The Fort Worth Adventure - Pictures and Report - unlocked


As I want to post the pics in huge, not reduced in size, I'm gonna post thumbnails here. Just click on them for the full picture. All pictures have been stamped with a copyright sign. Sorry for that, but there are already pics sold on ebay, so... Also I have taken the original pictures and cut Jensen out to post here (as the stuff around him The Dick, police officers and fangirls is not interesting anyway), so the picture sizes do vary :-) Not photoshopped for color or anything at all.

Finally, I have a 3-year old, pretty limited digital camera, therefore the pics are not really highest of quality.

Feel free to snag but please respect the copyright and do not claim as your own. Credit if used in any way.


Shutting up now.


























Still alive?


Sunday, June 10, 2007


We ate at Uno's although I again, couldn't eat much, was still feeling sickish. Later on we called the hotel bus to get me to the Casa Manana and the girls back to the hotel.

Got my ticket fine and was really, really happy that I had brought a jacket because it was freezing cold in the lobby. Also was laughing my head off at the sign at the entrance: No smoking. No firearms on the premises. *laughs* Texas, everybody!

Met [info]deanlicious and a few other girls whose names I totally forgot because I started to feel nervous and we went to take our seats. I was on the right in the box and probably the first one to see Jensen when he ran past me to the stage *happy sigh*

The play was just fabulous. The did a very good work with the stage, quick re-buildings in the dark, very cool. I loved Jo, she was such an annoying bitch and did an amazing job at not sounding like Demi. Sam was adorable. Seriously, I wanted to hug him. Also, he had the best one liners besides Jensen and really got me laughing a lot.

Lou also did a great job with Jessep, he did not sound like Jack Nicholson at all but was still an evil badguy with an attitude, damn! Really, really impressive.

Jensen. Well, what can I say. I only saw a few of his faces during the second play because then I was seated in the middle, but he was just overwhelming. None of his acting was over the top or awkward as it can sometimes get. He was fully in character for the entire thing and even when he flubbed his lines, I knew that it was more a problem of stumbling over the lines more than forgetting the lines, something natural when you're on adrenalin. He was cocky and he did remind me of Dean in a few very little scenes, but most of the time he was Daniel Kaffee. The speed in which he delivered the lawyer jargon in court in the 2nd act was really mindblowing. All his scenes had charm and emotions, it was just mesmerizing to watch. I loved the steak-knife-set scene as well as the scene when he and Sam go apologize to Jo. When he has his arm around Sam's shoulder (who, btw. is really short) and says: "Wife and I thought we came to ask..." or something like that he wore the cutest of all fake smiles, I wanted to squeee so hard.

He worked really hard on stage, the scene where he comes in and changes from angry, to sad (yes, he cried actual tears) to triumphant was awesome. I really could watch him act all day, he makes it look natural and not like work at all. The scenes with Lou were brilliant, the two of them have a great respect for each other but played as if they'd want to rip each other's hearts out, mesmerizing and mindblowing, again.

Of course, one of the best scenes was the one on the baseballfield. I will never ever in my life forget the exchange between him and Jo: "I'm not very good at catch and play" - "Really, yeah well those" pointing at other players and making the most adorable sound, like when you stick your tongue out and blow, as you sometimes do with children. AWESOME! And he looks so damn hot with the cap and the shirt and the jeans and the bat....

Ok. *deep sigh* For the second play when I walked to my seat the first person that walked towards me was Mr. Alan Ackles. I think I was staring because all I could think was: I know that guy, who is that guy, he's tall... oh wait! I smiled at him and he smiled back :-) I then discovered that they sat beneath me just across the gangway, Mr. Ackles, Mrs. Mama Ackles, Mrs. Grandma Ackles and later on, Danneel. Damn she's pretty! Really, really fragile and delicate but beautiful. Also, she was very nice to all the fans there, kudos! Although she didn't really need to worry because seriously, she's gorgeous, hee.

The second time I saw the play I didn't actually saw everything because, yes, shame on me, I fell asleep at a few points. But remember, technically it started at 2am my time and wasn't finished until 5am. Anyway, I think I kicked the seat of the person in front of me several times when I woke up, esp. when Jensen threw the carton to the floor and yelled "Fuck you". He did get very emotional in the last few scenes when he was saying "goodbye" to the soldiers on trial, Sam and Jo, because he realised that the show and thus the entire thing would be over now. It was really cute to watch, he obviously had enjoyed his time very much (he bought all the staff "A few good men" shirts) and he was sad for leaving and for the experience to be over.

Well, after the first play we went to the stage door and I was just beat. It was 32°C outside, burning down on us and I didn't see a chance that they'd come out. [info]deanlicious challenged me to stand in line anyway and so I did. Sam was out first as were the actors who played the soldiers and everyone was really sweet with them. Finally, Lou and Jensen came out and it was announced that they would sign for 10 minutes. Everyone was queuing in front of Jensen so I went for Lou who was really sweet and flattered to see so many girls... and a few boys :-) He signed my booklet with my imported Swiss pen with a Swiss cross, hee. Some girl didn't have a pen so I gave her mine, then I moved over to where Jensen was signing. The Dick demanded that everyone who already had an autograph should move out of the way and everyone did, very civilized and nothing like during Asylum. So I moved closer, took a few pictures and then he took my booklet, signed it and gave it back. I said "Thank you very much" and moved out of the line.

He did say a few things while we were waiting. He was obviously very hot (the sun, people, the sun!) and kept complaining. One girl yelled: "You're getting soft for spending so much time up there in Vancouver" and he laughed. When a mild wind blew over us he yelled "The breeze, finally!"

One girl asked when they would start filming Supernaural and he answered "in a month".

That's about all I can remember. 

His family was very proud, esp. his dad. They waited outside in the car after the final performance but left when he didn't get out. Approx. at 11pm the police left and The Dick was packing stuff into Jensen's SUV. I heard another assistant ask who Danneel would be riding with and The Dick said "in the SUV". So when the Stage Door Cow appeared and told us that Jensen had already left, I was doubtful. But anyway, many of the fangirls left then except for us 7, I think we were 7, I don't really remember, I was close to falling asleep anyway. We were in the middle of taking pictures of each other and exchanging email addresses when The Dick called to tell us "he's really gone". We answered we'd just be sharing email details when the Stage Door Cow announced that this was the last warning (I seemed to have overheard the first one?!), some guy, Ross, would lock up the theater now and as this was private property (the street?!) we'd be trespassing and she'd get us arrested. Dude, relax! We apologized and tried to explain that we were just talking but she insisted, so we left towards the parking house. I am 99% sure that Jensen and Danneel came out afterwards, even though the police had already left, but when we rounded the parking house a few minutes later the SUV was gone, as was the other car The Dick had been standing at.

Anyway. Me and Mel were very tired so some really nice girls gave us a lift to the hotel where I fell asleep immediately.

The End.

spn - holy crap batman!

Hey, I met you! I was the passenger with floridapeaches who drove you and Mel back to the hotel on Sunday night. When I got to your part about Sunday night and the Stage Door Cow (HA!), I thought, "That sounds awfully familiar.."
It was nice meeting you!

I was going to ask you if you were on LJ, then I thought it might be weird if you weren't. Yeah, by Sunday night, I was crashed too. I'm sorry we didn't meet up sooner!

valkrys and Jensen

It's not that common in Switzerland, nobody knows LJ *laughs* But without it I guess I hadn't made it to the States. I only arrived on Saturday night, so I couldn't go to the play or the stage door earlier. Missed a lot of LJ girls, unfortunately, but I had to work that week *sigh* Let's hope Jensen decides to do some theater work again! Or we could meet up at the next Asylum, if he decides to come again :-)

If not, it's ok :)

GREAT photos, thanks for sharing.

I love your recap and how you took to calling the assistant, The Dick! That's awesome and so hysterical. And was it the younger guy? (He's in the black shirt behind Jensen in your photos) Or were you talking about the other, shorter guy?

Thanks, and you're welcome :-)

The Dick is not my invention, floridapeaches named him (I think) and it stuck because he acted kinda like a dick. Yeah, he's the one behind Jensen in the black shirt. I noticed him inside the theater where he was really stuck-up, so I was a little bit shocked to learn that he is Jensen's PA. I'd definitely do a tremendously better job, if I had the chance. Although the staring at Jensen could keep me working *grin*

OMG, I HATED that guy!!! Such a dick!! I noticed him both times we went (Opening Night and Wednesday) inside as well, and thought the same thing as you. He did seem really stuck up and I actually thought he was family/friend because I always saw him with Danneel. He was quite the dick come Wednesday night when he came around the building (we were doing the stage door thing, but since Jared was in attendance it seemed highly unlikely Jensen would come out) and was being all evasive and prickish about whether Jensen was coming out or not. He (didn't see him do it at the time) took Jensen's SUV and moved it up to the street so they could slip out. Rude!! Hee. I'm just glad to know I wasn't hating on some family member or friend!!

SPN clothing line

Exactly! He obviously has a God complex, for absolutely nothing. I wonder whether Jensen has employed him or his management, I'm guessing the management, I hope Jensen has a better feeling for people *sigh* His family is definitely cute and they were all very sweet, so don't worry, I doubt you would ever find a reason to hate on them, hee

Posted by: faninohio (faninohio)
Posted at: June 18th, 2007 03:55 pm (UTC)

I really hope he was employed by the theater myself and not associated with Jensen/his mgmt for the same reasons.

We saw his family quite a bit and they are too adorbable for words (Danneel seemed as such too), so thank goodness he's not a relative!!!

Chris might not have been sociable to the fans but he treated Jensen's parents and Danneel very well

Posted at: June 19th, 2007 01:35 pm (UTC)

Oh, for all my bitching (just a jellus fangirl!), that boy earned his pay/keep because he totally did what he was suppose to do, which for Jensen's sake, I'm glad.

he seemed really concerned about Jensen so that's what matters :)

You know me?

Nope, those are all mine, of course, I would never take someone else's pictures and post them as my own. But I think I saw a pic of yours on which I am, the only proof I have that I even was at the play, as I was all by myself I couldn't take any pictures with myself on them :-(

Posted at: June 19th, 2007 10:00 pm (UTC)

Hee, there are a lot of Sun matinee pics where I'm thinking "I know I was standing *right there*..." and considering I was right up front and a head taller than 90% of the girls there, you'd think I'd be more visible....

Re: the 'Jensen already left' ruse: Saturday night, IIRC, they sent out some kid with a jacket over his head - I can only assume we were supposed to think it was Jensen making a run for it. No one bit. The gal next to me shared a 'pffft, amateurs' glance and I remarked that if they were going to send out a decoy, he should at least be taller than me! (I'm 5'9", 5'11" in the heels, probably)

Jensen and Danneel are extremely pretty on tv, but even more so in person. and they are both sweet! but Jensen wins both categories :)

Jensen's dad was the first one to get a standing ovation Sat. night :).

They are gorgeous and really sweet, that's true. Hee. Jensen is just adorable, so pretty, talented and still down-to-earth, admirable!

He did? Awwww, that's so cute! His family was definitely impressed by his acting skills. I'm so happy for him that he could do this and show how terrific he is as an actor and what a good thing that it was so close to home so his family could be there with him.

definitely!
i admire them [Jensen esp.] so much more now! their generosity, gratitude, talent, prettiness ;)

i watched them a little bit during the play and they were so proud :).

Thanks for sharing, I keep kicking myself for not going home to TEXAS this year. I am glad those who got to go enjoyed it. Wish I had known about Jensen when I lived in Texas near dallas on the opposite end of the county from "our one of our fave Texas sons"

You're welcome :-) Yeah, it's always really difficult to know that a celebrity grew up in the same area but that there is no chance of knowing beforehand. There should be a future-celebrity detector *grin*

Jensen - Eyes

Okay...ich frag dich jetzt einfach. Nach langem hin-und-her Überlegen. Also - besteht irgendeine Möglichkeit, dass ich deine Fotos in unsere Galerie auf http://www.metallicar.net tun darf? Mit Wasserzeichen natürlich, und in der Galerie würde auch erwähnt werden, dass die von dir sind?

Ich find die Bilder total klasse (Neid! NEID! :-p ) und würde mich wie ein Schneekönig freuen, aber wenn dir das nicht recht ist versteh ich das vollkommen, kein Grund zur Panik. (Ehrlich. Aber wenigstens hab ich endlich gefragt - yay! *selber auf die Schulter klopf*)

Ich binsoooo neidisch. Ich hätte meinen rechten Arm dafür gegeben, nach Texas zu fliegen. "A Few Good Men" - wo ich noch vier Wochen vorher überlegt hatte, so ein AU zu schreiben. *heul* :-)

*grins* Mach ich einen solchen einschüchternden Eindruck? Das ist absolut kein Problem, natürlich kannst du die Bilder für die Seite haben. Solange mein copyright erwähnt ist habe ich keine Einwände :-)

Dankeschön. Ich bin in der Hitze schier gestorben, kann ich dir sagen. Ausserdem der Jet-lag und Jensen, das war eine ganz schlechte Kombination für meinen Kreislauf. Obwohl, vor Jensen in Ohnmacht zu fallen hätte vielleicht ganz lustig sein können *grins* Es war wirklich genial, seine schauspielerischen Fähigkeiten in "live" erleben zu dürfen und ich war hin und weg. Tolles Stück, natürlich auch. Was macht man nicht alles wenn man jung ist noch nicht all zu viele Verplichtungen hat? Man reist Jensen Ackles nach *grins*

Supernatural - Dean Reading Is Love

Mach ich einen solchen einschüchternden Eindruck?

Nein, aber ich fühle mich wahnsinnig schlecht, wenn ich jemanden nach solchen Sachen frage...vor allem, wenn es so einzigartige Privatfotos sind, weisst du? Aber yaaaaay! Ich freu mich so! Vielen, vielen Dank! Natürlich bleibt dein Copyright drauf - versteht sich jawohl von selbst! :-)

Ausserdem der Jet-lag und Jensen, das war eine ganz schlechte Kombination für meinen Kreislauf.

Kann ich mir vorstellen. Ich glaub, ich wäre zusammengeklappt :-)

Ach, wenn ich doch nur das Geld gehabt hätte ... *rumheul* ... aber dafür hab ich damals Ewan McGregor live in Guys & Dolls gesehen, und an diesen Gedanken klammere ich mich jetzt *nick*
