“Masters of Sex” on Showtime

The “Mad Men” treatment is apparently a thing now, because pioneering sex researchers Masters and Johnson get it in Showtime’s new period drama “Masters of Sex.” The show, created and written by Michelle Ashford (“The Pacific,” “John Adams”), takes Thomas Maier’s biography Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson and shellacs it in a thick veneer of mid-century modern style and sophistication.

Don Draper wants you to help me find a couch.

Interior Design

Mid-Century Couch Wanted

I have my own office at the Alibi, and in exchange for this luxury I promised to fix the room up to look like a mid-century cocktail lounge where the writers could play Mad Men. Months later I’ve yet to decorate or furnish it, and sitting options include two silly exercise balls. Now I’m getting serious about fulfilling my promise. So, the question is: Where do you buy your furniture in Albuquerque? Any hot tips on ‘60s couches?

And Then This Happened ...

Yes, those are real “Mad Men” Barbies. I’m speechless. Actually, come to think of it, it kinda makes sense. Christina Hendricks’ boobs are almost the right proportions, even. They’re limited to 10,000 each and will run you $75 apiece. Tiny plastic martinis are not included. You can buy them at AMCTV.com or through BarbieCollector.com. Read the press release here.

What Would You Look Like in 1962?

“Mad Men” is coming back on August 16. It’s a really, really great show about advertising in the ‘60s. And sexism, racism, classism. With fabulous clothes. AMC is spreading the word through a variety of 21st century ways, like allowing you to make your own “Mad Men”-style avatar. Here is me. This is actually quite an accurate depiction of how I conduct meetings/teach class. Go here to make your own. Share them, won’t you?
