So I participated in a secret santa over on [ profile] beyond_dapper. And today was a bad day. And I don't know what possessed me, but I made a video of myself opening my presents.

So yeah. That's me. =)

Putting up a wishlist for the Beyond Dapper Secret Santa. WOOT. If you're not the person who has my name, just scroll on by and ignore this entry, lol!

Christmas wishes! )

At the link, there's a spoiler for an upcoming Glee ep, but really I just wanted to show off the suggestive Klaine banter epic comment thread.

Spoilers ahoy! )

And I really can't do anything about it--I pay $4 a month for my satellite, it's provided by the apartment complex.

Can anyone direct me to a good, stable livestream of Glee? I managed to find an upload the same night it aired last week, but I'd like a reliable source--and to not be behind so I can be glexting with everyone else while it airs!

ETA: I found a 24-hour feed of the Fox channel, so yay, I can even watch House, which I had been planning to just watch on Hulu or whatever the next day/week/whatever. WOOT.

And from what I can tell, I am so, so in the minority on this--but.

Maybe I'm biased because I hated Lindsey from like episode two of The Glee Project, but I really don't think that performance ("Anything Goes/Anything You Can Do") was all that great. I mean, there were no real problems with it, it was executed flawlessly from a TECHNICAL standpoint, but it was Whatever. I can get Kurt and Rachel being overwhelmed by the lack of experience on their resumes compared to those kids, but the performance they witnessed was not as good/compelling as many, many, many of the things they've participated in as part of New Directions, either singly, together, or with the rest of the group. "Some People" may not be Kurt's greatest number ever, but I would say it was better than the NYADA kids' performance. Ditto something like "Telephone" or "Hit Me Baby One More Time" for Rachel, or this week's "You Can't Stop the Beat" for the whole group. Honestly I had a hard time finding a less-than-stellar group number at all, and I have a feeling this one's gonna grow on me--whereas "Anything Goes" is probably going to get skipped almost as often as "The Living Years."

Point being, while the Hummelberry scene in the car was very touching and I'm glad they're ridiculously good friends now ("You make me wanna be your boyfriend"!), I feel like it was much like Kurt's panic over Blaine transferring--only emotionally justified, and not actually necessary.

Also since other people have said it, I feel a bit less racist saying this--the "cocoa babies" line squicked me. Just. Ew. Creepy enough to talk about makin' babies in high school, it's just kind of doubly weird with the race thing thrown in there, and I don't care how confident he makes Mercedes feel, they've been dating for all of what? Three and a half months at the most? And it's possible that he's just the Sam rebound anyway? It'd be one thing to have a semi-serious conversation when the two of them were alone ("So, um, hey, do you want to have kids someday? If we're even still together, when we're WAY WAY older? Just kinda curious..."), but just randomly blurting it in the middle of the hall in front of Jacob Ben Israel's camera? I'm just kind of not okay with that.

(Also it reminded me of that episode of Family Guy when Lois was modeling and Cleveland said he wanted to make caramel-colored babies with her--that was intended to feel skeevy. So maybe that's influencing me a bit, but STILL.)

There are all kind of prettyful/funny Glee-related things on my Tumblr. =D

Also, Darren.

Blaine's transfer and all Klaine scenes were 100% PERFECT. Kurt totally acknowledged that Blaine didn't need to be transferring just for him and Blaine was all "nope, this is for me too." And they're stupidly adorable in love. And BOWTIES, and the HUG, and HOLDING HANDS IN THE LIMA BEAN.

It's Not Unusual? 'Scuse me, I might be pregnant now. Best New Directions audition OF ALL TIME? YES.

Santana getting booted? I...I am torn. But I'm hoping it leads to a redemption/coming out storyline for her.


Why the heck is Emma STILL a virgin??? WHY? I'm glad they're--dating? Living together? But GRRRRRAHGH. On the other hand, good job Mr. Schue, after the smackdown on Sugar, we might have to look into getting you a Man Card.

Quinn? Quinn looks awesome. I hope she rejoins Glee but maintains the badassery. And the HAIR. Minus the smoking, BAD Quinn! And lol Unholy Trinity. Maybe Santana will join the Skanks as well? =/

Lindsey's (from The Glee Project) character is as annoying as Lindsey herself. But I CANNOT WAIT to see the other three! Kind of glad we've got her more or less out of the way.

Sue is...Sue. She makes me want to rip my teeth out and I wouldn't change a thing about her ever.

Thanks, Finn, you having no clue what you want to do with your life is EXACTLY my headcanon, and exactly why I can't decide if you're good for Rachel or not. (I'm sure Kurt could be an awesome stepbrother and help you work on that; you were fairly awesome to him last year when he was having a hard time. After you got your head out of your ass anyway.)

Where was Karofsky? NGL, I want him to join Glee and then for it to give him the guts to come out, having the support of the rest of ND. Wasn't Becky supposed to join Glee, BTW? Ah, well, we just got started I suppose.

And I think I'll withhold comment on Mercedes' boyfriend for now. So far, I am...not enchanted. I was way more excited over the brief hint of Samcedes in the finale. He'll gain a lot of awesome points if he signs up, even if he kind of only doo-wops and shuffles along. =)

And GRR apparently I don't get Fox anymore. So I'll be watching online. >_

The only real tragedy here is that Chris (Kurt? Are they supposed to be in character?) didn't get a solo. SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR. But hopefully this means that Kurt's got a shot at doing pre-80's Bowie as some point this season because clearly the issue is not getting the rights to his music. =)

UNF DARREN. *repeat forever*

I'm the anon that posted here.

So I think I get the appeal of Tumblr--instead of blogging about something, if someone's done up a nice post already you can just share their post, and they get the credit for writing it, and everyone is happy.

I still think I probably need to avoid it for the most part. I spent something like five hours yesterday reading through "F**k Yeah Klaine!" and didn't even get all the way to the beginning, not even halfway. I'm trying to cut down on time wasted online; not add to it. Much.

ANYWAY, though, I found this and it almost made me cry. It's people like this that give me hope that maybe Burt (from Glee) was right about the new generation of people rising up; people that aren't homophobic, that are accepting, that don't have hatred inside. "Our son is going to be who he is, and it is our job to love him.  End of story." My heart.

It just occurred to me at work today that Single Ladies was NOT in the Glee movie. =(

Glee 3D

I'm pasting my reply comment from a previous entry:


I might actually see a movie in theaters a second time, for the first time ever.

Worth $10 JUST for the Warblers' three songs+Born This Way. Easily.

AND AND AND the 3D was DONE RIGHT and was AMAZING. OMG. I actually feel slightly compensated for not getting to meet Darren IRL because it was SO SO REAL LOOKING. OMG.

Only sad thing: they didn't really show the between-song skits. So no Klaine proposal. =(

Also: if you go, SIT THROUGH THE SLUSHIE CREDITS, THERE'S ANOTHER SONG. I was the only one that stayed, and so I'm sitting there in my good seat and all the other people that were down by the door were scrambling to find another seat real quick to watch it.


The whole conceit is that they really are in character whole time--the backstage interviews were Kurt, Rachel, and Mike (etc), not Chris, Lea, and Harry. To us it's Glee Live, to the people in the movie it's the New Directions/Warblers International Tour, intercut with some stories from fans of how Glee has changed their lives and what they've learned--which, honestly, was kinda Lifetime-movie-ish and I could've done without, because I would've much rather seen the skits. KLAINE PROPOSAL. WHY WHY WHY?

Also, I'm a bit sad--Kurt and Blaine don't sing together, unless you count the Big Group Numbers where they let Darren onstage. Kurt is not in the Warblers during their three songs.

Kurt's solo--I Want To Hold Your Hand--was really sweet. He kept pausing in the middle of it to say "Hi there!" to people in the front row. =)

What else, what else...? Oh, Holly Holiday was there and did Forget You, which makes me wonder--did Gwyneth Paltrow do the whole tour? Really? She didn't have a movie or anything? Or did she just pop in for a show or two and that was when they filmed?

Okay. Can't really think of anything else more specific than capslock and flailing, other than I'm definitely getting the DVD when it comes out.

Glee 3D at 9:30, wearing my Dalton uniform again. (This time with better hair since I won't be outside, sweating it curly in 100+ degrees.)

Sue Sylvester, because her one-liners are the crackiest on television. XD

Also Ben from Lost because it was so freaking hard to tell which side he was on at any given moment, and that made him all the scarier.

I put my "live album" together and put up a (crappy) piece of Klaine fanart on my website.

No, no, NO, it is NOT worth $25 for a PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT WITH BLACK TEXT, especially when you know you can duplicate it for less because it's basically Impact lolcat font, and doubly especially when you would have to be super-careful where you wear it.

But dammit I still kinda want a Born This Way-theme shirt that says LIKES KLAINE. Which doesn't even make sense because it's supposed to be something you're insecure about so mine would most accurately say "fat" but then again the whole not-being-able-to-wear-it-everywhere kinda points back to it being a good idea to go ahead and run with "Likes Klaine."

In other news, I've decided that as much as I love Glee, Ryan Murphy (the creator/producer/often writer/director) is kind of a dick--between this and the kind of crap he says on the Glee Project, I don't think he's really in his line of work because he loves telling good stories; it sounds more to me like he's in it for fame/money. =(

(Which...all the more reason for fanfic, right?)
