It's Only a Paper Moon

My four cats were very shy and timid, probably the result of being raised by shy timid me, and I tried to figure out how to make them feel safe and calm. I decided singing to them was the way, and just then I'd been watching Deep Space 9, featuring the character of Vic Fontaine .....

Vic Fontaine is a holographic entertainer appearing in a program run in one of Quark's holosuites on the space station Deep Space Nine. He is played by James Darren. Created by a holoprogrammer named Felix, Vic works as a Rat Pack style crooner in an idealized version of 1960s Las Vegas. He is charismatic and extremely perceptive. He is used as an informal counselor by crew-members of Deep Space Nine ...

So I learned the words to most of Vic's songs and sang them to the cats :) One of their favorites was It's Only a Paper Moon. Here's a clip from Deep Space Nine, an episode in which Nog spends some time with Vic in his holographic world, with Vic singing the song in the background ....

Sure sounds like Tony Bennett is singing his heart out for your cats Crystal or his that just an imaginary character?



I hear ya! Vic, if sinner vic would listen closely he might also hear my four cats singing this below:

I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place

A bubble for a minute
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it.

Is that how "IT" gets around sinner vic? :)

"IT" wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me! Go Figure. :)

God Bless Peace

Hi Victor,

The character is fictional but the singer is real = James Darrin.
