Tiny Elvis [16 Nov 2007|06:50am]


Microscopic Sculptures - Art by Willard Wigan (GALLERY)

Art is created to be viewed. It can evoke inspiration, creativity, confusion or wonder.

But what about eye strain? UK artist Willard Wigan has created art sculptures so tiny, the naked eye can’t fully appreciate them. Llyod’s of London has insured the collection for 11.2 million pounds.

The tools behind his fine technique includes surgical blades which he uses to engrave fine details into figures made of rice, grains of sand and sugar. The final piece is then attached to a pinhead for display.

“For color, he uses a hair plucked from a dead fly,” explains ChipChick. “Some of his work include a Malcom X figure on the head of a toothpick, a Santa Claus, Muhammad Ali, The Thinker, and Elvis Presley on a pinhead. Polly Pocket of the 90’s has got nothing on this guy,”

Check out his Wikipedia entry.

Hello there, my name's Mary and I'm from Mexico, I'm new on this comm and in the fandom actually, I've known about Elvis all through my life (like any normal person *lol* who doesn't know about Elvis?) anyway, but these pasts months I've been obsessed with him.

But the sad part of the story, is that I only own four albums and they aren't studio albums and that quite sucks 'cause I need more music hehehe BUT, I can't find it anywhere, I've tried music-communities/blogs, etc, but they barely have Elvis' music, and I was wondering if you could point me where can I download his music or if you could upload it for me, I'd really appreciate it :D (No worries, loves... I'm planning on getting original albums as soon as I get a job hehe)

And also I'd really appreciate if you could tell me the titles of his albums and stuff, I really need information about him and his music hehe.

In advance... thank you, very much!

Saturday 4 March 2006

Charlie Hodge has died: Following several unconfirmed reports during the day, Charmaine Voisine has sent us this sad message, subsequently confirmed by Marty Lacker: It is with a very sad heart that I have to pass on to all Elvis fans around the world that a very close friend and confidante, Charlie Hodge passed away earlier on this evening as a result of lung cancer that was inoperable.  He had a couple of treatments of radiation therapy in between December and January.

Charlie Hodge first met Elvis Presley on a transport ship enroute to Germany from New York back in September 1958 and they served in the Army together and this is where their very close friendship developed and continued until  Elvis passed away in 1977.

Charlie Hodge was the guy that sang back up for Elvis, played guitar and also handed Elvis water and scarf's during his shows in the 1970's.

 Charlie has been performing nightly at the Memories Theatre for the past few years and he was only diagnosed in December 2005 that he had lung cancer and continued to perform despite that he had cancer, like Elvis, he was a true and dedicated performer for the love of his fans. We have designed a forum where fans of Elvis Presley and Charlie Hodge can come together to post up messages of condolences for the family of Charlie Hodge and also to post up messages they can share with the the Elvis community of friends and fans ~ their own experiences of meeting Charlie Hodge , spending time with him ~ or seeing him perform LIVE ~ 
This forum is in Memory of a wonderful person and great friend and confidante to our beloved Elvis Presley We would like to welcome you all to join this forum and post your messages - we will be making sure that his family and friends see this forum To join:- http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Charlie-Hodge or :-

CBS special today... [13 May 2005|09:29pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

Did anyone catch the CBS special today "ELVIS by the Presleys"?? I merely caught the very end of it & it almost had me crying!! Has Pricilla had alot of plastic sugery....her face seems very tight? I was thinking that because although she looks lovely today, it seems like something was done to her face...anyone think the same? However, I still have heard she's a nice person & a great busienss woman too. I simply was wondering about the plastic surgery thing because she seemed a bit different in the face.

Welcome To My World [08 Apr 2005|05:28pm]

[ mood | artistic ]

Welcome To My World
Elvis Presley

Welcome to my world,
Won't you come on in
Miracles, I guess
Still happen now and then
Step into my heart
Leave your cares behind
Welcome to my world
Built with you in mind

Knock and the door shall be open
Seek and you will find
Ask and you'll be given
The key to this heart of mine

I'll be waiting there
With my arms unfurled
Waiting just for you
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

Hi everyone,

I've been away for a while but I have a couple of elvis things to tell you. One is if you go to this this site and enter a search in for Elvis, there are a few all Elvis radio channels.

The second is I'm starting to work on an Elvis multimedia website which will have multimedia files, pictures, backgrounds, links, hotbars, winamp skins, sounds, LJ avatars, buddy icons and anything else I can think of to add.

If anyone could suggest something to have on the site (I only have the first page up so far) let me know.

♥ing Elvis
