Paleo-conservative radio host Alex Jones recently name-checked The Memphis Flyer as a source in a report titled "Devil Pyramid Rotting in Memphis." Jones' YouTube report connected Memphis to the occult, fetish videos, and a secret ruling class that loves spooky stuff. Here's what he said:
"Now the [Pyramid] is cursed. ... No one would go there anymore because of deaths and flooding and electrical problems. ... There was a skull up in the top, a crystal skull ... a little demon monkey, and little goblin charms hidden up in the capstone in a little metal box. And it just goes to show that the people who run the planet are really into this."
Actually, people stopped going to the Pyramid because of a non-compete clause signed when the Grizzlies moved to the FedExForum. Crushing competition is what the people who run the planet are actually into.
Elvis' music has assisted in a crucial breakthrough that may help doctors treat Williams Syndrome, a disorder resulting in mild retardation and an overly trusting nature. Research has shown when these patients listen to Elvis' "Love Me Tender," there is a spike in hormones associated with feelings of love. This new understanding may result in more effective treatments.
Neverending Elvis II
Don't you just hate it when a plan backfires? Like when you plan to make money off of Elvis fans by selling the King's gently used crypt, only to have Elvis fans worldwide tell you you're being tacky. Julien's Auctions has decided not to sell Elvis' crypt following a worldwide protest by fans who demanded that it be kept as a shrine.
