Sometimes It Snows in April and Animal Planet....

Thats what I said...I was watching a special on Black Bears today on Animal Planet and one of the mothers cubs had passed away and as they were narrating it was playing the intro of Sometimes it Snows In April....However strange it may sound it kinda fit....Just thought it was a strange place to hear a Prince song pop up...Thought Yall Should Know!

The energy in this field's been known to flicker lights, aight

Asong with no name, acapella moans and a bridge of silence

Undeterred nevertheless a masterpiece on butterscotch thighs

Turn off the lights, turn off the lights

It's time for Mr Go

I've been waiting for somebody to catch on to the mother bear/bear cub subtext that's always been hidden at the heart of that song. I bet Prince has, too. razz

The biologist in that documentary is Lynn Rogers. The bears and the research are in Ely, MN.

Prince will hire Londell McMuffin to sue the bears. Then Prince won't pay Londell McMuffin, so Londell will hire Orlando attorney John Morgan to sue Prince for payment.

I saw this documentary and the Minnesota connection could well be the reason for the musical choice. In either this one or another wildlife documentary they used the into from Condition of The Heart too.

They should totally use Gett Off for the segments where the animals get it on.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.
