Democratic National Convention.  July 27, 2016.

Aw, it was wonderful to see Darren at the Democratic National Convention tonight.  I really enjoyed watching most of the evening' s speeches.   

The performance of "What the World Needs Now" was beautiful and inspiring.   Loved it!  So many beautiful voices and souls singing their hearts out.  I loved seeing Seth Rudetsky there in the middle of the line-up, conducting.  Really truly heartwarming.


Great video posted by dailydarrennews (thank you!):







A slightly longer video posted by CBS, the camera pans down the line-up of singers, so we see Darren again clapping enthusiastically.  :happy face

My browser just froze and I lost my post. computer angst I'll reply to this here then because it fits a little better than in the Smitten thread:
@Poppy wrote:I don't know anything about Snapchat.  Can anyone explain it to me?   I think it's cool that it appears that one  easily may place fun/funny animated images (like "cartoon Darren" and a cartoon pic of a fuel gauge on empty) and decorative messages, on top of actual photos.    It seems like that kind of social media would appeal to Darren's fun and quirky side.


He does seem to be making an effort to use social media more often, which I think in general is a good thing, to connect with fans on a broad level  like that (along with his continuing to be quite remarkable in that compared to  most celebrities, he always has made a huge effort to try to connect with fans he actually meets, by taking photos, signing his autograph, making eye-contact, asking fans how they are doing, even when he is in a rush, something that most celebrities shy away from, generally-speaking).

Sorry, I'm as clueless as you are.  upside down  From what I gather, the original idea behind it was that the pictures/videos get deleted right after viewing them, but now I think they can be viewed repeatedly? I think they do still get deleted at some point, so I'm glad it's all archived on Tumblr, but I think they stay on Snapchat for a day or so now, or maybe you can set a time. But I guess the point is that it's supposed to be a(n even) more immediate, in-the-moment thing than other social media? I guess part of the appeal for Darren might be that there's less room for overthinking.
And then the other main appeal seems the easy ability to add silly/fun stuff like those cartoon thingies you mentioned and the "filters" like the Harry Potter one, altought personally I find most of those filters that I've seen just kind of creepy.  scared

It's true that Darren seems to be in one of his general "social media phases" right now, but I'm still surprised that he has used Snapchat as much as he has, especially yesterday at Disneyland. That's not really something he usually posts about on social media, least of all while he's still there. And even posting a cute video with Mia (but I guess another "positive" is that there's apparently no comment function, so he and Mia get hit with less immediate negativity...)
I'm not expecting this to last once the novelty wears off, but I'm definitely enjoying it while it does. :happy face It's nice to get some random updates and sillyness and see a little more of Darren's face, though we've been spoiled this week anyway!

Thanks for your answer.  Actually, you did tell me a lot.  Good point about SnapChat appealing to Darren possibly because there is less room for overthinking. 

And I agree, some of those filters are creepy (some of the animal ones).  I thought the  Harry Potter one was funny though.

Oh, that's a good point, in terms of it being unusual for Darren to post on social media at Disneyland, especially while he's still there.   And I personally am grateful for the lack of comment function.   I mean, I also am grateful for some articles I read online and youtube videos I watch that disable the comment section.    :big grin Razz   It's tedious and irritating to read mean comments.  Rolling Eyes   :talking

"Less room for overthinking", I say... and then he posts a new Harry Potter snap because in the one he had done half a day earlier, you couldn't see the scar properly. :laughing  (I laugh, as if I hadn't noticed the missing scar right away and been slightly disappointed about it...)
(I would post the video, but it's not working on DDN's Tumblr right now. Here's a link to it on their Twitter)

You'd think those people who hate Darren or Darren-with-Mia should have moved on at this point, but... Rolling Eyes
Personally, I never read comment sections, and I rarely see negativity on Tumblr/Twitter because I blocked all the idiots years ago. It just bothers me to know that they send that garbage directly to Darren/Mia/unknowing friends who dare to post a picture.

I'm glad that you blocked those people, Lin. 

Sigh.  confused   Yes, a few haters still linger.    I do think some have moved on, and I think it will happen more as more time passes since Glee finished.  It's strange that people who hate something or hate someone tend to feel so motivated by their hate that they have to be loud and vocal about it.   I mean, if you are going to be consumed by passion for something, I would hope for your own sake/health, you would choose to be consumed by something you feel positively about, by something that you love.  It's bizarre how these folks have no idea how, by being loud about their dislike, that it really harms them (and not the target of their hate), because the large majority of the audience/viewers/readers who see their negativity form a bad opinion of them.   Darren and Mia, well anyone who is in the public eye, really do have to form a thick skin.   Fortunately, it does seem that Darren has a healthy attitude about it, and views them as mosquitoes, that is, as merely pesky, insignificant insects who may irritate you for some brief  moments, but are of little importance in the long run.

"Here's a link to it on their (dailydarrennews) Twitter:  VIDEO"




haha! :laughing  I laughed out loud at the fact that Darren felt so passionately about showing the Harry Potter scar (and I smiled that you noticed in the first place) that he did a second video.  He's such a lovable dork sometimes and his passion for Harry Potter really is endearing.   I had no idea what that second video was, since it wouldn't play, so thanks Lin, for posting the link to dailydarrennews' tweet of that video.

I'm enjoying this friendship between Jodi and Darren.  Maybe Jodi can drop by at Elsie Fest, and Tituss is already there too.   Darren would need to get Norm Lewis there, so they could sing "If Only."  (Or if Norm cannot make it, maybe Brian Stokes Mitchell, since Darren seemed to be hanging out with Brian making funny videos).  :happy face

Just imagine if Jodi, Tituss, Norm and Darren sang "If Only" at Elsie Fest.  heart :love   Enjoy this video of "If Only" performed by these four talented folks on June 6, 2016 at the Hollywood Bowl (for The Little Mermaid performance):


I love how Darren stretches out for forever that one note at the end.  Just so pretty, and so impressive.  His vocal control has improved so much. heart

Darren spreading the word about expressing one's views through "construction." 
naturallight -  Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2016  - Page 7 Tumblr_obgf6wdZIl1uetdyxo1_500


link to video



I like the message, and I agree.   As per the video, there are two ways one can respond to a comment that one may consider to be an outrageous opinion:  Destruction or construction.  Destruction involves reacting emotionally and carelessly (note that one can be emotional without being careless), which involves little critical, analytical thought, with the goal of "destroying" a perceived opponent.  Construction involves trying to understand what motivates that person to say what he said, to empathize and assume the best of that person.  It involves constraint and patience, and the goal is not to destroy, but hopefully, to express an opposing view in a analytical, thought-filled way. 

"The best thing to do is reach for a flashlight and  not start a fire."

My favorite persons on tumblr are those who practice construction, who try to respond in a polite but analytical manner to express why they disagree with a view.  This is why I enjoy reading the site of gleekto, for example.
