If you were then what the fuck are you doing back here kid?

I'm not 100% sure if I was but I had a chance to join but finishing people's stories isn't my thing.

Well I for one do know. http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/110701/1594
You were banned from coming back here yet you've decided to continue to post here? How funny. And that's not a good thing. This means you had a chance to join and blew it. Unless Boris has said otherwise, what are you still doing here? Because I really am interested in your reason?

We used to be so much more than just finishing someone else's stories. In our earlier days we would start flame wars and constant harassment of single people all around the BBS. The good 'ol days.

Now, it's become more of a social club of sorts, any life in here can only help the rejuvenation of our crew. If you can contribute posts that are constructive to rebuilding of the NG Mafia, you're welcome to stay. If you can't, I await you're departure as I load this shotgun.

Well that's nice aint it. Good for you J-Rex. Now we can talk business as we used to....which if I recall involved your favourite weapon range as I offered everyone tea and then some more.

Although concerning what job you wanted I don't think they are used as such due to inactivity and it being pointless. Not concerning the upper echelon who obviously have titles.

Generaly what happens is that you are given a kind of trial period to see what kind of a poster/user you are. Then your post count here and it's quality is checked. And then some other things, but you don't need to worry about them. Just be active here and don't be a pillock and we'll see.

Well its good to see some new(er) blood and all but if we really want this place to be active again and encourage others to join who aren't thirteen year old nerds to dumb to read past the first page we should really do something. Stories are nice but the Dramatis Personae is going to be a bit short for a while. I tried to start a discussion about Mob films but apparently nobody gives a damn....

Or perhaps I should of given some examples. I have seen several very interesting films involving the Mafia two of which where different versions of the same event, namely the rise of Jimmy Hoffa. I had wondered why so many Americans seemed to equate Unions (and from a European perspective quite toothless Unions with a very right wing leadership) with organised crime. Thanks to these films I have my answer.

The films where called Hoffa and FIST and for the sake of coherency I'm going to split them up now.

Hoffa starring Jack Nicholson and directed by Danny Devito whom also co stars is a fairly accurate biography of the life of Jimmy Hoffa and his leadership of the Teamsters Union and what obstacles Unions in America faced, greedy bosses, brutal police, strike breakers fears of "Red Infiltration" etc. And how after some Union members where hospitalised and even killed Hoffa turned to the Mafia for help. The acting is great as is the period settings, though some of the riot scenes need work theres a lot of obvious pushing and shoving and arm flailing going on.

What I really liked about Hoffa is that it points out the blatant hypocrisy from the government in particular Bobby Kennedy whose ancestors built the Kennedy fortune on smuggling and bootleg alcohol. It also makes clear that the only reason the Union and the Mob are working together is because it makes good business sense, rather then some strange comic book convergence of evil. By using Mob muscle and contacts they can wage successful strikes to get concessions, and the mob can use membership and donations to invest some of there funds into the Union pension fund to keep it off the radar of the authorities and use the strikes as a cover to pull a number of heists.

Of course it isn't long before both the Union and the Mob make to many powerful enemies and they both start to feel the strain and well the film takes the obvious step of portraying the Hoffa was killed by the Mafia to get him out of the way theory as the truth and to the films credit its framing device manages to keep the hit a surprise.

Now FIST is something special. It was made in 1978 just three years after Hoffa disappeared, and so does that little trick controversial films do by changing some names. Jimmy Hoffa is now Walter Kovak and he's being played by Sylvester Stallone, whom actually manages to act in this film. This was before the Rocky sequels and Rambo (even though his performance in that was a good representation of a burned out and jaded Vet) showed him all he needed to do was grunt and lift weights to earn his paycheck. Anyway the name change also allows them to spice up the details abit more. For starters the Unions name is now Federation of Interstate Truckers (F.I.S.T.) and at several points Kovak actually turns them into an army of street fighters.

And here he actually makes friends with the Mob and uses them to kick start what in real life would be an urban insurrection, including Sniping police (though he did kill first) ambushing scab trucks and beating up local security. Though again the bosses at the factories and police started the violence, Kovak is ambushed and beaten early on purely for trying to get drivers to take FIST leaflets, and several friends where shot for picketing. Although Stallone is doing a good job of acting, he's no Jack Nicholson, so whereas Jack humiliates the pompous offcials and management Stallone just threatens to "Cut of your balls" so basically imagine a proto Rocky leading an army drivers teaming up with Tommy gun toting Gangsters in Fedora's.

It isn't as clever or inciteful as Hoffa but it certainly is entertaining.

What exactly do you want me to post? Do you just want me to stay on topic in here and post regularly so the club can thrive? I'm confused on what exactly your asking.

Pretty much thats it yeah. If you need some help getting started we used to come up with what particular role in the family we'd be best at and why. And before you ask no you can't be the Godfather or Underboss, I'm talking about specific roles like smuggling, armed muscle or in my case Interrogation.

He's already come up with that in the past. That's what we mostly talked about when me and him were trying to join. But allas he was told to never return, but hurrah, the Godfather was feeling kind, on that, the day of his daughters wedding and so gave you a second chance. Me? Well we all know I'm already in.

But ja! Good plan, let us converse on what role we could best serve the Godfather under.
I myself was thinking that I could best serve the Godfather as a hitman, or in some form of role which requires thought and intellect. Yourself J-Rex?

There's many things I can do to help you guys around here. I think what I can really help out with his any legal issues that may arise in the future. You make a mess and I'll clean it up my friends. I can be a debt collector if need be. Just tell me what to do and consider it done.

Thank God, my toilets been backed up for a week now.... Only joking, actually those could work, would be a bit more variety, most people often forget an organised criminal fraternity is more then some brandy drinking cigar smoker in a lounge chair and a dozen thugs in trench coats running around warehouses with sawn off shotguns and vague accents. Go ahead and experiment.

Well aren't you happy that I made you fetch al that beer for me way back.

I'm proud oif you man keeping this place running must have been hell with almost evryone gone. But then again most of NG seems a little dead. When I saw that you were still here I figured you could use some help and I'm sure that the bullshit will eventualy sort itself out, it mostly does.

So I'm officialy back at the most awesome club on the internet, guess I'll start writing a story about the good old days

Werd, I started goin hard when everything died down and it was just me here for a while, I didn't want la famiglia coming back to a dead club with locks and chains on it so i pumped a lil gas in and been grinding on fuels since. I had too big a place in my chest for this shit to just watch it go under.

So I'm officialy back at the most awesome club on the internet, guess I'll start writing a story about the good old days

that's what the fuck's up

Oh and to Confuc.. I'm not gonna place you in a job, this ain't the army, it's the fucking Mafia. Ask yourself what you can do for us, then get back at me.
I would also suggest changing your sig if you're gonna be posting here more often. That's all, take it or leave.

Yes well, I tried that and had no reply from anyone. There was a guy we could have been seen too. Another who owed a favour. Even some guy who was interested in joining. But nobody got back to me on those things. So nothing happened so I asked you if there was anything.

I would also suggest changing your sig if you're gonna be posting here more often. That's all, take it or leave.

I would like to. But last time I tried a few people threw a hissy fit over the matter and demanded I put it back. Just like my aura back before the redesign.

So the story is coming along slowly, I've decided to take my time with this one and do it right. It's been a long time since I wrote a story so I'm a little rusty. Don't kill me if it's not my best piece of work.

I should be finished somewhere next week with part 1 so keep your eyes pealed.

A beat up coop comes to a halt in front of a bank on a early Monday morning..
The windows start to crack and smoke pours out the side into the sky
[Joic] "Ight yo, just go up in that motherfucker.."
A gun cocks
[Joic] "Grab the motherfuckin money and get outta there!"
[Boris] "Yea yea"
[Joic] "Imma be right here waitin for you."
[Boris] "Ight."
The door opens and the passenger jumps out holding an AK low against his leg.
[Joic] "Yo B!"
[Boris] "Whaaaaat?!"
[Joic] "Don't kill nobody this time!"
[Boris] "naaawww ight.....god fuckin damn."

The doors open and Boris enters whistling a tune with his head low. Only a few costumers fill the lobby.
He walks right up to the counter and is greeted with a smile from the girl behind the desk
[Teller] "Hi can i help you?"
[Boris] "Yes I'd like to make a withdrawal.."
[Teller] "Ok if yo.."
Before she could finish a barrel touched her forehead.
[Boris] "Now put the money in the fucking bag and I won't kill you!" he said low and harshly.
The girls began to shake, she was obviously new as she fumbled to open the draw.
[Teller] "Oh my God please don't kill me..." the girl pleaded as she stuffed money and tears into the bag, she had begun to cry.
[Boris] "I'm not gonna fucking kill you just put the money in the bag. And stop looking around!"

The young girl had just finished putting the last note into the bag when she looked into Boris' eyes and at the rifle pressed to her head.
*BANG!*
[Boris] "Thank you!" Boris yelled as he darted towards the door, people were beginning to shout and take cover as he blew through the doors and dove through the windows into the beat up whip which peeled off soon as he was in.

[Joic] "You fuckin did it again didn't you!"
Joic yelled as Boris rolled on the passenger seat laughing covered in blood.
[Joic] "You gotta stop that shit kid" Joic said as he sparked a clip, "But we got the money so let's go."
[Boris] "Hehehahah!..think that's enough though? Prolly need more he said 50 Mill by tonight.."
[Joic] "We need to make a few more stops, I know a couple places. Makes me wish I would of saved up some money from the ol' days.."
[Boris] "Wouldn't even be in this shit if it were the old days."
[Joic] "Yea shit went downhill, but we can turn this around we just need to grab a little more and then we can talk to him."

A banged up car sped down the block trailing clouds of smoke.

Where all the white women at?

I heard joke once.

Man goes to doctor, says he's depressed. Life doesn't seem worth it anymore, asks for help.
Doctor says treatment is simple, the great Boris-4-u is in town, he will surely cheer you up for he is awesome.
Man breaks down in tears, shoots doctor in chest, right before he dies man leans in and says.

"But Doc....I am Boris."

Good joke, cue applause, roll credits.
