for some reason, i decided to make a lil' EP about this guy
~ LAZY_TITLE ~ it's not really my best EP. but he did
get an EP out of me; can't think of another actor that has.

i'll listen, thanks

much respect to the actor. probably the worst and somehow
lovable character ever. (i'll forever be upset for his

banger meme from @gabagoolmarx

that chick who was only in a handful of sopranos episodes,
upon hearing the name paulie walnuts, cracked: "...he's
still alive?" and i view this as one of the wonderful
sopranos meta-jokes. like: shit, this guy is still
playing this character? but he was that character. it's a
bit iffy, that once this guy genuinely was beating people up
for loan payments. i'm more a fan of the part of his life
where that stopped and he just wove himself through loads of
great shit over decades

in particular, it was sort of a subtle genius having him go
neurotic in the sopranos. the sort of thing you only truly
appreciate ages later, precisely like picard's neurosis in

i do believe that, to take the sopranos role, he demanded it
in his contract his character could never be a rat. it must
be strange living your life as a movie character

don't worry about my album. i just linked it, because about
him in sopranos

there's a scene in sopranos where Paulie is in a hotel,
sitting neatly right on the edge of his bed watching and old
comedy movie.

Tony is in the room next door, hanging out on his balcony.
He can hear him laughing. And he's just fucking disgusted
with Paulie, disgusted that anyone else can have a good
time, have a moment to laugh. The look on his face listening
to Paulie laugh is priceless. Tony had a real jealous

I havent watched it in several years but that scene stuck
with me. Really good writing on that show.

i more remember him fighting over a mustard packet with
michael imperoli, talking about how your shoelaces get piss
on them when you walk into the bathroom, and firing his
priest because he feels like his priest isn't holding up his
end for the protection money he's been paying

"head shot" is the russian beast going down right before
they're never able to find him again, that shot, sample on

"the trunk," that's where paulie is taking a phone call
during the screening of chrissy's movie at an awkward

columbians, a dishwasher full of cash after he gets kicked
in the crotch

it is also hilarious to me where you get a brief glimpse of
his home life and he's just sleeping on this tiny brutal
military cot

crotch too
