Actor and comedian Dom DeLuis died Monday night in his sleep at a hospital in Los Angeles.

I ADORE Dom DeLuis, and I will miss him so much. I was so heartbroken when I saw this scroll across the bottom of the news ticker. From Garry Moore to Dean Martin to Doris Day to Burt Reynolds, Dom just made all it all the better. He was so hilarious; I would watch a movie just because he was in it because I knew it would be funny. The entertainment world has lost another star that's joined the so many that are already in Heaven, and we'll dearly miss him.

Read more here, and here.

Here are what have to be my favorite things to watch Dom in:

And here's some more, for fun :D :

ROFLMAO!!! ...And that's what Dom would want ;)

Love Always,

We're always on the lookout for the greats and classics mentioned in the mainstream, and we also love Bill O'Reilly (well, I do at least lol). So, we were THRILLED when he had John Wayne as the subject of his "culture quiz" this past Tuesday, and, your humble mod nearly exploded upon seeing his weekly TV Icon was Dean Martin this Friday!

If you missed The Factor at 8PM and 11PM, be sure to tune into the Fox News Channel at 5AM to see Bill interview Dean's 4th child, Deanna, about the Roasts, the wonderful people on them, and Dean himself.

Love Always,

I hope this icon post is ok, if not let me know, and I'll delete it.

I recently made some icons of legendary NY Yankees baseball player Lou Gehrig, and the 1942 film based on his life, The Pride Of The Yankees starring Gary Cooper and Teresa Wright. I thought some of you here may enjoy them. Just follow the link below to my icon journal.

12 Lou Gehrig
05 The Pride Of the Yankees



See the rest here at sweetmoonsong.

Enjoy! :D

I just signed on AOL and look what I found:

Holy cow! I can imagine what he's been saying to Gary for providing the DNA...

Hi all!

As a couple of you have pointed out, this place had fallen by the wayside. I made a new layout to spruce us up some, so let me know what you think and if there are any bugs. As for why it's been quiet, I think it's mainly because some members can't quite figure out what to post, and because your mod here needs to come up with a way to introduce more interaction! I'd like to remind everyone here of some of the things we love to see posted: Movie, album, book, etc. reviews; questions on others' thoughts on something; pictures of collections, clothes, grandparents/family; thoughts on society; ramblings (aka fangirlling) on stars; picspams and YouTube videos; icons and graphics; anything that is classic and strictly classic! Don't be shy :).

I also don't think a little new blood would hurt us. I'm thinking of doing a sort of referal contest, or a contest for whoever promotes this place the most (but remember that darned old application applicants have to fill out--getting grunge rockers in here won't do any good lol!), or something to that effect. What would be a good prize though, I asks meself...and you guys; what would you like for that?

So, activity within the club being the theme of this post, I have a little poll here. PLEASE VOTE IN THE POLL IF YOU WISH TO REMAIN IN THE COMMUNITY! I'm not saying I'll "defriend" anyone that doesn't vote, but the thought did cross my mind. So please, take a sec if you can and just click one of the buttons :) .

Do you want to be an active member at Club DiFacsino?

Yes! I can't wait to share some classic thoughts, pictures, reviews, discussions, and other things with everyone! I'll also participate in club activities.
Yes! I'd love to participate in any club games, contests, or discussions.
No, but I want to be a member and enjoy what others post.
No, this place is no fun.

Thanks to everyone for voting, and thanks to all of you guys that post all the time and always comment (You few know who you are! I'm afraid I'll leave someone out if I list you dollies!)! It is so appreciated!

Also, we're open here to affliates, so if you want to have your classic community linked in this community's profile, let me know and I'll be happy to.

Thanks so much for reading this boring mod post! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas, and best of everything in 1949! Er, 2009... ;)

Love Always,
~~Ginger (mod)

This community doesn't seem to be very active lately. :-( So I thought I'd post something.

Here's one of my favorite videos from youtube-- a clip of Ginger Rogers on the classic game show "What's My Line?" from November 21, 1954.

You can find many more clips from this show featuring your favorite classic stars here.

I was so happy last night to hear that tonite on "The O'Reilly Factor", Bill O'Reilly will be taking a look at some of Bob Hope's best USO moments in honor of Christmas fast approaching. He has a sort of fixation of Bob's work in the USO lol, so I've seen him talk about him a few times, and it's always good. And, well, ANYTHING with Bob is worth watching :D

"The O'Reilly Factor" airs on The Fox News Channel at 8 and 11PM, as well as 5AM, EST.

Icons and games coming soon!

Love Always,

Hi all!

With our new member usedtobeyou posting her application, the time has come to get this place back off of the ground. PLEASE, everyone here, go welcome our newest member (and if you're new and haven't posted your introduction, jump on in!).

I have moved several times this year, the co-mod has been MIA for who knows how long, and this lovely place has been a little sleepy! Since this is not a mod-driven community, like a stamping community or daily picture community, you guys are always welcome to post ANYTHING. We started this place to chit chat about nothing in particular, as long as it was classic. So c'mon! I'm going to revamp the layout, maybe think of a couple games, etc.. What would you guys like to do? Stamping? Themes? Games? Anything you'd like, I'd be glad to organize/make graphics for/whatever :) . Let's chit chat about it!!

So, everyone still reading here, comment and let me know you're awake! You don't have to make a suggestion or anything, I just want a show of hands of people that see this if you've got the time ;)

Love Always,
~~Ginger (mod)

This picture from Simply Classics is just too great, methinks:

Random, but it begged to be shared ;) . Two WONDERFUL people like that, I couldn't resist. They're just as great there as they were in Vivacious Lady :)

Let's get this community back on full speed! Any fun stuff to share, my lovelies?

Love Always,
