Singing in the Rain

It's not raining right now. I wish it was raining because at least when it's raining it's not so cold. Cold wouldn't normally be that much of a problem, but I don't have central heat anymore. I have those little oil filled radiators and one convection version. This is ok, but because it was warm I had them all on low. We came home to a house less than toasty. We cranked them all up and now it's getting toasty, but it's also warming up outside, so maybe it will rain some more. I like the rain. I want it to rain all winter. We had enough snow last year to last us until at least 2012. My snow meter is quite full and doesn't need a refill at this time. A lot of people are saying that it would be nice to have a white Christmas. I say bah humbug. I want a traditional, rainy, Northwest Christmas.  Lots of gray skies, mild temperatures and Christmas lights are just fine by me.
So anyway...
Here are two of my favorite "You-tube" videos. Back in the early days of myspace I used to love to play with my page. I would take a photograph from my own collection and use it as the background and then make everything on my page go with the "theme" I had chosen. One time I chose rain and went looking for rainy things to add to my page. In the process I found these and several other really good "Singing in the Rain" videos and put them all on my page. It was great. These are my favorite two of them all.

This other one cannot be embedded by request of the artist, so you will have to click to go look at it, but it is a very clever dance done to the "Singing in the Rain" theme that includes a live person and lots of trash that comes to life as his dancing partner. I super enjoyed it and I hope you will, too.

Did you know Singin' In The Rain is one of my all-time favorite movies. Gene! Oh Gene.

I love it, too. There were a couple of other clever takes on it, but I can't remember exactly what they were. These were my two favorites.
