.....a younger audience is going to be more interested in a Kendrick Lamar review than they would be a piece on the life and times of Dean Martin.

Hey pallies, likes we are always totally totally thrilled and have the most awesome appreciation for each and every time we find the name of our most beloved Dino bein' lifted up on the ol' world wide web.  And, likes we does tries to share the vast variety of wonderful ways that our Dino is remarkably referenced by bloggers scribin' on an ubber unendin' lists of topics.

Today we takes you to a powerful pad where the swank subjects of music and writin' are marvelously mixed together.  The blog is tagged "Learn to Music - Write about music, learn about writing (about music)," where a pallie tagged David holds forth.  Speakin' 'bout his pad, music journalism scriber David sez it is " part blog, part interactive course, all guided towards bringing out the music journalist in you.

Likes in one of David's recent posts tagged, "Writing for Your Audience," he referenced our one and only Dino as you will note below.  It's in a section of the blog post accentin' the importance of knowin' the age of the readers you are most addressin'.  While we are not totally totally in agreement with David's perspective, we do understand where he is comin' from.  Typically one would expect that our Dino's devotees would be older in age rather then younger 'cause his career spans the mid '40's to the end of the '80's.

But, over time we have been perfectly proud to share many many Dino-grams showin' just how many of today's youth are turnin' on to our Dino.  Most recently we had a true Deanager who tags themself "Mabel Ƥιηєѕ"  patter us sayin'  "I love Martin's music and ever since I stumbled upon this blog, I gotta say this blog is amazing. (And I'm only a teen.)"  When we quired her 'bout how she came to come into the Dino-fold she shared,  "Hi Sir, thank you for your kind comment. :)
I wanted to listen to several Christmas songs in December last year and for 'Let it snow', I fell in love with Dino's version. I decided to search up on Martin and started listening to some of his other songs.
It was that love for his cover of 'Let it snow' that started my obsession with the handsome Martin. I'm so glad I got to know this great guy. :)  Youse can find "Mabel's comments at the end of the post found  HERE.  Miss "Mabel" is simply one extraordinary example of a ton of today's youths whose Dino-devotion has been shared here at ilovedinomartin.

So, we sez our thanks to David for pickin' our most beloved Dino to reference in his blog post out of all the many and varied artists of our Dino's era.  We just know that his kind Dino-reference will be the startin' point for many pallies to join the throngs of  folks every day findin' there way to our Dino as Miss "Mabel" has.  And, likes we are most pleased to use today's Dino-gram to celebrate the huge huge numbers of today's nouveau hipsters who are followin' in the Dino-way.

Likes to read music journalism blogger David's post in total, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-message.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

Writing for Your Audience

These types of assumptions can also extend to your content; while it’s not 100% it’s still pretty likely that a younger audience is going to be more interested in a Kendrick Lamar review than they would be a piece on the life and times of Dean Martin. The opposite is also true; an older audience is less likely to care about modern Billboard chart analysis than they would about, say, an interview with Leslie West. These are assumptions, yes, but they’re fair assumptions to make.

From The Teachin's Of Our Most Beloved Dino

Hey pallies, likes today we are deeply deeply delighted to share with all youse Dino-holics one of our most beloved Dino's teachin's.  We found it at the tumblr pad tagged 'THE RAKE IN BRIEF," the superbly swankest of swank man's fashion image site 'round on the ol' 'net.

In doin' a little investigatin' of this stellar site, we found this extremely edifyin' thoughts 'bout what it means to be "The Rake:".....“The modern man longs for a cultured world of exquisite - yet unabashedly masculine- refinement. He longs for the world of The Rake.”  Powerfully pontificatin' further, we digs these stated qualities of "The Rake":

“Who is The Rake?” you ask.

He is classically elegant.
He is well groomed.
An erudite gentleman.
Enjoys the finer things in life.

Likes, to our way of thinkin' these qualities perfectly fit the swingin' style of our most beloved Dino, and thus we are not at all surprised to find one of his remarkably reflective thoughts posts at this pad.

Below is one of, what we consider to be, an incredible image of our coolly classic Dino.  Likes we believe this powerful pose of our Dino is taken from the 1964 Rat Pack big screen epic, "Robin And The Seven Hoods,"  with our Dino, dressed in tux, his ever present Kent cigarette in hand, obviously  deeply deep in thought.

And, the pallies at "THE RAKE IN BRIEF" have marvelously matched this powerfully potent pose with one of our Dino's truthful teachin's.  Likes our wise 'n wonderful Dino shares from the deepest of deep depth of his experiences these coolly crafted words, "“In regular clothes, I’m a nobody,” said Dean Martin. “In a tuxedo, I’m a star.”

We here at ilovedinomartin are always energetically eager to share more of the life and teachin's of our King of Cool, our Master of Hip, our Ruler of Randy with Dino-devotees of all types and stripes, all ages and stages and all of us desire to grow deeper and deeper in the way of our most beloved Dino!

Likes we shouts out our awesome appreciato to the pallies at "THE RAKE IN BRIEF" for coolly choosin' to draw deeply from wise words of our Dino to share with their remarkable readership and help many others to know, love, and honor our one and only Dino.  To checks this out in it's original source, likes simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram

I take advantage of my Soundcloud account to restore a little exposure to my old mixtapes including that devoted to Dean Martin. The others will follow, I'm doing all the uploader again. Good listening.


Some discs bought at the same garage in the suburbs (they had to make a local Rat Pack ...), beautiful pieces, it did not take much more to dedicate my new mixtape to one and the same artist.

Today Dean Martin, old memories of childhood of hilarity in front of his films with Jerry Lewis, a beautiful mouth of rital not clear and this playful voice to the possible.

I really enjoyed crafting it.

Ladies and gentleman, please take care of yourself

 Je profite de mon compte Soundcloud pour redonner un peu d'exposition à mes anciennes mixtapes dont celle ci consacrée à Dean Martin. Les autres suivront, je suis entrain de toutes les uploader à nouveau. Bonne écoute.


Quelques disques achetés au même vide-grenier en banlieue (ils ont du se faire un Rat Pack local…), des morceaux magnifiques, il ne m’en a pas fallu beaucoup plus pour consacrer ma nouvelle mixtape à un seul et même artiste.

Aujourd’hui Dean Martin, des vieux souvenirs d’enfance d’hilarité devant ses films avec Jerry Lewis, une belle gueule de rital pas nette et cette voix espiègle au possible.

J’ai réellement pris un plaisir fou à l’élaborer.

Ladies and gentleman, please take care of yourself
