    Hi Kevin. I don't have your email but I wanted to hook you up with my site Basket of Kisses which is the only major Mad Men site; Weiner gave us a shout-out at the Globes, which delighted us.

    I also sent my brother, an intellectual property lawyer, a link to the article about your YouTube struggles. I'm sure he'll be fascinated.

  • alsolikelife

    Hey Dehlia, I had no idea you were behind Basket of Kisses. Did you guys organize a party for the screening of the season 2 finale? I was very close to attending…

    By all means tell your brother about this mess – I'd be interested to hear what he has to say. Thanks.

  • DeborahLipp

    Not only did we organize a party, Matt Weiner showed up! Here's a link:

    I am the mad blogging queen. I have a personal blog, Basket of Kisses (with my sister Roberta), and The Ultimate James Bond Fan Blog.
