Dean Martin’s great grandchild and heir to the Martin family name

Hey pallies, likes often we finds the most interestin' Dino-details in the most unusual of places. A few ago while doin' our usual 20 or so pages of google blog Dino-searchin' we came 'cross a blog tagged "
Fangasm!  When Academics Goes To Hollywood." where Miss Lynn Zubernis scribed an in depth review of the episode, "The Weight: Sam and Dean and The Things They Carried,"  of the American fantasy horror television series "Supernatural," Miss Zubernis "is a clinical psychologist and professor at West Chester University.  She is also Area Chair for Stardom and Fandom for the Southwest Popular Culture Association."

What coulda our most beloved Dino have to do with a review of an episode of "Supernatural?"   That's a quire we asked ourselves as we waded through this lengthy prose and we found our near the end, not as part of the original essay, but as a response to the review by one of the actors starrin' in the TV series.

Miss Zubernis expresses  concern with some of the nicknamin' that goes on in the show, and Mr. Travis Aaron Wade, who plays the role of Cole Trenton responds, and there in comes the Dino-reference.  Seems that Travis is tight pallies with our most beloved Dino's most beloved grandboy pallie Alexander Gunther Martin, and in his response to Miss Zubernis he mentions not one, but two completely cool ways he has honored his friendship with Alexander.  The part of Travis' reply that is Dino-fcoused is printed below.

In the midst of all this homagin' of our most beloved Dino, we discover that Mr. Wade has been honored to be asked to be Godfather to Alexander soon to be born boypallie....the Dino-legacy continues!  You can read all the cool details below.   We are so so totally delighted that Mr. Travis Aaron Wade took the time to share his personal connection with our Dino's grandboypallie Alexander and that we coulda shares it with all youse Dino-philes.  To checks this out in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this here  Dino-report.   Dino-learnin' and Dino-growin', DMP

From Travis Aaron Wade (who plays the role of Cole Trenton on "Supernatural)

And we all know that once nicknames are given, then they stay with you the rest of your life, so even if Cole and Sam were to become best friends, he would still use those names.  No longer to degrade or harm but now out of love and respect.
Alexander Martin Picture

One of my closest friends in my life is Alex Martin.  The grandson of the legendary Dean Martin.  Recently, he and his wife Megan honored me with the title of Godfather to their unborn son who is due in 6 weeks.  When I shot Alcatraz I honored my buddy and his family name by giving the nickname “paley” to my co-star Graham Shiels.  Dean Martin use to call all his friends “paley” on a regular basis.  So this time around it seemed fitting to honor the announcement of being named Godfather to Dean Martin’s great grandchild and heir to the Martin family name, by respectfully giving the nickname “Deano” to the great character that Jensen Ackles has created in Dean Winchester.  I couldn’t imagine a bigger honor.

Another great find, DMP!

So wonderful to know that our Dino is still being honored -- even all these years after his passing.

Almost 20 years since the world lost the earthly presence of our Dino! **sigh**

But, hey, we have the technology to continue admiring the King of Cool as if he were still in the room with us.
