crushing

I have a new crush, and I have Tina Fey and Ugly Betty to thank for it.

Rounding up my 30 Rock Season 2 marathon last week, and there was this cute guy who played Tina Fey’s boytoy and turned one of the characters (Judah Friedlander) gay. Not gay for life, just gay for him. “I’m gay for Jamie,” he says. “No, that’s not a thing,” Tinay Fey tells him. “You can’t be gay for just one person. Unless you’re a lady, and you meet Ellen.”

But apparently, being gay for just one person is a thing, or can be, especially if he looks as adorably cute as this:

would you want to be gay for Jamie? (played by actor/Musician Val Emmich)

Anyway, a few days later I was watching the latest episode of Ugly Betty, and there he was again, playing Betty’s new neighbor, struggling musician Jesse.

The 30 Rock episode probably aired what, last year, and the Ugly Betty episode, just last week, and yet, I saw both of them over a couple of days. Coincidence? No, I don’t think so. It’s fate🙂

I’m now hunting up his songs, and they’re good.  Seriously. Here’s one sample, enjoy.
Hurt More Later – Val Emmich

Conversation comes naturally
He holds your hand real carefully
Butterflies are fluttering
Your courage is sputtering
Cuz you never win

You’re finally there
When your heart starts to wear
Cuz you know how this ends
Passion fades, you pretend
So you’re walking away
To let perfection remain
You’ll never see this unwind
Your love frozen in time

You try your best to take it slow
But it feels good to lose control
It’s moving faster everyday
You wish it could just stay this way
But you know it won’t

You’re finally there
When your heart starts to wear
Cuz you know how this ends
Passion fades, you pretend
So you’re walking away
To let perfection remain
You’ll never see this unwind
Your love frozen in time

It hurts now but it will hurt more later
It hurts now but it will hurt more later
Hurt more later
Much more much later
