Hey Basketcases! We’re switching things up around here. After three years of writing Homeland recaps, Basketwriter Anne B. just can’t go on without Brody. Meanwhile, our Walking Dead recaps have suffered from some inconsistency, with three different regular writers (Arthur, Peg, and me) in just four seasons.

From here on out, Anne B. is in charge of the Brain Trust, taking over writing duties on The Walking Dead, while I’m stepping into her enormous (metaphorically) shoes for Homeland duties.

What the heck happened?

Jul 14, 2014

Business trip, of course. I’m all over the map. I didn’t even get to watch Masters of Sex yet. The problem with Sunday being Prestige Television Night is that I always travel on Sundays for arrival Monday morning. Rest assured, Masters of Sex will be blogged in this space, although not necessarily on time, because [...]

Restoration Progress

Jun 24, 2014

So, we’re making fantastic progress. Every “Basket of News” has been restored. For reasons that make no sense at all, none of the Fan Art was lost, even stuff posted after the last backup date. Crazy but true. I’ve found and restored an additional six posts, including the recaps for Waterloo and The Strategy. I’ve [...]

Revived & Reborn Basket of Kisses FUNDRAISER

Jun 23, 2014

Basketcases, let’s talk turkey. We’re writers. Deborah has some good computer knowledge, can do fancy things with HTML, can make MS Word sit up and bark like a dog. But we’re not techies. Fixing this website involved things like “php.ini” and “SQL” and other things we can’t say. We don’t make money from this gig. [...]

Fun Links

Apr 21, 2014

I’ve been dropping fun links into our Twitter feed and (simultaneously) into the Beamly.com Mad Men TV Room. This is stuff that I compile every week to drop into our reference pages (Cultural References and Music, primarily). Since I’m finding the links anyway, I thought they’d be fun to share. Hope you enjoy them!

Jon Hamm Birthday Week: Outdoor Sex

Jon Hamm Birthday Week: Outdoor Sex

Mar 13, 2014

Jon Hamm on outdoor sex:In the era of TMZ, I don’t think outdoor sex is a particularly good idea. It’s one of those things that sound way better than they actually are. There’s something not sexy about all the twigs and bugs and sand. You end up with stuff in places you don’t want it. [...]
