Local Real Estate Comments and Ramblings


Is Elvis Alive?

One of the things about blogging is that we are supposed to write about things to help people get to know us. I thought of this fun fact about myself the other night and had to share. I can't think of any way to even remotely relate this to real estate.

I believe that Elvis is alive. There, I said it. Now, let me say that I am not a huge Elvis fan. I don't memorialize his birthday or the date of his alleged death. I don't think that I even own an Elvis record.


After looking at the Elvis is alive conspircies I just think that the chances are better than 50/50 that he faked his own death. Know doubt that many of you have heard the theories and all of the long list of "facts" that support them. There are 2 items that rally make me think:

1. The name on his grave is mis-spelled. Just a small clue that he might not be in there. C'mon, don't you think that if it was a mistake that somebody would have fixed the spelling?

 2. This is the big one for me. $1,000,000 life insurance policy was never cashed in! Of course the reason is that if was cashed it would be fraud since he is still alive!

So why would he fake his own death? I have always believed that it was simply to escape the life that he had created for himself. Elvis was just a simple southern boy and no longer could stand the trappings of his own stardom. The other theory is that he is in witness protection because of some sort of testimony that he was going to give against the mob. Of course that would explain alot about how he was actually able to pull the whole thing off. The feds were helping.

I don't lose any sleep over any of this. Honestly I am not real concerned whether it is true or not. But like I said, it hink it is better than 50/50 that he is still out there somewhere.

Remember, when the big news breaks, that I am the one who told you so!

p.s. Since Elvis is alive, that makes him the first living person to have a memorial postage stamp made ... Hey, why not if the Feds were in on the whole thing anyway ******************************************************

Well, who knows. If we are discussing Elvis what about Big Foot, Loch Ness?  It seems a same if he is alive and could only get peace by faking his death!  Have a nice holiday weekend!

Who knows! Thanks for sharing. Sometimes it is nice to read something off the wall like this. I just think that if he were alive- we would have known by now- but then again maybe not.

I know a few Elvises.  I don't think any of them sing though.

I think if Elvis were trying to fake his death he would have made sure his name was spelled right.  heaven only knows why his wife and family didn't fix it -

personally I think he was abducted by aliens.

One of the theories I read was that a corpse doesn't sweat, yet it was noticed that there were some sweat drops during the viewing.  The claim...this was a wax dummy, and wax dummies will have condensation and appear to sweat.

Like you I wonder, but I won't lose any sleep over it.  If he is alive, I wonder how the general public would react if it was found out that he is alive.  It would be hard for him to hide for long though, you just can't hide that voice.  When he speaks, it is truly unique and any fan anywhere would recognize him.

If he is alive do you think we will ever find out? 

Posted by Chuck Carstensen, Minnesota Real Estate Expert (RE/MAX Results) about 12 years ago

Kristin, I wonder about those things too.  But I don't think there are as many facts.  JMO

Rob,  I don't think we willl know the truth until he is truly dead :-)

Heath,  too funny

Karen,  The story is that the name i smisspelled because he's not there :-)  the link was funny as heck.  I love Ray Stevens

Gregory,  I have heard that about the corpse/wax dummy as well.  There was a book out a few years ago by a therapist that was counseling with Elvis.  He was living in Kansas City I think, under a different name and singing in the Church choir.

Chuck,  One day the truth will be known :-)

lol. Thanks for the laugh. My husband is a HUGE Elvis fan. I tolerate him. In his younger days I liked him and his movies.

Those facts...if they are true....do make you wonder.
