From Rugby In Australia To Football In Philadelphia
"Bo. When we're watching games, we sometimes forget to pay attention to the offense of Lineman, but you wrote about a play against the Ravens recently where Jordan my Lada really put himself into the center of the action. Can you take us through what happened on that play? It was sort of a typical zone read up the Eagles thirty yard. Carson wentz is in the shotgun and he has the decision as to whether to hand off the Mile Sanders or hold the ball and run himself. So that's what he does. wets keeps it on a read option he'll get out to the thirty five hour live Paul, loose ball, the ravens every covered it, and he fumbles the ball. The ball POPs out and a ravens defender picks it up the Safety Chuck Clark an se starts to run from out of nowhere comes Jordan, my Lana, this six, foot, eight, three, hundred, forty, five, pound guy probably even heavier than that, and it is as if he is. Taking over all of his training from his youth he just attacks Chuck Clark like launches into the air and in the same motion swings his left arm around and pinpoints punches the ball out, and it just shoots into the air and it ends up landing at a balance. So the Ravens keep the ball anyway but to see a left tackle do something. So athletic was definitely eye opening. Jordan. My Lada is a powerhouse in front of the microphone as well. where. Does MY PASSION FOR MUSIC COMING FROM? So he says it like everything else in his life I sort of comes from his family, a big family and Kiss. One Gill he ever cut new family I and everything that I am staying. Going I, get it from my family. So He is the child of two Simone immigrants they grew up. He was the fourth of five children in a suburb of Sydney called Bankstown and he says, you know everybody in Samoan Culture is talented in music in some way, and so he is very good on guitar. And it's true like he's got a really beautiful. You know he was never despite how big he would get. He was never sort of the biggest kid growing up but around great seven as he calls it, he starts just shooting up and it never stops and this was a very sports friendly family, but rugby league was their passion. So He's playing rugby league and all of a sudden you know it looks like he's sort of the Danny Monteverde of what's going on in Rugby League Heavy like this guy. Check his Team. Running jerk. Everybody's asking for his birth certificate like there's no way. This guy can be fourteen years old fifteen years old and this becomes the running joke. Every time he's playing with his team. We fast forward a couple of years. He's seventeen years old. He's on his rise as a rugby player. There's this scary moment one day at practice. Take us through what happened. He's playing four I guess what amounts to the youth team or the be level team the practice squad sort of for his local rugby league team in Bankstown and he collapses one day. And everybody's sort of just chalked it up to you know this guy's too big too unfit, and then a couple of weeks later it happens again and they sent him straight to the hospital and immediately you know the doctors are like we need to get you in for emergency surgery. There's an issue with his heart. And over the course of about a year and a half, he ends up having to separate heart surgeries where he has a hard abrasion and both the upper and lower chamber of his heart and at that point, the idea of even continuing to play sports he thought that that was probably over. Once the second surgery was over the doctors said, he was totally fine. He was ready to go. You know once he was recovered from that. So shortly thereafter, he gets back into playing rugby league and he's sort of on the rise. But at the same time, he has to work a part time job he's doing. Jobs. So he's starting to get a little bit frustrated and a agents toss out. The idea of would you be interested in trying different sport trying to play in the NFL his agents send his highlight video to the international pathway program for the NFL and the NFL has this program where every year about four to six or seven players from around the world are given the opportunity to work out for NFL teams and it up to La when they were. When I? I. Didn't know this for. A week in La, that's when I really like. Fine Tree and What I WANNA do the hurdle from there is he has to convince his family and his family is not about it at all and as Jordan describes it, in Samoan Culture what the elders say go. So it's basically the end of the conversation

Do you mix it with anything. We just need room temperature chilled. Babak. If I'm lucky with the bear bikes but. I haven't had a drink in six weeks and then six maybe even longer and then the other night I decided to have a cafe patrol. Because I ended up my friends that's. My friend the next day always feel that good. This morning I had some cafe patrol last night and he said how many and I said two and a half shots. And went, oh, that's and I said well five technically to with double. I'm enjoying the hall. I know it was like. Over, do it. I'll just have a half of the last one, but it was very nice and I watched the Oprah. Mariah Carey interview I was sipping. What does seem a whole? Just described on your perfectly fluff safer. I know exactly but you are joining me before we go off on a major you joining me for an episode of Feel Good Habits, which is the franchise or the series only Magan show where I quiz my guess about the tips, strategies and techniques, they use to stop bad data heading into a bad week. Stop getting out of the bed the wrong side turning into ruining every day as whether your own those sorts of things and also. Let's face it. It can be a bit deeper and you are. Pure, joy. As a friend but also as somebody that I am lucky enough and I know lots of people lucky enough to engage with on the Internet viral instagram you just put out nothing but good thoughts. And feelings kid thank you. You know about I just I like living each day plus Ignited your knife is GonNa, come to a close I. Know that's so grim but I, liked to enjoy life and I think it's really important to try and use my platforms to spread joy and just biftek WanNa because life is tough it's hard work and actually it's just remember the beauty of life and it's to half feel-good smile and Laugh Day. That needs to be a t-shirt gills. I know I do actually need a PA to just stay with me at all times taking votes. That's a Hashtag. If you're available send Jesse. Rhonda she'd be. Efficient. I reckon would work in a chip here the weekends and I wouldn't have a problem with it. Oh, I actually. I had a craving fish and chips last night. How funny that you say that?

That's how it goes. Yes. Yeah. True. So I'm guessing you've got some flipping excellent feel good habits. So I think the first one I actually want to put down. It's not something that I've written but you jogged my memory now is a good habit is. When you get out of bed in the morning I, really truly believe that how you start your day will massively impact the rest of your day and I know that that's this very common Skill. If you make the bed those who make the bed, we'll have a more productive day on. It's something that I really try and disciplined myself in the moment I wake up I'll wake up and I'll stay on instagram and go through my DM's which for me is compartmentalized as an hour. Before out bed so then I have an hour after that and I make empty the dishwasher maybe claim a kitchen before dressed might do a little bit of a workout with something and then I, started my day right now what that does is it puts me on a really Positive, productive mental state of mind if I don't do one of those if I lie in bed if I mess Abou-. Than sometimes my diet can unravel and then it got straits with myself, and then I know that I I know that I can stop being mean and it's just not worth it. So feel good habit number wall I think his start your day rhines and from the moment you get up start doing nice things. So I'll combine actually with this other one I've written down is exercise has feel good habit.
Tracking the Trends: AI, WebRTC, Crypto, and Full Stack Startups
"Today's episode is a conversation about four big trends in the tech world. Any one of these trends would be notable on its own, but we cover all four in this hallway style chat as a sixteen z general partner Chris and talks with Sept. Campfire professor of media, arts, and sciences at MIT, and now co founder of cryptocurrency platforms, Selo and Eli Gill an investor in the CO founder of Health Technology, company color genomics, and formerly at twitter and Google. This is a wide ranging survey of some of the major shifts in technology right now but it's really a Meta story of how innovation happens, which is most definitely not in a straight line. So here, the translate cover Crypto, of course, a and machine learning including GP three. You can also listen to our explainer episode on what type and what's real there on our show sixteen minutes full stack startups, which Chris I wrote about in two thousand, Fourteen and collaborative web collaborative enterprise social including RTC or real time communication within the browser, which is where the conversation begins the first voice. You'll hear his Chris followed by talking about Web RTC and then set wants the conversation turns to Crypto. So it's a lot I. You and I have been talking about this in a negative excited about it. This kind of this feeling that there's a new stack of web infrastructure things like video audio. Collaborative Video Nadia rather who's having infrastructure now that it works in a way that it hadn't in the past and that's a mocking a whole new way of interesting applications people are always looking for the next platform and what the next big platform shift is and I think I kind of May have snuck up on all of us in the form of Web RTC Web Gio and then related. API. Companies providing sound or other things that have been built on top of by. Many other companies and I think the shifted substantiate itself in two different ways and almost call it the collaborative web and then separately the collaborative enterprise and if you look back ten years, people kept talking about during the first social way everybody talking about how there's going to be a social enterprise and how every SASS product was going to be more social and collaborative in that largely failed and it feels like that shift is finally happening in part due to things like what? You see fig for example, is the first really strong example of a Web jail enabled application along you to collaborate in real time with other people. In parallel with RTC is really allowing for really interesting concurrent sessions around video and tell you starting to see that in terms of a lot of products being built around virtual office rooms, virtual conference rooms, and I really do think this is the moment where collaboration is finally being built into the enterprise world and enterprise products, and then in parallel Web Jalen. Web RTC really seem to be enabling really interesting social experiments right now in terms of new social products, you have really amazing video and audio quality. So the time lag has gone who can do things that clubhouse. There's lots of interesting video experimentation. So you can see almost like degraded forms of your other things happening in browser or so I think now is a really exciting time of innovation around this new webstock. Point sneaking up on us, we've obviously had the ability to have conference calls group audio for decades. Right. But like a club house fact that there's so low latency and you've got like the visual representation of the room means that to me it's like if you remember the old days in the conference calls, Hey, always have people talking over each other partly because of whatever thrown is remarkable how the conversation switches from person to person. The latency I mean we both houses. This was zoom right like the fact that he doesn't stutter. The fact that very rarely does. It somehow Kinda Crossover. This point of good enough where finally hitting the point our in terms of video quality and the ability to stream concurrently across multiple users in terms of audio quality were hitting that point where the web infrastructure is really supporting the ability to have extra latency. A new platform excited at the examples. But when you say platform you that means you did they'll be thousands of examples. Are you think it's GonNa? Be a whole new wave that goes? By ten years. I think like any a quote unquote platform they're going to be a handful of things that really matter. That will really be the important things on it, and then a lot of things will be experiments that fail or don't work and I don't know ten years from now, what's going to be the main setup applications? I just think it is a shift that enables a bunch of applications to be built particularly the social or collaborative enterprise. One example that I think is worth noting in terms of what's coming due to see is it's quite possible that if you. Look at virtual reality or Vr the predominant use case in the near term mackey shift to the Rouser, and so I think right now in order to experience the are you need a headset you need some cases client software etcetera in. So there's more obstacles in hurdles to be able to participate and I think one of the things I found really interesting about where to seeing what jail is the ability to suddenly create like experiences where you just drop it. Can show up and so the big question in my mind is is oculus almost like the desktop computer versus mobile devices where the desktop really helps you do powerful tests, but you can do a lot on your phone and it's sort of the mainstream use case for most of the Internet today so I think that's another thing that we'll see if it happens or doesn't happen over the next decade, but that may be one interesting long-term trend to watch relative to web RTC. In. Jail. crypto rolling all involved in this allowed, you invest in Crypto Zapped new coupons company Selo in Crypto Abbasi's been my time besting. tells. A little about why you're excited about it in the second ring on. So I'll start off with general principle that I think is true for all of the technologies that we're talking about. There are certain class of technologies that increase the expressive range of a certain medium and when you increase the expressive range of a medium. Things pop up that were not possible before because you now are playing in the new design space. The historical example that I always love to point to is in the eighteen hundreds. The invention of the metal feral in painting is the little piece between the paintbrush and the paintbrush handle and collapsible easel. Those two things together allowed people to a brave paintings outside and be start to paint with a new breastroke that them too quickly DAB, paint onto the canvas in those two. Ended up, giving rise to form of painting that we now know as impressionism, and still it's interesting to think about impressionism was a result of technological advances painting and you see that same thing with the web and the Internet in general there were technological advances in the medium of text and so all of a sudden people could send texts more quickly anybody could be a broadcaster you start putting texts together with code to create different things in that vastly increased the expressive range of texts in a way that led to all of these things that you could not predict in advance. So for example, in ninety, four, ninety, five, when the web was starting to become popular, one could not imagine that. Will one day I'll be able to press the button and order my groceries on this and have my groceries come to me. You know and so I think those are really interesting from A. Technological point of view. Why I'm excited about Crypto is that Crypto does this for money? It increases the expressive range of the technology that we know is money, and that I think we'll follow very similar to the Internet you know at the beginning of the Internet. You saw allow people to pass messages. More quickly to one another across the distance in a way that was just qualitatively different than facts, and that is the first thing that you started seeing with Crypto it has direct implications to things like remittances or making the UNE banked. But then on top of that, the second implication of the web was that anybody could become a broadcaster with youtube anybody could have their own TV station and in the context of Crypto, you have the same democratization in financial services. So you see this kind of rise in decentralized finance open finance. And third is most exciting as it allows money to become programmable in the same way that the Internet allow text to become programmable and that I think, I mean we're seeing some early things today but that's I think the aspect that we're still the earliest and it has the most legs and is the most powerful and the most difficult to predict the stage. Since we're in such an early phase
How to approach mixed planting
"Going to stop with question of the week this week which comes from Jill who says they're an avid outdoor gardner but new to house plants. Well, welcome to the world of into Gardening Jill good to have you on board Jill has what they described as possibly odd scenario. ooh, I do like an odd scenario. Okay. Let's look at the details. Due largely is an ideal candidate to start her own indoor jungle because she has a yawn dying studio because she's got big pans of water steamy throughout the day. It's warm and humid a you thinking I'm thinking listener. Yes. I think Gills GonNA end up with a lot of house applause before long a negative attitude he love that warm. Humid. Environment Jill says that not really knowing much about house plants I partied a prayer plant state plant, and variegated fighters all all in the same large pot. All seem to be happy on putting up new growth but the plant is getting massive. Should I plant them in separate parts or just let them fill on their in? is now an okay time to report or should I wait? Jill is in the northeast. U S Well Jill. What a lovely problem to have. I am all for mixed planting. It's something that comes up now and again in the show, we really should talk more about it because it is a really great way of creating beautiful house plant displays. Now the plans that you're talking about in your particular arrangement, you've got a snake plant science. Very or well a to use the correct genus name although account quite come to terms with that yet APPRAI- plot. So presumably, something from the Miranda, we don't exactly what but I guess actually whichever one it is the answer will be the same and a variegated. Lakers. How will they live together well, obviously for the moment that living together very well because that putting on growth. On the PEP PREP LOT is starting to do its thing get enormous. So what should still do I think in the long term the snake plant of that trio is the planck that may be the least happy with that setup. Snake plants can cope with a huge spectrum of conditions, and that's why they're so popular as houseplants but ideally, they will like slightly free draining potting mix than the other two. On also love a good exposure to full sun I know lots of people suggests snake laws for the deepest shade. But really if you can give him son and a good loss of heat in the summer, he do get much better growth and results and it opens up the possibility that the plants will flower which is. Nice because Sansa very flowers are lovely. I think going into the autumn full for you. Americans out there that it's probably fine to leave the plants as they are for the winter nearly worry really is that you'll need to water the Maranta more than the sense of area would like. It's a tricky one. I would say probably the if if the morente getting really really big, it is worth taking the time now to separate out the plots and Redo the the companion planting thing. But with slightly different combination I would take that sets up apart. The sense of area that would look great with other sons various, you can have a mixed planting various sense varies in the same big part I always think that looks amazing. So you can have one of the tool sense of areas, cylindrical or Tryphosa. And then around it, you can have some the bird's nest types like honey i. so think about that as one option I know probably involves buying more plants or you could just pop the sensor very up separately and when you do that, you can give it a bit of a grittier mix and the other two. Then you'll Miranshah because she could keep those in a mixed planting and replace the sense of area with something like a low growing Tonia or low growing Pyla the heart leaf him united's Ariff. Olea. We could have something like my layer Lebron says trailing pilot tralee on the side of the pot. You may be wondering why I'm recommending during this reporting. Now at the end of the growing season, oftentimes people panic about reporting at this time of year. With? CACTI. I'd be cautious about doing it. You have to report CACTI and succulents. Now then make sure the potting mixes pretty much just slightly as opposed to soaking wet because the plants are going into their dormant period on the whole but I think with most of these plants which are tropical subtropical plants, they're kind of used to growing all year round and right now they will be fine. The one caveat is don't put them into an enormously big apart try to keep the pot size roughly the same. So those route bulls aren't surrounded by a massive swathe of unrooted compost but I think it should be fine. And offsets the risk of the sense of various rotting over the winter because you'll have into water the Miranda more than the sense of various needs. When? You're setting up mixed planting. The main thing to think about is what will go well together. They've obviously got to be it all in the same setting. So cheese plants that all like full sun or like partial shade and also I think about how much moisture they like around the roots. All these things will make the difference between success and failure when it comes to mixed plantings and bear in mind that you know it's not a permanent solution probably once every one or. Two years you'll have to be breaking them up and moving things on some will grow much faster than others. These arrangements don't last forever, but they do look fantastic. So do give it a try and hope Jill that that helps you have some ideas for your particular arrangement. I'd love to see a photo of your yawn studio and all the plants in it because it sounds amazing.
Interview with Brooke Schultz
"Creativity is more than just having talent. It's about making a choice to utilize whatever talent you do have. That's a lot easier to say than do sometimes because self doubt and insecurity can service considerable obstacles. It didn't start that way because as kids we created without such distractions sometimes I think we spend a lifetime trying to unlearn all that stinking thinking. For Brooke Schultz her love of photography is more than just about making memorable portrait's families but helping other photographers to leverage their desire to be creative person. Using her workshop center podcast heartful with Brooke. Celts, she does just that. This was a conversation that very much looked forward to as it provided a special moment of positivity during some very dark times. This is e body and ex and welcome back to the candidate frame. The KENDRA frame thriller Nice to have you Thank you so much for having me a buyer your next. Are you know Marshall is often about more leading a creative lifer leading fruit for photographic line, which is all about just being creative in your your podcast in a lot of what I picked up from you focuses on that as well. So I thought this might be fun time not just the learn about your work but just to have. A conversation about creativity. Let's do that as much as I wanNA learn about you in your work I think. Having a conversation like this, like this is always always good to have someone. Yes. Thank you. In one of the things Dow was kind of interesting was this idea of giving yourself permission to be creative. And having been a man I you know I always taken it from the male perspective because it's the only choice that Hap- But. It's interesting in terms of something that I heard in terms of what of your episodes speaking from a woman's perspective especially, a woman who is. A wife, a mother, and in terms of sometimes the guilt that some women feel who are under the circumstances about making the choice to be creative from the cells in in terms of seeing it as something that selfish. And thought that was really interesting and it's not something that I really have had an opportunity to really discuss specifically of touched on it. I. Think at least a couple of times on your podcast I thought that would be really interesting way of starting in the conversation so. Talk to me about that. Wow well, I'm curious to know. have. You ever experienced that like a guilt feeling for being creative or is it just like I'm creative and I need to kind of work through the creative process but not so much the gill in terms of other aspects of your life most of my guilt is been not doing mea. Not so much that I felt like I was depriving. The. People in my life something as a result of making the choice to be creative. No every you sharing that because I think it's speaks to what women currently experience in a cultural sense that to be a good wife mother or just women in general, you are expected to do it all do it all perfectly and don't let anyone see you sweat dining and Especially to be a quote unquote mother you're expected and it's kind of like this seeing that runs in the background I think of just give yourself entirely to your children and any time that you spend away is somehow. Demerits or like a is taking away something very valuable from them, and so that's been something that I've had to really consciously. Reprogram in my own belief system to believe that the creative impulse is a human impulse and regardless of our roles whether it's a mother grandmother, you don't professional creative person or just someone who enjoys taking pictures or whenever you're creative outlet might be that those impulses are human that any humans in your care whether it's children or otherwise are going to be benefited by that creative impulse in my watching you be creative. Did. You ever feel this before you were a parent or is something that seems they've. Become especially pronounced after every given birth to kids. I think it's definitely more after having kids kids are so needy. ME. Need you all the time and especially as. In my family and many women as a mother, you're the primary caregiver and so you're the one that it falls upon to fill those kids needs all the time and my kids are really little. They're seven, five, four and three months so. You know they they need me a lot and so walking that line and that tension and dance between how much they need me and what I need. Myself is a really interesting one to walk and I think all of us walk that one way or in creativity because we have other obligations besides just you know sitting around getting inspired making creative work you know. So it's attention that everyone can relate to but I think it's especially prevalent in mother had.

"The Buddha said now this is the noble truth of the Path that leads to the cessation of suffering. It is simply this noble eightfold path. That is right view, right, intention, right, speech, right, action, right, livelihood, right effort, right, mindfulness and right meditation. So today we want to focus on right intention. Which is the second? Of the eight fold path. So right intention. What is right intention well Gill. Franz dill explains intentions are the primary or underlying motivations for what we think say or do. So it's the reason, the motivation, the goal that were aiming at when we speak when we think and when we do things and all of us have we have as I explained in the last podcast there several layers there's the surface one the more basic one, and then a primary one motivation or intention. And as Gil Franz Dale explains the intentions we live by have major consequences in shaping our lives, character and psychological wellbeing. So now, what is right intention? We want to get into exactly what the Buddha beans by that. The Buddha explains. And what is right intention? It is the intention of renunciation, goodwill and harmlessness. This is called right intention. So. There's the Buddhist definition of what right intention is. An intention is right when it deals with the renunciation, goodwill and harmlessness. Now some translations. Will have non ill-will instead of goodwill but Gill Franz del explains in the ancient language of the Buddha. The negative prefix implies their positive opposite non will means goodwill and non hostility means compassion so instead of harmlessness. You could also translated s compassion. So. Let's look at these. What is what is it meant by renunciation? Intention of renunciation it means that abandoning of attachment, aversion and ignorance. These are the three major poisons or or fires. If you will that get us caught into the wheel of suffering. Attachment, which means we crave and grasp things. Aversion were pushing things away. We don't want that. And ignorance meaning we're not even sometimes aware of the process a what's going on of this pushing and pulling and this ignorance means we're ignoring. Reality were not connecting with and paying attention to what is really happening were caught in the conceptual fabrications and not seen reality for what it is. Now concerning renunciation, goodwill and compassion Bhikkhu boaty writes. The. Three are opposed to three parallel kinds of wrong intention intention governed by desire intention governed by ill will and intention governed by harmfulness. When we think about each one of these. US to know what our intention shouldn't be. The first one is desire, and this is actually the one that that trip's up most of us. If we're for honest, its desire as Bhikkhu. Bodey explains, were you remain in bondage desire because we see it as our means to happiness. We think that sensual desires. The desires of the census is going to make us happy. And that is so embedded in our society and reinforced in media and social interaction that this is really really difficult to see through. It's the thing that trips us up. ill-will is basically selfishness as putting yourself. I is not realizing the interconnected and interdependent nature of reality. And the third one is harmfulness. This means like hostility irritability

That's that's my. That's my heart there And I named a period. Where yet the that's the way Who can I say in this in the nineties? I love with Neil. Does I like Neil like John Him? Okay Okay you millennial Joe Okay like Joe Where do you? Where do you feel that soul? Music is God I the Allen now. I'm asking questions that I hate doing. Young Rapper No. But it's how how disheartening is it to you to see or this is like a two prong question. One is just like singing is not what it was when you were coming up especially with now technology and how it is yeah whereas now you know like well sit anybody who still live. Now Yeah. I'm just saying like where you're you're where you're auto tune rapid is mostly singing now right well you know. I don't have a problem with that but then on top of that I guess right now it seems as though like most when you think of soul singers It's people that don't look like you right right and I'm in one hand I'm like okay. Well Yeah I can see that you've been influenced by this. Then you listening this artist so you know. What are you more dismayed that more? Black people aren't carrying the time or or that. Maybe we just don't know about them. I still think that they're singers out. There there's a lot of singers that are still out there. They're still singers making R. and B. Music. It's not the artist industry. Yes the industry. It's the you know everybody. You know music so just totally segregated. Now this I mean everything is based on research the kids and I dream like yeah. It's just that we have to look and understand. The one thing about a hit record is when you say hit it. It has something that's magical that resonates with people that's why it becomes unique. That's why it becomes special that's why becomes a hit because it can connect with people And I think the problem is that we're allowing industries. It's just gotten to a point where everything is a category and it's so it doesn't even allow even out new generation In these kids to really really grow up and be educated to understand what music really is or what you know. What a great song. Because they're like if you've never had so full appreciate everyone or even have a desire for so pool and I believe that it's just gotten to a point where it's not so much of the artists that are still outfitted. Just not getting a shot. It's tough to take even though there's some a lot that are making music but they're not able to get an opportunity to be heard and that's only due to because of the way this industry is now everything has been diluted. It's like if it's gotTa be if this person's not on this artists you belong over here not because of the song it's just based on the formula an ACO because that's your name that's where you are. That's how old you are and it's just gotten so crazy that it's just hurt the industry and they're still hurting us and I don't think it's going to get any better until we can get a people begin to understand and recognize and identify when you just got great music great songs and you see that is reacting. People are Are gravitating to allow everybody to be able to have an enjoy it and stop trying to control trying to put everything in a category. Everything necessarily belong in a category. If it's greatest great if it works it feels good. Feels good and I think that it's just gotten so bad now it's choking and killing out sells but at the same time. What does it feel like for you to still be making new music and be embraced like still be played on the radio? Like they'll get that number one so grateful I'm grateful and I'm just doing my part When you listen at the songs that I recorded on this new album game changer to I'm doing as a musician stretching out being able to do Music that I enjoy doing but I never compromise. Who Johnny Gillis and. I understand that it's important to do that. Make sure you stay in. Be who you are and making sure that my audience can appreciate what I'm doing here but at the same time also allowing myself on artistic standpoint to be able to do and try to things that I enjoy the music that I enjoy when you listen to me myself would call Santana and sheely I love that type of music and I was able to be able to enjoy it and bring them on and collaborate with them to do something that I've always wanted to do but I don't when you hear me singing you still hear Johnny correct and I think that it's just for me. I'm grateful that people I can see because when I go to work there's sold out shows which tells you it's a blessing. First and foremost they still want to hear from you. More importantly and I believe that there's still a number of people that really appreciate what we do and And I believe everything comes full circle. I think it's cycles. We go through these cycles but I think at the end of the day. I think that it's like everything else. Real music true music. True artists. True musicians It goes through a cycle. But you know I don't think that You can keep us down forever. It always comes back. I have a question okay. So you in resisted your. Do it together on on the album. Yeah Yeah Frisbee. It's as a matter of our own when I came out. And he told me to tell you again next is is because the thing is after the bio pic came out. I feel like this new edition bio pic is doing is doing better for you. Guys what the temptations couldn't do their bio-pic even the Jackson's couldn't do with their bio-pic and you know I know that there is politics in the group in their six of y'all Yada Yada who do we know the drama. But it's like if there ever was a time. When y'all have millennials in the palm of your hand like is now to the point that I'd see I mean kids born like after two thousand and I like that young? Yeah coating the movie. Yeah and so they're mostly invested in you guys yet to really not cash in but really the right. That's the bottom to take that victory lap. Yeah but what does that look like? They did do stuff like no other. Nations new edition has yet to reunite and tour behind bt movie but they dictate you did and we did one show after that moving. That was the Steve Harvey thing I think we did. That was in the internal issues that goes on with. This group has been going on since thirty some years. We FIND OUR WAY BACK. We go off. We have we come right back. We're like a married couple and what I kept telling everybody you know what happens when a married couple when they love each other and they keep breaking up coming back bringing up the problem. Is You have to deal with the core issue here because as much as you love each other until you deal with the issue and get that straightened out what you're doing. Is You know you love each other? You break away come back. You still got the same problem so you in back up with the same outcome and something has to change and so even with Kobe just recently. We all started texting each other. I Love You love. You love you man. This is crazy. We'll all six of you. It was our last do this and we were all blue. Their fighters were actually when rebel. That has crowd and and what I said to everyone which I think is important that What we learned was life just sent us all a message that it don't discriminate. Don't who you are and at some point this call could've been. This could have been any one of us so you realize that at some point we need to take heed then a few weeks ago about a week ago. Ronnie's brother Rob who works with me. On his way from Atlanta I was planning a baton rouge last weekend he fell. Ill led to airlift him actually to hospital in Atlanta. Now Rob is Ronnie's brother. Who's the biggest new edition fan and he sits even though he worked with me? He's always the guy that's GonNa Man Y'all brothers and me. Yanni's a stop in young man and he's that guy and I was like I said when I got that call and I was like okay. Wait a minute we just got a warning and with Kobe. And then who knows who knew a week later that it was going to step inside of our family and the one person that everybody loves. Rob It affected everybody and it was like book. Also what are we doing here? Is this really? I mean when you put it in perspective so I was. I'm the oldest so I bought and said and I've told them I was like you know. Forget who's right and wrong. We all just gotTa do better. We gotta do better. We all do and I said at some point that means that we have to look at ourselves. Be Honest and begin to try to figure out what we need to do we. We never stepped foot on stage again in life but how to get all these years and the things that we've done Together in the memories that we created the impact that we've had if we never stand on that stage again there's no rhyme or reason for us as family members brothers to not have some level of a family of a relationship as brothers as men. And so we've been you know we've talked we've had those conversations and that's just where things are and I think that you know time time heals wounds and I think that who knows what is going to happen. What lies ahead. But I do know that my main goal and like I've told them and I feel it is important is that we all take heed because you begin to believe or you saw what happened to Kobe. And then you see it got even closer in our house but our own family so we got to take a step back here and figure out what the good Lord is trying to tell us. I suggest the METALLICA. Some kind of monster yes rallies. I suggest group therapy. I'm now I'm GONNA sick Lauren. Zander on everyone. Oh that's okay. Orange Zander she. She is the Lauren. No she learns in there. Is the group whisper. She keeps groups together. Let me tell you something it's crazy. You know what I said to them this evening. We need a counselor. This is the first ever been crazy time. That sentence has ever been said amongst time but people will think about them. People aren't thinking very seriously like normally I'm really given. I don't have to pay for no more therapy after I give her this this endorsement. No what what she what Lawrence the end does. She's like well known in the industry and and she fixes groups basically like managers will hire her to keep groups in tech and it'll be over small sit back to be a business but that means that both of Y'all see her. I don't mean to be seen as a as our individual. She's she saw. She's everyone's person like will. I don't want to.

"Zone yeah. You know! When Terry told me he says you probably not going to sing any songs on the album. And then I wind up start singing songs I can't stand the rain and doing atlas, and all that stuff and I'm going show I'm thinking. Why can't this its own so right and? After all out of all those great songs, the very last song, the they decided they were gonNA. Let me do a lead. Full lead on was boy cement, so I'm going Oh. This is some political Bush. House like I think they just mess with me now because they just and I said okay, so they don't give me this piece of ball that saying as a whole song, and so it's like. In the. Late timeout so. I was really mad like ain't gonNA. Tell you to grow. Listen is nineteen down around eighty seven. Eighty eight is some soothing. You've recorded in eighty seven. Yeah, yeah, okay, so Jimmy Lewis the height of their powers at this point, yeah! You had an opinion on a jam. In eighty seven. Yeah, because you've got to remember I had already saying. On. Can you stand the rain and? You're not my kind of girl Any heartbreak and I'm let me unleash. And then he was like okay now we'll give you a song yourself I'm going. Really and so I'm listening to the track record even because there was no. I was going to say. How do you get a song? WHO DIMMER WE? All the on heartbreak I I, didn't them? All of my I just put on most of them. Some I would do. Let's come in. Do something verse somebody else come in? He'll let somebody somebody to mimic or whatever I did. And then they'll just kind of blend whatever they would do, but this is what I'm trying to get out of the jam and Lewis which they never answer is when they're creating songs together. WHO's creating that song that that eventually plays the artists like? You never heard the. No God. I never heard Jimmy Jam saying that hurts you. Oh my God. I got gotta five. I'm going to send you a couple of OWL's jam singing and when he's singing Oh my God. I'm typing right now. He's telling me what your voice sound. Light. No None No. With Do you want me to do what's come you don't do you have to Johnny? Terry. Those. Right words, Tammy. Jerry Terry will do the lyrics. Jam would sing the melodies for you, and I used to. I want to keep these these. I don't. So. I was mad and I kept saying okay. So also now y'all just playing games now. Political Wow I saw. Did you say? Can I get a better song or like? To ask no I just said Okay so you play with me, I said I'M A. Single. Shit Outta this song. You and that's why I wear near happy I was mad. and. I Sing Mad as hell I was like okay. Yeah, you WanNa play with me. That was you met me man. I don't know. I kept thinking man. This is bullshit. I always good songs. They're gonNA. Give me this one. The everybody see the drew hill unsung. Fuck Is Brand new. Has the same story pretty much about a sleeping. Somebody's sleeping in my bed. He did not want to sing that song, and so the performance he gave was, he was just mad. He said I'm the fuck out of. What I did was. Naturally think that you WANNA sing the. Song? Let me sleep through my mind. Now I recorded that song and I hate that, too. It's not that I hated it. I wasn't sure about that one and I kept saying. About, this was the shows. Because they were talking about. We recorded it. and. Joe Buzzer. He was like yeah. I think this might be your your your next single. This is going to be a signature song. And I was like really and I can. Co But. Would you know about that one? What was your single? What would you think should be? Off of that album feels so much better. One of those songs I was just like Oprah. Both. My favorite favorites. Right there, Karen wise background vote yes. Your. On Net five I. Tell you where I needed. And I remember telling, Terry we still work with just pretty much finished I did my last quarter was a lady and I. Said I looked at him I said. Do you think we've got enough? And looked at me and said we got way more than enough. Negro Goodbye get Outta here gone. and. I was so feeling like do i. have enough this album going to be a? Of what was. fucking. Let me let me ask you because again. You are a maverick singer. So, let me ask you. Do you respect? The Art of simplicity absolutely but I can you. Can you embrace song that won't allow you. To do your default gymnastic absolutely? Absolutely hindsight back then. Could you sit back then? No, no terry used to be like you got an approve this. You'll have have to prove it was like at that point. There was a point where you just going. You would just go every time I go. I will go all in. It was like I'm showing you some. Because if you doubt me, I'm GonNa, show you so I always thought it was dead so. One hundred and three six may stop the tape and be like no just seeing the melodies. They go okay now now. Do Your Johnny now. So, so you have an arrangement with them like okay. I'll sing the song here but then. Johnny you. Let me, tell you it was crazy because the first person that told me. And taught me, or at least at that point I still wasn't dear of immature nothing standard, but Loofah told me one days. You know my favorite. All Time Johnny Gill Song. That's what he says. Luther was nice to. To? You to tell you what happened. A? Miracle. I've never heard Nice lupus story. Ever people the whole. Happy when I would walk in or come to one of the shows and they go johnny there because men. Go at it, just Joan in on each other like. None Stop. He used to be all you can hear. Screaming here's the call me. And would call and go listen this song I'm getting release as a single. and. Tell me what you think, so you play I go. Shit sucks. You could say. Go You should probably gave it to me..

"Okay so explain to me in hindsight of course and I you know I. Of course we all seen the bio pic. I'm Steve Yes even me okay yes. Bt Okay so just explain to me what the Division of Labor but what is truly when you're in a five man group like who is sort of the captain of it that makes decisions or is everything totally just diplomatic and we all get man say or does it always constant lead just a bunch of madness tug of war in heaven say tug of war tug of war for for for for a power struggle for power who wants to be and when empowered to be able to use your voice because I mean you the late on wall I came in immediately and said I was watching two guys that were the security guys and they were running picking up girls airport. Going to store taking people's non-stop non-stop non-stop and they're looking at me. And I'm looking at them and I'm going you know and they were like we haven't slept days. It's like it's non-stop non-stop trying to handle board five guys team. I said you know what I call the meeting. I'm the new guy I call them meeting and I said you know These guys out here in you're supposed to be protecting us. And they got our lives in their hands. And I said last thing that I want is some disgruntled worker here. Who's claiming that that working hard and they're saying they've really totally underpaid. I think that at the end of the day that we're going to have to figure out a system that allows them to feel good. I know their job is to protect us. But they'll go the extra mile when you got great hard workers and your appreciation appreciation and I said so we need to sit down figure this out and so we came at a room and successfully got them a raise and they thought Johnny for president. I knew you know I was standing outside outsiders so I'm standing in looking at all this stuff that's going on and you know and for me when I joined the group the thing is I always had still had obligations to Motown well actually MCA. But when Gerald busby over to Motown I gotTa have women with Gerald Busby questions. So when I vent that I I knew I still had an opportunity as an artist to be able to express myself artistically so it didn't matter to me about being a part of the group as a matter of fact. I often said that it was about teaching me and giving me balanced to be able to be a team player and play like being on the basketball team and knowing what your role is and then actually being able to go out at some point and do what I needed to do As an artist I always knew that so I was always comfortable with whatever role that they had to play. Jim Listen Terry. Lewis told me when we got there and sit at the table to start recording. When I first I came there with them. He said you're probably not going to sing On this album I said said no no problem. Just whatever you need to do breaking did do the demos thing because I was thinking most of the stuff that they would then they would come back and record. Sing the stuff that I was doing. I was like Oh but it off. I part somewhere I was gonna say I was Gonna say that how intense were none. Brooke Pain Tasks in this period of new edition as in the guys do Vogel Rehearsals do you guys decide harmonies like is we left that all up to Jimmy and Teri Brooke handled all of the Choreography. Right. I'll never forget the day that they asked me to join the group. We went over Ronnie's house and they broke. The meat is over there so Brooke. Okay so well let me see what it is. He kicking the can he do the cross step and he was like. Yo can jake. Can you just do the call step than it was that so and then Brooklyn Brooklyn is with listening by the video? Do I look like God? Bless you man natty Church Boy Assay dancing secular stuff at all. No I mean the only seconds we would get is doing family A cookout when you would hear Marvin Gaye right Some of the other ones but other than that. It was not a church meeting house. All all the Holy Ghost dancing this so don't so he had to work all right. So how how long? How long did it take for you to finally catch on? Wow we did God. It was a while it was a while. Because what would do he makes you rehearse and in front of the Mirror. Well when you learn dances for me because I'm not a dancer. I'm like you learn these routines in front of a mirror. Then he removes the Mirror. Now you have to learn it and you have to have remember memorize and the form and all that stuff so it was almost like fuck it. Just let me start right now. Just remember from here without the mirror so I just have it down I. It was like no. You Gotta learn and see what the problem is. Which is doing with the hands where everybody's hands are so it was a frigging nightmare was the logic of all right so when. I first seen your first tour with them. You guys use the temptation microphone setup. Yeah Yup was the logic and also anytime you guys perform. You'd never did the traditional format Ri- of Mars you always had a diagonal thing. What was the logic behind that well because it would work for the for for the choreography because of the different stuff that was that was intricate so it was like we were switching. Mike's and switching positions and so he would sit him the Mike's in positions where their best work for everybody because at the end somebody was going to be over here. This side. Somebody's going to be on this side just based on the routines so and the that the the the the five Mike thing was really that our whole temptations got a trivial thing. Okay but it was like we did A little medley. They're on those on the mics but everything had like Brooke just had an eye and of that was just out of this world and he have you doing stuff where you go. It doesn't make sense to me until it all comes together and you go oh damn so all the staging and the creativity that usually is brooks rain childen. Yeah and then you would think oh man. He's just picking on me. He goes and he would make us go to each. We'd have to go through the whole show from the beginning to the end altogether. Then you go one by one to go through the whole show. Wait what and if you mess up all over against our Beckett the truth can you imagine what I had to do? You understand every once in again not that. You're not the one that fall short anymore. Always the one that would go left and Mike Romance the right way the right one. Isn't it going this way? Since we're here jammed? His hit me now says ask him. Why did he hate singing? Boys to men zone. Yeah you know when Terry told me he says you probably not going to sing any songs on the album and then I wind up. Start singing songs. I can't stand the rain and doing atlas and all that stuff and I'm going show I'm thinking why can't you sing that song? So right and after all out of all those great songs the very last song the they decided they were. GonNa let me do a lead full lead on was boy cement. So I'm going. Oh this is some political Bush house like I think they just missiles now because they just and I said okay so they don't give me this piece of ball that saying as a whole song and so it's like in the summer time out time out so I was really mad. Like ain't gonNA tell you to grow up. Listen is nineteen down around eighty seven. Eighty eight is some soothing. You've recorded in eighty seven. Yeah Yeah Okay. So Jimmy Lewis the height of their powers at this point. Yeah you had an opinion on a jam in eighty seven. Yeah because you've got to remember I had already saying on. Can you stand the rain and you're not my kind of girl. any heartbreak and I'm elise and then he was like okay now. We'll give you a song yourself. I'm going really and so I'm listening to the track record. Even because there was no I was GONNA say. How do you get a song? Who Dimmer we all the on heartbreak. I I didn't know all of my I just put on most of them. Some leads come in do something verse. Somebody else come in. He'll let somebody somebody to mimic or whatever I did. And then they'll just kind of blend whatever they would do but this is what. I'm trying to get out of the jam and Lewis which they never answer is when they're creating songs together. Who's creating that song that that eventually plays the artists like you never heard the no god. I never heard Jimmy Jam saying that hurts you. Oh my God I got a five. I'm going to send you a couple of holes jam singing and when he's singing. Oh my God I'm typing right. Now he's telling me what your voice sound light. No no none no with do you want me to do what's come. You don't do you have to Johnny Terry Terry right hand words. Tammy Jerry will do the lyrics jam would sing the melodies for you and I used to. I want to keep these these. I don't think so I was mad and I kept saying okay so also now. Y'All just playing games now political. Wow I saw did you say can I get a better song or like to ask?

"The album and after the album came out. the, Johnny Gill Album. The first one was when shortly after that. We we. All right, I'm seeing a little bit. Jam Jam. Texted me right now. I hit him early this morning. Walmart the Johnny Day. He says. He says he has terrible tasted in his own stuff. He hated my mind. Sitting. Paragraph right now we'll get to that. You Know I. Picked up it. On the first. Anyway, hey you. So, why is it that? They claimed you've just three days. Because I became famous. I see. And, they always kept back I mean I. Hear it all the time you went to do guilty. A couple of yet because. Johnny Guild Stacey. Laddis saw after that. That's when more famous people came from Ellington, but really they were the first like well. This is a very special place I. Mean Marvin Gaye I mean there was. Pretty parent I think was from near. I mean Toni Braxton. Yeah. It was a quite a few I mean people that the DC connection was how Freddie that prisoner for some. You know I don't know, but he I know that. When I signed with Atlantic records or Was the one that actually that was his idea to link up with parent. For some reason, so so is the story true like? How did you get your deal, was it? Real I didn't know that was like a label. Best. Dina Ross Governor Jackson sort of it was crazy. Because you know Stacey night, we grew up in the neighborhood. We Stacy's house was like the that was the the playground for everybody. I mean you come you go to school. You come home. Change your clothes and everybody. With Stacy's. We know something's going on whether we won't be playing. was going to be going to the movies or going roller skating, or it was like everybody would meet up at her house, usually organizing and i. tell you what happened with her. We within the Glee Club together and elementary, and even back then we didn't. We weren't very good friends I. Mean we just you know acquaintance and then? One night one day we were, it was raining, and everybody had to go downstairs into our basement, and she said okay. We're going to have a talent show. She was like everybody has to do something. You gotta get out and mind you. I wore suits. The school sounds like. You always know suits. The where double-breasted suits with. Oh Yeah Jefferson I was no I. Let my dad was a minister and I think I didn't realize it at the time but I believe that. I was really. Influenced by him and didn't realize that because they used to let you know my nickname, my brothers and my God brothers that was next door. These the call me. My nickname was overnight. Come back but I used to wear a suit and I just feel comfortable. Instance. Nobody made fun of you and your sue had three older brothers, three brothers and that was. Next door the ones that the next door they would come home for lunch and you see them with Blitzer. What happened in beat up the teachers? I one point. PEOPLE WANNA. Talk to say hi to me. We kind of. Had A pretty deep army. So I could wear whatever I want. I see okay. So what was it? How how much time does she have before How many years did she have? When you least jumpstart facie? Let's see about at least three years. I would say. One Right? Yeah! Yeah! Eighty one because she had that I'm with. Van. Fan McCoy McCoy I think that was the very first one that one didn't do me be. That was the first one and let me be young. Maybe there was the one that she did with with Narda. Think didn't end up doing another one with Narda, but she'd had about three years on me before that and you know back then you know. I was just on the same lot. No I live. Maybe about ten minutes from them, but I used to ride my bike over there. Because that was the stomping grounds, everybody would hang out over there, so I would go home and I used to ride my bike with my suit on. I'm curious. Issues wingtips. Got Established. She still maintained these friendships or was yet. That's. Jackson's and all that stuff. We will up during that time. Everybody was hanging out back then, and of course you know. that. This was before I was even in the game. You know you understand. I was standing up on the pimple. So.

"Mind sitting paragraph right. Now we'll get to that you know I picked up. It is on the first anyway. Hey you so. Why is it that they claimed you've just three days? Because I became famous I see and they always kept I. I mean I hear it all the time you went to do. Give us a couple of days yet because Johnny Guild Stacey Ladder saw after that. That's when more famous people came from. Ellington but really. They were the first like well. This is a very special place I mean Marvin Gaye. I mean there was pretty parent. I think was from near. Um I mean Toni Braxton Yeah it was a quite a few. I mean people that The DC connection was how Freddie that prisoner for some you know I don't know but he I know that when I signed with Atlantic records Or was the one that actually that was his idea to link up with Freddy Parent for some reason. So so is this story true. Like how did you get your deal? Was it real? I didn't know that was like labeling like just Diana Ross Governor Jackson like that sort of it was crazy because you know Stacey night. We grew up in the neighborhood. We Stacy's house was like the.

How how much time does she have before How many years did she have when you least Jumpstart Stacey let's see about at least three years I would say one right. Yeah Yeah Eighty one. Because she had that. I'm with Van Fan McCoy and McCoy. I think that was the very first one that one didn't do. Let me be. That was the first one and then let me be young. Maybe there was the one that she did with with Narda. I think. Didn't she wound up doing another one with Narda? But she'd had about three years on me before that and you know back then you know I was just on the same block no I live maybe about ten minutes from them but I used to ride my bike over there. Because that was the stomping grounds everybody would hang out over there so I would go home and I used to ride my bike with my suit on. I'm curious issues wingtips.

"Some hill for it now. Moments a question for you though 'cause I know you from DC and I always wondered if How deep does Google culture resonate with your art like? Have you ever thought of Chewy incorporating any of those let like? Did you ever at all immerse yourself in go multiple we street church an hour structured. But I did I was absolutely familiar with it and I used to play it. I used to get My mom worked three jobs. I would come home from school. I would get my brother's drums and before you know it. The whole neighborhood was coming around the house and they were all jamming this. You know but it wasn't something that I put in my music but I just that's how I used to practice as the practice. Gogo sound okay. So exception of New Orleans. I'll see that DC has Steeped in black music culture in a way. That's not like any other place in the United States House that so like why is it like the fact that your brother had a drum set mouse especially post seventies is well my dad usual? My Dad was a minister. And you know we used to sing and play in church and He bought all of just different instruments. And I was one of those kids. That was just intrigued by everybody's instrument my brothers. They couldn't figure out why could play the bass. Why Complaints Drums? Wykeham play the bungles and I wouldn't you know as a kid when you grow up your siblings defied and it's like no get off minds you don't WanNa play toy so I would play sick and wouldn't go to schools and when I was young. Either baby they never understood why I could pull everybody miss. But while he was gone he was practicing Kim and even as a kid I was I would have never been. I couldn't describe this until I was intrigued. I didn't know that's what it was I. I was just a kid but I wanted to play their instruments and everybody was like no new drums guitar and so I was like. Wow how old were you at the time? When you started sneaking on your brother's instruments I'll about eight eight years old and we all had instant. My my dad was a minister. Joe Jackson. I'd sort of you. My Dad was the no nonsense guy and would make us rehearse. We would have to go to school the next day but we couldn't go to bed until we got it right. Solomon Brothers all we all sing. And how many how many siblings? I have three older brothers so it was four of us. Total and my dad would make us put us Talent shows and but he used to make us we hers and we couldn't go to bed until we got it right and when we got it right we got us a glass of Coke Coca Cola adapt and go to bed and then you gotta get up early school. But he was like you know I. I didn't realize he was doing what he was preparing me for. Only not to put you on the spot. Are Your brothers as good as singing as you are or I have one that Kinda mimics me? He can do what I do randy. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah so I mean you know. He'll go at me as a matter of fact. If you're going to on Arsenio show you'll see a man him going at it with each other on our senior really. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. He's out at the beach area. You Little Bama so all right. So what are the other ones? Were just My oldest brother hated the whole music. Thing he was the oldest. We used to get When we would come home from church because he would sing with his back turned so my aunt and my dad used to get him. He said when he turned eighteen. You would never sing again. He turned eighteen really. I like I'm done. He just didn't like it but he had to. Because when my dad used to make us all sing and business yeah or yeah he can think thing he just didn't want but he didn't like it. Wow okay he didn't like it and my dad used to stay on him because he used to sing with his back turned like he didn't WanNa thanks to audience and he would get in trouble for it because they knew he was doing it intentionally but he just didn't like it but he could see. Wow Yeah no regrets on his part like Could have been and continue to ever look back. Okay I see. So what was your period at Duke? Ellington I know many of students.
