• Top 50 Favorite Glee Songs

    In 2009, the FOX network premiered the teen musical dramedy Glee, created by executive producer Ryan Murphy. The pilot episode aired after the American Idol 8 finale on May 19th, 2009. Glee aimed to shed a light on high school stereotypes, and they covered every last one of them: from the gay guy (Chris Colfer's Kurt), to the crippled kid (Kevin McHale’s Artie), to the curvy powerhouse (Amber Riley’s Mercedes), to the Gothic Asian (Jenna Uskhowitz’s Tina), to the dumb blonde (Heather Morris’s Brittany), to the dude that barely got a speaking part or even a solo, for that matter (he left after the first season to embark on the solo career that never happened).

    Along the way, however, Ryan Murphy began to realize that his characters were high school students, who weren’t going to stay in the glee club forever, and he wanted to keep them on the show by any means possible.

    In season four, the show split its storylines between the New Directions in Lima, Ohio, and the graduates’ college lives in New York City. …
  • My Favorite Foreign Hits of 2011

    2011 is not a bad year for music because of the diversity of hits released this year, coming from different sources . Sadly though, there aren't a lot of standout artists and songs this year, making it easier for me to filter out my choices. Many sites are also proclaiming the death (it's probably just hibernation [--,] ) of rock this year (but at least we're fine, according to one site.)

    Enough with depressing news. Here are my favorite tunez last year:
    Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song
    The last two years were a banner year for the half-Filipino singer and songwriter, making a lot of achievement for the typical metrics for success: A Grammy, #1 hits and album sales; he even sang the main theme for part 1 of the Breaking Dawn movie. And of all his hits, choosing this track is a no-brainer. For a white-collar worker like me, it's a dangerous song to be listening to on a rest day. I can relate to the lyrics, and the original music video was also very entertaining despite its simplicity (it looks like most Youtube videos…
  • Glee: Best of Season Two

    14 May 2011, 14:53 de WarrenM2008

    In less than two weeks, we will have the season 2 finale of FOX's "Glee". To recap the progress of the Glee Cast from the beginning to where we left off from "Prom Queen", Finn and Rachel were a couple for the first half of the season until Sectionals, though they still possess feelings for each other. Kurt had his first two kisses: one from a football bully, and the next from a stronger relationship with Blaine. Also, he went to Dalton Academy and back. Brittany started dating Artie, who was dumped by Tina for Mike. Recently, they broke up after Artie called her "stupid", and Santana threw her hat in the ring, expressing the feeling for her that we figured were there. Quinn, fresh off pregnancy, rejoined the Cheerios, but voluntarily left along with Santana and Brittany after Sue's idea for a stunt is too much. Sue, on the other hand, continued to destroy the New Directions, mostly to failures. She threw a tantrum after her failed attempt of shooting a cheerleader out of a cannon…
