Moving Up The Goode Latter

How many more times can this happen I’ve asked myself this morning? The goode folks at Murphy Goode have done it to me again, thank Goddess!

It wasn’t too long ago that an iconic musical figure passed away, leaving me and a huge chunk of the planet at emotional odds. Downright, sad. Enter, A REALLY GOODE JOB’s Top 50 announcement which thankfully and gratefully included yours truly, Kamary Phillips aka MURPHY GOODE TV.

Though elated, I was equally deflated fully feeling the loss of the late-great Michael Jackson. That was then, this is now. Only a couple hours ago, during Michael’s moving memorial (yeah, I teared) I received an email, this email to be exact;
mgtv-top 10 letter

And once again cool David Ready Jr. and the gang caught me completely off my emotional guard. As I write this post I am slowly shedding the mourning and embracing the glory. Give me a second, I’ll get there.

Thanks for reading and believing.

Cheers,
Kamary Phillips, WCLC

16 Social Sites And Counting-Murphy Goode TV | MGtv

Whew, again!
We’re winding down to another moment of truth and I, like many, are anxiously excited about what is to come. As I prepare my own TOP 10 countdown list, hungover from last night’s 4th of July bash and as the folks at Murphy Goode consider me as a potential Top 10 candidate for A REALLY GOODE JOB and possibly hiring me as Murphy Goode’s Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent, I think it’s important to be aware of and acknowledge the 16 MGtv social networking sites and platforms I have established thus far, essentially being the foundation and building blocks I could expand upon over the next months to come while adding others during my term holding this position. Just a thought of course. Either way, I hope my efforts make a positive impact on the review team and reveals some sense of my broader vision to continue transporting the Murphy Goode brand across the virtual land. Now back to my personal Top 10 Countdown which will be presented here and on MGtv Monday afternoon (July 6th) sometime. Click around and enjoy!

I’m In, However Down

Ok folks. It’s official. I’ve made the top 50, rather TAP FIDDY in the race for “A Really Goode Job“. Just as the official notice states, from almost 2000 applicants, myself and another 49 peeps have somehow shined our way through.

Unfortunately for me I’m not able to rejoice as I should and most certainly normally would, as it’s also more than official that someone that has meant a lot to me has passed away today and I can’t help but be affected by his passing. Yes, I speak of the late, great Michael Jackson. I know my relationship with him is akin to that which hundreds (not thousands or millions) of others have experienced with the young 50 year old over the many years of being what we all, as artists, consider as a mutual colleague; not just as being record label mates in the past. I, as many others have felt, had an artistic connection with the reclusive genius.

I’ll leave it there as essentially this posting is meant to acknowledge my accomplishment of getting this far in the Murphy Goode Winery campaign. I’m proud of me and deep down I feel good about MG’s choice of including me in all of this and frankly (as I stated to them) I believe I’m the person for this job. Period. I just wish I could truly experience the joy I would normally rejoice in. I’d crack a bottle of whatever and bask in the glory of this first hurdle. I wish I could. Perhaps in the next days, I’m quite sure. Give me a moment.

The proof in the pudding.

The proof in the pudding.

I am absolutely thankful, humbled and dumbfounded all at once. If you haven’t already and if the spirit moves you, lend me your vote please.
Cheers!

David Ready Jr. Interview – An MGtv Exclusive

Whew! That’s the sound of exhaling.

The votes are in and it’s unanimous. I’ve done a really good(e) job with this last piece, “David Ready Jr. Interview – An MGtv Exclusive.” I come to that conclusion based solely on the dozens of friendly replies and feedback since publishing that content earlier this morning.

Thanks so much to everyone who took almost 18 minutes out of their lifespan to hang out with me in a car driving down to drill Mr. Ready on all things Goode. Specifically “A Really Goode Job”, which like hundreds of others, I am doing my absolute best and under often difficult circumstances to get.

If you too are an applicant for this gig then likely the last two clips are all you’re interested in. That’s where the “straight from the horses mouth” begins. If you are a fan, or simply appreciate story telling then by all means start at the beginning. It is there you’ll get the most out of my experience that day and my vision.


New to town and country, I’m not by any means ‘set up’ here. Low on dough and without wheels, I’ve felt a bit like a loser on several occasions considering the residence of the State of California seem to be driven by money hungry peeps with expensive leased autos. As an Ameripean, I don’t roll like that. At least not yet.

The only reason I managed to make it to Ralph’s in Newport Beach last Friday was because the kid whose couch I’m currently surfing on was sick and did not go to work, thus his car was not being used. After promises of buying dinner and a pitcher of Newcastle for the next Lakers game he agreed to let me steer his silver bullet south. The rest, as we say, ist vergangenheit.


In this clip (2a) David Ready Jr. answers questions such as; Who had the original campaign idea? Who will make the final decision? Why the delay from the original schedule?
David Ready Jr. also clears up rumors that claimed he was not satisfied with applicants wine knowledge in general. Did you know David Ready Jr. is a mad Dead fan?


In this clip (2b)I ask David Ready Jr. who his favorite candidate for “A Really Goode Job” is thus far. Yes, he answered. No, it was not me. He also outlines what he’s personally looking for. Ever seen a bottle signing before? For me it was a new concept and no one does it like Dave Ready Jr.


In closing, let me say thank you very much for you time and feedback. A special thanks to those who DM’d me with questions for Dave Ready Jr. that day. Given that the application is nearing an end, this MAY LIKELY be my last Vlog, since I do need to focus a bit on making a living sooner than later. But it does get kinda addicting. 🙂 Worst case, it’s back to the EU for some weeks to work straight through until I can afford to return. That would give me an excuse to meet the very talented woman behind one of my favorite GOODE SPOTS. Check out Andy’s Goode Life Blog. She’s was the first stranger to cheer me on and hasn’t stopped since. Thanks girl! Hope we can work on a project together someday. Well, if anyone could win the MG gig without having a video it would have to be Andy. Respect.

On another note related to positive energy, interestingly enough there have been other video production offers which have come and might pan out to filling that new Chase bank account I opened last week. That would be sweet. And that’s certainly a result of all of us making this thing so present online as of late. The net’s a big space after all. So, thanks to all who encounter MGtv and leave not feeling worse for it. That’s all I can hope for.

Wish me luck one way or another, would ya’! If you’ve not yet seen my original application video and would like to lend me your vote, do it this week please as Friday is the last day. Thanks again.

Now back to my red Firestone. It was cheaper than the MG. *wink*
