Good. Hopefully we'll get some traction on the estate front.

It looks like they slighty changed the format to buying PP tickets. Kinda nervous and excited to find out what happens after november. I hope they continue after dark parties in NPG room and live music events in soundstage.

I moved to Minnesota back in April and have been attending the After Dark Parties at least once a month but often 2 times a month. It has been a cool experience. Lenka Paris is this week's DJ. I am excited yet nervous about what kinds of changes I will see (if there are any) this weekend. I just really most of all hope I dont pull up to a whole new staff instead the usual faces that I see working there.

I'm VERY excited by these two new development partners. I've always felt Graceland did just enough to keep Prince's(r.i.p.) massive sprawling PaisleyPark just under enough not to surpass Graceland's Elvis museum.

How could it ever surpass Graceland? PP is in suburbia 30 miles or so from Minneapolis with not much else around it and no real opportunity for expansion.

Expansions will come when the money rolls in which it will...Paisley Park is a future GOLDMINE.

Where is there room to expand? I guess maybe the property right across the street but I'm not sure if the estate can do anything with it.

You'll see no changes this weekend, except maybe for merchandise. The staff is still the same, except for one. I met Alan at the Nooky Jones show. He seemed nice enough.

So now there are TWO new companies involved, all in the business of making a profit for themselves, before a cent goes back into Paisley Park!

.

Why need two companies? How big is this 'Paisley Park' anyway?

Why can't the estate handle this by themselves?

Is it that hard and specific?

Is the PP merchandise area gone? It has disappeared from their website.
