If you are one of the 4 people who found GFMB while searching for a certain porn site which shall remain nameless, sorry to disappoint you. I don’t even know how you got here to be honest. I think I do have some turtle on turtle action if you scroll down though.

It’s not coming out until February 2010, but Universal has released the trailer for The Wolfman. It looks pretty good and scary but I’m not too sure about Benicio Del Toro. He definitely looks the part, but his acting in the clip seemed a little bland. Benecio is surrounded by a fantastic cast, including Hugo Weaving, who is amazing in just about everything he is in, so I remain hopeful. Click here to see a few images from the film and here to watch the clip over at Yahoo! Movies.
A preview for the next episode of Mad Men is up at AMC. Click here to watch.
I was let down by last week’s premiere. I didn’t like the jump forward and would’ve liked to have seen more of the London takeover, along with Roger and Joan’s weddings. The show also felt a little sitcomy to me when Sal and Don flirt with the stewardesses and pretended to be accountants for the mob. Pete Campbell seems to be overly dramatic this season, he was a jerk last season, but this season he’s throwing tantrums like a little kid. I also find it hard to believe that someone like him would be promoted as fast as he has.
Overall, I found it kinda dull, I will blame it on AMC making me wait so long. If this episode was several episodes in I wouldn’t be complaining, but this was the premiere for crying out loud. I have higher standards.
Lookout Snuggie, I just found the one thing that will be on everyone’s Christmas list this year:
It’s a sock! It’s a shoe! According to the seller, wear these and you will be FLOODED with compliments. Get that credit card out, you know you are already picturing yourself struttin’ down the street in these babies.
I waited a very long time for Mad Men’s return, and now that I’ve seen the season premiere I’m feeling a little disappointed. There just wasn’t a whole lot going on. Don is still a womanizer, Pete has the maturity of a 6 year old and Peggy still wears a perpetual frown on her face but with better makeup. I’m going to have to mull this one over and get back to you all tomorrow.
I debated buying the magazine. Could I handle the shame? The embarrassment? Would I see someone I know as I was buying it? I hesitantly put the magazine on the counter.
Cashier(looking at the magazine cover): “Whoa.”
Me: “Yea, I know. But I’m not buying it for the cover.”
Me: “I’m buying it for the Fall movie previews. Definitely not because of the cover.”
Cashier: “Robert Downey I could see on the cover, but not them.”
Me: “I’m going to just rip the cover off when I go home!”
Cashier: “Uh huh.”
I am not kidding you, I almost tossed The New Yorker in with my purchase to hide the EW. It was like buying 15 things you don’t need to hide the one condom box you were purchasing. I can’t wait for my subscription to start so I can avoid awkward conversations with bookstore employees over things like this:
Everyone ready for the weekend? Although, when you are unemployed like I am, everyday is a weekend right? Just with a lot less money. But who cares about the whole being broke thing when Mad Men is coming back! So grab your gimlet and check out a few goodies I grabbed from the interwebs today:
