Ah, the purple one.  His royal badness!  His very existence reminds of a time when Right On Magazine really was RIGHT ON, dammit!

When there were comedians with the kewl names like:


or Flip,



or Smiley!

Oh, and JET magazine!

And the JET magazine centerfolds!  YEAH, BABY!

Where everybody had an AFRO!  Even I had an AFRO, or a rather small "bush!"

And when you put your ear up to Prince, you can hear the funky sounds of James Brown, and GEORGE CLINTON! 

I got the Placebo Syndrome from George!

And I was definitely part of the nation that was UNDER A GROOVE, getting down just for the funk of it!

And I definitely got an education from the genius Darius James and his most amazing tome NEGROPHOBIA!  Oh, yes!  That's a lip smackin', tantalizingly rude, and surreal little book! 

One almost feels the depth of it's marvelous depravity in practically every song that Prince does.   Sure, Prince can be philosophical, but he's known for his frank dirtiness that is somehow matter-of-fact!  Like his songs "Dirty Mind,"  "Head," "Darling Nikki," and his filth masterpiece, "Jack U Off!"

What would my world be like without Prince?  A man that actually thought it was an alright idea to originally dub Vanity, Vagina?  Oh, and don't forget "Sugar Walls," an ode to Sheena Easton's vagina! 

Again, I don't even wanna think about it!
