Once a week, all the Rule 5 stuff from all across the dextrosphere finds its way to Wombat-socho, who puts out a compilation on Sunday, for varying values of “Sunday.” Tyoically, he starts out with an offering of his own, and this past week it was someone you’ve seen here before:
So this weekend, I’ve been decompressing from tax season, doing some catching up with a sister-in-arms I hadn’t seen in 30 years, and watching a lot of TV while doing the first two things. Part of that TV has been the second season of Archer, which is quite possibly the best spoof of James Bond and other spy thrillers out there. One of the main characters of Archer is Lana Kane, super-competent and quite sexy spy who is Archer’s former (and still occasional) girlfriend and frequent mission partner. The voice of Lana is actress Aisha Tyler, who’s rather easy on the eyes herself.
Which, of course, triggered a memory:
[A]n exhibit on the subject of why I’ve got it bad for Aisha Tyler, from her book Swerve: Reckless Observations of a Postmodern Girl, on why doing charity work makes you more interesting:
“The next time you’re out with a bunch of people and they’re all babbling on about how their new SUV came with six cup holders instead of the standard factory-issue four, or how they’re pissed because they couldn’t find a pair of Super Humanity Force Five Superlow Cut Frayed Über-Denim jeans, you can talk about how you spent a weekend building a house for a low-income family and learned how to use a compound mitre saw. In metric. They will be cowed. But they will also be fascinated. Girls will think you’ve got balls, and boys will imagine you with a hammer in your hand, wearing nothing but a utility belt. Everybody wins.”
That was 2004. In the 15 years since, we’ve run a couple of pictures of Ms Tyler, but the last one was 2012. Why not renew an acquaintance?
And, from 2010, the last item in “Strange search-engine queries (219)“:
“aisha tyler” “well hung”: Either this guy has his terms confused, or this is the surprise of the decade.
It’s pretty late in the decade, but I still think I’d be surprised.
Archer ran for seven seasons on FX, and then moved to FXX for two more. So far as I know, there are no plans for an FXXX network.
