Why did it take me this long to write a column about Prince?

Those who have known me for some time know that I’ve been an aficionado of Prince’s music for some time. Not so much the small gentleman in question, who might just be one (or more) purple doves short of a flock. Surprisingly, while I’ve made passing mention of this from time to time here and there, I don’t recall writing an entire Prince themed column. Until now.

Mac Authority: The Next iPhone Will Be… “The iPhone 4G will suddenly sprout wings and fly around the house, dropping freshly peeled grapes into your lap while Aerosmith’s “Love In An Elevator” plays…”

Getting funky like a monkey…

Why do Monkeys have the monopoly on funk? Why not funky like a hippo? They’ve got the hips for it, after all…

Anyway, speaking of “Da Funk”, I’ve got references to the Prince of Funk in my latest news story, live today at APCMag.com. Along with some very nasty jokes that only fans of said Prince will get (along with my brother, who would have written the same thing, I suspect.)

Azureus is dead, long live Vuze? “Azureus has gone the same way as Napster and Kazaa… though this time the RIAA wasn’t involved; Azureus’ makers pulled the plug themselves…”
