Zou Bisou Bis...aagghh! Make It Stop!

Posted by Kells, March 31, 2012 01:38pm | Post a Comment


Hey you! Tortured much by that little Gillian Hills ditty "Zou Bisou Bisou" sung by Megan Draper (Jessica Pare) in the Mad Men premier last week? Never fear mes amis, exorcise that demon by purchasing the super slick 45 rpm 7" vinyl single of "Zou Bisou Bisou" (sung by Miss Pare herself as heard in the show) with the RJD2 Mad Men theme on the b-side. What really floats my boat is the fact that one may spin this sweet baby at 33 & 1/3 speed to hear the super spooky "alternative" versions of these modern pop sensations. I have a feeling the theme's electro beat will translate oh so deliciously when played at the slower speed. In other words: get your goth night on cats and kittens! See the song and scene below!

My Best of 2010

Posted by Miss Ess, December 22, 2010 12:13pm | Post a Comment
Time for outside-work fun and general pop culture absorption was extra low this year, but what I loved in 2010, I loved hard. These are the things that made my heart sing over the past twelve months.

Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me



Is there any point in writing about any other album than Joanna's? This triple album is clearly the work of the bright star of young music makers today. The difference between her and everyone else on the playing field? Nothing about her work is derivative: not her sound, not her writing and certainly not her voice. Album of the year, for sure...probably would even call it album of the past few years! It's that good.

"Soft As Chalk"



Mountain Man - Made the Harbor



Old timey yet thoroughly modern.




Carletta Sue Kay



She may not have an official full-length yet, but Miss Carletta is poised to blow up in 2011, guaranteed! She's not like everybody else.




Mad Men Season 4



This show never ceases to amaze me. Every season I think it's gone off the rails and every season it's reined with utter perfection and masterful writing. If you are not watching this show and licking up every last detail of it, you don't get IT.


True Blood



I don't typically care for vampires or fantasy genre-type plot lines so I avoided this show for the past two seasons. After friends pleaded with me to give it a chance, and thanks to free HBO on Demand, I finally caught on and watched all three seasons in just a few months.

I am busy at work on my top 50 albums of the year! I will most likely be posting those on the blog next week but I decided to go ahead and post my other best of lists of the year now. We still have a couple of weeks left in the year so the movies list will most likely change, as I plan on seeing about 10 more movies before the year is over so my top ten movies of the year will also be posted in the next couple of weeks. What I have for you today is my top dvds and blu-rays for the year, my top TV shows & video games, my favorite 7"s and soundtracks....It has been a really great year!

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.
