"When I went backpacking through Europe after I quit school, I went to this island off the coast of Sicily. This volcanic island. And on the boat over, there was this pine box. Somebody from the island who was being returned to be burried there, and there were all these old Sicilians dressed up all in black, waiting, just lined up on the beach. And when they got that coffin to the beach, these old Sicilian women just wen ape-shit, screaming, throwing themselves on it, beating their chests, tearing at their hair, making animal noises. It was just so… So real."
