February 6, 2017 Last night I dreamed of Prince again. It wasn’t an elaborate dream like the spaceship, just Prince hanging out with me. We were lying on the couch listening to music. It was soft jazz music, I think. I was lying almost on top of Prince and he had his arm was wrappedContinue reading “The Dye Job (Prince Dream #3)”

Thank you, Prince, for the half-century of music, boldness, style, craftsmanship, and a side-eye that melts titanium.
Hey Y’all, We lost Charlie Murphy today. Leukemia. He left a legacy of unfettered humor, candid acting, and brilliant insight into real shit. His greatest gifts are the phrase “habitual line-stepper” and one of the best Prince stories on the planet. Rest In Power Charlie. But it is interesting that Prince transitioned on April 21, 2016,Continue reading “Basketball and Pancakes”
Hey Y’all, Here is a link to the story, When Prince was My Girlfriend, I told at Spillit: Lost & Found on July 8, 2016, at Amurica.
