I Am Your Conscious, I Am Love - A paean 2 Prince by Hilton Als

I Am Your Conscious, I Am Love - A paean 2 Prince by Hilton Als

in the new December 2012 issue of Harper's magazine.

I haven't read it yet, but here's the link to download:

http://harpers.org/archive/2012/12/i-am-your-conscious-i-am-love/

Hilton Als writes for The New Yorker. He can be wildly ridiculous, but this might be interesting.

Lord...get the lyrics right. It's

I'm your conscience...I am love.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

But if it's a paean to Prince (as claimed), you'd have to think it was a quotation of the lyrics. I think he just got it wrong.

I have the issue right here. It is a long article. Either read it at the store or wait for the website to insert it, if they do.

"as well as production duties on a number of albums by other artists (Sheila E., Sheena Easton, Mavis Staples, Vanity, the Mary Jane Girls, the Time)..."

Mary Jane Girls???

It's an interesting read... more about Hilton Als's longing for love projected onto his longing for the Prince of "Black Queens"--the colored, queered, pre-pop Prince.

Ok, I finally read this and I feel:

1. This seems like a chapter out of Kcoolmuziq's diary

2. Imago wrote this in his parody style

3 Androgynine lives/ Jew Dreamfirstborn did this
