“Mad Men” Gets Futuristic

Could this be the start of a new hobby for those of us suffering from end-of-summer malaise? Yesterday, lexicographer (I had to look it up, too) Ben Zimmer noticed that one of the props on this past Sunday’s episode of “Mad Man” was a three-volume edition of The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, which was first published in 1987 — well over 20 years after the current season supposedly takes place. Sterling Cooper’s CFO Lane Pryce — the character whose desk housed the OED — explained on Twitter: “Regarding my office library, I was asked to hold on to those books by a nervous young man named McFly.”

The set decorators on “Mad Men” are usually meticulous with this kind of thing, but now I can’t help but wonder what else from 1965 on has slipped by unnoticed? Show of hands: how many of us will watch the show next week with an eagle eye looking for a dog-eared copy of a John Irving novel on Peggy’s bookshelf, or a bottle of Diet Coke in Joan’s kitchen? Or, perhaps, your seasonal malaise isn’t quite as bad as mine… [via NY Mag] Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Melanie Griffith & Brad Pitt Rehab Bound? Kendra & Kourtney Breastfeeding?

Just when you’ve eased into your week, the tabloids try to elbow their way in to distract you from your work. Look away! But you can’t. You must know who’s in love, who’s in rehab, and who’s having a much worse week than you. It’s only natural that you indulge in some guilty reading and we’ve summed up the top stories so you don’t have to even leave your desk/house. You’re welcome. Keep reading »

TLC To Perform For The First Time In Seven Years

Don’t go chasing waterfalls. Instead, make sure to get tickets (or at least set up your DVR) to Justin Timberlake‘s Shriners Hospital for Children benefit concert in Las Vegas on October 17, where TLC will be giving their first live performance in seven years. In 2002, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes was killed in a car accident, but the two remaining members, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas (who has a VH1 dating show premiering soon), know the show must go on. Also performing at the concert will be Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys and Ciara. No scrubs, indeed. [People] Keep reading »

Are People Inclined To Date Those Who Look … Familial?

On VH1′s latest celeb-reality-dating-show, Antonio Sabato Jr. — famous for filling out a pair of Calvins — is looking for wifey #3 and he’s got the help of his super opinionated (because she’s Italian, duh!) mother. Of the contestants that remain, the one who seems most likely to win is Christi Shake, a Playboy playmate with bright red hair and a big smile. In fact, she looks a lot like Mamma Sabato, who also rocks a vibrant shade of red hair. Is this just a coincidence or is Antonio looking for someone who reminds him of his precious mommy? And, for that matter, are we all kind of, sort of, drawn to mates that remind us of family? Keep reading »

Is Your Man A Head Case?

Is your man a head case? These human beat boxes are, literally. Chris Cairns made this very amusing video starring Neurosonics Audiomedical Labs Inc. I will never look at two turntables and a microphone the same way again. [Videos.antville.org] Keep reading »

Sex & Celluloid: The Best Threesomes That Never Were

While “(500) Days of Summer” is only the latest warm weather flick to explore the delights and wonders of monogamy, there’s been a relative dearth of love triangles in recent cinema. Are ménages à trois no longer in fashion? It seemed like the ’90s were full of threesomes, coming (so to speak) in all different shapes and genders: Was Gregg Araki’s “Splendor” really that bad that it signaled the end of a decade-long exploration into the not-so-single life? Below, four films that promised us the magical number 3 but never delivered on the company, much less the crowd. Keep reading »

Kate Gosselin Does Larry King

Last night Kate Gosselin was on “Larry King Live” where she reminded us again why we should all be on her side and not her estranged husband’s. She admits (with a little hesitancy) that Jon is a good father and that there’s a lot they agree on when it comes to raising their children, but she let it be known there are decisions he’s making that she wouldn’t necessarily make herself. Hmm … like cavorting around with dates half her age and spending her children’s college fund on extravagant gifts like BMWs and porches for her summer flings, maybe? “I’m looking towards the future and the decisions of today that affect tomorrow … more so than he is,” Kate said diplomatically. Asked whether she feels single, Kate replied, “I am not yet divorced … officially.” “But how do you feel?” Larry pressed. “I don’t know,” she replied honestly. She admits that she’s lonely, but far too busy to even think about dating right now. I guess that’s another thing she and Jon differ on. Clip above. Keep reading »

Getting Cast On “The Hills” Isn’t Easy But Pays Bank

Doug Reinhardt, the baseball player who dated Lauren Conrad, recently reunited with Paris Hilton, and has the douchiest website ever, can’t seem to get himself back onto “The Hills.” According to the New York Post, the other show regulars get paid ridiculous amounts of money for their appearances. But Doug guest stars for free and just can’t seem to snag a contract. [NY Post]

Yes, yes, we’ve figured out by now that “The Hills” are alive with the sound of bulls**t. But how exactly does one get “cast” on this show? How do these contracts and payouts work? And who’s raking in the most? Read on. Keep reading »

Aubrey O’Day Takes On New Order


New Order’s amazing “Bizarre Love Triangle” is one of the most-covered songs of all time. I was down with Frente’s acoustic take on it for that movie “Threesome” forever ago. But I dunno about Aubrey O’Day‘s new version, which throws out the old lyrics and makes it all about how she’s media roadkill. Sample lyric: “Everytime they see us fallin’, they get down on their knees and hate.” Uh, no wonder Diddy kicked her out of Danity Kane? Keep reading »
