|"And a Heisenberg in the Christmas tree!"|
But before I go away for a few weeks, let me say a heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who has read the posts, forwarded them along, commented, tweeted, +1d, and encouraged us. Writing a book is an intense and often lonely job, even with two of us doing it. Thank you for reminding us to take time to go look at the sunset, eat something that we didn't have to unwrap, and your kind, kind words. The book isn't quite done yet, but it's soclose! Of course, we'll be posting more about publication events and where to find it (and us!) after the New Year. And the blog will continue - I'll still be posting about movies and TV here throughout the holidays; I'm just taking a Breaking Bad break from the Wednesday posts until the start of the New Year.
As the year winds down on the calendar, it's amazing to look back on where Vince Gilligan & Co. have taken us. Walt's saga is over, but the lessons he taught us live on. Many people have found unexpected wisdom and humor in Breaking Bad - here are a few of the resulting articles. (Please note that I accept no responsibility for anything that happens as a result of following the guidelines in any of these. I'm just the messenger.)
- Online relationship advice a la Heisenberg (or how to avoid becoming "The One Who Knocks")
- Walter White's journey as a model for entrepreneurs (or why picking the right business partner really, really matters!)
- Public relations lessons that can be learned from Breaking Bad (or why Tuco would be a lousy blogger)
- Stuck on a baby name? Try Breaking Bad for inspiration! (or why "Ding!Ding!Ding!" is still better than anything cribbed from Twilight)
Of course, Breaking Bad has an official Christmas gift shop for all of your holiday needs. (Guess it really will be a "blue Christmas"!) Really - everything from an A1A air freshener to cuff links to some Los Pollos lunch bags can be yours! Click here and happy shopping!
