So, I’ve watched Glee since the beginning. Well, since Emma called me after the first time FOX premiered the pilot and said “Did you know that Lea Michele is on a new TV show?!” and I said “Nooooo what is it?!” Then the love affair began. Like many original Glee fans, I’ve become much less loyal over the past two seasons. I no longer have viewing parties with my girlfriends and mark my calendar for the next new episode. But I DVR it and watch it when I get the chance. I still enjoy the story lines and musical numbers, I’m just not a Gleek anymore. And that’s perfectly fine.
One of the things that really keeps me tuning in is the Kurt-Blaine relationship. It’s just so sweet, I heart them. And I love love love Darren Criss. The kid is too talented, it’s ridiculous. If the tickets hadn’t been so expensive and my window been so small, I would’ve hauled my ass up to NYC to see him in “How to Succeed.” He’s just so talented. And so pretty.
I’ve been in love with Matt Bomer since I started watching White Collar, which is also a show that Emma made me watch. Hm. I see a pattern… The day I found out he was gay I almost cried. I was telling my “friend” Liz that she should watch the show, and the conversation that ensued went like this (it will also explain why I put the word friend in quotes, because friends don’t crush each others dreams like this):
Needless to say, I have never been the same. Though I still love him and am a loyal White Collar watcher, I know that I will never marry him, so that’s sad. Yes Hubbster, I know, I’m already married. But I wasn’t married at the time, so it was still an option. In my dreams…
Last week I was super excited to hear that two of my super-talented, small-screen crushes were going to play brothers on an episode Glee. And I was even more excited this morning when I caught a YouTube video of their duet (Seriously, how did people live before the internet? Before YouTube? Did they just wait until a TV episode was broadcast to see all of the fun, juicy bits? That sounds so boring). It’s a cover of “Somebody I Used to Know” by Gotye. Catch the video from the original song here. Though it’s kind of an off-the-beaten-path kind of a video, it’s a really good song. But I can’t help but love the cover even more because I want to be in a Darren Criss-Matt Bomer sandwich. Yep, that would be quite heavenly. Take a listen to the awesomeness 🙂
