sunken ship

I was trying to sort of, be a voice of support to people who had become upset – yeah. Ironically, I mean, when I say crazy is (?), I don’t know. Is that really nice to say to somebody, “You’re not crazy.” I don’t know. I actually kind of don’t know, really, what was going on. All I know is I got an email from, oh (dismissive gesture). You know, Destiel, and Cas having sex, people on the show commenting on it, and… (Fan: Thank you.) Are those tears? Um… What did you guys think? Are you guys upset, happy, sad? (fans: Nooo) No to which? I asked three questions. Not upset? (Fans: NO yes) Yes upset? (Fans: NO) Sounds like a little confusion going on. (Fans shout out things) More sex. You know, all right. I don’t know what to say. Yeah, I want to talk about it, but I don’t really know what to say.
I do think that the relationship between Dean and Cas is a very intense, very important relationship. Whether that’s ever going to be consummated in sexual congress on broadcast television, I can’t speak to, but … from the perspective of my character, Dean is like the only, at times the only being in the universe, human, angel or otherwise, that he has any connection to, so it’s a very, you know, profound bond, as they say. I say. But… it is interesting from my perspective to see how so many of you are so emotionally invested in the show, relationships on the show. You would never, I mean, if you were on set with us, like, really, people care about this? Because… (fan: It’s about representation!) It’s about representation? Representation of…? (Fans: inaudible) Yes, I, okay, so – (fans: inaudible) It’s about representation of the LGBT community? Yeah, I can see how it will… I dunno. I think it’s also about interpretation, allowing the audience to work with the material. I mean it’s an interactive experience, where the audience is – each audience member experiences the show in a different way, and I think that we’re cognizant of that, I’m certainly cognizant of that, and very interested in keeping that open for interpretation. But, you know, different people watch the show for completely different (inaudible). Some people watch the show because they’re into, you know, classic cars. And some people watch the show because they, you know, read homoerotic subtext into it. And some people watch the show because they dig demons. And I, kind of, I personally want that to be as open a door as possible, and to have that be viable (?) imagination fodder for as many people as possible. And certainly, I’d say that I don’t want to disparage any group that has any given interpretation of the show or perspective on it, but at the same time, people don’t share that – even if the people like, you know, people who are on the show don’t all watch the show, people writing the show aren’t even writing from the same perspective. Like, everybody who’s involved in it has a different perspective. I think some writers, you know, some writers are layering in, you know, things that other writers aren’t. And some, you know, studio executives are watching it through one lens and some through another. Chad Kennedy – he is an awesome guy, you guys, the executive that got some pushback on his Twitter account. He just, he didn’t know how mean you guys are, that’s all. No, I’m kidding. He’s a really great, really intelligent, really (inaudible) person, who put his hand into the mouth of the lion. (Fans say inaudible things) Yeah, I think I can. It’s something that I find interesting. Anyway, for those of you who do think about it, know that it is something that we think about too.

This contained less information than I was led to believe from various paraphrasings. It’s a very political speech that really doesn’t say much beyond “there will be more subtext”. He mentions an “email”, which people have interpreted as something coming from higher-ups, but I think he’s just referring to the fan letter by Lisa who tweeted him a link to it.

This is very vague. I don’t think we should read too much into it, guys. But I’m glad he wanted to reassure us and talk openly and seriously about Destiel. I think he really understands now, certainly better than anyone else on the show, how important it is to us. He’s not joking about it anymore.

Austrian photographer Andreas Franke combines his two passions for the camera and scuba diving in his images of a ghostly sinking world. His digital montages combine the artist’s own photographs of sunken ships with carefully orchestrated sets, built above the surface at his studio. In his statement, Franke writes, “With my photographs of sunken shipwrecks, I want to pull the spectators into unreal and strange worlds. Mystified scenes of the past play within a fictional space. Dreamworlds you can get lost in or you can identify with. This creates a new and unexpected atmosphere. This work shows a lot of myself, since I am always on the lookout for stunning themes to create new images never seen before.”
