I would like to acknowledge and spotlight what the Prince Estate is doing over at Prince2Me.
I tried it out and this is my Prince2Me post (see the original in all its glory)
They limit you to 5 pieces, so each word or photo or gif (that image on the bottom right corner is a gif on my post on their page) counts as a piece, so you have to be short and sweet. I wanted to say “symbol of a generation” but then I could only have one other piece.
While limited, I appreciate the idea and the implementation. It’s fun to look though what other people from around the world have come up with. Before I tried it, I did not understand that it was a closed system, meaning you cannot add your own pieces; you have to choose from what they give you. It’s one way to keep user-generated content from getting out of control a la Jeremy Renner. Hey, if you want to post a super-creative unique remembrance/tribute to Prince, that’s what personal websites are for, amiright?
I discovered Prince.org, an independent fan-created site that is basically an old-school forum where people can talk amongst themselves as well as stay up-to-date on what’s going on in the Prince Universe. Guess what? There is a lot going on!
