Spreecast Topic Tonight

I wonder what Seth and DrF will discuss this evening, as we have not had much going on in the Prince world this past few days. Any ideas? Bless them.

Actually, there are the upcoming European concerts in a few days time ... e.g. Scandinavia

So what will they talk about, the upcoming Festivals, rumours of hit and run tour in UK and Europe, maybe about the long live stream on the weekend, and hopefully when we could expect the next one?

Actually, I think Seth would be very good at moderating a discussion about Prince and his fans on Spreecast. DrF might feel as though as he is in a somewhat compromised position, given that he has a closer working relationship with Prince, but I think he is still able to see more than one side of the story and arguments and present a balanced perspective. Ultimately, it would say A LOT if Serpan-gate is NOT mentioned and discussed at length in the Spreecast. The fact of the matter is that Prince's organisation have just acted in an highly questionable and unprofessional manner, which many individuals found distasteful.

I have just been informed that Serpan-gate has been requested to NOT be discussed on Spreecast, even though it's the elephant in the room.

swanny, I would politely request that you remain polite. I personally think DrF does a good job. It is obvious that it cannot be easy working alongside Prince from a PR perspective.

I don't know how they are gonna stop people discussing it in the chat if they want to. I don't think they would start booting people. I dunno. I think there's not that much to say TBH. The whole thing is really overblown if you ask me.

Weak sauce. Looks like he has to keep Prince happy to remain in business.

Hi Militant,

I appreciate that perspective - that it is much ado about nothing, but clearly, there are others who disagree with you (a thread on the issue triggered almost 500 comments, whereas a thread on the new Prince song, Shades of Umber, contained 0 comments).

On an unrelated note, I like your new music!

Wow! The Vibe has really changed around here. I've never felt this much heat and negativity since the Crystal Ball fiasco. popcorn flower teddy dove

I think that DrFunkenberry does a good "informal" job of consistently informing those interested about most of the news and latest tidbits in current circulation about Prince. It acts as a one-stop shop of sorts, without requiring payment/fees. It is free of charge and no one is required to utilise the service. It is a social media form of voluntary community engagement.

*

Via Spreecast, the service by Seth Everett and DrFunkenbery has already provided fans with an unprecedented level of interaction, sense of community and opportunity for debate. Given that "news" directly from Prince is typically non-existent, I find that it is a welcome, somewhat amateur but nonetheless cute, halfway house and quite likely the best avenue we can expect to receive as fans.

*

As Serpan-gate demonstrated, Prince does not appear to hire and pay professionals for his PR and Communication's work.

And whilst we're at it, what exactly is a sand dollar? Is that referring to the same situation where a fan wished to hand to Prince a recording of her demo at a concert?

No, I meant that everybody had said all that had needed to be said, and so if anything gets said in the chat tonight it's just gonna be a rehash, and probably most people have said how they felt and moved on from it.

And thanks, I am going out to LA in a few days for label meetings and working with some songwriters over there. I'm glad you like what you heard! smile

No, those are two separate incidents.

Sand Dollar = girl tried to give Prince a sand dollar, he dropped it by accident and it broke, she came on the org upset like he did it on purpose and a riot ensued.

What you're referring to is the "Dvinity" incident - http://prince.org/msg/12/...?&pg=1

I thought it was widely known that the Org represents ONLY a small proportion of the Prince fan community. The fan demographic attracted to Spreecast is likely to include individuals who follow Prince e.g former NPGMC members, former Housequake members, other fans etc), but who are not part of the Org and therefore have not had an opportunity to discuss the situation as it relates to the apparent unpleasant tone and conduct between Prince and his fans. If so many were outraged at the Org, it stands to reason then that other members of the wider Prince fan community are likely to want to have the situation addressed. Whilst the 3rdEyGirl representative clearly stated they wanted to keep their conversations within a small community, it is entirely possible that individuals at the Livestream event might have witnessed the bully-like behaviour in real time. I am aware of individuals who were shocked - but remained in silence - at the 3rdEyeGirl representative's behaviour. So, whilst the Org might have given "voice" to the situation, I think it would be fair to say that the Org's "culture" is quite unique compared to other places. For example, I wonder how the NPGMC members would have reacted? Serpan was/is a very popular individual in the fan community and - in many ways - we are all connected, so, even if we may not know each other (in person), it could have been any one of us. I, for one, did not appreciate the behaviour of Prince's organisation. It was reprehensible and it hasn't gone unnoticed by many that Prince has issued no formal (or informal) communication about the unacceptable behaviour, which is all the more surprising given the very vocal response about just how distasteful the situation left many fans feeling.

GOOD LUCK IN LA!

Way overblown. And if you look closely, it wasn't the person who was the recipient of the 3rdeyegirl's comments who made it so. That oughta tell you something.
