You look like you could use some festing

Don’t forget about all the festivals happening this weekend. Many of them are Earth Day-related. The other ones are Shakespeare and dance-related. All will be fun times.

We have to content ourselves with what Prince has already done. There will never be another this, although thank heaven recording apparati exist, know what I mean? Warning, the genius of this will make you feel ill. Get to practicing, guitarists!
