100%, I'm in.

nutty

I'm already giggling over an academic take on Prince: "The psychosexual impact of "Do Me Baby" (long version) on the rock & roll slow jam milieu."

OK, I may or may not have totally made that up. lol I plan to be there for both Wednesday and Thursday evening sessions. I'd attend them all, but I'll be away that weekend.

Are you going? I think you're in NYC? Easy train up.

Would love to hear how it goes - and if anyone hears about streaming, post ASAP!

They've not answered any of my (half dozen?) e-mail or voice mail messages from my official university address since the beginning of December. Looking to find out if my students can access a stream, since we're studying Prince in class.

That's uncollegial of them, so do me the favor of eating far too much of their reception food if you're going. Or use up all the milk at the coffee station, or something.

Didn't Prince get his honorary doctorate degree from MN? He was aware of this and thought it was pretty cool from what I read.
