Ciao tutti! [25 Oct 2005|10:50pm]

Eh, I do not know if this is significant to you all, but I live in Napoli, which is home of the mafia. I see their homes, fancy cars, nice suits, I've seen their work. It's pretty interesting. Driving by you'll find a man in a suit with a gun. Or a man walking along the side of the road in a really nice suit. Guys in restaurants I go to, with the famous fedora look. It's all real. Driving home from Caserta one day, I saw a dead man outside a set of steps, covered with blood. It had "mafia" written all over it.

But there are some good things about the mafia. They do offer protection to the people. Many of the landlords are mafia. If you have a problem in you neighborhood, you tell them and it's fixed the next day. It's really interesting. It's almost our underground form of govn't here in Italia. If anyone wants to know more, I won't tell you because I'll be dead the next day! LOL! Just joking... arrivederci! ^.^

Long Time Associate [29 Jun 2004|01:56am]

[ mood | good ]

Just wanted to give a little introduction.

Alright, so I haven't read cases upon cases about the mob nor do I memorize stats of these gangsters. However, I have long admired the whole idea of organized crime for a long time, just never really got around to fully diving into it. It's always been fascinating, yet, I keep my distance for a few reasons I don't think I really need to get into. Still, I find this a great community to be in 1) because I actually do want to learn more about the mob and I think definite interection and heavy submersion will get that going and 2) people with this same interest are always nice to be around. So, I don't necessarily consider myself a hardcore mafioso like I think some of you are, but more of an associate who is very friendly with the wiseguys.

I've always loved the movies, the style of things, and of course, that code of silence. Anyway, just wanted to give a kudos to the community.
