Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist

Prince never mattered to me growing up, when he was at his prime. My only memories of him are hearing a song on the radio that my brother and I thought went, "Baby I'm black, come on back." Turns out it was Little Red Corvette. And I remember seeing a commercial on TV at my grandparents' house for a movie called Purple Rain. Based on the music in the commercial, I thought the only lyrics in the song were "purple rain, purple rain" over and over again.

In the summer of 1989, I was super in to Batman merchandise. This was, of course, the year the eponymous Tim Burton film came out. A friend of mine told me there was a song on the radio called Batdance. He heard it on his walkman, but by the time he got my attention and handed me the headphones, it had ended. So, later I went to the local Target and bought the Batman cassette (on sale for $6.99). That summer, I listened to it incessantly. From there, it was game on. Now I literally have hundreds to Prince CDs. I can't get enough.

My weekend was pretty sweet. A lot of hangout time, but also a lot of adventure.

Let me share it with you. )
