In this thread (also known as a "Topic,")--which I have called the "Darren Appreciation Thread," please select "Post Reply" when you post a message so that the different messages/posts follow each other in one thread.   Thank you!  :happy face

   

IMPORTANT NOTE:

ANNOUNCEMENT:  DISAPPEARING IMAGES

For anyone reading this forum, there is a problem that popped up in January 2017.  First, I noticed this forum's logo pic disappeared, and then I noticed many pics which I found on tumblr (mostly dailydarrennews), that were posted in this forum in the various threads, disappeared as well.  



Lin has been assisting me and she discovered that Tumblr changed the URL on the images that disappeared.  Lin has arrived at a fix that brings back the images.  She is truly a tech wizard!    THANK YOU SO MUCH, LIN!!    I appreciate your help so much!!   




UPDATE:

I managed to restore almost all of the missing images from all the threads of the forum.  

There were a few pics that I was not able to restore, primarily in this thread (the Darren Appreciation Thread:  General News about Darren for 2016), because the code of the images was unfamiliar to me (the code did not seem to be based on tumblr images).   If I was unable to restore images in your post, I will leave a note saying this in your post.

I apologize for the missing pics.    If you are a member, you may click on the links to see the images from their various sources.   If I missed some images, feel free to PM me, and I will try to see if I am able to restore the images. 

To current members:  If you see some of the images in your posts have disappeared, this is most likely why.  If you see I have edited any of your previous posts, it is because I am applying Lin's fix to your post, to restore the missing images in your post.

Darren went to see
Dear Evan Hansen with Jenna.  Darren's U of Michigan friends, Pasek and Paul wrote the music. 



Jennaushkowitz: Thanks @darrencriss for making me your date tonight to this superb new musical with the most incredibly talented cast and crew… the most gorgeous music from @benjpasek and @justinpaulmusic and a remarkable performance by @bensplatt who left everything he had on the floor of that stage. I love theatre. ❤️

So Darren's in Indonesia, attending the Da Man Anniversary Celebration.      He is their special guest.  I still remember their photo shoot early on when Darren first started on Glee.  Ah, memories!

Ron: “Hey Darren, oh my God sorry I’m shaking right now. I’m a fan. But let me begin the interview first before I ask you to sign for me,”
Darren: “Ow, thank you! It’s fine!”
For a split second I can’t believe this is actually happening. I’m interviewing Darren Criss! Glee star, Broadway actor, singer, composer, Emmy Awards winner! | Source

I cannot express how very relieved I am that DCN (darrencriss-news) is available again!!!    bow to you      :bravo     Thank goodness!   Alex's site is such an invaluable resource of Darren's past activities.  In the past, when I needed something, I would just search the tags.   But without DCN, . . .   :cry    confused  


I do feel bad that he is carrying the financial burden alone for maintaining the site/reserving the domain.    I sent in an "ask" to him if he would like us to send donations (maybe via PayPal?).   I would be happy to help, and I'm sure other Darren fans who could afford it would feel the same way.

Here's a nice pic of Darren.  I really like his outfit.    I'll put it in the photos (past) thread too.   I don't remember what year this was taken or for what occasion (fashion show attendance?).

OK NO YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SO SICK OF THIS BULLSHITHOW IS IT THAT EVERY TIME I THINK I’VE SEEN THIS MAN AT THE PEAK OF HIS ATTRACTIVENESS THAT THERE IS NO WAY HE CAN LOOK BETTER THAT ANOTHER GODDAMN PICTURE POPS UP WHERE HE LOOKS BETTER HOTTER SEXIER SCRUFFIER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN EVER SEEN BEFORE WHEN WILL HE STOP

From dailydarrennews:


An article in OC Register about The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl. 



"Concert Version of 'The Little Mermaid' will pack them in at the Hollywood Bowl"


"Darren Criss knew people adored the animated Disney musical 'The Little Mermaid,' but the announcement recently of a special live version at the Hollywood Bowl – with Criss as Prince Eric, the human love interest of the mermaid Ariel – really drove home that point, he says.


'Of all the things I’ve ever done, whether it was a show on Broadway or a tour, I have never in my short career had my email, phone and all my connective tissue to the outside world be so saturated and blown up as the day that thing got announced,' says the 29-year-old singer and actor known by many for his role as Blaine Anderson on 'Glee.'


'People love – LOVE – "The Little Mermaid." Big, bold letters, underlined.'


[…] Criss expressed similar sentiment for a movie that meant and still means so much to him he apologized several times for not being able to express himself as well as he wanted.


'I grow inarticulate in trying to make clear how big of a (bleepin’) deal that movie is to guys like me,' Criss says. 'I remember trying to write a bio for the program for this and it was hard for me to encapsulate how significant that movie is to my life without sounding hyperbolic or too cheeseball.'


How big a fan is Criss of 'Little Mermaid' and the Disney musicals? At college in Michigan he used to play Disney songs during brunch at a local cafe, and one day – well, let’s let him tell it.


'So of course I’m playing "Part Of Your World" (from "Little Mermaid") and Alan Menken just walks in,' Criss says. 'And part of me was just, "Oh, sorry, man, I’m so sorry," because you know I’m playing it in my own style.'


Menken apparently didn’t mind: 'He gave me a hundred dollar bill,' Criss says.


'Not only did it change the cultural landscape, but for my generation it’s basically our "Frozen,’'' he says. 'The one mutual friend we all have is the Little Mermaid.'"
OC Register




Looks like Darren is doing his best to stay in shape for Hedwig)? 

alliecohen: Love having @darrencriss in class– he always brings his “A” game– this is #post @barrysbootcamp #abs day!



Have some Darren from 2010 and Darren in 2016.   He looks good in both pics.  I like his hair more in the 2016 (but love his Harry Potter look in the 2010 pic  :amused ).

See the Cast of ‘Glee’ on Their First Red Carpet Vs. Now!
 It’s hard to believe that Glee’s been off the air for an entire year! And even harder to believe that it first premiered seven years ago!
Most of the cast walked their very first red carpet around the time the show debuted in 2009, but other’s were in the spotlight before the series started.




Darren and Mia are at the BottleRock Napa Valley Festival 2016 (in California).    They have a huge line up of music artists, new and legends of the past.    bottlerocknapavalley

And Darren sharing the fun at the festival with fans via social media. 

darrencriss: I felt it all over. Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest living artists ever. Period. What a joy to behold @bottlerocknapa







And Darren supporting Chad of A Great Big World, with this gorgeous song and video.    Did you know that Chad shared with the world that he has MS?   I wonder if this song is related to this song.   No way to know, but it's a beautiful song.  (Edit:  The message posted with the youtube video indicates it is related to Chad's refusal to just give up, MS or not.) 





Another "thank you" from Darren, this time to Da Man.  I love how considerate he is. 

darrencriss: Still catching back up on sleep from a great Jakarta/Bali trip. I have @daman_magazine to thank for the good times and a warped sleep cycle! #daman #daman9th shoutout to @mitchellmccormack and @ronaldliem for finally making it happen after all these years. Mia and I had a great time.


Nice to see Telly and Adam Shankman's support, and that Heather Morris is following Darren.

So Darren is selling a new T-shirt through Represent.com (the same site that we were able to get the "Not Alone" t-shirt).  

It's a cute shirt, with Darren's cute 16-year old face.  A portion of the proceeds will go to a good cause, Musicians On Call.

And one of the things I love about Darren, is how much he is comfortable with himself.  He simply embraces himself as he is.  He whole-hardheartedly embraces his inner dork (and in this case, his outer dork, as his face on a t-shirt).   Come on, he has to, since he has his sweetly funny 16-year old face (which he described as love-sick over Ariel) on a t-shirt for other people to wear.  It's both amusing and touching, especially given that part of the proceeds will go to a wonderful cause, Musicians On Call.  :thank you



From dailydarrennews:


@DarrenCriss: Going live on http://Facebook.com/darrencriss soon to take Disney requests and talk #thelittlemermiad




Buy a limited edition Darren Criss Tee on Represent.com


So I missed all the excitement of the Live Stream.  I snoozed, so I losed (and that's not a real word).    But thank goodness Darren made a video on his Facebook (and thank you dailydarrennews for posting it on Youtube!)!


He cracked me up at the beginning of the video, when he was talking about his photo on the t-shirt:

"This is a picture of me my sophomore year of high school . . .  This is me at like 15, 16 years old . . .  saying 'I'm in Love with a Teenage Mermaid,' because that's exactly the look on my face that I would have said that with, when I was 16, and it's still the same expression on my face when I'm basically almost 30."   ha!  giggle   :laughing

Update on the auction held by Charity Buzz.

  The auction closed at $2,250 (over the $1,500 estimated value).    The proceeds go to Musicians on Call.

Yea!   So wonderful that some more funds were earned for this worthy cause.  Also, congrats to the highest bidder, for the 2 free tickets to The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl, on June 6, AND for being able to meet Darren backstage that night!  I'm guessing you must be quite pleased.

From dailydarrennews,

Nice tweet from Mia, with very cute photo-comparison to Prince Eric and Ariel.  :amused 





And Darren posted an instagram with an attached photo that started a funny conversation with his pals, Tyler Oakley (love their friendship), Luke Edgemon (a Glee connection, and who has such a wonderful singing voice of his own, was on The Voice), cute and talented Kevin McHale and Justin Mikita (who happens to be the husband of Jesse Tyler Ferguson).

dailydarrennews captured this humorous exchange.

I meant to come back to this Glee-related news posted by dailydarrennews, but forgot to, due to all the videos and pics about The Little Mermaid rehearsals. 


After first being introduced to Kurt Hummel (played by Chris Colfer) as he was being thrown into a dumpster on the series premiere of Glee, the Fox show tackled gay issues big and small, bringing LGBT storylines to the forefront. In 2010, Kurt met the swoontastic (and equally out) Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss), causing the audience to cry “squee!” into their Tumblrs and Twitter accounts at the same time. Blaine and the Warblers serenaded Kurt with Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” and the Glee cast earned its best single sales week for a download with the song’s release (214,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan).

So I'm going to see The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl tonight.  So I won't be updating much on this forum before the show tonight at 8 pm.   I'll post my views on tonight's show (although you can probably guess I'm gonna love every minute of it!) tomorrow.    I hope everyone is enjoying all the videos from last night!    When you have a huge outdoor arena filled with lots of Darren fans, you are gonna get a lot of videos.  :amused

I see quite a few guests.  Please register!   I would love to talk with all of you.  If you know me on the GF, I'm pretty friendly.  All fans of Darren are welcome here.   My philosophy is to be inclusive and to have a warm, safe place to talk about Darren.

Hillary Clinton was in Sacramento, CA on Sunday, campaigning for the election occurring this coming Tuesday June 7.    She was at Sacramento City College.

From dailydarrencriss:

Darren expressed his support of Hillary today in Sacramento, and urged everyone to make sure to vote and to urge others they know to vote, noting how scary a time it is (although he didn't mention Trump himself, at least in these videos).

I'm so impressed with Darren that he continues to be involved in politics and in social issues.  It's evident he really cares.

I can't embed but I'll link to the videos.  Thank you dailydarrennews for capturing these videos.

Klaine in the news:

Blaine and Kurt, Glee.
Their couple name is so perfect–Klaine! So short and sweet and wonderful–that they kind of had to end up together. Oh also they were an inspiration to plenty of struggling teenagers across the country. But that name though! | TV’s 50 Greatest Couples Ever



Darren being his usual, supportive self and congratulating people on their Drama Desk Awards (held last night, Sunday).





Christopher Fitzgerald starred in Girl Most Likely with Darren, but Darren has been a fan of Christopher's work for a while.  Christopher won "Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical" for his work in Waitress. 

Cynthia Erivo won "Outstanding Actress in a Musical" for The Color Purple

And Darren's U of Michigan friends Pasek and Paul won "Outstanding Lyrics" for Dear Evan Hansen

A photo of Darren accompanying this fan at the Tony Awards 2015.  :happy face

@AmyTrigg: Year ago yesterday since @DarrenCriss and I went on a date to some awards show. #itwasntadate #orwasit



Going even further back in time with this photo.  Glee Live was in 2011.   He hasn't aged much at all, has he? 

@nikolezane: @DarrenCriss 5 years ago you were in traffic in the car in front of me on the way to Glee Live in Philly. best day.

Omg! Darren and Loki in that first photo upthread! The height difference! Maybe they were talking about the possibility of Darren appearing in Thor Ragnarokkk. Darren would totally kick ass as a Viking God. He could play Balder.


That Da Man video....
:love He's so beautiful!

ha!  But Tom is what, 6'2"?   Anyone standing next to him would look short by comparison.   :amused  (I would look like a child next to Tom.  I'm very short.)

YES!  Good idea, dusty!   Let's have Darren in Thor!   I have no idea who Balder is, but I trust your judgment.    Dusty is good about keeping updated on entertainment news.  thumbs up

He's looking good.  :happy face
