1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

"When you’re not in love, you are not alive."


"A Presley picture is the only sure thing in Hollywood."

Hal Wallis
Producer of nine of Elvis' films.

"There is something magical about watching a man who has lost himself find his way back home...He sang with the kind of power people no longer expect from rock ▒n’ roll singers."

John Landau
Review of Elvis, (1968 TV Special).

Lisa Marie Quotes

∙ I also did a record because, as I've said, music has had such a huge impact on me all my life, and my hope was to affect others musically the way I was affected.

∙ I come from a different situation than most people. I've been handed a different set of chips, and I've tried to find my way with it. Unfortunately, it's been in front of the public, but it's a genuine search to find the right mate. It's just that I can't quite find the right way to go because of the situation I've been handed.

∙ I did go through a Goth thing, but that was a long time ago. I just like artists that shake it up, that piss people off or make people think or rattle the cage somehow.

2) Elvis Presley & other Legends


The boy, Elvis Aron Presley, at the age of two or three he was a real sharecroppers kid wearing his overalls, a two toned shirt, and a hat which is worn in the same way as his dads, is cutely tipped to the right.

With his fine eyes who's pupils seem huge giving him a sharp look, his nose appears to be in a flattened form, his cheeks are very chubby, and even now at this age his famous curl is already altering his full lips.

At the age of six Elvis seems to have developed a few of his mothers delicate features, with his golden colored hair, wide-eyed and beautiful, but his curled lip is very much noticeable, giving the cherub a impish look, but also irresistible.

Now at the age of eight he is taller, slimmer and quite passive: every mothers ideal child, he is now dressed in the local style, with a long sleeved-shirt, open at the neck, and raggedy trousers held up chest high with the support of braces: a mighty fine Huckleberry Fin.

In the future Elvis learns to love God, to value even his worst elders, and to stand by his Country whether it is right or wrong.

As life goes on, his untaught eyes observes his parent’s appalling poverty, they both rise with the dawn and work hard all day with very little time for pleasure.

His father keeps changing jobs, they have to keep moving, and it seems like no end in sight. Elvis looks at his mothers face, feels the tension in her flesh, its then Elvis turns to her promising one day he will mend things.

It is likely that Elvis is now aware of the protective smiles to the exposure lying ahead of the family, in the land’s gripping poverty.

Elvis sings to his mother when the storms force them from home; he stands up to sing in the classroom and at church, clear, unsteady, doubtful, with an impressive genuineness that brings tears to the eyes of the strongest in the room.

Elvis’s nature was very sweet and consistently polite, quiet and considerate, as for rebellion it never existed in his personality. Elvis may have been poor but respectable, standard at school; he would gather flowers with the other kids, fooled around, but seldom gets into trouble: an unknown child.

When he is thirteen the Presley family are on the move again, leaving the harsh fields to the bright lights of Memphis.

Elvis now sixteen naturally, continues to sing, and carry his guitar around. He would on occasions play for his friends, in the schools variety shows, on picnics and at times at the local boys club ≈ but not to receive a financial return. Elvis is not showy with it; he is quite the opposite and is often reluctant.

It’s just something he does ≈ but knows how to get it going once he starts.

Elvis being no different to other kids of this age: following the girls, pairing up to go out to the movies, having rides at the carnival, and longing for the day he has a car to go cruising in ≈ just an average all American boy.

In the adolescent years hanging out by the drug stores and jukebox joints, bored by the past, with nothing offered by the present, while casting misty eyes to wards the romantic future. It seems his Country is going through a boring stage. It would all seem such a drag

Girls in their bobbed hair and make up; the guys ≈ presenting neatness wearing slacks and jumpers with tidy crew-cut play sport.

Just before the end of Elvis’s school years, he starts part time work as an usher to help out with the hard times for his parent’s, but had to quit after punching a fellow usher.

He then works evening shift at the Marl Metal Product’s Company which became difficult while also tending school though the day but after falling to sleep at school he quits again.

Life doesn’t seem to be improving for his parents as they continue to struggle through the tough times, Elvis starts mowing lawns for pocket money, and yet no matter how grim thing where for the Presley’s, they would always do the best they could by their son.

They went as far as buying Elvis a Lincoln Coupe, which it seems, is for all the family, but Elvis uses it.

Life remains unsteady, but in view of the conditions Elvis has good time ≈ going out to parties, hanging around jukeboxes, generally enjoying life. But he remains very thankful to his parents and returns all the love he receives.

After leaving school in June 1953 he gets a factory job, then goes to Crown Electricity Company, where he finally gets to be a truck driver and loves it.

It was noticed by many he liked to comb his hair and that it wasn’t a concern who saw him do it, in all reality he thought little of other's opinions as he would rather use a beauticians parlour than that of a barbershop.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
All Shook Up

This new feature of our ezine is for karaoke superstars & the fans that just like to sing-along with the King.

(words & music by otis blackwell — elvis presley)

A well I bless my soul
Whats wrong with me?
Im itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say Im actin wild as a bug
Im in love
Im all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I cant seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
Im in love
Im all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

Please dont ask me whats on my mind
Im a little mixed up, but Im feelin fine
When Im near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!

She touched my hand what a chill I got
Her lips are like a vulcano thats hot
Im proud to say shes my buttercup
Im in love
Im all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

My tongue get tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
Theres only one cure for this body of mine
Thats to have the girl that I love so fine!

5) Party Planner tips: "How To Throw A No Fret Holiday Party"

This new feature of our ezine is a bonus home entertaining guide for all you party animals.

Holidays are always a great time for merry-making and fun.

Be it in the comfort of your home, among friends, or within the workplace, throwing a holiday party is a wonderful way of getting people together and celebrating the season.

Like any other events, parties should be well conceptualized and planned out in order to ensure that they achieve their intended purposes, and end in a well and happy note.

Planning a holiday party at the office proves to be more complicated than putting up a holiday party for friends or family for the plain and simple reason that the office set-up is very diverse.

There is an effort to make the merry-making one that appeals to all without leaving anybody out.

Here are some tips on how you can make your office holiday party really hopping!

1. It would be a nice start to include a welcome remark from the distinguished guest you have invited to your holiday party — the CEO, the President, or the Managers.

Encourage them to address the party attendees in a manner that acknowledges the diversity of the group.

2. Putting up holiday decorations will bring extra glitz to your party. However, stick to non-specific decors.

Keep away from Santa Clauses, and leave the Christmas Trees, Hanukkah Menorah, and any other Christmas cultural symbols in their boxes.

Instead, use neutral symbols like candles, flowers, snowflakes, or balloons.

3. As for the menu, make it as divers as possible. Try to accommodate diverse dietary needs and beliefs.

Offer both vegetarian, as well as non-vegetarian choices for your guests.

4. Plan some holiday party games and activities.

At some point, the party may start to go stale for some of the attendees.

A game will perk them up and keep their energy up.

5. Organize an exchange of gifts segment as a part of your holiday party program. However, avoid anonymous employee gift exchanges.

An innocent act of stuffing a Christmas Angel into a non-believer's stocking may cause some discomfort, even worse offense.

6. Do not focus the celebration just on Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa.

Try to get as much input from your employees as possible.

Even better, allow employees to opt out of the company holiday events minus the negative connotation or penalty.

Have all this in mind, and true enough, a worry-free and no fret company holiday party is not a farfetched idea.
