You don't get a cookie when you're trying to do the right thing. It's 2013, and Prince's official online presence is amateurish beyond belief. But for you the bar is apparently so low, that you feel that he deserves praise for this.

Damn, dude. I was saying the SAME exact thing.

Just how far low has Prince fans set the bar where a lot of them now think that the very bland, unmoving, middle-of-the-road, I-can-do-this-in-a-coma-but-then-I'd-be-pushing-myself tracks he's been putting out are "funky"/[img:$uid]http://pic80.picturetrail.com:80/VOL2084/9118410/23995995/405566474.jpg[/img:$uid]??

I bought the video on impulse, as I was buying the new song. My god, what crap! And apparently I bought two of them?! I thought they were something different, but they are just different formats? I can't watch them to see if they're different.

How does Prince, one of the most stylish and visually interesting of all pop artists, have some of the worst videos of anyone?

It's a shame that you ended up with 2 versions but did you really not work out they "screwdriver live mov" and "screwdriver live mp4" were in fact the same thing in different formats?

But yep, the video ain't great, I only bought it for the live version of the song. But saying that, I've never been bothered by any of his videos, it's the music I always wanted, so for me to say the vid ain't great doesn't mean much. The biggest problem i have with this video is that the audio on it isn't up to scratch.
RIP sad

I dig the song and video.

I love this age of direct Prince music access without having to go to music shops where the owner couldn't give a shit about me except the money I bring in.

More power to Prince.

As for those complaining like *puss..s

Are you fans or looking 4 channels to vent your hate?

I agree, I don't really care about videos, that is why I think it's funny that I bought a terrible one twice!

Oh, BTW:

The video is different now.

It's smaller in size.

And the site's security is BAD.

I mean: I just saved $0.77 to test this.

Fan since '82. 40 yrs old. Cry at concerts... From "1999" in Virginia to the last ones in California. Can watch While my guitar gently weeps weekly.

Not feeling screwdriver. Neat concept. The music sounds kinda country to me. Not what I like to hear from this vocal lyric and guitar genius.

It's like that one song on planet earth.

Sigh. In other news ... Montreaux. Yes! You'll get my $ for that.

My $.02

If you could ask every single person who purchases Prince's next physical cd release how easy it is to get a flac file quickly to cd, at least half or more wouldn't know flac from MS-DOS. Maybe 10% would even have used FLAC once. If FLAC was this format dummies could use with their eyes closed, why would anybody even consider bothering with an MP3? Why would physical cds even be sold? Other than some geeks here, the average Prince dummy wants to go to a Wreck A Stow.

And since the topic is DVD, Blu Ray mastered properly sounds way better than any download. And yes, I have heard decent sounding DVD from downloads.

Yeah what he said!

Flac's are a ballache, i've got a load of crap I downloaded on FLac because i didnt realise it was in that format and i've never listened to most of it because I can only play it on VMplayer.

I once asked about a year ago on here how to get Flacs into mp3 and/or onto a cd and I was arrogantly told to use google. I hate that, if you know the answer just bloody say so, anyway I googled it and nothing of any use came up.

So Flac can fukin do one!

Google foobar, if you must convert FLAC to mp3, i do it only to save space. I'm happy with 320 mp3's. Heresay to others i know.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Let's put it this way:

If one lets the end user control whatever goes to the payment processor and one does not check the return values of the payment processor then the end user can do stuff.

The shorter video is lacking the intro. The ending is still the same, so that looks out of place.

The sound is the same, bitrate is the same.

I emailed the folks at prince2013.org about this.

So far no one appears to reply or acknowledge they understand that due to this problem with each purchase mr Prince could lose up to $1.76 per time the item is purchased from prince2013.com.

Even at the org no one reads the org to make this sticky and/or acknowledge I handled this ethically correct in some way.

What I wanna know is this:

Could our account info be hacked? If so, they definitely need to beef up security...

Udo, they should give you some free tracks for pointing this out to them. wink

We were HERE, where were you?

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

At prince2013.org the real work is done at paypal.com.

After paying there, the site gets back your emaill adress and also presents you with a download link.

So no real info about you is on prince2013.com (maybe IP and date/time etc but nothing special).

Udo, they should give you some free tracks for pointing this out to them. wink

Thanks, but first someone needs to respond.

Of course the godaddy.com domainsby proxy registration hiding does not really help here.

So that is baaaad for security.

Or should I try to find a phone number for 7801 Audubon road?

Most Paisley Park Enterprises numbers listed on the interwebz are disconnected and/or no longer in use.

Or 'no longer representing him'.

So who does have info to contact mr Prince's business concerning matters regarding his websites?

I've only just got around to purchasing/downloading this vid.

Did the purchase version ever have the Donna intro and all the band boys vs girls thing like the initial live streaming version?

Ta!

I'm a little unclear what you meanb when you say "the initial live streaming version." However, for the first few days (maybe up to a week?) the video for purchase had the intro with the boys vs. girls scenario, and at some point about a week later, that version was taken down and replaced with the shorter "performance only" version. Not sure why.

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

Sex is not love. Love is not sex. Putting words in other people's mouths will only get you elected.

Thanks blue angel, that's exactly what I meant. I didn't realise I'd left it so long before purchase.

I watched the longer version, I think via 3rdeyegirl YouTube account (that's what I meant by streaming version).
