Naked Yard Sale

Well, that's one way to drum up interest in your yard sale.

Neverending Elvis

Lots of Elvis news this week: Elvis Presley's gold piano, recently on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame, was put on eBay with expectations that it could sell for as much as $3.5 million. London's Daily Mail ran a lengthy piece about the bromance between Elvis and Tom Jones and their mutual dislike of John Lennon. And, according to a Georgia newspaper, a pair of socks that once graced the King's feet were reported stolen in August when an eBay deal went bad.

Headlines

A little alliteration goes a long way, so when the Memphis Business Journal published a food news story titled "The Pita Pit Picks Popular Place," it looked like the bold business broadsheet was a lock to earn the Fly-Team's coveted Headline of the Week title. Then The Tennessean ran with "Memphis Teen Charged with Killing Principal in Court," which is kind of like crashing your car in the emergency room but with more malicious intent.

iDunno

Who wants to buy Pat Halloran's used iPhone 4? Last week, the Orpheum CEO's old iPhone went up for grabs at the downtown theater's weekly online auction.

According to the item description, the phone's memory has been wiped clean, but it was personally used by Halloran so "it got a lot of use booking Broadway at its best" and is valued at $300.
