I Wuz Whacked Sopranos T-shirt

Well, didja love it? Didja hate it? Did you feel whacked?

Many many years ago there was a movie called Queen Christina, starring Greta Garbo. At the very end of the movie, there was a long closeup of Garbo's face, looking out into the distance. We the audience project onto her face whatever ending we want, whatever thoughts we want to have, whatever future we see for her. Ditto for Truffaut's brilliant 400 Blows. I think the ending of the Sopranos was something like that...we the viewer, with all we know about this family, really must impose our own ending onto it. I thought it was a great way to finish out this brilliant show.

So here's a I Wuz Whacked t-shirt for all you out there who maybe didn't love the ending.
