Rule 5 Sunday: Natalie Dormer

— compiled by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. One can criticize HBO’s Game Of Thrones series for a lot of things, but one thing you can’t carp at is the casting. There were a plethora of attractive ladies playing major roles, and one of them was natalie Dormer, whose character Margaery Tyrell got a big […]

Rule 5 Monday: Julie London

— compiled by Wombat-socho Somehow I have managed to get through over ten years of these posts without once featuring singer, actress, and pinup model Julie London, but today I correct that unfortunate omission. Probably best known to us as nurse Dixie McCall on the hit TV series Emergency!, produced by her ex-husband Jack Webb […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Paulina Porizkova

— compiled by Wombat-socho Remember when Sports Illustrated used to have hot chicks in swimsuits adorning their issues, as opposed to landwhales espousing “body positive” Fatness? I remember, but I’m old. Anyway, while downloading The Cars’ debut album this weekend, it struck me that the Widow Ocasek would make a fine appetizer for this week’s […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Carla Gugino

— compiled by Wombat-socho Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. The events of this past week have been reminding me of the end of the Watchmen movie, with Rorschach defiantly snarling “No compromise! Not even in the face of Armageddon!” We aren’t here for politics, though, so let me instead present Carla Gugino, who […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Honor Blackman

— compiled by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. It was very tempting to do a reprise of Diana Rigg, since she’s clearly the best Bond Girl, but unfortunately her James Bond was the soft & floppy George Lazenby instead of Sean Connery (RIP) so there went that connection. Instead, I went with another actress who […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Jessica Alba

— compiled by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. There are any number of excellent TV shows and films one could select from to showcase Jessica Alba, but for my money the best one is the dance scene from Sin City. I’m not skillful enough to post an animooted version, so the still pic is going […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Dawn Wells

— compiled by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. Happy birthday to Dawn Wells, former Miss Nevada and TV actress, best known for her role as Mary Ann Summers on Gilligan’s Island. She also appeared in a lot of other roles in various TV shows, eventually winding up with a career that lasted over 50 years. […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Damn It, Janet

— compiled by Wombat-socho I don’t want to hear ONE WORD about her politics, okay?* Today is Susan Sarandon’s birthday, and for young men of a certain age she’s always going to bring to mind her role as Janet Weiss** in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, during which we were treated to plenty of shots […]
