Day 300: I altered it myself
Day 300: I altered it myself
Here's a look at the t-shirt I was wearing yesterday that I didn't like so I decided to do something crazy to it. I removed the collar and hems off the bottom and the sleeves. I tried to do some free motion embroidery on it, but my old dinosaur had a nervous breakdown and I couldn't do what I wanted to, sigh. I did get some done before I broke 4 needles and the thread kept breaking and the machine decided to stop working properly. I did take in the sides so it wasn't quite so huge on me and I removed the collar that made me feel like I was wearing some tacky uniform shirt. I used my other sewing machine and managed to whip up a crazy pair of hippie shorts using bits and pieces of odd fabric I had lying around. These were pants that were too short for me (can't remember how I came to have them, maybe someone gave them to me) and I needed a pair of shorts and didn't have anything that would go with the brown, so I added lots more colours to it.

108 - Just Keep Sewing
I think you can tell from my last couple pictures where I have spent my time lately ;) I have a lot of commissions this month and most of my creativity and free time is going to that. It's going to be a struggle to keep up with Flickr in January, but hopefully I can do it! If this looks funny to you, it's because it's my serger, not my sewing machine. I also think it's hilarious that the thead isn't even looped into the lowest clasp; I intentionally unlooped it because needle is getting dull and the loop creates enough tension to continually break the thread as I stitch. If I unloop it, it sews fine with a dull needle (though a little messy) and it will buy me time to get to the store and get another needle. :D

Breaking Bad: The Complete Third Season
Winner of two 2010 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Bryan Cranston and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad: The Complete Third Season returns, hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "the best show on television." Even though his cancer's in remission, chemistry teacher-turned-meth maker Walter White (Cranston) still can't catch a break. his wife (Anna Gunn) has filed for divorce, his DEA agent brother-in-law (Dean Norris) is out to bust him and a Mexican cartel just wants him dead. But with his family's future still at stake Walt cooks up a deal that will make him a fortune, a scheme with a terrible price. Executive produced by Vince Gilligan and Mark Johnson.

Here's how things are going for Walter White, the central character in Breaking Bad, as this outstanding cable series reaches its third season. By the end of the fourth episode, less than a third of the way through the year, Walt (played by Bryan Cranston, who won three straight Emmys for this role) has been arrested and put in jail twice; has been served with divorce papers by his wife, to whom he has finally confessed that he's a crystal methamphetamine manufacturer; has had a serious falling out with his young partner in crime; and is the subject of a manhunt by two silent but very deadly members of a Mexican drug cartel. And it gets a lot worse. Of course, Walt is hardly the only character who's afflicted, conflicted, and "breaking bad." Wife Skyler (Anna Gunn) is in the excruciating position of knowing that she could blow the whistle on Walt and get him out of her and their children's lives once and for all, while also realizing what that would do to her family. Hank (Dean Norris), the DEA agent who's married to Skyler's sister, becomes obsessed with figuring out who's putting "blue meth" on the streets of Albuquerque, little knowing that it's his own brother-in-law and leading to near-tragic consequences. And partner Jesse (Aaron Paul, another Emmy winner) is haunted by the fact that it was his drugs that killed his girlfriend, whose distraught father may have caused a hideously destructive plane collision over the city when he returned to his air traffic controller job too soon.
All of this is presented in an artful brew of black humor and frequently violent drama, with excellent acting, dialogue, and storytelling (the 10th episode, "The Fly," takes place entirely in Walt and Jesse's fancy new meth lab), and innovative film techniques (the opening scenes in episode one, and several thereafter, are shot with a beautiful, almost sepia-toned look). But it's Walt, portrayed so memorably by Cranston, who remains the main draw, as this brilliant but self-destructive, angry man, prone to making calamitous decisions, gradually realizes that he is truly becoming Heisenberg, his criminal alter ego, and is in way over his head--and may very well be losing his mind in the process. One can only wonder how much lower creator Vince Gilligan and his team will take him in season four.
The bonus features are many and varied, with numerous offerings on all four discs. Audio commentary, available on the nine episodes, is provided by Gilligan, Cranston, Paul, and other actors and members of the team. Elsewhere, a variety of short but entertaining featurettes focus on behind-the-scenes details of individual shots (Walt deftly tossing a pizza on to the roof of his house), scenes (Walt impetuously torching a huge pile of cash, then trying to douse the blaze in his swimming pool), props (Walt’s custom-painted Pontiac Aztek), characters (an interview with the real-life brothers who portray the two murderous Mexican cousins), or the show’s music. Other offerings include pod casts, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and a series of promotional pieces produced for AMC (which airs the show) under the banner of “Inside Breaking Bad,” in which members of the cast and crew discuss specific aspects of each episode (viewer beware, as these bits contain some spoilers). --Sam Graham
