An absolute gem this time. I was in town the other day and walked into a restaurant to hear this being fed out of the speakers. It instantly reminded me of a very drunken night when my friends and I came home from a night on the rip and stuck in one of Elvis’s greatest hits compilations, where we proceeded to dance our little cotton socks off around the kitchen.

One of my all time favourite songs.

the king – burning love

Song trivia (courtesy of wikipedia) –

  • The song was Elvis’s 40th and last Top Ten hit on the US charts.
  • The song was also released on an album titled Burning Love and hits from his movies volume 2 on November 1, 1972.

Interesting little tid-bit of info here in that the iPhone is now the most popular camera used for uploading photos to Flickr, the image sharing site. It takes over the crown from the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.

I suspect the phenomenal success of the iPhone 3GS might have something to do with this.

This coming friday I will be attending “Avatar Day” at cineworld dublin.
What’s Avatar Day?… I hear you say.
Well it’s the same 15-mins footage that James Cameron showed off at Comic-Con ’09 of his latest movie “Avatar”. A chance to see Pandora in all it’s 3D glory a whole four months before it’s released.

Hopefully it will live up to the initial impressions after the Comic-Con footage was shown, and I will, of course report back with my impressions.

Here’s the jump for some more info on Avatar….

My proudest moment of the week came this past tuesday, when foxy handed me a present from the lad’s travels in America. They said it represented me best. Watch out ladies!

I think they might have been taking the piss…
