Today, I woke up and my internet connection was slower than Lance Armstrong’s package in a two-testicled race because I live out in the beachside boonies where the best internet service providers go by the wicked generic name of ‘Mediacom.’ And because we got two inches of ice last night, coupled with the fact that MEDIACOM BLOWS GOATS (DO YOU HEAR THAT, MEDIACOM?), sitting here with my laptop waiting to establish a connection faster than 1MBps is like watching paint dry, just .. duller.
As for the video, I’m the first to say that I absolutely detest the show Glee, but I’m willing to admit that this total cornball move of a video totally made my morning – but only because it’s the first thing that’s run on my connection today that hasn’t incurred a debilitating interruption.
Leave your comedic quips in the comments, guys.

Although the hit show was filming it’s super important “post-Superbowl” episode, production came to a halt this week on the Glee set after several folks got sick with tonsillitis. I didn’t even know people got tonsillitis anymore. That sounds so old timey and obsolete to me, like small pox.
Production is set to start again on Monday and the time that they missed will be made up for in early January, but damn… Those kids need to be staying healthy. More vitamin C at craft services and less water bottle sharing, you guys.

The Trevor Project held a live event in Los Angeles last night and no performance could have been more perfect for this show/this year than Katy Perry and Darren Criss performing Katy’s song “Teenage Dream” together. Of course Darren famously covered the song on Glee earlier this year, so he delivered his portion of the song flawlessly.
Do you hear that sound? That’s the sound of 20,000 homosexuals imploding with joy after hearing this version of their anthem.

Gwyneth Paltrow played a substitute Spanish teacher desperately trying to get on her students level on last night’s episode of Glee, and in the process wound up insulting the entire Lohan family. Damn.
Out of context, Gwyneth’s character cracking jokes about Lindsay’s history of rehab and mental illness seems totally mean-spirited, but the entire scene was about a lady trying to get down on the level of some teenagers. It’s easy to go after Lindsay Lohan (I should know, right?), but it makes sense for the character.
Still, Dina Lohan had this response, “Our lawyers are sending a letter to Glee on the grounds that the show allegedly defamed the actress who, by all accounts, is working hard on her recovery.”
Allegedly is right, girlfriend. Did you even see the episode yet?

A lot of people got all up in arms over those racy pictures in GQ of some ladies from Glee, and understandably so – I’m a huge fan of the show, and even though I knew that everyone was of age, I still felt this intense, inexplicable creepy feeling when I saw Rachel trying to be all sexy next to some lockers. But now there’s the possibility of things getting a little more intense, because Playgirl wants to get involved.
A rep from Playgirl told E! that they want to take some dirty pictures of Chord Overstreet, the beautiful 21-year-old pictured above, and Mark Salling, the 28-year-old who plays Puck on the show. They’re willing to pay up to $100,000 to each of the boys, and they’re also willing to allow the men to leave some clothes on. When E! asked if they’d want to involve the likes of Matthew Morrison and Cory Monteith, they replied with “Uh, yeah, but, you know, they’re more adorkable.” Well, you’re missing the mark with this one, Playgirl, because judging by the entire musical theatre department of my college, Mr. Schuester would sell oodles of nudey mags.
So what would you guys think if this happened (which, for the record, I really don’t think it will)? Would you be equally creeped out, or is there some sort of double standard? I think a big factor would be the setting. Like if it was just a picture of Chord Overstreet on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace, that’d probably be a lot more ok than some sort of classroom shot featuring Cory Monteith and Mark Salling being all “hot for teacher” with Matthew Morrison, right?

Ugh. I know. I’m obsessing over this story. Sorry. I’ll try and control myself after today, but I just really love Katie Couric’s statements about the Glee photos that were shot by Terry Richardson for GQ.
In the video above, Katie said during “Notebook”, “As Seth Meyers might say on Weekend Update, Really?!These very adult photos of young women who perform in a family show just seem so un-’Glee’-like. The program is already edgy in the right ways, these images don’t really — in my humble opinion — fit the ‘Glee’ gestalt. I know there are a lot of bigger problems in the world right now, but still, as Mr. Schuester might say to the club, I’m really disappointed.”
Katie’s statement kind of sums it of perfectly. Aside from how pervy feeling the images are, the mood of the photos just seemed to make a mockery of a show that’s already so celebrated. They degraded the quality of their work.
