Win This! A Copy Of Roger Sterling’s Book

We heard bits and pieces of Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man by Roger Sterling, Jr. on the last season of “Mad Men.” We didn’t think we’d be able to read Roger’s book, especially since he couldn’t get any publishers to bite. But he’s quite the character and is known for his quips and quick-wit barbs, so we think Sterling’s Gold would provide insight into the ad world and business, in general, as well as a look into upper middle-class life in New York during the 1950s and 1960s. [$10.99, Amazon.com]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away two copies of Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man by Roger Sterling, Jr., but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us which is your favorite quip from Roger and why. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners Wednesday, Nov. 24. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

Mega minimalist Vincent Kartheiser, aka Pete Campbell on “Mad Men,” says he won’t be breeding anytime soon, lest his spawn further wreck the planet. Oh, and in case you’re wondering what “xeriscaping” is, it’s gardening to reduce the amount of water needed. That seems like an easier save-the-world strategy than his first two examples.

“It says in the scene, ‘she kisses him back.’ After she kisses me back, then we’re supposed to copulate. I don’t know why but she wouldn’t kiss me back! […] That actress just didn’t want to smooch me. She changed the whole course of Pete Campbell. And Matthew [Weiner] was all, ‘You didn’t rape her! I don’t know why people are saying you raped her! That wasn’t supposed to be rape!’”

—Actor Vincent Kartheiser on his “Mad Men” character Pete Campbell’s alleged rape of an au pair in season three of the show. Isn’t it just like Pete Campbell to blame it on the girl? [Movieline] Keep reading »

Conan O’Brien Gets Interviewed By Don Draper


Last night, Conan O’Brien returned to late-night television, and here are the first four minutes of the show. My favorite moment is when, while trying to find a job, Conan interviews with Don Draper at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Don looks at his resume and says, “It’s 1965—you’re 2 years old. Get out of my office.” Hilarious. What was your favorite moment in last night’s show? [Team Coco] Keep reading »

Sally Draper Would Like To Punch Betty In The Face, Too


Preternaturally intelligent Kiernan Shipka, who plays Sally Draper on our fave show ever, “Mad Men,” was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly about the show and her role on it.
