Green Room - Week 31 - Day 5

I just received a phone call from Adnan Syed letting me know that he had absolutely nothing to do with this week's poll: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/816301.html

I'm not sure what to think though, so I will be exploring this in a 12 part podcast.

In the meantime, make sure you check out that link so that you can weigh the evidence for yourself!

Or take part in the Killing Floor/Home Game and help protect the innocent! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/815412.html

Who is innocent in YOUR life? Who is most definitely guilty?

This is really gorgeously said. (Do you write much in the way of non-fiction essaying? You have a superb command of the language, but more...an impressive way of stringing many thoughts/sentences together to create nice and meaty paragraphs which then provoke thinking....)

It is my first Idol-ing and I am busy writing....but reflective thought and speculation is always a good thing. I wish there was a way for this to make Gary money because he really is what makes Idol such an amazing and unique experience. I'm certain getting writers to sign up would never really be an issue, regardless of dying platform.

I've taken and taught several year-long transformative courses. (Jungian in nature and sculpting/doll-making in particular, but with a lot of emphasis on journaling.) The Warrior of Light who led those courses was able to create a living out of doing so....but that's such a multi-faceted goal.

I've got a few writers on my flist who aren't here....I'm ready to pimp Idol HARD in the New Year.

"I wish there was a way for this to make Gary money"

There are, and I'm using what I can. :)

It's not "much" money (in the bigger scheme of things) but every bit is helpful and most definitely appreciated.

You are always going to have people who (1) are not able to do anything financial. Most days I'm like that myself. So definitely understandable. I listen to a podcast several times I week that I wish I could give to... one day I will... (2) People who are opposed to any sort of exchange of money whatsoever for something that they have received for free (3) Some combination of those two with variations. ;)

You are also going to have people in a position to give, who do so.

All of those are people are welcome in Idol. The money aspect is just one way to "give back".


" because he really is what makes Idol such an amazing and unique experience."

I really am!

Oh wait, was I supposed to be modest? ;)

"I'm certain getting writers to sign up would never really be an issue, regardless of dying platform."

The Exhibits had a $5 donation and still had just under 100 people sign up. So there is definitely interest out there.

Thank you! And thank you again! I don't really do a lot of non-fiction essaying - I do some noodling over in my personal journal, and I played with doing non-fiction for Idol in exhibit B with mythingperson (I caught myself saying "I can't do non-fiction" and when I notice a "can't" I get riled up and try to prove myself wrong). The noodlings are sometimes ok, and the stuff I produced for Idol I'm fond of, but mostly I stick to made-up stories and worlds that don't exist. It's more comfortable for me.

I agree that it would be great if Gary could make a living off of Idol - I don't know if that's going to happen, but it's an admirable goal, anyway. It's just such a hard thing, dealing with money. Emotions get all tied up in it and people have a pretty astounding capacity for getting weird about it (including me. Someone offers me a book as a gift and I'm like "ooo thank you!", but offer me the price of the book as a monetary gift just straight up? I feel weird about that).
