My book on Prince comes out September 22!

I’ve written a memoir about being a Prince fan...and the Org figures prominently in the book. It’s called “Purple Bananas: How Prince Saved Me and Other Selections from the Soundtrack 2 My Life.”

It comes out September 22!

Nothing against the book or its author, but I found it slightly odd that he refers to Prince as the "Purple Yoda from Minneapolis" and not the "Purple Yoda from Minnesota"...

Lemme asks you: if you read an article in the newspaper, an article about a crime, do you think that the journalist is endorsing said crime? Or is he merely REPORTING ABOUT THE GODDAMN THING.

Fan books aren't "on Prince". They are about the fan(s) themselves.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

I joined the Org back in 1995, but I deactivated my account a few times over the years.
