Daily Arts Editors
Either you forgot, tried too hard or
went down in flames. Regardless, it's Feb.
15, and you didn't deliver on Valentine's
Day. True, hopeless romantics (and Hall-
mark execs) seem to care almost too much
about the holiday's conventions - "I asked
for Godiva chocolates, I'm making sure he
orders pink roses and dinner better be at
The Earle" - but if spending the next two
weeks on your lover's bad side isn't what
you have in mind, regaining lost ground
should be your No. 1 priority. (Save for
midterm exams. Maybe).

If you committed any Valentine's Day
infractions (and sharing/spreading VD
shouldn't even need to be mentioned),
you should probably do a close reading of
the following solutions. And it probably
wouldn't hurt to pay a visit to the florist in
Nickels Arcade, too.
Don't dilute the already squandered
moment with over-the-top apologies. One
of you dropped the ball; the other is wait-
ing for recompense. Be confident you can
remedy the situation. This year, you're
lucky that you have the weekend in front
of you. If your foul is particularly egre-
gious, a nice dinner might be enough to
hold the tide till the weekend.

past Brown and grabs the lead
guitarist's axe. He brings the
tempo down with some slash-
ing funk rhythm, then proceeds
to stop playing, and in a move
reminiscent of Hendrix, starts
to fuck his guitar, with the occa-
sional punctuating chord. After a
little more guitar teasing, Prince
shakes the strap off and ditches
his shirt to wild applause. He
strides up to the microphone,
kicks the mic stand forward,
catches it with his foot and falls
back in one fluid motion. He
gets back up, dances around the
microphone stand a little more
and unleashes one pained scream
before strutting across the stage,
bowing and takinga huge light
post with him on his way out.
I get a little worked up just

thinking about it - Prince's
power is especially strong in
this particular performance. He
hardly has to play or sing a note
to own the stage, and don't for-
get the feat was infinitely more
remarkable as he followed both
The Godfather of Funk and the
King of Pop.
I admonish you to buya few
Prince albums if you haven't
already. Start with Purple Rain,
and go from there, and you'll feel
like a new man (or woman) in no
time. While he's surely not poor,
you owe it to the man - you were
probably conceived to his music.
- Cargo wasn't joking about his
latent desire to perform fellatio on
Prince. And he loves to talk about it.
