This is a fantastic sequence. I wish Netflix would add the movie ("Words & Music") to the instant-access titles. DL

I never realized before how much Perry Como sounds like Der Bingle. Maybe that was only when he was starting out? Terry Gross did an interview a while back with someone who recently wrote a biography of Gene Autry in which it was revealed that early in his career Gene did dead-on imitations of Jimmie Rodgers.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
