Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-bruary 11, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): Chunky Air/Inversion Galore!

download-88
Inversion galore. Chunky air inna Salt Lake Gritty

<Smile Jamaica likes his air like his peanut butter: smooth nah chunky>

Greetings,

I think that rodent in Pennsylvania is road kill. Because ever since Ground Hog day happened, the weather has been much better in the Salt Lake Valley.

Praise Jah, I don’t have respiratory issues. But where I work has been devastated this winter. I have had meetings cancelled because colleagues and/or their kids were sick.

I live in the valley and work at the Univ. of Utah up on the hill. Looking down from on high you really see that awful smog that even has me hacking and wheezing.

So last Saturday it was great to bust out of the house around 10am and see something I hadn’t seen in a month: blue skies and clouds. The weather has been almost delightful since.

So let’s enjoy a mild Jah-bruary with Roots Reggae. Fiyah bun the Inversion Galore!

bless, robt

Feb. 6, 1945

<Woodstock? Nah, Bobstock/Bob-stalk; 12 sec.>

Greetings,

It was Spring of 1984 in Bozeman, Montana. After a brutal winter, students at Montana State University thaw out thanks to warm air from Chinook wins.

The local record store, Cactus, was two blocks from my apartment. I walked in and right on the front display was the gatefold vinyl of Bob Marley’s Legend.

I picked it up sight unseen.

download-86

I took it to the counter and paid for it immediately. I wish I could say that was the catalyst moment that led to being a Reggae Deejay — I love all kinds of music in the mid 80s: The Clash, Neil Young and 60’s Rolling Stones especially.

It took 2 years for me to have the Hallelu-JAH moment with Black Uhuru’s Anthem….

So we celebrate Bob Marley’s Birthday with Tributes. I wanted to do Bob Marley A (Ambush) to Z (Zion Train. But the Digital Millennium Copyright Act won’t let me…

<How the Digital Millennium Copy-WRONG Act screws over Bob Marley; 22 sec.>

Bobstock on Smile Jamaica!

Enjoy the Marley family and Bob’s bredrins and sistrens in celebrating his legacy as the King of Reggae!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-nuary 28, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): Extraterrestrials vs. Trump!

58908209c461881e4f8b463d
Jan. 20th, 2017 — day Trump was installed — UFO sighting from NASA’s video feed. None dare call it swamp gas! NASA panicked and cut the video feed. Do not scoff!

Greetings,

First week of President Trump. Baaah, don’t want to talk about it. 2016 Presidential Election: Ebola vs. Bubonic Plague. Gonna be a brutal four years. At least we have Reggae Music to remind us. Bobbylon Chants down Babylon!

Jamaican saying: Same thing for breakfast, same thing for tea:

Keith Poppin

What I find interesting? As a conspiracist, Trump’s election signaled the collapse of the Deep State: Neoliberal politics, irregardless of Political Party, enforced through Neocon Foreign Policy.

Bush gave us Afghanistan and Iraq 2.0. Obama wrecked Libya, Syria, Iraq 3.0, Yemen and Ukraine on his watch. How a Nobel Peace Prize winner got Cold War 2.0 off the ground with Russia is quite the feat of Deep State gymnastics!

Our first black President droned so many brown Middle Easterners that he literally ran out of bombs his last year in office! WTF?

yes-we-can-obama-drone-memes-7
In 2008 I compared this guy to Bob Marley. But that was five wars ago

Joe Sixpack and Sally Housecoat basically went outside the duopoly of Republicrats vs. Democans. Shockwaves throughout the MIC/SIC and bankster class.

So if that rigid system is in tatters, there is no clandestine force to keep us in the dark about Extraterrestrials.

First we had the incredible footage captured by the Chilean Navy: 9 plus minutes of Infrared camera action on a UFO. No effing swamp gas, or ball lightning or bumbaclaat weather balloons.

Chilean Naval UFO incident

Just while we were processing that compelling visitation (other than Huff Post, mostly a news embargo on the story), now NASA captured video footage of another UFO “probe” (pun intended). 21 sec.

Smile Jamaica’s fave “fake news” site: RT – UFO stylee

unnamed
I call bullshit, NASA! Quit peddling fake news that Aliens aren’t real

What does any of this have to do with last week’s Ark-Ive of Smile Jamaica. Absolutely nothing!

But I am hoping for more encounters as the shit-stem (as Peter Tosh says) continues to crumble.  UFO sightings will lead to a full on Columbus style emergence to fill the political gap Trump’s howling Presidency has brought about.

Let us hope the Anunnaki (those who came from the sky) treat us better than Columbus did the Native Arawak and Caribs and Africans enslaved in the Middle Passage.

Not that we would deserve their mercy.

Forward ever backwards never!

Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Snowbound Excursion – Jah-nuary 27, 2017!

dscn1134

Greetings,

I knew it was gonna be trouble. Last Saturday we got 6 inches in the Salt Lake Valley. My garage is in the alley way. Dangerous for getting high centered and sliding into power poles.

So I waited for a lull in the storm and moved my car to the front street.  My street was unploughed and there was snow accumulated over the curb.

Loaded up my stacks of wax and suitcase of disks. And headed for KRCL.….

Goosed my All Wheel Drive Subaru to plow through virgin snow. Best intentions….. 4 wheels on top of snowpack just skidded me to the curb and I was wedged in a snow drift and dead in the water.

Two hour wait for AAA. First show I had been a no show for in 27+ years.

So after I got towed out and back into my garage, I hunkered down in my Secret Dubratory and pulled together 3 hours of Digital Dubplate sound.

Snowmageddon Stylee!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-nuary 14, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): I told you UFO’s exist!

ufo-memes

Greetings,,

2017 is already off to a wacky start. President Donny Tiny Hands isn’t weird and wild enough, looks like the break down of the Deep State have emboldened Aliens to start revealing themselves to us.

The Chilean Navy captured a UFO with 10 minutes of compelling footage using infrared cameras.

Watch this and it becomes clear. It isn’t swamp gas, or light refraction or ball lightning, weather balloons.

Although the weaksauce debunkers are already claiming it was a plane. Trust your eyes.

<Extraterrestrials 1, Swamp Gas 0; 50 sec.>

As if UFO’s aren’t enough, we get President Trump today (Jan. 20). As a Progressive, I have offered my humble services to our new President in a way that one of my Reggae idols Prince Buster did to Jamaica in the 60’s.

I volunteer to be Trump’s Minister of Ganja & Space Exploration; 44 sec.

I can advise our President why they are here….

bless, robt

Chilean Naval UFO – Do Not Scoff! UFO-ria

Greetings,

I was called a “tin foil hatter” when I told my Liberal friends that Donald Trump would thump Hillary Clinton. And he did. (I voted for Stein btw)

tinfoil-hat
“Vladimir Putin cost Hillary Clinton the election”

Because of the cross over of fake news*, conspiracy theories – Bin Laden on the grassy knoll! and the belief in Ancient Aliens….

*I only read news sources that the corporate media like Wa Poo and the Clinton News Network call fake news. I have called the hairy eyeball on the past 8 years as a Progressive. So I do not trust print media nor cable news.

The Space Dust was never illegal on Nibiru, you earthbums!

Now my UFOria fixation has proven to be well placed in similar ways to my prediction of the impossible – Trump beating Clinton.

Just like I knew that Hillary wasn’t 12 points ahead of The Donald in October, neither is this UFO swamp gas, weather balloons or ball lightning that scoffers use to deny the existence of UFO’s

Maybe Trump in the White House is gonna bring Aliens into world view. Why not,

Let’s Go Out With a Bang!

bless, robt

  • Look to the skies!
  • They exist!
  • Do not scoff!
  • UFO-ria!
