RIP Prince

They've been dropping like flies and I've been wrapped up in too much to note each one, but in this case...ATTENTION MUST BE PAID!

I remember going to see Purple Rain by myself on opening night...I was really annoyed by the misogyny, but BLOWN AWAY by the music and the power of Prince's personality. Epic, absolutely epic. Goodnight, Sweet Prince!

Prince, master of rock, soul, pop and funk, dies at 57

I remember Purple Rain. At the time it seemed that Prince was a passive actor who caught fire on stage. Also the fight between his parents was awful. And being amused at Vanity's costumes. Yeah, every woman walks around town in corset and a cape!

I'm sad, but not as devastated as I was by David Bowie's death. Patton Oswald's wife died in her sleep at 46 the other day, leaving him and their daughter Alice, 7.

STOP DYING, PEOPLE!

Oh my gosh, that's so awful about Patton Oswald's wife. Also scary that she was my age.

The scene where the girl (I think was Apollonia, rather than Vanity) takes off her clothes and jumps into the wrong lake was the one that really bugged me, plus the domestic violence being played for laughs were the two that drove me bonkers.

Such an unexpected shock. Turned on the news, caught the end of the story, wasn't even sure he was dead for around ten minutes after until the computer cooperated. I remember dancing to 1999 before it was the year 1999 at school discos and (non school) slumber parties, though I wasn't very into him beyond that, but he was like... always around.
