Sexy.

Lookout Snuggie, I just found the one thing that will be on everyone’s Christmas list this year:

ugly shoe

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.

Did it deliver?

mad-men

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 buy it for the articles.

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.”

Cashier: “Wow.”

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:

Finally!

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:

EOnline! has two short previews of this Sunday’s True Blood. I hope someon beats the snot out of Maryann.

Via Comic Book Resources, artist Andy Swist has created True Blood Paperdolls. Click here to print out the PDF and get cuttin’!

Check out the new Vanity Fair photos of Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and January Jones, shot by Annie Leibovitz.  The beautiful photos and in depth article written by Bruce Handy, can be found in the September issue.

USA Today discusses the style and culture of Mad Men as it relates to today.

Five questions with Eureka’s Colin Ferguson. A new episode is on tonight at 8pm on SyFy(I hate that name).

SciFi Wire reviews a couple of new movie releases, District 9 and The Time Traveler’s Wife.

That’s it for now. Happy Friday all.

Meh.

With all the rain and the whole being unemployed thing, I am feeling a little blah today. Thankfully I have Jezebel, a wonderous place from which hilarious and disturbing clips like this come from. A warning, do not click if you are offended by Turtle Porn.

One of the best parts of posts on Jezebel, are the comments people leave. My favorite being this one:

I’d venture to say that the first few seconds of that clip, where the male is headbutting the stone in an attempt to mount the female, made many of us watching think “Yeah. I’ve been there.”

My day is sunnier already.

My Three Day Late True Blood rant.

Holy crap! That was some True Blood episode, with the Bloody Heart Pie Eating and wacko Fellowship of the Sun followers, I don’t know what part I loved the best. It was nice to see Nathan Stark back in action and with a southern accent. He was killing me with the cowboy hat and all black ensemble. Since Alan Ball has veered so completely away from Charlaine Harris’ books, it’s going to be interesting to see who survived last Sunday’s ending.

I should really stop watching the show right before bedtime, I woke up at 4:00am arguing with Alan Ball in my head. Why wouldn’t Sookie hear the thoughts of the Fellowship member the minute he walked into Godric’s nest? Why would he even know where Godric’s nest was since Bill himself said a vampire’s most personal secret was where he sleeps. Also, can we wrap up the whole Tara/Eggs/Maryann storyline soon? It started out well, but now seems to be dragging along. I get it, Maryann is evil, everyone has weird sex when Maryann makes their eyes go black. Got it.

Rant complete.

Quote of the Day: “Twitter blackout left users feeling ‘jittery,’ ‘naked'”

twitter

Look people, I know you all love your Twitter, but geez, get a grip:

“You know how you pat your pockets for your cell phone and your keys? Well it’s that same kind of phantom [limb] with Twitter,” she said. “It’s like, ‘I can’t update! I can’t update!’ It’s just one of those bugs that gets in you.”

She added: “I was pretty upset, actually. It feels like a lifeline for me … Pretty much everyone knows almost every detail of my life by what I’m doing on Twitter.”

If I ever get that bad, I am checking myself into Social Networking Rehab or something. Read the rest of the article over at CNN.com.

Preview of Sunday’s True Blood.

Who’s ready for hell to break loose on True Blood? Hope The Fellowship gets a good beat down. Here are a few links to hold you until Sunday night:

EW has a preview of Sunday’s show. Click here to watch.

Get an early peek at Queen Sophie Ann, played by Evan Rachel Wood. Click here for a larger image.

NY Mag lists their top 5 gripes about True Blood. I happen to think some of those gripes are why I love True Blood. Yes the special effects aren’t top notch, and yes the accents are over done, that’s part of the appeal for me. It’s campy, cheesy, over the top fun and I enjoy every second of it.

Fearnet.com has an interview with Carrie Preston, who plays waitress Arlene, who is very unfortunate in the love department. Did you know she is married to Michael Emerson from Lost?

Now go out and enjoy your weekend.
