Green Room - Week 24 - Day 5

"May. 31st, 2006 12:18 pm

Last night I figured out how to make LJ Idol work, and be something that would actually be INTERESTING and not just a completely "look at me! look at me" Gary pleading for attention and love fest.

I mean, this thing could actually *work*. (either that or fall completely on its face, which, might be funny too.*g*)"


That was 10 years ago. I had mentioned the name "LJ Idol" a couple days before, as part of "other things that I could do" once "LJ Fights" was over. (LJ Fights was where I took every member of my friends list, matched them up and played it out what would happen if they were engaged in a death match, until there was only one left standing!)

I wanted to do something that was more interactive, but I wasn't sure what... so I came up with a bunch of names for things and put up a poll. LJ Idol was one of those names, but I had no idea what that was.

It came to me in a dream.

Over the last 10 years, hopefully it's "worked" more than it has fallen on it's face! :)


Btw - your entries are due today: and no, you can't call in with the "Fell into a gorilla pit" excuse.

Vote - Week 24

A few words from clauderainsrm:

You may have heard this somewhere, but today is the 10th year anniversary of LJ Idol!

Literally today.

Looking through the entries as I was linking them for this poll, I’m really happy that it is today. Because the 5 remaining contestants really represent what it is that this place is all about.

So, thank you contestants!

That said, this is still a poll and there will still be an elimination.

1 contestant will be leaving us, and the Top 4 will emerge from those ashes. Due to an immunity and a bye that was taken, we already know who 2 of those people are going to be. Another bye *could* have been taken, but it was not. Which makes this poll all that more interesting as a result!

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites! And tell a friend to come over here to celebrate with us, and cheer on our Top 5 on their road to become the next LJ Idol!

The poll closes Friday, June 3rd at 10pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!
