Brett Martin interviewed Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan for GQ’s Men of the Year edition:
Martin: I think everybody knew the ending would be a big deal, but it really turned into as big and feverish a phenomenon as I can remember. What happened?
Gilligan: Have you ever been sitting at your desk and you crumple up a piece of paper and, without even looking, you just toss it over your shoulder and it goes straight into the wastebasket? You didn’t think about it. You didn’t stress about it. You just did it. And now that you’re thinking about it, you could never do it again in a million years, no matter how hard you tried. That’s what this was like. We worked our butts off, but everybody works their butts off in TV. We tried to make the best show it was humanly possible to make, but you know, the guys on According to Jim did the same thing. As to why this thing hit…I could make up some stream of nonsense, but honestly…I wish I could explain it, because then I might have a fighting chance on TV in the future. The truth is, I just have to be satisfied that it happened at all.

Microsoft’s anti-Google “Scroogled” campaign has quietly been attempting to convince consumers to avoid Google services for the past few months, but it’s back today with a vengeance. Microsoft has dedicated an entire section of its online store to selling anti-Google mugs, hats, t-shirts, and hoodies. The prices vary, but for $7.99 you can pick up a mug that advises you to “keep calm while we steal your data.” It’s a surprisingly brazen approach from Microsoft just in time for the holidays, and another direct and odd attack on Google.
Love this mug.
Love that it’s sold by Microsoft even more.Source: theverge.com
Always hearing from people how there’s apparently “nothing to watch” on Netflix. I’m sure not many have seen all these films.

Remember importing the Korean DVD of the original 10 years ago (yeah I’ve been a film geek for awhile) and I’m actually looking forward to a Hollywood remake for once. I’ll be interested in what Spike Lee has done with this. Can’t believe Spielberg was going to at one point direct this!
Released December 6th in the UK.Source: fuckyeahmovieposters
“Is Netflix’s Full Season Release Strategy a Smart Business Model?”
Do you guys binge watch or view weekly? I always binge watch, but if I was running a company like Netflix, I’d personally stagger the release of episodes. Especially if I spent a cool $100 million making them.
Think I’ll wait until 2nd gen for some kinks to be ironed out and new features added. Will Apple enter into this market next though?
15 year standby time for an emergency mobile phone off one AA battery. Excellent idea. Where will you keep yours?
