T-Minus Two Days

EDIT: Live Blogging has been canceled due to technical limitations. Sincere Apologies. Expect measures to be taken to fix this in the future…

August 16th looms like the flickering, unattainable green light on the bay of West Egg.

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning——

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

Season 3, Episode 1:

Created and written by Matthew Weiner; directed by Phil Abraham; Mr. Weiner and Scott Hornbacher, executive producers; Lisa Albert, supervising producer; Dahvi Waller, co-producer; Dwayne Shattuck and Blake McCormick, producers. Produced by Lionsgate.

Gillette Double Edge Razors

I was turned on to antique razors last winter, and haven’t looked back since. However, I’m currently the aspiring owner of a definite beard, (seen here attached to Sean Connery’s face), so my razor hasn’t received much attention lately.

Also, fans of Mad Men may remember a cameo appearance by a classic Gillette when Don comes to the shattering realization that his affair with Bobby Barrett will be uncovered. (Season 2, Episode 6).
