Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Breaking Bad, MTV VMAs, and Best Songs of the Millennium
Hey, man. You got a cigarette I can bum? This week on the pod, Andy and I discussed Breaking Bad — the ricin, the weed, the Landry, the chess moves, the heartbreak, and the Skyler White problem.
Then we talked about the Miley Cyrus problem. Come on, tell me you weren’t dying to hear two white guys break down the complicated issues of gender and race that were raised by Miley’s risqué performance at the VMAs. Thank us later. We also chatted about Drake’s shirts and whether anyone, Robin Thicke or not, should be allowed to wear vertical stripes on television.
We wrapped things up with a lighthearted, not at all aggrieved discussion of the Best Songs of the Millennium bracket, currently playing out on the Grantland dot com. Some of our jams made the final bracket, many did not. You can find Andy’s top 25 of the millennium here and his 26-50 here. You can find mine here. Smoke ’em if you got ’em.
