Did anyone see Prince on SNL? Man, he’s such an underrated guitarist. Amazing it took until Purple Rain for people to realize he could play guitar. Like there was no guitar on Prince. Damn remedial critics need a friggin’ guitar solo to realize how talented someone is. Love it. It was cool seeing him on SNL, but I was less than impressed. What’s up with the lame sometimes-singers/dancers? I was ready for MC Hammer to come out! And I think he needs Sheila E. back on drums and/or perhaps some other’s from the NPG. Asking for the Revolution to come back would clearly be asking too much. (As much as we always hear of the rumors.) Anyways. I am looking forward to this record, but am a little skeptical after hearing the 2nd tune from SNL. His work has been on shaky ground for the past 10+ years, but as of late has become more consistent, so we’ll see.
In other news we stayed at my ‘rents house on Saturday night because our contractor was moving the water heater and the boiler to the garage so we’ll have more room in the Studio. Yay! It’s so nice relaxing all day at someone else’s house (not to mention your Parent’s) and not having to be anywhere or be confined to a schedule. Not to mention an abundance of free flowing Mandel Bread (our family recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate chips too) and Rice Krispie treats w/ M&Ms. Yum. And Frankie was great. We had no problems and she did well with the walks I continuously took her on. And we watched the Breakfast Club on CABLE TELEVISION! Oh and we also watched the Super Bowl. At least the first hour or so and we all rated the commercials, or rather my Father did and shortly provoked us to join in. He’s a funny guy! And my Father is beside himself because Bob got him tickets to see Maryland take on Duke. My Father is a huge Maryland fan (his alma mater) and it appeared that these tickets were pretty hard to come by, so needless to say, my Dad is happy.
PS. Happy 30th, Catherine. We have gifts for you!
