The King, Unchained



"Elvis in Vegas. There is probably no phrase in our language that so clearly denotes showbiz emptiness, sloth, tackiness. But, of course, as with most things Elvis, the meaning gets much more complicated when you actually listen to the music."

-Alan Light, "Singing like a man with something to prove," Oxford American, Summer '05

Hey Aunt Kate,

did you see the march 7th entry?

The video should work if you hit the play button. If not, Uncle D may be able to help.

we can't view any videos posted on blogs, and i've really tried but can't get it fixed. we can, however, view stuff on youtube. so if it's on youtube, tell us what to look for or send us a link and we can get in on it.

Mr. Howard (I mean Damien, not Vincent):

Can you click on the YouTube logo in the bottom right hand corner of the video. That takes you to the YouTube site, usually the page where the video is hosted. Hope that works for you. Would be a shame for you to have to miss Elvis in Vegas!

unfortunately, no youtube logo appears for us. just a big white rectangle with a quicktime Q in the middle....and then poof! a question mark appears on the Q. it's very sad.
