Is he back to Prince or is he still using that ridiculous symbol? Because I bet that symbol guy uses a cell phone.

Re: Prince admits he doesn't own a cell phone

Anyone else heard Kevin Smith's Prince story?

Prince not having a cell phone isn't surprising.

So what you're saying is you're superior to me because you DO listen to them. Gotcha.

No, he's saying that he realizes he's inferior to everyone generally and naming obscure bands gives him an inflated sense of self-worth so he can pretend he's better than random people he's never met behind the protection of a screen and a keyboard.

Well they are pretty obscure. Beatles, Beach Boys, Ozzy? Sound like some indie garage rock bands.

Maybe if they marketed it as an phone he might be interested.

None of the bands I listed are obscure. Gaelic Storm is one of the most popular celtic bands. They were in the party scene in Titanic....just for an example.

What are you talking about ? I went through my iTunes and picked out just a few of my favourites. I've been listening to most of the ones that I listed since I was a kid.

Shouldn't you be going to hell for listening to Ozzy?

As for lashing out, there was no reason for you to be rude about Prince just because he may not be your cup of tea.

So you don't like 80's music? Looking at your list you may not want to point fingers at what you consider to be dated music.

And I didn't know that there was a band named after Coors beer.
How do you feel about The Corrs?

Dude, that's his MO.

Steps:

1. Enter thread.
2. Post trollish reply
3. Assume martyr role when rightfully called out for it
4. ...
5. PROFIT?

I'm on his list.

And, I think it'd be cool if Prince really didn't have a mobile phone. However, I got a feeling he's got people that have them.

I love 80s music most of all. The great bands I mentioned are just from the songs I have on my computer. Who was talking about dated music ? I never mentioned any dated music.

I am not a troll. I've never trolled in my life. You're only saying that I'm a troll because you don't like what I have to say. I don't assume a martyr role. And when am I rightfully called out for....anything ? THAT sounds like a trollish remark, to me.

Yeah you're right. This is a list of well known bands. I don't even think Pitchfork hipsters would know who these groups are.

Re: Prince admits he doesn't own a cell phone

Yeah, they ARE well known bands...if you know about music...
Gaelic Storm - one of the most popular celtic/Irish/Scottish bands
Jolly Rogers - one of the greatest renaissance bands there are
Tartanic - another one of the greatest renaissance bands there are
Natalie MacMaster - perhaps the single greatest female celtic artist
Three Pints Gone - one of the greatest pub bands around
K-ON - guess you're not an anime fan if you don't know this show
King Pleasure - not a fan of classic crooner music ?
Runner Runner - okay. I'll give you this one
Stars Go Dim - really never heard of this one ?
Gary Hoey - do you listen to music at all ?

The Wilkinsons - one of the greatest family country acts of the early 2000s ?
The Odds/Craig Northey - how could you not have heard of them ?
