A lie on the throne is a lie still, and truth in a dungeon is truth still.

First, the important The Sing-Off news: The Tufts Beelzebubs are in the finals!

Also, I can't resist this entry from Ben Fold's blog about what he hopes for the future of a cappella. Be still my heart. He really is so adorkable, and I love the fact he's putting his money (and talent) where his mouth is.

Do you know how many years I've spent in the wilderness, all alone listening to WERS All A Cappella on Saturdays and Sunday afternoons? (By the way for all you non-Boston-area a cappella fans: WERS has live on-air streaming.) Too long. On recently have I met other people who share my love. (*waves to my local peeps*)

First, before I start, a few random observations:

Word on the grapevine is that the groups didn't get to costume themselves. Their costumes were chosen for them, thus solving the mystery why the Beelzebubs looked like a bunch of naughty, spit-balling prep school boys all week. It also explains why some of the girls in the other groups seemed to be constantly tugging down skirts that were too short or pulling at tops that were too tight.

Whoever is costuming the groups really needs to be shot. No. Seriously. Those are some retina-searing colors involved there for all of the groups. I'm thinking specifically of Noteworthy and their searing yellow ensemble for the first night. And dear God, Voices of Lee. Poor, poor Voices of Lee with the pink-and-blue sparklies they were wearing tonight.

You know what this means. The costumer from Buffy the Vampire Slayer found a new job. It's only a matter of time before someone in this competition is wearing Willow's "Elmo's Pelt" sweater from Season 4.

Now all that's left is the live performance show on Monday and I can't wait! It's going to be soooooo awesome!

Now, spoilers under the cut...

Two of my predictions pan out, and one minor surprise because clearly one of the groups heard my telepathic advice and took itCollapse )

Overall, it was a nice waste of six hours' worth of television this week, and I'm definitely looking forward to the live performances (both the three finalist groups as well as numerous special guests) on Monday.

Overall, I'm pleased with the final three line-up, even if one group surprised me by getting there. I also think that the winner is a foregone conclusion.

Still, I tossed my vote in for the 'Bubs, even thought I don't think they stand a chance in hell of winning.
ElJay Coupons

I know some people are busy making fun of ElJay for this, but know what?

I don't care.

There are some people with Basic and Plus accounts (some of whom are on my FList) who would love to upgrade, but the cost is just a little bit out of reach. And although 40% off doesn't seem like a lot, that's a hell of a lot better than some of the sales I'm seeing out there this season. (Rules of the coupons are here.)

So, if you want a coupon, please comment below. As I'm going to be a bit busy at work, I might not be able to get your coupon to you until tonight.

I only have 10 coupons to pass out.

Comments are screened for privacy, because some people may not want other people to know that they need the discount.

Dreamwidth Invites

In addition, I have 5 more Dreamwidth invites for people who want them. If you do want them, I'll need an email address to send you one.

I only have 5 invites to pass out.

Please do the following in your response be sure to specify whether you're requesting an ElJay Upgrade Coupon or a Dreamwidth invite. If you are requesting a Dreamwidth invite, please give me an email address so I can send it to you

That is all.

P.S. — Edited for mistakes in the coupon rules. This is what I get for reading the rules while dodging snooping bosses who want to know if I'm actually working. The nerve! How dare anyone expect me to work for my paycheck!
