sopranos and porn

Now first things first, I haven’t been able to post that much recently which I explained in the previous post, but getting to this topic of discussion has been crucial.

Sopranos: Final episode ever. And my conclusion? I loved it. They couldn’t have ended it any other way. Best episode of the season, and here’s why. First off, the unforgettable whack on Phil Leotardo. Classic. First, just the plain old fact that he was whacked, second, the car rolling over his head. And second off comes the ending. Quintessential IMHO. You could really look at it any way you want to, and that is why I loved it, any of the theories brought up could be plausible and make sense. The two theories I feel an attachment to are the one where the scene is just ending at a random point, we leave Tony the same way we found him, living his life the way it needs to be lived. The paranoia, the suspicion of everyone. It could have just ended at that instant just because it had to end at some point. It could have been nothing grandiose, just mundane. The second theory, a rather more exciting one, is that Tony was shot as the man came out of the bathroom, and everything went black (Like the clip shown in the previous episode at the end, and the clip originating from the first episode of the second half of the season). Others could be that Tony was ratted out by Carlo because his son got out of the ecstasy selling charges, and because Patrick was not with Meadow going into the diner after the fact was made in a scene that Tony and Carmela were comfortable with Meadow and Patrick dating, we can’t really be sure, and that’s the great thing about it. It’s up to you to decide what you believe the ending is, and you can make it just. Wonderfully done. Perfect. Bravo.

Other stuff

I ❤ the new New Pornographers CD. Really though, who won’t?. Their sound is the same (if not better) than it has always been. The unpredictable arrangements spliced with blissful pop and soft voices and guitars. A.C. Newman completes another task and continues to grow bigger. Here’s some tracks I recommend you listen to.

MP3

The New Pornographers- Mutiny, I Promise You
The New Pornographers- Adventures in Solitude (DH **Personal Favorite**)

…and here’s a song I’ve been loving too. Can’t wait for him to blow up even more with Graduation.

MP3: Kanye West feat. John Mayer- Bittersweet

My favorite thing of the past two days…

Sierra Nevada 2007 Bigfoot Ale
9.6% Alcohol by the volume in a beer. It was like a kick to the face every sip. But boy was it tasty.
