It's not just Elvis (inspired) Poppet, it's Vegas Elvis (inspired) Poppet. That really is far too cool for words. Love it.

OMG does that mean that there could be a Jailhouse Rock Poppet Elvis! That would be awsome.

Amazing! Hope you're enjoying some sofa time this weekend.

Thanks Grace. I'm not really an Elvis fan, but I have a sincere appreciation of who he was.
My mother and aunt were fans though. What I remember is their excitement, which was a very positive thing for me.

Drinne: Could be. Perhaps someone will commission him too.

Melissa: Last night I watched The Prophesy. Seen it before, but was inspired by certain aspects. So, sigh, I reached for notebook and pen. Still, I WAS on the sofa.

Always referred to him in that phase of his career as Velvis - either for Vegas Elvis or Velvet Elvis (would the plural be Velvii? My Latin was 30+ years ago...)

Do you mean the 1995 Christopher Walken film, or the 1979 giant-mutated-bear film? Both are interesting, in their own way...

I've been on a Japanese samurai movie kick recently, mostly as an excuse to re-watch Yojimbo, one of my top three movies.

David: The 1995 film about the war in heaven. I've been thinking about this lately, this theme that comes up in many religious and horror films. I talked about it in Dark Dreamers (Beth Gwin/Stanley Wiater). There comes a moment when one (the protagonist) is forced to put aside his/her beliefs and accept something different. That moment of letting go can be the true heart of horror, or an epiphany.

I also decided, watching it, that the only concept of Hell that works for me even remotely would be a temporary one---like a jail sentence, only even less pleasant.

Way too cute.

You have to insist that the recipient quotes the the "thank you...thank you very much" line!
