It might interest you to know that we are now almost at the point, numbers wise, where Season 5 started. Then again, it might not. But it was interesting to me when I noticed it!
From what I can saw in the new tribes, competition is going to be rather tight for a lot of people.
Unfortunately though, four of our own will not be continuing along the path with us.
As usual, I will come back and say more. But for right now I will just announce them.
caninespirit: Being that you are someone who has been watching since Season 3, I was hoping that we were going to get the chance to see more of you out on the actual stage!! I hope you continue to have no regrets.
I however have one: Back in your intro post you said that "The hows and the whys shall come later." and we never did get to hear those stories!
Canine Spirit- Wanted For: more.
bigdoug: Considering everything you have been through over the past couple of weeks, I'm sure this is the least of your concerns.
I am so sorry about the loss of your grandfather. I think there are a lot of people who can relate to your entry, myself included at times. I think the key is to deal with these things in your own time and in your own way.
Thank you for putting together your original tribe. I don't think a lot of people really understand what goes into picking and choosing the people you want to compete against, and what that says about an individual. But I really did appreciate the amount of work you put into it.
geniusinmaine: It was definitely an interesting experiment to have a different piece of original art for each entry. People always talk about the depth of diversity in Idol and I thought you managed to highlight that by actually coming up with a format that I can't recall anyone actually doing before!
I did see a comment in your latest entry that sort of nailed it for me though - I liked the core of what you were doing, I just wanted to see more of it. I was hoping you would expand and develop things more. At the heart of it all it was a wonderful theme to explore about a horrible event that is far too common.
themegaloo: There isn't a single contestant that doesn't have something that they can share with you, something that will somehow enrich your life. Personally I enjoyed her entries, but that's not the one thing that is going to stick out in my mind about her.
For me it's about personal connections, and she made one, without even knowing it.
I was reading Idol's "friend of/audience" page a few weeks back and I came across a post from her about a show called "White Collar". It sounded interesting, so I decided to check it out.
She didn't steer me wrong. White Collar has been added to the shows that I spent my "free time" (whatever that is) watching on Hulu! So - thank you, even if you didn't know that anyone else was listening!!
are leaving our ranks today as competitors, but I certainly hope that all of you will be continuing to hang around to socialize, to see how this season continues to develop, and perhaps play the Home Game.
