And we just You know, we thought well, put everything in there all the all the nasty stuff all the dirty stuff Because the lawyers will pick through it and decide what can go on. Can't go. The lawyers gave it a green light. I mean, I don't think they read it gave the green light probably didn't read it right? They didn't know why don't they were definitely asleep on the job of that day anyway, So the thing comes out, I can't repeat the stuff that was in the column because we could get sued if I did.

Sacrament Zuckerman for $350 million. I mean, I just had the laugh at II didn't have pennies to rub together. The lawsuit went on and on and on and on, and I was giving depositions in Los Angeles and New York and this that the other thing and then one day Mort. Played a round of golf with Barry Gordy at the Bel Air Country Club, and they settled the lawsuit, and that was it.

"Making the steelers. Pass the ball as well. But i really think that this team's going to get back to it. A lot of people are complaining about the rush. The run defense run defense was a lot better last week. They held gus edwards. The ten yards. The guy who did the most damage wants the quarterback robert griffin the third. And really you know when. You've got a quarterback running on you and getting those yards that's not as that's not an indictment of your rush defense because you're expecting pass when they turn around iran but when you're when it's a hand off to a running back and you're stopping them and stuffing them that's a pretty good. Go gordy we put you on the spot as we always do. Give us a prediction. So i'm looking at the I'm looking at the steelers. Still being able to score some points in this game. Not in the thirties because the washington defense especially in seventh still really good.

"This time because he was apparently at the Super Bowl. So the studios being foreclosed on, he's at the Super Bowl. So you're right. There's a lot of this is a union Yang to Marvin black nights of the Soul I. Guess There's always like a silver lining to it at least you got to see. Terry Bradshaw. The Pittsburgh steelers you know there's probably a great super bowl. So things are going you know Mick spag Marvin, personal life, but isn't a lot of money. So his lawyer has really interesting solution for divorce settlement. He says Marvin pay six hundred thousand dollars to Anna Gordy half of which would come from the advanced from his next album and the other half would come from the album's royalties. So basically, he would make an album and all the proceeds to go to Anna. You know all you to do is go into the studio and just bang out a piece of garbage quickly just anything and you know and that was part of the beauty of the deal was that if you know if tanked it didn't matter he lived up to his part of the of the of the bargain by making this album. But he's an artist and as soon as he gets in there, he so inspired by he's definitely one of those artists that works best in a state of like emotional. Turmoil and obviously that was where he was that with this album, he records his only double album called here. My dear. Yeah and I have to say you know going back to the what's going on is that the greatest album of all time? I to say that for me here my dear is my favorite Marvin Gaye record, and maybe this has to do with my personal bias in favor of like personal songwriting versus political songwriting as much as I love the political anthems on what's going on the just the turmoil that was going on and Marvin gays life at this time and how he was able to transform it into this absolutely towards music I mean this is like Prague soul like. EPIC songs go on for like seven eight minutes and have all these different movements and just like the earliest harmonies you've ever heard and this music being set to lyrics that are like the most brutal breakup song. I, think, I've ever heard I mean if we talk about like the greatest break-up albums of all time, you know Dylan's blonde the tracks Joni Mitchell's bluer springsteen's tunnel of love. You know those songwriters they're usually dealing like in metaphors you know or they're being like vague about the connections between the art that they're making in their personal lives. Marvin Gaye doesn't have any use for metaphors at all this record when he writes a song about Anna, it's called Anna Song when he's writing a song about how this record is being made because he has to pay off his alimony, he calls it you can leave, but it's going to cost you. Like that is how upfront he is on this album and it is one of those things like where you listen to it and it is of embarrassing sometimes listen to it because it is so again unadorned lyrically but I, think that's where a lot of the power of the album comes from and again combining it with this this beautiful music, it's such a bizarre beautiful singular piece of work. Just compels me to no end every time I put it on. It has my favorite single note in as entire discography on Anna Song when he just screams Anna, he hits this wail that sends shivers down my spine every time I hear it's just pain and angst, but it's also Marvin Gaye his voice. So you it's it's so beautiful an area. Yeah that that whole album is unbelievable as you said I mean the lyrics are are so personal that Anna threaten to file five, Million Dollar invasion of privacy suit against him. For these lyrics which I I don't know if there's a precedent for that pursuing someone over song lyrics that it it is it is brutal. Of course, the album comes out and it's a failure commercially and also critically I think critics at the time were just repulsed by this album. You know they gave it really poor reviews I think in retrospect people have come around to appreciating it as a masterpiece I. Think people now are really into this record. Obviously Berry Gordy was not going to promote this record. This is his sister again, Marvin gays in his family he's making this album but his sister and. All these sons that are it again, like this album is really angry there's a lot of. It is a lot of hurt on it, but it is in a way that character assassination for Anna Gordy. So yeah. This just puts his relationship with Berry. Gordy like another level of disrepair but it really it says a lot about burying as you said about his sort of coal business-minded heart where he by all accounts didn't blow up at Marvin over this at all and as he very easily could have I mean he may not have promoted this as much as it could have been. But yeah, in terms of. Friends and family relationships. I mean. This could have been a very easily a deal breaker but you know at the end of the day Berry Gordy was a businessman and Marvin was his most valuable asset at that time. So he he let it go. Yeah. It really wasn't until the next record in our lifetime where they finally separated. And even then it was Marvin's decision that album not one of my favorite albums and by all accounts, not one of Marvin's favorite albums either spent a number of years working on it and He was really in rough shape at this time with drugs and very little money i. mean this is really sort of when he was bottoming out and he spent I think three years working on this album motown saying, okay. We need this please turn this in and they ended up releasing it when it was unfinished Marvin satisfaction he says that they he claims that somebody actually promoting actually stole the. Tapes from the studios recording in and I think in London and when and put some over dubs on it and just mixed it in a different way that he wasn't happy with and released it and more an was absolutely furious and he would say interviews Motown shafted me how could they embarrass me like that? You know he compared it to to somebody to Costco and San. All right because. They've been working on this long enough. It's like sticking arm and a leg there and I write dot if you don't like it too bad he was absolutely heartbroken and he said you know what? I'm not gonNA work with Montana anymore and he didn't that was the last album he ever did for them and you know there have been other instances of course where Marvin Gaye was refusing to. Work and that's where what's going on comes out of there. You know there was another kind of work stoppage around the time of here my dear, and this is another work stoppage but this time Berry Gordy is actually like pretty cooperative and says, okay, you want us to be your last record. If we can come to an agreement the I WANNA make this as painless basically as we could make it. So very basically let Marvin Gaye go even though Marvin Gaye was still a pretty big star like one of his biggest earners. I think from Berry Gordy Perspective I. Wonder if you just had enough at that point where he felt like, okay, I am going to take a financial hit for this but on some level, my life is also going to be a little bit easier because I don't have. To deal with this guy's problems anymore I mean, do you think a fair assessment? Oh, totally. Yeah and I I also I have to wonder about Barry's state of mind in that period too because not only did Marvin leave but Diana Ross also left him at this time to for RCA and his relationship with Diana was probably just as complicated if not more than relationship with Marvin. Gaye because they. I think they were together for awhile romantically and and she was an equal she was kind of like the Queen of Motown Marvin's kingdom. Oh town and so at that point, he must have really just been like just hurting not only from a financial standpoint of what's going on with my company right now because the eighties weren't all that great for Motown. But also just these these people, I. Put so much of myself into an and worked with a mentor to and and family to are both gone I almost wonder if at that point he just he was I don't WanNa say to week but just saying you know what fine fine I I've been holding on. So tight lead this massive empire and trying to control people for twenty plus years I don't have it in manny more just go. This interesting postscript to Marvin Gaye tenure on Motown, which is the motown anniversary. Special that aired in nineteen, eighty, three I. Don't know if you've seen this performance like like Marvin geared. Yeah. It's very weird. He's in this special like Berry Gordy reached out to him personally and I asked him the part of the show an egg when we talk about the anniversary special now, everyone just talks about Michael Jackson because as the first time you did the moon walk and it is just considered like an. Iconic Michael Jackson performance but Marvin Gaye comes out and he spends about three minutes.

"And feuds and long simmering resentments between musicians. I'm Steve. I'm Jordan a rolling stone recently proclaimed what's going on by Marvin Gaye the greatest album of all time. So today, we're going to look at the complicated relationship between Marvin and Motown boss Berry Gordy, and they battled over the decision to release that record and also many other records and many other things they were always at each other's throats over the years that Marvin was on the label. The story about a visionary artists battling record label for creative control is a tale as old as the music business but this really is a version of that story told on the grand scale because the stakes are so high I mean I one hand, you have a man who prided himself on essentially building the pop music factory of all time in Motown in which he was the ultimate artur who picked the singers, the songs in the musicians and anither hand you have this visionary tortured. Genius who wants to make his own statement about the state of the world and set it to music that will progress beyond the formulas of Pop music it truly is an epic battle. The thing that really fascinates me so much better relationship is that it transcends the sort of artist label, brass relationship Marvin married Berry's sister for reasons that definitely had at least a tinge of machiavellian opportunism. So they were literally family and more of them in many ways like a mentor and father figure but. As, we know Marvin's relationships with his father figures could be combative and At least this one was more fruitful and way less tragic than his relationship with actual. Dad. Man. Yeah. That's for sure I mean Morgan Gabor's his dad would be a much darker episode. So let's pivot away from that. Let's look at Marvin Gaye versus Berry Gordy. Let's get into this mess. Marvin Gaye was born just outside of Washington DC to a very, very strict Pentecostal Minister Marvin Gaye senior who which is brutally beat him as a boy for like minor offenses in and he would say to him I brought you into this world I can take you out and he made good on this promise in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four it just beyond tragic I mean. Mervyn's own mother admitted that Marvin Gaye senior never really wanted him in questioned whether even ever loved his son. So relations between them were not great and they got worse when Marvin senior lost his job many jobs actually in sort of descended into alcoholism throughout Marvin's childhood. So the only time is really any harmony between the pair was when they sang together at the local church. I don't think can be overstated that Marvin. Gay's dad was a total monster. I mean, I saw this documentary in which Marvin sister tells the story about how they're dead would rattle the buckle on his belt before he beat his children. Psychologically, terrorize them I. mean this is like he's like the guy in saw. Hunting. Yeah. It's awful it clearly, that would have an emotional effect on anyone, but it really impacted Marvin. Gaye and we're GONNA see that as this episode unfolds just the Father Son dynamic that he would seek out like throughout his life in his relationships you know you'll Margaret he was like this free spirited kid he was an artist he was rebellious and his father would tell him you're not mine you have the devil in you. Just, just just awful treatment from his father and it really divided him in half to David. Ritz wrote this incredible biography about Marvin divided soul that really sums it up i. mean it really just felt cut in half between you know the church that he grew up in and sort of the sensual pleasures of the secular world and yeah, he was definitely he was tortured man and it really starts here in his childhood with his Dad and his dad kicked him out regularly and I guess finally when he got kicked out one too many times. Marvin joined the Air Force and he quickly realized that being in the military was even more oppressive unlimited his dad. So he apparently faked the mental illness to secure discharge and to make money to make rent. He he sang and played drums in local bands, and he was gigging as a backing singer for people like Chuck Berry and a guy named Harvey Fuqua and he made his first recordings with Harvey and a group called Harvey and the Moon Glows and they're on youtube there's a song called Mama Lucci which I think is Marvin's first. Appearance on record as a singer as a lead singer and it's really interesting. Definitely, check it out. So Marvin moves the Detroit with Fuqua after Harvey. The moon glows split in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty gigging around town as sort of a working session musician, and he's booked to play a Gig at the motown records company Christmas party and that brought him in contact with Berry. Gordy was apparently so impressed that he basically decided to sign him on the spot. You'll berry. Gordy was only ten years older than Marvin Gaye which isn't that great of an age difference but it seems like from the beginning he had this almost patriarchal role in Marvin Gay's life and I think it has a lot to do with just the natural authority that Berry Gordy had I mean Gordy to me is that archetype of like the manifest destiny great American. You know that we we've seen throughout history he's like the Daniel Plain view of soul you know. He's going out into the desert and he's GonNa find oil he's become a millionaire only he's in the desert of Detroit, and it's going to be with music, and if you look at his early life, there's these series of formative events that you can see really form his outlook as an artist because he was an artist, he was a songwriter and also as a businessman like for instance, when he was a kid he was. Selling newspapers in the black part of town. It was a black newspaper and he had the idea one day that he was going to go into the White neighborhood and sell this newspaper and he had tremendous success. He made twice as much money as he normally would and the next day he decided oh I'm going bring my friend with me and because I, want him to share my good fortune any found that when there were two black kids selling newspapers in the white neighborhood that he didn't make any money at all and the lesson that he learned there. Was that one black kid is charming to white people and two black kids can be frightening or off pudding. So that's one lesson that he learns. Another lesson that he learned is that when he's a little bit older, he loves music and he decides he's GonNa open a record shop and he's a huge jazz fan. So we decided that he's going to focus on selling jazz records, but he finds that people don't WanNa buy jazz records. They WANNA buy pop and RB records so his record store goes out of business. So that's another lesson that he learns and then After his record store goes out of business, he has to get a job. So we goes to the auto plant. He's working on the assembly line, and there he can observe this idea cooked up by Henry Ford about the assembly line. This is a way that you can efficiently and relatively cheaply turn out a lot of high quality product and make a lot of money in the process. So from these lessons, we can see from selling newspapers he learnt something about the prejudices of white audiences from the. Experience, the record store he learns the taste pop audiences and that the rodel plant, he basically learns the way he's going to be operating as the head of motown like he's going to operate motown in the same way that Henry Ford built cars we're gonNA turn things out according to a formula you know dictated by this sort of mastermind businessman and we're going to become rich in the process. It's also important to know to kid barry was a boxer too. You have all this business acumen wrapped up in this like pugnacious like Bantamweight Guy Too. So that I feel like the boxing element also colors is approach to know how we approach is business deals to what I mentioned that he was a songwriter and in one of his most famous songs that he wrote early in his career is the song money which was a hit for Barrett strong I believe, and then the Beatles covered it and it's just become a. Soul Standard. But you just think of the course of that song you know money is what I want you know and there's an irony to that there's a you know sort of an ironic message about America and capitalism in that but it seems like in a way that you could just take that at face value terms of Berry Gordy his belief like he wanted to be rich.

So you know for you before the acting career before the music business which will get to there was Buddhism right that came Beckham before the acting I think and I was wondering you grew up. Christian MRI. And I was wondering growing up Christian what was it that? How'd you end up Madonna breakage what drew you to the Buddha? Question. Is. It still boggles now it doesn't Boggle I. Am very lucky I grew up in a loving Christian household. So wasn't one of those you know fire Brimstone type situations might my grandmother was wonderful Christian? My my aunt is a is A. Wonderful Wonderful Beautiful Lady she is what it sounds like. You know it all intents and purposes and I have many wonderful Christian friends and family that that are amazing. But for me I felt like there was a point in my life maybe was a certain age of coming to being where certain things just didn't make sense to me anymore or or I. Felt that I was being drawn in another way and I wasn't sure what that way was. It wasn't a rejection of something but more a seeking more something else something that that just was sort of calling to say. So I. Couldn't quite out what it was and I remember my mother had this shelves. Books From College. There's one book in Religions of the World Textbook as a as a good place to start as any. and. So it's just kind of like starting through going through all the religions of the world literally starting with animism and and native American religions which brought me back to thinking of my own heritage and things that we learned from our grandmothers are on tees than you know, herbs and prayers that are not in any books or dances, or you know traditions, words that that are that I. Thought were Spanish that are not for example, and I started going to college and learning about that learning about old medicine learning about all different not just my try all the tribes of the Americas and I really was a great and still is a great experience. Great part of my life of the day I was still kept feeling that there was more and in my thirteen fourteen. So. I started going to hardcore shows New York hardcore scene, and there was a big Christian of consciousness movement bands like WanNa wait and shelter and and Chroma is and bad brains singing about this other esoteric type things and and you know the Christian of monks were always there hanging out singing hotter Krishnan and handing out food and stuff. So of course, I was checking it out and and there are some things that kind of you know paying some interest for me but then again, it was a lot of. Things that weren't also clicking. So know go back to the book the Book of the word yet it again. kind of thumbing through it and I see Dow is and I'm like reading through it. It's very logical. It's straightforward. There is no puppet masters like. Extra beings, there's no like get off the pay money you don't have. There's no strings attached. It's cause-effect cause-effect cause-effect that if you do a long enough, be will happen if you one plus one is to the softest thing in the world can cut through the hardest giving with time things like that and that kind of really appealed to me it was very grounded and very focused than. Kind of removed that, which may be I needed for awhile removed that. Mystical magical element at made it more about how to fix yourself now

"Now. Is Martin Vandellas? Doing my baby loves me yet. Another Simon got away from Kim Weston. One thing about Kim. Weston that I thought was interesting was her thoughts on Marvin Gaye with him. She had dueted multiple times and and she has almost like a a fans view of Marvin Gaye. She she talks about what a gentleman wise and how professional but then she says on sad to hear that he wasn't always a gentleman in his private life. It was almost like she didn't know him at all. Oh I think she did. I think I would. I took from that. Was that in their personal relations in the studio because they did do all the sessions together. He was a totally different person from what she was reading about inhering about through the grapevine when he was having all this problems when he was getting deeper into drugs and having all the issues. I can see that because I think Marvin was Had a very complicated persona on I. I don't think he was showing that part of it at that stage of his career when he was singing with her so I think she knew a different Marvin. That's what she was saying and the the other Marvin start coming out more when he started doing his own material but also when he started getting more deeply into drugs and that was an issue and he was all also he finally made the move out to California and she did not as far as I know and She worked here for the city of Detroit. I think they weren't as in close contact anymore so she didn't feel she knew him anymore. That new Marvin not sad and and speaking of the move to California the first artist. The first California artist on Motown was a young woman. Brenda Holloway again with his theme of an assertive young woman who introduces herself to Berry Gordy this time decked out just by being a pretty teenager in a sex bomb glamour girl dress. Yeah Yeah Brenda quite the. She was quite the glamour girl that I was telling her about that. One dress that they had on display at the Motel Museum and she remembered it absolutely this little mini dress. So she was. She was quite something and it she had to be to be that far away to be out in Los Angeles and still make a large enough noise that they hear her back in. Detroit you know. Hey that's what she felt worked against her that the better songs were being passed out in Detroit and she would get everything a day late. Well too bad. That's that's songs already spoken for. If they hadn't quite made the move out there they hadn't gotten everybody out there and made it their base yet so for her it was a bit of a disadvantage but she's still made some lovely tracks for them absolutely and establish yourself as a legit songwriter. After leaving motown happens. Several hits brought tears to the immense number on her. She was great. We'll songwriter absolutely and she was already doing it while she was there at motown obviously so You may be very happy. And you know She's also she's very assertive. I'm sure it's the Diana Ross thing was kinda funny because she idolized Diana Diana as so many did how could you not? But she also she was a tall girl. Diana was petite and she couldn't understand how Diana kind of boss everybody around and the stage area. So she'd call her. She's Jesus that little bone you know she can't she can't take my hairspray recounting. The book eggshells kind of Egged her on like don't let her don't let Diana do that to you and Brandis like nope. I'm not going there. You can fight her. I'm not fighter. So the Cheryl's took the hair. They took the hairspray back. And Diana. Don't do that. That's Brenda of hairspray. Now that's the classic tale of Sixties Womanhood. I think finding over Harris Brian she also has a classic Sixties Tail Tori with the Beatles. I found her thoughts on the the Beatles and and genius to be particularly interested. I know I know she thought genius Of course motown and that it's it's really interesting to read about how the no time women interacted with the Beatles and the stones 'cause the the Beatles particularly just admired The girl groups at Motown so much. It's they really you know. I think the Beatles version of please Mr Postman is almost better than their original and they they also had crushes on them. They toward the Beatles do with Mary. Wells and I'm sure tried to date. Her really tried all sorts of being when I when I got to interview. Paul McCartney he talked about how they would they would listen to motown records over and over they would put the needle back down and back down and they were particularly They love this Cheryl's but they also love the the girl groups and they would kind of copy them and it was really intriguing to me as a young music fan at the time to hear. Motel girl songs kind of kind of threw a British male Lens. It was it was really a cool thing for them to do and they did that. But Yeah Brent Brinda also had insight because she toured with them and had a little bit of A. I think Ringo was trying something with her hairdryer hairdryer. Come on whatever. And then maybe onto the vets who is not a group. I paid any attention to before and I really enjoyed diving into their discography. A little bit but again. This is a group of outsiders. Detroit which had been oblivious to these distinctions air from Flint and Kalamazoo which you know from Texas. That seems all telescopes into the same thing but in Michigan. Apparently there's a pretty big difference. Yeah 'cause it's a really big difference. And they were all they they still drive to Detroit because they are the only original group left we have all original member so they still perform the valve. Let's and they come to any event that goes on at the Motel Museum there and there they actually have the glamour still. It's it's great but they were also very unique at motown because they were college girls and they had careers so they went off and they kind of gave up their motown career for some time while they raise their families and Neely was a nurse. CAL was She works for Upjohn. The big pharmaceutical company countless zoo new and Bertha was a teacher for years. They had long day jobs careers before they went back and then they retired and went back into what they were doing. So my point is they didn't have to depend on a particular husband or boyfriend which the other ones did they. They had jobs of their own. They could get divorced and still have a stable life and they could not have hits it motown and still have a stable life. So that's their story is not as sad? Some of the other ones like Mary Wells. They they did very well and now they're back at it now. They're being women of motown again. Which is very cool. And they're his You know the really saying something. Got a revival in banana. Ram It did but Yeah they they really didn't get the tension. Maybe that the other groups did 'cause they kind of came and went late and they never did make the they'd never did go to California of course but and this is a quote from Berry Gordy in there that it's the secondhand quote but that these were families with resources and that he didn't want to deal with the family attorneys. I didn't attorneys on me right right. He was to that because they I think they signed anyway but Yeah he he was kind of afraid of them as college. Girls that are gonNA come in and outsmart him there especially attorneys. What and that's sort of damned if you do damned if you don situation where you know if you come in as this way with no resources totally naive you're going to be taken advantage of but if you've got some people back in union you got legal support you're going to be avoided because you can't be taken down and Mary. Wilson just said this recently again she said yes. I think our our contract was perhaps a bit exploited but at the same time what she said. I would totally do it again. Are you kidding me? I was a teenager on the front step of Motown I can be signed to motown. Hell Hell yes. We're we're sign and it's true. What else what other options do they have? Here's motels with exploding. Out of Detroit or was about to explode come and do some recording so Yeah I can see both sides of it and in terms of the industry time contracts. Were not very good for the artist. And the at least at motown you had a more family atmosphere where they were GonNa take care of you. They were going to nurture you and give you a clerical job in between you know yeah and then the last chapter in the book is is a sad one about the great Tammi Terrell who died of brain cancer at age twenty five. And now there's lots.

How to Start a Blog or Website
"First question that are you might ask yourself is that which platforms would you too so this is one of the question that you should ask yourself before you start your own website the first question of course so. I had a comment your platform. Let me tell you some states that I own own on the Internet so on the Internet. Although athletes that you see ir made fifty one thousand nine percent ninety six percent up the the vet said that you see on the Internet are created using place where it is open source cms software that use use that is used to create fifty one point nine six percent of the Internet's website so that's cool and next is Vicks we just seven point zero pipe percent than doom love open to one percent and squarespace three point nine six percent sand and there are also some completely accorded websites which are made on over st panel so that stupid open three six percent and then we three point one percent and then sites like Gordon Gordon decide etc which is one point six percent so you can see that are majority of the websites are over wordpress which is fifty one point nine six percent. Oh senso is huge and of course I'm to recommend you platform so obviously my suggestion is workplace. If you are starting a dynamic website which can do anything you want. I mean you can do whatever you want with all our website. If you buy a your own hosting so that's I would recommend this though platform that I would recommend what Bruce I'm not talking about what dot com I'm rocking World War Brisk Dot. Org which is called self hosted wordpress so you should open or start your website on self hosted wordpress art press platform so yeah. That's burt is still if you don't want to use wordpress and create if you want to create just a static website with few dynamic teachers are you're not simple website then our recommend whibley or dot com so you can use these these tools to create all with a side window and it will be easier to create the these websites but it won't be a very customizable it will be a static website and not completely static but you get the idea is it's not a super customizable so oh and not easy of course so you may not want to use this if you are trying to explore things and want to create bigger business to customize the website a lot so my recommendation will be workplace and even if you don't want to. Oh you is what praised you can use or start calm so let's move on so if you will if you use wordpress take recommend then you will need hosting to host your website so let's talk about all hosting so everything is basically flat that one where you back for more stories where you host or keep your website on the Internet so that they are a couple of platforms assumes that I would recommend you but let's let's talk about. two things reported okay what you should be looking king in your hosting in hosting company or hosting package or whatever so plus will you should look for apptime or who don't they should be great or. I'm inventor like Landon and poor nine percent and hundred percent hundred one hundred percent impossible or maybe sports but our state hosting the never gives you a hundred percent up time so that's that's an issue off said hosting plans I haven't I haven't tried dedicated hosting so I'll talk about it later but you should look for up aim is it it should be somewhere around ninety nine percent and of course if Dr and will be higher than the downtime. We'll below that means your site will be online for the most of the time so second thing that you should be taking this story a lot of our hosting sites. This are hosting companies. They'll that you get unlimited hosting but they are all lying. There are no unlimited story stories available and I taught blues is very honest and they will. They'll give you unlimited. It is terrific. Give actually but your side will pass them will not function properly when you reach the rich are certain point point reaches for PD beautifully made so they don't talk about it on their suspense was clearly they're lying and similarly. There are a lot of companies with who are retired are lying about their plan. They all say that you get on unlimited stories but none of them are giving you actually unlimited storage. Unlimited story is ally so you must take other stories you get I will. I won't recommend blue hose order anything any websites which still sued that you have access to unlimited storage because clearly they're lying and I don't want you recommend our company that lies and you may all also know that I I recommend bluest alert on my website myrtle soon. NBA replacing them with Oblivion Zine or cloud with hosting or something like that because they simply lies and I don't like how companies that lie so I'll remove them are and replaced with side grout groping Zine or cloud based hosting so oppose I'll be a good hosting. That doesn't life so yeah you SORTA look for a storage homages stories are getting Macaws. Almost Aubrey hosting companies are lying and saying that you get unlimited storage but you won't get it trust me and of of course there are companies which are which are clearly telling you how much storage you will get so I'll I'll talk about that in a moment and the targeting that will start in our hosting company is customer support so customers of old would be better and I think all the companies have good customer support. I never had any any sue with the customer. Support have tried to hosting side grow laws. Even blue host is good with customer support and then and then you all look for features like catching speed as certificated et cetera so these are the things that you should look for look in your hosting packages or hosting company and now Nick Men and it's Maya condition for web hosting so I would if if budget is not a problem for you than our Iro recommend you you plowed with hosting Dublin. WB engine or side Donosti aside garnished hosting is cheaper than the the other two options since but of course cheaper options you get to quality of posting so but it's I donate not Putin or the hosting company salutes great actually and I would highly recommend US recommend to use side grown even use. I'd grown and I also I'm also trying lorries always now and I haven't read Lupien but most of the Super Creator or super blog or for whatever you would like to say out of using WPA engine so that's one of the top Oh hosting for what I saw yeah but whatever opinion super expensive so you might you may not want to buy hosting if you have budget is so in depth case in that guess you should go to cloud ways and if your budget is still bulow then you can go to side drawn hosting but none of them are our T- posting by hosting all of them are great hosting so these are three web hosting Austin comedy that I would recommend you to use if whether it is not your problem but if you are loaned by then I will recommend you to use eight to hosting I've also used this hosting and this hosting is good at at the praised day offered it's not so so great but of course it's better than bluest or hostgator et. CETERA on the very phrasing and still their services are pretty good so you can if you're long visor. You can go go with worsening alright. So will you use of hosting company or website or to create a website. You'll also need our domain. We have already talked about how you should think about your state's name and similarly how you should buy your domain so you you want to listen to the previous episode to understand that. I'll not talk about that in this particular episode but Liquid Elliot how you can bite you can all you can buy it while buying the hosting for your website or you can buy it separately if you buy it separately then you will have to connect it with the DNA records so it's izzy she's just so if you'll just search on Google or I also have all video on my youtube channel you. If you want to do these things so it's easy to connect your domain your hosting so that's not a problem you will you'll be able to do it so I'll just talk about the platform that I would recommend if you want to buy domain separately not from the hosting companies so named Dot Com because of course aw like the name suggests you'll get the cheapest domains here name to his best player. Pont du by domain cheapest rate and the second option that I would recommend his Gore daddy most of the Indian stews Gordy because it accept payments are with Indian Indian Muslims Indian cards so that's one of the go-to option for Indians so either you can either you can. I I do you buy from your hosting company or you can buy from named deep or Gordie
Motown's First Lady Claudette Robinson
"I'm Johnny Hansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program motown sixty years of Hicksville the USA with cloud at a net Robinson founding member of smokey Robinson and the Miracles Kim black uh-huh. I just couldn't get in the gross helps eight needs today. Everybody everybody gets real excited when I say Berry Gordy but he wasn't as well known at that time but smokey actually knew who he was because smokey you look at the hit parade magazine that was out in that magazine actually had Lee had the lyrics listed of the song as well as the song writer or writers and he has seen Mr Gordie's name down there so he was oh boy. You know I'm getting opportunity to see this famous guy well. I must admit admit I had never heard of Mr. I guess really sheltered or something and I've thought who is is because smoking was so excited he he was like oh so at the end of that. Mr Gordy said he'd like to work with us on February nineteenth nineteen fifty eight miracle. I I single gotTa job was released in nineteen sixty. The song shop around became motown's first million seller that same year Motown L. Founder Berry GORDY stored on Claudette Robinson the official title of quote First Lady of motown into quote born Claudette Rogers in New Orleans. She was bright and adventurous like many contemporary. She developed her talent in the sanctuary. The family moved to Detroit Royd was she excelled academically with honors and graduated from Commerce High School at the age of fifteen. She attended Wayne State University through a sophomore year here. Before joining the Marine Corps reserves the miracles career has spanned more than five decades group has so more than sixty million records in two thousand nine commemorating their golden anniversary in the entertainment industry the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on Miracles with a star on the Hollywood boulevard walk walk of fame as motown founder Berry Gordy stood at the podium. He's saying we quote without two miracles. There will be no motown and of quote. Ah Recently Robinson was in Austin Texas to participate in the summit on race in America and the opening of the Grammy Museum's new exhibit motown the sound L. of young America Roberson said down with them Black America for this exclusive interview born in New Orleans. You all moved to Detroit. Actually I moved to Detroit. When I was eight years old? I was living with my grandmother at the time and she passed away and my mom came for me because I was actually living doing with my grandmother at the time and we moved to Detroit on the west side of Detroit us now going back in the day in Detroit. Well you know when your kid everything is wonderful and amazing first of all I saw snow for the first time and it was a lot of fun you know because now I was with my brother I had two older step sisters and my stepsisters would take me like like to the Tigers Games 'cause one. She was just so fascinated and excited until she took me with her. All the time. I think that was one of the ways that she could get out because I don't think she was supposed to be dating so she took me as the excuse you know put the miracles together well. The miracles came together or my brother had a group which consisted of smokey Bobby Ronnie and Pete and the guys had a group firstly we the chimes chimes five times and they became the matadors will when my brother was a matador I actually formed a group of five girls and that group was matador aretz prior to that when my brother was an orchid I had a group called the orchestra so whatever you did I kinda followed his is legal. My brother decided nothing was happening with the show business stuff so he decided to join the army as a result the guys used to always practice in in our basement to rehearse in all of that so I heard all the songs and after my brother was gone a great audition came an opportunity for an audition in came about and it was absolutely fascinating you know and that maybe you get an opportunity to be able to record and as a result smokey asked me would I go to the audition with them as their fifth member and I said yes and that the idea and when we got there and rehearsed the gentleman that was auditioning us. I'm sorry I don't like I don't really like the group he didn't see say it just like that but it meant that what he wanted actually at that time he wanted smokey and I'd be like a dual and the duo would have been just he and I see and forgetting the guys Mickey and Sylvia were real popular at the time and so therefore that's what they wanted that's so he wanted will of course we weren't GonNa leave the guys of course I was knew I wasn't really a part of their group yet and we we just kind of you know the guys especially. We're so so very very disappointed because they thought this was their one opportunity. They're going to get a recording contract. Well there was a gentleman walking around and that gentleman said do you have any more of those songs and smokey spoke up and he said yes he said how many said one hundred rid so we said well. Can I hear some of those so when the piano and we started singing and performing not very much performing mainly he just singing and re. I'm laughing because I actually was in my United States. Marine Corps a uniform. I was in the reserves reserves and I was you know it was that time of the day so it was coming from our basic practice and went to the audition and you know after all that happened and then this gentleman asking us to sing he listened very very patiently very repatirated. Every song has to have a beginning a middle and end so that you know how to write property can't be all over over the place and because we went to the audition singing five original songs and after that occurred you know when we saying the gentleman introduces himself and he said my name is Berry Gordy today. Everybody gets real excited when I say AH Berry Gordy but he wasn't as well known at that time but smoke he actually knew who he was because smoking you look at the hit parade magazine Zine that was out in that magazine actually had had the lyrics listed of the song as well as the song writer or writers and and he has seen Mr Gordie's name down there so he was like Oh boy you know I'm getting an opportunity to see this famous guy I must i I had never heard of Mr. I guess really sheltered or something and I thought who is because smokey was so excited excited. He was like Oh so at the end of that. Mister Gordy said he'd like to work with us so I was you know I'm new to the group so I I don't know include me or not and as as we kept talking to him then I found out later more about him and and his family is family was really well recognized around Detroit. You know they had so many entrepreneurship businesses. They had a a printing company. They had a record company. They had yes. They have construction. They also so had Mrs Gordy senior was well into the insurance business so they were really really entrepreneurs long before leaving her. Yes yes and there were eight children. Mr Gordon being a child number seven which always that's that's a pretty lucky number so we started working with him. Of course this year is that particular year was nineteen fifty seven so Mr Gordon was saying that we needed record so our first record that was released was February nineteenth nineteen fifty eight which coincidentally is bobby and smokey's birthdays and you know same same day same year same everything same hospital as well as they actually found out later an hour apart and they met fourteen years later uh well as story went on this is now nineteen fifty eight but there is no motown yet that had not occurred and and when we see that magnificent wonderful royalty check three dollars a nineteenth since it was like Oh my God you know. Is this this this what happens with showbusiness how you ever GonNa make are you going to ever have a home or an apartment or any of the above and smokey suggested to Mr Gordy that you know maybe you should have your own record company because we certainly could not do any worse yeah and that was kind of like the start a we had had prior to that a two record deal with the record label which was our I song gotTa Job can then after that we had a two record deal with chess records of and the thing is I don't recall with the royalty check was from wound gigantic. No no it was never gigantic. Unfortunately well well as as time you know went by motown itself which is now sixty years was started January twelfth nineteen nineteen fifty nine and would made that something remarkable as far as having a company Mr Gordon Gordon what had not only have thought that we should definitely have our own record our own whatever and and so the song for that became we recorded Chaperon my mother call she said Eh on you growing up now pretty soon new take awry and then she said
"gordy" Discussed on Only A Game
"Participating in a brand new sport called ride and tie. It doesn't really matter how it works. All you need to know is that it's a relay race involving teams of two runners and a horse by the time the nineteen seventy four western states came around Gordy was in pretty good shape. He also had a new girlfriend. I told my my girlfriend, I said, well, I'm leaving such and such time. Can you go up with me and she says, oh, no. I'm I'm going to the jalopy. Races was Margaret Friday night, a what? You know, it's like I felt really left alone and abandoned somehow I knew, I'm about to do the most important thing I've ever done in my life, and she's not going with me. Now how did I know it was? But of course it was, you know, Gordie drove to camp on his motorbike and met up with a good friend. He calls her. His sister, her name is Diane, Diane asked me, where are you going to sleep? I said, I don't know. She says, well, wanted to sleep in our horse trailers. So, you know, we scooped out the new. I mean, horse, horse poop, actually doesn't smell that bad Gordy says the writers woke up early the next morning at three or three thirty they had to feed and water, their horses, and get everything set for the five AM start Gordy stayed in bed for a while. Got up. And I got, you know, get ready to go. I had a lot of time because, you know, it doesn't take me as long to get ready for run as a horse. About ten minutes before the start. I went up to Ralph and Betty Deavere. They were sitting with a gas lantern, old kind of shoe, you know, and I said, well, I guess I'll be going. And they said, well, good luck Gordon. And I just disappeared into the darkness. It was like nobody knew happening. It was. One of my favorite words, auspicious. This is very inefficient. It was amazing soon the horses and their riders caught up Gordy when we hit the single track trail I had to go their speed. You know that was eight miles an hour. And that was way faster than I wanted to run well for miles. I got to the forty mile point. And I just said, you know, I I'm never gonna make this it was one hundred seven it was so hot. I couldn't focus so I got to the point where I said, what can I do? And this voice from inside me said, I can still take one more. Step Gordy told himself that is long as he could still take one more step. He would. But on the climb to devils thumb where the trail rises sixteen hundred feet in one point six miles Gordy decided to quit when he arrived at the top he found his good friend Diane, so she came up to me and she goes Gordie how you're feeling and I go I'm quitting, don't quit. Just yet, come on over here, under this tree, and talk with page and me. So I did. And she correctly diagnosed what was wrong with me. I had run out a sold. See because there weren't any aid stations. That's right, Gordian xlii had set out to run a hundred miles in a race without a single water. Stop that Thursday before the race. He'd bought ten bottles of Gatorade and using his motorbike had stashed them along the course it'd be plenty. I mean, ten court. I mean, how much could you need? I found out. You need a lot more that Diane massaged border. Lakes and gave him salt tablets in water. And I couldn't believe it. It's like half hour later, I felt fine. So Gordy kept running. He ran all the way to the finish line in Auburn by, then he decided to stop worrying about the girlfriend who left him feeling abandoned. When she'd gone to the jalopy races instead of traveling with him to the start. Instead, he was trying to impress a writer who to company him to the finish, did a die forward roll over the finish line. And they wrote it up in the paper that I'd done Handspring..

Report: Chris Ivory to Be Released by Bills After Frank Gore Signing
"Bills Schefter reports that the bills are planning to release. Chris ivory schefters tweet out about ten minutes ago with the signing of Frank gore. The bills are planning to release Chris ivory today per league source. Steve I had when I read that before the break. I was thinking I had a hard time getting my mind around it because. Well, we've been going through this free agent period. And the bills have signed all these great guys. And it's been great. We get bitten better and Irish could players. And so it's it caught me off guard that you got. Got to say goodbye to a really good player. And I forget, you know, we do that. We've done that before we do it. All you do it every year. There's going to be good players that you lose either in free agency or whatever the injury and ivories one of the I think I've the first guy I mean, they've released other guys as well. But I've read the first guy that at times this last season he was their most effective offensive player and. Yeah. They gotta say goodbye to him. When I get it. But it did catch me off guard because we've been talking so much about getting better here. Getting better. They're getting better here. Getting better there sign this guides better. This guy's good. This got some depth that we're doing good. And all of a sudden, you got to say goodbye to a good player caught me off guard. I got you know, we don't obviously the usual added Frank gore to go along with Shawn McCoy. Chris. I Chris ivory just turned thirty one years old last week. So age is a factor the cap, you would think is a consideration here. I had a pretty good year for the bills last year played in all, but how many games here all but one two three three games. We played in thirteen games. Is best game was against the colts. Sixteen carries eighty one yards. Scored one touchdown that came to against the chargers. You know, he was good back-up last year. I don't know if you will you miss him. If you have Frank Gordy amiss Chris ivory to make that case remains to be seen. But it's hard to think that you're going to be like next year.
