This thread is hilarious. There are so many things I can countersign from REAL life (dividing the CD collection, connecting situations and stages in your life with Prince songs, tours, outfits ...).

Here are my 2 cents.

You know you're a Prince fan if ...

... you have several files in which you've collected every snippet about Prince from magazines since 1986.

... you've bought too many CDs / LPs of people you're not really interested in just because there's only 1 Prince penned song on it.

... absolutely NOTHING matters anymore if a new Prince tour is announced ("just gimme that ONA tickets for 100 EUR each")

... you had 6 (!) ONA tickets for 2 people for 1 show because you were on holidays and had instructed several different people before your departure to get Prince tickets for you in case a tour would hit the town.

... after several years of torturing your mother with Prince music she actually started missing it after you had moved out.

... you're simply lacking space at home to store your several hundreds official / unofficial CDs, LPs, videos, DVDs, VCDs, files, merchandising.

... you've often taken in consideration to hire a secretary to handle all your tape / VHS / CD / DVD trades throughout the world.

... you can name lots of concert halls /clubs throughout the world ("Milan ? Palatrussardi !") because you have a recording of a Prince show

... you have an idea what your girlfriend / family / friends often think of you and your Prince obsession but you don't give a sh** because you're C O O L (what's that spelled).

Make that my ex-girlfriend - she hated Prince with a passion for 4 years when we were together - now she calls me up to ask for any rarities I might have.

Obviously, it's "Rockhard in a Funky Place", if you count the "Black Album" as a 1988 release (and not 1994).

...you call yourself his "friend," not his fan.

...you have plans to write a screenplay so Prince can finally act in a
movie with a plot.

...your response to your friends is, "Well, Cassius Clay changed his
name, too!What now?!"

...you keep songs with Prince samples in your collection


...you thought Graffiti Bridge should have been a commercial success as
a movie and a soundtrack.


...you know the names of the two women with Vanity in the group Vanity
6. (thats an easy one.)

...you thought We Are the World would have been better with a guitar
solo from Prince and if that couldn't happen then forget the whole thing!

...you've actually taken captain cruch and edensoy to a checkout line.


...The phrase "And that says what..." has worked its' way into your normal vocabulary.

I have the most horrible rapper ever-- off of No Limit-- sampled Nasty Girl-- very badly-- but i still danced to it, may god forgive me. Its also on my PC.

I thought about the soy milk when i was in the dairy section-- but decided to stay a calf for the time being.

If

...u've ever been mad at people for shunning ATWIAD.


...If ur friends (non-prince affiliated) have seen Graffiti B.

...If u play 10 cds in a 5 minute time span-- scanning through to listen to your favorite part...ESPECIALLY ON ATWIAD right b4 th synths come in when he says; "I think i wanna dance!"

...If u've actually thought u heard ? of U in your head while u were whip ,

... U listened to Insatiable, Adore, Scandalous, Do Me Baby, International Lover (in any particular order) on the way to make a booty call.

... u ever zoomed in to see if Prince's hand really did go under the panties on Appolonia in PR...

...U know who the blonde chick with Lisa is in the "1999" video. Some friends once asked me 2 settle a bet 4 them 2 this effect. One was convinced it was Wendy, the convinced it was Apollonia. I told them they were both wrong. One of them said "Is it Sheila E?" and I said "I won't even dignify that..."

There's some controversy on the subject. Supposedly it's the part where their chasing some guy, he gets out of the car and starts running in the snow. They shoot him and he falls (very UTCM). It totally seems like him because of the way he dies. They even credit him at the end of the movie with the symbol. I mentioned it on another thread and someone said that filmmakers were just joking. So I don't know what the truth is. I want to buy the new Fargo Disc set anyways. Maybe I'll find out then.

When you write poems about Prince or day dream about different senarios of meeting him and how it would be when you're bored or just because. (self confession) mushy lol

Your co-workers chip in and hire a Prince impersonator to go to your job and sign Happy Birthday to you.

You win a contest from a radio station to fly out to Hollywood to sit in the dog pound of the Arsineo Hall Show (Sept 9 1991) the night Patti LaBelle his Arsineo's co-host and Prince is THE guest. After Prince finishes sing Daddy Pop he slides on the floor right where you are standing and you try to pull the yellow do rag off his head, but he pushes you away.

These thing happened to my then girlfriend, now wife.
