SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

A Crazy Dream and Mail

Last night I dreamed that Lance and JC came over to watch DWTS with me. And JC was very cranky because I didn't have anything diet to drink. And he kept making all these bratty demands and I kept getting more and more frustrated. Finally, I ended up stamping my feet and screaming "NO! I DON'T KNOW ANY ACTUAL HOOKERS."

JC wanted me to get him hookers!!!!

My brain is weird.

I also have gotten a bunch of LJ mail lately, that I want to acknowledge because I looooove mail!

storydivagirl sent me a super-cool FNL something and I can't WAIT until the weekend so I can pay total attention to it! Thank you so much lovely lady!

I got a very sweet postcard form rei_c. It totally validates me that other people like to send state postcards too!

My TabbyBear sent me a sweet card too. 27 days to Reno, wooooooooo! Thank you why_me_why_not!

And lastly, cinnamon_sins sent me an awesome care package with a dark chocolate (my fave!) espresso candy bar! MMMMM. Aaaanndddd? She also sent those AirHead sour belt-things that Jared chows down on in the Day-In-The-Life DVD. SO FUN!!! I'm snacking like Jared! Yaaaaaay! Thank you honey!

Happy Wednesday y'all.

SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

Everybody Loves a Clown and "Shambala" by Three Dog Night

A couple of days ago, wikkidpixie sent me an email with a song. She's heard it on a commercial or something and it piqued her interest. She researched it a bit and found out it had played in an SPN episode, thus why she sent it to me.

The song is "Shambala" by Three Dog Night and it plays in Everybody Loves a Clown.

The music used in Supernatural often is meaningful and as this is an important scene, it's no different. The Shambala wiki page says:

The lyrics refer to a situation where kindness and cooperation are universal, joy and good fortune abound, and psychological burdens are lifted. While the lyrics include the refrain "in the halls of Shambala", much of the song actually refers to "the road to Shambala", perhaps alluding to the idea of Shambala not as a physical place but as a metaphor for the spiritual path one might follow.

That is so flat-out SIGNIFICANT for the place Sam and Dean are in during this scene that it just...it makes my heart ACHE.

Here's the (edited) version of the TWOP recap of that scene:

And then? They go to the Roadhouse for the very first time.

Twelve screencaps from the scene where the song plays:

Lyrics to the song (think about Sam and Dean when you read them):

This is what makes this show good to me. THIS RIGHT HERE. When all the layers just come together to form a big, impactful, significant, meaningful storyline. I haven't seen this episode in months and months and as soon as I remembered, I was just INSTANTLY transported back to that place and to how that scene made me feel the very first time I saw it.

I'm ready now. I'm ready for the final four episodes of Season Two. I'm ready to feel this emotional attachment to My Boys again. I have been reminded that Sam and Dean are READY to follow their path...physically, emotionally and spiritually. To maybe, eventually, find a place of peace.

I'm ready for the heartache that's coming. Bring it on Kripke. BRING THE PAIN because I am ready.
