Je croyais respirer le parfum de ton sang

Art manager, writer and nail artist in Brooklyn.

Still from season 6’s “A Tale of Two Cities” in which Stan and Ginsberg intently listen to the Democratic National Convention on the radio as Ginsberg eats a Hershey’s chocolate bar, the object that spurred Don’s emotional breakdown and admission of childhood trauma. Ginsberg is one of Don’s most prominent character foils in the office, as they are both “creatives” that grew up orphans and suffered unbearable traumas. Although Ginsberg shares all these things with Don, he is Don’s emotional antithesis. He is unbearably honest, empathetic, sensitive and emotive, while apathetic Don cynically jokes that the Democrats will only debate the Vietnam War at prime time. It is only right that in this scene, Ginsberg holds this “currency of affection”, carefully pushing down the chocolate bar’s foil with eat bite.
