summers bowing out gracefully. so its time to whack out the snuggly autumn woolies. the thigh high boots. but maybe still keep the shades out.

tetchy presley interview…

Elvis Presley Interview 1956, 6 August, in Lakeland Florida. 
At the Polk Theatre, where Elvis did 3 shows.

Interviewed by Paul Wilder 

“If only you knew how disheartened and melancholy I really feel about myself as a productive being! All I long for is a little freedom, a taste of the real breath of life; and I kick, I revolt against the many, the unutterably many constraints to which my mind is still subject. And of real productive work there can be no thought so long as one is not freed, however slightly, from one’s trammels and the pain or oppression arising from one’s limited outlook. Shall I ever attain to inner freedom? It is very doubtful. The goal is too remote, and even if one gets within measurable distance of it, one has by that time consumed all one’s strength in a long search and struggle. When freedom is at last attained, one is as lifeless and feeble as a day-fly by night. That is what I dread so much. It is a misfortune to be so conscious of one’s struggle and so early in life! And unlike the artist or the ascetic, I cannot balance my doubts by means of great deeds. How wretched and loathsome it is to me to be continually wailing like a mire-drum. For the moment I am really very, very tired of everything—more than tired.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, from Selected Letters (via violentwavesofemotion)
