Tweet Mad Men came through for me last night! It was totally worth skipping the FKA twigs concert I’d planned to attend in order to see the finale in real time. Do I really have to say that there are spoilers here? There are spoilers here! I honestly didn’t know what to expect, though there […]

Tweet I’ve spent all week wondering what’s going to happen on the series finale of Mad Men on Sunday. If you could film what was happening in my brain, it would be like this. Will you be watching on Sunday? Also why isn’t there a video of the many times Joan says, “Ex-CUSE me?!”

Tweet Are all of you Anne Boleyn/Tudor history fans watching Wolf Hall on Masterpiece on PBS? I saw the excellent theatrical adaptations of Hilary Mantel’s historical novel Wolf Hall and its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies, in London last summer. The books and adaptations are about the rise of Thomas Cromwell, who rose from poverty […]

Tweet The title of this post refers to Mad Men and sandals, not Mad Men and the “gladiators in suits” populating Scandal. I admit that I have only seen one episode of Scandal, but I’ll have time to catch up now that MrB and I have gotten 72 episodes of Mad Men out of the […]

Tweet I usually feature my newest design as the Jewel of the Month, but for March, I was inspired to take another look at an old favorite. After struggling home through snow and sleet this evening, I was happy to throw myself into FitzRoy the cat’s favorite chair and watch a Buffy the Vampire Slayer […]

Tweet Actor Leonard Nimoy — best known for playing ultra-logical Vulcan Mr. Spock in the Star Trek television show and movies — died today of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at age 83. Nimoy was much more than Spock, of course. He was a Renaissance man who wrote books; directed television shows and movies; spoofed himself […]
