Nice italian speaking! :-)
awesome, but oy, that fire escape gave me the willies. question: is there a (legal?) reason why they chose to do it up there, and not down on the street? street performance ordinances, or something?
And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street!
Am I overthinking, or is that a really really racist song?
Which? The Tarantella? Is “Italian” a race now?
If you’re in the Lega Nord, you probably think that southern Italians are a different race.
Italian was a race when Americans considered them non-white, which was true when That’s Amore was written. Today, most of us know that very few Italians talk-a like-a this-a, and most can manage a metaphor more complex than pizza. Not so much back in the 50s, when we had just finished bombing them into submission..
You’re right, you are overthinking! :P
I suggest everyone take dramamine before watching.
Irony: The only actual Italians in Little Italy these days are probably the tourists.
Makes me think of
