 'Specially this month...out of ALL the months...I know he's with us.

Get's me melancholy for the "old days".
Get's me 'cited for the future.

Youse ready?!
OK!
 Grab a yummy drink & find a cozy spot...Dino-Winter month has arrived!
Inhale it!!!





I never will forget the station where we met
You dropped your skis a happy circumstance
No one would have guessed we had started
Started a winter romance
And all the way to Maine
On that enchanted train
The passing scenery didn't get a glance
We held hands completely light hearted
Off to a winter romance
We danced that night by candle light
The world was white with snow
The way we felt we never felt
The snow could melt and go
But though the snow is gone the romance lingers on
And those that said it didn't stand a chance
Will know when they see us together
That love's not been controlled by the weather
And all of our summers we'll have our winter romance
(Though the snow is gone the romance lingers on)
(And those that said it didn't stand a chance)
Will know when they see us together
That love's not been controlled by the weather
And all of our summers we'll have our winter romance

All I Want Is DINO: Factory Sealed! - Dean Martin - The Nashville Sessions - 1983

Hey pallies, likes  welcome back to Day 2 of Dino-winter season here at ilovedinomartin as we move day by day to Dino-winter-day.....the 25th of December....the day that our Dino departed our planet in 1995.  We are thinkin' that it might be most appro for us to rename this day Dino-departure-day as that is exactly what happened.  Your thoughts Dino-holics?

 One of the thin's that we most enjoy doin' in preparation for this reverent remembrance of our Dino's passin' is to search the ol' world wide web for delightful Dino-giftin' idears, many of which are easy on the pocketbook, but would be awesomely appreciated by Dino-philes of all ages and stages.  So,   likes on this second day of Dino-winter season 2016 we wanna shares with you a Dino-treasure that we are powerfully positive that simply a ton of Dino-holics woulda loves to be gifted with this Dino-season.                   

From the incredibly  intriguin' internet sales site, "Etsy" comes the offerin' of the vinyl recordin' of our Dino's last disc tagged "Dean Martin - The Nashville Sessions," released by Warner Brothers in 1983.  This is the only major Dino-al-b-um that has yet to be released in CD format, and we woulda guess is somewhat rare to come across.   As you will note below, it is bein' offered by a chick whose sales site is tagged "Missysvinyl."

This particular al-b-um is "factory sealed" meanin' that it oughta be in mint condition with only " a minor saw cut top right of album," meanin' that it was originally sold as a cutout.  Hard for those of us deeply devoted to our Dino to think that his last recordin' woulda ever reached the closeout status of a "cutout."  And, likes as you will note pallies, it's a beautiful bargain at only $9.99 plus shippin'.

Likes as we have never owned this original al-b-um ourselves, we would be deeply deeply delighted to have it gifted to us this Dino-winter season for Dino-sure.  To checks this offer out at it's original site, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.  And, we simply can't resist sharin' one more time, that greatest of great vid of our Dino, indeed our most beloved Dino's only MTV vid recordin' of  "Since I Met You Baby" directed by his youngest boypallie Ricci James who recently himself passed from this life.  So, below is a pristine version of that remarkable recordin'.

We remain,

Yours in Dino-remembrance,

Dino Martin Peters

Dean Martin, we gave him a martini glass and microphone.....


Image result for dean martin steubenville ohio home
Hey pallies, likes we are totally totally tickled to kick off our Dino-winter season 2016 with Dino-news directly from the town of our most beloved Dino's birth.....Steubenville, Ohio.  From Stu-ville television station WTOV Channel 9 comes news that the seasonal display tagged "The Nutcracker Village" has returned for a second year at the site of Fort Steuben.  Well, likes pallies there is simply no way that a display of life size nutcrackers in the place of our Dino's entry onto the planet could not include a remarkable rendition of our most most beloved Dino.

Likes as you will see below the Dino-cracker has our great great man wearin'  his tradition tuxedo with martini glass in one had and microphone in the other.  Our Dino's other signature trademark of his omnipresent Kent Cigarette is however missin'.   Also included below is a bit of patter statin' that the delightful display also included other members of the Rat Pack as well.

Truly, truly this Dino-winter season woulda be a terrific time to make pilgrimage to the place of our Dino's birth...to walk where Dino-walked and breath the air that our Dino breathed...and to see this huge homage of our Dino as a nutcracker extraordinaire!!!!   Truly a wonder way of honorin' our King of Cool as we remember his passin' from our presence on December 25, 1995.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters



STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — The Nutcracker Village is back.

From Dorothy to a Bee Keeper to Dean Martin, the nutcrackers are on display for the Ohio Valley at Fort Steuben for a second year in a row.

“Dean Martin, we gave him a martini glass and microphone but we had the whole Rat Pack, so each one had to have something that was identifiable as to which Rat Pack member it was,” artist Therese Nelson said. “So we nailed down the design and I give it to our master carver. He carves it out, and he can copy basically anything it turn it into something real."

On This Day In Dino-history: November 30, 1965

Hey pallies, likes we have no idear before a couple of minutes 'go that we woulda be sharin' yet a third Dino-gram with youse on this last day of November in the year of our Dino 2016, but as we were doin' our almost daily searchin' of the good ol' "Twingly" search blog for Dino-devotion we came 'pon the blog  tagged "KRQE," the tag for the home base of television channel 13 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In their prose tagged, "Today in History: November 30, the folks at "KRQE" have shared the coolest of cool candid shot of our most beloved Dino and Rat Pack pallies Mr. Frank Sinatra and Mr. Sammy Davis, Jr. 'long with fellow crooner Mr. Bing Crosby "during a recording session at Sinatra's Reprise Record Co. in California, Nov. 30, 1965."  It's a perfectly powerful pix that we ain't ever remember seein' before and we just knew that we needed to share it with all youse Dino-holics ASAP!!!!  We ain't got a clue what sort of al-b-um was bein' recorded...likes any of youse Dino-philes got a clue what the Dino-action was that day?????

We swankly salute the pallies at KRQE television station 13 for bringin' this hugely historic potently pictoral moment in Dino-history on their 'net site and bringin' such Dino-delight to many many who are deeply devoted to our one and only Dino.  Likes, to checks this out in it's original site, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-report.

Hey pallies, the ol' world wide web continues to be a genuine goldmine completely chocked full of great Dino-treasure just waitin' to be marvelously mined....and that's a huge huge reason we here at ilovedinomartin keeps doin' our best to uncover more and more Dino-devotion for all youse Dino-philes.    Last year at this time,while doin' some extra credit Dino-searchin' via google blog search we happened upon the rarest of rare Dino-find of some laviously  live croonin' of our most beloved Dino and his bestest of best pallie Mr. Frank Sinatra on November 30, 1956.

First posted on the blog "Crooks And Liars" on December 31, 2009, it took us almost five years to uncover this fantastic find of this  recordin' of our most beloved Dino singin' a trio of classic croons for the Hungarian Relief Concert with Sinatra also doin' some solo work.  All-in-all there is almost 22 minutes of sensational singin'.   Likes, 'cause this is a remarkably rare Dino-discovery  we are plannin' to share this on an annual basis, with this year bein' year tres.

We loves how this refreshin'  recordin' begins with the unnamed announcer graciously  givin' our great great man the purest of pure praise, sayin' "This fella is going to be on the, I think, one of the finest leading men we've ever seen around this town, and he is going to come out here now, and lead you all to a lot of happiness.   And, likes indeed our Dino lovin'ly  lays likes just  a ton of huge huge happiness on the crowd as he sings "All Of Me," "Innamorata," and "Is It True What They Say About Dixie."

 Our Dino mentions that it was producer Mr. Joe Pasternak who coaxed his appearance, which let's us know that the concert was around the time that our Dino's first major big screen effort, "Ten Thousand Bedrooms" was bein' released as Pasternak was the producer for that effort.

We are likes totally totally thrilled to be able to share this with all youse Dino-holics, just wishes that it hadn't taken so so long to uncover.  Also, as you will read  below the sharer of this Dino-treasure, Mr. Gordon Skene discovered "the master tapes from the concert)  sitting on a shelf in a garage the better part of forty years before I got the call to "take the junk away".

We wanna express our deepest of deep Dino-appreciato to Skene for sharin' this huge huge Dino-discovery with his readership and eventually with all youse pallies.  Likes makes us be in wholehearted wonderment of  what more Dino-gold is out there waitin' to be mined.  To checks this out in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  And, likes sometimes pallies the vid we have placed below chooses not to function....if this happens to you, simply click on the tag of this Dino-post to listen at the original site.

 We remain.

Yours in the deepest of deep Dino-happiness,

Dino Martin Peters


Newstalgia New Years Eve Music Special - Dean Martin - Frank Sinatra - Hungarian Relief Concert 1956

I can't think of a better way to end up the year than with a special, rare, never-heard-before performance of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin (not together unfortunately, but Dino's in fine form) from the Hungarian Relief Fundraiser put on in Los Angeles on November 30, 1956.

For some reason, this recording has never been issued anywhere - the master tapes sitting on a shelf in a garage the better part of forty years before I got the call to "take the junk away".
Dean had just broken up his act with Jerry Lewis and Sinatra was going through a career change that took would take a dramatic upturn as well. If memory serves (but don't hold me to it), this predates the Ratpack by about a year.

In any event, this is a rare recording and you get to hear it first.

Thanks to everyone for a great 2009 - especially the crew at C&L. It's all been good fun, dusting off history.

Happy New Year - try and stay sane in the meantime. Wait til 2010!

 RENAISSANCE MAN


STYLE ICON: DEAN MARTIN
angelflair

Dean Martin was one of the most fashionable men in Hollywood. Back when everyone dressed up for every occasion, he managed to be unique, yet classic – his unique red handkerchief with his tuxedo, for example. He exemplified class, style and sophistication no longer appreciated today.

Born Dino Paul Crocetti, Dean Martin is remembered as the quintessential man’s man – the “King of Cool” and was one of the most successful entertainers of the 20th century.

Martin’s big break came when he teamed up with legendary comedian Jerry Lewis to create Martin & Lewis. The duo starred in several hit films together before breaking up in 1956. He then went on to a solo career (TV, film, music) and recorded such hits as Everybody Loves Somebody, That’s Amore and the cult favourite, Mambo Italiano. He also starred in several films, including the original Ocean’s 11 which took place in a vastly different Las Vegas than we know today.

Although he enjoyed much success and had a variety of roles, Martin was not a workaholic. In fact, during his popular variety program The Dean Martin Show, he only worked 2 hours a week – when the show was being aired. He rarely rehearsed…he preferred the spontaneity. If there was a mistake, they wouldn’t re-shoot, it was kept in.

He had it all – the looks, the charm, the sophistication – many traits that seem to be falling out of favour with the modern man. A man that always made people smile, Dean Martin set a standard for how a man should carry himself.

Style icons: Dean Martin, the king of cool

MATTIA TARANTINI

IF IT COMES TO STYLE ONE CAN NOT TALK ABOUT DEAN MARTIN, ONE OF THE FASHION ICONS OF TODAY IF SHE WOULD EAT ALL AT BREAKFAST, BETWEEN A DRINK AND ANOTHER. LET US SEE WHAT WERE THE STYLE ELEMENTS OF WHAT EVEN ELVIS CALLED "THE KING OF COOL."

947

 "I will be even The King of Rock 'n' Roll, but Dean Martin is and will always be The King of Cool".

Words of Elvis Presley. It was not the only one who thinks so. Dean Martin was the idol and friend, colleague and drinking buddy, Frank Sinatra, and even Jerry Lewis, which he said "Dean was always the refined, the fig tree, the higher grade." It was a playboy, no doubt. And the "Playboy" magazine elected him "the coolest man ever lived on Earth" .

In short, Dean Martin was an absolute icon of coolness, coolness, fashion without knowing of it. An increasingly fashionable, charismatic, charming, stylish: we can also invent adjectives to describe Dean Martin and his style, and yet would not be enough. The truth is that you would eat for breakfast the " fashion icons " today, of which perhaps laugh, seeing hair on, Buff and tattooed. He was an old school. But what were the basic elements of the style of Dean Martin?

CLASSIC BUT NOT STUFFY

dino1

The style of Dean Martin (which, remember, was Italian and his name was Dino Crocetti origins) was classic: he lived for most of his life with a tuxedo wearing, on stage and off stage. A classic style but not stuffy, brought lightly, a classic-casual, disenchanted as it was Martin. A gentleman ready to make merry. So almost always shirt, of course, and almost always white, but often open or with the sleeves rolled up, or up or polo neck sweaters.

THE SMILE

Dean_Martin_Photo_10

Style are not just the clothes that you wear, but how you wear. It 'a way of being. The character. An attitude. And Dean Martin, actor and cantente, was always smiling. perhaps not always happy, always smiling but yes conveyed a sense of fun, fooling around, the "who cares" with that face sly that even today is absolutely captivating. Dean Martin was not pretty, but liked. Perhaps because he was always smiling.

THE CIGARETTE
 rat-pack-1940x1291


We know, smoking is bad and so is not cool. Yet we must admit that one of the fundamental components of the Dean Martin-style was the cigarette constantly between the fingers. There's a photo where he does not have the cigarette, which were in their hands even on stage while singing. Tuxedo with a tuxedo.

THE DRINK

6054_person_gross

The Dean Martin's hands were always occupied primarily by three things: the cigarette, as we have seen, the microphone when he sang, and especially a glass. It is probably the best person photographed with a drink in hand in the history of mankind. His style was that of nightclubs, of Las Vegas, who was partying all night, for work.

Icone di stile: Dean Martin, the king of cool

MATTIA TARANTINI

SE SI PARLA DI STILE NON SI PUÒ NON PARLARE DI DEAN MARTIN, UNO CHE LE ICONE FASHION DI OGGI SE LE SAREBBE MANGIATE TUTTE A COLAZIONE, TRA UN DRINK E L’ALTRO. VEDIAMO QUALI ERANO GLI ELEMENTI DI STILE DI QUELLO CHE PERFINO ELVIS DEFINÌ “IL RE DEL COOL”.
947“Io sarò anche The King of Rock’n’ Roll, ma Dean Martin è e sarà sempre The King of Cool”.

Parole di Elvis Presley. E non era il solo a pensarla così. Dean Martin era l’idolo, nonché amico, collega e compagno di bevute, di Frank Sinatra, e anche di Jerry Lews, che di lui diceva “Dean era sempre quello raffinato, il fico, quello più in alto di grado”. Era un playboy, senza dubbio. E proprio la rivista “Playboy” lo ha eletto “l’uomo più cool mai vissuto sulla Terra”.


Insomma, Dean Martin era un’icona assoluta di coolness, figaggine, fashion senza sapere di esserlo. Uno sempre alla moda, carismatico, affascinante, stiloso: possiamo anche inventare degli aggettivi per descrivere Dean Martin e il suo stile, eppure non basterebbero. La verità è che si mangerebbe a colazione le “icone fashion” di oggi, di cui forse riderebbe, vedendoli depilati, palestrati e tatuati. Lui era uno vecchia scuola. Ma quali erano gli elementi fondamentali dello stile di Dean Martin?

CLASSICO MA NON FORMALE

Lo stile di Dean Martin (che, lo ricordiamo, era di origini italiane e si chiamava Dino Crocetti) era classico: ha vissuto per gran parte della vita con uno smoking indosso, sul palco e fuori dal palco. Uno stile classico ma non formale, portato con leggerezza, un classico-casual, disincantato come lo era Martin. Un gentleman pronto a fare baldoria. Quindi quasi sempre camicia, ovviamente, e quasi sempre bianca, ma spesso aperta o con le maniche arrotolate, oppure maglioni a collo alto o polo.

IL SORRISO

Lo stile non sono solo i vestiti che si portano, ma come si portano. E’ un modo di essere. Il carattere. Un atteggiamento. E Dean Martin, attore e cantente, era sempre sorridente. Non sempre felice forse, ma sempre sorridente sì: trasmetteva una sensazione di divertimento, di cazzeggio, di “chi se ne frega” con quella faccia sorniona che ancora oggi risulta assolutamente accattivante. Dean Martin non era bello, eppure piaceva. Forse anche perché era sempre sorridente.

LA SIGARETTA

Lo sappiamo, fumare fa male e quindi non è cool. Eppure dobbiamo ammettere che una delle componenti fondamentali dello stile di Dean Martin era la sigaretta perennemente tra le dita. Non c’è una foto dove non abbia la sigaretta, che tenevano in mano perfino sul palco mentre cantava. Smoking con lo smoking.

IL DRINK

Le mani di Dean Martin erano sempre occupate fondamentalmente da tre cose: la sigaretta, come abbiamo visto, il microfono quando cantava, e soprattutto un bicchiere. Probabilmente è la persona più fotografata con un drink in mano nella storia dell’umanità. Il suo stile era quello dei locali notturni, di Las Vegas, di chi faceva festa tutta la notte, per lavoro.
