Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to bring you...
Part One of our Prince Podcast (AKA "The Princecast)
In this purple episode, Big Money is joined by the team of Mike Duquette, Zack (Dr. Gonzo) Stiegler and Michael Parr, in addition to welcoming recent Popblerd recruit Michael Cunningham (AKA "ThePacketMan") We're all huge Prince fans, and we yapped so much about the Purple Yoda that we had to split the podcast into two parts.
In Part One:
-"New Prince" and 3rd Eye Girl: How does Prince appeal to the kids in an age of Skrillex and Britney Spears? Will he ever have another pop hit?
-What's the story with the 22 year old manager Prince found on...MySpace? Can he really be managed to someone who wasn't born until "0----|--->" came out?
-Zack tries (in vain) to defend "Lotusfl0w3r."
-What is Prince's worst studio album?
-Prince acolytes: Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5. If they can break through, why can't the originator?
-Please please please let us get Prince remasters (but if you're tired of waiting, there's always DJ Foefur's bootleg remasters. Go Look 'em up on YouTube)
-What's Tony M. doing these days, and can he do it in 30 minutes or less?
-The "Ultimate Prince" fiasco and this awesome Popmatters article.
-Good Prince vs. Bad Prince: the Purple Piano/Sampler
-Larry Graham's influence on Prince and what caused Prince to fall under his spell.
Stay tuned for Part II, coming in about a week (quite possibly on Prince's birthday, June 7th.)
