Rule 5 Sunday: Post-Veterans Day Recovery Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the way Las Vegas celebrates Veterans Day. Just about every fast casual restaurant in town has some kind of free food to offer, and a lot of them start handing it out on Monday. It’s not just the Red Robins and Applebees […]

Rule 5 Sunday: The Hearts of Space

— compiled by Wombat-socho The local classical music station here in Las Vegas is notable for three things: an absence of annoying NPR “news” programs, the most excellent Pipe Dreams program, devoted to music from pipe organs, and the intriguing Music from the Hearts of Space, arguably one of the oldest radio shows devoted to […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Just What It Says On The Label

— compiled by Wombat-socho With the coming of cool weather to Las Vegas, one’s thoughts naturally turn to hot & spicy foods – and, of course, hot and spicy women. What better example than Kate Upton, who in a classic example of truth in advertising, went to a Halloween party dressed as a bottle of […]

Rule 5 Sunday: World Patriarchy Day Edition

Rule 5 Sunday: Time For The Professionals

— compiled by Wombat-socho Week 4 of the NFL season is underway, and this being Vegas, my “home” casino has a (free) game going on that gives away stuff based on how successful one is at picking winners in each week of the season. Me, I don’t follow the NFL, so after a futile first […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Roll Tide!

— compiled by Wombat-socho I admit to not following college football all that much, which is why this introduction didn’t appear three weeks ago when the NCAA season started. Nonetheless, it is time to make the annual obeisance to the altar of the Crimson Tide, and so the appetizer this week is the University of […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Monkey Boy Don’t Care

— compiled by Wombat-socho This week Rule 5 Sunday pays homage to one of the greatest artists in the comic book field today, a man who knows what the people want and gives it to them good and hard. Ladies and gentlemen, the creator of Liberty Meadows, Frank Cho! Of course, Frank’s talent for drawing […]
