Mind Of Man: Why Everybody Hearts Dapper Don Draper

Here are some of the things I learned from watching the second season finale of AMC's Emmy Award winning show "Mad Men": In the psudeo-historical world of "Mad Men", work days start at 10 in the morning, because professionals needed the extra time to style their perfect hair. Men who sleep around are studs and…

Don Draper’s Guide To Picking Up Women

Last night, my boyfriend, I mean, Jon Hamm (Don Draper on "Mad Men") hosted "Saturday Night Live" -- he was actually very, very funny! He IS perfect. Sigh. Anyway, in the skit above, Don Draper delivers his "Guide To Picking Up Women". Quite honestly, this would work on me. Full transcript, after the jump.

Mad Men: Don Draper, You Are So BUSTED

I missed Peggy this week. Our favorite glass ceiling breaker took much of this week's episode of Mad Men off and the episode, instead, focused on new assistant Jane, Don Draper's new car (to replace the one he crashed when he was drunk driving with Bobbie Barrett), and Cooper's new Mark Rothko painting. Needless to…

Quickies!: Cannot Stop Watching Rachel Zoe Project Previews.

The only that will make the time fly by until The Rachel Zoe Project starts next week is the premiere of 90210 TONIGHT. Anonymous, the anti-Scientology group, is planning on staging a peaceful protest on the opening night of the Katie Holmes-starring play All My Sons. I would like to join their Suppressive Persons club.

Damn You Don Draper: Sex, Mirrors, And Mad Men

Last night's episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling Cooper work…

Mad Men’s Peggy Olson Is Our New Hero

Last night's episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper -- namely, "Can Draper ever change?" Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we learned Pete'…

Crushes As Foreplay

Confession: I’m having a secret affair with my 21-year old Irish doorman. It’s such a secret, not even HE knows. The other night, when my fiancé was out, my doorman – I don’t even know his name – came upstairs to my apartment to replace three light bulbs. As he stood on the ladder, screwing…

How Do We Still Love You, Don Draper?

The same week John Edwards admitted to cheating on his wife with Rielle Hunter, Mad Men's Don Draper lost his (short) battle NOT to cheat on his wife. The comparisons are easy, if shallow -- both dashing, charming, well-manicured, with wives that ooze kindness, morality, loyalty, and selfless struggle. While John Edwards does not have…

The Daily Hotness: Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm plays Don Draper on Mad Men, you know, that show I am totally obsessed with right now. Don is mysterious and complex and seriously sexy, even when he is being a total a-hole to his wife. Relative to the other d-bags he works with at the Sterling-Cooper ad agency, he treats his secretary…
