From Abruzzi, Italy, Bruno fights a Nazi in front of 26,000 screaming nuts in MSG. All of them see Waldo Von Ehrich's "foreign object," a can opener, but the ref doesn't :) This is theatre. This is life. Enjoy my friends.

Today, Siobhan and Jim and myself are off to Paul's house in upstate New York for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Paul has instructed us that this is how we must dress for the occasion, as pictured above! Personally, I hope I get to wear the fancy gold cape!
I am responsible for making the broccoli. Siobhan and I have also made brown bread, which is traditionally Irish brown bread. We hope everyone will like it.

Since most of our loyal readers out there in Blog-O-Land will likely never get a chance to see the four of us sing, I thought I'd post this video of German Super-Star Singer, Heino, who we've patterned ourselves after. But, you know, in an Italo-Lithuanian way.

Jim, Stephen and I went to the Film Forum last night to watch Divorce Italian Style. It was almost a Men's Choir evening. But not quite. Paulie could not join us due to illness, but Stephen's amore Siobhan was present for the movie. It almost felt like the time Medusa took The Invisible Woman's place in the Fantastic Four! But Paulie, don't fret, we did not break the sactity of the Choir. After the movie, Jim and Sal went for dinner at Bar Pitti. No Cynar was served, and no women joined us. Stephen went home with Siobahn, and she cooked him his dinner as a proper wife should. We did have great food. Jim started with a Tuscan bean salad, while I opted for the Caprese salad. Nice. And Jim had some pasta with a ground pork ragu, while I went for fettuccelli with truffles. It was a festival of truffles! Very good.
As far as the movie, Marcelo Mastroianni slayed us. Amazing subtelty throughout, he was surrounded by an equally amazing cast. Tremendous! Based on this movie alone, I feel every member of the Men's Choir should grow mustaches. Until next time, Bafangul!
E Baci a tutti,

We had roasted chicken and potatos at one of our favorite eating establishments, the Bon Vivant Diner, on Broadway between 12th and 13th. Arturo served us, although Margaret seated us. Cookie (in the back) cooked. No singing was involved. We talked about the new play Paul's working on, and life. I drank seltzer (as I often do), and Paul had coffee. The chicken and potatos were delicious.
