Robert Plant: Rainbow
I’ve heard this new song from Robert Plant a few times in the past few days and I’m so into it.
Gunn’s performance was not that of an action heroine or a television genius, and it was not meant to be. Skyler carries the weight of Walt’s actions. Plenty of people hated her for it, Walt sometimes included. But Gunn’s performance pushed both Walt and the people who wanted to see him as a hero to increasingly contrived and ludicrous justifications for treating Skyler like she was a worse person than Walt.
Gunn’s drawn face in the last two seasons of “Breaking Bad” might not have brought about the end of the anti-hero era in television. But Gunn’s performance marked the end of a time when the creators of such shows could get away with writing anti-heroes’ wives as flat, cartoonish characters, or when audiences could get away with worshiping difficult men without encountering strong opposition.
Of all the Emmy’s Breaking Bad won the other day, I am most happy that Anna Gunn won.

Very proud of my psychic tweet.
I’m wearing Old Navy for the Emmy’s tonight. Thank you for asking.
Have you ever been so consumed with stress that almost everything in your life just seems to take a back seat to this physical and emotional villain?
I’ve wanted to write and I’ve sat down to write, but everything I want to write just gets all jumbled up with this moving stress. We still, with just a week to the end of the month, have not received a 100% ‘Yes’ that we have the apartment that I’ve been talking to the real estate agency for weeks about. I’ve tried being as nice as possible about this whole thing with them because it’s a family run business and I fear one false move and we’re out.
I’m thankful if this doesn’t work out in the next week, like I am hoping, we will have some place to live temporarily. We won’t be homeless - technically. That obviously takes a bit of the stress away, but just a bit.
I want this villain to be gone, to get settled in a new place, and get back to writing. I have a book to finish.
