Bryan talks to Anthony Paluzzi WHAT IS A PALUZZI? ... It's a question that has plagued mankind like a festering virus since the invention of speech... When we crawled out from caves and thoughts formed the first sentences in order for the masses to communicate, saying such things as, "Raw meat too chewy," and "Owww… Fire is freakin' hot!" Stuff like that. Actually the question that pops up most is, “What the hell are you doing?” The people who tend to ask this are those who didn’t know me when I was younger. When I took two fake severed heads made from Styrofoam and had them painted the color of caucasian flesh, cut the top off of one so it appeared scalped, spreading lots of dry fake blood I mixed on the severed section, and took the other head and dripped blood from it’s gouged out eye sockets. A noose made from shoestring rope went around both of their necks, and then I hung them from my bedroom window… on the outside. I guess being the only white kid growing up in Eastchester Housing Projects in the Bronx wasn’t enough to get attention – I had to make the neighborhood think I was insane as well. Was there something seriously wrong with me?
