WHAT IS THIS?: Collecting my tweets (@kupowark) from VegasCon 2013, mostly for my own archival purposes. I live-tweeted the panels I attended & will be posting those separately.
NOTE: I've cleaned up most of the hashtags for readability and edited typos in the original Tweets. Rarely, I will use square brackets () to add a missing word.
NAMES: I originally used actors' Twitter handles in my Tweets, but have replaced some of them with the actor names here.
LEGEND: RSJ = Richard Speight Jr.; EWB = Elastic Waste Band (alter egos for Louden Swain, Rob Benedict's band). "epi" = episode. "b/w" = between.
ETA: Adding in a few of my notes for things I didn't Tweet but vaguely remember happening.
START MISHA'S PANEL: The overlord comes onstage!
1133AM: Enthusiastic making out b/w Misha and RSJ, Misha and Rob. Of course!
1133AM: Misha: "What a well-behaved group you are! It's Mr. Collins."
1135AM: Misha: "I'm actually intimidated by this comfy chair." *sits* *applause* "What an easy crowd."
1137AM: @mishacollins Arm-wrestling on the podium to determine which side asks Qs first. Both fans incredibly nervous.
1138AM: @mishacollins Castiel cosplayer wins. "Angel power." other fan's b-day: present is to go 2nd!
1139AM: Fan did GISHWHES. What were Misha's thought processes "Those are strong words." for coming up w/items?
1140AM: Frankly, Misha was expecting a lot more nudity etc. in Vegas. What was her Q? She fought for the right to ask!
1140AM: Poor girl! She's a little in tears. Misha tells her to stand in the corner & think abt what she did. He's relentless!
1141AM: @mishacollins Insurance cost for GISHWHES not cheap. "'I would like $1mil.' OK, are we still dealing w/your issues?"
1142AM: Misha: "Items are abt cramming for me. Omg, this starts tmrw? & we had all yr to think abt it?"
1143AM: Misha: "do I look as small as I feel in this chair?" Audience: "Yes."
1144AM: Misha is distracted by a small child, whose name is very long. "Hi, Matt! Cutie."
1145AM: Misha would prefer Castiel stay rather static, reach a kind of mediocre plateau (instd of following Dean's lead)
1147AM: Misha: "So, a more selfish Cas." re: fan's wishes for Cas. "Poor guy. What a really miserable existence."
1149AM: Misha: "What the hell are you still doing up here, Becca? Go sit w/ Matt." #vegascon "It's actually rare that we're not frolicking."
1150AM: Potential for all the Cases to frolic with Misha? "Yeah, we could do a little pirouette here on stage."
1152AM: There's a pink Cas! Massive Castiel and Misha dance party on stage!
1153AM: Q: "Who is the person who inspired you?" is there a snake? Fan's mic or smthg is hissing/static-y.
NOTE: Misha was the one who asked if there was a snake.
1153AM: Misha was recently invited to Celebrity Ghost Stories, doesn't really have any? Fan only has GS ghost stories.
1154AM: Misha: What? Chad Lindberg has a ghost story? He *is* a ghost. His boots are 400 years old.
1155AM: Inspiration? Misha's mom, more than he realized; trying to emulate her as a parent way more than he thought he would.
1156AM: Misha's mom pushed him to not be constrained by normalcy. Didn't have many 'no's growing up, wants to say no to son a lot
NOTE: Wants to say "no" to West a lot, because he feels like it's his duty as a parent to discourage West's urges to, say, rip people's faces off.
1157AM: Ooh, Misha will be directing an episode of S9 (?), joked that he was made regular in S9 if he financed half the season.
1158AM: Cool for Misha to have opp to direct big show like SPN, maybe 20-30% of crew wants him to succeed, not passionately.
1159AM: What is he looking forward to? It being over. He's really scared of Jared. Wld be cool in episode if "Dean's little bro is dead"
1200PM: Have Dean flip through photos, all we see of Sam. Or animate the character (Sam)
1201PM: Transpo dpmt on set has copy of Misha's car [keys], if parked in Jared's line of sight, bad things happen. Move his car for him
1202PM: How is Misha gonna deal if Jared messes w/him while he's directing? Jared wouldn't do that, would he? No answer.
1204PM: Misha's zombie apocalypse team: Jim Beaver, Rob Benedict... & no one else. Rob will keep track of shit.
NOTE: ^ Rob walked onto stage to proclaim that he could keep track of shit, hence the next Tweet.
1204PM: "You can't say shit before midnight." to Rob Benedict, on microphone.
1206PM: Misha auctioning his script for Random Acts, comes w/Jensen "Ache-less" photo op tic, GISHWHES signed cheese calendar & book.
1207PM: All signed items, script is for last episode of S7. Shouting random #s not working. $500, $800, $1000,...fan's soul!
1207PM: Misha: "What's more valuable? A soul or a daughter?" "her soul is damaged"
1209PM: Wow, Misha's auction is at $3K, guy bid against himself for $3.5K goes to Marcos (?) for $3,001-$4K.
1210PM: YT video w/West was pt 1, Misha know what he's going to do for ep2? Yes, already filmed. West more talkative, gross, obstinate.
1211PM: Who wld Misha cosplay? "Cas dressing up as Dean." Cas sneaks into Dean's duffel, tries on his clothes. Really fun for Cas
1212PM: During scene, Misha opened duffel & started going thru toiletries, was fun, thinks there's more to do w/that.
1213PM: Upcoming Jensen outtake for the LARP episode, Jensen falls on his face in crowd scene.
1214PM: Misha going w/kids from Boys/Girls Club to NASCAR racing, he's freeloading. Fan's grandpa is driving
1215PM: "You have a cool grandfather? You would never think to look at you." Misha to fan w/coolish GP.
1216PM: If Misha could bring back any actor, Rob Benedict, no doubt. Not scared Misha, who cries all the time? Misha offended.
1217PM: "Richard Speight Jr, Rob Benedict, Matt Cohen, not good actors, y'know?" - Misha
1218PM: What power you give Cas? He has all powers! Oh, X-ray vision. "Cas, hey, focus, you're really out of it today."
1219PM: Cas would be creeping at the mall, leering, distracted from saving Dean from getting snuffed by a demon. @mishacollins
1220PM: Misha's public speaking course via torture is proven to work! Formerly shy fan is now Malcolm X, full of fire &brimstone!
1221PM: Rather be hunter or strung along by "twit" Naomi? Be kind to Naomi, Misha beseeches. "No." replies audience.
1222PM: "Have we seen 17? No? Let me explain what happens, 'cause it really pisses me off." - Misha
NOTE: ^ He was joking, then asked if people ever just come to cons and start spouting spoilers. Adam, the con guy, says, something along the lines of "Not if they want to live." Misha thinks it'd be a great way for cons to make money, b/c people would come to know things ahead of time...and then Adam's words register with him, and Misha goes, "Wait, did he just threaten to kill me?"
NOTE: Evidently, the take-away, though, is that something happens in S8E17 that pertains to the Naomi-Castiel storyline.
1222PM: Misha likes the Manchurian Candidate storyline, can't wait to see it play out.
1223PM: Misha was not in the Harlem Shake video. :( they didn't wait for him, aww.
1224PM: B camera crew in flamboyant drag during scene with guest star, nobody says anything, as if perfectly normal.
1225PM: In next scene, B camera's not filming. B cam operator leaning against railing w/pants arnd ankle & ball gag.
1226PM: Guest star thinks that's normal operation on set. Those were his only 2 scenes on the show. Oops?
1227PM: What's in Misha's pocket? A bugle (?) horn. Doesn't know what's in his pocket. A ring? The one ring? & $8K.
NOTE: He actually said flugelhorn. I just misheard him at the time.
1227PM: Misha can go from hard work like Karla to not-so-hard Castiel, how do you move on from that?
1229PM: Inspiration for Random Acts? Misha thinks from the fans. Harnessing the creativity & enthusiasm of the fans.
1231PM: Love how soft and serious Misha gets when talking abt Random Acts and the Haiti project.
1232PM: Is it the end of our time w/Misha? Chorus of "aw"s. Speed round of Qs.
1233PM: "Boxers or briefs, & show us!" Misha always wears orange. Has J2 underwear, one on each cheek, "SPN, we've got your back."
NOTE: Didn't catch if *he* had said J2 underwear, or if he had them made for the crew (which is what other ppl have said). To clarify, the underwear has Jensen's face on one cheek, and Jared's on the other.
1234PM: Most moving AoK: reuniting woman (sold into sex trade?? Couldn't hear) w/her daughter.
1235PM: Skinny guy in kale skirt w/axe in front of firetruck, fav submission for #GISHWHES this year.
1235PM: Has Misha considered voice acting? Yes, would like to dub self in Spanish, would have to learn Spanish first.
END OF MISHA'S PANEL: I missed a lot of things that other Tweeters got. I'll try to find links and edit post later to add them.
