    How to Look Like Don Draper

    FACT: looking like Don Draper ain't cheap.

    But Modern Primate has put together a list of Don Draper-ish items that you might actually be able to afford!

    We mean you can afford these things hopefully... maybe... possibly... and assuming you are employed and not in such extreme credit card debt that creditors have your cell number on their speed dial.

    $400 custom-made suits are a steal, yo!

    Not Great, Bob!

    Another year, another season of Mad Men gone.  It was a good season, one that found Don Draper spiraling out of control, the merging of two agencies, Kenny Cosgrove dancing, and, perhaps most importantly, the rise of Bob Benson and the tension he had with Pete Campbell


    Oh Bob, not only were you the manifestation of the season's themes of repetition and duality, you were also a source of high comedy, specifically the scene where you and Pete Campbell fought in an elevator, allowing Pete to give the instantly classic line, "Not great, Bob!"  


    So naturally, I have created a song to pay homage to that line.  Click HERE to listen to it and honor the greatness that is Bob Benson and, the ultimate gangsta, Pete Campbell.


    Until next season, sweet princes…until then.

    Remembering Sal

    Mad Men starts back up tonight after a WAY too long hiatus.  Everyone is excited.  No doubt there will be ironic Mad Men parties across the nation tonight and non-ironic whiskey hangovers tomorrow.  Our own Chris Menning at Modern Primate did an extensive video recap of everything he thinks you need to know about seasons 1-4.

    But I am not here to talk about what's about to happen.  I'm here to remember Salvatore "Sal" Romano, the closeted former Art Director at Sterling Cooper. 

    Sal's career was cut short by a homophobic culture and the ruthlessness of big business.  Sadly, though, that meant our OWN time with Sal was cut short on the show, after he was unceremoniously fired at the behest of the detestable Lee Garner, Jr.  And that was a damn shame, because he was one of the most complex and fascinating characters on the show.

    So when you raise a glass for Mad Med tonight, remember poor Salvatore.  His time at Sterling Cooper was far too short.

    Dumb Holiday of the Week: National Margarita Day

    Hey guys! You know what's a stupid fake holiday? National Margarita Day! How dumb is it to celebrate an alcoholic drink for only one day? "Extremely dumb" is the answer.

    Margaritas aren't even that good. Yeah, I said it, so what? If you want to have a good drink, maybe dedicate a day to a good drink like an Old Fashioned. That's a real drink right there, unless you're, like, eating Mexican food or whatever and then I guess Margaritas are alright, but who in their right mind would want to just sit around and drink a Margarita? Not me, that's who!

    Listen, I love alcohol just as much as the next person, I just think that tequila is disgusting and Margaritas are stupid. If anyone disagrees with me, well, you're wrong and you know where to reach me. @MrChrisDonahue

    Come at me bro (or broette)!

    TVGASM TUESDAY

    It's another TVgasm Tuesday! Did you know Zach Braff is back and at it again? What a rascal! He started (and then like four days and 2 million dollars later successfully ended) a Kickstarter campaign for his new movie "Wish I Was Here". The film is a follow up to "Garden State", and by that I mean I will fall asleep watching it. In much more exciting news the Mad Men writers are working on a new show centered around NASA in the 60's, and, if they follow the hundreds of suggestions I've sent in, centered around Joan Harris and Adam West as Batman.


    It's being reported that NBC has ordered what has been described (by me right now) as possibly the most terrifying gameshow concept ever called Million Second Quiz. I'll let you read the details yourself, but as I understand it, the show's premise is imprisoning people in a giant hourglass for 24 hours straight which is…..somehow legal. I've also heard that Fox has secured the rights to do a remake of "Guys and Dolls" so, aging gay men and my mom, rejoice! Let's see what TVgasm has


    This Week:


    Good news, no one! Martha Stewart is now on Match.com, so if doilies and veiled passive aggression is your thing, gird your loins because Martha Stewart is coming for you with a vengeance. 


    Do you remember Tara Reid? She had a deep smoky voice that some have described as "grossers" and "yucky", and she was in Van Wilder and American Pie 1-19 and probably some other stuff, but I refuse to wikipedia it on principle. Anyways, she recently played the "do you know who I am" card, and it didn't turn out so well. Click for the full story!


    Teen Mom Farrah has released a certain illicit tape. An illicit tape that is adult and illicit. (IT'S A NAKED TAPE. SHE RELEASED A NAKED TAPE). Click to get the all the illicit details. 


    Remember: If NBC tries to kidnap you during the night to be on the new gameshow, don't try to be a hero

    TVGASM TUESDAY

    Welcome to the latest TVgasm Tuesday! I think the first thing you need to know about is the hottest new twitter, belonging to the one and only Bill Clinton! There was a whole thing during an interview with Stephen Colbert, which you can see here, but the bottom line is, Hillary Clinton's husband will now hopefully be a regular tweeter. God bless us every one. A few more premiere dates were released, so we now know when Arrested Development's new season, as well as the revival of Whose Line will be premiering! Prepare accordingly by stockpiling toilet paper and scouting out new delivery places near your house, because we both know you aren't leaving your house for a couple days before and after these shows premiere. 


    In case you missed it, the new season of Mad Men premiered this week, and it was 90 minutes of sultry perfection that you should watch right now. In other news, who hasn't been a little bit accidentally racist?! Am I right, you guys?!?!?!?! No. Hopefully I am not right, but Brad Paisley has gone ahead and written a song about it. It is NOT going over well. 


    Let's see what TVgasm has this week:


    We've heard a lot, mostly from me probably, about Amanda Bynes recently (speaking of accidental racism *rim shot*) but let's get down to what's really going on with her. Is her vagina ok?! Has Drake murdered it yet?! Check out TVgasm for the full report.


    Well we all saw it coming, and yet were still blindsided by it. Oprah has finally teamed up with Tyler Perry to make a parody of The Color Purple. Maybe Brad Paisley is thrown in there for some extra spice? I don't know, just a suggestion, I'm not the director.


    The real Real Housewives (New York obviously) are recasting for their next season, and I'm getting nervous that my favorites won't come back! I swear if The Countess doesn't return I will….I don't know. Probably write a strongly worded letter. 


    Remember: Please please please don't be accidentally racist. Please.


    (also here's a little bonus)


    Tweet me about how Sally Draper is being SUCH a bitch in the new season of Mad Men @Sam_the_Stone

    An Interview with Dan Grgas

    Dan Grgas, thanks for sitting down with me today.

    No problem.

    You play the Mad Tagger in the newest episode of Status Kill. Where do you draw your inspiration from as an actor?

    I draw my inspiration from life, Chris. It could be anything. A bird, a tree, a song. As long as there is vibrancy and some sense of immediacy present in what surrounds me I feel I can channel it down into my being, change it, and then channel it back out into my craft.

    Do you yourself find irritation in being tagged in photos?

    Not really. I like when I get tagged in a picture. Sometimes they can be a bit unflattering, but even then it's usually the sign of a good or funny time I had with friends.

    What's it like working with filmmaker/friend Jesse Cowell?

    Jesse is a great guy and I'm lucky to consider him a friend, but I had never worked with him and I'm happy to say he was awesome on set. I hate when you're acting and you're sitting around with your thumb up your ass not doing anything because the director is dicking around. But Jess had everything worked out and it was a real fun, effective, easy shoot - for me at least.

    Please share with us your most embarrassing tagged photo and an explanation of why?

    A picture of me with my front two teeth cracked in half. Why? I had too much to drink.

    What's your favorite My Damn Channel series?

    Other than Status Kill, you mean? Ha ha ha ha!! I am very partial to Horrible People. It's such a well-written spoof, and it's unapologetic in how dumb and crazy the comedy is in it. To do such a killer send-up I think the comedy's got to tap into that part of your brain that doesn't need to think in order to laugh at it. To laugh straight from the gut. I love that stuff. Poop! Shit! Dick! LOL.

    How did you get so lucky to have a friend like Chris Donahue?

    Chris owns about three t-shirts and one of them is of a band we both happen to like. I said, "that band rules" and he said, "I agree" and then we started to talk about other stuff and next thing you know I have a good friend in Chippy Diesel.

    Thanks, Dan.

    F--k off, Chip.

    TVGASM TUESDAY

    Welcome to another TVgasm Tuesday (on Wednesday. It's my editor's fault. [ed. note: mea culpa!]). I'm gonna try to keep this short because we have a lot to talk about. I guess we should talk first about last Saturday's SNL. Justin Timberlake hosted for the fifth time, and, I don't want to oversell it, here, but it was the best thing to ever happen to the world. In less exciting news, you can now go on a cruise with Weezer. Yeah, I had to read it a few times too. I guess you just go on a cruise and Weezer is there and they play songs, and you pretend it's the mid-90's and talk about the Olsen twins and the musical RENT (those are 90's things right?). 


    Do you guys remember a few months ago when NBC was in talks to create a spin-off from The Office based on Dwight's beet farm? Yeah I wasn't too crazy about it, either, and NBC never actually made it... BUT, apparently this week's episode of The Office is supposed to introduce the entire Schrute family. I guess what I'm saying is, go read this article and then tweet me things about The Office this Thursday. Also, Mad Men's season 6 promo posters are out, and you can click here to have HuffPo overanalyze it for you!


    This week on TVgasm:


    Joan Rivers is well-known as the busiest woman in Hollywood (or wherever she lives. New York? A gas station?), and she's at it again with her new web series. Click here to get the details. 


    Did you guys hear about the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler/Taylor Swift triangle of animosity? No?! Check out TVgasm to get the details. Taylor Swift, why couldn't you have just written a song about this and saved us the trouble... trouble... trouble! You all have such rhymeable names!


    There's been a lot of drama surrounding ABC's The View recently, and ABC has finally  revealed that one of the ladies will be leaving? Which one? I couldn't tell you, but as long as it's not Whoopi, everything is fine. I can't start my day off without those Crocs.


    Remember: One day Joan Rivers will revert back to her natural form: a crocodile skin purse, and on that day I'll be standing here with a smile and an aggressive "I told you so"
