Fly on the Wall 

Verbatim
Some over-the-top prose from GQ's feature about martial arts enthusiast/failed presidential assassin Everett Dutschke and Kevin Curtis, the Tupelo-based Elvis impersonator he appears to have framed for the job: "Spend a week or two in Tupelo, Mississippi, and you begin to wonder if the air down here perhaps contains an element that causes dreams to ignite and burn hotter and stranger than elsewhere in the world. What are the dreams that catch fire in this town? They are dreams of rock 'n' roll; of valor, metamorphosis, and ruination; sex and betrayal; of the government and shadowy forces; of the grand dream, American ... How else to understand a man like Kevin Curtis, one of northeastern Mississippi's preeminent Elvis impersonators, whose life was nearly ruined by the sight of a severed head on a refrigerator shelf?" Good question. Conspiracy-obsessed peckerwoods, maybe?

Adele in Memphis?
London tabloids are reporting that British pop singer Adele will play Dusty Springfield in a forthcoming biopic set during the recording of Dusty in Memphis. There's still no word as to whether or not any of the film will be shot in the Dan Penn Memorial Family Dollar on Chelsea and Thomas, where Chips Moman's American Studio once stood.
