Mad Men, Season 2

With The Sopranos over, House on summer vacation, and nothing else new being churned out by HBO this summer - my DVR has had some serious gaps to fill.

Last weekend, AMC ran a marathon of the entire first season of their much acclaimed drama, Mad Men, and I decided I'd dip my toe in the water. I realize I'm a bit late to this party - but I figured it's not too late.

Living up to the hype, it's definitely one of those dramas that you get lost in. The show is set in a 1960's advertising firm on Madison Avenue (hence, Mad Men). It follows the womanizing, boozing, chauvinist office-dynamics of a non-PC America in the booming years following WWII. Mostly, I just love the suits these guys wear. I'm not sure if I can pull off the skinny tie look - but I'll be damned if I'm not going to give it a try this week.

Season 2 debuted tonight (Sunday) - and I think it's worth checking out - if you're not already a loyal fan. My guess is that if you set your DVR to just record every episode, you'll probably catch up on season 1 pretty quickly with the repeats they show.

If you don't have a DVR yet - then it's almost like you're living in the 60's anyway, so this show is all the more perfect for you.

What You Get For the Money

For the past 2 weeks I have been telling anyone who would listen that they need to support Anhesier-Busch, as they fended off a hostile takeover bid by Belgian Beer-Conglomerate 'InBev' - who was attempting to buy out our last major American beer producer. You may not know it, but Miller is owned by a South African company, and Coors is owned by a Canadian company.

Budweiser put up a good fight, but in the end they squeezed an extra $5 Billion out of those wood clog wearing, windmill making dancing-nancies - and now our National Pastime of Beer is owned by Europe.

Well, here's what they're getting for their $52 Billion - I present the top 5 'Real Men of Genius' songs:

Mr. Foot Long Hot Dog Inventor

Mr. Grocery Store Cart Wrangle

Mr. Silent Killer Gas Passer

Mr. Nudist Colony Activity Coordinator

Mr. Really Really Really Bad Dancer

Hey Belgium - go choke on a waffle.

America, F*** Yeah!

The US has been awesome for 232 years now, and so today all of us bad ass motherfuckin' Americans will celebrate by putting our hot chicks in bikinis and shooting fireworks at each other. Also, my condolences if you're not American. I read in the bible that if God didn’t make you American, it’s because he hates you, so you’re kind of screwed.

Also, big ups to Joey Chestnut for defending his Nathan's Hot Dog eating Title. USA! USA! USA!

I kinda want to go blow something up, and then oppress someone. Maybe a field trip to Guantanamo Bay would hit the spot.
