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 Showtime isn’t providing screeners, so if I can’t watch it live for any reason, well, you get the picture.

Hell on Wheels will be blogged in this space regardless, because AMC gives me preview love. Season premiere is August 2.

Restoration Progress

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

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. [...]

Jon Hamm on looking all manly:I came in the Dawson’s Creek era; it was all about tiny guys who looked like teenagers, and I haven’t looked like a teenager ever. So I was, like, auditioning to be their dads. At 25. Basketcases, as you light your Jon Hamm Birthday Week candles with your families tonight, [...]

I was looking at my original post about Mad Men Episode 6.04: To Have and to Hold, and found this: There’s also something in this episode about secrets getting out, which does not bode well for Don and Sylvia. Joan’s secret liaison with Herb Rennet is known to Harry. Ironically, Ken, who is so angry [...]

Jon Hamm on playing the period: I certainly don’t know that world either. Neither does Matt; it’s a different time. But again, it’s not required to have lived through any of this to be affected by it. I think that, again, alienation or dissatisfaction or wondering where your place is in the world or in [...]

And you know what that means…. Jon Hamm on why Basket of Kisses is awesomesauce: You know, it’s interesting, and we talked about this briefly when you visited, but I’ve been reading your site since its sort of foundation….and it’s really amazing that it is; sort of the depth that you guys go to and [...]
