"Take a Picture, Sweetie!" - Odds and Ends from the Past Week
I've decided to make this a recurring post, as I like to share pictures from time to time. Besides, it's been a crazy week, and I'm still busy writing.
Great news: I finally bought a webcam!
Bad news: my webcam seems incompatible with those terrific spreecasts by Seth Everett and Dr. Funkenberry. I've tried numerous times to get on the show, but I can't. I hope to get the issue resolved soon. If you can help, let me know!
I'm going to have to buy another "Purple Rain" DVD.
I'm not sure what happened here, but the discs will no longer play. The interviews on this 20th Anniversary set are useful to me.
Random note: I am obsessed with Prince's song "Blue Light" from the "Love Symbol" album.

Shout out to my blog readers and other members of #TeamPrince! So many of you have offered to help me in some way, whether it's providing research, copies of books or magazines, or giving words of encouragement. For example, this weekend, someone helped me track down Tyka Nelson's book. I hope to have it very soon.
