"All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope." — Winston Churchill

 

After last season ended, it was time for the normal hiatus re-watch, which actually got a little more complicated when Supernatural was removed from Netflix. First they took seasons 1-6 away and a few weeks ago the last one was taken off. I don't know if they will ever return but I hope so. While I am writing this, I am just watching the end of season 8. After how "Alpha and Omega"ended, I have been pretty excited about next season. Also I have other exciting things ahead of me next year so everything is looking great.

Last year I spend a lot of time checking out fan works and other works people have done that are Supernatural related. We bought AKF and YANA shirts, and I supported a fan art book that had art about Supernatural from various artists, the Supernatural Fan Movie and the Kings of Con series.

I bought the first Christmas With Friends CD that Jason Manns did and supported the next one that was called Covers with Friends. I have never been as into in a show/band/movie as I am to Supernatural.

Christmaswithfriends

It is even weird to think that I am a fan now and I am so lucky that I have friends who I can talk to about the show and that my husband is a fan of the show too.

I haven't written fan video articles in a while so when I got the Covers With Friends CD and saw a fitting video online I really couldn't help myself. From cons we have seen and heard how well Jensen can sing but his "Simple Man" is just so great. The video focuses on Dean which is fitting as Jensen sings it. When I check out other videos there was also a video focusing on John Winchester, the boys and Bobby Singer. This one was the best of them all in my opinion. The CD has also many other great songs so if you don't have it yet maybe you should check it out.

One fan even made a video about the scene in 5.03 Free to Be You and Me where the original Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd was playing.

Simple Man by Jason Manns & Jensen Ackles

(originally by Lynyrd Skynyrd)

Well, mama told me, when I was young

Said sit beside me, my only son,

And listen closely to what I say

And if you do this, it'll help you some sunny day

Ah

Yeah, it will

Oh, take your time, don't live too fast

Troubles will come and they will pass

You'll find a woman and you'll find love

And don't forget that there is a someone up above

[Chorus:]

Be a simple kind of man

Be a something you love and understand

Baby, be a simple kind of man

Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can

(if you can)

Forget your lust from the rich man's gold

All that you need now is in your soul

And you can do this (oh, baby) if you try

All that I want from you, my son, is to be satisfied

[Chorus:]

And be a simple kind of man

Be a something that you love and understand

Baby, be a simple kind of man

Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can

(if you can)

Oh, don't you worry

You'll find yourself

Follow your heart

And nothing else

And you can do this (oh, baby) if you try

All that I want from you, my son, is to be satisfied

[Chorus:]

And be a simple kind of man

Be a something that you love and understand

So, baby, be a simple be a simple man

Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can
