May 7, 2014 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Savage Love.
@6 Regarding the mysterious brackets, it seems pretty clear that he edited out an offensive term she was using. Judging by the way she organized her acronym, and what word she might have been trying to spell out (probably "FLASH"), I'd say that the offending word she was using was what happens when you combine "she" and "male." Just a hunch.
Mar 12, 2014 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Sixth Woman in Recent Months to Leave Seattle Times Newsroom.
I understand that the situation with Goldy leaving might be a little sensitive, but a post about it would be nice. Just anything: Did he quit or was he fired? Is the speculation about disagreements regarding Kshama Sawant in any way warranted? Jesus, is anyone on the staff going to MISS him, or are you all content with giving the impression that you won't? Seems pretty cold to not say anything.
Jul 17, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Which Flaming Lips Album Should Anna Minard Listen to for the First Time?.
It's gotta be "Transmissions from the Satellite Heart."

"In a Priest Driven Ambulance" is great, and would be a little more of a difficult listen for Anna, but if we're talking about albums that are considered important by record nerds, "Transmissions" is the first Flaming Lips album that fits the bill. It's also their most eclectic, in my view.
Jun 20, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Tacoma Should Name a Park After Dune Creator Frank Herbert.
As a Tacoman, I support this idea. But I'd also love a Richard Brautigan park. I would rather read "Trout Fishing in America" than "Dune" any day.
Jun 4, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Who's the Bigger Dick Here?.
If you read her account of what happened, wherein she whines about what a mean, mean man Jesse Eisenberg is, you realize that she's just a big old baby who came unprepared and couldn't handle his (very mild, almost brotherly) teasing. http://univisionnews.tumblr.com/post/506…

Jan 26, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Parker: A Dumb Movie About a Smart Character.
Flashbacks to scenes that we saw five minutes ago with no added information is, as I've learned from my own experiences as well as podcasts like "How Did This Get Made," have become notorious signifiers of awful movies. Glad you took the bullet for us.

As for Elmore Leonard, judybrowni, I feel like his film adaptations have had a roughly 50/50 success rate, unfortunately. Always a shame to see his words mangled.
Jan 17, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Masterpiece: The Art Auction Game by Parker Brothers.
When do we find out who murdered the blackmailer?
Jan 15, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on Tacoma Goes into the Dark.
@10 They wanted to improve the system because it's already fucked as it is. This is definitely the nail in the coffin, but Pierce Transit has been drastically substandard for a few years. Now it's being permanently crippled, and given a schedule that I can't imagine is useful for much of anybody. What a pity.
Jan 9, 2013 Rev. Adam McKinney commented on The Gayest City in America?.
Wow. Well, I'm from Tacoma, and I'd like to say that we didn't petition to be #1 or anything. Wish that we hadn't won, honestly, because it just gives all you assholes another excuse to shit on my city.
