Alexander McQueen Makes a Move on London’s Old Bond Street

MCQUEEN’S MOVE: Alexander McQueen plans to relocate its London flagship store to 27 Old Bond Street, currently home to DKNY, WWD has learned.
The new, 10,800-square-foot retail space is due to open in 2018, and will be the first to reflect the brand’s new interiors concept. The store spans three floors and has a double height, glazed frontage.

The women’s wear store at 4-5 Old Bond Street re-opened in 2013 and was also designed by David Collins Studio. It is set over two floors and 2,690 square feet.

Ludacris’ “Move B*tch” Used As Protest Chant By Anti-Trump Demonstrators

Hip-Hop’s influence continues to show throughout the country’s most critical social and political moments. Ludacris‘ rowdy 2001 hit “Move B*tch” was recently used as a protest chant against Donald Trump.

Close to 2,000 people marched from Downtown Atlanta to the gravesite of Martin Luther King Jr. to protest the recent racist brutality in Charlottesville, VA.

The peaceful rally drew individuals of all backgrounds looking to voice their stance against hate. During a portion of the walk, President Donald Trump became the clear target as protesters incorporated his name to the theme of “Move B*tch.”

“Move Trump, get out the way, get out the way” became the chant of the crowd over the booming instrumental. This moment caught the attention of Luda himself who later shared footage of the rally on his Instagram saying “#MoveTrump ✊🏾”.

Exclusive: Ralph Lauren’s Major Move for New York Fashion Week

Ralph Lauren is capable of doing big things. In the lead-up to a New York Fashion Week season that has been fraught with controversial defections of major talent, Lauren, a true blue American designer if there ever was one, is staying put (relatively) and stepping it up. He will stage his September runway show Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at Ralph’s Garage in Bedford, N.Y., with a private formal dinner to follow the show.
The venue is Lauren’s private garage housing his collection of rare automobiles, which will be the backdrop for the show. It’s one of the most valuable car collections in the world, featuring models such as a 1938 Bugatti Atlantic, a 1929 Bentley Blower, an orange 1996 McLaren F1 LM and multiple vintage red Ferraris. In 2011, 17 cars from Lauren’s collection were shown in an exhibition at the Musée Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
To accent the masculine/feminine nature of automobile design, for the first time Lauren will also show the Ralph Lauren Purple Label men’s wear alongside the women’s collection. The show will continue the see-now-buy-now strategy that the company started a year prior — all looks from the show will be available immediately to consumers globally.

Urban Outfitters’ Call For Free Labor Is Just Its Latest Shameful Move

No, Urban Outfitters. Just no.

The retailer’s parent company, URBN, which also oversees Anthropologie and Free People, asked some of its salaried employees to volunteer at a fulfillment center in Pennsylvania in anticipation of a busy month, Gawker reported earlier this week. What this means is that employees at the URBN home office were being asked to work for free in order to help make sure customers got their orders speedily.

Reached for comment from The Huffington Post, the company said that employees were enthusiastic about the request:

[W]e received a tremendous response, including many of our senior management. Many hourly employees also offered to pitch in — an offer which we appreciated, but declined in order to ensure full compliance with all applicable labor laws and regulations. The dedication and commitment of URBN employees are second to none, and their response to this request is a testament to their solidarity and continued success.

Urban had been making some progress on labor practices. The retailer announced Wednesday that it would end on-call scheduling in its New York stores. But clearly it still has work to do. 

The the chain doesn’t have the cleanest record when it comes to cultural or political sensitivity, either. Here’s a reminder of some other controversies Urban Outfitters has stirred in years past:

Supporting anti-gay agendas

CEO and founder Richard Hayne has donated $ 14,000 over the years to presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, who has been vocal in his opposition to gay marriage. In 2008, Urban Outfitters quickly discontinued a T-shirt that had the slogan “I support same-sex marriage.”

Appropriating Native American culture

After releasing Navajo-themed clothes and accessories in 2011, Urban Outfitters was slapped by a lawsuit from the Navajo Nation for using its name on products. 

Commercializing the death of students

Someone at the the company actually thought it was a good idea to make sweatshirts emblazoned with “Kent State” along with some bloody-looking stains. Four students were killed and many others wounded in a shooting at that Ohio university in 1970. The retailer received immediate backlash and pulled the item from its site, claiming the stains were the result of discoloration and “natural wear and fray.”

Ripping off artists

Urban Outfitters has a long history of stealing other people’s designs. It’s lifted freely from jewelry sellers on Etsy and artists who are trying to sell their work online.

Sports News: Giants Move Tom Coughlin To Assisted-Coaching Facility

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Saying that they held off taking such a drastic step for as long as they could, officials from the New York Giants confirmed Wednesday that the team had made the difficult decision to move head coach Tom Coughlin into an assisted-coaching facility. “We know Tom likes his independence, but ultimately we had no choice—at least this way he won’t have to completely stop what he loves doing while still getting the proper supervision and attention he needs,” said offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, adding that he was hopeful the 69-year-old Coughlin would grow to appreciate the center’s many amenities, including trained staff on-site 24 hours per day ready to help residents read playbooks, review game film, and manage the clock during the fourth quarter. “We all knew this day would eventually come, and even though he was definitely a little hesitant about it, we think …

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Move Back in With Mom Kris Jenner

YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE HOME: What empty nest? Even though Kris Jenner’s youngest daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner have flown the proverbial nest, she’s not alone. Kim Kardashian told WWD last week that she, Kanye West and their daughter North have moved back into mom’s Calabasas, Calif., pad while their new home undergoes renovations.
“My mom is thrilled,” said Kardashian, “and my husband has been a good sport about it.” Kardashian said she’s coming into the home stretch of the renovation, with “big decisions” about bathroom fixtures and tile still to make. The temporary setup also has her running upstairs in the middle of the night if North wakes up.
“She’s usually a good sleeper but the other night she woke up and wanted me to put her hair in a ponytail,” Kardashian said. Oh, those kids.
It’s OK though, because Kardashian hasn’t been feeling as motivated for her daily workouts as she was when she was carrying baby number one. “I keep pretty active but lately I’m just tired.”
Her new house will have plenty of room for the growing family (and a gym), but as for her one-bedroom apartment in New York, where the family stayed this week during New York Fashion

Move Over, Mom Jeans: Jay Z and Lenny Kravitz Show How to Wear Dad Denim

jay z street style

While the mom jean got a bit of a refresh recently from bold A-listers like Angelina Jolie Pitt, Beyoncé, and Victoria Beckham, fashionable fathers are now getting in on the game. Earlier today, two major musicians took to the streets of New York, demonstrating how dads can still reign cool in denim. Jay Z and Lenny Kravitz opted for slightly differing hues of blue—Kravitz’s has a gray tint—but each managed to make his outfit as singular as his distinctive sound.

Mr. Carter kept things simple in a T-shirt and jeans combo that focused on fit and palette. His tailored top curves just below the waistband to create a longer silhouette, while tan Timbs augment the faded quality of his ensemble. Meanwhile, Kravitz, no stranger to making any sidewalk his own personal runway whether in skinny ensembles from Saint Laurent or Tom Ford for Gucci, went for a similar look with a touch more flair. Kravitz’s striped shirt coordinates with his gray-tinged jeans, but it’s the accessories that liven up things. A weathered tan belt pairs perfectly with sandy, suede Chelsea boots for a modernized take on styles favored by David Bowie and Mick Jagger. Dadbods everywhere, take note: The dad jean has officially arrived.

Silver-Gray Hair Trending Strong, Makes Move From Red Carpet to Streets

The new silver-gray is trending strong this summer and we’re seeing it beautifully accented with vivid colors like green, purple, pink … you name it!

Just when we think we’ve seen it all, we haven’t. We’re coloring our hair gray, and it works! And while most of this has been on the red carpets these colors are moving fast to the streets.

Beware, though, this is a hair color that is extremely difficult to achieve. What we want is a soft, shimmering silver with subtle variations. Try this at home at you may end up with something that looks more like ‘old-age’ gray or Halloween alien gray. So leave the box on the drug store shelf and head for your trusted stylist.

Then have fun. You’re in good company. “Once Upon a Time” star Ginnifer Goodwin just showed up for an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con in a short pixie with silver hair in the softest most subtle shade of lavender. So beautiful, and that subtlety in the lavender is part of what’s so hard to get. Lady Gaga wore her hair in a silver blend at the Academy Awards in February. She usually does ‘outrageous’ but this style had a beautiful, understated look.

Of course, this isn’t about looking ‘old.’ It doesn’t look old at all. Think about Zosia Mamet of “Mad Men.” She went with a soft silvery gray … with natural brown roots! This is the opposite, literally, of what it means to have gray roots.

It seems this style has been emerging but has finally hit the streets this spring and strongly this summer.

The look lends itself to many variations, and may even be a momentary path of salvation for the ombre, which had dissolved almost to extinction in the last year. With this silver-gray trend, while we’re seeing some very soft, subtle blends with some of the vivid colors, we’re also finding more distinct and striking gradations, like the ones that defined the ombre before that style faded. We’ll see.

Holding ground are the natural colors with very soft, subtle color transitions with natural waves. The bobs are very popular, and this versatile cut works extremely well with these silver-gray blends. I still expect those natural colors to dominate the styles but it is so great to see something really different take hold … it’s been a while!

That’s as good a reason as any to jump on this color style while it’s here. It is so attractive, and distinct but not at all outrageous. As fast as this silvery trend emerged, another may be close by waiting, so ride the wave while it’s strong, because a new one is probably right around the corner.

As always, be open to change!

How Hiking Helped Me Move Past The Pain Of Divorce

If there’s ever a time you need a little distraction in your life, it’s during the divorce process. That’s why we launched our Divorce Care Package series. With each post, we’ll show you what things — books, movies, recipes — helped others relieve stress in the midst of divorce, in the hopes that a few of their picks will serve you well too. Want to share what got you through your divorce? Email us at divorce@huffingtonpost.com or tweet @HuffPost Divorce

When her marriage ended in divorce after 10 years, Carol Schaffer wasn’t eager for a fresh start. Still shaken up by the split, Schaffer said she held tight to the people and pastimes she loved and only introduced new things into her life (hiking, “Seinfeld” binge-fests) if they helped her heal in some way.

“You can’t change everything about your life right away after a separation,” Schaffer, who lives in California, recently told The Huffington Post. “Some people are tempted to make all kinds of changes to themselves and their lives right away, but I took the most comfort in the things that stayed the same like cooking big dinners and having sit-down meals with my kids.”

Below, Schaffer shares five things (some tried-and-true, some new) that made life a little more bearable during her divorce.

Do the Men Move on First Before the Women, After Divorce?

Every time I have told someone about the divorce, all I hear is, “He will move on before you. The men always do.” Or, “Oh the men need someone so he’ll marry again before you do.” Or, “Well you know…men get over these things quickly. The women stay alone.”

I felt rattled by these words because based on every stranger, coworker and friend, women suffer through loneliness and men find happiness instantaneously. It was the fiftieth time in my life that I wished for a penis.

‘Why is this?” I asked, angry at my supposed lot–the lot of the lonely woman.

And it wasn’t just the lot of the lonely woman I had just received but the lot of amicable divorce turned sad, according to random psychics, I mean, strangers, coworkers, and friends.

“Wait til he finds a girlfriend. Oh that will be so hard on you.”

Doomed. Doomed before we even stand in front of a judge and agree to be divorced.

I said no way. I said I would be OK. I could handle a girlfriend–least from a decent distance. There was no way I could crumble. I had this.

Of course, then I heard about him dating.

The words. When I knew, I felt as if someone had put a shotgun to my gut. That night I cried for most of the night. In fact, I am pretty sure I have just been random waterworks as if I were a pregnant lady ever since. If you aren’t sure if it’s me, see if the woman is crying. If yes, chances are it’s me.

Everyone was right. He moved on first–I mean, I guess in terms of dating, more successfully. I have not dated successfully. It’s not because I don’t want to, but mostly because I hate online dating and let’s face it: as a single mom in her late thirties with all married friends and who works all the time, when am I going to meet anyone else otherwise? And the few men I have lightly interacted with were not people that were on my same playing field. All in all, it’s been a barren period. But in all actuality, who knows if this person he is dating will be my daughter’s next step mother. I don’t know. I am not psychic and no, I’m not asking random strangers for their “psychic input” either. The men move on first they said. The men find women. You will be sad. You will be angry.

“Oh the women always have a tough time. It’s so hard. They focus on the kids. Men don’t want women with kids. Women don’t mind a man with kids.”

So basically, it sucks to be a woman and have a vagina, yet again.

I don’t know if all men move on before women in the case of divorce. It seems so simplistic and stereotypical to make these generalized statements. I am sure there are men who mourn over divorce and take their time to move on. Yet damnit, when I look around more often than not, the men have suffered for a bit and then moved on without so much a trace of sweat on their brows. Perhaps it’s society and we tell men they can’t grieve. Perhaps they’re grieving but not allowed to show this. Perhaps it’s just my corner of the world that’s just full of men creating new wives, new girlfriends, and new lives. I wanted so much for that not to be true. I wanted us to move on together or selfishly, at least me first.

And is it not moving on if you’re single? Even though I am living my life, making goals and having wishes and dreams, do I not qualify as moving on because I am still very much single?

That doesn’t seem right. A girlfriend or boyfriend shouldn’t be proof of “moving on” yet it sort of is.

No one prepared me for how bad I would feel. Whenever I think of anything even a year later, it seems somewhat attached to a memory that he was a part of. I’ve had my own friends, my own place, my own hobbies, and my own routines and months of satisfied single non-dating life, yet like a spirit, he hovers over me each day in the movements of my child, her face, songs on the radio, foods, and more. Seasons, smells, sights and sounds all conjure up him. It’s not that I wouldn’t be delighted to meet someone but that no one worth my time has crossed my path just yet.

Really what it is–those tears, my sadness, my anger– is fear.

Yes, part of it is heartache. How could someone love someone else and not me?

But the truth is, it’s fear. I’m afraid of what’s to come or better yet, what isn’t to come. Am I’m doomed as everyone likes to tell me, to a life of solitude (for some that may work but for me, it wouldn’t) because I am so damn strong? That’s women! Strong!

Why do I have to be so strong?

The fear is gripping. As I lose the one person I could rely on even though we fought and didn’t see eye-to-eye, I wonder what is next in my life. Who will be my emergency contact? Who will hug me when I’m having a bad day?

Divorce feels like a never-ending cycle of good-byes. I don’t know what will happen to me, to him, and to our new family of sorts. There may be step-children. There may be new partners. There may be me, alone, while he makes more kids (perhaps the hardest lot for me) and moves forward and my “moving forward” may be unlike what I had planned for.

I don’t have a crystal ball and I can’t read palms but what I do know is if there is one thing I wish for myself and for everyone going through a divorce, it is peace. Peace and a life free of fear. It’s no way to wake up each morning.

Black Family Gets Racist Letter Demanding They Move Out 84 Percent White Neighborhood [PHOTOS]

Ronica Copes of the village Lindenhurst, New York got an unpleasant surprise in her mailbox last week and it wasn’t from some bill collector or The Maury Show.

The Black resident of the East New York community received an anonymous letter stating that her family’s presence wasn’t welcomed in the “84% white population.”

“Sooooo, I’m checking my mail and when I come across this I can’t help but laugh..wait, it’s not funny though,” an astonished Copes wrote on her Facebook page, Thursday, May 21. “Where they do that at? Oh yeah Lindenhurst. Unbelievable but then it’s not…our daily reality, I’ve just never seen it in this form.”

According to the New York Post, Copes 37, a freelance publicist and caterer, have been living in their residence since 2013 so it appears the racists just now mustered up enough courage to speak out.

The Town of Babylon, the hub for Lindenhurst, got wind of the letter and issued a statement denouncing its message.

The Town of Babylon was made aware that an anonymous letter was delivered to an African-American family in Lindenhurst that espoused racist hateful views. Elected Officials from the Town of Babylon and Village of Lindenhurst have issued the following statement.

“We strongly condemn this hateful letter and are working closely with the Suffolk County Police and our Anti-Bias Task Force to investigate this incident. The best way to fight bias is with solidarity and we stand with all of our residents in declaring that there is no place for this type of intolerance and hatred in the Village of Lindenhurst, the Town of Babylon, or anywhere in our community. We are, and always will be, a strong diverse community that does not cede ground to hostility, ignorance, or hatred, wherever it may appear.”

– Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer
– Lindenhurst Village Mayor Tom Brennan
– Babylon Deputy Supervisor and member of Babylon Anti-Bias Task Force, Tony Martinez
– Babylon Town Councilman Tom Donnelly
– Babylon Town Councilwoman Jackie Gordon
– Babylon Town Councilman Lindsay Henry
– Babylon Town Clerk Carol Quirk
– Babylon Town Receiver of Taxes Corinne DiSomma
– Lindenhurst Village Deputy Mayor Michael Lavorata

Groom’s Compassionate Wedding Dance With His Mom Will Move You To Tears

At his wedding, groom Luke Rheault had planned to do a special mother-son dance with his mom Rebekah, who had been diagnosed with ALS a year before the nuptials.

Once the song, “Hero” by Mariah Carey, started playing, Luke said something felt off. His mom was sitting in her wheelchair and Luke was towering over her. So he did something unexpected and sweet and got down on his knees for the duration of the dance.

“I remember feeling uncomfortable standing above her for the first few moments of the dance — it just didn’t feel normal, and that’s when I got down on my knees and danced with her,” Luke told The Huffington Post. “I had no idea of the impact it had on everyone until they had told me.”

“I wanted her to feel so special in that very moment, so I tried to make the best of it and spin her around and continue smiling with her,” Luke added. “I don’t recall at any point in the wedding thinking that these might be my last few moments with my mother. So I did what felt right at the time, and I’m really glad I did because it’s a memory that has well-served its purpose.”

Luke and his wife Kristeena tied the knot in November 2008 at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. But it wasn’t until March 2015 that the bride decided to post the heartbreakingly beautiful video to YouTube.

Sadly, Rebekah died in September 2009 — less than a year after she and her son shared their dance.

“There was not a dry eye in the house, everyone was so touched by the dance,” the bride Kristeena told HuffPost. “The tears started as soon as Luke dropped down to his knees to dance with her. You can see Luke’s daughter Arianna in the background crying and hugging my mother and then Luke’s father.”

It wasn’t until Wednesday that Luke watched the dance in its entirety for the first time. He said it’s brought on a wave of emotion and many wonderful memories.

“I found myself reliving all that this woman did for me — everything that she embodied as a mother and everything she taught me to be,” he said. “I tell it to everyone: ‘It’s a void that can never be filled.’ I’ve never considered myself to be a mama’s boy, but I’ve always appreciated everything she has done for me. Growing up and getting older enhances the power of those feelings.”

Queen Latifah And Jimmy Fallon Beatbox ‘Bust A Move’ On ‘The Tonight Show’

Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon are a match made in entertainment heaven.

Latifah stopped by “The Tonight Show” Friday, where she joined Fallon in a performance of Young MC’s “Bust a Move.” The two used a beatboxing iPad app to lay down their beat, and then full out rapped, sang and busted a move for the audience.

When Latifah appeared on Fallon’s “Late Night” back in 2014, she wiped the floor with him during a highly entertaining game of Antler Ring Toss.

Basically whenever Fallon and Latifah get together, we can expect some dream team antics.

‘Mad Men’ Activates Rage, Nostalgia And A Classic Draper Move

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen “Lost Horizon,” the twelfth episode of “Mad Men’s” final season.

Well, that was entirely too much fun. I don’t want to give all my money to lawyers in order to find out for sure, but tonight’s “Mad Men” episode might have supplied an illegal quantity of enjoyment.

That’s not to say there weren’t serious moments in the episode — there certainly were. But there were so many valedictory scenes and so much gif-able goodness in “Lost Horizon” that, as was the case last week, the whole thing felt like a really good box of fancy chocolates. (Maybe that’s not a good analogy, given Ferg’s gift to Joan. Ugh Ferg.)

It’s only fitting that “Mad Men” is spending so much time saying goodbye and letting us spend so much quality time with these people before they go (and quality time = Glen-free time). The whole show is, after all, an exercise nostalgia, maybe for something that never existed. And yet, what we saw transpire for seven seasons was real, in a way — the bonds between these characters, the love, the animosities, the crisis-driven drinking, the camaraderie. At its best, all of that was so heartbreakingly, hilariously real. So palpable that for all these years, we have been engaged on a level beyond flash.

Think back to the great Season 1 finale, “The Wheel.” Talk about full circle: Now think about Drunk Peggy, traveling around and around the office on roller skates as Drunk Roger played the organ (no jests about Roger and organs, I’m trying to share a Serious Thought here).

Peggy traveled in circles in the place she was known and recognized, inside the shell of the the ad hoc family that had always found a place for her. “Around and around, and back home again,” Don said in that classic Carousel pitch,” … to a place where we know we are loved.”

Peggy was known and loved and resented and everything in between at SC&P. Whatever happened, wherever she roamed, there was always a place for her there. That’s why she could walk into McCann Erickson with so much bad-ass attitude the next morning. Hung over, holding her tentacle porn (Bert Cooper, you old goat!), carrying her box of office supplies, she made quite a different picture from the nervous young woman from Bay Ridge who first walked into the Sterling Cooper offices a decade ago. Peggy always knew she could do the work, but the evening of bonding and getting smashed with Roger helped shore up her self-confidence, which had been brought down a few pegs by the McCann debacle (they thought she was a secretary? Honestly!).

Roger is something of a dinosaur, but he accepts that Peggy is opinionated, smart and stubborn — he wouldn’t try to change who and what she is (“You know I need to make men feel at ease.” “Who told you that?”). For all his dinosaur ways, and even though the night was partly about his ego (isn’t it always?), Roger respected Peggy and made her feel wanted. Don had done the same, in his way. As bad as it got there, she felt at home there as well.

So the office bureaucrats at McCann didn’t have a place set aside for her — fine. Peggy would make her own place there. She’ll figure it out. Our ballerina will be fine, on the work front, anyway. (Note to Peggy: Get Stan’s phone number a.s.a.p. so you can hang out on the phone with him all the time. And also please have sex with him. Do not have sex with an octopus.)

The home of Don’s Carousel pitch, the place where you know you are loved… does that even exist anymore for Don Draper? Anywhere? Not to put too fine a point on it, but…nope.

Sally? She took off for school without him. Betty? She’s going back to college and doesn’t care about his attempts to flirt with her. Diana? Clearly better at hobo-ing than him — she is totally gone. Even Meredith administered the final insult to Don: She told him not to nap.

The beer meeting was the final straw. Nobody puts Don Draper in the corner, or in a meeting with a bunch of robotic men in shirtsleeves who all act in unison. Don’t they know Don Draper is a special, magical unicorn, one who can’t be contained by your walls and sated with your crappy roast beef? It’s ironic that so many early pieces about the show referenced “The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit” and talked about how representative Don was of a certain kind of late ‘50s conformity. There was some merit to that, of course: When the show first began, the guys all dressed a certain way, and though Don’s wardrobe has evolved, he has found it difficult to take off his jacket and become just another McCann pod person.

But underneath the traditional suit and the slicked-back hair, Don was always one of a kind. When the show began, Don Draper was Batman, he was the Picasso of pitches, he was a special snowflake made of frozen unicorn tears. God damn it, Meredith, nobody at McCann got that memo!

So Don reminded himself that there’s a big sky outside those windows, and he decided to hobo it. You do you, Don. You do you.

It could have seemed dark — Don’s impromptu road trip, which is his usual method of setting fire to whatever he doesn’t want to deal with — but it wasn’t dark or dreary, partly because other elements of the episode were celebratory, and partly because, come on, who didn’t expect this classic, O.G. Draper move?

We have known for years that Jim Hobart of McCann was a predatory shark and that his shop was an unfeeling colossus not known for doing things the SC&P way, let alone the Don Draper Magical Unicorn way. Jim Hobart is the snake that finally unhinged its jaw and swallowed these people whole — until they weren’t having it, which was almost immediately.

“Mad Men” likes to hit us over the head with certain things to make sure we get the idea or the symbolism or whatever, and this episode was no exception. References to the falling man from the opening credits have been thick on the ground this season; in this episode alone, we had Meredith trying to turn the bare walls of Don’s new apartment into an actual home, we witnessed Don touching the immovable McCann windows, we saw him staring outside in the conference room, and then there was Roger’s relevant quote (“Even if your name’s on the door, you should know better than to get attached to some walls.”). Everything falls away or gets taken away and is impermanent, as long as you have a place where you are known — and that place is home.


So where’s Don’s home? Nowhere. At the moment, that is.

I’m so glad that Diana’s ex-husband put an extra-harsh smackdown on Don’s dopey fantasies about saving yet another Sad Death Brunette. This season has been about — and of course, in general, the show has been devoted to — disabusing Don of his romantic, self-destructive ideas about himself, love, life and death. Beyond destroying Don’s personal fixations, all of which are rooted in his past as an abandoned, orphaned child, “Mad Men” has also depicted the long process of the displacement of men who thought they were special unicorns. Giant firms like McCann don’t need drama queens or arbitrary, unpredictable geniuses (or men who think they’re geniuses). They want drones who follow orders and get with the program.

Don doesn’t need that job, thanks very much. But who needs him? That’s unclear. McCann orders creative directors in bulk, his former wives and his children are fine without him and even Peggy will almost certainly thrive whether or not he’s in her life. “Lost Horizon,” by the way, refers to a classic movie in which the main characters find a hidden utopia tucked far away from the rest of the world. Don has been looking for that place for a decade now — maybe it’s time to give up the hunt? If a man who has been dead for months tells you to give up and stop pursuing a Death Brunette who doesn’t care about you, maybe it’s time to let go of the increasingly pathetic fantasy about saving the lost lady (who is really just the female version of Dick Whitman).

So now what? Don picks up a hitchhiker on the road and is murdered outside St. Paul, Minnesota? (Maybe AMC plans to commission a retro “Fargo” murder mystery?)

I honestly don’t know. All I do know is that episodes like this are making me miss the show already. For all its devotion to tearing away Don’s various cocoons and illusions, for all its relentlessness in showing how the reinvented Dick Whitman has become less relevant every year, the tearing down of walls has also meant the opening up of possibilities. It may have been gross to see Don reinvent himself on the fly in order to sell a lie to Mrs. Bauer, but that facility is also Don’s gift. He can remake himself into whatever he needs to be, more or less. He knows how to turn himself into someone else. He’ll never be able to turn himself into a drone — call that pride or call it bravery — but in the words of another disaffected veteran, they can’t take the sky away from him.

If you’re Joan? They can take things from you. They can take about $ 1.5 million dollars, in today’s money. And she just has to put up with it.

Joan’s storyline was the hard, unyielding kernel in an episode that otherwise went down as smoothly as aged Scotch. Part of the reason the episode was so good was because everyone was adjusting to a radically different reality — every single SC&P character was responding in his or her own way to the massive changes wrought by the McCann merger. From the start, the imagery reinforced the strictures and limits that had been placed on our freewheeling friends. At McCann, conference rooms, many offices and even the hallways felt airless, cramped and dark. The people we know and love were literally being squeezed, and it made for high drama and some awesome comedy.

All the reactions were true to form. Roger got drunk and goofed off, because Roger. Ted kept his head down and tried to fit in (while secretly cheering the moment in which Don chose to bail). Peggy tenaciously continued to work, even though no one at McCann knew what to do with her or much cared about her as an employee. Don took off, even as Meredith proved that she has finally become a really great secretary (she’s good at covering for Don, which is Job 1 for his secretaries, but lately she has been navigating every single situation with amazing efficiency. This may be the most shocking development in “Mad Men” history.)

True to her image as the woman who does not let the world get her down — at least not for long — Joan tried hard to stick it out at McCann. They wouldn’t let her.

It’s pretty clear that Joan would probably not call herself a feminist, and yet it’s also obvious that she’s been closely following the work of feminist activists of the era and also keeping track of the high-profile lawsuits at Newsweek and Ladies’ Home Journal. Joan has been putting up with various forms of harassment for her entire career, and she’s seeing other women saying, “Enough.”

Part of her that would love to drag the Neanderthals of McCann through court — they more than deserve it — but that would end up draining her of time, mental energy and money, and they know that. So she has to live with a fresh round of injustices — the come-ons from Ferg, the patronizing behavior of Dennis, the furious dismissal from Jim. How dare she stand up for herself? How dare she threaten him? For her boldness, she has to leave $ 250,000 on the table, which is infuriating, but she really didn’t have a choice. That scene in Joan’s office was beautifully played by Christina Hendricks and John Slattery: There is so much history between those two characters, and he was trying to atone for some of his own past missteps in that moment. I loved that he never questioned why she was so enraged. He promoted the pragmatic solution, but he understood.

[Sidebar: I have to inject here that H. Richard Greene has been unvaryingly great as Jim Hobart. It’s terrific that in this last run of episodes, the SC&P gang has had a substantial antagonist in the form of a man who tells you everything is going to be fine so smoothly that you instantly reach for your wallet and your soul to make sure both are still in your possession. Those hard, dead eyes are always there, waiting to be unsheathed like weapons. Under his slick, fake-genial surface, Jim is clearly a very smart and resourceful predator. To mix it up with this crew, an actor and a character need to have a lot of skill and presence, and Greene has brought both.]

Back to Joan: There are so many sad, rage-inducing things about her situation (and if you don’t think situations exactly like this still happen, here’s some fun reading for you). One of the saddest aspects of this debacle is that Joan thought she might make some friends at McCann — her face glowed with hopefulness after the copy writers left her office. They also don’t identify as feminists per se, but she could have found common cause with them and surely would have enjoyed a healthy bitch session about the horrifyingly sexist men of the firm. But the friendships were not meant to be. The men of McCann’s couldn’t abide the status and prestige she had built up at SC&P, so they had to destroy it.

Nostalgia, as Don famously told us, is Greek for “the pain from an old wound.” Joan has very little nostalgia for the old place because they never treated her all that well there — she had to fight for every scrap of autonomy and responsibility she ever got. Peggy was also wounded many times by those who thought she wasn’t up to the job — even Don would occasionally question her work when he was in a particularly snippy mood. She had fun with Roger that last night, but she never had the luxury of thinking she could just coast like he did most of his life.

Men like Roger and Don have the time and the status that allows them to wallow in nostalgia, to reminisce about what was and what could have been. It might have been a hell of a boat, but maybe it was less fun for those front-line workers who had to bail the damn thing out when it started taking on water.

That said, it’s pretty clear that for all the characters — aside from maybe Harry Crane, who is indestructible and still kind of an ass — will never find a place like SC&P again. Stop doing this, “Mad Men.” Stop giving me a twinge in my heart more powerful than memory alone. I’m not ready to let go.

And now for a hail of bullets:

  • Though it was a very good episode, there was a surprising lack of Pete Campbell Punching A Guy. I suppose the king didn’t order it. Sadface.
  • My guess for the final image of “Mad Men”: Don Draper heads all the way to California and looks up Lou Avery, who is on his way to the Los Angeles airport to board his flight to Japan. Don punches him in the face because even off-screen, Lou continues to be the worst.
  • I think we’re done with Betty Draper Francis? And no farewell to Betty would be complete without creator Matthew Weiner trolling us in some way. Of course the woman who was massively immature back in Season 1 and who consulted a psychiatrist when her hands were showing strange symptoms (of what might have been called hysteria back in the day) is reading Freud’s “Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria.” It’s still hilarious that Betty thinks she has the kind of insight into human nature that would allow her to become an effective therapist. Whatever. Later, Betty. It’s been real.
  • Goodbye also to Shirley, who was always far too cool for Roger. It’s kind of a little wince-inducing that in the third-to-last episode, “Mad Men” explains why it never gave African-Americans significant screen time: The industry is “not a comfortable place for everyone.” Really? At this late date, this is the show’s excuse? Weak sauce. Well, if nothing else, Shirley got a great exit line: “You’re very amusing.”
  • Let me state again that Roger bribed Peggy to hang out with him by giving her a picture of an antique drawing of an octopus pleasuring a lady. I don’t get to write that sentence much, so I’m taking full advantage.
  • The moment when “Mad Men” turned into a horror movie, thanks to the spooky music Roger was playing, was pretty great.
  • This week in Is Roger Alive? Yes, Roger is still alive. I don’t know how or why that is the case. But I’ll take it!
  • “All I found was lighter fluid. I’m not there yet.”
  • Don should have hobo’ed before that beer meeting, just based on Ferg’s horrifyingly bad impression of him, which was more Nixon than Don. I truly loved Don’s plastered-on grin in that moment. It barely hid how much he hated Ferg right then. Ugh Ferg.
  • “I’m Don Draper from McCann Erickson.” And that’s when the clock started officially ticking on the Don Draper Heads Out West Just Because countdown.
  • “Who told you you got to get pissed off?” If Joan had begun shooting lasers out of her eyes and burned Dennis to a crisp in that scene, I would have loved that. A lot.
  • “He’s not going to work for a girl.” RAGE LASERS, ACTIVATE.
  • So in the middle of this episode, “Mad Men” more or less stopped to hang out with Roger and Peggy; it felt like a fan-fiction premise come to life. There was no reason for any of it, but that’s often when the show is at its best — when it’s just appreciating the characters, recollecting their pasts and re-affirming their bonds. Also Peggy drunkenly rollerskating as Roger played the organ is one of the greatest “Mad Men” images ever.
  • So if you were waiting for a classic Don Draper pitch, he gave it to the Midwestern man that was described in the beer meeting — a man who had a family and probably some college, a man who probably had power tools and a lawnmower in the garage. And of course Don’s pitch to that man (and his wife) was a complete lie, which the guy saw through immediately. Nobody is buying what Don Draper is selling these days.
  • How fun is it that Diana the Sad Brunette has a gloomy, intense daughter who makes Wednesday Addams look frivolous? So fun.
  • “She’s a tornado, just leaving a trail of broken bodies behind her.” You could say that about Don, too, although his mentorship of Peggy means that he’s created something of lasting value, in addition to all the destruction he’s wrought.
  • To hear David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” which came out in 1969, was truly jarring, in a good way. It’s one more marker indicating that the era of “Mad Men” has passed — it sounds so alien and strange, compared to what was on the radio in 1960 when Don and his crew were on the way up. Contrast that bright pop with Bowie’s eerie song about a dislocated man lost in space — a song that is, of course, entirely appropriate to Don’s rootless situation.
  • PEGGY SWAGGER AWWW YESSS!

‘Mad Men’ Activates Rage, Nostalgia And A Classic Draper Move

Everything falls away or gets taken away and is impermanent, as long as you have a place where you are known — and that place is home.


So where’s Don’s home? Nowhere. At the moment, that is.

I’m so glad that Diana’s ex-husband put an extra-harsh smackdown on Don’s dopey fantasies about saving yet another Sad Death Brunette. This season has been about — and of course, in general, the show has been devoted to — disabusing Don of his romantic, self-destructive ideas about himself, love, life and death. Beyond destroying Don’s personal fixations, all of which are rooted in his past as an abandoned, orphaned child, “Mad Men” has also depicted the long process of the displacement of men who thought they were special unicorns. Giant firms like McCann don’t need drama queens or arbitrary, unpredictable geniuses (or men who think they’re geniuses). They want drones who follow orders and get with the program.

Don doesn’t need that job, thanks very much. But who needs him? That’s unclear. McCann orders creative directors in bulk, his former wives and his children are fine without him and even Peggy will almost certainly thrive whether or not he’s in her life. “Lost Horizon,” by the way, refers to a classic movie in which the main characters find a hidden utopia tucked far away from the rest of the world. Don has been looking for that place for a decade now — maybe it’s time to give up the hunt? If a man who has been dead for months tells you to give up and stop pursuing a Death Brunette who doesn’t care about you, maybe it’s time to let go of the increasingly pathetic fantasy about saving the lost lady (who is really just the female version of Dick Whitman).

So now what? Don picks up a hitchhiker on the road and is murdered outside St. Paul, Minnesota? (Maybe AMC plans to commission a retro “Fargo” murder mystery?)

I honestly don’t know. All I do know is that episodes like this are making me miss the show already. For all its devotion to tearing away Don’s various cocoons and illusions, for all its relentlessness in showing how the reinvented Dick Whitman has become less relevant every year, the tearing down of walls has also meant the opening up of possibilities. It may have been gross to see Don reinvent himself on the fly in order to sell a lie to Mrs. Bauer, but that facility is also Don’s gift. He can remake himself into whatever he needs to be, more or less. He knows how to turn himself into someone else. He’ll never be able to turn himself into a drone — call that pride or call it bravery — but in the words of another disaffected veteran, they can’t take the sky away from him.

If you’re Joan? They can take things from you. They can take about $ 1.5 million dollars, in today’s money. And she just has to put up with it.

Joan’s storyline was the hard, unyielding kernel in an episode that otherwise went down as smoothly as aged Scotch. Part of the reason the episode was so good was because everyone was adjusting to a radically different reality — every single SC&P character was responding in his or her own way to the massive changes wrought by the McCann merger. From the start, the imagery reinforced the strictures and limits that had been placed on our freewheeling friends. At McCann, conference rooms, many offices and even the hallways felt airless, cramped and dark. The people we know and love were literally being squeezed, and it made for high drama and some awesome comedy.

All the reactions were true to form. Roger got drunk and goofed off, because Roger. Ted kept his head down and tried to fit in (while secretly cheering the moment in which Don chose to bail). Peggy tenaciously continued to work, even though no one at McCann knew what to do with her or much cared about her as an employee. Don took off, even as Meredith proved that she has finally become a really great secretary (she’s good at covering for Don, which is Job 1 for his secretaries, but lately she has been navigating every single situation with amazing efficiency. This may be the most shocking development in “Mad Men” history.)

True to her image as the woman who does not let the world get her down — at least not for long — Joan tried hard to stick it out at McCann. They wouldn’t let her.

It’s pretty clear that Joan would probably not call herself a feminist, and yet it’s also obvious that she’s been closely following the work of feminist activists of the era and also keeping track of the high-profile lawsuits at Newsweek and Ladies’ Home Journal. Joan has been putting up with various forms of harassment for her entire career, and she’s seeing other women saying, “Enough.”

Part of her that would love to drag the Neanderthals of McCann through court — they more than deserve it — but that would end up draining her of time, mental energy and money, and they know that. So she has to live with a fresh round of injustices — the come-ons from Ferg, the patronizing behavior of Dennis, the furious dismissal from Jim. How dare she stand up for herself? How dare she threaten him? For her boldness, she has to leave $ 250,000 on the table, which is infuriating, but she really didn’t have a choice. That scene in Joan’s office was beautifully played by Christina Hendricks and John Slattery: There is so much history between those two characters, and he was trying to atone for some of his own past missteps in that moment. I loved that he never questioned why she was so enraged. He promoted the pragmatic solution, but he understood.

[Sidebar: I have to inject here that H. Richard Greene has been unvaryingly great as Jim Hobart. It’s terrific that in this last run of episodes, the SC&P gang has had a substantial antagonist in the form of a man who tells you everything is going to be fine so smoothly that you instantly reach for your wallet and your soul to make sure both are still in your possession. Those hard, dead eyes are always there, waiting to be unsheathed like weapons. Under his slick, fake-genial surface, Jim is clearly a very smart and resourceful predator. To mix it up with this crew, an actor and a character need to have a lot of skill and presence, and Greene has brought both.]

Back to Joan: There are so many sad, rage-inducing things about her situation (and if you don’t think situations exactly like this still happen, here’s some fun reading for you). One of the saddest aspects of this debacle is that Joan thought she might make some friends at McCann — her face glowed with hopefulness after the copy writers left her office. They also don’t identify as feminists per se, but she could have found common cause with them and surely would have enjoyed a healthy bitch session about the horrifyingly sexist men of the firm. But the friendships were not meant to be. The men of McCann’s couldn’t abide the status and prestige she had built up at SC&P, so they had to destroy it.

Nostalgia, as Don famously told us, is Greek for “the pain from an old wound.” Joan has very little nostalgia for the old place because they never treated her all that well there — she had to fight for every scrap of autonomy and responsibility she ever got. Peggy was also wounded many times by those who thought she wasn’t up to the job — even Don would occasionally question her work when he was in a particularly snippy mood. She had fun with Roger that last night, but she never had the luxury of thinking she could just coast like he did most of his life.

Men like Roger and Don have the time and the status that allows them to wallow in nostalgia, to reminisce about what was and what could have been. It might have been a hell of a boat, but maybe it was less fun for those front-line workers who had to bail the damn thing out when it started taking on water.

That said, it’s pretty clear that for all the characters — aside from maybe Harry Crane, who is indestructible and still kind of an ass — will never find a place like SC&P again. Stop doing this, “Mad Men.” Stop giving me a twinge in my heart more powerful than memory alone. I’m not ready to let go.

And now for a hail of bullets:

  • Though it was a very good episode, there was a surprising lack of Pete Campbell Punching A Guy. I suppose the king didn’t order it. Sadface.
  • My guess for the final image of “Mad Men”: Don Draper heads all the way to California and looks up Lou Avery, who is on his way to the Los Angeles airport to board his flight to Japan. Don punches him in the face because even off-screen, Lou continues to be the worst.
  • I think we’re done with Betty Draper Francis? And no farewell to Betty would be complete without creator Matthew Weiner trolling us in some way. Of course the woman who was massively immature back in Season 1 and who consulted a psychiatrist when her hands were showing strange symptoms (of what might have been called hysteria back in the day) is reading Freud’s “Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria.” It’s still hilarious that Betty thinks she has the kind of insight into human nature that would allow her to become an effective therapist. Whatever. Later, Betty. It’s been real.
  • Goodbye also to Shirley, who was always far too cool for Roger. It’s kind of a little wince-inducing that in the third-to-last episode, “Mad Men” explains why it never gave African-Americans significant screen time: The industry is “not a comfortable place for everyone.” Really? At this late date, this is the show’s excuse? Weak sauce. Well, if nothing else, Shirley got a great exit line: “You’re very amusing.”
  • Let me state again that Roger bribed Peggy to hang out with him by giving her a picture of an antique drawing of an octopus pleasuring a lady. I don’t get to write that sentence much, so I’m taking full advantage.
  • The moment when “Mad Men” turned into a horror movie, thanks to the spooky music Roger was playing, was pretty great.
  • This week in Is Roger Alive? Yes, Roger is still alive. I don’t know how or why that is the case. But I’ll take it!
  • “All I found was lighter fluid. I’m not there yet.”
  • Don should have hobo’ed before that beer meeting, just based on Ferg’s horrifyingly bad impression of him, which was more Nixon than Don. I truly loved Don’s plastered-on grin in that moment. It barely hid how much he hated Ferg right then. Ugh Ferg.
  • “I’m Don Draper from McCann Erickson.” And that’s when the clock started officially ticking on the Don Draper Heads Out West Just Because countdown.
  • “Who told you you got to get pissed off?” If Joan had begun shooting lasers out of her eyes and burned Dennis to a crisp in that scene, I would have loved that. A lot.
  • “He’s not going to work for a girl.” RAGE LASERS, ACTIVATE.
  • So in the middle of this episode, “Mad Men” more or less stopped to hang out with Roger and Peggy; it felt like a fan-fiction premise come to life. There was no reason for any of it, but that’s often when the show is at its best — when it’s just appreciating the characters, recollecting their pasts and re-affirming their bonds. Also Peggy drunkenly rollerskating as Roger played the organ is one of the greatest “Mad Men” images ever.
  • So if you were waiting for a classic Don Draper pitch, he gave it to the Midwestern man that was described in the beer meeting — a man who had a family and probably some college, a man who probably had power tools and a lawnmower in the garage. And of course Don’s pitch to that man (and his wife) was a complete lie, which the guy saw through immediately. Nobody is buying what Don Draper is selling these days.
  • How fun is it that Diana the Sad Brunette has a gloomy, intense daughter who makes Wednesday Addams look frivolous? So fun.
  • “She’s a tornado, just leaving a trail of broken bodies behind her.” You could say that about Don, too, although his mentorship of Peggy means that he’s created something of lasting value, in addition to all the destruction he’s wrought.
  • To hear David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” which came out in 1969, was truly jarring, in a good way. It’s one more marker indicating that the era of “Mad Men” has passed — it sounds so alien and strange, compared to what was on the radio in 1960 when Don and his crew were on the way up. Contrast that bright pop with Bowie’s eerie song about a dislocated man lost in space — a song that is, of course, entirely appropriate to Don’s rootless situation.
  • PEGGY SWAGGER AWWW YESSS!

The No. 1 Thing To Do If You Want To Move On Post-Split

A wise, leather-and-lace-clad sage once said, “I’ve been afraid of changing ’cause I’ve built my life around you.” (Yes, that sage was Stevie Nicks. We love you, Stevie.)

And that’s exactly why it’s so hard to move on after a bad breakup, social scientist Gary Lewandowski says in the TED talk above. The relationships we’re in define us, sustain us and, yep, they can absolutely break us when they end, the Monmouth University professor says.

But a split doesn’t have to leave you permanently broken. In fact, Lewandowski’s research has shown that a breakup can oftentimes be a very good thing. In 2007, he and his team asked 155 undergraduates who had recently broken up and hadn’t rebounded to describe the breakup’s overall impact on them. A majority (41.3 percent) rated their breakup experience as positive, while 25.7 percent said it was neutral. Just 33 percent reported that the breakup was negative.

What did the happy-after-heartbreak people do differently? They found themselves, Lewandowski says. As he explains it, a lot of failed relationships involve one partner holding the other back. Breaking up can sometimes allow people to rediscover themselves and the activities that bring them happiness.

“They’re experiencing what I call the rediscovery of their self, which is recapturing the things you may have sacrificed or diminished while you were in a relationship,” he says. “When your relationship doesn’t help you become a better person, ending it does.”

In short, if you’re feeling particularly bad about the end of a relationship, get back out there and do the things you love: Hit the gym and endorphin it up or go play World of Warcraft into the wee small hours of the morning, if that’s more your thing. And if you’re still feeling down, remind yourself of what Lewandowski says in the clip above: “Great relationships seldom fail, bad ones do as they should.”

Our Brain Is Wired To Move On After Heartbreak, Study Says

We know that humans are wired to fall in love, but are we also built to break up?

Love is what evolutionary psychologists call a human universal — a fundamental human experience that appears across all cultures. According to a new study, the experience of falling out of love and moving on to a new partner may be just as universal.

A recent review of evolutionary psychology literature, conducted by researchers at Saint Louis University, Florida State University and the University of Cincinnati, suggests that humans are built to experience the pain of a breakup and then move on to a new partner, and that our brains actually facilitate the severing of romantic ties.

The researchers explain that the ability to endure heartbreak and ultimately enter a new relationship may have offered an evolutionary advantage.

“In our evolutionary past, selection pressures may have been such that individuals who could successfully jettison a mate and find a new one, when the situation called for it, would have been better able to solve the evolutionary imperative of reproduction — in other words, they sent more of their genes on to the next generation,” Dr. Brian Boutwell, an epidemiologist at Saint Louis University and the study’s lead author, told The Huffington Post.

Boutwell and his colleagues looked at the process of falling out of love and ending a relationship (what they call “primary mate ejection”) and the process of entering a new relationship (“secondary mate ejection”). Drawing on research showing that the brain circuitry involved in romantic love is also implicated in addictive behaviors, they hypothesized that falling out of love and moving on is a process akin to overcoming a drug addiction. And of course, those who are able to do so successfully have better survival and reproductive odds.

The findings also show that while both men and women fall out of love and move on to new romantic relationships, they are likely motivated to break up for different reasons.

“Males would be especially likely to jettison a mate when they expect that a partner has been sexually unfaithful,” Boutwell said in an email. “Females, on the other hand, would be expected to jettison a mate when they have become unable (or unwilling) to provide resources and to ensure the survival and safety of the female and her offspring.”

So what does this say about monogamy? The study suggests that humans are indeed wired to be with just one person — but not necessarily for a lifetime.

“Humans are (generally speaking) serial monogamists,” Boutwell said. “We virtually never mate for life with one partner, so mate ejection provides a mechanism for moving between partners when that becomes necessary.”

The findings were published March 2 in the journal Review of General Psychology.

5 Signs Your Narcissist Is Ready To Move On

Falling in love with a narcissist feels like you’ve finally entered the fairy tale relationship you’ve always wanted. Everything is perfect – you are doted on, the passion is like nothing you’ve experienced, and you are told, “You’re finally the one for me,” making you feel like you’ve been chosen out of all the others.

But the catch is, you don’t know you have fallen for a narcissist until it’s too late – you’ve fallen hard or worse, you’re now married which makes it more difficult for you to break free. You may start to see some red flags, but you’re not entirely sure – and if you’re a people pleaser, you likely question yourself before you question your partner.

No matter where you are in your relationship, there are actual signs where your prince or princess charming begins to show their true narcissistic self. It’s important to understand that your partner isn’t “changing.” Like a chameleon, a narcissist must blend in with healthy, socially functioning people so that they can perpetuate their false sense of self. Their colors change but they’re still a chameleon.

Unfortunately, they can never uphold their camouflage for too long, which is why they must need new things, new people and new supply so they can discard the old (which ends up being you).

Here are 5 signs that your chameleon is finally showing their true colors, as well as preparing for their next round of narcissistic supply.

1) Doting turns into negating: You were once told that you are smart, attractive and fun, and your outgoing nature was a major turn-on, but now your narcissist sees you as the opposite. Your intelligence is now seen as cunning, your attractiveness is now overzealous, and your wit and humor are now vulgar. The very wonderful traits they once loved about you are now the “reason” for the relationship’s demise, and they remind you of it daily.

2) Your success becomes a threat: Perhaps you’ve been promoted or you won that award you’ve been seeking, but instead of praise you’re blamed for working too hard or seeking too much attention. All of your accomplishments are deemed as threats to your partner’s very existence, because they know they can’t keep up with you. You also threaten their own spotlight of receiving praise and approval from others, so you will be told that your successes aren’t that great, so pipe down.

3) They are Jekyll at the office and Hyde when at home: Everyone loves Jekyll and thinks you are so lucky to be married to such a charming, charismatic person. But when Hyde returns home, you are faced with moodiness, rage, disorder, alcoholism, isolation, and an unwillingness to take part in family activities. This Jekyll and Hyde routine occurs because it is exhausting to maintain a false sense of self eight hours a day, and they ultimately resent you and your family for reminding them of their true inabilities.

4) Your approval of them no longer matters: You used to be the one and only person whose opinion truly mattered, but now a compliment to them goes unnoticed. At this point, if your narcissist is disgusted by you, your compliments are deemed as needy and desperate. They must now go elsewhere to seek approval from those they still admire, and whom haven’t caught on to their narcissistic ways.

5) Their empathy turns into apathy: Your illness or bad day at the office was once empathized with chicken soup or a bouquet of flowers. But now, no matter how hard you have it, they remind you that they have it worse than you. And as you try harder and harder to get an ounce of empathy, it backfires with only apathy. And this is probably the hardest thing about loving a narcissist – because when your emotional needs go unmet, you continue to chase after them which puts your self-esteem in severe jeopardy. Once your self-esteem is gone, you run the risk of staying with your narcissist long-term, because you don’t think you can do any better.

The double edged sword of loving a narcissist is that the very qualities that attracted you to them are what they resent the most, because they know deep down they cannot ever mirror your greatness.

And because you are the one closest to them, you become “onto them,” and begin to question their behavior. A narcissist’s greatest fear is being exposed that they are no longer truly special, which is why they must have abundant supply from abundant sources. Which leaves you, their partner, abandoned, discarded, abused, and traumatized.

If you find these behavior patterns ring true for your relationship, break free as soon as possible. They will never change, merely because they think they don’t have to.

Mo’ne Davis Hits Kevin Hart With B Button Spin Move At NBA Celebrity All-Star Game [VIDEO]

Kevin Hart managed to walk away with his fourth MVP honor at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game but he was on the wrong side of the top highlight when he was crossed up by female Little League star Mo’ne Davis.

Excuse me, that’s AP Female Athlete of Year Mo’ne Davis.

Via MSN:

Playing in the All-Star Celebrity Game against opponents more than twice her age, the 13-year-old drove past Hart, the game’s MVP for the fourth time, with a spectacular spin move for an easy layup in the first quarter Friday night.

“That was pretty cool,” Davis said. “I work on it, but usually don’t do it. It was the right time to do it.”

Hart, who like Davis is from Philadelphia, said, “No excuses,” as he returned to the huddle shortly after her basket.

“It was a lot of fun, a lot of people never saw me play basketball,” she said. “To play in the celebrity All-Star game was pretty cool.”

The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year finished the All-Star Game with four points, helping the West team beat the East 59-51. Hart had 15 points.

“She was really impressive out there,” said WNBA star Skylar Diggins. “She definitely held her own.”

Davis was a little star struck, too. She made sure to take a photo with Diggins after the game before she left.

Gillette #UseYourAnd Ad Tells Women To Move Beyond Labels (But Still Shave Their Legs)

“You are warmth and wisdom. And grace and guts. No ‘ifs’ or ‘buts,’ just ‘ands.'”

That is the message behind Gillette Venus’ #UseYourAnd campaign. The spot features a diverse group of young women playing sports, reading, laughing and playing music, while another young woman performs spoken word, encouraging women everywhere to break free from the boxes they have been placed in.

“One dimensional labels limit your potential,” reads the text at the end of the minute and a half video. “Venus invites women everywhere to #UseYourAnd.”

The message behind the campaign is an important one: Women (and men) should work to break down gender-based barriers. After all, it’s those stereotypes and labels that encourage a society where women are paid less than men for doing the same work, where women’s value is often reduced to their looks, where boys are told to “be a man” no matter the cost and where college sexual assault is a true epidemic.

Yes, labels hurt and limit women. But Gillette loses us a little bit when considering that the spot is ultimately promoting a razor. It’s basically saying, Hey ladies! Ditch all those demeaning and limiting labels — except that body hair stuff. Definitely shave your legs, armpits and any other area of the body deemed necessary by the powers that be.

We appreciate the pseudo-feminist effort, but we’d prefer to #UseOurAnd to lose the one-dimensonal labels AND the faux-empowering aspects of the beauty industry.

The Aquabats! celebrate their 20th anniversary at Comic-Con as they ponder the group’s next move

First the good news … The Aquabats are celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band this year. And thanks to their Emmy Award-winning television series, The Aquabats! Super Show! on HUB Network, the ‘Bats have greatly expanded their audience over the past three years. Not only winning over thousands of new fans here in the States with their skillful mix of comedy & music but also becoming something of a cult phenomenon in the U.K and Australia.

2014-07-24-Banniversary1.jpg

Which is understandable. I mean, it’s hard not to like a TV series like The Aquabats! Super Show! which delivers high-energy live-action musical adventures with a healthy helping of camp on the side. Just as the 1960s era Batman series used to feature lots of celebrities making tongue-in-cheek cameo appearance, here’s just a few of the famous folk who’ve popped up on the Super Show! : Weird Al Yankovic, John Heder, Lou Diamond Philips, Rip Taylor and Paul Scheer. Not to mention Flight of the Conchords Rhys Darby as the Shark Fighter, SNL’s Robert Smigel as the Krampus, Party Down and Freaks and Geeks alum Martin Starr and Sam Levine as a Guitar snob and a shape-shifting Pilgrim boy and Reno 911‘s Ben Garant as the voice of a giant one-eyed cat named ‘Kitty Litter.’

Now the bad news … Even though the HUB Network is currently available in over 70 million homes in the U.S., future plans for production is up in the air for Hasbro Entertainment and Discovery Communications (i.e., the two corporations who actually own this kid’s cable channel). Which is why they’ve begun making changes at the top (Last month, Hub Network president and CEO Margaret Loesch announced that she will be stepping down at the end of 2014) as well as abandoning The Hub’s previously kid-centric schedule in favor of programming that will hopefully be more cost effective.

2014-07-24-Banniversary10.jpg

Which is why the Aquabats are now in a bit of a pickle so-to-speak. The popularity of The Aquabats! Super Show! has helped the band connect with a brand-new generation of fans: Kids 3 & up who have begun turning up (with their parents in tow) at live concerts to see their heroes up close in person. And, ever since the first season of show began airing in the U.K and down under in OZ, new fans of the band are now actively campaigning for the ‘Bats to come and perform over seas as well.

More to the point, even though it was their hit Hub Network television series which finally put the ‘Bats on the map for many new fans here in the USA, and abroad, the Hub’s recent plans to downsize their network has put The Aquabats! Super Show! out of commission for a third season. So now, as the Aquabats get ready for a sold-out concert tonight at San Diego’s House of Blues (not to mention several signings & a Friday night panel at this year’s Comic-Con International), onecan’t help but wonder what their next move should be.

“It’s all so weird,” admitted Christian Jacobs AKA The MC Bat Commander during a recent phone interview. “We just finished our first East Coast tour since the premiere of the Super Show!, we did seventeen shows in nine different states. We not only had the Aquabats faithful turn out in full force, but we also had all of these new younger fans & their parents show up. And at every stop along the way, we kept getting the same question over & over. ‘When are you guys going to be make some more episodes of the show?’ And my response was always ‘Um…I don’t know.’ “

“Don’t get me wrong. We’d love to make some more episodes of The Aquabats! Super Show! It’s been a dream come true to make the episodes that we have. And the support of the fans and the critical acclaim has been great.” Jacobs continued. “More to the point, everything we heard was that the show has been a real Cinderella story for the Hub and that it was rating really well with viewers. We just assumed that we’d eventually go back into production or at least get picked up for Season 3. But then we began hearing rumors about the network wanting to rebrand itself. And that is when we began hearing rumblings that our show might not get renewed.”

Shifting gears, Jacobs continued. “…We always modeled The Aquabats! Super Show! after the old live-action Batman TV series from the 1960s,” Jacobs stated. “Which worked so well on many levels. On one hand, it was amazing watching that show as a kid. I was so into it. The action, the drama, the colors. But then watching Batman as an adult, there is so much more under the surface to enjoy and laugh at. It was so aware of itself and smart. It’s probably one of — if not the best — TV show ever made.”

“An that’s what’s been so great about hitting the road for all the live shows we’ve been playing this year. To have parents come up to us and say ‘Guys! Our kids love your show but we really enjoy watching it with our kids,’ ” Christian enthused. ” It’s the proof that they’re getting what we’ve been trying to do here: create a kid’s TV series that works on different levels. A show that’s broad enough for kids but still sophisticated, satirical and silly enough to entertain the ‘big kids.’ “

2014-07-24-Banniversary6.jpg

Mind you, Jacobs doesn’t blame Hasbro executives or Discovery Communications for opting not to pick up a third season of The Aquabats! Super Show!

“I mean, if The Aquabats! Super Show! doesn’t fit into their vision of what the new HUB will look like … Well, it is what it is,” Christian said. “But given that we now live in a world where people are streaming TV shows directly onto their iPhones & computers, and given that companies like Netflix & Yahoo! are now picking up so much new content for their customers … I just find it hard to believe that The Aquabats! Super Show! is really over. I mean, we haven’t even made any toys yet.”

Which is why last month — after Jacobs and other members of the Super Show! production team were given the word that the show wasn’t being renewed — Christian and the rest of the team opted to put as many of this TV series’ sets & props as they could into self-funded temporary storage.

“That’s what we’ll be telling the Aquabats’ fans this Friday night at our Comic-Con panel. (Which — by the way — is being held in Room 25ABC from 9 – 10 p.m.) That the Super Show! isn’t really over. It took us almost 15 years to get that TV series made. And even though we’ve got a bunch more concert dates lined up for the rest of this year, our first priority is to find a new home for The Aquabats! Super Show!,” Jacobs stated.

2014-07-24-Banniversary9.jpg

That never-say-die attitude which Christian displays off-screen seems very similar to MC Bat Commander, that over-the-top, live-action cartoon-of-a-man trying to be a super hero that Jacobs plays on the small screen. Which is why — given that the Aquabats are such perennial underdogs — it would really be great to finally have these characters come out on top and have some network or online presence provide a new home for this Emmy Award-winning TV series.

“As a band, we’ve got 20 years worth of fan support behind us,” Christian concluded. “Not to mention a brand-new audience of kids & parents who are eager for more episodes! Plus there’s people in the U.K. and Australia who have only just discovered the Super Show! So what are we supposed to do? Just give up? Not a chance! I mean, we’ve already got scripts written and ready to go!”

Which is why I guess it must be said: “AQUABATS! LET’S GO!”
