Ribeye in the pan

... with butter.

"Mad Men." Set in New York at a 60's advertising firm, writer/creator Matthew Weiner (The Sopranos) proves himself a master of "moody." The series is driven mostly by the crazy atmosphere he's created. The sets are as clouded with cigarette smoke as they are with rampant racism, sexism, and casual antisemitism and all well lubricated with alcohol. It's through this cloud that his complex (read "tragically neurotic") characters walk to and and fro, searching for wealth, sex and happiness at home and office.

Often funny but also often painful to watch, it is, nonetheless, fascinating.

- NPR interview with Matt Weiner
- Season One DVD (with extensive commentaries)
- Clips and behind the scenes featurettes on AMC.com

"Mad Men" returns for season two Sunday, July 29th.

Corbett's Fine Dining: Quickie Review

Ask for "table two" in the window seat as it affords the best vantage for people-watching, definitely get the rabbit ravioli.

If yer lucky, not only will you enjoy the food, a party of gangsters straight out of the cast of Sopranos will file in before your eyes, in outfits complete with purple jackets and fishnet tights. I'm not joking. It was a great night out.


Weekend Link Dump:

Inside "A Day In The Life" ~ Compare and contrast... Refusing to choose between them is a valid option and don't let anyone tell you otherwise ~ Andy McKee, guitar original ~ Slide Bone Guitar (Thanks to N8tastic) ~ Buddy Guy and some British dude do "Sweet Home Chicago" live ~ Inside "Gravity" I still don't know how I feel about John Mayer's music, but I like this song... and I like that he can laugh at himself, a rare personality trait among celebrities
