Adios All

I've been a fan of P for about thirty years. I've been to concerts, bought every single album he's released, and put up with Graffiti Bridge. I've also defended his public actions to my friends and family... But not anymore.

After reading the dialogue between this Serpan individual and the rep at 3rdeyegirl, I've finally become disgusted with how he, his organization, and how he allows his organization, to treat his fans. Between Serpan, the individual who had those awesomely done P dolls, and other fan sites, when does one say enough is enough?

Unfortunately I won't be investing any more $ on the songs and merchandise the NPG puts out, nor will I buy concert tickets. I can't support someone who's legacy looks to end up pissing on so many people, whether its his band members(past, present, and future), his associates, and his fans. This Serpan debacle was my final straw. Yes, it was likely the verbiage of a band member, a web,aster, or even a groupie, but it still boils down to the lack of "quality control", or "caring", he and his organization displays so readily.

I realize this post may produce a lot of trolling and name-calling, but this is where I'm at. I don't have time in my life to support negativity, whenever possible. The music is where the genius is at... However, my mind has trouble separating the songs about love and "love4oneanother" from a man who approaches, and allows his organization to approach, his fans in such an embarrassing manner.

Just take what you need from prince. Most clued in fans have known for a very long time what a devious little cunt he is, a man who's musical message is totally at odds with the way he treats his fans.

But hey, fuck him. If the music is good buy it, if a good boot gets released, enjoy it.

Prince is no grand scholar, he just talks playground games. Hardly deep and meaningful.

Don't get too close to him. Most long time prince fans knew Serpan would get fucked over in the end. It's not the first time.

awesome!!! the less people that spend money on this spoiled brat the more likely it is he's come out of his dillusional coma and try to make a record that actually means something to someone other than the latest gold digger he is trying to impress .. plus it is more fun to rag on his shitty music once you've resolved not to spend money on this guy anymore .. no need to leave the org tho .. the gossip is still juicy and ya never know .. maybe he will work with a band that isn't fresh out of high school sometime soon (i know i know .. yer thinkin .. but who will be his new screw if everybody is older than 19 in his band .. how will he be inspired to brag about his money and prowess on repeat all over every new song .. how will he come up with lyrics worse than jughead and graffiti bridge) it's gonna be ok .. prince does not "need" golden toilet paper .. nor do we need another album of poo .. btw .. big city is almost a pretty good song .. he still fails on the bridge but it is so short you can almost block it out .. but yeah .. everything else still belongs in a sewer

Ok I'm getting a new account in a couple days but I really want to voice my opinion. Are we really going to boycott prince and the org..again? Seriously we've been through this a bunch of times. One of our own gets called out by prince, we "boycott/shun him and some say that his music sucks anyways knowing that they are just saying that because they are pissed. New music gets released then we are happy again. Wash, Rinse, re fucking peat. *sigh* okay I'm done.

The thing is........ there is no "proof" who was actually hiding behind the 3rdeye name.

True but considering the control prince exerts over his business I would be surprised if the poster wasn't at least operating under instruction.

Fanbase is NOT the same as "the org", Nikki. Next time he plays live, I'm sure 90% of the people who go won't even know about this.
Hey, I've got records by Chuck Berry, James Brown & Ike Turner. Prince is a sweetheart compared to those guys! I agree that the way Serpan was treated was rude, but not buying a record you want to hear simply because the artist does things you disagree with... that's nonsense!

Okay then.
The Org. is a huge chunk of Prince's fanbase! There are Orger's here from all over the world. We all have one thing in common and thats our love for the man's music. If thats not a fanbase or similar to one then I guess I don't know what a fanbase is. Prince is losing the most important part of his fanbase. The ones that have been with him through thick and thin. The ones that stood by him when Grafitti Bridge was in theaters! Whose listened/heard of FixUrLifeUp besides us? Secondly of course Prince is a sweetheart compared to IKE TURNER. Anyway I get what you're saying. This is a petty reason to stop buying Prince's merchandise when he could've done something way worse. Some people just get tired of supporting people who couldn't give 3 shits. In the words of Sweet Brown "Ain't nobody got time for that".

I wouldn't give up on the Purple Yoda just yet. It was a pretty silly move, but so is the whole catch us if you can live stream. But what do you expect from a 20 something manager. In the end Prince isn't nearly as bad as his worst critics says nor as good as the claims of his most fervent fan.

Somewhere in between me thinks..but aren't we all?

I've read and listened to every text ever written by and interview ever given by Prince and unless he's found a perfect copycat, believe me it was him chatting in person, he's got a way of saying/writing things that's quite unique lol

Drama queen exit posts over this seems kinda silly. Haven't kept up with it all but it seems like a gnats fart compared to the dark days of the collective and all that silliness. If you didn't leave through that, you're swinging on P's balls for life.

Just call him an asshole and move on. The music's too good to ignore over Prince's bad behavior.

there's music in the air
the sounds of joy and celebration

sorry nikki but supersoulfighter is right (I've been to many shows and not ever seen another orger) and it also saddens me that so many people have this sense of entitlement when it comes to stars like Prince

he's just a guy and at the end of the day he doesn't want his every move tracked

if you notice earlier in the livestream chat (that nobody seems to have posted), Serpan asks what is going to happen next with 3EG and there is no reply so after a while he asks the same thing again as if he can't wait to tweet that shit out right away - so he kind of started it when he asked again

Once upon a time, there was an Org where people left almost every other day.

"Goodbye" threads, we use to call them.

If you google it, you'll probably find the Goodbye Org template I wrote many years ago.

At some point, we basically had to semi-ban them.

I've always been into it for the music, Prince being a pain in the posterior is pretty much a given.

BTW, is this a big deal outside of the Orgiverse?

Nope, not from what I can see because no one gives a fuck about Prince or the org.

I agree .. Prince is Prince... That's why the past ten years I haven't spent one red cent on him and I never will. Just in love with his old music and watch the older recordings of him.. After musicology has been shit and its getting worse...

Oh, & never mind the worshipers, who want to defend him for no real reason whatsoever. They're all delusional & in denial. Prince is not getting anymore of my hard earned $, until he gets out of his fantasy world, & makes some damn good music again. I've said this in a thread a little while back, & I STILL mean it. nod
