I’ve had a lot more visitors here than usual. While I hoped they came by to check out my chapbook (which is now available for pre-order…) (HA!), based on their Google searches, they arrive in search of Gene Kelly.
At first I was distracted, wondering what it is I’m missing out on, that suddenly so many are looking for Gene Kelly. What’s happening?
But then I felt badly that folks ended up here just because I mentioned earlier this year how much I adore him. Thus I feel duty-bound to provide more for their troubles. Below is one of the best song & dance sequences ever, from “Singin’ in the Rain”: “Moses Supposes”, with Donald O’Connor, one of the only dancers that could keep up with Gene without breaking a sweat.
And, if you listen to the words, well, it’s all pure poetry.
