Idol Minor - The Playground - Day 4

I will be posting the first topic this evening.

Sign-ups are still open: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/852051.html

I'm considering leaving them open during the first topic, just to allow folks to see what is going on, and get involved.

I spoke with a couple other people just last night who seemed excited by what we are doing here. Will they actually show up though? That's the question! :)


Speaking of "excited by what we are doing here". Late last season, I sent out emails to people who I wanted to bring in as Quick Fire Judges. One of them just got back to me a couple days ago! ;) The shocker isn't that - it was that he got back to me at all! He thought that LJ Idol sounded like a "a lot of fun" but just didn't have the time to do it.

Yes, that means George RR Martin knows about LJ Idol. :)


I was going to have the first topic be "Blue", after an old Idol in-joke. But I wasn't sure if anyone, other than me, would remember that. :)

As is, I think the topics that I do have are going to be fun. (Or at least I hope that they will be!) I will post the topic - and a Home Game thread, so that the adults can play along!)

My friend's 14yo is interested, but they've had a lot of end-of-school-year stuff going on this week and he won't have time to be online until sometime tonight; I'm not sure what time. If you don't extend sign-ups, is it possible for me to post something in his stead, even though he's not my kid (with his mom's permission, of course)?

I'm going to be extending them.

But yeah, with her permission (and his of course!) that would be OK.

I support the idea of keeping the sign-ups open through the first week. I've put the word around, but it might be more tempting to sign up if the kids' parents have a prompt and a week of entries to review for an idea of what's going to be happening.

Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking!

I can't believe I nearly missed the deadline. Glad you're extending it. I'm looking forward to a good distraction.

Also, GRRM? That's pretty cool that he responded. I don't read his books, but I do follow his 'Not a Blog.'

As I told him, I (of course) love the Song of Ice and Fire books. But Fevre Dream and Armageddon Rag were *huge* favorites of mine as a teenager.
