Elvis on American Idol



All day Thursday, I tried to figure out why the whole Elvis/Celine Dion thing on American Idol Wednesday night freaked me out so much. As I lay in bed tonight, it hit me so I had to get up and write this.

Have you ever read the Stephen King book Pet Sematary? If you have, I need not say more. If you haven't read the book, read it. I want everyone to be as creeped out as me. It's my little creepy gift to you.

Hey I saw a bit of that, when I was checking for something blue, very creepy. I haven't read the book, but Steven King creeps me out.

I thought it was because Celine is a living Vegas legend and "Elvis' is a dead one, plus his singing wasn't very good IMO. It was creepy enough for me to forget about looking for something blue and read a nice cozy instead, one about crazy relatives and extreme croquet.

Elvis not very good?! Bite your tongue woman.

Oh, yeah, that is a VERY creepy thought. I'm still scared of scruffy gray cats and quiet little boys.:)

Serena Joy - I know!!!!!!!!

I have read Pet semetary but can't remember anything but the scariness---does this mean CĂ©line is dead, or just that she should be buried alive?

And thanks for Singshot---I spent hours on it, searching for you

I wasn't sure what to think of the Celine/Elvis thing. It was kinda cool and kinda creepy. I don't know.

Laurie said...

Lorna - You're welcome. :) :) :)

Leslie - I read where someone called it "creeptastic." I think that about says it.

I so wanted the judges to critique Elvis' performance.

How do you tell The King he was pitchy in spots?

Laurie said...

Grimm - Hahahaha!
