Trailer’s out for the new series!
I wish I didn’t have a job and still smoked weed.
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!
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.
♥ My So-Called Life ♥
It’s no secret that Laura and I are addicted to True Blood. It’s cheesy, funny, dirty and takes no brain power what so ever to watch – perfect hangover TV.
I couldn’t help but notice in the latest episode (Se3 Ep4) the club where Bill goes to ‘procure’ some food, has GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS in red neon lighting on the wall. We’ve always joked about getting a sign and putting it up in the window of The Old Blue when we put on our GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS night. Not sure want kind of clientele that would bring though…
And while on the subject, I’m sure you’ve seen this hilarious homage to Sookie Stackhouse by Snoop Dogg but just incase you missed it, here it is in all it’s glory:
As DMD’s official geek, I feel it’s my duty to write an entry about LOST, which says goodbye forever tonight…. (Sky 1, 5am, I’ll be there).
Lost has been a part of my life over the last 6 years. And that’s quite a lot of time. I remember watching the pilot when it came out in the US and not feeling too interested about it. And then I remember suddenly falling in love with it half way through the first season. The characters (so memorable, so well written), the dialogues, the way it talked about society, the sci-fi vs religion bits, the continuos wtfs, the ability the writers had to create a whole new and strange universe that had so much sense in that island,… For me, Lost was the best TV series ever made after Twin Peaks. TV Magic. And now it’s gonna be over.
I quite liked it when it was announced that Lost would only last 6 series. These days it’s really easy to get series (and film franchises) extended forever unnecessarily just because of money reasons, and I didn’t want that to happen to something I liked so much. Something that was so special.
Surely Lost was never perfect. Some seasons were better than others. Some characters were better than others. Some situations were better than others. But it always had an authentic feeling about it, and was really good at surprising (the end of series 3 is one of the best things EVER to be done in TV history). However, I won’t deny that the current and last season has been extremely disappointing. In a way I feel that it’s got to a point where none of the things that happened before matter anymore (dear science, where are you?), and I don’t like that. One of the things that always fascinated me about Lost was how intelligent the writing was, and I haven’t felt that in series 6.
However, this is not stopping me from feeling so excited that I’m starting to think I won’t get any sleep tonight. After so many years… who wouldn’t want to know what happens in the end? So yeah, my alarm clock is programmed, and I have bought pop-corn and everything. And we’re only 7 hours away… and counting…
I work for the company that did the editing on it so, got a sneek preview and got to meet Mr Serafinawinavinawicz himself . I tried to look all nonchalant as I cracked open a bottle of coca cola for him, whilst inside my head I was like, “OMG it’s Darth Maul, should I tell him that I follow him on Twitter? Would that be weird?” Luckily he was swept away to his edit suite before I could embarrass myself.
Anyway I’m really curious to hear what everyone has to say about the video, so far it’s be a mixture of Woah’s, Huh’s and WTF’s.
Most of the time, Spain is pain. However, we do have the funniest TV program ever: Muchachada Nui.
Ok so I know, we’ve already had a post about True Blood ~ Laura was waaaaay ahead of everyone else. But whilst I was watching it the other night my boyfriend pointed out that two of the characters look really similar to two good friends of ours, Tony and Tristan. Check it out!
Woooooaaaah. The program has just become a whole new kind of awesome. Tony has started an new band called One Fathom Down, that I’m really excited about, and he’ll be DJing some Pscho Surf tunes for us at Bedtime Stories this Sunday at The Old Blue. We’ve decided to not only make it a book swap but also a clothes swap party. Mainly because I’m moving house soon and really need to get rid of my ridiculous wardrobe!
Come and join us!
