Yes. The creepy vibe you feel from him is definitely legitimate.
I’ve just been reading the court transcript. He went by the name Junior Sirico. Funny how that name ended up in the show then.
He really seems a nasty guy.
A side anecdote…
I had left the USA right after University and moved to Japan… lived there for many years. However, I moved back to the USA in 97 for a year and a half. At first, I was in Goa withdraw. Tokyo has the most amazing psy scene, but the USA is stuck in the 70s (grateful dead etc). Once I had found the scene in NYNY (small as it was) I was in better spirits. One of the last parties I went to there was an Etnica party in the village. The place wasn’t what I was used to… the people at the door were all full on Italians (in the NYNY sense), and there was a HUGE line outside of the club. Myself and the other people I was with were all dressed in typical Tokyo Goa party style… so we got “the nod” to skip the line and enter.
As we start heading to the door, a taxi comes flying down the road with another car behind him. The taxi stops, and the cabbie opens his door and sits behind it with a gun drawn. The other car hit reverse and took off. We get to the door and we knew the lady there (older psy freak lady, all NYNY Goaheads would know her) but the men she was standing with looked like they just came off of a casting call for The Godfather part 4. I’m already a bit freaked, and now my mind starts racing with gangland war scenes from mafia movies.
Once inside, all was better, mostly. Max and crew were playing a wicked set. There was one guy that had me laughing so hard though. He had those gigantic pants on (they resemble a pair of Mongolian yurts sew together in the crotch region) and a polo shirt with the collar popped up. His hair was so full of mousse that it could technically be considered an emergency energy supply. He wad some type of toy… a yoyo or some such thing… and was trying to move it in rhythm… but he failed miserably, over and over again. We were analyzing him (as being in that mindset will make you do) and came to the conclusion that he must have been on a bad combination of cocaine (for ego) and GHB mixed with Ketamine (to explain his utter lack of coordination).
The venue also had quite a few “raver gang” members. And there was a feeling in the air of a lack of personal safety… both financial and physical. Really creepy. I realized then I had to get back to Japan.
Moral of the story? If the doormen of the venue look like the Sopranos, party elsewhere.
