"Take a Picture, Sweetie!" - Odds and Ends From the Past Week

Because I'm in my rewriting stage, I don't have any exciting interviews to discuss. So, I thought I'd just share some Prince-related images of my activities during the past week.

Well, as most Prince fans know, the "3rd Eye Girl" drama that I mentioned last Monday continued throughout the whole week. I had a BLAST at Dr. Funkenberry and Seth Everett's spreecast last Wednesday:

We talked about the possibility of Prince creating a new website. Also, Prince is thinking about inviting fans to concerts at his Paisley Park Studios. I would definitely go if I had enough notice, and I think he should charge standard ticket prices.

I went ahead and tweeted 3rd Eye Girl and sent "her" some messages about my book. No, I haven't heard back, but I had to try, right?

For the first section of the book, I've consulted newspaper and magazine articles, interviews I've done, primary documents, and books and statistics on Minneapolis. I've also listened to music that might provide insight into Prince's life. For example:
I just listened closely to the song "Papa" from the "Come" album for the first time tonight. It really affected me--even though it's short and somewhat vague, it made me emotionally uncomfortable. I don't think I can listen to it multiple times (on a more upbeat note, my favorite song from this album is "Letitgo").

Ok, I'll admit it; I've had this poster on my wall longer than a week, but I wanted to share it. One of my best friends gave it to me. I love it!

What are your thoughts on 3rd Eye Girl, "Papa," or my awesome poster?
