IN LOVE: Mad Men gets Leibovitz’d

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

I heard that Vanity Fair had been planning a ‘Mad Men’ coverstory but they instead scrapped it in favor of a Farrah / Michael tribute issue.

BOR-ING.

I have nothing bad to say about the woman, but Farrah Fawcett had ZERO affect on my life.  And as for Michael, really, what else is there to say?  Well, I’m sure they’ll come up with something but I’m going to have to have an epic level of boredom to even give those articles a shot.

Anyhoo, Vanityfair.com has the ‘Mad Men’ story and pictorial on the website here.  But I have decided to post the pictures for you, all of them, because maybe you don’t wanna read that whole (long) article, or maybe I want to decorate our site here with some pretty, or maybe I want to get that annoying start-on-itself ’500 Days’ video off page 1….

I thought this would be a good equal opportunity post.  But what’s with January being fully clothed all the time?  That last one could have used some lady skin, he’s in his pajams so why isn’t she in a nightie??  Dear Annie…..

Season 3 starts in 10 days.  Then I’ll shut up about it, promise.

AN AFFAIR: With TV, blah blah Emmys blah

Friday, July 17th, 2009

I was all set to post yesterday about the Emmy nominations, opinion this opinion that, but then my internet crapped out and by this morning when it was working again, it felt so old news.  Like, what am I, a newspaper?

But here I am because it’s all over the place and I can’t ignore it and I think I care.  And also I found this video and I want to post it.

Check out these GQ m*therf*ckers right here:

I can’t even really admit that they say anything that interesting, but damn I forgot how much I love and miss this show and hope it just gobbles up awards.

And also it sure is validating, isn’t it, to see the stuff you lurve up there and nominated (Dexter! House! I’m sorry, I still don’t watch Lost!)

And isn’t it awesome that Jeremy Piven and Katherine Heigl weren’t even nominated…  Hey, don’t call me a bitch, bitch.

And yay for Kristen Wiig!

How the hell did ‘Family Guy’ get nominated before ‘The Simpsons’????  I’m reading all the articles and there’s no real answer for that one.

I’ll stop there, I have a ton o opinions about it all.  Here‘s a list of the nominees.  Memorize it.  We are so gonna do a prediction game and you will just see how terrible I am at this (it’s no Oscars where I am clearly dominant).

(Oh and hell yeah we’re nominated for Smallville in the sound editing category.  Doesn’t include the mixers and our awesome composer Louis Febre who are most of the magic.  But Mike Lawshe, our main sound editor, definitely deserves noms and trophies.)
