Green Room - Week 29 - Day 2

In case you were too busy burning your entire Joss Whedon collection and missed what happened here - there were results from the last poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1041345.html

and there was the new topics: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1041472.html in which I brought back one of my personal favorites, the Portfolio challenge!

If you've been too outraged about Peter David saying you shouldn't try to get Nazis fired (because he's had their supporters come after him and he doesn't want to operate on that level) that you've missed details of Whedon's divorce come out from his ex-wife, I'm sure there are links all around the internet.

Or refer to your own messy breakups/divorces in the past. I'm sure there were some particularly choice words said on both sides. I know I personally can say that. (If he really did, and say, those things, he's pretty much a scumbag, as far as his personal life goes. My problem is that people keep saying he *admitted to it*, and so far, he hasn't.)

If you've been too busy thinking about the choice words said in the past, there was also Trump, Charlottesville, Don't Go Back (to Clarksville) and Wasting Another Year, Pardoning Sheriff Joe and Saving Private Paul Ryan.

Some of those might actually from the same song.

What are some of YOUR favorite current internet outrages that have been spreading like wildfire in your circles?

and how do they relate to the Portfolio challenge? (not really, I just wanted to bring that back around full circle)

I pay no attention to Joss Whedon, so I have no idea what you're first sentence is referencing.

*checks Google*

I'm not paying attention either. Supposedly he's getting divorced and OMG CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF HE'S NEVER SUPPORTED THE FEMINIST AGENDA or something like that. The only "outrage" I've seen about it are posts saying they're not surprised, then enumerating things he's said over the years about it.

I'm getting a lot more posts from stuff I follow as opposed to people. I haven't been posting much either. I think everyone is exhausted from internet outrage.

"I think everyone is exhausted from internet outrage."

The people I've seen seem to have plenty of energy left!

Except for them, of course, lol.

The Portfolio challenge is daunting, and almost makes me glad I've been eliminated. Good luck to all!

That hasn't popped up in a loooooooooooong time. I almost forgot it existed. And yes, it makes me happy that I'm not playing now either, LOL.

Okay, so I am not a wuss for thinking so...thanks for the validation, Rayaso!
I wish you weren't eliminated, selfishly, I'd love to see what you'd come up with!

It would be a combination of desperation and panic, followed by banging my head against the keyboard -- the usual stuff.

People have been saying this season was too easy.

I figured I'd make the winner work a bit for the title!

I'm not going to say much about this right now but I will say this... the folks that DELETED their LJs when they left the competition are making life difficult.

Yes, I can go back and find the email connected to every comment I made, in order to read (SOME) of those entries again but that's a lot more unwieldy than you might expect...

However, if writer put in a cut for an entry, and deleted their account, the rest of that entry is gone, even using the email version.

If you're buying a Powerball Ticket for the 700 Million dollar draw, good luck.

Yeah, I'm sure that does make things more difficult than it used to be when they just went silent. The LJ Exodus is real. Maybe they moved it to Dreamwidth?

I'm secretly hoping someone will use one of my entries to work with, on first part of this week's assignment. :)

I read Whedon's ex-wife's post, and unless I'm really missing something, Whedon is a philanderer rather than necessarily anti-feminist. He's a cad who treated his wife badly, but I don't think that says anything about the female characters he has created over time-- just that he was an unfaithful jerk and she definitely deserved better. I understand her outrage and pain, but I tend to think most of that should probably be between the two of them.

ETA: NOoooooooooooooo! How am I going to Home Game off of one of yachiru's entries if she's made them all private? *cries*

This week's topic: While utterly daunting, I think I would have been excited to do it. I'm excited to see what you surviving Idolers do with it. I think it will be amazing, and revealing.

Wheadon: Storm in a teacup. It will blow over.
