Rule 5 Sunday: Carol Cleveland

— compiled by Wombat-socho Carol Cleveland was a comedy actress before getting involved with the guys who invented Monty Python’s Flying Circus, but most of us remember her as the smashing blonde on the show, and in fact she was worried that it might keep her from getting other work. Guess not. Here’s a shot […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Gwen Stefani & The Harajuku Girls

— compiled by Wombat-socho One of the kerfluffles I missed because I don’t pay much attention to celebrity gossip and even less to has-beens like Margaret Cho was the accusation that Ms. Stefani and her backup singers/dancers/entourage were committing the hideous sin of “cultural appropriation”. Given the awkward history of Japanese/Korean relations, a Korean-American ex-comedienne […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Gwen Verdon

— compiled by Wombat-socho I think my first encounter with the hit Broadway play Damn Yankees was on an easy listening station in DC which used to run a program called “Matinees At One” on Sunday afternoons.

Rule 5 Sunday: Rabbit Season!

— compiled by Wombat-socho Apparently the only actress of note born today is Emmy Rossum, who looks like she could use a cheeseburger or five, so tonight’s appetizer is cosplayer Qi’ra Rose. Because it’s always rabbit season if the rabbit in question is Jessica Rabbit. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. Ninety Miles From […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Mindy Robinson

— compiled by Wombat-socho Yeah, I’ve featured the populist actress-turned-politician before, but this was an especially cute pic. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. Ninety Miles From Tyranny: Hot Pick of the Late Night, The 90 Miles Mystery Box Episode #1463, Morning Mistress, and Girls With Guns.  Animal Magnetism: Rule 5 Fossil Fuels Friday […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Rebecca de Mornay

— compiled by Wombat-socho Most people remember Rebecca de Mornay from Risky Business, but to me, she’ll always be the treacherous Lady de Winter from The Three Musketeers. Here she is discussing something with her eeeevil boss, Cardinal Richelieu, played to the hilt by Tim Curry. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. Ninety Miles […]

Rule 5 Sunday: One From The Vaults

— compiled by Wombat-socho Those of you who play video games are probably familiar with the Fallout franchise, which is set in a postapocalyptic North America three centuries after a Sino-American nuclear war has devastated the planet. Most of the survivors are descendants of people who rode out the war and its aftermath in shelters […]
