Bringing Home the Freshest Kill

TV shows.

With the exception of Seinfeld and Twin Peaks — where I was an early adopter — I’m usually late to the party. With Breaking Bad, I’m really late. I only started watching it a few nights ago.

But I’m really liking what I’ve seen so far.

The series’ use of 35 MM film does a good job of capturing the oddities and uniqueness of Albuquerque, which remains the strangest city in which I’ve ever lived. (For a stellar analysis of that town, check out Albuquerque: A City at the End of the World by V.B. Price.)

Also: I had no idea Bryan Cranston possessed such range as an actor. I’m familiar with him from Seinfeld and Malcom in the Middle — so I knew that he had comedic chops — but I didn’t realize his skill set went way way beyond situation comedies.

So I’m pretty hooked. And apparently I have very little time to get caught up on plot points and character development because the series finale is in August.

On Sunday, Jackie and I took a short trip to Twin Peaks, a.k.a. North Bend, WA and Snoqualmie, WA. Below are some pics (courtesy of Jackie, except the one I took of her, which is courtesy of me).

RIALTO, CA – JUNE 17: The pool where Rodney King was found dead at the bottom is seen on June 17, 2012 in Rialto, California. King, whose video beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 sparked riots after the acquittal of the four officers involved, was found dead at the age of 47 from an apparent drowning in his swimming pool.

  • “By 2052, 40 years from now, a new generation of aircraft could immerse passengers in panoramic views of the clouds. In their imagining of future flight, designers have envisioned fitness centers, theaters, even swimming pools aboard planes. Airbus suggests that by 2050, the biggest planes might resemble cruise ships, with swimming pools, virtual golf, and casinos. For working passengers, the plane will incorporate video and data links to the outside world.”

Thirty-four seconds is all I need for a quick fix. Dig Dr. Jacoby’s cape. The man could dress.
