Easter Parade

I watched “Easter Parade” with Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, & a lot of other people who are probably dead now. See? It’s that kind of sarcasm & bluntness that makes me usually not a musical person, the same way I don’t really dig most poetry. Say what you mean, & be done with it. I was expecting not to like Easter Parade (This movie was mentioned in “Dear Richard & Emily” when Lorelai buys Emily a DVD player & then walks up the stairs singing this). However, there were a few very Lorelai moments in this film; it was quite likeable & funny.  Plus it’s in Technicolor.  Nifty. I find myself longing for the days when a guy can be a balding, skinny jerk & still get the girl as long as he can dance. So to recap, “Easter Parade” I didn’t hate it as much as I thought I would. It’s a very light, happy film, it’s the kind of movie you watch when your mom visits. As musicals go, it ain’t bad.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    I just got back from seeing Dreamgirls…very good, but musicals just ain’t what they used to be. Back in the day, folks had some seriously multi-faceted talents.

    And now that I think about it, GG is probably the only show where I would LOVE to see them do a musical episode. Sixty minutes of sheer hilarity, with commercial breaks to catch our breath…
