Purple Pain

Apparently there was a big re-release party for the movie Purple Rain at First Avenue this weekend. If you dressed up in gear from the era you could win prizes. I did not attend, but my friend Glaser decided it would fun to imagine I had, so he photoshopped it for me:

At least he's not very good with photoshop, but he could've picked a better shot of me. Anyway, Purple Rain is to be re-released on DVD tomorrow, and I don't want to have anything to do with it. It's a bad movie, even though it came out smack dab in the middle of my Prince phase.

Funny, except the Prince concert actually cost me $160 for tickets, $12 for parking, and money for enough beer to dull my senses enough to enjoy his 20-minute rendition of a Led Zepplin song.

Ha ha ha ha....Aron wants to know who prince is! Oh I can't stop laughing at this one.

You liked the prince concert Dan....Your just sore about that cheap slipcover CD case and new religiously enlightened morality based Prince.

You sure do like to defend Prince all the time, Stacy. I think someone is a secret Musicology lover.

As for telling your kid who Prince is, I wouldn't even know where to begin. You should probably start him on Sign O The Times and then wait to work your way back through the dirty stuff until he is WAAAAY older. Although I got my first Prince record when I was 9.

You may want to be careful about Sign o the Times.

There is a song "It" on the album.

But most of that album is pretty good.

Oooh, I forgot about It. Sign O The Times also has some more obscure sexual references, with lines like "her pants were wet, they came off, but she didn't see the movie cuz she hadn't read the book first," which I don't even understand so I doubt a little kid would. But still, you know that somehow he is just trying to be dirty. Which is why Prince used to be so cool.

Since Prince just isn't what he used to be, I suggest you just choose to not introduce him in any way to you kids. What set him up for heartbreak? He'll love the old stuff & continually be disappointed by the new.

And, Dan, that picture is one of the grossest I've ever seen. And I thought the knitted masks would give me nightmares...

Like this one better?

Mazltov oh Purple One, on this, your bar mitzvah day! Enjoy the Barnes and Noble gift card, young man.
Seriously, this picture was so worth the scroll down.
