Kevin McHale: Be My Boyfriend

photo cred | Refinery29

Ever since I started watching Glee, I have always had a mini crush on Kevin McHale’s nerdy character Artie. It’s hasn’t been an easy year for the entire cast and especially with the news coming out that the season will end after next year, but I have a lot of faith in the actors and actresses that have been in the show from the start and I’m hoping that a bright future will be ahead for all of them.

On another note, (the reason why I’m even writing this post at all) Kevin McHale recently did an interview with Refinery 29 and answered a question about his favorite date spots in LA.

“This may not be romantic to anyone else, but I love In-N-Out and I love planes. And, if you go to the In-N-Out by LAX not during rush hour, and you sit on the grass, and watch the planes take off and eat burgers, I think that’s pretty great. I like the Observatory a lot, too. I think the view from there is incredible. I think it’s one of those places in L.A. that a lot of people forget about. I guess I just geek out there. I’m a little bit of a space nerd.”

OH MY GOSH, is this paragraph not describing all the things I love? In-N-Out, airports/flying, SPACE.

So which one of my industry friends can hook this up because Kevin and I could be a perfect match.

Nerd Herd

On the season finale of The Glee Project, my favorite contestant Cameron returned for the final episode. While I was extremely happy that Damien took home the win, I don’t think I paid that much attention to him as much as I focused on the scenes Cameron was actually in. Bree and I agreed last night that while it is obvious that he is talented, there is definitely something that draws our eye towards him throughout the entire episode. Sure, it’s his voice and the hipster attire, but another part of me thinks that it is because he represents a group of people  that has never been a part of the in crowd: the nerds. There’s no one like him on Glee or even on television right now.

As we all know, I’ve got a pretty sweet spot for the nerds – as do many girls. Can you really find a reason to not like one? I mean, have you ever seen a douchey nerd? And I’m not talking about those pretentious characters in television shows, I mean in real life. They don’t exist! They never cheat, except for that one episode of Saved By the Bell. They are known for being the shy smart types. They’ve got a type of style that isn’t mainstream and they always seem to know what’s going on before everyone else. A blogger’s dream right? Today, I learned from HelloGiggles that there’s actually a distinction between geek, nerd and dork. Who knew, right?

In short:

“Geek- Smart but not awkward
Nerd- Smart and awkward
Dork- Smart in less useful areas, awkward but proud regardless”

Feel free to read the rest of the article here:

What I also recognized today was the similarities between a nerd and a hipster. The same transition process occurs when scenesters become hipster. In this case, you start out being a nerd and develop into a full-grown adult-sized hipster. I’ve decided to highlight some of my favorite nerds in this post, but I’ll let you be the judge as to whether or not they are really as hip as they appear to be.

[Cameron Mitchell – The Glee Project right]

I think I’ve talked enough about Cameron in the text above so I won’t exhaust you anymore. He is basically the proudest nerd I have ever seen promoting the “Nerd Herd” in his YouTube videos, on the television series, and even in his music.

Self-explanatory.

2011 Golden Globe Awards

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa

Chocolate brown and gold sequins are the perfect combination for this Golden Globe gown. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Olivia look this good! I also loved that she wore her hair down with her bangs since we are typically used to seeing it done up.
