…. The tuxedo didn’t work, folks, but I hadn’t had my hopes pinned too high…. It hasn’t really worked for me for the past two years but it was still worth a shot…… ole Daniel Craig changed the whole vibe of James Bond, I reckon… (.. some say for the good and others say for the bad..) …. But regardless, he changed it…. and hey, these days I don’t really like to get my shirts bloodied…. thus the failure in channeling a “correct” Mr. Bond, I am sure….

… hell, I even donned the cream silk Punjabi for a few hours… complete with the hand carved balsa wood buttons, but all to no avail….. and folks – y’all will just have to trust me on this – I seriously dig me some silk clothing….. absolutely nothing on this great, green Earth screams “feel good” like wrapping your body in silk from head to toe…….

… so today I drove to the mall, knocked back a few pints of Newcastle brown ale at The Fox & Hound in Chattanooga and then bought myself a nice, retro pair of Adidas sneakers at the mall across the street….. hey, who knew?.... they seem to have worked wonders……

… actually, that isn’t completely true….. the Adidas started the proverbial ball rolling…. But it was a song that cinched the knot, folks….. at least momentarily….. so, let me share what is my personal favorite of all the great and wonderful Sinatra songs….. behold…. (and sing along if you wish…. I certainly did…and hey, the lyrics are right there.... and this song was MEANT to be sung by gentle people who don’t have ½ the ability of Mr. Sinatra, folks…. )

…… just trust me on that….

… and while I have no actual desire to fly to the moon at this very moment, I adore the sentiment behind his crooning away with such vigor and poise…. And I love the lyrics as well…. hell, I just love everything about it.....

You need one of those Sinatra lids to go with your silks.

Craig as the new Bond has my vote. I thought Casino Royale was bitchin'

And an ataboy to the first one that can tell me what Adidas actually stands for without googling........

I love Frank...

Even more, I love listening to a song that was recorded in one take without all kinds of messing about to make it "sound" better.

I agree with Jim, you need a Sinatra hat... it would look very spiffy. *grin*

Yeah, Frank is definitely a one of a kind...though I'm more of a Tony Bennet fan myself. Sort of like how I much prefer Orbison to Elvis.

Maybe you need to get some black silk ninja gear to go with those retro tennies. Roomy hakama pants...mmmm. Sort of get your inner creative ninja going.

Adidas = Adolf ("Adi" for short) Dassler, the founder of the company.

The new Italian place I work at has several of his songs that they play through the night. They also have his picture and many other of the "rat pack" through out the bar.
Stars of their era were waaaay more classier than today's train wreaks.
