LINDSAY WAGNER AND THE RETURN OF THE ELVIS LAMP! If there was EVER a question of whether it was cool to own an Elvis Lamp or not, this should put to rest all doubt. In this 1986 episode of KATE AND ALLIE, guest star Lindsay Wagner (one of my childhood celebrity crushes no less) revealed that she had her very own Elvis lamp in her old room at her parents' house. Grok the sequence. I particularly like the double take when she notices the ole Elvis there! Now. . .if she starts sportin' a bun and a tractor. . .THEN I'm gonna get worried!

For goodness sake! Was it ever in doubt that it was cool to own an Elvis Lamp ? I don't bit I would if I could. I'd put it up there with my windup Postman Pat, my Garfield cookie jar, my rock from Monument Valley, my pic of H.P. Lovecraft in the tentacled picture frame, my autographed picture of Joan Sutherland and my roaring Godzilla doll.

Oh come on, it's cool but not as cool as the Lovecraft tentacle frame!

those Elvis lamps are soooo 2000 and late sweetheart, your's truly owned two of them way back in the 80's when love was still free and sex was safe for goodness sake!!

Ummm... why did i all of a sudden start sounding like magnolia thunderpussy?

You must not have been listening, Thundercheeks, but those Elvis lamps Lindsay Wagner had WERE back in the 80's -- I said the episode was from 1986 so actually Lindsay Wagner's Elvis lamps were concurrent to yours.

And I just said "concurrent"! What the hell's going on here?!?
