old skool music

contract.jpgI found this picture amusing, and can imagine y'all can think up even better captions for this picture. After a turmultuous relationship with Warner Bros., then going on his own route for a while, O+(-> has recently signed on with Universal for a one-album deal. Growing up a mere two-hour drive from Minneapolis, Prince was the man back in high school, and I even drove up for a double-screening for the laughable sequel to Purple Rain, the ill-fated Graffiti Bridge. It had a good soundtrack though, and I've seen him live a few times here in DC, including an intimate late-night show at the 9:30 Club.

Tip: If you want to really stump someone playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, try using Prince as a starter. Clue: His noir film Under the Cherry Moon featured newcomer Kristin Scott Thomas as lead actress.

On Friday I'll be going to see Cyndi Lauper with Sandra Bernhard at the 9:30 Club with Superstar Brettie for some more Old Skool music.

"My muchkin finger will fit into even the tightest straight man's ass."

It's much more fun to play Six Degrees and pick people on the street. You're guaranteed to find they've dated at least three of your friends.

Is that why Sandy hasn't been in the store lately? I may just go see her is she comes to NYC.

Cyndi Lauper on Friday should be a great show! We'll be there also.

Alternate caption:

"Hey, wanna smell Vanity?

...Appolonia?

...Susannah Melvoin?"

...etc.

he is the MAN fa shiizle! i've seen him live here a few times also, but damn if i could have gotten my hands on those 9:30 tix! how was that show? last year's gig at the mci center was the best concert i'd ever been to. i'd just wish he's sung "elephants & flowers", "good love" & "i could never take the place of your man"....

Ha ha - excellent photo.

And well timed too - have you heard the new single (it's on the NPGMC and iTunes).

My caption "Push it up!"
