1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

"...the image is one thing and the human being is another...it’s very hard to live up to an image."
-From the press conference prior to his record-breaking Madison Square Garden shows in New York City, 1972.


"Elvis Presley was an explorer of vast new landscapes of dream and illusion. He was a man who refused to be told that the best of his dreams would not come true, who refused to be defined by anyone else’s perceptions. This is the goal of democracy, the journey on which every American hero sets out. That Elvis made so much of the journey on his own is reason enough to remember him with the honor and love we reserve for the bravest among us. Such men made the only maps we can trust."
Dave Marsh
From his book, Elvis.

"It’s always been my dream to come to Madison Square Garden and be the warm-up act for Elvis."
Senator Al Gore

Lisa Marie Quotes

∙ I write about subjects that are close to my heart, but not every one of them is necessarily about the men in my life. Maybe two or three at most ... That's why I called it To Whom It May Concern. Go speculate.

∙ I'll be comfortable on stage if people come because they like the album and they really want to see me. Not because they look at it as a curiosity, or they're really skeptical.

∙ I'll say it loud and say it proud. I'm completely insane.

∙ I'm a hypochondriac. Yesterday it was brain damage from the vodka the night before. Today, heart attack — my arm and chest started hurting at the same time.

2) Elvis Presley & other Legends

Elvis sightings

Elvis sightings are a recurring phenomenon in which people claim to see American singer and rock star Elvis Presley, who is reported to have died in August 1977.

Presley was born in January 1935 so his projected age would not preclude the possibility that Elvis is still alive (as of 2005, he would be 70 years old). Critics of the theory that Elvis is still alive state that a number of Elvis impersonators can easily be mistaken for Elvis and that Elvis's fans merely don't want to believe he is actually dead.

Most people who believe Elvis is still alive posit that Elvis is spending the remainder of his life in solitude somewhere in the United States. Others posit extraterrestrial involvement, although these conspiracy theories may simply be an exercise in self-parody.

One meta-theory holds that stories of Elvis sightings are circulated by the CIA to discredit in advance stories of secret government weapons and activities. "Yeah, you saw a black plane that left regular puffballs of smoke behind it and by the way, Elvis just bought a doughnut in Kenosha."

In 1987, Gail Brewer Giorgio wrote a book, Is Elvis Alive?, discussing the matter. She invited people to phone a premium-rate number to listen to her proof that he is. After one heard the proof, the caller would be instructed to make another premium-rate call to vote on if they believed Elvis was alive.

Television shows also had a field day poking fun at the urban legend. In an episode of the sitcom ALF, ALF believed that his neighbor was actually Elvis after he took a peanut butter and banana sandwich. On an episode of The New WKRP in Cincinnati, someone called Les Nesman claiming to be Elvis, which turned out to be a joke by a rival station.

In 1991 and 1992, actor Bill Bixby (who starred in two movies with Presley and was also one of Elvis' close friends) hosted a program live from Las Vegas titled The Elvis Files. People called in to ask questions to an "expert panel" on why they thought Elvis was alive. Radio shock jock Howard Stern even called in to make fun of the program. At the end of the show, the final results of the call-in poll stated people believed Elvis was alive.

Perhaps the idea of Elvis' non-death was taken to its logical conclusion in the 2002 movie Bubba Ho-tep in which Bruce Campbell plays a man in a nursing home who claims to be the real Elvis, and to have switched places with an Elvis impersonator named Sebastian Haff in the early 1970s.

In a bizarre footnote to the phenomenon, a large portrait of Elvis was seen in Iraq in June 2004, along with portraits of prominent Islamic figures.

Former bass back-up singer J.D. Sumner was one of the pallbearers at Elvis' burial service in 1977. He claims that Elvis' body was in the casket.

There is an official Elvis Sighting Society which make its World Heaquarters at the Newport Restaurant in the Westboro section of Ottawa, Ontario. Restaurant Owner Moe Atallah is one of the founders of the group.

Sightings of Elvis in the Yukon Territory are completely believable, since a local resident has not only legally adopted the name, but dresses as Elvis and believes he is a reincarnation of Elvis.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
"Fools Rush In"

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

(words & music by J. Mercer — R. Bloom)

Fools rush in, where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head
Though I see the danger there
If theres a chance for me
Then I dont care, oh-oh-oh-oh

Fools rush in, where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in

And I dont care, oh-oh-oh-oh

Fools rush in, where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in

So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in

So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in

So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in

5) Party Planner tips:
"How To plan a slumber Party For Your teens"

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

Planning a slumber party for your teens can be hard work but exciting, as soon as you get started with the right idea and know exactly what to do.

Here are some helpful hints:

1. The slumber guest list. Talk with your teenager who she wants to invite for her slumber party, taking into consideration the size of your home and more importantly, the size of her bedroom or their sleeping area.

2. The slumber party invitation. Help your teenager think what kind of party she wants; help her decide on a theme.

You both can check out the internet on party themes and suggestions.

After she has made up her mind, then lend a hand with the invitations, making certain that it goes with her theme.

3. Prepare the sleeping quarters. Make sure that there are enough sleeping bags or mattresses on the floor with clean sheets for all the guests and do make certain that each is very comfortable.

Provide lots of blankets, pillows and stuffed animals (for them to hug at night).

Place on top of each a set of bath essentials (towel, soap, shampoo, cologne, etc.) all put together in a pretty basket. This, the guest can take home as give-aways.

Provide lots of fashion and gossip magazines and board games such as pictionary, millionaire’s game or scrabble as well.

You can also provide each guest with a cute bedroom sleeper and have them take these home as party give-aways as well.

4. Prepare the bathroom. Make sure to clean it well and arrange it in a way that it is pleasing to the eyes of teens.

Create a mini spa effect with lots of scented candles and potpourri, beauty magazines, body and facial scrubs and sprinkle the floor with rose petals.

Make sure to provide lots of extra rolls of toilet paper, too.

5. Prepare the living room. Turn your living room into a mini theater. Rent horror DVD’s and place large throw pillows on the floor for additional seating.

Cover the windows with black paper and close the blinds to make the room appear as dark as possible.

Serve lots of popcorn, chips and dip with cold canned cola for an evening of horror movie showing.

6. Plan breakfast. The following morning, serve the tired teens breakfast in the yard; lots of orange juice, cereals, bread, fruits, hot cakes, eggs and bacon.

7. Watch them enjoy and congratulate yourself and your teenager for a successful slumber party!
