Season 9 Sign Up Sheet


I wanted to say something profound here. But nothing comes to mind.

Or perhaps something witty. But I've got nothing there either.

What I DO have is the Sign Up Sheet for the final season of LJ Idol.

Right here. You have a chance to be a part of that.

It doesn't matter if you've signed up for every single season or have no idea what LJ Idol even is, but your friend said it was cool, so you're trying it out. You are here, and I am extremely grateful to see you! I hope we are going to have a fun time.

But before we get to any of that, we start with the Sign Up itself!

All you have to do is go to your LJ/blog/whatever it is you are using and post something about signing up. It can literally be "I'm signing up for LJ Idol" and then paste a link to that post here in the comments section.

Please, only post that, any other comments can go to the Green Room (which is going up a few minutes after this goes live!) Save me some time deleting extra comments, and let's get started on the right foot. Once we get to the weekly topics, you are going to be linking your entries in threads much like this one, so this is good practice!

If you have any further questions, the FAQ is a good resource:

Sign ups start NOW will close Monday, March 10th at 9pm EDT EXTENSION!!! They will close Monday, March 17th at 7pm EDT

Green Room - Sign Up Week - Day 1

[video of "Stay Positive" by The Hold Steady]

"I've got a lot of old friends who are getting back in touch. It's a pretty good feeling, yeah it feels pretty good. I get a lot of double takes when I'm coming around the corners. And it's mostly pretty nice, yeah, it's mostly pretty all right. Cause most kids give me credit for being down with it, when it was back in the day, back when things were way different. When the Young of Today and early 7 Seconds taught us some of life's most valuable lessons"

"There's gonna come a time when the true scene leaders, are going to forget where they differ, and get the big picture. Cause the kids at the shows, they'll have kids of their own, their sing-a-long songs will be our scriptures"

"Cause it's one thing to start it off with a Positive Jam, and it's another thing to see it on through. And we couldn't even done this if it wasn't for you"

Most things that I want to say have been said by Craig Finn.

One thing that he didn't say was that there is one more interview with me, about LJ Idol, that has gone live. So if you feel like reading what I had to say, check it out:

Another thing he didn't say was that Sign Ups have officially opened up!!

Remember, only post the link to your declaration there. Anything else you want to say, that's why we have the Green Room!

Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up - and for those still on the fence, hop on over!! That fence is old and rotted, it's probably going to collapse anyway! You'll probably get impaled. No one wants to get impaled by a old rotten fence! Come get impaled alongside some fellow writers instead!! It's much more fun!
