Who is Eagleson and where did Eagleson's law originate?

Programmers soon learn that
“Any code of your own that you haven't looked at for six or more months might as well have been written by someone else.”
This maxim, generally cited as “Eagleson's Law [of Programming]” (and often extended “Eagleson is an optimist; the real number is more like 3 weeks”) has been floating around the internet for ages*. But who is Eagleson, and where did this notion originally appear? [more inside]

Let's go down the psycho path! (that is the slogan I would come up with if I were a board game publisher. It is lame enough to work!)

Board Game Filter: So my mom called today, and asking about an old board game she loved. She used to play it with her cousin -- she thinks it'd have been about '73-ish. She remembers it being called "Psychopath" (or perhaps "Psycho Path"), but my google-fu failed on that name, so perhaps that is not it. (Actual Gameplay Description Inside) [more inside]

Post-punk Leonard Cohen?

Calling all indie music geeks... I need help identifying a band. iPhone update nuked all the downloaded music in my Rhapsody app. I was listening to a band that I liked a lot. Singer had sort of baritone, with interesting lyrics. Imagine a post-punk, slightly less-lackadaisical Leonard Cohen. Pretty sure record is relatively recent and band name has the word 'Future' in it. Any ideas?

Don't go in there, kid!

What movie or TV show was this? This has been nagging at me for years! Around 1978 or 1979, when I was 7 or 8 years old, I remember seeing a creepy teaser on TV for an upcoming movie, or episode of something, in which a man wearing dark glasses is speaking to someone off-screen. He says something like, "Don't go in there, kid, unless you want to end up ... like this!" And then he removes the dark glasses, and instead of eyes he has two things that look like raised, white ridges with horizontal slits cut into them. Something like Inuit snow goggles, but set into the eyes instead of connected in the middle. I never saw the show and this is literally all I remember about it. A friend of mine thinks it might be The Omega Man, but I'm pretty sure it isn't.

Identify this song: Camarero

Camarero something something me muero de sed: What is the name of this Spanish language song about being at a bar on the beach and trying to get the waiter's attention for a drink? I last heard it in 1995 and expect it was made only a few years earlier. I thought the name was just Camarero, but I am not getting the right song by Google. The singer is male, the music generically Latin, and I am pretty sure you hear the drink being opened.

Interactive fiction game title...

I'm trying to remember the name of a piece of Interactive Fiction (IF) I once played, but remember almost nothing about. You start the game, sleeping next to your lover--and you can decide the gender of both your character and the lover--in what is essentially a hunting lodge. Your character can do something like shift into other times or other identities--I can't quite remember. I recall that it is supposed to be very long by normal IF standards. Any help?

Help me identify this song... Pet Sounds + Joni Mitchell = ?

Help me find a song! It was on Sirius radio on July 23, between 10am and 3pm mountain time. It was a female singer singing over what sounded like a very Pet Sounds-like arrangement. She sounded like Joni Mitchell to me. (Maybe it was Joni Mitchell!) The song also sounded very familiar. I thought it was Both Siders, Now, but I listened to that song again and that's just guitar. This song sounded just a little more upbeat, more poppy, but equally as beautiful. Any ideas?

Identify song about "trees on their knees" from a 1990s mixtape

Please help identify a song, or a band that played it - lyrics are below. It was on a now long-dead mixtape made in the mid-90s by a San Francisco resident, so I've always thought it was a San Francisco or Northern CA band, but could be wrong. The singer was female, an alto, IIRC, devoid of vibrato; the band had a pair of violins and a couple of acoustic guitars and employed different tempos within this song. The lyrical focus was ecology.

Know any stories about camouflage tattoos?

A recent conversation reminded me of something I once read. It was in a Playboy magazine, likely mid-80s, and it was either a short story or an excerpt from a novel if Playboy even does that kind of thing. From what I remember it was written in the first person about a guy (a reporter?) who hears about this Vietnam vet that has learned some art of tattooing which acts as the perfect camouflage.

Do you this Poem?

I am looking for a poem that I read in Time or Newsweek or some such magazine about ten years ago (probably longer). I am almost sure that the poet was Scandinavian and the poem was about the co-existence of good and bad things in the world. The poem illustrated this concept by talking about the existence of a tongue amongst sharp teeth and how a gentle heart is held by the rib cage. Any ideas? Thanks.
