Singing in the Rain, Plus Lemons

I asked the little dude how he knows about "Singing in the Rain," and he said that he'd watched a video clip of Grover attempting to perform the number while Prairie Dawn battles the special effects team.

So, tonight we watched Gene Kelly in the original ("Why is he dancing in the rain?" He's so happy, because he's in love with the girl at the beginning of the clip. "Why is he in love?") and then the Glee mashup ("How do they get the rain to work on stage?" My good, theater-tech boy.)

I ran across this in the hallway at work today - a box of someone's homegrown lemons with a sign reading: If life gives you lemons, KEEP THEM, because, hey, free lemons.

Watched the Sesame St one. That was good.

Love the lemons. And the sign.

I'm pretty sure no one's going to give me free lemons, though. One of the downsides of living in Canada.

Remy loves the Gene Kelly version. I was so excited to hear about the Glee one, but was a little disappointed. A ton of unnecessary cuts and camera angles. Not sure if it was to disguise the choreography or not, as I never got a good look at it!
