Dean Winchester - An Anthology
 
When I started to put together another selection of You Tube videos I decided to get more specific this time. This gave me the opportunity to trawl through the ridiculous number of clips I have stored and   put them into some sort of order. The decision about the subject of the first collection was, of course, a foregone conclusion. There are literally thousands of clips on You Tube dedicated to the elder Winchester, many use the same tracks over and over, Candyman or Hero anyone? I have tried here to not go too far down into the shallow end of the pool, after all,   I would not want to be accused of objectifying!? I readily admit that there may be some here which are, to borrow a phrase from Jensen at last week`s convention in Rome, `dripping in cheddar` but I love cheese.    
 
The first clip is possible my favourite. It is one of the first fan videos I ever saw on You Tube. Apart from the undoubtedly beautiful images, the reason is the song. I had never heard it before but it would now always feature in any top 5 I compiled. The vidder is emmablack and the track is by Saving Jane, this is `Light of Grace`. 


 
The next one is a more recent find and a change of pace. It contains images from this season.  The vidder, BurntOutYesterdays, uses a wonderful track by Florence and The Machine   called `The Drumming Song` the clip is called `Couldn`t Wash The Echoes Out`.


 
When I began watching the show the connection I felt to Dean was immediate as I just loved his dedication to his family.  I think this study of Dean`s character demonstrates this perfectly , the vidder, tehjules uses clips from Seasons 1 and 2 and a song called `The Story` by Brandi Carlile. 


 
This clip features one of my all time favourite bands, Eels, their music can be strange, it is sometimes very beautiful and sometimes aggressive and hard, it has been utilised by quite a few people on You Tube to illustrate Supernatural clips,  this track is called `Souljacker` and in their description of their work the vidder, supernaturaldude 10,  calls it a `tribute to THE Rebel Dean Winchester` this is `22 miles of Hard Road`.


 
A  very  short clip here also using an Eels track and images from Live Free Twi Hard. This was made by LightNeverFades, the track is `Fresh Blood`. Until this episode I never got the Vampire thing at all, I do now! As I said it is a very short clip, but you can watch it more than once, I know I have.


 
The song in this video is one that has been used many times , it is by The Mathew Good Band and is called `Weapon`. This is my favourite version by elliepdowd who has made some very good supernatural videos and her work will appear here again, I think her editing here is wonderful.  


 
Now to lighten the mood with some major silliness, I just love this, especially the lyrics of the final verse ending with `My eyebrows ain`t plucked, there`s a gun in my truck` accompanied by the Dean Winchester method of sorting laundry. It`s by  winchesterus using a song by Brad Paisley – `Dean`s Still a Guy'.


 
This one needs a `tissues needed` warning.  It is beautiful, but only to be watched on very good days!  Made by nikkisg1 it uses a new song on me by `The Icarus Account` called `Mayday`. 


 
I have 2 reasons for loving this clip, not only does it feature one of my all time favourite songs, `In your eyes` by Peter Gabriel, but also some of the best images of Dean, not sure about the break in the song, but that`s just me being picky! It's another creation by SuperfreakSummer.


 
Here is a very different clip which might not be to everyone`s taste. I hated Dean`s assessment of himself at the end of `You can`t handle the truth` as `a killer` but this is the same theme here. It`s another clip  by elliepdowd and uses an amazing track by Jack Savoretti,  `The Killing Man`.


 
I much prefer to go down this route, I know Dean is not an angel, and definitely NOT Gabriel but I love the images and song here in this video by ash4897. The artist is Lamb and the song is `Gabriel`. The clip is called `His wings`,  it is beautifully edited using black and white images and is a real `big brother` video. 


 
Another wonderful study of Dean`s character here, covering the first 4 seasons. It is a song I really like  by a new artist for me,  Mans Zelmerlow, the track is  called `The Prayer` The vidder is deanschevyimpala and again I think the editing is wonderful.
 

 
Another recently discovered video made by SuperfreakSummer, I really like the use of black and white for all the flashbacks here, this    was obviously made after the end of the third season. The song is `They`ll never know` by Ross Copperman and it warrants another tissue alert!


 
This list would not be complete without this one! Made by mreagan22,   featuring Kelly Clarkson. `Beautiful Disaster`


 
A little quickie,  to finish on a positive (and adorable) note.


 
I think we need to cling onto this one since we haven't seen too much of that smile in the final few episodes of this season.

As you can probably guess this list could have been much, much, longer as I have enough for quite a few collections like this.  I hope you enjoyed some of these, which were your favourites?  I would love to hear any other suggestions

Thanks for these, Julie! You have a number here that I've never seen before and they are wonderful. I can never see too many Dean Winchester videos.

I hope you don't mind that I recommend one to you. It is one of my favorites, and it's a fun one, with lots of scenes of the cocky Dean that I love. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks again.

Hi Deborah
Thank you for your comment, believe me there is NO such thing as too many Dean Winchester videos ;-)
Also thanks so much for your recommendation, I love the fact we can share these here! I had never seen this one before and you are right, it is a lot of fun and another great antidote for recent events. How many times have we pondered on the fact that Dean (or Jensen) would make an amazing Indy!
Thanks again Ju

Which ones? You're kidding right? I loved them all, but 22 Miles of Road, & Couldn't Wash The Echoes were awesome, so was Dean's Still A Guy (LOL). Thanks for sharing these.

I'm so thrilled to see elliepdowd's Weapon video in the mix, because it's mine! That is, she made it for me by request because I love the song so much and it seemed so perfect for Dean. Isn't she an amazing vidder?!!

You are so lucky to have such a fantastic video dedicated to you!!
As I said, and I am sure you know, this song has been used so many times. It is understandable, as you say it is so pefect, but this version has always been my favourite. Please pass on my congratulations to the vidder her work, as you say. is amazing.

Julie, my sweet partner in crime, I am so late to this... forgive me. I was busy working and writing ( ;-) ), so that I wasn't able to take time to go through this great collection.

Some, of course, again were part of some damn conspiracy, but others were utterly beautiful...

Dean is such a wonderful creature, really. And this came straight from your heart.

If I may - how about a collection about my boy? :lol: I know, I'm greedy.

Love!!! Jas
Julie
# Julie 2011-05-27 04:41
Dear Jas,
Yes he is.
Yes it did.
Dont worry about being late, as you know I more than approve of the reason why.
The damn conspiracy thing is getting to be annoying :sad:
You really think I would neglect you and your boy :eek: I have already promised this is next on the list!
Love Ju

Got up at stupid oclock this morning to get a jump on the house work and study and made the mistake of first crusing The Winchester Family Website and discovering your page Julie.
I too 'love me some Dean' and have now spent my WHOLE morning in Dean heaven - and housework and study are still on the 'distant' horizon. Loved 22 Miles of Hard Road, cackled at Deans Still a Man. Had me a VERY good morning. Thanks Julie:P
