elvis is the king of cool

It was fantastic! It was a chilly night outside but no rain or snow. The audience was very interesting--it looked like there were a lot of people who came out of the hills for the first time in a decade. He totally rocked out. I think it was the best of the 3 Elvis Costello shows I've seen (1980, 1990, 2002--I try to catch him every decade!).

I don't have a set list, but many of my favorites were played including: What's So Funny About Peace Love & Understanding, Watching the Detectives, Man Out of Time, Deep DarkTruthful Mirror/You Really Got a Hold On Me (amazing!), Pump It Up, Allison, Spooky Girlfriend, Accidents Will Happen plus a lot of others that I know but don't know the names of (that's kind of how it is for me with Elvis--he has so much material and I don't have all his records, but I recognize a lot more than I actually know the names of).

I was looking for the setlist on his website and didn't find it, but I did find "Ask Elvis." You can actually ask him a question and he will respond. There are some really funny ones--check it out:

The King.

Ok, since there is obviously overwhelming interest in 'Ask Elvis' I thought I'd post a few Q/As:

Question:
To What do you credit you longlasting appeal?
asked by Simon on Thursday, May 2

Answer:
Animal magnetism

Question:
Have you seen U2's video for the song "Numb"? It is a total tribute (or rip-off!) of your video for "I Wanna Be Loved"! Have the guys every mentioned this to you?
asked by Benny on Friday, May 17

Answer:
I think it is actually a running gag with the fellers that whenever their video makers are stuck for an idea they re-make “I Wanna Be Loved”. See: “The Sweetest Thing”

Question:
Love your music, as well as your take on other people's music...Is it fair to say you have ambivalent feelings about Springsteen and his music? (based on comments I've seen in your interviews over the years) What do you think is his best work? Cheerio.
asked by Alan on Tuesday, May 28

Answer:
I can’t imagine how you got this impression. I feel it must have come from some misinterpreted remark. Bruce Springsteen is a remarkable writer and recording artist and my favourites of his recordings are spread throughout his career; “The Wild, The Innocent and the E-Street Shuffle”, “The River”, “Tunnel of Love” and “The Ghost of Tom Joad”. He is also an incredible concert performer and a very decent fellow with a charming wife who is also a tremendous singer. Just so you know.

Question:
Before i get to my question, i just want you to know how great you are, i saw you in las vegas last friday, and it was unbelievable. Anyways, back to my question..... Would you ever consider doing a Behind The Music for vh1? Thanx, Brendan

Question:Not to start a row, but after reading some of your interviews concerning 9/11, as well as other topics, I get the impression you are flirting with the concept that America somehow "deserved" what it got. I've also noticed you have some pretty "liberal" political views. I'm no conservative or flag waver myself, and I despise the "corporate culture" for more personal reasons, but I would like to invite you to actually educate yourself on topics of free markets, economics, military science, and world history, and not buy into the "propagandized" version of the world you seem to be receiving. For starters, try any of the writings by two great black american economists, Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. They put to rest in plain language many of the utopian feel-good views of socialists and what we call "liberals" here in America. You can find links to their columns at the website of your "seperated at birth" twin, Matt Drudge. www.drudge.com. My question? Why is the United States, which has always clearly and responsibly marked its landmine fields during war, a badguy for using them? Is someone killed with a landmine somehow any less dead than someone killed with a bullet? Anyone with any military background knows that used in this fashion (in clearly marked fields, where they serve as a deterrent to movement of troops more than as a killing weapon), they rarely kill anyone, being used instead to force ATTACKERS to find another route, or better yet, not attack in the first place. In Utopia, we wouldn't need them. Unfortunately, this is a world with a lot of bad dudes in it. So, when you come up with a magic formula for getting the tyrants of the world to agree to landmine bans, let us know. Then we can talk.
asked by Bruce in Georgia on Saturday, June 1

Answer:
I have always been amused by the unbelievably patronising attitude of people from the “Right”, as if it were a permanent condition rather than a simple orientation. You have either been misinformed or your reading skills are right up there with your spelling. I have not made any “statements” about “9/11” – no, I tell a lie, I performed a new lyrical version of the great Charles Mingus composition, “Hora Decubitus”, just ten days after “the events”. It contained the line, “Life is a beautiful thing”. You might say that was a “statement”. Oh yeah, I also read somewhere that there is a Commandment: “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” The lyric also contains the proposition, “If it’s wrong, it’s not right”. Take from that whatever you will, up ‘til now you clearly knew nothing about my beliefs, allegiances or “views”. As I have said before, this site is for fun and sport, it not a debating society, well, certainly not with a pompous clown like you. I can only direct you to: www.vvaf.org./ There you may read about the efforts of some of your countrymen and women, many of whom are actual veterans of serious conflict. They are seeking to learn from that terrible experience and improve the lot of the victims of “bad dudes” of every stripe – including a few of your own. Just occasionally, I am glad to live in a country that has only ever been on the receiving end of colonial aggression.

I've got your snot Martha!

I....didn't....get....to....go.

That's right, I missed Elvis Costello and lost $126.00 for the tickets.

So here's the story. About 3:00 on Tuesday, our gardeners leave after doing our lawns. We go outside to check their work because they always forget to do the work we pay them extra for. We then notice that the water meter box by the street is full of water and its gushing out onto the lawn.

We go call the gardener on his cell phone and ask him if he saw the leak...and he says "yes, but I knew it was something too big for me to fix." So we ask "um Raul..do you think you might have told us about the leak anyway so we could call a plumber?"

We called So Cal Water because we thought the problem was at their meter. No, it was on our side. We called a plumber who finally got here at 7:00 and said some tree roots had busted a pipe and he would have to fix it tomorrow. In the meantime, we've got gallons of water spewing out and a huge hole in our yard where they tried to find the leak. By that time it was 8:30 and we had completely forgotten about the concert.

It gets better...

They came back the next day and told us that the type of pipes we have are involved in a lawsuit and they can't replace just the broken section...they have to dig a trench across our entire front yard and replace the whole line. Right now my yard looks like 4 foot tall gophers have invaded and dug trenches everywhere. I'm not happy about this, at all. The didn't show up yesterday at all...and now, its 4:45 p.m., 4 days after they started this job...and they just drove up. Lovely.
