Reprisal

Wincing as Xander sang along with the film, Andrew realised that he must have missed the gene that turned men into Elvis fans at some point in their lives.

At least Dawn could distract Spike by playing the Dead Kennedys version of "Viva Las Vegas". Andrew had tried that and been subjected to a two hour lecture on the sanctity of Elvis Presley. Ten minutes in and he'd started imagining ever more creative ways of killing his flatmate.

The only thing keeping him sane was the joy of inflicting a Doris Day movie festival on Xander in retaliation next weekend.

Young Elvis was better, back before he lost his sense of fun.
But sanctity? I don't think so.

I've never understood the appeal of Elvis movies. The first film he made was great, but the rest were just pap churned out like today's dodgy teen flicks that last a week at the cinema and go straight to the DVD bargain bin. Yet, weirdly enough, they still seem to have a devoted following.

It's largely star appeal, of course, but it's also the fact that they *knew* the films were just pap. Elvis himself said he made the movies because they were fun, and when they ceased to be fun he'd stop making them. It reminds me of an old film called "The Cannonball Run", one of my favorite movies -- pure silliness, but the actors were having such a great time that it was great to watch them.

I guess it's all relative. I'd be with Andrew on the Doris Day filmfest over Xander's choice.

Xander may not enjoy it, bu I'm sure we can shove him onto the floor and enjoy the Doris Day / Rock Hudson movies with Andrew. Xander can bring us chocolate and alcohol if he complains.

How will he be able to fetch and carry if you do that to him? Hang on, I'm now torn between servant Xander and furniture Xander. Oh, the possibilities.
