Besame Mucho is one of the most popular songs of all time, being recorded by an extraordinarily diverse range of singers and instrumentalists. It was written in 1940 by a sixteen-year-old Mexican girl called Consuelo Velasquez. The song was a steamy expression of a young girl’s longing to be kissed. The title of the song means “kiss me alot” and it stirred the imaginations of men and women all over the world. In 1944 a young American singer named Kitty Kallen sang the song with Jimmy Dorsey and his orchestra and it stayed for six weeks on the charts of Billboard Magazine. Another key figure in the story of Besame Mucho is Sunny Skylar, composer and arranger who sang with big bands in the nieteen forties. He wrote music and lyrics for many popular songs including: Amor, And So To Sleep Again and Love Me With All Your Heart. There are other translations of the song but Skylar’s seems to be a favorite. Here are the lyrics as interpreted by Sunny Skylar:BÈsame, bÈsame muchoEach time I cling to your kiss, I hear music divineBÈsame muchoHold me my darling and say that you’ll always be mineThis joy is something newMy arms enfolding youNever knew this thrill beforeWhoever thought I’d beHolding you close to meWhispering “It’s you I adore”Dearest oneIf you should leave meEach little dream would take wing, and my life would be throughBÈsame muchoLove me forever and make all my dreams come trueAt the time of writing the song Consuelo insisted she had never been kissed but she certainly sounds like she knew what she wanted. I think Skylar was wise in not translating the words “besane mucho” into literal English like “kiss me much” or “kiss me alot”.Just to get the feel of the song, here are Consuelo’s original words:And here are the original lyrics by Consuelo Velazquez:BÈsame, bÈsame muchoComo si fuera esta noche la ltima vezBÈsame muchoQue tengo miedo perderte, perderte otra vezQuiero tenerte muyCerca, mirarme en tusOjos, verte junto a mÌPiensa que tal vezMaÒana yo ya estarÈLejos, muy lejos de tiBÈsame, bÈsame muchoComo si fuera esta noche la ltima vezBÈsame muchoQue tengo miedo perderte, perderte despuÈsIf you are a guitar player and you know how to play the A minor, D minor, A major and E major chords you will easily be able to play Besame Mucho. As for the composer of the song, she was supposed to have been a classical concert pianist having learnt the piano when she was four years old. Consuelo wrote many other popular Mexican songs including: Amar y vivir, Verdad amarga, Franqueza, Que seas feliz, Cachito and Enamorada.The list of vocal and instrumental artists who have recorded Besame Mucho goes on and on. Some notable ones are: Andrea Bocelli, Artie Shaw, The Beatles, Charles Aznavour, Chris Isaak, Edith Piaf, The Dead Brothers, Leslie Nielsen(!!), Sammy Davis Jr and Stan Getz.For lovers of acoustic guitar, Besame Mucho is included on an album of latin standards by flamenco guitarist, Paco de Lucia. Other tracks on the CD include: Malaguena, Mantilla De Feria, Granada, Manha De Carnaval, Perfidia, La Virgen De La Macarena and Moliendo Cafe. Paco is one of the world’s greatest guitarists and it would be well worth your while to have a listen to this excellent CD. Meanwhile, good luck with your own efforts at playing this luscious song.
As I have grown older the idea of wearing the stylish jeans of the younger generation has never really been my thing. I don’t exactly have a pot belly, but these jeans seem to demand a six pack stomach and alas, this is not the case with me. Besides, they look so uncomfortable and I wonder if they get any lower when you try to sit down. Oh well, not too be too outdated, I will wear the mid-rise jeans.
The older I get, the more I am constantly wrestling with the idea that I am no longer the young stud I use to be. Jeans are one of the clothing items that I of course still wear a lot of, but my style is much different than that of my sons.
I have never professed to being the king of fashion by any means, but I’m trying to balance my own body needs with the current fashion trends. I definitely don’t want to wear the low rise baggy jeans that I’m seeing all over the television, they just will not flatter me or look appropriate for my age. But I like to try and look as good as possible with what I have to work with.
I have found that the regular rise of jeans or tight jeans works really well for me and helps to camouflage the fact that my stomach is slowly growing with age. I work out and stay healthy but nothing I do seems to be able to totally get rid of this little belly I have. But I guess that is just part of growing old.
Low rise jeans are pretty cool looking and I’m sure many of us middle aged men have at least tried a pair of them out, but I still have not seen anyone over the age of 40 that they really looked ok on.
My son’s on the other hand absolutely love low rise jeans and I think that is pretty much all they own. Every time we are at the mall they are asking for another pair of jeans. It is an anomaly that they have so many jeans but continue to need more. But I guess since jeans are the current fashion trend there is really nothing my wife or I can do about it.
Low rise jeans are a great invention, but they really are strictly for women and the younger crowd, I’ll stick to my regular jeans.
Recipient of widespread critical acclaim and winner of 12 Teen Choice Awards during its five-year run, Dawson’s Creek was one of the most widely followed dramas among American teens.

The two have a clique of high school friends among whom are Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson), Jennifer “Jen” Lindley (Michelle Williams), Andrea “Andie” McPhee (Meredith Monroe), and Jack McPhee (Kerr Smith).

Nominated for six Golden Globes and seven Emmys, including Outstanding Series – Comedy, Sanford And Son became one of the first shows in television history to be almost entirely centered around African-American characters. Modeled after the British TV show Steptoe And Son, the series showcased the underappreciated talents of comic genius Redd Foxx (whose skin color and bad language prevented him from becoming a superstar decades earlier). The brainchild of All In The Family creator Norman Lear, Sanford And Son signaled the beginning of a decade of sitcom classics for the prolific 1970′s TV writer – Maude (1972), Good Times (1974), and The Jeffersons (1975) being the others. Wrought with memorable one-liners and well-timed humor, Sanford And Son was a Top 10 Nielsen rated show every year in which it aired except for its final season (ranking a respectable #27)ÖSanford And Son, set in the Watts district of Los Angeles, follows the life of Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx), a 65-year-old African-American junk dealer who shares his business with his 34-year-old son Lamont (Demond Wilson). With Fred’s wife Elizabeth having passed away twenty years earlier, he often evokes Lamont’s sympathy by clutching his heart and proclaiming, “Oh, I’m coming to join you Elizabeth!” But Fred always survives those near fatal heart attacks, continuing to disperse sarcastic putdowns (often directed at his sister-in-law Esther) and racist stereotypical remarks aimed against whites and Hispanics (especially Lamont’s friend Julio). Using guilt to manipulate his ambitious son into staying and helping run the salvage shop instead of pursuing other endeavors, Fred Sanford spends most of his days lounging around the house (his junk store and home are one and the same) and hanging out with his friends – Grady, Melvin, and BubbaÖ Well-written and hilarious, Sanford & Son is comedian Redd Foxx at his absolute bestÖThe Sanford And Son DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the series premiere “Crossed Swords” in which Lamont purchases a collectible porcelain figure from a silent movie star for $15. When he and Fred get the statuette appraised, they determine that they can fetch a bundle for it if they put it up for auction, but while at the auction, the two decide to pose as buyers to bid up the price, a decision that ends up costing themÖ Other notable episodes from Season 1 include “The Copper Caper” in which Fred and Lamont purchase their own copper from a man who’s been stealing the metal all across town, and “A Pad for Lamont” in which Lamont decides to move into his own apartment for privacy reasons. At first, Fred is upset – until he learns he enjoys having some time to himself
Based on Candace Bushnell’s best-selling book, S And The City became one of the most successful and widely lauded original HBO series ever. Premiering in the summer of 1998, it follows the lives of female friends in their late-20s/early-30s who live and work in New York City. With a clever wit, the show’s plot focuses on the varying love relationships and lifestyle problems encountered by each woman in the clique. With an talented and beautiful cast, the show developed an almost borderline fanatic followingÖThe S And The City (Season 2) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in which Carrie, having broken up with Mr. Big, starts dating a member of the New York Yankees. However, when they run into Mr. Big, she realizes she’s not really over him. Meanwhile, Miranda is tired of her friends talking about nothing but men, and Samantha thinks she’s found the man of her dreams – at least until she gets him in bedÖ Other notable episodes from Season 2 include “Four Women and a Funeral” in which Carrie’s reflections on the shortness of life following friend’s death lead to a reunion with Mr. Big, and “The Man, The Myth, The V” in which Carrie urges Mr. Big to get to know her friends better and Samantha dates a wealthy man in his seventiesBelow is a list of episodes included on the S And The City (Season 2) DVD:Episode 13 (Take Me Out to the Ballgame) Air Date: 06-06-1999Episode 14 (The Awful Truth) Air Date: 06-13-1999Episode 15 (The Freak Show) Air Date: 06-20-1999Episode 16 (They Shoot Single People, Don’t They?)

The #1 Nielsen rated program from 1971 to 1976, All In The Family is quite simply one of the greatest television programs in history. Inspired by The Honeymooners and The Flintstones, All In The Family features its own loud-mouthed, opinionated blowhard sporting a hidden soft and sensitive side. Like Ralph Kramden and Fred Flintstone, Archie Bunker fulfills his role to absolute perfection, and the result is TV magic. Well-written and outright hilarious, All In The Family broke ground in the 70′s with its willingness to tackle all the social issues and societal taboos of its day. Topics included racism, bigotry, sexism, homosexuality, death, and other namby-pam, socialist and liberal-feminist ideals (or at least that’s how Archie would put it!) A titan among television sitcoms, All In The Family spawned a pair of shows which topped the ratings in their own right – Maude and The JeffersonsÖCarroll O’Connor plays the role of Archie Bunker, the titular head of the Bunker household. Loud and crass, Archie freely dispenses his bigoted remarks and ignorant comments from the living room of his Queens, New York home. Joining Archie is his loving and ditsy wife Edith (Jean Stapelton), his beautiful and progressive daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers), and her ultra-liberal husband Mike (Rob Reiner) whom Archie refers to as “Meathead”. As Gloria and Mike’s modern ideas clash with Archie’s old school beliefs, all hell breaks loose in the Bunker household, but the Bunkers don’t spend all their time arguing as they’re inevitably held together by the immutable bond of loveÖThe All In The Family DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere “Meet the Bunkers” in which it’s Edith and Archie’s anniversary, and Edith manages to drag a reluctant Archie to church. Meanwhile, Mike and Gloria work overtime to create a celebration the Bunkers will never forgetÖ Other notable episodes from Season 1 include “Archie Gives Blood” in which Archie refuses to participate in the blood drive because he’s afraid of having his blood mixed with that of another race, and “Edith Has Jury Duty” in which Edith’s conviction to hold steadfast as the lone juror in favor of a defendant’s acquittal proves correct when the true culprit comes forward

I know when the air starts to cool down and the nights start getting shorter that my favorite and busiest time of the year is almost here. I have been working in the Best Haunted House in Ogden industry for a long time now. It makes me laugh how even the smell of construction reminds me of the haunted industry. We are building a lot of new cool things. We are vamping up our zombie paintball safari style shooting. We are making this more and more intense all the time. What a fun opportunity it is to go and shot real actors with paintballs. I have been working hard in my favorite Best Haunted House in Salt Lake City industry getting things ready for a new year. One of the new things we are building this year is a real pirate ship in our swamp. That’s right people will walk on our dock and enter into a real pirate ship. The ship’s deck will only be 10 feet by 20 feet, but the boat will be around 40 feet long. They will enter the captain’s quarters and there will be an intense scare waiting for them inside. Then they will exit the pirate ship by walking the plank into a fog covered area. This makes the process feel like you are walking into the unknown. I am excited for the new season at the Best haunted house in Utah industry. We are going to have a really busy and fun haunted attraction this year. I hope everyone gets a chance to stop by and see what it is we have done.

So go on, watch the video and laugh your heart out and be thankful that it\’s not you in there.
