Green Room - Week 12 - Day 7

Like a DeathMole album Kickstarter campaign, the LJ Idol poll numbers just keep going up and up… so make sure that YOU have your say as well about who is going to be in the Top 10! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/684963.html

Like planning your Egyptian vacation, voting at Idol is always a good idea!

So, who isn’t getting the love that YOU think that they should be receiving? What have been your favorite entries of the week, and why?

I think everyone had really good entries this week, so picking a favorite is pretty hard. I do think, though, that agirlnamedluna and recklessblues are being criminally overlooked thus far -- the imagery and sustained tones and moods conveyed through their work is fantastic.

Me. I'm not getting the love I think I should be receiving. ;)

In all seriousness: recklessblues. Dude, why is he doing so poorly in the poll?

I was also really fond of PTW's piece this week, but she's doing really awesome in the poll. =p

I'm not getting the love that I think I should be receiving either, so I feel you on that!

Thank you. :) I wish everyone shared the same opinion! Haha.

My favorites are rec'd in my journal: porn_this_way for awesome Poe-etry, kathrynrose for Switching it up with fiction, and lrig_rorrim for making a myth more magical and oddly more believable as well. And of course, my own (which could use more love) because really, how often does one find a decent support group for the polycephalic-challenged, and how awesome is the acronym HEADS UP for such a group? (FYI, the answer to that is "pretty damn awesome," just so you know!)

A funny thought that passed by on my Facebook feed that I thought I'd share: "Would an Amish murderer get the acoustic chair?"

You're welcome!

Hey, thanks for the shout out (again). :)

And audible groan in response to the joke.

Thank you for the shout-out!!

Also. You know what goes "clip-clop clip-clop BANG clip-clop clip-clop"?

An Amish drive-by.

I don't think I can pick a favorite. Each one is a gem in its own way.

Topic switch...Anyone here familiar with juicers? Not just blenders but actual juicer machines? Anyone have a specific product to recommend or stay away from? Anyone have awesome juice recipes? I've been on this kick to get one ever since last March. Now that the home improvements are done, and I have storage, I'm ready to research buying.

This poll is a roller coaster! Not that I'm watching it or anything. :P

I was really, really fond of what recklessblues' piece this week, and I'm surprised it's not getting more votes.

From what I've seen, it's going to be close, and that part is unsurprising--the quality of this week's entries is top-notch across the board.

So we just have to wait and see no? I've encouraged my flist to read all the entries and vote for what they like best, but only Gary knows who's voting, so... I've done my part! :)

Ditto. There's only just so many times I'm willing to post links and beg for readers and voters! Que sera sera...

But I'm still keeping my fingers crossed, so if I make any typos, that's why!!

My favorite this week was porn_this_way's entry. She's so clever in her writing to put the double entendres for the Poe works, and then to package it up inside a poem that's true to rhyme and meter. Super well done. She deserves to be topping the poll.


(that's what she said)

I honestly feel like she and I would have made great drinking buddies in college. Her piece reminds me a lot of the good times in Lit club.

Ohhh ye gods, speak thee not of such things! Dirty drinking songs may or may not have been a favorite activity of mine in college, and I may or may not have ever truly grown out of it :p

Haha, *well*, I do like topping...er... HEY!! Wait just a minute here!

Srsly, thank you! I'm just now leaving work (start of year prep is a beast!) and catching up with LJ land for the day. This is an awesome thing to come home to :D (Yes, LJ is "home" - I never claimed to be a well-adjusted adult.)

m1ss1ngcupcake could use more love for this week's emotionally intense piece. It's doing way too badly in the poll right now! :O

Lol, at the DeathMole reference. I'll be quite curious to hear the album. Of course, it would be cooler if the QC characters were real, and playing in the band. I really like Hannelore.

For the record, I don't think planning an Egyptian vacation is such a great idea at the moment. I hope things improve over there, STAT. Following the news has been heartbreaking.

Love wise, there are a lot of really good entries this week. I like m1ss1ngcupcake's entry a lot.
