Okay, let's see how this crossposting thing works.

Of all the fun things that went on in Australia this weekend, I found that Misha saying that SPN fans like him - and Castiel - because he's not female was very interesting. I pretty much am able to stay away from those parts of the fandom, only hearing about them peripherally, just like I try and avoid the girlfriend haters and the folks who constantly bitch about Every Little Thing the show does, the Let's Give Them a Bound Copy of Slash people and the OMG Jared and Jensen are perfect/assholes crowd.

But I found it very insightful of him to say that.

He obviously is fascinated by fandom.

On a different note, I've been thinking about Susan Boyle. While watching that made me all teary, and I watched it many times, I've also been thinking about it. I think what made me teary was the quality of her singing voice, and the sheer pluckiness of her personality. What bothered me was the assumption on everyone's part that just because she's not young and gorgeous meant that her voice being gorgeous was a big surprise. Like only pretty people can sing pretty. The fact that it was all such a big deal because a fairly unattractive person can sing so beautifully. I'd like to think that it's a big deal because people's expectations were confounded and we again learned not to judge a book by its cover, but I'm afraid that's not what it was really all about.

It's raining and 40 here. WHERE IS SPRING?

The Penguins are leading the Flyers, 2 games to 1. I love playoff hockey, and I need to find my Pens icon. I have no idea where I put it.
