PRINCE FANS UNITED: Discuss! - Part II

Since the 1st thread grew sooooo long.....



By now, you've certainly seen the recent developments plastered on the main page of the Org and other Prince fan sites. Whether you agree, disagree, or just don't know what to think about what's going on, here's your place to express thoughts, arguments, questions, and whatever else you may think is relevant to the situation.

Just one thing: KEEP IT CIVIL. no no no!

dawntreader said:[quote]i think Prince is right, i am sorry. as a fan, i am not personally offended by the actions.

i applaude him for the way he used the internet to get his music to us (sometimes for free), and i agree that he should have a say about any image of him published without permission.

i also think the abreveation PFU is poorly chosen as it basically says
Prince fuck U. that is not the way to get the discussion started.
[quote]




I agree with you Dawn treader as far as the abbreviation ! it's blatent fans if your that passionate about this just close your wallets! have him show up to an empty arena lol


words from pR


Prince : Where's everybody ? confused
Jill: well i'll be here cool< at the concert make no mistakes


lol

Don't those whom agree with Prince's actions see the irony in being able to express their viewpoint on this site?

Okay, so, on Part 1 of the thread I basically said I hated Prince.

I have collected my thoughts and feelings and would like to say that is not true.

The truth is I do not understand what his goal is and I think that will be revealed or made clear eventually.

I reacted with anger mostly because I do not want to have the social interaction and discussion aspect of the Org roster of friends and strangers lost in the process of Prince doing whatever it is he is trying to accomplish.

I still think he may be overstepping some boundaries and cleaning his shoes on OUR rights as far as legalities are concerned - fair use, free speech. Those are our rights! biggrin Remember that, y'all!

hmmm.....I really hoped a less confrontational approach
would work, but I trust this site, and extreme circumstances require an extreme response. Therefore, I'm behind the site's decision 100%.
If nothing else, I have loyalty to Prince.org.
As far as Prince's music, I've already purchased everything, so there's no bargaining chip. He has enough $$, so it doesn't matter to him.

On the other hand, there can be bad associations with artists, for example:

Karen Carpenter.....bulilmia, anorexia
Lead singer of INXS Michael Hutchance....weird ass asphyxiation in the bathroom while doing sexual stuff.
Michael Jackson.....ped.....

Prince.....he's currently filling in the blank.

I wish it weren't so.
sad

I still maintain, WS is a hired organization...don't shoot the messenger.

If You don't own the fans, the fans own you - Prince

Again, everybody sing along

My name is Prince
I am a prick
My name is Prince
With a little dick
I did not come to make no fans
Just buy my records and I'll take the cash
In the beginning, I needed thee
but in this decade, you're on your knees
Ya'll was tryin' to appreciate when you heard the sound
Sound like a letter cold gettin' down
I tried to take the high road but I might not last
My God I'm worried, ya'll kick my ass

My name is Prince
I am a prick
My name is Prince
With a little dick - hurt me

(Beat him, beat him, somebody)
(beat him, beat him, somebody)
Hurt me (beat him, beat him, somebody)
(Beat him, beat him, somebody)
(beat him, Beat him, somebody)
(beat him, beat him, somebody)
(beat him, beat him, somebody)
(BEAT HIM, BEAT HIM, somebody)

My name is Prince and I am on crack
When it comes to crack It is not wack
I think I'm righteous free from your sins
I had 2 wives but that had to end
Don't look me in the eye, cuz I just might lie
And tell you my shoes are not from hide
Without a pistol, without a gun
When u kick my ass you'll be havin' fun
That's when I gottcha that's when u mine
Now cease and desist before you die

My name is Prince I am a prick (You can't stop Prince)
My name is Prince with the little dick - hurt me (You can't stop Prince)

My name is Prince, and I wanna be king
Cuz Larry Graham's on top and it's just my dream
Pics with me and women and fancy clothes
Will make you smile, but it won't save your soul
I'm here to tell you that there's a better way
Would Jehovah be happy if He came 2 day?
I am sayin' I'm better, I'm better than u
If u want 2 play my music, u better learn the rules

Ouah! My name is Prince!

Such a very sad day ~ I can't even listen to his music right now. He will gain control, as many here have correctly assessed, but the Princedom will be quite a bit smaller with all of us gone.

The more I think bout it I say just drop him, remove all content let him have is way. It's obvious he DOESNT want us as fans anymore, so why should we WANT him. Let him move into his Xanadu and fondle snow globes for the rest of his lonely sad paranoid life.


The org will survive in one form or another, Id say just concentrate on a backup plan so if/when the boom is lowered everyone knows what new site to go to.

I guess we can all agree.... we love Prince.org more than we love Prince? biggrin




PS: sticky part 2's suck ass. since we're able to set the number of posts that are displayed per page, what's the point in starting a new sticky? if you really want to read what it's all about, you have to go through the first thread anyway, so why bother starting a second one? confuse
