If I could go back in time, I’d change the gun laws. Maybe police only. Maybe no one only. Who knows—I’m not going to dwell on that because it won’t happen.
What I think we can all do to prevent these types of tragedies is just talk to people. Say hi to your neighbor. Show an interest if someone…
I agree we should reach out to people in need, but I think banning assault rifles is also important. I am a supporter of second amendment rights, but I do not believe all gun control infringes on those rights. Stockpiling weapons, BUYING ASSAULT RIFLES - those are warning signs. Why would a civilian ever, EVER need to own even one assault rifle? People kill people, but they often use guns to do it, and without that semi-automatic weapon Holmes would have killed fewer people.
My belief on all acting categories is that if you have been oft-nominated for a show and not won, you are not going to win late in the series run, period. I know this was a good year for CH, and she could be the exception to the rule, but I doubt it. When I said special circumstances, I meant all the other nominees being disqualified for performance-enhancing acting drugs. There are exceptions, but I do not think Christina Hendricks will win, tho that this is only her 3rd nom is in her favor.
Well I’m less basing her chances on anyone’s actual performance and more that everyone is clearly enraptured by all things “The Other Woman” and the *shocking* choice her character makes. As far as writing I think this was a very weak season for Mad Men. Mad Men and Modern Family.. two aging shows that received way too much love in the noms this year.
Also, did anyone else notice that the Downton episode that got nominated a bunch of times is the one where Matthew CAN MAGICALLY WALK AGAIN? and the STUPID JANE KISS and THE STUPID ELOPEMENT? Really? Really? Why not just give the award to the oedipal episode of Boardwalk?
I was going to watch the Breaking Bad premier tonight with Alex and Kathy.
And I was really excited, especially since I don’t think Alex and I have ever watched a BB ep together. But then I got in my car and decided that I might not survive the drive since I couldn’t really see the road due to the rain. So now I’m at home with no one else who appreciates Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul. When I came back in the house my Mom asked if I wanted her to watch it with me. “No, you just wouldn’t understand!”
That was probably a bit dramatic of me, but I stand by the sentiment. Breaking Bad has put its fans through an emotional wringer for the past 4 seasons, and someone who hasn’t experienced that really isn’t going to appreciate whatever Vince Gilligan has prepared for us.
“A few years ago, during a wild and committed period of exercise, I happened to be sent a tape of the movie Chicago, and I made the mistake of confusing it with an exercise video. It was, without question, the greatest exercise video I have ever worked out to. I could lift weights forever while watching it. For the first time in my exercising life, I was never bored. I could be Catherine Zeta Jones, and then I could be Renée Zellweger. I pranced around the apartment waving my five-pound weights here and there singing “All That Jazz.” I have never been happier exercising.”—Nora Ephron, “On Maintenance” - I Feel Bad About My Neck (via muppet-madison)
