In 2019, Austin Butler heard Baz Luhrmann was making a movie about Elvis Presley. The actor put all meetings and other auditions on hold to focus on #Elvis: “I knew that the only way that I could do it was if I gave it everything that I had.”…
While preparing for the role, Butler tried performing “Love Me Tender,” but it didn't feel right. He thought of his late mother, how he and Presley shared that grief, and sang “Unchained Melody.”

“Channeling those emotions just felt true,” he says.…
Butler's tape impressed Baz Luhrmann: “It didn't feel like an audition. It felt like a spycam.”

Butler went through several months of Elvis workshops, acting and singing in character, before he won the role.…

I took a road trip from Memphis to New Orleans and gained a new appreciation for Elvis Presley

🎸Damien Gabet for @iPaperTravel…
@iPaperTravel 🎞️ The King’s formative years are chronicled in a new biopic by Baz Luhrmann, with a sharp focus on the musical cradle in Memphis, Tennessee – and it features plenty of places that you can still visit today.

@iPaperTravel 📍 🚘 Gabet went on a road trip through the Deep South to get under the skin of The King.

He rides shotgun in a ’55 Cadillac Fleetwood – Elvis’s favourite car – and starts his tour in the still-spinning Sun Studio to learn more about how The King of Rock ’n’ Roll came to be.

Baz Luhrmann's splashy #Elvis biopic attempts to make the King relevant to a new generation. But 50 years after Presley's last hit, is it simply too late?…
“No one I know under 30 cares or knows much about Elvis,” says Pitchfork editor in chief Puja Patel. “The classic version of rock ’n’ roll just doesn’t exist the way it once did, and that’s in large part because younger audiences are less interested in it”… Image
Enter the biopic.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Rocketman,” “Respect” and “Pistol” all bring music and artists to a new generation. But is Elvis too old — not to mention too white and too male — for resurrection in 2022?…

BUY-IN VS FREEROLL #ElvisMovie #Elvis… Regardless of their specific conditions and features, all online slot tournaments fall into two categories based on their entry rules: buy-in and freeroll. The former means players have to pay an entry fee to take… part in a certain event while the latter provides absolutely free access. Buying a “ticket” doesn’t bring any advantage, however, as a rule, buy-in tourneys have more massive prize pools. On the other hand, freerolls

Abro hilo del rumor de la separación de Shakira y Piqué, supuestamente, por una infidelidad del defensa del FC Barcelona

Resumen de su historia: se conocieron en mayo/2010, cuando Shakira fue llamada por la FIFA para hacer la canción del Mundial de Sudáfrica.

Ella quedó fascinada con él, intercambiaron números, luego mensajes y después él le prometió ganar la copa para así poder verla en la final
Después de unos meses, Shakira anunció su separación con su entonces novio, Antonio de la Rúa, y aunque mucho se especulaba sobre su relación con Gerard Piqué, no fue hasta marzo del 2011 que lo hizo oficial publicando una foto:

"Les presentó a mi sol... Shak"

Optimism is in the air in Hollywood as the summer movie season kicks off this weekend with the release of #DoctorStrange2. The @AP is here to guide you through what’s coming to the big, and small, screens this summer.
After two down years because of the pandemic, analysts say summer profits could approach 2019 levels. Pre-pandemic, the summer movie season regularly accounted for around 40% of the year’s grosses.
Expectations are high for #TopGunMaverick, which sees Tom Cruise reprising one of his most iconic roles, has waited in the wings for two years for the right moment to fly into theaters. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer says he never wavered in wanting to release it in theaters.

“My Man” - ‘MM’ is the track that kick started it all.

MM provided the impetus that began the creative work for the @jilldjones ‘JJ’ album.

So from that POV alone, it’s a very important track.

#jilljones Image
MM was constructed over a period of 7 months at Sunset Sound.

On 10 May 1985, after finalising the configuration of the Mazarati album, P created the initial version of MM.

On 12 May 1985 P recorded overdubs & it’s also possible that JJ laid down the vocals on this date. ImageImage
In that same month, P was laying down tracks & configuring several other projects including Parade, The Family, ATWIAD, Dance Electric, Manic Monday & Roadhouse Garden.

He was also working on a no. of unreleased tracks.

And also planning UTCM & scouting for movie locations🤯 ImageImage

With the County in lockdown and knowing he'd be home, I took the chance to catch a few moments with @Recluseuk/@oldsamuelband lead singer/guitarist, @BrittRecluseuk learning that it maybe it wasn't Lisa Simpson that peaked his interest in music...

Do you remember when you were first aware of music?

BR: One of the earliest memories involving music that I have is travelling in my dad’s car to a holiday somewhere in England listening to Freddie Mercury’s I Was Born to Love You, I was pretty much raised on #Queen & #Elvis
BR: I must have been around 4-5 years old.

Are you a still fan?

BR: They are indelibly linked to so memories that I’m definitely fond of them. There are specific songs by each that make my trousers fly away, I look at you, ‘It’s Late’ and Innuendo..

Do you know of any "secret occultists?" Who do you know of that was deep into the occult but the public seems to just gloss over?

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Here’s a fun story for you. I spent 3 years learning about this guy, Phil Kitzer, the greatest con artist you’ve never heard of. 1/

Kitzer spent 8 days testifying in his own defense. He was hypnotic, charismatic. After 3-month trial, the jury believed & acquitted him. 3/
