Happy Belated Birthday Prince Rodgers Nelson

Who else but Prince could have ordered it to rain during the half time show of Super Bowl XLI? First it wasn’t raining, then he started playing and it began to rain which was lit purple during the performance of “Purple Rain”.

I just wanted to give a shout out to his royal badness and say Happy Belated Birthday. Is there any chance you have a favorite Prince song or do you not care at all for his music? I already know Melinda from Finding The Humor is a card carrying, poster hanging fan!

Wordle

Wordle: Purple Rain Lyrics Wordle: ME Blog Wordle: Blogroll Wordle: Movie Greats

These were created with a unique ‘toy’ that generates word clouds. The first one is the lyrics to Purple Rain. The second is the About Morning Erection page. The third is the Blogroll page and the fourth one is a collection of some of the movies I have on DVD.

I came across Wordle a couple of days ago and have since created about thirty of them. I found one that had already been made on Facebook of the Declaration of Independence but I just thought it was something a graphic artist had made.

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat “King” Cole, was an American musician who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. Although an accomplished pianist, he owes most of his popular musical fame to his soft baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres. He was one of the first black Americans to host a television variety show, and has maintained worldwide popularity since his death; he is widely considered one of the most important musical personalities in United States history.
