Jensen Ackles article in SFX Magazine (but first I’d like to thank one of my good friends Jo Wren for posting this, all credit goes to her)
Q: How does it feel to start year ten with Dean as a demon?
J: We’re still getting our bearings and trying to figure out where we’re going to go, but the whole demon Dean storyline is fun and new and interesting and different.
Q: What’s different about this Dean?
J: Everybody’s asked if this will be a darker Dean, but it’s actually the opposite. It’s a lighter Dean. It’s a Dean without having the weight of the world on his shoulders and trying to fight the good fight, protect his brother and do the right thing. This Dean doesn’t give a shit at all. He’s going to have a good time. He’s going to drink as much as he wants and get into fights and hook up with babes. It’s the life Dean wished he could live but he can’t because he’s the good guy.
Q: Would you say the episodes are more comedic in tone?
J: It’s not comedic. It’s a personal choice I made with the character. He’s not funny. He doesn’t care to the point that it’s kind of scary.He’s just flippant about everything even when he hears his brother might be in some serious trouble. He’s like “I don’t care” which to me is scarier than if he was like [growls]
Okay but is no one gonna talk about this
Q: Dean once said that the life of a hunter ends sad or bloody. Do you see that end for Dean and Sam?
J: I think it will. What we’ve seen over the last nine seasons is that it does get really bloody and pretty sad. I think…..
I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.
Cotton is best. Always cotton
I feel the need to STRESS the necessity of socks. For the event AMOK through Random Acts this year, we went to DTLA to pass out donations. At one point we basically ran out and some of us broke off from the group to buy some more items. We ended up at a convenience store that had two boxes of cotton socks. We bought them and as we were walking one man asked us if we had socks. And we said “Yes.” and gave him a pair and then suddenly we were surrounded by individuals all asking for socks. We were out of socks in a few moments. I can say from personal experience that socks were the most important article of clothing that they wanted.
And as far as toiletries go, tampons. TAMPONS AND PADS. One woman was so excited, gracious, and thankful to receive tampons and pads, as it is a donation that seems to be overlooked. So please, of donations that could be given, while all articles of clothing and food and other necessities are more than welcome, socks and tampons and pads are largely needed.
