#PurpleAvengers, "come out and plaaaaaaay!"

So what does this soundbite from the 1979 film "The Warriors" have to do with #Prince and ##DMSR? You'll see...

Let's play "7 Degrees of Separation: The Prince D.M.S.R. Edition!
#PrinceTwitterThread #1999THREAD
The fifth song from Prince’s 1999 album, D.M.S.R., is as much about content as it is about connections and branches on the R&B/ Hip-Hop music family tree. It can be explained in a game I play when I listen to my playlists.
It’s called 7 Degrees of Separation: The Prince Edition. It’s like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, but with more context, and tons of music history. And it’s about Prince - what else do you need, right?

Was this #dogwalker a #whitewoman by any chance?

Because for the life of me, I do not get how all can ignore what happened to #myson #AmbroseGGBall in 8 solid years unless it was @MPSHaringey posting up all the wrong information, wrong days and dates,
the wrong locations, wrong description of clothing , the wrong Fox pub, all different times of the night, leaving out the vital information leading up to during and after my son went @missingpeople, did not response for 56 hours after all the calls myself and others had made over

Good morning! Will Milliken here. I’m a director in Sterne Kessler’s Trial and Appeals Group. I’ll be live-tweeting today’s #SCOTUS argument in Andy #Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts v. Goldsmith.

The #Warhol case concerns the scope of the “fair use” defense to copyright infringement, and, specifically, whether Andy Warhol’s “Orange Prince” work is a fair use of the Lynn Goldsmith photograph on which it was based. 2/ Image

Went on a fun journey this afternoon! @SlingshotAnnie shared this flyer she found while researching her next book on Cornbread Harris (Jimmy Jam's father). Note the name of the theatre located in St. Paul, Minnesota!

And check out that program list! 🖤
This of course sent me down a rabbit hole to find out more about the theatre! Here's a Star Tribune feature from October 5, 1989. Founder Merline Doty noted "the company has a greater purpose to combat racial and ethnic stereotypes through the performing arts." It was 3 p.m. The tiny foyer of Rainbo Children's Theatre Co
As for the date of the flyer, thinking it's circa 1986. I looked for years when February 10th fell on a Monday and found this ad in a 1986 Star Tribune newspaper.

Oh baby, baby, baby
Don't my kisses please you right?”

That One Time #Prince Attempted To Run #MichaelJackson Over With His Car...

(BET) — “The rivalry between Prince and Michael Jackson has long been a poignant aspect of their legacies even after their deaths.”….
As legend would have it, and the footage from that night would prove, the superstar face-off was triumphant for Michael Jackson and a rare humiliation for Prince.

But, what most aren't familiar with is what occurred after the fanfare.

So it WAS an official figure! Go...figure! 😅💜. Hop on this one y'all! It's been available via cons for a while now for the casuals who collect things like this not limited to #Prince!…
Closer look in this preview video from this past July!

Gotta say though, kinda sucks it isn't available through Sideshow. Benefit there is that they have a mechanism where you can pay for something like this over time.

A recap/critique of the @PaisleyPark listening party for #Prince’s Welcome 2 America record this past weekend.
At the last minute – and I mean that almost literally – I decided to attend the listening party at Paisley Park for Prince’s new album, Welcome 2 America.
For a proper review of the event, check out Nisi post. She, as always, covers the ground extremely well and with open-mindedness, but never without productive criticism when it’s called for.

And it’s called for here, which is where I come in.…

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC
- Qatar say "No Way"

Today marks 5 years since #Prince passed away.

Here are some major singles from his storied career, via @mikaelwood:…
“Raspberry Beret” (1985)

The image is easy to grasp: a beautiful woman wearing a fancy hat (and, when it was warm, not much more). But the music, with strings and harpsichord over a clip-clop beat, defies classification even now.… Image
“I Wanna Be Your Lover” (1979)

Prince’s first brush with greatness, which grew out of his crush on Patrice Rushen, is an ecstatic post-disco classic whose radio-ready hooks deliver a characteristically risky proposition.… Image

Welcome to another #PrinceTwitterThread series, curated by @DeejayUmb and @EdgarKruize
Everyday is a thread by a Prince superfan on a specific song, this time covering the Sign O The Times DELUXE release. My thread offering is on funk dance anthem “Housequake”.
You will need to have listened to the song first to fully experience this take, so here you go:
...and already, I have suckered you.

That is the 1987 version, the version you know and grew up with. I hope you enjoyed it because you can now promptly throw that version in the trash.

London, 1990. I have just arrived at a dinner in a newly opened Soho restaurant with people I barely know. I see a long table rammed with the deafening confidence of entitled rich young things.

I am honored to be in the company of some excellent thinkers creating Twitter threads on #Prince’s "Come" album. Today, we’ll explore the title track. #PrinceTwitterThread
First, let’s talk about the music. It’s a jazzy, horn-soaked R&B song of epic proportions by a man who was preoccupied with epic poetry: Homer’s “The Odyssey” and the Bible’s “Song of Songs.”

I love all 11 minutes of the album version.
