Elvis and Me

Wedding photos of Elvis and Priscilla seem like they belong in my family photo albums…that’s how engrained these photos are in my childhood memories. My dad loved Elvis and my aunt boasted one of the largest memorabilia collections, so there was no shortage of the King around.

I think Priscilla may have led me down the path of long dark hair and liquid eyes.

I also cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen the made for TV Elvis and Me.

Honey was 14 when she met Elvis. Can you imagine?


all that dark hair against all that white kills me.

He adopted the pseudonym .THAYAHT. around 1919, a “bifrontal” palindrome (visually symmetrical, it can be read from right to left, left to right, and in a mirror).

BORN  Ernesto Michahelles (1893-1959) he is best known for his revolutionary design of the TuTa and his involvement with the Italian Futurist movement.

I recently was exposed to the illustrations Thayaht collaborated in with couturière Madeleine Vionnet. Whilst digging up as many illustrations as I could find, I came across Thayaht’s sketches for the TUTA.  Amazing to think he is responsible for the first full one piece, very close to a modern day worksuit/overalls or for the ladies, playsuit.

back before the days of DVR and youtube,  I used to have an organized plan for recording music videos on VHS.  Especially on MTV when actual video play started to become a rare beast.  The most memorable video recording score was Last Goodbye.  I think I also had a ritual of watching the video every morning before leaving for school. I was just a ‘tad’ obsessed.  Catching Jeff via video offered a rare glimpse of Buckley to a girl living in New Mexico…



can we get much higher?

It is possible to love someone whom you’ve not met.
