Good morning! Jerry is in the skies at the moment, the holiday is sadly over. He will check in with us when he can, wifi permitting.
Today is the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley back in 1977 (remember the Elvis is still alive conspiracy theories that used to abound?)
His music was never particularly my taste (although I have a few friends who will disown me for that admission) however he had an undeniable influence on rock and roll and other genres both contemporaneously and for decades afterwards.
Here is Jailhouse Rock from 1957 where he is all young and fresh-faced and innocent looking.
This is probably the Presley track I like the most, the JXL bowdlerised version of A little less conversation from 2002.
Hili is acknowledging the end of her holidays as well, although I suspect that her business as usual days look suspiciously similar to her leisure days.
A: You haven’t been here for a long time.
Hili: The holiday is over, it’s time to get back to the duties of the editor-in-chief.
Ja: Dawno cię tu nie było.
Hili: Wakacje się skończyły, trzeba wrócić do obowiązków naczelnej.
The bold explorer Leon is still on his travels though.
Leon: I will just check whether we are going in the right direction.
Since I posted the Elvis video this morning, Youtube has updated my Recommended Viewing lists and has completely repopulated the My Mix lists. It’s my own fault. I literally brought this on myself.
