I still want happier resolution for the other LGBT storyline on Glee, but I guess where they're now with it is realistic.

Weren't sure if you meant 2014, since y'know...its the 2014 thread. But you're completely welcome here!
But since you ARE a 1L, perhaps you could tell us about the Columbia gay community?

+1 on Blaine's hotness. yum.

I LOVED this week's episode of Glee, and not just because of <spoiler!>. I really enjoyed the original songs mixed in. I hope they do more of this. It helps make the plot more believable, a vast improvement over contortion of the story each week to fit in various songs (which got super old in the second half of season 1, IMO).

ETA: On topic: is there a one-stop resource about how the T14s conduct their OCIs? Or, barring that, does anyone have a set of links (one for each) handy? My understanding is that all except UVa do a no-screen lottery, but I was hoping for more detail (questions like when they get resumes, class rank allowed, etc).

When I saw the scene, a French-speaking friend seated next to me turned and exclaimed, "Ah, mais c'était troooop parfait le premier basier de Kurt!" Ironic use of hyperbole in French -- it actually was too perfect. And I have to admit, seeing Kurt's first (real) kiss like that, continuing this trend of Glee fulfilling the audience's wishes (see: big girls and Lauren Zizes being pursued by Puck), was slightly painful because ... it just doesn't happen like that in real life. (Do people find television wish fulfillment exciting or slightly consternating? Perhaps I lack the imagination to embrace Glee on its terms...?)

Anyway, the original songs were ... utterly unremarkable: microwaveable pop ready for primetime, which does something of a disservice to the message of individualism that this show extols weekly. Both songs have charted on iTunes downloads as #1 and #2 this week -- sigh. America.

In sum, not one of my fave Glee episodes...but did brighten what has been an otherwise unfortunate week. =]


i think you got it right that television wish fulfillment is exciting in that it allows the audience to live somewhat vicariously through the character. it's why people generally do not like characters they cannot relate to at all, because nothing that happens to that character is transferable to that viewer. i watch glee to take a break from life/work, where i have to think a lot. when i'm on break, i want something to satisfy my simpler urges, not something that will engage me to think.

Hey LGBTers--any updates on the admissions front?

Anyone wanna be at Columbia or NYU ASW?
