This weekend I did not see Purple Rain at the movie theater. I had tickets for Saturday night but a gardening project ran long and I decided not to go. I could have gone yesterday but I didn’t. I don’t think I’m going to see it. I don’t want the movie to be associated with Prince’s death. Is that weird? So be it. I love his music. I grew up with it. I listened to Purple Rain on my Walkman over and over again. So great! He will be missed.
I had a good weekend! Gardening, sushi, walking Iggy, relaxing and listening to the new album by Nada Surf. Good stuff!
Have a great day!
This Saturday night Cara and I are going to the movies. What are we going to see?
Purple F@#kin’ Rain, baby! AMC is giving it a limited run. I’ve seen it countless times on DVD and on TV but I never saw it in the theater. I’m looking forward to it!
Change of plans. We did some gardening instead. We might go on Sunday. I WILL keep you posted.
I’m gonna miss Prince. I was listening to his music yesterday. It’s all so good. I like hearing it on the radio too. You don’t hear his music too often. At least not on the stations I listen to.
He found God years ago so I’m sure he wouldn’t want us to be so concerned. It was just so shocking and now, if the drug rumors are true, sad. Who knows what kind of pain he lived with. Someday I hope they turn Paisley Park into a museum. It’d be so interesting to see his studio. I re-listened to ‘Around The World In A Day’. Good stuff. So sad.
July 19, 2004:
It’s Sunday night, I just got back from the Prince show and it was GREAT! His band was so tight, it goes beyond words. THE TIME opened up! Morris Day was on his game. It was quite the surprise. There were also a few celebrity sightings. First, Walter, “Sally” and I saw Q-Tip. Then we saw:
Rev. Al Sharpton
How funny’s that? Rev. Al is a Prince fan. My photo’s a little out of focus but that’s really him.
I have to get to bed, so I’ll save my diary until Tuesday. On second thought, I just did the usual things up until the concert;
A & P, laundry and cleaned the apartment. So, until tomorrow, I leave you with:
Damn, he’s good. This last photo is everyone exiting the concert, everyone at the same time:
Not crowded enough
That’s it! Have a great Monday.
Thanks for the music, Prince!
