For some reason we don’t understand why Freaks and Geeks never made it to Spanish and South African TV… So we’re all know catching up with one of the most fun teenage series we’ve ever seen (it’s never too late).
They use Joan Jett’s ‘Bad Reputation‘ for the opening credits, we can see a very young Jason Schwartzman dressed up in the latest 70s disco fashion and the clothes are awesome (I’m already looking for a pair of flared jeans).
Jordan Catalano? He’s still in our hearts, but Daniel Desario has totally taken a big part of them.
The story of an advertising agency set in the New York of the late 50s doesn’t sound like the most exciting or accessible plot for the masses but even so, it has managed to become a cult series.
The extremely accurate representation of the time through little big details like the set design and the styling, has made Mad Men a heaven for designers and collectors, with its own collector dolls (my birthday is in June, just so you know…), auctions selling the furniture and clothes featured on the series and countless blogs analysing every single detail on it.
Since I got into Mad Men a while ago, I’ve been talking about it to everyone: “it starts slow, it’s very subtle, but give it a few episodes and you’ll see!”. Nothing seems to happen but everything is happening without words. Everyone tries so hard to fit and be politically correct (or at least what that meant in the 50s…) while everyone betrays eachother behind their backs… The real hook of Mad Men is being an analysis of a crucial period in modern history, and a perfect dissection of the stereotypes through perfect crafted characters. And at the same time, the fact that those stereotypes are not far from our days makes each of us feel close, related or attracted to them. So yeah, even though we hate to admit it, we all love Don Draper… So please bring him back soon!
A few weeks ago, we found out that DMD favourites Jeff the Brotherhood had signed with London based label Stolen Recordings to release their album Heavy Days in the UK, and that they were gonna come on tour. Woo!

So Belle moved into this really neat house with a huge sofa and a projector.
Now, all we want to do is watch stuff.
We saw Mean Girls last weekend and tonight we’ll be painting our nails, getting drunk, stealing fashion tips from Angela Chase, drooling over Jordan Catalano and trying not to think about 30 Seconds from Mars.
