Musings about media, pop culture, and life. Not necessarily in that order.
“Properly approached, it’s a viable alternative for getting cheaply from point A to point B, even if those points are on opposite sides of the country.” Jim Courter offers some rules of thumb for hitchhikers.

“The CGC team is moving into SCDP’s offices, and everything is a mess. Boxes are stacked everywhere and people are stacked like boxes. Joanie’s just stacked.” Ken Honeywell has the latest Mad Men news.
“I went to college in the seventies, when a mildly insensitive comment by a male was often rewarded with verbal and physical abuse by gangs of marauding feminists.” Con Chapman has some gift-giving advice.
