3-ball in his side pocket

Play it: The Sopranos Ep. 6.11

The rejoicing you heard this past Sunday night was Sopranos fans cheering... someone finally got wacked - two as a matter of fact. Yup, that's right, Vito wins the SDP (Sopranos Dead Pool.) Even though I know it was inevitable, I hated seeing Vito go. Joe Gannascoli really owned that character this season and basically, wrote in his own character's death by making the suggestion last season that Vito be a closet gay. Of course, the many homophobe Sopranos fans, I'm sure, were cheering, but did they notice Phil coming out of the closet to do it? A little metaphorical humor to be sure. What wasn't funny, though, was them leaving him with a cue stick shoved up his ass. And of course, what is not lost on us is that Phil taking out Tony's captain (regardless of the fact he ordered a hit at the same time,) was akin to light a fuse to a powder keg. Fat Dom, one of Vito's executioners, gets his own come-uppance when he cracks one to many gay jokes at the expense of his New Jersey colleagues Sil and Carlo. Now we're looking at war.

This week's music selections reminded me once again of the glaring AC/DC hole in the digital distribution world ("Back in Black" played while Tony got his knob shined) but we did get probably our first taste of kindercore in the Sopranos world (Gritty Kitty,) as well as a selection from the movie Casablanca. Anyone else find it eerie that Carmela's visit to Paris was completely devoid of soundtrack? The quiet had an odd effect.

I can't believe how fast people update these Wikipedia entries.

I still don't understand why I can't find the AC/DC I want in Rhapsody. What is the story?
