Hey pallies, likes today dudes we venture to the blog "The Art Life" where writer Carrie Miller has wisely chosen to lift up the life and times of our Dino in the post, "Ten Essentials: Drinking." Likes while all true Dino-holics woulda made our Dino numero uno on this top ten list, Miller has placed our great man in the very respectable number 2 slot.
While I certainly coulda never agree with Carrie on the statement, "I’m definitely with Team Sinatra," cause how coulda anyone choose the frankie over our King of Cool?!?!? I so so appreciate the Dino-thought, "Dino makes you want a Scotch on the rocks and a cigarette."
ilovedinomartin sez our thanks for liftin' up the name of our beloved Dino in her creative writin' and helpin' readers to come to a better knowledge and respect for our Dino. To view the whole post, just clicks on the tagg of this here Dino-post.
Ten Essentials: Drinking
Posted by Carrie Miller • April 28, 2011 •
Carrie Miller raises a wrist to the greatest exponents - fictional and real - of the art of drinking...
2. Dean Martin Personally, I’m into dichotomies. The world can always be split in two: girl/boy, cat/dog, Dean/Frank. While I’m definitely with Team Sinatra – the phrasing, the longing, the broads - Dean Martin had his drinking shtick down, baby. He made being a drunk cool when it could still be cool. Like Katherine Hepburn makes you want to wear pants, Dino makes you want a Scotch on the rocks and a cigarette. There’s been long-standing controversy over whether there was alcohol in his drink or if it was just some phony baloney stage act. Who cares? Listen to the man himself: “I don’t have a drinking problem. I drink, I get drunk, I fall down. No problem!”
