It was just last week that Morgan and I walked into a  Caribou Coffee  in St. Paul.  The trivia question was "Where is Paisley Park?"  I was able to correctly answer Chanhassen.  He had just given a concert the night before and one of the Baristas had been there.

So today's  news of his death took  me by surprise.

I don't have much to say about him really.  His music was part of the environment I grew up in, but I never quite fancied  it.

The juxtaposition of that trivia question and the news of his death is sort of a memento mori, I guess.  It strikes close to home when you share a metro area with someone that high profile.

His talent was undeniable ^v^ .. I did really just like the Corvette song mostly... Passed on way too young... -_-

Happy Birthday, sir!

Yes indeed; I lived in the little town of Camarillo, California — and I remember when the movie Titanic came out accompanied by endless special TV features and documentaries.

So when one local boy went to church there, whole streets were shut down from people crowding in to have a look at Leonardo DiCaprio.

He no longer attends, to the relief of the church and many locals at least.

By the way, are you tracking on Israel's negotiations with Russia? As with Egypt, Putin is making a bid to replace the US as ally and aid source.

It worked with Egypt, and I understand that Netanyahu is receptive.
