I'm basically going to use tumblr to express my appreciation for Max Adler and my disgust with Glee and the seething monster of superficiality and hypocrisy known as the Glee fandom. No one in my non-internet life watches Glee, so my rage baffles them. Therefore, I needed a place to vent.
I don't watch Glee anymore, and will only return for any episode Dave might be in. (So yeah, that means I'm never watching glee again.) However, just like a a putrid smell in your house that you just can't seem to locate, my rage at the show and its writers has remained. Hence this blog.
The only Glee character I care about is Dave Karofsky. Glee has treated both Dave and Max like absolute shit, eliminating my ability to give a crap about anything else on the show.
I loathe both klaine and blaine.
If you do not like Dave you should not be following me. If you think Kurtofsky is a "toxic" relationship you should not be following me. I have no patience left for the ignorant and hypocritical bullshit that some people continue to spout about these 2 things.There are no perfect angel baby cupcake characters on glee. NONE. All of them have done shitty things to other people. But most of them never actually sincerely apologized and completely stopped their shitty behavior like Dave did. Most of them never changed for the better. Dave did.
My opinion on switched at birth- one of the most cliched shows I've come across. I wish I could take Tank and put him on another show that actually appreciates characters that aren't bland and doesn't use them as throwaway plot devices for the reunion of shitty couples. (This show almost rivals glee in the pandering department. And the hypocrisy regarding cheating is astounding- when Bay gets cheated on, it's awful and life-stopping. But when Bay cheats- it gets quickly erased. Screw the guy she cheated on- the shitty couple is back together! )
Also, fuck you Brad Falchuk.
Being outed, bullied, losing your friends, losing your school, being told by your mom you have a disease, and trying to hang yourself IS NOT EQUAL TO "it's clear-he's out now, he's okay, no more story to tell." How did you ever manage to pass a Writing 101 class? And more importantly, how have you convinced yourself that exploiting LGBTQ suicide is perfectly okay?
I’m not a nostalgic person. I barely kept anything from my childhood, I don’t like snapping a million picture, I don’t hold on to things.
But the one exception seems to be Dave Karofsky. I just can’t let him go and yes, Glee is crap and I don’t want anything to do with it but just the thought of seeing the character again will make me want to watch.
Even if his storyline is ridiculous, offensive, botched and stupid. Even if he doesn’t sing. Even if he turns out to just be an instrument in the Klaine reunion. Even if they mess up beyond my wildest speculations. Somehow any and all argument fails to turn me away.
I’m done with Glee, but I’m never done with Dave. And it’s a very frustrating fact. If only he could have come from a good show, and stayed on that show.
So the cast of Saugatuck Cures did a radio interview yesterday morning (since they premiered the movie last night in Palm Springs). Obviously Max wasn’t there since he would have been on his way to/ already at the glee set. They didn’t really reveal anything new about the film, but the cast was pretty enjoyable to listen to, and my interest in seeing this movie intensified even more. The film’s EP did however mention that Max “has an amazing last season on glee” and that there “are some shockers coming” in regard to Max’s glee storyline. I realize that this is just standard promotional practice of giving vague “exciting” descriptions of things, and that he’s probably just talking about this blainofsky stuff that everybody is reporting, but I’m choosing (for today at least) to pretend that Max told the EP that there is more than just the blaine shocker in Dave’s story, and that something really good/different/exciting is going to happen for Dave.
Also, I burst out laughing when one of the radio show’s hosts knew that glee was in its final season, but proudly proclaimed that he had never watched an episode.
Being “mad” at Max for playing blaine’s boyfriend because you hate blaine is just as entitled and selfish as klaine fans who are angry at Max for playing blaine’s boyfriend because they hate Dave.
Not wanting to watch season 6 because you’ve wiped your hands of glee or because you are convinced that Dave will be ruined is one thing.
But to actually try to blame Max (someone who makes a living off of acting and names many of the cast as friends) for agreeing to come back is utter bullshit.
You’re not getting what you want, so it’s Max’s fault. How is that any different from klainers?
Can we please just get some behind the scenes pics of Max.
Inadvertently saw some final season Glee wank. I stopped caring about that show a couple of seasons ago, but…
I’m absolutely horrified that the return of Dave Karofsky is causing such an ugly meltdown in a certain ship fandom. Seriously, the pseudo “we totes care about the gays and bullying is super naughty” partyline has never been more of a joke.
The way Glee handled his storyline after his suicide attempt was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me, and I know that his return won’t honor the journey he took…but to see all of the hate for an LGBTQ character who turned his life around is revolting, and the bullying of the actor on social media is beyond comprehension.
Seriously, it’s all just gross.
"As far as what they say, it is sad and tragic that people out there don’t think that Karofsky can change. And there are those really awful tweets or messages where they really want Karofsky to kill himself or harm himself just so Kurt and Blaine can be together. It’s really sad, and it imitates life, where people are rooting for someone to harm themselves to protect their own beliefs."
More than 2 and a half years later and this Billboard interview quote of Max’s remains completely true.
In a few months, we’ll see just how much Dave has changed, and evolved into a better person. But this group of hateful hypocritical people are in the exact same spot they were in in 2012. They haven’t learned anything.
