    Author Tyler Braddy: The Devil Came Calling

    in Books

    Tyler Braddy grew up in Georgia in a family full of storytellers, so there was always someone around with the ability to tell a good old wives' tale. One side of his family is comprised of musicians--regionally known gospel and bluegrass players--and rebels; moonshiners, construction workers, trucker drivers...professional southerners, so to speak. 


    Join me today to meet Author T. Blake Braddy, author of "The Devil Came Calling," and Boogie House.

    Early Morning At The"Tomb Raider Temple"Ta Prohm-Angkor Ruins, Cambodia

    in Travel

    Excerpts from "Early Morning At The "Tomb Raider" Temple.


    The crowds that visit Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and the Angkor Ruins region can be overwhelming. Over 2.3 million people visited the site in 2014 making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of Southeast Asia. On my last visit I spent many early mornings wandering the ruins including visits to Ta Prohm, the temple complex made famous by the 2001 film Lara Croft Tomb Raider.


    Ta Prohm was built in the late 12th and early 13th centuries in the Bayon Style which include face towers and naga carrying giant figures. Originally called Rajavihara it is located one kilometer east of Angkor Thom, the last great city of the Khmer Empire. King Jayavayerman Vll who ruled the empire oversaw construction of Ta Prohm from Angkor Thom,  where he ruled.


    Ta Prohm had been left almost in the same condition as it was found, with huge trees growing out of the structure which have literally taken over the temple, one of it’s striking features.


    Don’t forget to look on the ground as there are many relics from the temple half buried under your path. 


    Is it worth it to wake up early with all of the craziness of the crowds? Of course, it’s Angkor Wat. It’s an amazing experience. Just be prepared for a little nonsense and sometimes rudeness with that many people gathered in one spot. Don’t get me wrong I’m not trying to be a downer. Just preparing you for what’s going to happen so you can adjust your expectations accordingly. If I didn’t have proof you’d probably never believe me if I told you someone even brought a horse. Mind you this was sunset, a different crowd indeed

    Does The Uniform Become Them? Daily Gogetemism #486

    in Lifestyle

    We probably asume that cops and military personnel are pretty much representative of their jobs even when they are off duty or not serving any longer but what about the rest of us? Do we become what our uniforms at work dictate us to be even when we aren't there? Should it?


    Fireman, cosmetologists, nurses, doctors, construction workers, bus drivers or train conductors, housekeepers, chefs, postman etc. Do the people that you know in these professions represent more of a lifestyle than their job? Is that a good thing? When is it bad?

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1278

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Linda Deir from Sedona, Arizona, a survivor, activist and author who grew up unwanted, unloved, and horribly abused from birth by a parent who vowed to "beat the spirit" out of her. After 16 years of physical, psychological, and emotional abuse, a pregnant Linda escaped the family never to return. It was the happiest day of her life, the day she got out alive. Her latest book "Guided" tells her story. Linda understood she was in trouble from the very beginning and took matters into her own hands at 20 months old. She ran away from home. Two policemen found her and took her home, but her mother beat her unconscious as soon as they left. Waking up on the floor later on Linda looked around the room and saw that she wasn't alone .. she was surrounded by 'angelic spirits,' protectors and teachers who saved her life, became her best friends, and guided her through unimaginable life challenges. Repeatedly told her that she would never amount to anything, by age 19 the little girl who played with the building blocks everyday in kindergarten became a self-taught business phenomenon in a man's world, the construction industry. She became an architect, home designer, and general contractor. Linda says she owes everything to being raised by her 'Spirit Guides' from an early age. They were her best friends and life coaches in everything she did. Despite the abuse she endured, they never let her become a victim. She now spends her time writing and coaching people to make the all-important spiritual connection to their angels and spirit guides so they can heal the hurt, pain and shame and live the life they intended before they got here.

    SBPM Continuous Learning Online Classes - Good or Bad Idea?

    in Politics

    Abibifahodie (Black Liberation),


    How would you like the idea of paying a fee to have access to Baba Mwalimu Baruti, Ashra & Merira Kwesi, Dr. Claude Anderson, Umar Johnson, Irritated Genie, as well as professional Black doctors, lawyers, construction company owners, home builders, jewelry makers, politicians and various other skilled Black men, women, and/or children online? 


    Can you imagine taking an online course on the Effeminization of Afrikan males with Baba Baruti?  Or how about a course on Ancient Kemetic Spirituality with the Master Teacher - Ashra Kwesi?  Or how about a weekly course on breaking down media with the Irritated Genie of Soufeese?  Imagine tuning into a big time Black executive at a major corporation and getting his advice for submitting an application for a job or how to conduct the perfect interview.  Or even better, imagine a retired Black multi-millionaire giving a class on how to raise capital and run a successful business.  Imagine learning to become a professional tailor with interactive dialog from an online resource.


    These things could all be possible if there is enough interest.  We have access to some of the most prolific Black educators around the world.  We also have access to many successful Black people who would love nothing more than an opportunity to share their wisdom and experience with our people. 


    We will run the idea by our audience and see what our people come back to us with.  If you like the idea and WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY FOR IT TO COME TO REALITY, then we will work to make it a reality.


    Tune in on Monday night for an exciting program that you are bound to enjoy.
