1. Recorded this video before heading out to catch Derek Evry and Alex Vans pay tribute to Cake and Beck at Iota Club in Arlington, VA. 

    Fun Fact: This song was inspired by a quote from a Pretty Little Liars episode from Season One. Aria says it to her dad, She said, “It’s easier to walk away then to fight for what you really want.” I thought that was a clever choice of phrasing and tried to incorporate it into the hook after already establishing a couple verses worth of lyrics over the chord progression. I’m happy with how it turned out!

    LYRICS:

    Got an ache inside my chest whenever he starts to speak

    But it’s comfort and sweet memories that I choose to keep

    Inside my head and my heart while they duel so tenderly

    Over a love I’d like to pretend is somehow still within my reach

    Fight for what you want

    Don’t you ever walk away

    Fight for how you feel

    Please promise you won’t walk away

    Don’t walk away

    Don’t you ever walk away

    Got a soft spot for romance but I really have no clue

    How to find true love, make it stay, and examine the truth

    Well my head and my heart keep trying their luck

    They know they’ve got something to prove

    That’s why I’m done running, done running from you

    Done running from you

    Fight for what you want

    Don’t you ever walk away

    Don’t walk away

    Fight for how you feel 

    Please promise you won’t walk away

    Don’t walk away [x2]

    Don’t walk away

    [If] it’s easier to leave 

    Then it is to stay

    Fight for what you want

    Don’t you ever walk away

    Fight for how you feel

    Please promise you won’t walk away

    Don’t walk away

    Fight for what you want

    Don’t you ever walk away

    Don’t walk away

    Fight for how you feel

    Please promise you won’t walk away

    Don’t walk away

    Don’t walk away

    Got a soft spot for romance but I really have no clue

    Over the last five years, the series has followed a dynamic group of high school students from the halls of McKinley to the mean streets of New York City, as they embarked on life after high school. This season, after her humiliating failure as a TV actress, New Directions’ original star, RACHEL BERRY (Golden Globe Award nominee Lea Michele), comes home to Lima to figure out what she wants to do next. Upon discovering that SUE SYLVESTER (Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch) has banished the arts at McKinley, Rachel takes it upon herself to reinstate and lead the glee club. Meanwhile, BLAINE ANDERSON (Darren Criss), SAM EVANS (Chord Overstreet) and WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison) have all found surprising new gigs in Ohio. Throughout the season, other alumnae also will return to McKinley.

    Interested to see how this plays out.

  8. "In the end, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed cast your eyes to the summer sky and the stars strung across the velvety night and when a shooting star streams through the blackness turning night and today, make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did." Yes you did, Robin. Yes you did.

    RIP Robin. Thank you for bringing joy to all of us.

    The repopulation of McKinley High has begun!

    Glee is set to introduce at least five new characters — all of them McKinley sophomores — in its sixth and final season, TVLine has learned exclusively. The recurring newbies include:

    RODERICK | Chubby and shy with a voice like Otis Redding, his looks don’t match with his talent. Described as, “a true goober.” He’s the show’s new underdog.

    SPENCER | He’s the new resident “football stud” who just so happens to possess an incredible voice. He’s also gay. But, per the casting notice, “he’s post-Glee gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.”

    JANE | Righteous, ambitious and unconventionally pretty, she’s funny because she doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. She wanted to be a Warbler but tradition kept her from joining so she jumps ship to the New Directions.

    MASON AND MADISON |  Male and female twin Cheerios. They’re super-positive and extremely weird. Mason gives off a gay vibe (spoiler alert: he’s not).

    Back in June,  series co-creator Ryan Murphy told TVLine that the show will shift back to its original conceit in Season 6 — and these five roles appear to back that up.

    “We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love,” he shared. “I’m sort of reinvigorated about it. It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”

    Murphy’s quotes — as well as fellow EP Brad Falchuk’s assertion to TVLine that “there will be a lot going on in Lima” in Season 6 — all but confirmed speculation that much of the action will once again take place at McKinley.

    Glee is set to return to Fox’s schedule at midseason.

    Interested to see how they incorporate the new recurring characters with the already established starring cast. I know Glee hasn’t been the same since Cory’s passing but I’ll be damned if I gave up on the show now. I shall watch it ‘til the very end!
