Well, it's official. We here at Old Tom Foolery are hooked on the new HBO series How To Make It In America, which, like Entourage, lists Marky Mark Wahlberg as its executive producer.
As a human being, Wahlberg seems like a cocky meathead incapable of anything but lifting weights and modeling underpants. But as a producer, Sweet Jeebus does he have a knack for putting his money behind some damn good shows.
How To Make It In America is a fresh, stylish series about two aspiring entrepreneurs trying to start their own denim brand in New York City. It's impossible not to root for these guys. Their fierce independent spirit reminds us exactly why we started our own business--because it's an adventure. It's all about following your folly (even when you have no idea what you're doing), and trying to enjoy the roller coaster ride along the way.
The show also happens to have a contagiously awesome, retro-sounding theme song by Aloe Blacc, which you can download for free here.
Crank it up and just try not to move your pelvis. We dare you.
