"The youth is no longer a youth, but a man, when the first of his dreams is dead." William Herbert Carruth, Ghosts of Dreams

Even if the quote for this week is serious, the fan video for the week isn't! The article for this week was easy because I've had this idea in my mind for a long time.
First, I really loved "About A Boy". Most of the characters and acting were phenomenal. Jared, Dylan Everett as young Dean, Kehli O'Byrne who played Tina and Madeleine Arthur that played Young Tina really stole the show. The episode was fun to watch and it was memorable. It is unfortunate that Adam Glass left to other adventures because he really used his heart for his writing. He told this idea to Jared between a few drinks and Jared loved it. It really shows!  Jared really was a mentor for Dylan when filming.

It also gave birth to something else. The song that we heard in the end was used at cons, videos and even in a Parody video by The Hillywood Show with altered lyrics. The Supernatural Parody already has almost six million views! It is so popular that a Gag Reel has been made from the material. Also the cast of Supernatural loved it and talked about it at Comic Con. Hillywood was also present in SDCC cosplaying Demon!Dean and Castiel and they visited the Wayward Cocktails event. They answered a lot of questions about the parody, Dean Winchester's video diary and the behind the scenes video. They are all worth watching! You can check out their Supernatural Q&A, the Js reactions to the parody, and all the Hillywood vids here:

Shake It Off by Taylor Swift


I stay out too late
Got nothing in my brain
That's what people say, mmm-mmm
That's what people say, mmm-mmm

I go on too many dates [chuckle]
But I can't make them stay
At least that's what people say, mmm-mmm
That's what people say, mmm-mmm

But I keep cruising
Can't stop, won't stop moving
It's like I got this music
In my mind
Saying, "It's gonna be alright."

'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I never miss a beat
I'm lightning on my feet
And that's what they don't see, mmm-mmm
That's what they don't see, mmm-mmm

I'm dancing on my own (dancing on my own)
I make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go)
And that's what they don't know, mmm-mmm
That's what they don't know, mmm-mmm

But I keep cruising
Can't stop, won't stop grooving
It's like I got this music
In my mind
Saying, "It's gonna be alright."

'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Hey, hey, hey
Just think while you've been getting down and out about the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats of the world,
You could've been getting down to this sick beat.

My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She's like "Oh, my god!" but I'm just gonna shake.
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won't you come on over, baby? We can shake, shake, shake

Yeah ohhh

'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate (haters gonna hate)
I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break (mmmm)
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake (and fake, and fake, and fake)
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off (you've got to),
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

The use of the song at the end of the episode was popular with some fans but I thought it was out of character for present day Dean to like the song. At a Con, Jensen talked about how he did not agree with the scene either, he described how he played the scene by not liking the song and was conjoled by Robert Singer into giving in to the scene as written. Sorry, I cannot provide a specific link. I do think the use of the song in the parody was great!

I think I saw a con video where he said he was asked back to film the scene but there was no music and he didn't know what song they would put on it. Anyway, I liked the scene because it was light and made me smile. Also the reaction Dean did and Sam's face. I took it that Dean wanted to pull Sam's leg so to speak and not close it. You know. Tease the little brother. ;)

A few times in the series Dean has reluctantly admitted to liking a song that wasn't totally cool. Remember when Jo played that song by REO Speedwagon's 'I Can't Fight This Feeling' on the jukebox which Dean scoffed at and then later sang in the car with some gusto, even though he was embarrassed about it. He also admitted that Bon Jovi rocked sometimes. And who could forget his All Out of Love (Air Supply) rendition. Always in the Impala (or the POS car) and Sam always appalled although he joined in on 'Wanted Dead or Alive'. One of Dean's dark secrets I think, he occasionally likes uncool songs. :)

I don't know. For me also he let his guard down on that moment. Dropped the macho act so to speak. It is just one new side of Dean that riches the character. (Even though he will never admit it!)
