Man, I am finally home, sitting on my own bed with my own laptop. Hurray!! I am so effing exhausted, woke up with a sore throat and I already feel a fever being on its way *sigh*. Especially the train ride back from Vienna to my hometown was hell. But now I am finally home.

Therefore… I guess, I’ll get started on my con report :)



First of all, let me say… this was my last Asylum con. Unless they’ll get like JDM (which will never happen) I’ll never do another Asylum con if it is organized like this. If you follow this journal, you know that I have been to quite some cons in the past, but I have never witnessed such a level of being unorganised. Seriously. All this mess took quite some fun from the weekend. And it’s sad, cause you pay a hell of a lot money for all of this and you run around half the weekend just being all stressed and pissed. But I wont get into that now, b/c I guess you definitely want to hear about the awesomeness that were the boys and all the other guest first, don’t you?

I don’t even know where to start *lol* As always, I won’t go into detail about what was said on stage, cause there are already a million reports out there… and anything was twittered to you guys anyway… so, it’s all just my subjective opinion.

J2 Panel:
We queued at 6:30 am to get some decent seats. And we were really lucky cause we ended up in row 6 and had a great view to the stage.
Both boys were so effing tired from Friday… and yet they joked around and answered (almost) every question. Except for the stupid ones… *sigh* And trust me, there were quite some stupid questions all over the weekend!!
One thing that really pissed me off during the stage talk was, that ppl went up to the mic and were like “this question is for Jensen…” or “I have a question for Jensen…” DUDE You have both boys on stage! So go and fucking ask a question to the both of them. I don’t get it. I really, really don’t. It’s just rude.
And some questions weren’t even specific… they were just general questions which could have also been asked to both boys. But no, apparently they were just interested in Jensen’s answers. Gah. Morons!! It’s called “Jared and Jensen” panel for a reason!!
And there was one girl walking up to the mic and going all “Hey Jason, hi Jensen and hi… uuhmmm….” *rolls eyes*
Another thing I noticed during the stage talk was, that the boys were different somehow. I can’t pinpoint it, but during the whole panel I just felt like “something’s missing”. I think, compared to the other times I have seen J2 live on stage, there was not as much banter as usually. They didn’t play off each other like they usually do. (imho) So, that was a bit strange and unusual to see. Hmmm…

J2 Photo Op:
There is not much to tell. Friday was A MESS. Everything was delayed, we came straight from the airport to join the queues… and never left them until it was photo op time. So, as sweaty from travelling and queuing as we were , we were rushed to the pictures. And everything was like at a assembly line, I was not even able to say hi and bye.

Also, what is it with ppl going all “omg Jensen’s hair is sooo long” It is not THAT long. Sure it’s not as short as Dean’s hair, but after all the statements of “omg long hair” I expected something like Dawson’s Creek hair or some hairstyle like Jared!

Jared and Jensen autographs:
As usually, I don’t have much to report about the Jensen autograph… I got my Ten Inch Hero poster signed, I handed him the poster, he signed it, I said “thank you” he looked up and smiled… That was it. Very uneventful.

Jared on the other hand was different (as always lol) I brought my huge Friday the 13th poster to get signed and as I handed it to him he was like “oh yeah… alright” (you know, in his uber-hyper-cheery Jared tone lol ) and then he stared a few seconds at the poster, searched for the right spot and signed it. And I figured, what the hell, you have to say something. So, I said “It was awesome, I really enjoyed the movie” And he looked up, smiled at me and said “Awesome. Thank you for watching, It was so much fun to do” And, I know, I say this every time after I meet Jared, but what I really, really like about him is, that he gives you his full attention, he looks at you and he really seems interested in what you have to say. And he won’t stop looking at you or giving you his attention until you leave. And just then he moves on the the next person.
So, I thanked him again, and then moved along. (also… his smile? KILLS) *g*

I am really, really bummed that angels_cordy and I had no luck with getting the Coffee Lounge tickets! I would have LOVED to be there (probably like half of all the other ppl at the con lol ) But man, one day I really want to have the opportunity to chat with him more than just a few seconds. And I mean really CHAT not just say some standard statement he probably hears five hundred times during a convention.

So anyway…b/c I am already in full Jared mode… I have a NICE Jared story to tell!! And I think this moment will always be one of my most memorable con moments ever.
So… I had three photo ops with Jared. I bought two online (you remember the whole “OMG there are only 600 tickets, we need to get them” day? Well.. as it turned out, they sold quite a lot more tix at the con. And since they even had some tickets left (on Saturday evening) I bought another photo for Sunday.

Jared looks awesome on both Saturday pics. The first pic I took was a smile pic, and he looks adorable. As for the second one I asked him to give me evil!Sam. So he did his hand thingy and posed. And since I just didn’t want to stand there and smile dumbly at the camera I look at him in shock like “omg SAM was are you doing” I’m telling you, this pic turned out so awesome… it is so funny lol I am not sure if I want to post it though… cause let’s be honest, it would make the rounds on LJ and I am not sure if I really want that with my personal pic. Even the photographer was like “yeah, aright, this looks awesome.” lol

Okay… NOW for Sunday. As I walked up to Jared he was like “wait, wait… I need to freshen up” Also, the photographer just changed something on his camera. So, I was standing there, right beside Jared, waiting. He reached into his bag, pulled out a small deodorant spray aka cooling spray (or whatever that was… I don’t know how to describe it) And he turns to me and says “Sorry, I sweat. A LOT. I need to freshen up” and he slightly lifted his shirt at the front, reached with his hand under it and sprayed. AND smiled goofily. As he was done, he reached back and did the same with his back. And I was standing RIGHT THERE lol And as he sprayed he was playfully twitching in his chair, giggling and going all “uhhh uhhh.. that is cold” LOL
I DIED! I SERIOUSLY DIED RIGHT THERE IN THAT SPOT! And then, as he was all done, he turns back to me, smiles and says “all done” AND he smiles so brightly at me, his eyes sparkled. I know, this is creepy fangirl talk right now, but it was the perfect smile. So we both got into position again and the photographer says to me “try not to sniffle too much” LOL And I am cracking up and then he took the pic lol So, I look all “hihi omg…” in the pic. BUT Jared looks so utterly amazing. It is the perfect pic of him. He smiles brightly and fresh, eyes clear and sparkly, hair somehow in perfect shape (and if you are familiar with Jared’s hairdos that’s not always a given ROFL)
I am telling you, it is the perfect Jared pic. And I am so happy about it. And combined with that story… it was just a great moment lol
Leave it to Jared to freshen up during the photo ops while he’s sitting right there, with a fan, doing conversation *happy sigh*

Alright, this was part one of my report. I am just too exhausted to write more right now, but I just wanted to share some experiences with you.

More to come.

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 02:25 pm (UTC)
I never would have figured I would get THREE pics with him! But since they had quite some tickets left and no one wanted them... I just had to buy more! And it really paid off :D They also hat Jensen tix left... but well, I gladly spent my money on Jared :D

I might put some of the pics up on a special filter... and then I'll make sure to include you :)) Since you are such a huge Jared fan as well... it's only fair that you see these pics of him as well :)

Seriously, that sounds like a special you-and-Jared time! Very nice!

Love, Robin

If I had been in your shoes I probably would have said "Oh, I don't mind. Could you just do that again?" after he freshened himself up *lol*. And I totally would NOT have blushed. At all!

Awesome report! Loved it and now I'm even more jealous.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 02:41 pm (UTC)
I am like ten shades of red in the picture LOL So I might have blushed just THE TINIEST BIT LOL He totally should have done it on the pic or something :D

Awww... and don't be jealous *hugs*

Who am i going to go with next year if you're not going to Asylum anymore? Don't flunk one me :p
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 02:46 pm (UTC)

hahha... well, I am sure you will find tons of other fans to hang out with at the con LOL But right now, I can't imagine myself going back to the UK con.

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 02:48 pm (UTC)
Menschlich ist genau das richtige Wort. Ich mein, nichts gegen Jensen... aber er würde das auf keinen Fall machen. Doch für Jared ist es ganz normal... mann, ich sags dir, je öfters ich ihn irgendwo sehe, desto mehr schlägt mein Herzchen für ihn :D (und ja, ich bin grad wieder mal 14 Jahre alt lol )

Ich werd die photo ops wahrscheinlich in einen special filter packen und posten... und natürlich werd ich dich dann auch reinpacken :)

And your pic is just AWESOME *grin*
ANd I am jelous giggle but at least it was one of us who was next to him in that moment *loooool*
That makes it way better *loooooooooooooooooooool*

I am still dead tired!!!
And have to work and work and work *sob*
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 02:52 pm (UTC)
In everything Jared does, he shows us that he is equal... that he is "no star and lives on a higher level" but that we are all the same!! And that makes him even more likable :D

Why did you vanish so fast from the photo op room!? *sigh* You might have seen it as well... but wooosh you were gone SO FAST! lol Tell me, what did Jared do to you that you left so fast :-D :-D And more importantly, what did YOU do to him that he had to freshen up afterwards??? Tztztzt...
jarjenjarjen on June 2nd, 2009 07:25 pm (UTC)
That makes me so sad when fans are so insensitive to Jared. What makes me even sadder is I think Jared really feels it, and that's why he is so sensitive to not hurting his fan's feelings. He knows what it feels like to feel like you don't matter.

As for the other Jared stories...I love hearing them! That spray story is so funny...only Jared could get away with that. He is unique, but in the best way possible...how can you not love the guy..

Thank you so much for posting these!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 02:57 pm (UTC)
yeah, I totally get what you mean. Even if he laughs about it... or goes all "Okay I'll leave the stage" in a jokingly way... I think he's hurt about the insensibility of some fans! And it really saddens me, cause this man deserves nothing but lots of praise. Ppl should look what he gives back to the fandom... ALWAYS posing for the most silliest pics, attending every convention possible etc etc. And yet, some fans still behave like that at cons *sigh*

Jared really is unique in his own way... and I think that makes him even more special and likable. And most of all... he is "normal" as in... "I am not a star and therefore better than you" When you talk to him, it is on an equal level!! And that's something I appreciate SO MUCH about him.

Thank YOU for commenting!! :) I am glad you liked this little report

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 03:01 pm (UTC)
yeah, I think despite all the hectic and craziness over the weekend it was worth it in the end. Though, I still think I won't be going back to the UK for another Asylum con. :-/ I also don't think the boys will be back. You should have seen them on Sunday... they were so damn tired... :-/

I am curious about Vancouver... since they revamped the whole aks-questions-system the Qs might be balanced this time!

And yes ma'am. You will. :P With all the other embarrassing con pictures from past cons... lol

Besides the stress it was very good, wasn't it? I mean, Jared is the king of awesomeness!

Aww, I'm really curious about your pic, but you don't have to post it hun, I got your point.

"And he turns to me and says “Sorry, I sweat. A LOT. I need to freshen up” and he slightly lifted his shirt at the front, reached with his hand under it and sprayed. AND smiled goofily. As he was done, he reached back and did the same with his back.

ARE YOU SURE YOU CAME BACK TO LIFE????
OMG!!!

I'm waiting for more!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 03:03 pm (UTC)
LOL Yep. Jared is king! PERIOD! :-D There's no one else :D
I might post some of the pics in a special filter... if I do, I'll make sure to include you!

And NO... I think I am still DEAD just thinking about it LOL

Janine: jared perfectionjaninelearner on June 3rd, 2009 09:14 pm (UTC)
just wanted to let you in on what that spray was, basically Robin the photographer had a bad back and had this freezing muscle spray stuff, and it is REALLY cold. Anyway when Jared came in and was so hot I offered it to him as a joke to cool him down and that's what he used, it was so funny everytime he used it to see his face cos it really was freezing cold lol
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 6th, 2009 03:08 pm (UTC)
oh dear lord... thank you so much for telling me LOL I was so occupied with... well, other stuff... I didn't really register what it was. I mean, I SAW it but I have no recollection of what's its name was lol And yes... his face and then him going all "ahhhh.... brrrr" That was truly priceless!

I guess I was in the right place at the right time *g* And I have a pic with me going ten shades of red to prove it LOL

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on June 13th, 2009 01:30 pm (UTC)
he really is!! I mean not many stars would behave like that!! Most stars would just be embarrassed or something! And they would NEVER do that!

I love how Jared obviously puts himself on the same level with all the fans, not being "something better!!
ramoniciuramoniciu on June 28th, 2009 12:47 pm (UTC)
Don´t ask me how i ended up reading this entry of yours, but i´m glad i did.
I was smiling the whole time reading your report, especially about Jared and his "freshen up". LOL
Me, i had also a picture with him asking to do the "hand". We both are actually, and i really love that pic. He is so so awesome! At the autograph i had the same experience, Jensen did look at my poster and signed it. Jared on the other hand, he looked at it asked me about it and told me he likes it etc. And he was really looking you in the eyes and was all smily. :) You got to love that guy!
It´s too bad that you won´t post your photoops pictures, i bet they are amazing.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on August 20th, 2009 02:16 pm (UTC)
okay... first of all? I owe you a huge, HUGE apology for answering so damn late!!! *hides under her desk*

And secondly... thank you for reading and commenting!! I am glad you enjoyed my little report here. I am also happy to hear that also your picture with Jared turned out great!!!
And you know what, I am glad to see that it's not only me having these experiences with Jensen. I mean, I love the guy and everything, but every time I meet him, it is clear that all this convention stuff is not his thing and that Jared's way more interested in all the stuff than Jensen. So, for me as a Jared girl, it's of course awesome to see that he is so invested in things, and that it seems that he really cares about his fans and therefore tries to give something back with each and everyone!!! :-))

Uh and did I mention that I am sorry about answering so late? Usually I am not like this... but somehow this comment slipped through and then I forgot about it... until now! *sigh*
