The Death of Tony Soprano
I won't lie. Since I started this blog I've dreamed of getting Boing Boing'd or creating something "viral" that spreads across the internet like a fungus. Of course, I'm not willing to let limited resources or a complete lack of talent stop me. The closest I've come is a story and a non-embedded link on Ain't It Cool News last summer. I thought "The Push Page" would take off but it only landed on a few scattered blogs. Blast!
So here's my latest attempt, "The Death of Tony Soprano," a short film a friend and I slapped together in eastern Oregon's Alvord Desert a few years ago. Click here or on the link above to view it.
The "film" is a little over a minute long, filled with poorly-timed music queues and You Tube over-enlarged its original aspect ratio. Quite frankly, it doesn't deserve to be viewed by anyone but, since the sixth season of The Sopranos begins on Sunday, I figured I'd give this one a go.
May it be viewed by many thousands of people who will all say, "Wow, that sucked."
Hey, it could happen.
SUNDAY NIGHT UPDATE: So I'm sitting here listening to Little Steven's Underground Garage on KGON. Host, E-Street Band Member and Sopranos actor Steve Van Zandt is supposedly broadcasting live tonight from the back room at the Bada Bing (in real life it's a club called Satin Dolls).
I don't know if the show is a "force of nature" as Van San just claimed on the air but tonight's season opener ended with a pretty ballsy cliffhanger. I won't completely give it away here but it does have something in common with the video above.
If you would like to hear the Sopranos-themed episode of Underground Garage, it's archived over here on the show's site.
