Good - Just checking on how it looks on a PC
I have made mistakes.....
[I have made mistakes.....]
Naaa!! Lol, I’ll save this post!
After I posted the article I quickly tried to do my table graphic at the top of the thread. Still don’t know what happened to put it off center as I added 50 to width and height of the gold background and did align=center, valign=middle and the image is still closer to the top!
I used 100%x768 on the large primary <TableBG - WebTVs and some MSNTV2s can sometimes otherwise not show full width screen - especially on WebTV emails - at the right side
I used a 980 wide /s.gif above the table to expand the “PREVIEW” test as otherwise I only see the largest image width as the <TableBG width
You’ve got a number of hits/comments on your Elvis thread potlatch!
I see some have found the Elvis “Voice-midis” on that webpage - I found converted to Voice-MIDIS in Brazil
I need to check for .wavs too and update any songs that do not play all the way through on some of those webpages
No “Flying Elvis” jumpers yet?
Elvis is always popular. I was surprised at the flurry of posts when I first posted, that’s why I was rushing through my planned graphic post, lol.
Also, I was going to say that that was ‘devolve’s webpage’!
I just happened across it while going through EP music files and that’s where that song was.
You need to get interested in your old pages again, they are great!!
Hey AzCarolyn :)
This thread is much more fun.
My husband and I used to go to the Hilton to see him as well. We were friends with Joanna Moore [Ryan O’Neal’s ex.] who got us in through the VIP line. I remember the last show we saw, he was overweight and somewhat flip with the ladies in the front. But, still it was Elvis!! I will treasure those days as they were so much simpler than now.
Your Elvis thread has topped 200 comments in just under 8 hours!
Did better than my “Here Lies Vera” one, lol. It had a LOT of page views many hours ago too.
My “counter” is amazing me also. Wish I had put it in in 2001!
As much as I loved Elvis, I preferred Willie Nelson’s version of “You were Always on my Mind.”
I have Willie's version of that song too.
Cute thread, potlatch..Pinging a big fan
I’m 48 today!
And I’m still alive!!!
(thank you very much)
Thanks Meg and thanks for pinging jaycee.
I hadn't either, so I did a quick Googleization....and learned enough to understand how the King may have puffed up like a tick in his later years. He was quirky, for sure; won't be another like him. Jacko? Nah.
After Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year, I get to the point where, by the time it gets to Jan. 8, I’m pretty tired of all the festivities.
I’m polishing of a bottle of Jack Daniels and waiting for the start of the Penguins/Predators game.
How fitting that my team is in Nashville tonight!
Yeah, sad how he got so heavy. Some drugs may have contributed to that too.
Jackson, good grief no, lol - he has to reattach his nose and who knows what else, every day.....!
Don’t ever be too tired to celebrate your birthday, just start forgetting the “number count”, lol.
Enjoy your game - if you are still able to see straight after finishing off that bottle!!
Same here, I long for those days, not that long ago, but seem a lifetime ago. BTW Larry King is interviewing Priscilla live from Graceland right now.
One thing he said the night I talked with him was he used to love watching music conductors and that he learned a lot from that. When you watch him you can see that influence.
Great story and so typical of Elvis.
I’m watching :)
I love the old videos of Elvis.
I believe devolve has that, know I've heard it a number of times.
Laughing about him learning a lot from the music conductors. They used their arms and hands and he used his hips, lol.
If I didn’t have to work tomorrow I would be up for hours going through all those videos, but I intend to do just that over the weekend.
American Trilogy = Aloha From Hawaii is one of my very favorite songs of his. I have it on my playlist on my Infield Parking page along with a few others.
You mean if Elvis had lived he would have looked like a little red X in a box?
“My dad is standing in the back with his hand under the chin. Later on we moved to Hollywood. The rest is history.”
Now this pic looks pretty authentic. So you moved to Hollywood and became...an Elvis imitator?
This was also a bizarre thing that happened to me. My cousin and I had been in Atlanta in August 1977 because he had a job interview there. We were on our way back to Colorado and were going to go through Memphis to see Graceland.
The car broke down about an hour from Memphis. As we sat there waiting for a tow listening to the radio we hear that he just died. My heart sank. The next day we went by the house, it took us two hours to drive down EP Blvd. There were cars and people everywhere. It was such a horribly sad day.
What gave you idear that I became an Elvis imitator? I told you that I wrote movie scripts!
It may be the Southern girl that comes out in me, being a combo of Dixie and Battle Hymn of the Republic, it’s a song that brings me to tears and his version is one of the best, though I have to say Mickey Newbury makes is close to a tie as to the best version.
Gotta say this. Priscilla’s “Widow Presley” routine is getting old for me. They divorced 5 years before he died, for crying out loud. She’s been riding the gravy train ever since.
I’m almost dreading to see what that redX is hiding, lol.
Sorry, I’m so star-struck, I lost my head there for a moment.
Did you contribute to “Live A Little, Love A Little?” Some great dialog in that one...
I think it brings out those feelings in all of us Carolyn. It’s a lovely song.
“Elvis was a decent, mama loving, church going boy.”
All those girls were extras from Girl Scout Troop 90210, Beverly Hill, CA.
Hey, that’s John McCain!
I will say one thing about her surprised me and that is the way she managed Graceland into a thriving enterprise, Elvis was not a money-manager, and when she was talking about the horses tonight I sort of drifted off thinking that she has created something that not only will Lisa Marie run it but likely her grandchildren as well.
Somebody has to ride the gravy train, AnnGora (any relation to Al Gora?) and Priscilla wrestled the estate from the hill billy relatives and from Col.Parker to whom 50% of the King’s earnings went, if that what you or somebody meant by saying that El gave that much to charity. Oh, and Parker’s charity were the Vegas casinos.Did he die broke? Also, Priscilla produced the only worthwhile movie or rather TV serial about Elvis’ early years. Have you seen it?
Oh! how interesting that you would be there when it happened. I think, sort of like when Kennedy was shot, most of us know where we were when we found out Elvis was dead.
Didn’t Lisa Marie recently sell her interests in Graceland?
I have really developed a penchant for YouTube music videos, a lot of times I’ll start going through them in the evening and before you know it I look at the clock and it’s two o’clock in the morning.
I will never forget that day.
My cousin and I were always huge fans of his, we would ride in his convertible playing Elvis songs. :)
Well, I better say goodnight.
Nite... good sharing these stories with you.

She didn’t wrestled it from the relatives. Elvis’ dad made her executor of the estate. I don’t care how The Colonel died as long as the old vampire IS dead. I did see the TV show about his early years and it was excellent. However, she also produced a Made For TV movie about her life with Elvis that portrayed him as some egotistical boorish inbred while it made her look like an innocent angelic victim of the life Elvis imposed on her. Dreck.
No relation to Al Gore. Second non de plume to Ed Wood, though.
