Rule 5 Sunday: All You Need Is Kill

— compiled by Wombat-socho This was, of course, the title of the manga and light novel that became the most excellent combat SF movie Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise as the cowardly protagonist Major William Cage and this week’s appetizer, Emily Blunt, as the heroine Sgt. Rita Vrataski. The movie is that rare thing, […]

Rule 5 Sunday: The Treasury Secretary’s Wife

— compiled by Wombat-socho A few weeks ago, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and his wife, ex-actress Louise Linton, had a photo taken with a freshly printed sheet of dollar bills. Autistic screeching from the press ensued, as it does whenever someone from the Administration so much as farts, but I thought the fuss over the […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Thanksgiving Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho It’s that time of the year again, when families all over America reunite to celebrate the blessings of liberty by consuming mass quantities of home-cooked food and watching football. Or, going out to the local casino buffet, as the case may be. So, this week we celebrate the popular trope of […]

Rule 5 Sunday: No, Not That Asia

— compiled by Wombat-socho I readily admit that when it comes to actresses named Asia, my first thought is of the piano-playing MENSA member and former porn star Asia Carrera. That’s not the one we’re looking at; rather, actress and director Asia Argento wound up in the news this week when hostile reactions to her […]

Late Night With Rule Five Tuesday:
Rebel Girls

— compiled by Wombat-socho Another difficult weekend, but not without its compensations; it looks like I’ll be heading back to college in the new year, starting to finish my accounting degree at UNLV. Therefore, some Rebel Girls for your delectation before we get into the links. Insert the standard disclaimer here. Ninety Miles From Tyranny […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Pussycat No More

— compiled by Wombat-socho “Who says A must say B,” some old Bolshevik once said, and in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, it seems only reasonable to turn a jaundiced eye on the music business. Rose McGowan deserves a lot of credit for blowing the lid off Weinstein’s disgusting habits, and there’s a […]
