Michael Arden love thread #1
Posted: 1/20/08 at 10:32pm
So I pretty much just discovered "Bare" like.. yesterday (haha). And although I've vaguely known about Michael for a while now, I'm basically in LOVE with him now. The man has one of the most glorious voices I have ever heard!! And the EASE with which he can just up and belt out a tune like it's nothing... it's absolutely ridiculous. Hearing him sing, I actually start to question whether or not he has any limit to his voice whatsoever! haha

But beyond that, from everything I've seen and heard (which is quite a bit now.. I've pretty much been studying up on all things Michael today hehe), he's also an insanely brilliant actor. Trule, "See Me" is one of the most emotional songs I have ever seen/heard. (And I'm not gay or anything, so I can't even really clame to relate! haha.) Granted part of that must be credited to the poignancy of the song itself, but Michael's performance of it was just... perfect.


Oh and um. Can we say ADORABLE to the EXTREME? <3 *sigh*
I don't need a life that's normal. That's way too far away. But something next to normal would be okay. Something next to normal is what I'd like to try. Close enough to normal to get by.

Not much to add here, but you've got it right on all counts. Although I've never seen Michael (or 'bare') live, he ACTS a song better than anyone I've heard in years. And he does it effortlessly, with beautiful (though not over-done) diction and tone.

And yes...he IS adorable to the extreme.

Thanks for that video. What a gorgeous performance.

That River video was actually the first thing I ever heard of him singing, and by about 40 seconds into the songs I was like "yup, he gets a spot on my list of top 5 favorite voices ever". 40 seconds in. He's just amazing like that :P

so yeah, I know most people who care have probably already seen this, but:

seriously, why is he so cute??

"'Naked Boys Singing'- never seen it, kinda want to! But I kinda see that like at him every day.. so.." :P


and then of course the follow up to that:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0dBy8lIq8Y&feature=related

good thing I thought they were being serious until like the third time I had watched it, when I finally went "OOOOH, they're totally being sarcastic!" hahaha. (And for the record, when Jeffery first put it up, he hadn't explained all of it in the description. I wasn't just being really ignorant and not reading it haha)

Did anybody watch Michael Wednesday night on "Cashmere Mafia"? He was absolutely adorable! If you missed it you can see it on line at abc. I just love him!

I did catch it and it made me sick. Great, they got one of the most talented actors under 30 -- arguably one of the best living voices on the planet -- and they had him skip, prance and flit his wrists about as an ineffectual gay during fashion week. It's offensive.

So you know what's kind of sad?? I think I must have watched the Grey's Anatomy season 2 finale like at LEAST 15 times- not even an exaggeration- and I JUST recently realized who Michael was in it. haha. Granted the minute I watched the full thing KNOWING who he was and looking for him, I totally realized. But just.. you'd think that, considering he is one of the cutest human beings on the planet, and the fact that I very clearly remembered his characters storyline that I would have remembered him! haha. But yeah, for anyone else who may not know- he was the wussy boyfriend who ducked behind his girlfriend when the shooting started. And he was totally adorable, as always :P SO funny. Thank god for that storyline in the midst of all the intensity of that episode.


*goes to watch Cashmere Mafia*

edit: Okay though I agree his unbeleivable talents are pretty much being wasted with a show like that, still, why is he SO CUTE? Omg <3

(oh and um, HI Christine Ebersole and Mary Testa! haha)

Oh em gee! Cutest picture ever (then again, I say that every time I see a new picture of Michael, so it might just be until the next)...

What do you guys think of Michael on The Return of Jezebel James? Personally I'd definitely like to see more of him, but then again, at least he got more screen time than those 15 seconds or so on Cashmere Mafia...
