Happy Birthday to us!
Simply put, today is the one year anniversary of the debut of LinkFrogging. What started out as a fun idea, has grown into one of our most looked at features and a highlight of my week.
The boys and I are always on the lookout for fun, offbeat stories to bring you. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy hunting them down.
Of course, no discussion of LinkFrogging would be complete without a mention of the cheesecake, our weekly visual aid to help the links go down.
Earlier this week, our very first cheesecake, Kaley Cuoco, revealed that she had a behind the scenes relationship with co-star Johnny Galecki. I wonder how John Ritter would have felt about that?
What does that have to do with anything? Not much really. It just goes to prove that, given the right circumstances, you can draw lines between any events.
On to this week’s cheesecake. Say hello to Lea Michele from Glee. Ms. Michele plays Rachel Berry, the lead on the America’s favorite glee club inspired sing along.
Glee hit new ratings highs this week with the appearance of guest star, Britney Spears. Soundtracks have been released. Tours have been undertaken. Jane Lynch won an Emmy for her portrayal of evil PE coach, Sue Sylvester. The show has become a monster hit for Fox, America’s home for football and karaoke.
I’ve heard the fans of this show refererred to as Gleetards. That doesn’t seem fair. As we say around here, “everyone is a geek about something.” Yes, I’m looking at you fantasy football guy. And I’m looking at you Twilight fan. And I’m looking at you Sex and the City movie goers.
Fans call themselves Gleeks. I like this much better. Its a clever way of commenting on their fandom and keeps with the show’s themes. Of course, they aren’t the first Gleeks in pop culture history are they? Don’t remember? Shame on you. You’ll have to wait until after the links for bonus Gleeky goodness. (more…)
