The King

My first serious crush was on a gentleman named Elvis Aaron Presley. Everything about him screamed out to me: his music, his style, his moves, and most of all, that hair. There's something about a well executed pompadour that makes me wish I could go back in time - if only to witness a world in which men actually cared about their locks. In celebration of Elvis Week (August 8 – 16) and in honor of my everlasting love for The King, here's a video of a 1956 rendition of "Blue Suede Shoes". Throughout his career Elvis carried himself with unmatched charisma and charm, and a sense of humor that could never be crushed. In every performance (even this staged one) you can tell that he lived and breathed music, and loved the spectacle of it all - his chuckle and knowing smile say it all.


  1. Is this some sort of test to be sure I'm actually reading the blog?

  2. Haha! No, but now I know you are! ;) Elvis lovers unite!
