RETWEETING is faster than tweeting.  If you tweet the tweets of the folks below with the necessary phrases (#RisingStar) PLUS (either Computer Games or #ComputerGames or @weplaycomputers ), you could RETWEET 300 votes in 15 mins!  Fast & easy votes!  After 300 votes, Twitter will force you to take a break for 2.5 hours, then RETWEET another 300 votes, etc.


Here is the list of folks whose tweets I like to RETWEET because they provide a steady stream of tweets (with no pics/photos, which allows me to scroll faster):


Folks I like to RETWEET (the top 2 @memeydarren and @shi4shi4 are superstars; they have been tweeting a massive amount of tweets steadily since Day 1.  I discovered @masterofmymind2 and others later, but they also have been great with their many, many tweets for days and days, for Computer Games):

From Darren Criss Army:





Darren will appear in Word Theater’s In the Cosmos at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on

WordTheatre® takes you on a wild ride through the universe. From creation myths to the Big Bang to alien life forms, a constellation of actors will bring to life the story of the Cosmos in the words of the great poets, astronomers, comics, mythologists, musicians, philosophers, scientists, cosmological physicists, astronauts, and mystics. Accompanied by rousing renditions of classical and contemporary music, we will contemplate our galaxy with such visionaries as David Bowie, Elton John, Monty Python, Copernicus, Galileo, Einstein, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Hawking, and Diane Ackerman. Featuring musical artists Inna Faliks, Starr Parodi, Jonathan Sacks, Amy Keys, Red Mandala, Lizzie Ball, and many more.


In the Cosmos: Where We Come From, Where We Are, And Where We Are Going is a benefit for WITS: WordTheatre® in the Schools.


Throughout the year, the WITS Squad regularly visits Title 1 middle and high schools. Celebrity actors bring curriculum-relevant literature to life for underprivileged youth. We also offer themed educational programming to inspire empathy, curiosity, and conversation.


Additionally, for this event we are raising funds to provide transportation and tickets for 400 Title 1 high school students.

Go to the above link, to buy tickets!  In addition to seeing Darren (our little science nerd) in this play, you get to see many other fantastic actors.  The tickets are pretty reasonably priced, and it's a benefit performance too!  (For WordTheatre in the Schools, or WITS.  Proceeds will send 400 Title 1 high school students to this performance!).   Note:  Title 1  "provides financial assistance to schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards."  Come on, guys:  Good cause, Darren is in it, and many other amazing actors (including Oscar winning J.K. Simmons, and Emmy-winning Sterling Brown--who I love so much) are in it as well.

I thought I'll place this in this thread.  It's pure speculation on my part, but it's fun to guess.

It started with this quote from Ryan Murphy in his latest interview:

From Darren Criss Army and dcriss-archive:



I posted this yesterday in the Versace thread:

EmanuelLevy wrote:
American Crime Story: Versace--Interview with Ryan Murphy

June 25, 2017

Edgar Ramirez stars as the openly gay designer, who was tragically gunned down on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion in 1997 by serial killer Andrew Cunanan, played by Darren Criss.

The limited series chronicles the bizarre murder and the manhunt for Cunanan, who targeted gay men and was responsible for five murders.

Casting Darren Criss as Cunanan

Ryan Murphy: I didn’t have to convince him at all. What I like to do is give people opportunities sometimes that they would never have. And Darren is obviously a brilliant singer and a performer and a showman and did “Glee” and has been on Broadway. When Brad Simpson and Nina Jacobson and I were first talking about this idea of doing Versace as sort of the O.J. follow-up, which was around two years ago, I immediately called Darren. Because to me he was the only one for that part. And I just said, I’m thinking about doing this, would you be interested. And he said, well yes, very much so because it’s such a great part. And I said, ok I’ll get the contracts drawn. And then it took two years because you have to write it and you have to get it green-lit. But he was always the only person I had in mind for it because I knew that he would push himself because he was so hungry to prove himself in a different way. And it’s a truly insane dramatic part. And he really wanted to go there. So he was the only person we talked to. He hadn’t heard from me and then he was getting ready to do another show and the day it was announced that Versace was up, he was, oh shit what am I going to do. But we all worked it out so he was able to get out and commit pretty much a year to it. And he was great. Brad and Nina went to see him in “Hedwig” and he knew they were in the audience so of course he came out and sat on Brad’s lap and did the whole showbiz thing.




Ok. . . what other show was Darren getting ready to do?!   Ryan, don't leave us hanging!  :cry broken heart 

Was it Royalties?   I personally think it was Royalties because: 
(1)  Lin and I were chatting about this, and I think it is significant.  (BTW everyone, Lin has a fantastic memory--she remembers all Darren-related info!)  Darren had posted on instagram on September 18, 2016, his haircut.   I think the haircut is for TV, since he did something very similiar when he was cast on Glee.   It could be for Versace, but  I think the haircut is probably not for Versace since Versace is limited to 9 (8?) episodes.

Here is Lin's previous post (that she posted on September 18, 2016), about Darren posting his haircut on his instagram on September 18, 2016:


@Lin wrote:


Of course, this reminded me of a very important haircut that happened about six years ago...


Except when I went to look up the old tweets, I noticed that this didn't just happen ABOUT six years ago, it happened EXACTLY six years ago to the date and even posted within the same hour. Did he do that on purpose?  :cry

@DarrenCriss (September 18, 2010)
@DarrenCriss (September 18, 2010)


Even Darren's use of alliteration--"dapperDarren" on September 18, 2010-- and then "clean cut Criss" on September 18, 2016 are parallels, as well as what Lin said, the two postings of his two haircuts happening not just on the same date of September 18, but being posted within the same hour . . . I doubt it's all coincidence.


(2)  Darren is very careful about not announcing his projects until the last minute, when he's very sure they will get done.  I don't think he would have mentioned (at the SF concert on November 30, 2016, at Feinstein's at the Nikko) about selling the pilot script unless he knew that the project would proceed further (note:  he also tweeted about the project too):



@DarrenCriss
Link to THR article
November 7, 2016







From DarrenCrissArmy:

@DarrenCriss

(3)  Jonathan Gabay (Vice President of comedy development and programming), and the writer Patrick Carlyle tweeted about the project, and they (along with writer Allyn Rachel, as well as Gail Berman, Joe Earley and Dani Gorin of The Jackal Group, which is a production group) all went to see Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch in  L.A. (November 2016)
(4)  Darren mentioned Royalties during an interview in May 2017, suggesting that this project may still be in development (I mean, he didn't say the project was over). 


Darren mentioned Royalties during an interview focusing primarily on Computer Games.  It sounds like it still may be a possibility (maybe not for this Fall, but maybe for the following season)?   I had wondered if because Darren had a 4-5 month commitment to film Versace, then that meant Royalties could not be developed for this season since Darren would be unavailable.

DARREN AND CHUCK CRISS OF COMPUTER GAMES ON MAKING MUSIC AS BROTHERS AND EMBRACING CHEESY DANCE MUSIC.

05/11/17

What other projects have you guys been working on? Chuck, have you been working on any other musical projects since Freelance Whales? Darren, have you been working on any TV projects since Glee?

[. . . ]

Darren: Before Glee, my main squeeze was my group Starkid. Basically, out of college, my big break was an internet comedy group that changed my life. Starkid was my musical, creative outlet. That's when I realized I could be a songwriter for a living, which is why I eventually ended up writing songs for Glee. The last songs I wrote was right when I joined Glee. That was the last Billboard record I had. Anyway, that was my outlet for writing songs. Right after Glee, I have a singer-songwriter EP in the can, which I'm waiting to put out later this year. I was originally going to put out the singer-songwriter EP at the same time I put out the Computer Games EP. After being absent for a while, I didn't want to confuse fans or people who weren't familiar with myself, to focus on one thing at a time. I have a TV pilot I've been in development with for a while. There's a lot percolating. That's also why it was important to get Computer Games out, because it's only three songs. We thought it was cool to put out the songs, tour and let it incubate before we put out a full-length. We're using the "figuring it out as we go" model.

All just my speculation, but that's my position.  :happy face  Anyone want to weigh in on this topic?

And some pics that dcriss-archive posted when Darren was in SF, doing Hedwig and the Angry Inch:

Aw, with some of his former elementary school teachers at Stuart Hall:

This is so sweet.  Some of his Stuart Hall/elementary school (middle school?) teachers went to see him in Hedwig in SF.  heart :love

Why so mysterious and secretive, Darren?  confused Question 

Let the speculation begin! 

I'm guessing it's Computer Games related-because it's on his Youtube channel (as well as on his twitter and instagram).  If it was related to a TV show or a Broadway show, not sure if he would put it on his Youtube channel along with his other social media.  Hey, I'm just guessing.  I don't know

He is using a pic with a beard, not the clean-faced look that he had to do due to filming Versace.  The beard means "Darren," versus a role.  I'm guessing again it's Computer Games related.

So maybe a Computer Games tour (including China)?


P.S. I like your usage of the little emoticon, Jeremy.  :amused

I agree it's most likely music-related, but since it's only on Darren's social media, my money is on that solo EP he promised. :happy face

I was out and about today and was thinking that maybe it's Darren's solo album, and then returned and saw Lin's post.  :happy face  I've been hoping Darren would keep his word and release his solo album this year, so can't wait to see if that happens!  :fingers crossed :fingers crossed

I think Jeremy's idea is a good possibility too.

I forgot about this thread about Darren's album, that has been a little quiet.  For any further discussion about Darren's album, please go here:  Discussion of Darren's Album

I couldn't find any info confirming that Darren is on the Today Show's calendar on  August 2, but of course I hope that he is on that show on August 2.     http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/today/tv-listings/100548/







Darren's Schedule:


July 26                     Noon-time (ET), Darren makes an announcement (guess what?)




August 2                  On the Today Show(?)




August 26                 In the Cosmos/WordTheatre (Los Angeles)






Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but if Darren's announcement on July 26 is about his album, I wonder why he is making it noon-time Eastern Time?

Yes, the "magician" Darren Criss is definitely listed on the Today Show schedule for August 2nd. 
He's actually listed during the 9:00 hour.  Here's a link:
http://www.nbc.com/schedule

You may need to move the week showing at the top of the page to next week, and then scroll down to the 9:00 hour. 

So, here's hoping that . . . 
1.  Darren is truly the guest that day 
2.  this is an appearance (and MUSICAL PERFORMANCE) related to his July 26th announcement! 
(which makes complete sense)
3.  this is perhaps an announcement for another (more EXTENSIVE) tour he will be doing in conjunction with his--ahem--July 26th announcement--ahem-- (like he did with the LU Tour).
4.  if Darren truly has become a magician, that he pulls his long-awaited album/EP out of his hat!  :amused

:fingers crossed
