Idol B

Green Room - Week 4 - Day 7

The further we get into “the summer months”, the rougher it gets on LJ. At least that’s been my personal experience with it. Other people have their own takes – but things tend to die down once the kids get out of school and families start taking vacations. Which might say more about the Idol demographic than LJ’s in general. Given Livejournal’s current demographic, I’d say that they probably have more of a “low turn-out” ratio when the Russian government isn’t coming out against homosexually. When it is – everyone shows up, and overloads the servers.

The reason that I bring this up, is that word of mouth is going to be even more crucial for the rest of this mini season than it usually is – granted, Idol has gone into this time of year before, but never “one month in”. Even in the early seasons, we always came in with some serious momentum, and people following what was going to happen next.

Which means that if you want to see your favorites stick around – start talking about them. Not just to each other (which is always a good thing to do, regardless). But also mentioning them wherever it is that you go when you aren’t here. Which – I still don’t “get” that. You should just give those places up. They don’t love you like we love you! ;)

Take a look at the poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/662330.html - who isn’t getting the love you think they deserve? What is it that you like about their entry? Or, if this might have not been their best, what is it that you think that they are bringing to the table that will end up showing up in their future entries that you don’t want other people to miss?

Results - Week 4

It’s pretty simple. I said that the two contestants with the fewest votes would be leaving today.

There are two, at the bottom, with exactly the same number of votes. So, there you go - they are leaving... but wait... there is something you didn’t know!

Heck, it was something that didn’t come up until this afternoon, so really there is no shame in not knowing it. But still, I have to point out that you didn’t.

unmowngrass decided to sacrifice. Which means that one of those two spots is being filled by her.

Which means that there is a tie for that second spot - which in turn means that no one else is going home this week. The craziness that is Exhibit B continues to twist and turn!

Aren’t you glad you read this?

Topic - Week 5

Week 5.

Which means that we are entering into our second official month together. Oh how the time flies!

Once again, there are four topics for you to choose from. Pick one and make sure to let me know which one that is, since we want to keep track of such things, don’t we? Yes, we do.

They are:

South Indian Cuisine
ha-ha [not to be confused with laughter]
It's Not Tacky If You Wear It Well.
Go tell the Spartans
