Like a black storm rushes up from the sea, like the wind flattens the wheat, like ravenous wolves swooping down on a flock, like wolves who rip and rend flesh, like wolves who slake their thirst with blood, so the cast and crew of Breaking Bad took the Emmys in 2014.

Loving pop music, like having armpit hair, is not necessarily an important political statement in itself, but it IS a great way to divest yourself of shitty people.

Behold, you are free.
