With all the negativity that I tend to spew on this blog, I thought it was time that I wrote about something positive. So, here it is... I LOVE Fox Network's new show Glee!!!
I love it! I love it! I love it!
Today, I got to thinking why I love it so much. I think people who consider themselves GLEEKs (the name those of us who love the show have adopted) do so because they relate to the characters. We tend to have had a hard high school life. Often made fun of or alienated. Never accepted for who we were or are. Never quite fitting in.
Which is why I love the show so much. I know what it feels like to be part of a group of kids who are laughed at for being talented at something. Or for just for looking different. Or for liking things that are not popular. It hurt. And having this show makes us feel like we are being recognized for it. It doesn't hurt that the music is fun. It's all remakes but they all seem to work. A compilation album is supposed to be released. I'll be in line. Or at least on iTunes.
So, there you have it. Something positive. I am a Gleek. And I am proud. Later.
