Your Elvis rooms

Tue Sep 24, 2013 5:28 pm

I know there's a thread on her with some amazing Elvis rooms, but I appear to be rubbish at searching.
Can someone link me to it please, so I can drool over your collections?

Also, a question.
Does anyone know where the beaded fringe suit is? I believe there were two.
Is one stilll owned by Graceland? Only it wasn't on display anywhere when I went in the Spring.

My wife isn't an Elvis fan, so he is a source of drama and ridicule. I have to tuck most of my things out of sight.

I've been an Elvis fan since '72 and married since '83. The Elvis collection isn't going anywhere.

And she knows it.

Mine tells me I wasn't fair and didn't let her know what an Elvis freak I was when we were dating, and let it all out after marred, I mean married. :)

Here's what you do. Tonight, ask her to sit down because you have something you want to talk about. Tell her that you are sick and tired of hearing her drivel about your Elvis collection. Tell her that Rob's wife never says anything about his and the bullshit stops tonight. Tell her to shape up or ship out. Then tell her she is excused from the meeting.

Let me know how it goes.

You keep saying " I MEAN MARRIED" What do you mean by saying "I MEAN MARRIED", sounds odd, like you're her slave or doormat, sorry man, but that's what It sounds like to me. I would never let anyone control me, and tell me how things are going to be in a marriage, that's straight up bullshit, I would tell my wife, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Read closely. He is saying that he's "marred." Then says, "I mean married."

I'm pretty sure he's joking (somewhat).

Marred Married, saying he has to tuck most of his things out of sight, sorry but this all sounds whipped to me, marriage is a two way street.

But it all changes tonight.

In my younger days when still lived with my parrents i had an Elvis room. Since i got my own house with my girlfriend who is now my wife i store my elvis things away in closets or cabinets, book shelves etc. Not that the wife has a problem with Elvis but i want to keep the collection in good shape. Sunlight, dust, dry air can do weird things. Right now in the Carribbean i keep them really stocked in the closet. Every day over 30 degrees Celsius, high humidity is killing. I wonder how other fans living in South America keep their cdś and dvdś and books in good shape. In Europe you can keep your collection in perfect shape because of the cool and (mostly) dry climate. I know there are a few fans from Brazil, Chile, Argentina they live in a very humid and hot climate.

Man I am glad I live on the East Coast of New England In the USA, we have all the Seasons of the year, Spring, Fall, Winter, Summer, my collection has never suffered the harshness of the high heat parts of the World. Also none of my Elvis Collection has sunlight hitting It.

I remember learning that lesson very quickly about leaving a Vinyl Record In the Sun, when I was a kid, I left a copy of "Elvis" 1968 NBC Comeback Special" on my bed, and when I came back home, It was all warped by the Sun, boy was I upset, I even tried playing It a few times to see if it would play, but all It did was go round and round and up and down while it kept skipping.

I had to save up my allowance before I could buy another copy, I actually still have that Sun Warped copy in my collection still to this day,
Just for Ol' Times Sake, did ya catch that phrase I just used from Elvis 1973 "Album Raised On Rock" which has that song title on It. :lol:

JaneTLC, search on "do You Have An Elvis Room" and the thread you're looking for will appear...

Had a working/Elvis room but gone now as it's currently a baby room.
I'll get a new chance when we move few years from now.

It will probably be a more generic Rock space, with 90% Elvis of course;)

The giveaway was when you flew to Memphis for your wedding, donning your jumpsuit, then whisked her to the Graceland Chapel where you were 'married' by an awful looking irritator in an ill fitting costume! :wink:
