haha!   We all would be wealthy! 

It really is an funny story, showing how adorkable Darren really is, which is one of the reasons why I'm a fan.  
Lin wrote:It's such a cute little story. The best part is that he had already booked Glee, but was still getting so excited about doing a background voice on an amusement park ride. And he'd probably still be excited about it today after all the other cool things he's done since.
Disneyland Star Tours story:

Aw, that is true, the best part is that here Darren was, on such a popular TV show, and he's fan-boying out because he is a background voice on a ride.  Because Darren is such a fan-boy of Star Wars.  Yup, and I'm betting it's still one of the highlights of his experiences, even with all the amazing things he has done so far.  Probably ranked as high as doing a duet with Kermit.  :amused



Thanks so much Lin, for tracking down that story and sharing it with us!  

Click on what Lin posted (see above, in Lin's post):
Disneyland Star Tours story:



I agree with you dusty, about those of us who are no longer in our teen years.  :amused

I agree with this.  Do you have stuff from other music artists that are more subtle?

I like the Not Alone shirt a lot.  And if I remember correctly, when I was looking at the Elsie Fest 2015 merchandise, I think there was a shirt with Darren's pic on it, but I preferred the shirt with the more general "Elsie Fest" on it, so that's the one I went with. 

A little mention that when I went to see The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl, I had planned on meeting a couple of Darren fans from the GF there, who I have never met.  So I wore the "Not Alone" t-shirt so that they could spot me more easily.   One of the Hollywood Bowl employees commented on how she loved the shirt and was a fan of Darren.  :happy face

Anton Yelchin, who portrayed Chekov in the Star Trek films, passed.  He will be missed.

And the Senate swiftly rejected the four gun control measures.  Ok . .  .  Rolling Eyes  Back to where we've been.  



Darren tweeted something sports-related:

Poor Darren looks like his face is a little tired from all the smiling he had to do for the photographers.


I thought I would mention a few sites that are great resources for anyone trying to search out some Darren trivia. 
AdorkableDarrenCriss  (the Tag Masterlist is very helpful!)
itswheremydemonshide  (another tumblr whose tags are very organized!)

And both DCN (darrencriss-news) and dailydarrennews have a wonderful tag system, with DCN also having an useful "Search" box.

We are so lucky to have such diligent (and organized) Darren fans.  applause   :bravo

Jeremy posted Demi's snap in the photo thread and asked if that was Darren on the right. Wink Maybe you didn't see it because the pictures always take a moment to load?
Anyway, it's always nice to see Darren hanging out with former Glee cast members!

Thanks for posting that pic, Jeremy. 

Sorry I was asking what pic.  It's so weird, but I can't see the pic that Jeremy posted.  Isn't that weird?   But Lin, you can see it.  (Thanks Lin for clarifying.  I'm going to go to the other Pics thread, because I could not see the pic that Jeremy posted there either.  Am I the only one who is having trouble seeing pics posted by other members?   It's not an issue of re-loading because it's been several minutes now.)

Here is what I see:

Yes, I would be too lazy to even reblog everything, much less have such a thorough tagging system, so I'm always very grateful to the people who make it so easy for the rest of us to look stuff up. And on that note I would like to add a big thank you to YOU for creating this place and turning it into another great resource! :for you

That was so strange.  Thank goodness you commented Lin, or Jeremy and I both still would be confused!   BTW, I can see your pics today, Jeremy.  I have no idea what happened yesterday, but I'm grateful things seem to be working now. 



From dailydarrennews:


I'm guessing that Darren went to a Vulpeck concert in L.A.  Nice to see him with A.J. and Theo.  Wonder if he went with Mr. Hudson or ran into him there?

(The UK just voted to leave the EU. Yes, it's crazy and even "fascinating" on some level, but I feel more like crying at the state of the world right now. I'm suddenly starting to get a bit worried that Americans might actually elect Trump.)

I heard the news, and it's astounding news.  I'm really very sorry, Lin, about how upset you feel.

When one is upset, it's understandable to think of other upsetting scenarios.   I can't imagine my country with Trump as our President. 

If no one minds, I think this may be a better place to discuss these issues:   General News You Want to Talk About
Emotions are going to run high on this issue, especially for those of you from Europe.    I truly sympathize.

Is it an impression or Darren makes a lot of political statements these last weeks ?

I don't think so.  He tweeted yesterday about how "crazy" historically was the vote yesterday.  And by "crazy," I don't think he was taking a stand one way or the other (for or against the UK leaving the EU), but more in the sense that "crazy" meant unbelievable.  Then he re-tweeted and "liked" Hillary Clinton's tweet about the measures up for a vote by the Senate on gun control.  And earlier, just before the California election, he talked about how he is supporting Hillary Clinton.

But this is not something new for him.  He's always expressed how important politics, social issues and world events are.

Yeah but I have the feeling that his political statements are more frequent than before. It may just be an impression, though...

I respect your impression, Jeremy.


I just think though, that it's because within a short period of time, there have been events that Darren has commented upon.  The tragedy of the mass shooting in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the push from Democrats for gun control following that horrific tragedy, the California election (with the backdrop/background of Bernie versus Hillary issue), and then the vote yesterday of the UK.
