Welcome to the new, daily, unpredictably discursive, wildly prolix and entertaining blog-a-thon about my soon to be released movie, "ROB THE MOB". I will be blogging madly--pretty much every day if not multiple times a day--leading up to the theatrical release of the movie, slated for March 21st of this brand new year.
In addition to posting past photos and videos of the on-set experience of the making of the film, I'll be venturing into historical stuff--New York in the early 1990's (which is when the film takes place), Mafia history, history of movies about the Mob, and lots of clips of the meatballs i.e.--the singers and performers who personify the era of mob domination and mob style.

In a shocking change from my previous blogging efforts, I'm going to endeavor to keep the posts short, to the point and entertaining...so check in a couple of times a day and see what's new in the way of...crap about all things mob-esque. Meanwhile, let's kick off with the RTM trailer followed by a meatball moment, one of the truly distinguished paisan's of the post-war era, Buddy Greco...
