Green Room - Week 8 - Day 11

It's the last day of the poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/736346.html

That's one of those things that isn't open to interpretation.

Heck, it's one of the few things in Idol that doesn't end up as a Rorschach test. There is a poll, and it ends at a certain time.

Everything else - from how you look at those results, to the topics and how you interpret them/react to other people's interpretations, that's something where every person is going to come at them from a slightly different angle and see things in their own way, based on their own life experiences.

Which is one of the things that I've always found so much fun about Idol. I set the basic framework, and each season the contestants themselves fill in all of the blanks.

You see it in how people react to the topics ("Worse topic ever!" "This is great, I have so many ideas!") to how they react to Idol itself. ("wretched hive of scum and villainy" to "this is home", sometimes from the same people. :P)

Seeing the same thing interpreted in a number of ways, it definitely keeps me on my toes!

Idol is, ultimately, what you decide that is going to be each season. You, the contestants and those out there in Readerland, decide how the season is going to go with each vote.

Which is what makes this so interesting for me. So, thanks!

I just came across this, and thought it was interesting information. I don't tend to do the whole "trigger warning" thing, but it is about racism and there is use of the N-word. There is also ice cream. No trigger warnings for ice cream.
