Comic-Con 2013: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles take off with
the 'Supernatural' bag/cape
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles decided to model the Warner Bros. official Comic-Con backpack and cape -- the "Supernatural" themed one, of course. If you're heading down to San Diego this weekend for the convention, you can get your own bag with cape for free, though we doubt anyone will look as good with it on as these two demon hunters.
Production on Season 9 of the hit CW series has just started, though it will pause this weekend for the big "Supernatural" Comic-Con panel on Sunday (July 21). The series returns on October 15, 2013, airing on a new day: Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
Too freaking hysterical!! Kudos to Jensen and Jared for having fun with this and for giving us a priceless picture. :-)
Had a very unexpected conversation yesterday at the health food store. I work at the corporate office and it's our company retail store, so I know pretty much everyone who works there because I'm there all the time.
I finish my shopping and walk up to the register and one of the gals I know is there, with another gal who I don't know. Turns out she's new and being trained. So I hand her my employee discount card and as I do that, the gal who I do know snags my wrist. She's like, "Oh, who's that on your watch?"
I say, "It's Jensen Ackles, an actor that I like."
The new gal whips around and exclaims, "From Supernatural!"
I was like, "You know him?? And the show??" Because really, how often do you run into a fellow SPN fan in person?
She tells me, "I've been a fan of his since his soap opera days! He is SO hot."
LOL! Well that started it. Thank goodness there was no one behind me in line, because we talked about Jensen, SPN, Dark Angel and Smallville for a good 15 minutes. The other gal just kind of stared at us like, "What are you two talking about?" Ha!
I eventually had to leave but I told her that I was really going to enjoy coming to the store now so that we could gush over Jensen. :-)
What about you guys? Ever had a random run-in with a fellow SPN/Jensen/Jared fan?
So I finally sat down last night and really watched it...
First, now I know I'm old, because I didn't even understand what this whole Harlem Shake thing was even about. I had to Google it! Ahh...now I get it. Kinda...[scratches head]
Anyway, in the end who cares what this fad is about. What's important is - this was all Jensen's idea and he looks so freaking cute doing his funky little dance move at the beginning I can't stand it! I could watch that first 15 seconds on an endless loop.
I love it that so many of the cast and crew took part but bonus points to Osric, rolling around on the cold, wet ground in that body bag. Ha! And honorable mention to the giant teddy bear from Wishful Thinking. That was brilliant. :-)
While I give Guy Bee props for using an overhead crane to shoot this (I heard the helicopter was booked *g*) my only gripe is that it was too high up! I wanted a closer look at everyone!
Ok, maguie - your turn! What did YOU think? Oh, and all the rest of you, too. :-)
P.S. - speaking of Jensen, since we got our income tax refund the other day I decided to splurge and treat myself to a photo op ticket with him for the Chicago convention. Haven't had, or been able to afford one, with him since Vancouver 2009. I think I'm due for another hug. *g*

Man, how time flies! We had the BEST time in Texas. It was the first time we'd ever seen Jensen in person (in Navy dress whites of all things! Woot!) and he just nailed that performance. And the one the following night, too.
I remember waiting outside in the oppressive heat for him to come out the stage door and then nearly spontaneously combusting when he was suddenly standing in front of me. :-) I don't even know how I was able to speak to him! LOL!
I'm so glad I brought a photo for him to autograph because to this day it's the only thing where he signed my name, since Creation doesn't allow them to personalize anything.
I was able to take a short video of Jensen signing autographs. It was absolutely pitch dark at the stage door, so only when someone's camera flashes can you see him:
And here you can see the back of my very blonde head as I was standing there recording it. :-)
So yeah, what an amazing trip. I still have my fingers crossed that Jensen will return to the stage someday because everyone should have the opportunity to see how fabulous he is in live theater. :-)
There's just something about the way Jensen is looking at Jared that I love. Kinda cool that I happened to capture that moment without even trying!
Although my seat is much farther back than normal this year (I have Silver, not Gold) I'm still hoping to get some good video this weekend. I have a feeling the Mark Pellegrino/Sebastian Roche panel is going to be off the hook! LOL!
Talk to y'all Monday!
