The July 2009 SPIN MAGAZINE has a page titled “TOYS OF SUMMER” which includes cameras, watches, shopper bags and a Drew Brophy Surfboard.
The Drew Brophy surfboard painting shown in this magazine is titled “Flying Fish” and was sold for $14,000 in a Surfrider Foundation New York auction.
This issue of Spin Magazine also has an insightful article on the elusive talent, Prince, and the making of his Purple Rain Movie back in 1984.
The most intriquing trait about Prince was that, even when he was a nobody, he knew what he was capable of. He never lost sight of the big picture with regards to his career, and he believed in his vision even when others didn’t. Because of that belief, he never stopped until he got what he wanted. In this article, that was getting the movie when not many people believed in it. Incidentally, the movie was a huge success for everyone involved.
We’ve put Purple Rain on our Netflix list – it’ll be great to watch again after all these years!
