"I'll Take U 2 A Movie Show" - Current Research

Look what came in the mail today!

I have never seen Prince's Sign O' The Times concert film from 1987. I've heard great things, so I am extremely excited to watch it in the next couple weeks as I write chapter seven! I bought it on VHS because the DVD versions on Amazon.com looked unreliable. Luckily, I have a dual VCR and DVD player.

However, before I watch Sign O' The Times, I need to re-watch Under the Cherry Moon (1986).

I was supposed to watch it over a year ago, but I never did. It's not my favorite film; I prefer Purple Rain and Graffiti Bridge. Maybe I will appreciate it more when I watch it this time around.

I also got a new copy of the soundtrack, Parade, in the mail on Monday. I love this album!

What did you think of the Sign O' The Times concert film?

"You're Writing a Bio About Me?" - Chapter Six is Finished!

These three months have flown by! The good news is that I have been busy writing and requesting interviews. Since my last blog post, I have finished chapter five and chapter six!

Here is a shot of my work area:

As you can see, I was studying the Around the World in a Day album. I will be writing about the Parade and Sign O' the Times eras for chapter seven.

I'm also excited to announce that I've lined up another interview! I will have a summary for you next month (if everything goes well, of course). My last interview was last fall, so I am ready!

What is your favorite track from Around the World in a Day?
