Before I begin this segment of Nerd Rant, I must issue a “formal” apology to all of my musicians out there:
I’M SO SORRY. I’M SO, SO, SO, SO, SO SORRY. I COULDN’T HELP IT, IT DRAGGED ME IN AND NOW I’M TRAPPED.
Well, now that you all probably think I got addicted to some kind of drug… I AM!
My dear friends and odd stranger, I, TheyCallMeDame, am addicted to Glee.
I am a Gleek.
The thing is, Glee goes against all of my principles as a musician and especially as a proud vocalist. They take the best singers and rarely ever give them solos, and the people they do give solos, they are so autotuned that the music producer adds synthesizer to disguise the robot-on-crack sound that autotune gives a singer when they hold a note for too long or slide from one note to another (or you could be like Rebecca Black and use so much autotune that no one can tell what her real voice sounds like, except that it is extremely nasally).
But yes! I have been roped in.
Even though I get insulted when they cover brilliant songs and butcher them completely, totally making me want to cry, I still can’t stop watching.
As a musician, I am ashamed to call myself a Gleek (BUT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF).
And the plot lines are so cheesy and the drama is slightly predictable but what’s a girl to do?
So, I’m sorry to my musician friends, and I’m sorry to my mom, who patiently watches all the episodes with me so I “don’t feel too bad.”
And I’m sorry, but I’m a Gleek.
This segment of Nerd Rant has come to a close; please stand by.
