A new Elvis film is coming out.

Just came across this:

"People have said my absence from personal appearances has given the Beatles their big opportunities. I know nothing about that. I'll say the Beatles have got what it takes and in great abundance and that they've been given a heck of a vote of confidence." --Elvis Presley

Thank you.  Thank you very much.  

So you're saying Elvis is the reason I had to get those stupid painful needles injected into me when I was a kid that did absolutely nothing, I guess the king of rock is also the king of worthless medical advances.

Maybe you should try posting more.

I'd think about that comment ASJ, as I haven't got an immunization since 1978 and I'm very rarely ill.

Maybe you should try posting more.

That's in part because the polio vaccine has essentially eradicated the disease on a global scale. You may one day end up with measles or chicken pox, but you are almost certain to avoid polio - not just because YOU were vaccinated but because EVERYONE ELSE was as well.

Today we drove down Perugia Way, the street where The Beatles met Elvis. The actual house has been torn down and rebuilt. I got this photo of the general neighborhood. The house would have been on the right, I think a little further down the street.

We didn't stay to explore because we saw a sign about armed guards being nearby.

You should move to Vegas, I heard they're are a lot of Elvis impersonators there and there's nothing better than handing some fraud a $20 and hearing him sing Hound Dog and Jailhouse Rock.

I guess the reason why is because Elvis impersonators are now considered a form of copyright infringement.

Actually, I think my photo shows what Elvis and the Beatles would have seen when they drove away from the house. I am standing right at the edge of where Elvis's house would have been, looking down at the next house. I should have turned around and photographed what was behind me.

I just stumbled upon this and thought it was pretty darn cool.  It's the vocal track from Suspicious Minds.  There's a significant amount of bleedthrough, but it's still really neat.

Vivian Stanshall's (of The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band) cover of Suspicion, from Elvis's Pot Luck album. 

https://youtu.be/PIwXtOq7WKQ

This cover seems to be commonly misattributed on the web to the Bonzos, despite them splitting two years before this was recorded.
