    I normally think that #brands trying to commercialize mourning is gross

    But goddamn if it ain't appropriate for a site about fuckin' to give the man a nod

    Maybe this is a hyper specific and weird observation, but I think The Time in Purple Rain looks a lot like Kennedy Davenport's Little Richard

    Yeah most commercial "tributes" to recently deceased artists are exploitative bullshit

    Oh you're doing a big Prince thing on your storefront or broadcast or what have you because he meant so much to you huh

    yeah any of that spike in Prince profits you'll be getting going to charities he supported or causes he believed in?

    No?

    Oh well I suppose it's understandable you're probably so distraught right now that you completely forgot to stop being a cynical greedy fuck for even one sweet minute

    Just to be clear I'm not talking about stuff like the Porn Hub example. They're not really profiting off that, no one is throwing more dollars at them because they did a nice thing with their logo.

    What are your thoughts about the Google Doodle? They threw that together really quickly..

    Edit: And for me it's already replaced by Earth Day.

    Paul Westerberg of The Replacements, another Minnesota legend, talks about Prince

    I've been reminded of this passage in the wonderful recent book about the entire career of The Replacements, Trouble Boys

    My rule for commercial tributes is that, if it isn't motivated by genuine sadness, it should at least be impossible to tell.

    I went to their page to see it and they got ad money from me, however slight

    And I never normally go to Pornhub so

    So what I got out of this is that somewhere, in some vault guarded by the Jehovah's Witness's version of the Free Masons, is unheard of Prince music that will slowly get released over the course of the next few years. As long as some brave adventurers are willing to dive deep and solve puzzles and deadly traps based on God, Music, and Love.

    I'll get my satchel and whip.

    I'll bring the purple strobe

    Am sat here, so drunk, at the townie bar, with Little Red Corvette playing on the jukebox. Would love to get freaky tonight but Prince will have to take a raincheck.

    Prince knows I ain't fuckin tonight. I nodded my head with some music, though.

    I did the super cliche thing and bought the Greatest Hits last night, because his music isn't on anything streaming (that anyone uses), and that was I have my bases covered.

    I put it on during my commute and once the classics all got through I was listening to those songs that make a Greatest Hits album cool - the non-singles that have a cult following or are super unique.

    Jesus "Gett Off" is just sex in auditory form.

    Listening to it with headphones as I walked through the office sure was something.

    I'm not gonna pretend that I'm super familiar with more than a handful of Prince songs

    But "When Doves Cry" is a song that I listen to pretty much every time it plays on the radio, which is thankfully pretty often.

    you guys

    I think Little Red Corvette may be the perfect song.

    One of my more listened to Prince tracks was U got the Look that he did with Sheena Easton.

    Was never a big fan of his music, but I was always a fan of the stories about his shenangians via Charlie Murphy and Kevin Smith.

    Yeah, he wasn't my thing, but he was talented and quite the hard worker. In other news, top story for local paper's site, "Bieber enrages Prince fans with comments."
