For my birthday (7/20), the wonderful JP (like JT but a little different and better) took me to a concert...
Can you guess where the Purple Dorks were headed?
In keeping with the dork spirit, we arrived 7 minutes after the supposed start time which is way early in New York time and concert time so we waited.
Fortunately for me there's nothing I like more than waiting for a 5'2'' midget in heels, wearing one hoop earring and ribbons in his hair:
While waiting, we discovered that many colors go well with purple, like 'champagne':
He finally emerged out of a helicopter and heaps of dry ice:
Here's the best Singer, Dancer, Musician, Songwriter, Performer of our time:
Here's another shot of the best Singer, Dancer, Musician, Songwriter, Performer of our time:
Half way through the concert this bonding exchange took place:
A: This is easily one of the top three experiences of my life.
J: Concert experiences?
A: No, LIFE experiences.
There's really no other way for me to describe how happy I was.
Prince is Hot:
I felt so lucky to catch his one yawn of the evening. Look closer.
The paparazzi are hounding me for this shot:
I joke, but my non-ironic, extremely earnest and sincere feelings were that I was completely overwhelmed and awed by the wonder that is Prince. He embodies so much talent, it's no wonder he's a freak of nature. Also inspiring is that his art brings such a wide array of people, young and old, black, white and everything in between, gay, straight, dorks, thugs, music geeks together to just enjoy...
Important endnote: You'll notice that Prince's wardrobe, set design and props were very purple and red and you'll also notice that my dress was purple and my earrings and purse were red.
The Andrea + Prince connection is undeniable.
