Purple Rainout

Hi All!

Darn it.

You have to admit that the half-time show went as well as it could in the monsoon, but it was probably 50% of what would have been.

Worst part of all was an apparent guitar malfunction at the end. Seemed like the pickup dropped off (there was an audible thump) and the solo at the end was barely audible -- and, I think -- cut short, after which Prince seemed to have hurled his guitar at a roadie in disgust.

But that's a live-blog for ya -- guess the tape will need to be reviewed. Fascinating song choices in between the start and finish -- the guy don't play it predictable or safe!

Commercials dreadful except, so far, the Blockbuster ad with the mouse, the video game where the bad guy turns nice for Coke, the check-out lane romance involving various flavors of Dorittos and Catie and Laura's sentimental favorite -- the dog that gets to ride on the fire engine in the parade after the world treated him like a fire hydrant.

Back to the game, which is actually quite entertaining!

I thought the same thing...guitar solo sounded distorted, then for the last few bars he was strumming but I heard no electric guitar -- and then the throw.

Glad I wasn't the only one to notice.

I just read this on another blog regarding Prince's pornography stunt:

Don't CBS or NFL learn to really check out the halftime acts? Prince is a freak from way back in the '80s. Knowing kids are watching, what the hell was that phallic shadow dance that creep was doing with the guitar and the yellow curtain...just plain bad. The whole thing sucked overall also. Shame.
