Goodbye, Breaking Bad
On Sunday, we all said farewell to what is widely referred to as the best show on TV, "Breaking Bad." Yes, it's been almost a week, but we're still not over it, especially given that many fans said "Breaking Bad" gave the perfect finale. Regardless of how you felt about it, "Breaking Bad" will likely be one of those shows, like "The Wire" or "Sopranos," that is talked about long after it's over. To ease your woes, check out the Jimmy Fallon clip at left parodying the show and know this: one, now we can marathon the entire series as frequently as we want; and two, AMC announced a spin-off show, Better Call Saul.
I Quit (But Not Before This Video Of Me Doing So Goes Viral)
We've all probably had that one job that we hated so much we dreamed of quitting in some kind of self-gratifying, over-the-top, smug way. How good would it feel to have the satisfaction of telling your boss how much they sucked, followed by a big ol' "I QUIT!"? You shouldn't actually do that, of course, because it's not professional, you shouldn't burn bridges, blah blah blah. This week, however, we got to live vicariously through Marina Shifrin, who made a dance video announcing to her boss that she was quitting her job. Let the parodies begin!
While we don't typically discuss politics on the blog, it would be difficult to ignore the fact that this week, the U.S. government completely shut down. Rather than talk about what that means, we'll just let you enjoy this video by Stephen Colbert. Backstory: several couples who were planning to wed this week at D.C. monuments had to cancel their plans, due to the shutdown. Colbert invited engaged couple Mike Cassesso and MaiLien Le to get married on his show, "The Colbert Report." Chaos, in the form of a hilarious wedding, ensues.
