I need to know by tomorrow night. Thanks.
I'll delineate more under the fold, but in brief: Who were the world-opening figures in music (or arts generally) that got into the ears, hearts and minds of the kids born ~1985 and there after? [more inside]
There was a video I loved on YouTube that featured Prince's I would die 4 u song, but was made up of clips from Final Fantasy. I loved it, was telling a coworker about it, and now I can't find it. Looking for leads... HOPE ME!
Some time ago - it was several years ago - I read an article online about Prince. It was a piece written by a person (a man, I'm pretty sure) who - I think - was trying to make a film or documentary about him. [more inside]
In 1984's "Purple Rain," Prince famously tells Apollonia to purify herself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka. They're standing by a lake, so she jumps in, and only then does he tell her "That ain't Lake Minnetonka." I believe it's not--I'm a native Twin Citian and Lake Minnetonka is huge and ritzy. But my question is: What lake IS it? Another Twin Cities lake? Something in L.A.? A soundstage pool? (Unlikely!) Does anyone have the definitive answer. You can watch the scene here, NSFW because she's topless.
A Prince-loving vegan travels to Minneapolis with a CPAP machine. Then some joke of some kind occurs.

I'm looking for a place to hold a company picnic roughly midway between Baltimore city and Prince George's County. We're looking for a park or other outdoor space that could accommodate around 100 people and permits the serving of alcohol. Grills would be a bonus (although realistically we'll probably end up renting them), and we definitely need space for a moon bounce! Our tentative date is August 7th. Ideas? Thanks!
This post made me dig out my Prince cd. And it made me remember how awesome Prince and specifically songs like Darling Nikki make me feel. Mostly like a superhero warrior goddess. I'm looking for more sexy music that makes me feel like this. So what are some songs that make you feel like the most kick ass person in the world? I want that really sexy feel. [more inside]

I have increasingly been asked to manage small projects and teams and would like to know if becoming Prince2 certified will have a positive impact on my career that justifies the initial investment of time & money. [more inside]

Major news outlets agreed to keep Prince Harry's deployment to Afghanistan secret for security reasons; Dick Cheney's hunting accident was kept from the media for at least a day... What are other examples of these government & media secret/blackout practices?

In this day and age, why do England and other democracies continue with this whole monarchy thing? Seems a rather costly form of national pride. [more inside]
On the heels of his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I've been thinking about Prince again. I flirted with his music in college, but his discography has gotten so out of control that I don't even know where to start. Did he ever write/perform a better song than Little Red Corvette? Are there gems on his epic 3-disc albums? If you were going to make an all-Prince compilation disc, what would you be sure to include?
I was switching stations in Dallas the other day and came across one of the most magnificent pieces of music--where can I hear more? [more inside] [more inside]
