My first YouTube video

Since YouTube has yet to index my video, I’m posting a link here for you to enjoy. So the story behind this video montage is simple. All my friends usually ask me why I’m such an Elvis fan and I really never know how to explain it. I generally ramble on about how the first compact disc I ever heard was an Elvis cd and how I was introduced to his legendary life by way of books from the library when I was younger, but I never really capture the essence of what it is.

I decided to compile a series of clips that I think really captures this essence so when anyone asks this question again, I can just show them the video. With that said, check and out and let me know what you think.


If the video disappears from YouTube, I’ll try and repost it here directly. Also, stay tuned for other vids I may post because I have a lot of ideas in my head.

Danny Gans–Dead!!

What the hell?! I was just in Las Vegas staying at the Wynn Resort thinking to myself that I should go watch the Danny Gans show and here we are on May 1st, and he is now dead.

Here’s a quote from Wikipedia mentioning this news:

On Friday, May 1, 2009, Gans died unexpectedly at his home in Henderson, Nevada. He complained of shortness of breath around 3:30 a.m., but by the time the paramedics arrived, Gans had already died. The cause of death is unknown. He is survived by his wife, Julie, and three children, Amy, Andrew and Emily.

I never got to see the show, even when he was at the Mirage, but everyone always told me I should. There’s nothing more to say. Rest in peace, sir.


His website as of 12:52pm today is still in its original form, however, clicking on the purchase tickets link sends you over to Encore’s website where a simple message is displayed informing you no events are scheduled.

As of today, May 2, 2009, Wynn Las Vegas has changed their marquee to represent this tragic event:
