Song of the Day: Halt and Catch Fire Inspired Talk Talk “Talk Talk”

Today’s song is retro in a whole different way. No Sinatra, no Rosemary Clooney, in fact it isn’t even vintage in the same way. I have become obsessed with a new show on AMC, Halt and Catch Fire. It is basically Mad Men in the computer age. I think they even use the same office set as Mad Men’s season 1 for the Cardiff Electric Dallas office.

AMC paired up with Spotify (which I have been using at work to listen to everything) to develop 80s playlists for each of the main characters. I have been listening to these playlists almost every day now and I love them! Each character, from Lee Pace’s sex-driven, success powered mysterious Don Draper-esque leading man Joe MacMillan, to the underground young programmer Cameron Howe (played by Mackenzie Davis), and even the COMPUTER, Giant, gets his own playlist (the party playlist).

January Jones Is Winning The Celeb Instagram Game

January Jones Smiles while holding a coke on instagram

Actress January Jones has really found a way to connect with fans, Instagram. BusyBeeBlogger.com has been telling you for a while now that the Mad Men actress has serious Instagram skills and that if you want a irreverent look at a celebrity’s life her’s is the one to follow. (Check her out at @JanuaryJones and I’m at @busybeeblogger)

The normally quiet and private star who once said she needed to keep some things for her memoir later in life, shows her followers what just may be going on behind her Betty Francis-Draper facade.

Other celebs post opulent gifts, or over the top vacations, January Jones is riding a child’s scooter and showing off her mullet.  WIN!

This weekend, January completely won in the celebrity Instagram game not because she flashed what she bought from a shopping spree, or pictures from an expensive vacation, but because of this video:

Mad Men Mid-Season Finale Tonight On AMC

mad men mid-season finale 2014

After 7 seasons, tonight is the mid-season finale for Mad Men on AMC. Oh my. With a lack luster final season, Mad Men, Matt Weiner and AMC still decided to split it into two years a la Breaking Bad? What a shame.

While the clothing and the set designs are still going well, the momentum of the show is long gone (Season 3, 4, maybe after the 1st season?) It was leaked that they were told season 5 that it might be their last one, so it makes much more sense now how there has been a lack of flow for the past few years. Oh well, at least there’s only one half of a season left.

The best thing to come out of this year has been the interviews with the female cast. January Jones did the most jaw dropping naked photo spread for online magazine Violet Grey. She proves that this single mother is still hot.

And Christina Hendricks (aka Joan) wrote a letter to men in the pages of Esquire on what men should know about being with women. From what we like to see you wear, what we remember, and what to drink (scotch, just fyi). Oh and did I mention all the photos of Christina Hendricks in her lingerie?

So who is watching the mid-season finale with me tonight?  I know, I talk smack, I just want to see how it ends!

Mad Men Season 7 Cast Photos

The final season of retro-vintage-mega-hit Mad Men is finally upon us. AMC has released the Mad Men Season 7 cast photos and they show everyone in a new early 70s light. Oof, the fashion of the late 1960s and early 70s sure was… um… unique.

Don Draper (Jon Hamm) has not changed all too much, he is still slick hair and suits.

Betty Draper/Francis (January Jones) is still my favorite style Barbie. Her hair is amazing.

The only one that surprised me was Megan Draper and her world’s longest eyelashes. I know that was the style for a TV star, but oh emm gee.

Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) remains sweet but strong and Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks) bring her bright colors back. And it looks like Peggy will finally be flying on an airplane. (Previously in another season she told Don she had never ridden on a plane).

Everyone is on the go in these cast photos. I really wonder what this means for the final season.

Are you excited for the final season of Mad Men?
