    Melbourne Fans Say Good-Bye To Supernatural Season 12

    We arrived around 7:10PM, after fighting all the traffic on their way to the Saturday night football game. Late, we still managed to grab two of the most comfortable seats. It was strange to start with, not really knowing anyone, but we were bolstered by the ‘family’ atmosphere and the fact that people made an effort to say hello and be inclusive. The first part of the night was the Trivia Competition. Do you know the first and last name of the Woman in White and who do you think was the very first Winchester to die? If you said Constance Welch and John Winchester (think about it, John had…

    Homeless To Hopeful!

    Natalie Kruijen, has suffered from a range of mental health issues throughout her life and was once homeless. Through all of this, though, she found strength in her fandoms and in-particular, the Supernatural Fandom. She says it wasn’t until she became involved with the show and its die-hard fans, that she really understood what ‘family’ meant. After chatting with Natalie, I found her personal story and how all of this came about, inspiring. Divorced and with a young daughter, Natalie is open about her battle with depression. She says at her lowest, “she lost it” went to the top of her 16 story building where she blacked out and then woke up…

    Fund The Ivan Man and Help Bring Chad Lindberg’s Nephew Home!

    I had not heard about this until just now… So sad, how family break ups can do so much damage, especially to the most innocent. From a very personal point of view, I’ve always maintained that it is not in the best interest of a child/children to stay together for ‘the sake of the kids’. It can often be worse and detrimental to the child to see his or her parents fighting and/or very unhappy. It can teach that you have to ‘settle’ for what you’ve got and could even give the child an overwhelming sense of guilt. Having said all of that, I know that splitting up is never…

    Who You Gonna Fund? Ghostheads Of Course!

    When Ghostbusters first appeared on the big screen back in June of 1984 it was a supernatural comedy that became a super successful franchise for its creators, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. It grossed $295 million worldwide and was nominated for two Oscars. No mean feat for something that started out as a little project meant for Aykroyd and his Saturday Night Live buddy, John Belushi. Aykroyd’s fascination with the paranormal was its inspiration and with his comic genius, it was developed initially as them travelling through time and space battling big and scary monsters. Financial constraint and the death of Belushi, saw the original concepts and script change several…
