La Morte De Elvis

29 years ago today, 8/16/1977, Elvis died. Long live the King!

His demise left the music world all shook up, although there are still some suspicious minds who think. OK, that's enough of THAT!

Some Elvis related photos, or at least Memphis, from the "way back" section of the archives:

Of course you know he's not dead. He actually works at a Whole Foods up here in Seattle. I saw him last Thursday in the bulk foods department.

nope, he's dressed in a perogie costume and races at PNC park!!!


seriously, of all the odd things i've seen, elvis worship has got to be one of the strangest.

Well, Jonathan's word is generally good enough for me.... Of course, the thought of a 71 year old Elvis bagging groceries is kinda pathetic.

Dying, a bloated drug user, on the toilet, is kind of pathetic too. :)

Well, he did kinda miss the "Die Young, Stay Pretty" thing...

I'm reminded of the words of the Dead Milkmen

"When its time for me to die, that's how I want to go, fat and stoned and wealthy and sitting on the bowl."
