Historic estate and former home of Elvis Presley in Memphis, Tennessee
Sofia Coppola's Priscilla came out in the US recently and will be out in the UK in January. The film, which follows Elvis Presley's wife Priscilla through their relationship, is visually stunning, and today, Lilah speaks with its celebrated lead production designer, Tamara Deverell. To recreate Elvis's homes, including the infamous Graceland, Tamara had to imagine it all from Priscilla's perspective. Tamara tells Lilah about her creative process and why she sees Priscilla as the story of many women in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, as told through hair and makeup.-------We love hearing from you.

Gurdip is out unexpectedly so special guest Darin Evans joins Justin once again, this time for a loose, lighthearted (and unexpectedly beefy) ranking of all of the Elvis movie title songs, from Love Me Tender to Change of Habit; weighing the songs themselves, how they're used in their respective movies, and how well they represent the films they're from. The team also react to listener feedback regarding the recent Elvis and Country Music miniseries as well as recent news including the Christmas at Graceland lineup (airing November 29!!) and Dolly Parton's new Elvis-themed duet with Ronnie McDowell, and Darin gives his thoughts after having seen "Priscilla" - FYI, Justin has also finally seen "Priscilla" and his initial impressions bonus episode with John Michael Heath of EAP Society is up over at the TCBCast Patreon. For Song of the Week, due to Darin jumping in at the last minute since Gurdip had an unexpected emergency at the day job, Justin's the only one with a song of the week, but brings the funky "Find Out What's Happening" from Elvis' 1973 Stax sessions.

The relationship between Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker is one of the most successful ones in music. A new book by one of the Colonel's protegees puts a new spin on the relationship and legends of this fascinating relationship. We talked with co-author Marshall Terrill. The book is available November 28th.
This week, we're looking behind the gates of Graceland and there's plenty of moodboard content to go around with the latest A24 release, Priscilla. It's clear that Sofia Coppola stans are in the building as Carmela and Josh get into the stellar casting, the dreamy, ethereal quality that Sofia brings to the screen, and the journey of a girl coming into adulthood in the shadow of a superstar. Comparisons to Baz Luhrmann's Elvis were inevitable and fan reactions seemed to be mixed in light of The King's portrayal, but we want to know what you think! Is the film going to impact his legacy? --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/watch-with-sound/support
It's Short Time Shots, a quick look at the day's wrestling scores and more. I am on the struggle bus realizing that my dad jokes and bad jokes might only be funny to … one of you. Anyway, I'm Jason Bryant and here's what you are catching up on for November 16. A wild crowd saw Division II Montevallo pick up the first home win in program history, a 27-16 triumph over NAIA Midway. Do yourself a favor, go to MontevalloW on Twitter and check out how boisterous the home crowd is. And remember folks, this is a first-year Division II program in ALABAMA. Montevallo is the first Division II program in Alabama since Jacksonville State, yes, it's in Alabama, dropped the sport as a Division II school in 1981. The only other option would be Troy, then known as Troy State, which fielded a program in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Mount Olive upended King 23-17 but we saw something we typically don't see in college wrestling and that's someone bump UP to get the ranked matchup rather than bump away. With Mount Olive holding a 14-9 lead after 165, King bumped up seventh-ranked Trent Mahoney to take on Mount Olive's seventh-ranked 174-pounder Calan Straub. Tied 5-5 after 1, Mahoney went up 8-5 in the second, but in the third, Straub earned the fall 43 seconds into the period in what turned out to be a crucial win for the Trojans. Heavyweight Jayln McClammy iced the dual with an 8-3 win at heavyweight for Mount Olive. Props for the move, it made for an exciting dual. 14th-ranked Pitt-Johnstown shutout East Stroudsburg 47-0 in PSAC competition. Ranked wins registered for the Mountain Cats by seventh-ranked Trevon Gray at 125 pounds, Jacob Ealy at 149 pounds, Dakoda Rogers at 197 and Isaiah Vance at 285 pounds. This also makes me feel quite old, because I covered Trevon Gray's father Teante in high school. He actually wrestled the best man in my wedding multiple times. Coach Pat Pecora picked up career coaching win nine billion. Belmont Abbey shutout undermanned Bluefield State 56-0. Too many forfeits here. The Green Mountain Championship went the way of Vermont State University-Castleton, which beat Norwich 50-6. No, this is NOT a new school. The school formerly known as Castleon University merged with Vermont Technical College and Northern Vermont University to create Vermont State University. So with the unification, the name we are supposed to refer to the old Castleton Spartans is now Vermont State University-Castleton. Not Vermont State-Castleton. Vermont State University-Castleton. Also, in case you were wondering, Vermont is the Green Mountain State. Wayne Campbell celebrates as Aurora, which you should know is in Illinios, beat Milwaukee School of Engineering, also known as MSOE, 32-20. Angel Jaimes' fall at 197 pounds sealed it for the host Spartans. No word if they have that Spartan Spirit as I cram TWO SNL references into one scoreline. Another traveling trophy was on the line as UW-Eau Claire spanked UW-Oshkosh … b'gosh … 49-6 to retain the Chancellor's Cup. Southern Virginia over Patrick & Henry 48-7. Those three old grouches in Buena Vista left happy. In the Keystone State, Delaware Valley beat York, the one in Pennsylvania 32-7. Top win for the Aggies was at 157 pounds where Nick DeLorezno knocked off 14th-ranked Jared Blair of York 6-3. The women's teams also squared off, with Delaware Valley winning there as well 36-8. In an all-Arkansas battle, Vinny Barber's University of the Ozarks Eagles topped Division II Ouachita Baptist 25-17 on the road in Arkadelphia on Wednesday. Props here goes to the squads for wrestling five extra bouts as well. In the NAIA, Grand View extended its win streak against NAIA competition to 157 in a row with a pair of shutout wins against Avila and Central Methodist in a tri-meet hosted at CMU. The Vikings beat Avila 56-0 and Central Methodist 50-0. The last time Grand View lost to an NAIA opponent came on January 16, 2011 against Lindenwood, which was then an NAIA squad. St. Ambrose handing out yet another heartbreaker as the Bees won for the second night in a row, this time topping William Penn 20-18. The night prior, they edged Graceland by a point. This time, it was three straight wins from 184-197 that lifted the Bees to the victory, with a key fall coming by Jayden Terronez at 174. Oklahoma Wesleyan picked up its first win of the season, topping Bethany, the one in Kansas, 41-12 in KCAC action. Rochester, (Mich.) beat Lourdes 24-18. Missouri Valley beat Benedictine (Kan.) 45-6. NJCAA Cowley beat Division II Newman 33-17 in Kansas. Also in Junior College action, Carl Albert State and Labette both beat Barton.

Bad college football, like that place in Ypsilanti with the ashtray for a football field. It's Short Time Shots. I'm Jason Bryant.Wilmington's program hasn't been back that long, but the Quakers picked up a competitive 27-26 criteria win over Muskingum in what was decided by the FOURTH criteria. Can you name the fourth criteria without looking it up? Most can't, so don't be down on yourself. It's most near fall points. The teams were tied in wins at five, tied in six-point victories with three each and tied with match points at 33 apiece. So it was Wilmington's 10 nearfall points to Muskingum's seven that was the difference.But when I wrote that first line, it got me digging. Coach Chris Basford is in his second year there and he started last season inheriting a roster of four guys. He ended with six. He's got 20 now and trying to create some type of positive culture there.“This was a total team effort. It was a great win for our young program... the first in 6 years. It was priceless to see the faces of the guys getting their first college win to go along with a team win. They did a great job battling and picking each other up,” said Basford. So when was Wilmington's last official dual win? Best I can find using the internet and all its archives - January 5, 2010 … which was a 25-22 win over Baldwin Wallace, which, was NOT good then.Speaking of Baldwin Wallace, they blanked Heidelberg 51-0 and what was dubbed MUSTACHE MANIA! I don't know what Mustache Mania was, but it didn't really matter what it was for Baldwin Wallace as they had four techs and three falls among their bonus victories. The fastest fall came at 197 pounds from Carter Lloyd, who got the match-ender at 1:50. In case you're wondering, Coach Gibbs' Baldwin Wallace team came into the season ranked third.Zac Stray's major decision at heavyweight completed a large comeback by Otterbein as the Cardinals upended Mount Union 20-18. Otterbein was down 15-3 after four bouts and 15-6 halfway through the dual. North Central beat Carthage 44-3.Saint Vincent's return to competition after 50 years away from the sport came up short as Penn State-Behrend bested the Bearcats 26-17 in Latrobe. The first win in the program's revived history came from 133-pounder Ryan Klingensmith out of Kiski Prep. Behrend's Matthew Caldwell's tech fall at 197 sealed it for the Lions - yes, pretty much all of the Penn State branch campuses are Lions or Nittany Lions or Roaring Lions or Tea Sipping Lions or something. In Division II, Coker edged Emmanuel 21-20 in a Conference Carolinas dual, with Coker heavyweight Hamilton Cooper getting an 8-0 major decision at 285 pounds to give Coker the win. But the win actually didn't come on the extra bonus point. Emmanuel was docked a team point for unsportsmanlike conduct, so instead of the major sending the match to criteria, Coker won outright. And here's the gut-punching kicker - Emmanuel would have won on the third criteria, most match points, 48-47. Uffda.Also in the conference, Newberry beat Emory & Henry 51-6. The Wolves picked up five falls in the victory over the Wasps, who are transitioning from Division III to Division II.McKendree beat Kentucky Wesleyan 42-12. Quincy beat NAIA Missouri Baptist 32-20.In the NAIA, St. Ambrose heavyweight Jeremiah Morris picked up a 6-3 win over Sam Fleming lifted the Bees past host Graceland 18-17. On the women's side, North Central's women also beat Carthage, coming away with a 38-3 win in CCIW action. Fastest fall of the night came at 130 pounds where two-time All-American Amani Jones got the touche in 41 seconds. The Cardinals are 8-0 already to start the season. Missouri Baptist's women beat Quincy 30-14.A metric crap ton of news, much more than this, can be delivered to your inbox daily.

It's time for Short Time Shots, a quick look at the day in college wrestling. The only Division I dual of the night saw the Roger Kish era begin in his home state as the Oklahoma Sooners topped Central Michigan 29-11 in Mount Pleasant. Kish, a four-time state champion from Lapeer West saw a wave of transfers impact the victory, including All-American Stephen Buchanan at 197 pounds. Other new faces to earn wins were Jace Koelzer at 133 pounds, Cael Carlson at 165 pounds and Giuseppe Hoose at 184. The Chippewas did get solid victories from Corbyn Munson at 149, Johnny Lovett at 157 and one of the last of the Monarch Gang, Alex Cramer at 174. In Division II, top-ranked Lander shutout Limestone 48-0 in Greenwood, South Carolina on Thursday. In case you hadn't been paying attention, R.C. LaHaye has assembled a pretty formidable squad with the Lander Bearcats. All-Americans James Joplin, David Hunsberger and Juan Edmond-Holmes. Second-ranked West Liberty was also in action. The Hilltoppers got a scare from Mercyhurst as falls by top-ranked Ty McGeary at 184 and fourth-ranked Francesco Borsellino at 285 pushed West Liberty past the Lakers 24-20 in Erie. The top individual matchup went Mercyhurst's way as sixth-ranked Dillon Walker majored third-ranked and returning All-American Alec Cook 15-3 at 165. Out on the western slope, No. 22 Western Colorado used the third criteria, most match points, to edge No. 18 Nebraska-Kearney 21-20. The Mountaineers were led by returning All-Americans Patrick Allis at 133 pounds and Cole Hernandez at 174. Allis teched Hector Serratos, while Hernandez topped Jacobi Deal 12-6. The Lopers wrestled without all five of their preseason ranked wrestlers and reported the dual on their own website as their B team competing. Welp, it was still on the schedule … Northern State, which is in SOUTH Dakota topped Fort Hays State 35-6. Colorado School of Mines meat-wadded Otero Junior College 56-0. No, that's not a dig on Otero, just a nod to Mines' coach Austin DeVoe. In Division III, Fifth-ranked UW-La Crosse blanked UW-Oshkosh 59-0. The math says six falls, three forfeits and a technical fall. That's former Fargo champ Ben Kawczynski with the tech at 197, by the way. Cornell College dominated NAIA St. Ambrose 45-5. Elmhurst and Coach Steve Marianetti beat Augustana, the one in Illinois, 26-22. The Blue Jays got a win at heavyweight to pull that one out. Tenth-ranked Wabash topped Albion 25-10. All-American Charles Baczek earned a 3-0 victory over Owen McDaniel at 184 pounds. It's the Little Giants first dual win under new head coach Jake Fredericksen, who assumed the role after longtime coach Brian Anderson left for a gig at Indiana University. No. 12 Stevens Institute made the trip to Wisconsin and took down 8th-ranked UW-Eau Claire 19-16 down in La Crosse. This one hand a handful of ranked matchups, highlighted by a pair of All-Americans meeting at 174 pounds. Second-ranked Jared Stricker topped fourth-ranked Stefan Major 10-7 at 174 pounds. At 133, Eau Claire's top-ranked Tyler Fleetwood shutout 12th-ranked Luke Hoerle 5-0 and at 165, 15th-ranked Harrison Hinojosa of Stevens knocked off seventh-ranked Travis Massie 4-1 in sudden victory. In the CCIW, Carthage topped Concordia, the one in Wisconsin, 25-20. In case you're wondering, Carthage is also in Wisconsin. Kenosha to be exact. Seventh-ranked North Central beat Wheaton 47-6 for the program's 40th conference win in a row. In the NAIA, Southeastern, in Florida, picked up a 32-10 victory over the Bobcats of St. Thomas, which is also in Florida. You might remember the logo from that dude's shirt who won Big Brother. You know, the guy who paraded around the house banging pans. Yeah, that guy sucked. As far as people who don't suck, All-Americans Andreus Bond Gabe Jacobs were among the notable winners for the FIRE! FIRE! Speaking of things that are red, the Red Raiders of Northwestern College, the one in Iowa, beat the Beavers of Buena Vista 32-12. Rik Dahl, we say it almost every mention, they're the RED Raiders from Orange City, Iowa. This dual featured FIVE technical falls. I think the kids are liking the new takedown and nearfall rules. Lourdes beat Siena Heights 45-6. Graceland beat St. Mary 25-23. Southeast Community College, which is in Nebraska, beat Northeastern Junior College, which is in Colorado, 39-9 in junior college action. Not too much happening on the women's mats, but Alma College in Michigan hosted its first event as a new women's wrestling program. It didn't go the Scots way as they dropped matches to Northern Michigan 38-5 and Trine 29-20. Northern Michigan beat Trine 34-10. McKendree, ranked third among NCAA women's teams, topped Missouri Baptist, the 10th-ranked NAIA squad, 34-14. McKendree's Shelby Moore topped NAIA All-American Juliana Diaz 8-3 at 123 pounds. Emory & Henry beat Southern Virginia 31-19 and Bluefield State 38-11.
"Can you give yourself a nickname. Michael Jackson wrote a letter to Mtv this week in 1991 that asked them to call him The King of Pop. Some did many laughed. That said this week is a long list of musician nicknames and where they came from. "
