cross posted from my tumblr
*Author’s note:I been having these thoughts for a few months now and I just thought it would be best to write them down and publish them. Keep in mind that none of this should be taken too seriously. I based this off an open letter I read a few months ago during the Olympics. This is my first ever post to tumblr too, so be kind please.
First off: Congratulations on your success. Your guys portray your characters Finn and Rachel very well. A huge fan-base revolves around shipping Finn and Rachel, known in the fandom as Finchel. Also, if fan reaction is any indication, people undoubtedly want them back together.
And now the inevitable fan question has started popping up: that is, when are you start having babies? Yes, I have read the press about you two just being really great friends and how you think of each other as brother and sister. You have to understand though, it’s quotes like this one(from People last year) that get us a little annoyed.
“We’re great friends. We’ve become really close over the show, but we’re just friends. We’re not dating,” the actor, who plays McKinley High’s quarterback Finn Hudson on the FOX show, said Thursday at the Marshalls and T.J. Maxx “Carol-Oke” contest at New York’s Bryant Park.
On on-screen relationships you’ve said this:
“That seems really difficult. That seems like it would be tricky,” Monteith said.
Look, I can understand the reasons you might not want a public relationship. But then, we see the photos of you guys together, and – come on – it’s just too good. If I could just give you guys some advice, we can make this work. In fact, meet me at the next paragraph Cory.
Hey, Cory. Now I know your worried about the stresses of having a Hollywood relationship, but your looking at this all wrong. Your relationship with Lea is already beyond the friendship stage. I know that now that you’re an Hollywood celeb, the dating possibilities are endless. And you’re right, they totally are. But they will ruin you. Think about it: For multiple hours of the day, you’re paired up with a total fox who you’re around all the time and with whom you share a life goal (and who doesn’t bore you to tears). After the gagillionth time you’ve explained the extra hour you spent at the studio to your fire-pissed jealous girlfriend, you’ll realize it’s barely even worth texting it again. And then you’ll realize I was right. You’ve got a good one here. In fact, Lea, let’s talk for a second…
Hi, Lea. Look: I know at this point you’re probably saying something like, “But it’d be like dating my brother,” and that’s fair enough, but you’re just looking at it the wrong way – it’s all in your head. Besides, the seed has already been planted. As someone who has a little sister, I know for a fact that what you guys have is not a brother/sister relationship as you’ve put it(from Dose.ca).
“I don’t have a crush on Cory!” she insists. “Cory is such a goofball. He’s like my brother. I swear to God, that kid can make me a laugh.”
I would more accurately describe your relationship as being in a strange gray zone between best friends forever and boyfriend/girlfriend. I mean, you guys make each other laugh, constantly see each other. Let’s face it, It’s going to be hard to find someone who doesn’t mind you hanging out with a handsome friend for several hours a day(and that doesn’t include photoshoots).
So, I realize you’ve already done a lot for us fans, but I’ll make you a deal: You guys promise to give it a go, and we’ll promise that nobody else will ever write you another mediocre open letter calling for your immediate engagement.
p.s. There, I’ve said what’s been on my mind all this time, now I feel better.

First, I would like to start by saying there are some serious issues with this episode. For one thing, it seemed a little out of character for Emma to marry Carl in Las Vegas on a weekend! Also, Finchel fans didn’t that break-up just suck? I mean, of all the ways of Finn and Rachel to break-up that was the worst. As for the rest of the episode and the other characters it was alright. The quality of the musical performances varied; I thought “Hey, Soul Sister” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” were good, but the others ranged from just fine to not that exciting. I did like the Hipster’s performance though. Brittany and Artie turned out to be a cute couple. Well, Unfortunately that’s all for now; I give this episode a C+.
Quote of the week from Brittany:”I know that I’m more talented than you. Britney Spears told me that.”

Safe to say “Never Been Kissed” is a good episode. There are some pretty big surprises in this one. Also, remember “Vitamin D”? Because, mash-ups are back! First I will start off by telling Finchel fans that there are not many Finn and Rachel scenes in this episode. That said, what we did get was awesome. First, it starts off with Finn and Sam bathing in the locker room. Sam asks Finn advice on how to “cool down” while making out. Finn tells Sam about the “mailman” and that’s when he realizes coach Beiste can be his version of the mailman. Eventually Quinn finds out, and after some misunderstandings and some advice from coach Sylvester the school figures out about it. This embarrasses coach Beiste which forces her to quit, Beiste later admits to Will she has never been kissed. Will confronts the Glee Club and everybody learns why Sam(and Tina) imagine coach Beiste. This is also when we get the Santana quote “This wouldn’t happen if everybody just put out”. The boys make it up to coach Beiste by doing their mash-up of “Stop! In the name of Love/Free Your Mind”.
Next interesting storyline is Puck and Artie. Puck gets paroled from juvie after agreeing to do community service, which he tells Artie would be helping a cripple(aka him). The first thing they do together is busk for money, they do “One Love”. They make around $300, Puck notices Artie wanting Brittany and decides to help him by going on a double date with Santana. Puck and Artie get along until Puck wants to dine and dash, he leaves Artie after Artie didn’t want to do it. Puck and Artie later make up when Puck is threatened with being sent back to Juvie(his parole officer thought he was helping “Crips” as in gang members).
The most memorable storyline is from Kurt. After more bullying from Karofsky(no Azimio) Kurt gets sick and tired of all the bullying he takes. He decides to check out the all boys school that will be their competition for sectionals. There he finds Blaine who is everything he is not; he is popular, well liked, and not picked on by anyone. Kurt is awestruck when Blaine and company sing “Teenage Dream”. He is also openly gay. Blaine inspires Kurt to find courage in himself to stand up to bullies. When Kurt later confronts Karofsky in the locker room, Karosky kisses him. This was one of the highlights of this episode, Max Adler did a terrific job in this scene. Kurt looks shocked by this and tells Blaine who comes over to try to help. Karofsky denies anything happened and we are left with Blaine buying lunch for Kurt.
Overall, another solid episode for “Glee”. Also, just so you know the girls sang “Start me up/Livin on a prayer” which was pretty good but I had some issues with the camera work. I would give this episode a good old “B”.
p.s. Boys totally won that mash-up duel.
Memoriable quotes: Rachel: “Spies!” Puck: “They kept taking my waffles.” Puck: “lego my Eggo!”

Hello there, fellow Gleeks! As you will learn today(October 19, 2010) there will be no new episode of “Glee” airing today due to a little sport known as baseball. Fret not, fellow Glee fans as there will be a “Rocky Horror Picture Show” themed episode airing next week. Trailers for the next episode suggest the Glee Club will be putting on a “Rocky Horror Picture Show” musical. I will watch the original “Rocky Horror Picture Show” soon and post a quick synopsis and review here hopefully by the end of the week. Otherwise, try checking out “No Ordinary Family” it’s decent and if you were a “Heroes” fan then you should like this show.
In other Glee related news there is a issue of GQ magazine coming up soon with Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron and Lea Michele on the cover! Just have to say that it’s all very sexy. I will not post them or a link because of one good reason. You will need time and plenty of fresh air to see it, trust me your minds will be thoroughly blown away. Shippers of Lea and Cory be warned this is powerful stuff. Also, for you fellow Canadians out there Cory will be hosting the Gemini Awards this year.
Anyways here’s a bit of a preview for next week.
