1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

I’m not kiddin’ myself.
My voice alone is just an ordinary voice.

What people come to see is how I use it. If I stand still while I’m singin’, I’m dead, man! I might as well go back to drivin’ a truck.

Lisa Marie Quotes

I had anything but a happy childhood. Two words: lonely and deep. I was very lonely and way too deep for someone so young.

I had no interest in hanging out with other celebrity kids, and I was certainly no cheerleader, so I started mixing with outsiders. I was very into all kinds of experimentation.

I have a lot of memories, but I don't go into capitalizing on that. Something's got to be my own. I'm not doing the record to sit here and broadcast my memories of my father.

2) Elvis Presley & other Legends

Lizabeth Scott (born September 29, 1922) is an American actress.

She was born Emma Matzo in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, the daughter of John and Mary Matzo. Her parents were Roman Catholic Slovakian immigrants. The family later resided in nearby Scranton, where Emma attended Central High School and Marywood College.

She later went to New York City and attended the Alvienne School of Drama. In late 1942, she was eking out a precarious living with a small Midtown Manhattan summer stock company when she got a job as understudy for Tallulah Bankhead in Thornton Wilder's play The Skin of Our Teeth. However, Scott never had an opportunity to substitute for Bankhead.

When Miriam Hopkins was signed to replace Bankhead, Scott quit and returned to her drama studies and some fashion modeling. She then received a call that Gladys George, who was signed to replace Hopkins, was ill, and Scott was needed back at the theatre. She then went on in the key and leading role of "Sabina", receiving a nod of approval from critics at the tender age of 20. The following night George was out again and Scott went on in her place.

Soon afterward, Scott was at the Stork Club when motion picture producer Hal Wallis sent over an inquiry as to who she was, unaware that an aide had already arranged an interview with her for the following day. When Scott returned home, however, she found a telegram offering her the lead for the Boston run of The Skin of Our Teeth. She could not turn it down. She sent Wallis her apologies and went on the road.

Though the Broadway production, in which she received a credit as "Girl," christened her "Elizabeth," she dropped the "e" the day after the opening night in Boston, "just to be different."

A photograph of Scott in the magazine Harper's Bazaar was then seen by the movie agent Charles Feldman. He admired the fashion pose and took its model on as a client. Scott made her first screen test at Warner Brothers, where she and Hal Wallis finally met. Though the test was bad, he recognized her possibilities. As soon as he set up shop for himself at Paramount, she was signed to a contract. Her movie debut was in You Came Along (1945) opposite Robert Cummings.

Paramount publicity dubbed Scott "The Threat," in order to create an onscreen persona for her similar to Lauren Bacall or Veronica Lake. Scott's smoky sensuality and husky-voice lent itself to the film noir genre and, beginning with The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) starring Barbara Stanwyck and Van Heflin, the studio cast her in a series of thrillers.

The dark blonde actress was initially compared to Bacall because of a slight resemblance and a similar voice. Even more so after she starred with Bacall's husband, Humphrey Bogart, in the 1947 noir thriller Dead Reckoning. The movie was Scott's first of many roles as a femme fatale.

She also starred in Desert Fury (1947), a noir filmed in Technicolor, with John Hodiak, Burt Lancaster, Wendell Corey, and Mary Astor. In it, she played the role as Paula Haller, who, on her return from college, falls for a gangster, Eddie Mannix (played by Hodiak), and receives a great deal of opposition from the others.

Scott was paired with Lancaster, Corey, and Kirk Douglas in Hal Wallis' I Walk Alone (1948), a noirish story of betrayal and vengeance.

After being known professionally as Lizabeth Scott for 4 1/2 years, she appeared at the courthouse in Los Angeles, on October 20, 1949, and had her name legally changed.

Scott never married or had children. True or false, rumors and allegations concerning her sexual preferences began. In 1955, she hired famed attorney Jerry Giesler and sued Confidential Magazine for $2,500,000 in libel damages. She charged that in the September issue it was implied that she was "prone to indecent, illegal and highly offensive acts in her private and public life"; "These implications," Scott said, "are willfully, wrongfully, maliciously and completely without truth.", but she lost her case.

After completing Loving You (1957), which was Elvis Presley's second movie, Scott retired from the screen. She continued to appear in occasional guest starring roles on television, however, for several years. In 1972, she made one final motion picture appearance in Pulp with Michael Caine and Mickey Rooney.

Otherwise she lives in obscure retirement somewhere, someplace.

Lizabeth Scott has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contribution to Motion Pictures at 1624 Vine Street in Hollywood.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
Cotton Candy Land

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

(Words & music by Ruth Batchelor — Bob Roberts)

Sandman`s comin`, yes he`s comin`
To sprinkle you with sand
He`ll say "one, two, three"
And you`ll be, In cotton candy land

Sandman`s comin`, yes he`s comin`
He`ll take you, by the hand
And you`ll ride upon, a big white swan
In cotton candy land

You and the swan will float upon
A cloud of pink ice cream
Where every star is a candy bar
And the moon is a marshmallow dream
Sandman`s comin`, yes he`s comin`
Take his magic hand

Now sleep tight
In cotton candy land
In cotton candy land...

5) Party Planner tips:

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

"Planning a Surprise Party"

Use your imagination and know exactly what the likes of the "celebrant" are as well as his/her schedule so you can successfully host a surprise party that your "guest of honor" will love.

Here’s a guide to help you out:

1. Guest list. As this is a surprise, then you can not coordinate with the "celebrant" who she wants for her party. Ask her best or closest friend, co-worker or the mom so you can have an idea.

2. Date. This can be really hard when you do not know your "guest of honor’s" schedule. Here again, ask people who she often sees or works with daily.

3. Theme. When you know her preferences, then it will be easy for you to decide on a theme. Is she a movie fan? A sports fanatic? Loves to cook? Loves the beach? Loves to play cards?

4. Party location. Keep in mind to consider how many guests are coming when choosing the party’s location. Keep in mind, too, that this goes with the theme that you have chosen. For example, you choose to have a Caribbean theme party. Select a restaurant fronting the beach or with a pool. If you have chosen a casino party, choose to have it indoors with air-conditioning.

5. Setting up the party. If you have chosen a Caribbean theme party, have the guests come in their colorful costumes and you can decorate the place with lots of tropical plants and flowers and torches. See to it that you also serve a little assortment of Caribbean food.

If you have chosen a casino party (when your guest of honor loves the game of cards) you can set up tables of poker and rent slot machines.

Should the party require a costume, better have one ready for the "guest of honor" so that when she arrives, she can readily change into it.

6. Music. Select music that would best suit the personality of your "guest of honor", or one that would suit the theme of your surprise party.

7. The day of the party. Have someone pick up the "guest of honor". For example, have her best friend invite her to dinner and bring her to the surprise party instead.

Have some close relatives and friends say something about the "guest of honor".

Hire dance instructors to dance with the guests as well as a party DJ to make the party lively.

Enjoy and feel contented; a happy "guest of honor" is soon to thank you for a surprise party well planned.

8) Editor’s Notes & Fun Stuff:

Some humour to put a smile on your face!

Another Goody For The Oldtimers

My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.

My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter AND I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in icepack coolers, but I can't remember getting e.coli.

Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.

We all took gym, not PE... and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now..

Flunking gym was not an option... even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.

Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.

We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.

I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.

I just can't recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.

Oh yeah... and where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!

We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of Mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.

Now it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $49 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.

We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either because if we did, we got our butt spanked there and then we got butt spanked again when we got home.

I recall Donny Reynolds from next door coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off. Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house. Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a goof. It was a neighborhood run amuck.

To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family. How could we possibly have known that?

We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes? We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we didn't even notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac! How did we ever survive?
