The Damned and the Saved

Repeat Thursday....

I've downloaded last week's episode so that I can time-line it all nice and proper. I'm wondering though...you know how some people can get REALLY close up screen caps - like, they can zoom in and actually SEE the time on Sam's laptop without it being a huge blur? How do they do that?

Anyway, so, tonight I'm time-lining 5x06. I also wrote another section of "Dean's Completely Unnoticed Teenage Rebellion", which I'm really happy about. It's a hard thing to write, because first I've got to think of reasons why Dean would actually rebel, then I've got to think of the WAYS he would rebel, and then I've got to think of why they went completely unnoticed...plus, on top of all of that, I have to think of all the typical things normal teenagers do to rebel. It's a hard task, since I was never a normal teenager and Dean was even MORE not-normal than I was.

So far I've got two different sections, one of which is based on something I actually did that went completely unnoticed. I have another thing I did that went completely unnoticed, but it's more of a petty-revenge-against-family-member thing, and I'm not sure Dean would do that to either Sam or John, so I'm not sure it's usable.

The hard thing will be trying to figure out if I want Sam to put two and two together and realize what Dean did, or if I want it to forever remain a mystery...leave my readers trying to read between the lines to figure out where and how Dean was rebelling.

Susie downloaded Adventureland the other day and we finally got around to watching it.

It was good. It wasn't the stupid-comedy we were expecting, it was more your slice-of-life introspective exploration of the late 80s. I enjoyed it, but then, I tend to like movies like that (not necessarily set in the 80s, but the slice-of-life introspective thing). It had some excellent funny moments - the kind that don't feel forced, but just funny. I like those.

Anyway, Ryan Reynolds is amazingly attractive...even when he is playing a bit of douche. Seriously, it is not fair that all the hot guys in my country go to the states and marry people like Scarlett Johansson. Not that they would date me if they stayed, but they should, because I'm friggin' awesome. Though, really, I guess I shouldn't be complaining, because currently my country is holding both Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki hostage for 9 months out of every year...they aren't dating me either, but I don't think we're right for each other anyway. I'm not much of a dog person and I don't believe in Jesus. They are much better off with their girlfriends.

Kirsten Stewart was good too. I'm not sure I've ever seen her in anything before. I've never watched the Twilight movie. She did a good job of looking only vaguely attractive and not being completely sympathetic.

Sometimes I wish I smoked pot, because I think Adventureland would be a great movie to get high and watch. Yes, I think that sums up my review nicely. I might have gone on a tangent there in the middle, I apologize.
