If you haven't checked out M.U.M. lately, I'd highly recommend it.
Scott Alexander has started a new series discussing the great Denny Haney's techniques on some classic effects, while Bob Farmer begins a bimonthly column I can't wait to study.
These (along with the recently completed Perovich series and Norman Beck's musings) have made M.U.M required reading for me.
Mike and Lisa (along with their contributors) are doing a bang up job!
(Nice to see a Robert D. Michaels reference as well...)
