    This is what Prince spends his time on instead of remastering his first fifteen years' worth of material? We're waiting on decent sounding Prince, Time, Vanity and Appolonia albums. Like Trent Reznor said about Prince and River Cuomo, we're sure frequently reminded of the hundreds of unreleased songs in the vaults, but what we get for new releases are subpar.

    Why the heck is Prince using all that production on his vocals? I thought he was above that stuff...

    He's always been an artist of the trends, even back when he was setting them. Doesn't anybody remember his big puffy thug look in the 90s?

    Does David Draiman write songtitles for Prince now?

    I never have and never will understand why caps lock is so revered by the internet world. I mean, I understand that it can imply yelling, but some people get seriously offended over capital letters, and it makes no sense to me.

    There are, even in 2014, still a lot of people who write in all caps because they want to be noticed, or imagine it gives whatever they write more weight (no, I'm not joking, though I wish I was). It's unnessecary it reminds most people of the countless threads they've seen were someone jumps in writing in ALL CAPS SO THAT EVERYONE WILL NOTICE THEIR OPINION.
