We thought it most amusing when we learned that Elvis shot his TV when he would see Robert Goulet, but we guess this man took that kind of anger a bit too far. A man in Joplin, Mo. got so irritated at the DTV transition that when he lost his cable and couldn’t get the converter to work, he shot his television. Apparently, he had been drinking at the time, still that was an extreme reaction. He was charged with unlawful use of a firearm.

While we are on the subject of Elvis, we figure if you cannot afford the car, you can still have a piece of him with the Singing Mug. Light activated, lift it up and it starts crooning “Love Me Tender.” While we would much rather wake up to The Stones singing “Mother’s Little Helper,” this is at least a start and may give someone an entrepreneurial idea. A bit pricey at $71.00, it has an on/off switch when you have had your fill of caffeine and the King.

Elvis’ Estate has decided to sell a piece of the King that he personally customized. His 1965 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible is up for auction by Daniel Schmitt & Company through December 15 on eBay at a starting bid of $119,900.00. Co-created by Kustom King George Barris, the vehicle features 40 coats of gold paint, a gold-upholstered interior with guitar-shaped sun visors, and gold records mounted into the tonneau cover.
There is even low-rate financing available with payments of $1,220.00 with a down payment of $24,000.00. Unfortunately, the Caddy wasn’t finished until after Elvis’ death, but we are sure he have would said, “Thank ya vera much.” We think it is worth the price just for the tacky puffy dice on the rear view mirror.

A part of Elvis is up for bid on the eBay block through August 18. Part of the original furnishings at Graceland between 1957 and 1969, the Knabe & Co. Baby Grand was built to personal specifications in white with gold trim and comes with a bench that includes a covered cushion. Don’t even think about making a bid unless you can come up with the $250,000 minimum. We realize that the upkeep at Graceland is probably expensive, so think of it as a large donation to helping out the King, just in case there is another sighting. Late one night you might hear some ghostly strains of “Love Me Tender.”
