annoying fandom

stupid and senseless: always keep fighting


First of all, Happy Christmas/Holidays/Can Anyone Be Bothered?, snarklings!

Onto the good stuff!

Recently I got a comment that claimed that the Supernatural fans are a family that comfort each other. They’re great people who are against bullying and they don’t offend anyone.

Perhaps that person can explain this 500+ word email that I received…

Name: UnimpressedAnon

Comment: OMG YOU NEED TO FUCK THE FUCK OFF. SHIT, I don’t think I have seen a more useless piece of garbage in my entire existence. I mean, who..what pathetic piece of shit would try start a blog for the sole purpose of badmouthing a television show.
I mean, seriously? Have people not told you this before, if you DON’T LIKE IT. STOP WATCHING IT. It’s that simple. Oh yeah, just try it, honey. God knows we don’t need any of you. The world doesn’t need any part of you. 
You have so much hatred and free useless time that you actually would take these thoughts and anger and use them against an actor or a show, and…I’m not even mad anymore. It’s just pathetic. And yeah..i should probably follow my own advice and leave it, but gosh, you have fucking compelled me to write this. ‘
SPN snark…stop encouraging this, you sick fuckup. This isn’t a huge global issue..like Donald Trump becoming President or the apparent rise in hate crimes, which I’m SURE don’t relate. BUt coming back to the topic on hand, People aren’t going to fall over and DIE because of this show, as far as I know, it’s a pretty good show ans the actors do a pretty damn good job of it, and this isn’t being said out of some blind devotion, or unyielding love. It’s the truth. And that’s my opinion and you have yours. There are things i don’t like either, know what the difference between you and me is, that I don’t have the stupidity or the audacity to actually start a hate blog about things I personally don’t like. So, guess what, suck it up and go do something positive with your life.(Some of the categories in your Other Stuff actually seem nice and sensible) and I don’t know for the life of me why those are included in the OTHER STUFF. You talk about distributing dignity, how is this, snarking, hating, getting together a community of haters to talk shit dignified or civil. IT’s not.
Do yourself a favour and just leave it, these actors/directors/writers do not care about your existence or rants. I doubt they even know you exist. They’re surrounded by love and care and they take that and they turn into good things, positive things. Campaigns,charities, Scavenger hunts. (Random Acts, Always Keep Fighting) 
But do you care about that, OH no ,because Jared’s twitter and Jensen’s fame and Misha’s popularity can only be used for trolling and stupid posts according to you. Look at them, actually look at them. They’ve made so much out of their lives, This particular show, infact has changed so many lives for the better. The entire SPN family has. How have you done that. How have your snark posts and hate comments changed any lives or transformed people. If they haven’t, It simply isn’t your place to talk shit about them.
Just help yourself, and stop encouraging this bullshit. And I obviously had a lot to say, you might not even read all of this . But if you do, I hope you can understand that this..THIS, isn’t just crap filled with sentences stating the perfection of the show fuelled by hormones or unwavering, blind love. Just advice.

I didn’t reply to UnimpressedAnon personally, but I have chosen to give them two things:

  • Their own stupid and senseless post.
  • The attention that Jared, Jensen and whoever will never give them.

snarkvestigation: delving into the minds of overzealous fans


image

This is a topic that always interests me because much like food packaging, fanbases generally come with this warning:

maycontainnuts2

I know that’s not very PC, but some of them are just not people that I ever want to be around. I often find myself wondering why they behave the way they do and what their true motives are. What are they trying to achieve? Occasionally someone pops up here and I’m reminded of the downright toxic fan behaviour that occurs on certain parts of the internet. Luckily, I can laugh off most of the comments posted here but I have witnessed some pretty outrageous things over the years. The question I’m always left with is why?

Many, many months ago, I received an interesting comment and I decided to probe further. Here I present my findings and conclusions. To be fair I will add what I said and just paraphrase all of the responses that I got. Or is that unfair? Whatever, for privacy’s sake, I will do it like that, lol!

I’m pleased to announce that SPN fans are still pleasant individuals…


Or not, because what I’m announcing is the opposite.

So, I was checking my emails from YouTube the other day – I do so every now and then because I have it filtered on account due to too many annoying notifications. I have a couple of clips from Supernatural uploaded, typically clips from or before season 3 and they tend to get more comments than any of my amazing videos that I took the time to put together for no real reason at all. My most popular video is one set to a Nickelback song with awful audio because I used Audacity to cut the song and screwed up somehow. It’s kind of fitting.

To get to the story, what happened was that I saw that someone had left a comment on one of these videos – something along the lines of, ‘[Name], shut the fuck up’ and I went onto the video page and was confused. I don’t really read the comments because…they’re all the same shit and it’s been, what…eight years? So I replied with a simple ‘??’ – perhaps I could actually asked a question but, ain’t nobody got time for that. They hit me back and told me to shut the fuck up too! I thought it was hilarious. I pointed out that I was genuinely wondering why they had just randomly told someone to shut the fuck up (without responding to them – hence why I even bothered replying) and their response was ‘Oh, I thought you had the same opinion. My bad’? (more…)

The Love Of Money

You Are Not Alone…in us finding new ways to make you part with your money


That’s probably what Jensen and Misha should have called their latest campaign. Instead, it is merely called You Are Not Alone.

wtf2

This one is probably the most ridiculous campaign yet. And before anyone says anything, yeah, it sounds like a decent enough idea. At first. *points below* (more…)

Dear Hannah…


…and anyone else who posts a comment like this. I can’t be bothered to reply to you people anymore, so you will be directed here.

Anyway.

When I received this in my inbox my initial reaction was [redacted]

Fuck you. Jared doesn’t have a big ego. He was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety and he started the Akf campaign and he saved my fuckin life. All he ever does is give and give so fuck you. You don’t know anything about Jared

Like

I was intending to just say something like, ‘Don’t go away angry, just go away’ but I thought that might be harsh. I could have gone with ‘Fuck you too!’ but I actually have manners, so. Instead, I read your comment again and was slightly confused because the post you commented was written BEFORE he publicly acknowledged his depression. You’ve already proven that you can read, so unless Jared has personally sent you here to fight his corner, I think the post kind of speaks for itself. It’s reactionary post to some foul shit that your Overlord and Master said before he suddenly had an epiphany and wanted to spread peace and happiness in the form of receipts. (more…)

Jared Padalecki and the evil golden arches


If you’re on a phone, you can see the video: here

So, let’s do a checklist (as opposed to receiving a check for eating McD’s. Sigh):

  • Using the kids as part of his Big Mac Pimpin’ – CHECK
  • Adequate information about whatever the hell he’s promoting? – NOPE
  • Adequate information about himself? – YEP!
  • Statement implying that he’s not just doing this for the money? CHECK. He owns his own business, y’all. I’m not hating on that, I just wouldn’t have put it in the clip if I wanted people to really go out and sample this All Day Breakfast thing, which doesn’t sound healthy but…
  • Some sort of clip hinting that with the right amount of exercise, we can all eat McDonald’s All Day menu and end up with chiseled abs and an excessive amount of beanies. – CHECK.
  • Another inexplicable explanation about how he flies back and forth by his own choosing – CHECK.

stupid and senseless: once a douchebag, always a ‘deuchebag’.


First things first…

I made that as a joke, but it’s now a very pleasant viewing experience. 😀

This isn’t really a specific post but more a round up of Jared’s douchey ways.

  • Talking about accidentally hurting his kid at cons. WHY? I really don’t understand. They’re not cute stories, or ‘lulz, aw, what a shame’, they’re just ridiculous. I think the general gist was:

I put my sons head through the wall

OKAY? AND? SHUT THE FUUUUUUCK UP.

The latest edition of “stupid and senseless”


I’m just going to use Jared’s words and refer to everything dumb that he does as Stupid and Senseless. 

Because his last airline rant wasn’t enough, he decided to throw yet another hissy fit and call a US airlines employee a jerk, and an “a-hole” before tweeting a picture of the guy.

This sounds like something that Supernatural fans would do.


So, I was bored in class this morning and I came across this article “Manchester United fans planning fly-past calling for Moyes to be sacked” Manchester United are an English football team that  I support,  who won the league last year and then declined rapidly this year (much to my chagrin). Supposedly fans are now revolting against the manager and in an attempt to force the board to sack him they want to FLY A PLANE PAST THE NEXT GAME.

….a plane.

An actual plane with a message attached.

These people want to  spend £1000 on this shit when they have the entire internet at their disposal. I’m not sure how a plane flying past would help voice their displeasure any more than chanting strongly worded songs at the game. The board aren’t really going to be all like, “Fuck, these fans wasted their own time and money to speak out against our decisions! WE MUST ACT NOW.” They’ll probably be smoking cigars and cracking the fuck up along with the rest of the country.

But anyway, my expectations of other people been raised. I now fully expect to hear about Supernatural fans protesting via plane whenever they put this show out of its misery. Several planes. And huge messages on lorries. SKYWRITING SHIA LABEOUF STYLE. Bus shelters. Face tattoos. Space beams. Spray painting their houses. Chest tattoos.

EVERYTHING.

I am counting on all of this happening. Don’t let me down fandom.

 

Dang.


So I watched this week’s Almost Human and it wasn’t great. I am not sure if that was the intended airing order of the episode but it just felt really flat. In all honesty, I did actually miss a huge chunk of it. I fell asleep and woke up and some guy with bandages on his face was having a Romeo/Juliet moment with some blind chick that he’d been stalking/talking to her online because…he wanted her or something, so maybe it was a good and I just don’t know it yet but

WHERE THE HELL WAS THE BUILD UP TOWARDS THE FINALE? Like, if this show ends on a cliffhanger and doesn’t ever comeback I’m going to destroy something. Possibly one of my Supernatural magazines. I will take a hammer to it. Or scissors. I’ll nail it to a wall and then attack it with scissors.

In other news, SPN recap will be posted over the weekend. It’ll probably be short (I’ve gone and jinxed it now!) because I had deadlines to meet etc, but we’ll see.

Vomitous comment of the week goes to the person on my Twitter waxing lyrically about how they can’t quit SPN because it’ll make them less crazy or something. Yawn. Come up with something new. Like, you can’t quit Supernatural because IT’S THE JUICE THAT KEEPS ALL OF YOUR ORGANS RUNNING. You need it to live!

I really need to stop adding random ‘Like’s to my sentences.
