ELVIS FOUND ALIVE is, despite its pretense and tackiness, basically a biography of the man. It compiles facts and quotes from various sources and links them together, more or less chronologically, offering no new factual data and no interesting opinions or insights. You pretty much know it’s a “mocumentary” of some sort from the get-go.
Those forty-two words are as far as I got when I put this piece on hold but—goldang it!—I pressed the PUBLISH button instead of the SAVE DRAFT button again. Now I might as well leave it up and running until I get around to completing it.
I will get around to reviewing this “documentary” eventually but I can tell you that, while there is nothing new there for most older fans, it’s a very entertaining video a well worth sitting through.
Goldang it again!

Mystically liberal Virgo enjoys long walks alone in the city at night in the rain with an umbrella and a flask of 10-year-old Laphroaig who strives to live by the maxim, “It ain’t what you know that gets you into trouble; it’s what you know that just ain’t so.
I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn, and a college dropout (twice!). Occupationally, I have been a bartender, jewelry engraver, bouncer, landscape artist, and FEMA crew chief following the Great Flood of ’72 (and that was a job that I should never, ever have left).
I am also the final author of the original O’Sullivan Woodside price guides for record collectors and the original author of the Goldmine price guides for record collectors. As such, I was often referred to as the Price Guide Guru, and—as everyone should know—it behooves one to heed the words of a guru. (Unless, of course, you’re the Beatles.)
