Happy Dino-Amore Day! Dino's last TV Interview

Hey pallies, likes it's finally here dudes, Dino-amore-day 2014, and in honor of this swankest of swank, most special of special day of amorin' our most beloved Dino, ilovedinomartin reprints our most devoted Dino-holic Ed's special ver-si-on of Ed's Epistle of Amore 2013.  Ed's prose is always so deep and rich, and likes this is no 'ception dudes!

And, like Ed shares with us the vid clip from his own private Dino-collection of our great great man's last television interveiw with Mr. Geraldo Rivera on November 25. 1994.  We certainly don't have words to express our deepest of deep Dino-appreciato to pallie Ed for his wondrously wise way of spreadin' the Dino-message of cool to all us Dino-addicted dudes!  Dino-amorin', DMP

You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by. ~James Matthew Barrie

After the cork is popped, wine poured, life’s last vino drop slides gullets way, we relish in the palisades of it's warm afterglow. Golden afterglows, embraced like loved ones in a dream, memories.

Stories. The cork, the cork has a story. As does the vino, the glass, and the bottle too! Oh if bottles could talk. Them's stories for another day, Pally.

Vintage 1917, hell of a vine to drop this grape, baby. Earthy, body full, hint of amore, leaves the pallet cool. This bottle 'o Dino been popped and celebrated.
Bottle dry, glass emptyBasking in Dino afterglow we are, baby. 

This edition of Ed's Epistle is heavy on the golden afterglow of our Dino. Deep into the treasure chest of memories lies a lone VHS tape simply scribed, "Martin on Geraldo". There was no way of foretelling this historic moment that which seemed to have been lost to history without mention. Never have I heard mention of this Dino-moment, little lone a search, or request for it.

From time to time I would view the tape, at first not thinking much of its uniqueness. As time stretched out, it began to dawn on me that the Geraldo show may have been special. So I took a glance at the bible of Dino, A Complete Guide to the "Total Entertainer" and sure enough it was his last TV interview.

 How strange, how rare, how historic. I thought by now in this day and internet age this clip would have surfaced. But is hasn't until now, only on our blog.

So this glorious Dino-casion of Dino-casions, we wish you a Happy Dino-Amore Day, and present to you

Dino's last television interview. 
Geraldo Rivera, November 25, 1994. Dino on the horn, sharp, witty, cool. Enjoy.

I remember this video and watched it when it was broadcast.

Note that he didn't whine about his health. By 1994, our Dino's health was on the wane. But the man was no whiner and never wallowed in self-pity -- a lesson there for all of us, I think.
