Tonight I'll be watching SOME LIKE IT HOT.

Glorious Sounds of Retro! BOARDWALK EMPIRE Version

HBO's BOARDWALK EMPIRE is my new favorite show simply by virtue of its soundtrack. Is it possible that the show could bring a renewed interest in 1920s pop music and vaudeville? Imagine, a weekly dose of Sophie Tucker and Al Jolson and more. YES.

"Miss Blankenship, Queen of Perversions!"

My musings on this week's episode of MAD MEN are now up at Libertas!

I went a little beatnik poetical/personal reflection this time in my recap. This episode -- as everyone's been saying -- was beyond superb in every way (acting, script, direction, etc.), but for me it was more than a brilliantly produced hour of television. Something about this episode really hit me, touching me on a deep personal level that few television shows have ever reached. It was a masterpiece.

Please do read my thoughts on episode 7, "The Suitcase," at LFM!
