Hey pallies, likes all you dudes knows how much I digs the fact that our Dino, as he grew older, simply loved to "put the accent on youth," and thus how cool it is to feature 'nother of today's youth who is puttin' the accent on our Dino!
Today we visit with Miss Ruth Nineke at her blog, "notes of a writer & a romantic," where Nineke proclaims to the entire universe that she " fell in love with Dean Martin in 2004." Miss Ruth's bio tells us that she "is a native New Yorker. She started spelling three and four syllable words in the mean afterschool program of one of BK's finest catholic schools when she was just in kindergarten, serving detention with her troublesome 7th grade big sister. Creative Writing assignments were slaughtered from day one and rarely was she ever without a book in hand; from 1st grade to 12th. After high school romance novels were replaced with bottle necks and cigarettes, and after that marble notebooks and black ink pens."
Indeed if you investigate Miss Nineke's blog pad, you find that she is a often published author of fiction as well as poetry. The quality of her writin' is made clear by the wondrous way she writes 'bout our most beloved Dino..."Dean Martin's voice is like a male siren's call to a fantastic corner of time, where I can slip in and forget the shadiness that permeates the present world, from global politics to personal acquaintances."
ilovedinomartin is pumped to be able to share with all you pallies 'nother youthful talented professional who is passionately pure in her devotion of our great man. Simply thrillin' to learn of 'nother up-and-comin' lady who is likes totally totally sold out to our Dino.
Kudos to Miss Ruth Nieneke for sharin' her deep and true lovin' of our Dino with her readership. To read this in it's original format, just clicks on the tag of this Dino-report. Keeps lovin' our lovable Dino! Dino-fevered, DMP
Morning Wood: Dean Martin

That's a real fine quality-looking sweater, huh?
THIS GUY! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I don't even really need to write about what makes him a babe. First of all it'd be kinda weird to start swooning over his tan, smile, or thick head of hair considering he's been dead for 17 years. But, I'm not completely superficial, you know. Most of what makes a babe a babe is their talent and personality.
I fell in love with Dean Martin in 2004 when I discovered the Rat Pack and played their songs all spring and summer long. These guys were straight up alcoholic goofballs. Kudos to them for getting paid to be sloshy, while chain smoking, and singing. I mean, if that isn't the dream, I don't know what is. And what's more attractive than a talented guy who knows how to let loose and have a good time? What's more attractive than anybody enjoying themselves?
I'm a romantic old soul. Romantic crooning from your grandmother's hayday is all sorts of right up my alley. I mean where is the ROMANCE in music today? Sure there's the Romantic style of art of which I'm clearly a student and participant, but what about the Romance of love-making, or sweet seduction, or deep, heart-felt, heady, intoxicating infatuation? Where are the singers with strong voices and slow gentle delivery? I mean these lyrics:
"How I love to hear the choir in the chapel, in the moonlight as they sing 'oh, promise me, forever be mine.'"
"I'd cry like a baby if you told me good-bye. I'd feel like a snowball on the 4th of July. If you ever said you were leaving for good, I'd weep like a weeping willow, honest I would."
"If you'a gonna be a square you'a ainta gonna go nowhere."
"Don't wonder if you want to come back, just come running home to me and let me feel that thrill. Cause I'm the one who told you I would love you till forever, and I will."
I know the oldies glamorize the past and make things seem different than they were, but I think everyone's memories are always a little rose-tinted, sprinkled with the pixie-dust of the past perfect subjunctive. We want to be able to remember what was, and what's gone in the most beautiful and ideal light possible, whether or not it was always that way. Sometimes, when I listen to old music it's easier to imagine a sweet, and lovely life filled with good, clean fun and lots of easy-going folly, etc.
Dean Martin's voice is like a male siren's call to a fantastic corner of time, where I can slip in and forget the shadiness that permeates the present world, from global politics to personal acquaintances.
Imaginary boners for Dean.
