Did anyone else have a problem with the forum logo pic not showing up earlier today?   I couldn't see the logo pic (of Darren with his pink and green glasses and top hat) earlier today.    The URL wasn't working any more, so I replaced it.

Does anyone want to try a new pic for the forum logo?   Let me know and we can vote on some options.

@Poppy wrote:That interview of Darren on the Naked American Songbook was really fun to listen to.  You could hear and feel how passionate Darren is about music, and about the process of music composition.  Also loved the harmonizing near the end during "Don't You."  I enjoyed hearing the feedback by the host about "Don't You," of how Darren was bridging the gap between the classical and contemporary songs. I have to say that the Naked American Songbook show did a great job of referencing what Darren mentioned during the interview, by playing songs/excerpts of songs, and even a part of the Six by Sondheim show.   I assume that Darren visited the Naked American Songbook when he was in the Hedwig and the Angry Inch tour, since it was mentioned that Darren was busy with rehearsals, although it seems the Naked American Songbook is in NYC.

He probably recorded it in September when we got the first picture after his haircut. The location was listed as WQXR, which is in the same building as the WNYC studios.

I'm really amazed you remembered that pic, DaisiesandLilies!!  bow to you  Impressive memory and detective skills, DaisiesAndLilies!

I was curious so I went back to when that pic was posted here, and I found this previous post that was made on Sept. 21, 2016.

So the link to the person posting it is to Hillary Bonhomme.  She adds "WQXR."

When I looked her up, it did lead to WQXR, which led me to New York Public Radio.   It is described that New York Public Radio is "is home to three of the country’s leading public radio stations – WNYC FM, WNYC AM and WQXR FM . . . WNYC is a major producer of original content for public radio nationwide.  WQXR is New York City’s only all-classical music station."   At the WQXR website, Hillary Bonhomme is listed, and she is also listed under their other station, WNYC.

I also found info about her at this site:  National Arts Marketing Project.  It says she is a vocalist.  She has an internship with WQXR, under New York Public Radio. 

So Darren is at a classical music radio station(WQXR)/station that produces original content (WNYC) in NYC?   Why?   It could be he's just visiting a friend.   Or it could be something else.

And the link to Darren's interview on the Naked American Songbook links to WNYC. 

ha!  DaisiesAndLilies answered both my question yesterday and my question in my earlier post of Sept. 21, 2016.  The date that dasaniqueen  posted that pic is September 20.   Darren most likely was in rehearsals preparing for his performances in October for the Hedwig tour shows in SF.

A poll about choosing a new picture could be fun.

Anyway, we have to modify the description in the forum logo because "perfromances" is not an English word :amused

How embarrassing.  Embarassed   I didn't even notice that typo.  Thanks for pointing that out, Jeremy.   So if anyone is interested in a new Forum logo pic, just go ahead and post possible pics for the Forum logo.    Otherwise, I can keep this photo too.  I'm rather fond of it.

ANNOUNCEMENT:  DISAPPEARING IMAGES




For anyone reading this forum, there is a problem that popped up this week.  First, I noticed this forum's logo pic disappeared, and then I noticed many pics which I found on tumblr (mostly dailydarrennews), that were posted in this forum in the various threads, disappeared as well.  



You may be confused as to why you see so many captions without any pics, so that is why.  I will be asking for assistance from the Forumotion Support Forum, but I'm not sure yet if they will be able to give me an easy solution.   Lin has been assisting me and she discovered that Tumblr changed the URL on the images that disappeared.  There are a lot of pics involved, and I just do not have the time to go post-to-post to fix the images in the posts.  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.


To current members:  If you see some of the images in your posts have disappeared, this is most likely why.  I greatly would appreciate it if you would take the time to repost the images in your posts.  But if you do not have the time, no worries.

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.

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.
