Glee-Cap: Guilty Pleasures.
by Robert Lawlor - Mar 21, 2013

Guilty Pleasures - everyone has them, even if some of us aren't all that ashamed of our love of those things people tend to deny they like. Me? I love Grease 2 and I'm not in the least bit ashamed, because well - it's the best ever. Tonight, Glee celebrates all things guilty pleasure - all those songs on your iPod you claim you "don't know where they came from" or that song you change on the radio dial unless you're alone, then you jam away like you're in it to win it. Gather ye, guilty pleasure lovers and haters - it's time to Face the Music. Wham! Blaine continues to crush on Sam, but when he confronts Sam about how he spotted him stealing pasta, Sam reveals he has a guilty pleasure for pasta art - making pasta art of Emma Stone, Leanne Rimes, and even Kurt. When Sam asks Blaine what his guilty pleasure is, Blaine fumbles and says 'Wham', when in fact he means Sam, but this prompts the duo known as Blam to propose a guilty pleasure week for glee club since Mr. Schue is 'out sick'. Kicking off the guilty pleasure goodness is Sam and Blaine with 'Wake Me Up (Before You Go-Go)" - all Technicolor 80's glory! BLAM! Brittany calls Kitty on her bitchy ways, and gets her on Fondue for Two and they dish guilty pleasures (including all of the Bring It On films), but Kitty's guiltiest pleasure is kept between the two and the fondue. Kurt's acting class calls for embarrassing moments, but Kurt won't admit to owning and using a boyfriend pillow as his greatest embarrassing secret, but one would think sweating to the oldies with Richard Simmons would be the worst, but we'll just try and forget that one.

CABARET LIFE NYC: It's Raining Women -- Reviews of 12 Shows From a Cabaret Fall

I hadn't planned on doing that again, but this fall there were so many shows that once again I couldn't keep up. but at least I've beaten my self-imposed deadline New Year's Eve deadline of posting these reviews of 12 shows, all staged between September-December by lovely, attractive women (okay, so one is a gender-bender) of varying talents and levels on the cabaret depth chart, from established stars to MAC and Bistro Award-winners to comeback 'kids' to interesting beginners and occasional performers who are in the game to follow their bliss. Whether their performances were rave-worthy, earning of qualified praise, or not quite up to snuff, they all deserve kudos for taking the plunge. (more...)
