Ada-L is thinking about Sergio Leone's adoration of the masculine face.
Oct 16 Ada-L commented on Ex-Mars Hill Insiders Reflect on Pastor Mark Driscoll's Resignation.
My experience in drudgery is that upper level management seldom leaves with admitting their mistakes. I would imagine Mark has some sort of severance package even, yes even though he "resigned." The backroom deal to get him to leave involved allowing him to not confess anything. This gives him a clean slate to move to California and set up shop again. Where I work this is called being "reassigned to a special project for the CEO" which I guess is God. It's not a firing, certainly. *ahem*
Oct 11 Ada-L commented on Art Spiegelman and a Jazz Composer Bring Old Comics Back to Life.
This sounds like taking story boards and just going straight to the composer for a score without the silly filming and nonsense getting in the way. I have seen David Lasky pull off something like this at Hugo House, so I know how good it can be.
Aug 15 Ada-L commented on More Evidence That Mars Hill Church Has Been Exiled from the Evangelical Community.
@2 Indeed! That phrase works on so many levels!
Jul 11 Ada-L commented on A Year Without Eyman.
I would imagine that Mark Driscoll may be looking for work soon and he has the credentials and proven track record with regard to swaying the minds of intellectually challenged people. Perhaps he can plagiarize some of Tim's work.

Jul 7 Ada-L commented on If the Universe Is a Mystery Novel, We're All the Victim.
"You can't really blame publishers for encouraging genre authors to develop their book ideas into trilogies and multipart series."

After listening to several panels of genre writers, it sounds like publishers require the authors to develop their book ideas into series by the alluring terms of their contracts (which in turn gives the writers a modicum of job security). But you're right, it does tend to reduce risk, which is why Allen and Unwin gave a huge boost to the whole nasty process by breaking up one particular book back in the early fifties.
Jun 29 Ada-L commented on Former Mars Hill Member Writes About Pastor Mark Driscoll's "Demon Trials".
Catching up a bit late on this, but since Predestination is such an central part of of the MH system, I am guessing the Demons have already won a few, so the point of the trials, or making a choice to "become" a member is...? Frankly, I would like Pastor Marky Mark and The Calvinist Bunch to try the demon who obviously stopped Bertha from working along with the one who dreamed up the project in the first place. Also, Mark please do something about the demon who left the pint of Molly's Moon's out on the counter.
Apr 10 Ada-L commented on Good-Bye to Piecora's.
I am glad I didn't grow up in a place where pizza snobbery was so pervasive that it would preclude an enjoyment of Piecora's. And it was there before hipsters, I remember, and I will miss it. I'm glad I was able to take my niece there last year for cheese pizza, root beer, coloring, and Exile on Main Street. Great article David, Bethany and Kelly.
Mar 6 Ada-L commented on Here's How You Buy a Bestseller.
Buying your own books that you plagiarized! Ha haha ha. I would love to think this is some grand Kaufmannesque joke, but I guess it's on the people who pony up at Mars Hill. I am still laughing though.
Feb 27 Ada-L commented on Guide to AWP for People Who Don't Know What an AWP Is.
I saw every one of these archetypes last night. Well done, Peter!
