The Stevie Wonder Story (1977) - Part 1/29

Hallelujah! God has blessed us with the life of Stevie Wonder and my deepest, sincerest, thanks goes out to johnniewalker23 for posting, "The Stevie Wonder Story (1977)", on Youtube. This may seem small but, for a Stevie fan, this is the next best thing to an actual movie made about the life of Stevie Wonder!

The video is broken up into 29 excruciating parts due to Youtube's 10 min restrictions. Fans were waiting with baited breathe as it took johnniewalker23 a week, (seemed like forever), to upload the videos. Now that all videos have been uploaded, it easier to listen to the videos as a playlist by going directly to the johnniewalker23 Channel on youtube.

The documentary itself is astoundingly informational. The best parts were the telling of Stevie's life as a child prodigy, his beautiful voice on some rare songs, and how his creative juices was allowed to flow freely. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the inside juice from his former ex-wife the late Syreeta Wright. His friend/wonderlovekin Denise Williams dishes the dirt on Stevie's work habits, (he was an unstoppable beast), and her heart wrenching feelings about Stevie's car accident.

This is the stuff his fans want to know!!! One word. Wow.

Stevie Wonder Conveys His Political Views


(CNSNews.com) -- Grammy award-winning musician Stevie Wonder said, “people are afraid of change.”

Regarding health care reform, Wonder said people are “bickering over something that we should have had a long time ago.” “I think as far as his [Obama’s] popularity decreasing, I think it’s because people are so used to, they’re so afraid of change and I think you have politics playing too much a role in what should be a natural, given that health care in this country needs to be improved and that’s just a reality,”

Wonder told CNSNews.com in an exclusive interview before his performance at a benefit concert for the Maya Foundation, a Washington D.C.-based non-profit group that raises money for special education programs in private schools. “There are people who use various technology for them being physically challenged and they can’t get the insurance companies to pay for it when in fact it helps them with every day living.” Wonder further said the United States needs to find something that will work because health care is free in many other countries.


“I am very, very pro-health care,” he said. “Most countries have some sort of health care system and it’s ridiculous that we don’t or that ours is, you know, people are bickering over something that we should have had a long time ago.” “I’m of the opinion that those in the medical field and those pharmaceutical companies need to work with doctors and nurses in hospitals, more preventative medicine and ways of making it possible for people to be more healthier as opposed to them getting medicines that are just band-aids to the problem,” said Wonder, adding that “it’s very, very expensive, very, very expensive. So, I think that we have to find something that is going to work; particularly in a lot of places, you know in certain countries, health care is free.”


Stevie Wonder has won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any male solo artist in history. He signed a record deal with Motown Records when he was 11 and still records for the label today. His most well-known hits include, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” “My Cherie Amour,” “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” and “Superstition.”
Below is the transcript of the interview with Stevie Wonder: Nicholas Ballasy, video reporter,

CNSNews.com: “What you think still needs to be done to assist students with learning disabilities in public and private schools?”


Stevie Wonder: “Well, some kids are dyslexic and sometimes schools don’t know this. I think as better equipment and testing to know. I think that it’s a major, major importance that there become better relations – relationship between parents and that school or the teachers because basically, your putting, you know, a young child, a young person into an environment that is pretty standard but you don’t know what their live, living conditions are, eating, going to bed, just the whole thing – it takes a village. We have to really understand that we must make a complete connection to complete that chain.”


CNSNews.com: “You were active in the campaign for President Barack Obama. What’s the impression you have of the job he’s doing and this whole health care debate that’s going on right now in Washington?”


Stevie Wonder: “I am very, very pro-health care. Most countries have some sort of health care system and it’s ridiculous that we don’t or that ours is--you know, that people are bickering over something that we should have had a long time ago. I just think that--I’m of the opinion that those in the medical field and those various pharmaceutical companies need to work with doctors and, you know, nurses in the hospitals, more preventative medicine and ways of making it possible for people to be more healthier as opposed to them getting on medicine that, medicines that are just band-aids to the problem. And it’s very, very expensive, very, very expensive. And so, I think, that we have to find something that is going to work. Cause, particularly, in a lot of places, you know in certain countries, health care is free.”


CNSNews.com: “The President’s popularity has been declining since this health care debate began. What do you think is the reason for that and what do you think about the job he’s been doing?”


Stevie Wonder: “I think as far as his popularity decreasing, I think it’s because people are so used to, they’re so afraid of change, and I think you have politics playing too much a role in what should be a natural given--that health care in this country needs to be improved--and that’s just a reality. There are people who use various technology for them being physically challenged and they can’t get the insurance companies to pay for it, when in fact it helps them with every day living. The technology with the iPhone and how now it’s so very accessible for those who are visually challenged and physically challenged and those who are deaf. The technology is available for them to have this which makes them more independent and as they become more independent, they can do things to be more independent and have a chance to take better care of their life and their living. You know. So, I think that whenever we have change, whenever someone says, ‘Okay, listen, I know you’ve done it for this long but it’s time for things to be different’ and you’re going to have people that are going to do everything they can to challenge and be negative to what is really needed in this country.”

About a Half a Mile from Heaven


"You dropped my Black Ass back down to this cold, cold, world."

I'm simply loving the debate going on over at YouTube about the words to the song, "Rocket Love" from Stevie Wonder's "Hotter than July" Album.

What's so funny about the debate, is that some of the young folks debating cannot believe that Stevie Wonder would say, "Black Ass". Bless their little hearts.

I was there when this Album dropped back in 1980. Stevie Wonder was the schitt! and, yes, he was sometimes raw.

My Black Ass, His Black Ass, Everbody's Black Ass. He said it and what? What's wrong with saying Black Ass? His ass is Black isn't it? He can scream it from the rooftop! I love the debate, it's funny as hell.

Anyway, I would have caught Stevie's beautiful Black Ass and dusted it right off, as soon as, she dropped it back down to this cold, cold, world.

THE GREAT DEBATE CONTINUES!
Did Stevie say . . .
Drop my Black Ass back down to this cold, cold, world? or
Drop me back down to this cold, cold, world?

Put me down for both, so what the fuss?

The "Hotter Than July" is the next CD that my Black Ass is going to purchase next week for the Thanksgiving dinner.

The album cover features Stevie's ICONIC LOOK!!! The original Album cover is probably a collecters item.

Hotter Than July was an historic Album, featuring, "Master Blaster (Jammin)", a creative reggae homage to the one and only, Bob Marley! The "Happy Birthday" song, dedicated to Martin Luther King and the King Holiday! Does anyone even sing Happy Birthday the orignial way anymore? I really don't think so. The "ALL I DO" song, originally written for the late, Tammi Terrell. Stevie later recorded the song with Micheal Jackson, Eddie LeVert,and Betty Wright singing background.

And of course,

Rocket Love, written by Stevie Wonder,

I longed for you since I was born,

A woman sensitive and warm,

And that you were.

With pride and strength no one could test,

But yet have feminine finesse,

And so much more.

You took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star,

But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back,

down to this cold, cold world,

Took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star,

But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back,

down to this cold, cold world.

A female Shakespeare of your time,

With looks to blow Picasso's mind,

You were the best,

Your body moved with grace and song,

Like symphonies by Bach or Brahms,

Nevertheless, oh oh.

You took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star,

But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back,

down to this cold, cold world,

Ooh you took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star,

But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back,

down to this cold, cold world.

NOTE: Somewhere he chose to fit in the words, "Black Ass"

Africa vs Las Vegas


I was not making any plans to see Stevie Wonder in Las Vegas, because I saw him twice already this year and I'm only an east coast fan. Me and the west coast don't match. We just don't coordinate that well together. However, I made the mistake of telling my mother, the 72 year old tennis fanatic, that Stevie will be in Vegas. Somehow she has gone and scraped together the money for the airfare to Vegas. Now, I've got to go, after all it was me who told her that I can get the tickets and a room easily. It was my mother who bought me my first Stevie Wonder Album, Innervisions (the greatest album ever made), 30 years ago when I was a little girl, I might owe it to her.

I had every intentions of saving my money for a trip to Africa. You see, even though I do love Stevie Wonder, I'm not a one dimenisional Stevie Wonder fangirl, (am I too old to be called a fangirl?), I'm a fan of great music and spirituality. Stevie mixes both with perfection, just listen to his, "A Time to Love" Album.

I'm trying my best to get to the Dagara Cultural Festival in Burkina Faso, Africa. For me, this is a spiritual journey. The Dagara Cultural Festival is an attempt to interest youth in the values of the traditions of their ancestors so that they can preserve it in themselves amid the sweeping changes of modernity.

However, my mother is intent on going to Vegas, she's fired up and ready to go. I put it in her head, that Las Vegas was the place to be, the same way that she nourished my love for Stevie Wonder, those many years ago. In the interim, I have neglected to share with her my spiritual journey. I had my Africa trip on a "need to know" basis. Now I know, that she needed to know.

With her being a little old church lady from South Carolina, would she understand my need to travel to a foreign land and not go to Vegas, to scream and shout for one more song from Stevie Wonder?

How can I break it to her?

Shout-Outs
I would like to thank my newest congregant, CARL E DANIELSEN. He joined the "Church of Stevie Wonder", sometime last week.

I would also like to thank the person who purchased, "The Secret Life of Plants" from my Amazon.com link. I actually played this Album all weekend. Note: All sales are handled by third-party, Amazon.com

I've enjoyed two Stevie Wonder concerts this year!



I've enjoyed two Stevie Wonder concerts this year in Connecticut and Atlantic City, got this fabulous t-shirt with Braille on the front and back.

I want to thank Stevie Wonder for his beautiful music which has nourished my soul. His music has inspired me spiritually and I'm so happy to have been blessed to hear him live twice this year.

Stevie, whatever you do, never stop writing, never stop recording, never stop singing, and never stop performing. If you decide to tour the east coast again, next year, I'll be amongst the first to get tickets!

I downloaded the Natural Wonder Album to always remember the AWESOMENESS of a Stevie Wonder live performance.

Amazing Stevie!


I just got back from Stevie Wonder's Atlantic City Concert, his voice is timeless. These 3 Things I Loved:

1. He got down on one knee to play "Boogie Reggae Woman" on his harmonica! I could have sworn he was playing it like that just for me. Oh! Stevie! I do! DO I DO!

2. He stopped the show, to let his daughter wipe the sweat from his beautiful brow, I wished that was my duty. His daughter is extremely beautiful, just like her dad, but I still would have loved to wiped Stevie's brow.

3. He played two of my favorite songs, "Tuesday Heartbreak" from his "Talking Book" Album and "My Love is on Fire" from his "A Time to Love" Album.

I picked up 3 Stevie T-shirts which had braille writing all over the back with his concert dates. My next paycheck has his Las Vegas concert written all over it. He's playing at the MGM Grand Nov. 28th. Life is good. Thank You Stevie!

FRIDAY FUNDAY in ATLANTIC CITY


Tonight, I'm stepping out on the town in Atlantic City to check out, once again, the great Stevie Wonder! He will be in concert at the Borgata, the very swanky Borgata, I might add. I can't afford to stay there so I'm staying at the Trump Marina, down the street. I'm talking my 16 year old neice, to introduce her to a Stevie Wonder live! She's already a fan, but I want her to experience Stevie Wonder live and in living color!

I'm listening to Funday, from the Jungle Fever Album, as I get ready...

The Concert was a Spiritually Renewing Event!


Stevie Wonder is a magical human being. Last night, I went to his concert and he transported me to a musical realm called, "The Natural Most High". I had a natural high all night long. I was so energized by his musical genius, that I didn't get to sleep until 4:00 am in the morning, yearning for more. My entire body was buzzing with excitement long after the concert was over.

The man, (God?) , performed musical miracles for 3 hours and had people begging for more. I need you Stevie!, I need you Stevie!, I need you Stevie! I was happier than the morning sun!

He looked good, he sounded good, and he entertained good. I still can't believe the range of his voice! I was in the building listening and I still can't believe it!

He brought the house down several times last night with "Higher Ground", "Boogie On Reggae Woman", "For Once In My Life"
('sang' Stevie style, of course, with the phuckin' breaks off!), "Superstition", "Sucker For Your Love" , What the Fuss", "Signed, Sealed, Delivered", "As", and "My Cherie Amour". I think I lost about 5 pounds dancing! I was happier than the stars above!

I zoned out several times and I loved when Stevie said, "Now, Class!", when we wouldn't stop screaming with pleasure. I murmured, "oooh, aahhh, oooh, aahhh, aahhh, and screamed, I Love You Stevie!", without realizing it. My Bad. Everytime he whipped out that harmonica, I think I had an orgasm.

I cried when he performed 2 songs from his upcoming Album, "The Gospel Inspired by Lula". I cried. What would a concert be without raw emotion?

The spotlight was left on his piano as he left the stage, and people started chanting, "Stevie, Stevie, Stevie". If he sang for 24 hours, people would still beg for more. Last night, he performed about 30-35 songs, and people still wanted more. I would have liked to hear more songs from the, "A Time to Love" Album, or "A Seed a Star!" from the "Journey Through the Secret life of Plants" Album, but, oh well.

Stevie Wonder Concert Oct. 22nd 2009 at MGM Grand at Foxwoods: The show was sold out, the hotel was fully booked, and I was there in the presence of a bonafide, certified, not-to-be denied genius!!! I feel blessed.

Stevie promised to come back to the MGM Grand at Foxwoods every year! I want to be in the Stevie Zone! (Stevie style, of course, with the phuckin' breaks off!)

Stevie Wonder and Bob Nesta Marley



Good Morning!
The smiles on these two beautiful men are incredible.
Listen to Bob and Stevie perform "I Shot the Sheriff," live in Kingston, Jamaica
1975
Stevie loved Reggae and was greatly influenced by Bob Marley. Their friendship and kinship in music led Stevie to write the incredible smash hit, which I love to pieces, "Master Blaster" on the "Hotter Than July" Album. The album cover currently is a much sought after collectors item, because the cover artwork features the larger than life iconic image of Stevie Wonder! Braids, Beads, Glasses, and all! You gotta love it.

What Were You Doing at Age 16?




In this video Stevie Wonder, at the age of 16, has the poise and intelligence of a man twice his age. I love the way that he expresses himself and the voice! The voice is superb! The song that he is singing, "Uptight", was written and produced, in 1965 when he was 15, it was a number 1 hit, (what were you doing at 15?) This young man could have been anything that he set his mind too, his love of music was a blessing to us all. Simply amazing grace.

Stevie did go on to college, attending the University of Southern California, where he studied Music Theory. Please take a listen and let's push our children to succeed. We can use Stevie Wonder as a template for greatness.

This whole world would be all about God's love again





What if someone made a soda,

That caused everyone to love each other,
Oooh, oh yeah, it sounds good, to me,
And if just a tiny pill can make us see,

That we're truly sisters and brothers,
Oooh, oh yeah it sounds so nice to me,

And we would have no time to waste,
On trivial things like war and pain,
'Cos we'd be filled with joy to know,
Through love the universe we've changed,

To being all about the love again,
All about the love my friend,
This whole world will be all about the love again,
We'd be all about the love again,
No need to pretend,
This whole world would be all about the love again,

What if someone came up with a lotion,

That made everybody start sharing,
Oooh, oh yeah it feels so good to me, yeah yeah,
And some irresistible cologne that with one spray,

There'd be no second thought of caring,
Oooh, oh yeah it sounds so fine to me,

And gone forever would be the day,
Of hunger, homelessness and shame,
'Cos for every single heart,
The promise of endless love will reign,

We'd be all about the love again,
All about the love my friend,
This whole world will be all about the love again,

We'd be all about the love again,
No need to pretend,
This whole would be all about the love again,

All about the love again,
All about the love my friend,
This whole world will be all about the love again,

We'd be all about the love again,
No need to pretend,
This whole world would be all about God's love again,

October is the Month of Stevie Wonder on the East Coast.



The Weeks of Wonder begin.

This week I will be attending Stevie Wonder's concert at Foxwood's MGM Grand in Connecticut. The week after that, I have tickets to his Atlantic City concert in Jersey. Do I think it's a wise investment to spend a good portion of my paycheck on Stevie Wonder concerts? Let the Church of Stevie Wonder say, "Hell YES!"

Food? Phuck it!, Clothing? I'd rather go naked!

I feel very blessed and very thankful to be able to listen and support my favorite artist and his music, it is very healing for me. Nothing feels better than getting a natural high while listening to "Higher Ground" or "A Time to Love", and there is something sexual about the entire, "Music of My Mind" Album, I get a sexual healing every time I hear a song from that Album. Oh, oh, oh, Stevie!

This is my way of saying, Thank you Stevie!

Side Note: This morning, I had to unplug my schitt to get my carpet cleaned, (no, not that carpet), the carpet on my floors. I'm going through Stevie Wonder withdrawals while I wait for the carpet to dry. The neighbors are catching a break from my "Master Blaster".

I'm still trying to rebuild my Stevie Wonder collection , Here is what I ordered last week:

Talking Book $10.97
,

Fulfillingness' First Finale $7.97

,


Music of My Mind $7.97

Listening to Stevie Wonder "Contusion"


This morning I woke up to "Contusion" the instrumental jazz complilation by Stevie Wonder. He wrote it after his near fatal car accident in 1973. I could not believe my eyes as I read it in the newspaper, "Stevie Wonder in a Coma". Stevie became part of my nightly teenage prayers, "please God, let me meet Michael Jackson, please God, make sure Stevie Wonder is okay, please God, I want to dance on Soul Train"

Stevie was in a coma for 4 days. Thank God for his brother Calvin who saved his life. I remember those days, my family and I were on a natural high of watching Stevie turn the Grammy's into the Stevie Wonder Show. He bought some joy inside our tears.

Let the Church of Stevie Wonder say, AMEN!



He came out of the coma, and wrote this amazing piece.

The reason I started this Stevie Wonder fan site is because Stevie's music has been a blessing to me. His music is an experience that nourishes the deepest crevices of my soul.

I wanted to share my enjoyment of Stevie Wonder's music with others in hopes that it would help heal the world.

The Stevie Wonder Music Store - This is a true Stevie Wonder fansite, there are no free downloads of Stevie's music here. If you love Stevie Wonder's music, buy it! Stop bootlegging Stevie's schitt!

For God's sake , you cannot be a true fan of Stevie Wonder, if you do not own, "Innervisions" (the greatest album ever made) and "A Time to Love." If you own a bootleg copy of My Cherie Amour, your ass really need to burn in hell. All monies from the sale of CD's and MP3's sold on this site are handle by third party, Amazon.com and goes directly into Stevie's pocket.

Words of Wonder: "If Your Love Cannot Be Moved"



"If Your Love Cannot Be Moved",
(featuring Kim Burrell),

You can't say we shall and not fight through hell,
You can't say we will and not dare to deal,
You can't shout out peace and then vanish in the crowd,
You can't ride the storm without some effect,
You can't steal the spoil and not pay the debt,
You can't wave a sign that spells "evil" and feel truly proud ,
You can't sing a song with no melody,
You can't say we're one without unity,
You can't form a line if you're too scared to stand alone,
You can't pray for grace and then smack her face ,
You can't speak of hope and then crack a joke,

You can say you're there but time knows how much you've grown,
Put a face to your somebody,

Can you say your name? ,
Or would you rather stay unknown? ,
Can you show your face? ,
Or are you fearful of it shown? ,
Can you feel your heart? ,
Or does it beat for you alone? ,
Lift your glass up high,
Say that your truth will never lie,
If your love cannot be moved,

You can't look at me and not see yourself,
You can't say "for them" and not for who else,
You can't truly bless and not bless the good of all,
You can't serve the rich and desert the poor,
You can't hear their cries and just close your door,
You can't say you're down and not take it to the wall,
You can't benefit from one's detriment ,
You can't find the serum and not cure the sick,
You can't free the slave to enslave them differently,
You can't see the right only from your sight,
You can't see the wrong and just go along,
Or is that the way you would want your fate to read,
Put a face to your somebody,

Can you say your name? ,
Or would you rather stay unknown? ,
Can you show your face? ,
Or are you fearful of it shown? ,
Can you feel your heart? ,
Or does it beat for you alone? ,
Lift your glass up high,
Say that your truth will never lie,
If your love cannot be moved,

You can't make a pledge and then flip the script,
You can't say the words and not move your lips,
You can't be confused and still say you understand,
You can't be a friend but not through thin and thick,
You can't be a click but in danger split,
You can't evenly share and then grab the biggest hand,
You can't say you do but then show you don't,
You can't say you will and make sure you won't,
You can't want for change and not do what you need to do,

You can't give up all and then take back all you give,
You can't live to die but you can die to live,
Or is that too much to ask of the you in you?,
Put a face to your somebody,

Can you say your name? ,
Or would you rather stay unknown? ,
Can you show your face? ,
Or are you fearful of it shown? ,
Can you feel your heart? ,
Or does it beat for you alone? ,
Lift your glass up high,
Say that your truth will never lie,
If your love cannot be moved,

The Wonder Years: Ted Hull talks about tutoring Stevie Wonder




Ted Hull is retired teacher who tutored little Stevie Wonder from the 5th Grade to High School. Mr. Hull also has a severe visual impairment and has recently became an author. He has self-published “The Wonder Years: My Life and Times with Stevie Wonder.” He tells the story of Motown’s earliest days, when talented young people like Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, the Temptations and Stevie Wonder were working hard to become famous during a time when segregation and prejudice ran rampant. Hull was a shaping force in Wonder’s life as a private teacher and constant companion for six years during the 1960s.

A Day in the Key of Life: Stevie Wonder at Long View Farm




As I watched this video yesterday morning, I couldn't get the thought out of my mind about how much it cost to fly these people out to meet with Stevie Wonder. Those lucky bastards. My next thought was that Stevie is a marketing genius!

Shot in 16mm film by a L.A. film crew hired by the recording artist, Stevie Wonder. Interesting audio clips from the album "Songs in the Key of Life". 1976. The film is 30 minutes, and 40 seconds.

Simply Wonderful



The tickets for Stevie Wonder's 2nd set of concerts in Atlantic City was finally released this morning, and I picked up 3 tickets, and a whole new set of girlfriends are coming with me. Unfortunately, the Halloween tickets were sold out before I could purchase them, but these tickets are better than nothing, and I have great seats! I can't wait to dance in the aisle, because, Stevie knows how to rock a concert like know one else can.

Side Note: I wonder if anyone has ever told Stevie that he is a beautiful man. Musical Genius, yes, I know everybody tells him that but, this brother looked good in his 20's, and now he's all grown and sexy. Simply wonderful.

Stevie Wonder Atlantic City


I'm purchasing my tickets tomorrow!
Stevie will be playing the Borgata Event Center on Halloween night and I'm so there! What an exciting way to spend All Hallows Eve! I'm picking up three tickets, taking the girls, and sleeping over night. Thank goodness it's a Saturday night, so I don't have to take off from work. As usual, I have my playlist request, all of Innervisions and all of A Time to Love.

NEWSFLASH: The Halloween tickets are SOLD OUT!

The Men, Who Could Play Stevie Wonder, In The Movie!

The men who would be Wonder! ,

I received the usual email about Eddie Murphy and Anthony Hamilton. I have some words to say about these picks, "All BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT LOOK ALIKE!". Eddie Murphy does a good impression of Stevie but, that's as far as it goes, it's a gimmick.

Anthony Hamilton, who I love, is short, scruffy, and does not sound like Stevie. Stevie Wonder is tall and has movie star good looks, if he was short and scruffy, Berry Gordy would have shown him the door. Like I said, I do love Anthony Hamilton, but he can't play Stevie in the movie.

Last but not least, someone had the nerve to send me Samuel Jackson's name. Lord have mercy on that person's soul. First of all, Stevie does not have a gap in his teeth, I have a gap, so I know gaps, Samuel Jackson has a big gap in his front teeth for crying out loud!!! Second of all, Samuel Jackson's looks have been ravished by drugs and you can tell. He has kicked the habit, thank God, but he does not have the so-fresh and so-clean Stevie looks. (I know, I know, Stevie has started drinking wine, I wish he would stop that schitt.) Stevie Stop! Thirdly, Samuel Jackson is old, Stevie is grown and sexy, there is a difference.

These are my picks to play Stevie, in my expert opinion. Three of the men are from the movie, "The Temptations". They all look good, they can act, and they can sing.

Charles Malik Whitfield,



D.B. Woodside,



Terron Brooks,



Isaiah Washington,



Andre3000, He disrespected Rosa Parks, and his country ass, sounds country, but he does look like Stevie.,



Okay, those are my picks, what are yours?
