Jon Hamm Talks About His Previous Career At Skinemax


David Letterman sat down for a chat with my boyfriendMad Men“‘s Jon Hamm, and the conversation ventured into the territory of Hamm’s former career as a set dresser on those late-night Cinemax movies where chicks run around naked and guys hump them. During this “fallow period” of his acting career, Hamm was a prop wrangler on soft-core movies. “It was an exciting moment in my life,” Hamm reminisces. “It’s a closed set so only, you know, vital personnel are there. Then you see the guy that, like, runs the craft service thing, like, kind of eating a hot dog, staring at it. And it’s like, why does Jimmy need to be here?” Maybe they can work this story into a Sterling Cooper plot line? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

365 Days In Paris: The Liar Who Didn’t

A few days ago, I became convinced that Mr. C had gone on a date with another woman and lied to cover it up. The evidence:

  1. The morning of the incident, he had logged in to OK Cupid. It had previously been almost two weeks since he had.
  2. He kept changing our plans, sort of suspiciously. At first, we were to get a drink post-work, around 7:30. Then, he emailed to say that he was suddenly going to have dinner at his friend’s house, which is pretty much in the suburbs. He’d call me between 7 and 8 to set up something for later, around 9:30. Hmm … seemed unlikely to me that he’d make a 9:30 p.m. date back in the center of Paris.
  3. He didn’t call until 11 p.m. And he always, always calls when he says he will. And, he left his message in English. He always leaves voicemails in French. This one felt off and his excuses seemed rushed and disconnected.
  4. The next morning, he sent me an email apologizing, explaining what happened. He got very caught up in a game of Scrabble and had lost track of the time. His description of the Scrabble game just seemed a bit too detailed and contrived.

For The Week Of October 12-18, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Don’t even try to second-guess anyone’s motives. If you have to get to the bottom of the story, be direct and go for it. Otherwise, if you let your mind wander anymore, it will take you to the darkest and most dramatic conclusions, draining more life from you than necessary. Seriously, your neurosis is much deadlier than anything else that can harm you right now.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

If this week doesn’t have you feeling topsy-turvy with your emotions, then consider yourself lucky, as in having a solid life that is impenetrable from the universal forces that are sure to throw some major fireworks into your psyche, having you feeling the effect of decisions you’ve made more intensely and feeling as if you might have to break free from it all.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

There won’t be anything holding back your ego this week, as you’ll be hell-bent on reaching the top of the ladder you’ve been climbing. Whatever your ambitions, this is when you will get out-and-out ruthless, being driven by all the subconscious longings you’ve had lodged in your past that need rectification now. To say the least, world watch out!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Finally, it’ll feel as if fate is playing on your side again, as you’ll hear words you need to hear and get opportunities that appear fantastical. No, this isn’t the time when life will follow any rational plotline, but it will be better. Seems you will be in your element, as spontaneity brings more than a few surprises to really wrap your legs around.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

By the week’s end, just give into your libido and f**k your brains out. It’ll be the only thing to get you thinking properly again — it will align your chi. Otherwise, all work and no play could be your downfall, as the pressure gets more intense with money issues, power plays and determined frenemies looking to bring you down. You know it: Hop on top and don’t look back!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

As long as you can think it is, it’s possible. Even if you only have a fantasy to hold on to, go with it. You have nothing to lose this week if you want to get lost in your head and see your love life with rose-colored glasses. If a miracle is going to happen, it might happen now, and thinking it is the only way to creating it.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

All those irritations that made you into a passive-aggressive mess lately are about to get flipped around, putting you into power lady mode and making you very aggressive with those who bug you. Seems this new direct approach will be more than just effective, but downright scary to those around you — which, no doubt, will please you beyond belief.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This week, a switch should be going off in your brain which will suddenly make you see how amazing, incredible, sexy, smart and perfect your baby is for you. Yes, let the groveling begin! Time to pull out all the romantic stops and fly free on the wings of love/lust. Give all that you can, because right about now is when fate says it’s time to pay the piper.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Time to redefine domestic bliss, as your nesting mode goes into overdrive. If you’re with someone, consider yourself booked. If you’re single, then expect to be extra focused on shacking up with someone to close the doors and throw out the key with — which means sharpening your bulls**t meter and passing on those with “potential” for those who are already flexing their might.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

As the queen of thinking fast on your feet, this is when your off-the-cuff monologues are going to step up to a whole new award-winning level. The things you will spew won’t only seem insane but fantastical, even to you. However, despite the traffic accident you think you’ll cause, it seems you don’t know it all and that learning something new is in your cards.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Time to put decisions into action and to really test your self-esteem. The strategizing session is over and implanting ideas needs to start now. If this means any last-minute battles with demons, you better be done with them by the 17th. After that, excuses won’t work and you’ll be completely on your own.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You’re not the apologizing type and why should you be? If that someone can’t get who you are and how you operate and expects you to coddle him by lowering your own enthusiasm and strength, it’s time for him to think again. This time around, when it comes to discrepancies in relationship points of view, you should definitely stand your ground.

    Paris Hilton Rejects A Seat Next To Howard Stern, And Other Celebrity Seat Switchers

    Last weekend, Paris Hilton freaked out when she found out she was seated next to Howard Stern and his wife at a Kylie Minogue concert in Las Vegas. Instead of starting a feud about their mutual distaste for one another, Paris politely asked to be moved. I wonder if her new next-seat neighbor was thrilled about the placement? [NY Post]

    As you might imagine, with all the drama that goes down in celebrityville, sometimes people are put too close to the people who make their blood boil. That’s why it’s time for a game of celebrity musical chairs.

    8 Sets Of Flannel Sheets That Will Make You Want To Stay In Bed

    flannel sheets g9 jpg
    The heat hasn’t been turned on in my building yet, but it’s beginning to get chilly in my apartment, especially in the mornings. And when the mercury drops, there’s nothing cozier than a set of flannel sheets. Not only are they snugly, but because thread count doesn’t matter as much with this type of fabric, you can get a super soft set for not much money (especially since a number of sites are having flannel sales right now). We’ll be putting on our flannel sheets this weekend and staying in bed all day, drinking tea and watching movies. Come Monday morning, it’s going to be awfully hard to get up when the alarm starts beeping.
