Seattle Celebrity News!

Editor’s Note:  Due to WordPress programming problems I’m a little backed up on the events.  Coming up is the Comedy Workshop, A/V The Movie Premiere and the Elvis Invitational at the Motor, with actual recorded interviews of the ‘Elvi’ (re-incarnated and re-constituted).  And you will be able to vote for your favorite!  (Plus interviews of your garden variety Elvi on the street for baseline measurement.)   We’ve got some great ones! in the can.

Here’s what happend this past Thursday:

Wilfred Padua did a bit about how hard it can be to change a pre-conceived opinion:
