Kids growing up today have absolutely no idea what a true TV theme song is.
Now, they turn on any of the CSI shows and get a song from The Who. They turn on Law & Order and get a “bum-bummmmm”. They turn on Survivor and, depending on the intricacies of the episode plotline may either get the long-form, short-form, or some variation in-between of the show’s intro.
For some, the smell of coffee is the equivalent of a new morning, a fresh day ahead.
Starbucks and other gourmet coffee shops have brainwashed the world into believing a $4 cup of coffee is superior to anything that you can brew at home for pennies a cup (we’ve since learned that’s not true – otherwise, why would those same coffee shops be selling coffee beans to take home for self-brewing?).

Christina Hendricks from Mad Men knows a little bit about what it takes for a man – a real man – to get her attention.
