GLEE-ful sounds?

Hello. My name is Lara. I am a Gleek. {Hello, Lara}

They had me at the “L”.

I remember thinking to myself, when the teasers for Glee started popping up in the summer of 09′, “Squee a show for us dorks!”. Seeing-as-how there hasn’t been a decent Trek in years I was sort of stoked. I own my inner “loser”, folks. Though I can rock with the best of them, I also know far too much about the space-time continuum, epic poetry and impact of comic book characters on the social ecology of the modern collective psychology to ever be considered a “cool kid”. Little did I know that I’d be as taken by the show as I am.

When The Mamas were approached about Mark Salling’s (aka Puck who’s hairstyle my 16 year old has now adopted, RAWK!) debut solo album* I clawed my way over the other mamas to get the gig. Turns out said “gig” was actually a well thought out video interview -not by me, notice- with Mark, the music in snippets as background. See for yourself.

* Fronting for Jericho, Salling has released his own music before. I like how he folds acoustic guitar in with electric, melding it together with a sort of folk music back beat. The vocals though, meh. Don’t get me wrong -  I think Mark has got some serious pipes.  Aptly the new album, which is due to drop October 25, 2010, is titled Pipe Dreams. His renditions on the show, of some classic tunes like Neal Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” and Billy Joel’s “Only The Good Die Young” are spot on.

There is no doubt that the man can handle an axe. The question, though, is can he carry this on his own? That remains to been seen, but I can tell you I’ll be amongst the Gleek Nation as we turn out in droves to pick up the new tunes.

    I try, try, try, but just can not get into this show. I admit I’ve just started watching, though, because my son loves it. Maybe it’ll grow on me?
