The girl across the way was sobbing her way through a Friday night while blasting Adele so we played this to combat her weeping.

This whole episode is a triumph; the way James Gandolfini is able to inhabit a different Tony is mesmerizing & you see in his performance how deep he's able to go inside the character; how he & Chase have worked together to create this glorious, complex man. Every dream sequence in the series is eerie & spectacular, but this, Tony in his deepest sleep, is its best.

The song that ends the episode, Moby's When It's Cold I'd Like to Die with vocals by Mimi Goese (who sounds like Annie Lennox's ghost) is the perfect melancholic accompaniment to the episode's theme. The song begins with the line "Where were you when I was lonesome?" My heart breaks.

Roger Ballen directed Die Antwoord's glorious original & entertaining I Fink U Freeky video. This is what music videos should look like. It makes me long for the videos in the mid-90s that were so grimy & grotesque.

I just read this great interview with the South Afrain photographer Roger Ballen. This is my favourite quote:

I believe that if a person find my images scary then that individual has been affected in a very positive way. The images have penetrated into the ‘shadow side’ the place of the psyche that we are scared to confront, to come to grips with. Most people call it the dark side. For me the dark side has always been a source of light and energy. I often mention to people that one cannot find light without knowing the dark.

The ancient Egyptians postulated Seven Souls.

Top soul, and the first to leave at the moment of death, is Ren, the Secret Name. This corresponds to my Director. He directs the film of your life from conception to death. The Secret Name is the title of your film. When you die, that's where Ren came in.

Second soul, and second one off the sinking ship, is Sekem: Energy, Power, Light. The Director gives the orders, Sekem presses the right buttons.

Number three is Khu, the Guardian Angel. He, she, or it is third man out...depicted as flying away across a full moon, a bird with luminous wings and head of light. Sort of thing you might see on a screen in an Indian restaurant in Panama. The Khu is responsible for the subject and can be injured in his defense -- but not permanently, since the first three souls are eternal. They go back to Heaven for another vessel.

The four remaining souls must take their chances with the subject in the Land of the Dead.

Number four is Ba, the heart -- often treacherous. This is a hawk's body with your face on it, shrunk down to the size of a fist. Many a hero has been brought down, like Samson, by a perfidious Ba.

Number five is Ka, the Double, most closely associated with the subject. The Ka, which usually reaches adolescence at the time of bodily death, is the only reliable guide through the Land of the Dead to the Western Lands.

Number six is Khaibit, the Shadow, Memory, your whole past conditioning from this and other lives.

Number seven is Sekhu, the Remains.

This is my favourite of all the Sopranos season premiere openings. The song Seven Souls by the band Material is played over the scene. The song features William S. Burroughs reading excerpts from his novel The Western Lands. Its spooky foreshadowing perfection always sends me into a fit of ecstasy.
