“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” — Jon Hamm
“When a man walks into a room, he brings his whole life with him. He has a million reasons for being anywhere, just ask him. If you listen, he’ll tell you how he got there. How he forgot where he was going, and that he woke up. If you listen, he’ll tell you about the time he thought he was an angel or dreamt of being perfect. And then he’ll smile with wisdom, content that he realized the world isn’t perfect. We’re flawed, because we want so much more. We’re ruined, because we get these things, and wish for what we had.” — Don Drapper - Mad Men
WHAT’S IN STORE FOR #MADMEN SEASON 5? HOW NYC CHANGED & ADOPTED THE NEW ATTITUDE OF THE 60S.
“Time marches on and Weiner hints of its impact on the show’s themes. He speaks of ’60s New York in the progress of decay, of a growing culture clash and generation gap, and a festering insecurity surrounding social/economical/technological change. ‘There wasn’t a lot of history in the show last year. 1964 to 1965 was a relatively calm period, compared to ‘63 or ‘61,’ he says. ‘As we get deeper into the period, things are going to become more and more unstable, and how that affects Don and the business is something we can’t hide from anymore.’” — Entertainment Weekly on Mad Men season 5
