I find it curious that he was reading/read a book about Osama bin Laden, he never professed to have much interest in politics, didn't vote, never commented on 9/11... Just seems a curious choice and like it really sticks out among all the other titles

I don't know, I think he kind of did, through the music:

  • Ronnie talk to Russia before its too late Before it's too late Before it's too late Ronnie talk to Russia before it’s too late Before they blow up the world
  • How you gonna make me kill somebody I don’t even know... You're gonna have to fight your own damn war 'Cause we don't wanna fight no more
  • Does anybody hear us pray For Michael Brown or Freddie Gray? Peace is more than the absence of war
  • A sister killed her baby 'cause she couldn't afford to feed it and yet we're sending people to the moon
  • I was born and raised on the same plantation In the united states of the red, white and blue I never knew that I was different Till Dr. King was on the balcony lying in a bloody pool
  • It's time for new education the former rules don't apply we need a power structure that breeds productionInstead of jacks who vandalize
  • Upload: a 2-party system The lesser of 2 dangers Illusion of choice Download: a veiled form of fascism Nothing really ever changes U never had a voice
  • Everybody’s got a bomb. We could all die any day.
  • Tax dollars build a plane drop a bomb
    Supposedly to keep us all safe from Saddam

Awesome...he was definitely interested in politics and admitted to watching news all the time

  • Section one, the fourteenth Amendment says:

    Without due process of law
  • Ain't no point in voting. Same song with a different name

Obviously the latter is the most true statement biggrin

I totally agree about the 2 party system. Interesting quote from a Gemini. lol Still it's very weird to see the word fascism on a Prince poster.

As far as voting, no. Where we are in the US right now is from people not voting. The perfect IS the enemy of the good.

Thanks for the Rebecca update, I'll add it next time I'll update the list, smile



About the Twilight Zone, I'm guessing it's the series -not the 1983 movie based on the series- because the dvd has an "8" on it. But the entire collection can't be seen anywhere - the Soul Train collection has its box, though.



Remember also he referenced the series in 2015, "...if he doesn’t like a question, he strikes up with the theme from The Twilight Zone and shakes his head."

Ok, I was getting ready to be all snobby and judgmental about Rain by VC Andrews; but after further research, the story does sound kind of interesting.... but still VC Andrews? Could it possibly be something of Mayte's that he forgot to burn? (sorry, i couldn't stop myself)


I appreciate the sarcasm there. One could also ask if it was left by any number of his (young) lady friends. Haha

Nicely eclectic movie tastes. But his book choices look depressingly iffy. They're wacky, underground bunker, conspiracy, maniacal drawing books. Stuff that would definitely NOT get a man laid.

Sorry, you're wrong. You would be surprised how many sexual people are into "wacky, conspiracy, underground bunker" stuff. Not to mention, that Prince could sit and count to 20 and recite the alphabet and somebody would want to sex him; afro, socks with flip-flops, eyeliner and all

I have neither the time nor inclination to untangle your sloppy response. What I do know, though, is that you completely pulled it out your ass.

I guess the OP lost interest in this? sad I haven't looked at this tbread for weeks, but I see that none of the updates I offered were added to the list.

A few batshit crazy woo books there, disappointingly.

But not surprisingly. What did -pleasantly!- surprise me is to see a few items from my other musical hero Dylan in there.

Not surprised to see Jimi. His music selection is similar to mine since I grew up in the 60s, 70's and 80's. I did however saw some movies I will definitely check out. And Soul Train, I can do that 24/7.

i heard one of the most obvious things was a vhs of elvis' 68 special, i always claimed that he was a huge elvis fan although most people couldn't see it.


P was a musician and a performer. Of course he would've appreciated Elvis.

I dont like Elvis that much but even I have greatest Hits CD's and Live performances, for musical educational purposes. wink
.

He covered Elvis songs over the years so he had some sort of influence on him.
