The New Blog
August 9, 2009
This is a blog about the t.v. show Mad Men which begins its third season on August 16th. It’s by a number of Mad Men enthusiasts who like to blog and feel the show has a lot to say about history, culture, and America among other things. The inspiration for this blog came from A Supposedly Fun Blog written by much more famous bloggers. Hopefully this project will be half as good as that one.
The name is inspired by the show (obviously) and also Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged which shows up every once in a while in the show (Don is given the book and then Campbell gets it later too), hence the name “Mad Men Shrugged” although this blog does everything but shrug Mad Men.
I’m Daniel, a news junky and history major at the University of Michigan. In the next few days and the next few months I’ll be posting my thoughts on Mad Men related topics here. I hope you enjoy.
