Roger Sterling's Autobio to Be Published

Posted by Miss Ess, October 27, 2010 02:55pm | Post a Comment
All you ravenous Mad Men fans out there (myself included) will be delighted to learn that the autobiography Roger Sterling was working on this season on the show will be published for real (well, kinda for real) next month! While this autobiography, entitled Sterling's Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Adman, isn't guaranteed to give us the juicy details the one on the show did, it will no doubt be entertaining, as it is filled with the bons mots Roger is so famous for, such as "Remember, when God closes a door, he opens a dress." Truly stuff to live by! Find out more here.

Johnny Cash is one of music's most celebrated bad-asses. His family will be putting some of the iconic artist's belongings up for auction in December and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity.

Check out the jumpsuit Cash wore in rehearsals for his famous San Quentin performance...the man in blue!

Here's a sweet note he wrote:

And a pair of his famous boots:

While we're talking about him, the Johnny Cash Show is one of Cash's lasting legacies. I nabbed a few videos of him duetting with folks on the show:

When the Levees Broke

I just had the opportunity to watch Spike Lee's documentary When the Levees Broke, about Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, and I feel like it should be required viewing of all Americans. Lee leaves no stone unturned and the film is enlightening, disturbing and incendiary. I can't recommend it enough.

Remember John Lennon

Posted by Miss Ess, October 9, 2010 01:45pm | Post a Comment
I think everyone who loves music is probably thinking about John Lennon today, on what would have been his 70th birthday. Though his life was tragically short, I think it's safe to say he will never be forgotten. His songs, thoughts, concepts, will continue to inspire people on and on....

It's impossible to choose a favorite track. Each of Lennon's best songs, especially over time as his career wore on in the Beatles and beyond, presents a different mood, a tiny world, a personal statement. And I think the thing that endears John to us is his brutal honesty and genuine, plain emotion coupled with the fact that he was clearly and continually grappling with the world and his place in it, just like all of us. That he was taken so tragically and unnecessarily is beyond heartbreaking.
