A True “Jersey Boy”

I had to pause my posting hiatus today in order to pay respect to a beloved actor, James Gandolfini.

Gandolfini was a New Jersey native, and died yesterday, Wednesday June 19th, 2013.

Below is an article with some information known so far:
James Gandolfini: Variety

A New Jersey native & Italian-Amercian myself, I was saddened by his sudden death.
Although, the role he was best known for (Tony Soprano of the HBO hit “The Sopranos) was sometimes criticized for being stereotypical, I was a fan of the show.

The Sopranos was revered for being a piece of writing genius. Gandolfini was known for giving depth to both the role he played and the show.

He will indeed be missed.

I never watched the show, but I saw him in person at a mall. All these women were chasing after him. It was hysterical. Then one time I was on a bus back from NYC, right after 9/11 and there was a marsh fire in the Meadowlands area. All I saw was the smoke and thinking suspiciously it was another act of terrorism. All this was going through my brain as I was stuck in traffic. Then this guy screams out, “Oh no! Now I’m gonna miss The Sopranos!” It must have been SOME show for that to be the biggest thought going through someone’s head right after 9/11!

Sad to see someone so young go. He’s only a year older than me!

I heard he was definitely popular with the ladies! Haha!

51 is certainly too young to go. It was so strange, I was just watching a re-run of The Sopranos the other night. Then the next day I heard this. Such a shame. All the good ones are going. 😦
I guess some stars just shine too bright for this Earth.
Thanks for the ping, dear!
