Green Room - Week 4 - Day 8

http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/880185.html and http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/880602.html is where the action is today! The polls are closing tonight!

Which brings up that usual question of:

What have been some of your favorites this week?

More importantly: What have you loved that hasn't (in your opinion) gotten the love it deserves?

People tend to be busy, maybe they haven't checked it out yet... and they are just waiting for you to point them in that direction!

The GR so nice, Gary posted it twice. ;)

The Geek Squad reallllly knocked it out of the park this week. Special shout out to both encrefloue and barrelofrain who wrote, composed, and recorded songs for this week!

(It's quiet... too quiet...)

Other neat stuff to check out, just from the individuals:

fodschwazzle brings the weird, as usual, and in a very enjoyable way.

porn_this_way gave me a new show to binge watch.

the_lettersea stepped up to the plate and wrote an entry entirely in footnotes (and it works!).

thistle_verse does some really great thoughtful analysis of a classic and its intersection with her life.

yachiru wrote an awesome poem this week.

(Second time posting's the charm???)

I strongly recommend bookishgeek's entry. It's not only a unique take on the prompt, it's beautifully written as well.

Totally agree! That was a standout entry!

I was thinking the deadline was yesterday at 9 p.m.! At least now I might have time to go back and add more comments.

I'm just really proud of my team this week: bookishgeek turned a movie review into a personal memoir about a relationship; encrefloue wrote a beautifully whimsical song about the romance between a penny and a dollar bill; and tonithegreat wrote an hilarious believable fiction piece about hikers trying to shake a rabid fan of "Star Wars" episodes 1 through 3.

Kudos also for those who took real risks this week, such as leni_ba for creating a tongue-in-cheek game about terrorism and barrelofrain, who also wrote and performed a song.

I really do applaud the team this week! I love how the three of you used the same prompt and ended up in such striking and intimate places. All were a joy to read--bravo!

I haven't made a formal rec list this week, mostly because I've been stupid-busy lately (DO ALL THE THINGS o lord), but some that stood out to me:

rayaso's piece about a "bad penny" comes immediately to mind. So does reckless_blues's, which I don't want to spoil at all...

and lrig_rorrim and orockthro hardly need my recommendations, but both of their pieces were amazing. :D

Aww, thank you! Rayaso and Reckless_blues's entries were also neat! As was yours! (There were a lot of neat entries this week. I have to grudgingly admit that the more challenging prompts really pushed us all to excel.)

Barrelofrain's- protest song!!! She should get kudos for that! Props from me!

Oh! My favorite this week that wasn't sung!

rayaso's coin noir. Read it. Memorize it. Vote for it. Build an animation studio to make it a weekly Adult Swim cartoon.

Won't be the first to say it, but yachiru's really stood out this week.

I'm sad to say that I didn't get to comment on everything, but I did get to read and vote on everything this week. I'll try to catch up with my errant comments. Sorry Friends Poll people! I spent so much time reading about Bowie that I lost time to comment.
