Graceland is now a national historic site..wtf?

First..if you have ever seen the inside of Elvis' home..the man's taste was in his ass. Its garish and gaudy as hell. I have seen better home decor in Oildale..and dude..thats saying ALOT.

Second, many historically important places are on the "list"..Monticello, The White House, and the Alamo are places that should be listed as historical monuments for we..the people..BUT GRACELAND??? wtf makes that an important historical landmark? Was it all those FBI badges ol Elvis got during his stint as a drug enforcement agent? Or maybe its that he holds the record for the most perscription drugs swallowed at one time by a fat, over-the-hill lounge lizard?

I'm sorry, but Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley surely lobbied for this honor, and its bullshit. I loved Elvis' music and his rich voice before he became a fat caricature of himself, with that huge gut and rhinestones coming out his ass..er..cape..

Fewer than 2,500 locations are designated as National Historic Landmarks across the US...this shouldn't be one of them.

16 people gave us their .02 cents:

I only have two words: Fuck Elvis..

dusty said...

oh my B...don't hold back darlin :P

Bruce said...

I hated that talentless tool from the first time I heard him, and my opinion hasn't changed one iota since then.

Sonicrusk said...

Ouch!

I've never been to Graceland. Bill Frist must have his grubby hands in this one. Grubby quack hands.

Sonicrusk said...

Dusty,

There is no way to comment on the immigration post at leftwingnutjob.

dusty said...

I know Sonic..its mostly a very personal post and I didn't want the rightwing nutjobs that come by to comment. I don't care what they think about that post, so I don't want them to comment. You can feel free to comment here if you would like..or email me with your thoughts and I will post them m'dear..

Sonicrusk said...

oh no, it's cool. I can understand your reasons. Makes some sense.

Ms. M said...

Oh girlie! Better not let my mother hear you say such things!! She was a minion of the Elvis thing up until he died. She even went to his funeral. Can you fucking believe it??? She thinks he's even still ALIVE. My mother is not a strange or flakey person either, but she does have a tendency to be a conspiracy theorist. Good GRAVY!

Kurt said...

i was like bruce when i was younger. hated elvis. hated disco, too.
i toured Graceland with the family though, back in the late 90s. my wife's mom was a big elvis fan. i can honestly say after taking the tour that i understood him a whole lot more. i think he did have a wonderful voice in his prime, too.
if the purpose of the list is to preserve landmarks of american culture and promote them, then, sorry dusty but graceland makes it. there is no denying the impact that elvis had on the culture of the country in the 50s and beyond. it is a landmark, not a monument.
so, do you think we should start lobbying for 700 haight ;-P

dusty said...

Actually Kurt, thats a damn good idea darlin..the Haight was da shit in its day and I was there..I used to go to Golden Gate Park and watch the dead, quiksilver messenger service and lots of others play for free on the weekends..it was great..

it had as much impact on us as elvis had on our parents I think..

black dog said...

Don't be cruel even if Elvis was a fool.

Whats next neverland ranch.

The Zombieslayer said...

Thousands of Americans visit Graceland every year. I'm not a huge Elvis fan, but Elvis was possibly the biggest American pop legend ever. So I'd have to disagree with ya here.

Seamus said...

I don't know what Washington asshat came up with this National Faux pas but this has got to be ... oh fuck ...I can't even give voice to this stupidity ... what kind of message is that sending out???
Hell, they can't even decided if he's DEAD or not!!! Pffffftttttttt! What? Have they had sightings of him at the White House or on Capitol Hill??? FUCK!!!!

Sonicrusk said...

dusty said...

Sonicrusk said...
