Rule 5 Sunday: Force It

— compiled by Wombat-socho I was going to name this week’s post after the classic rock tune by UFO, Only You Can Rock Me, but I was pretty sure I’d done that already. Besides, why not throw more gasoline on the Fake Rape Epidemic fire with a deliberately ambiguous work by the same band? As […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Pipe Dreams

— compiled by Wombat-socho Background music for this week’s edition of Rule 5 Sunday is provided by “Pipe Dreams”, a weekly radio show hosted by Michael Barone and devoted to the music of the pipe organ. This week’s appetizer is provided by Canadian organist Maxine Thevenot, who I found after sorting through quite a few […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Showgirls and Other Attractions

— compiled by Wombat-socho This week I’m trying to get back into the blogging saddle, so to speak; you might even see the return of Live at Five tomorrow!

Rule 5 Sunday: The Road To Sin City

— compiled by Wombat-socho So, after getting through the last days of packing, shipping a truckload of stuff to Vegas, and stuffing the remainder of my worldly goods in the back of the Jeep, I’m chilling at Balticon, an SF convention slowly evolving into a geek culture con, and killing a little time between programming […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Last Dance In Washington

— compiled by Wombat-socho This will be the last Rule 5 Sunday post from the burrow in Springfield, Virginia; next Sunday I’ll be in Baltimore for Balticon and a farewell party with friends, and the Sunday after that, I should be in Las Vegas, God willing. So it seems only appropriate that this week’s appetizer […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Station To Station

— compiled by Wombat-socho Welcome to another addition of Rule 5 Sunday, a staple of this blog since the days when Our Founder received the vision that became known as The Underpants Gnome Theory of Blogging, and its Five Rules, perhaps the most important of which is Rule Five, which requires the adoration of attractive […]
