    MSNBC is doing an hour special on Prince. Little odd that Bri-Wi is hosting, but …

      Watching it! Really I’m switching between MSNBC and BET and VH1 and MTV. My head is spinning.

        I’ve been switching, too! Watched part of Purple Rain on MTV, part of CNN’s coverage, part of MSNBC. Tried to move away, but keep getting drawn back.

        Every time I hear Purple Rain, I start swaying back and forth … but I can’t help myself. I really loved some of his music. These stories coming out about his behind-the-scenes generosity and caring are wonderful. What an inspiration in the middle of all the “stuff” we’ve been concentrating on, this idiotic political cycle. Makes me feel like I’m more grounded tonight (not to mention 30 years younger – Ha!).

        He’s still inspiring people around the world! I believe he’s watching all of it, smiling that smile of his – which you didn’t always see, but which was worth seeing when it showed up.

      Did you see this? (posted on previous thread.)

        GE, arapaho! I did see that and found it quite amusing! (Did you see the one comment, mentioning Wolf referred to Purple Haze earlier in the day? That guy’s got to go!) Actually, I found Bri-Wi’s coverage better than expected. Seems like he’s been a big fan, seemed to be speaking from the heart and with personal knowledge. I feared it would be some made-up story, tell you the truth, but Brian surprised me.

          Catch you tomorrow, JO’B.

          Prince was very influential in the 1980s — virtually every MSMer’s tweet from those in the 40-something range have sent lots of tweets about Prince.

    Back in 1993, the Joffrey Ballet created a rock ballet using Prince’s songs – it was called “Billboards” and it premiered right here in Iowa City (the Joffrey’s “second home”). I remember it being really an incredible experience, so I looked it up just now – it went on tour to some of the big cities for awhile at least (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billboards_(ballet)). Here’s a pretty good overview of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVpBgLc5gIo. RIP, Prince. 😦

    BET awards are on June 16 – the night we arrive for the TOD meetup.

    Twitter is blowing up w/ suggestions for artist tributes during awards show – and warnings that they better get it right. 😄

    NCIS executive producer Gary Glasberg tells TV Guide.com that FLOTUS scene is a lovely scene and she was fantastic. Never doubted our FLOTUS wouldn’t be fantastic. Can’t wait to see the show.

    GE/GM TODville.

    As a reminder, PBO and FLOTUS will be having lunch with #QueenAt90 in Windsor Castle just a few short hours from now.

    This article has some good photos of previous meetings between the Queen and Prince Philip and the First Couple.

    We’ve just watched the moon rise above the clouds on the horizon while the evening planes – looking like shooting stars are coming in to land from south & north. Amazing combination of nature and science – sometimes our world is just spectacular.
