After the wild antics of last week, the most recent episode of Mad Men took a much darker turn when it dealt with the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Between the race riots, general fear and loss of hope, this installment was so depressing that by the end we were longing for the good old days of straight up aimless existential despair. Needless to say, most of the characters were too bummed out to engage in their usual sex, drugs and rock shenanigans, but we tried our best to bring you the best (or worst) from Don and the gang.

Having a starring role on a successful TV show can be a double-edged sword. While it’s great to be popular (and the steady work can’t hurt), many actors find it hard to escape the long shadow cast by their most famous role. Once the series ends, it can be a slippery slope towards type-casting, and then finally a permanent stay in a town called “Has-Been”.
Spring has finally sprung, and the shift into warm weather has an intense, almost physical effect on us all. No, it ain’t allergies; it’s spring fever, folks! The time of the year when we get our energy back, and feel more alive than ever. Love is in the air (along with pollen), and it’s hard to resist the urge to ask that special someone out on a date. So don’t resist! Sure dates can be kind of intimidating, but don’t worry: We’ve got you covered with this handy list of the 50 Greatest Date Movies of All Time. Read on and fear no more!
Nobody is above the law, not even the rich and famous! Even though we mostly just think of their cushy life style, a surprising number of stars have done time in the clink. And not just overnights from DUIs, either. We’re talking long stretches and serious sentences. Hard time, y’all!
We all say dumb things. But luckily for most of us, we don’t have reporters and television cameras documenting our every word. Because no one cares what we have to say. Sadly, celebs don’t have that luxury. It’s rough for them, but occasionally hilarious for us!
They say you never forget your first love, and that’s definitely true for us. We were 3 years old when we fell absolutely head over heals. She was pretty, she was bilingual, and she was animated. We don’t mean she was energetic: she was literally a cartoon. Yes, we were in love with Madeline, the little French orphan. Something in the way those minimal number of lines came together… man, it just did us in.
Jenelle Evans’ list of legal woes continues to grow as the Teen Mom 2 star faces yet another arrest. A double whammy of federal offenses could spell serious jail time for the troubled 21-year-old.
After a whole lotta teasin’, the wild late sixties finally happened on Mad Men! Last night’s episode was choc full o’ pot smoking, crazy colorful parties, free love, wife swapping, and, of course, Serge Gainsbourg. This got pretty hot and heavy, but luckily we were on hand to make sense of it all. Thank you for coming to this week’s edition of Mad Men‘s Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll Index. Hang on to your hats, folks: It’s about to get groovy.
Getting arrested probably isn’t anyone’s finest hour, so it’s not so surprising that most people look like complete crap in their booking photo. But why do famous people seem to look especially bad!? Maybe it’s the fact that we’re used to seeing them so glam that makes their awful mugshots particularly jarring. Or maybe it’s because a lot of times they’re hopped up on crazy expensive illicit drugs unavailable to us normals.
We’re used to seeing actors and actresses to try to save the world in movies, but there’s a rare breed of celeb who tries to do just that in real life! Many famous folks admirably try to use their noteriety and cash to bring about big environmentally conscious changes to the world (or at least set a good example). In honor of Earth Day, we’ve decided to take a look at 10 of these real world super heroes!
