Oh, were they in NYC? I don't know. I was just being an idiot.

And admitting to seeing Bon Jovi in Belgium isn't any worse than admitting to seeing Bon Jovi in NY. Luckily, I was so f'd up I have no memories of the event, just a ticket a stub and a freind that "sorta" remembers. Thank God for drugs, man.

That's fine. I won't judge you...less than 7 anyway. Just making the effort gets you a 7. But that doesn't mean you can't try for a 10. GO FOR IT!

that's right
thanks


Vito is intiminating Finn


Finn knows if he says anything Finn will whack him


Vito is using this shared secret as a way to manipulate and control Finn

most likely

Vito checked in and checked out

being in the Mafia and gay (openly) is not possible


Vito either

1. killed himself
2. went witness protection
or
3. got way out of town, that is out of the country

1 or 2 is what happened.


He knows the other hoods will out him.

You may remember that there was an episode where Junior had a girlfriend
and she blabbed that he went down on her

Junior about lost it
because that would have labeled him a pussy.

So there really is no way for a man to be gay in this group.

it took me a bit to get into it -- they started out playing "one wild night," which was some crappy song that was popular in Belgium, and then they played "it's my life" which isn't disagreeable.

then Jon said something like, "let's really get it started," at which point there was a big dramatic pause, and then at an earsplitting decible, the following words blasted out the PA and into the very souls of the 50,000 sweaty Belgians (and me and the English chicks):

SHOT THROUGH THE HEART
AND YOU'RE TO BLAME!
DARLING,
YOU GIVE LOVE
A BAD NAME

after about 15 seconds, i started to laugh. uncontrollably. tears were streaming down my cheeks. i remembered sitting on the bus in 2nd grade with my A-Team lunchbox and massive cassette player complete with foam earphones listening to a cassette that the kid across the street had made for me from his older brother's album.

i thought it was "bad," at the time, so i remember keeping the volume low, so that the "bad" sounds wouldn't reach the ears of any suspecting parents or teachers.

(and i had no idea just what was going on at the beginning of "Social Disease" ... i think my next door neighbor said, "they're screwing," and i couldn't figure out what cabinet or shelving would make such a noise ... but then i was a kid who used to walk around singing "like a version, hey! touched for the very first time")

oh, the concert. yeah, it took me most of the rest of the song to stop laughing, and then, being rather ballsy, they brought out "living on a prayer." 4th song of the set. imagine U2 playing "streets" 4th song into the set.

good for them.

the fourth encore was "i'll be there for you" and we, the audience, were truly there for each other, hands aloft, some of them clasped, faces to the dreary northern european skies and it had just started pissing rain (it was, like, freaking july and barely 60 degrees out) and we sang our hearts out.

and i started to laugh. again.

I had a similar experience at a bad outdoor concert in the rain and mud in Copenhagen. I can't even remember who it was... David Sanborn maybe? Or some similar jazzy guy. It was happening, it was free, I was there, so wtf. But then somebody passed me a joint and suddenly it may as well have been Miles Davis.

I fell asleep during the Sopranos both Sunday and last night. You'd think that getting up and dancing during the opening song (which I do religiously) would at least guarantee that I stay awake for the show. I'll try again tonight.

great, great episode. aside from the first episode, this was the best one yet.

more tomorrow, but it was the Sopranos at it's best -- the hour unfolded slowly but relentlessly and what seems to be simple turns out to be complex, evidenced in the Melfi scene when Tony talks about how guys get a "pass" when they are in jail, and then when Meadow and Finn had their argument at the end.

i hope it works out for Vito, and i was thrilled that Tony decided not to kill him, though it makes me wonder if this might not be read as part of the "feminization" of Tony Soprano, like Johnny Sack crying at his daughter's wedding, and that Vito might only be safe for only so long. still, as it stands, this crew desperately needs Tony; thuggish and evil as he is, he's still the smartest, most reflective, most practical man in the room (not that there's particularly stiff competition).

and hasn't Christopher grown in stature and menace and leadership abilities.
