Ozzy and Tony Soprano

Like a Jersey hooker jonesing for a fix, I have to watch The Sopranos. I am fascinated by Tony Soprano and his band of Italian thugs. I haven’t watched it in sequence but it’s not hard to keep up with. Tony is the man and of course all the most beautiful women want to get all up in his power and money.  In one of my favorite story lines, Tony has a Russian girlfriend missing a leg then he ends up with her sister who catches on fire while making Tony a sandwich. He picks up the sister, badly burned from the hospital and tells her he is getting back together with his wife.

I wasn’t interested in mob movies til I went to Italy. My mouth waters when Tony goes to his wine collection and I can smell the food in the restaurants where they decide who to whack or how to retaliate for an infringement on their honor. 

WARNING: The Sopranos is a perverse, gritty and brutal show. Don’t watch these clips with your kids. No one gets hit with a shovel, but if you like to watch Oprah in the middle of the day, an 8 am or 2 pm viewing of the Sopranos me might not be right for you. The video spoof below contains foul language and some others stuff that wouldn’t be good to watch at work. 

Everything is crazier with Ozzy Osbourne. Where in the hell did this come from? I’m not sure what I would do if I saw the guy who plays Tony Soprano in real life. Run? Crawl out a bathroom window. Put a heavy object in my purse and smile a lot? They are very bad boys.

This is very strange: Bill and Hillary Soprano?
Soprano Ohs.

 7 Seven Minute Sopranos – a “whacked out” refresher.
This reveals to me that I have seen all these episodes
but in a very strange order. Don’t tell me the ending!!!!!

Hillary, queen for one more day

Day 2

 

bill and hillary clintonDamn It! I wanted Hilary Clinton to be President!!!!  Some time in the early 90s, I saw Hillary Clinton speak at the University of Texas with Ann Richards (proud Governor of Texas replaced by George W. Bush), Barbra Jordan (first Black woman elected to the Texas Senate) and Lena Guerrero (the first woman & the first person of ethnic minority background to have served on the Texas Railroad Commission). A mousy, nerdy bookworm looking lady, she really impressed me with her confidence and love of politics.  

That was almost 20 years ago and she’s still at it. Ann, Barbra and Lena have unfortunately left us but Hillary has continued on in their spirit as a mother; a wife; an attorney twice voted one of the most influential in America; a First Lady of Arkansas who helped transform the schools; a bestselling author; a First Lady for America who helped transform that role, becoming a champion for health care and families at home and a champion of women’s rights and human rights around the world.

Day 2

When I voted for Hillary in the primaries, I almost cried. I couldn’t believe a woman’s name was on the ballot. It was beautiful and I had hoped to see her cross the finish line. Should have known what wouldn’t happen after electing GW, who owed a baseball team; his dad was director of the CIA & President, over Al Gore who was Vice President and a Senator for many years. Al went on to win a Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental efforts, his film An Inconvient Truth won 2 Oscars and his web page even won a Webby Award, while George W stepped up to handle our country like a privately owned company with some real doozies on the Board of Directors. Bush told everyone Jesus told him to be President and it was a sealed deal.

hillary clinton 1960sI will support Barack Obama in his efforts to become President. I’m proud to know a black man is able to take the Democratic nomination. Amazed by the pop icon status, all the Obamaisms and the enthusiasm of his supporters is fantastic. I hope Obama will carry us into a new AGE OF HOPE; a time historians will recount as an amazing reformation similar to the genius of the New Deal, something that will leave it’s mark on generations to come and drag us out of these fearful, expensive times. I believe hope spreads just like a plague.  I believe both Hillary and Barrack can do the job, it’s just Hillary wouldn’t even have to figure out where to stash her underwear or where they keep the stapler in the White House. She already knows how to operate the red phone!

Maybe Hillary can’t be President because she needs to win the Nobel Prize for reforming education or traveling the world as an ambassador like Jimmy Carter. Who knows. I do have to say, Barrack Obama selecting Joe Bidden for his running mate is just as stupid and perplexing as Green Bay passing on Brett FavreAt least, she could be queen for one more day at the Democratic National Convention!
