So, there’s cool new show on the Sundance Channel. You’ve probably heard of it. It’s called . . .


You can see clips of the show here, but I’m not smart enough to figure out how to embed them into my site. But I’ve seen the show myself, and it’s a lot of fun. This season, Elvis will be speaking and performing with the likes of Elton John, Lou Reed, The Police, Jenny Lewis, Rufus Wainwright, and many more. The next episode premiers tonight.

To celebrate the program, they want to give some swag! Here’s a pic:

As you can see, it comes with a nice little notebook, a rad totebag, a great thermos, and two little paper speakers. Not to mention a great, long-sleeve shirt.

How to win:

This is a great prize, so what I want to hear from you is your favorite Elvis Costello lyric. I’ll pick my favorite entry, and that’ll be the winner. Just tell me what it is in a comment, along with your e-mail address (YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS).

If you don’t want your e-mail in a comment, then send me an e-mail with your entry and “elvis contest” in the subject line.

I’ll pick a winner on 1/26/09, so don’t bother entering after that point. I’ll also be sending an e-mail asking for your address on that date, so check your e-mail on 1/26. If you don’t respond to my e-mail within 12 hours, you’ll be disqualified and I’ll go on to the next person.

Good luck!


There were many great entries, both here and in my e-mail, but there can be only one winner.  I went with something elegant but crude:

..she says, “Are you looking up my skirt?”
When you say “No”
She says “Why not?”

I would have gone with what is also my own favorite:

I said, “I’m so happy I could die.”
She said, “Drop dead,” and left with another guy.

But the entry did not contain an e-mail address, and the instructions were specific.  But thanks to all of you, and hopefully I’ll have something else cool to give away soon.
