When Julia asked Siciliano to ‘sing me a few lines’ he did and just about everyone in the car joined in! Now the video has gone viral and personally I’m glad it did so that the world gets to see something cool happen on the LIRR to counteract that awful viral video of one commuter’s racist rant [More]

We’ve been waiting years for the Queen movie but given the exciting trailer above it’s going to be hard to wait even just a few more months to see the finished product.
