In the latest issue of GQ, Elisabeth Moss (a.k.a. Peggy Olsen from Mad Men) is profiled in the typical GQ way. They describe her as their “favorite workplace vixen,” which makes me think they’ve never actually watched an episode of Mad Men. She poses in her underwear, talks about a sex scene on her excellent-sounding new show Top Of The Lake (they had me at “Twin Peaks“), and…plays a nice little game of “Fuck, Marry, Kill” with the men of Sterling Cooper.

Jessica Paré, the woman who plays Don Draper‘s wife, has a theory on why we love it when fictional characters cheat – as Don Draper seems likely to do in season six of Mad Men (premiering this Sunday at 9! Party at my house! You bring the supplies!) More
Remember how Jon Hamm‘s allegedly gargantuan penis was allegedly distracting the whole Mad Men set so a staffer allegedly told him to wear some underwear (then reported the alleged incident to a major media outlet)? Well, he had something to say about it in his Rolling Stone interview this week. More
In the latest issue of Wired Magazine, Alison Brie (of Mad Men and Community fame) hams it up in some photos illustrating an article about the new ways people are using technology to engage with TV shows, and how outdated the Nielsen rating system is. (And how we have gotten better TV shows as a result.) None of the pictures within are quite as great as the cover shot, which shows what Trudy Campbell would look like if she murdered her horrid, sniveling prig of a husband and took his job. But they do show off Ms. Brie’s range as an actress, which is something the article discusses, and she looks great in all of them. Now, let’s do some “Mad Math.” More
Jon Hamm has a penis, and apparently you can see it. More
That moment you’ve all (maybe) been waiting for is nearly upon us. No, I don’t mean Game of Thrones, silly – I’m talking about season 6 of Mad Men. But before us normal people get a chance to see the show, there was a snazzy red carpet premiere over at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles because television people like to do those, too.
As one might have guessed, everybody looked sufficiently classed up in that people who are in Mad Men are expected to. However, it seems as though they may have caught the same “tastefully boring” disease that Ashley revealed of the Game of Thrones red carpet. More
The Daily Mail has rounded up some of the most sexist ads from the “Mad Men” era. They note that:
“To push their products, advertisements from the Fifties and Sixties simultaneously created and reinforced gender stereotypes, depicting women as brainless beauties and kitchen-dwellers who, most of the time, need help looking slimmer.”
OH GOD THEY ARE AWFUL. More
Mad Men/Matthew Weiner is not being sued for for sexual harassment, which was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard a model was suing Mad Men. Because somehow I’ve decided that Matt Weiner behaves exactly like everyone on the show, and it’s completely autobiographical. That feels right. More

I never really smoked. I certainly don’t now that it’s banned pretty much everyplace in New York. In spite of that, when I smell smoke on someone’s clothing, I find myself almost immediately nostalgic. That man or woman strikes me as a last holdout of a bygone world, bravely flutter-kicking against any currents of change. I feel about them the way I might have felt happening upon someone making horsehoes in 1920. That is to say, I don’t miss cigarettes so much as I miss the culture that went with them. More
Everyone’s favorite TV
Medea mom is featured prominently in the spring/summer issue of Vs Magazine, and she looks pretty different from how we’re used to seeing her. Apparently, someone in the art department decided it was a good idea to do the ol’ “playing against type” trick on her with a bunch of black eyeliner and what looks like some temporary black hair dye. And you know what? It totally was. Maybe it’s just my gothic sensibilities showing through, but I tend to think a little darkness and gloom make almost any conventionally attractive blonde about twenty times hotter. It does look like she’s in the process of dyeing her hair in some of the pictures, though. More
Women are often described using words one would never attribute to men. Whether those phrases are said with good intentions or are back-handed compliments, these adjectives would sound ridiculous and completely out of place if used to describe a guy. After all, when is the last time you referred to your male coworker as feisty? And have you ever complained that your dad was acting hormonal? More
The first picture of Season 6 Mad Men is out on AMC. We have to make predictions immediately now. I have decided to make only extremely accurate predictions, because I will derive great pleasure in being right. More
