local homeboy makes good –¬†prince won outstanding male performer at the 36th annual naacp awards (of course, they also gave isiah washington best male actor – not sure how they can support such a homophobic pig, but at least they got prince right) last weekend.

here’s a killer clip (part 2 of a longer jam session) of him, sheila e, morris day and jerome benton performing a medley – the highpoint would be shelia’s bit in the middle.¬† ray, this one’s for you:

no big secret, i loves me some skinny mother fucker with the high voice. yes, it’s a bittersweet love – i mean the man’s a fuckin’ genius, but sometimes he’s a lame-ass fuck that is mearly resting on his laurels.

well shit if this didn’t remind me how much i love it when the man just simply plays – for the love of the guitar! the above video is from prince’s 2004 induction into the rock and roll hall of fame. if you don’t know, at the end of the induction ceremony, the recently inducted members do a “jam session” – the video is princes solo during the george harrison tune “while my guitar gently weeps”.

i love this.
