    Mike Franzese is an intelligent man. Can you imagine how he felt being questioned by 2 potheads who ask him questions about stuff he already answered, because their short term memory is gone from smoking weed.

    Listening to guys like MF is a trip.. They inhabit this odd would where they tell you that the mafia is bad,and is not something that you should aspire to..but at the same time they speak with reverence about the life...there are two messages that at odds with each other...

    One thing that can be said about the Mob is that when it comes to business, they KNOW how to MARKET and PROMOTE a product. And I think one reason people like doing business with the Mob is because the Mob understands the importance of keeping clients and customers happy by offering them opportunities they cant get ANYWHERE ELSE. Seriously, America's leaders could learn a thing or two from these guys when it comes to economy.

    Mike Tyson, that was a very astute observation about the mob moving into corporate America. Instead of throwing a brick through your window, for not buying the mobs' window insurance, now they just run one of the biggest "Business Review" operations on the internet. If you don't sign-up and pay your dues, the outfit posts their own negative reviews about your business and buries other peoples positive reviews. Now THAT'S organized crime.

    Why is American families get so much smoke blowing up their ass. Hollywood is why. In Europe its different. In America they have a word fir a rat.

    I’m a huge film nerd, and I actually geeked out over the way this interview is shot. The close up shots of their heads speaking - it creates this sense of isolation, like when your friend tells a story. Inter split with wider shots of the three of them sitting around the table at different angles - just often enough to remind you you’re with friends. It’s great.
