...you have tons of Prince-related vinyl (and continue to buy more) even though you don't have a turntable.
...you have ever gone to the record store, found a rare Prince 12" or something, but not had enough money, so you hid it in a different section so no one else could get it before you came back!

* ...you have a recurring dream that you are in a really cool, backstreet wrecka stow which has a rack full of pristene, obscure Prince 12" and 7" vinyl but it turns into a nightmare when you dream you have a limited budget and eventually leave with nothing because you couldn't make your mind up

* ...your homepage is www.prince.org, the independent and unofficial Prince fan community site

* ...you know that (as of 8 February 2005) your Prince, and related artists, record collection cost you exactly £3,553.25 ($6,606.59 US) and has a value of approxiamtely £7,275.24 ($13,526.93 US) making a percentage increase of 195% (figures do not include the Sign 'O' The Times DVD in transit from Canada and two undisclosed items currently being bid for on eBay)

* ...you own "Good Question", by Good Question

OMG, I'm embarassed for myself reading this thread. Two things that stick out for me:

-Adopted phrases. You WILL catch me saying things like, "what it is?", "NOW what time is it?", "freezer burn". . ."oh lawd". . .lol

-The pet name thing. I've had a fish named Camille, a cat named Paisley, and I've fallen in love with this puppy whom I'm already mentally calling Victor. It's a sickness.

--you tape over important events like graduations or weddings because Prince was on TV and you forgot to get a new tape

--you get mad when you go to a concert and people certainly less qualified than you actually scored seats in front of you

--you wake up 3 hours before the npgmc pre-sale and keep staring at the "not available" box for 2 hours and 59 minutes

--you actually consider going to another city to see a Prince concert, but won't go to see a boyfriend/girlfriend's favorite act in your own city

--you actually learned The Lord's Prayer from listening to Controversey

--rather than watch CNN or read the newspaper, you base all your political beliefs on Prince songs

--unhappy with you current work situation, you write "slave" on your cheekbone in permanent marker

--feeling the need to mix sexuality and religion, you go to church with no bra on or free ball it in knit slacks
you look better on your facebook page than you do in person hmph!

...you extend a business trip in a warm location so your S.O. can join you for some r&r but then you jump up at 8 am Saturday morning to drive an hour to find the only Kinkos to log into npgmusicclub for the Musicology presale even though you're already going the other two nights then when the browser freezes at 10 am sale time you almost tear the roof off the goddam Kinkos. neutral But you still get your tikkies in the end because at the last second you see the goddam "SLOW CONNECTION?" button. biggrin

...you take cameraphone pix at one Musicology show and get grabbed by security as (you swear!) Prince gives you the stinkeye -- as does your s.o., who actually gets upset and says P is "mad" at you. lol

...you got on your first set of then-cutting edge Simmons electronic drums and asked the engineer to give you a "Princier" kick drum sound and he had no effing idea what you were talking about.

...your first dance was Saviour and -- goddam -- the band did all right.

...you blast the Holy River guitar solo in the parking lot at a Rush show you've flown four hours to get to and are piss'd nobody asks what it is. Even your brother who's sitting in the passenger seat of your rented Mustang.

thumbs up! Great thread, I'm really enjoying people's responses.

You know you're a Prince fan if:

1) You find yourself jokingly referring to Prince as "my boyfriend", even though you know damn well that he's happily married to Mani, and there is no chance in HELL that he would ever be interested in you. lol

2) After you go to see a Prince show, you have such a great time, you wished that you could do it again the next night. Or, worse yet, you find that even though you don't know Prince personally or vice-versa, you miss the guy, and wish he could stick around in your hometown for a while longer. lol

3) You find yourself cursing, which is something you didn't do before you got into Prince. lol

4) You adopt a pet just because its name is Prince, or something that has to do with Prince, whether it's part of a song title, or maybe even one of his alter-egos (Jamie Starr, Alexander Nevermind, etc.). I adopted a cat purposely because his foster family named him Prince, although he still does not know his name. lol

5) Family, friends and acquaintances tell you, "I saw/heard Prince on the radio/TV yesterday, and I thought of you." lol

6) You dress up in a real funky outfit at a concert, hoping that Prince will notice and invite you onstage to dance. lol

7) Many times when someone is talking to you about something, they say something that reminds you of a Prince song. lol

8) Shortly after Prince releases a new CD, you're ready for another one, because you enjoyed it so much. lol

9) Your family gets concerned because they know how much you like Prince, and they try to tell you not to listen to him, that he's evil. rolleyes This has actually happened to me already, and it damaged a good relationship that I had with a cousin of mine. disbelief

10) You have a burning desire to get all of the bootleg songs, videos and concerts that you can get your hands on. lol

11) You find yourself using words like, "cool", "man" and the like. lol

12) You count the days until June, and hope to God that Prince has a celebration in Minny, so that you can go and hang out with your org buddies, to tour Paisley Park, and to watch Prince perform. lol

13) You find yourself getting angry at family/friends for turning off the TV/radio if Prince is on performing, or if one of his songs is playing. lol

14) People tell you, "Ewww, you like Prince? Why?", and you feel like his personal bodyguard, spokesperson, family member or friend defending him. lol

15) You charge a large amount of money on your credit card (even though it will put you into debt) because there is an expensive Prince item that you just HAVE to have and can't live without. lol

Musicology2004

u completed your offical CD/LP collection years ago, and are almost finished with your bootleg collection...


ur friends make sure you arent driving when u go places because they know all you have in your car are prince and lenny kravitz cds.

u spend more than half your night glued to your computer on NPGMC, the org, or housequake

ur haunted every day for not going to see prince in chicago evertime when it was only 50 miles away... but instead only see him once in Milwaukee.... (musicology tour)


one tour every 2 or 3 years isnt enough....

ur best friends are from the org/housequake/npgmc

u need your fill of prince music at least an hour a day....

u wont admit that the acting in purple rain is pretty bad.....

u dont care that your idol used to wear lace onstage....

u wish u could change ur name to a symbol....

u do the stupid hand motion when hearing I would die 4 u....


ok thats enough for now....

You know your a Prince fan when although you own both editions of Purple Rain, you still watch it on TV whenever it comes on. Even if you have to go to work the next morning and its on TV at 1am.

You know your a Prince fan when your entire cubicle at work is a shrine for Prince.

You know your a Prince fan when you use your income tax return to buy the cloud guitar. wacky

When your mom call's him Princessa
When People say: Oh I like prince 2 and proceed 2 butcher Purple Rain, u run from the room screaming"Make It Stop".

* You know who John Prine is

* Your apartment lift says 'Going down!', and you complete the verse till 'yeah yeah yeah' just as the lift reaches the ground floor

* You get dressed in the morning and sing 'purple underpants' to the tune of 'purple partymix'

* Already mentioned, but when you check the P section at the wrecka stow knowing full-well you've got every variation of everything he's every released.

* You imported the Japanese Arms of Orion 3" CD so you could get a copy of I Love U In Me on CD

* You took an international flight to catch da man in concert

* You can bring Prince into any conversation about anything

* You try explaining to people about the inner meaning of the lyrics to Cream

* You hear a funky CD and are in utter disbelief that there's no mention of Prince in the booklet
[Edited 2/7/05 21:25pm]
Life it ain't real funky unless you got that orgPop.

isobelfq

you get especially angry when you hear britney spear's "slave for you" because you know it's just a rip off of "Nasty Girl" and you tell everyone who listens and even those who don't.

You try to convince yourself that you like the Black Album (maybe it will grow on me)

it really really hurts your heart when you don't like something he's done.

you watch the entire broadcast of the people's choice awards in the hopes that you will see another glimpse of him.

you walk out of your total body conditioning class at NYSC just because the kiss video came on.

in your daily prayers, no matter what, you add the coda "Please god, Let Prince play paisley park and Starfish and Coffee at his next concert. Oh, and be single."

yes, sadly, I have done all of that and more. And i'm not ashamed!!!!
