Hey pallies, likes I gotta 'fess up dudes that I ain't been so excited to share a Dino-gram with youse for the longest of longest Dino-times. Likes we all knows how much our most beloved Dino loved to put the accent on youth and how our King of Cool himself coined the term Deanager to apply to the masses of youth in his day that dug our great man to the greatest of great Dino-extent.
Well today ilovedinomartin is thrilled to report to youse 'bout a work of fiction aimed at the Teen Scene that has the main male teenage character who is "a great fan of Dean Martin." From the yalsc blog, "The Hub - Your Connection To Teen Reads" comes a post from Miss Diane Colson that reviews "The Spectacular Now" by Mr. Tim Tharp. And as Miss Colson sez 'bout Tharp's main character..." Sutter Keely, the irrepressible party boy who narrates author Tim Tharp’s The Spectacular Now, is one of YA lit’s most poignant characters. He’s good-hearted and funny- as long as he has his flask of whiskey near at hand."
So it woulda comes as no surprise dude that Sutter is a real Deanager. Indeed Miss Diane quotes from the tome..... "As Sutter says, “The Rat Pack consisted of these ultra-suave playboy singers from back in the days before hippie bands changed everything - Dean, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. These guys knew how to party. They tore Las Vegas to pieces.” (p. 115-116).
Now pallies, likes how totally totally rad is that dudes.....the life and times of our Dino bein' lifted up in a most popular of popular of teen reads! This is certainly guaranteed to draw many many of today's nouveau hipsters into the Dino-know and helps 'em to fall head over heels for our great great man! And, likes besides that dudes as Miss Colson points out, "The Spectacular Now" has just been recently released as a big screen effort....and just hopin' that the flick will carry over Sutter Keely Deanger statis it it's flick form. Likes 'cause this will awesomely spread Dino devotion far and wide and help even more to fan the flames of the Dino-revolution all the more.
ilovedinomartin salutes Mr. Tim Tharp for bein' so cool as to hugely feature our great man in his great teen scene tome, and to Miss Diane Colson for puttin' us on to this fab Dino-news and for creatin' such a cool cool Dino-reflection includin' Dino-pix, prose, croon clip, and vid clip as well. Words truly can not 'press the thrill of knowin' that many many more of today's youth are bein' drawn into the Dino-fold.
