Let's rock! Everybody, let's rock! We're celebrating Elvis Week, and to honor the King of Rock 'N Roll, we take a step back - way back to 1957 - with the movie "Jailhouse Rock."
Who doesn’t know Elvis Presley? Grunting, sighing and shaking his hips as he crooned into the microphone, The King had the girls swooning and the boys idolizing his swagger. His striking good looks, high baritone vocal range, and famous knee wobble easily made him an All-American cultural icon.
Besides making hit records, Elvis Presley also dabbled in film, one of which is Jailhouse Rock – a musical film directed by Richard Thorpe. He plays an ex-convict who made it big in the music business. As mentioned in the trailer – “Here’s an Elvis Presley you’ve never seen before!”

My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
We celebrated the launch of the Lomo'instant Wide camera in the Lomography Soho store with live music from Locks, a bottomless pit of mulled wine and enough tasty doughnuts to sink a battleship! We even managed to take some snaps of the night, including some rather adorable pictures of a tiny kitten.
