Green Room - Week 19 - Day 1

Last night, I went to the premiere of Color Me Obsessed the documentary about the Replacements. It was good, if you love the band you should definitely check it out. If you don't love the band you should definitely check yourself in somewhere. :)

The director was there for a Q&A and the question came up about why he there were no interviews with band members and none of their music. His response was that he wanted to invoke their presence through the words of others. That in order to capture them as something other than a VH1 special, that seeing them through that filter was the way to go.

It's always interesting to hear why people decide to show certain things while leaving others up to the imagination. I'm sure you have plenty of personal examples from your own work. :)

Tie-Breaker?

Call it what you want - temporary insanity, a bout of mercy, trying to get some good karma built up before my appointment tomorrow, a fiendish trap of some kind - but we had a run off scheduled and it’s not happening.

amorphous-mess's entry has him officially revealing his “true ID” and stepping off the mat. Which, for the record, is a move that I completely understand and respect.

The other two got in well in time, and with some revealing entries of their own:

ellakite 's entry
redvelvetgrrl 's entry

Does that mean there is one more competitor in the running than was originally scheduled? Yes it does. Sometimes that happens. Today is one of those days. I’m sure I’ll find a way to make you pay for it later. :D

CHECK OUT those entries though. Comment on them!

I’m pretty sure you are going to agree that you wouldn’t want to send either of those two home either. Granted, at this point it’s difficult to send anyone away. But I don’t know, today just didn’t feel like their day.

Congratulations you too - and thank you ‘Mess. I hope we haven’t seen the last of you.
