WE’RE ON A BOAT!!!

Yes, this week, the designers find themselves aboard the S.S. Product Placement (though my wife is disappointed that none of them have the presence of mind to yell, “HOLY SHIP!”).

Project Runway: The Straight Guy Perspective (S14, Episode Two)

by Andrew Osborne

It’s time for the always entertaining, random-contestant-eliminating unconventional materials challenge…and the clue is “it’s important that you play your cards right.”  But don’t worry, Vampire Candice…you won’t have to play some card game, as you fear.  Instead, the contestants are all sent to a giant Hallmark store, which Swapnil finds VERY exciting (because, apparently, Swapnil really needs to get out more).

On May 19, 2015, The Boston Globe reported that the Cambridge, MA dive bar T.T. the Bear’s Place would be closing its doors for good on July 25th of the same year thanks to a steep rent hike coupled with the fact that the club’s 73-year-old owner Bonney Bouley had already been pondering retirement.

According to the article, T.T.’s general manager Kevin Patey was hoping a few of the local and national acts who’d performed at the venue over the years would return for some farewell gigs in the final days, adding: “Hey, if the Pixies wanna come back and play here, they’re more than welcome.”

Who Is The Female Hamm?

by Andrew Osborne

The following statement may not stand up to National Institute of Science standards of peer review, but I’m fairly certain it’s 100% accurate:  all ladies love Hamm.

Not Don Draper, the caddish crybaby of AMC’s stylish soap Mad Men, though the character’s sexy dark side (and suave ’60s style) rocketed the actor who played him into the erotic reveries of straight women (and gay men) everywhere from the moment he first strode the halls of Sterling Cooper back in 2007. Oh, sure, Draper may be wealthy and well-dressed, but he’s also a philandering alcoholic asshole, whereas his real-life counterpart is both rich and famous (with a healthy Hammaconda), as well as funny and faithful (more or less) to his long-time paramour…and, well, okay, sure, he’s also a recovering alcoholic and he allegedly set fire to a guy’s pants once back in college.
