Update: Elvis Presley Is Still Dead

Filed under: Entertainment,Open Thread — Psycheout @ 4:02 am

ElvisRock ‘n’ roll, gyrating hips, bad enunciation, lousy movies, drug abuse and an untimely and humiliating end in his filthy bathroom. This was your life, Elvis. Congratulations.

It would appear that the false king is still dead. But the one true King, the Son of G-d still reigns. And His joyful noise is far greater than any off-key caterwauling ever uttered by this overrated and puffed up pop star.

Discuss your recollections of this untalented and mouldering fallen star, the anniversary of Woodstock (that muddy and smelly anti-climax of the ill-fated “summer of love”) or whatever else seems important on this day.

Aside: An always refreshing voice in the comments reminded me of that great swinging crooner without equal, Pat Boone.  His columns, like  those of another great American, Chuck Norris, be read over at World Net Daily.

  1. Well, he was certainly no Pat Boone that is for sure. When Elvis overdosed on that toilet in his astoundingly ugly mansion in Tennessee, I was just a little girl so I remember very little about it. What I do recall is Granny Georgia-Sue telling the story about a family dinner where people were joking about Evils (that was his nickname) passing and me asking one of the grown-ups if, “Evils was a sinner?”, and then replying, “Well, good then, he was a sinner and he deserved to die.” Really, this is the only recollection I have about his timely and appropriate death. That, and seeing all those wretched white trash women carrying on in the television interviews about their King being dead.

  2. You forgot the millions of bucks he earned with his music.🙂

    He might have not lived the best live, but the music still rocks!

  3. Just like Shostakovich’s music was seen as “counter-revolutionary” to Stalin (it was actually some of the greatest music ever), rock ‘n roll in general is dismissed as bad and insignificant by the people who fear its power the most (e.g. rabid censors!)

    Whether you like it or not, it is incredibly popular and important music.

  4. Dear Adam,

    You must jump at the sight of your own shadow. You spend more time talking about phobias and being scared than anyone I have ever known. Have you ever been tested for Paranoid Schizophrenia, dear?

  6. I never understood what the big deal with Elvis was. He couldn’t sing all that great, he wasn’t all that attractive to begin with, and he was just plain fat when he died. Good riddens. All those crazy women that make fools out of themself by taking flowers to his house and crying about missing him are just crazy and deserve to die too.

  7. History will remember Elvis, for his triumphs and his mistakes. Psycheout…not so much.

  8. Gaines-Crockett, you’re the one who fears for her own safety so much you feel it necessary to carry a gun. You are the epitome of paranoid fear.

  9. I’ve always felt that Elvis was overrated as well, although he was quite a handsome fellow in his younger days. He is proof of what overindulgence, drugs and alcohol will do.

    Connie, his fans may be a few sandwiches short of a picnic, but I really do wish you’d stop proclaiming that this one or the other one “deserves to die”. As a Christian and one who cherishes life, I find it to be incredibly disturing.
