Some of our Purple Family concerns?

I hope some of the people I don't see posting are ok. For example, KCOOLMUSIQ, I hope he is all right. I have not seen him since the sad news broke. And anybody else that is having grief issues.

I assumed KCOOL might be Tyka. No evidence... just assumed.

KCOOL has been active on Twitter, thankfully. I hope he returns here at some point but he may not be able to handle it right now. Everybody grieves in their own way, I guess. Some people may want to talk more and some may want to talk less. I'm getting to the point where I'm ready to start talking more. May even go and see Purple Rain tomorrow at a local cinema screen........

I'm not sure whether to avoid his music or just push through this shit. Nothing of concern, really. But this is like wave after wave of tons upon tons of bricks. It may not have been his time, but "time is a trick," I guess.


sad

I hope everyone is OK, though, I can imagine, quite a few are not.

feeluupp

bart's been very silent, including him editing a post that he probably re thought, knowing it was a time to mourn.

nod

Here in Birmingham at a place called Mockingbird Theatre. They showed it last Saturday (two showings, the first sold out so they showed it again after) but I just wasn't ready. I'm still not sure if I will be tomorrow, but I guess I just have to see how I feel in the afternoon.

I imagine there might be some showings in other cities too but I'm not certain.

Speaking of cinemas, I took this picture on Sunday at another local indie cinema.....

I was at the first showing on Saturday.
Celebrating him really helped too, there was a lovely vibe and quite a few lighters waving in the audience during Purple Rain. woot!

One minute they want peace……

Then do everything to make it go away. rolleyes

Okay -- still haven't got an answer on this, but is anyone in touch with the mod Mach????

She hasn't posted anything since the start of the new year... I sent an org note to her and never got a reply. I put a mention in the post "thanking the mods" - but no one commented one way or another. Can someone please reach out to her or post here if you're in touch with her... thanks!!!!

Make sure you take tissues. Just sayin'.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Jester posted on facebook, needless to say he was distraught but posted a beautiful emotional post about experiences he had with Prince including the first playing of the Gold Standard. He is also tweeting his thoughts. My thoughts are with him.
