A Big Night Birthday Feast – Timpano!

A couple years ago, I was looking on YouTube for a specific scene from the Stanley Tucci and Tony Shaloub 1996 movie Big Night.

This past week, I passed the time reading.  And reading.  And reading.  I love to read, but even I can find it somewhat tedious if it’s something I feel I have to do.  I may have referenced the stack of magazines I had hidden (shamefully) under my bed.  Well, the photo above was it.  I…
