Heard the song during the commercial for History Channel’s trailer for their upcoming Bonnie & Clyde movie.
OH my god I can’t decide which version I like better this one or the one from Kill Bill!!!
Lawrence’s parents — her dad owned a construction business; the two now run a summer day camp-were initially less than thrilled with their daughter’s decision to become an actress.
When Lawrence was 14, she persuaded them to let her spend the summer in New York City going on auditions. As summer came to an end, her parents wanted her to come back home already. In the midst of their arguments, Lawrence happened to see a newspaper story about a boy from Kentucky starring in a new movie called Little Manhattan. “I was like, ‘Look, see? He’s from Kentucky and he made it’ I can do it too!’ And, weirdly, it helped them accept that this is what I wanted to do.”
That boy was Josh Hutcherson. In a nifty twist of fate, he’ll play Peeta, Lawrence’s favorite character from the Hunger Games trilogy.

my heart just got shreded
"Try plugging it in."
Three characters might be enough to sum up everything going through my head right now but I’m gotta do what I do and vomit over my keyboard hoping for feelings to come out with the rest of the gloop.
As I was filming this last scene, I could not help but feel a deep sadness for what was to come. It was inevitable after all, of course it was, Kevin Tran advanced placement of Neighbor Michigan was supposed to die a less than heroic death by the end of Supernatural’s 7th season. Sam and Dean would take a moment to sigh in regret and then move on as they should and we would have done the same. This show was supposed to be nothing to me… but it became everything.Osric Chau (x)
It’s weird to stop and think just how far Kevin has come since I first met him and how much he’s been able to accomplish in such a short time. He’s lost everything and everyone he’s ever known, forced to run and hide and at such a young age, you kinda wonder how else he was ever gonna rest in peace.
They said every prophet was supposed to have an archangel tethered to them for divine intervention should there be danger. Chuck had Raphael to protect him from Lilith but by the time Kevin had become the prophet, the arch angels were either dead or locked away. I like to think that the SPNFamily had been Kevin’s angels all along and the biggest reason for his survival. I thank you for that. These thoughts were swimming through my head as I lay there on the floor in darkness.
I had prosthetics on my eyes so I couldn’t see, nor could my eyes be seen. That was for the best because it was in those moments that I said my farewells. To the studio, the houseboat, the Men of Letters bunker where I spent so much time. To craft services, the caterers, and the candy tray, where I spent even more time. To the faces I’ve gotten so used to seeing over the last two years, I had to say “see ya later” because I just couldn’t bring myself to say goodbye, all the while hoping that the glue holding my eye pieces in place weren’t in jeopardy of dissolving.
It’s been an amazing ride and though I knew it was coming, it’s still this strange sensation that I can’t quite readily describe in this mindset. I’ve met so many wonderful people and I’ve made so many memories I’ll cherish for a lifetime.. but it’s that time where I say my thanks and take that last step into the fandom and let that world envelop me as I continue to support the show and the fans that have changed my life. Thank you for everything you’ve done, everything you’re doing, and everything you continue to do. Thank you.
And yes, I do think #KevinLives. In all of our hearts :)
I was reading bakasara’s post about the flirting in the bar scene in 9.09, and I realized something. Those moments that people are holding up as NO HOMO moments for Dean or Cas? They’re not really coming across as NO HOMO.
One of the axioms of good writing is SHOW, DON’T TELL. They’re telling us one thing, and showing us another, just like they did all through season 8.
Seriously, every single thing so far this season we’ve seen that could possibly be interpreted as establishing Dean or Cas as firmly heterosexual has been subverted.
- Cas has sex with April. But she turns out to be a Reaper using sex to lure Cas in, and then tortures and kills him.
- Dean is all dudebro cool about Cas getting laid. But the music that plays under that dialog is cheezy, over-the-top 80s buddy-cop-show music that is completely at odds with the other incidental music in the episode EXCEPT for the bit underscoring Dean lying his ass off about how Cas is not dead.
- Cas’ boss is clearly asking him for a date. But she’s really not, she’s looking for a babysitter.
- Dean helps Cas get ready for his date. But tells him to unbutton his shirt and then blatantly ogles him while he’s doing it.
- Dean plans to seduce a former porn star. But when she’s upset, he backs off until she makes a move, and then they are clearly playing roles from one of her movies instead of enjoying the moment as themselves.
- Dean and Cas talk about how hot April was and how nice, “up to the point where she started torturing” Cas. But they’re clearly making the incident into a joke and, as bakasara points out, their body language, like the scene where Dean is helping Cas get ready for the “date,” indicates flirting with each other.
Those scenes may look like very strong NO HOMO moments on paper, but the acting choices and the directing choices and the set decoration and the editorial choices are telling us we can’t trust what the words on the page are saying.
So which should you trust more? What somebody says, or what somebody does?
It’s just such a jarring change from the majority of S8, is my thing. If the tell-tell-tell is loud enough, it’s hard to believe the ‘show’ will ever actually become obvious enough to count as text the way that the ‘tell’ automatically does. I mean, even Charlie’s queerness went almost completely underground this season, so pretty much all we’ve had textually is a lot of skeevy het.
I feel like the show is a closeted queer dude who ran off over summer break to marry a woman he’s not attracted to but that his family loves and, sure, he’s obviously unhappy and is still having sex with his best friend, but every conversation he’s in these days, he brings up his wife and how they’ve already named their future kids.
I’m getting a really strong, “And yet, it moves,” vibe from this season, I swear to Chuck…
