You know... when I said I was kinda over Los Angeles and wanted to go away again? I kinda meant back to the UK.

Holy crap this is insane.

Alright, folks... time for what was originally going to be a weekly thing, but is being changed to monthly because I have the attention span of a crack baby.

SLAYER OF THE MONTH!



This month, we're gonna put the focus on someone who's truly shown the growth and change most people only wish they had the strength to accomplish. Kayla Barnes started her journey as a slayer by being full of unmanaged rage, and had a chip on her shoulder the size of Galador.

She caused some damage, had a scrape or two that shouldn't have happened, and broke a few hearts... but over time, she grew to be many things I wouldn't have expected from her when we met: sweet, nurturing, kind, mature, and someone anyone could feel comfortable looking up to. She went from one of the "black sheeps" of the slayers, to being a talent show host that was looked at in a motherly way by most of the contestants. From someone who people were afraid to get close to, to a loyal friend, a loving wife, and most importantly here, one hell of a slayer.

Love you, KayKay. If Gabe could see you now, he'd be proud as fuck.

You know what one of the things about home is that I miss?

The slayers feeling like a sisterhood.

For real: we had weekly meetings, training sessions, gatherings just for the hell of it... we were family.

I know we got a few slayers here, too - so why aren't we closer? C'mon, really. Let's change that.

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: SEMIFINALS, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
A short promotional video started off the show, with close-up photos of each of the remaining three singers. Ben's voice could be heard narrating as music played in the background.

"Week after week of close calls with voting. Of highs and lows. Of some of the most inspired performances we've seen yet. After all this, we are down to three candidates for your next Universal Idol."

"This week, Alex Manes-Guerin, Queen Barb, or Olive Penderghast will be sent home, and we will find out who will be competing next week, right here, in the Season 2 Finals."

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: Week 6, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
The show kicked off with highlights of last week's duets, the unprecedented quality of each performance, and clips of the judges being blown away by all six singers.

A clip was shown of Rachel Berry being eliminated, complete with her now-former "arch-nemesis" Rachelle Martin-Bale giving her a standing ovation after her name was called.

Benjamin Bale then walked out to begin the live broadcast, giving the audience a quick rundown of the five performers that remained, before introducing each of the judges. Like Rachelle had said on the network earlier in the day, she indeed was in celebratory mode, her section of the table covered in a Terrible Towel, a Steelers pennant, and a black-and-gold End Zone banner, advertising both of it's locations. And of course, Rachelle herself was wearing black-and-gold spandex leggings with a Chase Claypool jersey and a Steelers cap on her head, giving a cheesy double thumbs-up to the camera as it passed her.

Hey everyone! Been focusing on getting my personal life back on track lately, to be honest, but I'm still here!

Been loving Idol this season, lot of people already that I'd love to work with one a future Bad Reputation album. Considering my lead guitarist's girlfriend is in there, I kinda have to root for her on general principle, but everyone's been great. I feel like something awesome could come of working with Olive, Alex, or Rachel. I love that people are comparing Queen Barb to me. She's got a hell of a voice, so to me, that's a big compliment.

So anyway! How is everyone? If we're already friends, tell me what you've been up to. If you're new here, or just don't know me yet? Please, introduce yourself!

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: Week 4, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
This week, the show opened with a dramatic montage of all the remaining vocalists preparing for this week's performances, with a voiceover from Benjamin Bale explaining that one of these people will win the right to be Full Moon Entertainment's next superstar.

After the show's opening, Ben once again welcomed all the viewers, explaining the rules and reminding them who was left. He then again introduced the four judges, starting with Kyle, then moving to Kayla... before panning over to Rachelle hanging a little sign in front of where Meredith sat, that had a cartoonish crab on it and said "Crabs Live Here". Sigh. Keep it classy, Rachelle.

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: Week 3, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic
Rather than the usual montage of clips, this week's Universal Idol opened with a quick recap of last week's shocking elimination of Kevin Van Warren, who'd been considered a serious threat to win the entire thing. A voiceover reminded the fans that there's no sure things in a competition like this, and that anyone could be eliminated at any time.

After the show's opening, Ben once again welcomed all the viewers, explaining the rules and reminding them who was left. He then introduced Rachelle, Meredith, Kayla, and Kyle as the judges, before handing the show over to the people it's really about: the performers.

Thank you, sincerely, to everyone who voted for me. I'm obviously shocked and saddened to have been eliminated this week, but I plan to continue pursuing a career as a pop singer.

I wish nothing but the best to all of the remaining performers, and I'll see you all again when we reunite at the finals.

As I sit here in this coffee shop called "The Sugar Shack", I find my thoughts varied and random.

I find that the friendly, upbeat nature of this establishment is extremely endearing... yet the difficulty in obtaining a plain cup of black coffee that isn't flavored in one of, apparently, 134 different ways is quite frustrating.

I seem to meet new, increasingly interesting people each day, yet I can't help but constantly think of people I can no longer see - Audrey. Harry. Annie. Cleo. Bless him, even Gordon Cole.

It's a very melancholy feeling, one that has admittedly caught me quite off-guard.

[info]freedomtownic
After a video recap of Week 1, including the reactions of the two contestants that were eliminated and a few of the judges' opinions of the remaining contestants, a spotlight shone on Benjamin Bale, standing again in the center of the stage.

After introducing himself, and giving a quick explanation of the show and the prize, he took a moment to introduce each of the four judges, before turning the stage over to this week's performers...

UNIVERSAL IDOL S2: WEEK 1, Ep1


[info]benjamin_bale
[info]freedomtownic


Universal Idol opened with a huge pyro display, complete with oversized video walls showing photos and bios of all the contestants, with a voiceover welcoming all viewers in attendance and watching at home.

The camera finally panned over to Benjamin Bale, wearing dress jeans and a black suitcoat over a vintage Van Halen "5150" tee. 

"Hello everyone, and welcome to Season 2 of Universal Idol! Two contestants will be eliminated each of the first two weeks, with one elimination per week afterwards, until we are left with one winner, who will receive a guaranteed recording contract with Full Moon Entertainment and promoted throughout seven planets."

He pointed to the video wall, where pictures of each perform were shown.

"This year, we bring to you:

Alex Manes!
Craig Manning!
Audrey Rose!
Kevin Van Warren!
Ally!
Maya Matlin!
Olive Penderghast!
Queen Barb!
Rachel Berry!
Neveah Dean-Ramirez!
Spencer Quill!
Tilde Tyler!

And of course, the show couldn't be complete without our panel of judges...

Returning from last season, she's the vocalist of A Woman Scorned, an sctress, and the owner of The End Zone... Full Moon artist Rachelle Martin-Bale!

Also returning from last season, the woman some have called the heart and compassion of the show, Full Moon recording artist Meredith Delany!

New to the program this season, someone who is no stranger to knowing how to entertain, actor Kyle Sutherland!

And finally, also new this season, a woman as whip-smart and entertaining as she is beautiful, head bartender at The End Zone and longtime associate of Full Moon Entertainment, Kayla Barnes!"

After the introduction of each of the four judges, the rules were then explained to the viewers:

Each contestant will sing one song of their choosing on the first episode of the week. During each performance, a number would be shown on-screen for viewers to send a text to in order to vote for that performer. After taking a day off to compile the votes, the second episode would then announce the two performers with the lowest vote totals. Those two will be eliminated from the competition.

((OOC: Each week, the starter post will go up on Sunday. The contestants will have until Tuesday at 5pm EST to get their performances posted. Not posting a performance will be an automatic elimination, and the performance will hand-waved. The judes will then have until Thursday evening at 8pm EST to get their critiques done, at which time the eliminations will be announced via a new post. ))

*when the video feed starts, Lucy's pulling back from the phone, smiling*

Hello Galador! *waves to camera*

I'm feeling a little maudlin tonight (no worries, guys, just going through old songs got me remembering things), and I thought I should play something for you tonight. I wrote this after a bad breakup *she cringes a little*, and, let me put this out there, no hard feelings toward him, because now I'm a big girl and I get that first loves don't always work out. But! Coming across this song brought up a lot of old memories and I thought I might play it for you guys. This is dedicated to anyone going through something similar right now and feels the need to wallow for a night. Trust me, I did a lot of wallowing back in the day.

*She reaches off camera, pulling in an acoustic guitar and setting it across her lap. After an absent strum, she starts playing.*

You don't want me, no
You don't need me
Like I want you, oh
Like I need you

And I want you in my life
And I need you in my life

You can't see me, no
Like I see you
I can't have you, no
Like you have me

And I want you in my life
And I need you in my life

Love
Love
Love

You can't feel me, no
Like I feel you
I can't steal you, no
Like you stole me

And I want you in my life
And I need you in my life

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la


*When she finishes, she smiles at the camera again.* So, if a breakup has you feeling down in the dumps tonight, your girl Lucy here has you. Now, though, I'm going to find my actual girlfriend and snuggle her. She's the one who makes feeling like this a distant memory. Night! *waving to the camera one more time, she then leans forward, turning it off*

[OOC: Actual song here, performed by The Pretty Reckless.]

Alrighty then, So, lemme get this straight.

Superheroes are real. Star Wars and all the stuff Rachelle used to geek out over are real,. And to top it all off, we're on another planet.

I'm pretty easygoing, but even I'M gonna take a while to accept all this.

The girl at the Welcome Center said my sisters are here... Lucy? Chloe? Can either of you see this?

I'm Kevin Van Warren. And I'm kinda hoping my wife's here too. Please dear lord, tell me Buffy Van Warren/Summers (whichever she's using) is here?

Alright. This is me, trying to get back to being the old Ginny again. Sometimes you make a new friend who helps you see things differently, and Tess made me realize I'm not the only one who's sad, or lonely, or depressed. Dwelling on it and self-pitying isn't going to help. So... yeah. I'm gonna give this a shot.

Early Morning Adventure


[info]kayla_barnes
[info]freedomtownic
Who: Kayla and Rusty!
Where: Waikiki Beach, Oahu
When: Early Saturday Morning
What: Exercise!
Rating: Low, I imagine
Status: Open; multiple threads welcome

Kayla took in a breath and let it out slowly as she roused from a deep and peaceful slumber. She rolled to one side of the bed and tried not to laugh at the state of Chloe's bedhead. Rusty, their little Jack Russell Terrier, let her know that he knew she was awake by jumping on her side of the bed and licking at her face. "Alright, alright. You cheeky little bugger. We'll get you all sorted and go for a play," she said softly. "We'll let mum sleep a little bit longer, eh?"

Roughly half an hour later she arrived at Waikiki beach at a jogging pace with Rusty nipping at her heels, dressed in sweats and a sports bra with a tennis ball in one hand. "Let's see you get this one!" She said to him, skipping the ball across the sand for him to chase (which he did happily). She figured that she'd head back home in a half hour or so -- she made a mental note to pick up a coffee for Chloe along the way. "Oi!" She called out to the dog when she noticed that he got side-tracked on his return trip. "Over here, buddy!"

My gig as a mentor on Idol isn't for another week or so... at least I have that to be excited about. I love trying to mentor up and coming singers.

In the meantime? I see a lot of sad movies, Chinese food, and wine in my future.
