Nothing Compares 2 Poo

Prior to becoming a Jehovah's Witness and subsequently an endless bore by refusing to play any of his dirty music, Prince was even more of an innovator than we ever imagined. Why is that, you ask? Just read the following exerpt from a recent e-mail interview:

Q: What do your fans not know about you?
A: There's a lot that fans don't know about me. People tend 2 project on2 U whatever they want 2 c.
Q: What are your thoughts on the music business with the advent of mobile and digital?
A: Music is a sound nrg wave that is best xperienced LIVE. Because eye play music, eye have a different perspective on how it should b delivered. That said, eye (am) not so sure a musician would have come up with the idea 2 sell music in the digital realm.

As it turns out, on top of writing gems like "Head", "Sexy Motherfucker", and "Dirty Mind", Prince anticipated the incredibly irritating writing style of 14-year-old girls on MySpace profiles. Genius, I tell you!

Where are you finding these little South Park icons? I love the Prince one.

I'm creating them with the South Park character generator! You should see the one I did of Craig. I can't remember the address of the site at the moment, but if you go to, the author of that site has them linked a couple of articles down the page. She's worth a read too, snarky like me, only with talent!

Between Prince and the fast food industry (drive thru, stuft taco, etc.) I weep for the state of spelling and grammar in America.
