UPDATE ON THE CASE OF THE MISSING PICS


Everyone, Lin is a tech wizard!   She has given me a way to fix the problem!   thumbs up clapping hands   Yea!  THANK YOU SO MUCH, LIN!!    I appreciate your help so much!!    bow to you bow to you bow to you


The fix involves going post-to-post, but the great news is that I do not have to actually re-copy the missing images.   Lin's fix is much faster than that.  I may not get through all the posts with missing images, but I'll get through many of them.  :happy face


Note to members:  I have had no need to edit any posts by members, since we have such nice members (of course!)   heart 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's been flying cross country again (of course!).  :happy face 



From dailydarrennews:

A fan saw him at JFK International Airport (NYC) and posted it on January 13 (Friday).

Another fan saw him at Amelie the musical in Los Angeles.  Her post is dated today, January 16.


You can find her post here:  allysfantasy:







Michael Feinstein tweeted about doing another duet with Darren!  

@MichaelFeinstei (dated January 16, 2017)

I loved their duet when Darren was invited to perform on Michael Feinstein's New Year's Eve at the Rainbow Room, which was aired on PBS on December 31, 2014.   Here is a video of that performance, courtesy of Alex of DCN :



They sound so good.  Love their harmonizing.  :love

UPDATE:  DISAPPEARING IMAGES



I managed to restore almost all of the missing images from the various threads.  The only thread/Topic where I may not get to all the images is the longest thread (Darren Appreciation Thread:  General News about Darren for 2016).


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.

Also, if there are certain posts that you wrote for which you would like me to restore images, please PM me and I will try to restore the images in those specific posts.   This mostly may concern the Darren Appreciation Thread:  General News about Darren for 2016, since I believe I was able to retrieve most of the images in all other threads.   If I missed some images in the other threads, feel free to PM me as well. 

If there are certain posts written by someone other than yourself, but for which you would like the images restored, also feel free to PM me about those posts.

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.

IMPORTANT NOTE
ANNOUNCEMENT:  DELETED POSTS IN Darren Appreciation Thread for 2017

On January 23, 2017, I accidentally deleted one thread (the "Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017").    I do apologize!


I restored the thread in question, through the back-up, but the back up only went up to January 19, 2017.  Thus, posts from January 20-23, 2017, in the "Darren Appreciation Thread:  General News about Darren for 2017" were lost.

Thank you Lin, for pinpointing what I did wrong, and for the suggestion of what I can do to help prevent me from doing the same error.



IMPORTANT NOTE: 

UPDATE:  Deleted Posts in The Darren Appreciation Thread for 2017

 
Unfortunately, I am unable to restore those posts from January 20-23, 2017, in one thread, the "Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017."

If anyone remembers if they posted in the "Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017" from January 20- 23, 2017, feel free to re-post your comments in this thread.  I apologize if I lost any members' posts. 

I think that almost all of the posts during that time period in this one thread were done by me, but I'm not completely sure. 

Going through what Darren Criss Army and Daily Darren News posted during January 20-23, I have re-posted some of the events that they covered from January 20-23, 2017 (the time period of the lost posts in this thread).

Thank you everyone for your patience.

I love this pic and Darren's message about President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama: :cry

darrencriss: … No, thank YOU, Mr. President.
This photo was taken four years ago tomorrow, and marks one of the greatest honors of my life. Thank you, Obamas, for your leadership, your grace, your strength, your compassion, your humor- the list goes on and on. You have been and will continue to be an inspiration to us all, for generations to come. Also let’s be real, hot damn what a great lookin’ couple. Can’t wait to see what you do next. #tbt

For Darren’s 30th


standproudtoday:

Darren is turning 30 soon and we thought of a little something to send him lots of love from all over the place~

We are making a video and to add a little ‘personal’ touch we decided to do the following, in order to match Darren’s “languages are a big hobby of mine”:

1.) send us a video in which you wish Darren happy birthday in YOUR language (it doesn’t matter if it’s English, French, Korean or whatever language..)
Tell us where you are from and what you said so we can add the subtitles for him.

2.) if you don’t want to send a video, but still wish to participate: send us a picture, and write happy birthday - again, in your language - and where you are from - we will include it just like any video.

Send your video to    standproudtoday@gmail.com
(in order to keep the quality of the video/picture intact) until the 4th of February (as soon as possible please)

Please help us spread the word and include as many people as possible~ We want to show Darren our support. Thank you

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

haha!  You're so funny, Jeremy.  thumbs up 


It is funny to think that I've been a fan of Darren for over five years.  I don't even remember when I started to follow Darren, but it probably was sometime during the end of season 2 of Glee, or beginning of season 3, so at least since early 2012.  I know others have been following him since his StarKid days (2009?  2010?).    It's nice to know (but no surprise) that he has such loyal fans.

From dailydarrennews, a birthday video:

Such a sweet message from Mason Alexander Park.  You can also see Mia.  Gleekto and others believe the other man is Michael Thomas Grant, who Darren had sung with.  So sweet to see how happy Darren is singing this StarKid song, "Granger Danger." 

masonalexanderpark: Wishing a happy freakin birthday to my sister from another mister, @darrencriss  This night I proclaimed that there would be no Darren Criss on Glee without A Very Potter Musical, and we proceeded to have a jam session to the very silly show that completely changed my life as a teen.

I thought I also would post this about Mason Alexander Park's conversation with one of Darren's fans.  As she says, this just confirms my belief that Darren is such a beautiful soul--the main reason why I am such a big fan of his (along with his talent and quirky personality).  heart heart heart

I think I’ve never shared this here but the video Mason just posted reminded me of this…when I went to see Hedwig in LA, my sister, a friend of mine and I had the chance to talk for a bit to Mason when he came out of the stage door and he was the sweetest. We chatted for a while and he told us how amazing, kind and sweet Darren is, especially as a coworker. Like he told us how, even if he never got to actually play Hedwig in SF nor LA, Darren let him handle the rehearsals so that he could be prepared and be ready and that he made him (and everybody else) feel important in the process. Like, he made sure to point out how genuine and nice he is and how working with him is a beautiful thing since he makes sure to always make everybody feel included. I was honestly bursting with pride. I’m so happy to be a fan of such a good person :big grin

Must be bizzare for Darren to meet people in his regular/work life who not only are aware of the show, but know it the the point of being able to sing along to the songs because it had a real impact on their lives.

My pleasure, Lin!  :happy face

Must be bizzare for Darren to meet people in his regular/work life who not only are aware of the show, but know it the the point of being able to sing along to the songs because it had a real impact on their lives.

Yes, it's a very sweet video.  And yes, to see the joy on Darren's face, is touching, because he's so happy that they know the words to this StarKid song!  You see Mason breaking out into a big smile when he sees how happy Darren is.   I also like the cute interaction between Mia and the guy who people think is Michael Thomas Grant.  The video feels very personal.  And the message from Mason Alexander Park, is very touching.  I love reading people's messages about how much StarKid and Darren meant to them when they were young.  heart 

Thanks Lin, for researching Alex Brightman.  :happy face


From dailydarrrennews:







So cute of Darren to thank "Jake and Maggie."  Wonder what they did to help Darren get back to the set of The Flash? 




A belated birthday greeting from Ashley Weston:  :happy face
