About

My name is Zachary Hoskins, and for the last four years I have been blogging about the music of Prince, song by song, in chronological order. I knew when I started this project that it would be a huge--bordering on absurd--commitment. There have been no surprises there. But I also want to provide a more regular stream of content to the small, yet dedicated readership I've built than what I am able to put together in my free time. That's where you--presumably a part of that small, yet dedicated readership--will come in.

In 2019, I launched a Patreon for Dance / Music / Sex / Romance: not because I wanted to get rich off of writing about Prince, or even because I wanted to make writing about Prince my full-time job; but because I wanted to be able to reasonably allocate the time an ambitious project like this demands. I wanted to be able to say no to other freelance opportunities, not only because I would prefer to be writing D / M / S / R (which, for the record, I almost always would), but also because it is a better financial decision. Time, unfortunately, is money; and in the past four years I have been unable to put as much work into D / M / S / R as I'd like because of a lack of both.
Goals
$95 of $100 per month
At $100 a month, I will return to recording monthly episodes of the d / m / s / r podcast, with topics voted on by patrons!
