End-of-Year 2016 is approaching...

What are you expecting as far as TV shows, write-ups and other media recollections and coverage of Prince? Anything?
What are you hoping to see?

Barbara Walters "Most Fascinating People", maybe?
Cover issues?
Other ways he'll be honored this year-end?

I'm hoping to see this was all a very bad dream or the worst hoax ever. Anything other than that, I really just won't fucking care. shrug

I'm hoping all the news avencies forgo the tradition of showing a montage of the year that was this time round for fear of unleashing a pandemic of depression.

Fuck you 2016. Suck a fat one.

Unless you're a fan of Leicester, the Cubs or far right "values" in which case, enjoy.

Being happy the Cubs curse is broken doesn't come close to making up for this year's losses. I'll be glad when it's over. if I could trade out the Cubs win for Prince alive and well, or getting better, I'd do it in a heartbeat .

Hoping to see, but most of all hear a great re-release of Purple Rain.

🙂 That would be nice. Aside from the media honoring him it would be nice if the Estate did something special for us to end this very difficult year on a nice note 🎶
They have given us a lot, and I know they're working hard.

Talking of hoax, I was thinking today when I had a quiet moment that what if Prince faked his death and he was spotted somewhere? And then he had to come out of hiding and admit it and do a press conference. After the reaction to his death and all the people that cried ( including myself) How would people react?..would they hate him? It would be the cruelest hoax. I know he didn't , it was just a crazy thought. I'd be glad he's still alive.
Baby, you're a star.

Meet me in another world, space and joy

There's a Jean Claude Van Damme movie where special agents and spies are "killed" but really sent to a secret island to fight world crime as a think tank. They're not allowed to contact anyone they knew before, and aren't allowed to leave.

Imagine a private island for entertainers to escape the limelight and just relax for the rest of their lives?

The Kennedy Center Honors are held every December. I am going to miss seeing Prince honored. Was he ever approached? Did he turn them down? The Presidential Medals of Freedom were given out yesterday. Why didn't Prince ever get one? He can receive one posthumously but the point is these things should have happened while he was alive. I am going to miss him growing old and sharing with the world for years to come.

I would be over joyed if he was still alive. I wouldn't be mad at all, because we would have our Prince back!

Morningstarlet and 1Sasha, me too.
Maybe the new year will be a bit easier. Although then we'll have all the anniversaries.
I wonder what it is going to be like going forward. All of us healing together.

It'll be interesting to see if Turner Classic Movies includes him in TCM Remembers for 2016. He didn't make many movies of his own, but he contributed a lot of music and has an Oscar, so...

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

I had this tought too and asked myself the same question. I can say for myself that I would be soo happy to see him well and alive that I wouldn´t be mad for even a second. I would only be relieved.

I don't think anyone would believe him! He'd have to go into the studio to record a new album and folks would say,"Nah, this doesn't sound like the Prince we know..."
There's even a book called Er ist wieder da/ He's back again, which is about Adolf Hitler waking up after a long coma in the modern world and nobody believes it's him. I haven't read it yet, but it's surely a cool idea for a story...

It's been a tough year. I can only hope 2017 is better. However, it won't be the same without Prince.
