Lucky and Deke at the Elvis Grave

It was 1992 and the candlelit walk took us into the early hours of August 17th, Elvis singing gospel songs from speakers in the trees. Me and my cousin Dennis in our alter-egos--Lucky Jackson and Deke Rivers--from Elvis's character in the movies VIVA LAS VEGAS and LOVING YOU, respectively. Easily one of the most surreal moments of my life. Walking in Memphis, baby do you know how I really feel?...Wayne

I'm a little frightened that you remember the names of the characters Elvis played in ANY movie. Frigging post-modernism, you can never tell if anyone's being serious or ironic.
