In which I have to make my own sort of Sophie's choice

I suppose I shouldn't joke about such things, but it's kinda true. I woke up this morning to birds chirping, the smell of coffee and a general good mood. Actually, that's not true. It was a car alarm, the smell of wine from the glass left next to my bed and I'm in a pissy mood. You know why? 1) Not that this is news to anyone, but the final Sopranos episode airs tonight (Holy crapballs! I can't believe it's finally here!). It's going to be so good, I'm pretty sure it'll make me want to kill myself. 2) The Hold Steady show is tonight. AT THE SAME TIME! I'm honestly conflicted. Sure, I can watch the Sopranos later, but I kinda need to watch it along with the rest of America so that I can immediately start talking shit about it and/or collapse into a sobbing pile in my living room floor. But I've also been super excited about this damn show for weeks now because I am a dork. I mean, come on! Craig Finn! At this point, I really don't know what I'll do. Maybe miss a few songs and risk shitty seats/standing area? Oh God. Just kill me now. In the meantime, I should probably drink something. It's Sunday, right? Mimosas and Bloody Marys!

skip the show. it would be one of many that you'll remember years from now, but there's only one last episode of the Soprano's.

Prediction: AJ kills himself, Carm blames Tony and kills him. You heard it here.

normally, i would agree, but living out here in the sticks means that good musical performances are few and far between and i like to stock up when i can. i think i'm going to compromise and go late.

i might agree with your prediction. obvs a family member gets it. i just hope we finally get to see meadow's boobs!

Amen to Meadow's boobs. I'm tired of lying awake at night wondering about her nipples. Bring out the girls!

the concert probably won't have started by the time you get there anyway. Unless the Opolis has started holding to their schedules. Also the Hold Steady will be the last band on, so about 11 at the earliest. You should watch the Sopranos.

blythe said...

you guys are right. i should and i will. i think, part of me is just wanting to avoid it because then maybe it won't actually end and i don't want to see tony or carm get whacked. because i am cool like that. i think i will make some fucking ziti to commemorate. tear!

I thought my cable went out right at the end!
But I suppose instead of making some crazy ending with a shoot-out, they made the right choice. It's kind of like the story goes on, and we're left wondering what will happen.
I loved the Journey song too, made me happy to watch the ending with such a good song playing.

Laterz.

well, in the end, tony is just a city boy, born and raised in south detroit.
