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]
Canadians clearly have their priorities straight, because this archival interview with hometown hero Ryan Gosling when he was a teen is being rebroadcast on CBC Television tonight. After all, in Canada (and my heart), gushing about how wonderful Ryan Gosling has always been is, like, incredibly newsworthy. Not complaining! The hip-thrusting move Ryan does around the 1:28 mark is everything. [CBC.ca]
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Lady Gaga needs to take a lil’ break. I’m pretty sure she not only spent whatever cash she has left in her bank account on her new video for “G.U.Y.”, but also had to call in a favor with pal Andy Cohen because she was out of cash and needed more extras. That has to be why he and a bunch of “The Real Housewives” are in this video, right? I mean, why else would Lady Gaga would put Kim Richards in a pink suit and ask her to strum a guitar if she wasn’t desperate? Gaga, I think you need to take a step back, recuperate some of the dough you blew on ArtPop, make sweet love to your hot boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, reevaluate your relationships with predatory assholes like R. Kelly and Terry Richardson, ditch that vomit artist, and come back when you’re interesting again.
Dear Chef Hironori Ikeno,
Two of my favorite things in life are sushi and miniature replicas of larger things, so when I heard you were making mini sushi rolls out of single grains of rice, I was understandably intrigued. Also hungry, because have I mentioned how much I love sushi? Anyway, I read that it takes you about five minutes to make each piece of singular rice sushi (you can crank out regular size rolls in just 1 minute), which include full-flavor ingredients like fresh white fish, radish, and chili. You are obviously very talented in the culinary arts, plus, at the risk of sounding like a pervert, you must have very skilled hands…
Care to, ahem, roll with me sometime?

Remember when Jennifer Lawrence manically cleans the house while singing “Live And Let Die” in “American Hustle”? Well, she also filmed a scene singing to “Evil Ways” by Santana. I think the director made the right call in choosing the first song (no song has more drama than “Live And Let Die”), but I’m all for extra footage of JLaw dancing it out, so let’s rejoice that this scene was released!
