Previously on Mad Men Power Rankings: Don goes for a drive … Peggy inherits some art … Roger has a drink … Joan meets with the new boss … Betty reads a book … Pete breezes in … Meredith does her job. Don Draper (last week: 1) You were expecting Betty at the top. Maybe we were expecting Betty, until we typed Don Draper’s name up there just now, next to the no. 1. Sometimes the Power Rankings will surprise us like that. They see what they see, want what they want, go self-referential at the least opportune moment. that way lies madness, or, at minimum, a need to immediately lie down in a dark room with a washcloth over one’s eyes, waiting for the waves of bone-deep nausea to pass, and we don’t have the time for that right now. Hug your loved ones close, your less-loved ones closer. The Power Rankings will get around to the Betty situation, or they won’t. Right now they want Don.

" So down it comes, switched with a more regal portrait of Presley as a younger man, microphone in hand, dressed in a steel-blue prom tuxedo with a sky-high '70s collar to remind us who we're looking at. The Big E, the Hillbilly Sinatra, The King. Homme hangs the painting directly above a rack of custom electric guitars, his tools of choice as leader of the band Queens of the Stone Age, where he crafts an eccentric hard-rock roar of elegance and brutal swing. That happens less often these days, as Homme at 41 is a committed family man, with two little kids and a punk-rock wife (Brody Dalle, of The Distillers and Spinnerette) at home in the Hollywood Hills. Someone once called Homme the "Ginger Elvis," and it stuck. You can see the affection on Homme's face as he stands in his private recording studio in a quiet industrial corner of Burbank, taking in Presley's sainted image and the moment in time depicted in oils. "That to me is post-'68 comeback," Homme says, looking at the painting with a smile, "where he's feeling good, he's back on top, and he's just starting to dress funny.
