That video is the cutest. I had seen one or two of those before with a lot more screeching and freaking out and thought "yeah that concept is not going to work with Darren", but I wasn't expecting it to be so sweet instead.
Remember that time he stopped a concert because he had spotted a fuzzy little caterpillar?
That's one of my favorite videos of Darren, where he just is being himself.  I could not do the Fear Box!  lol.  haha.  "Yeah that concept is not going to work with Darren."  :big grin   I know, I didn't expect the video to be so sweet and cute either.  I do remember the caterpillar on his keyboard during his Listen Up tour.  And there is the puppy room, and the video when he recorded "New Morning" with Chuck where there was a cute dog in the studio, also the squirrel Darren had a conversation with during a break from filming Versace.

Well, his friend Mr Hudson is also performing, but later in the week. Hopefully he can get out there and won't get stranded due to weather.

I've been on pins and needles all day (let's face it, all year!) in anticipation for this show.

Oh wow, you also are so good at finding these things out, DaisiesAndLilies!   Cross fingers there is no stranding for Darren.

Glad to see you are excited to see this show, DaisiesAndLilies.  Please share your thoughts later, if you have time.  I'll love to hear what you think.
:happy face 

I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to watch so that I can get a heads up warning from Jeremy about where the violent parts are.  Thank you again so much Jeremy!!


Happy viewing to those in U.S. (and Canada?) tonight!

I didn't realize they were dating so long.   Yes, so happy for them!  I wonder if they were engaged since their trip to Japan, since that's in the background of their pic.  And I forgot to comment, but I love the Star Trek reference, a show that revels in taking adventures.  Adorably nerdy reference.  :happy face


dcriss-archive has so many well wishes from friends and associates, along with media coverage.  I will list a few (I'm still getting over my exhaustion from trying to cover all the Versace reviews and interviews, so excuse me if I don't post all the well-wishes listed by dcriss-archive.    There's just so many.)

Cute.  :happy face  I like how not just Darren and Mia, but the tour guide are so enthusiastic.  I'm also impressed with the camera taking the video from so many different positions.

Didn't get a chance to post this yesterday.  Darren at Guns N Hoses concert (Mia and Charlene Kaye, who also went to the Women's March in Los Angeles :happy face ). 

charlenekaye: No better way to celebrate Women’s March weekend than by thrashing with these glorious women whom I love, trust and adore with all my heart. I love you @gunsnhosesrock and thank you for an unforgettable sold out show, LA :@fox_sinclair

This is nice of Paul McGill (Hedwig and the Angry Inch):

Paul_McGill_: Happy happy Birthday to Chita! And happy happy engagement to @darrencriss … so much good is happening in the world. Just gotta know where to look!





















aspictures: Start with a young, handsome actor who knows how to wear clothes. Add a fantastically decorated modern house in the hills (and if you don’t break anything you get invited back). Mix in wardrobe from Micheal Kors, Coach and Giorgio Armani. Sprinkle with a killer crew and season to taste! Hard to go wrong! This is Darren Criss for the new issue of Vanity Fair. Our day with Darren was perfectly executed by @nicolbiesekphoto and produced by @sunny16productions who brought a guy from the Apple Store to be her PA. That 4x floppy was expertly placed by @paoloalfante and @werewolf_ish. The floppy gives the ambient light in the room just a little bit of shape. The BTS was brilliantly handled by @evanmullingphoto. Styling by @ashleypweston. Grooming by @kmannmakeup. Digital teching by @johnnytalay. @darrencriss#darrencriss @vanityfair @hasselblad_official @americancrimestoryfx NO STROBES WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS PORTRAIT.


aspictures: And the result…Nothing but daylight! Darren Criss for the current issue of Vanity Fair. Criss is the star of the new American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. A tough series for my wife and I to watch as we knew Gianni well when we were the co-bureau chiefs in Milan for W Magazine. But Criss is doing a spectacular job portraying Versace’s killer, Andrew Cunanan. This shoot was produced by @sunny16productions with help from @nicolbiesekphoto. Lighting and not lighting by @paoloalfante and @werewolf_ish. Killer location house in the hills by #thenorfolks. BTS photography on a Sony point and shoot by @evanmullingphoto. Pants and shirts and jackets by @ashleypweston. Paint and plaster by @kmannmakeup. File naming and numbering by @johnnytalay. Gorgetastic post production by @angiemariehayes. @darrencriss #darrencriss @vanityfair @hasselblad_official. @americancrimestoryfx NO STROBES WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS PORTRAIT.

I want to go to Japan, but I think I'll skip Mario karts near Shibuya station. Going to an owl cafe or record cafe would be more my speed. :big grin

I predict that if Darren and Mia get married this year, it will be in July. Just a guess. Too bad they couldn't squeeze into the schedule a wedding on the total solar eclipse day last year, because they're both nerdy enough to appreciate it.

That's a good guess.  Summer is a good time for a wedding. 

I wonder where they will have the wedding?  Some exotic locale?  New York?  Los Angeles?


haha.  I could see Darren and Mia doing that, getting married on the date of the total solar eclipse. 

Will their wedding be Harry-Potter-themed?  :amused
