This is the voice of the Misterons.....

The first 10 years of your sex life was the love scene from Purple rain over and over again and when you finally break up its the fight scenes BEFORE purple rain....only you never get to sing purple rain and make up.

Dude.....IM TWISTED!!!

Misteron


Oh man, you are so not twisted.
Thats almost as profound as the lyrics themselves!

You know you're a Prince fan...

when he has you standing up and waiting for him for 8 HOURS and you and your friends are cussing him to hell and back, but as soon as he steps on the stage all is forgiven and you thank God for Prince's existence.

This is true! In the summer of '95 Prince missed his plane in L.A. and we waited in the soundstage at Paisley Park from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. When he finally took the stage. I think he said, "Sorry, I'm late" or it could have been the first cord of his guitar that made my feet stop hurting (it's not good to stand on concrete for a long time). He performed for two hours. It was a beautiful night.

When a Prince song comes on the radio or in a store, your heart starts pounding, you drop what you're doing and sing along in absolute momentary bliss - even though it's a song you're so fucking sick of, you never play it anymore.

I KNOW, what's UP with that? Raspberry Beret or 1999 or some other uberhit that I've come to hate will come on in a public place and all of a fucking sudden you'd think it was my favorite song in the universe from my reaction!

You take the day off school and work on the day of a new Prince release so that
you can get it as soon as its released in the "wrecka stow" and spend the
whole day listening to it. ( i did that with "Crystal Ball" and it became a custom.)


If you log onto the org every single day looking for news on anything prince related.

or

If you spend a healthy part of your time at work each day looking for unreleased music (which i do. hahahaa)

I knooooow. I remember going to see Prince with my sisters. He was at Club Black in New York and it was freezing, although it was March. I was wearing pumps and suit pants and a blazer, no coat. I was freezing and my hands were numb and my ears hurt. The people in line were going to get coffee and cocoa, but I didn't dare move. I even had tears and even said, "I am going home!"

But once I got inside, I forgot about how bad my feet and hands hurt and just started dancing!

You know the difference between "Un2" and "In2"

U write with 4's and Eyes and U's and B's

You bought your mother New Power Soul (I really did!)

Musicology's success secretly makes you a little angry because it wasn't The Rainbow Children.

You defend the name change eloquently & ridiculously.

You think Wendy & Lisa are an important force in music.

You're sick of seeing him sing Purple Rain in concert.

This is sort of a rehash, but you say things like:
"I'm gonna have one of those sandwiches" at parties and laugh to yourself.

I love the one above "You roll their eyes when a casual fan says their favorite Prince album is Purple Rain."

*You've actually gotten into physical altercations because people were
"talking sh%*...." about your boy Prince

*Can't sleep unless you're listening to N.E.W.S.

*Start using a Digitech Whammy Pedal (guitarists, holla...)

*Get a pompadour going even though you're white

*Start using St. Ives Lilac/Lavender Lotion just for that purple smell and soft skin.....

*Tell kids at the school you work at that they should not be impressed by Lil John and the Eastside boys because it's the new minstrel show, instead they should check out The Rainbow Children

*Putting "God" on repeat in the CD player when you're getting it on with your lady

*Bringing your Telecaster into the bathroom with you when you're taking a bath
even though the steam warps the wood

Boy ! If I gotta Tell U then U just DON"T KNOW! My ANTICS are CELLULOID FODDER and THENSOME! He has been my INSPIRATION, My DREAMLOVER , My HERO ever since HIGHSCHOOL. He is SO ULTIMATE and NOBODY CAN EVER Take his Place. As DUMB as it ALWAYS is I NEVER FEEL GOOD ENOUGH to be RIGHT BY His SIDE . He makes me BREATH HARD in Fact he Makes me DANCE HARDER. I get Soo Nervous that I SHAKE. I can be ALRIGHT on my OWN in the SAME SITUATIONS But BECOME a DAMN FOOL AROUND him Cause he is My TRUE IDOL. I actually sit 5 or 10 rows back for FEAR he will see a PIMPLE. I NEVER feel Thin ENOUGH Either However I know he DOESN'T CARE. It's a ZEL thing and LET'S NOT EVEN go On Bout my HAIR. I have Issues and they are very VAIN and SUCH but C'est le Vie. I STILL will Travel the WORLD TENFOLD to SEE His SHOWS. Even if I NEVEr APPROACH . Well ....that's just the WAY It GOES.

You check the "Prince" music section at Barnes and Nobles every time you go just in case some import you probably have already shows up on the shelf.
