<Smile Jamaica Treehouse of Horror Style: After 420 like after Halloween>

Greetings,

All black wax: 7″, 10″, 12″, Long Players.

The Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives is under construction, so here is all my 420 black wax: Two 3 feet tupper ware bins, A box and a Record Bag of 7″ Jamaican Jukebox. Two bags of 12″ and 10″ disco jams and a patridge inna pear tree.!

But wait! There’s more. Stitched in between the seven Leaf vinyl is all my favorite move clips, soundbytes, bongrips and Jeff Sessions anti-MJ PSAs.

<Parents beware!>

He’s probably the biggest toker of ’em all

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-pril 15, 2017: Asteroid Missed….This Time!

 

Photo of asteroid “near miss”: Apr. 19th, 2017

Greetings,

Spent 4/20 having breakfast with a friend. He said, “You almost sound disappointed that asteroid missed hitting Earth yesterday”.

<Asteroid Attack vs 4/20 Smile Jamaica>

I replied that I just am so cranky about corporate media vs. fake news that when the “Mainstream” Media is telling us that asteroid was gonna miss, my natural skepticism kicked in.

Why should I trust the same bunch who told me Hillary Clinton had a 98.3% chance of winning the Presidency

My friend replied, ‘You need to cut back on your fake news intake. It’s making you paranoid.”

<One’s man’s propaganda is Smile Jamaica’s first option news source>

I scoffed. Never! RT, Al Jazeera, Zero Hedge. Fiya bun New York Times, Washington Post and CNN.

I finished my coffee, paid the check and headed home to celebrate the “near miss” by sifting through the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives for a Vinyl Only 420 special on Apr. 22nd.

Better re-calibrate your aim next time, Aliens!

bless, robt

Is It the End? Asteroid Attack: 4/19/2017

Greetings,

Massive Asteroid set to Attack Earth

Self-described ‘expert’ Dr Dyomin Damir Zakharovich believes the asteroid will have the impact of a huge atomic weapon, boiling the seas and causing catastrophic tsunamis.

Hot take: “NASA is lying through its teeth”

The irony is delicious.

Our taxes are due today. Yet a massive asteroid is poised to strike the planet tomorrow on the 19th. So no 4/20, 420, 4:20 for the weedsters.

Reggae singjay, Sister Carol, talks about how space travel is an offense to Jah. How dare mankind trod upon Jah’s Heavenly abode? Learn from her cautionary lyrics…

Trusted news source, The Sun, tells us what the fake news/corporate media continues to lie about

<Corporate media on imminent Asteroid attack; 86 sec.>

Jahdgement Day soon come for arrogant mankind trodding pon Jah’s domain

When will asteroids hit Earth. Not if

And don’t get me started on NASA. Those charlatans have been lying to us since the bogus moon landing

Apollo 11 Moon Landing fraud

Apollo 11 bullshit

NASA says there is nothing to worry about, “near miss”, they say. I don’t believe them anymore than I believed the Presstitutes that told us Hillary Clinton had a 98.3%  chance of winning the Presidency against the Cheetolini. Liar, liar pantsuit on fire

“You’ve got fake news in my alternative facts!”

***

All our space endeavors are meant for one thing. Planetary defense against Alien vengeance. Ronald Reagan created the Strategic Defense Initiative not to stop Putin’s KGB, but wanted to give the technology to the Soviet Union to coordinate Earth defenses alongside the Americans.

False Flag Alien Attack

So my advice?

  • Kiss your kids, call your parents, tell them you love them
  • Don’t pay your VISA bill yet
  • Say a prayer to the Skygod of your choosing
Praise Anu! Please guide the planet killing Asteroid away from Earth

Ask the dinosaurs how their “near miss” with an Asteroid worked out for them.

bless, robt

 

 

 

 

 

Smile Jamaica Ark-ives: Digital Dubplate Cannabliss Preview!

 

Greetings,

KRCL is able to spin Smile Jamaica because of its Non-Profit license. That means 2 shows in the Spring and 2 in the Fall are devoted to listener pledges so I can get 60 months of creative roots and dubbers.

Since my livelihood is a sound editor, it is easy for me to hunker down in my own studio, The Secret Dubratory, 

to craft what I call Digital Dubplates so I have weekly content (1 million minutes listened on Mixcloud!) on the Smile Jamaica Podcast.

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (March 18, 2017): From Yodel Reggae to Sumerian Flood stories!

Greetings,

I know it’s spring when I have to go to the pharmacy for that behind the counter Claritin D

Love that extra hour of daylight on Smile Jamaica

I am going through a home remodel and have packed up my records until my room addition is completed. As I pack I pull out gems.

Musical nostalgia. Most of the shops I stocked the Ark-Ives from are long gone. Everything else is pieced out as single items on ebay.

Bim Sherman Century bought for $20 from UK now fetches $1250 on ebay.

When I started collecting Reggae in the mid 80s, people would sell their entire black collection for seed money for these new novelty items: the compact disk. So I scooped up as much Reggae vinyl as Ronald Reagan’s student loan check would allow. Bargain basement price.

I have records I bought for $4 in perfect condition that sell for $400 now in lousy condition.

In 2017 of all ironies: The Compact Disks is going the way of the dodo and vinyl (and vinyl only Record Huts) are coming back.
