2. Mad Men wallpaper (link via Vulture) – Some great illustrations of scenes from season 2, such as the image below. I ended up using this one for my wallpaper.

3. The Office season premiere – Not outright hilarious, but it did have several funny moments. Amy Ryan is a welcome addition to the cast, and I was glad to see Ryan get his comeuppance and hilariously return as a temp. And zomg PB&J got engaged! So pumped that it’s back on, and I think its off to a much stronger start than last season. Too bad there is still a month until 30 Rock.

4. TV on the Radio – Dear Science, (link) – Strong follow up to Return to Cookie Mountain and right now, probably my frontrunner for my album of the year. Great review from Pitchfork here

5. Dexter season 3 premieres this Sunday!
