Movies are entertaining enough for the masses

I'm afraid I'm a couple of days late on my segment post (spotlight on a scene). This week was my last week of classes as an undergrad and I had a lot going on: 2 induction ceremonies, 3 research papers and a senior seminar presentation (to name a few).

Anyway, on Tuesday, I finally got my roommate to watch Singin' in the Rain (she firmly believed she wouldn't like it). Much to my relief, she loved it, and actually suggested watching it again on Thursday! Every time I watch that movie, I remember how thoroughly I enjoy it. One of my favorite scenes has always been the car scene with Don Lockwood and Kathy Seldon. It's such a funny scene and there are so many great lines. I went to Hollywood about four years ago and got to see Sunset and Camden - when you see this scene, you'll know why I wanted to go.

I want to apologize for having forgotten "I'm Putting All My Eggs In One Basket" on my poll. It's one of my favorites and I really have no idea how I missed it! I hope you will vote anyway - you can vote for multiple songs.

Thank you again for following! I now have 13 followers - hooray! My goal is 15 by New Year's. Think I can do it?


  1. Ainsley and I watched it for the thousandth time but this time she had an umbrella as a partner to dance with!!!!! She agrees that the car scene is hilarious!

  2. Singin' in the Rain is one of the absolutely best musicals ever, and it's perfect for converting people into Gene Kelly/classic musical fans (I introduced it to my cousin this summer).

    Just keep blogging! The quality of your writing is good enough that you're bound to get more followers.
