So, I broke up with my boyfriend today and I couldn't be more depressed, I'm sitting here at work staring into nothing and trying my damnedest not 2 start crying AGAIN ... so I start reading this thread and here I am 15 minutes later laughing my ass off with this big ass smile on my face! Thank U Prince fam! I can relate 2 most everything that's been written so far. Here's my 2 pennies:

U know you're a Prince fan if:

1.) Everytime you're at a crosswalk U start singing "Walk on their side of the street, don't walk where it feels the best, walk away from people u meet ..." and the people around u shoot U funny looks.

2.) U've ever called in to the radio station 20 times an hour just trying to get them 2 play the latest Prince single even though u had the album just cuz U wanted 2 hear him on the radio and thought that if U called enough they would play the song. (They didn't ... I tried this with "Thieves in the Temple" and "The Greatest Romance" and "Letitgo" ... those radio bastards!)

3.) Whenever you're at a club and they play a Prince song u scream in excitement and people clear the floor because something like the Holy Ghost comes over U and U just start singing and dancing and gyrating like something else has control of your body.

4) U judge the quality of a music store by their Prince collection. (This is all they have? Let's go!)

5.) Whenever someone U know sees or hears anything about Prince, they immediately call U.

6.) U thought Graffiti Bridge was a masterpiece. (Yes, I stayed to the end, yes I watched it 50 times, and yes, it's a horrible movie ... but I still think that soundtrack is a masterpiece!")

7.) U forgive his funky ass for making you wait three hours b4 he starts the show when your broke ass paid $500 for 2 tickets. (The fact he pulled me up on stage with him helpled a little there).

8.) Um, how many times have I brought Emancipation?
"If we ever naked in the same machine i'm a lick ya baby, joint 2 joint!"

You've had cats named Sheila Flea, Vanity, Jesse and Morris. Dogs named Jesse, Jimmy Jam and Prince. That later of which became TAFKAP or The Animal Formely Known As Prince.

By the way, I still have Prince and he has also reclaimed his name giggle

When you go to Kip Blackshire shows just on the off-chance Prince will be hangin' out in the back.
Who knows? I've seen Chance and Mani there.
A prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise.

*...you give Prince credit for the existence of other artists.
(Ex: If Prince had not worked with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, there
wouldn't be a Janet Jackson)


*...you enjoy pointing out that Michael Jackson is now "the weird one"


*...you've never heard: babies makin' babies, the jam, maybe your baby, etc.
before you heard His Holy Sexiness do them.

*...you answer the phone with "what it is?"

*...You can connect any famous person to Prince in six degrees or less (a la the
Kevin Bacon game)

*...You've seen Fargo 50 times, but keep missing the scene with Prince in it. ARGH!!!

*...you're ready to start a fight when someone says, "Prince who?"

*..you try to do the dance steps at the end of the When Doves Cry video
whenever you see the video. ( i can't even tell you how many times my brother has walked in on me, and starts laughing.)

*... you make a list of the obessive acts you committed, while your mother and brother stand over you're shoulder giving you more things to say or you start a thread on obessive acts over Prince.

if anybody asks u, u belong to prince...

WOW I must admit about 90% of this stuff applies to me!! boxed

I'll add

-If the guy at the local wrecka stow saved the Musicology promo posters for you

-If you spend hours on the net handling "official Prince business"

-If your mom swears Prince is her favorite artist now

-If you drove through a hurricane to make it to the Musicology show

-If you have MPEG compilations of your favorite videos

-If people regularly ask you "So, how's Prince?" with a straight face

-If you've quoted funny comments from orgers in everyday conversation

-If people continuously give you purple gifts for special occasions

-If your computer at work, school, and home features Prince wallpaper

-If you know Prince's body measurement (just in case)

-If someone asks you "Do you like John"? and you respond "no, he doesnt have enough 'Prince-like' characteristics"
If you will, so will I

When the contractor building your house looks at the lifesize Prince in your office and says "so who is this?". And you reply "my boyfriend" and he believes you.

I am LOVIN this thread! So nice to see that there are other people just like me!! Here's another one:

You know your a Prince fan if:
You get overtime at work and think "what a great way to save up for this summer in case I need to head to Minnie for some special event (I hope I hope!!)" but then you start checking out ebay and before you know it in two weeks you have won 17 items all with the heading "Prince" and totaling over $300. (Do I REALLY need a Prince mug and Purple Rain buttons???)
To GOD be the Glory!

You have seriously contemplated or have taken an early vacation when you had other plans to attend a Prince concert out of town or out of the country, or have called in sick or just didn’t go to work to attend any other event…

If you not only have a Guitar that you can't play, but a Pick that Prince used at his 1992 Fox Theater Show in Detroit (Sometime It Snows in April) that you can't play it with.

If you won a record store poster from Grafitti Bridge because your friend knew how much you loved Prince and entered your name in the raffle everytime he visited the store.

If you are consistantly looking for a better copy of "A Place in Heaven" even though you already have several grainy copies on hand.

If the only reason you moved on to new technology, is because your old record player/ cassette player/ CD player broke and you can't live with out your daily dose. So now you have to buy all of released albums/ cassettes/ CD's/ downloads again.

LMAO at this thread!

...if you decided to fashion your very own symbol.

...if your loved ones know the best way to cheer you up is to inquire about the latest developments in all things Princely.

...if you decided to watch UTCM a second time.

...if you actually made it through a complete Graffiti Bridge screening.

...if you think even actual royals are almost not worthy of using "Prince" anymore.

...you burn "Intro to Prince" CDs for all of your co-workers (including the 60 year-old lady from the Temp agency).

...friends & relatives mail you news clippings having anything to do with Prince.

...you break 5 or 6 traffic laws trying to get to a payphone when the radio station suddenly reads a bit of Prince trivia and offers concert tickets to the first caller with the right answer (that's how I got to see the One Night Alone concert in NYC!).

I'm a lurker, not a poster - but I had to get in on this one. Thanx Nikki!

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

~You've ever been on stage and played "Face Down" immediately after Rob Zombies "Super Beast".

~You've ever stooped so low as to point out the double bass in "Darling Nikki" in an attempt to get your metal-head friends to show a bit of respect.

~You once owned a fish named Prince that periodically changed it's name to an unpronouncable symbol and back again (Ahh poor Prince... 20" Egyptian Snakehead - I'm still convinced that he died of schizophrenia!)

And last but not least...

~You had the nads to wear a prince t-shirt to Ozzfest (my friends swore I was going to get them all throw out, or lynched!)

Great thread everyone! All the best...

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!!!!



I work out at NYSC too and they play a lot of Prince videos. And everytime one comes on, I have to stop what I am doing and watch it. It drives my workout partners crazy. But I don't care.
hmph!

you made your friends for christmas and birthdays a 5 disk "how to become a prince fan" set including biography, photos, lyrics and certain things to point out (like "when doves cry" has no base part)

you're a radical feminist but force your other radical feminist friends to watch "Purple Rain" and get very upset when they say it's mysogonist, because only YOU can point that stuff out, not them.


while you're on the train w/a friend, you stop her mid sentence because some guy got on and you know he's playing a prince song from his Ipod. you then turn to said friend and say "He's playing prince. I need to find out what song that is" and strain to hear until you understand the sound of "7" and begin singing along, doing hand motions and everything. (i did this on the 1 train downtown one saturday morning.)


you know you will never truly understand your mother when she utters these two phrases "I've never wished that I'd written a song" and "You know I don't like Prince."

i love this thread. just keep thinking of more stuff
