GHOST OF THE YEAR

.

Three years after his death, we rediscovered the prolificness of Prince, thanks to albums that unearthed treasures from his legendary Paisley Park vault. “The Originals” featured Prince’s versions of songs he penned for the Bangles, the Time, Sheila E., Kenny Rogers and others, while the recent “Super Deluxe” reissue of “1999” included two dozen 1980s nuggets from the Chanhassen safe. Keepsakes from the vault also turned up in “The Beautiful Ones,” Prince’s mini-memoir with handwritten lyrics, family photos and other ephemera, which went to No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller nonfiction list. And this is just the tip of the Purple iceberg.

I like to think he'd've had a good chuckle over that.

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

Ghost of the year 😂. Fucking hell...

I'd love to see the nominees. Slimer from the Ghostbusters must have been considered. And I bet poor Casper must be livid that he was overlooked. Patrick Swayze too. Unfortunately Bill Cosby's character from Ghost Dad couldn't be reached for comment...
