I'm making flowers out of paper
While darkness takes the afternoon
I know that they won't last forever
But real ones fade away to soon
I still cry sometimes when I remember you
I still cry sometimes when I hear your name
I said goodbye and I know you're alright now
But when the leaves start falling down I still cry
A Tribute to Elvis Presley - From DemolitionLover
A photo montage tribute to Elvis using Alannah Myles 'Black Velvet'. Nicely done with some delicious colour images. The celebrity quotes ex 'shakey film' is rather good. "He was and is the greatest. Enjoy" - says the creator!
- From the lyrics to Black Velvet..
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild.
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl
'Love me tender' leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true.
... Black velvet if you please.

|EIN Update July 2 2007 - Another week of clampdowns from the Elvis Internet Police! Yet again there has been a high level of activity by the Elvis Internet Police with hundreds of clips removed (Noted above). Warner Bros have been playing spoil-sport to counteract footage from their up-coming movie re-releases. This seems strange as you would think that a cool YouTube clip is actually cheap publicity that would encourage fans to buy theofficial DVD! Similarly Warners remove the very popular 'Elvis On Tour' footage yet have no plans to release a special edition DVD that fans have been clamouring for since 2002. Disappointingly over six months since EPE started their 'Elvis Presley Central' it still features a paltry four clips. How on earth do EPE expect this to raise Elvis'profile and be a site "visited often by fans"? This week YouTube itself has also removed some of the best-known posters of Elvis clips, for instance Elvos77 and Robbo42 along with all their clips. (EIN News bulletin July 2nd 2007)
YouTube begins removing illegal Elvis footage: When EPE announced their plans to officially use YouTube to exploit the "Presley brand", EIN knew it wouldn't be long before illegal footage would start being removed. So far only the 'On Tour Outtakes' footage and 'That's The Way It Is' material has been removed. The notification says, "This video has been removed at the request of copyright owner Warner Bros Inc because its content was used without permission". Hopefully the positive result will be that Warners will see the enthusiasm Elvis fans have for this kind of material and they will finally release the long-awaited 'Elvis On Tour' DVD. 2007 has to be the key year to market these major releases. So far EPE has sadly only managed to post THREE videos at their 'Elvis Central'. See some removed clips noted above (EIN News bulletin Jan 21st 2007)
Official Elvis channel on YouTube: Recently, EPE posted on YouTube.com two promotional videos - one for Elvis: The Ultimate Film Collection (DVD set) and one for Christmas at Graceland 2006. EPE has now started up an official channel for Elvis videos on YouTube.com called Elvis Presley Central.
Elvis Presley Central debuted yesterday with Having Fun With Elvis In Burbank, the "funny reel" that is a bonus feature on the 2006 release Elvis: '68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD. Next up on Elvis Presley Central will be a special music video for A Little Less Conversation, which Elvis Insiders are now having a "first look" at in the members-only area of their site.
We hope you will enjoy Elvis Presley Central and help make it a popular channel on YouTube.com by visiting often and telling all your friends about it. Your support could also help Elvis have a big hit video on YouTube from time to time. Elvis Presley Central is one of many new ways to take Elvis and his work to new audiences. We also hope it will be a source of enjoyment and pride for his existing fan base as well. (News, Source: EPE January 10 2007)

Elvis Presley Marketed To Fresh Generation Of Fans via the internet and digital sources:
Elvis Presley’s marketing company is set to target teenagers and young people in 2007 in a bid to get the ing known to a new generation of fans. Paul Janowski, chief of marketing for Elvis Presley enterprises Inc, says they plan to make use of sites like YouTube and Myspace to exploit the Presley brand. Other digital tactics such as mobile phone technology and podcasts will also be targeted in the incentive.
He explains: “I can't try to sell somebody Elvis who doesn't know who he is ... that he's not just some guy who's been gone for 30 years. "Our opportunity demographic is really going to be 12 to 34 (years old), with a sweet spot around the 18-to-24 area.” Janowski continued to Billboard: “We will take our MySpace page and we will focus on expanding our number of friends on MySpace, that kind of thing. There's all kind of Elvis content on YouTube, things that we put up, things that fans put up." The Elvis Presley brand is still massive, with his state earning around $42million in 2006. His company now wants to expand that figure.
