Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

a rendition of "Over the Rainbow" on a ukelele

Might have been a reference to this.


Yes but it's the noticing that is uncanny. And significant.

Well done.


Maxwell, they make actually have played THAT. They played a bunch of stuff from Russert's iPod. Maybe this was a fave of his.

The whole memorial service is going to be broadcast on MSNBC at 11 Eastern. I think it's worth watching. Don't know what time that is in your zone, but check it out.


"Over the Rainbow" was probably by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. More here including shots of Iz's funeral:

He died young too.


Thanks, Stephanie!

Here's a live link to that.
