I guess the most chilling thing about the portrayal of abuse in Breaking Bad is that it’s so realistic that most viewers DON’T EVEN REALIZE IT’S ABUSE, and partake in a lot of victim blaming, minimization, and romanticizing of the abuse.
“The writers and I went through a lot of permutations for the very ending moment of the story. And we went through the many months, probably we started talking about this a year or more in advance of us actually conceiving it and writing it. Do you actually see him expire, do you not? Do we go out in a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid kind of a moment? Is it suicide by cop? Is it this is it that? What we finally landed upon was the basic question of ‘what does Walt want? Where is his head really at in this given moment?’ And we said to ourselves, wouldn’t it be kind of poignant in a weird kind of ‘only Breaking Bad can pull it off’ kind of a way, that as precious as it were, to spend his last moments on earth with his his meth lab. His lab that he designed and brought to fruition.” - Vince Gilligan
“The lab equipment became like a talisman. He’s touching, he’s remembering, he remembers his tutelage of Jesse…this moment gave him just enough adrenaline to last, to be alive for an extra couple minutes. And put one final touch on your existence before you go.” - Bryan Cranston
Happy birthday, Heisenberg! (The real one, not Walter White.)
Werner Heisenberg, who won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1932, is best known for his Uncertainty Principle, which states that you cannot know both the location and the momentum of particles. The more certain you are of one, the less certain you are of the other.
In this quote, he is talking about his breakthrough in mathematically reformulating the atomic theory giving birth to quantum mechanics. “The night of Heligoland.” Here’s the rest of the quote:
“The energy principle had held for all the terms, and I could no longer doubt the mathematical consistency and coherence of the kind of quantum mechanics to which my calculations pointed. At first, I was deeply alarmed. I had the feeling that, through the surface of atomic phenomena, I was looking at a strangely beautiful interior, and felt almost giddy at the thought that I now had to probe this wealth of mathematical structures nature had so generously spread out before me.”
Black women, stop acting like y'all ain’t use to nothin. Lupita is the 7th African American female to win an Oscar. It’s all black fists and afros but soon as a sista gets a foot in Hollywood y'all proud as fuck.
I know you want the same attention the white woman is getting, even if it’s cast as the presidents side hoe. If that was a black president fucking his side white hoe y'all would have that show canceled.
