I must apologize for my extended absence here on my site.  My computer has to be replaced.  I ordered a new one which has arrived but which I have not yet been able to set up and begin using.  I have been working very hard to get some un-necessary files cleared from this old computer in order to have a clean copy of Carbonite in order to populate the new computer.  It has turned in to a never-ending nightmare so far.  

I hope to be back to posting very soon.  I thank everyone for your patience and understanding.

Celebrate the Beginning of the Christmas Season at Graceland with Two Star-Studded Events on November 15

OCTOBER 04, 2018

Scotty McCreery and Marty Stuart to appear at Graceland’s Annual Holiday Lighting, Featuring a Special Live Musical Performance by McCreery

The World Premiere of Hallmark Channel’s “Christmas At Graceland” Movie will be held on the Graceland Soundstage Immediately Following

WHAT: Holiday Lighting Ceremony at Elvis Presley’s Graceland and the World Premiere of Hallmark Channel’s “Christmas at Graceland”
WHO: Country music stars Scotty McCreery and Marty Stuart and actors Eric Close and Wes Brown 
WHEN: November 15
Lighting and Entertainment at 6:00 p.m. CST
Red Carpet and Performer Interviews at 6:30 p.m. CST 
Movie Premiere at 7:00 p.m. CST
WHERE: Graceland Plaza Green and Elvis Presley’s Memphis Soundstage

Elvis Presley’s Graceland will officially begin the holiday season when country music stars Scotty McCreery and Marty Stuart flip the switch on the traditional lights and decorations lighting up Elvis Presley’s iconic home. This time honored tradition will feature a special performance by McCreery.

The extensive Christmas display at the king’s castle includes hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh, and much more, all originally displayed at Graceland by Elvis and the Presley family. 

Immediately following, Hallmark Channel’s “Christmas At Graceland” will have its World Premiere on the Soundstage at Elvis Presley’s Memphis. This all-new holiday film, shot on location at Graceland, is filled with music made famous by Elvis, and stars 2018 Daytime Emmy Award nominee Kellie Pickler (“Pickler & Ben”). Director Eric Close(“Nashville”) and star Wes Brown (“True Blood”) will attend both the Lighting Ceremony and the World Premiere to debut their new film.

In “Christmas At Graceland,” Laurel (Pickler), a Chicago-based business executive, travels to Memphis to secure one of the city’s oldest family-owned banks. While in Memphis, Laurel reunites with an old flame Clay (Brown), a local music promoter with loftier aspirations. Though Laurel tries to keep her eye on the prize of the business acquisition, Clay is very persuasive reminding her of the days when they were a performing duo on the brink of stardom. Now Laurel’s focus turns to the home of the blues and dreams of making music again. “Christmas At Graceland” is part of Hallmark Channel’s #1-rated program event, COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS, and will air exclusively on the Hallmark Channel on Saturday, November 17 at 8 pm/7c.

The Lighting is free and open to the public. The Premiere is a by-invitation, ticketed event, however complimentary tickets will be made available that night at the door, based on availability. Reserved seats are also available to anyone who purchases tickets to any Graceland attraction on November 15 prior to November 2. 

Seasonal holiday tours of the interior of Graceland mansion, featuring the Presley family’s personal Christmas décor, will be offered through January 8.

Can’t make it to Memphis for the Lighting Ceremony? Watch it on Livestream!


The holiday festivities continue with Graceland’s 2nd Annual Holiday Concert Weekend December 14-15, 2018. Last year’s inaugural Concert Weekend was a runaway success, delighting both visitors and local Memphians alike, and this year’s event promises to be even more exciting! The weekend will feature three incredible live concerts on the Graceland Soundstage as well as various Christmas Tips, Tricks and Crafts seminars at The Guest House at Graceland hosted by Lifestyle Expert JJ Keras, who has been regularly featured on the Today Show and Good Morning America.

The concert on Friday, December 14, will feature Elvis’ biggest Christmas hits with a live orchestra led by renown UK conductor Robin Smith, featuring local Memphis musicians, vocalists, choirs and dancers. On Saturday, December 15, there will be two themed concerts on one night: an Elvis Gospel Christmas concert starring former members of JD Sumner and The Stamps Quartet and The Blackwood Brothers,; and an Elvis Star-Studded Rock ‘n’ Roll show starring legendary guitarist James Burton of Elvis’ TCB Band. The Guest House at Graceland hotel packages, ticket-only packages and individual tickets are now available. For more detailed information please visit Graceland.com/Holiday  or call 901.332.3322.

I want to share my happiness with my visitors.  Jesse called me tonight and we had a really good visit.  He sounded wonderful and is doing well.  We talked about a lot of little things but no news this time to share.  He did tell me that he had been out for a ride and went to a bakery and had to remind himself not to enjoy too much of their wonderful treats.  He told me about a movie which he said is one of his favorites.  He thought that Tom and I should watch it if we had not seen it.  Tom said that he has watched it several times and really likes it too but I have never seen it.  So, I added that to my “want to do” list.  For others who may want to watch one of Jesse’s favorite movies also, the title is “No Country For Old Men” with Tommy Lee Jones.

9 Haunted Memphis Landmarks: Demons or Delusions?

Graceland

3765 Elvis Presley Blvd, Memphis, TN 38116 • (901) 332-3322
Hours: Most days, Graceland is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but check the website for specific hours of operation.

Everyone knows Graceland, the home of “The King,” Elvis Presley. The building preserves his memory, and maybe even something more. More than half a million visitors visit Graceland every year, and a significant chunk of these visitors have claimed to see Elvis just wandering around the building. They say he is seen gazing down from one of the windows, watching people enter his once home. Some even say they get him on camera because the images turn out very blurry.

This is very sad news…

Celeste Yarnall, Alluring Actress of the 1960s, Dies at 74

Celeste Yarnall

She starred as a jungle goddess in ‘Eve,’ played opposite Elvis in ‘Live a Little, Love a Little’ and got Chekov’s attention on ‘Star Trek.’

Celeste Yarnall, who appeared opposite Elvis Presley in Live a Little, Love a Little, had a memorable turn on Star Trek and donned a loincloth to play “the original flower child” in the jungle-set cult classic Eve, has died. She was 74.

Yarnall, a “scream queen” who was terrorized by a headless monster in Beast of Blood (1971), died Sunday at her home in Westlake Village, California, her husband, British artist Nazim Nazim, told The Hollywood Reporter. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in November 2014 and turned to a crowdsourcing site to help pay her medical expenses.

“She was magnificent in everything she did,” Nazim said. “She was my beloved queen.” They were together for nine years.

Yarnall is known to Star Trek fans for her portrayal of Yeoman Martha Landon on the October 1967 episode “The Apple,” in which Chekov (Walter Koenig) can’t help but fall for her. (She appeared as herself — one of 42 Trek alums — in the 2018 sci-fi comedy Unbelievable!!!!! and was a regular on the convention circuit for years.)

While attending the 1967 Cannes Film Festival, Yarnall was spotted by producer Harry Alan Towers, who was in search of a girl to star as the jungle goddess in his 1968 film. According to the actress, he yelled and pointed, ‘Stop that girl! That’s my Eve!'”

She took the role as the scantily clad Eve, who is the long-lost granddaughter of Christopher Lee’s character, but later called the film “one of the worst movies of all time.”

In Live a Little, Love a Little, also released in 1968, Yarnall played Ellen, a girl at a party who reasons she and Presley can’t hook up because he’s a Sagittarius. Undeterred, he tries to woo her by singing “A Little Less Conversation.”

The National Association of Theatre Owners liked what they saw and named her the “Most Promising New Star” of 1968.

A native of Long Beach, California, Yarnall was discovered by Rick and Ozzie Nelson while she walked past their studio offices on the way to an audition. She appeared on an episode of The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet in 1962 and then played college kids in Jerry Lewis’ The Nutty Professor and Jack Lemmon’s Under the Yum Yum Tree, both released in 1963.

In 1964, Yarnall became the 25th and last woman elected Miss Rheingold. She moved from Los Angeles to New York and made personal appearances for the brewer while modeling and doing commercials.

Yarnall played a vampire seductress in The Velvet Vampire(1971), produced by Roger Corman, and appeared in Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969), The Mechanic (1972) and Scorpio(1973) before concentrating on commercial real estate for years. She also earned a Ph.D. in nutrition.

She reappeared in Fatal Beauty (1987), Driving Me Crazy (1991), Midnight Kiss (1993) and Born Yesterday (1993).

Yarnall’s TV résumé also included BonanzaHogan’s HeroesIt Takes a ThiefCaptain NiceMannixBewitchedThe Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the 1971 pilot for Columbo.

In addition to her husband, survivors also include her daughter Cami, son-in-law Stephen and granddaughter Gaby.

StarTrek.com was the first to report her death.

My visitors may recall that she appeared in the film “Elvis Found Alive”.  She was filmed in an interview following that appearance and spoke of Elvis in her interview speaking of him in the presence tense because she actually met him during the filming.

Below is my video of this interview from my YouTube Channel.

ELVIS IS ALIVE – Celeste Yarnall Star Trek at Wonder Con 2012

Linda Hood Sigmon published

This video is an interview with the actress Celeste Yarnall who appeared in movies with Elvis and who became a friend who knew him well and, more importantly, understood a lot about him and how he thought. 

In this interview she speaks quite a lot about Elvis.  The most interesting part of this interview is that she speaks about meeting “Jon Burrows” during the filming of ELVIS FOUND ALIVE.  You will hear her say that she signed a confidentiality agreement concerning what she learned during the filming of that movie.  She states that she did meet a man named “Jon Burrows” who sounds like Elvis, looks like Elvis, and who knew things that only Elvis would know.  One can surmise from all she says that the man she met was actually Elvis Presley…which we do know to be true because Jesse wrote it in his own letter and told me so during our phone conversations. Of course, this is right in line with what Jesse told me about the film.  You may read Jesse’s two page letter which he wrote to me to be posted on this site.  Here is the link to the page on which you may read his handwritten letter detailing how he came to be involved in the making of that movie/documentary.  When Joel Gilbert first released the movie on DVD, he did call it a “documentary”.  However, the critics, who always rear their ugly heads, caused such a stink about it that he changed the description to “mockumentary”.

Hear Glen Campbell Sing Elvis Presley’s ‘Easy Come Easy Go’ – Rolling Stone

Hear Glen Campbell Sing Elvis’ ‘Easy Come, Easy Go’ for New ‘Sings for the King’ Album

Songs Campbell originally recorded as a demo singer for Elvis Presley will be released November 16th

A collection of songs Glen Campbell originally recorded as a demo singer for Elvis Presley to hear will soon see the light of day, as the lost album Sings for the King will be released November 16th via Capitol/UMe.

In the years between 1964 and 1968, during which he’d score his first hits as a solo artist, Campbell recorded studio versions of songs written with Presley as the intended artist, as he could skillfully imitate Presley’s delivery. Many of those songs were penned by songwriters Ben Weisman and Sid Wayne, with Weisman notably scoring a record 57 total cuts with Presley. The album’s executive producer Stephen Auerbach found reel-to-reel tapes containing the recordings of Weisman and Wayne’s songs in a storage space belonging to Weisman, his uncle by marriage.

Of the 18 songs on the new release, 12 were actually recorded and released by Presley, including “Stay Away Joe,” “Spinout” and “Easy Come, Easy Go,” the lost Campbell version of which is available for streaming now. Sings for the King also includes the gospel song “We Call on Him,” newly rendered as a duet between Campbell and Presley.

Campbell and Presley met in 1956, when Campbell was living and performing in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Later, Campbell would become a member of the studio group the Wrecking Crew, playing on hundreds of sessions that included his one Presley session for the Viva Las Vegas soundtrack. By 1967, Campbell had broken out as a solo artist, releasing the hit albums Gentle on My Mind and By the Time I Get to Phoenix and launching an extended run of musical and television success. All told, he sold over 45 million albums and landed 80 songs on several different charts. In 2017, he died at age 81 due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

Sings for the King Track Listing:

  1. “We Call On Him” (Duet With Elvis Presley)
  2. “Easy Come, Easy Go”
  3.  “Any Old Time”
  4. “Anyone Can Play”
  5. “I Got Love”
  6. “I’ll Never Know”
  7. “All I Needed Was the Rain”
  8. “How Can You Lose What You Never Had”
  9. “Spinout”
  10. “Magic Fire”
  11. “I’ll Be Back”
  12. “Love On The Rocks
  13. “Stay Away, Joe”
  14. “Cross My Heart and Hope to Die”
  15. “Clambake”
  16. “There Is So Much World to See”
  17. “Do the Clam”
  18. “Restless”

Elvis Presley, the Original Rock Star, Did Everything First

When Elvis Aaron Presley had the classic coming-of-age conversation with his parents about what he wanted to be when he grew up, Presley’s father had the typical parental response. “You should make your mind up to be a guitar player or an electrician,” he said. “But I never saw a guitar player that was worth a damn.”

Instead of grasping for the safety of a toolbox, Elvis followed his heart, subsequently changing the world by popularizing the rock and roll genre. More than four decades after his death, Presley is still a cultural icon. HBO recently produced a new documentary on him, the alternative rock band Twenty One Pilots had a viral hit with their cover of his classic “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You,” and his home is still a wildly popular tourist attraction in Memphis, Tenn. Most notably, however, Elvis constructed the rock star template.

I recently took a trip to Elvis’ iconic Memphis home, where “The King” spent the last 20 years of his life. I toured exhibits dedicated to the man’s childhood, his time in the Army, a step-by-step journey throughout his entire music career, a special exhibition celebrating the legendary Sun Records, and much more filling the 200,000 square foot complex.

While staring into a bullet hole Elvis infamously shot into one of his many TV sets, I couldn’t help but reflect on the most evident takeaway from my time at Graceland — Elvis did just about everything first.

Before radio stations refused to play the Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” because it was “too suggestive,” Elvis was being censored because of his “indecent” hip gyrations. Dubbed “The Pelvis” by American media, Presley’s moves caused a national panic — forcing The Ed Sullivan Show to only film him from the waist up.

Before anyone had coined the phrase “rock star,” Elvis was already living the lifestyle. During his lifetime, he purchased and traded over 200 cars. Presley also unloaded giant stacks of cash on motorcycles, boats, go-karts, snowmobiles, horses, pinball machines, pool tables, custom furniture, TVs for every room, gold-plated guns with mother of pearl handles, a racquetball court in his home, a pool with a diving board, and a shooting gallery to blast anything Elvis saw fit. While Led Zeppelin were renting out their legendary Starship plane, Elvis straight-up bought not one, but two, jets for his own private use.

These facets of Elvis’ life are somewhat common knowledge, but it’s what I didn’t know that affirmed Elvis’ place in my mind as the most revolutionary trailblazer in rock history. Years before the Beatles used their spiritual journeys to spearhead rock’s psychedelic movement, Elvis had already found a spiritual advisor — his hairstylist, Larry Geller — and built a meditation garden (where he was later laid to rest) at his home to utilize as a space for contemplation. Thanks to Geller’s guidance, Elvis flew through books on esoteric Christianity, Middle-Eastern poetry, the biography of India’s first yoga master, and much more… all while the Beatles were still singing “Help!” and “Ticket to Ride.”

Decades before U2 singer Bono became the face of rock star philanthropy, Presley was donating giant portions of his riches to charity. Having come from very humble beginnings, Elvis dedicated much of his life to helping the less fortunate, donating over $100,000 every Christmas since 1961 and spreading the money across 50 or more charities at a time. Copies of checks Elvis wrote to St. Jude, the YMCA, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and other organizations are lovingly framed at the Elvis Presley’s Memphis exhibit.

Elvis was also a radical through song, but beyond paving the way for rock and roll in the mainstream, Presley was one of the few members of the “Silent Generation” to address political issues through music. During his ’68 Comeback Special, Presley debuted “If I Can Dream.” The tear-jerking song was a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., premiering just two months after the civil rights leader was gunned down — in Memphis, no less. Elvis’ home state of Tennessee wasn’t the most progressive place, but still, Elvis shared his respect for Dr. King through the Earl Brown-penned track. Sung with the soul of gospel, “If I Can Dream” touched Elvis so deeply, he swore to never again sing a song he didn’t believe in.

Presley was also a pioneer of technology, becoming the first solo entertainer to hold a live concert broadcast internationally via satellite. The King’s 1973 Aloha from Hawaii special was the most expensive entertainment special ever at that time, costing a whopping $2.5 million. Airing the same night as the Super Bowl, 51 percent of televisions switched on in the United States were tuned to the Aloha special, reportedly being seen in more households than the moon landing was.

The stories of Graceland could fill a library, especially since the attraction changes every few months, but beyond Presley’s extravagant lifestyle, the story of his influence is told at the Icon Exhibit. Pieces of history from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, James Brown, KISS, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and more sonic immortals have been donated to Graceland out of respect for Elvis’ influence on each artist. Presley praise fills the room, leaving no doubt that Elvis was indeed the King:

“Before Elvis, there was nothing.” – John Lennon

“He was a unique artist – an original in an area of imitators.” – Mick Jagger

“There’ll never be another like him, that soul brother.” – James Brown

“None of us could have made it without Elvis.” – Buddy Holly

“There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one king.” – Bruce Springsteen

This is exciting news for all of us who wanted the 50th anniversary of Elvis’ 68 Comeback Special to be commemorated in a big way.

I thank my good friend Chris Mc. who brought this excellent article to my attention.

Elvis Tribute

EXCLUSIVE

JLo, Blake Shelton & Post Malone Joined Star-Studded Lineup for Ultimate ‘Elvis Comeback Special’

Elvis Presley is being honored with an all-star night of performances to commemorate his iconic 1968 TV special, and the big acts that showed up were definitely worthy of paying tribute to The King.

“The 50th Anniversary of the Elvis Comeback Special” taped this week on the Universal lot in Los Angeles on the same stage used for NBC’s “The Voice.” The production was so big, it took two days to film in front of a live audience.

Elvis’ daughter and granddaughter, Lisa Marie Presley and Riley Keough, shared in some of the hosting duties for the remake of his famous 1968 Comeback special. On December 3, 1968, Elvis performed live on NBC for the first time since 1961, and it ended up becoming NBC’s highest-rated show of the season.

Sources at the taping tell The Blast the lineup was absolutely insane and featured the hottest entertainers around performing Elvis’ greatest hits.

We’re told the first night included Blake SheltonPost MaloneKeith UrbanShawn MendesLittle Big TownMac Davis and Darius Rucker.

Interestingly enough, we’re told Miranda Lambert actually performed during the second night of filming with her group, Pistol Annies, which also includes Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley (no relation).

Sources at the show tell us Lambert seemed noticeably irritated throughout her performance and “walked offstage” as soon as the music was over. We’re told the audience members were speculating her sour mood was perhaps brought on by performing on “The Voice” stage, considering the history with Blake Shelton.

The second night also brought performances from Adam LambertJohn Fogertyand Dierks Bentley. We’re told it was an amazing night and the crowd was definitely left all shook up.

Along with the live performances, the tapings also included pre-recorded songs from Jennifer LopezCarrie UnderwoodEd SheeranAlessia CaraYolanda Adams and John Legend.

The special — which will also include rare Elvis footage, outtakes and interviews — will air in 2019.

Just want to share that Jesse called us two times Wednesday evening.  We were not home and missed his calls.  But, he left us two good messages which were very enjoyable to hear.  He is doing fine.  Of course, I was sad that I missed getting to speak with him but am very glad to know that he is doing alright.

I apologize for my absence this week.  I have been working on getting a new computer set up and getting all of my data loaded onto it from my Carbonite backup.  Things have not gone smoothly with the backup restore at all.  I still have a complicated mess to deal with.  I wanted to get the computer up and fully running before I began using it for my day to day work.  However, the prospects of that happening are not looking good.

The whole computer situation has turned into a nightmare.  The first new computer had to be returned to the seller after I worked on getting it set up and beginning the installation of my programs.  The description by the seller was not accurate and I did not discover that problem for several days.  

I do want to share that Jesse phoned on Tuesday afternoon but, once again, we were outside and missed speaking with him.  He left a good message again and, of course, I was happy to hear his voice and to hear him say that he is doing all right.  I have missed getting to speak with him for the last 3 weeks due to difficulties with his phone one week when he called back 4 times and his phone disconnected each time; he called two times last week and left messages; and now I missed his call again this week.

Sure could use some good luck about now. 

I thank everyone for your understanding and patience.

Below is a new Ebay listing of Jesse’s book which I want to share because this is the best price I have seen on a copy of it in a good long while.  I have been seeing high prices recently.

I will display a screen capture of the entire listing here along with a link to the listing in case you wish to purchase this book.  As you will see this is from a seller who donates all proceeds to charity and includes free shipping.

Below is proof that all of the hullabaloo over the spelling on Elvis’ grave stone has been totally wrong.  I have never bought into the Spelling on the Stone theory too much.  The only part of it that I have taken any great interest in is that Jesse told me that he had the “A” added to stand for Alive.  I feel certain that the ONLY reason that he ever even mentioned this at all is because, for over 30 years, Gail Brewer-Giorgio and others have all grasped onto the spelling theory and passed it around…so Jesse decided to play along with that since it seems to be one of the main things which people have latched onto.

Below you will see legal documents which Elvis signed himself in 1973 which prove that he was using the double A spelling of Aaron even way back then when signing legal documents.

“On November 11, 2017, the couple’s divorce papers are set to go on auction in England.”   

“Of perhaps keener interest to collectors than the distribution of property and income is the presence of Elvis Presley’s full signature, which is rarely seen.

Across the 12 pages there are three Elvis signatures–twice with his full name Elvis Aaron Presley and once with his initials EAP, ” reported Antique Trade Gazette. “Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge said these are exceptional examples of Elvis’ signatures and it is extremely rare to have Elvis sign his full name Elvis Aaron Presley with two As in his middle name. Priscilla signed four times–three as Priscilla Ann Presley and once with her initials PAP.”

I want to share the good news that Jesse did phone me again tonight and we finally got to speak.  He is doing well and sounded wonderful.  He is concerned about all of the stress going on due to the computer problems and extra work involved.  He is getting candy ready to hand out for Halloween as he always has many coming by.   It sure did lift my spirits to get to speak with him this time.

I want to share that Jesse phoned me this afternoon.  We were both in good spirits and we had a fun visit with some laughs.  He was looking forward to having lots of Trick or Treaters tonight. 

We laughed about the time he told me that I am a “hard headed woman“. 

I told him that I will whip my new computer into submission.  He said he knew that I would because I am a “hard, hard, hard headed woman“. 

I told him about an Email I received with something very lewd and vulgar in it plus a tale about him.  We also enjoyed some good fun talking about that and that it was all a lie.  He wanted to know what was in the photo that was sent to me and I told him that it was so bad that I couldn’t even tell him.  He told me that I could write and tell him and I told him that I couldn’t do that because it was so.o.o.o.o bad.  I did give in and told him that it had to do with a supposed nude photo of him.  He laughed and said “there aren’t any of those out there“.  I guess even bad things have a little bit of good to them if they give someone some laughter.  Laughter is the best medicine.  As always, Jesse’s call was the best medicine for me and made my day lots brighter.
