After a slight delay due to various personal crises, my sister and I finally got back together to record the second part of our podcast on Morris Day’s On Time: A Princely Life in Funk. If you liked the first episode and are okay with the occasional, affectionate laugh at Prince’s expense, I think you’ll enjoy this one. Otherwise, I plan to be back next week with another installment of my ongoing Apollonia 6 reappraisal!
Hey, everyone! I’m still working on “Take Me with U,” which I’m afraid is not quite ready for prime time yet. So, I thought I’d share another thing I’ve been working on instead. It’s been a while since I cross-posted one of the podcast episodes I do with my sister as Dystopian Dance Party, mostly because it’s been a while since we’ve done anything Prince-related; but this month, our spinoff podcast about (mostly) rock biographies is taking on Morris Day’s On Time: A Princely Life in Funk. Please be aware that this side project is what I actually do for fun, so it’s a lot less polished and “serious” than what I do here; it’s also a good deal more irreverent. In other words, it isn’t for everyone, and I’m okay with that. But if you’re truly starved for some Zach Content (TM), this should hopefully tide you over for a few more days. Thanks for your patience, and for real, I’ll see you soon.
As I’ve alluded a few times recently, the last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic in my neck of the woods; but I still had to make the time to participate in this month’s #PrinceTwitterThread series on 1995’s The Gold Experience. I know I remain, somewhat unfashionably, an ’80s Prince guy, but The Gold Experience is one of my faves from the ’90s and “Endorphinmachine” is an absolute banger. Check out the thread below, and be sure to also make your voice heard on the poll I posted pitting the raw original mix against the clunktastic album version. Also, stay tuned to @PrinceThread on Twitter; the series just got started, and is going all the way through the Record Store Day release of The Gold Experience on Saturday the 18th!
