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. A family if and when you need it.

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.
Yep, it’s that time again. September 25, 2021 marks forty-five years of U2 and the fifth annual #InternationalDayOfU2 !
Takin’ It To The Streets, Edmonton Folk Fest Style!
Music soothes. Music heals. It educates, elucidates, captivates. It inspires. It can change the world. Losing live music hurt. So when my friend sent that invitation (To her neighbourhood Edmonton Folk Fest concert), I could feel my whole face instantly light up. I felt a huge weight, a COVID virus-shaped weight, an isolated, mask-wearing, physically-distanced, grocery shopping is the only outing-shaped weight, lifted off of my shoulders.
GISHing With Rock Gods
So, I sang Carry On My Wayward Son around a campfire with Kansas and Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles, and Jared Padalecki of Supernatural the other night. And before that, I watched God singing in his living room… How, you ask? GISH.
