ELVIS:The Kings Sideburns

About twenty years ago I did this thing with a photocopied Elvis LP cover and some construction paper. Some of it isn’t as funny as I remembered it but with the magic of the interweb I get to inflict it upon the multitude* of my loyal readers. Enjoy! (click on photo to enlarge)

*in this case, the word multitude may describe a group as small as two people.

    You know, Mojo Nixon once wrote a song called “Elvis Is Everywhere” (yeah, that’s right, I’m still stuck on Mojo from the previous post ….. mmmm, stuck on Mojo …. Stuck Mojo ….. hey, that’s a cool name, Imma start a band and call it that ….. man, I’m so creative, don’t be stealin’ that from me).

    Anyway, has anyone ever been told by their parents to eat whatever, because it will put hair on your chest? Well, Elvis’ Pappy told him that eating would grow hair on the side of his face. At that point, Elvis became a verocious eater. In one interview, he said that he could demolish eight deluxe cheese burgers, two bacon-lettuce-and-tomato sandwiches and three milkshakes in a single sitting, thus providing the foundation for the continued success of the world famous sideburns and inspiration for Tim to cut up construction paper.

    In conclusion, I’d like to end this with a line from Mojo Nixon’s “Elvis Is Everywhere” ….. “Make me be born again in the perfect Elvis light”.

  1. Elvis just makes you want to do things

    Ahh, construction paper. Where has it gone? Will you favor us with a colorful Thanksgiving turkey made from a tracing of your hand?

  2. Pretty funny, but I would also like to see the thanksgiving turkey with the hand tracing too, boy I forgot all about those 🙂

    i remember this well, you showed it at robin’s studio – there were other artists there with their stuff too, Yours was the highlight, though, for me. Totally unpretentious, hilarious and inventive. Still love it. I hope you are still doing this kind of thing.
    thanks for that!
