Wow. It has taken me until just now to get through reading all of the entries in week one of . There were 80 entries, and I wanted to read them all, at least for the first week. That way I could make an informed decision on my "top 5". I'm afraid, though, that I was a little overwhelmed, and the last entries probably didn't get the attention they deserved from me. I know a little more now how Simon, Randy, and Paula must feel after hearing audition after audition for days on end. The big difference here is that there really were no bad entries. Click on the button above to read all the entries, if you dare to take on the task. My top 5 recommendations are (in no particular order):

1. Codswallop and Flapdoodle: A conversation between the main characters, having been swept into a time warp. Very imaginative and entertaining.
2. Clarity Amdist Chaos: The journal of a junior high "playah".
3. Loobylu's Journal: A wonderfully illustrated fashion tour of the '80's.
4. Tim Samoff: Wacky adventure of 6 adolescent thrill-seekers, armed with nothing but skateboard decks and bravado.
5. And last, but definitely not least, Cliff Between the Lines: The stories were so good it took two posts to get it all. I have to admit that this one was my sentimental favorite this week, because of the writing style and the use of "definitions" at the beginning of each post that functioned as sort of subtitles.

Now I have a bit of a "breather" before next week's topic is revealed. I have to admit that I'm enjoying this much more than I thought I would. I've not had much time to get around to my regular favorite blogs this week, so I'm gonna have to figure out a way to pare down the number of Idol blogs I read next week. They're all so good, it'll be difficult to cut them down. I have a list of about 20 out of the 80 that stood out, so I may just read those for next time.
