Ooompa Loompa skateboarding. Totally awesome.




When Elvis was drafted into the US Army in March, 1958, his monthly pay went from $100,000 to $78.

FIRST POST :) Yeah, my comment sucked. I just wanted to scribble something down so I could still be first. My real comment is, I wonder if he was treated differently by the drill sergeants during basic? I wonder if they would be harder on him?

Your Elvis story made me think of this random tidbit (I think Random should get a little random in return, right?)

We had several high school matinee performances of Mother Courage and Her Children, which is of course, a play about soldiers and war. We hosted a talk-back session after between the students, the cast, and the director Tony. They asked pretty standard questions, some of them pretty intelligent ones, and then one kid said:

Kid: How much money do actors make?
Tony: Well I'm actually not at liberty to tell you that, but it certainly isn't something we do for the money.
Kid: Then why do you do it?
Tony: *getting defensive* What? What do you wanna be after you graduate, an investment banker?
Kid: No, I think I'm gonna join up with the Marines.
Tony: Working there you'll make less money than we do and you'll probably be killed.

LOL!!!! guess you gotta admire his forthrightness. I guess he should have told the kid about Elvis.
