Our way of celebrating Frank Sinatra today: our Sinatra double-feature parody-tribute. Could be used as mood music for making Memorial Day or July 4th air travel plans. Part 1 - "Fly Me In The Nude" (but G-rated) - as Frank "patiently" goes though the full-body scanners at Newark Airport http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn3AcCmPL00 Part 2- slightly less-P.C. "Flying with this Loon" - After boarding the plane, Frank heroically helps deck a suspicious character. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDtWUZx858s

Remember the Alamo? Max will make sure you never forget it! In this new musical comedy-adventure, a young, idealistic Mexican General seeks respect for himself and Mexico by marching his soldiers into Texas in an against-all-odds quest to reclaim the Alamo.
