The Tonegents World Tour: Italy

The world tour rolls on today with a stop in my homeland, the #8 country in number of visitors to Tonegents:


The five best things about Italy, aside from myself, that is:

1) The Mafia - because all the best movies are about 'em.
2) Italian Sausage - the king of all unspecified meats in tubing.
3) The fact that a porn star once got elected into the Parliament - right for so many reasons... obviously, this is one forward thinking country!
4) Ferraris - especially the one Magnum P.I. drove.
5) Monica Bellucci - 'nuff said.

And as much of a pimp as Frankie Valli was, my italian music selection comes from the movie score master, Signor Ennio Morricone...

I shouldn't need to say much more, since dude is a legend and all that. This track is a funky number with some serious guitar shredding, believe it or not, and it's extra cool because it comes from a Charles Bronson movie. Charles Bronson was one bad dude. But everyone's all about Chuck Norris these days. Well, you know what? Fuck Chuck Norris. Because before Chuck could get off one of his roundhouse kicks, Charles Bronson would just shoot him in the face... so there...

Ennio Morricone - Svolta Definitiva

Q. Why are most Italian men named Tony?
A. When they got on the boat to America they stamped To NY on their foreheads.
