Today, Jamie and I were sitting around watching the Breaking Bad marathon [Tangent: I know you guys are totally sick of this topic after my last post...so just suck it up, and deal with it.], and I keep telling him how much I love Mike's character, played by Emmy nominee Jonathan Banks. He's such a scary dude, but you root for him to no end. Whenever his chilling exterior melts and he does anything nice= it warms your heart all the more. However most of the time, he is just glaring and terrifying the shit out of you...kinda like this...
We kept discussing how everytime he pops up in something, he is ultra creepy and we can't imagine how he was in his earlier roles. This led us, naturally, to IMDB, where we made the grandest discovery of my week...and left me kissing the feet of the information superhighway gods. Jonathan Banks likely earned his SAG card on a 17 minute short film entitled Linda's Film on Menstruation.
Naturally, I immediately youtubed it and thank allah that it exists and I could watch this little gem in all it's glory, where the once terrifying Mike, who looks like a young cousin to Frank Stallone, learns that his girlfriend is now getting her period. It's as fantastic as one would think.
Because I couldn't keep this all to myself and because I need you to be left with this lasting image of Mike from Breaking Bad- watch this short film now. It's totally worth it. [Tangent: If only to hear the most awkward line ever uttered on film- "THAT MEANS BLOOD FALLING OUT OF MY UTERUS!"] BTW- This is 100% real.
