I just found out that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul dress up as other Breaking Bad characters for season wrap parties and Halloween.
This is amazing
I was going to say “this is amazing”, buuuut….
just because a television show doesn’t actively address a specific issue doesn’t mean they’re actively avoiding it either. you know what happens when you try to stuff every possible social debate under the sun into one show?
you get glee.
that’s what happens.

This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.

Just too adorable.
This Monday, Khaled Hosseini is coming to a local book store in Fairhope, AL, for a book signing. Admittedly, I had never read his books The Kite Runner, Thousand Splendid Suns, and most recently, And the Mountains Echoed. Well, what a great chance to get started. I began The Kite Runner last night and stayed up to gobble every single word. Being the spoilers enthusiast that I am, I decided to look up a summary on Wikipedia before I began. Did that affect the impact of the novel? Absolutely not. Having just finished, I am feeling so much right now. For Hassan and Sohrab, the incredible adversities they faced have left me astounded. For all the characters, I cannot describe in words how I do feel. It’s all a jumble of optimism and sadness. What I can say is that I cannot wait to read Hosseini’s other two novels and see him soon!
Shall we begin?
Everyone do the Neutron Cream Shake!
