Green Room - Week 14 - Day 7

The poll closes tonight! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/909410.html
so get up off that thing, and vote for your favorites until you feel better!

(I'm pretty sure that's what James Brown *meant* to say!)

***

A "Friend of Idol" (well, a friend of a friend of Idol) has a Kickstarter for an new game: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dirtycops/dirty-cops-a-game-for-scoundrels

It was suggested that I wait until a weekday post to advertise this and that I "say something controversial".

So: #1: "Dirty Cops? Couldn't they have just called this Cops?"

(OK, I've known a lot of really good people who have been police officers. Of course, I've known such absolute scumbags who have also been police officers. But nuanced commentary isn't "controversial". So - ALL COPS ARE DIRTY!!)

#2: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/03/20/university-kansas-professor-keeps-job-after-using-racial-slur-in-class.html

I also found this, from the "other side": https://medium.com/@schumaal/what-follows-is-a-letter-collectively-written-by-the-students-currently-enrolled-in-coms-930-at-the-8f4914d4bbd5#.8ta9e64td

and this one, that seems to be somewhere between the two: http://www.inquisitr.com/2909531/andrea-quenette-found-not-guilty-racism/

Results - Week 14

Less than an average of 4 votes: That's the difference in the Teams between the "top" and the "bottom". That's not much of a margin.

There's not a huge difference when you get right down to the "barely survived" and "received the most votes" either. This mini-season has been a bit of a horse race the entire way, and has the marks of potentially being that going down the stretch!

That's the good news, or maybe the bad news for your nerves!

Now it's time to announce the bad news. Two contestants will be leaving us from the Teams and two from the Rivals.

There are:
From Team Strawberry Snuggle roina_arwen
and from The Geek Squad tonithegreat

The Rivals are losing ellison and sinnamongirl

Thank you so much for coming out this mini-season, and I hope we will continue to get the chance the read your stuff in the Home Game!

I know, you're busy watching Daredevil Season 2. Or perhaps that's just me and I'm projecting.

In any case, there is something else you need to do:

Select one of these topics:

Satisfaction guaranteed
Call and Response
Just put a bandaid on it...!
Nailed It
Stop laughing


and link your entry back to this thread by Friday, March 25th at 8pm EST

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 15

The new topics are up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/910933.html

and by now, I'm sure you have a method to your madness of how to deal with it.

So I'll let you get to it.

But I will let you know that last week was the end of the immunities. Neither of the two that were awarded at the start of the season ended up being used to protect their owners.

Also, Teams will be going away with the Top 25 or whenever there is only 1 team left (whatever comes first). So if you want to form, reform or change teams, the time is growing very short to do so!

You can use byes until the Top 20. But even that is coming soon... after that point, it's writing non-stop until we get to the end of this!
