New Layout: Uncorked!

Hey there, reader(s)!

I’ve been working on a new design layout, and I’ve finally got most of the components the way they looked in my mind! So, without further ado — I present you with the new and improved Lena’s Beat!

Feel free to look & click around, and tell me what you think!

The icons on the right will lead you to the following categories:

Viewpoints: posts about pop culture, current events, politics, school, psychology, updates on my life, travel, health tips, and other goodies.

Eats: posts about food, of course! I mostly cook from vegetarian recipes, with some meatier ones featuring ground turkey, grilled chicken, and salmon.

Movies: posts about movies I’ve seen, and my recommendations, typically in the genres of drama, comedy, thriller, gay & lesbian, indie, romantic comedy, and whatever else Netflix recommends (i.e. “Critically acclaimed cerebral dramas with a strong female lead”).

TV: posts about the plethora of shows I love (up to and including  Queer as Folk, Dexter, 24, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Glee, Parenthood, Alias, Beverly Hills, 90210, Buffy, Californication, Frasier, Roseanne, and more!)

Photos: Stay tuned for posts featuring some of the photos I’ve taken! As a full-time student and part-time employee, this growing hobby often takes a backseat right now, but when I do get to use my lovely D-SLR, it’s a happy day for me, and I look forward to sharing it with you!

If this is your first visit and you like what you see, please do subscribe and I’ll do the same for you!

Thanks, and enjoy!

This is ‘Mad’ness

Today, Mad Men fans shed a collective tear for the delay of Season 5. The network released the following statement about the show…

“While we are getting a later start than in years past due to ongoing, key non-cast negotiations, Mad Men will be back for a fifth season in early 2012.”

The tears are mitigated by the fact that at least there will be a season 5 (er, well depending on who you ask; see below), but for such an immensely popular show at the prime of its life (with riveting plotlines, character development, and intrigue), it’s a mystery why the Powers That Be have decided to give it a mid-life crisis.

Let’s hope it won’t be its last season when it returns, like with the prolonged hiatus of The Sopranos.

Signing off,

A bitter yet hopeful Mad Men fan who misses Donny Don.
