Just curious, when ppl refer to 'T' as in the various leaked bootlegs, is that the same 'T' aka Therese Stoulil that's being mentioned here? I always wondered who was rumored to be behind those. But if it's not the same 'T', who is the bootleg 'T'??



I'm pretty sure it's this guy



I don't think so. I skimmed through then went to his YouTube page. This guy's name appears to be Marc Doty.




T's name was Tim, I think. Can't remember his last name. I met him at the 2002 Celebration. Isn't it strange that I can't completely be sure that the guy in this video isn't him? LOL. Pretty sure it's not.



After a quick scan of the vid he mentions he used to be called Terpsicore (sp?) or 'T' at 58:40 mark. If I'm putting one plus one together and getting 3, then my bad.

Dunno. Seems to have a completely different disposition than the T that I remember from here and a.m.p. and never really seemed like the kind of guy to have as much going on as that YouTube channel and the associated Facebook page would suggest.

Does anyone know if Prince commonly signed "with Love" and the Symbol???
What are you outraged about today? CNN has not told you yet?

Transformed1

Back in early 1997, I travelled a lot for work. I spent a lot of time on my laptop while in my hotel rooms.

This was when AOL was a major source for the internet in most of America. Anyways, I remember signing up for some kind of email list that Prince was compiling from his website at the time (love4oneanother? I don't remember which one anymore). Only a few days after joining that email list, fairly late in the evening, I heard the familiar AOL "You've got mail". It was from the screenname "NPG17Days" @aol.com. It was an invite to a one-off show that was going to take place in Los Angeles in a few days. I'm from Los Angeles, but was out of state for work.

If any of you remember how AOL instant messenger worked at the time, you could check to see if a particular screen name was online or not. I checked, and it was. I sent a IM and had a brief conversation with who I am 99% certain was Prince. I never asked, and he never said it was Prince, but I believe it was, and he answered in a way that led me to believe it was, even though it was never said. I told him thanks for the invite to the L.A. show, but I was stuck in New Mexico for the next couple of weeks. His response was "There's a NEW Mexico? smile". I asked if he was online for anything specific or just surfing. Answer was "surfing, U?" I remember one of the responses to something I wrote was "now there's a wonderful sound". It ended when he said "I have to go, I'm waiting for someone."

I put that screen name on my list that alerted me whenever they were online (I know, stalker) but I never send any other messages, nor received any. I saw the screen name come online only late in the evenings, like 1am or so. Eventually, I stopped seeing the screen name pop up, and when I searched for it, it said it was on "private", which was an option at that time on AOL.

I think I might have told this story online at some point in time many years ago, and a lot of people did not believe me, or they thought that it was not Prince. But I'm pretty sure it was based on the circumstances and the conversation. Could easily have been an employee of his trying their best to answer the way fans would expect though. Anything is possible.

I still have that old laptop, and I remember saving that chat log. One day I will try to see if I can still access it.
