Kristen Davis, ‘Sex and the City’ Writers, Influencers Dish on Show’s Fashion, Celebs

After 20 years, “Sex and the City” continues to be the fashion gift that keeps on giving. Over the weekend, new tidbits about some of the show’s greatest designer hits emerged when Kristen Davis turned out to be the surprise guest at a fan event cohosted by The Standard Hollywood and popular Instagram account Every Outfit on Sex and the City (@everyoutfitonSATC). Since its founding by writer/director Lauren Garroni and fashion professional Chelsea Fairless two years ago, the account has found half-a-million followers who still relish dissecting everything that Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha wore during the show’s seven seasons on HBO.
Those include Davis and Parker, who have weighed in on some of the posts. The crowd cheered as Garroni and Fairless welcomed Davis to the pool deck of the West Hollywood hotel, where parts of the popular two-part Los Angeles story arc were filmed. Davis was wearing the Prada lipstick skirt she wore on an early SATC episode, along with a sparkly pair of Sarah Jessica Parker pumps “because I wanted to have Sarah with us.”
“I had seen an ad for the skirt and called [show costume designer] Pat Field and said, “I have to have that

Ex-NBA Player Glen “Big Baby” Davis Arrested For Selling Hella Weed

San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Five

Source: Stephen Dunn / Getty

Ex-NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis was arrested for allegedly selling a gang of weed out of a hotel room. The former NBA champion got popped at a Hampton Inn in Maryland. 

Per ABC Baltimore, Big Baby actually got pinched last month and that was the start of the struggle.

According to court records, the hotel owner smelled marijuana coming from Davis’ room on February 7th.

When the owner knocked on room 208, someone inside the room told him to “F*@# off!”

Aberdeen police then responded to the hotel and Davis gave signed consent to search his room

“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” said Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber, “In addition to that there was a brief case that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”

The ledger was of names of people of who owed money along with baggies for individual packaging of a quarter pound of marijuana.

The strains were called “Sour D” and “Berry,” all from a Los Angeles wholesaler court records show Davis told police he was in business with.

Davis was eventually charged with seven counts of drug possession and distribution, weeks later.

Big Baby says he is innocent and is due back in court next month. His last NBA action was for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2015.

Since the news is out, Big Baby posted a response. See on the flip (Note: It didn’t really help his cause). But the Popeye’s did look delicious.

Comedy superstar Chris Rock (Lethal Weapon 4, New Jack City, Saturday Night Live) stars in CB4, an off-the-hook, hilarious look at the world of Gangsta Rap. Rock plays Albert, a.k.a. MC Gusto, leader of the hot new rap group CB4 (short for "Cell Block 4"). The trio of CB4 – MC Gusto, Stab Master Arson (Deezer D) and Dead Mik (Allen Payne), are living large as their hardcore albums blow up the charts. Their rise to fame takes an unfortunate turn when they're caught up as subjects of a documentary by corny filmmaker A. White (Chris Elliott) and victims of a political campaign by Republican Virgil Robinson (Phil Hartman). And when the reality hits the streets that these cats are just three middle-class kids posing as ex-con thugs, their world of money, power and respect takes a beat down in the most embarrassing and ludicrous ways. This outrageous rapumentary is packed with cameos by real O.G. rap legends like Ice-T, Flavor Flav, and Easy E, and studded with special guest appearances by Tommy Davidson, Halle Berry and Shaquille O'Neal. CB4 is a hysterical stroll through the streets of hard-core hip-hop.

In LION, five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train travelling away from his home and family. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. Somehow he survives living on the streets, escaping all sorts of terrors and close calls in the process, before ending up in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven. Eventually Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple, and finds love and security as he grows up in Hobart. Not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, he suppresses his past, his emotional need for reunification, and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning. With just a small store of memories, and the help of a new technology called Google Earth, Saroo embarks on one of the greatest needle-in-a-haystack quests of modern times.

Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Mr. Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. "Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style, and by the end has everyone on the edge of their seats, gripped by his haunting message," said Guggenheim. An Inconvenient Truth is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry to protect the one earth we all share. "It is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly, and wisely," said Gore.

Kate Winslet and Galvin Scott Davis Create a Beautiful Daisy Chain

Novelist Theodore Dreiser once said “Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail.” Galvin Scott Davis’ timeless new film, Daisy Chain, a five minute animated short narrated by Academy Award winning actress Kate Winslet, was born from misery and travail, and is the most stirring recent example of art communicating the subject of anti-bullying. Appropriately, the Tim Burton-esque, hand-drawn Daisy Chain has been released during National Bullying Prevention Month, and in its first week has been downloaded 100,000 times. Proof that art is often the best way to speak to the masses.

Daisy Chain (Courtesy of Screen Australia)

Daisy Chain was created by Australian writer/director Galvin Scott Davis after his nine year old son was bullied. He told his son “Bullying is for people with no imagination.” Davis’ son invited the bully, both comic book fans, to create a comic book with him and a friendship grew. A passionate storyteller (as well as director of Sydney-based digital media firm, http://www.protein-one.com/) Davis began developing Dandelion, an anti-bullying children’s book and app that went on to become a top-seller on iTunes, and winner of several awards. Davis then teamed up with Screen Australia to create the whimsical Daisy Chain, about a little girl named Buttercup bullied by older girls in a playground.

Davis’ chance meeting with actress Kate Winslet on the set of 1996’s film Hamlet planted a seed that nearly twenty years later grew into a beautiful collaboration.

Davis says

We were both being costumed for Hamlet and Kate had asked if I wanted a career as an actor. I said, ‘I want to tell stories. I want to write and direct.’ Then she said, ‘If I have one piece of advice I can give you, it’s to never give up.’

Winslet was Davis’ first and only choice to narrate Daisy Chain, and he even put the project on hold for a full year until she was available. Because as he notes “there was no better voice.”

His patience paid off. When Winslet read about the project, it spoke to her as a mother. The actress has also admitted that bullies made fun of her appearance growing up. As an adult, she has made it her mission to help build self-confidence in others. Davis was right. There was no better voice for Daisy Chain.

A moment from Daisy Chain (Courtesy of Screen Australia)
2015-10-29-1446089089-4477497-daisychain.png

Davis says the hope is to see Daisy Chain (which is now also an illustrated children’s book, App, and character figurines) grow into an animated feature film in the vein of Coraline. A percentage of the proceeds from the Daisy Chain products are split between three international anti-bullying organizations: U.S. based Pacer, Bully Zero Australia Foundation and the U.K’s Anti-Bullying Alliance.

Daisy Chain’s animation was orchestrated by Frederick Venet, illustrations by Anthony Ishinjerro, and music composed by Hylton Mowday.

Vatican: Pope’s Meeting With Kim Davis ‘Not A Form Of Support’

 VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican said Friday that Pope Francis’ meeting with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who went to jail for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, “should not be considered a form of support of her position.”

After days of confusion, the Vatican issued a statement Friday clarifying Francis’ Sept. 24 meeting with Davis, an Apostolic Christian who has become a focal point in the gay marriage debate in the U.S.

In a statement, the Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said Francis met with “several dozen” people at the Vatican’s embassy just before leaving Washington for New York.

Lombardi said such meetings are due to the pope’s “kindness and availability” and that the pope only really had one “audience” with former students and his family members.

“The pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position in all of its particular and complex aspects,” Lombardi said.

Davis, a Rowan County, Kentucky clerk, spent five days in jail for defying a series of federal court orders to issue same-sex marriage licenses. She said earlier this week that she and her husband met briefly with the pope at the Vatican’s nunciature in Washington and that he encouraged her to “stay strong.”

The audience sent shockwaves through the U.S. church, prompting questions about whether the pope had been duped into meeting with her and whether he truly knew the details of her case, which has polarized the country.

Initially the Vatican only reluctantly confirmed the meeting but offered no comment.

On Friday, Lombardi issued a fuller statement to “contribute to an objective understanding of what transpired.”

Francis did not focus on the debate over same-sex marriage during his visit last week. As he left the country, he told reporters who inquired that he did not know Davis’ case in detail, but he defended conscientious objection as a human right.

“It is a right. And if a person does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right,” Francis said.

The Totally Real Transcript Of Kim Davis’ Meeting With Pope Francis

 

Pope Francis: My child, it is a blessing to meet you.

Kim Davis: [Bawling, with arms raised above head] POPE FRANCIS! I can’t tell you how excited I am to meet you. I went to Dress Barn and everything! [Spinning, faster and faster]

PF: Please. Stop spinning, my child. I wanted to say that I applaud your courage and I urge you to keep fighting for you religious beliefs.

KD: I KNEW you were on my side, Pope Francis! The whole time I was denying gay people marriage licenses I kept sayin’, “Pope Francis wouldn’t let these gays get married! Pope Francis wouldn’t let them ruin the sanctity of marriage! If you agree with Pope Francis then you agree with me! Pope Francis and I think they’ll all burn in hell!”

PF: Wow. OK. Kim, my child, I agree that it is important to fight for what you believe. But homosexuals are people too. We should not hate them. Also, please never speak for me. 

KD: I think you mean homosexuals are people who spit in the face of God and will be sent to the Clay Aiken depths of hell for their sins, right?

PF: We should love —

KD: No, but that’s correct though?

PF: What’s important is – 

KD: Excuse me, they’re going to hell for being gay? Yes or No?

PF: The job of the Church is to —

KD: YES OR NO!?

PF: Yes, that is what the Church believes.

KD: I KNEW IT! POPE FRANCIS AGREES WITH ME! WAIT TILL I TELL THE NEWS THAT I MET THE POPE AND HE TOLD ME I WAS RIGHT! SHIT, POPE FRANCIS YOU KEEP SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE LIKE THIS I’M GONNA HAVE TO GET DIVORCED FOR THE FOURTH TIME AND SHACK UP WITH YOU! 

PF: … If only I was allowed to wed! OK, well, I’m sure I have a sermon to give so I must be going.

KD: WAIT! Don’t you wanna know what I said at this big rally that Mike Huckabee threw for me when I got outta prison? Yer gonna love this! I grabbed the microphone and I said, “It’s Adam and Eve …”

PF: … not Adam and Steve. 

KD: Not Adam and STEVE! HAHAHAHA

PF: Yes, I hear that joke 12 times a month. [To his aides] Start the car.

KD: HAHAHA, ADAM AND STEVE!

PF: [To his aides] I said start the car.

KD: BECAUSE IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE ADAM AND EVE HAHAHAH, YES! [Voice deepens] YES!

PF: Jesus Christ. GET ME SOME HOLY WATER! [Splashing Kim with holy water] In the name of the father and the son and the holy spirit —

PF: [To aides] WHERE IS THE CAR?!

Kim Davis, Clerk Who Refused To Issue Marriage Licenses To Gay Couples, Claims She Met The Pope

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky clerk who went to jail for defying a federal court’s orders to issue same-sex marriage licenses says she met briefly with the pope during his historic visit to the United States.

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, didn’t deny the encounter took place but said Wednesday in Rome he had no comment on the topic.

Rowan County clerk Kim Davis and her husband met privately with Pope Francis last Thursday afternoon at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., for less than 15 minutes, said her lawyer, Mat Staver.

Davis, an Apostolic Christian, spent five days in jail earlier this month for defying a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In a telephone interview late Tuesday, Staver would not say who initiated the meeting with the pope or how it came to be, though he did say that Vatican officials had inquired about Davis’ situation while she was in jail. He declined to name them.

Davis was in Washington for the Values Voter Summit, where the Family Research Council, which opposes same-sex marriage, presented her with an award for defying the federal judge.

Pope Francis did not focus on the divisive debate over same-sex marriage during his visit last week. As he left the country, he told reporters who inquired that he did not know Davis’ case in detail, but he defended conscientious objection as a human right.

“It is a right. And if a person does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right,” Francis said.

Viola Davis Makes History, Tracy Morgan Makes His Return & ‘Bessie’ Wins At 2015 Emmy Awards (VIDEOS)

(AllHipHop News) It took 67 years, but finally an African-American woman was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. The honor went to Viola Davis for her portrayal of Annalise Keating in ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder.

[ALSO READ: Report: The Percentage Of Black Actors On ABC, NBC & Fox Is Higher Than The National Population]

“‘In my mind, I see a line, and over that line I see green fields and lovely flowers and beautiful white women with their arms stretched out to me over that line. But I can’t seem to get there no how. I can’t seem to get over that line.’ That was Harriet Tubman in the 1800’s,” said Davis during her acceptance speech. “And let me tell you something. The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.”

The night also saw the return to the Emmys for comedian/actor Tracy Morgan. The star of 30 Rock was involved in a serious car accident in 2014 where he suffered numerous injuries. Morgan took the stage at Microsoft Theater to hand out the award for Outstanding Drama Series.

“I missed you guys so much,” Morgan told the crowd as they gave him a standing ovation. “Thanks to my amazing doctors and the support of my family, my beautiful new wife, I’m here… standing on my own two feet.”

Other winners at the 67th annual Emmy Awards included Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black) for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Regina King (American Crime) for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie, and Reg E. Cathey (House of Cards) for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

The HBO film Bessie starring Queen Latifah and Mo’Nique took home the award for Outstanding Television Movie. HBO also won the two biggest awards of the night. Game of Thrones received the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, and Veep was awarded Outstanding Comedy Series.

Kim Davis Asks Appeals Court To Let Her Refuse To Issue Marriage Licenses

MOREHEAD, Ky., Sept 12 (Reuters) – The county clerk from Kentucky who was jailed after refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples has asked an appeals court to let her continue her stand until a lawsuit against her is decided.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, due back at work Monday after six days behind bars, has said her beliefs as an Apostolic Christian prevent her from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples and her attorneys have said the 49-year-old woman will not violate her conscience when she returns to work.

In her absence, deputy clerks have been issuing licenses and have said they would continue to do so.

Davis was jailed when she refused to comply with U.S. District Judge David Bunning’s order to issue licenses. He ordered her released when the deputy clerks began issuing the licenses.

In a Friday motion filed with the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, Davis’ attorneys asked that she be allowed to continue banning marriage licenses for her entire office until the case is settled.

Davis’ attorneys argued that Bunning’s initial order had only covered couples who were suing her. They said he violated her right to due process during her appeal when he expanded his initial injunction to include any couple legally eligible to marry, the filing says.

She should thus be allowed to continue her ban now that the couples covered under the first order have been issued licenses, the attorneys argue.

In a separate filing on Friday, her attorneys said “this case would be over” if the governor, using the same authority that allowed him to change the certificates to be gender neutral, would simply remove her name from the documents.

Bunning warned Davis in his release order that there would be consequences if she interfered with the issuance of marriage licenses when she returned to work. A deputy clerk has said he will continue to issue licenses.

On Tuesday, Davis walked out of the Carter County Detention Center to a roaring crowd. Her supporters continued protests last week after her release, demanding the firing of any deputy clerks who provide marriage licenses without Davis’s permission.

Her attorneys have said marriage certificates issued without her authority have been void.

The issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Kentucky and other states has become the latest focal point in the long-running debate over gay marriage that has continued even after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June allowed the practice nationwide.

Lawyers For Kim Davis Vow To Appeal Contempt Order

After a legal showdown Thursday that resulted in her incarceration for civil contempt, Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who has made headlines for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, is expected to remain in custody for at least a week as her lawyers plan an appeal.

Addressing members of the media Friday outside the detention facility in Grayson, Kentucky, where Davis is in custody, the chairman of her legal team said she remained “in good spirits” after her first night behind bars.

“Kim Davis slept well last night,” said Liberty Council’s Mat Staver, according to The Washington Post. “She slept with a very good conscience.”

For a civil contempt order to be dissolved, a litigant must simply comply with it, at which point the court could order the litigant’s release. Davis could also resign and end the matter.

But Staver said at the press conference that Davis “has no intention to resign,” and that “she will continue to serve the people of Rowan County as she has done for so many years.” In a recent court filing, Davis’ lawyers contended that it was “factually impossible” for her to comply with an order to issue licenses to same-sex couples.

Deputy clerks in Rowan County began issuing marriage licenses early Friday.

Buzzfeed News reported that at least one of the same-sex couples who received a license on Friday wondered about its validity because Davis’ name didn’t appear on it. According to WLKY, though, both an attorney for Rowan County and lawyers for the same-sex couples who obtained licenses Friday said the documents were valid.

To Davis’ legal team, however, the licenses are “not worth the paper they’re written on,” according to The Courier-Journal, a Kentucky newspaper.

It’s not immediately clear whether Davis’ lawyers will succeed in their challenge to Davis’ incarceration. On Thursday, U.S. District Judge David Bunning declined to certify the contempt order for appeal, and legal precedent or other limits may stand in the lawyers’ way.

According to ABC News, Davis is expected to remain in jail for at least a week as the judge monitors the compliance of Rowan County deputy clerks who have agreed to fill in for her.

The Phony Martyrdom of Kim Davis

Religious fanatic and serial bad dresser, Kim Davis, the County Clerk in Rowan County, is absolutely determined to build a cross and climb onto it so the Religious Right can pretend to have a martyr. No doubt the hate group advising her, Liberty Counsel, told her bigots around the country will send cash and a crowd funding effort will appear in the near future. What good is faux martyrdom if you can’t scam the rubes out of some cash in the process?

Davis, as county clerk, is engaging her personal prejudices by refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. That she claims her bigotry is religiously based is immaterial to whether or not she has to do her job. After her failed appeal to the Supreme Court, she still refuses to do the work for which she is paid. Now she claims she’s to act under “God’s authority” in her personal campaign against gays.

Being in Kentucky, there is no shortage of backwoods yokels lined up to chant Bible verses, sing hymns and engage in other forms of fundamentalist voodoo in support. But, all the incantations and prayers of the world won’t solve the problem Davis created for herself — with the encouragement of her attorney.

Davis concocted a contradictory legal argument. She, a simple woman of little intelligence and less style, claims, “To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience.”

Now, this is just “lying for Jesus,” because it isn’t so. Davis regularly issues marriage licenses in conflict with her definition of Biblical marriage. She is not averse to allowing divorced couples to marry at all. In fact, she is so not averse to it, she collected four husbands over her own unimpressive lifetime. Her sect says divorce is invalid. After all, it’s “one man and one woman FOR LIFE.”

Fundamentalists may have gotten lax on the divorce issue because so many of them are divorced, but the typical view is that once married always married, which makes Davis guilty of her third illicit sexual affair with a man not her husband. Just because today’s fundamentalists turn a blind eye to the sin of divorce, and the greater sin of remarriage, it doesn’t change God’s law, and by Kim’s own logic her remarriage is invalid and every license she signs for a divorced local is a violation of “God’s definition of marriage.”

If the state can’t sanction a marriage contrary to God’s will, it can’t sanction her own marriages — all four of them. The God of fundamentalist Neanderthals doesn’t sanction any marriage after divorce, because God opposes divorce.

To invoke “God’s authority” for civil law is simply a Christian form of Sharia law. As much as fundamentalists foam at the mouth over the very fantasy that Sharia law will be imposed in America — an unlikely prospect — they are not at all reluctant to impose a Christian fundamentalist version of the same practice. They aren’t asking for religious freedom to follow “God’s law” as they imagine it; they are demanding the right to force everyone else to live by it as well.

Davis is not seeking equal freedom, or equal rights. She is demanding Courts anoint her religious beliefs as superior to all others. If all she wanted were her religious beliefs, she could satisfy them by simply never getting “gay married,” however she is trying to make sure no one else gets “gay married” in Rowan County either.

The thing about fundamentalist Christianity is it operates on the assumption its adherents have rights superior to those of all others. They assume only their brand of Christianity — a thoroughly American phenomenon and one completely unknown to early Christians — has “religious freedom” and all other sects or beliefs must bow before them.

Joe Davis, Kim’s current husband, says he’s just an “old redneck hillbilly” but his wife is like a biblical prophet. He argues those who support equal rights for gay couples “want us to accept their beliefs and their ways. But they won’t accept our beliefs and our ways.”

He has it very wrong. When people have equal rights, both can have “their beliefs and their ways.” That is what liberty does. Davis and his fellow fundamentalists can refuse to get “gay married” because it violates their beliefs, and gay couples can still happily marry because it doesn’t violate their own. That isn’t what Davis or his wife want. They wish to make sure NO gay couple can have “their way” in Rowan County, and must live according to the conscience of Kim Davis, not according to their own.

Kim Davis and her “advisers” are going to keep building a cross and when finished, she will climb onto it while they get out the hammer and nails. The Religious Right will then point to the spectacle insisting this is the obvious outcome of gay marriage, which really does threaten religious liberty.

Of course, religious liberty is safe! But, the religious privileges fundamentalists demand for themselves alone are not.

GAME OF THRONES meets GRACELING in a new fantasy adventure by bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis. Told in alternating male and female perspectives, THE SHADOW SOUL has been hailed as "an amazing start to a new series that is going to have people of all ages wanting so much more." (Happy Tails & Tales Reviews) When Jinji's home is destroyed, she is left with nowhere to run and no one to run to–until she meets Rhen, a prince chasing rumors that foreign enemies have landed on his shores. Masquerading as a boy, Jinji joins Rhen with vengeance in her heart. But traveling together doesn't mean trusting one another, and both are keeping a deep secret–magic. Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Rhen can pull burning flames into his flesh. But while they struggle to hide the truth, a shadow lurks in the night. An ancient evil has reawakened, and unbeknownst to them, these two unlikely companions hold the key to its defeat. Because their meeting was not coincidence–it was fate. And their story has played out before, in a long forgotten time, an age of myth that is about to be reborn… RAVE REVIEWS for THE SHADOW SOUL! "The writing is flawless. The story and plot line, and plot twists, had me captivated and enamored for the first words. I couldn't put this book down for anything, and I absolutely cannot wait for book two…It's an amazing start to a new series that is going to have people of all ages wanting so much more." – Happy Tails and Tales "One word to describe this book: intense! Everything from the battles, to the secrets, to the descriptions of the characters and scenery, are all incredibly intense. This book had me biting my nails, stomach tided in knots, and completely entranced til the last word." – Desert Rose Reviews "Throughout the story, the stakes were always raised. There was no part that lagged while Davis was telling her story of far off lands, and the drama continued to the very end…To those readers who like fantasy and adventure, or to those who tried to read "A Song of Ice and Fire" but couldn't make it through the first chapter without falling asleep – this could be a series for you." – Pink Fluffy Hearts "The Shadow Soul was positively transportive, left me feeling refreshed, and renewed my faith in symbolism, imagery, and the importance of world building and cultural preservation…If you want to set out on a journey, read this." – We Do Write "I loved this book! I was drawn into the story with the fantastic and descriptive storytelling told alternatively between Rhen and Jinji!… The political pickings, magical murderers, and shadowy suspense are the real plot stars in this book and the wonderful characterization and world-building adds extra oomph to grab you and keep you in this world." – EBook Escapes

This bundle includes the prequel novella, The Golden Cage, as well as the first full-length novel, The Shadow Soul. ~~~ THE GOLDEN CAGE (A Dance of Dragons #0.5) In the land of Ourthuro, cruelty is a way of life. The king rules with an iron fist and no one dare defy him–no one except his daughter. Princess Leena is keeping a dangerous secret, she has fallen in love with a soldier and it would mean both of their lives if her father ever discovered their affair.

Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Rhen can pull burning flames into his flesh. But while they struggle to hide the truth, a shadow lurks in the night. An ancient evil has reawakened, and unbeknownst to them, these two unlikely companions hold the key to its defeat. Because their meeting was not coincidence–it was fate.

Mo’ne Davis Hits Kevin Hart With B Button Spin Move At NBA Celebrity All-Star Game [VIDEO]

Kevin Hart managed to walk away with his fourth MVP honor at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game but he was on the wrong side of the top highlight when he was crossed up by female Little League star Mo’ne Davis.

Excuse me, that’s AP Female Athlete of Year Mo’ne Davis.

Via MSN:

Playing in the All-Star Celebrity Game against opponents more than twice her age, the 13-year-old drove past Hart, the game’s MVP for the fourth time, with a spectacular spin move for an easy layup in the first quarter Friday night.

“That was pretty cool,” Davis said. “I work on it, but usually don’t do it. It was the right time to do it.”

Hart, who like Davis is from Philadelphia, said, “No excuses,” as he returned to the huddle shortly after her basket.

“It was a lot of fun, a lot of people never saw me play basketball,” she said. “To play in the celebrity All-Star game was pretty cool.”

The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year finished the All-Star Game with four points, helping the West team beat the East 59-51. Hart had 15 points.

“She was really impressive out there,” said WNBA star Skylar Diggins. “She definitely held her own.”

Davis was a little star struck, too. She made sure to take a photo with Diggins after the game before she left.

Activist Michaela Angela Davis Encourages Us To Embrace The Complexity Of Black Beauty

Eurocentric beauty standards have dominated mainstream media narratives for years. While African American women deal with everything from controversial skin-lightening creams to prodding about black hair that is constantly hurled their way, a panel of black women joined HuffPost Live on Thursday to remind us that black is still beautiful.

“Here’s what’s dope about being black to me. [Black women have] this ability to flip the script whenever you want,” BET editorial manager and image activist Michaela Angela Davis told host Nancy Redd. “This ability to have what looks like contradicting ideas and be cool with it. Like I’m ratchet and refined, right?”

She then pivoted to hair and discussed how its versatility can be used to express a personality or mood.

“If you say, ‘Today, I’m feeling very Cameron Diaz,’ and you blow your hair out and put on whatever, and then tomorrow you’re Missy Elliot, that is the breadth of beauty that we can be, this bouquet of beauty,” she said.

As she explained, black beauty is all about “complexity,” in everything from hairstyles to skin color, and being able to “authentically” embrace all aspects of that diversity.

“Look at all of our different shades and our sizes and our curves and our curls and our complexions,” she added. “Our complexity is also really beautiful.”

Sign up here for Live Today, HuffPost Live’s new morning email that will let you know the newsmakers, celebrities and politicians joining us that day and give you the best clips from the day before!

Sammy Davis Jr.’s Ex-Girlfriend Alleges Bill Cosby Assaulted Her

Katherine McKee, a former actress and ex-girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr., has alleged that she was also a victim of Bill Cosby, joining more than 20 women who have accused the once famed comedian of rape and attempted assault.

According to McKee, “It was a rape, but it seemed so strange to call it that. We think of rape as a stranger who attacks you in a parking lot,” she concluded. “I chalked it up to another powerful person in Hollywood who just felt he could take what he wanted from women.”

Take a look at her interview with the New York Daily News below:

Miles Davis Way: Chats with Erin Davis & Vince Wilburn, The Babys’ Tony Brock and Ryan Aderréy, Plus Gladshot and Adam Zwig

2014-05-27-plaque2.jpg

A Conversation with Erin Davis and Vince Wilburn

Mike Ragogna: Let’s start with the street. It’s about time that Miles Davis got a street named after him, but why now? What brought it on?

Vince Wilburn: What brought it on? There was a lady named Shirley Zafirau, she is a neighbor on West 77th street and she’s very politically driven. She thought it would be very honorable if the city would grant uncle Miles a street named in his honor. So one of Mayor Bloomberg’s last bills to be signed before he left office was to pass this ordinance to have the street named after uncle Miles. So Shirley Zafirau was the one who really spearheaded it. She’s going to be at the event, we were out hanging “No Parking” signs last night. I don’t want to tell her age, but she’s really spunky and feisty. The family applauds.

Erin Davis: We’re very grateful to her.

MR: Erin, the US postal service’s Miles Davis stamp is the biggest selling specialty stamp to date, right?

ED: I wouldn’t be surprised! I know it sold a ton of stamps and was joint released with the post in France, so it was a really big honor for us to have this joint release with the two nations, the US and France. That was a long time coming, too, a lot of work and a lot of red tape, but the post office had a great team of guys working on that and they pushed it through once they got the artwork sorted out and everything. It was a great, great thing for the family.

MR: Another major thing is the bio pic that’s happening with Don Cheadle, Ewan McGregor and Zoe Saldana.

ED: Yeah, we’re thrilled about that. That’s also a long time coming. Vince?

VW: It took seven years and we’re finally going to production in Cincinatti in June, it’s Don Cheadle’s directorial debut, and then we have Zoe Saldana and Ewan McGregor cast. The script was written by Steven Baigelman and Don Cheadle.

ED: Steven Baigelman just finished the James Brown movie, he’s a great writer.

MR: Cool. Miles Davis has his own brand, people know his sound the second they think of his name, even though he went through several distinct styles. What is it from your perspective that made this music iconic?

ED: It’s unique, and what’s unique about it is that it changes over the years, it’s not just a sound. The Rolling Stones you can identify pretty quickly, and they’re often copied but you can always go back to them and say, “Oh, that’s something that The Rolling Stones did.” With Miles I think you identify with periods of his career, the styles he’s played in. You know his horn playing, you can pick up his phrasing because it’s just so sweet and melodic. It’s just the choicest notes, it’s never as many notes as youc an fit into a bar, it’s only the right ones. [laughs]

MR: Nice. And of course it’s emotional. Everything that came out of those lips came from the heart.

ED: Exactly.

MR: Vince, obviously you have a lot of stories about Miles, but do you have any that come to mind, something you watched him do or something about him?

VW: I always say this, but you’re talking about someone who was the first to wake up in the morning and last to go to sleep at night, driven by music. He would change close five or six times a day, his mind just worked in very creative ways and he was always thinking about the music, advancing the music, exploring new horizons with the music, never looking back. We played together for four years and each night was different. We called it Miles Davis University, he was the captain. We called him “The Chief.”

MR: He was the kind of improv, wasn’t he?

VW: Yeah, you could say that. He had structure, but he used to say, “Set up things.” There was structure with the improv. He would say, “I’ll tell you to play, not to practice.” You had to be ready, spontanaeity was the key.

MR: Erin, do you have any special stories with him?

ED: I’ve got a million of them. I think one story or one situation that kind of resonated for me often was that he wasn’t able to attend my high school graduation because he was on tour, but he called me up and he said, “You’re going to be in the band because John Bingham is leaving,” he was playing electronic percussion, and I didn’t really know anything about that, but I just kind of said, “Okay.” I was used to going on the road with him in the Summers, but on crew. I obviously always wanted to be in the band, but I thought more along the lines of I would play drums. But I said, “Okay,” and the day after I walked and got my diploma I was on a plane to meet up with them in New York. That whole tour when I played with him, the first and second tours I was just nervous the whole time because I wasn’t really comfortable with the electronic percussion, being complimentary to the drummer. I thought I was ruining the show for him. I had solos and I didn’t know what to play. He was very patient about it. I thought, “Man, he’s going to send me home after a week,” but he was very patient about it. One night I remember I was so tired of being stressed out that I just let loose and started hitting everything and playing and trying to remember all the chops I had and he was like, “You actually played pretty good today.” I think I just stopped being nervous and relaxed a little bit. Like Vince said, he never paid us to practice. It wasn’t about trying to be perfect, it was about taking yourself to a different place you haven’t been. Your highest form of expression. I wish I would have realized that earlier, I think I would’ve enjoyed it a lot more. But that’s probably one of the things I take away from him not being here, I wish I could talk to him about that experience.

MR: Can you remember if there’s any specific moment or event during your time with Miles that changed your outlook on music?

VW: Him being a leader, it teaches you how to interact with musicians. Both Erin and I are bandleaders and it taught us how to deal with our musicians on a certain level. Musicians are sensitive creatures, so to get what you want out of your musicians you have to treat them a certain way and then you can take them in your direciton. That’s one of the things that I learnerd from him, the way you treat musicians to get the best out of them. That stuck in my mind when I played with him and now I apply that to my band.

ED: I echo fully what Vince said. I watch Vince with his guys and it reminds me of how Miles, “Chief,” used to handle his guys, how he would deal with them. Vince said musicians are sensitive, sometimes things happen and guys do things on stage or on the bandstand or off stage, but Vince deals with his guys in the same way Chief used to. I was always surprised when I thought Chief would get very upset with somebody but he wouldn’t. You’ve just got to know how to deal with people. There were things that would upset him, mostly about which guys were playing, not what they were saying. The other thing that I learned from him that kind of changed things for me is that he really knew how to pick guys for the band. He picked guys that he thought were good players in whatever band they were in before. It didn’t have to be jazz or anything, if a guy was a good player he would ask them to join the band. I think a lot of people didn’t understand that, including other members of the band that he was fronting at the time. He would just build these great bands that would come together over time that always had great drummers, horn players, bass players, guys would come and go and I would always think he’d be upset when a guy would have to leave to play with someone else, but he would always wish them well. It was kind of like a family, it was really cool.

MR: Was he a big mentor?

ED: I think he would really be concerned about what was happening with his band before helping somebody else with their thing, but if you were in his band he would help you with your career going forward anyway. I think he was just trying to help you with things you might not be aware of, just furthering your own development. So in a way, yeah. He definitely did mentor a lot of people in that way.

MR: What are you guys working on right now?

VW: I’ve got a couple of artists, a kid named Jesse Campbell who was on The Voice, I’m doing some music with him, I’ve got a kid named Niles Rivers, Erin and I both have studios respectively in California. We’re always putting tracks together and calling each other, I go over to Erin’s and Erin scores movies and it freaks me out. I’m so proud of him, listening to his music and his tracks, we inspire each other. I have artists that I’m producing, and Erin can speak on his productions.

ED: Well, last year I produced the score for this documentary about Richard Pryor called Omit The Logic. I’ve done a couple film scores in the years before that myself, being a composer. I dabbled in some management, I was working with an artist called Gabriel Johnson, we still work together, but I’m taking more time to write music myself and get back into my playing. I play drums and I play a little guitar and bass, too. I’m kind of just working on a new project and I’m hoping to collaborate with a friend of mine who’s also a composer. We’re hoping to get together in the next few months to see what happens, but other than that we work with the estate a lot, the movie’s coming up and once in a while I’ll get a nice internet commercial or something I can do. Right now I’m just working on new material, I write different styles of music, sometimes it’s acoustic blues, sometimes it’s hard rock, sometimes it’s more something you would hear in a film. I’m just kind of working through a lot of different things right now and I’m enjoying it.

MR: Nice. You also worked with Kyle Eastwood in that supergroup Bloodline.

VW: [laughs] Supergroup…I like that. It was a supergroup!

ED: Yeah, that was back about twenty years ago I was in Bloodline with Berry Oakley, Jr, Waylon Krieger, and Joe Bonamassa who’s now gone on to great success, I’m so happy for him. I love seeing him out there in all the guitar magazines and seeing him on DirecTV all the time. I go to the guitar shop and half the stuff is his personal model of guitar or pedal or amp or whatever. It’s great to see, because I know he worked really hard at it. I think when we started he was fourteen, and now I know twenty years later he’s worked through it all, I’m really happy with him. Kyle’s project, we recorded a record in Paris a couple years ago, and that was great fun to work on because he’s a great friend.

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

ED: The advice I would have for new artists these days is try to write what you write, don’t try to write what everybody else does. Just explore playing live as much as you can, get your group together and get tight with rehearsals and go play live. I’ve seen a lot of bands that are able to get shows but aren’t good at playing live because they don’t know what to do, they don’t know how to listen to each other or how to work in a club environment or even a larger venue. The last thing would be to get your social media numbers up because that’s how it’s working these days.

MR: Yeah. Vince, what about you?

VW: Don’t go on American Idol. Don’t go on these TV shows. Like Erin says, man, you’ve got to play. You’ve got to go through the trenches. You don’t want to be a one-hit wonder. I’m so sick of these artists who are in it for the money and then they’re out. They’re in for one album and then you don’t hear from them anymore. Think about longevity, think about starting at the bars or the clubs or whatever and play music with people you like to play with. Don’t be with these f**king put together bands, I hate it. I hate it, hate it, hate it. Play. You’ve got to play. Don’t autotune, it’s horrible. It bastardizes the music and people who want to be creative. That’s a whole other topic, man. Erin and I have the Miles Davis House in Austin, and man the bands who come through there just kill it. They play and Erin and I just smile, man. We’re high fiving each other. We had Lucinda Williams, it’s like, “S**t.” It doesn’t get much better than that. All these bands are killing. That’s where there’s a disconnect: There’s a disconnect between true artists and one-hit wonders. We love the true artists, the artists that are in the ditches, social media, grinding, playing, hitting all the clubs and the bars and paying their dues. Does that get my point across?

MR: I think so! [laughs] With American Idol and The Voice, sure, they’re fun to watch, but I think it also teaches generations of kids who are going to go into music into thinking that’s how you do it.

VW: Yeah, and they go in it for the money. Money is great, we love money, but love music first. If you kick ass on your instrument or you’re singing your ass off, the money will come. Shit, Bruno Mars was doing Elvis impersonations in Hawaii or something, but it prepared him for where he is now. I just used him as one example. He can share with you his struggles. His brother plays drums in the band, his brother was a police officer, he stopped playing drums to join the police force, and then when Bruno picked up he quit the police force to play with his brother. And he can play! I don’t consider Bruno Mars a one-hit wonder, but what do I know?

MR: I would never put him in that category.

VW: He kicked ass in the Super Bowl halftime, that’s enough for me. Dig this, Kanye West had to come up through the trenches, trying to get his demo played until Jay gave him a shot, and now look at Kanye West. He paid his dues. You’ve got to go through the trenches.

MR: I have to ask you, how did Kind Of Blue become one of the greatest albums of all time?

ED: I’m not sure! It’s one of those secret formulas. A lot of people I talk to, when my dad comes up they say, “Oh, I loved Kind Of Blue.” That’s not the only record they say, but that’s a lot of people’s introduction to jazz. It’s very easy on the ears without being easy-listening music. It’s nice to listen to. You don’t have to dig in right away to figure it out. Sometimes if you’re trying to listen to a bird solo and you haven’t really experienced a lot of jazz before you may not be sure what you’re listening to, but with Kind Of Blue I think you know what you’re hearing right away, you’re hearing something beautiful. You don’t need a degree to listen to it, you just need to be open minded. Most people put it on and they’re just like, “Wow, this is great.” That’s the essence of that record.

VW: I agree with what Erin said, you don’t have to scratch your head to digest it. It’s modal music, and to me it’s haunting in a beautiful way. “Blue And Green” is my favorite song. It’s was Miles’ mother’s favorite song. I can never get tired of listening to Kind Of Blue. Bill Evans, Cannonball, I talked to Jimmy Cobb this morning.

MAXWELL’S COOL DEMON FROM GLADSHOT

2014-05-27-gladshot1333bw.jpg

According to the Gladshot…

“We’re excited about our new ep, Maxwell’s Cool Demon. The title is a physics term, roughly, it means to turn information into energy… It’s produced by John Agnello, who we love working with. He also produced our debut Burn Up & Shine. He creates the best vibe to make music in. The songs are diverse: ‘Fun With Hydrangeas’ is about the conspiracy movies of the ’60s + ’70s; the title of the song is an obscure reference to a scene in ‘Manchurian Candidate’; ‘Corp Safe’ and ‘We Live in America’ both comment on the times…boarded up Main St. and the narrowing of the collective conversation in the media. We can’t wait to play these songs at The Delancey residency and the tour to follow this summer.”

2014-05-27-ryanaderreywhatifalbumcover.jpg

Mike Ragogna: Ryan, there’s an interesting quote made about your debut album What If. “If it was a movie, this promising singer/songwriter would be the self-assured lead character that possesses maturity, quiet confidence, leadership and, most of all, real talent.” How much of that is hype and how much is true…come on, you can tell me!

Ryan Aderréy: [laughs] Well, someone was hired to write all that, and I think they did a good job, but it’s all true. I think we’re bursting onto the scene and are doing it in a major way, so yeah, I’m going to say it’s all true.

MR: [laughs] What is your reaction to having a hit on Billboard?

RA: You know what, it doesn’t feel real. I woke up today and I looked at the framed picture of it we have hanging on our wall, and it really doesn’t seem like it happened. If you’d asked me a year ago if we’d be in this position, I would have told you you were crazy. It’s surreal, but I’m honored and really proud, and am happy all the hard work finally paid off.

MR: Tell me about the hard work that went into this. I want to hear the Ryan Aderréy story from Ryan Aderréy’s perspective.

RA: Sure. I started in this business just producing. At the time I was going to Boston University and was playing soccer, and music wasn’t really my main focus. It was always a passion and was there on the side, but it wasn’t my main focus. I started doing music, and when I graduated I got a little attention from the production so I thought, “Maybe I’ll pursue this a little bit.” I got a little frustrated because it was going nowhere. I was in the presence of world-renowned vocal coach Anita Wilson. She heard me sing – just joking around, it wasn’t even serious – and she said, “If you come and work with me and really stick with this, you can be a singer.” And that’s exactly what I did. For about two years I went every day to her for an hour a day, and the rest is history.

MR: How did you get to the point where What If came together, creatively?

RA: It took a long time. I work with a writing team that I’ve assembled, and some of these songs they began a long time ago, in the ’70s, and they never materialized. They were brought back to the forefront when we went a studio down in Miami and we tried out some productions and some engineers. We tested it with radio and the radio wasn’t responding to it, so we scrapped it. That was a year wasted. Then we came back and found producer Zach Ziskin. who’s a Grammy-winning producer who’s worked for Warner Brothers and Universal. He made the productions modern and fit them to our melodies and to our vibe with the words. It took about two years just for What If to even materialize, so it’s been a long road.

MR: I think a lot of people would relate to “Without Hope.” What was your relationship like with this person and how did it inspire you to want to write that song?

RA: I wrote that song based on the experiences on one of my best friends. He grew up struggling in a household with abusive parents, and I think that, to this day, he hasn’t gotten himself out of that situation emotionally or mentally, but the point is that he never gave up. He always kept hope and he always put his head down and kept trudging along, and I think that is something that everyone can relate to. They’ve either been in it, or they’ve seen someone in it, and I really wanted to write about it. At first he wasn’t too happy that everyone was hearing his story, but then he warmed up to it and was really glad that the message got out.

MR: Do you think that maybe the people who were in his life and also heard it took a sober moment or two to to think about it?

RA: I hope so. I’m not sure if they did, but I hope that if they heard it, they learned from it and decided at that very moment to change themselves as people and to better themselves and to be better parents. I really do hope so.

MR: Every song seems to have a message, for instance, “What Ifs & Broken Promises.” It seems that a lot of people can’t say “no,” or they have good intentions and that leads them to those “what-ifs and broken promises.” Do you think it’s fair to say that?

RA: It’s obviously going to be different on a case-by-case basis. I think you’re 100% correct that people bite off more than they can chew, and they don’t do it on purpose; they have the best of intentions and it just doesn’t work out and they end up playing the role of the bad guy. And there are also times where people are just mean-spirited, it’s just their nature and they end up acting the way they do.

MR: Another big moment on the record is “A Miracle, My Love.” What motivated that one?

RA: That was a personal experience of mine. It’s basically about waking up in the morning and feeling like you have nothing to live for. And then this person comes along and they completely change the way you see the world. You start seeing miracles in the smallest things you may not have given a second thought to before, and in doing so, they become your miracle. I wrote that because it happened to me.

MR: Ryan, you sound like a romantic.

RA: I am. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart.

MR: Are you a hopeless romantic because that’s maybe what you witnessed in your family? Do you think that may have influenced that and/or your creativity?

RA: I think so. It’s what I witness growing up, and my family’s very creative and I think that by nature creative people are very emotional, and can be hopeless romantics. I think it was a combination of the two.

MR: What is it that you picked up from your creative family?

RA: My father was a songwriter in London for a long time. He was a part of Apple Records. My grandfather was the lead trumpet player for Tony Bennet, and my mother sang background and reference tracks all the time. It’s just in my blood.

MR: Did you think you ever had a chance to escape music?

RA: [laughs] No, probably not. I remember growing up on weekends and hearing The Beatles, Jackson Browne and Bob Dylan on the stereo. It was around twenty-four seven.

MR: Do you have any favorite artists and/or songs from that period?

RA: I love Bob Dylan. I credit him for a lot of the better lyricists today. I always loved Jackson Browne melodies. I thought they were very soothing and very easy to listen to. The Beatles are an obvious answer. Santana, too; I grew up listening to Santana’s guitar playing and I thought he was a genius.

MR: What do you strive for when you’re creative something and what’s you creative process?

RA: In terms of songwriting, I don’t think you fake it; I think you have to go off personal experiences, so I sit down when I want to write something and think, “What am I going through right now that others can relate to?” I know a lot of songwriters just write theoretical ideas and they might not be going through it, or they might not have ever experienced it, and I think that the audience will eventually catch onto that and see through it. I try to be relatable, and I want the audience to say, “I’ve been through that, and it’s really nice that I can hear someone else say that they’ve been through that, too.”

MR: Can you remember the first song you ever wrote?

RA: Yeah, I can remember it, but I’m not going to share it because it was pretty bad.

MR: [laughs] So in your opinion, over the years, you’ve gotten better.

RA: Yes, I think I’ve grown over the years as a songwriter and as an artist and I think that’s ultimately the goal.

MR: Ryan, what advice would you give to new artists?

RA: I get asked this a lot, and my biggest advice I have–and yes, recording songs and putting material out for listeners to hear is vital–is to network. There’s no bridge too small you can build, and you never know, one thing leads to another, leads to another, leads to another. It’s all about who you know. So put out as many recordings as you can, keep your listeners happy, but network. But do it the right way. Go shake hands, don’t just ask for a handout or say, “Hey, can you listen to my song?” No. Say, “I’d appreciate if you’d listen to this, and I’d be more than happy to do X for you.” If you do that, people really appreciate it, it stays with them, and they’ll remember you for future opportunities. So network, network, network, and do it the right way.

MR: Nice, thanks. Have you heard “A Miracle, My Love” playing on the radio yet?

RA: I have. We were in Indiana and Illinois and we heard it in the car. We’d never heard it live on the air, and we were thrilled.

MR: When are we going to hear the David Guetta remix of “A Miracle, My Love”?

RA: Anytime that David wants to contact me, he’d be more than welcome to take one of the songs and remix it any time that he felt like it. Also, my favorite electronic group is Cruella, so if they wanted to do a remix of it, I think I’d die and go to Seventh Heaven.

MR: [laughs] What does the future hold for Mr. Ryan Aderréy?

RA: Well, we’ve already recorded the second album. As we speak I’m down in Miami doing the second single. June 2nd we go on the tour to the west coast. We start in San Diego at Summer Sessions, which is a really big singer/songwriter showcase we were invited to. So we start there, and make our way up to LA where we play The House Of Blues. Then Las Vegas, playing The Hard Rock, and we’re just going to touring the west coast for the whole month of June. That’s what the immediate future holds.

MR: Your answers are pretty succinct and on point with brevity. So I want to know what sports coach worked with you in order to answer questions?

RA: [laughs] Well it was when I went over to play in Amsterdam. I was playing professional soccer for about three years and they had an interview coach. So I have been coached since about 2003. I know how speak. You’re exactly right, they tell you when to stop, not to stutter, not to use “Uh” or other fillers. They tell you all the tricks. I’ve been coached-up for a while.

MR: Aha! Ryan, I appreciate the interview. Did we cover everything?

RA: You can go to my website, www.ryanaderrey.com, and all the big ones like facebook and twitter, and they’re all /ryanaderrey, so they’re very easy to find.

A Conversation with The Babys’ Tony Brock

Mike Ragogna: The Babys have a new album, I’ll Have Some Of That. So…thirty years?

Tony Brock: I know! We would’ve like some of that over the last thirty years, too. Unfortunately, we disbanded and we’ve been pecking away at trying to put the band back together for a number of years. I asked John Waite a few times, we stayed friends with John and everything’s great, he’s given us his blessing but because of his career he just doesn’t need it. So I decided I’d had enough and I basically wanted to give it one more shot because I felt like we were robbed from being pushed over the top to being a superstar band. Basically, I put the word out that The Babys were getting back together, I had held auditions for a singer and they were around the block. I got John Bisaha in, the poor lad, just to make sure we kept the integrity of the band. He’s worked out fantastic. Then Wally Stocker came from Florida and away we went. We did a few gigs just to get our feet wet, I’m lucky enough to own a studio so I ended up producing a new album for the Babys to get a fresh start and here we are.

MR: What the heck were you doing in the mean time?

TB: As soon as we realized there was no chance of The Babys getting back together I joined Eddy Money for about six months and then I went to Rod Stewart for almost twelve years, I got to play with Jeff Beck and Tina Turner and people like that, so that was a lot of fun. Playing with Rod was a great experience because it was a Rod Stewart group, we were more of a band instead of Rod Stewart and his backing band that he has now. We did everything together as a group, it was fantastic. From there I got an offer to start producing a guy down in Australia called Jimmy Barnes, he’s Australia’s number one male singer down there. We had seven hit albums together, and in doing that I got to produce Keith Urban, the first thing that he ever did down in Australia. It wasn’t country then, but it certainly is now, I know. Then from there I came back and just hooked my studio together and I’ve been doing sessions and producing from my studio for the last ten years. That’s what’s enabled The Babys to put a new album together.

MR: The Babys are coming back into a very different music world than the one it left. How does I’ll Have Some Of That fit into the whole paradigm of what’s going on in music right now?

TB: Well I feel like the younger kids, twenty to thirty year olds, they know of Led Zeppelin and Bad Company and it’s not like the old days where you’re an old fart because you don’t know about those bands. In my family I grew up knowing all the old soul artists, where The Babys grew from. Today’s kids are ready to accept that late seventies, early eighties music again. It never really went away for some people. The kids still love Zeppelin, they still love The Who and Bad Company, those sort of bands have never gone away and they’ve still captured a younger audience. The Babys have never really gone away, because luckily we had some great songs. It’s kind of a silly name, but I think the cult following and having great songs and being respected by musicians and peopel like that has kept The Babys going. I think with a new generation they’re going to love it, they’re going to think they’ve found something new, the way I look at it.

MR: What are the main artistic differences between The Babys then and now?

TB: Where we ended up on our fifth album with Keith Olsen, we kind of got into that Americana sound, very tight and poppy, and that’s not what we were about. In our early days, Ron Nevison was producing us and we kept our raw English things, we still used strings and brass and stuff like that, but that’s not overproducing. Today when you overproduce you use tons of reverb and delays and that sort of thing that’s on every record that I hear on the radio. We haven’t done that, we’ve kept to the true form of what the Babys were, writing great songs, keeping it raw and sounding really good. In fact, we’re even going to make some vinyls, because the young kids are starting to play vinyls again. As far as other differences, the only difference is that we have a couple of different players. But Wally’s sound and my sound has always been at the forefront in the Babys albums and the drum sound and the guitar sound have always been there and we’ve kept that. I don’t think we’ve veered too much apart from our new singer, obviously we weren’t trying to copy John Waite, but we needed someone to keep the soulfulness in it because that’s what we’re about. So we needed a real soul singer and I think we found him. Hopefully we haven’t veered much at all, we’re trying to stay true to what we believe in and all love.

MR: When I think of The Babys, I always think of “Head First.” It was such an anthem, even if it didn’t cart as highly as your other hits.

TB: No, I know, but to this day if you go down to a lot of clubs where there’s a band doing top forty “Head First” always comes up. If I get invited up on stage the first thing they want to play is “Head First.” That song actually just arrived because I got a white grand piano in ’77, I put it in my apartment and when you play a brand new instrument it’s always good for a new song, just for the sounds and the fun. That was the first song that came out of it, “Head First” and “Silver Dreams” came from that piano. Fond memories.

MR: What is that special thing about The Babys?

TB: Well, I think it’s the sound and the way we put songs together. We have a magic together, and that’s why it was so important to put the right members in the new band. We had a magic band and to this day “Every Time I Think Of You,” “Isn’t It Time?” “Head First” are still being played on the radio. I’m hoping and praying that we’ve still captured those songs on “I’ll Have Some Of That” and we’re going to have a hit single. That’s how it’s going to resonate, we’re just doing what The Babys do and enjoying it. It comes off on records that we’re enjoying it, too. You can especially see on the records that we’re having a great time, making The Babys reborn–no pun intended. We’re just hoping and praying that it works for us because we’ve put a lot of hard work into it and whichever way it goes I’m very proud of it. You’ve got to give it a shot, right? If you don’t try, you never know!

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

TB: I know it sounds like your father speaking to you, but you’ll have to practice and you have no choice but to be totally into it. I used to practice eight hours a day and think nothing of it. People ask me all the time, “Did you ever think you were going to fail at what you were trying to do as a musician?” I look back and I think, no, I never thought once that I was going to fail. That thought never entered my head. It was just something that I love so much–it has to go through your body and you have to love it and enjoy it and soak everything up and learn from other people and watch them. Like I did as a producer, I stole Ron Nevison’s ideas, I stole Keith Olsen’s ideas, all the greatest producers that we had I took just a little piece of them and worked it in to make it me. That’s what you have to do as a drummer, as a guitarist, as a singer, you pick your favorite people and pick what you love and then put it all together and make it your own. That’s my advice to the kids, that’s what you’ve got to do, if you don’t truly love it deep down then don’t bother because it’s a lot of hard work. There’s a lot of people ready to smack you down, so you’ve got to believe in what you do. We weren’t ready to give up yet, that’s why The Babys are back.

MR: So new artists shouldn’t be ready to give up at that point in their careers either?

TB: No! As long as they believe in what they’re doing they’ve got to give it a try because later on you’ll be kicking yourself wishing you’d at least given it a better shot.

MR: What do you think The Babys are going to grow up into?

TB: I don’t have any answer as far as dates, we’re going through it this week with our promotor, but we have some festivals alreayd set up and we’re going to try and jump on a few tours from bigger bands and see if we can put some bums in seats. That’s all we know right now, but it’s looking good.

MR: All right, well I expect to be able to get an interview with you on the next album as well. Is it going to be another thirty years?

TB: No, I’ll be in a box by then. [laughs]

MR: Only CD boxes allowed.

TB: The box set.

ADAM ZWIG’S “WAITING ON HEAVEN (TO MAKE A MOVE)”

Singer-songwriter Adam Zwig’s forthcoming EP, Stones, Bones, and Skin on Conscious Records due out August 18th, is a hybrid of Americana, pop, rock, folk and world music over the course of five tracks. The EP includes the song “Waiting For Heaven (To Make A Move) (Remix),” which features a soaring orchestral arrangement. “This song is an orchestral version of the original tune that appeared on my album Visions Of The Shimmering Night,” Adam explains. “I wanted to try something totally different and get out of my comfort zone. And how do I do that? Take away guitars and drums!” He adds, “I sang with The Section Quartet–known for their gorgeously re-imagined tracks by Radiohead, Muse, Pink Floyd and others–backing me. My producer, David Bianco, had introduced us, and together we reworked the song in a completely new way that has such gravitas and feeling. The track is about those times when you aren’t in control of what’s happening and you have to find a way to adjust to fate, and wait for change.”
