Omar’s back! Omar’s back!

Ok, so not quite. He is however part of the cast of Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese’s new show for HBO which just got picked up for 12 episodes. The show will air in 2010 along with David Simon’s Treme, which features several former cast members from The Wire.

Here are a few links that may interest you…or not:

Mad Men was picked up for a fourth season. I thought last week’s show was pretty good. I loved the look Joan gave Dr. Jackass while she played the accordian. Seems like the power may have shifted in that dysfunctional relationship over the season break.

Jezebel has the 12 Steps to Save American Apparel from Itself.

Also via Jezebel, Whitney Houston’s performance on GMA. It was ummm interesting.

Tripwire Magazine has 45+ Free Exceptionally Useful Handwritten Fonts and 60+ Free Fonts for Big, Bold and Beautiful Headlines.

…and finally,don’t miss the re-aired pilot episode from the new series, Glee, tonight at 8:58pm on FOX. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s the anti-High School Musical. It’s got Jane Lynch and the best version of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Beliving” I’ve ever heard. What’s not to love!?!

Bitch reviews Mad Men.

Nice blog title huh? Check out this review over at Bitch Magazine of Mad Men’s season premiere. It sums up perfectly how I felt about the episode but lack the skill to put down coherently.

Also, some jerk stole the sign from Bitch’s storefront. If you happen to see it, email the staff at kelsey@b-word.org.

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:
