About four miles from where I grew up. Once I saw on the news that there was a murder in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island, I figured it had to be mob-related. Things haven't changed in 50 years....

I used to like riding my bicycle around those hills. There's a cool lighthouse there as well.

Is he wearing a velvet sports coat over a denim T-shirt?
The fashion police could be possible suspects for this extrajudicial killing.

I have family in the tri-state area and in the 60s my aunt married a made man in the Genovese family who "worked" as a "longshoreman" on Long Island. When I was in college in the 80's my uncle had a "heart attack" at work and my parents went to his funeral in CT (I didn't go because we weren't close). When I asked my dad how the funeral was, he said had never been at an Italian funeral with a closed casket. When I asked him why it was closed, he said "I never realized that your heart could explode out of your face."

Some things never change.

my friend is from SI. Woody Guthrie "dated" his mom. His father was a movie extra.
a dear friend, who due to knowing him for years, i understand EXACTLY how Trump's mind works.
in this video, the context (preceding moments) are: they (audience/friends and he) after jamming quite a while, request that i play a particular number and so he can play along better because he knows it: Melissa. i start playing it... i repeat the opening chords over and over until i get *sick waiting for him to join in... before i start singing.

hear me say, walking off: C'mon man!!! ...then another friend in the audience repeats it: "C'mon man!" more or less (laughingly) backing me up. then, watch when he raises his finger in the air, ... and then immediately turns the tables. ;))

i hope you enjoy this. ...btw, i've lost nearly 50lbs.

One time about '65 some loafer floater asked about the pronunciation of Italiano.
He asked "is it EYE-taliantoe or eye-tali-ON-toe.?"
After I tuned um up with a round point shovel, I said, "Never ask that again! Ah Fun Gold!"

Interesting how flippant RoC is about a white gang shooting.

Maybe, but I was actually commenting more on the grim reality he was witness to.

A mob boss suspects his wife is having an affair, so he calls his top hitman.

They lay on a small hill in back of the house, which is all glass.

A half an hour later a light comes one. The hitman looks through his scope and says, "boss, I hate ta tell ya, but your wife come in da house with another man."

As lights turn one across the house, the hitman gives a running account: "Boss, your wife took off his pants ... boss, he's takin' off her blouse ... boss, she took off her bra" etc etc.

The mob boss says, very angrily, "shoot off her head. And while you're at it shoot off this man's ------ so he can never do this to another man's wife."

10 seconds later, the hitman fires his weapon ... once.

"Boss, I got 'em bote wid one shot!"
