To me,

Let me ask you a question. Does it really feel outstanding to be mediocre?  Like you have to have an opinion or a favorite TV show just because everyone else does. Is it that lovely to be a part of the herd? What if you step on the other side?

Oh! Don’t judge me. I’m just as tired as someone looking for something creative to keep me hooked online. I don’t need socializing; I can very well do that when I’m not looking for a creative rush. It just hit me our virtual space lacks creativity. We are a bunch of horses running in the same carved street over and over and over again. For a change I want to be a Unicorn.

Okay, I know you’ll probably think of something or a website where you get to decorate a blank space with some quote you overheard in a movie? Or something your favorite character on your favorite TV show said in the season finale. Trust me that level of interesting is passé. And also quoting Rumi and Ernest Hemingway, well good for them they are heartily remembered but what about you?

I am looking for a self expressing platform where I get to be me. Blog? Twitter? Facebook? Trust me these places are too crowded to lend a fresh perspective. Once in a while you might, I don’t deny that but well really like always? I hardly doubt.

So as cheesy as it might sound I want to be my own Rumi. I want to creatively paint a wall full of my quotes and god knows why I want to sell it too. I know a lot of people speak the same words, and infact hey are far more talented than I am.

With this thought imagine a virtual space where you can paint your own words or something meaningful your best friend or your mother said and make it into a piece of art. That’s what I’m really talking about. Kind of refreshing and new to even think of. I bet you’d feel too much to ask for, but is it too much to stand out from the crowd.

Too early for me to think about standing out? I don’t think so. I don’t want to crawl where the rest of the planet is brisk walking. Clearly I don’t want to stay back. I want to be creatively empowered and French kiss that kind of feeling right in the face. So Humans, I know you want to express, design and play with words and show off your love for yourself. And I’m waiting for that moment to strike me too.

I want to sit one day painting my own posters and inspiring someone else somewhere and vice versa. Well I can sincerely hope that kind of virtual space hits real soon. Till then we can all write letters to our future self like this one and read it some time when you are looking for something.

P.S.  Can you really wait, to make that poster yours?

From,

Me (Of course)

10 Little-Known Interesting Facts About Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad, one of the highest-rated television shows of all time, left an indelible mark in the minds of all its fans. God knows we all cried like babies when it ended on 29th September this year. Here is a list of fascinating and not-so-well-known facts about everyone’s favourite show!

1)     Walter White’s ‘tighty-whities’ sold for nearly $10,000! 1) Walter White’s ‘tighty-whities’ sold for nearly $10,000
In the pilot episode of Breaking Bad, Walter White spends a good chunk of screen time in his tight white briefs. This pair of underwear was displayed at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City in a Breaking Bad exhibit for around a month after the show ended. After this, it was bought by a fan through an auction for $9900.

Fun fact (does this fact within a fact mean factception?): Bryan Cranston, the actor who portrayed Walt, purposely chose this type of underwear because he wanted Walt to “wear the most pathetic thing possible”.
2)     Tio Salamanca was originally supposed to be the main villain of the show. 2) Tio Salamanca was originally supposed to be the main villain of the show
Hector “Tio” Salamanca, Tuco Salamanca’s wheelchair-ridden baddie of an uncle, was originally going to be the prime antagonist of Breaking Bad from the third season onwards. However, when the writers saw the chemistry between the characters of Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring) and Bryan Cranston (Walter White), they decided on Gus’ character instead.

3)     There is a hidden parallel between Gus and Walt’s stories of vengeance. 3) There is a hidden parallel between Gus and Walt’s stories of vengeance
They both have dear ones killed ruthlessly in front of their own eyes. After this they bide their time and ultimately get revenge. In Gus’ case, the dear one is his partner Max, and the murder Don Eladio. In Walt’s, the dear one is his brother-in-law Hank, and the murderer is Jack Welker.

The uncannything about this parallel is this:thetwo exact moments where Gus and Walt are pushed down their respective paths to vengeance, were filmed identically. The similarity between the two shots can be seen in the picture above.
4)     The pizza landed on the roof in a single take. 4) The pizza landed on the roof in a single take
In season 3 episode 2, there was an iconic scene where Walt is walking away from the door of his house, and in frustration he throws the pepperoni pizza in his hands into the air and it lands cleanly on the roof. Believe it or not, this scene was shot in one take!

5)     Breaking Bad took help from The Walking Dead’s make-up artists for Gus Fring’s death scene. 5) Breaking Bad took help from The Walking Dead’s make-up artists for Gus Fring’s death scene.
One of the most famous scenes in Breaking Bad is in the fourth season finale (aptly named Face Off), where Gus Fring steps out of the room after the explosion with half his face mutilated. The make-up used to create this effect was similar to that used for the walkers/zombies on The Walking Dead. Since The Walking Dead is an AMC show as well, their make-up artists had no qualms in lending a helping hand.

6)     After the show was picked up by AMC, a quota was set for number of F-words used. 6) After the show was picked up by AMC, a quota was set for number of F-words used
The first season was filmed before the show got picked up by the channel AMC, and therefore contains liberal use of the F-word. However, once it tied up with AMC, the creator (Vince Gilligan) set a limit of one F-bomb per season for each character.

If one closely followed the chemical process shown on Breaking Bad, they wouldn’t actually end up with methamphetamine. Also, in real life, meth could never actually be blue.

However, this has all been done on purpose. The real-life DEA advised the writers of Breaking Bad on what misrepresentations to make so that no viewer could use the show as a guide to make actual meth. And the blue meth is a fictional liberty taken in order to create a signature Heisenberg product, of course.
8)     Walt’s pants from the pilot episode reappear in the fifth season. 8) Walt’s pants from the pilot episode reappear in the fifth season.
Every Breaking Bad fan remembers that in the opening scene of season 1 episode 1, Walt’s pants are shown flying into the air and landing in the desert.
