When I was a young boy I always felt like it was my fault I didn't like Elvis movies.

Any other misapprehensions of childhood to share, you fellow neurotics or misinterpreters?

I also confused Liberace with Grandpa on "The Munsters," which made me think that every vampire was somehow nasty and "after me." I don't define what that meant, but I was damned sure I didn't want Liberace anywhere near me, no way, no how.

Zzzzzzzzz. Your posts are always stupid, OP.

Oh, Elvis. Seeing him an old TV special as a boy (he died before I was born) was the first time I knew I was gay.

Ok, the words "first time" implies there were other times, but you know what I mean

I meant R2. Ugh. Shutting up now.

You killed Elvis, OP!

That's understandable.

R17 I had a similar fear of Little Richard that you had of vampire Liberace, OP, but he kind of excited me too. An awakening, if you will.

^^ That’s obviously for OP, not R17.

I hated my grandparents and dreaded having to go see them. On both sides.

We called my Uncle Heinie and Aunt Emma "Heinie and His Enema." That was at 10.

R1, I recall the smell of you, too.

His movies sucked but he always looked good.

This thread's title is epic and excellent, and should become a new piece of DL memorabilia.

OP You didn't like his voice? He could really sing . Don't Be Cruel, All Shook Up, Suspicious MInds, don't hurt the ears.

I lost it for Elvis when he ignored Velma from Scooby Doo in "The Trouble With Girls"

You’d think it would be Elvis’s fault.

Last year I watched a bunch of Elvis movie. Some of them are truly awful but there’s some I quite enjoyed. Loving You, Jailhouse Rock, King Creole, G.I. Blues, It Happened at the World’s Fair, Girls! Girls! Girls!, Viva Las Vegas, and Change of Habit.

My childhood phobia was Bonnie Franklin. I’d run out of the room whenever One Day At A Time came on because I was terrified that if I saw her bizarre smile, my own face would freeze into that same expression.

Change of Habit is hilarious. I still channel the old priest ranting about nuns in flapper skirts!

I was pretty excited to see Elvis play Charro. Then I was disappointed to find out it was NOT about a Latina Guitar player.

The way mum used to talk about Elvis and how much she'd liked him made me conclude he was an old boyfriend. At the time I had no conception he was famous

Elvis once said that “King Creole” was the only one that he liked.
