Fly on the Wall 1359 

Elvis wizards and polar bears.

Neverending Elvis
A huge auction held at Graceland over Elvis' birthday week in January resulted in the sale of the King's first Phillips Recording Service pressing. The record, which features "My Happiness" on one side and "That's When your Heartache Begins" on the flipside, sold to a mystery bidder for $300,000. The bidder turned out to be none other than a rocker who has since announced that his Third Man label will make 10-inch, 78-rpm copies of the historic disc available for Record Store Day on April 18th. Of course, none of that is as important as this snuggie-like blanket I found in a store in Middle Tennessee that turns the wearer into an Elvis Wizard.

An Elvis Wizard with the power to completely deflate his or her body.

Sadly, this is a superpower the actual Elvis never possessed.

Neverending Payton
It turns out that Elvis isn't Memphis' only white-suited megastar. Last week, the Memphis Zoo posted a video of Payton the polar bear rolling around in the snow to its Facebook page. The video quickly received nearly half a million views.
