Astrology isn't real and if it were it pertains to personality attributes, not physical appearance. Unless you're calling him Fish Eyes.

You are incorrect on several levels.

But we can be sure this bit is correct.

Prince was the godfather of one of Sanandas children ?

Never heard...

Quote out of: Pandora's PlayHouse by Sa...facts.com)

I wanted to write something simple and heartfelt to honor the wonderful life of my friend and mentor, PRINCE.

There isn't much more to say about it. He was like THE BIG BROTHER YOU DREAM OF HAVING. The one who went before you and made it easier for you to be yourself. He was the idol that proved. Other idols were shady. Master Jackson HATED ME, HARD! But particularly masters Prince and Miles embraced me like a LONG LOST SOUL. One that they knew NEEDED it.

And I've only grown closer to them in the years as I HAVE GROWN. ASTRAL TWINS ARE USUALLY BORN WITHIN four years of the other. And more than anyone, I always felt that Maestro Prince Rogers Nelson and I were fathered by the same spirit. And we are STILL catching up to the genius of his musical legacy and stunning musicianship. We are lucky to have had him. He is the godfather to one of my children so he remains a part of my family. I MISS HIM AND DEDICATE THIS SONG TO HIS MEMORY.

I've not heard that before!

Oh yeah, what an amazing word joke. confused

Biggest problem with having the pie sign on the pie in the video? That's not a pie, it's a fucking cake! What kind of pie you ever eaten that had icing on it?!?!?

I really like the animated parts of the video, I actually find them pretty moving, with Sananda and all his dead influences waving goodbye as the ship/shuttle takes off... I wish they had just used that animation style for the whole video, the rest is cheap and nasty and detracts massively from the song - particularly that totally unconvincing moment of Sananda standing in the empty room pretending to play the guitar.... euch.....

It's a shame, because the song is growing on me. This is the reason I generally hate music videos, they can really colour and/or taint the music itself.

I hope Sananda is well. He's a massive talent and briliiantly idiosyncratic artist who has had the balls to follow his own path, come what may.... Not everything he's released since going indie has been worthy of him, but there's almost always something interesting going on in his music and/or at some point on his albums.

This might be my favourite line I've ever read on the Org.

I'm a pretty big fan of Sananda/TTD but if I'm being honest this new song sounds like it was recorded with a butter knife and candle wax. He went way too far off the rails in his recent efforts. His stuff sounds like pretentious crap and now it isn't even well recorded.

I've been thinking the same thing! I am a really big fan, but his recent albums are almost unlistenable to me. This latest release seems to have some decent tracks, but hard to get through it. I'm always hoping he'll come out with a great rock album.

I didn't follow him but his recent comments about he and Prince being from the

same spiritual source, that they were astral twins, etc. was somewhat off-putting to me.

Too self-referential.

It's at 3:22 in the video, if you don't wanna sit through that horrible song.



Phew. Thought I was alone. I used to like TTD. Saw him live back in the day. That song encapsulates what hell smells like.
blah blah blah

I saw him live once too at the Kentish Town Forum in the early 2000s and, as much as I LOVE his work, it was truly a shitty concert, one of the worst I have ever been to. I walked out. He was behaving like the ultimate sex-fueled rock star; there was so much gyration and weird ballet dancing (if you can call it that). It was just all over the top. The band was nothing to speak of too.

I still listen to his albums often but jeez that was a bad concert. I know it's said often that Prince could have used another producer later on in his career (I don't necessarily subscribe to that idea) but if there is one artist who could use a second pair of ears, it's Terence Trent D'Arby.

Haha, thanks for taking that with a smile! lol In truth, no rudness was directed at you, more at the makers of the video.... clearly they meant to make the visual pun of have the 'pie' symbol on a pie, but then they went and made a cake for the video! I appreciate that the translation of the word may make it a moot point, but to me that was a rookie error in the video. Let's face it, the video isn't great, haha..... but I do really like those animated sequences. biggrin

Kiddies--his verse of "pie in the sky" is an expression. A cake with a pi symbol is within the paremeters of the expression, no? It could be anything, really to serve as the pie of which he speaks--just sayin'.

This brings back memories! I saw him live when he supported Simply Red years ago, before his debut album was out! He was great and on the verge of being a big star in england. Mainly due to The music show The Tube and paula Yates, who was pushing him on the programme as the next big thing
