Give me 2-9 actors, and then I'll stick my music on shuffle and make a movie synopsis based on those actors and the first song that comes up.

Top Five Original Darren Songs (Non-Starkid):

1. Don't You
2. Jealousy
3. The Muse
4. Stutter
5. Sophomore

(I chose to do non-Starkid songs because I covered my top five Starkid songs in this post.)

Top Five Darren Covers (non-Glee):

1. Tu Vuoi Fa L'Americano (YouTube)
Hnnng. Italian. AND he forgets his lyrics, which is always one of my favourite things. Dork.

2. The Rainbow Connection/Almost Like Being In Love
(Almost Like Being in Love)
My favourite version is the double, which I know is kind of cheating but he does blend them into one song. Rainbow Connection is one of my favourite songs, and I find the way he sings Almost Like Being In Love adorable.

3. Belle (YouYube)
My favourite "weird Disney cover". His Gaston voice! The giggling! "Isn't he dreamy"!

4. Part of Your World (YouTube)
This one had to grow on me, and I like his live versions better than the YouTube one - particularly when he swears, because that makes me laugh - but I have to admit it's really sweet.

5. Sitting On the Dock of the Bay
This one is just sexy and sultry and gorgeous, I love listening to it over and over again.

(Runners-up: One Fine Day, That's All, Dammit.)

Top Five Darren Covers (Glee)

1. Teenage Dream (YouTube)
(Teenage Dream - my favourite Darren solo version)
The song that started it all. I like almost all the songs on this list better than the originals, but this is just SO much better. The arrangement is amazing.

2. Baby, It's Cold Outside (YouTube)
Only my strong dislike of listening to Christmas songs at any time other than December (when I listen to them non-stop) prevents this from being the most-played song on my iTunes. I love it so much, and I love their FACES when they sing it.

3. I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You
Darren Link Larkining all over the stage! Plus the song is super catchy.

4. Raise Your Glass (YouTube - from the Glee Live concert)
I just think this song is fun. I like it much better than anything else that was performed at that Regionals contest.

5. Animal (YouTube)
(Animal - my favourite solo Darren version)
To be honest, I really don't enjoy watching them perform this song - I prefer Bills, Bills, Bills and Misery - but I love listening to it. More than that, I love listening to Darren singing it solo, because when he does "you're killing me now" it KILLS ME. So freaking sexy.

Top Five Darren Song Performances
I took this to mean not so much for quality performances as ones I really love, so.

1. Goin' Back to Hogwarts (Azkatraz) (YouTube)
Obviously, this one's here because it's the moment I fell in love with Darren. Also because everybody's cute and happy and together and this is just it for me, in so many ways. It makes me smile every time.

2. Granger Danger with Joey Richter (The Roxy) (YouTube)
This one's special to me because a) Granger Danger! b) I liveblogged The Roxy show over at [ profile] kurt_blaine specifically because Joey was there, and c) DARREN AND JOEY. I just love how excited everyone is, and how damn cute. It's unfortunate that the audio quality from the Roxy shows isn't so great.

3. I Still Think (Living Room) (YouTUbe)
His guitar string breaks because it was so excited to be playing for everybody. I would actually rather listen to this one than a complete, perfect version of the song.

4. Do Ya Think I'm Sexy (Live) (YouTube)
Guh. So much. This for so many reasons - it's a better version than the original, Darren sounds hot - but most of all, because he is so excited he literally bounces in his seat at some points.

5. The Muse (Michigan in Motion) (YouTube)
This is, for me, the definitive version of The Muse - and Darren spends half the song trying to reach the microphone. Also, the hair!

...the whole Mint show
I love this whole show like burning. It's got Joe Walker and some other Starkids yelling in the audience, a bunch of rare songs, and Darren doing requests from the audience - including a solo version of Granger Danger. It's just Darren, a guitar, and some fans, and it's loose and informal and gorgeous, and I love it so much. Plus, whole show in one file! How cool is that?

Top Five Darren Moments From AVPM/S

1. "One, two, three, Redvines!"
2. "Who is that? I think I'm in love!"
3. "Everybody knows I'm cool."
4. "I'M IN A RAGE! This is the maddest I've ever been!"
5. "Permission form?" "Um, no, I'm Harry Potter."

Top Five Darren Lyrics

1. You're damn near flawless and I'm sure you'd cut/up my eyes, my hands, my head, my heart/You'd tear this canvas skin apart/oh, what a waste of human art that'd be - The Muse
2. A kiss, there's a thought so how about this/Let's pretend that both our lips are made of candy/After all, we need sweets every now and then - Don't You
3. Our history is nothing more than what the losers settle for - Not Over Yet
4. I was thinking that, like, maybe we could chill tonight/we could watch The Breakfast Club, is that alright?
It's no wonder that you're underneath my skin/I haven't let you out since I let you in
My braces are freezing over/I'm shaking for you/I can't wait 'til this is over and I'll fall in love with you - Sophomore
5. Now let’s be real I feel just like a child/Someone could be taking all my toys/So call me dumb, call me wild/See that’s the thing with little boys - Jealousy

Top 5 Goofiest Things Darren's Done

2. His shoes. All of the time.
3. When Joe kicked his shoe off and Joey and Nicholas were cracking up, Darren had no idea what was going on.
4. He swam across an empty land!
5. Messing up When You Wish Upon a Star at Maggiano's...then referring to the stuff up the next time he was at Maggiano's and messing it up again. Bless.

Top Five Darren Quotes

1. There's nothing more badass than being yourself.

Wow, got through one day before forgetting about this. Woo! Three more day's worth here.

Day 1 – do you believe in god?/what religion are you?

Day 2 – Do you believe in an afterlife? What do you believe happens when you die?

No more you.

Day 3 – are you proud to be from whatever country you are from?

I used to be when I was younger. I know there are worse places to live and that I'm incredibly privileged, but I like to think of myself as more of a human being than an Australian. I feel like if we're so lucky, we should be sharing that and be more forward-thinking instead of being so egocentric and stuck in the past.

Day 4 – what is your view on gay marriage?

I don't like weddings that much - receptions, sure, but not weddings - so I'm not looking forward to having to sit through more of them when the government finally wakes up and realizes how fucking stupid they're being and legalises gay marriage. Or, better, separates marriage from the state and gets everyone to declare as a couple, with all those benefits, completely separately to having to be married.

Rest of the days )

Stole a 24 days of controversy meme from Jamie, let's see if I make it all the way through. Here's an early controversial opinion for you: I hate memes with no capitalisation.

Day 1 – do you believe in god?/what religion are you?

No/atheist. My mother's Church of England and I was raised Catholic, like my father's side of the family.

Re: Glee

My favourite musical numbers to watch on this show are always anything by Blaine or Puck. Puck kills me. I love his voiceovers like burning, too.

Also, the adorableness of Darren in both Sue Sylvester Shuffle Bowl and Silly Love Songs gave me heart palpitations, I'm pretty sure.

I don't think people really understand how things work in the Gleeverse. Nothing has consequences. Little bit spoilery )These are things we accept.

Comment and I'll pick five of your icons. Post an entry about why you love those icons.

[ profile] zombres picked for me:

1. Supes: Misha's a Special Snowflake by [ profile] fifteenminutes @ [ profile] unlovablehand

Misha is the most sarcastic, insane celebrity pretty much ever. He makes shit up on a regular basis. I love the whimsical way he approaches life. I also love his gorgeous face, and his sexy voice, and generally the fact that he exists. This icon, with his silly hat and sillier quote, embodies those qualities. Sort of. I guess.

2. LotR: Geez Aragorn by [ profile] proverbial_icon

This cracked me up so hard when I first saw it. I don't even like Napoleon Dynamite that much, but this! Their faces! It still makes me smile. Also, it's kind of a fixture in my icons now. You know how there are some you will never, ever delete?

3. ST: They're Good by [ profile] duskwillow @ [ profile] duskicons

Oh hey, this was my very first Star Trek XI icon! Such an accurate description of how I feel about this movie, and them in it. The font on this is adorable, too. I really need to do a rewatch.

4. ST: Jizz in my Pants [ profile] chisels @ [ profile] sealings

I like to have icons about how hot certain people are, and this one makes me laugh. That caption for the image is gold. And again, an incredibly accurate icon. Chris Pine is so damn hot, seriously.

5. Dollhouse: Enver Needs an Emmy by [ profile] dekolette

Have you SEEN him act? Enver Gjokaj deserves ALL THE AWARDS, and yet nobody seems to give him the credit he's due. He is the most versatile actor, honestly - he is able to jump in and out of the most convincing characters without so much as getting in costume (Laurence Dominic, hello?) His Victopher is one of the greatest performances I have ever seen in my life. Also, he's cute. Also, [ profile] dekolette is an awesome icon maker.

6. Dom: Too Much? by me

I'm not a huge fan of the style of this icon, but I am a huge fan of Dom trying on ALL THE SUNGLASSES AT ONCE, and sometimes it can be an appropriate icon to use. I do tend to go overboard every so often. Just a little.

7. DCriss: My Bad by me

This is one of my most favourite pictures of Darren ever. HIS LITTLE FACE. IT IS SO PRECIOUS IT HURTS. I love him at the Roxy, with the bow tie. He's just...he's so cute.

Ask me a fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Questions can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.

Just for something non-Darren related to do. (I am making icons, though.)
