Watch Another Vague "Mad Men" Teaser!

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that the latest teaser for “Mad Men”‘s seventh and final season doesn’t tell us a whole lot about what to expect. After all, this is the show that teases each upcoming episode with a series of unrelated soundbites taken out of any discernible context. But whatever! Everyone — Don, Betty, Peggy, Megan, Roger, THE WHOLE GANG — is at the airport, flying in the brightest, craziest, tackiest  styles of the era. (Cool daisy pin, Peggy.) Are they going or coming? Is this a metaphor? April 13 can’t get here soon enough. [NYMag.com]

Jessica Paré: “Of Course I’m A Feminist”

“Of course I’m a feminist … if you’re not for the equal treatment of men and women, then you’re a fascist.”

Yup, what Jessica Paré said. See, I knew there was a reason I loved Canadians. (Also, those earrings are insane.) [Fashion Magazine]

Smoking Blows!

What is Photoshop for other than to create nonsense?  At least this nonsense is for a good cause.  To mark Thursday’s Great American Smoke Out, a national day to quit smoking, Ellen DeGeneres took some “Mad Men” clips, removed all references to smoking and replaced them with party blowers. Don Draper would have been a hell of a lot less mercurial with party blowers! Slightly more annoying, though. [Ellen TV]

Kiernan Shipka Is A Riot Grrrl

Well, this photo sure does fill me with joy. Kiernan Shipka — best known as Sally Draper on “Mad Men” — may only be 13 years old, and thus not alive when riot grrrl was in its hey day, but its influence lives on. I wonder what she’s listening to on her iPod. Bikini Kill? L7? Hole? Bratmobile? Soooo many badass possibilities. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Update: Want Kiernan’s Riot Grrrl T-shirt for yourself? I found it!

  • In a time when there is a TV show about pretty much everything, Janie Bryant, costume designer for “Mad Men,” has landed her own reality show called “Janie Bryant’s Hollywood.” The show is now being pitched to cable channels like Bravo, E!, and Lifetime. Hopefully this just means seeing even more rad ‘60s fashion from Bryant. [Styleite]

For The Sylvia In All Of Us: Almie Rose’s Drunken “Mad Men” Makeup Tutorial

Almie Rose Makeup Tutorial Mad Men Style
I May Not Be Conventionally Pretty, But I Have A Nice Couch

Our dear friend Almie Rose is back and with a new drunken makeup tutorial for how to look like “Mad Men”‘s resident married upstairs apartment hussy Sylvia Rosen. You want to look like Sylvia, right? With the lips, and the eyeshadow, and the potentially explosive extramarital affair with Don Draper? Well, regardless, Almie has a thing or two to teach you about a thing or two.

Oh also, Almie has a book out! What do you do when your ex leaves you for his A-list actress ex girlfriend? How do you land a musician boyfriend? What’s it like to make a total jackass of yourself when you meet that actor you’ve had a crush on for years? What would When Harry Met Sally… look like in 2013? Am I hungry? These questions and more are answered and explored by Almie Rose in I Forgot To Be Famous, essays and how-to’s about dating, relationships, living in Los Angeles, and how they all crash into each other, like the car chase scene in the mall in the Blues Brothers movie, which she hasn’t seen, but is not at all opposed to. I Forgot to Be Famous will be available for pre-order tomorrow and on-sale on Monday!

  • SPOILER: Why wasn’t there more of a discussion about the prostitute who nursed a young Dick Whitman back to health and then took sexual advantage of him? [The Atlantic]
  • There’s an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal today by editorial board member James Taranto that posits the military’s effort to clean up sexual assault is a “war on male sexuality.” As blogger Amanda Marcotte put it so well on Twitter, “Most men don’t rape, actually, James Taranto. But implying that they do emboldens rapists who want to believe they’re normal.” [Wall Street Journal]

“Mad Men” Recap: Joan Holloway Leans In

Nobody Puts Joan Holloway In A Corner!

If you made it through “Game Of Thrones” last night and still had the emotional stamina to watch “Mad Men,” you were at least rewarded with an amazing Joan Holloway episode. Joan has been given quite a bit of side-eye from her fellow partners for the way in which she snagged her position (you know, sleeping with that icky executive from Jaguar), and she’s not going to take their disrespect anymore! When Joan meets an Avon executive who wants to do business with the agency (“I thought it was a date, but it was even better!”), she refuses to usurp power over the relationship to Pete. Meanwhile, Peggy is initially resistant to bending the standard rules of hierarchy — possibly because she, too, has been judgmental of Joan’s rise to prominence — she eventually realizes that they both, as women, have had to seize what opportunities they could to “lean in.” It’s a BAMF moment for all the women of the newly dubbed Sterling, Cooper & Partners. Four clips above!

7 TV Shows That Have Seriously Sexy Sex

With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.

But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers. Keep reading »
