Glee comes back tonight! And even better, it's now set in New York City. So, basically two of my favorite things in the world are now coming together. It also means that I can kiss my Thursday night's goodbye because watching Glee is quite the process with me. There is, of course, the pre-screeing activities such as discussing who we think is going to break up tonight, pressing the coffee (I've gotten up to four cups a day- but I can still fall asleep within an hour of having one.), and getting into our PJs. And afterwards, there is the all important hour-long discussion and scrutinizing of absolutely every move made and songs sung, then of course, some ice cream (or in the case of a winter season, hot apple cider). It's quite a production.
In terms of where the show is going, I honestly feel that it could go in a lot of different directions. I'm really excited that Rachel is moving to the city to attend NYADA though. Though I like to think I'm not quite as obnoxious as Ms.Berry, I definitely identify with her level of determination and passion. I have absolutely no talent in the musical department, but we both moved (back) to New York City to follow our dreams right out of high school and are willing to stop at nothing to make sure we're successful. Take it from me and Rachel, hard work pays off and never give up. The cream always rises bitches.
On a completely different note, does anyone remember Glee's FNO PSA promoting last years events? Or the accompanying Vogue spread? It was so terrible. I like that none of them know anything about fashion though. Even Chris Colfer (Kurt on Glee) said, "When Glee first started, I had no idea who Marc Jacobs was. In no way was I a fashion person." And Lea Michele? My original intention for this post was going to be a photo of her in a ball gown followed by the quote, "If you try on a gown with no make-up & your hair in a ponytail and still feel beautiful, then you know it's a good dress." But after searching for a good fifteen minutes without a single red-carpet look of hers that I liked, I couldn't look anymore. Estee Stanley has her work cut out for her.
