If a major motion picture were to be made about the people on this mb, Tom in North Carolina would be played by grumpy old man Walter Matthau. Dr. John Carpenter played by self-righteous man Alan Alda. And I would be played by heroic everyman Harrison Ford.

Yeah, I'm sure that's exactly what would happen. Hey, maybe you could get an honorary Oscar for your performance there, Harrison.
Tue Jun 10, 2003 9:49 pm
perhaps you will win one and find a place to fascilitate it sideways.
Please stop being so grouchy and mean to people here.

I may be alot of things, but grouchy ain't one of them. In fact, I'm as happy as a clam (whatever that means).

You don't even want us to get started on who would play you. Of course, we would have to get multiple actors for your multiple logins.

I would have suggested "Flipper" but I believe he would have difficulty typing with flippers....jinkies! I could be on to something here?

Wasn't Flipper pretty intelligent? Well, he's out.

I may have missed something here - but why should Elvis qualify as a humanitarian?
Unless giving money and cars away fills the bill?
Or did he moonlight at some Memphis soup kitchen?

I've nominated him ccrider - c'mon people, let's do it...let's do it in Huggies!
Thu Jun 12, 2003 2:30 pm
I just thought "why not ?"
It would be funny if he won!
Ooh, a century of posts - not many Englishmen can they that, eh Carolyn! lol.
Btw, I'm getting my exam results today!
Thu Jun 12, 2003 2:42 pm
Not long now Carolyn!
Yes, I agree with you wholeheartedly on this one.
I won't be voting for the Acadamy Award for his films, although I do see the point of those gunning for him.

I think part of it is that Elvis has passed, and we've all heard so much bad that some of us tend to shadow the bad to compensate. I'm pretty guilty of that, myself - but I do it because of the very reason you said, some don't have the same love for Elvis as we fans do.. so until they share some of that understanding, you give them info they can "handle" so-to-speak.
When people who knew Elvis speak, I like to hear the whole story, but because Elvis has passed on, it's touchier, and easier for some to (meaning to or not meaning to) cross the line from "talking frankly about their friend" to "not showing proper respect for the deceased". Granted, it's been awhile, but that feeling is still there since he can't answer back.
It's quite a thin line when you think about it, and there's enought "personal smoke & mirrors" around that everybody has a different idea of where that line is.

Yep, that's cool!
I take on all detractors with information - works most every time.
It's cool how many are getting into Elvis.. I'm 23, and been a fan all my life.. and now I'm finding a good number of others coming around, too! It's a great time to be a fan!

Why should Elvis be given that award. I still have not read a reason for this.
