    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…

    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…

    Would You Attend An All Women Supernatural Convention?

    Big convention runners like Creation and Australia’s Hub Productions know the value of Supernatural conventions. Having Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles in the line up, all but guarantees you’ll be sold out and every photo-op and autograph gone. What though, if NONE of the boys attended. Yes we are talking NONE. Fan run conventions are not a new concept, but let’s be honest, they’re rare and their success, even rarer. There are many stories of how ‘fan run’ conventions have cost the person/people running them, their life savings or even their houses. They almost always run at a loss because fans don’t have the resources like large organizations do. Even…
