Mad Men opening sequence quotes Robert Longo

What I love about curating:

When new fascinations recall previous ones, and there is that “That makes me think about…” moment.

I think Mad Men is unabashedly brilliant. Mesmerizingly, keep-me-in-the-moment so. (My yogi me would say when that happens, it is Kundalini.) In the mid-80s, I had the same reaction to artist Robert Longo’s Men in the Cities series. Enough so that one Halloween, I dressed as one of the characters. (Hey, I was 30 and full of myself in the good way. Actually, being full of oneself is living right, not a social misdemeanor.)

Curating fills me with myself, with my soul’s way of connecting delights to delights, and sharing that with others….”Hey, look at this!”

  1. If you like Mad Men try Peep Show (Channel 4 series) – I can’t imagine what they have in common other than exceptional quality but I love them both.

  2. I agree… very well written, directed and filmed. Thanks for introducing me to it.
