Brian Austin Green Is Actually Cool, Guys

No, seriously.

On having a more famous partner: “I know the normal male thing is the man works and is successful and brings home the paycheck. I don’t know who the hell set it up, but it’s what people expect. I just don’t care. I hated being famous during 90210. I’m not an extrovert. I’m 37. I have a beautiful wife. I have an amazing 8-year-old son. I love acting, but this is just my job. Fuck, next year I could book some crazy movie that blows up and things could shift completely. And I guarantee you at that point she’ll say, ‘Fuck, thank God. You go do all that shit now. I’m sick of it.'”

Why 90210 Deux is awful:90210 only worked because of that time period—because the world didn’t have access to a lifestyle like that. The Internet wasn’t what it is now. With TMZ and Paris Hilton wrecking cars and people being chased on freeways, there’s nothing interesting about Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills is nothing anymore.”

Too much knowledge is not power: “As someone who still loves movies and television, I honestly don’t want to know what Mel Gibson is like at home. I want to watch Braveheart. I don’t want any of the personal stuff. I’m not saying Mel’s choices are the best—obviously not—but it’s a shame that no one will enjoy a Mel Gibson film in the same way again. Mel made a business out of being nuts on camera, out of his fucking mind. And it’s like, what, do you expect him to be totally normal at home? It’s not possible…I think the most interesting people in television, film, and music are the ones we know the least about. I mean, Prince—it took years for me to know what his actual voice sounded like. Because I never saw him do an interview. I remember—I don’t know if it was Arsenio Hall that I saw him on—but the first thing he did was talk in this really high voice. And then he laughed and said, ‘No, I’m kidding.’ He’s got that deep voice! And we were like, ‘Prince got me!’ Because we had no idea.”

Historical Anachronism: Mad Men, and Kate’s Mom

Tags: , ,


While watching the latest episode of Mad Men entitled “The Summer Man,” my mom pointed out that when Don goes swimming in the New York Aquatic Club pool, he’s wearing swim trunks. When I reacted “…So?” She pointed out that it was actually appropriate for men to go nude in those days. Citing a NYT article from a few years back “The Tao of Skinny-Dipping“, she reminded me that the,
“…golden era of nude bathing ended in the 1980’s, when Mayor Edward I. Koch signed a bill banning discrimination against women at private clubs. For nude swimming it was the sack of Rome all over again. The New York Athletic and Yale clubs abandoned nude bathing for coed covered swimming; the Racquet and Tennis and University clubs, along with the Harmonie Club on East 60th Street, emerged as keepers of the naked flame.”

Upon further research, it seems that of the usual hoards of history dorks jumping all over any little mistake by Matthew Weiner and his team haven’t noticed (except for one commenter on the IMDB boards). I’m just happy there was some lap swimming, though if Don were really paying attention, he would know that his more-than-a-pack-a-day habit is the reason he’s panting all over the place. He also says to Faye, “I’ve been a little out of sorts lately, and its an effort to get in the water but when you do you’re weightless and you don’t even sweat and in the end you’re wrung out.” Don, you do sweat: You just don’t feel it. And that’s the magic of water.
