Pardon My Geekery

What the hell does that title mean?

A year ago I would have asked the same thing. Then one day in August last year I encountered a series of accounts online that were pretending to be clocks and a brand new bizarre world was revealed to me; GISHWHES world.

Who this world is ruled by is one…

I love this picture. And it isn’t just because they’re hugging. It’s because you can see how much Misha is trying to comfort him. Anybody that knows what happened at (JIBCON)knows how bad of a day Jensen was having. Misha literally came to the rescue when he realized his friend best friend was having trouble on stage. This really proves how close these two are, there’s no doubt that they love each other. It warms my heart to know how much they care. Misha knows how shy Jensen can be and he helped him. HE MADE SURE JENSEN WAS OKAY.
These two are amazing. I have nothing but respect and love for them both.

What happen to Jensen at jibcon? And wow those truly bluest blue eyes💙

Alright guys. I’ve been getting a lot of questions like this one^^ so here’s what happened:
Okay, so it started with Jensen answering a question about Castiel & Dean’s relationship:

Video Link (entire video)

He basically explains that Destiel isn’t the Destiel we all hope for. That it’s more of a brotherly/family thing.
Jensen always gets awkward when it comes to questions about Destiel, period. So when he said this a lot of fans got angry because of reasons (of course) lol. 
His convention went on and things started to get more and more awkward. Whether it be from the Destiel question alone or not.
But throughout his panel, which was only supposed to be him, he had to do stuff that he didn’t really want to. Like the sorting hat, reading the script, etc. You can tell how awkward he is on stage and at one point he almost refuses to do it:

Video Link (from beginning → around 3 minutes in)


Jensen does try hard to go with the flow and open the boxes and have fun for the fans, but it’s obvious how hard it is for him. Overall, he was just having a bad day. The people running the convention, or Misha himself, noticed how rough Jensen was acting on stage and runs out to help him.

Video Link (around 3:30 → 4:00)

THIS WAS ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE JENSEN’S PANEL.
So when Misha steps out suddenly, Jensen relaxes a bit and agrees to open the boxes. Misha helps him with the panel and releases the stress Jensen was having.That’s why Misha comes out and gives him a kiss on the cheek. Basically realizing that his friend was having a rough time, letting Jensen know what he’s there for him.
Another thing I would like to mention:
My friend went to JIBCON 2014 and had the chance to meet Jensen Ackles. It was near the end of the day and she was able to get his autograph. While he was signing it she told me that he seemed kind of upset. So she simply asked if he was okay. She told me that he looked up at her and smiled and said, “Yeah, it’s a good thing Misha helped me out, huh?” That’s when my friend looked back at the JIBCON videos and realized how rude some of the fans were being.
I didn’t realize this post would give me a lot of anon hate with people believing that I made this up? Or that I’m imagining things? Maybe I am? But with the video proof and what Jensen said to my friend, I don’t think I’m imagining their friendship being anything less than amazing. All I said originally was that their relationship is GOLDEN and UNBELIEVABLE.
So please guys, stop sending me hate.
I hope this helps, and be sure to check out the videos I linked :)

On Aug. 9th, 2014 a Ferguson, Missouri police officer racially profiled and fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown as the teen stood with his hands in the air. His family and community members are calling it an execution. Racially-motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement and represents the systemic police abuse against Black communities in Ferguson and Missouri at large. Enough is enough. We need widespread public pressure to ensure justice for Michael’s family and to prevent this type of indefensible violence in the future. Please join me in calling on federal and city officials to investigate, prosecute, and fire all officers involved by clicking here.

The Elopus has the logo!

This year was the Fourth Annual GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen). GISHWHES, for the uninitiated, is a yearly scavenger hunt created by Misha Collins, who plays Castiel on Supernatural. He decided to wield his power for good (though upon seeing the list, some might question the “good” part) to inspire people to find their…

I am so angry right now. Sad and angry. Robin Williams was one of those stars. There were not dozens of “Robin Williams” types. Just one. He’s gone and I am stunned and mad that he gave up the fight.

I can still remember the first time I saw him, battling “The Fonz” on Happy Days as Mork from…

RIP my friend. Truly one of the greatest highlights of my life to work with you and get to know you. You will be missed.
Condolences to friends, family and loved ones during this awful tragedy. 
Excuse me while I go and have a good cry.

Other than playful mocking my sartorial splendor, a number of folks have asked me to explain the context of this photograph. So here goes:After working together in Evolution, my friend David Duchovny offered me a role in House of D, his directorial debut. I immediately said yes, mostly because I couldn’t resist playing Erykah Badu’s pimp and hanging out with Robin Williams. On my first day of shooting Robin saw my outfit and went straight for the jugular. He didn’t gesture or even look at Duchovny. In a voice that sounded a lot like black guy #4 in any 70’s blaxploitation film he said, “you mean, this white man is paying you to degrade black women by literally acting like a short term relationship consultant aka pimp? How much is this cracker paying you to sell your soul, brutha?”My response, "He’s not paying me. I owe him five hundred dollars for letting me talk to you" That moment was captured in this photo. Like everyone who mourns his death, Robin Williams made my sides and cheeks hurt, made tears of joy stream down my face. I’m proud to say he even made me scream. In turn, one of the great moments of my life was making him laugh. We’re hardly even but it’s a small personal victory I will carry with me always along with the joy he gave me and so many others.No matter what anyone tells you, words and ideas can change the world.RIP O Captain, my captain. Until we meet again.
