Some of the shots from last night’s Mad Men finale were stunning, and completely unlike anything I can remember from previous episodes.  I loved it.

This is one of my favorite images from what was an amazing season of Mad Men, which I’ve been rewatching the past few days.  Don kind of takes this practice to the extreme, but I admire how he never lets the things he holds onto ever outnumber the things he lets go.
How much longer do we have to wait for season 5?

Out in hardcover: ‘Sterling’s Gold’

You heard correctly.  The seemingly fictitious memoir of our favorite ad man has actually been released for our enjoyment and education.  This is sure to be filled with wisdom, wit, as well as fond remembrances, such as, “I always liked chocolate ice cream, but my mother made us eat vanilla because it didn’t stain anything.”  Get your copy today!

Now if only Harper-Collins would release the underground text by one Omar Little, The Cheese Stands Alone.

This Is Lovely, You Should Listen To It of the Day: Brian Williams’s honey-timbred daughter Allison performs Nat King Cole’s “Nature Boy” to the tune of RJD2’s “A Beautiful Mine” (AKA the Mad Men theme music).

According to the video’s description, the entire performance was recorded live — “no cuts, dubbing, lip-syncing or auto-tuning” — and filmed in one take.

"I always liked chocolate ice cream, but my mother made us eat vanilla because it didn’t stain anything."

~ Roger Sterling, while recording notes for his memoir. Why can I not stop laughing at this line?

John Slattery Profiled in New York Magazine

With Don Draper being turned down by dames and seemingly moving toward S&M, Roger Sterling has really become the Mad Man to emulate. Treating girls like horses and performing in blackface aside, the guy is definitely king.

Watching the Mad Men premiere at The Oak Bar in the Plaza Hotel (New York’s most exciting hotel experience). Pure class.

The Mad Men School of Seduction

As anticipation for the upcoming season of Mad Men continues to grow, I thought I’d pay tribute to those lotharios of Sterling Cooper. This video features almost every pickup line uttered between seasons 1-3.  Have you been having trouble with the ladies?  Well, take a cue from Campbell, Cosgrove, Kinsey, and, of course, the great Roger Sterling, among others.  In less than 3 minutes, you’ll have the skills to score any choice dame.  Mix yourself an Old Fashioned, light that Lucky Strike, and enjoy!
