The Days of Being Excited About Prince are Gone

Use to be a time where every song or new release made me excited lol and lawd let's not forget about the pics cloud9 but now all this 3rdeye shit and random messing with fans is making me think something is wrong with him eek I mean even a few yrs ago with 20ten was exciting-so what happened to make it this way? Also, all these years of having to search for Prince shit cuz he chooses not to release stuff for his U.S. fans has grown tiresome too. I mean damn I had to pay a good penny just to get 20ten. Fandom should be exciting and joyful not like "oh damn what has Prince done now." Why continue to waste money on litigation against sites, fans, etc. It makes no sense. Why not try to keep the people who have supported u instead of continuously doing things to drive supporters away? I mean let's have a serious, fair discussion if that's possible on the Org lol

The days of being excited about Prince not being exciting are gone: we have one thread a week about this, and just as if trying to be right on time u post ur thread exactly one week after the last one (http://prince.org/msg/7/399785), so just as I told the other guy about last week's thread, try and say something original, or go bore people to death on another forum, thanks wink

I was thinking about this too, and I agree 1,100%!!!

The way he does shit though sometimes makes me think he's got something BIG up his sleeve. I'm sure most of us have hgeard about the "six year plan" he had culminating with "Purple Rain". Well I'd LIKE to think he's got another plan hatching. But then he just goes left field with shit, and makes it so hard to 1. get his shit 2. defend him and 3. not get the fond memories I have from my childhood tainted with this new person's dictorial bullshit.

I have made zero effort to hear his new music, mostly because with every release he's making the WB days look like a fluke, but mostly because of all the BS he expouts.

I try very hard to separate the artist from the asshole, but dude is blurring those lines with every turn. Sad really. sad

I agree...I kinda always think maybe something big is coming or maybe something will be released or happen to make me feel enjoyment again, but it never does and yes that makes me sad.

We're all grown here hopefully lol and most of us grew up with Prince. Not saying he shouldn't change cuz most adults do. But what happened to make being his fan so miserable? I think Im upset because I dont wanna feel like that, but he keeps doing things to make his fans leave and feel that way eek

I know I've changed and some of the antics just aren't interesting to me anymore, I'm looking for more reliability. He's still my boo and I'm pretty well tethered. I'm just not running to and fro trying to seek him out. If I happen to catch him I'm cool, if I miss him shrug I'll catch him on the next go around. Maybe. I lost interest in the latest protege thing 10000 miles ago. It would be nice to be able to keep up with his musical collection without jumping through a ton of loops, that's the turn off.

I feel that way too-it's like it's not interesting anymore. That bothers me though cuz his music has always been apart of my musical life. I think you summed up the way Im feeling nicely.

If you are miserable and upset then its time you take some quality time out of Prince world and the Org. I'm not insulting you nursy biggrin, its just not that serious in the real world. lol If he came to my town and I had the money AND I could get a table (cant do general admission anymore), I'd go because its live music which I enjoy and life is too short.

Not insulted...That's why I dont post that much anymore cuz when I do the thread turns out like this. People dont like to hear the truth. im just really sad by the way Prince treats his fans. I always hoped he would grow older and not continue to do "interesting" things lol to his fans. I use to be so excited to tell younger folks about Prince's music and now I just dont anymore.

His quantity over quality approach is what ruined the experience for me more than anything else over the last 2 and a half decades.
The least thing I care for is his idiotic behavior. He was and still is all about having an effect.

I feel you! There is so much truth to the text (1958-1993) on this album cover and it reminds me to let go of a time that once was. 1978-1993, that period is true fandom and pandemonium for me, beyond that..... eek

I want to try and stay optimistic about Prince. Because he is amazing what he.does and I really admire him so I dont want to give up just yet.

But I respect and understand your opinion :3

I'm surprised it took you this many years to realize this *and no this has nothing to with serpan-gate* lol
For me the excitement has been gone for years

How can I get excited about music he releases when I cant even buy the stuff

Ok we got a few songs via 3rdeye.com what ever that web site was called

I have to search for his new music via bootleg shrug and at that some times its not even worth it

The last time i was excited is when he released the Lotus Flower 3 CD set

Now dont get me wrong i love the guy and his music, but is an official CD worth of music too much to ask for?
And i know the answer .. yes it is lol

Cant believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap pimp2

And I descend from grace, In arms of undertow
I will take my place, In the great below
