Ed Smith makes his return as my co-host on the Detroit Sports Truth! First, we talk about everything bad that Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has done, and everything that he didn't do that he really should've done. We also talk about Detroit Sports Rag #2-in-command Justin Spiro holding up the "Fire Ausmus" and "Hire Acta" signs and getting assaulted by the fan behind him at Wrigley Field. Then I allow him to give me and the Detroit sports world his predictions on the Lions, Michigan Wolverines, and Michigan State Spartans.
This is a 30-minute podcast of the Detroit Sports Truth on BlogTalkRadio tonight at 11:30 PM EST! Call in live at (646) 478-4837, or text message live at (231) 429-3668!
I recap and talk about what went down in Preseason Week 2 between the Lions and the Washington Redskins Thursday night with special guest Lions analyst Robb Gillies from Cadillac.
I also touch on the first of a 4-game series between the Tigers and Texas Rangers at Comerica Park. The Tigers may be pretty much done, but the Rangers are not.
Finally, I scour the Red Wings 30 in 30 package from nhl.com for a preview of their 2015-2016 season.
This week J'Wan Yvette talks about the box office smash biopic "Straight Outta Compton" and some of the talk about it - and even why some people feel the project never should have come to the big screen. What is your take on the movie and the backlash? Also during this hour J'Wan gives you a chance to SOUND OFF about whatever else is on your mind. This week features music by N. W. A., Dr. Dre, Pharcyde, Eazy E and more.
On the August 13, 2015 edition of "Nature Of Reality Radio" I welcome Alexandre Tannous who has been active as a musician, educator, composer, and as an ethnomusicologist. He holds a Bachelor of Music with a double major in Music Theory and Composition, and a Master of Arts degree in Music Education from Columbia University Teachers College. As a recipient of the Mellon Fellowship he also earned a Master of Arts and a Master of Philosophy degrees in Ethnomusicology from Columbia University where he was enrolled in the PH.D. program.
As a musician, he has performed a variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, rock, and non-Western music on the double bass, guitar, piano and percussion. Alexandre is also active as an ethnomusicologist. He has conducted fieldwork for 17 years in over 40 countries around the world. His ethnomusicological research investigates issues of acculturation, community, musical identity in an urban setting, and the concepts of talent, charisma, and leadership in music. He is a sought-after ethnomusicologist/composer consultant on projects in recording studios helping creating awareness in amalgamating various musical cultures.
For the past eight years he has been researching the therapeutic and esoteric properties of sound from Western scientific, Eastern philosophical, and shamanic societal beliefs perspectives. This has lead him to design a protocol of an integrated experience he calls “Sound Meditation” in which he raises an awareness to how a specifically designed sound can have the ability to help us to disconnect from habitual patterns, and guiding people in how to disconnect from the mind in this setting while listening to the specific traditional instruments he plays. He currently works as a sound therapist and teaches this practice.

Jackson State had an un JSU like season, the Tigers struggled under their first year coach. But showed signs of life by the end of the season. With a potentially high flying offense and the always dangerous Dark Side Defense, JSU could be the roadblock for any contender. The Tigers are picking up preseason praise, can they translate that to victories? We’ll find out.
Grambling was last year’s surprise coming off a horrible 2013 both on and off the field. The Tigers showed lots of life and made big moves becoming a threat by midseason. Now comes the big step can they continue to grow and prove that they belong. There are high expectations for the G-Men but that is the price of being Grambling. We will see if they can reclaim their seat at the head of the SWAC table.

Tonight Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcome the New Orleans Rock band The Breton Sound to the Show!
Since 2010, New Orleans natives The Breton Sound have been proving them wrong with their brand of energetic, melodic, and anthemic rock and roll. The band's co-founders, singer/guitarist Jonathan Pretus (formerly of Cowboy Mouth) and guitarist Stephen Turner, have helmed the release of their first two EP's, 2011's Eudaemonia, and 2013's Maps, to rave reviews. Upon the release of Maps, PASTE Magazine hailed them as one of "12 Louisiana Bands You Should Listen To."
The Breton Sound has toured throughout the Southeast and Midwest, including stops at such major festivals as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, andthe Voodoo Experience.
