Maybe/Fuck off, you idiot
BUT the popularity of this character has scared the producers/writers into making him way too "perfect" and with Glee's um...writing problems, that translates into sanctimonious. Why did Burt and Carol's wedding become all about Kurt? Why did Kurt make Finn out to be a homophobe when it was Kurt's creepy leering that made Finn understandably uncomfortable? Why did Kurt expect Karofsky to "come out" in front of the whole school when he hadn't even told his own family and friends yet? Sometimes Kurt is just too full of it, and that has nothing to do with him being effeminate.
And I'm sorry but when your boyfriend confesses that he was a victim of actual gay-bashing violence -- which totally trumps Kurt's bullying at the hands of Karfosky et al -- it's NOT OK to respond with, "This is perfect, now you can confront the bullies at my school!" I would have dumped him just for that.
The rest derives from the childish schmaltziness of mainstream American shows.
Reading this thread is really depressing sometimes.
Let's get back to Darren shall we? I want to hug him so bad.
The many faces of Darren
Thats my favorite darren look with the pink bow tie. so innocent and cute.
Darren Criss talks adorably about a girl he crushed on in 8th grade. God, could he be more charming and lovely? I bet that chick regrets dumping him now! (FFwd to the 45 second mark). I love how he takes up more than half the video LOL. And yes belamo, I would've done WAY more than hugged him!
Also, he's so nice to his fans, including his gay fans. Definitely not a tool.
datjacob, can we become JUB friends? We seem to have similar tastes LOL.
The dorky pink bowtie look may look cute because he IS cute. He is just wearing other people's character, the character of those who are attracted to his costume of dorkiness rather than being attracted to himself
And I guess the fact that this thread is getting so long counts for something.
I love this pic for some reason.
I don't know about momoda6 "emotional investiment", but in my case, I like that there is a soi sucessful dorky and lgbt-rights-supportive actor/singer out there, and I am glad to see other people that admire him as well, and hope that someday more and more will be like him. If that happens, I will have gotten something in return
Best "fake"/look-alike of Darren that I could find.
I don't expect anything out of it. That's just being picky and literal about the words I'm using. I mean, I could say something like 'his happiness makes me happy' but that feels kind of ridiculous.
I definitely understand what you mean, momoda6 I'm right there with you.
Same here momoda6!
So, basically you three live vicarious livings through Darren.
second: the implication would also be that their lives do exist, but are secondary compared to Darren's.
Since this thread is titled "Darren Criss" I'd rather just get back to talking about Darren Criss, rather than over-analyzing how people feel about him.
I think we're just saying that 99% of celebrity culture is contrived and backed by hundreds of staff members who retouch the photos, write the scripts and organise focus groups to ensure that the celebrity says the right things to the right target market. They also have to go out and find a replacements for when we get tired of the current celebrity and want someone fresh
Darren interview before he joined Glee
Well, I guess we have to see it over completely cynical lenses like Pat wants to.
^ Did he actually talk about aliens invading Earth? was he chewing khat or something?
I want him obscenely.
Darren Audition Video for Glee
his eye seen to change everytime I look at them o.O
Aw, these old videos make me miss his old hair.
I guess he looks more typically handsome with the short hair and it definitely looks good (when it isn't all shiny and slicked to the side like in Glee), but still. The curls were great.

I don't care how crazy it is I want to see thisIf you could write your own storyline for Blaine, no restrictions, what would you like to see your character do?
I would like to see him go back in time and hang out with dinosaurs, and then maybe befriend like a really cool triceratops. And of course, the dinosaurs in this universe would be friendly and they wouldn’t harm me, and they’d of course be able to speak English perfectly too. And also the character of Blaine would be incredibly proficient at wilderness skills and would be able to build a house similar to that of the Swiss Family Robinson. And magically there would be other humans there that I could befriend so I wouldn’t go crazy. And then I would just hang with them, and if and when I got bored with that by season four or five, I would take a time machine back to where we are now and then maybe go to space and, you know, have a monkey friend that I get to have intergalactic adventures with. Oh, and then I would discover the cure to cancer. And then I’d find a secret file somewhere in the Atlantic that would give me the power of flight.
