breaking bad

Yay Mr White! Yay science!

Aaron got the Emmy! Aaron and Bryan - Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor last night. Get down! Third year in a row for beautiful Bryan. Aaron's first time.

And Mad Men the well deserved best drama series.

I literally have no idea what people in the US think about the Emmys, it's not really part of my culture, perhaps they think it's cheesy, but I am so happy because this means the whole high risk project is vindicated and celebrated, and much more secure in the long term. And also because I am sure this means that other people as well as me get what is going on. Significant people with influence, which is so nice having been a fan so long of dramas that are overlooked and under-compensated. Sometimes I feel like just me and a few fans understand modern culture :-)

Literally I got out of bed this morning and I had to go Google if Aaron had got it.

I also want to say that we are living in a golden age. It's like being in London in 1599 and being able to go the theatre. It's like waiting for Lyrical Ballads to arrive by coach. Great stuff.
Mad Man

"Award or no award, you're still Don Draper."

Watching Mad Men 4.06 right now. OMG they must have known this episode would go out on Emmy night.

Don: 'Just because I got nominated doesn't mean I'll win an award.'
Roger: 'There's about fifty awards, at about ten minutes apiece that's... holy crap.'

It's OK I have been out in the sunshine, and I'll go back out there in a few minutes.
