Day 70: Best singers
Since this and the other categories (actors and dancers) are speaking to real-life abilities, I will be referring to the actors, meaning I will mention both Glee and outside projects.
This is totally subjective, of course. Technically, the best show choir belter is going to be Lea Michele. Her performance of “Don’t Rain on My Parade” still gets my blood racing. And in spite of what Rolling Stone says I totally think she pulls off pop. I play her album tracks nonstop! Next, Alex Newell (using male pronouns since Alex identifies as male) LAWDY LAWD that voice astounds me, from “Diva” to “Boogie Shoes” to “If I Were A Boy.” His voice brings me to Jesus; I’m an agnostic-bordering-on-the-atheist-end and I still listen to his “Joy to the World” and get chills! And finally, for jazz, passion, and all-around swoon-worthiness, Darren Criss. Because fucking Darren, man. He can be smooth as Sinatra, and then do that sexy, bluesy growl, and then on a song like “I Don’t Mind” be so soft and sweet and warm. I turn into a puddle.
things that are totally okay
- shipping whatever you want
- liking the idea of queer representation in your fandom
- thinking that two men would be an attractive couple
things that aren’t okay
- sending hate to a celebrity’s significant other where you know they can see it [link one] [link 2]
- tweeting in general about wanting someone’s girlfriend to die/be killed/ injured/ whatever
- joking about wanting to feed someone peanut butter when you know they’re allergic to peanut butter because they’re dating someone you want to be with a straight man
- actively denying and refusing to accept one’s sexuality when he has stated numerous times when he’s straight and has a girlfriend (establishes that he’s straight at 3:30, establishes that he has a girlfriend shortly thereafter)
- actively refusing one’s denials of dating their costar (establishes that he is not dating his costar at 14:30)
- outright refusing to respect one’s private life and personal space and continuing to write porn and fanfiction with them when they have expressed that it made them uncomfortable and even tweeting them about RPF
- tweeting the celebrities and telling them to just come out that they’re together and denying their sexualities
- spreading rumors that a celebrity’s girlfriend is a “crack whore” and does cocaine off mirrors
- mocking one of their mutual friend’s death to make fun of a celebrity’s girlfriend
- calling said girlfriend a slut/whore/hooker and mocking her attire for her stage persona (and then going on to describe themselves as feminists after slut shaming and telling her to “put on clothes”)
- hoping that someone who is close to one of their “idols” dies
- this lovely conversation between hunter and an anonymous tweeter
- The fact that a celebrity’s girlfriend has to defend herself from her boyfriend’s fans constantly
- defacing their “idol’s” book that they were extremely proud of to pursue their fantasy ship (and also e-editing it in an attempt to do the same exact thing)
This could assentially be summed up like anything in fandom:
1. Ship what you want
2. Don’t be an asshole.
Anonymous said: why yalls garlic bread so nasty
What the fuck. What thef. Uck. You come on here, you come into my house, you take a shit on my post you shit on garlic bread, you shit on everything I stand for, on this, the day of my daughter’s wedding… .
I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store.
I think about this all the time
