    So... here's a little story.

    Back in 2007 I got married, amazing to think next year will be 10 years.

    We got married in Finland and our honeymoon consisted of us travelling to Sweden, London, Toronto, Los Angeles and the back to Brisbane, where we were living at the time.

    Price was doing a long stint at the London O2 arena and we contemplated going. Problem was that only the expensive tickets were left and we weren't exactly in a position to spend that kind of money.

    My wife is a big fan of Prince and I promised her that the minute he came back to London and we could get tickets we'll go see him. He was coming here with his Microphone and Piano tour and I was going to get tickets one way or another.

    As this year has been a bad year for music stars dying she's been worried about possibly never seeing Prince as something 'might' happen. I've always assured her that he was in good health and looked in good shape for his age. But of course, that means nothing...

    So we missed our chance and I know my wife is pretty upset about this.

    What annoys me about this particular situation is that it would appear that he was partially to blame for his demise. He was pretty sick and should have been in the hospital. Instead, he was doing gigs and throwing parties, from the accounts I've read so far.

    To make matters worse no one at his house when he collapsed seemed to have any clue about first aid or information about where he lived. Which is just brilliant when you're on the phone to 911...

    I'm not one to really care too deeply about music artists and actors but I know that my wife really liked Price so this is going to be hard for her. The question she keeps asking is why all the good ones seem to die young. There is no answer to this question but I often look at it from this perspective, it may simply be they burn brightly for a while and then just burn out.

    RIP Prince.

    I might consider it but we'll see. If I had another phone to use I would definitely do this.

    i will have to upload the 2 pictures using the app :P but here are the pictures i took
    I heard that those electric cars, such as Tesla, will have to add some kind of external speakers and play gas powered engine sounds. They make no noise and apparently it represented danger for others on the road, since they can't here them. I think this was the case in California, if it's even a real thing.

    never seen a tesla?! whoa I'm surprised. with all the news tesla and Elon Musk are getting, I thought tesla's are everywhere. I see them frequently
    They're slowly coming here too, not as fast as I'd like. But there are more of them in Croatia, they're even giving them away in huge malls.

    I wish they'd stop referring to Prince as only a 'singer'. The guy was a musician, and artist. He played pretty much every instrument going. He was also a producer and writer.

    It's insulting to be considered just a 'singer'. He was not just a singer.

    Yeah he was pretty good with a guitar. But he was so much more than that.

    Morning crew..

    Rue, my GF and I always talk about stuff like that, especially when a classic band/singer or artist comes through on tour.. She always says "we really need to go see them/him/her... You never know when this might be their last tour, or this might be our last chance to see them..."

    Unfortunately the last hire decided to stick it out so the Coyote needs to wait it's turn, doesn't matter how 'wily' he might be!
    Maybe the new hire needs to go to the ACME school to keep the coyote away...

    Yeah I've had many of those conversations as well. The things you talk about as you and your favourite bands get older...

    Sahib, nice pics!

    That sign should read: Fastest production model sedan (from the factory) though... as I've seen plenty of slightly modified sedans (4-doors) do the 1/4 mile in under 10 seconds. ;)

    The L920 is not a replacement for my Z3 in any way whatsoever.... :P

    If I had some decent mid tier Android than maybe. But I'm not up for spending money on a phone at this moment in time.
