Green Room - Week 24 - Day 6

Over the past year or so, I’ve been getting more and more into podcasts. Yes, I’ve joined the last decade. Sooner or later it was going to happen.

It’s not quite to the level of my food truck obsession, or maybe it’s greater, since I do more listening to podcasts than I actually spend visiting food trucks. After all, it’s cheaper and although you do have to go out and find podcasts as well, you can stay in one place and just surf around the web! So, I guess podcasts are food trucks for your ears.

Right now I’m listening to Survivor podcasts, Rob Paulsen’s animation cast and of course something that it’s a podcast (but I can’t have video up on my screen, so I just peak at it every once in awhile) a series of Harvard lectures on Science and Soft Matter Cooking.

So, if you know of any good ones – feel free to point me to them!

Which brings me back into Idol, because if you know of any good entries, that don’t seem to be getting the attention you think they deserve http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/560771.html – you should be letting people know about those as well! You shouldn’t just be waiting around for someone to cut your last rope and have your effigy go up in flames – you should be actively letting people know what you think and what you like!

It’s the last day of the poll after all, so speak now or forever hold your peace! (or piece, depending on what exactly is in your hand right now!)

Results - Week 24

As I mentioned in the poll post, we have reached our Top 50. Which is an amazing place for anyone to be - so although it's difficult to say goodbye to people, there is also the aspect of "It was an amazing run" also in place.

It's that second part that keeps going through my head with these two contestants, even if one of them had an abbreviated one from coming in from Second Chance, they both made their mark.

Goodbye to


it's interesting, because I went back to vaudy's intro, trying to remember how many seasons she has been involved with, only to realize that this was the first! It certainly doesn't feel like it. Maybe it's because I've seen the name before from supporting other people playing, or maybe there are just some people who feel like they belong here...

Hopefully, both of them will be veterans next time around, and in the meantime, we will continue to see them in the Home Game.

Topic - Week 25

It's time to pair up again, and go into another round of INTERSECTIONS!

There are two topics. You write on one of them, and your partner writes the other.

The only criteria being that you can not pick someone that you have already partnered with this season! We have an even number of contestants, so no one should be left out this time!

The topics are:


You have until Monday, April 30th at 8pm EDT to link your entry back to this thread. Please indicate which entry you are writing and who your partner is, to make it easier on everyone. Thanks!

Good luck to everyone!

Work Room - Week 25

it was just announced http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/561685.html that this is another round of Inersections! So, I'm sure you want to get started picking people. In case you are interested in such things though - the TOP 50 ICON is no available: http://ljidol.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/lji.s8.50.icon_.gif

It's been a long road, and it only goes uphill from here. How much have you left in your tank for the rest of the journey?

Oh, who are we kidding - just go wild with FRIST and grabbing up a partner! ;)

Now that you've done two rounds of this, what sort of person are you looking for in a partner? Who do you think can bring out the best in your work just by being there as a sounding board?
