I’m up at 3 am reading Rainbow Rowell’s “Fangirl”.
Damn it, it got so good.
Can I just say? That that this second, this very second in the Day of the Doctor, any fear or doubt I might have had about Peter Capaldi being the next Doctor completely disappeared. He is the Doctor, no questions asked, no doubt about it. He will be great.
There aren’t words for how much I’m looking forward to this.
we saw eyebrows and heard his voice and i am so hooked already
This boy dressed up as Harry Potter and went around Penn Station looking for Platform 9 3/4.
The person in the fourth gif is watching his dreams come true in front of him
Well no wonder he couldn’t find the platform. He’s at the wrong bloody station!
Try Kings Cross Station kid :) Don’t you just love enthusiastic freshman
I HAVE TO SAY THIS……..
Darren was INVITED to join this cast and sign SONDHEIM!
Do you understand what a HUGE freaking deal that is???
If the name Sondheim does not strike fear in you - then you don’t know Sondheim very well.
I say this because Darren has gotten picked on for his vocals a lot and it irritates me - because he IS REALLY DAMN GOOD (especially if you listen back to his college years - his improvement is amazing - the tone quality and strength is something to commend him for)
Darren himself has often said he is an actor who can sing - but he is becoming a legit triple threat (not because he has a large dance background - but because what makes Darren an unstoppable force is he doesn’t allow his lack of formal training stop him from doing everything 125% at all times - his performance in all three areas in H2$ was brilliant!)
His performance of “something’s coming” for season three was beautiful - if you don’t understand how difficult that song is - again you are not listening and catching the subtleties and complexities of Sondheim.
It amazed me to read a story that said that during a break filming “Something’s coming” Darren asked one of the orchestra members if he could use her violin and sat down and played the music note for note. She said she was awed by his sight reading skills and abilities.
This is a man with a classily trained ear (thanks to the violin beginnings) - he has a strong sense of pitch and ability to hold harmonies - if you notice he is frequently the cast member in Glee that is harmonizing. He knows when he is off and he does his best to fix it - but his ability to move within a chord and understand his limitations is truly admirable and needs to be appreciated.
It really bothers me when people say he isn’t as good as Chris - Him and Chris have two totally different (although both equally amazing and gorgeous voices). There is a reason that their voices work so well together - it is because neither of them is trying to be the super star off of the other - they just sing and trust each other - it works - so stop comparing.
Darren has a vocal range that continues to grow - and it bothers me more than a little that people say he doesn’t. in “baby it’s cold outside” him and Chris flipped and Darren took the high notes at the end.
THIS IS FREAKING SONDHEIM!
His role in this documentary may not seem like much - but it really is
prompt: Blaine rants to Kurt over Skype about his twerking incident. Kurt wants to see a demonstration.
episode 5.05 reaction fic
"It was so embarrassing and I just know she’s going to show everyone at Glee tomorrow,” Blaine whines, collapsing back into his pillows and adjusting the laptop so Kurt can still see his face. “And I thought your dad walking in on us with the whipped cream that one time was bad enough.”
Kurt shudders at that particular memory. “We both made a pact to never bring that up again, Blaine. And what exactly did Tina do that’s got you so upset?” He narrows his eyes. “Do I need to talk to her again?”
"No, no, it’s just—" Blaine sighs, biting nervously at his lip before he meets Kurt’s eyes. "She caught me twerking, Kurt."
"Twerking, like…" Kurt moves his hand up and down in an approximation of a booty bouncing and Blaine nods solemnly. "Oh. That’s— Oh my. And you were doing this at school?”
I like how Kurt uses humor in these situations to break the tension and reassure Blaine.
This and double teamed, stuck in the suburbs, pixel perfect and fun house and you practically have my childhood
Remember when we saw Darren in a 30 second promo for Glee and lost our minds?
today three years ago a magical and beautiful relationship between two boys started and it went from
'hi can I ask you a question? I'm new here.' 'my name is blaine.' '..kurt.'
'kurt hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?' 'yeah, yeah.'
