Arbitrary things your fandom has led you to do?

I don't mean queing for a new album or flying around the world for a concert. Things that are not related to seeing or acquiring Prince music.

Example. Watching Barbarella because It was featured in 3chains.

I'll start

As a teenager I dated a Nikki and a Vicki for no other reason than their names. I never met a Shockadelica unfortunately.

Two weeks ago I bought some of my mates purple snickers before a Prince concert just because....

Come on. Own up, don't be shy. Its confession time. biggrin

The only thing I remember is when I was a teenager I met this guy during summer vaction, who used to dress a bit like a cross between Prince and Batman. It must have been during the Batman era, and I kinda had a crush on him. We sat one nigth by the pool, and he started talking about Cincy C, acting very arrogant, cause he thought he knew it all about those songs and Prince while looking at me as if I even didn't know who Prince is. Soon he found out I was a Prince fan too, and began trying to impress me...it was like a battle who knew more...and he had to win....anyway, that's one of a story that I have not forgotton...I think his name was Patrick lol I thought it was funny cause he kinda had a weird Prince look but also he really had an extensive Prince knowledge for that time. I must have been impressed

Edit: wink

Crack open a bible. (for references in Psalms, Genesis, Proverbs, & Revelations).

That reminds me of Jamie Foxx on Letterman talking about enjoying the 2004 concerts, back to the hits, instead of the "get your bibles out" concerts he was doing before. lol

I really like the shade of blue the "blue angel" guitar from the LoveSexy shows had. I've painted my acoustic guitar with the same color and have used that shade of blue in quite inappropriate contexts (web site design etc.).

You must agree with just how bad that movie is?! smile It would be nice to see a quality movie made using nothing but Prince songs (other than Purple Rain, ofcourse).

"Listen to; Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3"

yeahthat ; That's something I did too! lol.

Consider time as it was, and changed my association to it..Although I was in the process of that a while ago. lol

I value buttons and cufflinks more too because of Lovesexy (Big Large Black & White Buttons)

Cufflinks..(Prince wears a lot nice ones...Very stylish and C O O L)

It's Button Therapy, Baby!

I have a few from my teenage years....

Bought Joni's Hissing of the Summer Lawns,

Took a bath with my pants on,

Painted my bedroom walls purple,

Wore baggy polo neck jumpers circa 1996/97

Performed the 'pimp sandwich' routine from Graffiti Bridge on many unsuspecting females

Used 2, U, 4, B, abbreviations when writing on the desks in school

Wore shirts with oversized buttons and flared trousers that were 2 sizes too small

Invented and used countless pseudonyms..

Called random Minneapolis phone numbers and played Prince music down the line!

"What it is" is a staple in my vernacular, to the point where I had forgotten where it came from! biggrin

When Purple Rain was out I challenged a fellow popper to a popping match and ran out of moves. So I broke out with the "feel you're buttocks and groin" move from I Would Die 4 U. I won!
