Elise Hu is a hunter and gatherer in Washington, DC. In her idle time you will find her daydreaming about another life in which she travels for a living. Delicious food brings her great joy and her favorite emotion is nostalgia, which is probably why she loves Mad Men so much.
Reeve Hamilton once found himself in a urinal next to Matt Weiner, and as they were peeing, Mad Men’s creator tried to start a conversation about how long he had waited to urinate. Reeve did not respond.
Dan Leyendecker did a stint as Elise’s Starbucks coffee-buyer. He’s otherwise known as Dan the Intern, even though he has long graduated from interndom.
Tim Leong is from St. Louis. So is Jon Hamm. What a “Dick” rider.
Walton Muyumba is the only one with a phD who’s blogging here. He specializes in African-American literature and American Studies. He teaches courses in The Blues and Poetry, Literature and Philosophy, the Short Story, Modernism, Postmodernism, Race and Critical Theory, and Modern Drama. No joke.
Phillip Martin imagines that his writing is somewhere between Don Draper’s and Bill Simmons’. It is really more like R.L. Stine’s, but humor him, will ya?
Matt Stiles prefers Deadwood and The Wire, but appreciates Mad Men enough to talk about it. In his spare time, he rescues small animals from shady parking lots and makes inappropriate jokes.
