shirt with ‘Blue Lives Matter’ on it.
Blue Lives Matter = a countermovement in response to Black Lives Matter in the United States.
Needless to say, he got a negative reaction. And this is how he responded.
‘All lives matter‘
My favourite part is ‘I’m so tired of mean people‘ lol, who was mean to you before this, though? Isn’t he currently getting his ass kissed over his TWD role?
Anyway, after the bad press he ‘apologised’.
Hey folks, I’m gonna delete this thing. God knows it’s out there anyway. I stand behind the sentiment… but, what was meant as one thing has been taken as another.
I understand those that are upset… and to those people I apologize. Of course black lives matter. I stand behind that. Always have. My point.. Calling me a nazi for wearing this shirt, that was given to me by a cops grieving mother at a con? She wasn’t trying to undercut BLM. Nor was I when I put it on… that’s a promise.This country means the world to me. The good people in it mean the world to me… the ones looking for a fight around every corner? Racists? Bullies? They don’t.We are a country divided and its getting scarier everyday. Everyone means something.
Good people are needed. Now more than ever. I shall take better care in wording when posting opinions… but opinions? We all have em, and are entitled to them. I appreciate the ones on here that have been thoughtful responses… the ones that are filled with more hate…. let’s block each other forever shall we?
It’s gotten very tricky to say things that are politically correct that everyone agrees on. We can be offended by thoughts or opinions that we weren’t offended by yesterday. So again, my apologies to you. Ok, let me navigate this mine field a bit before I try again. All my best. Jd
‘Of course black lives matter. I stand behind that. Always have.’
Where’s the evidence? I haven’t seen him talking about black lives matter or racism or the disproportionate number of black people killed by the US police.
That the woman who gave it to him is black has to be the flimsiest defence ever. Like what goes for one black person should go for everyone. Where have I heard that before?
‘She wasn’t trying to undercut BLM’ – maybe not but the Blue Lives Matter movement was created to undercut Black Lives Matter. A simple Google search will tell him this.
I don’t think people should have called him a Nazi but I don’t have any sympathy for him either. If he’s bold enough to post the pic, he should be bold enough to expect and subsequently deal with the response that came. Has he been living in a cloud for the past couple of years?
His apology was a classic rambling non-apology. I’m sure his fans will say he’s liberal, anti-Trump etc etc. I’m sure he is. He’s just an ignorant asshole as well.
That was before I saw what the unlucky (and stupid) fan will be paying for:
Is this a joke?
Swag, memorabilia and….Personal Polaroid pictures taken from set (why the addition of the word personal? Are they sending dick pics?).
You might as well save your $4k.
Not even a set visit? Fucking FaceTime? What if you don’t have an iPhone or iPad? That’s a serious question. So I have to find someone and borrow their device because I’ve paid four thousand dollars for a video call that’s usually free. Lol. Fuck outta here.
Although, anyone silly enough to drop four grand on this foolishness would probably buy an iPhone if they don’t have one already.
The sheer brazenness of these people is disgusting.
What’s a fan got to do to get some real face time, though? Donate a kidney (+ transportation and their own medical costs?)
The replies are full of people saying they can’t afford it because they’re:
Paying for cons already
The last point had me rolling my eyes. None of these people have any common sense. They will be crying about con tickets while paying exorbitant prices. It was quite funny but sad at the same time.
WHERE IS THE LOGIC?
How can you complain when you have shown these people that you have bottomless pockets. Some of you will borrow money from people to spend one minute in the presence of these people and listen to them talk about their lives for two hours. Some of you will work multiple jobs to afford this shit. Some of you will complain after attending these things only to go again the next year.
One strategically tweeted #SPNFamily and everyone is rushing forward with open wallets.
All Jared and Jensen see is dollar signs. So excuse me for not having any sympathy.
What is wrong with you people?
Why are you entertaining this madness? You have been donating money to these people on a monthly basis for years now. Years. They will not stop taking your money until you stop giving them your money. Meanwhile, their money (mostly) isn’t going anywhere but the bank. The bank. Please have some respect for yourselves.
Like my friend put it:
Fools and their money. The guys probably came up with this scheme to pay for half of a teeth bleaching session.
Someone will have to tell me what the final bid was but $4k is probably what Genevieve spends on one ugly blouse per shopping session. Why would you donate money in the name of people who don’t value money in the first place. For all of the money fandom has collectively donated, how much have the guys and the wives donated? Have any of you demanded receipts?
Do any of you have at least one functioning brain cell?
If you do – please use it. I don’t really care, I just hate being exposed to such stupidity. Just seeing it makes my head hurt. If that makes me a hater, feel free to let me know. I will wear my title with pride.
Note to Jared and Jensen:
Please curate Supernatural’s cancellation charity raffle (at this point you might as well bleed fandom dry). Haven’t we all suffered enough? Let the show die a peaceful death already. Please.
I am always finding old diaries of mine and they have one thing in common. Pages and pages and pages and pages and pages of nonsense about Supernatural. Where I found the time, I don’t know. However, in between the facepalming, there’s always some good laughs to be found, such as this passage:
Linkin Park ‘Shadow Of The Day’s is such a rad song! I love it. Hehe. I just had an idea. I could fill up this book and like FedEx it to Jared and Jensen. Ha. It’s very unlikely but it’s an idea, right? AAGH. I’m going insane. I want to watch SPN.
I think watching SPN was part of the problem. (more…)
Comic Con and Supernatural are two things I actively avoid, but apparently my news app (ironically called ‘SmartNews’) is having a funny turn today.
Just reading this article gave me a headache. Castiel is dead but not dead dead. Mary is gone but not gone gone. Dead Bobby is dead dead but might come back anyway. Sam and Dean won’t agree on something or other. Crowley is definitely gone (LOOOOOOLLLLLLL at the article and the comments).
The show is dead in the water but not truly dead in the water.
Somehow they managed to pay Kansas enough money to perform, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
To conclude, nothing has changed and if you value your time, avoid the show. If you’re someone who has time to waste or problems letting go of fictional characters and/or poor judgement, by all means continue. (more…)
It’s the General Election Day in the UK! Apparently the Conservatives are on course to win…
…and if they do I will probably join the circus. It was nice knowing you all!
It’s also Comey Testifies Day in the US! And World’s Oceans Day. And… World’s Brain Tumour Day (I didn’t know that!)
It’s also I need a break from politics and shitty life day.
So, I’m going to revisit my favourite person who I have neglected of late due to apathy and having better things to do.
Here’s a post about Jared Padalecki being stupid.
Long story short: Jared ordered food using Favor. It didn’t turn up. He got pissed, huffed and puffed and took his complaints to Twitter.
I have no idea what happened past that his food didn’t show up, and he was annoyed.
Somehow he got talking to customer service and this tweet happened:
Dearest @ Favor “Kobe” at customer support needs to be fired. I’m sure he’d land happily with @united.
First of all dearest? What is this a greeting card? A letter to a long list friend? How courtship began in the 1950s? How do you waste seven out of one hundred and forty characters on dearest? His Twitter game is all the way off. Personally, I would have gone for a succinct ‘Yo’ or ‘Oi’. There’s passive aggressiveness and then there’s concision. The latter is more important.
Also, why – why – is he posting this person’s name on Twitter? Hasn’t he learnt? Oh, that’s right. Dude doesn’t give a fuck.
The tweet was posted (and deleted) in April. I didn’t see it back then, although, I did hear about it. I didn’t realise he straight up said the dude needed to be fired. For something that’s probably not his fault. And the ‘land happily with @united‘. I can’t work out what that was.
He wants Kobe to be violently mishandled off or onto a plane or just in general?
Or he thinks Kobe will land a job at United due to his poor customer service skills?
Or he’s just an idiot who really didn’t need to bring up United at all?
Correct answer wins a prize.
I saw the Pada Defense Warrior League hard at work. They insisted that Jared would never wish violence on anyone and that he felt horrible about what happened to the man on that United plane. And that he was within his rights to complain, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Something tells me that Jared felt more vindicated than horrible* when he saw that video. He was probably thinking, “THIS IS HOW TERRIBLY THEY TREAT ME MINUS THE VIOLENCE AND STUFF!!!!!!!!!”.
Everyone on his contact list probably got that video plus an essay about his unfair treatment.
‘Dearest Friends, if you haven’t yet had an opportunity to see this disgraceful act, here you go. Much of this justifies my complaints over the years!!!!!! I mean, weather delays, being forced to check a bag and every other petty thing imaginable almost equals the severity of this video when you add them all up and take into account my pain and suffering!….‘
Jim Beaver was also going at it with some fan, claiming that Jared has a right to complain. People were surprised, but Jim Beaver is never the voice of reason. Ever. That dude has no sense. I know I should respect my elders but people like him make it hard.
I’msure Kobe is just fine, but I am truly disturbed (yet not surprised) that Jared has no problem belittling people in this way. I’m disturbed that so many people think this is okay.
He talks about treating people fairly and kindly but doesn’t do the same to people he deems unworthy. No one who works in customer service is paid enough to deal with the bullshit. Sometimes, there’s absolutely nothing they can do, and customers getting pushy won’t change that.
On the flip side, yes customer support workers can be flippant and they shouldn’t be, but I probably would be too. You’re basically listening to people complain all day long. Sometimes as a human being (who breathes oxygen), you have to consider that the other person is just doing their job and that job doesn’t involve kissing your ass.
Like I’ve said before, the common denominator in Jared’s bad customer service experiences is him.
Anyway, if it’s alright for Jared to do it, I’m going to tweet the CW** and demand that they fire Jared because he’s annoying.
Hopefully he lands happily @ somewhere far away from any television screen.
*I’m joking, wildly speculating, opinion, didn’t happen, please don’t sue, or leave abusive messages etc etc.
Stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki took the stage at The CW’s 2017 Upfronts Presentation on Thursday to announce that the show will do an animated Scooby-Doo crossover in its 13th season. Although some thought it could be a joke, EW has confirmed that the episode is really happening.
When. Will. They. End. This. Stupid. Show.
Scooby-Doo doesn’t deserve this, he really doesn’t. I’ve lost count of the number of things that Supernatural has tainted over the years – its writers’ ability to write, its editors’ ability to edit the show in a non amateur fashion, or its cast’s ability to act, the minds of impressionable fangirls. This show is more destructive than a moth that’s impossible to catch.
Somebody please make it stop and go away forever. PLEASE.
This isn’t a new recap, but I found an old document with my thoughts on the episode and it was hilarious to me, so to anyone who misses my recaps – this is for you!
For some reason, I split it into the flashbacks and after the flashbacks. I’m not sure why I didn’t just approach it as a whole.
I’ve had a chance to watch it again, without feeling like I’m going to throw up
…off to a good start!
Sam addresses the body issue and makes Ruby take Ruby 1.5 back (NOOOO!!). Then we see Jane Doe in hospital and she’s in a coma and they call TOD and she becomes Ruby and Ruby 2.0 starts asking for fries (I hope she didn’t get any)
I was a huge fan of Ruby 2.0 if you can’t tell.
she gives him the ‘imagooddemonbecauseirememberwhatit’sliketobehumanandsoiknowwhatit’slikelosesomeone’ mumbo jumbo. Funny how she fails to mention that she wishes that she was like other demons…?? I mean isn’t that what she said to Dean when she spun him the same line?
On Dean and Anna:
I don’t want to see Dean and Anna being all lovey-dovey throughout the entire episode. But I’m not surprised that it’s Dean she’s gets with…but chemistry wise…I hope they make it believable because in the ep when they smiled at each other meaningfully I was all ‘why are they looking at each other like that…’ and it was more creepy than cute.
Lol! Now I remember that this was back when we all knew what would happen in the next episode because of the spoiler culture. Someone would more or less upload the script outline for each episode way in advance.
After a long jumbled block of text that makes little sense, I go on to assess each character.
He was AWESOME!!!
Mark Rolston was audible at least! The other Alistair sounded like he had marbles in his mouth.
I am in love with Castiel 🙂 In the sneak peek when Sam is like ‘Cas, please’ or whatever and just walks over puts the two fingers on Sam’s head and knocks him…that was hot…
Whaaaaaaat. In love. With Castiel! Wait, you know what, this was season 4, so I won’t judge myself. I also have no idea what I’m describing here. I’m sure that it was tepid at best.
He called Ruby a stain!! *hugs Uriel* and in the next one he attacks her!! I love him 😀 (Not as much as Castiel)
Loooooooool. *hugs Uriel*
Wow…what an entrance…10 secs of the ep and they still manage to steal it…especially Castiel….
Still not judging myself. Much.
What a bitch.
Truly my favourite character.
I wanna know what she did! But I feel sorry for her…good actress as well. ‘smoke ’em if you got ’em – I liked that
…Well, I’ll take my word for it. I barely remember what this woman looks like!
It was great how he didn’t judge Sam and he just listened….that was so touching
Oh gosh, I still liked Dean at this point! This is the ultimate throwback.
His girlfriend gave him the evils cause he lost the knife…shame on you Sam. Ermmmm his mojo doesn’t work…uhoh…and KILL AN ANGEL SAM????? Oh boy…
Jared was amazing though
I was a really bad recapper back then because again, I have no idea what the hell I’m describing here. I’m sure that Jared truly was amazing, though.
I WANT HER BACK!!
Ruby 1.5 – Better than 2.0
More evidence that 2.0 is my ultimate fave.
Overall it was a good episode weakened by GC as Ruby, granted she was a lot better but still bad and she ruined Jared’s scenes.
Lmao. She was a lot better but still bad…. Hahahahha. Oh dear. What a backhanded compliment.
8/10 from me..
Well, damn, 8? I haven’t liked anything that much since…Since…Since…Since…
… Yeah, never.
I’m kidding, I’m kidding…
I vaguely remember this episode being the start of what killed the show. The neverending Angels vs Something battle. In that season it was demons, but 4.09 and the episode after were both terrible.
Anyway, I’ve blocked it out from memory thankfully.
Surprisingly, there are some that search for me by name. I’m known, y’all. I’ve made it in life. There’s a lot for ‘supernatural season 12 sucks‘ even though I’ve never posted about season 12. How’s it been? Crappy as usual?
I need to start being nice about people! People only end up here when they look up d-bags. I want some positive search terms like, why is X a good guy? Or X saves kittens from trees!
… meh, who am I kidding? Lol.
[*Why do people have SO MANY questions about Night Of The Wild? I barely remember the movie, let alone if the dog died. Plus, if there was ever a movie to leave you with no questions that you need an actual answer for besides ‘WHY?’ it’s this one. It’s hilarious, though.]
Many months ago, I contemplated leaving this blog. It served its purpose and I was ready to move on. I haven’t watched Supernatural since 2015. That’s a miracle given that I’ve watched it every year from 2005 to 2015. I persevered and I finally weaned myself off that show.
But, I kind of like having somewhere to ramble about TV/movies/current affairs/whatever. My other blog is more of a personal space, so I think this blog is a good place for all of that randomness. And I’m always ready to call out Jared Padalecki. Stupid and senseless will always have a home here.
Just to clarify – there are no new SPN recaps on the way. At least not until the show has an end date. See what I did there? Anyway, I have some Lifetime Snark coming up. A couple of TV posts. Maybe I’ll finally get around to watching RIPD. I will be hating on more things (of course).
Regarding the Trump posts, they’re not going to be weekly anymore.
The outcome of the healthcare bill they passed is grim. That a country that claims to be as open and free (well sort of) and have values, and actually care about its patriots can be so blasé about a basic human right (good healthcare) is appalling.
So, yeah, I’m not bothering with a post this week.
It’s just depressing, and now that there’s an upcoming election in the UK, I’m focusing on that (I would post about it but it’s…too depressing).
That being said, I’m going to try and post something political every other week at least. One good thing that’s come out of it is that I am far more knowledgeable than I was before. I definitely think it’s good to keep up with everything, just in case something personally affects you. Or you can just turn into a news junkie like me 😛
Random aside: I watched the Teletubbies opening theme yesterday and I was CRYING. It was so bloody bizarre. And hilarious. Why do they have TVs on their screen? Who do they live in a weird isolated community? Why is the Sun a BABY? Why was this considered normal? LOL, I had so many questions, you don’t even know…What a throwback that was.
