If you have yet to see [livejournal.com profile] counteragent's new vid, 'Coin-Operated Boy'? Don't walk, RUN! I don't care if you hate SPN, have never seen the show, or whatever. It doesn't matter. This is like the most EPICALLY EPIC of all metarific vids EVER, that captures the comfort and insanity that is fandom in such an unflinchingly critical and pointed way, IT IS RIDICULOUS. My mind is still REELING from it 12 hours later. It will probably be EATING MY BRAIN for the rest of the week! That's how OMG, SHUT UP, ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? this vid is. NO, REALLY. SERIOUSLY.

On the flip side, my fannish heart just grew 100 sizes reading this new Sera Gamble Interview. Having such appreciation for a crew six seasons in is kinda unheard of for me, I'm not sure I know what to do with it. It's weird how the frustration depicted in the above vid goes hand in hand with appreciation with TPTB for me in this show. I think it has something do to with my disconnect between intellectually seeing something well thought out and working, and emotionally being denied what I want most as a fan based on what tv needs to be in order to keep going. If that makes any sense at all?

In LJ news, has anyone else been having problems with anons trashing old post? I've always kept anon posting on, because I've had non-LJers comment in score posts, asking questions and the like. But I've been having more and more problems with spam lately, and after some anon coming in and trashing my flisters' comments yesterday, I think that's my final straw. I can't tolerate my journal turning into some anon meme fan bashing. But my sincere apologies to those who got so baselessly attacked. That shit was so not cool.

That video is truly awesome, isn't it? I've seen several people reccing it within what seemed like minutes of it being posted! She broke the SPN vidder's 4th wall - superbly!!
You've been troubled with anonymous commenting - what is wrong with people?? If you want to say something rude you should back it up with at least one identity and take some responsibility for what ever opinion you are expressing. IMO. There - I've trashed them, whoever they are!

Yes, I think I got one of those anon trash comments but it's okay. It certainly wasn't your fault and you've always been great whenever we disagree on things. One of the reasons I value your feedback because we can love things from different angles and see different perspectives.

One of the nonnie comments was for me. I first thought -- not having been directly faced with a troll before -- that they had just misunderstood what I said because they didn't know the whole story. But then I saw that they had harassed others as well and were obviously trolls and I felt angry because randomly trolling someone's thoughtful meta post with anonymous bashing is seriously not cool. You really don't have to apologize for their behavior and I'm sorry that your post was used for something like that.

I read a despoilered version of one interview with Sera and she was really awesome in appreciating all the people working on the show. \o/

That vid certainly was amazing!

Also, that Sera interview was great. But that part about them thinking about whether to keep Sammy soulless for an entire season? *shudders* That would've killed me for sure.

intellectually seeing something well thought out and working, and emotionally being denied what I want most as a fan based on what tv needs to be in order to keep going.

I totally get what you mean, I've always felt that with SPN especially, I can be heartbroken about what happens (Abandon All Hope and Hammer of the Gods and the Roadhouse in AHBL I especially) but I can understand why they did it and I have to admire them for the way they all brought it together in the end. Swan Song, I think was a great example of this, emotionally that left me drained, and I don't think I could've handled it had it been the series finale but as storytelling? It did was very strong and it did round off the five seasons well.
