Life Is Change

There are people out there, who buy things.
People like you and me.
And something happened,
something terrible.
And the way that they saw themselves...is gone.
And nobody understands that. But you do.
And that's very valuable.

"I am not big on giving the audience what they want but I am big on giving Roger and Joan what they want, if they can get close to it." Matthew Weiner

"[Getting rid of Sterling Cooper] was very scary but I knew in my heart it was what I had to do. I have to believe that if Don is as good as he says he is, there’s no way he’s going to go through the ’60s working at a firm like Sterling Cooper. It’s got to be something different… Life is change." Matthew Weiner

Quotes of Matthew Weiner discussing MAD MEN season three from this week's Televisionary interview, as pulled by SlashFilm. Roger/Joan images via Fuck Yeah Red! All the other millions of reviews and interviews and everything you need to try to force your way through the next 8-12 month hiatus are over at Basket of Kisses, per usual. Le Sigh.

This is just wonderfully put together!

Thanks RL! Very nice of you to visit. I was very inspired by that new Joan Holloway tumblr blog I discovered...and by the pulls Slashfilm listed. I have actually been saving the full interview to read later after I do some rewatching and percolating. But it's lovely to hear him say this stuff about my favorite characters (other than Peggy, natch).

That bottom image of them stuffed into that hotel room...it just makes my heart sing!

Yeah--I don't get out much. I've stopped reading all the blogs, entertainment/Mad Men related or otherwise, including my sister's, and I haven't kept up with my personal blog. Thinks have been a little hectic in Robertaworld.

I have watched the finale four times so far. I can't get enough of it, though I'm heartbroken over some of the losses.
