Walter White Wednesday 112

This past weekend, Ensley and I appeared at a book signing for Wanna Cook? at a nearby Books-A-Million. It was a fun event, and they're talking about having us back around the holiday season, although I'm slightly conflicted about that - Wanna Cook? is a guide to Breaking Bad, which just doesn't much seem like a heartwarming holiday show for the whole family. But hey - different strokes, right?

By the way, Ensley wrote a fantastic post about the book signing and the people-watching that went with it over at his blog - click here to go there!

We'll be making another appearance in a couple of weeks in the Triad area of North Carolina - catch our act at the Winston-Salem location of Barnes & Noble on August 9 beginning at 3 pm as part of their "Get Pop Cultured" events. Details are in the link over on the left - come on out and say "hi!" to us!  We'd love to see you!

In other Breaking Bad related news, there are these two items for your consideration:

Bryan Cranston recently played President Lyndon B. Johnson on Broadway in the play All the Way, a role for which he received the Tony Award. The play also won Best Play and I hated that I couldn't get to NYC to see it. Never fear! A television version is being prepared for broadcast on HBO next year with Cranston reprising his role. He will also serve as an executive producer for the show, along with Steven Spielberg and two others. The playwright, Robert Schenkkan, will take charge of the adaptation.

Also, Disney is working on a live-action version of Kipling's The Jungle Book, which I'm also excited about. The cartoon version was always a favorite of mine. What's that have to do with Breaking Bad, you ask?  Good question. Let me just say this, and then you can check out this link.  Gus Fring.  Wolf.  Fine, go click the link and then marvel.
