We now see one of the photos from the TodayTix photo shoot on display.  So now, I'm not so sure if that photo shoot was or was not a hint of Darren returning to Broadway?

Love the message about looking at theater differently.  :happy face

From Darren Criss Army:

Thanks Mason, for capturing the poster!

Last week (for Round 1) of VOTING in Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star contest!  Keep voting guys!   I finally started a Twitter Account, but am using it solely to vote for Computer Games, at least for now. :happy face

So . . . a bit of excitement among the fandom today, yes?     :cheeky  

I'm glad Darren's not shy.   :amused   I hope he really is not that red (he didn't look that red in the BottleRock videos, did he?)

Anyway, I'm not gonna post that pic, because I'm afraid the Forumotion police will take down this little forum.    :lol

I'll post a few responses from folks who seem to feel great dismay about Darren getting a horrible sunburn.   Razz

From Darren Criss Army:

This was actually really funny. 



Note:  If you are confused about what is "covfefe," it's a reference to a tweet from Trump:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/05/31/president-trump-tweets-despite-the-constant-negative-press-covfefe-twitter-explodes/?utm_term=.09d4d34dfd5b    here are some hilarious suggested definitions of "covfefe" on Urban Dictionary:  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Covfefe&defid=11630863






Ha!  Andy and Tyler's responses.  :amused







Does anyone remember that time Darren was encouraging people to audition for The Glee Project with Robert Ulrich, and Darren said at Point 1:07 . . .

From dailydarrennews


charlenekaye: Can’t believe this May five years ago, I was deep in #APOCALYPTOUR with my @therealteamstarkid family, opening for them and playing gtr in their backing band. It was my first tour after releasing Animal Love and I’m so grateful to them for bringing me along. enough stories to tell for a lifetime in those weeks which I STILL tell regularly. It’s crazy to think of how much has happened since then - thanks everyone who’s stuck w me.  heart new music from me coming real soon  #dontpooponthebus

I'm sad to hear that dailydarrennews is saying goodbye to their tumblr.  I'm not sure, but it sounds like their tumblr still may be used to post larger photo sets, so there's that.  They did a fantastic job keeping up with Darren--and he is one difficult guy to keep up with--considering the many activities he is engaged in.   If you have a moment, please tweet or post thanks to dailydarrennews.   

In the meantime, they still will be using their twitter account to report on news about Darren.  I would like to encourage people who like to use tumblr to follow Darren, to support Darren Criss Army.  And there is the fan-run blog for Computer Games:  Computer Games Street Team .

From Darren Criss Army:




Convention Stories, Nuntius Californiensis (California Junior Classical League), Spring 2017


Note:  About California JCL (Junior Classical League):
"The California Junior Classical League was founded in 1955 to provide a forum for Latin students to compete in a wide range of academic, art, and athletic contests, both individually and by chapter."   Source:  https://www.facebook.com/pg/CAJCL/about/?ref=page_internal

I had heard that Darren studied Latin, so it's interesting for me to hear more about what he did in connection with that study.  :happy face





There has been quite a bit of media coverage over Darren's instagram.  You can google him and you will come across many articles. 

I find some of reaction comments to be funny.   You can find many of the reactions (as well as media coverage) here:  https://dcriss-archive.tumblr.com/tagged/acs-versace


I'll post some of the funny reaction comments:

So I will be going on vacation for part of next week.   This little forum has been rather quiet for a while, so I think I'll put it on vacation mode next week, so that I don't have to worry about it.   :happy face

I hope you'll have a great time on vacation. Where do you go ?

Round 2 of Macy's iHeartRadio "Rising Star" contest starts TODAY, June 12, at 6 am ET!   The top 5 finalists are battling it out for first place.  The prize is huge:  Opening the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas!!  Such a huge opportunity to get great visibility and exposure for Computer Games!  Please show your support for Darren and Chuck.  Please vote. 

You may vote by going to Macy's page:  http://macysrisingstar.iheartradio.com/

You also may vote by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, GooglePlus (you can vote by GooglePlus if you have a gmail email address), and iHeart. 

On Twitter, RETWEETING other folks' tweets for Computer Games is the fastest way to vote.  I can reach 300 retweets/votes in less than 15 minutes on my iphone.  **(I find the fastest way to retweet is to retweet the tweets of folks who do not include pictures/photos in their tweets, because I can scroll faster. ) 

Twitter will then force me to take a break for 2.5 hours and then I retweet another 300 times.  So by retweeting, I can vote at least 1,000 times a day, PLUS going to Macy's page and casting 50 votes per account that I have on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, GooglePlus, and iHeart.  Of course not everyone has the time to vote this often (and I won't have the time this particular week since I'm getting ready to go on vacation), but simply do what you feel comfortable to help Computer Games be the OPENING act for the iHeartRadio Music Festival.  :thank you

Also for tips as to how to maximize your voting, go to Computer Games Street Team's very helpful and detailed notes:  Computer Games Street Team
(Link:  https://computergamesst.tumblr.com/post/160552919122/macys-rising-star-voting-guide  )


**I'll make a list of folks who I like to retweet because they have a steady stream of tweets (with no photos/pics).  Because of their many tweets (with no pics/photos), I can accumulate a lot of retweets quite quickly.  Sometimes these folks start the day with tweets that contain pics/phots, but if I scroll down their twitter page, I can usually find more tweets with no pics which increases my rate/pace of retweeting.  :happy face



Folks I like to retweet:

https://twitter.com/memeydarren  (@memeydarren )


https://twitter.com/shi4shi4  (@shi4shi4 )


https://twitter.com/princewarbler  (@princewarbler )

https://twitter.com/warblerwax   ( @warblerwax )




Note:  You can retweet your own tweets--so easy, right?  Each retweet = 1 vote!   And I will retweet old tweets of others (even if I retweeted them before) as long as the retweet symbol/icon (the two arrows) indicates my retweet counts.  Happy voting!




P.S. I may not be post as much as I usually do on this forum this week, due to being on vacation and trying to vote.

Glen Powell is an actor.  he was in Scream Queens and Everybody Wants Some!! (with Blake Jenner).  Jono Matt worked on Sons of Anarchy and Glee, as an assistant to Paris Barclay.  This is an interesting grouping.  I wonder if they are friends with Darren.  I googled Jono and found out that he and Glen Powell are in talks to write the script for a movie about Captain Planet.  http://www.slashfilm.com/tag/jono-matt/  Let the speculation begin!  :amused


Zelda Williams is an actor, and the daughter of Robin Williams.  She is a childhood friend of Darren.  heart

Hi there! Can you please let people know that the ranking for the iHeart Rising Star contest is completely random - I contacted iHeart directly and they confirmed. So we may be in first, but we just as well may not. We really need to get voting, as our largest competition has people who have 75, 80, 100+ Google accounts that they are voting from, and are super persistent. I hope you can help spread the word, as I think we can win this thing, but we need everyone to help! Thank-you!! :happy face

Remember, if you have several twitter accounts, consider using TweetDeck!  You can use Tweetdeck for tweeting AND for REtweeting to maximize your numbers of tweets or retweets!

Computer Games Street Team wrote:
# 3:  TWEETDECK



Remember your saved accounts? They still have more use! If you have saved Twitter accounts available, there is a web application called Tweetdeck that allows you to be logged into multiple accounts at once and tweet/retweet from them simultaneously. I highly recommend that you use this application for mass voting efforts. It’s super easy to use as well!

First, go to tweetdeck.twitter.com and log into an account. I have my personal account as my main account and the many other accounts I run were added on for easy access.



Once you’ve added all your accounts to Tweetdeck, you can start tweeting, selecting certain ones or all of them:





You can even retweet from all the accounts simultaneously with little effort:



So put those saved accounts to good use and let’s rack up some votes!
