Short Post and a Song #12: MY EMOTIONS

I'm about a season behind in Breaking Bad. I know it's an amazing show with wonderful writing and fantastic acting. It has hands down the best pilot I have ever seen.

But watching such a relentlessly dark show always seems to reduce me to this:


"Hotel Song" by Regina Spektor

"Hotel Song" is used extremely well in the first few minutes of Jennifer Westfeldt's lovely film Friends With Kids. This scene provides the viewers' only glimpse into what life was like for this group of friends before any of them had children. The light, fun tune manages to communicate so much about how breezy life can be until babies turn your friends into frustrated, sleep-deprived asshats.
