Keep in mind that all the topics this season have come from YOU, the contestants in LJ Idol.
That said, I notice themes and try to bunch them together in a way that interests me.
This time around it was actually because of a conversation I had with a former contestant who was talking about how she really misses the days of when Idol was more non-fiction than fiction.
Which, I can definitely understand that.
I know why the change happened, I saw it happening. But I also get why people would want to go back to the roots.
Does that mean that the entries this week *can't* be fiction? Hell no. It's your entry, do with it what you want! I just wanted to let you know where these seemed to be coming from:
Your choices this week are (choose one):
- We All Have The Movie. The One We're Supposed to Hate. Talk About... In Depth. Spoil it and explain WHY you love it despite mostly everyone else.
- The death of the 1¢ coin / penny and the $1 bill.
- Terrorism in 2015-16 Are we becoming numb to the violence?
The links to your entries are due Friday January 8th at 9pm EST
Granted, you don't have to do a non-fiction entry... and the movie related topic can easily be made into talking about a book or any other piece of popular culture.
There's plenty of ways to twist and turn these things into whatever you want to make them. On the other hand, they are kind of specific.
But this is definitely a different kind of week. Or rather it's a different kind of week than most of the "new school" players have ever seen. Which makes it interesting to me.
How are you going to make yourself stand out?
Reminder: Any changes with the teams needs to be with me by Thursday at 9pm. (24 hours before the deadline) So if you want to add/drop members or form new teams now that you have had a few weeks to get to know some of the newbies, just send me an email at email@example.com!
