- If this entire Wade Weaver story (latest update via DBM) had been concocted for a parody news site, they would have rejected it as too perfect by half. I mean, c’mon. A guy who looks like he was sent straight from central casting for this story, running an outfit called the “Heaven Bound Talent Agency,” booking dubious gigs at Glen Hope Baptist Church (or else at the Ramada Inn) with a group called Valor 3. … and that name, Wade Weaver, it’s right out of a Flannery O’Connor story. You could make this up, but people would accuse you of playing to stereotypes.
- A new Gaither Community website has been unveiled. Or Facebook for Homecoming fans, as a friend of mine called it. So maybe it should be Homebook? MyFriends? GatherBook? FaceComing? … Ok … maybe not so much. But speaking of bad neologisms: did anyone else catch Barbara Walters referring to the website “MyFace” the other day. Hehe. Ah Babwa … even her malaprops are naracissitic.
- The Singing News fan awards ballot is not NOT online. This should be welcome news to southerngospelblog and friends, whose “positive daily commentary” rule was being seriously taxed by the SN’s original decision to bypass the web. Fortunately the cognitive dissonance was minimal, contained to a localized thread, and the blog’s regularly scheduled listing has now returned to normal.
