Feminist Literature

"This week from me here getting the problem that has no name. Feminist literature. All right. If we were going to cover just like feminism assure general, we would be here. Forever I'm sure there's already a podcast that that covers that folks I'm sure. So we're not trying to reinvent the wheel here. No. Quick definition. Feminism is a range of social movements, political movements in ideologies that aim to define establish in achieve the political economic, personal and social equality of the sexes. Feminism incorporates the position that society's prioritize the male point of view and that women are treated unjustly within those societies Charles for Ya who is a utopian socialist in French philosopher. He's the one that's credited with having coined the word FEMA KNEES MMA in. Thirty seven. So, modern Western, feminist history is conventionally split into three time periods or waves. So you'll typically hear them referred to as that Each of them has slightly different aims based on the prior progress that was made during the wave before. I wave feminism is the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that was focused on overturning legal inequalities, particularly addressing issues of women's suffrage. Second wave feminism is the nineteen sixty s and nineteen eighties that broaden the debate to include cultural inequalities gender norms in the role of women in society, and then third wave feminism. The nineteen ninety s to the thousands that refers to the diverse strains of feminist activity. So third wavers are see this as a continuation of the second wave in also as a response to the perceived failures out of the way before it. So I guess we're right outside third wave right now I think we're moving into the fourth wave interesting, which can't be defined until after it's passed exactly exactly a you. Hey I know my history man you know what I'm talking about or woman. Watch out I should say I WANNA point out as part of that definition. feminism is not women are better than men no absolutely not and it's still maintains to this day. It's about Equality Ackley. So exactly that's all I wanted to point. For our listeners great segue. Lauren. So seminaries literature, it can be fiction or nonfiction or drama or poetry that supports the feminine schools of establishing, defining and defending equal civil, political, economic, and social rights for women. So we're GONNA. Cover. Ten important feminist. Pieces of. Very excited that everyone should know. Great and we'll go in chronological order for me So the first we're GONNA talk about is a vindication of the rights of woman with strictures on political and moral subjects by. One, craft from seventeen ninety two. So this is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy it was published in the United Kingdom Mary wollstonecraft responded to th century educational and political theorist who believe that women should not receive a rational education. It was believed at the time that women were too susceptible to sensibility and too fragile to be able to think clearly. So not able to be. The recipient of a rational education. Sure. Sure. Sure. So craft argued that women's education should match their position in society in that they are essential to the nation because they raise its children and could act as respected companions to their husbands then yeah So Wall Street, maintain that women are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights as men and that treating them as ornaments or property for men undermines the moral foundations, a society which how about that you think You'd think that people any rational person would be like, yeah. That makes sense treat women as human beings. Sure. But the fact that there was such vitriol against this concept is like my to me but it was seventeen, ninety two that was like, yeah. Put it into writing and people are like. Dr. So her work had significant impact on advocates for women's rights in the nineteenth century particularly, the eighteen forty eight Seneca falls convention that produce the Declaration of sentiments which laid out the aims of the suffragette movement. In the United States Mary Wilson Craft her name might be familiar. She is the mother of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. And she actually died eleven days after giving birth to Mary wollstonecraft shelley. So Mary wollstonecraft was like she was this great feminist philosopher great writer, her husband was super. Supportive. And she died in childbirth which. was killed a lot of women. Yeah. Septicemia man because men who were only allowed to be doctors. Refuse to treat women because of all of their naughty bits, nobody washed their hands. Oh Yeah. Nobody we should really point out. Yes. No one wash their hands that probably cost a lot of issues too.

"Fact, I speaking as a lot of other brands middle of Iran of. Some of the Dixie Cups. Other group members. Though some of the pointer sisters in they also. You know. Cherry apart and different things you do. If does kind of a fair relationship within the grew. But as I said, it's like a family you know everybody have cousins and uncle and all that stuff that you know alkyl Brady Know Oh my God you know lose lose. People in your family that are the way they are anything with groups. It's the same things. You know. Family Ben that have different opinions I guess you could say was that though part of flows issues though. That was like after the fact I, say this because of what's going on with the metoo movement of that nature flowing a She was abused when she was fourteen years old and that really disrupted her in terms of her life. I mean ensured SORTA destroy her and if you talk to anyone who has had that happened to them. So, even though we became famous and I know I have maybe Diane built as laws we're going to get over author hurt and pain fame visit we make money whichever though he's great things but if it's not taken care of inside people still snow it just It really destroys your inside and so when we started having our issues. On the road and traveling and record a elite here, they'll those type everything I would say probably bother flow. She took it to her so she was never able to deal with certain things there for his I dealt with that. Still I, mean I wasn't happy about everything you know but I was able to deal with because they have critical up waving and commonsense was stopping. Our family always taught us. You know. So I was I was more level in terms of dealing with whatever life story at us at all of us even Diane I mean I'm sure it was not easy for her you know being apart from us so. She came from a really wonderful family. Good of rain. had other things issues and they've bothered her so she was was not able to cope with everything. Now I'm very happy about this me too where women are coming out boys coming out people coming out and saying this happened to me when was young and you know. I was not able to say anything and no one ever helped me kind of well, it was close. Because she never was able to get treatment for it or talk to anybody about. Lawyers WHO In the private. To coach through you know if. You know if you got someone that was good but getting the professional, that was naive or something that was considered in fact, hit those things thrown everywhere they couldn't talk about it. So you know it was very difficult for flow because of that and no one else and Montana even knew about it. You know. So late in the situation because she just being you know we're hard to deal with because she. Was Wrong and she was telling you know get around as she was that kind of girl. Review. No. She would often have deal come back like that. You string me as someone who's very patient and kind of a peacekeeper. That's that's good. To be. been outspoken and I guess because I was brought up at an only child. I was alone a lot because my uncle, my mom and dad. They worse I was alone a lot and I was you know I was just accustomed to being really enthralled with Bacon things on my own and and then when my mom she too was a kind of a very peaceful I am so learned from her you know about kindness and not job going. Going off you're you're you're you know Is that when you go crazy. So. I learned how to be and then with the mcgrew flowing Dan, they were too strong individuals to be the middle. are sort of like kind of balancing everything off but. I actually. Fighter. But I'm. Peaceful fighter. Let's put it that way. I've been to a live in my life but I know how to deal look for the silver lining in everything I don't have a smile all the time I'm always happy I mean. For people I know, but I have two people. So one part of me is very quiet is the other part is the fires I if I can find on the privates, you know what I mean. But it takes a lot to get there but I'm I'm. Hoping that I can kind of of you know whatever you say, how do what I? Say you wait till my time I I'll take care. When we go into into the ground, I remember saying her. Your children left out me there and I and just GonNa Take Yoga. So I. You know that's one of the things that I'm doing with this us down for her I really want to get that stamp I feel that she deserved it supremes I mean we didn't give John Lennon and some people like while another country US downs I think that you know here in America they get one brings. You say you're a pisces are you have you done? Had your chart done in all that? In the seventies I was so into all levitated idea still yoga. Imitated. Get Auto. fluted in the air. On your mind you're not. Getting to the floor back there later. So yeah, you. desma Terry, and you know so I mean I. I was totally into I. Mean I still believe that married Alito my aunt was real. As I'll never do that again. Anyway that's another story to show you how far hours into the forest oaks. Those. A great because they're very organized. Okay. My best assisted Mazel Becky, what is? Her. And she she was so organized. That's what I need in my life organization I wanted but I can't do it myself I'm so unorganized. Organized. So they're they're the best people for me. Aquarius really great. I I can tell you everything. Virgo. Vertical. Less than she did. My wife wouldn't agree that I'm that organized though we'll see when when you married as a whole different thing. So the seventy S. I WANNA talk to you about the seventies because. It seems to me the seventies. Good things happened after Diana left the group. You did very well, you had a string of singles that was pretty impressive. L.. Anthony. Birdsong. So thrilled because Mississippi boy actually found James. Milk. and. I was at a time when I do know if what I was doing after flow and Diane when all aware like center myself will do carry on because you know it was the three of us. So it was a big decision for me to to make to continue. Very broad, Alia I immediately knew that okay I'm GonNa continue and celebrate saw replace glow.

"How what kind of steps should I take to do this? Who THAT WAS GONNA Jim? Yeah how can I choose books? The how do I get? Some people and I will mention I. Actually this is all fresh in my mind because I just wrote a guide that will be available. That literally walks through all the steps that that Kinda hold your hand through it but what I do encourage parents to start with is kind of a vision for book club because that's really going to kind of affect things like one of my goals was friends for my seventh grade daughter so for me. I wanted to invite girls her age to club. This wasn't a families you know. Bring all the ages together which I think would be brilliant and I've seen people do that. But you Kinda need to know your goals. So who are you looking to include a few multi age kids to all come together? Are you looking for specifically friends for a certain age in your house? You know that Kinda thing and kind of have an idea. Is this GonNa meet once a month? You know that kind of stuff so that you can start extending some invitations and I would tell parents who made here feeling a little intimidated by it. You know. Just start with one or two other France. It doesn't have to be a group of ten immediately. It can just like minded. It can slowly grow along the way and once you have an idea of what you WanNa do and who might be involved. I started with two friends. And kinda plan with them and then we extended the invitation out to others so we had already picked titles. But when you're looking for books again oh my gosh. We're home schoolers. We know that there's just too much lurch than you could ever read in your lifetime but we used What was dictated by our curriculum? So that actually worked pretty simply for us that we for the most part were picking books that went with our curriculum. That year occasionally veered off for something fun like the hunger games or something to to really kick off with a great party at the start of the year but I've had friends who they picked like two titles for each month and they let the kids vote so the parents were having a little control but the kids also felt like they kind of had a little control so like if you want to read science fiction you know put out there to different science fiction books and let them vote on which one they wanted to read and they did that. That the kickoff meeting so there's lots of places that parents can find book title ideas. Ask Your Librarian. I mean you know. There's lots of great options out there to be able to pick your titles and then you're going to decide whether your friends you know. How often do you WANNA meet? Where do you WANNA meet? We rotated houses but I also included. Don't forget about like alternative locations. There were times we met on a picnic blanket outside of a museum and then we actually toured a museum that the display fit what we read about in the book. We one time just being honest all the MOMS were tired. Nobody really felt like planning and we met at starbucks over Frappuccino and the girls loved it so I think having that nice variety also helps but having kind of an idea. The beginning of mapping out at least who's in charge of each month then they can be thinking about their location is their month gets closer. Okay so what I'm hearing you say and what I want to just really emphasize for people is a party a celebration. That's more like a party. A couple of times a year is fun or even once a quarter is fun or God. Love you if you WANNA do it. Once months to it. It does not have to be that way every single month. And so You're you're probably not going to be able to maintain that amount of intensity and excitement every single month so those off months where you're just meeting at a coffee shop or even meeting at someone's House and having dinner or having dessert or you know whatever it is you want to do and just discussing the book that is more than enough and so when we're talking about doing a book club we're not talking about maintaining the same level of Celebration all the time. Absolutely you you'll find your own rhythm as you're going so yeah I think that's that's a great idea all right. So what about the mom? Who's like I love these ideas? But you know I got a I got a toddler here or a why you know. I have a bunch of kids and they. They go across a wide range of ages. Or you know. We're not getting out into doing book club. We kind of need to stay. A little more insulated. But I like the idea of doing some of this stuff in my morning time. So what suggestions do you have for the mom who wants to do this with her kids but worries it's too much to take on and she wants to keep it closer to home? Yeah I I think that is actually an excellent idea and morning. Time is a wonderful place to do it because for a lot of us. That's when we're reading a good read aloud book worse diving into literature with our kids in morning time super for me. We've actually done this in our morning time. We did this with Wednesday wars. Is I like to pull a little idea. Maybe once a week that celebrates the book in our morning time just as a family so for example in Wednesday. Wars Hauling Hood is his name. He has to dust the chalk. You know the older racers where you have to bang out and the chalk he bang out Machaca racers and he was doing it outside and the chalk dust went up and in the window the classroom and it sprinkled on top of all the these cream puffs that were laying their fresh out of the oven and so of course when they deliver on to the group. That's going to eat. The cream puffs their chalky. And they're nasty so what? I did mornings just the night before I went out to the bakery at the grocery store and I got some cream puffs and I put a little sprinkled sugar on them and the next day during morning time we enjoyed cream puffs with powdered sugar on them. Quote Unquote Chalk. Dust as we were reading book and it was simple when I put on the little tin from the bakery or from the grocery store I put Goldman's bakery instead. I just put a little sign on it and that was the bakery in the book so it was just a simple way to celebrate the book. We're reading in the morning. Have a fun time together. But it didn't have to be something huge an involved okay so when you first started telling this story which I think is a fabulous story and a wonderful thing to do. I was like you were like the night before. I'm like. Oh my gosh. She's going to tell me she's such may cream puffs. I love that I went out to the grocery one thing I don't do is bake sure there's people out there who bay cream puffs into a great absolutely but I would like to invite them to my book club. Yea We'll plan it is. They will the cream puffs but I you know I mean seriously. That's all it takes to go out and buy it's okay to buy the already may be and honestly the and that's what gave him the idea for the guides. The hard part I mean we have so many things going on. And as you know if you've got a toddler and a baby you there is not always the brain space to think ahead. Oh I should get cream puffs that will be really fun but if you have a guy that has all the ideas in it for you for the month you know all you have to do is look through like oh. I could handle these three this career. Yeah and then do one a week during your book club time. You're not book club your morning time. Yeah and so I could like my brain is erling here. I could see you know having like book club Fridays in morning. Time where you're going to whatever you read aloud as you're going to Do one of the activities from the guides. Because I'm all about getting the guides and not doing this stuff like making it up on my old. That's just too much work So thank you Mary. And and serving like one of the food items. Yes you know. There are so many food.

The Mary and I have been online for a while. We were just talking about the fact that we have not got to meet in person yet. No but it's going to happen. Yes yes definitely going to happen before too much longer. It was supposed to happen this year. But we're not talking about that. So many things were supposed to happen. Yeah we're we're just not even going there. We're GonNa talk about good happy things today. So speaking of good happy things start off by telling me a little bit about your family and your home school. Alright my husband and I we live in Raleigh North Carolina. We've been here for few years now. It's a delightful place to home school and we have four children. My oldest have two girls that are seventeen and fifteen and then I have two boys who are thirteen and ten and with my oldest this year actually doing a little door. Roman in college. This is a year that I have technically kids ranging from college to Elementary School while. Yeah it's it's been interesting and it's our last year with an elementary score to so you're you're entering into this transitionary phase in your home school where you're you're going into Territory that you just haven't ever been in before my oldest poor thing. She's always teach me new things. Yeah I have one of those guinea pigs myself. I guess we all do okay. So have you guys home schooled from the very beginning? We Have Oakley only child of mine. Who has any experience? Schooling is my second child. Who was there for seven or eight days this actually at the start of this year but decided that home school was the better place for her.

That's so important. Well I guess I for the obvious reason. That is just fun and doesn't want to have a little fun so to me you know in this homeschooling journey with my family. I figured if we if we weren't having some fun if we weren't enjoying it then it was going to be a rough ride so even though every moment kit and be fun I mean. Let's not kid about that. You know every moment every single day is not fun and Games but I did start to find that those fun moments the ones that I kinda sometimes had to be very purposeful about planning are what carried us through the mundane everyday activities when you know. Maybe things weren't quite so fun. Okay can I stop you for a second class interesting to me that you said that because I would have thought that Mary Wilson was spontaneous offhand. But sometimes you know sometimes you have to be planned. So you're telling me you actually do go out of your way to plan fund that it's not all. Oh yes okay. I'm I'm I'm a little bit of a closet type. A to be honest. I don't think people think about me because you know when you see things online and social media. You're seeing the fun that's happening but what a lot of people don't see is behind that what happens. You know ahead of time for me to organize all of that. I mean not everything not a trip to Dunkin donuts but you know adventures and field trips and book clubs and things like that. You know a lot of times. That fun has to be thought out a little bit as part of my planning okay. Because you know I'm a person who is not who does not naturally tend to fine. You know it's not that I'm I don't enjoy fun. I like fund as much as an expert but I you know I think sometimes my daughter my oldest She'll ask me like mom. What's your spirit animal and I'm like I'm pretty sure it's a sloth and that's just me. I'm just not very outgoing and vivacious but I think sometimes have this false idea in my mind that you're either If you're a fun person you're just spontaneously fund all the time in it like you don't even have to think about it or work at it or anything like that. It just happens you know and it's interesting you bring that up. I feel like an and you're talking about this transition time that I'm in when my kids were all little and we were doing everything together. It was a lot easier to be spontaneously fun because it was just me and four little ones who just went around with me all the time and now. I think I'm almost forced to be even more so because I'm balancing so many schedules so if we want to do something fun in our day I wanNA make sure. Certain people are here and that We're not going to get interrupted by you. Know somebody's online class or something else going on so it. It has taken a little more of a planning turn in the last few years for sure. Okay so yeah. This is interesting. This gives me hope like it's completely okay that you don't do it. Yeah Yeah Okay so. This brings me to the other question. That came out of this little conversation. I told you we were going to go all in all kinds of different directions today so you do have a Kid. Now who has dual enrolling? You know so you have been working on a transcript for a number of years you already and then you have a child who you know another one who is following close behind those footsteps. So do you ever feel guilty like you should like? How do you balance this? Oh my gosh I have a kid who has to have these credits these credits these credits with. We need to do something fun. You ever feel Frau healty you know. Yes you know. I feel all the things that we all feel the There's a lot of transition time that really started around her seventh and eighth grade year and has continued and there are so many different things I've had to try One was recognizing and this was very sad on my Mama's heart but recognizing like she was having a lot of her own fun and I could support her in that but she wasn't always part of our fun anymore. It doesn't mean she's never part of our fun but what was fun for her where these mentor ship opportunities. She was taking on jobs and meaning friends at starbucks. And you know things like that so it was hard but I guess it was good practice to start letting them to find their own fun a little bit within our home school because she does have credits to accomplish so there are times. I'm really excited to watch a musical. You know all we're going to watch you know fan of the opera and she's like yeah but I have Spanish work to do and I have been so there. Was this tug of how are we going to make this work to still have family fun but also I was constantly feeling guilty on the flip side that my little one was not having all the fun everyone else had because now I was constantly waiting for everyone else's schedules to work and I had to finally say okay. I'm going to also be allowed to have separate fun. You know good memories interest number two years with my younger ones that my older one just might not be able to come to with me. Which are yeah and I think we can do a whole podcast but Yungas Yelich. Yeah Yeah because I think there are a lot of mommas who are struggling with that one out there so okay. Well one of the ways that Mary has fun in her homeschool. And the reason we're chatting today is this whole idea of celebrating box with Kid Book Clubs and so I know this is a podcast about morning time. And we promised we're GonNa make it relevant but we're also going to spend a little time today talking kind of the all out idea of Celebrating BOOKS WITH WITH KIDS book clubs. So tell me a little bit about where this idea came from. Okay so this again started that Transition Time. My daughters my oldest was in seventh grade. And of course you know. We're homeschool family so we love books. It's a key part of our homeschooling read aloud. Dependent ratings. Were were always into books. And she was getting to the point where. I wanted to dig in deeper. I wanted to do a little more with it but I just couldn't picture her and I sitting there. She was ready to read books. You know that the other kids weren't reading and so I started thinking we'll do a book club. We'll just invite some friends over. And maybe we can all meet at starbucks and discuss the book and that was actually the original idea that we would just invite. You know five or six of her friends Goto coffee shop and discuss literature every month so that she wasn't just sitting at home talking with me but of course it kind of evolved took on a life of its own so when. I I mentioned it to a friend in two or three friends I mentioned to you. They were like absolutely. Let's do this. So we pick some book. Titles and the first one was one of the Hunger Games series books catching.

"Wherever and bought what a week patterns and made our you know our our little dresses. So yeah we did that We I think we may be made to to really good in fact I. I'm looking here at one at this. Little Post Card is a little like the boys baseball cards. They just have and always on this and I think that out that we've made those. I'm sure so. Yeah so that was something we did and as I said I was definitely much better than I did it. Hey guys it's bobby bones. I host Bobby Jones show and I'm pretty much always sleepy because I wake up at three o'clock in the morning a couple of hours later I get on my friends together. We get into a room and we do a radio show. We are live. We tell our stories we try to find as much good in the world that we possibly can and we look through the news of the day that you'll care about also your favorite country. Artists are always stopping by hang out and share their lives and music too. So wake up with a bunch of my friends. I Ninety eight point seven. W M Z Q in Washington DC or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. So you all came to with your own personal sense of style but you also write in the book. How motown really gave you all an education how to become a star and you talk about one woman in particular former model. Mrs Maxine Powell Miss. Mary can you tell us about how what her role was? And assisting with kind of this transformation that they had planned for you motown motown records was really one of the great companies because they offered us so much in terms of not only just recording music but they had Department called Artists Development and then in artist development program. They had several people who had been actually professional in their trade. So one was Mr Moore was king and he. He was a big band leader. Who had retired so he taught him harmony and things that May to our song we had Charlie Atkins who had been evolved Ville Banda and Honey and cold people call with his partner. Then of course there was miss maxine Powell who had been a model and had her own modeling in Detroit so she and Charlie Atkins were the ones who really gave us what we need in terms of of being professional and how to look in public. So what happened was this power would teach us not so much about etiquette because she said you should learn how to use them for at home. You know I'm not hitting back but I'm I'm sure I knew how to to have interview early to know your interview back. She said to us once you girls just diamonds in the rough and we're here to Polish. So she was that type of person like the Hollywood studios when they trained and taught there All the people the wonderful people so they talked them this so we had that same type of training at motown and that's really what what Mrs Foul kind of taught us how to to sit in on a stool and give an interview and even the sometimes now on the television mini females are anchorwomen now. And they'll sit on stools in their legs shoes on and beautiful addresses addresses and they have two legs all kinds of and this is very early on when you choose your your Mama used to tell this as well keeping these together you know but your legs it should be very crossed at the ankles and if you go into cross a map at the neath and make sure that when you do that there you need close together. Those are the things taught us how to get in and out of limousine gracefully And these are all things that we would talk when we were sixteen years old at motown records so those type of things that you know we we learned in the artist Development Department. That's what it was called and in these kind of early years was there. Were you all still shopping? And buying your own clothes or was There's something like a stylist who is helping you at this point when we first started we. Actually we're our own stylus. Act Everything everything. We Walk Pretty much. We we shop them both them at either facts that avenues some small boutiques they had in Detroit We didn't actually start wearing couture gowns that designers made for us until we started doing major. Tv shows that was probably nine hundred. Sixty five. And then on these various designers. That's the studios at that. And those days had their own designers there so We you know they would come to us and bring these beautiful designer pictures there and sketches and boy. Wow that's when we started actually You know wearing more mature gown. Oh my gosh. And your book is Chock Full of these incredibly beautiful incredibly beautiful ensembles. The craftsmanship was really great. Yes it's that's so great because the designers that were used were also designers not they didn't just designed for TV. They designed for for the movie theaters and so they were really you know they knew what they were doing in in the book what. I tried to do as well and Supreme Glamour. I tried to do was to give a close up. Look at some of the gowns and show how intricate it was. I mean there were many many artisans who created this bead work and a lot of them came from Europe and some of the women have passed on now but there are couple. Who's still alive and I actually had a chance to interview them. But if you'll go on paid is ninety eight. There's a close up of the One of our gown..

"Group until recording their very last studio album in nineteen seventy six from their miss. Mary took it upon herself to person. Serve the Supreme Sartorial Legacy her collection of the group's stunning ensembles is the foundation of this book and we are so honored that she has agreed to join us today. Miss Mary welcome to dressed and we are super excited to have Miss Mary Wilson with US. Today Miss Mary. Welcome to dressed. Thank you so much and I'm glad to be with you. Yeah of this is truly an honor to have you here today and I have to say I have not been this excited about a book in a very long time. I've I've read a lot of fashion history books. And and this one is is so beautifully written i. It's so beautifully illustrated so many stories so much love and friendship and of course there's so much fashion in this book. It's such a beautiful image to your time in the supremes and the clothing that was part and parcel to that experience. So I'm curious. What inspired you to write this wonderful book. Wow well it was fairly easy because I had already written books about the Supreme Court so therefore you know it was one of the things. My research was not is. It didn't take as long because I have so much research from the other books. And you know writing about the supremes are by argosy and and talking about how much we had accomplished and our career. It was a pleasure to actually sit down and do something not just write about the book but to show pictures and and and the looks and what was behind the singing which was more fashion so it was really a lot of fun sort of demonstrating what we did in not just from recording and the music but how we looked at how we felt when we wore certain gown and all about the gals the gals onto another. Just like we were on to all those years and many of them are in your personal collection cracked. You have I think in the book. There's over twenty four sets of matching onstage ensembles so not just one of the dresses but all three of the dresses. And how did you go about comprising this collection? Well first of all we the Supreme Florence Ballard Donald Ross and I would always travel and when we came home from the road. We'd have to store the gallons and then of course by gowns or designers bring those new county and some of the older gallons that we make perhaps worn on television We would just store them. And they accumulated through throughout all the years right And AS Roma's is no longer in the groove Diane was no longer in the group. And then we had the seventies supremes And I became sort of like the keeper of of everything and the manager of the supremes and all those different things So I yeah. I accumulated the gowns. Because of that and whenever anyone would leave As you know a couple of them did I would end up with all these coun- because no one could take the guy no one can take the gals within the frame as a group Pays for them. And that's how I ended up with the majority of the GALS. Now all of the gals should be in my possession but The reason that I can't tell you how many I have is so many have been not just lost and I won't say stolen. You know things have just disappeared. And then some of the places we had them stored you know. I don't I couldn't figure out where everything was stored inside all these years after the supremes. I have just been trying to recover those downs. That are you know not in my collection but it really is my collection as I said when Florence Diane left everything was left to me. Also just say that even though they were left to me and I had there instead of three sometimes I ended up with just one but all three gallons were upset. Were supposedly with me. And you're still like you said you're actively tracking are able to track some of these pieces down I saw A. I'm not sure what the name of the TV show is. But it was on BBC where this woman found one of your costumes in a garage sale or something of that Lake in London. Well being about it is we've bogged down that Some of the fans have called emailed me. Mira guess what we have we we think a couple of you guys on on Ebay and really so we were trying to get together and email each other and I look at that so a couple of fans actually bought off Ebay and got them for me The ones that you're speaking of in London. The young lady was traveling in I think it was France. And she sold this Sale like a garage. We call them garage sale here there. I think the boot sales or something like that. And so she saw this beautiful gown and She went and she bought it. She didn't realize it was a supreme count so after she bought and she saw the label. It had my name on it. That's when she realized. Wow you know this is. This is This is kind of fantastic and somehow another BBC or someone got in touch with me and told me about the story so we we established my coming over to when I was coming over to England to actually The book was coming out at the time we set up a meeting and we I met her. She came to the state we spoke and she gave me the Gallon Bat. That was really. It was wonderful and it was one of our gals that we were on the Tennessee Williams special However with the stage part about that is that it was only half of the cow because the Gal was a two piece count and had a leotard like a like a bathing suit type top and then it had a skirt that came off and then was a hat to it as well so I don't know where the skirt and the hat is looking for that. Maybe that's surely will show up in the future right and you know there's another set that Really badly outfitting up in the book. I'm not sure what pages on here is a A picture of the pants that when it was food that had a coat a jacket and the pants and it was completely beaded in bugle. Beads and there were three different colors one color with gold. I think Diane's with gold and Cindy in mind were orange and it was all beaded well. The jacket disappeared and disappeared from the designer hacking panels studio so I that that when this and that so I have the pants that but I don't have a jacket so jack ass floating around someplace and it's amazing a lot of times. They ended up being in a exhibit. And so we you know. We know where certain things are. We can't find out who gave them. Yeah so but but the orange jackets have never shown up lose. Maybe someone listening tell you that was not being. I know it was in San Francisco that they disappeared. And we're going to talk a lot more about your beautiful beated ensembles in a minute. But I kind of my pumping we can go back a little bit to the maybe the beginning. You're before you were the supremes you were the high mets yourself flow. Diana and I believe that was when Barbara was still in the group. It no it was actually a barbara was the second person Betty mcglone was the original prime met with us that make the four and betty was a little older than Diane's low and I so She eventually got married very early and we had to replace her. And that's when Barbara Martin came group. Yeah Yeah and and you write a lot about. I mean this is. What's so wonderful about the book as you kind of take us to the beginning and you take us throughout the career trajectory of the supremes But you're right about the these early times you're young. You're fifteen or sixteen and you're hanging around motown hoping for your big break. And that finally comes in nineteen sixty one when you signed with the record label And it's often been said and you write about this. That Berry Gordy and motown took the prime mets and remade them into the supremes. But you talk about this a couple of different times in the book. How you all came to motown with your own unique sense of style and self and a mobile you can tell us a little bit more about where that style came from. Yes when we came there we were already sort of in a stylised moat. The but I give the credit to to Mr Gordy and motown or seeing that. We had a certain different kind of style that we were kind of I. I grew up watching people like Lena. Horne and Dorothy Dandridge and one of my favorite people adores day and so we all kind of wanted to be grown up. I you know what we so. We always dressed up. You know we really really be addressed up and I think people may some people may have even laugh at us because we were so we really weren't trying to be adults and we were clearly very young but yeah so this was something that we did kind of rain to motown our own way of dressing our own idea of what works for us as a group to as well and what was great is that we all. Kinda had the same type of idea of what we wanted to wear so it was really a how can I say I image was our image and we were not remade or we were not made glamorous and yeah you naturally possessed that and I think you write about yourself and Diana actually made a lot of your dresses in these early days. Yes yes yes yes Diane and I well. I won't. Diane actually studied Dress design. I guess I'm saying the right way where she studied but she her school was cast tech in Detroit Michigan and he was more of a college preparatory type of school so they had a lot of different kinds of classes in dress making. And that's what Diane was part of. And so yeah so she. She was really the one who was better at that than I. Because I just Kinda learned how to sew and because we were we were four and A lot of times we have to make our little outfits at home or or my mom had a little sewing machine so you know we did a lot of that just at home but also in our school back then. Education was really great because just generally we had home economics and the guys had Shop so we learned sort of things like that in school anyway died. I got together and decided we. You know we wanted to kind of make our own little outfits and we went to I think is well worth.

A History of Seduction

"Clement. Knox joins US now from London. His new book is called Seduction History from the enlightenment to the present Clement. Thanks for being here so your day job. I want to start there. Because you have a book oriented day job you work as a nonfiction buyer at waterstones which is of course a major British bookstore teen. What's your job like there? What do you do so their tour of managing nonfiction and about two hundred and eighty stores? My job really is just to get the the right books and the right stores. I'm responsible for history philosophy politics Papa. Johns I mean about nine categories overall and so. We do a lot with the publishers booksellers as well. Did you get to pick which categories you're responsible for? No when I got the job I was just assigned and then they'll kind of a reshuffle if he has got a few more categories as well they kind of work perfectly because it more or less alliance with what I'm interested in reading and what I'm interested in writing see you're deciding which books go into waterstone's the chain into which stores and how many copies are ordered exactly that to you. So that's a very powerful position. It's very structured is a very fair how we how we do it and is a constant communication publishers stores and sometimes even the authors as well we very even-handed brushing away and there's no kind of mysterious. What would probably shooter who understand. What's your typical day? Like a lot of meetings a lot of looking at science because a lot of reading of publicity plans and back and forth people. He wants us to buy their. Berko by book or by even more so. Are you living months ahead of time looking at? What are the books coming out this fall? Oh Oh yeah. We're tasked with trying to look as far as possible. So wig about to start. Looking at the timber Tiber November on average would normally thinking three months ahead of the east. And what happened with your book? The decider like we're going to order a hundred thousand copies of seduction. Yeah I I wish it was it by my boss has taken over that completely and utterly redeem. Oh look thing I try and pretend you know having to stay in a total of ignorance about one's own buck. I agree. Yeah but let's talk. Let's talk about your book. This may seem like perhaps a silly question but let's define seduction exactly. How is it action separate from courtship? How is it different from something? Maybe more creepy and less mutual like sexual harassment. Like what is seduction? I think the crucial aspect is selection. It's psychological and fumes kind of like confrontation between the minds and the passion of two different individuals in English law. That was a whole body of law do seduction discussing in some detail and wish would later it was. It came to America with with the mayflower that was developed in an extraordinary way and in those laws there was a distinction made between between rape which is obviously a What is coercive violent and seduction was seen as distinct from rape and she assumed that consent had been obtained that consent was in some way vitiated or somehow degraded by the techniques by which it was one so seduction carry that burden. That somehow someone's being over and perhaps the method used to win them over the Underhand but that's only one definition. There's a whole other definition which would say you know. It's just about courtship and game playing and it's fun and this is dawn which is dawn sexual freedom. Did you focus on that fun? Dance in this book or did you cover the full gamut the way the book is kind of structured is the. There's like a dialectic. Going on and one half of the history of seduction is about people worrying about sexual freedom worrying about things going wrong about the collision desire empower the capacity for abuse and wrongdoing. That is one of the history and the other half is about sexual freedom being this exciting enjoyable thing which which is buried lighthearted and people Is The insurance of the church. Will the government so the book kind of structured around the kind of dichotomy and not conflict between our two years of war sexual freedom is and what that means deduction your subtitle is history from the enlightenment the presidency? You're focusing mostly on the modern era. But let's start just briefly with that premodern era talk about what our earliest ideas of seduction were. Maybe perhaps grounded in with Allah G. And then how that changed as you moved into the Judeo Christian era the reason I start in the enlightenment. There's no because seduction didn't exist before seventeen hundred is because that's when seduction narrative as we understand it was born and the book is about this very powerful strange and modern thing seduction narrative which was basically invented in the eighteen th century and the product of a response to a whole new wave of ideas about the human mind about what we now think of. Feminism will prototype eminem and also about the discovery of sexual freedom as part of the blue celebrating our freedom and the enlightenment and before then you had a situation where sexuality was heavily pleased. It was subject to legal and religious interrogation and you know in America. Of course you had The puritans were very big on sexual policing but also in and the rest of Europe as well and over the course of the eighteenth century that whole value system changed. By the end of the Eighteenth Century Sexual Freedom was for granted and to be cleared. Sexual Freedom for them was not the sexual freedom that we now cherish worry about. That really meant that women go to choose. Who They married. That's where the foundation sexual freedom was not explains basically every Jane austen novel for instance. That is the undependable. The plus. They're out of plenty other novels besides and then more generally a kind of increasingly faraji towards male sexuality in particular so you see the rise of the double standard would be in spectacularly bad behavior of the rates of London and Paris Venice. You say that there were three modes of thought that really gave rise to the modern seduction narrative liberalism materialism and feminism. Let's talk about liberalism for example. How does that bring us? But we consider to be seduction as it is today in John. Look Letter of colouration. He He makes us interesting comment race. Is that basically? Everyone is going to have to look after their own. Their prospects of their own souls so liberalism is no longer going to tell people how to live their lives and what to do and instead they're going to have to have their own moral accounting and if in the religious view if they'd be living badly that we dealt with in the off the world it's not gonNA dealt with by the government and the President and obviously if you think about it back then because up until that point they'd be bathing policing sexuality quite a lot and sexuality was once you're saying okay. Everyone's GonNa look after their own moral well-being and the government's going to step out of it. The second and third order consequence of that include a increasingly hands off attitude towards sexuality and basically people are left to make their own decisions and see how how ends up so. It's not that people sat around in the late seventeenth century and said we're going to invent liberalism and one that includes sexual freedom sexual freedom flowed quite logically from this this view that we're not going to try and make everyone lived where he wants them to and that's because they tried that in Seventeenth Century. Europe and being horrific bloodshed and wars and everything else and they wanted you to move beyond that how it's addiction flow from materialism again because we'll be philosophers like like Locke and hume. They were kind of operating on the assumption that we're living in a godless world and they they were very careful how they frame that and Voltaire as well. Then we're castle how. They framed that because of course you won't read out to be an atheist but once you get to the position where we're saying. Okay they're not angels and devils and there's no Holy Spirit brought in the world and instead it's just individuals with brains achieving reality once you make those leaps you can move from new Ford away from this moralistic view of sexuality and towards an idea and that's like psychological view of reality and that's seduction narrative dramatize is this internal monologue about reason about passionate about desire and not basically the entire genre of the novel possible. And if you read these early novels like Richardson who had discussed at some length. Those books now in the more or less unreadable right ABBA time now. If you're named Pamela centrally forced to read Samuel Richardson so you know it comes with the you've read it that I have read and Shamanov so yes so been down that unfortunate path. To what extent is the history of seduction also a history of power and power dynamics? One way of looking at it is that it's not a matter of about power. One way of looking at it is that in fact sexual freedom is empowering and people who practice sexual freedom or taking control of their lives and our free liberated individuals and not seeing a strain and food since the Enlightenment Henry Fielding Mary Wilson Kroft Plus He Shelley Mary Shelley Khatri at all the way up to the present where people you know saying well. People shouldn't be telling me how to live my life. So I'm not I'm not part of it. Basically rejects the idea that seduction is about power and it says actually selections about about freedom and choice but obviously power is a complex thing to discuss. But I root it's about coercion and seduction it about agency. And as soon as our collides with especially in situations where you know that sexual inequality economic inequality there's racial inequality very quickly. We can see how adoption courtship can shade into something daca. You go into issues around race and seduction and in particular America's laws and attitudes around race in the book talk about those parts of the book America in the nineteen. Th Century developed this very extensive body of state laws placing seduction and eventually America how to federal law. The man act which was essentially a seduction Laura in everything but name and in the American south. Clearly it wasn't just a question of the law there were lynchings and these lynchings were often justified by reference to alleged sexual assaults or you know interracial relationships happening not not as true all the way up to an until so. It's not just that was seduction literature. Racial is clearly that was a very serious and horrifying epidemic of racial violence. Often had a sexual subtext. But in the case of the laws the laws designed to empower kind of racial scrutiny of sexual relationships and the mind acts was used to in California was used to prosecute lots of Japanese immigrants who had interracial relationships in the northeast and the Midwest where there were lots of Jewish immigrants or Polish German immigrants. It was used to kind of put further scrutiny communities and then the story. I tell about Joe Johnson who was the first black heavyweight champion of the world it was used to basically hound this man who they couldn't lynch or there were several attempts to do so until they tried to to get him in the courts. Did You keep the book focused on heterosexual seduction or do you cover sex relationships as well? I mentioned overseeing the enlightenment though. Is this on Abrasion of sexual freedom. I should have a code of that. Which obviously it was a celebration of heterosexual. Freedom of sexual freedom was not tackled until the nineteen sixties and seventies and beyond. So I do keep a focus on on heterosexual relationships but the simple reason is that that's deduction narrative of itself was born about this new idea of celebrating sexual freedom without sexual freedom did not include the same sex and curious about the origin of this book. Like is this something that you began before you were at waterstones is the nonfiction or a one of the nonfiction buyers or did this kind of evolve. Why hasn't anyone written about this? And getting all these other books about these other things but there's no good history of seduction. The funniest seed of this book was what I was living in America just finished Grad School in DC. And I was just reading novels like dangerous liaisons and a hero of our time and I kind of kept on coming across this theme of the Seduction Narrative. And it just wouldn't go away and it kind of knew it away me for several years and I kind of this whole history of the seduction laws which I find well fascinating and weird and then of course in in our own time. A lot of things have happened. The rise of the pick up this online dating or the rest of it. I had this of intuition that there was a story And it was the story larger than just what was going on now that it had a history and yeah. I was pretty much convinced that every day. Open the newspaper and someone in Britain the book but they never did give it a go. Well this segment is going up on Valentine's Day so it feels appropriate to ask you about your favorites seduction narrative. Dangerous liaisons novel is is is absolutely amazing. I would recommend twenty one I. It's incredibly that it was actually written two centuries ago and there have been several great adaptions of it and they were to the nineteen eighty s and then those cruel intentions made out of it in the ninety s which I think is fantastic film still. I mentioned briefly a hero of our time by lemon of again. I think everyone should read that book. And it was an incredible and the Russians were really heavily influenced by the English narrative. They will read some Richardson. They'd read Palmer and Clarisa. Bridgeton is name checked in Eugene Oregon. And of course they wrote obsessed with Byron who was a kind of mythical seducer lifetime and so the whole Russian tradition wouldn't really exist without those two figures and he said in London. Tolkien postgame also tolstoy as well all right well. I guess plenty of people to read over Valentine's Day maybe not moves people's chosen activity and this particular day but if if you are alone with book those are the ones to pick up in addition to of course deduction clement.

Greg you know the tune that keeps sticking in my head is an earworm holy cow thoughts and prayers. That's just wow taking taking that phrase we hear after these tragedies of school shootings and mass shootings and turning it into an insidious hook every time. I say I've heard what the drive by truckers can do. I was saying that when you were such a super fan of southern rock opera. I'm like okay. These guys are setting out to write a song as good as powder finger by Neil young and now they've written like a dozen of them Throughout these twelve albums but this album I think is Is is another masterpiece. It is serving what they are calling the wreckage of America in the wake of the current political climate and this deep deep division between red and blue and north and south and urban and rural All of these divisions they're looking for commonalities Asong like heroin win again about missing my friends who died using heroin in a song about babies in cages. That is the title look. There is no hiding where they stand politically But I think it's they're looking at the victims of the current moment of hatreds.

think it's fun to just be reminded of the people that we're from keep on my name to all the Little Whoopi is coming in talk so yes today Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vitamin testified that the White House omitted crucial words and phrases their transcript of you know who's phone call to the Ukraine specifically his claim to Ukrainian presidents landscape that there are recordings of invive discussing corruption in Ukraine there aren't as Leschi mentioning that the company Hunter Biden work for he mentioned by name so what is going on did this is I mean the man is beyond credible is just beyond credible everybody said we want to hear from somebody who heard what so you got it from and now they're still saying and he's saying listen they left some stuff out yeah road writing the Rosemary Woods he's still had to resign in disgrace it it's not gonNa work well I think we shouldn't call the transcript anymore it should just be called a memo kind of like the memo right it's like the bar memo it was a four page memo instead of the Muller report this is just a memo and we always knew because at the very bottom of it it says that it was transcript that it really is just a memo that the call wasn't recorded but I think the party line has always been from the administration that it's a transcript and I don't know if people remember but I call all this because when I read it I noticed that there were these three ellipses dot dot dot dot that's right that dot dot and that because legal documents when you see dot dot dot that means that there's something left out and I noticed with the dot dot dot it said I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine they say crowd streit dot dot dot and it said I guess you have one of your wealthy people dot dot dot why didn't went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it dot dot dot got it so now you have when you look at it reconstructed transcript you have the the the the reconstructed memo you have it hidden on server you have shadow foreign policy and you also have the Republicans saying over and over again that it's the Democrats that are hiding things it's actually the white ally the Lieutenant Carl said here's what happened this is what I heard this is what I'm doing this is what went out yeah I don't understand why that's does everybody comes down well let's let's give you permission Lynch find so now we have it well and this is why we need to have public hearings because there are still a lot of questions like why that was missing from the call why the transcript or whatever you WANNA call it move to another computer classified server But I would also say that Adam Schiff needs to be and careful in the way that I haven't seen it Republicans are complaining that they've been interrupted and questioning the happening able to ask the people that are who have been questioned should be asked that question when they get around all of the they should they should be well no if you come out and you've testified this is it what they should be saying is right someone keep you from answering Republican because you know we're we're not seeing it so we don't we don't get you know but they weren't in the room I they pretended they would know until we actually see this publicly not going to have a clear I would like Adam in your moment's to to talk the American people after these hearings when you mentioned Fox News and blast them got to be not just a waste of time but you're hurting what you're trying to do

Let's go with it and that's what has been your that first day that you came to Motown of course I'll never forget it. I remember walking up the steps because we had been with like three other record companies and we had finally realized we should be motel. You know this is where we you belong so when we got the call the Berry was interested in he saw us on the tonight. Show we were in New York recording but we also was on Steve Allen's tonight show back there and he saw he said you know what he was talking to his in our director Mickey Stevenson who we all knew well.

I mean we could we could shine well. We we had a lot of confidence and we knew fairly good speaking of the motown review. I remember during the holidays going down thousands of seeing you perform. What was it like for you all to come home and perform for home folks that was that was thrilling more than exciting you know and especially during those holidays 'cause you got everybody coming school kids and everybody and he was just so much fun. Everything at the beginning was so so much fun. I mean even all the way through will get me wrong but you know how your first time doing this and I I'm doing that is actually amazing we we were so happy and thrilled that we were only able and that we had hit and we knew had hits coming.

One of the finest that I remember is in New York at Carnegie Hall because at that time that was one of the finest kindest and most upgraded concert halls you could be there and that was the first time we had like we had sixteen strings full orchestra and so we was absolutely totally excited and I think that we did one of our specials that I mean it was so good we all had tears and they gave just a couple of standing ovations and I never forget it because going to Carnegie.

Friendly Competition are sooner was filling competition for our meal groups at Motown. How can I can tell you about it and it's still exists 'cause tops and temps. We've been travelling together. We've been travelled together since motown twenty. Five and people people still like to see that and his cup on stage is really competitive. I mean casino. If you not at your best you can get shot down that night. It's just there's there's no because they fabulous group man and I think they feel the same way so the audience really gets the best out of both but his great the competition is friendly but it is competitive when it comes to the singing and you know and doing the music but aside from that would the greatest friends you know we eat together a lot and we played together in a lot. You know we hang out together a lot and it's just like it's just like we were still still one family. Can you put an award what has kept Motown Music at the pinnacle of People's attention for going on on fifty sixty years I wish I could. I wish I could answer that with great knowledge. I can only say that it's music music that they fell in love with and they just will not let it go.

She was on most of those songs and she was supreme. She had signed as a supreme so there were four four supremes people are not aware that what was it like that first time you are when studio to record the first time we went into the studio first of but we recorded not at Motown I we recorded lupine records I and that was a record label that was with Wilson Pickett was on it and the Falcons and all the old floyd any floyd was there so we actually act up a lot of those recordings with Eddie Floyd Roy but we didn't really care for the company that much could because we had already seen a motel and we finally recorded. I want a guy that was our first recording. We were so we were like just absolutely. I can't even say happy as it were. You know here's what I tell a lot of people who've with three little black girls who dare to dream at a time when dreams come true for black people we really were and I don't think we had in our minds we wanted to be a stars wasn't what people want in those days. We just wanted to sing and we found each other and we were happy. We knew that this was special and so we did dare to dream in when we recorded that record I one guy it changed my life because I knew then while this is something very special. Now you had an opportunity to attend college but I'll you thought about during our families they they allowed us to sing because it gave a gave us something to do. We were girls pretty not not on the street running. Wild you know so parents wanted to protect your say. Oh with this seem safe so they can do however when it came time to graduate from high school they didn't they aide. They thought we were going to go on and get a job or go to college colleagues. I would get a job too and I remember telling any Holland. I say hey we don't get correct. We're going to have to go to college. He says well we're GONNA get a hit record and that's when they start really being serious about us and knowing that we were serious and they came with our first hit hit record but it was about our eighth ninth release. I should say that tells about that that motown experience the motown experience for us came after the fat. I Wanna I say that three of us. If you know the four primaries and the three supremes we came from families that taught us that when you walk out this door you represent the black community we always had the great example of being a woman being a not just a warm about being a female who you know. We knew you what we were supposed to do. In life so blackness for us was very very important and so at motown. We were very fortunate that when we walked into their door they recognize that we were not just three three girls who wanted to be singers. We really were special ladies and it had come from our background from our families families so we will when we walked motown door. They recognize that we were a little special you know and thank. God the they decided to start this artist Development Matt Program we were very fortunate to go there and have a our mentor Mrs Maxine Powell who taught us. She says I'm not an etiquette teacher now. Now I'm finishing. I teach you how is all inside how beautiful inside and she always beautiful people and this. You told us one day you you'RE GONNA sing before kings and Queens now we only sixteen years old okay but anyway we eventually we started singing before kings and Queens hanging out with them and so you know it showed us is that it didn't just happen. You know to me it was we were chosen. We were chosen to do what we did and I think I'm very proud of it. I spoke with Whoopie Gobert lately and she wrote an opening to my next book Supreme Glamorous all about the supremes gowns and she said that when she was young and she's always on take on TV three beautiful black women it gave her something to aspire to so you know it was it for me is something I'm. I'm very proud of it. You know I don't take it lightly. If I had not been a supreme I would have wanted to be but I want Mary. Wilson founding member of the Supreme.

You bet i am your first quote is from the national weather service. Alabama will not see any impact from doria doria. That was a tweet in response to who's incorrect weather warning. I believe it was a sharpie drawing from president trump. That's right president trump for whatever reason the president has been insisting hurricane doreen was headed for alabama which wasn't and saying that he got that information for meteorologists which he didn't so on wednesday he held up a national weather service map showing the path of dory and towards alabama alabama but it was a photo shop. Actually it wasn't even a photoshop. It was a sharpie shop. He drew on it with a sharpie. He didn't even use has the same color. It was like a kid changing his grade from an f. to a. b. With a crayon the did you all see it and it was in such a bad fakey just sharpie don this little extra bubble at the end of it at the end of the hurricane path as if a florida doesn't look perverted enough <hes> he was supposed to be a thought bubble like you are like a word like he was gonna if he had finished it alabama talking like us. Does anybody know why he did that. I mean the only thing i can think of is. He has some sort of investment in sharpy because we've used the word sharpie so much. That's very smart. I think you're right because he's made a couple of gaps with the sharpy right yeah. Didn't he change his weight on his physical from three thirty two to thirty. Oh yeah sharpie trump was so mad about this on thursday. He took to twitter calling the hurricane sleepy dorian saying a lot of people who say and this is the weakest hurricane ever personally. I'm doing a much better job. Destroying american city okay in your next quote comes from england england not a good start boris. That was a member of britain's labour party reacting to who's pretty terrible week. That would be you. Prime minister boris johnson very that's right british prime minister boris johnson had a bad bad week. He lost four out of four votes. He lost his majority with one member of parliament actually getting up and leaving his party while he was speaking and his brother retired from government government basically saying he wanted to spend less time with his family because his family was boris johnson then on friday. Donald trump emailed him a map showing the hurricane doreen was headed right his way. The whole i actually was was sort of glued to c. Span watching some of these proceedings. It's it's so one has ever been glued to see it was crazy. It was actually very dramatic the band is there anything that we're missing about this. I mean the unique position this week of being embarrassed by the country. I live in and the country. I come from. I know it's a horrible place to be. It's not what a rock and a hard place. It's like mud and like more mud odd. Just wearing like flip flops like i already like a borderline always embarrassed to be british anyway as just like in the blood they give it to you what birth but then it's been building to the point now whenever i hear a british boys unlike n._p._r. In the mornings i just slowly. I don't even do it quickly. I just slowly turn it down at knowing no no no no no why don't talk anymore. The myself and i'm like all right he in here's your last quote we that was bill going down the slide now that adults are allowed to participate eight in their very own what that's three cents.
