She Works Hard For The Money

This week’s Mad Men damn near killed me. It’s the kind of episode that makes you wanna stand up and applaud the writers, and curse their names at the same time. Definitely one of the strongest episodes of the season, if not the whole damn series. It’s a turning point for two major characters, and […]

Don and Joan Play Hookie . . . Buy Sports Cars . . . Get Drinks . . . .

Is there nothing more frustratingly satisfying than the relationship between Don Draper and Joan Holloway? These are two people you’d think would have been gotten biblical by now, but no. They just have too much respect for one another to cross that line, and I hope it stays that way.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Looks Fun And Bloody!!!

With G.I. Joe Retaliation unceremoniously moved from it’s original release date of June 29th (Seriously, Paramount?!?!), that’ll be less competition for Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, which comes out a week prior, to content with! Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film paints a bloody past for the man who would be president, as […]

Thick’Um Thursday #5

Being a geek, I love me some good cosplay, but for every girl like this week’s entry, there are at least ten or so folks who ruin it for everyone! But back to this young lady, she is most certainly top of the pops, if I may say so! Belle Chere Not only does she […]

The Return of Fat Betty!!!!

I know, I’m one to talk, right? But I figure, we’re talking about a fictional character, so making light of said character’s “battle of the bulge” should be fine, right?! I have to say, seeing Betty again was great for all the wrong reasons! Let me count the ways:

Eating Your Heart Out #3: Maximum Mac & Cheese

If I’ve missed anything in my quest to lose weight, it’s a some good mac & cheese. Especially since one of my regular dine n’ drink spots in DC closed (although they’re planning to reopen in the summer), and the mac & cheese there was pretty damn awesome.

Thick’Um Thursday #4

Jordin Sparks Yeah, you been on your weight loss kick for a minute now, but you still that good-good thick’ums to me, lady!!! Break out da milk n’ cookies!!!!

Eating Your Heart Out #2: What The F*** Is A Pumpple?!?!

Since one commenter hipped me to this monstrosity, I’ve been oddly intrigued. I’m disgusted and fascinated at the same time! Created by the Flying Monkey Patisserie, in Philadelphia, The Pumpple consists of apple and pumpkin pies baked inside vanilla and chocolate cakes covered with vanilla buttercream. It was 15 pounds, measures a foot tall, and […]

PIZZA HOUSE!!!! **Click!**

No, Roger Sterling doesn’t get blown by anyone else’s mother-in-law this week, but we did see focus turn back to our guy Pete Campbell, who appears to be in a serious rush to have a mid-life crisis! It’s equal parts hilarious and sad, and as much as I used to think of him as a […]

The Miseducation Of Sally Draper

If it wasn’t clear already, it’s been made pretty clear now that Sally Draper must have had the worst childhood ever in the 60s, if Mad Men is any indication. She’s already had to suffer through the divorce of her parents, the ongoing psychological abuse from her ice queen of a mother (and to an […]
