People have started bugging me for an update, so I'm back posting. I'd say "bugging you", but I hope that people who just aren't interested will skip down to the stuff that *does* interest them!I'd say right now that "early Jan" is pretty much out (barring a "Christmas miracle" and even then I'm still waiting on the graphics for next season anyway) but still hoping for sometime that month being able to roll out Season 9. If it doesn't happen, well, then it doesn't. That was kind of the point of doing things this way, to conform to the schedule that the general public decides. If people decide "never" is the right time, well, then I'll have to live with that too. (heh, you can tell that I'm not ready to come back right now, because I'm always ready to drive you crazy! :D) ( Read more...Collapse )Let me know if there is anything specific that you think should be in the FAQs. I'll be writing those soon, so the more "Newbies should know this..." you want to share, the better. So much is "common knowledge" that it can be tricky. Of course there is also those aspects that work so much better as people figure them out themselves. I can say "Idol is what you make it" 500 times in the FAQs, but it's not until you truly *get it* that things really kick in. (and then, often get lost again!)Anyway - enough with that stuff...How have you been doing? Enjoying your holidays/enjoyed your holidays/about to enjoy your holidays/not acknowledging this tilt of the earth as anything other than "it's cold"? Excited for the Doctor Who Christmas Special or the Sherlock one (online!)? Excited for the ending of the latest season of Survivor or the "Brawn vs Brains vs Beauty" theme of the next? Excited about ANYTHING? No? I will kick some excitement into you... don't make me come over there...
If you aren’t watching this season of Survivor, you are missing out on some really good television!Which is weird, because going into this, with the “Blood vs Water” twist, and Redemption Island, I thought this was going to be awful. I was on the fence about watching anymore. If you know me, you know how HUGE that would be for me to step away from the show even for a season!Ultimately, I decided to give it a try, and I’m glad that I did! It’s just one of those times when the stars align just right and you get something really special, in spite of everything that should have killed it!What are YOU watching that makes your heart go pitter-patter? I’ve introduced Cynthia and Celena to Doctor Who, where David Tennant has gained a couple new converts to his cult. But we are in Season 4, so I expect that in the coming week there will be a lot of tears shed in my household! :D***We’ve had this offer before, but it’s back on the table for the Holidays! Amy Levy is offering a copy of her book “Welcome to River Street” for $16 (plus s/h) directly from her. $5 of that will go directly to Idol! She also has a couple extra copies of Idol Musings, if anyone is interested. I don’t know how much those are off the top of my head, but a portion of those sales will be going directly to Idol as well! Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.orgIf you have a book – or anything else, that you want to offer Idol a piece of the profits, let me know and I’ll advertise it here too! :DHeck, even if you don’t offer a piece – I’ll put it on the Idol Amazon page for people to check out. Like Kristen Duvall’s book! I can’t recall if I’ve hyped this before – but if I haven’t, you really should check it out! http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/1490926879 or http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/B00G60U4MW for the Kindle version! EXTREMELY proud of her!Fey Publishing also has a new(ish) anthology out that I can’t recall if I’ve mentioned or not – HORRORS OF HISTORY! http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/B00FUUDREQ I know there are a LOT of horror fans out there in Idol land. You should definitely check it out!Books - especially "Idol related" books, make great gifts!*** For those who want to know where the Idol’raiser is at currently, perhaps Sunday postings were a bad idea, since not many people actually saw it! My own confidence issues coming to bite me on this one. There is less than a month until Jan though. So it’s looking like a Jan 1 date probably won’t happen. But that’s not to say that it still couldn’t start sometime later that month!
