Greetings Webtaculators! Hope everyone is having a great time celebrating Passover! We here at Webtacular World just assume that everyone else celebrates Judaism,since it just makes it easier for us. However, if for whatever reason, you have no idea why Jews decide to eat a terrible version of bread for a week (OR DO WE????), please feel free to see INTERNET THING OF THE WEEK for what is basically a Seder service. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: The Prince Of Purple
Why: Because Prince was one of the most prolific and influential musicians of our time. Again, a transformative musician’s death has been one of the bigger stories of the week. Again, it’s hard to fathom how this is the “story of the week,” considering how many other things that seem like they should be more important. However, the fact that individuals such as Prince really do change the course of culture on a prolific level shows just how important these people actually are. Here are some other songs that he also was responsible for.
