  1. I must admit I loved the Soprano's. I grew up in the region where they filmed. Some scenes include locations I recognize. Moreover I have a strong suspicion kids with whom I grew up could easily have become gangsters. In fact upon watching the very first show my stomach tightened and I had an uneasy feeling as if kids with whom I grew up were pointing a gun to my head; the simple "friendly gesture" of one of the gang members but utterly frightening to all of the rest of us. Today, upon learning of some little bit of news I was feeling aggravated. In my perspective this is a classic Soprano's scene on aggravation...and to top it off ....its all about local coffee shops!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAYq9jSUKt4
  2. I'm almost finished with season three, and so I'm going to try to avoid spoilers for now. That being said: I'm not a huge TV fan. I watch some shows, but not a lot, and very few get me emotionally invested in them. But by damn, am I invested in this show now. I've never loved and/or hated so many characters so strongly on a show, I think. The last show I was this wrapped up in was House of Cards, and there were characters there that made me just kind of go "meh, whatevs, yo" as to their fate. On GoT, however, I have strong opinions on each character. And man, does Jon Snow suck.
  3. The always delightful John Oliver on Johnny's Half Shell at 4:14 - .. Further proof that Washington occasionally gives DC's dining scene a bad name.
  4. I'm writing this down primarily so I remember it in the future. It's a fine documentary, worth watching if you want to see a minimally manipulated interview with a man who claims to have killed over one-hundred people - not for sexual thrills, not for kicks, not for drugs, but for money: he was a paid hit-man. an independent contractor if you will. The documentary was culled together from seventeen hours of interview tapes with Richard Kuklinski in his maximum-security prison, and is elegant in its use of light touch, and for letting Kuklinski do most of the talking. It's not creepy, it's not scary, and it's not as chilling as you may think - it's mainly informative. Note that this is from 1992, and there is a second documentary from 2001, and a third from 2003, which are also by HBO (and apparently available on one DVD), but I would think the second two are superfluous and unnecessary. My criteria for selecting this were pretty basic: I wanted to see a documentary, I wanted to learn something I had no previous knowledge of, and I wanted it to be less than one-hour long. This fit the bill. I saw my version on Amazon Prime for free, but it appears to also publicly available on YouTube for free. I don't think you will be traumatized from watching this - it's not like that. But, obviously, viewer discretion is advised, and you know in advance what the subject material is, so do use your judgment. If you're sick-and-tired of all the needless violence in this world, give it a pass - but keep in mind there's *plenty* out there that's gratuitous and much, much more violent and gory (there is no violence or gore in this). You know what you have, so choose wisely. I'm glad I watched it, but I would rate it as good, not great. I would be very interested to hear other peoples' opinions, in agreement or otherwise.
