Every week it seems like there is new art for the “Mad Men” season five premiere, not that we mind. This is the “official” art and it sure is perplexing. Don Draper is staring at a pair of mannequins, including a naked female mannequin, and his own reflection in a department store window. What does it all mean?! Series creator Matt Weiner told The New York Times the ad is “a dreamlike image” and “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be.” Well, that doesn’t help. “By the end of the season, I guarantee you’ll know what it is about,” Weiner promised. Hope so. [NY Times]
Last week we discussed the movies men love, and now it’s the ladies’ turn! Here are 10 titles that often make their way onto women’s favorite movie lists, and a little insight into what exactly makes them so magical…
I’ve never been camping with my period. Actually, I’ve never been camping. But if I ever do go camping AND happen to have my period, I will indeed fling my used tampons on my fellow campers to level the playing field. It would not be fair if I was the only camper lucky enough to get mounted by a wolf penis. [The Yahoo Answers]
Sacha Baron-Cohen walked the Academy Awards red carpet as “The Dictator.” And then this happened. I’m pretty over SBC, but I have to admit I enjoyed seeing Seacrest caught off guard.
We may be a little old to go see Disney movies by ourselves (although not too old to belt out “Part Of Your World” the shower). But we’ll be dragging the nearest seven-year-old to drag to a theater and to see “Brave,” Pixar’s newest computer-animated film with a female protagonist. Lots of Disney flicks star princesses who are sweet, passive, and looking for love; “Brave” stars a spunky gal who is a skilled archer and not content with the life her parents want for her. Princess Merida lives in the Scottish highlands and defies her parents wishes and insists on following her own path in life. Pixar has released a three-minute clip from “Brave” (longer than the teaser trailer they released before) and we have to say we’re digging it! Anyone down for a mass-Frisky reader movie-going trip?

Seth Rogen, host of last night’s Independent Spirit Awards, pretty much killed it in his opening monologue, taking well-deserved shots at Mel Gibson (“Drive made Jews so scary I thought Mel Gibson directed it”) and Lars Von Trier. But his best joke killed three birds with one stone — Brett Ratner, who was forced to resign from producing the Oscars after he used a homophobic slur, Chris Brown, and the Grammy Awards. Referring to Ratner’s swift ouster, Rogen joked that he was better suited to produce the Grammys anyway, because “at the Grammys, you can literally beat the shit out of a nominee and be asked to perform twice.” Oof. Burn. [Perez Hilton]
