    Cancel any upcoming flights to the moon, because living in Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack home is a great reason to stay on Earth. Named "Villa Maggio," Sinatra's hideaway from Hollywood is on the market for $3.9 million. The Palm Desert, California home was a spot where Sinatra and fellow Rat Pack members Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop would hang out and get some R&R from their fans in a private location.
  • Youtube Video of a Supercool Ronald Reagan hanging out with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin

    Here is a youtube video of Ronald Reagan hanging out with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG5WAFzwlIA This video has inspired me to make some observations. One of the greatest mistakes conservatives make in analyzing the 1980 election, is to exaggerate the weakness of Jimmy Carter in the 1980 election. I am not a Carter-hater, and I think Carter was a better President and stronger leader than several American Presidents, including Obama, Clinton, James Buchanan, etc. To say that Reagan won his election victories because his opponents were weak, is like saying Muhammad Ali became the heavyweight boxing champion of...

    My introduction to Frank Sinatra came by way of “New York, New York” (1979) and “My Way” (1969). Needless to say, I was not a fan. Even as a pre-teen, the over-produced bombast came across as someone, dare I say an old man, trying too hard. Besides, I was born in 1966 and came of age in the early 80s. By law, I was required to worship Springsteen, Seger, Zeppelin, Petty, Van Halen, Def Leppard, and AC/DC, not some crooner belting out anthems about how it’s up to you my way. With a memory as bad as mine, I don’t have...

    On November 19, 2014 Google commemorated the 57th birthday of Ofra Haza with a Google Doodle. Who? Also in 2014, Google Doodle honored the 151st birthday of Annie Jump Cannon. Who? A few days after that, Wassily Kandinsky was similarly recognized with a Google Doodle on his 148th birthday. Who? Well today is the 100th birthday of Frank Sinatra so obviously Google Doodle must honor Ol' Blue Eyes. If you thought that you would be wrong. Relative nonentities receive honors from Google but when it comes to a major cultural icon on his 100th birthday, they amazingly chose to ignore...

    Frank is just like you. Just like me. Only bigger. George Schlatter, a friend Lets get one thing straight. There cant be another Frank. These days, you dont operate on that plane and get away with it. Was he in the Mob? Was he an informer? Did he ruin Ava Gardner, sleep with Marilyn, throw a plate against a restaurant wall just because they cooked the pasta too long? Come on, al dente! Act like that today and youd be TMZd faster than you can tweet Alec Baldwin. But thats just behavior. Flip on your TV and youll understand...

    Tributes to two of the most famous American entertainers of the 20th century serve as a reminder of how fame flees. The entertainers are Bing Crosby and Bob Hope; the reminders are the documentary American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered, which had its premiere last week (and will run again on Dec. 26 ) on PBS, and Hope: Entertainer of the Century, a new biography by Richard Zoglin. Neither Crosby nor Hope have much cachet with contemporary consumers of art and culture, but the accounts of their careers make convincing cases that their contributions still influence their respective fields, even if...

It's his first since 2012'sTempest.It's out February 3 via Columbia, and you can check out the full tracklist below. Dylan produced it under his Jack Frost alias. Listen to "Full Moon and Empty Arms" below. In a press release, Dylan said: It was a real privilege to make this album. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a five-piece...

    Young Ronan Farrow of MSNBC who won a Cronkite Journalism Award three days after appearing on the air seems to have learned a grownup word that he loves to bandy about: "nuanced." It was that word that Farrow employed to excuse the infamous remarks by Gruber that it was important to deceive the public about Obamacare. Most of you have already seen the Gruber video since Newsbusters was the first major website to feature it but for those of you in the mainstream media who still pretend like Senator Angus King to know nothing about Jonathan Gruber, you can review...

    It looks like it might be time to start playing Frank Sinatra's Gone With The Wind for Ronan Farrow. Mediate reports that Ronan Farrow might soon be Gone With The Wind because MSNBC might be cancelling Ronan Farrow next month due to lousy ratings. This contrasts sharply with the incredible media hype that greeted the announcment that Farrow would be hosting an MSNBC show last February. First let us look at the MSM gushing from the New York Times followed by the grim reality about Farrow's possible cancellation next month due to few people watching his show:

    Russia's new state news agency has just received a huge injection of cash. Rossiya Segodnya - which means Russia Today - was created by Vladimir Putin less than a year ago to promote Russia around the world. Its budget for next year is reportedly two-and-a-half times bigger than this year's - a sign of how important information is to the Kremlin. I telephoned Rossiya Segodnya to request an interview. When they put me on hold, I was astonished by the music pumped down the line. Now, what tune would you expect to hear, on hold to the news agency of...

    In March 1949, Joe DiMaggio posed in Yankee Stadium, smiling, with another famous Italian-American of his era each in his professional uniform but their friendship would not endure. On the evening of Nov. 5, 1954, the Yankee Clipper and Frank Sinatra hastily got up from dinner with friends at the Villa Capri in Hollywood and drove to a little apartment house at Kilkea Drive and Waring Avenue. DiMaggio was being divorced by Marilyn Monroe, his wife of less than a year. A private investigator, Barney Ruditsky, had called to report that she was there with another man. When...

    Is Bob Dylan channeling his inner Sinatra? Or is it his inner Rachmaninoff? On Wednesday, Mr. Dylans website, bobdylan.com, posted what appears to be the cover of the singers forthcoming album, Shadows in the Night, as well as a single track a gently sung cover of Full Moon and Empty Arms, in an ensemble dominated by a country-tinged steel guitar part. The song, written in 1945 by Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman, is based on a theme from the third movement of Rachmaninoffs Piano Concerto No. 2, and was a hit for Frank Sinatra in 1946.

    Why it qualifies: -- Because it is two members of the Rat Pack, both radiating awesomeness, looking like they might have headed to the golf course straight from another all-nighter on the Vegas Strip. -- Because both men look unfazed that they may be in violation of the 14-club limit (Really, who's going to tell the Chairman of the Board he needs to take out that extra wedge?). -- Because one of the woods in the background might not be a wood at all, but an Al Czervik-style beer tap. -- Because other than maybe Tony Gwynn, no one else...

    Mia Farrow has admitted that Frank Sinatra may be the father of her son, instead of Woody Allen. Rumours about the parentage of her son Ronan, 25, have long dogged Mia Farrow, and she finally addressed the issue in an interview saying the legendary crooner was 'possibly' his father. But on Wednesday, in reference to the claims, Ronan Farrow put in his two cents by tweeting: 'Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.'

He spoke in favor of the platform. He had the kind of speech that you really agree with if you really agree with him. He is an obviously bright man who respects the role of business and is considered by reformers to be on the right side of the school reform debate. He has a gift for memorable phrases and seems highly literate in the quick...
