unreconstructed fangirl

Here’s what I hate: people making fun of girls and women for their far-off dream lovers, and women and girls feeling ashamed of having them. The hell with that. This blog is about obsessions indulged and an experience that we all have at some time or another in our lives: that of being in love with a creature of pure imagination.

My pleasures are not guilty, and "fangirling" doesn't have to be stupid. But, if it is?
I'm totally ok with that, too.

While it was uplifting, at times, during season five to see Don do good, it is so much more reassuring to witness the great anti-heroes of TV degrade themselves, betray their own promises, and plunge deeper into the inferno. What a sense of kinship it fosters, to have the horrors and fuck-ups of one’s own life beamed back through your television. Like Ray Bradbury wrote in the opening lines of Fahrenheit 451, it is a “special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed.”
Full review on New Republic, footnotes and thrilling marginalia to come! 

This was a good read, but for my money, this was the sentence that hit it out of the park:

It’s not just that Jon Hamm looks so good doing bad; rather, it’s transfixing to watch him sway between oblivion and existence.

Exactly.
