if cait found out in any way shape or form from anybody/thing other than elvis that is wrong. it takes balls to admit it outright than to let it be found out. that is just my opinion on this matter in general. it would not matter if the 'cheater' was famous or not. it has to do with respect. marriag...

i am appreciative for the time and depth of ec liner notes.
a paragraph from him on a website don't float my boat.

to me, it's like a gift.
he does it cause he wants to, irregardless of the 'motive'
and you accept it graciously. you don't demand a gift

I've always liked The Deportees Club , and I also like Deportee , the slower, calmer version. I think Elvis said somewhere that he thought Deportee is the way the song SHOULD have been on GCW... Are you the Juggernaught Poisoner? no. actually i have no idea what the juggernaught poisoner is or means

maybe the lyrics and music are not polished, probably why it was never really released. but i can see the words spitting from his mouth and the rending of flesh as he tears into this person.

it has to be 'poisoned letter' offa one of the brutal youth re-issue(?).
i've yet to hear any other song sung with such vitriol
also, it is part of the evolution of a song and just trying to see how it becomes 'finished' is interesting
