So it turns out Poppy is the crazy person here?   :happy face  :big grin  


And I meant to reply to this earlier:
@Poppy wrote: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

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.

Computer died today, but I was able to bring it back up.   I probably will be off-line for a few days until the computer folks either fix it or I have to shop for a new computer.  Hope everyone is doing all right.

Yeah, I also guess Darren talks a bit more about politics because a lot of major things happens right now. 

I'm sorry for your computer, I hope it can be fixed. See you soon.

Wow, Lin, so cool that you figured out how to embed non-youtube videos here.   If it's not too much trouble, do you mind posting a lesson on how you did it in this Topic/thread?   Some General Instructions of How to Use this Site  Thank you in advance, Lin! 

I love seeing Darren perform at his friend's wedding.  He sounds good.    Thanks again, Lin, for posting those videos and also the lovely pics!


One more wedding-related pic, with a nice message.  Darren looks cute in the pic.   She looks lovely.

haha!  :biggrin.png:  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


dusty wrote:Generally I don't like merchandise that are emblazoned with the artists face/name. I prefer it to be more subtle.
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


That's cool that the employee commented on the shirt! That's the beauty of 'advertising' like that I guess, the fans find each other!



Yes, I do have some subtle merchandise. I went to see Garbage play last year and ended up with a grey t-shirt saying This Is Not My Idea Of a Good Time (a line from one of their songs) and a blue canvas bag with a drawing of some faceless people in the rain and the line I'm only Happy when It Rains (another song of theirs). My husband got a t-shirt as well and we wore them at Christmas with both set of families present! hahahahaha! Everyone thought it was very funny!

And Darren posted an instagram with an attached photo that started a funny conversation with his pals, Tyler Oakley (love their friendship), Luke Edgemon (a Glee connection, and who has such a wonderful singing voice of his own, was on The Voice), cute and talented Kevin McHale and Justin Mikita (who happens to be the husband of Jesse Tyler Ferguson).

dailydarrennews captured this humorous exchange.

Bloody hell! Darren's arms!!  wha?



Since when did he become so muscly? They're bigger than in Hedwig right? Or am I imagining things?



Btw, that tweet conversation is hilarious! :laughing 



Aw, Kevin and Luke (one of the original Warblers).

Cute photos at the wedding! Love the one with DC and the boys with the crocket sticks. He looks great! I just love that haircut on him, and he is shaven! What's going on? Lol!

I always get curious when he keeps his face shaven. He also seems to have returned to LA quickly instead of sticking around on the east coast for a while after the wedding, so I wonder if he's working on something.
