    No cats here, apart from a few wandering scrawny moggies around the campus, but I've been in a show for the last two weeks. :thumbsupdroid: William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream.

    BTW @LV426, I thought you guys might all be using e-ink screen music readers these days, especially something like Cats. No more turning pages and forgetting where you are. :D

    Now that's pretty damn useful, particularly as there are a couple of very nasty (i.e. impossible) page turns. Unfortunately Mr Lloyd Webber has stayed with the old school paper solution.

    I suppose it's difficult, sometimes impossible, to make a graceful descent from divine stardom to aging relic. God bless him.

    Well, I was never a star, and far from divine, but I do embody the term aging relic well.

    I looked on Spotify for Prince's music, but there are hardly any songs available. It seems he used a music streaming service called Tidal.

    He was one of the few artists who absolutely refused to let Weird Al Yankovic parody his music.

    ... so Al did one in his 'style': "Traffic Jam"

    His complete discography is available on QQ Music and Baidu Music, legally as well. Although that's probably down to blanket, record company licensing rather than his own divisions.

    Yeh that's the app I use. But like most legal music services it's geo-restricted by IP address of the country you're in. And for that it's China. Which I certainly noticed when I was in the UK a couple of months ago. Quite a few of my streaming media apps just didn't work, or gave messages about not being available in this country.

    I use Music Online Pro, which just allowed me to DL virtually everything he had available at will. But Purple Rain.. That was harder to find in the list. PM me for info if you can't find it.

    I don't think I have any Prince albums anymore... Had one or two on cassette decades ago. My life has continued quite well without.

    I'm pretty sure there's quite some Prince vinyl in our collection.
    Our national tv is broadcasting Sign o the times and Purple Rain this evening.

    I met him in the 80s!! [emoji854] very nice man... Super shy
    I only met him for like 5 minutes but It made an impression on me that he was a total gentleman polite and soft spoken very talented
    My friend stayed in touch with him through the years
    She's since passed
    His songs remind me of her

    Also:) since I'm rambling!! I tried brandy the other night.. I kind of liked it
    But it made feel sick...
    Although I could see sipping a glass and writing a novel:)
    Tastes kind of like butter
    Made out of scotch:)
    Plus I really think I've grown up a lot in the last couple years... Especially this year

    You may have grown up, but not enough to drink brandy.:rolleyes:

    Brandy is only for the super mature...

    And rappers :p
