Surrender To Hope: Bono at the Beacon Theatre and U2:UV Ticket Madness
And you watch Bono, and he watches you. Because Bono does that. He makes eye contact. And he holds it. So you get caught in the blue through pink gaze. You get the feeling connecting – human to human – is vital for him.
When in Rome: finding Rock Gods and Supernatural Deities at JIB11
This convention truly was spectacular. Not just all the music and going-ons of the panels, but that sense of family and community that makes the SPNfamily unique. There is an instant familiarity and openness amongst the participants of events like these – built upon shared interests of the show, for sure, but after 15 years of that show, and 12 or so of the convention circuit, even if it’s your first convention, or you only just started watching the show and diving a bit into the fandom – there are welcoming arms if you want them.

The Josh Ramsay Show
And that feeling of ten people in the audience, that intimacy; somehow, at the same time, those 600-700 people that felt like ten, sound like a stadium when we sang. I think we missed Josh. And music. And concerts.
Phoenix Rising: A Tale of a Supernatural Convention in Vegas
Being in spaces again with about a thousand people, sharing this love of a tv show and its actors and musicians in person, shed that two year old skin of lockdowns, anxiety, unknowns, obsession with numbers of cases, deaths, and hospital beds and brought a renewal of life – a phoenix bursting through its pandemic ashes.
