Very short post today, as my brain is fried and this sense of being overwhelmed just won’t quit. I’ve been reading a lot of things lately in the sex bloggosphere that make me shake my head in disgust. It’s adding to my writers block because I just don’t know what to say. Validating a ridiculous assertation or argument with a rebuttal seems pointless. So I’ll remind you all of this one point to keep in mind:


There are always two (or even three) sides to every story.  If all you’re hearing is one side, one negative side, then perhaps you should step back before you jump on bandwagons and consider how many grains of truth lie in this one side. Jealousy, pettiness, anger, hurt, etc have ways of inflating drama and making half-truths feel real to the listener of tales of woe, betrayal or dismissal and vacuum-cleaner-salesman tales of caution, injury and how your life is miserable relying on product A when what you really need is product B.


At any rate, if you listen to people who are full of hot air, you’ll just end up confused. I know I am, after reading this interview with Prince wherein he proclaims that the Internet is a has-been:

He says: “The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.

“The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good.

“They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”

Thank you, Prince, I see the light now. Your music is awesome but you’re a strange little bird.

Here’s some “numbers” for you, dear readers, enjoy:

    It’s sad how many people jump on story A instead of finding out story B and realizing that truth C falls somewhere in between. I’ve been sucked into that frame of mind, too, when I’ve had a friend tell me A that I thought I could trust and rallied around her because of it, only to finally hear side B and realize that my friend had exaggerated many of the facts.
    As for Prince, he sounds like a grumpy old man! “That technology is the devil!” Poor Prince must just be mad that there are other artists who have taken his “pushing the envelope” schtick.
    Thank you so much for the happy ending to the post! :-D

    In order to make an informed decision for yourself, you have to research ALL sides. That goes for everything. If it’s going to effect your life in any way, you’d better know as much as you possibly can. Of course, there are always compelling arguments for pros and cons but only YOU will know what is best for you. Being a sheep or wanting to be on a perceived “cool” side won’t help you make a good choice for yourself.

    (I don’t mean you,specifically!)

    Prince has always had some very strange (and wrong) ideas about how the music business works.

    It seems his opinion of the net is the same as the idiot and chief who of course said there was just way too much information and poeple got news too fast.

    Idiots both.

    Prince being a “strange bird” would clearly be an understatement, but I do love me some him!!

    Utterly incomprehensible opinions often spring from the lips of people touched with genius. Blather on, Prince, but just keep making the music. The world would be more boring without you.

    Not to mention, I’d lose Brenda for a solid week or two if the fates ever arranged to put her within his presence :)
