Prince: June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The after world
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night
– Prince

A Minnesota legend – These lyrics were my introduction to an imaginative master. His music touched so many moments in my life. My heart is a bit heavy. Thank you for your gift.

I’m not sure what I watched last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Strangely enough, I get it. Think Slayer meets J-Pop. Headbangers, deal with it and enjoy!

Farewell Old Friend

A Minneapolis institution  played its final request this past weekend. Since 1950, Nye’s Polonaise was one of those beloved establishments that shaped the character of Minneapolis. I spent many a night at Nye’s with friends as we discussed the important issues of the day over good food, drinks and song.

Farewell old friend – Legends never die.
