At long last, the final season of “Mad Men” is upon us. It’s been almost a year since we last saw the ad men (and women) at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Cutler, Gleason and Chaough, but that’s quite a mouthful), and we hope tonight’s premiere provides answers to all of questions left unanswered in the last season’s finale.
Like, what will Don Draper do now that he’s on forced sabbatical from the agency? Will Sally ever get recover from walking in on her father schtupping Mrs. Rosen? Is Bob Benson really gay? Or a spy? Or both? How far back has Pete Campbell’s hairline receded? (Oh, wait. We know the answer to that one.)
So, ignore that last question. Concerning everything else: FANS NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS! AND BEFORE PETE’S WIDOW’S PEAK GETS ANY MORE TERRIFYING!
After watching the first season of “The Writer’s Room” on Netflix, I think I’m more than qualified to present the following hypothetical plot points and storylines for the Season 7 finale, airing this Sunday, April 13 at 10/9c on AMC. Some are probably more plausible than others, but I the show is known for its twists; so, really, anything’s possible, right?
Beware: Spoilers ahead. Try not to trip. Keep reading »
The seventh and final season of “Mad Men” starts tonight at 10/9C on AMC. The cast and writers have been tight-lipped about what’ll happen this season, but it’s fun to guess. Will our predictions earn us a BINGO? Let’s play!
Did you know that sloths squeak!? Is this common knowledge to everybody else? I guess I had never thought before about “what does the sloth say?” I don’t know how I existed on this earth for so long without knowing that sloths’ squeaks are as cute as their little smiles. But this video of the sounds they make rocked my whole world. They sound kind of like human babies, only way better! (And with, uh, claws.) [E! Online]
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
I don’t think I’ve seen “Ghost” for about 20 years, back when A) my mother had a crush on Patrick Swayze and B) everything in this movie went over my kindergarten-aged head. It’s probably just as well, because as this new video by CinemaSins so helpfully points out, “Ghost” has more than a few bloopers and inconsistencies. And terrible early-’90s special effects. Enjoy!

Didn’t make it to Coachella in time (or at all) to see Outkast reunite? No worries, their entire set is above! (That crowd is not nearly hyped enough, especially considering how much Andre 3000 and Big Boi must be suffering in all them layers in the desert heat.)
Portland advertising mavens Jason Kreher and Matt Moore wanted to explore the dark subjects that make people laugh, and more specifically, “take something innocent and make it profane.” What better way to do that than replacing the usual corny one-liners printed on popsicle sticks with some seriously dark jokes? Their finished product is called SchadenFreezers, melting popsicle joke GIFs described as “strawberry, blueberry and lemon-flavored joy derived from the suffering of others.” After the jump, check out a few more SchadenFreezers. The ones that I could post without crying, anyway… Keep reading »
The historic Stonewall Riot, which took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City on June 28, 1969, is being made into a big screen film starring easy-on-the-eyes actor Jeremy Irvine (“War Horse,” “Great Expectations”). The film will follow the police raid on the West Village bar, which was a gathering place for gay, lesbian and trans folks. Although the NYPD officially raided Stonewall over liquor license violations, it was one of many intrusions on still-suspect gay and lesbian life. Patrons responded by throwing bottles at cops, which brought out the riot police and sparked days of protests. Stonewall is considered one of the main touchstones for the gay rights movement.
